Default Questions about new Keyboard/Mouse/Headset.

Hey guys.

Need to invest in a new set up for my PC gaming and overall PC use.

I'm very much interested in Razer as I know that they are very high quality products.

So far I am interested in the Razer Deathadder 2013, Razer Blackwidow Ultimate 2013, and possibly Razer Carcharias.

Due to the lower costs on Amazon compared to their own site, I've been trying to find them on there. Is THIS keyboard the same as THIS keyboard? Or would the Cherry MX Browns in the stealth variant be better? Too much choice! I need help deciding and knowing what the pros and cons are..

Are you looking for a backlit keyboard? I don't think the one on Amazon is backlit.

The Ultimate is backlit, whereas the regular isn't.

This gives you a good idea of what each switch means and does.

Blacks are usually the best for gaming, but I prefer Blue's for typing (although, I'm not a fan at all of mechanical keyboards).

Just so you know, Razer have been known to have some serious issues with their Blackwidow keyboards. They aren't what they used to be, and I can guarantee that. I would spend more money on your headset than your keyboard anyways.
