I've been in the market for my first mechanical keyboard lately, for some gaming on FPSes and work. For a mouse, I know that I'll be getting the 2012 Razer Deathadder. Im not getting the 2013 version because it's twice as much, and I dont like the green color scheme. Plus, I don't need 6400 DPI. For the keyboard, I was thinking a Razer Blackwidow. Im really stuck between all the verisons. Ill break it down...
-Blue color scheme, which will complement the mouse; for an OCD person like me it's more important than you think lol
-A bit cheaper; a lot cheaper if you get the standard version - do I even need backlighting? (see below)
-Glossy finish; everyone complains about fingerprints, but I'm pretty neat and I don't eat at the computer. How much of a difference does a matte finish make?
-Matte finish; how important? (see above)
-Supposedly the backlighting is much better, but how important is backlighting? I don't work in total darkness a lot, and I mostly work during the day, next to a window. After all, backlighting adds quite a bit more to the price.
-Ugly ass green color scheme - doesn't really look good to the eyes, especially with a blue mouse next to it!
Thanks so much for helping me out guys! Everyone's opinion is valued!
does it have to be razer?
if it has to be one of the 2 sounds like you should buy the 2012
What do you mean by, "does it have to be razer?" I settled upon Razer because that seems to be the most popular mechanical keyboard for work and gaming. If you know freddiew on Youtube, they work on their computer 24/7, and game, and they al l use Razer gear. Why do you think I should go with the 2012 version. And what brands other than Razer do you have in mind?
