Razer BlackWidow V3 Pro

The device is shipped in an oversized cardboard box, made in the typical black and green color scheme for Razer gaming gadgets. On the top and bottom of the box, there are images of the keyboard, here and on the sides you will find additional information: characteristics, system requirements, a list of key features, including fast data transfer, mechanical switches, double-molded caps.

Inside, covered with a transparent plastic casing and squeezed on both sides by soft dampers, houses the Razer BlackWidow V3 Pro keyboard. Under it, in its own case, there is a wrist rest, a PC connection cable is curled up in a special compartment, and on the inside of the box lid, in a small pocket, you will find a set of documents: stickers, a welcome letter, instructions for use.

The full-size keyboard is designed in a skeleton format with the keys raised above the body for easier cleaning and more expressive backlighting. The case protrudes slightly beyond the key area, but in general the keyboard cannot be called too bulky – it leaves enough space on the table for a mouse and other gadgets.

The lower part of the case is plastic, the upper one, on which the keys are located, is aluminum. This makes the keyboard weighty: rest assured that you won’t be able to accidentally move it while playing. For better grip on the table surface, rubberized legs are provided. Additionally, there are retractable legs on the back of the case, which raise the keyboard (6 ° and 9 °), making it easier to type.

Also on the bottom of the case you will find a small pocket with a snap-off lid, which hides a complete dongle for connecting a keyboard via a 2.4 GHz radio channel.

    The front edge of the device is beveled, in its central part there is an illuminated brand logo. On the left side there is a switch for connection modes (2.4 GHz and Bluetooth), as well as an LED indicating the state of charge of the keyboard. On the back there is a USB-C port for connecting the bundled cable. On the right side there are no elements, except for the volume control wheel slightly protruding outside the body.
  2. The Razer BlackWidow V3 Pro uses ANSI layout, with single row Enter and long left and right Shift. The keys are made of double-molded plastic, rough to the touch. According to the manufacturer, they will never wear off, and even after prolonged use, they will look like you just bought this keyboard. Only Latin characters are highlighted, while the Cyrillic ones are painted on the keys. If you often play at night and actively communicate with your clanmates in the chat, this can be a problem.

And not just for you, but also for your roommates: the Razer Green switches used in this keyboard have a pretty resonant, pronounced click. They operate with a force of 50 g, have a stroke of 4 mm, and give a clear tactile response. This type of switch creates the feeling of a typewriter chirping.

The alternative for the Razer BlackWidow V3 Pro is the 45g Razer Yellow Switches, 3.5mm travel, quieter than green switches. Which switches to choose is up to you.

The caps attach securely to the switches and are very easy to remove: you don’t even need a specialflax key – just pull the key up with a little effort. Long keys are supported by additional holders. BlackWidow V3 Pro – probably the first keyboard in my memory, which does not wobble or rattle “Space”. On the other hand, in my sample, the right Shift works very tightly, if you press the key not in the middle – this causes certain inconveniences during typing.

In addition to the main keys, on the case you will find three multimedia keys responsible for switching and pause of music tracks, as well as a volume control wheel, which also works as a button, turning off and on the sound when pressed. This is a nice addition to the basic keys; in addition, you can customize the multimedia buttons as you want – for example, hang a sequential selection of weapons on the wheel in some shooter.

The Razer BlackWidow V3 Pro comes with a wrist rest: soft foam wrapped in faux leather on a plastic base. It is not magnetised to the case, as is the case with the Razer Huntsman V2 Analog, you can freely move it around the table. At the same time, the stand does not slip thanks to the rubberized feet.

Finally, the cable for wiring and charging the keyboard is wrapped in a tough cloth braid, which is durable and reliable. The USB-C plug is inserted into the corresponding connector on the back of the device, the USB-A connector is plugged into the port on the PC case.

The Razer BlackWidow V3 Pro uses three connectivity options: traditional wired, wireless Bluetooth and 2.4 GHz wireless.

There is nothing to tell about the wired connection – we connect the keyboard and the PC with a wire and use it.
To connect via Bluetooth, you need to move the switch on the left side to the “BT” position and activate the pairing mode by holding down the Fn + 1, Fn + 2 or Fn + 3 keys. Three keyboard shortcuts are available as the keyboard supports connecting to three devices, freely switching between them using the aforementioned shortcuts.
To connect the Razer BlackWidow V3 Pro via radio, you need to insert the complete dongle into a free USB port on your PC and set the switch to 2.4: the keyboard will automatically connect to the dongle.
The BlackWidow V3 Pro is the first Razer keyboard to feature HyperSpeed ​​technology, which the manufacturer claims is three times faster than any other wireless technology. This is achieved by optimizing the data transfer protocol and ultra-fast radio frequency, which together reduce latency to a minimum and increase the stability of the connection.
