Razer's latest gaming keyboard is water and dust-resistant

Taking it one step further, Razer has now introduced the feature to its mechanical range with its BlackWidow Ultimate redesigned to include IP54.

KitGuru Says: I will admit to have lost a keyboard due to clumsiness of spilling something, and while I'm infinitely more careful given that my livelihood depends on it, these boards would have saved me a lot of hassle. On the surface, not much has changed, aside from the fact that the BlackWidow is now dust- and water-resistant. The number 4 means that the keyboard is protected against water splashed from all directions (8 being the highest number).

While water resistant keyboards aren't a new concept, they have received an increasing amount of attention lately with SteelSeries' Apex 150 and Razer's Cynosa Chroma. "The Razer BlackWidow Ultimate is now more durable than ever and our first mechanical keyboard to incorporate water- and dust-resistant features".

Particularly of interest to gamers will be the mechanical key switches optimized for gaming in this instance, the Razer Green Switch.

The keyboard will also feature Razer's own mechanical switches with an estimated 80 million keystroke lifespan, 10 key roll-over anti-ghosting, a gaming mode option, fully programmable keys, and of course the IP54 rating. You'll be able to configure the backlighting effects and profiles using Razer's Synapse software. Min-Liang Tan, co-founder and CEO of the company added, "We've never stopped making improvements to our gaming keyboards".

You can purchase the new Razer BlackWidow online and right now it is available for $110 (€120).
