Razer's New BlackWidow Ultimate Keyboard Is Water-Resistant

15 November 2017

This is where water-resistant keyboards come in handy. But Razer's new BlackWidow Ultimate gaming keyboard wants to save itself from an untimely death - it's water and dust resistant, making it sturdier than your average set of keys. For those unfamiliar, this means that the keyboard will be both resistant to dust and water, meaning that it should be able to handle spills without the keyboard getting damaged permanently, although we wouldn't advise you to go dunking it underwater just to test it out.

Talking about the specifications, Razer BlackWindow Ultimate comes with Razer Green Mechanical Switches with 50 g actuation force with 80 million keystroke lifespan.
