Razer unveils new BlackWidow gaming keyboard with hot-swappable sockets

Razer lifts the veil off the groundbreaking Razer BlackWidow V4 75%. Embodying the perfect harmony of gaming precision and customization, this keyboard boasts a robust aluminum build, gasket-mounted plate, keys primed with hot-swappable sockets, all-new tactile mechanical switches, and vivid Razer Chroma™ RGB lighting for an experience that stands in a class of its own.

“The BlackWidow V4 75% is the result of Razer listening to the community, seamlessly merging customization with gaming,” said Barrie Ooi, Head of Razer’s PC Gaming Division. “Its hot-swappable architecture, paired with our elite mechanical switches and adaptive Chroma RGB lighting, empowers gamers to tailor a keyboard that’s truly unique to their needs.”

The Hot-Swappable Masterpiece Featuring Razer’s Next-Gen Razer Orange Tactile Mechanical Switches
Coming in both black and white colorways, the Razer BlackWidow V4 75% offers compatibility with 3 or 5-pin switches for even more customizability. Its innovative socketed PCB design empowers users to seamlessly alternate pre-loaded switches with their choice of mechanical alternatives, giving them absolute reign over their keyboard’s feel and responsiveness.

Pre-loaded with Razer’s all-new Orange Tactile Mechanical Switches Gen-3, it features a higher bump point and a cleaner sound profile that resonates with every keystroke. These improvements over the previous generation match the desire for superior tactility that modern gamers crave.

Superior Typing Dynamics and Acoustic Precision
The BlackWidow V4 75% is meticulously engineered with a gasket-mounted FR4 plate, and also features two layers of sound dampening foam. One layer is sandwiched between an already tape-enhanced printed circuit board (PCB) and the FR4 plate, while the other is placed at the bottom of the case to reduce unwanted pinging and reverberation.

The plate-mounted stabilizers also come factory-lubed to perfection for smoother key travel while effectively reducing any unwanted rattling sounds. Additionally, the PCB of this keyboard is also designed to support screw-in stabilizers should users choose to swap out the stock stabilizers. As such, the BlackWidow V4 75% delivers light, balanced keystrokes that resonate with a full, satisfying sound, offering an unparalleled typing experience.

Masterfully Compact, with Stunning Immersive Chroma RGB
The keyboard’s lean 75% layout ensures gamers have all the essential keys while getting maximum mouse maneuvering real estate. Encased in a sturdy 5052 aluminum alloy frame, it champions longevity without compromising aesthetics. Amplified by Razer Chroma RGB™ with a 2-side underglow and per-key lighting, this will transform any battlestation into an aesthetic masterpiece.

Exceptional Gaming Features
The multi-function roller and media keys allow gamers to enjoy convenience for all entertainment needs. At its core, the BlackWidow V4 75% is a keyboard fully packed with premium gaming features including up to 8000Hz polling rate, fully programmable keys via Razer Synapse, Doubleshot ABS Keycaps, N-key rollover and anti-ghosting.

Crafted from the culmination of community feedback and passion, the BlackWidow V4 75% is Razer’s response to the collective call of gamers worldwide. Every detail of this keyboard speaks of Razer’s relentless drive to empower its community with tools rooted in innovation. As the latest legend in the acclaimed BlackWidow V4 pantheon, which already boasts titans like the BlackWidow V4 Pro, and the recent BlackWidow V4 and BlackWidow V4 X, this keyboard stands as a beacon of Razer’s commitment. Each keystroke is a testament to our promise: unparalleled gaming experiences sculpted with precision, quality, and a dash of audacity.
