Razer BlackWidow Lite mechanical Keyboard offers peace and quiet

Razer’s newly announced BlackWidow Lite Keyboard sounds like the perfect accessory for people like me who work in corporate or shared office spaces.

Mechanical keyboards are awesome, not just for gaming but also typing and productivity. However, their loud and clicky nature makes them really annoying in quiet office spaces.

The BlackWidow Lite brings the best of both worlds with quiet Orange Mechanical switches combined with o-rings to further dampen the sound. The keyboard comes with more o-rings in the box for extra sound dampening.

Durability looks exceptional with each key capable of living up to 80 million keystrokes.

Even better, the BlackWidow Lite is a compact design,10–Keyless configuration makes it ideal for laptop setups and cramped cubicles.

“We play hard, but we work just as hard,” said Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO.

“One-third of our daily lives are spent in front of desks, so we want you to experience a keyboard that makes typing feel great. The BlackWidow Lite keyboard was engineered to be the perfect companion for work and for play.”

On top of this come all the standard Razer goodness like individually backlit keys controlled via Razer Synapse 3, programmable keys, 1000Hz Ultrapolling and a sturdy detachable braided USB cable for easy storage.

I for one welcome our mechanical over Lords and I can’t wait to get my hands on the BlackWidow Lite.

The BlackWidow Lite is immediately available on the Razer Store for AUD$149.95/ NZ $179.95
