    Razer made waves by designing its own keyswitches, and they're great for gameplay. But you'll want to switch (no pun intended) to something else when you need to type.

    Pros

    • Razer’s switches blend the best aspects of Cherry Blues and Blacks—at least for gaming
    • Attractive, adjustable backlighting
    • Rugged braided cable

    Cons

    • Razer's new keyswitches aren't very good for just typing
    • Indistinct, blurry icons for Caps Lock, Scroll Lock, etc.
