Razer Reveals The BlackWidow V4 Pro
Looks like a great new addition.
Razer™, the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers, today announced the new Razer BlackWidow V4 Pro, a full blown battlestation keyboard packed with features for gamers and PC enthusiasts to perfect their gaming set-up. With the new Razer Command Dial, dedicated macro keys, comprehensive Razer Chroma RGB lighting, Razer Mechanical Switches and dedicated media controls, this is the ultimate keyboard for every PC gamer.
This latest iteration in Razer’s award winning BlackWidow line of keyboards has a host of features to suit every gamer. The Command Dial gives advanced controls and shortcuts for desktop apps and in games. In addition, dedicated macro keys allow for complex actions to be executed with one button press during heated gameplay moments. The keyboard also boasts per-key Razer Chroma RGB lighting and a multi-zone RGB underglow lighting. This allows for near limitless customization options and in-game immersion.
“The BlackWidow line has been loved by gamers ever since it was first launched in 2010,” said Barrie Ooi, Head of Razer’s PC Gaming Division. “The BlackWidow V4 Pro features an easily customizable Razer Command Dial and dedicated macro keys, providing users with even more control. The keyboard also features 3-side keyboard underglow and per-key lighting that works seamlessly with the Razer Chroma RGB lighting ecosystem to offer a truly immersive gaming experience.”
Customization and Control
The Command Dial is preset with 8 default modes, from window zooming to browser tab switching. Furthermore, users can program the dial with up to 100 Custom Modes, allowing them to map both clockwise and counter-clockwise action of the dial to their preferred action. For day-to-day use, users can program multiple application shortcuts, such as Photoshop brush size adjustment, timeline jogging, and more. Each mode can be toggled with a simple click of the Command Dial and easily identified by the color-coded backlight of the dial.
There are 5 macro keys placed to the left of the main keyboard layout for easy access. These can be used to activate complex actions, all programmable either through Razer Synapse or with on-the-fly macro recording. Additionally, the keyboard boasts 3 macro keys along its edge, providing a total of 8 conveniently positioned macro keys on the keyboard.
Immersive Razer Chroma RGB
The BlackWidow V4 Pro is designed for all-out immersion through Razer Chroma RGB. The keyboard comes with per-key lighting, shining brightly through the transparent switch housing for a brighter, more vivid RGB effect. This is amplified by equally bright 38-zone underglow lighting, which is extended onto the magnetically attached plush leatherette wrist rest, giving even more RGB immersion to the user.
Through Razer Synapse, users can not only synchronize all their Razer Chroma RGB enabled devices together, but also with other 3rd party Chroma Connect products. For gamers, there are over 200 Chroma-integrated games, where the RGB lighting reacts according to the actions or situations that are happening in-game.
Packed with Extra Features
The keyboard features the latest generation of Razer’s mechanical switches with the option of Green Clicky switches for tactile feedback, or Yellow Linear switches for a smooth and silent action. Both variants of the switches have undergone further testing and are now rated for up to 100-million keystrokes.
Some other notable features include: USB 2.0 passthrough, detachable Type C connections, a durable 5052 aluminum alloy top case, dual-angle kickstands, and up to 8000 Hz polling rate. Lastly, the keyboard includes 2 layers of sound dampening foam internally and factory-lubricated stabilizers for improved typing acoustics.
Boasting an abundance of macro keys, the new Razer Command Dial, and a full coverage RGB lighting, the Razer BlackWidow V4 Pro is the ultimate immersive battlestation keyboard.
