Keyboards come in all shapes and sizes; however, the Razer Blackwidow V3 takes petite to a new level. It’s compact enough for any space and versatile enough for all setups. Now. if you are like me, you most likely dislike a cluttered work/play space. This is where the Razer Blackwidow V3 shines.

Coming in at 65% the size of most keyboards, the Razer Blackwidow V3 omits the needless function row, and numpad; however, still manages to squeeze in those much-needed directional arrows. As it is pretty compact, it’s also extremely functional and can pretty much be placed anywhere due to the fact that it features Razer’s Hyperspeed Wireless Technology, which provides the lowest latency I have ever experienced on a gaming keyboard.

This is made possible through an optimised data protocol, ultra-fast radio frequency, and seamless frequency switching in the noisiest, data-saturated environments. Additionally, with Razer’s multi-device support, you can streamline your setup by connecting your wireless mouse and keyboard to a single dongle a feature that can be activated in Razer’s latestHyperSpeed peripherals.

Now, wireless keyboards have not been known to last long; however, the Razer Blackwidow V3 has a battery life of up to 200 hours (depending on your settings) and takes a mere 5 hours to fully charge. While the battery life is superb and charging time is kept at a minimum, the Razer Blackwidow V3 is one tough keyboard. It has a superior build quality and can take a knock.

When it comes to look and feel, the Razer Blackwidow V3 is pretty tactile and clicky. Gotta love those clicks. It also looks great, especially when you switch on the Razer’s Chroma RGB customisable backlighting, which offers up to 16.8 million color options. which not only makes it petite, but super sexy too.

While it is a pretty small keyboard, the only drawback would be getting used to its size. I personally use the Razer Ornata V2. So it did take a while to adjust to it, but after a few days, I can say that I actually fell in love with it… especially when it came to gaming. This was also due to the fact that it is 3X faster than any other wireless gaming keyboard on the market.

Now for those that don’t want to go wireless, Razer has also included a USC-C connection, which also allows you to keep the action going at a fast pace. If you are not using it for gaming, it is also a pretty stylish piece of kit for your work/home office.

As in true Razer style, the keys are also interchangeable. you have two options here: the Razer Green mechanical switches which will allow you to hear and feel the satisfying feedback in every keystroke you make. Then there are the Razer Yellow Mechanical switches that offer a smoother and quieter experience.

Conclusion:
Razer has certainly blown our minds in the past; however, the Razer Blackwidow V3 takes gaming and office work to the next level. It’s sleek, sexy, and an absolute space saver. It’s quick on the drawn and solid enough to take a few bumps and drops.

Overall, if you are looking for a pretty sweet keyboard that takes up minimal space but offers massive features, then the Razer Blackwidow V3 is the keyboard for you.
