The Bottom Line At $125, the Razer BlackWidow Ultimate is a competitively priced mechanical gaming keyboard in its range. We just wish Razer had done more to set this "Ultimate" edition apart from Razer's more affordable standard BlackWidow. Mechanical keyboards are gaining popularity in circles that miss the tactility of the original IBM Model M, and Rosewill introduces an inexpensive version in the RK-9000. It doesn't have the bells and whistles of competitors like Das Keyboard, but the Cherry Blue switches, molded keycaps, and simple-yet-durable design make the Rosewill RK-9000 an excellent, affordable product to start your click-clack keyboard addiction. The Das Keyboard Model S Professional Silent is aesthetically minimal and designed for keyboard purists who miss the noisy days of the first IBM Model M. Its $135 price tag will deter casual users who can find a cheaper input device with extra features elsewhere, but power typists will find comfort, utility, and nostalgia in the Model S Professional's sleek design and springboard performance. Logitech's K750 wireless solar keyboard gets our Editors' Choice Award for being an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional input devices with convenient extras and an affordable price. Logitech's $200 G19 Gaming Keyboard boasts a built-in color LCD with exciting capabilities, as well as lots of little improvements over previous models. But with few apps--thus far--that take advantage of the screen in a meaningful way, the G19's potential remains largely untapped. Until the community software effort gets rolling, we can't recommend spending this much on a keyboard that, while flashy, has yet to realize its full potential.
