Woah, you can get the blackwidow x with cherry mx blue switches or razer "clicky" switches. Is razer giving up on their switches ?
I don't think so, it looks like they are playing mind games with the public. If you get a Widow x with the MX switches it will actually cost you $10 less, giving the perception that Razer switches are "Better" since they cost more.

I would get one of these if they had them with Razer Orange or MX Red/Silent switches, unless they do that probably gonna get a different keyboard.

Get the regular Chroma Stealth.. This design is a regression in quality anyways. They should have started with this design on 1.0 and improved to the Regular Chroma later.. The lighting bleeds, no passthrough, no macro keys, and smaller font. It's all regression.

I don't see where they have done away with the mandatory keyboard interpretation software required for programing key output and also had to have an internet connection to work. I like that they moved to the Corsair type deck. But, last year Gskill introduced their idea of a mechanical keyboard. Corsair top deck and onboard memory that can hold three keyboard profiles. Every normal key can be manually programed to multiple keystrokes or the optional software may be used. I have a joke profile that makes my computer difficult to use when I am away.

I am told (by Razer) that there will be Orange-switch variants, too.
