Razer Blackwidow Ultimate Adds Spill Protection

I'm a simple man. I like simple things, like keyboards that go 'clack' and don't have any bells and whistles. The latest Razer Blackwidow Ultimate mechanical keyboard does one of those things and includes a new feature that I never realised I wanted: spill protection.

Razer's latest keyboard packs a similar list of features to past versions of the Blackwidow Ultimate: Razer Green mechanical switches, programmable keys and a range of lighting settings. The big improvement comes from changes that protect against spills.

The keyboard has an IP54 rating, meaning that it has been tested to provide protection from splashes in any direction and limited protection from dust. You won't be taking this shiny piece of hardware to any pool parties but now you can be less concerned about errant cups of tea.

Razer Blackwidow Ultimate keyboards are available now through Razerzone and will soon be available from Australian retailers for $169.95.



    I used to work in an IT department where we'd get keyboards returned as they had missing keys, paperclips stuck under the keys etc. We'd often build frankenkeyboards and stick them through the dishwasher before handing them out again. They (usually) worked after drying out and looked all sparkly new.
    The point I'm getting at is that often things are more waterproof than the manufacturers are happy to admit.

    I ag ee. I spill bee on my keyboa d all the time and all of them seem to still
    wo k p ope ly.

    I spilt orange juice on my Steelseries M800 (while using it), bottom row of keys are a bit sticky but otherwise works fine (including the lights). Money well spent there :P
