I'm by no means a hardcore gamer -- whatever that even means in the growing world of esports and Let's Plays. I'm not travelling to competitive tournaments or staying up nights, bloodshot and caffeinated, playing the latest and greatest RPG or MMO. Yet I do log a considerable amount of Steam hours, and in my amateur pursuits of gaming glory, I've mostly stuck with keyboards included on gaming laptops (small New York apartments abhor gaming rigs). I've used plenty of mechanical keyboards before, but for my gaming needs, nothing ever felt substantially better than what was already attached to my laptop. But after two weeks of toying with Razer's new Blackwidow X Chroma, I'm starting to rethink my position.
