Razer Blackwidow V3 Tenkeyless Review, HyperShift, Keyboard, Price
Razer Blackwidow V3 Tenkeyless
Razerthink – Razer introduced its first BlackWidow keyboard in 2010. Consumer standards have changed over the past decade. Expectations have increased, and consumers are becoming more selective when buying keyboards, including the best gaming keyboards. But Razer is here this year with its BlackWidoe keyboard, namely the wireless BlackWidow V3 Pro, wired BlackWidow V3, and the most miniature version, the Razer BlackWidow V3 Tenkeyless ($100 per post).
This is a genuinely excellent gaming keyboard.
very well built, and has good ergonomics, with two tilt settings and an armrest. The Black Widow V3 Tenkeyless has a fully customizable RGB backlight in the Razer Synapse 3 software, and you can set the macro to any key. Provides a lightweight and responsive gaming experience, with no noticeable delay between keystrokes. There is no lost input which is customary for mechanical keyboards that rely heavily on wired connections, and also, this Black Widow V3 Tenkeyless keyboard has no problem with duplicated inputs.
Design Razer Black Widow V3 Tenkeyless
The lightweight and compact form factor and solid, sturdy frame and textured Keycaps feel great; that’s the short explanation. This BlackWidow V3 Tenkeyless keyboard has a high-end build, is mainly made of sturdy plastic, and has a matte black aluminum top plate that shows some flex. The double shot ABS keycaps are textured and non-shiny. Some keys are more extensive than others, namely the spacebar, Shift, and Enter, a little shaky, and the stabilizer on the spacebar vibrates more violently than the other stabilizers.

The incline is very gripping
So it holds up the board well; this version of the TenKeyLes is very light but solid, making it easy to put in a backpack and travel. Its small footprint is helpful for people with minimalist tastes, but it’s a shame that this focus on durability doesn’t include the BlackWidow V3 Tenkeyless USB cable. On a more positive note, Razer has added a cable routing option to the bottom of the board. Allows you to route the cables out from the top left, top right, or top center of the board to suit your desk layout.
What sets the BlackWidow V3 and the Tenkeyless BlackWidow V3 Pro apart is that it lacks the number pad, dedicated media keys, and volume buttons found on their larger predecessor. This brings the size to 14.3 x 6.1 x 1.6 inches (LxWxH) instead of 17.7 x 9.8 x 1.7 inches. It’s also similar.
Performance Razer BlackWidow V3 Tenkeyless
Razer Green mechanical switches combine clear feedback with immediate response, and the rugged keycap texture provides extra grip. The sturdy construction promises excellent durability to be the first impression on this BlackWidow V3 Tenkeyless keyboard. When playing games with the Razer Black Widow V3 Tenkeyless, it is very responsive, with No lag when pressing buttons. My only nitpick regarding the Razer Black Widow V3 Tenkeyless gaming performance is the lack of a bulge on the “W” key.
Having that will make it easier to find those all-important WASD clusters.
The company talks on its website that more than 150 games, including popular games like Fortnite and Apex Legends, use technology to make the keyboard backlight change based on in-game conditions. Fortnite players can have their keys glow red when they’re in a “hurricane,” for example. It is another excellent feature to have but shouldn’t be a deal-breaker for most people. The Razer BlackWidow V3 Tenkeyless uses a set of Razer Green mechanical switches that combine powerful feedback with fast response.
Razer claims the switches are capable of 80 million keystrokes over a lifetime.
I’m sure the Razer BlackWidow V3 Tenkeyless is capable of withstanding a lot of keystrokes before raising the white flag. Both the switches and critical covers feel incredibly sturdy, and Razer’s solid track record is the hallmark, and many have tested Razer keyboards over the years. They haven’t had any long-term durability issues.

Razer created two versions of the BlackWidow V3 TKL
One with the Razer Green switch that clicks and one with its linear Razer Yellow switch. We analyzed equipped with a Razer Green switch, which features 50g drive force, 1.9mm drive point, 0.4mm difference between drive and reset point for a total travel distance of 4mm. The linear Razer Yellow switches convert it to 45g, 1.2mm, and 0mm for a total range of 3.5mm. Gamers often prefer linear switches, while tactile buttons are popular for typing. This keyboard sounds so loud that I recommend using it in your workspace or game studio, so it doesn’t disturb your family while they are resting.
For most and people
The sound produced by the click-clack sound of each switch is excellent and anticipated, the sound of a key hitting the base and a visible ping. It’s not terrible, but people who are very sensitive to that problem should probably buy some lubricant. Some people’s only gripe is that Razer assigns media keys to the Fn key rather than the nine-key cluster above the arrow keys, Thankfully the V3 Tenkeyless’s ugliness is skin-only. It may not look great, but it’s nicely shaped, and the settings make it easy to use the keyboard for a long time without having to worry about cramping. For a gaming keyboard, the BlackWidow V3 TKL is quite comfortable to type on.
