Razer launches a discreet mechanical keyboard for work and play
HAMBURG, Germany – Razer™, the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers, today unveiled the Razer BlackWidow Lite, a mechanical keyboard designed for work and play.
The BlackWidow Lite keyboard boasts the powerful performance of a Razer mechanical gaming keyboard with a sleek, minimalistic profile that’s fit for the professional environment. Equipped with Razer™ Orange Mechanical Switches that provide near-silent, tactile feedback, the Razer BlackWidow Lite ensures the best typing experience possible while being discreet. Each switch is also tested for durability of up to 80 million keystrokes, providing durability far beyond standard keyboards. The Razer BlackWidow Lite also ships with separate o-rings for extra sound dampening and fatigue control.
The BlackWidow Lite joins the Razer Atheris and the Razer Goliathus Mobile Stealth in Razer’s performance-productivity peripherals roundup, complementing the company’s other feature-loaded workhorses, including the Razer Blade Stealth laptop, Razer Phone 2 and Razer HammerHead USB-C ANC earbuds.
“We play hard, but we work just as hard,” said Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “One third of our daily lives are spent in front of desks, so we want you to experience a keyboard that makes typing feel great. The BlackWidow Lite keyboard was engineered to be the perfect companion for work and for play.”
The Razer BlackWidow Lite has a compact, tenkeyless layout and includes a detachable braided cable for easy storage and portability. Individually white-backlit keys on the keyboard enable productivity in low light, with fully adjustable brightness controls. Get access to advanced options and granular control with Razer Synapse 3, a cloud-based hardware configuration tool that lets you assign macros, set shortcuts, and more.
