Razer gaming keyboards aren't cheap - they're made to last, and they're not made to tend to the non-gamer crowd. With the new Razer BlackWidow X line of keyboards, the company is cutting down on price - not on production value, mind you, on price. The keyboards will be the same high-quality hardware you're used to with Razer, only now they'll be stripped of (almost) all of their bells and whistles.
