They're rated at 80 million keystrokes too, on top of 10-key rollover and anti-ghosting. Their actuation point if of 50 grams per click. The keyboard is programmable with support for on-the-fly macro recording and Razer fits the BlackWidow Ultimate with 1000Hz ultrapolling. Does Razer's new BlackWidow appeal to you?
