There are two versions of the Razer BlackWidow V3 Pro available and both go for $229. The Razer Green is louder and better suited to general-purpose use with a mix of typing and gaming. The linear Razer Yellow switches may be the more gaming-centric option from Razer. Razer boasts up to 192 hours if you completely forgo the RGB lighting.
