Reviewers from laptopmag have found the following[***]:
The Razer BlackWidow V3 Pro is an excellent option for those looking to step up their game. The linear Razer Yellow switches are quick to respond while giving you the ability to hover and depress slightly for a hair-trigger when necessary. Razer boasts up to 192 hours if you forgo the lighting completely, but that drops considerably when the lights come on.

The BlackWidow V3 Pro connects to your PC via either Bluetooth or a 2.4 GHz wireless connection using a USB dongle. The keyboard supports Razer's configuration software, Synapse. It's well-made and great to type on, but I'm not entirely sure it sells the dream of the wireless mechanical keyboard.

Reviewers from pcworld have found the following[***]:
The BlackWidow V3 Pro is Razer's first gaming keyboard with a wireless connection. It's a bombastic full-sized keyboard with RGB lighting, dedicated media controls, and a comfy wrist rest in the box. The only thing that might give you pause is its $230 price tag.

The Razer BlackWidow V3 Pro is an acceptable keyboard for use with your smartphone or tablet. It has full RGB backlighting and macro-programmable keys, which are customizable in the Razer Synapse 3 companion software. The ergonomics are decent thanks to the detachable wrist rest and two incline settings.

The Razer V3 Pro is an impressively full-size mechanical keyboard. It's not sacrificing Razer's RGB talents to go fully wireless. The glowing keycaps excel at both typing and gaming. You can crank up and down the brightness as you see fit if you want to save on battery.

Reviewers from tomshardware have found the following[***]:
The Razer BlackWidow V3 Pro delivers on Razer's reputation of high-end gaming. Despite its wireless connection, it proved as reliable as a wired keyboard, so long as battery life wasn't on its last legs. The keyboard is relatively feature-rich, but it depends more on the Synapse 3 software than I'd like.

Pros[**]
  • Sleek design
  • Comfortable wrist rest
  • Easy to use
Cons[**]
  • No G keys

Sentiment Score[*] 65%
Reviewers from trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
The BlackWidow V3 Pro is Razer’s first attempt at a wireless keyboard. It connects to your PC via the provided 2.4 GHz receiver, Bluetooth, or a good old-fashioned wire in the form of the USB-C port for charging on the back-left hand side. There are plenty of other gaming features on tap – such as full NKRO and anti-ghosting, as well as programmable keys. However, battery life is a bit of an issue.

Pros[**]
  • Great build quality
  • Easy to use
  • Great software integration
Cons[**]
  • No dedicated macro keys
  • Battery life could be better
