Reviewers from laptopmag have found the following[***]:
The Razer BlackWidow V3 at $139 is certainly not cheap, but if you don't mind dealing with cable management, the keyboard brings you all of the great features and excellent build quality. While I enjoy the sound of the Razer Green switches over the course of a day, the excessive noise can get to be a bit much. With Connect your keyboard can react to in-game events for some games.

Reviewers from tomshardware have found the following[***]:
The BlackWidow V3 relies on Razer Synapse 3 and the Chroma Studio add-on for its customization. We missed having an identifier on the "W" key, like what you'' find on the Roccat Vulcan TKL Pro. The Black Widow V3 Quartz Edition looks more unique, but you probably shouldn't commit to it.

Pros[**]
  • Comfortable keyboard
  • Solid build quality
  • Comfortable, ergonomic design
Cons[**]
  • No number pad
  • Expensive compared to TKL keyboards
