Reviewers from Laptopmag have found the following[***]:
The Razer BlackWidow V3 is an excellent entry point into a full-size keyboard. It doesn't scream gaming keyboard, but that's assuming you don't have the RGB light show on full display. If you are coming from laptop keyboards or membrane keyboards, the Razer Greens are going to be a shock to the system.

  • Excellent build quality for a full-size keyboard

Reviewers from Rtings have found the following[***]:
The Razer BlackWidow V3 is an exceptional gaming keyboard. It feels very well-built and it's comfortable to type on, but the linear feel and low pre-travel distance of its switches may cause unintentional keystrokes. Like many Razer keyboards, this is an outstanding choice for gamers due to the light Razer switches, customizable features, and RGB backlighting.

  • Easy-to-use RGB backlighting
  • Comfortable wrist rest
  • Loud spacebar when pressed
  • Spacebar is noisy

Reviewers from Tomshardware have found the following[***]:
The Razer BlackWidow V3 comes in black but is also available in pink, dubbed Quartz Edition. This color will prove even more divisive, but there's no denying that it makes Razer's Quartz collection distinctive. Underneath that pink color scheme lies a full keyboard that seems massive, especially with the optional wrist rest attached.

  • Beautiful pink color scheme
  • Phenomenal RGB backlighting
  • Razer Green and Yellow mechanical switches
  • Razer's Quartz Edition is more expensive than the TKL version
