Product Overview

Razer BlackWidow V3 Tenkeyless is a more compact alternative to the BlackWidow V3. It retains many features in the full-size mechanical gaming keyboard but is more minimalist and portable.
Most notably, it shares the latest Razer Mechanical Switches with the V3 and the V3 Pro: Razer Green switch offers a precise, audible, and clicky actuation, while the Yellow switch is smooth, silent, and linear. The latter now features silicone sound dampeners for an even quieter experience. With extra sidewalls for better switch stability, the Razer Mechanical Switches are extremely durable and reliable for up to 80 million keystrokes.
Through Razer Synapse 3, the BlackWidow V3 Tenkeyless is fully programmable, allowing users to remap buttons, record and store macros and set custom lighting with Razer Chroma RGB.

Reviewers from tomshardware have found:
The Razer BlackWidow V3 Tenkeyless is a good choice for gamers. It offers a good selection of mechanical switches, as well as a responsive feel for fast input. It also supports HyperShift, which gives each key a secondary function. The keyboard doesn't feature onboard storage; changes are only saved in Razer Synapse.
