    Thanks for the quick reply! I looked a few youtube comparisons, and it seems like the orange is quieter than the yellow,
    Example :
    Yellow, although it is quieter than the original blackwidow ultimate that I have now, seems to be louder than the orange
     
  2. I recieved my BlackWidow Chroma V2 Nordic with orange switches earlier today.

    I have 3 problems with this keyboard,

    * The first problem I have is that whenever I change to a custom lightning layout and restart my PC, Synapse forgets about it and just goes by the previous default option.
    (I do hope they will fix this issue with a future update, asap)

    * The second problem is that the light sometimes flicker in another color, like say I make the keyboard all red, and sometimes I can see in the corner of my eye for like 0,5 seconds that some keys changes color, to white and then back to red. Not sure why, but it's like the light flickers real fast.

    * But nothing beats the annoying sound of the spring going back when the spacebar, backspace or enter key are pressed. (also a few other keys like N, M, B). Also known as "ping sound".

    *Edit, it seems like it's resonance sound from the metal backplate in the keyboard. Like if I tilt my keyboard and tap it with my knuckles I hear a kinda lound echo sound from the backplate. That's the sound it makes when I type. A metal echo sound.

    This could be maybe related to the magnetic wrist rest introduction?
    About the first error instead submit the feedback through the Razer Synapse option, you find it under the little gear icon.
    About the second one if you are sure about it contact support, maybe it's hardware failure.

    Not sure about this but if not quieter they should be at least the same as orange ones.
    The plus in yellow ones beside faster activation should be the absence of the tactile feedback so overall should feel smooth and more silent.

    Thanks for the advice and help, will try and find somewhere nearby that stocks them, so I can have a test, can't really justify spending the money if my gf still hates the noise xD

    I'm really liking mine with yellow switches. It's great that the price didn't increase from V1 to V2 even though now it has the wrist rest and the keychain is an awesome little bonus. The wrist rest is really soft and the keyboard is heavy which I like. The matte black, font, and bright lights look great too. Plus got a free Firefly Cloth with it. 10/10 would buy this beast again.

    Why can't they just utilise a USB-C cable? That way they can integrate the USB-audio pass-through with a single thinner wire, which will then allow them to offer cable routing like the blackwidow X.

    I suppose because it's not a standard yet, the majority of desktops/gaming pc doesn't have a c type usb but a 3.0.
    And I'm not 100% sure one single c type usb can power both the usb and the keyboard (power+audio ok, but power+power+ audio?).
    Maybe someone else can be more specific on that.

    They usually answer in 1-2 days but lately takes more. Just be patient.

    Does V2 have a full N-Key Rollover? If it does, does it only work via a PS/2 adapter?

    Why is there no BF1 game profile for these? Does anyone have one? More game profiles should be added, lots of high profile games without one.

    That make some sense, yeah. But im seeing other companies doing it so im sure there are ways they can do it. Ive seen reviews and many others mentioning this as well. Its a must have thing for some, hope Razer will look into it. =D

    What are the actuation times for the 3 color switches?
     
  20. The custom profiles that I make is forgotten by my Blackwidow V2 if i eighter restart Synapse or restart my computer. Any ideas? Have uninstalled Synapse a few times, and deleted all traces from it. Nothing seems to work. I basically can't use the custom mode..

    Also, sometimes a few keys on the numpad lights up in a different color than my other ones, like for 1 second, it can be any color or just no color. Im not sure if its a hardware or software issue but it's really wierd and I fear that the lights might die soon.

    Anyone else with a V2 that doesn't remember the custom profiles you make? Or have wierd lighting problems on the numpad?

    I actually mailed the support about this over a week ago but haven't gotten any answer yet.
