Razer is a joke.

P.S. And just so you know, IP54 is not an exceptional dust/water protection either. It is considered -at least- basic, or even inadequate in some cases. Certainly IP54 is not suppose to protect against water like the one in the photo that Razer shows here.

IP54 basically is splash resistant, not pouring a bucket of water onto your precious keyboard like that

I really like my black Widow keyboard... I think its the original Ultimate..the one with the shiny finish and cherry blues, Built like a tank. I know, I stripped it down, cleaned it, lubricated the cherry blues with silicon grease and put grommets on the keycaps. great servicable product. After all these years of use four of the blue LED lights dont work, But I turn the backlights off anyway, A brilliant product. I like My Razer keyboard.. I dont use the software but the keyboard is of high quality. As I would expect from a company that makes premium peripherals
