Razer Keyboard Comparison: BlackWidow Ultimate vs. BlackWidow Elite
The following table shows the main features of both keyboards. The keyboard is called “black widow” because it was designed to kill its victims with a venomous bite, but the name has been changed to avoid trademark infringement issues. The keyboard is available in several colors and models. The keyboard is very popular among gamers and professionals.
It has a full backlit keyboard which makes typing much easier than without it. The keyboard comes with a number pad, arrow keys, function keys (F1 – F12), multimedia controls (volume up/down, mute, play/pause) and many other functions. There are two different types of switches used: Cherry MX Red and Brown Switch. These switch type have their own advantages and disadvantages when compared to each other.
Cherry MX Red switches are known for being loud and noisy, but they offer excellent tactile feedback. They are preferred by typists due to their superior speed and accuracy. On the other hand, Brown Switches provide better durability and reliability than Cherry MX Red switches.

It seems pretty obvious that you should just save around $80 and go for the BlackWidow Ultimate, right?
Well, maybe not.
The BlackWidow Ultimate does not have a removable USB cord, making it more durable. However, it is not really that big of a difference to justify spending around $80 more. It really depends on your preferences and budget. If you do not really care about the price, the BlackWidow is the way to go since it has a fuller range of features and aesthetic design.
