Razer Cynosa Chroma Review

👤by Matthew Hodgson Comments 📅23-02-18
To get the most from your Razer Cynosa Chroma, you must install the Razer Synapse 3.0 beta, this is Razerís software suite, designed to give you full control of every feature on the keyboard.

The homepage of the software gives you quick access to many of the most commonly used features. The more keen-eyed amongst you mightíve noticed the dark theme that Razer have introduced since we last looked at the Synapse 3.0 beta.

Going into the keyboard customisation, itís possible to effect a change of any key on the board, whether thatís assigning a macro or changing the function completely Ė itís up to you.

The bottom left is where you configure what goes on when the Gaming Mode is activated; by default the Windows Key is disabled, to prevent you pressing it during a game and ending up at the desktop, althought ALT+TAB and ALT+F4 can also be disabled.

The Windows keyboard properties link takes you to settings such as repeat delay, repeat rate and other finicky bits.

Next along is the lighting, often the only reason people install the software in the first place. Luckily, the Razer Synapse 3.0 offers a plethora of features to adapt the lighting to whichever fashion you please. Within the initial page, brightness, and preset settings can be applied, but that isnít all.

Following on from the lighting is the Chroma Studio, allowing you to assign effects across all of your Razer Chroma enabled devices. This studio has come along leaps and bounds since we last played around with it. The customisation possibilities are almost infinite.

The Razer Cynosa Chroma doesnít feature any dedicated Macro keys, but itís possible to assign Macros to any redundant keys, or a specific string of keypresses. The Macro recording facilities within the Synapse 3.0 beta is excellent and well thought out.
