Razer Cynosa Chroma Review

👤by Matthew Hodgson Comments 📅23-02-18
Conclusion
Theres no doubt that Razer are known for their relatively expensive, yet well designed and manufactured products, with the Razer Cynosa being no different. The keyboard feels very premium with a solid build quality.

The soft touch coating on the keys and gaming-grade key switches are good for gaming and typing alike, offering some feedback as opposed to a typical rubber dome style of key. The soft touch keys help to prevent your fingers slipping off the keys, reducing any excuses you can have for poor gameplay!

The work Razer have done on the RGB backlighting is pure excellence the white backing behind the keycaps illuminates the outside of each key with amazing brightness while the LEDs produce clear, accurate colours. We genuinely love the RGB lighting on this keyboard.

Razer Synapse has received bad press over recent years, being the main reason many users give their products a wide berth, but with the Synapse 3.0 beta, weve seen some huge steps forwards in the last few months, especially in regards to stability and features, despite still being at the beta stage.

Onto the price, which at 65, is relatively cheap for a Razer keyboard, and is in-fact the cheapest keyboard in their current lineup, but with options from other brands, giving much of the same features, and proper, fully fledged, Cherry MX keyswitches, the Cynosa is ultimately difficult to recommend; that is, unless you really want some beautiful RGB lighting and the excellent software.



The RGB lighting is cracking, the keys feel great and build quality is solid, but other brands offer the same for less money.

Pros
+ Gorgeous RGB
+ Solid build quality
+ Keys feel good
+ Soft touch keycaps
+ Razer Synapse 3.0 software has improved remarkably
+ Spill resistant design
+ 1000Hz ultrapolling

Cons
- Arguably still pricey
- Mechanical still feels better
- No N-key rollover
