Razer’s Cynosa Chroma is their latest gaming keyboard to tempt you with pretty lights.
Featuring gaming-grade keys and a spill resistant design, the Cynosa Chroma is a solid, affordable keyboard for any kind of gamer. It’s durable and one of the most customisable keyboards in Razer’s range, thanks to the new Razer Synapse 3 software.
Synapse 3 allows you to turn the gaming mode on or off – which will disable the windows button, Alt-Tab and Alt-F4 at your discretion – and of course, play with the lighting.
You can alter the brightness of the Chroma backlighting and set whether the lights turn off when the monitor display is off. The best part of Synapse 3 is the new lighting configurations – making use of Chroma’s 16.8 million colour combinations has never been so fun. There are new effects to play with; you’ve still got the likes of the long-standing Wave and Breathing effects, but a new favourite is Fire, which throws off a captivating perception of licking flames.
The membrane keys are in a great sweet spot of resistance, and the Fn keys across the top light up when you’re holding down the button. The hardware could do with a wrist rest, but aside from that it’s a bona fide safe bet, entry level keyboard.
