Razer Ornata Chroma Review


Razer debuts its Mecha-Membrane switches - how do they hold up?

To us, the Ornata Chroma is a slightly odd proposition. The reason we'd consider hybrid switches like these would be to save cash over mechanical keyboards, but at £100 this doesn't apply given there's a decent selection of mechanical models for...

Razer Ornata Chroma Review


One could be forgiven for thinking that this is just another colourful keyboard from Razer. It is in fact among the first to feature a new mecha-membrane hybrid switch claims to be unlike anything else.

Razer Ornata Chroma


With a unique new switch design and a compellingly low price, the Razer Ornata Chroma is both an outstanding gaming keyboard and a terrific value.

Attractively priced. Fine typing experience for any application.

Limited features. Some adjustment may be required.

Rare indeed is the budget tech product of any kind that gives you everything you want, exactly the way you want it. But the Razer Ornata Chroma gets tantalizingly close, both as a gaming device and as a keyboard, with its cut corners bearing very few...

Razer Ornata Chroma Review


At around the one hundred-pounds mark, any keyboard worth its keys is likely to be equipped with mechanical switches. Razer isn't ignorant of this fact, and the Ornata Chroma addresses the issue with an unusual take on key actuation. Whether this works...

The Ornata Chroma achieves all it sets out to in terms of functionality and style. A seemingly understated keyboard is brightly illuminated by Chroma colours, and the board’s Mecha Membrane keys are swift, responsive and as tactile as you could...

Razer's Latest Keyboard Blends Membrane and Mechanical


Gamers who want an inexpensive hybrid mechanical keyboard with full RGB lighting may find the Razer Ornata to be a strong choice. If you don't need fancy colors, though, Logitech and Razer sell fully mechanical keyboards for the same price.

Good in-game performance ; Convenient wrist rest ; Pretty RGB lighting

Hybrid keys add nothing ; Similarly priced keyboards are better

The comfortable Razer Ornata can type and play with ease, but its hybrid membrane/mechanical keys aren't for everyone.

Stunning keyboard, perfect keys


I've only had this keyboard a couple of days but as a heavy ps user I am so glad I invested in a decent keyboard! My typing speed and accuracy has improved due to the key spacing and more pronounced feedback and the colour effects have kept a constant...
