bottom of the gaming food chain


other than all that, it still works. i'd give it 3 stars if i paid half as much for lack of quality. it will get 2, for not breaking thus far. there's really nothing at all special about it but it's just a working keyboard. may as well go buy a basic...

i bought it because i've always been used to laptop-style keys and it's hard to find in a gaming keyboard. as far as i can tell this is the only gaming keyboard with this style of keys.

the keys really grind against the side of their pits, and sometimes it makes them harder to press in. i've owned this for about a month or two and the keys are making squeaking sounds now as they grind, like squealing tires. plastic on plastic. you can...

Overall Good Keyboard


With all things considered this is a great keyboard for the price. it had worked fine for me for over a year until my puppy chewed through the cord. I plan on replacing it with another deathstalker. These bad reviews don't seem to reflect the true...

Pros- +Great Feel +Backlight (The people who claim it isn't obviously couldn't figure out that you hold FN+F12 for more light or FN+F11 for less). +Many features +Love the razer customer support

Cons- -Cable is a bit thick and bulky -Razer Synapse is sometimes confusing (The software it comes with)

Overall Quality


The keyboard is amazing. But when I did find out that the keyboard is very prone to manufacturing issues I was really disappointed. If you have the extra cash or you don't I would just save up for a mechanical keyboard.

Overall the keyboard was insanely aesthetically pleasing. Very smooth, textile matte black finish. After the keys had broken it was very pleasent to type with Very quite and just overall sleek and well thought out design.

The keyboard when I received it the keys where very sticky. (Not broken in) It took over a week of constant clicking on them for them to finally break in and actually act like the keyboard it is supposed to be. Then after about 2 months of typing all...

Razer Chroma keyboard


LEDs all working, nice solid keyboard, clicky but not too loud

cord is a bit stiff & big, flat black color of keyboard gets dirty & you can see fingerprints & spots on it from just natural use

Well-made, looks sleek, comes with good content and information as to how to set it up with your computer and Razer Synapse.

Contrary to what the ad seems to state, there is no backlights on this keyboard, you have to get the expert keyboard to get the green backlights. So, it doesn't seem to be worth it to me. You also don't have as much programmable features as the expert...

So bad


false ads, thanks for wasting my time and money.

This keyboard is nice, and looks sleek

No backlight, yet all the photos show backlight on the bottom of the page... Why the false advertisement... This is horrible. No where does it say essentail in the title of this product. I assumed this would have backlit keys, its the only reason I...
