Razer Announces Two New Budget Chroma Keyboards

Hardware manufacturer Razer has announced two brand new budget keyboards that support the company’s propriety Chroma RGB light-up technology at a lower price point than their premium Razer Blackwidow Chroma or Razer Ornata Chroma lines. 

First up is the Razer Cynosa Chroma keyboard which offers access to the individual key light-up technology, spill-resistant design, and Razer Synapsis compatibility that its pricier siblings offer. The Cynosa’s more feature rich sibling is the Razer Cynosa Chroma Pro keyboard which offers the same features in addition to the “underglow” technology which allows the user to customize a RGB glow that surrounds the keyboard with a programmable color that can match your individual keys. “Underglow” does not only make the border of your keyboard a single color, but Razer’s software allows you to customize the color, density and breathability of 24 different “zones”. 

The Razer Cynosa Chroma keyboard has an MSRP of $59.99 USD and the more feature rich Razer Cynosa Chroma Pro has an MSRP of $79.99 USD. It should be noted that Razer has been very clear in their marketing materials that the Cynosa line is budget friendly, don’t expect a full mechanical chroma keyboard experience on the level of the Blackwidow in a sub $99.99 USD price point.
