What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Razer Ornata Chroma Mecha-Membrane Gaming Keyboard
  • The mid-sized keys are great for my typing style and the chomalights are just fantastic.
  • I also love how these are medium keys rather than full-size. I can slide my fingers through the keys much faster and smoother with the medium-size keys.
  • This product is a full-size computer keyboard with colored under-lighting.
  • The keyboard is made out of a very quality plastic, and it's got a bit of weight to it so I don't see this thing breaking any time soon.
  • We had a larger Microsoft keyboard before this one, and this one is much smaller and compact.
Corsair K55 Gaming Keyboard
  • The keyboard is just the right size, much better than my previous keyboard which was quite large and had an overemphasized ergonomic shape. The colors are great fun for the grandkids.
  • Nice stroke and weight with excellent response.
  • The keyboard is a nice compact size even with the additional num pad.
  • Great keyboard, full size so be aware! It's my first gaming keyboard and I am super satisfied with it.
  • Light weight but enough heft to not move around.

What customers say about "Keys"
Razer Ornata Chroma Mecha-Membrane Gaming Keyboard
  • Great quality and feel, and the backlighting is very nice. Great for gamers and those who like a nice tactile response when typing!
  • You're limited by only your imagination when it comes to backlight design.
  • The keys very crisp and tactile, nice clicking noise, very fast responsive.
  • The backlight is nice but it could be brighter so that the effects really pop in a bright room. As it stands, the most bright colors (green for example) really pop in a fully lit room while the more subdued colors are less visible.
  • The Fire and Starlight modes are particularly awesome in a dark room, and lose some of their luster in a very bright room.
Corsair K55 Gaming Keyboard
  • Feel of keys and backlighting are huge plus to me. At 49+, eyes are not as sharp as once were.
  • The custom backlight feature is awesome. The colors look great. The wrist support is comfortable. Keys aren't loud and respond nicely.
  • I love how you can change the backlight colors. Also, the program keys work well in the games I play.
  • Nice RGB lighting, quiet typing noise, multimedia¯o keys and palm rest are things I like about this keyboard.
  • The multimedia keys are very useful.
  • The backlighting is nice, but has limited programmability.
  • The keys are very difficult to see in the dark. This is because the keys themselves have no backlighting, it's just white letters on black keys. When using the backlighting (you know, like in the dark...) the keys become almost impossible to read.

What customers say about "Features"
Razer Ornata Chroma Mecha-Membrane Gaming Keyboard
  • The keys feel great, with just the right amount of tactile feedback, and the layout of the keys is great for my Windows PC programming and book-writing tasks. I'm sure it works well for gamers too.
  • The USB cable is super nice and has a fabric outer covering.
  • Cables feel very strong.
  • It's lightweight and has a reinforced USB cable which is nice.
  • Free magnetic form-factor palm rest that easily clips to the keyboard.
  • Palm rest is faux leather, which is not very comfortable if you sweat a lot on your hands (this is a minor peripheral issue.
Corsair K55 Gaming Keyboard
  • There is a lock to disable your windows key which helps from accidentally minimizing your full screen gaming.
  • It has a Windows lock key, so if you accidentally press that windows key by the space bar, it will not knock you out of your game if you have that key enabled.
  • The media keys, macro keys, Windows lock button, and the typing experience are all pleasing.
  • With options such as the attachable palm-rest, and the Windows (super) key lock, this keyboard is quite nice.
  • I do love the media controls and palm rest.
  • Its good for price but ive had issue with the plug/ connection to computer.
