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.
Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Stealth 2014 Edition Elite Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
  • The keyboard is heavy and has rubber on the bottom which keeps it firm and in place so you don't accidentally move it. It feels very sturdy and is made of hard, slick plastic.
  • The keyboard is heavy and sturdy, never moved while playing. I liked the key click sounds, although my wife sometimes complained about the "noise", so I looked for something a bit quieter this time.
  • Like all mechanical keyboards it is heavy, which means it stays put like it's supposed to.
  • Keyboard is a nice size, I actually set it on my lap when I use it.
  • Its heavy and large.Have a good sized desk ready!

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.
Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Stealth 2014 Edition Elite Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
  • The key action for this keyboard is very quiet, there's no doubt.
  • Simple backlight intensity controls work out of the box. You only get one color.
  • The backlighting options are very nice. You can adjust the brightness of them and have presets to switch to quickly if you need. You switch these presets via the "profiles".
  • It is louder than a traditional keyboard, but it is not deafening like the majority of mechanical keyboards. The keys are crisp and well-lit by the backlight.
  • The 5 extra macro keys are amazing if you're a gamer and the backlight is very cool.

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.
Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Stealth 2014 Edition Elite Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
  • However, you can bind practically ANY key to do something you want it to through the Razer Synapse.
  • The cables for the keyboard are braided and only separate at the end, but still have plenty of length to plug in to different parts of your PC. The cable itself is quite long and doesn't tangle which is nice.
  • It connects via a good length braided cable and ends with 2 gold plated USB 2.0, speaker and mic cables. These provide the USB 2.0 hub and speaker and mic passthrough. I don't personally use them but it's a nice touch.
  • The cable connecting it to the computer is a nice braided design, so it bends very easily, letting me move my keyboard as necessary. This keyboard is top notch in every aspect, and I love it.
  • Doesn't come with a palm rest.
