A while back, I had some issues with my laptop’s keyboard in which it either wasn’t typing certain keys or was doing multiple of the same key with just one small press. It had gotten very difficult to type even simple sentences and was a very frustrating time. So, I decided to invest in a new keyboard. I’d heard that Razer was a good brand and so I went onto Amazon and bought my first Razer Cynosa V2.
It was amazing and I loved that keyboard so much, I loved the range of colors that I could set and truly fell in love with how beautiful I could make the arrangement of colors through the Chroma Studio application. However, that keyboard I received was defective. Often times, it’d just shut off on me and not let my laptop recognize it was even there. I tried it on different PCs and everything. I knew it just was a defective product, which happens.
I contacted customer support and customer support was amazing and always responded to my emails efficiently, I could not have asked for better customer support. I mailed my old keyboard to them and unfortunately, FedEx completely lost my package. Razer’s customer support was doing their best, but the mail system is the mail system.
However, I like Razer. I like their products. I own the kraken sense headphones, the RGB mouse pad, etc. So I was more than happy to invest in just buying a new keyboard. My second one works great with no issues!
I’d happily recommend this keyboard to anyone, my experience isn’t universal and I don’t think this kind of thing happens often. It’s a good keyboard to invest in.

This gaming keyboard is powered by Razer Chroma RGB and can be customized by downloading the Razer Synapse program and using its tools and features. What I especially like is that the keyboard is colorful and vibrant. The pictures just don’t do justice as this keyboard is super colorful. And if you don’t like how bright it is, you can turn up and down the brightness of the RGB by using FN + F11/F12. There are also some other features with the function key like the pause/break key, and more. There are 2 other FN keys that I don’t use which are F9 and F10. You can research how they work because I never found out what they did. Another great perk of the gaming keyboard is media keys. The media keys allow the option to pause/play songs, go to the previous/next song, and change the volume. This is very helpful as doing that stuff manually is tedious. There are even better things about this keyboard. It has a spill resistant design and is built to last long. The keys on the keyboard in general feel nice and conformable to click and they sound pretty good. The keyboard is also quite quiet when you hit each key. That could either be a good or bad thing. You can decide Another great feature that I find useful on this keyboard is the cable routing. It allows your keyboard setup to look so much cleaner than traditional keyboard. While the keyboard is great and all, there are still some things that feel like they need improvement on. One issue I have with this keyboard is that the keys are not as compact as a traditional keyboard. This is most likely to make the RGB more noticeable, but it makes it hard to type quickly when the keys are more far apart than usual. Some people may say that having more spaced keys is good, but for me, I find it annoying that the keyboard isn’t as compact as what the pictures say. Another thing is that you can’t change the lighting effects without having to go to the Razer Synapse program and doing it manually. While most gaming keyboards allow you to change the RGB effects by using a simple function key, this one doesn’t, which I find just annoying. To make things worse, it seems like the reason why this keyboard can’t switch lighting modes is to advertise the use of the Razer Synapse program, which doesn’t feel right. That’s all I really have to say about this keyboard.
I got Cynosa v2 to replace a BlackWidow Chroma v2. I wanted something affordable, similar tactically (key shape, spacing, compression) to the BlackWidow, and something I wouldn’t have to rewrite my muscle memory much to get used to. It checks all boxes just fine, with a bonus of swapping out the media keys from FN+Fx combos to dedicated buttons in the top right corner. Muscle memory had to adapt to that part, but that’s worth the convenience gained imo
