Keyboard Review: Razer Ornata V2

The Razer Ornata V2 is a great game keyboard. It has unique Razer switches that mix the softness of rubber domes and the clickiness of mechanical switches. Unfortunately, its trigger point is a little deeper than some standard mechanical switches. The board has nice RGB lighting and comes with a decently comfortable wrist break, but it feels a bit cheap.
The Razer Ornata V2 is the successor to the Razer Ornata Chroma. It is still quite similar and uses the same clicky Razer mecha-membrane switches as before. They offer a good overall typing experience, even if they simply feel like rubber dome switches with clicky feedback. The badge also feels a bit cheap, but comes with a decent magnetic break on your wrist. On the plus side, it comes with beautiful full RGB lighting that can be easily customized in the software.Razer Ornata V2 KeyboardThe construction quality of Razer Ornata V2 keyboard is decent, and there is not much improvement compared to the previous Razer Ornata Chroma. The frame is still plastic and has a lot of flex, and the ABS keys are decent at best. The only nice part is the detachable palm rest, although even this does not feel too premium.
The Razer Ornata V2 is a very good overall keyboard that can be used for different purposes. It is equipped with hybrid switches that exo will exod the feeling of a rubber dome switch, but with feedback from clicky mechanical switches. It can be a bit noisy for the people around you, but if you’re not around anyone, it should be fine. It’s not designed for mobile devices, but it can be a good choice for programmers or players who don’t like the feeling of real mechanical switches.
The Razer Ornata V2 is a decent keyboard for the office. It has two tilt settings and comes with a palm rest, which can be useful for ergonomics. It offers good overall writing quality, although it can be a bit noisy due to its clicky switches, which may not be ideal if you are close to colleagues.Razer Ornata V2 KeyboardThe Razer Ornata V2 has an incredible RGB backlight. You can easily customize it with key software and set several effects as well. You can also check the brightness directly on the board, which is nice.Photo:Razer
The Razer Ornata V2 is a good keyboard for programming. It offers good writing quality with its hybrid switches, and its ergonomics are good thanks to two tilt adjustments and an included palm rest. You can also program macros on all keys, but unfortunately it does not allow pairing of multiple devices. It’s also just decently built and feels a bit plasticky. Razer Ornata V2 price:€109.99
