I was in need of a better keyboard. My wrists ached, I desired a backlight so I could work without turning the light on if need be, and I really just wanted to invest in something that could offer me more than the standard keyboard. Let me just say, this was hands down one of the best investments I have made so far in my writing career. It has changed the game. I don’t have the aches, and writing is even more enjoyable than before. A year into using this, I wanted to give an honest review of one of my favorite tools I use on a daily basis.
Read below to check out my keyboard review, and get one for yourself if it sounds like a good fit.
Tim Grahl says, “We must be self-encouragers” most days. After I read, You Are a Writer, by Jeff Goins, I went to a new level with investing in tools that would help me grow as a writer. This keyboard was an encourager to me. It’s tactile clicky keys sound like a typewriter, and it shifts in color, causing me to not only have a better writing experience but a flexible one where I can write in the dark. Honestly, it makes work plain fun. I won’t ever go back.
The Razor Ornata Chroma is brilliant. It offers:
- Backlit keys/fading from one color to the next/adjustable settings
- Tactile & clicky membrane keys (sounds like a typewriter for those motivated by touch and sound)
- Amazing gel-like wrist pad (now I won’t write without one!)
- Ergonomic Design

Why A Gaming Keyboard is a Smart Choice for Writers
A gaming keyboard, like any gaming device — is made to withstand intensity. If you write a lot or plan to, this is a smart investment to make. The Razor Ornata Chroma was created for hard play. This is where membrane meets mechanical, as they say. You will find speed and accuracy superb. I truly believe you won’t be disappointed unless you just really don’t like colorful things. If this keyboard isn’t for you, because it is too flashy, don’t forget you can change the settings. You can also search for other like-keyboards that offer the same cushy feel while dialing back the other stuff — just search Amazon!
