The unconventional mecha-membrane hybrid keyboard gets an update.
The Ornata keyboard has kept its place as a very niche product. Most enthusiasts have transitioned into mechanical keyboards, but some subset of users still prefer the slightly dampened feeling of a membrane keyboard. The Ornata has been a favorite among those set of users, providing keys that provide tactile feedback, but still have some bounce to them. The keycaps are also quite slick, featuring something closer to a mid height setup.
Razer finally released an update which is simply called the Ornata V2
I’ve felt this keyboard myself and found it very pleasant to type on. The shorter keycaps feel great and the tactile click is every bit as good as a real mechanical keyboard; I personally don’t like the “bottom out” feeling of mechanicals and usually place O-rings on my keyboards. So the Ornata strikes a perfect balance between membrane and mechanical.
Those that I’ve spoken to that own this keyboard also rave about it as well. It is also not obnoxiously loud, which sometimes can be a huge selling point.
Razer is also committed to shipping quickly, which is very reassuring as I’m still dealing with other products/companies I’ve ordered during this pandemic that are still stuck in limbo, months later.
