6. Razer Ornata Chroma: Mecha-Membrane
If you like colors then the Razer Ornata Chroma is for you. Each key can be adjusted to your desire with an insane amount of color choices. However, the software that comes with it is said to be difficult to use. The Razer software is fine for color tuning, but anything else might give you a little bit of trouble.
The keys feel great, the wrist rest is magnetic and can be removed as well which is great. The only downside is that the keys might need to be lubed every now and then to avoid sticking but that is a rare and minor inconvenience.
