-Gorgeous lighting (backlit with strong colors and completely adjustable with total customization)
-Soft clicks, very quiet for a keyboard
-Zero issues with any of the keys or ghosting, which I what I would expect from a gaming keyboard
-Sturdy feeling, yet not too heavy
-Adjustable feet to suit the height of your hand. Very comfortable even for long periods of use.
Cons (all minor)
-For a while, the backspace and space bar squeaked when pressed occasionally. It was not very noticeable, didn't interfere with any of the functions, and disappeared after a few weeks. Only reason I am including it is because it did irk the perfectionist in me.
-Occasionally the driver doesn't boot up right, so the keyboard lights either turn off or revert to standard lighting. Easily fixed by opening the Synapse driver program.
-The customization driver could be more user-friendly. Once you get the hang of it, it's fun to mess around with!
Overall a fantastic keyboard for the budget. I wanted something that would work with my gaming, but also not be obnoxiously loud as I do a lot of typing. The Cynosa Chroma checks all of my requirements, and looks epic!
UPDATE 2/2019: I've now had this keyboard for a year and would not trade it for anything else. It still runs like a dream with absolutely zero issues. The lighting remains strong and no keys have needed replacing/repairing. I would give it 6 stars if possible!

Will not control this device, so you will have to install Synapse 3.0, and run both at the same time.
After less then a month of use, i had to return my KB for another one. Nothing major, but 2 keys started to get a real high pitched squeaking noise to the backspace and left shift. I had no issue whats so ever getting a new one.
This is the perfect keyboard! I was using a Cynosa non Chroma before and upgrading to the Chroma is the best decision i ever had!
Will continue to buy Razer products!

The lighting mode are fun to play with.
Good feel. Very comfortable for work and for play.
Didn't have any issues with any bars squeaking or anything. All is still in perfect condition.
I've had it for a about 8 month and would buy the same again.
Apparently it is VERY noisy according to my roommate, but any KB during a gaming session at 2 am would be noisy i think...
The membrane keyboard is a bit stiff, and reasonably quiet (it's not silent, by any means, but neither is it "clicky"). There is a bit of flex in the deck, but the overall build quality seems decent.
The slip-pads are large (it looks like >one square inch for each of four).
The tilt legs have two height levels to chose from, which is a nice perk at this level.
They key size and spacing is nice, and there is just the right amount of RGB lighting peeking through (note that there are many, many levels of brightness so you should be able to find a happy lighting level with ease). I'll note that while only Windows is officially supported, I have used the open source software that runs on Linux for the Chroma devices; There are (unsurprisingly) fewer features, but it does provide some control over the keyboard lighting. (For example, I was able to put the keyboard into various modes, such as "wave" and "breathe", and was even then able to move the keyboard between devices while maintaining it's lighting settings. (By default, the keyboard does a spectrum-shifting mode with the entire keyboard shifting colors at once and slowly over time cycling through the rainbow).
One huge reason I've dropped a couple stars from the score for this review: whether in Windows or Linux, you have no control over the speed of the various effects; this seems like a huge oversight.
Overall, they keyboard is fairly easy to use: hold the function key to access the special keyboard controls that increase/decrease the lighting level, to record a macro, or to toggle "gaming mode" (disables the Windows key). Sadly, the keyboard doesn't support on-board profiles or on-the-go profile switching. Aside from turning the lighting on or off, you will only be able to control the lighting through the Razer Synapse or Open Razer Project software.
My final analysis: if you want a mostly no-frills RGB keyboard, the Razer Cynosa Chroma should remain on your short-list of contenders, especially if you can get it for $60 or less. The build quality seems decent, and while the keyboard lacks some nice premium features such as a volume wheel, a USB pass-through, mechanical switches, or a braided cable you're hopefully not going to pay what you might reserve for a premium keyboard, either.
If, on the other hand, you were expecting a robust and user-friendly lighting management option, I would discourage the Razer Chroma products, and the Cynosa in particular.
Disappointed that Razer gave this keyboard its seal of approval, I expected more from Razer.
