Razer Key Light Chroma Review

Rating: 6.0.

In today's review, we are taking a look at the Key Light Chroma, Razer's RGB-equipped LED panel. On paper it looks great, but at £300 it's going to have to do a lot of things right in order to justify the price premium over competitor products, including the Elgato Key Light. Will the Razer Key Light Chroma deliver, or will it disappoint? Let's find out.

Pros:

  • Bright 2800 lumen panel.
  • Good build quality.
  • All accessories you need in the box.

Cons:

  • Phone app and Synapse are buggy.
  • Frequent disconnects.
  • RGB isn’t that vivid, more like a tint.
  • Hugely expensive.
  • Ball head is clunky and easily damaged.

KitGuru says: In general, this overly expensive light doesn't deliver – and there are many more lighting options out there for streamers that won't set them back £300. The phone app and Synapse have been a buggy experience. Razer will have to do a lot more for us to recommend a £300 light given the lack of features and poor user experience.
