Razer Huntsman Mini
Razer announced today the Huntsman Mini 60% optical gaming keyboard.
The latest addition to the Huntsman family, the new super-compact keyboard has all the best aspects of its predecessors in Razer’s most space-efficient design yet. The Huntsman Mini will be available in Black or Mercury (White) and feature onboard storage of up to 5 keybinding profiles also onboard lighting presets for use out of the box.
Known for their top of line optical switches, the Huntsman series excels in speed and response time. The Huntsman Mini is no exception and features both the clicky purple and new, improved linear red optical switches.
Razer’s product team continues its community-validation design approach by listening to product feedback from gaming and tech communities. The team worked through multiple designs and community feedback before the Huntsman Mini was finished. “We have many years of experience in creating and innovating keyboards and switches designed for gamers. That is complemented through the support and feedback from our community,” says Alvin Cheung, Senior Vice President of Razer’s Peripherals Business Unit.
The new linear switches on the Huntsman Tournament Edition are an improved design of previous Razer Linear Optical Switch. These new switches feature silicon dampeners that decrease sound without sacrificing any of that satisfying clicky feeling. Doubleshot PBT keycaps with secondary functions printed onto the side of the keycaps make their way onto the Huntsman Mini. They were introduced last year on the Huntsman Tournament Edition.d They are more durable than regular ABS keycaps and resist developing “shine” from extended use.
For keyboard customization fans, the Huntsman Mini has a standard bottom row that is compatible with most standard keycap sets. A USB-C connection port allows users to interchange cables however they like. Razer has also promised to produce quality PBT Keycaps in regional layouts later in the year, including Japanese, Nordic, German, French, and Spanish.
With a sturdy aluminum frame and some of the fastest switches on the market, the Huntsman Mini is built with competitive gaming in mind. Gamers can also use all of Razer Synapse 3’s RGB lighting features to fully customize their keyboard and use game-specific lighting effects on over 150 games. Without Synapse, the keyboard still supports preset onboard lighting profiles.
