Razer Huntsman Mini Analog Keyboard

A year after bringing analog optical switches to its main line of keyboards, Razer is back again with the Razer Huntsman Mini Analog keyboard. The new Mini Analog keyboard brings the analog optical technology to the company’s 60% portfolio for the first time.

The addition of the analog switches allows finer control and refinement for users. For the uninitiated, analog optical switches use the same LED-type lighting you’d see on an optical mouse, except with a keyboard. The goal behind it is to allow controller-like sensitivity and control for keyboard users.

 

More precision and stability

Like its full-size relative, the Razer Huntsman Mini Analog keyboard allows for dual-point actuation on a per-key level. This allows users to set a bind when a key is initially pressed as well as when it’s pressed further. You receive more control where precision can be important, like in stealth or racing games. For example, think of using W to move forward in a first-person shooter. With dual-point actuation, you can set your ability to walk and run on the same key. That means the harder you press the key, the faster your player will move in game.

Razer Analog Optical Switch Actuation With Bar

The keyboard features Doubleshot PBT keycaps, which should increase the overall durability of the board through long play sessions. It also comes with a detachable USB-C to USB-A cable for quick connections, but doesn’t feature any sort of wireless connectivity. If you are looking for that from Razer, there’s the Blackwidow V3 Mini Hyperspeed.

The Razer Huntsman Mini Analog keyboard is available now from Razer and other select retailers, and costs $149.99 USD.
