Its structure is 293x103x37mm and there is a weight of 446 grams. Meanwhile, the USB type C to USB type A cables are detachable and it plugs precisely into the keyboard thanks to two small plastic sliders, a detail that offers stability. Light, compact, stable and sober.

An important detail to consider when choosing this product is that at the moment it has a US ANSI layouttherefore no Ñ key. This can be a negative point for some and insignificant for others. The truth of that the keyboard can be used silently with the correct settings. The really important thing is in another series of questions: Will you use it just to play?

Razer Huntsman Mini Analog Keyboard

The answers are indecisive. This is our opinion after using it for two weeks. At the time of play it was a great keyboardwhich is very comfortable to touch, that is massive response and its size gives us plenty of space to move with the mouse. however, Using it for other items can be uncomfortable because many keys must be used in a shortcut: arrows, delete, etc. Even “enter” can complicate more than one using its extended format instead of the inverted L. But of course: This is a gaming keyboard.

Razer Huntsman Mini Analog: the analog optical switches

Two elements characterize this 60 percent: analog keysallowing simulation of the operation of a joystick, and the possibility of set two functions to the same key. In addition, the operation of each can be adapted to the taste and needs of each moment: more response when playing and less response when writing. to my liking, the keys have the right noise: not too loud and not too quiet.

sensation of analog keys. They work well for that car racing video game, where we can turn as needed as we dip our fingers. They also stand out in titles such as Fortnitewhere we will have the opportunity to walk or run depending on the force we give to keycaps. however, in shooters you won’t feel much difference, At least if you don’t dedicate yourself professionally.

Conversely, the optical propertieswhich allows you to activate using more speed, yes it is a norm. In this way, Razer allows you to organize the main trip: 1.5 millimeters as minimum and 3.6 millimeters as maximum. At the same time, the Huntsman Mini Analog can register two functions on the same key depending on how much we press it. Is it useful? Much depends on the accuracy and pulse of each user. In my case, it was very difficult for me to measure exactly how far to press to release each action.

Razer Synapse: the software to squeeze the Huntsman Mini Analog

Like other peripherals from the company, the Huntsman Mini Analog the program is needed Synapse to make the most of your possibilities. As it comes from the factory, it can be plugged in and used without a problem (it even includes shortcuts configured to change RGB), but for a full experience it needs to be installed.

Synapse allows us to create up to five usage profiles for different needs. We can assign double function in some keyschange the route of each to have a larger or smaller response, convert them to analog and even block some that cause some sort of delay in the game, such as Windows.

With this program, which may actually be more attractive to the eye in future updates, you will be able to adjust the brightness levels, play different lighting effects and also turn it off, something we do not recommend. In other words, a fairly complete program for a very complete keyboard.

Conclusions on the Razer Huntsman Mini Analog Keyboard

We have been accustomed to the company in recent years to launch keyboards of very good quality and improve versions at the request of users. Due to the success of optical and analog switches make the wise decision to include them in a 60 percent very well built, with the right mix of RGB and gentleness, and great keycaps. All of that a gaming keyboard can offer until now is within this little product.

So far It has no release date in Argentina, but Razer assured us it would be coming soon. When we have your price ipopost natin. On the other hand, we’re also not sure if it will come along ISO distribution. That response is also pending.
