“Razer Huntsman v2 Analog” Keyboard Review

The design of Razer Huntsman v2 Analog rings out the functions of an analog thumbstick through a keyboard. The keyboard proves that various degrees of key pressing bring out different responses in a game. The keyboard maintains the tactical mechanical feel and still uses optical switches for quicker responses, just like the previous set.

Razer keyboards can be a marvel to look at. The Huntsman v2 Analog is very impressive. First, it has a leatherette wrist rest offering RGB touch and glowing PBT caps. The underside also features a light chroma strip that makes it glow. Beyond the separate playback and forward button, this keyboard has dedicated media controls such as the volume dial with a mute option. I t has a USB 3.0 port which uses their braided cable with a split USB-A/USB-C cable.

The Huntsman v2 analog is undoubtedly a razer with a matte aluminum body. The chroma strip gives it an edgy look. With tall, weighty keys and a textured rubber dial for volume that can be rolled up and down, the media controls are a match with the rest of the Huntsman range.

At $250, you will expect quality performance on functionality, which is arguably wonderful. One feature we ought not to overlook is the muted keys while typing. The keys offer a satisfactory action as you don’t hear the click sound while typing. The Razer Huntsman v2 Analog gives the WASD keys a sense of precision when it comes to movement. This means that you can only perform a specific motion function if you hit the specific key.

A disappointment, though, Razer Huntsman v2 Analog doesn’t work with games you would expect it to. For example, in a game like Legion, it is easy to swap the keys to a joystick, but the game will realize you are in controller mode because it is more of a scalpel than a hammer. Using this keyboard is fun if you are more familiar with controllers than keyboards while playing games such as the Apex legends. For this, it is wise to make a sound decision before acquiring one considering the price tag.
