Got $250 burning a hole in your pocket waiting for a new high-end mechanical keyboard?
The new Razer Huntsman V2 Analog might just do the trick.
This new mechanical keyboard from Razer looks like previous models but actually uses new optical switches with adjustable actuation.
That means you can use the Razer Synapse software to customize how the keyboard responds to your taps, adjusting the resistance the buttons have.
Unlike regular on/off actuation, you can even program them with analog inputs to mimic the feel of controller joysticks for better control.
Fiddle with the Razer Huntsman V2 Analog keys and you can press a forward arrow so that, if you press it lightly, you can move slower in game, and if you press it fully, you break into a full sprint.
The default travel for this keyboard’s switches is 3.6 mm but you can adjust it down to 1.5mm, so that leaves plenty of room for configuration.
You can see in this gif how the new switches work.
The rest of the specs you can see on the website. We’ll just gonna highlight something that’s pretty damn amazing, since it’s a mechanical keyboard problem that gave us plenty of headaches until now!
“Doubleshot PBT keycaps: Harder and more durable than ABS plastic, the sturdy, textured keycaps on this analog optical gaming keyboard won’t wear down to a shiny finish and have labels which will never fade thanks to their doubleshot molding process.”
The Razer Huntsman V2 Analog can be bought right now for $250 on the Razer store but, if you want to try it out first in store, you’ll have to wait a few more days. The keyboard will be available at various retailers starting with February 9.
