    An expensive keyboard, but its worth it!

    Yes it is a bit expensive....but it's soooo worth it! Nicest keyboard I have ever had. The keystrokes feel smooth and precise, and the case is dampened well so it sounds nice. The ergonimics are perfect, I really like the fully covered padded hand rest more than the last generation. (The Huntsman Elite from a few years ago had an aluminim boarder around the padded hand rest that I didn't like, it was tall and uncomfortable). I love the new USB 3.0 socket on the side, I don't know why all their keyboards wouldn't have that. This is a great all-around keyboard. I have it paired with a Razer Basilisk Ultimate mouse, and a Razer Firefly V2 mousepad, and I honestly can't imagine a better setup. The lighting is very cool looking, and I like how it can sequence the lighting effects across everything using their Synapse Chroma Studio app.

    nice keyboard

    |
    Posted .

    Love this keyboard. Quality feels solid, and worth the money. However, I was a bit disappointed that the top part of the case is plastic, and not metal like the Blackwidow or huntsman elites, especially for the price, but still doesn't feel cheap. The keys feel really nice to type on, not as clicky as what i'm used to (i believe my blackwidow elite had clicky purple switches), don't get me wrong, the keyboard is still loud, as mechanical keyboards should be, its just a different type of sound, its a more dull plastic hitting plastic sound. The keys were a bit too sensitive for my liking at first, i was spamming keys when barely touching them, thankfully this keyboard allows you to adjust the actuation via the software, so was able to make the keys less sensitive. this feature alone justifies the price in my opinion. I was a bit worried about the volume control on the keyboard. My Blackwidow elite had the same exact set up and controls, and it was really glitchy, googling it found tons of people having the same exact issues, for example, while attempting to turn up or down the volume, the volume would jump around, so there was a design flaw in the sensor. Seems they maybe have fixed the issue, the knob seems more solid, less loose, and hasn't given me any issues yet. fingers crossed. The lighting doesn't seem to be as vibrant as it has been on past keyboard, i think its due to the type of keycaps used, these are high quality and more dense plastic caps, so that could be why, can easily switch keycaps back to the older cheap plastic ones if lighting is a huge deal. the lighting on the sides, and media keys are super vibrant. the wrist rest seems of high quality, and feels nice. snaps on with ease and has a firm connection. The lighting on it is a nice touch, i don't use the wrist rest though. so i put that back into the box. i haven't messed with the 360 degree analog stuff yet, so i can't say much for that. also haven't messed with the dual step actuation, but i think they'll come in more handy and useful than the 360 stuff. love the keyboard, and don't regret the purchase at all. still for the price, metal casing would've been better.

    Best Keyboard I've Had!

    I love this keyboard! I'm coming from a Razer Ornata. Totally worth!! You may have to change the actuation points in Razer Synapse because they are quite sensitive. The only other issue I'm having is sometimes in a particular game I play(Black Desert Online), I'll press a key and release. On occasion, it'll act like I'm still holding it down until I press again. But it might also be an issue with the game not liking the whole analog thing haha

    Love da keyboard

    Posted .

    Love this keyboard, I can remove the comfort thing, and yea, like the custom lights, really good, *flex on Logitech kids* it's super good to use my favorite part about it is the right top corner with the circle to adjust you volume and you can skip,play,pause you music when your playing a game. Really live the sound to it and how on the "razer synapse" you can control how hard you can press on the keyboard.

    I am coming to this keyboard from the original Huntsman Elite. I do miss my clicky switches because I love that sound, but that sound makes my wife want to murder me. Yes, there is still some bottoming out and the spacebar is loud, but I have to say the wrist rest is the best I have ever used. The switches are so smooth and linear that they are a pleasure to type on. I really do smile at times when typing on this keyboard. It is fast, accurate and yes, it is expensive. Is it worth it? In my opinion yes, it is worth it. You won't regret it and with Best Buys wonderful return policy if you do you are covered. The RGB lighting is wonderful, I haven't tested the gaming features yet but I have heard how amazing they are. I only wish they had kept the RGB bar on the top of the keyboard.

    I bought this keyboard after testing it as a display model. My determining factors that led to this decision were mostly based on the sound and the feel of the keys. I loved the solid yet firm and softer sounding switches this had over my previous Razer Black Widow V3 with green switches. I was moving into a new college apartment and didn't want my loud keystrokes bothering my roommates. The feeling of the keys and the wrist pad are a huge upgrade on any other Razer keyboard I've tried. Would definitely recommend to buy and would do it again. I paid $250 plus the 2 year insurance and would gladly do that all over again. I havent had a chance to test out al the capabilities it has in terms of its software but for the most part it looks rather manageable. Those features did not influence my purchase.

    Great Keyboard

    Posted .

    I'm a software developer and spend hours typing and occasionally playing games like CS:GO, Valheim, Starcraft, and a few other games. I love this keyboard. The feel of the analog switches feels great, the build quality is good, the new textured keys are a significant step up from the previous keyboard and the wrist rest is soft and durable. The only reason why I'm giving this keyboard 4 stars are because of the following. - The keys are slightly dimmer compared to the previous Huntsman. - While playing CS:GO, when I'm moving and I release one of the W, A, S, D keys, I still continue to go in that direction occasionally. I'm currently trying to find a resolution to this issue.

    Was also looking at the Corsair K100 RGB OPX for the same price but the polling rate on Corsair website states 4000 polling rate and the Razer Huntsman V2 optical mechanical switches has 8000 polling rate from Razer website. Since I had a Huntsman elite with linear mechanical switches already and worked great for me. Like the fact that the switches on this keyboard can be setup as a double activation points in Synape software. I did look for reviews online between the two Keyboards.

    Flawed but still good. Its pretty much a Huntsman v2 with linear switches However the anolog portion is pretty cool. I was able to emulate an analog joystick using razer's software and it worked pretty well. However, the springs had some inconsistencies in some of the keys so depressing them made the experience hard to get used to.

    The features on this keyboard are very nice, but it just was not for me. The analog function seems to work ok, but I just could not deal with the linear switches and the amount of pressure needed to register a keystroke. There is nothing wrong with the keyboard, but I ended up returning.

    Amazing keyboard with a plethora of customization using the Razer Synapse program. The keyboard although heavy and full size looks sleek and clean. Included wrist rest is very high quality. I enjoy the sound of the opto-mechanical keys, they are excellent! I did upgrade specific keycaps using the Razer Upgrade set (not included) as well as plug-in an USB 4port extension to the pass-through port on the keyboard for extra slots. The keyboard does require at least 2 usb slots or 1USB and 1 USB-C for full function of keyboard and lighting.

    Great concept. Fantastic quality product however... well the software needs updating and i havent found a single game thats plug and play out of the box that doesnt require a lot of configuration and I found more games that dont work with analog keys and mouse at the same time than i have found ones that do. For the price they should invest in profiles for games that are just plug and play, then let you adjust to how you like it specifically

    Returned the Razer for a CORSAIR - K100!

    |
    Posted .
    Owned for less than 1 week when reviewed.

    To start off, I originally purchased the CORSAIR - K100 RGB Wired Gaming Optical-Mechanical OPX Switch Keyboard with Elgato Stream Deck Software Integration. Then, after reading some more reviews and specs for the Razer - Huntsman V2 Analog Wired Gaming Opto-Mechanical Keyboard with RGB Chroma Backlighting, I decided to give it a try. I ultimately returned the Razer - Huntsman V2 Analog Wired Gaming Opto-Mechanical Keyboard with RGB Chroma Backlighting to go back to the CORSAIR - K100 RGB Wired Gaming Optical-Mechanical OPX Switch Keyboard with Elgato Stream Deck Software Integration...it is just a much nicer, sturdier, and quality Gaming keyboard! Don't get me wrong...as it really is a Good Gaming Keyboard w/a soft & plush comfortable wrist rest...though the material of the wrist rest does really feel quite flimsy...easy to tear or possibly peel/flake later. The keys of the Razer - Huntsman V2 Analog Wired Gaming Opto-Mechanical Keyboard feel great with their almost flat topped feeling keys (no real finger curve) and nice texture as well as the soft click/clack sounds...not too mechanical sounding. However, as others have stated, due to the nature of the Doubleshot PBX keys...the RGB lighting is quite dim as seen through the keys. This remains the case for the lighting surrounding the keyboard as well and on the edge of the wrist rest. This is especially so when compared to other keyboards...like the CORSAIR - K100 RGB Wired Gaming Optical-Mechanical OPX Switch Keyboard with Elgato Stream Deck Software Integration which is SIGNIFICANTLY brighter! Even my much older Corsair K95 RGB Platinum Keyboard is also much brighter...and after having it for almost 3 years and almost non-stop use at that. I must also add that the kickstands at the bottom of the Razer that lift the angle of the keyboard are very flimsy...and collapse very easily. Also Note: the Razer Huntsman V2 Analog keyboard only has a polling rate of 1000 Hz whereas the CORSAIR - K100 RGB Wired Gaming Optical-Mechanical OPX Switch Keyboard with Elgato Stream Deck Software Integration has a polling rate of 4000 Hz! In fact, the Corsair iCUE software even allows it to be set at 8000 Hz! Now, I am not some paid or rewarded Corsair sponsor/supporter nor any kind of Razer hater. I am merely providing facts regarding these choices so you may make your own decisions based on your own investigations and experiences. Do your homework!

    Amazing Keyboard

    I was skeptical about buying this keyboard after my original Black Widow finally died after years of use. The Huntsman is a quality keyboard with an RGB that is not over the top which I like. The weight is definitely something to get used to once you do it works like a glove. If somehow it is on sale during the holidays snatcht it up.

    If they ever get the software working, this would be a great keyboard. Constant key sticking is always happening, In games you can't control, but other than that a great KB.

    Fantastic key feel with responsive keys. The amount of customizability with the analog keys is frankly astounding. You can adjust the keypress throw per key between 1.5 and 3.6mm press. The "underglow" effect around the wrist rest pairs nicely with the basilisk v3 mouse.

    Best keyboard on the market, very good quality, premium feel. Features you didn't know you wanted, but it blows away literally everything else. There is no next best, it's this or nothing. I literally tried 4 other keyboards from big brands like SteelSeries, Logitech and Corsair but nothing comes close.
