Style cannot be missing
We would not be in front of a Corsair product if we were to interface with a keyboard that does not wink at good taste on design. The Razer Huntsman V2 subject of this review is presented in a cardboard that with its green hues immediately recalls the iconic colors of Razer, and this time it is completely recyclable and structured with an eye to the environment. Inside we find – apart from the keyboard, well protected to avoid bumps and immediately able to prove solid – the power cable, the Razer palm rest and the instruction manual.
Impossible not to notice it already while proceeding to the positioning of the Razer Huntsman V2 , we are talking about a high-end article that does not want to know that it has compromises, and that in reality may not be great for some users only in case the choices of Razer do not are appreciated. In fact, we are not dealing with the usual mechanical keyboard, and it only takes a few seconds to realize how the very soft mat , which this time also covers the frames to avoid collisions with the wrists, is really comfortable, both for writing and for gaming.
The keys have been made of double-injection PBT , a technology that avoids fading of the writing after many hours of use. The layout we have had the opportunity to try is the American one, and for now there is no talk of an Italian version of the product, even if it must be said that the first is preferred by many, and it is one of the first. details to consider when interested in the device. The Razer Huntsman V2 we are talking about in this review at the same time comes with a cheaper model that does not offer the numeric keypad and is consequently more compact, and is otherwise exactly identical to the main device. Another detail to take into consideration concerns the choice of optical switches, available in the louder purple version, on which we have put our hand, and in the linear red one.
Solidity and performance
Whichever option you prefer, the company has studied a system that uses sound absorbing foam in order to reduce the noise produced by the new keyboard, which still offers excellent audio feedback, which however may not satisfy the ears of all. users. With multimedia keys, also programmable, which also allow you to lower and raise the volume quickly, the article is more complete than ever. Apart from comfort during sessions, whether it be for play or work, it is good to point out that Razer has invested its energies in creating an article that presents itself with almost no latency: HyperPolling technologies have been combinedand the brand new input logging function used for the switches, based on light beams, and which allows commands to be almost instantaneous. In fact, we find up to 8,000 Hz polling rates , and as explained by the giant, everything is sometimes 10 times better than what the competition has achieved.
Although it is possible to exploit the potential of the keyboard already with the plug and play approach, if you do not proceed with the installation of Razer Synapse 3 you quickly realize how you are only partially exploiting the various features designed by the manufacturer. for her little gem. The product is in fact customizable with a thousand details , from RGB lighting to the settings of the individual keys, with a total of 5 profiles that are stored inside the body, a detail that is particularly useful when you change computers and do not want to proceed with configuring settings.
