Razer's Huntsman Mini is among the first of the big PC-gaming brands to make a 60 percent keyboard. With 61 keys, the keyboard has all the keys you'd find in the primary "typewriter" section of an ordinary keyboard. The functions from all the lost keys live on as secondary inputs accessed using the Fn key.

The Razer Huntsman Mini is an exceptional gaming keyboard with a compact form factor. The Clicky Optical switches on our unit provide an excellent typing experience with plenty of tactile feedback, but their loud typing noise isn't suitable for a quiet office setting. All keys are macro-programmable and you can program them on the keyboard itself or through Razer's Synapse 3 software.

Pros[**]
  • Excellent typing experience
  • Cherry MX Brown switches provide good tactile feedback
  • Supports Synapse 3 software
Cons[**]
  • Loud typing noise
  • Loud clicky Optical switches

Sentiment Score[*] 81%
Reviewers from Techradar have found the following[***]:
The Razer Huntsman Mini is the latest in Razer's flagship series. It's the smallest keyboard we've used that would be competent for serious gaming. This keyboard measures just 11.3 inches long and 4.07 inches high, and weighs in at just 1 lb. Even with the 60% design, the keyboard frame has a minimal design, and the Mercury White color option is just pristine.

Pros[**]
  • Beautiful 60% form factor
  • Comfortable keyboard frame
  • Doubleshot PBT keycaps
  • Removable cable
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

Reviewers from Tomsguide have found the following[***]:
The Razer Huntsman Mini is the newest member of Razer's consistent (if a bit pricey) family. The Mini comes in two flavors: Clicky and Linear optical switches. There's no function row, no home cluster or arrow keys, and obviously, no number pad. It's not really a Razer gaming peripheral without colorful RGB lighting.

Pros[**]
  • 60% form factor
  • Lots of RGB options
  • Easy to use
  • Comfortable keyboard
Cons[**]
  • Lack of extra keys
  • Not as fast-paced as competitors

Reviewers from Tomshardware have found the following[***]:
Razer Huntsman Mini is the brand's first 60% keyboard. The keyboard will feature the second generation of Razer Linear Optical switches. The new linear switches are quieter than the linear optical switches that debuted on the Razer Huntsman Tournament Edition. In August 2020, Razer made the HuntsmanMini available with Razer's Linear Optical (2nd Generation) switches for $10 more.

Pros[**]
  • Much-diminished noise compared to previous linear optical switches
  • Razer Linear Optical switches are quieter than previous linear switches
  • Easy-to-use RGB wrist rest
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

Sentiment Score[*] 75%
Reviewers from Trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
The Razer Huntsman Mini is a tiny gaming keyboard that costs £129.99. It makes use of Razer's own optical switches which are a brand-new inclusion for this board. Razer's Chroma lighting engine succeeds in providing the most crisp and sharp lighting that is all concentrated in a smaller chassis.

Pros[**]
  • Superb build quality
  • Optical switches
  • Lightweight and comfortable
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular
