Reviewers from pcmag have found the following[***]:
At $119.99 with purple switches, the Huntsman Mini is slightly higher-priced than many of its popular counterparts. It has Razer's "purple," clicky optical key switches, somewhat akin to the classic Cherry MX Blue. The keyboard comes with "doubleshot" PBT keycaps with additional legends.

Reviewers from rtings have found the following[***]:
The Razer Huntsman Mini is an exceptional gaming keyboard. It has an excellent build quality, it has full RGB backlighting with individually-lit keys, and all keys are macro-programmable. The Clicky Optical switches on our unit provide an excellent typing experience with plenty of tactile feedback. It isn't the most comfortable to type on as it has a fairly high profile and it doesn't come with a wrist rest.

techradar[3]

Sentiment Score[*] 84%
Reviewers from techradar have found the following[***]:
The Razer Huntsman Mini is the smallest keyboard we've used that's competent for serious gaming. This keyboard measures just 11.3 inches long and 4.07 inches high, and weighs in at just 1 lb. Because it's USB-C, it means you can easily swap cables out either for aesthetic reasons or if the included cable ever gets damaged somehow. Razer also includes its Doubleshot PBT keycaps, which feel amazing.

Pros[**]
  • Super-fast optical keyswitches
  • Excellent build quality
  • Comfortable keyboard
Cons[**]
  • Expensive for a 60% form factor keyboard

Sentiment Score[*] 68%
Reviewers from tomsguide have found the following[***]:
The Razer Huntsman Mini keyboard works right out of the box with basic functionality. To remap keys and change up the RGB options you'll need to download Razer's Synapse software. Its $130 price tag is not prohibitive, at the same price as the tenkeyless Huntsman Tournament Edition.

  • Sleek, minimalist design

  • Comfortable keys
Cons[**]
  • Expensive for a gaming peripheral
