The Razer Huntsman V2 Analog is Razer's most premium gaming keyboard to date. It's made of a plush leatherette material and has an RGB light bar that syncs up with the lighting in the keyboard. The Huntsman's keys have a bit more resistance, but they're not as resistant or clicky as Cherry MX Blue switches.

Reviewers from Tomsguide have found the following[***]:
The Razer Huntsman V2 Analog gives each key its own programmable actuation point. The keys simply don't feel as good as some of Razer's optical-mechanical or purely mechanical switches. Still, if you've dreamed about per-key actuation and the SteelSeries Apex Pro made too many compromises, this keyboard might be one of the best.

Pros[**]
  • Powerful per-key actuation
  • Fully adjustable
  • Works with Razer Synapse software
Cons[**]
  • Keys don't feel as refined as mechanical switches
