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 Pcmag have found the following[***]:
The $249.99 Razer Huntsman V2 Analog is a textbook example of the “flagship keyboard.” Its highlight is the keyboard's namesake feature: Razer's Analog Optical switches. We're still not sold on using a gaming keyboard to emulate a gamepad, but the extra customization options have many, cool uses.
Reviewers from Rtings have found the following[***]:
The Razer Huntsman V2 Analog is an exceptional gaming keyboard that features Analog Optical switches. You can enable its analog mode to mimic the feel of an analog joystick or program the keys to perform two actions with one keypress. The Analog Optical and SteelSeries' Omnipoint switches are both linear with adjustable pre-travel distances. Both keyboards offer excellent typing experience, but the Huntsman's switches might be too sensitive for typos.
Reviewers from Techradar have found the following[***]:
The Razer Huntsman V2 Analog is the company's latest flagship gaming keyboard. It includes Razer's Analog Optical Switches, a new and innovative key switch technology. This allows for full customization to completely optimize your gaming and typing experiences. The keyboard can now be powered via a single USB-C or USB 3.0 connection. It comes in matte black and has a sturdy aluminum top plate.
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.
Reviewers from Tomshardware have found the following[***]:
Razer Huntsman V2 Analog debuts Razer's Analog Optical mechanical switches. With Razer's Synapse software, you can set any of the keyboard's keys to work like the functions offered via an Xbox controller's left and right analog joysticks. The keyboard's customizable actuation points and double inputs work with any game or app.
Reviewers from Trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
The Razer Huntsman V2 Analog is one of the best gaming keyboards on the market. It features super-speedy optical switches and the now infamous Chroma backlighting. There's a myriad of more traditional gaming functionalities such as full NKRO and anti-ghosting, as well as the ability to enter a “gaming mode”
