Product Overview

Razer Huntsman Mini is a 60% optical gaming keyboard in the company's Huntsman lineup of industry-leading gaming keyboard with optical switches that outperform traditional mechanical switches in both speed and response time.
The 60% form factor allows the Huntsman Mini to be exceptionally compact without sacrificing performance or functionality. It retains all keys essential for gaming. With Razer Synapse 3, users can assign functions or macros to any key via Razer Hypershift.
Available in Black and Mercury White, the Huntsman Mini comes with either the clicky purple switches or the newly improved linear red optical switches. These new linear optical switches, which debut with the Huntsman Mini, feature silicon sound dampeners that significantly reduce noise without affecting speed or smoothness.
Each Razer Huntsman Mini comes with Doubleshot PBT keycaps that are more durable than regular ABS keycaps. The Huntsman Mini features a standard bottom row, allowing for easy customization with most standard keycap sets.

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.

Pros
  • Sleek, light design
  • Customizable RGB lighting
  • Supports Razer software
Cons
  • Lacks 60-percent-specific shortcuts

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.

Pros
  • Outstanding build quality
  • Full RGB backlighting with individually-lit keys
  • Excellent typing experience
  • Very low pre-travel distance
  • Well-built PBT keycaps and Clicky Optical switches

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

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.

Pros
  • Sleek, minimalist design
  • Easy to use
  • Comfortable keys
Cons
  • Expensive for a gaming peripheral
  • Lacks customizable RGB lighting
