Razer Huntsman V3 Pro

The Razer Huntsman V3 Pro is the third generation of keyboards with optical switches. There are three variants available: the full-sized Huntsman V3 Pro, the tenkeyless Huntsman V3 Pro TKL and the Huntsman V3 Pro Mini featuring a 60% form factor.

Analog Optical Switches

Optical switches are actuated by a signal of light. This technology provides a few advantages over common mechanical switches which actuate by creating a physical contact. It makes a lower error rate possible. The technique was further improved on release of the Razer Huntsman V2 Analog: new analog switches made it possible to not only differentiate between the two states “the key is pressed” and “the key is not pressed” but to also know how far down a key is pressed. This information allows different nuances of inputs in games and enables dual-step actuation, i.e., two actions executed within a single keystroke. All models of the Huntsman V3 Pro are equipped with analog optical switches of the newest generation.

Huntsman V3 Pro – Fine-Tuning of the Series

With the Huntsman V3 Pro, Razer is tweaking a few details but leaves the overall product similar to its predecessor. Many of the good things survived, for example the double-shot PBT keycaps, the impressive RGB lighting, the good gaming integration via Razer Synapse and the ghosting-protection via full n-key rollover. Also, a magnetic wrist rest is included again, although it had its lighting removed.

Razer Huntsman V3 Pro vs Huntsman V3 Pro TKL

The Razer Huntsman V3 Pro and Huntsman V3 Pro TKL are very similar and mainly differ in their sizes. The TKL version has no numpad and only one dedicated macro key, while the full-sized V3 Pro offers two macro keys. Both keyboards come with a multi-function digital wheel and media button.

"The Huntsman Pro is an impressive and high-quality gaming keyboard with a vast array of customizable features – but its extreme level of key customization, and the ability to reduce the actuation point down to a super-sensitive 0.1mm, means it’s more suited to wannabe pros, and its high price reflects that."
