Razer’s answer to the problem of standing out in a saturated mechanical gaming keyboard market is optical switches. It first introduced the new clicky optical switches on the Huntsman Elite, and it’s now bringing the linear variant to the Huntsman Tournament Edition. The big difference is that the TE model has been designed with a focus on esports, which means a more compact, no-nonsense design without unnecessary trappings like dedicated media keys.
I have to say I really like the simple, utilitarian design. It’s plain, but that’s also why it looks so good, without any protruding bits of plastic or aggressive lines. razer’s esports oriented focus is doing it plenty of favours – just look at the razer Viper, which has a fairly clean design as well and also happens to be the best mouse razer has made in a while.
