New Razer Releases - Mini Everything!

Razer has been on a roll recently, releasing a ton of new products. These past few weeks, they've released three in quick succession, which are all quite interesting. We hope you enjoy!


Razer DeathadderV2 Mini

The Deathadder V2 Mini with grip tape applied

First up, we have an awesome new release: the Razer Deathadder V2 Mini (long name, I know; many call it the RDA V2 mini). For those who don't know, the Razer Deathadder is one of the most popular gaming mice in history (why it's so popular). Now, Razer has released a new and smaller version, similar to how they released the mini version of the Razer Viper. One of the few complaints about it is that it's pretty large, and is difficult to maneuver with smaller hands. Not necessarily in its length, which is a slightly-above-average 5 inches, but it is also quite wide. The Deathadder V2 Mini is 4.5 inches, and is also a bit thinner as well, which is a welcome change. The shape is still the same as the Deathadder, just a bit scaled down.

Another proponent of this mouse is that it is not only smaller in size, but also in price. The Deathadder V2 is $70, the mini is $50. It has the standard six button layout, with the one behind the mouse bound to DPI cycling by default. In addition, it also comes with grip tape, which can be applied to make the mouse easier to control. It's 62 grams, which puts it squarely in the ultralight class. We may be coming out with a review of this soon; stay tuned!


Razer Huntsman Mini

The Razer Huntsman Mini is the fourth release in the line of Huntsman keyboards. It's Razer's first ever 60% keyboard, and is the first 60% keyboard to ever come out of the Big Five gaming brands (Corsair, Razer, Logitech, Steelseries, HyperX). Many people, especially in the mechanical keyboard community, were excited when this keyboard came out as the 60% layout saves space on your desk.

As a signature of all new Razer products, the Huntsman Mini comes with Razer's optical switches. You can choose either the clicky purple variant or the linear red variant. Sadly, tactile is not an option yet. The Huntsman mini is actually very similar to the Ducky One 2 Mini, with a solid plastic case, detachable USB-C, 60% layout, and good switches.


Razer Concourse Backpack

And finally, Razer recently released a backpack. Although their backpacks do not seem to be hugely popular, they are important so that Razer can establish itself as not only a gaming brand, but a lifestyle brand. It can fit up to a 17.3" laptop, and also comes with full RGB backlighting (just kidding). Overall, it is a fairly standard backpack, the most notable detail being the jarring "Razer green" interior.
