Razer Huntsman Mini Analog keyboard provides more control

Razer’s latest peripheral is the Huntsman Mini Analog, the brand’s first 60% gaming keyboard with Analog Optical Switches. This gives the keyboard a focus not only on size, but also on precision, high performance, and portability.

The Razer Huntsman Mini Analog includes the brand’s own Analog Optical Switches as a highlight feature, giving users more control over sensitivity presets when gaming. They can also set the keyboard to double keymapping for digital and analog inputs, which is ideal for steering in racing games, Razer notes.

Design-wise, the Razer Huntsman Mini Analog features Doubleshot PBT keycaps with a textured finish, as well as the brand’s own Chroma RGB backlighting under the keyboard. Its body is made of aluminum for durability, and it includes a detachable USB-C cable for easy portability.

Razer says the Huntsman Mini Analog is a great option for LAN gaming, as well as those interested in a minimalist set-up or who might not have a large space. The Huntsman Mini is essentially 60% the size of a full-sized gaming keyboard.

While there are older models of the Huntsman Mini Analog 60% gaming keyboard, one of the best comparisons to this new peripheral would likely be the Razer Huntsman V2. It’s a full-sized gaming keyboard, but it has the Analog Optical Switches that we now see on the current Huntsman Mini Analog. Its original $250 sale price is also significantly more expensive than the Huntsman Mini Analog’s price.

The Razer Huntsman Mini Analog is now available for $150.

It is becoming common to see features from premium lines make their way down to more entry-level products at cheaper price points. We saw that recently in gaming laptops, with Lenovo introducing its lower-cost IdeaPad Gaming 3 laptops with the design, venting, and cooling features typically found in its premium Legion brand gaming laptops.

The Razer Huntsman Mini Analog is now available for $150 at Razer.com, as well at RazerStore locations globally and through authorized retailers.

The Razer Huntsman Mini convinced me of the joys of tiny keyboards
razer hunstman mini review dsc00994

When it comes to PC gaming, I’m the type who likes a big, full-size keyboard with a numpad. Extra buttons are a bonus. That's why Razer's new Hunstman Mini, the company's first 60% keyboard, didn't fit my preferences at first blush.

The Hunstman Mini isn't just a tenkeyless keyboard, which lacks a numpad. Razer's Hunstman Tournament Edition has that covered. The Hunstman Mini takes things a step further by hacking off a number of keys you might consider essential, such as the home, delete, and arrow keys, and your entire function row.

Whatever you do, don’t click this error if you see it pop up
A hacker typing on an Apple MacBook laptop, which shows code on its screen.

Hackers have devised a new, deceptive method to trick users into installing a malware named ClickFix, according to cybersecurity firm Proofpoint. The scheme involves enticing users with fake solutions to common errors in popular services such as Chrome, OneDrive, and Microsoft. Once users download and execute these "fixes" by clicking the Copy fix button, they unwittingly run a PowerShell or a Windows Run dialogue command that compromises their systems.

This dialogue installs a "root certificate" to flush the DNS cache, remove the clipboard content, show a fake message, and install an additional remote PowerShell script that does an anti-VM check before the info-stealer is installed. Various hacker groups, including those responsible for ClearFake, allegedly use this method. Proofpoint details how hackers exploit jeopardized sites by incorporating a malicious script handed over by Binance's Smart Chain contract on the blockchain to spread malware and infect susceptible Windows computers.
