For broader compatibility with a wider range of devices, you can also connect the keyboard via Bluetooth. Razer says you can expect a battery life of up to 200 hours. Alternatively, you can also hook up the keyboard via USB-C. The USB-C cable doubles as a charger.
Overall, a pretty feature-rich wireless gaming keyboard with a compact form factor and the usual features like NKRO and macro support. The bad news is the pricing. Razer charges $179.99 (189.99EUR).
Razer™, the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers (Hong Kong Stock Code: 1337), today announced the BlackWidow V3 Mini HyperSpeed keyboard, delivering the perfect mix of wireless freedom and functionality in a compact form factor.
Designed for gamers wanting a sleek, minimalist look or those needing to save desktop space, the BlackWidow V3 Mini HyperSpeed is a feature-rich, 65% gaming keyboard with full-height keys, arrow and navigation keysets for maximum usability, and Razer HyperSpeed Wireless. By retaining functionality and adding fast HyperSpeed Wireless for seamless, low-latency wireless connectivity in a compact form factor, the BlackWidow V3 Mini HyperSpeed is the ideal gaming and all-round use keyboard for both clutter-free, and limited space set-ups.
“Since its launch in 2010, the BlackWidow range has set the benchmark for gaming keyboards and has been continuously evolving with community feedback,” says Alvin Cheung, Senior Vice President of Razer’s Peripherals Business Unit. “Since the launch of the Razer Huntsman Mini, we’ve been getting requests for a compact wireless keyboard, which resulted in the Razer BlackWidow V3 Mini HyperSpeed – it’s compact and wireless, while still retaining the essential keys for both gaming and everyday use.”
With its space-saving compact form-factor, the BlackWidow V3 Mini HyperSpeed retains the most frequently used keys outside of the standard alphanumeric layout, with a cleverly designed, compact key layout, minimizing space. By keeping a dedicated arrows key set and moving the navigation group to the side of the keyboard, users easily access the most frequently used functions of a full-sized keyboard, with all other full-sized functions available through secondary keys.
To meet the demands of minimalistic, wire-free set-ups the BlackWidow V3 Mini HyperSpeed uses Razer’s new HyperSpeed Multi-Device Dongle, allowing a compatible Razer HyperSpeed keyboard/mouse combination to be connected to the PC, all via a single dongle. With support for the HyperSpeed Multi-Device Dongle already built into a wide range of existing HyperSpeed Wireless enabled products, the new dongle further helps to reduce desktop clutter and frees up an all-important USB port.
The BlackWidow V3 Mini HyperSpeed is also Bluetooth enabled, allowing seamless switching between up to 3 paired devices. A USB-C cable completes the connectivity options, allowing for use and charging at the same time, with each full charge lasting up to 200 hours of use.
Designed as a compact keyboard, the BlackWidow V3 Mini HyperSpeed still packs in Razer’s renowned industry-leading switch technologies. Available with either silent, linear Yellow Switches with newly improved sound dampeners, or clicky, tactile Green Switches for that satisfying sound. The keyboard also features per key Razer Chroma RGB lighting, sturdier Doubleshot ABS keycaps with legends that will never fade, and extra-thick side walls, giving maximum durability and longevity with a premium typing experience.
With lag-free HyperSpeed Wireless gaming in a sleek, 65% form-factor, the Razer BlackWidow V3 Mini HyperSpeed is the perfect wireless gaming keyboard for any space, and versatile enough for all setups and daily use.
