What switch type is used in Razer Huntsman Tournament Edition Keyboards?
The Huntsman TE uses the new Razer™ Linear Optical switch.
Does the Razer Huntsman Tournament Edition keyboard have on-board memory?
Yes, the keyboard comes with Hybrid On-Board Memory and Cloud Storage. This means you can store 5 profiles directly on your keyboard so that you get your personalized settings anytime, anywhere.
What regional keyboard layouts are available for the Razer Huntsman Tournament Edition?
The Razer Huntsman Tournament Edition comes in US and International ISO layouts only.
What is on-the-fly macro recording?
On-the-fly macro recording allows users to record lengthy macros in the game without having to access driver menus or other software. For example, hitting the "Macro Record" key then inputting a sequence of multiple spells in World of Warcraft saves this action to the specified key. The same sequence of spells can then be executed automatically with the actuation of that one button.
Can I use On the Fly Macro Recording without installing the drivers? Do I have to keep the application running by keeping the system tray icon open?
On the Fly Macro Recording only works when the driver is installed and Synapse 3 running in the background. The system tray icon should show up in the Windows taskbar. If you start the recording without the drivers or Synapse 3 in the system tray, the LED for the On the Fly Macro Recording on the Razer Huntsman Tournament Edition will blink three times and turn off instead of remaining lit. Please install the driver and allow the Synapse 3 to run in the background order to make use of this recorder.
How do I clean my Razer keyboard?
Before cleaning, we suggest unplugging the device from your computer. If you wish to clean under the keycaps, Razer suggests holding the unit upside down and/or using compressed air from a can. The overall finish can be cleaned with wipes generally used for cleaning your computer monitor or sunglasses. Please ensure that the surface is free of large dust particles or debris before wiping the surface with any product. Wiping debris into the surface can lead to minor scratches on the surface of the unit.
Note: Under no circumstances should you ever submerge the keyboard in any type of liquid. Submerging the keyboard in any liquid will void the warranty on your keyboard.
How can I modify or disassemble my Razer product?
While you are free to swap the keycaps, we cannot help you in modifying or disassembling your Razer product since that will void the manufacturer’s warranty on the unit.
What’s the difference between Razer Opto-Mechanical™ switches and the Razer Linear Optical Switches?
The new Razer Linear Optical switches are light and quiet, have a 40-gram actuation force and 1.0mm actuation point where the Razer Optomechanical switch is light and clicky, has a 45-gram actuation force and 1.5mm actuation point.
Can I program the "FN" key on my Razer Huntsman Tournament Edition?
You cannot customize the function of the FN button. This key is used for various functionalities including on-the-fly macro recording, changing keyboard LED, switching to gaming mode, etc.
Can I adjust the backlight brightness on the Razer Huntsman Tournament Edition?
Yes, you can adjust the backlight brightness in Synapse 3 or on-the-fly by using Fn + F11 to make it dimmer and Fn + F12 to make it brighter.
Will my Razer Huntsman Tournament Edition work on a gaming console (Xbox360, PS4, etc.)?
