Razer revamps DeathStalker with V2 low-profile keyboard with optical switches

Razer DeathStalker is back with a newly upgraded V2 version. This week, Razer unveiled the new DeathStalker V2, V2 Pro, and the V2 Pro Tenkeyless, all featuring Razer's new low-profile optical switches. 

While developing the DeathStalker V2, it was important to Razer to retain the low-profile aesthetic of the original. The new V2 versions are incredibly slim and thanks to new optical switch technology, the chiclet keys should feel even nicer to type on. The low-profile optical switch is available in two variants – a linear, non-clicky switch, and a clicky version with tactile feedback. Both switches offer an industry-leading 70 million clicks rating, beating out competing switches by as much as 40%.

This sturdy and slim gaming keyboard will be available in three flavours – the standard DeathStalker V2, a Pro version and a Tenkeyless version for those who prefer to not have a numpad. The Pro and Tenkeyless versions include Razer HyperSpeed Wireless, offering wireless use with minimal latency. Both of these versions also have a Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity option as well.

The main difference between the standard and pro versions is the wireless connectivity. Everything else remains the same, so you'll get all the same features, like Chroma RGB lighting.

The Razer DeathStalker V2 Pro is available now, priced at £249.99. The standard version will cost £199.99 and is due to become available in Q3. The DeathStalker V2 Pro Tenkeyless is also coming in Q3,priced at £219.99.
