Type Keyboard
Price $129.99

The Razer Huntsman Elite and other Huntsman keyboards have been quite popular for the company, but now they're releasing my preferred form factor and the Razer Huntsman Tournament Edition brings the Huntsman mentality down to the TKL form factor.  The Huntsman Tournament Edition brings a few key updates for the company as they're clearly moving more towards a market-friendly model and are listening.  The new Razer Linear Optical Switch, Doubleshot PBT keycaps, On-board storage for profiles, and it does not require Razer Synapse software to be installed.  When it comes to customization Razer has thankfully gone with a standard bottom row and now you can replace the entirety of the keycaps if you wish as the stem on the Linear Optical Switch matches that of the standard Cherry style.  But how did we feel about the $129 board in general?
