Packaging and Accessories

Razer's green might as well be its own color now, and we see it as accent strips on the front and back of the packaging for the new Huntsman V2 TKL before it takes over the sides completely. Get used to seeing more of this black and green combination as we proceed with the review, especially with Razer Synapse. The product box is thicker than I expected, although aptly sized in the other two dimensions. On the front is a large render of the keyboard all lit up, with the company logo and product name along with salient marketing features for customers who chance upon the keyboard in a brick-and-mortar store. This continues on the back and sides to where there is a lot to learn simply by reading through what is on the box. Two seals in the middle and side flaps keep the contents in place during transit.

Opening the box, we see the keyboard inside a plastic wrap to keep it clean and pristine. It is held in place between two thick foam pieces, and the accessories underneath also come packaged in plastic, but with a black wax finish. These are not easily removed given the multiple layers of folded cardbard holding the foam pieces in place, which makes for good protection, but a less convenient unboxing experience. A set of stickers, welcome letter, and quick start guide have been included in a separate pouch on the underside of the box. More detailed manuals are available on the support page, including this English version that goes over the set up, usage, and customization of the keyboard in detail.

Two accessories come with the Razer Huntsman V2 TKL, and the first is a detachable USB Type-A to Type-C cable. There are Razer markings on the plug housings, which in turn use the Razer green for the plastic inserts. The Type-C housing is also larger than usual and has a groove cutout on either side, which we will get to on the next page. Razer also includes a wrist rest, which the company describes as ergonomic. I would argue that not using one is more ergonomic, but most users will find it useful with high-profile cases and mechanical switches. This wrist rest has a plush top with a leatherette finish that has the logo embossed in the middle, and many "For Gamers. By Gamers." markings have been etched into the plastic bottom, where we also see six long rubber pads for friction against the resting surface.
