IRVINE, USA – Razer™, the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers and the best-selling gaming peripherals company, today announced the Razer Huntsman Elite keyboard is the #1 best-selling gaming keyboard in the United States. This is based on total dollar sales across gaming keyboards according to The NPD Group, U.S. Retail Tracking Service.
Consumers continue to turn to the Razer Huntsman Elite which now reigns as the leading gaming keyboard since January 2019.
The Huntsman Elite excels in its gaming performance and function. The revolutionary keyboard is best known for its industry-leading optical switches, which provide unrivaled speed and durability when compared to traditional mechanical switches found in other gaming keyboards. It also features media keys and beautiful Chroma lighting all around each side of the keyboard, even when the plush wrist rest is attached.
“We are thrilled that gamers are turning to the Razer Huntsman Elite as their trusted keyboard of choice,” says Bob Ohlweiler, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Razer USA. “Razer has long driven innovation in keyboard switch technology, and optical switches are no exception as they deliver the absolute best performance. The rise of the Huntsman Elite shows that optical is the future as gamers choose performance over tradition.”
The Razer Huntsman Elite was not an overnight best-seller. It was birthed from innovation.
At its initial release in 2018, one of the biggest challenges it faced was its groundbreaking optical switch technology, a concept novel to the mainstream market accustomed to traditional mechanical switches.
Early adopters welcomed the new technology and helped establish trust and credibility to its improved performance. Today, the optical switches are repeatedly chosen over traditional switches as the Razer Huntsman Elite maintains its #1 spot amongst gaming keyboards.
