    Im refunding it, its software related problem and they keep telling me the 4 same things on support over and over.
    This looks like the tartarus pro sticky keys, so avoid it as long you can because at best its gonna take YEARS untill they fix it if they even try to do so

    Yeah, I'm definitely having the repeating key issue as well. Not happy.

    So, after a lot of back and forth (AND them proposing RMA) with the support team -- we were promised a fix, that was two months ago. Any chance that it will EVER be fixed? I quite love this keyboard, and I would gladly put it aside and use something else until it's fixed. I'm pretty disappointed with Razer and their software, but I guess it's somewhat better than having shitty software AND disgustingly bad build quality... looking at Logitech and their G915.

    I got mine today. It's great! I love the build quality and comfort. I read quite often that the keyboard is quite loud. It's louder than my previous one but I actually like its sound. It's satisfying to type on it.

    The analog feature is a hit or miss thing in the games I've tried. Either it works (partially) or it doesn't due to games limiting the input method for the session to the one the game was started with. If it works I find it somewhat hard to control because it doesn't make use of the full distance a key can travel. In games with a driving component I got full acceleration halfway through and therefore minor adjustments (acceleration or deceleration) are extremely difficult / require a lot of concentration.

    I also wish Synapse would allow actuation point config beyond 3.6mm. When primarily typing I find myself often slightly hitting the edge of a nearby key and that is enough to trigger a key press.

    Edit: I get the "keys stuck/repeating itself" problem as well. The only way to fix it permanently is to disable/uninstall Synapse but that renders a lot of my peripherie's features inaccessible/useless.

    I love everything about my new Huntsman V2 Analog but.... the sticking keys issue is an absolute deal breaker and I am returning it today. I have had the keyboard 2 days and have experienced the issue 3x already. Maybe I will buy it again when Razer finally addresses the issue. Having people send videos when all they have to do is look at their own forums and Reddit is ridiculous. I thought $250 would be a major upgrade over my Blackwidow Elite (orange), I was sadly mistaken. The features are amazing but this flaw is impossible to overlook. I am really bummed to be returning it, I wanted so bad to find a fix online. Feels like I bought the car of my dreams with a defective steering wheel.

    Please fix your Synapse/optical switch issue.

    What is this radio silence, why don't we get any updates from Razer about this, are they even aware of it? Also, Razer Naga X keeps resetting mousepad calibration for some reason.

    To those of you who experiencing the sticky key issue:
    Are all your keys affected by this or only WASD? I've noticed it only on WASD and I wonder if it could be related to the "WASD to controller joystick" feature even though it's disabled.

    Even my space bar managed to get stuck at some point.

    edit: I installed the latest update, was hoping that maybe they addressed the issue, nope lol, D just got stuck again, how fucking useless. Unable to fix their damn flagship keyboard (and Elite before that) after all this time.. I got no words. I'll be getting rid of this keyboard soon, going to steer clear of razer for the rest of my life.

    I just dont get it. If optical switches are going to be their top of the line option, why wouldn't they address this issue ASAP? I have now returned a Huntsman Elite and a Huntsman V2 Analog for the same exact issue. Looks like I will be sticking with mechanical for good.

    Yeah, after almost two weeks of back and forth with the support I'll return mine as well.

    Another major issue I have is a configured actuation point of 3,6mm in Synapse is actually equivalent to 1.5-2.0mm on keypress. So, most keys register at or even before a key traveled half its max distance of 4mm. With actuation set to 1.5mm it registers a press at 0.5-1.0mm in practice. That's awful and especially renders analog inputs completely unusable.

    Just refund it/fill a paypal dispute.
    I had to because i sent the keyboard back and never got a response from them after that.

    They wont fix shit, they got us good with the tartarus pro once, they are just doing the same.

    Same issues with phantom / sticky keys…

    Razer has asked that I exchange it, I have TWICE now. I am on my third and all three of them have the same issue. However, if you exit Synapse the issues go away completely.

    Because it is a software issue. I wish they were open about it and possibly gave us some kind of ETA, this IS their flagship keyboard, after all.

    Did the new Synapse update fix the HUNTSMAN v2 ANALOG issue with sticking keys?

    I saw the update but haven't seen any results on the forums.

    No. It still does it. This is ridiculous, no Razer representative will ever tell you anything about this issue with their flagship keyboard, they've been taught to stay silent on this one.

    Yeah, I returned mine and was hoping for some good news to go repurchase one after I saw the Synapse update. My Blackwidow Elite has been rock solid, I guess I will just stick with that. The Huntsman V2 Analog has some great features though, they really need to address this issue. Definitely a missed opportunity for Razer.
