Razer Pro Type Ultra and Pro Click Mini are for office workers who like to game
Razer is primarily focused on gaming products, but the company has been expanding its horizons in recent times. Its Razer Book is an ultrabook designed for productivity, its Razer Blade 15 Studio Edition is aimed at creators and its new Zephyr mask is aimed at the personal hygiene and health market. Its latest products are the Pro Type Ultra and Pro Click Mini designed to complement devices like the aforementioned Razer Book, or in other work from home or office contexts. However, both are also equally capable as gaming peripherals.
The Razer Pro Type Ultra features what Razer calls silent mechanical switches that incorporate a dampening sound to keep things more tolerable for anyone in earshot while the mechanism has been designed to last up to 80 million clicks. For typing comfort, the Pro Type UItra includes a cushioned wrist rest while the keycaps are lined with a fingerprint-resistant soft touch coating. The keyboard can also connect to up to four devices over Bluetooth, Razer Hyperspeed or a wired connection. Battery life over Bluetooth is rated at up to 214 hours with Hyperspeed connectivity reducing that slightly to 207 hours.
Unsurprisingly, the Pro Type Ultra is designed to work with Razer’s new companion Pro Click Mini mouse. Like the former, the new Pro Click Mini includes silent mechanical switches designed to make it more pleasant to use in the office or at home. Razer says these switches will deliver up to 15 million clicks while the scroll wheel can be switched between free-spin mode, tactile mode for precise scrolling and tilt-click for horizontal scrolling. It connects over either Bluetooth or Hyperspeed with up to 725 hours of use over the former and up to 465 hours with the latter.
The Razer Pro Type Ultra is available for pre-order from the Razer website for US$$160 and will ship from November 19. The Razer Pro Click Mini is available for purchase through Razer’s website now for US$80.
