Razer veers into productivity with new mouse, keyboard, and mousepad

Razer is well-known for its range of accessories and laptops aimed at the gaming crowd, but today the company announced a new venture into the world of productivity. Through a partenrship with Humanscale, a company focusing on workplace ergonomics, Razer introduced its Productivity Suite, consisting of a mouse, keyboard, and mousepad, all coming in white and light grey tones.

The mouse is called the Razer Pro Click, and it features an ergonomic design that lets the user's hand sit at a 30-degree angle. The mouse works in both wired and wireless modes, and if you go wireless, you can use Bluetooth or Razer's custom 2.4GHz connection with the included dongle. The mouse lasts up to 400 hours on Bluetooth or 200 hours with the 2.4Ghz dongle, and the wired connections uses the included USB Type-A to microUSB plug, which also charges the mouse.

The Pro Click has a 16,000 DPI sensor and eight programmable buttons, which can be customized using its Synapse 3 software. These buttons include a scroll wheel with tilt-click support, and they're rated for 50 million clicks. It can also connect to up to 4 devices, with a button on the bottom allowing users to switch between connected devices.

The keyboard is called Razer Pro Type, and it features the same wireless and wired connectivity features, as well as support for four connected devices with fast switching. Unlike the mouse, however, it uses a braided USB Type-C cable for wired connectivity.

The keys themselves use Razer's proprietary Orange switches, which promise to be both tactile and quiet, and they're rated for 80 million clicks. They're also backlit, though only in white. Battery life is up to 12 hours with the back light on, or 84/78 hours with the backlight off, for Bluetooth and the 2,4GHz, respectively.

Finally, there's the Razer Pro Glide, a mousepad made with a micro-weaved cushioned surface, non-slip base, and high-density foam backing.

All three products are available today. The Razer Pro Click costs $99.99/€109.99, the Razer Pro Type costs $139.99/€149.99, and the Razer Pro Glide costs $9.99/€11.99.
