When it comes to mouse, keyboard, and mousepad peripherals, gamers have long gotten the best the tech world has to offer, boasting everything from zero latency wireless function and high-precision controls to ergonomic working postures and sustained comfort through long periods of gameplay. The Razer Productivity Suite brings those high-performance elements to the non-gaming crowd.
Developed in collaboration with Humanscale, the line seeks to bring the comfort, durability, and quality of gaming peripherals to the average PC user, so folks who spend their computer time typing documents, reviewing spreadsheets, and taking Zoom meetings can enjoy the same performance and ergonomics that PC gamers do. We know, regular PC users can just buy gaming accessories to get the same thing, but Razer claims, these ones come with styling that’s more suited for work environments. Basically, you won’t have to spend 10 minutes every morning trying to figure out how to turn off the blinking LEDs.
The Razer Productivity Suite consists of three peripherals: the Pro Click mouse, the Pro Type keyboard, and the Pro Glide mousepad. The Pro Click is a wireless mouse that boasts more expansive palm support than your standard mouse, preventing your wrist from anchoring onto work surfaces to alleviate strain and promote better arm posture. It has a 16,000 DPI optical sensor for precise tracking of every move, as well as eight programmable buttons, so you can assign a variety of functions for easy access from your mouse. You can pair it to a PC either via Bluetooth or the 2.4GHz dongle, with the former getting you up to 400 hours of use and the latter up to 200 hours between charges, with support for multi-host connectivity up to four devices all at once (just click a button to switch between hosts).
The Pro Type, on the other hand, is a wireless mechanical full-layout keyboard that, the outfit claims, delivers an optimal balance of comfort and performance. On the comfort front, it gets fingerprint-resistant keycaps with soft-touch coating for a cushioned feel when typing, as well as a minimalist design that’s ideal for use inside workplaces. For performance, it gets orange mechanical switches for a lower noise level during typing, each of which is rated at up to 80 million keystrokes, as well as LED-backlit keys (white color only) for working in dim light and fully-programmable controls. The keyboard can pair with up to four different devices simultaneously.
Lastly, there’s the Pro Glide mousepad, which boasts high-density rubber foam construction for heavy cushioning, a textured micro-weave cloth surface for effortless swipes, and rubberized base with a grippy texture to keep it in place at all times. It comes in only size, though, measuring 14.2 x 10.8 inches.
The Razer Productivity Suite comes in a unified appearance that sees every component get a chic white finish with subtle gray highlights. Basically, it looks like the kind of accessories that belong in an office, with none of the excesses that come with the typical gaming peripherals. It’s available now, priced at $99.99 for the Pro Click, $139.99 for the Pro Type, and $9.99 for the Pro Glide.
