Today, Razer is stepping into a market segment we don't typically see from the company. Razer has a new trio of PC peripherals launching today, but rather than being aimed at gamers, these are squarely aimed at productivity and getting work done.
The Razer Productivity Suite aims to enhance workflow and reduce fatigue, starting with the new Pro Click mouse, which was designed in collaboration with Humanscale. For those who don't know, Humanscale is a global leader in workplace ergonomics. Joining the Pro Click mouse is the Pro Glide surface and the Pro Type keyboard. The Razer Productivity also implements some design flair, standing out from the typical ‘one-size-fits-all' designs you typically see in office products.
The Razer Pro Click Mouse is designed to minimise any health risks associated with long-term usage, like tendonitis and carpal tunnel syndrome. It is rated for up to 50 million clicks and comes with Razer's Advanced 5G Optical Sensor. Here are the full specs:
- Ergonomic Form Factor
- Razer 5G Advanced Optical Sensor
- Durability for up to 50 million clicks
- Multi Host Connectivity for up to 4 devices
- 8 Programmable buttons
- Extended battery life
Next up is the Razer Pro Type mechanical keyboard, which is designed to keep both typing errors and fatigue to a minimum. There is a soft-touch coating around the keyboard and under the key caps, you will find Razer's own Orange mechanical switches for quiet, tactile keystrokes. Here is the spec sheet for the Razer Pro Type:
- Ergonomic Design with soft-touch Coating
- Razer orange mechanical switches
- Durability for up to 80 million keystrokes
- Bluetooth and Wireless connectivity for up to 4 devices
- Fully Programmable keys with macro recording
- White LED backlit keys
Finally, there is also the Razer Pro Glide surface, which matches the colour scheme of both the mouse and keyboard to keep your desk setup looking good. This is a textured, micro-weave cloth surface with high density foam backing measuring in at 360x275x3mm.
The Razer Pro Click will be available for £99.99/$99.99/€109.99. The Razer Pro Type will be available for £139.99/$139.99/€149.99. Finally, the Razer Pro Glide will be available for £9.99/$9.99/€11.99.
KitGuru Says: Razer is well known for its gaming peripherals, so it will be interesting to see if it can also become well known in the productivity/office market too. What do you all think of the Razer Productivity Suite of peripherals?
