Most people associate Razer with lime green and gaming. When Razer first arrived on the scene, they completely upended the gaming peripheral market with products that were innovative, refreshing, and frankly, cool. They’ve since evolved to a massive company with enough chops and reputation to challenge the largest global brands.
With so many people working from home, the idea of a simple keyboard and mouse package from Razer makes total sense. Not everyone needs crazy gaming features, but most would appreciate a high quality keyboard accompanying a comfortable and ergonomic mouse. That’s where Razer’s newest kit comes in, dubbed the “Razer Productivity Suite”. We haven’t put our hands on this for review, but judging by the keyboard layout and mouse shape, I can imagine it being a great package. So good it’s worth sharing the news with out readers. Check out the press release below!
IRVINE, Calif. – Razer™ today announced the next generation in workplace productivity with the Razer Productivity Suite. The new Pro Click mouse, designed in collaboration with Humanscale, a global leader in workplace ergonomics, the Pro Type keyboard and Pro Glide surface form a suite of exceptionally comfortable, durable and high-performance peripherals perfectly styled for any work environment.
The Razer Productivity Suite has been created to enhance workflow and reduce fatigue by drawing on Razer’s years of experience in creating high-performance gaming peripherals, then transferring that expertise to the workplace. With superior engineering and cutting-edge technology, reliability and durability are vastly improved, as well as long-term comfort thanks to the collaboration with ergonomic experts, Humanscale. With a chic white finish and subtle gray highlights, the Razer Productivity Suite enhances the look of any workspace and delivers the speed, precision and durability demanded by the modern worker.
“The vast majority of office peripherals are based on one-size-fits-all designs and technology, becoming a source of frustration to the user and hinderance in the working day,” said Alvin Cheung, Senior Vice President of Razer’s Peripherals Business Unit. “I am incredibly proud of the Razer Productivity Suite that we are unveiling today alongside our partner, Humanscale, to address these issues. We firmly believe that our combined expertise and innovation will take workplace productivity to the next level.”
The stylish looks of the Razer Productivity Suite conceal the high-quality build and componentry used to make a range of very durable products. With the buttons on the Pro Click mouse rated for up to 50 million cycles, and the switches on the Pro Type keyboard rated for up to 80 million cycles, the Razer Productivity Suite has some of the highest rated switches to be found on dedicated office products. This greater durability and longevity results in higher productivity for the lifespan of the product when compared to what is in the market today.
Razer Pro Click
Created in partnership with Humanscale, the world’s leading designer and manufacturer of ergonomic products that improve the health and comfort of work life, the Razer Pro Click mouse was specifically designed to minimize the health risks associated with long-term mousing, including Tendonitis and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. The mouse is ergonomically contoured to position the user’s wrist at a neutral 30-degree angle, therefore preventing discomfort and injuries associated with wrist pronation.
Furthermore, the Razer Pro Click is designed to meet the ideal comfort zones for small and large hands, and incorporates extended palm, thumb, and pinky supports to fully support the entire hand, minimizing contact stress with the desk and alleviating hand and arm strain. The result is an extremely comfortable mouse that reduces fatigue and the number of errors, ultimately delivering on Razer’s high precision and performance promise.
“Our goal is to make work life healthier and more comfortable,” said Allan Escoto, Global Product Director, Monitor Arms & Technology Solutions at Humanscale. “This collaboration with Razer gave us the opportunity to create an advanced design that reflects the nuances of ergonomics based on our extensive experience. As such, the Razer Pro Click wireless mouse leverages ergonomics for a healthier and more accurate computing experience.”
With Razer’s Advanced 5G Optical Sensor, multi-host Bluetooth connectivity and an extended battery life in excess of 400 hours, the Pro Click mouse is the ideal pointing device for the desk worker needing accuracy and reliability all the time.
