Razer’s new office peripherals are actually a great fit for streamers

Razer is a company known for its flashy RGB-lit peripherals aimed at gamers,

but it’s been turning to quieter options lately. Razer’s performance range is a lineup of solids, whites, and grays designed to be a little less obnoxious than usual. It includes the Razer Pro Click Mini Wireless Mouse, the Razer Pro Type Ultra Keyboard, and the Razer Pro Glide XXL Desk Mat. They boast a more discrete setting aimed at low visual and audio impact. Although, as I found while using these products for review, it can be beneficial not only for office workers, which this range is aimed at but also for streamers.

First, is the Razer Pro Click Mini, a very small mouse. This made me wary at first. I generally find these miniature mice rather uncomfortable and generally just not very responsive. I expected to be disappointed and not want to use it quickly, but instead, I really really like this little thing. Somehow the small size doesn’t feel cramped in my hands like it has with other mice before. The way the back flexes in my hand and the soft textured sides make for a really comfortable use that I was even able to use for long gaming sessions without issue.

This tiny wireless mouse has two programmable buttons on the left side

conveniently located for your right thumb. I always like to assign one of these for melee attacks in first-person shooters, but given the size of the mouse, I’m still a bit concerned. However, I’ve been able to use it reliably without hitting the wrong button, and they also work well for general back and forth when browsing the web. It also has a very nice scroll wheel that can be toggled between free spin and more jagged movements.

But the real surprise is the mouse buttons themselves.

Razer advertised this as a quiet mouse, but I really didn’t expect that – the sound is minimal when pressing the left and right mouse buttons. It’s almost hard to tell if you’re hearing it or just feeling it through your fingers. It’s nice and soft, but to be honest, a little weird. I keep giving it to my friends and telling them to click it and still haven’t gotten a sigh in return. This is very different from your usual gaming rate and I think personal preference will play a big role, but I really like these soft clicks.

Overall, this is a great little mouse that surprised me, and I hope Razer brings this technology to their more powerful gaming lineup for those nice soft clicks.

The keyboard in this lineup is the star of the show. This is a full-size mechanical keyboard with a ten-key pad and various volume and playback keys. Although it does feel a little weird when paired with a tiny but great mouse.

The Razer Pro Type Ultra keyboard features a beautiful white design that looks even more professional in real life. The plating on the front looks like a layer of matte white silver metal which looks really stylish. All of the floating white backlit keys look high-tech yet organized. Even the Razer logo above the arrow keys is rather understated. It’s probably the least awkward-looking keyboard I’ve ever owned, but I can’t help but wish it had customizable RGB backlighting instead of just white backlighting. So I can spoil the whole experience. Specifications Razer Pro Type Ultra

The keys are Razer’s own yellow mechanical linear switches, designed to be quiet yet responsive. They are similar in performance to Cherry MX Speed ​​switches and are well suited for fast typing and gaming. They are linear and appear very smooth. The actuation doesn’t require much pressure and I can type and play fairly easily and quickly. The only thing I do not quite understand is that they are not so quiet. Sure, they’re not as loud and clicky as some mechanical keyboards, but they’re not silent. There is a muted tone to the audio and I understand what the intent is, but I was expecting a bit more considering how good mouse clicks can be. Ultimately, it barely feels quieter than my HyperX Red Linear keyboard, but it cuts out some of the high frequencies, making the sound less harsh and annoying overall.

The latest in the line is a table mat dedicated to the rest of the range. True to its name, the Pro Glide XXL is a clunky guy when it comes to the surface area. The XXL size is great for organizing your workspace but may be too big for many workspaces. It easily accommodates both the long Razer Pro Type Ultra and Pro Click Mini keyboards with plenty of room and provides a comfortable surface to move the mouse around. Ultimately, it seems unnecessary. The mouse works great on my desk without a pad, and the light gray tone, which looks great with the rest of the set, gets dirty too well. I could see it looks great in the right setting, but it looks a lot like an extra option.

Ultimately, this seems like a great setup for office workers and streamers alike.

The Pro Click Mini is the best tiny mouse I’ve ever used and has the quietest clicks to cut down on excessive noise. While the Razer Pro Type Ultra’s keyboard isn’t as good at reducing audio, it’s still quiet for a mechanical keyboard, making it a great choice for streamers who just can’t let go of their clicking action. It also looks and feels amazingly stylish, I keep thinking it’s too good for my home. And while I can’t say I definitely recommend the Pro Glide XXL mouse pad, with its tendency to get dirty, it probably helps to dampen the sound a bit, unlike a hard desktop. Also, if you want a finished look and can keep it clean, this will really tie the set together.
