Summary

Razer Pro Type uses Razer's tactile Orange switches. The keys require a slightly stronger press but make for a comfortable typing experience and fewer typos than you'd get on a gaming-first keyboard. The Pro Type can connect to four devices simultaneously, one via the wireless USB receiver, and three over Bluetooth.

The Razer Pro Type is excellent for gaming. The Razer Orange switches are easy to actuate, and their short pre-travel distance provides incredible responsiveness. Every key is programmable, but sadly, there aren't any dedicated macro keys for MMO games. Due to its Bluetooth support, it can connect to most mobile devices.

Reviewers from techradar have found the following[***]:
The Razer Pro Type is part of Razer's latest productivity collection of peripherals aimed at the office and remote worker. It features a softer off-white and silver color scheme, backed up by white LED lighting underneath the keys. The keys themselves are a dream to type on and the mechanical clicks are more muted than the typical mechanical keyboard. The keyboard's biggest problem is its wireless connectivity.
