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 a wireless mechanical "productivity" keyboard. It shares a lot of DNA with the standard Razer Huntsman, but with a few key tweaks. Razer's ditched the Chroma lighting, replacing it with a single-zone, white LED backlighting. It's our Editors' Choice for wireless keyboards.

The Razer Pro Type is a good wireless mechanical keyboard intended for productivity. The Razer Orange switches provide an excellent typing experience, with satisfying tactile feedback and incredible responsiveness. It isn't fatiguing to type on, but some people may need a wrist rest due to the keyboard's relatively high profile, and there isn't one included in the box.

Sentiment Score[*] 70%
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.

  • Attractive design
  • Easy to switch between devices
  • Long battery life
Cons[**]
  • Backlighting could be more subtle
  • Backlighting is counter-intuitive
