Step up your WFH productivity game with Razer

A full suite of peripherals for both work and play



Some businesses these days are starting to transition to a more hybrid setup for work. If working from home for almost two years isn’t your style, this is the perfect opportunity to try something new. However, if you’re extra careful, you can also take this opportunity to try something different to elevate your productivity space. Of course, this opportunity comes courtesy of… Razer?

Normally, Razer is associated with producing some of the best gaming peripherals out there. From their multi-awarded gaming keyboards and mice to monitors, they are one of the premiere brands trusted by professionals. This time around, they’re targeting a different kind of professional; one that grinds through a 9-5 workload.

For the type of professional who works hard and plays harder, Razer introduces its Productivity Suite of peripherals. Here’s a more detailed look into this suite designed for the grind, whether it’s for working overtime or playing in overtime.

Build your space with the Razer Pro Glide Mousepad

It may not be much, but the Razer Pro Glide Mousepad is definitely something worth considering when building/upgrading any work setup. To be fair, it is just a simple mouse pad designed for better and more accurate tracking from your mouse. However, it also provides a bit of an added benefit depending on the size you get.

See, the Razer Pro Glide Mousepad comes in either Medium or XXL and provides the same experience regardless of the mouse you have. The XXL variant covers up to 37 inches of surfaces, which is pretty decent for those with large work spaces. Apart from more accurate tracking for your mouse, a large enough mouse pad also protects surfaces from possible scratches from relatively sharp peripherals.

Another good thing about this mouse pad is that it has an anti-slip rubber base that keeps it in place all the time. In essence, you don’t have to worry about it slipping off your table when you slide your keyboard or mouse too hard towards any direction. Also, it only comes in a gray color that fits a minimalist gray-white setup quite well. 

Craft your response smoothly with the Razer Pro Type Ultra

Razer has had no shortage in quality keyboards over the years, and for the most part, these were made with the gamer’s interest in mind. However, they wanted to step it up a bit and bring the same quality of their gaming keyboards to the working professional. This is what the Razer Pro Type Ultra is all about!

The Razer Pro Type Ultra is a full-size mechanical keyboard built with silent switches to give you a tactile typing experience. Whenever you’re doing work while on a call, for example, you don’t have to worry about people hearing your clicky keyboard as much. Also, these switches make the keys quite durable as it can last for more than 80 million clicks. 

Now, this keyboard supports both wired (via a USB-A to USB-C cable) and wireless (via Bluetooth or a 2.4Ghz USB-A dongle) connectivity. If you’re more of an on-the-go worker, this is a nifty feature for a full-size keyboard to have. Also, it comes with a soft wrist rest to maximize comfort while you’re typing away.

Take action instantly with the Razer Pro Click Mini

When it comes to mice, Razer also excels in this department and they have the awards to back it up. Naturally, the Razer Pro Click Mini would come with the same level of quality suitable for the working professional at any level. Much like the Pro Type Ultra, the Pro Click Mini is silent and responsive in its approach.

Another feature the Pro Click Mini shares with the Pro Type Ultra is its wireless connectivity options. Both peripherals support Bluetooth and dongle connections — also through a USB-A dongle — and last long despite using AA batteries. Also, the Pro Click Mini only requires one AA battery instead of two to run at its full capacity. At least, you can save the other battery for late work hours once you’ve exhausted the other one.

Of course, this is one of the more portable peripherals in the suite due to its weight and size. Inside the package, it comes with a pouch to house it when you’re on-the-go for work. Much like their gaming mice, Razer even added programmable buttons for you to assign specific functions.

ASUS’ Evangelion-themed motherboard has a glaring typo

Spot the difference



When a company announces a partnership with a popular franchise, you can usually expect an awesome way to rep your favorite fandom. However, there are rare occasions when a limited-edition tie-in comes to market without passing through a quick look over. ASUS, reveling in its Neon Genesis Evangelion, has released a new motherboard with a glaring typo.

Back in September, ASUS released the ROG Maximus Z790 Hero EVA-02 Edition motherboard in the United States. As the name suggests, the limited-edition motherboard touts a design inspired by the eponymous EVA-02 piloted by Asuka Langley Soryu. Though the design is eye-catching by itself, looking at the text surrounding the motherboard might illicit more than just wows.

Near the edge of the cover, the motherboard has text that’s supposed to say “Evangelion Production Model-02.” However, the units out in the market today say “Evangenlion,” sporting the extra “n” in the middle. The typo was spotted through unboxing videos (via Twitter/X).

Strangely, ASUS is showcasing both versions of the motherboard on its website. The main landing page for the anime partnership features the motherboard with the correct spelling. However, the page specific to the limited-edition motherboard features a graphic with the typo.

Since the motherboard with the typo has the correctly spelled “Evangelion” elsewhere on the design, the typo clearly was not intended. It’s still odd that it went to market (and the website) with the typo.

Critically, the motherboard costs US$ 700, around US$ 90 more than the regular motherboard without the special design. It’s quite pricey for a typo.

For ASUS’s part, the company is extending the warranty by a year for those who already bought the model. Plus, it is implementing a replacement program for those who want a corrected design.
