Razer's productivity push is already making a lot of sense. The Razer Pro Click Mini really impressed me and the Razer Pro Type Ultra keyboard is perfect for the office. It features relatively silent mechanical keys, Bluetooth or 2.4GHz dongle connectivity, and comes with a soft comfortable wrist rest.

Unlike most of the keyboards that we've reviewed, the Pro Type Ultra is a full-sized keyboard with a numpad. That makes it perfect for those who work with a lot of numbers using spreadsheets. I also appreciate the size, as it's been a long while since I've used one. I normally work fine with a tenkeyless. Looks-wise, the laptop features a standard suite of white ABS plastic keycaps, which goes well with the silver base. The backlights also help to illuminate the base, giving it a nice glowy reflection.
The dual kickstand comes with two elevation modes, or you can lie it flat. Furthermore, there's a compartment underneath for storing the dongle. The dongle also allows the Pro Click Mini to connect with it, so you can use the mouse and keyboard with just one port. You will need to do this with Razer's Synapse software. When using Bluetooth, the Pro Type Ultra will remember up to three devices. You can toggle between devices by hitting the Fn+1, 2, or 3 keys.
Battery life is great, up to 207 hours on 2.4GHz, and 214 hours on Bluetooth. That should easily get you through a week and more without charging. You can also use the keyboard while it's charging. The typing experience is great. While it took me a while to get used to the muted sounding clicks, I have no complaints about the actuation force of the Razer Yellow switches. They are the lightest type, after all. The included wrist rest also makes it super comfortable to type for long periods of time.
Retailing at S$249, the Razer Pro Type Ultra keyboard isn't the cheapest around. But it's a full-sized keyboard with wireless features and relatively quiet mechanical switches that your colleagues will appreciate. Get it from Razer, Lazada, or Shopee.
