Razer Pro Click Mini: Smaller Pro Click should compete with the MX Anywhere

Razer is updating its own Productivity Suite and introducing a smaller version of the Pro Click (test). The mouse is to be understood as a direct competitor to the Logitech MX Anywhere 3 (test) after the Pro Click targeted the MX Master 3 (test). In addition, the Pro Type is being updated.

Visually confusingly similar

While the Pro Click was to be understood as a direct opponent of the MX Master 3 in terms of its conception, it sometimes set different accents in terms of both design and functionality, the Pro Click Mini is similar to its obvious model down to the smallest detail. Even optically, Razer’s smaller Pro mouse can hardly be distinguished from the MX Anywhere 3: Both input devices share a flat, right-handed symmetrical chassis in white with silver and light gray accents. The button layout is also identical, and this time Razer’s mouse also features a detachable mouse wheel that debuted a few weeks earlier in the Basilisk V3 gaming mouse (test).

However, the two counterparties differ in terms of the specific implementation and further internal technology. The mouse wheel of the MX Anywhere 3 is magnetically mounted and can automatically switch between grid and free running mode, while Razer does not explicitly mention such a function. At least the wheel of the Basilisk V3 could do that – and both Razer models also have a four-way mouse wheel, which the MX Anywhere 3 does not offer. The Pro Click Mini is also ahead of this in terms of sensor technology: On the one hand, the PixArt sensor – probably the last PAW-3319 used in the DeathAdder V2 X HyperSpeed ​​- offers higher values ​​for resolution, acceleration and speed, on the other hand, the Reduce latency with 2.4 GHz radio to 1 ms at 1,000 Hertz. Logitech’s MX models are still limited to around 125 Hertz with only Bluetooth.

    However, it must be noted that the Pro Click has an optical LED sensor, while Logitech’s Darkfield in the MX Anywhere 3 relies on laser scanning – the Logitech model therefore works much better on reflective or glass surfaces. There is also a significant difference in the power supply. Razer’s mouse offers space for up to two AA batteries, while the competition uses a proprietary battery. The MX Anywhere 3 weighs around 99 grams, while the Pro Click weighs either 88 or 111 grams – depending on whether one or two batteries are used. The running time in 2.4 GHz operation at 1,000 Hertz is around 465 hours in fully equipped operation, while in Bluetooth mode up to over 700 hours are possible.

    One of the greatest strengths of the Logitech mouse can be found in the software: With Logitech Flow (test), the input device can be used as an interface between several systems. Razer’s mouse offers coupling with up to four computers at the same time (three via Bluetooth and another via 2.4 GHz wireless adapter), but the rest of the software functionality is limited to the usual mouse functions.

    Mouse and keyboard available now

    According to Razer, the Pro Click Mini is now available at a recommended retail price of around 90 euros. The MX Anywhere 3 costs around 80 euros according to the RRP; In the price comparison, the input device is listed for around 62 euros. Aside from the new mouse, Razer has introduced a matching XXL mouse pad and a modified keyboard: In contrast to the well-known Pro Type, the Pro Type Ultra uses linear instead of tactile switches and comes with a wrist rest ex works. The recommended retail price is around 170 euros. According to Razer, both new input devices should be particularly quiet and therefore suitable for offices.
