The Razer Pro Click Mini is a small office mouse that can be taken anywhere. Despite its size, it has many useful features to work efficiently.
Razer's gaming mice have been countless, but the manufacturer has been trying to move towards the office market for some time. While it only offers one model of this type of mouse, the Pro Click Mini now completes the range with the Pro Type Ultra keyboard that we have also just tested. Mini format indeed, but a relatively high price for this small mouse, which places it in the top of the basket for this type of model. In any case, it offers interesting features that we detail here.
When you see the Pro Click Mini from Razer, it's hard not to think of the MX Anywhere 3 from the competitor Logitech. The design is quite similar, but it's a guarantee of quality and the finishing touches are well done. Most of the mouse is made of a slightly rough white plastic, but there are many differentiated elements that bring a certain cachet: non-slip coating, metallic edging and shiny white or silver button.
If this model is theoretically ambidextrous, it is rather reserved for right-handers in practice since the secondary buttons are only present on the left side. They are quite stable and reactive. On the other hand, they are noisy, unlike the main clicks. It's a pity, because this is one of the particularities of this model: its left and right clicks are silent and do not produce the usual noise of mice. This is a nice feature, especially in a work environment or to avoid disturbing your neighbors at home or on the train.
On both sides, a grey embossed coating prevents fingers from slipping and gives the Pro Click Mini a good grip. And "mini" means small: with 100.2 x 62.7 x 34.2 mm, it can be taken anywhere and used even on a small surface. The major disadvantage is to be found on the side of big hands. It is indeed difficult to envisage a daily use in this case and you will have to limit yourself to a finger tip grip.
This small size does not make it a lightweight. With its two AA batteries, the mouse weighs 111 g, a heavy weight usually reserved for much larger office models. However, this weight can be reduced to 88g by removing one of the batteries. This is another feature of the mouse, which can be operated with either one or two batteries. Of course, the autonomy will be strongly affected, but this provides a welcome form of versatility for those who prefer to be lighter. With two batteries, the autonomy is announced at about 725 h in Bluetooth use and 465 h with the 2.4 GHz dongle.
The Pro Click Mini can indeed be connected via these two methods, a low-latency home-made Hyperspeed radio receiver being stored under the shell. The latter is of little use in office use, except for switching between devices using the Bluetooth/radio connectivity switch on the bottom of the mouse. In Bluetooth, the mouse can be connected to four different devices, but there's no question of a smooth transition using a dedicated button - you'll have to do this manually. Under the mouse, next to the sensor, there is another button that simply starts the Bluetooth detection, as well as PTFE pads that ensure optimal gliding on a carpet.
Finally, the scroll wheel is very complete. Adorned with a non-slip coating, it is notched or can be disengaged using the white button located just above for smooth scrolling. However, this button seems to us of a more doubtful quality than the rest, a small spot on a well finished product. The scrolling is not as advanced and smooth as on the MagSpeed wheel of the MX Anywhere 3 or the HyperScroll Wheel of the Razer Basilisk V3. The wheel does have horizontal scrolling, which is useful for office use.
As with all its 5G sensors, Razer has partnered with PixArt, which can handle accelerations of 35 g and the sensitivity can be set from 200 to 12,000 dpi, which is more than enough. There is no dedicated button here and you have to go through the Razer Synapse software for the settings. The polling rate with the PC goes up to 1000 Hz, a fast value found on many gaming mice, but the interest is quite limited for office work. We were able to use the mouse on various surfaces (carpet, fabric, wood) without any problems, but glass is not a good choice.
The precision of the sensor, the adjustable sensitivity and the high polling rate make this mouse quite usable in video games when on the move or for troubleshooting.
The Razer Synapse configuration software
Common to all Razer peripherals, the Synapse software allows you to set up the mouse and assign different functions to its buttons. Here, there is no RGB backlight or advanced settings like on gaming models; you can only modify the sensitivity of the sensor (in dpi or ppp), the polling rate and the time after which the mouse goes to sleep.
For its first mobile office mouse, Razer delivers a quality model. Refined design, extensive functionality, silent clicks, full scroll wheel, connection to multiple devices: this Pro Click Mini is an excellent work companion. Big hands, however, will have a hard time adapting to it, unless you use it only occasionally. Its technical features make it also suitable for video games, even though this is obviously not its primary use.
