Tom's Guide Verdict

The Razer Pro Click Mini is smaller than its predecessor, and adds a new infinite scrolling mode, great for skimming through long pages. Featuring silent clicks and an excellent gliding experience, it’s the ideal mouse for the office. However, its Windows-only companion software could put macOS users off, and its non-ergonomic design might have you considering other options.

Over the years, Razer has launched some incredible mice that have garnered Tom’s Guide’s praises, featuring in many of our buying guides, such as the best mouse and the best gaming mouse. But of course, the Singaporean-American manufacturer doesn’t focus only on gaming mice. It also makes mice specifically for productivity, and the Razer Pro Click Mini is one such device.

Built for the office, the Pro Click Mini is a practical little mouse that won’t occupy much space in your backpack, so you can easily take it on your commute. It features silent mechanical switches so left- and right-clicks don’t make any sound, and this way, you don’t disturb your office mates. Its scroll wheel also has a handy infinite scrolling setting to scroll through long pages quickly, and at the flick of a switch, it can turn into a tactile scroll wheel. However, the mouse does have a few shortcomings which are worth considering before investing in one.

For the full breakdown, read our Razer Pro Click Mini review.

  • Who is it for? For office-goers who want a portable mouse that prioritizes a productive yet silent work environment.
  • How much does it cost? The Razer Pro Click Mini is available for $79 / £79.

Razer Pro Click Mini review: The ups

The Razer Pro Click Mini is an excellent mouse for productivity if your job revolves around using a laptop, and its price is unbeatable for what it offers.

Premium quality and design

Smaller than its big brother, the Razer Pro Click, the Pro Click Mini is small and fits perfectly in the palm of your hand. It measures 4.25 x 2.47 x 1.35 inches, and the mouse was just the right size for me (I have medium-sized hands). It also feels premium to touch and hold. While the mouse’s size makes it highly portable, it does weigh in at 3.91 ounces (with 2x AA batteries), so it’s slightly heavy. I’ve reviewed lightweight gaming mice — the Glorious Model O 2 and the Logitech G Pro X Superlight 2 — and I’ve come to realize that I prefer a heavier mouse. Whether you view its weight as a pro or a con would entirely depend on your preferences.

The mouse features 7 buttons: left- and right-click buttons, a scroll wheel, two thumb buttons on the left side, a rocker switch to adjust the scroll wheel, and a button on the underside to quickly switch between devices. It’s an ambidextrous mouse but it might take some getting used to for left-handed folks. Equipped with 4 PTFE feet, the mouse effortlessly glides across various surfaces, such as wood, glass and plastic.

If you’re familiar with Razer’s products, you’d likely think the Pro Click Mini was made by a totally different brand. Unlike its gaming mice — often black and green — the Pro Click Mini is enclosed in a plastic case with a pearl white base and secondary gray coloring. It looks like a regular mouse. Razer didn’t add any RGB lighting to it, either. That’s for the best because, as a productivity mouse, you aren’t looking for fancy effects and don’t want it to be distracting.

Silent clicking

If you’re clicking on the Razer Pro Click Mini, it’s unlikely someone else in the office will hear it, so being disturbed is a remote possibility. The mouse uses silent mechanical switches to ensure a noise-free environment. Now the only noise emitting from my desk is the clickity clackity of whatever mechanical keyboard I’m testing.

Versatile scroll wheel

Like I said, the Razer Pro Click Mini is a great mouse for productivity. Its lovely textured scroll wheel features an infinite scroll function — called free-spin mode — which was missing from the Pro Click. A rocker switch located between the left- and right-click buttons allows you to quickly switch between free-spin mode and tactile mode. I really enjoyed the freedom to swap between the two, depending on the app I was using. For instance, the free-spin mode was handy when dealing with a long spreadsheet. I could quickly scroll from the top to the bottom, and this was the case with Slack as well. Catching up on conversations I’ve missed felt really easy.

If you switch to the tactile mode, you’ll experience more resistance and it’ll be like using any other mouse. Pressing down on the scroll wheel doesn't take a lot of force but just about enough so that you don’t misclick. According to Razer, the scroll wheel’s sensitivity can be adjusted using the Synapse 3 software. I say “according to Razer” because the software is, sadly, for Windows only (more on that later).

Wireless-only connectivity

The Razer Pro Click Mini, unlike its predecessor, doesn’t feature a USB port. Instead, the mouse can be connected to your laptop wirelessly, either via Bluetooth or the accompanying 2.4GHz HyperSpeed wireless dongle. I much prefer wireless tech so not having a wired connection didn’t make a difference to me. I primarily used it over Bluetooth and experienced no lag or hiccups. The mouse was quick to respond, and it took less than a second to wake up after having been inactive. You can also connect up to four devices and switch between them quickly thanks to the button on its underside.

The Pro Click Mini also comes with a nifty compartment to stash the dongle in, and I love that. I don’t enjoy mice that make you carry the dongle separately which you could easily lose. Not the Pro Click Mini. If you remove the snap-on faceplate, you’ll see a tiny slot to put the dongle in, between the 2 batteries.

Long battery life

Because it doesn’t have a USB port, the Razer Pro Click Mini operates on AA alkaline batteries. With two batteries in, the mouse weighs 3.91oz, which might be too heavy for some users. Good news is that the mouse can run on a single battery too, and weighs 3.1oz. The battery life is something to behold too. Razer claims that, with both batteries, the Pro Click Mini can last a whopping 725 hours on Bluetooth, and 465 hours on 2.4GHz wireless. In comparison, these claims are similar to the $69 Razer Orochi V2 gaming mouse (950 hours on Bluetooth, 425 hours on 2.4GHz wireless).

While I couldn’t test these claims in their entirety, the Pro Click Mini did dip to only 99% after about 32 hours of office-only use.

Razer Pro Click Mini review: The downs

While it may look like there isn't much to fault in the Razer Pro Click Mini, my three biggest gripes with it have left me feeling shortchanged.

Not ergonomic

If you’re like me and are considering buying this mouse for office use only, you might be a little concerned with the Razer Pro Click Mini’s ergonomics. The mouse features an ambidextrous design and is geared towards office productivity, but you might want to reconsider if you’re prone to wrist pain. Ergonomic mice prioritize comfort while offering a productive user experience. If you’re prone to wrist pain but still want a mouse for office use, check out the Logitech MX Vertical ($100) or the Logitech Lift ($69).

Scroll wheel can be noisy

While I appreciate the duality of the Razer Pro Click Mini’s scroll wheel, I’m disappointed that it can be a little noisy. When in tactile scrolling mode, I noticed that the scroll wheel squeaked every few seconds. This isn’t a big issue in the grand scheme of things, but this shouldn’t have been an issue in the first place for a mouse that prioritizes a silent work environment. This wasn’t great for my productivity either, as the squeaks kept distracting me and breaking my train of thought. It’s a mouse, yes, but does it have to sound like a real mouse?

Windows-only companion software

As aforementioned, the Razer Pro Click Mini can’t be customized if you are a macOS user. Razer's Synapse 3 software is available on Windows only. If you do own a PC, you can use it to adjust the Pro Click Mini’s DPI and sensitivity for its four-way tilt-click scroll wheel, reprogram its buttons, and more. Both my work and personal laptops are MacBooks, so not being able to use Synapse 3 on either left me feeling unsatisfied, removing the possibility of any customization.

If you’re looking for an excellent mouse for productivity with companion software for macOS, consider the Logitech MX Master 3 ($99) instead, although you may have to dish out a few extra bucks.

Razer Pro Click Mini review: Verdict

As far as mice designed for productivity go, the Razer Pro Click Mini is a super choice. It’s comfortable to use if you have small- or medium-sized hands, and it won’t take up too much space in your backpack. The silent mechanical switches make it ideal to use in an office space so you won’t disturb anyone else, and the free-spin scrolling mode is a lovely touch. While it’s a great investment at its retail price of $79 / £79, we’ve seen it drop to as low as $50 / £36 at Amazon, so keep an eye out for discounts. You can also take a look at our Razer promo codes.

However, macOS users might be annoyed by the fact that its companion software, Synapse 3, is compatible with Windows only, which means you won’t be able to customize the mouse to your liking. Also, the scroll wheel has a tendency to squeak, disrupting the silence Razer so desperately wants to maintain. It’s also not designed ergonomically so using it for long hours could lead to wrist pain. This can be negated by ergonomic mice, such as the Logitech MX Vertical or the Logitech Lift.

That being said, the Pro Click Mini definitely deserves a spot amongst the best mice, so if you’re looking for a mouse geared towards productivity, your search ends here.
