The Razer Naga gaming mouse is a solid tool if you play games on your Windows PC that have lots of controls. It is a must for games such as World of World craft, League of Legends, and MMORPG titles, with its 19 customizable buttons and a very nice feel. For someone who doesn’t like to move their hands a lot during intense gaming, it’s great to have the numbers at the tips of your fingers!
There are three different variations of the Naga mouse, but regardless of model, all of the features on the mouse are controlled by an application called Razer Synapse. This app lets you control what color your backlight ends up being (only on the Chroma modal), the customizable buttons and what they correspond to on the keyboard, and whether your mouse lights up at all, useful for late night gaming sessions! I have found that the Razer gamer mouse is very reliable, nice, and easy to work with.
The first of the three options is the regular Razer Naga (picture below). This has 19 different customizable keys. It features backlit keys, scroll wheel, and Razer logo. This mouse is $79.99. I’m sure you’re thinking “Why in the world would I buy an $80 wired mouse for a game I can play with a $20 dollar mouse from BestBuy?” Well, it’s a great mouse, but if you’re not using all the custom buttons, it’s just a splurge, a nice “rig.”
Another option is the Epic Chroma Naga. That means that when the backlit color of the mouse is on, you can change it to any color of the rainbow, and it has the ability to be wired OR wireless. This feature costs you an extra $50.00. When it’s wireless, there is a charging stand that just takes a regular micro-USB connection to power it. Fully charged, it should last about 20 hours of continuous gaming before it runs out of battery. It is a very nice mouse, but a bit smaller in the palm than the regular Razer Naga. If you have large hands I would suggest you go to a store in person and try both the Naga and the Chroma Models before you decide which will work better for you in the long term.
Last is the Razer Naga Hex. It is the same price as the regular Razer Naga but instead of 12 buttons, it only has six. Not a problem, turns out this is ideal for games such as Call of Duty, Arma 3, and other FPS (first person shooter) games. 6 buttons would be enough to have all the weapon changing keys, the duck movement and the sprint button programmed and ready to go when you’re in an intense firefight or battle.
All of the features on these mice are controlled by an application called Razer Synapse 2.0, as I mentioned earlier. This app lets you control what backlight color, program buttons, etc, as you can see:
I have had success after success with Razer products in the games I play. I would strongly suggest you look into them if you’re a serious gamer. They can be pretty pricy but the products will always impress and you’ll kick some butt, which is definitely important!
