Razer Naga 2014 Review

Introduction:

If you follow ChipLoco, you should be familiar with Razer and most of their products. We have reviewed a lot of Razer products released during the last couple of years. In these reviews, we have extensively tested their keyboards, mice and headphones and have found their products well-built and very well designed.

Razer has produced many great gaming peripherals during the last decade. One of the all-time greats is the Razer Naga gaming mouse. First released in 2009, it was one of the first MMO (aka Massively Multiplayer Online) mice and was a great success back then. It quickly became an essential part of every MMO player’s arsenal and was the weapon of choice for many professional MMO players. Razer did release a couple of upgraded versions of this mouse namely, Naga Motlen, Naga Epic and Nage Hex but none of them brought any major upgrades. Despite this Naga has consistently remained in the top selling MMO gaming mice and is considered as the world’s king of MMO gaming mouse.

Razer Naga 2014

In August earlier this year, Razer released a new upgraded version of Naga and claimed it to be more ergonomic than its predecessor. This got a lot of MMORPGs players excited and wondering. Luckily for them, we have been using this mouse since September and today we are here to report our findings. The new Razer Naga comes with considerable improvements over the old one both in terms of technology and ergonomics. Firstly, the 12 button thumb grid has been upgraded with mechanical keys. Secondly, the conventional scroll wheel is replaced by a tilt-click scroll wheel capable of going left and right too. Thirdly, the interchangeable side panel has been replaced with an all-new one-size-fits-all ergonomic form factor to ensure your hand fits snugly for maximum comfort. Lastly, there is an all new intuitive in-game MMO configurator that allows customizing each and every button right from the game via a non-intrusive overlay.
