Hardware Review: Razer Naga 2014

The Razer Naga 2014 is the newest entry in the Razer series. It features a total of 19 individually programmable buttons as well as everything else you’ve come to expect from Razer. With its great build quality and design and unique features like the tilt click scroll wheel, the Naga 2014 is a definite winner.

The mouse features a comfortable, ergonomic design which fits the hand perfectly. There is also a left-handed version available which many other mice do not include. The Naga boasts an improved thumb grid with mechanical switches and a concave design, remedying many complaints users had from the previous incarnation of the mouse. One of my first impressions while using the Naga was its great build quality, weighing in at 135g or 0.3lbs the Naga feels solid in the hand, but light enough for those who tend to lift up their mouse when gaming.

Razer’s user-freindly Synapse 2.0 software lets users configure their device with options such as lighting, sensitivity and macros. The configuration is stored in the cloud and can be accessed from another PC or laptop that has the Syanpase software installed. This is a definite plus for users who travel to LAN tournaments or use switch between multiple PC’s.

The Naga features a 8,200dpi 4G laser sensor and 1,000Hz Ultrapolling which ensures the device has pinpiont acccuracy and does not suffer from input lag.

Razer had done a great job designing the Naga but there are still some areas of opportunity. Firstly, the Naga is still lacking any dedicated sensitivity or weight adjustment options. The number pad, although a big improvement over the previous version can still get in the way while browsing the web or doing other tasks. and I found it difficult to determine exactly which of the twelve buttons I was pressing. 

Overall, the Razer Naga 2014 was a huge improvement over its predessesor and one of, if not the best MMO gaming mice available. The Razer Naga is not for everyone, but if you’re dedicated MMO player who spends time setting up keybinds and macro’s you’ll absolutely love this mouse.

In short, The Razer Naga 2014 is one of the best MMO mice out there.
