Razer Naga 2012 Mouse
When it comes to computer mice there are a plethora of choices for us to choose from. And, some of these choices include anywhere from a standard 3 button optical mouse, to multiple button high tech laser mice, we can also choose from a variety of different from sizes small to large; and just about everything in between. While 90% of the mice that are available are geared towards gaming, we need to look at our mice to do more than just gaming. We need to consider a mouse that can adapt to a variety of different computing tasks quickly and effortlessly, while at the same time enhance our precision and dexterity. What’s the point in having a mouse that cannot make precision adjustments, also having a mouse that makes our hands go numb or cold after prolonged usage?
Razer is one of many top tier computer peripheral makers that has recently re-invented an old favorite MMO gaming mouse, the Naga. And we just so happen to be looking at this newly designed mouse from Razer over here at Legit Reviews. Now the only question we need to ask and answer is; “Does the Razer Naga 2012 Mouse have what it takes”? There is only one way to find out and that’s to plug this $71 mouse in, set up the software, and find out first-hand.
Razer 2012 Naga Mouse Specifications:
- 17 MMO-optimized buttons (including 12 button thumb grid)
- 3 interchangeable side panels
- Razer Synapse 2.0 enabled
- 5600dpi Razer Precision 3.5G Laser Sensor
- 1000Hz Ultrapolling/ 1ms response time
- 200 inches per second max tracking speed
- Zero-acoustic Ultraslick mouse feet
- Approximate Size : 116 mm / 4.57” (Length) x 70 mm / 2.75” (Width) x 46 mm / 1.81” (Height)
- Approximate Weight: 134 g / 0.30 lbs
Let’s give the specifications a quick look through before jumping right into the review of this mouse. The main things that stands out is the 17 programmable mouse buttons, having three inter-changeable sides to accommodate multitude of different hand holding styles, and finally the implementation of a new software called Synapse 2.0. The one thing that I do notice that is not included on this mouse that we have seen with previous mice from Razer is the onboard memory; which, kind of struck me as to being rather odd. Well enough of the horse play let’s get down to business shall we.
