Thank you for these great reviews! I was considering buying the Naga and this has really helped.
Every single person I know who has owned a Naga has had it break on them.In fact, I was in a game recently and a guy started turning circles in place. "Sorry mates, mouse just broke.""Naga?""How'd you know?"Fortunately, Razer is pretty good about their replacement policy. The people I know who had broken Razers were able to get replacements either cross-shipped or just by e-mailing a photo of the broken Naga with the cord severed. Still, when I had to choose between a Naga Epic and a Logitech G700 a year ago, I ended up choosing the Logitech based primarily on build quality.If I had it to do over again, I'd probably choose the G700 again - it's been a solid performer, and it has more than enough buttons for my needs.But that's all anecdotal on my part - I'm sure there's a bunch of folks who have used a Naga for years with no problems whatsoever. It's just been bad experiences in my circle of friends and acquaintances.
When I don't need to use the side of my ring finger and my pinkie to reach those extra buttons, then I might give Razer the thumbs-up. Till then, it's a terrible mouse.- Leftie with small hands.
As much as I love my Naga it needs a serious redesign for people with smaller hands(eg female gamers). Unless you have huge hands the current design makes it nearly impossible for people with smaller hands to fully use the num pad without being some kind of contortionist. As for quality... well at least it still functions for the most part, but seeings how one button or another randomly likes to stop working unless I beat on it I don't see how long that's gonna remain. I think once it breaks I'll go back to my Logitech G5, It might not have as much in the way of DPI settings but at least I don't feel like my hand is gonna break when I try to push all the buttons.
I'm on my second Naga.The first one died, after a year and change. This one's starting to get a little flaky.I love the mouse, the feel is awesome, and the performance is spot on.The reliability? Not so much. Keep your receipt.
It's disappointing to hear a lot of you had problems with your mice :( I really like the Naga's design a lot and so far it's been perfect, so I couldn't review from that aspect. I did have one of my Razer keyboards break after a year and they sent me another free, so their customer service is pretty decent regarding that at least.
Thanks for the reviews. I've owned 3 Nagas. Bought it when it came out, and I have to replace it about once a year due to the double clicking bug. It's still a great mouse until that happens.I thought about getting the 2012 edition when this one starts acting up, but the few reviews on Newegg say the 10-12 row buttons on the side aren't working very well for them, so I've been holding off, and moving the Back/Forward to below the middle mouse wheel isn't much of an improvement in terms of a button that you can press on the fly. It's similar to the placement on the Naga Epic, and I definitely prefer the old Naga's buttons more.In regards to the blue posts, it's a bit of a shame they nipped the 'Engineers crafting Head Enchants' idea in the bud by doing this big blog post on the front page. I thought it would have been a great idea. :)
5.0 ready for ptr release. Lvl cap raised to 90. Time to review my launch date predictions!
OMG sarco*!@us lol. Funny. Also the White Camel seems leeet. Cheers
I really enjoy my Naga, I've had it for less than a year so no comment on the reliability issues. It makes everything super, super easy once you get used to the thumb buttons. The forward/back buttons are in a terrible place, I don't see how moving them below the mouse wheel will help. I do miss being able to adjust my dpi on the fly as I could with my Logitech.
I've been very happy with my Naga and can't imagine switching to a mouse with a lower usable button count (I don't count the forward/back buttons in that :-D ). I sure hope it doesn't turn out to be among the less durable ones that people have been talking about here (so far, so good). I don't remember when I got it, but probably about a year and a half now.I thought I had read somewhere that Razer was releasing a left-handed version, but I can't seem to find info on that now.
"You then Frost Bomb the rabbit (under the assumption that you are really scared of this rabbit for some reason)."That rabbit's dynamite!
I have the Razer Naga (blue glow) and I love how those buttons are put to the side of the left click instead of the mouse wheel. I like to see companies branch out for all playstyles which is why I like that product. I put my hand on my naga just now and pretended to click where the buttons on the new mouse were located (behind mouse wheel). I found my hands were too large and it was a very unnatural and uncomfortable motion to either strain my finger to flex that far back to my palm or remove my hand from the mouse. That being said ill be sticking to my old naga. Still waiting on the Big Hands version... =)Generally I have found products made by Turtle Beach to feel cheap and chincy as well as offering lackluster performance and design features that feel like they were meant to be broken. Why does that headset mic spin? Just another crummy plastic joint to break when you could buy a headset that replaced that entire apparatus with a headphone jack allowing you to spin the mic freely without cord damage and remove the mic if you only want headphones. Looks decent but for now I'll stick to my Alienware TactX Headphones
