Review Of The Razer Naga V2 Pro Mouse From A To Z
Razer’s Naga series keeps going with the Naga V2 Pro, a high-end, wireless MMO gaming mouse. Like the Razer Naga Pro, which came out before this one, this mouse is made for the right hand and has a modular design that lets you switch between three side panels with either 3, 6, or 12 buttons. Several performance improvements have been made to this version, such as a new sensor, a new generation of optical switches, and a longer battery life. Razer calls this version’s other feature a “hyperscroll pro wheel.” You can change how this scroll wheel works by changing some of its settings. Some of the things that can be changed are the smoothness or feel of the wheel, the number of steps in a full turn, and how the wheel works when you scroll at different speeds.
Even though it wasn’t made for work, the Razer Naga V2 Pro is a great mouse to use at work. It’s made very well and fits the right hand well, with a finger rest on the right side. It has side panels that can be switched out, so you can set up the buttons in a way that works best for you. You can program any of this mouse’s buttons with the software that comes with it, but the software only works with Windows. This mouse also has a scroll wheel that you can change by changing how it feels, how fast it scrolls, and how many steps there are in a full rotation.
This mouse looks almost exactly like the Razer Naga Pro from a few years ago. It is mostly made of matte black plastic, but there are some shiny black plastic parts near the scroll wheel. The Razer logo on the palm rest and the numbered legends on the 12-button side panel both have RGB lighting zones.
This mouse is well made, and the materials feel like they are of high quality. The body is made of solid plastic with a matte finish that feels good in the hand. The body doesn’t bend or creak when you put pressure on it, and the side panels, which can be switched out quickly, are held in place by magnets and don’t move around when you use it. The scroll wheel wobbles and rattles a little bit, but this is pretty common for mice with scroll wheels that can be tilted left or right, and it’s not very noticeable when you’re using it.
This mouse isn’t too hard to carry around, but it’s too big to fit into laptop bags or cases. The USB receiver can be kept out of the way in a space under the left side panel that can be taken off.
This mouse weighs a lot. The side panel with 12 buttons makes it the heaviest. Taking off the two-button side panel and the small puck on the bottom of the mouse makes it the lightest. This mouse is easy to use with your right hand. On the right side, you can rest either your ring or pinky finger. There is also a small grip on the right, and both the three-button and six-button panels have textured parts to make them easier to hold.
Overall, this mouse works well for a wide range of hand sizes. However, it is quite wide, so people with smaller hands may find it hard to use. Each hot-swappable side panel has well-placed buttons that are easy to reach. But if you have very small or very large hands, you might find it hard to reach some of the side buttons.
The battery life for this mouse is said to be up to 150 hours with the HyperSpeed Wireless USB receiver and up to 300 hours with Bluetooth. This mouse can be charged wirelessly, but you’ll need to buy a separate Qi-certified “Razer Wireless Charging Puck” to use it. This puck will replace the puck cover on the bottom of the mouse. Check out the Razer Naga V2 HyperSpeed if you want a similar wireless mouse that runs on AA batteries instead of USB.
You can set up all of the buttons on this mouse, including the scroll tilts to the left and right. You can also choose to assign a “Hypershift” button, which lets you program a second layer of inputs. The default 12-button side panel is used to figure out the total number of side buttons and programmable inputs. Razer Gen-3 optical switches are used in both the left and right click buttons.
Overall, the sensor latency of this mouse is very good. But there is a bit more delay before the mouse starts moving than with the Razer Naga Pro or other recent Razer products that use the same sensor, like the Razer Basilisk V3 Pro. This could be because of settings that save power, or it could be something that Razer changes in upcoming firmware updates. After making sure that all power-saving settings in the software were turned off, these results were confirmed more than once. To put this in perspective, these results are still great, and it’s very unlikely that you’ll ever notice delays before movement when you use this mouse to play. Still, the extra delay might not be noticeable if you usually play fast-paced, competitive games where even milliseconds matter.
The Razer Naga V2 Pro has a scroll wheel that Razer calls a “hyperscroll pro wheel.” You can change how it works. It lets you change how it feels, how hard it is to move, and how many steps are in a full rotation. You can switch between the five presets that come with the scroll wheel by pressing the button below it. You can also add a sixth profile that you make yourself.
3. OPERATING SYSTEM AND SOFTWARE
The Razer Synapse 3 software is used by the Razer Naga V2 Pro. You can change many settings with this software, such as CPI, polling rate, lift-off distance, power settings, scroll wheel settings, and more. The way these options are set up is pretty good, but the number of settings may be too much for some people. Some settings, like the RGB lighting effects, can’t be saved to the onboard memory.Synapse 3 gets a lot of criticism from the general public, just like software from other major companies. During testing, there were no problems with this mouse. However, many online users complain that this software needs to be updated often and uses too many system resources, among other things. This software might be hard to use if you prefer to use lighter software or none at all.
The Razer Naga V2 Pro is a high-end, wireless gaming mouse that continues the Naga line from Razer. This version of the series has a new sensor, a new generation of optical switches, a longer battery life, and a scroll wheel that can be changed to your liking. The mouse looks the same as the Razer Naga Pro from the previous generation, and it still has three side panels that can be changed on the fly, which is a feature that sets this series apart from other MMO mice from other companies.
