Razer is one of the biggest gaming peripheral manufacturers in the industry. If you consider yourself a gamer and you’ve never heard this name you’re likely still sitting in front of your Commodore64 swapping floppies in and out (not that there’s anything wrong with that!)
Making everything from mousepads and t-shirts to fully capable gaming laptops, Razer is a company dead set on making only the best most dominant products in its category.
Today we’ll be taking a look at the Razer Naga. This is a top tier mouse aimed at the MMO/RTS crowds. If you’re not familiar with these games they involve a lot a lot of number button combos and quick mouse movements respectively. As such this mouse is packed with a myriad of buttons and an insane dpi. Follow along as we find out if Razer hit this one out of the park or if you should leave this product on shelf to gather dust.
As with all Razer products this mouse comes in a matte black box with flashy lettering and a flip panel behind which is a preview window with the mouse itself. The back and sides of the box are covered in specs and required system specs.

Open the package and you’ll find the mouse itself as well as the standard matte black Razer product information envelope.
In the envelope there are the usual product information cards, some stickers, an advertisement card, and a guide to using this mouse. Yes, you read that correctly a guide to using the mouse! If you hadn’t noticed in spec list or the pictures this mouse has more than the usual assemblage of buttons. And as such Razer wants to make sure that you learn to make full use of them by including a guide and some learning stickers to teach your fingers to be able to find the correct buttons. It’s very similar to the way you have to train yourself to be able to find the correct keys on your keyboard without peeking.
