The mouse itself is all black, with a matte black top and gloss black sides. When plugged in and used with the Razer software the mouse has blue back-lit led lighting and the Razer symbol right in the palm area. This being both a boon and a bane, the Razer symbol has a self-dimming feature and kind of fades in and out which is pretty cool. Regrettably, sometimes you just want it to stay solid and on and that wasn’t something thought of by Razer as this is a on or off only feature.
Front left and right are the standard left and right mouse clickers. Squeezed between them you will find a very apt scroll wheel. This a sore spot for many a mouse where a cheep scroll wheel kills the feel of the mouse. In this case it’s solid, notches accurately and easily, while still having a good amount of resistance; great job Razer! One thing worthy of noting, it’s rather wide for a scroll wheel and as such you’ll find it only does forward and backwards. No left or right scrolling here.
On the Front left you’ll find the page forward and backwards buttons. For me I found these to be a bit far forward and odd to use at first. If you are a person with shorter fingers this is something to consider as in can be a bit of a reach for a function you will use frequently while browsing.
Moving on to the cord you’ll find in pleasantly sleeved with black braided sleeving and a high quality gold plated USB plug.
Over all the mouse has a nice, tight, solid construction and does not feel cheap in the slightest.
Finally, directly below the area where you would rest your thumb is a 12 button number key area. This is the most distinct feature of this mouse and both mind blowing and possibly frustrating when you start to work with it.
Now, let’s talk about lazers! Ok ok, suppress your inner nerd, how about just the lazer sensor Razer included in the Naga? One thing for certain is that it is both incredible fast and incredibly accurate. It is a 3.5G sensor capable of 5600dpi has an incredible 200 tracking speed and (at the time of this mouses release)is capable of responding faster than any monitor on the market. Now you say, “That’s all well and good, but what does that relate to in terms of actual use?” It means that no matter how fast or twitchy you game, this mouse can keep up. Does this mean it’s only for those users? Of course not, for me this is total over-kill. What it does mean is that whatever speed you use it at it will not be taxing the mouse and you will get good consistent responses every time.
