Razer’s been making small– yet excellent– updates to its pc gaming computer mice over the previous year. Yet its MMO-focused Naga line has actually constantly gone to or near the top of our listing of ideal pc gaming computer mice for gamers of MMOs as well as MOBAs. And also, since the intro of the Razer Naga Trinity, it’s been just one of one of the most functional pc gaming computer mice, greatly many thanks to its compatible side plates.
So, where does Razer go from there?
Obviously, much more functional: the brand-new Razer Naga V2 Pro keeps its precursor’s convertible side plates as well as includes a distinctively adjustable scroll wheel that allows customers modify scroll stress, variety of scroll actions, as well as haptic feeling. It’s cordless, with 3 connection alternatives, as well as has actually an updated Emphasis Pro 30K optical sensing unit in addition to the brand name’s third-gen optical buttons. It flaunts as much as 150 hrs of battery life over 2.4 GHz cordless (as much as 300 hrs over Bluetooth), as well as has up to 20 programmable switches, consisting of the three-click scroll wheel as well as the account turn on all-time low of the computer mouse.
These excellent functions as well as specifications come with a price, normally: the Naga V2 Pro retails for $179.99– which’s simply the computer mouse (no wireless billing dock or various other devices). That’s not to state the Naga V2 Pro isn’t worth it, due to the fact that it definitely is, if you require an unbelievably functional computer mouse. Yet does any individual in fact require an unbelievably functional computer mouse?
Layout as well as Convenience of the Naga V2 Pro
The Naga V2 Pro is a medium-sized cordless computer mouse with compatible side plates as well as an adjustable scroll wheel. It does not drift a lot, design-wise, from the Razer Naga Pro (or the Razer Naga X); the Naga V2 Pro has the very same right-handed, gently-sloped body as its precursors, with a bulge that’s closer to the back of the computer mouse as well as a ridge on the best side for relaxing your third finger. It’s housed in a plastic framework with a smooth, matte black coating, as well as it has a distinctive panel on its best side (under the third finger ridge).
I had not been knocked down by exactly how comfy the Naga V2 Pro was, yet I did discover it to be a really comfy computer mouse, on the whole. I have medium-sized hands as well as reasonably lengthy fingers, as well as this computer mouse gets on the bigger side of tool (though it’s not as lengthy as the DeathAdder V3 Pro or the Basilisk V3 Pro), gauging 4.7 x 2.97 x 1.72 inches (119.5 x 75.5 x 43.3 mm). It considers 4.72 ounces (134g), which is rather hefty, also for an MMO/MOBA computer mouse– the Redragon M913 Effect Elite considers 4.55 ounces (130g), the Corsair Sword RGB Elite considers 4.3 ounces (122g), as well as Razer’s very own Naga Pro considers 4.12 ounces (116.5 g). The additional weight really did not trouble me, yet I’m a palm-gripper that chooses larger computer mice.

The Naga V2 Pro features 3 compatible side plates with 12, 6, as well as 2 switches. The side plates affix magnetically, that makes them really simple to switch out. The 12-button plate has actually phoned number switches with RGB, which can be personalized in Razer’s Synapse 3 software application. The 6- as well as two-button plates do not have RGB, yet do have actually textured panels for grasp.
There’s a little port under side plates where you can keep the computer mouse’s 2.4 GHz cordless dongle when you’re not utilizing it (e.g. if you link via Bluetooth or the Razer Computer Mouse Dock Pro).
The Naga V2 Pro additionally features a 2.4 GHz cordless dongle, a 6-foot (1.8 m) USB-C to USB-A Speedflex cord, as well as a USB extender.
Under of the computer mouse you’ll discover the power/connectivity button, an account adjustment switch, as well as a detachable puck that can be changed with the cordless billing puck from the Razer Computer Mouse Dock Pro (offered individually). The account adjustment switch can be reprogrammed in Razer’s Synapse 3 software application. This provides the computer mouse a total amount of 10, 14, or 20 programmable switches, consisting of the three-way clickable scroll wheel (right, left, as well as routine click).

Efficiency of the Naga V2 Pro
The Naga V2 Pro includes Razer’s Emphasis Pro 30K optical sensing unit, which has an optimum level of sensitivity of 30,000 DPI, an optimum speed of 750 IPS, as well as an optimum velocity of 70g. It makes use of Razer’s gen-3 optical buttons, which are ranked for 90 million clicks (which is … lots). Every one of the Naga V2 Pro’s switches, consisting of all 12 on the 12-button side plate, are well-placed as well as very easy to press.
I checked the Naga V2 Pro with all 3 side plates in a range of video games, consisting of an MMO ( Senior Citizen Scrolls Online), a MOBA ( Organization of Legends), a single-player FPS ( The Callisto Procedure), as well as an affordable on-line FPS ( Overwatch 2) The Naga V2 Pro executed well throughout the board– the sensing unit was precise as well as specific, there was no obvious click latency, as well as switches used simply the correct amount of responsive responses.
While I really did not mind the Naga V2 Pro’s heftiness on the whole, it was a little as well hefty in both single-player as well as affordable initial individual shooters. In video games where rate is leading concern, an ultra-light computer mouse such as the DeathAdder V3 Pro is mosting likely to win for me, each time.
The Naga V2 Pro is semi-compatible with Razer’s Computer mouse Dock Pro ($ 70). It can link via the Computer mouse Dock Pro (instead of its 2.4 GHz dongle) as well as fee wirelessly. It can not benefit from the Computer mouse Dock Pro’s incorporated 4K HyperPolling transceiver (neither is it suitable with Razer’s HyperPolling Wireless Dongle), as well as has an optimum ballot price of 1,000 Hz.
This isn’t truly a problem, because ballot prices over 1,000 Hz are mostly for speed-focused players at an elite, affordable degree of play– as well as, as we have actually developed, this is not truly that type of computer mouse to begin with. Nonetheless, this deserves mentioning for any individual thinking about grabbing the Computer mouse Dock Pro– cordless charging is all you’ll obtain. The Naga V2 Pro is additionally suitable with Razer’s Wireless Charging Puck, which can be acquired individually for $20 as well as collaborates with any kind of Qi-certified cordless billing gadget.
Attributes as well as Software Application of the Naga V2 Pro
You can set up the Naga V2 Pro utilizing Razer’s Synapse 3 software application. The primary display has a top-down computer mouse sight, in addition to profiles for every of the 3 side plates; you do not require to have a details side plate affixed to set its switches. All switches, consisting of the account switch button under of the computer mouse, are programmable (with 2 layers of programmability by means of Razer’s HyperShift attribute). The computer mouse has actually onboard memory with space to accumulate to 5 accounts.
Along with switch programs, you can additionally change the computer mouse’s DPI to be as in-depth (or otherwise) as you such as. The computer mouse ships with 5 conventional DPI phases (400 – 6400), which you can cycle via utilizing the DPI switch button (2nd switch under the scroll wheel). You can alter these phases, eliminate actions, or make it possible for various DPI setups for upright (x-axis) as well as straight (y-axis) computer mouse motion.
Probably one of the most intriguing attribute of the Naga V2 Pro is its HyperScroll Pro scroll wheel, which has 6 various settings, consisting of a user-adjusted personalized setting. These settings vary from “unique,” which has high scroll stress as well as a reduced variety of scroll actions for company, unique scrolling; to “ultra-fine,” which has modest scroll stress as well as a really high variety of scroll actions for soft, yet still responsive, scrolling; to “smooth scroll,” which has absolutely no scroll stress for smooth, fluid motion.
You can reorganize the setting order, toggle settings on or off, as well as switch on alternatives such as “web browser discovery,” which immediately changes the scroll setting to “smooth scroll” when you open internet browsers or various other applications. You can additionally establish the personalized scroll setting with your recommended scroll stress (0 – 100) as well as variety of scroll actions (0 – 96), as well as change the method scrolling really feels utilizing the haptics chart.
There are various other computer mice with scroll wheels that switch over in between notched/tactile scrolling as well as smooth scrolling, consisting of Razer’s Basilisk V3 Pro, yet the Naga V2 Pro’s personalization is special. The Naga V2 Pro’s scroll wheel settings are software-reliant, unlike the tactile/free-spinning scroll wheels on several of Logitech’s computer mice (consisting of the G502 X And Also as well as the MX Master Six), which are hardware-based.
Wireless Experience as well as Battery Life
The Naga V2 Pro uses 3 types of connection: wireless (2.4 GHz cordless as well as Bluetooth) as well as wired (USB-C). It features a 2.4 GHz cordless USB-A dongle, in addition to a six-foot USB-C to USB-A Razer Speedflex cord.
Razer states the Naga V2 Pro’s battery will certainly last as much as 150 hrs with a 2.4-GHz cordless link, as well as as much as 300 hrs with a Bluetooth link. These numbers were plainly computed with RGB illumination switched off: I originally utilized the computer mouse with the illumination on (as well as readied to max illumination), as well as I was striking 50% after a day’s well worth of modest usage. Yet after I transformed the illumination off, the computer mouse went down from 100% to simply 96% in the very same quantity of time.
The Razer Naga V2 Pro’s compatible side plates as well as special, multi-mode scroll wheel make it among one of the most adjustable computer mice on the marketplace. It’s additionally spec would certainly out with Razer’s Emphasis Pro 30K sensing unit as well as 150+ hrs of battery life, as well as its cost shows that. At $180, it is just one of one of the most costly pc gaming computer mice on the marketplace– which number does not also consist of a cordless billing dock (the $170 Roccat Kone XP Air features a dock).
The Naga V2 Pro is an superb pc gaming computer mouse, yet it’s loaded with functions several players might not require or make use of. Exactly how frequently do you truly anticipate to switch side plates? My assumption is seldom– I can see periodically switching in between 2, yet 3? As Well As while the Naga V2 Pro’s adjustable scroll wheel is special, it really feels a little bit unneeded. Every one of the predetermined scroll settings (minus smooth scroll) were a little as well tight for me, so I invested a lot of my time switching in between smooth scroll as well as my personalized (responsive) setting– I would certainly favor a great two-mode configuration to 5 or 6 pointless settings any kind of day.
For MMO gamers that do not require a computer mouse that can change right into a computer mouse that’s except MMOs, Razer additionally introduced the Naga V2 HyperSpeed ($ 99.99). The V2 HyperSpeed has the very same form-factor as well as sensing unit as the V2 Pro, yet it abandons the compatible plates for a dealt with 12-button configuration as well as the adjustable HyperScroll Pro wheel for a normal HyperScroll wheel with 2 settings (responsive as well as free-spin). The V2 HyperSpeed is cordless as well as powered by means of battery (1x AA) for as much as 250 hrs over 2.4 GHz cordless as well as as much as 400 hrs over Bluetooth.
