Razer is expanding its family of gaming mice with the launch of the new Razer Naga X, which is now the lightest mouse in the Naga lineup. The lightweight design and robust customizations on the Naga X make it ideally suited for MMO gamers, the company said, and if youâ€™re already gaming on Razerâ€™s ecosystem of laptops, the Chroma RGB lighting on the Naga X would be a nice addition to your existing setup.
The Naga X comes with 16 buttons in a lightweight 85-gram design. Like the original Naga, it looks like gamers wonâ€™t be able to adjust the weight on this model, but an array of programmable buttons on the side of the Naga X makes it easy to map to essential game keys. Razerâ€™s HyperShift allows you to double the number of inputs with a secondary button profile when the HyperShift button is held down. Gamers can use Razerâ€™s Synapse 3 to map the Naga Xâ€™s buttons. Thereâ€™s also onboard memory, so you can save all your presets to the mouse.
In total, youâ€™re getting nine action buttons, along with three different assignable buttons on the side.
â€œEach button can be assigned to basic functions like casting spells to advanced functions, such as macros combining multiple command keys all at once,â€� the company said, noting that the Naga X was â€œmade to raid.â€�
Up top, youâ€™re getting the traditional left and right mouse buttons, an autorun scroller, two zoom controllers to zoom in and out, and a button to increase the DPI to adjust the sensitivity of the Naga X. The buttons make use of Razerâ€™s second-generation optical mouse switch design for better tactile feedback. The infrared light is rated with a fast 0.2ms response time. The Naga X also uses Razerâ€™s 5G advanced optical sensor for 99.4% accurate tracking, the company said.
Other features of the Naga X include PTFE feet for the smoothest glide across any surface, along with a braided Speedflex cable thatâ€™s designed for minimal drag when youâ€™re playing fast, action-packed titles.
The Naga X comes in an ergonomic design for gamers with medium to large hands, Razer claims, and the overall package is made for those who prefer palm or claw grip styles. If youâ€™re unsure of your hand size, Razer has a convenient guide that shows you how to measure your hand to find the perfect mouse for your needs depending on the types of games you typically play.
Razerâ€™s Naga X is shipping now, and right-handed MMO gamers can pick one up from the companyâ€™s online store for $79 â€” this mouse wonâ€™t be a good fit for left-handed users.
