Pros Rock solid responsiveness, smooth movement, quality software and drivers. Allows full control of inputs for both buttons and tracking speeds. Lighting schemes are customizable, from single colors to a rotating pattern, brightness is also adjustable.
Cons High price, although the Naga Epic can often be found for under its suggested retail price. As noted by the reviewer, the button layout requires adjustment to an user's normal pattern of use. People looking for a weighted mouse may not like the feel.
Summary Quite simply, the Razer Naga Epic is the best MMO mouse on the market. The customization is top-notch and the build is rock solid, if a bit light.
This is a mouse built to a specific purpose, and it shows throughout. The included pinky-side inserts, and button guides allow the mouse to be fit to the individual user. Addons for games like World of Warcraft are also available for the Naga, and greatly enhance the user experience in those games.
The learning curve for the Naga series of mice is very dependent on the user. Some people will adapt to the button layout and usage in just a few hours, others will literally take months to master it. However, if you're serious about your MMO play, and would benefit from having 17 buttons at your command without taking your hand off your mouse -- the Razer Naga was built for you.
The Naga-series of mice are also outstanding gaming mice in general, but some people may prefer weighting options that the Naga just doesn't have. The Naga will make playing World of Warcraft, League of Legends or many other games that make use of extensive controls more fun -- once you master the layout of the keys, you can focus on the game screen and not look down at the command bar as much.
Bottom line, if you're looking for an MMO mouse -- stop here, you've found the best one available. The Razer Naga offers the best features, and the most usable buttons of any gaming mouse out there.
Pros 17 buttons, huge wireless range, perfect response time, customizable grips, rechargeable, ability to go wireless or hardwired to recharge so no down time for batteries to recharge.
Cons 12 side buttons take a while (few hours to get use to) and you may feel like you can't really hit them all effectively. I doesn't have an I win Button!!
Summary When I read the bottom line on this review I was pretty appalled, the mouse is marketed as a "mmo gaming mouse" and it does this job better than any mouse out there on the market today, MMO's require you to have 20-30+ Commands to hit at any given time, this mouse partnered with the Anansi keyboard gives you the power to hit 84 buttons with 2 thumbs.
One of the best options this mouse gives is the ability to charge while corded, when the warning light hits or if it dies, it takes only 2 secs to plug in to get back into the action.
Pros I love that you can change out the side grips for better customization of movement type, and of course the side buttons are epic.
Cons there are none that I have noticed.
Summary Awesome product, a must buy and I'm a true gamer.
Pros Macro's, keybinds, button placement...in other words the entire concept is a great idea just make one that works properly.
Cons Buttons not working, macros malfunctioning, software suite that will flare up whenever it wants and force a system shutdown, fragile physique, physical button sensitivity, responsiveness, as inaccurate as the Iraqi navy.
Summary It must be me...i originally bought the Logitech MX Revolution and was so mesmerized from having such a HUGE price tag on a such a HUGE piece of trash that I figured I couldn't be beat twice but 100+ mice....well go figure, this mouse sucks period. I've had more frustration and more switching back to my old wireless (go figure more precise / reliable / non-screwup type) cheap-o logitech that really just makes everything better. I'm through with performance mice after this. These companies just rob people with crap parts from China and a markup that makes my butthole pucker...dump this company if you own stock...if you're at the store reading this, leave....with one exception, the Anansi keyboard (suprisingly works, but DOES have some issues however they are nothing compared to this pure trashbag of buttons they call the Naga)...this mouse sucks.. Read someplace this is the flagship of their company....the equivalent is Microsoft Blazing a flag of Windows Vista "we'll pi$$ you off with hours of frustration and forever continue to ignore our user base"....speaks volumes for this flop...don't buy it.
cons continued - in depth:
Macro's somehow garbling up and not working appropriately upon random attempts...my delays are fine, stop telling me to change my delays...what works once as a prerecorded selection of keys should work just the same in the exact same environment, but they seem to have messed this up too.
Buttons not working. Mouse sensitivity (not the cursor, the actual buttons that depress when I breath on them). Inaccuracy (I'm on my 10 thousandth configuration attempt and am giving up, going to purchase whoever is this competitor, it can never be this terrible of a product, jittery, sloppy, unresponsive does NOT work for Microsoft word, let alone any game).
Pros Side key pad.
Cons Keys stop working.
Left and right clicker switch or stop working all together.
Number keys stop working.
If you open the mouse to clean it you cant return it.
Scroll wheel sucks.
Top buttons by the left clicker stop working.
Summary I used this mouse for Arena and raiding. Not only did the clicker stop working so i couldn't strafe out of LoS but it decided to blow my CD macro out of no where. Then to make it all better the key bind i choose to have my main heal on stops working mid raid. For a mouse made soley for gaming and to enhance your gaming its done nothing but give me a headache.
