League of Legends Naga Hex Goliathus

The Razer Naga Hex mouse is a tried and true gamers mouse but the League of Legends Collector’s Edition brings gamers from the popular multiplayer battle game to their peak performance using the added thumb buttons. The League of Legends Collector’s Edition Naga Hex mouse is a professional quality gamers mouse that includes the mouse and a manual while drivers are available for download from the Razer website.

League of Legends Naga Hex Whats in the Box

The Razer League of Legends Naga Hex Gamers Mouse has the usual finger buttons along with the scroll wheel with push button, two additional top buttons and the six thumb buttons on the side. The Razer Naga Hex with the League of Legends logo is a great mouse with adjustable sensitive and stages of adjustments for in game changing using the Razer Synapse software.

 

The Razer Synapse software allows gamers to save profiles and button assignments on a Razer server so you can download your assignments no matter where you are as long as you have an internet connection. The Synapse program from Razer is the best driver and functionality program I have seen for gaming mice and really makes the use of all Razer mice for not only games but for other programs a dream.

The Razer League of Legends Gaming Mouse is a rebuild of the Razer Naga Hex with the six side buttons on the thumb side for right hand use that has a 5600 dots per inch 3.5G laser sensor for precision sensing. The Razer Synapse program allows you to adjust the sensor from 100 up to the maximum 5600 DPI for your choice of sensor speed along with your choice of acceleration if you want.

The Razer Naga Hex also has five sensitivy settings you can save that allows you to change sensitivity in game using any assigned mouse buttons but a common setup for me is the two smaller buttons on top of the mouse behind the scroll wheel. These two small buttons make assignments to adjust sensitivity easy while in game so you can switch from a slower on screen movement needed for precise aiming like sniper work to a higher one needed for general rapid movement to keep the action in front of you.

 

The Razer Naga Hex mouse does work extremely well but it is a smaller mouse so is more comfortable for those with normal to smaller hands, I prefer a mouse with a larger size so the League of Legends Naga Hex mouse was a bit small for me. The mouse performed well and I had no problems using it in first person shooters and some strategy games but did not use the mouse much for games like League of Legends as I don’t really like fighting battle type games.

Naga Hex Side Buttons

The assignments for the thumb buttons worked perfectly and for my Battlefield 3 fps gaming I left them as they were for quick switching of weapons without having to go to my keyboard. The Naga Hex mouse also worked well for Company of Heroes as it meant quickly switching from one unit to the next when I assigned the numbers to units for easy control in those fast paced situations.

 

The League of Legends Collector’s Edition Mouse is a great gaming mouse and one that is perfect for League of Legends fans but the fun does not stop there as Razer has also released a League of Legends Collector’s Edition Goliathus soft gaming mouse mat. The popular Goliathus Speed edition mouse mat is a tight weave cloth with foam rubber bottom for a seamless mousing surface while the stitching around the edge will give protection from fraying.

The Razer Goliathus is a fantastic mouse mat and the League of Legends fight scene really has a nice look to it even if you’re not a fan of the game genre. The League of Legends Collector’s Edition Goliathus Mouse Mat is a great mouse mat for gaming and works well with the Razer Naga Hex and other gaming mice I have been using with it.

I can easily recommend the Razer League of Legends Collector’s editions of both the Naga Hex mouse and Goliathus mouse mat for gaming grade peripherals that will enhance your gaming and general computer use.

Razer Naga 2012 Expert MMO Gaming Mouse

Razer Naga 2012 Expert MMO Gaming Mouse

The Razer Naga 2012 Expert MMO Gaming Mouse brings the new Synapse 2.0 software that Razer has recently released to the massive multiplayer online expert gaming mouse with cloud based settings and automatic updates.

Razer Naga Expert MMO Gaming Mouse 2012 Edition

Razer has updated the software that runs their peripherals and using cloud based setting storage for players they now offer a way for gamers to automatically save and download any game or player specific settings. Connect to the internet, download the Razer Synapse program and install and your saved settings are available at your fingertips for any Razer peripheral that uses Synapse 2.0.

Razer Synapse 2.0 is not just a cloud based place for gamers to save settings but also updates drivers and firmware so gamers are constantly at the top of their game as far as hardware is concerned; the rest is up to you. Razer has gone above and beyond with keeping their peripherals current and they have also listened to gamers with what they want for gaming hardware when it comes to gaming performance.

Razer Synapse 2.0 also does something for gamers when they just have to do that other stuff like image editing and simple web browsing by storing settings specific to programs like Photoshop or Dreamweaver. You can use various configurations and store them in the cloud while also being able to automatically switch settings per program when you open them.

Whats in the Box

The Naga 2012 Edition has the usual slick Teflon pads on the bottom with one on each of the side panels and four on the main part of the mouse. The bottom also sports the number or keypad switch so the ten number buttons on the side will either emulate the numbers above the letter keys or the number pad keys.

The Razer Naga 2012 Edition does use the MMO specific side buttons to create a panel of 12 inputs using your thumb while the other side of the mouse has the three interchangeable side panels for optimized fit. You can use the side panel that best fits your hand and style of mouse usage from the very ergonomic style of gaming mouse with its general shape that fits comfortably in my hand.

The Naga 2012 Edition like previous editions has three interchangeable side pieces for the comfort of the user depending on how you like your mouse. You can use the smaller unobtrusive side for a more ergonomic fit, the ring finger support side or the ring and small finger support side for the most comfortable side you like.

Razer Naga Side Panels

The side panels fit onto the side of the mouse using four screws and magnets to hold the side on and even active gaming will not budge the pieces off the mouse. The various side panels make for the most comfortable mouse for any given user and makes the Naga 2012 Edition very customizable in both shape and programing.

The Naga 2012 Edition does not come with any drivers on a disc as you simply download them from the Razer support website but once you connect and have them installed you can customize any of the 17 mouse buttons. The four buttons of the mouse finger buttons, two buttons behind the scroll wheel and the scroll wheel itself mean a good versatile mouse but the addition of twelve side buttons give you lots of configuration options.

The Razer Naga 2012 Edition is mainly meant for Massive Multiplayer Games like Dungeons and Dragons Online or World of Warcraft and makes a handy way to access multiple spells or items. The included rubber indicators that Razer calls Grid Trainers allow you to get the thumb button positions down but you can keep them on for the life of the mouse to help with button locations.

The temporary adhesive on the buttons does mean that they will come off fairly easily but you can use something stronger to glue the indicators in place on any of the buttons you want. The Naga 2012 Edition comes with two sets of indicators with one set being rectangular and slanted to coincide with the buttons shape and the other set is round and you can put a single indicator or several on the side buttons.

The Razer Naga 2012 Edition has the usual profiles where you can save specific settings per game so when the game starts it will automatically switch to that profile. The newer Synapse program and cloud based setting saves allows for a user to save both settings and profiles in the cloud so that you always have them available over the internet.

The Razer Naga 2012 mouse now includes just about everything a gamer could want and the mouse also works very well for other tasks like image editing and web browsing. I have set up the mouse to work with common tasks like opening menu popups for image size and crop that makes my work on product shots that much easier.

The Razer Naga may be for gamers but it also works exceptionally well for other tasks and can be quite handy for many different programs and uses. The Razer Naga 2012 edition does make an excellent mouse for other programs but it excels at massive multiplayer online games.

Razer Synapse 2.0

The Razer Naga Expert MMO Gaming Mouse costs about $80 and can be found online at Razer and at other sites and local stores that sell high quality computer peripherals.
