RAZER NAGA V2 PRO REVIEW | Versatile MMO colossus

 Over the year, Razer has brought some upgrades to almost the entire mouse range and the well-known MMO mouse Razer Naga is no exception. Although the Brummer now costs a whopping EUR 199.99, it also offers a lot of high-tech. New switches, a new sensor, wireless and BlueTooth operation and interchangeable side panels are designed to make the new Razer Naga V2 Pro more flexible than ever.

While shooter players usually spawn with rather spartan, but light mice, most MMO and MOBA players have different requirements, simply because these genres allow significantly more functions and actions. Mice with plenty of additional keys are welcome so that you don't have to control everything with shortcut keys and macros.

The Razer Naga V2 Pro, an upgrade of the well-known Razer Naga, wants to offer as much flexibility as possible without sacrificing state-of-the-art technology. It shouldn't be difficult to guess that this has its price - the Razer Naga V2 Pro costs a whopping 199.99 euros. Even if that exceeds your budget, you are welcome to continue reading, because it costs nothing.


The Naga V2 Pro turns out to be an extremely high-quality right-handed mouse that, thanks to its rough surface, is quite secure in the hand. The mouse is relatively wide and optimized especially for palm grip users and is ergonomically shaped accordingly. What is striking is the relatively high weight of 134 grams - not exactly something for shooter players who want to scurry over the mouse pad as quickly as possible.

What is already noticeable when unpacking: The Naga V2 Pro has three interchangeable side panels with different button assignments. For key magicians, there is a panel with twelve programmable keys. Those who like it a little more spartan will probably find variant 2 with "only" six buttons more appealing. For purists or everyday use, there is also a version with just two buttons. Thanks to the magnetic attachment and the ingenious shape, the change is quick and error-free. The arrangement and the pressure points of the keys are successful, but the 12-key variant requires some practice and sensitivity.

The USB-C charging cable is, of course, detachable. The mouse can be operated in three ways. Via cable, using LightSpeed ​​wireless technology via a USB dongle in 2.4 GHz operation, or via BlueTooth. Practical: Razer also uses a dual dongle for the Naga, which means that in addition to the mouse you can also use one of the newer Razer keyboards with one and the same dongle. That saves you at least one USB port.

The battery life is a strong 150 hours (manufacturer information) in wireless mode. In order to achieve this, you should probably do without the lighting. As already mentioned, it is charged via the USB cable. Alternatively, there is also a slot for the Razer Qi-Puck on the underside, so you can also charge the mouse contactlessly, for example on the Razer Mouse Dock Pro, which costs a lot more.


Technically, Razer has left nothing out. The latest third-generation optical switches with low latency and long service life are slumbering under the mouse buttons. The mouse wheel is called HyperScroll and is a whole different story. Using five predefined presets or the Synapse software, you can configure it to your own taste, from the resistance to the grid and its intervals. very cool Incidentally, profiles can also be created in the software and called up with a button on the bottom. There is also a switch for wireless and BlueTooth operation.

When it comes to the sensor, Razer relies on the optical Razer Focus Pro Sensor with a full 30,000 DPI, which is installed in most of the newer high-end models. Basically, nobody needs it, but it has the advantage that the scanning is immensely precise and also very fast. The sensor, which was developed together with Pixart, can be used on all surfaces and even on glass. The sensor has been built into the Basilisk V3, Viper V2, and DeathAdder V3 for quite some time, so you no longer have to worry about teething problems.

As expected, the Naga V2 Pro does not make any mistakes in practical use. The ergonomics are pleasant, the key feedback is very good and, above all, the configurable mouse wheel can convince us. There were no dropouts in wireless mode and the sensor did its job quickly and extremely precisely. The Naga is boom tax, but if you don't want to make any compromises with your multi-button mouse, you'll get your money's worth with it.

If you want it to be a little simpler, less flexible, and, above all, significantly cheaper, you can use the Razer Naga V2 HyperSpeed. It only costs 109.99 euros, and is also wireless via BlueTooth and USB wireless, but you get a permanently installed side panel with twelve buttons and two additional buttons on the top left next to the left mouse button. At just 95 grams, the LightSpeed ​​variant is also a bit lighter. In addition to the exchangeable side panels, the port for the Qi-Puck is also missing.


A lot of technology in a relatively small mouse

My face, Razer stuffed the new edition of the Naga properly. You also notice the weight and the rather wide case. But in principle, everything is in it, what you could wish for. The sensor and switch are the finest and state-of-the-art, the connectivity leaves nothing to be desired and the Naga has also increased its battery life.

The various side parts with their different button sets ensure a lot of flexibility, whereby the mouse is primarily aimed at gamers who are at home in genres with many button assignments. For shooter players, the Brummer is just a tad too heavy. We also really like the configurable mouse wheel, which can be quickly adapted to personal preferences.

Whether you want to buy the all-rounder for World of Warcraft: Dragonflight or other current MMOs ultimately remains a question of the exorbitant price. In any case, there is nothing wrong with the quality of the Razer Naga V2 Pro. As an alternative, there is also the wireless Naga V2 HyperSpeed ​​with a permanently installed 12-button side panel and without Qi option or RGB lighting for 109.99 euros. Sensor, buttons, and mouse wheel are identical.
