RAZER NAGA HEX V2: 7 Button Thumb Grid - 16,000 Adjustable DPI - New Ergonomic Form Factor - MOBA Gaming Mouse

The Razer Naga Hex V2 comes with a 7 button mechanical thumb wheel, positioned in a way that ensures you never misclick. The thumb wheel was designed to position buttons equidistant from the thumb, all of which are programmable, giving quick access to multiple commands. At the center of the thumb wheel is a rubberized thumb grip, which provides a solid grip on the mouse. The Razer Naga Hex V2 also features a true 16,000 DPI 5G laser sensor capable of withstanding extremely high movement speeds.

EDIT 1/24/17: I have decided that this mouse is just too wide for my hand, and that my hand cramps up after a while. I gave this mouse to my husband, and he says he loves this mouse and it's perfect for his large hands. (I have changed the rating from 4 to 5 stars because my husband loves it better than his old style Naga, but if you have small hands then I don't think this will be comfortable for you). I have switched to a Logitech G403 and find that it's much better for smaller hands.

I have been using a Razer Naga MMOG for years for games like WoW and FFXIV. Well, the left and right top buttons were no longer responsive, so I decided to get the Razer Naga Chroma MMO corded mouse as a replacement.

The price is great on Amazon, and I love the cycling lights. I also like that the number pad keys stick out more than my previous Naga, making the keys easier to find by touch. The new Naga has a rougher texture than the old Naga. I'm used to the smooth texture, so that will take some getting used to.

Now, despite being larger than my old Naga, it is about 5 grams lighter. Not a game changer, but something to be aware of.

The biggest issue for me is the large size of this mouse. I am female and my hands aren't that big (6.5 inches from bottom of palm to top of middle finger, 3 inches across middle of palm). The mouse is wider and slightly taller than my old one. This makes it a little awkward and uncomfortable to grip. If your hand is larger than mine, then this will probably be great for you. I understand that Razer's demographic will for the most part have larger hands than mine. If I can't get used to the mouse, then I'll most likely give it to my husband to use and find something different.

I used to use a Logitech gaming mouse before I bought this one, and I used to think that that one was a really good mouse (technically still is) but this one blows it out of the water for gaming. Having all of the 1-12 buttons on the side of the mouse makes accessing those hard to cast spells so much easier, as it's only a thumb move away. The sensitivity is fantastic, and the Razer app lets you adjust it to your mousepad. The ring finger rest is also an excellent addition, I feel less fatigue when I use this mouse versus when I used my other one. As if that wasn't good enough, the colors are also completely customizable, the side buttons can be different color from the scroll wheel and the logo, and vice versa for each. Overall I am very satisfied with this purchase, after buying the mouse I caved and got the Razer Ultimate 2016 keyboard (the one I am using currently to write this) and I gotta say, I have been sold on their products from now on.

Awesome mouse. Bought it for FFXIV. So cool to have an entire extra bar of abilities on your mouse. I also got the wired version. Great mice, zero issues with synapse and profiles and button configurations switch over and sync between my desktop and laptop with no problems. I thought it would hate it at first due to button placement. It takes a bit to get used to, but once you do you will not want another mouse.

After my former Razer gaming MMO mouse served me well, it's buttons finally began to wear out. A single click would register as a double click leading to frustration. I picked this one up as a replacement and am satisfied with it. Unfortunately this one does not have the swappable side plate like my previous mouse. I liked that feature as it allowed for a more ergonomic grip and a place for your pinky to rest on instead of on the mousepad.

The mouse has a 12 button grid on the side making it ideal for MMO's where you need quick access to hotkeyed abilities. Set keybinds using shift+# and you can easily expand this to 24 unique inputs. You also have two buttons on top. The Scroll wheel itself is also a button and can be moved side to side as well as up and down. The mouse glows with a array of different colors and can be configured using the provided software.

This is my first true 'gaming' mouse I've ever bought. Wow what a difference. For more casual players or those trying to get serious with their gaming, it may seem like a big much to spend, but it is absolutely worth it. The ability to customize all the buttons exactly to how you want them, the number of them, ergonomics, placement of the buttons and so on, do a lot to quicken the player's reaction time and making interaction much more intuitive, leading to much better overall performance. A friend convinced me to make this investment, and was absolutely not disappointed.

The product itself is excellent. Very comfortable in-hand, texture is excellent, buttons are responsive and crisp. I was worried also the placement of the buttons and so on might lead to accidental clicks, but this has not happened. Obviously the lighting and all that is cool, but being as I am much more concerned with function than form, it is works excellently. Everything down to the packaging and 'thank you' note is classy and inspires confidence in the product.

The only con I have to mention is, where the thumb rests: the little rubber circle in the center of the ring of side-buttons gets a little slick with use; I added a small square of [black] athletic tape to solve the problem. Nothing's perfect, but man if this doesn't come close. Very small gripe; otherwise absolutely intuitive; so useful I've had to start re-thinking the way I play.

Nicely done Razer!

I have very large hands, for years and years I used the Logitech g600 mouse, and although I like it, thumb buttons would fail before 1 year of use, and with how expensive they are, after going through three of them I was fed up. Then I went really expensive and tried the Rat 9 mouse. The adjustability is great for ergonomic reasons and it was great in the hand, but that adjustability came at the price of durability... completely broke before a year of use.
Then I came across this gem. it's not the cheapest mouse in the world, but certainly more affordable than a lot of competing models. Got it and it is big. I have no trouble with my hand cramping, and I love the placement of the thumb buttons, and the lighting effects are cool.
I have one at work that I use for CAD (the programmable buttons are AWESOME), and I use it at home for gaming (did I mention the programmable buttons) where the quick change resolution is very handy on fps games.
there's no such thing as perfect, but this thing is real close for a fair price, hopefully it will be a little more durable than my previous ventures, it does feel very study... we shall see.

I've been using Razer products since they became a thing ages ago. I needed a new mouse because my last one kicked the bucket, so I decided to stick with the Naga because of the muscle memory I've developed with it over a decade of MMOs, rather than switching to one of the other brands with a button grid.

The Naga Chroma seems like a solid build and I'm very happy with it so far (I previously had the older version). It does what I need at a moderate price. However, Razer products have historically had short lifespans. I've been through at least six of the Naga series mice since I began buying them. Usually their scroll wheel begins skipping or sticking after awhile. I've had some develop double-clicking on the mouse buttons. I had one completely brick from a firmware update. Only time will tell if this one will hold up well. In my experience they usually last through about a year of heavy usage (8+ hours a day), which I feel is pretty good.

If you want a nice, relatively cheap gaming mouse with a ton of customizable buttons, this is the way to go. If you want a gaming mouse that will last years and years, use caution and don't expect much. Razer may have upped their game since my last purchase, but I'll believe it when I see it. Fingers crossed!

Very pleased. Razer never fails to deliver on the high end.
I am only 2 days in but I will update this review as things go accordingly.
I bought this mouse to replace my everyday one. I needed something I could use for shooters MMOs and pretty much any game under the sun. I am not disappointed in the comfort, utility and style this mouse has to offer. I have to admit, I didn't think I would use the chroma function but I spent an hour making color presets, it's really a wonderful feature.
I have used it in SWTOR and so far it's AMAZING to eliminate the annoying keyboard numbers. If you have never used an MMO mouse and you get this one, be patient with it, the key switches are really responsive and are positioned in such a good way to learn them very easily by memory. As of now I am still looking down from time to time and looking to make sure I press the right number.
As for shooters, I played CSGO and MGS5 and I noticed the sensor is very accurate and shows no acceleration. Do not worry about pressing the buttons accidentally, I have a heavy hand and it takes a very comfortable amount of force to make a key press. The ergonomics also focus more on your pinkie doing most of the liftoff, the very rubberized grip makes sure there is minimal weight bearing on your thumb so you can use it all for you key presses. This is a highly regarded mouse and now I see why.

I've used Razer's Naga for years now. It's kind of a love-hate relationship. The mouse is great, but I've become super dependent on the layout to play my MMOs effectively. The lifespan on these things is about 2-3 years, so expect to be buying a new one down the road. My first one, the wireless Naga, started double clicking everything on single clicks. My second, the right mouse button would stop responding in game, which became annoying very quickly. I'm on my 3rd, now, so we'll see how long this one lasts. For all of it's durability faults, I do enjoy the mouse and the freedom it gives me. It's also allowed me to go down to a tenkeyless keyboard, so I feel more "centered" when I game. I have small hands and I find it isn't too big. Buttons 1-9 are easy to press, but I struggle a bit to reach 10-12, so I bind "unimportant" skills like auto run and such to those. I do recommend it, but know that you're buying a product that won't last more than 3 years with every-day use.


-Razer updated the hex to look like the rest of their modern peripheral line. That's a great thing because the original Hex's looked ugly and like something out of the 90s.
-It's got fancy shmancy rgbs and some mild abilities to give them some different customization effects.
-It's the same shape as the naga which I find to be one of the most comfortable mice available.

-I wish it had more synchronizing with other razer chroma products. While I can set it to slow-cycle through the colors with my keyboard, it won't synchronize with random color breathing or other efffects. Seems like theres really only one time that it pairs together in the modes.
-It's only my first day but the LEDs inside made this mouse HOT. I'm talking temperature wise. Its noticably VERY warm on the thumb grip, and thee rest of the mouse is toasty. I don't think I've felt this kind of heat from a mouse since the 2012 naga's thumbpad and never felt heat on the 2014 naga model. While it's not uncomfortably hot, it is VERY noticable and can seem distracting, it might lead to disabling the LEDs just to get rid of the distraction, which is a shame.
