Recap: Razer on Thursday announced a new pro-grade wireless gaming mouse that can adapt to a variety of play styles. The Razer Naga Pro is the successor to the Naga Trinity, a pointer that launched in 2017 with three interchangeable side plates. This allowed gamers to equip the mouse with two, seven or 12 thumb buttons to better match their play style / preferred game genre.

The new Naga Pro offers similar interchangeable panels. The two-button plate is for first-person shooters, the six-button panel is designed for battle royale / MOBA games and the 12-button side panel is recommended for MMO / RTS titles.

Razer’s new Naga Pro packs the Focus+ optical sensor, a 20,000 DPI sensor with smart tracking technology that is able to calibrate itself across different surfaces, and optical switches affording instant actuation and up to 70 million clicks. Battery life is rated at up to 100 hours over 2.4 GHz or 150 hours when connecting via Bluetooth.

Razer’s latest rodent also supports HyperSpeed Wireless technology which uses an optimized data protocol to reduce the time it takes to transfer data between the mouse and your PC. According to Razer, the tech is 25 percent faster than any other wireless gaming technology, and is more energy efficient, too.

Interested parties can pick up the new Razer Naga Pro wireless mouse directly from Razer and through authorized resellers starting today for $149.99.

Great concept. Painful price tag.

Ironically, I use both a Logitech G600 and a G602 for my gaming and work rigs (those programmable buttons are amazing for CAD work). I've always like the Trinity since it had both thumb button layouts I'm used to (6 button and 12 button), but lack of wireless made it less appealing to spend the money. Having 1 mouse that does both, is wireless, and has bluetooth capabilities, that's tempting.

One thing I guarantee it won't adapt to: the 25% of PC gamers who are left-handed.

Razer has been known to make left-handed models for a few of their products, even when the request of them is minimal. I believe they did a Kickstarter and made a left-handed Naga in the past. The problem is that the overhead and initial costs (design, molds, etc.) cost a fortune, and the actual demand for something like a left-handed mouse often doesn't come close to covering those production costs. It's a demand & supply problem - demand is low, and supply has to be produced in high numbers to make the product profitable, so it's often a losing scenario.

I had the 1st gen Naga, and the left click became intermitten, then I had to 2nd gen, ended up with the same issue.

I bought a Trust MMO mouse with the same buttons on the side and have had it for the last 9 years without issue.

No more Nagas for me thanks.

Same problem with my Naga. Second had poor contact with surface so occasionally you would have to lift it up and place it down again.
