Razer Naga 2012 MMO Gaming Mouse with Adjustable Grips
As a fan of PC games, I’ve always been partial to the keyboard and mouse control scheme. Several years ago, the gaming hardware company Razer created the “Naga”. The Naga is a gaming mouse that features a 12-Key thumbpad for use with Massively Multiplayer (and other) games. I’ve long been a fan of the standard 2 button Microsoft Mouse. I’ve been using the same model for years, and I’ve grown accustomed to the shape and feel. When I purchased the original Naga years ago, I was disappointed to discover that I hated the shape. In fact, I couldn’t stand it. The mouse was too large and oddly shaped to sit comfortably in my hand.
Thankfully, Razer has now released the Naga 2012. While the basic design has remained the same, this new updated 2012 model now includes 3 different interchangeable grips for the mouse. These 3 grips drastically alter the size, shape, and feel of the mouse.
One of these grips, called “Claw Grip”, is actually very close to the feel of the original Microsoft Mouse I’ve been using for years. As an added bonus, the 12 thumb keys are turning out to be useful in other unexpected applications as well. The keypad works great for quick number entry on online forms and for softphone / Skype dialing. If you’ve tried the original Naga in the past and disliked the shape, or if you’re simply in the market for a gaming mouse with an adjustable size and grip, I can’t recommend the Razer Naga 2012 enough.
