Ultimate Wireless Gaming Mouse 08/15/2012
This review is from: Razer Naga Epic Rechargable Wireless MMO PC Gaming Mouse
Best wireless mouse I have ever used, par none. I was about to give up on using wireless mice to game after countless duds (regular AND gaming types), all of which were choppy.
But I hate wires when gaming just as much as unreliable wireless so I kept looking. I gave this a try because of the dual-mode wired/wireless function. Absolutely love it, even wired mode!
Solid wireless connection. Can change poll rate to max battery or max performance.
REALLY smooth mouse movements with precision and accuracy.
Software lets me customize advanced macro options for the 12 side buttons. Love the granular performance tuning, including adjusting different DPI's for X and Y axis.
The color-change LED lights are wicked sick.
It feels so incredible in my hand, comfortable is an understatement. Plus you can adjust the size and feel to your liking.
NOT just for MMO's; the superior control helps my frag-count ;)
Also, it's solid, sturdy and very well packaged.
First one was a dud, lasted less than a week before becoming non-functional. Luckily, RAZER customer support was prompt and helpful. They sent me a brand NEW one after RMA'ing the first.
It's become too common for companies to cheap out and replace defective hardware with refurb'd garbage despite paying for new product originally as well as ship-back costs.
RAZER customer support really came through and won me over despite my initial reservations with the failed unit and reading RAZER product horror stories.
But hey, lemons happen and Ive been rewarded by giving them another chance. My replacement has been solid for almost a year and a half and counting, not a single problem whatsoever.
The biggest con is how difficult it is to use regular mice after getting used to this beast. I hate using other computers now after being spoiled by this mouse LOL
Kinda nitpicky but it is annoying that the mouse won't function at all until you load the drivers manually. Generic drivers don't work so installing them requires a second mouse unless your a wizard with keyboard navigation.
Also, it's really expensive but I got it as a B-day gift so I didn't pay for it. However, after using it for so long, I've determined that it would definitely be worth buying again myself if I needed a second one or if my current one bites the dust.
Despite a few quirks, this mouse is absolutely fabulous. Gaming mice DO make a difference but wireless is also essential if you hate cords like me. The Naga Epic isn't just one of the only effective mice with both gaming AND wireless features, but it's an excellent mouse all-around.
