This review is from: Razer Naga 2014 MMO Gaming Mouse
Pros: - Left and right buttons work better than on the old versions.
- The buttons placed in the middle below the scroll wheel are easier to reach and use compared to the old version.
- Haven't gotten the issue where when you click once it double clicks yet.
Cons: - The side buttons click much easier and you will accidentally click them quite often.
- This version of the mouse fits horribly in my hand. As a man with shorter fingers than most, I can't reach the front 1 2 3 buttons on the side of the mouse without changing positions on the mouse. It also forces me into a different grip style so I can reach the left and right buttons easier. The old version was a bit smaller and allowed me to easily reach every button the mouse.
- Sometimes the scroll wheel just doesn't work for whatever reason. This may be a problem specific to me, but I'm not paying to send it in to have it fixed.
Other Thoughts: - The software isn't great or convenient in any way, but is usable.
- I'm pretty disappointed in Razer over this mouse. I bought the 2014 edition because I thought it would really just be the old version slightly updated with mechanical buttons, but that's not what they released. It's a completely different mouse with a completely different feel. Unfortunately, I wish I could return this product for a refund and just buy a new old style Naga. I know that will never happen though.
- I hope they release another mouse for people with smaller hands like myself. If not, I'll just have to find another company that does make one.
- If you have bigger hands, this mouse will be great for you if you can get passed the other problems I've listed.
Pros: This keyboard is gorgeous. It is really simple and understated which is exactly what I was looking for. I am switching from an original Logitech G15 to this. First of all the Red switches are quiet. Almost as quiet as my old keyboard. That was a surprise, because I thought they would be much louder than they are. The keys are very sturdy and extremely consistent. This is the first mechanical keyboard I've used and it does take some getting used to, but once you're used to typing on it it's great.
Cons: I don't like the LEDs on the CAPS lock, scroll lock, and windows lock keys. They are very bright and hard not to look at, especially in the dark. However, I never use them or have them on anyways, so it's not a problem. The cable was pretty difficult to plug in as well. It's a tight fit in the back. You have to force it in pretty good, but it does fit.
Other Thoughts: If you're coming from a non-mechanical keyboard, the switch is not as scary as you would think. I can't speak for the blue or brown switches, but the red switches are amazing. They feel lightweight, but sturdy, and are about as easy to type on as a non-mechanical keyboard. Typing is a little more audible than you might be used to, but it is not nearly as obnoxious as you might think. It is the most satisfying keyboard I have ever used to type with.
The "stealth" keys are absolutely gorgeous. I thought I might not like them at first, but they are easy to look at if you have to, and easy to ignore if you don't. I recommend using PS/2 mode if you can. It gives you increased access to the keyboard (repeat rates) without taking up a USB slot. Couldn't ask for much more than that. The keyboard does sit a little higher than most other keyboards. I don't even use the lifts in the back. However, I like my keyboards to lay a little flatter than most people prefer I think. The keyboard sits normally at about a 10 degree angle. With the lifts up, its about double that. Possible a little more. Also, if you're going to try PS/2 mode, try shutting down your PC plugging it in to the PS/2 port, and starting up from there. That's the only way I got mine to work. I'm pretty sure it was because of my motherboard though.
Pros: - The texture of the mouse is perfect. It feels great in your hand.
- The weight of the mouse is perfect.
The scroll wheel feels great and is quiet as well.
- The left and right buttons feel nice when you press them.
- Although unnecessary, the LEDs are nice.
- Setup was extremely simple
Cons: - The mouse randomly stops working randomly for some reason. I have to unplug it and plug it back in to get it working again.
- They added too many buttons on the side. There is only 3 or 4 of the 9 that are actually easy to navigate to and press. The rest are incredibly inconvenient and difficult to use.
- I feel like the mouse tracks weird. I don't know how to explain that at all, but when I'm using it I feel like the pointer isn't where it's supposed to be in relation to the mouse movement. I've tried tweaking the DPI settings and report rate settings, but it just never feels right.
Other Thoughts: The software is pretty useless right now, but that can be updated.
If you don't use a claw grip, I wouldn't bother buying this at all. Your middle finger will go over the edge of the right mouse button if you use anything but a claw grip. I have small hands as well, in case anyone was wondering.
Overall, pretty disappointed with this mouse. I was looking for something with extra buttons on the side to replace my G500. I really don't like Razer products, so I figured I'd try this out. I figured Corsair has never let me down in the past, why not? I will be sending it back before the software update releases. Even if the software was amazing, this mouse would still not be worth the money. It by no means delivers what it advertises.
