Razer SW:TOR Edition Wireless Gaming Mouse Review
Tim Mammatt / 5 years ago
Razer are a well known global gaming brand that has brought us high quality, feature rich products, such as the world’s first true 7.1 surround sound gaming headset and the Naga Hex (currently our favourite mouse). They also produce licensed peripherals from the likes of Battlefield 3, StarCraft 2 and Mass Effect 3, that often sport their colour scheme and logos – and even features that would help when playing. Today we are taking a look at the Razer Star Wars: The Old Republic Edition Wireless Naga Gaming Mouse.
Any Razer fanboy/girl would know that the Nage range of mice are primarily aimed at RPG players so it makes perfect sense for Razer to select the Naga as their basis for the SW:TOR edition gaming mouse. The 12 additional side buttons suit SW:TORs 12 slots for hotkeys (1 through = on the keyboard), so would make it much easier to play and possibly reduce the amount of use the keyboard gets.
It’s essential to have the best and most suitable gear when playing MMO’s as not only are you often playing for a long period of time, but you are also competing against hundreds, if not thousands of other players for the top ranks and best gear. This means that comfort and functionality must be at it’s best to ensure victory. We’ve seen many mice hit the market recently aimed at RPG players, all boasting that they are the best mouse for the job, so today we’ve got one of Razers’ offering that is meant to cover the most crucial features of an RPG mouse.
As always, let’s check out the spec of the mouse so we know what to expect.
