What is immediately noticeable after the first haptic contact: The mouse is not necessarily for small hands perfectly suited. With dimensions of 11.9 x 7.5 x 4.3 cm and a whopping Weight of 134g the Naga looks pretty massive, but also stable and high quality.

That ergonomic design is for right-handed designed, for left-handers with a focus on MMOs the older, but definitely recommendable, Naga Left Handed Edition.

Do you use it? palm gripoffers the roughened surface of the case a secure, non-slip hold, the either two, six or 12 additional buttons on the left side are easily accessible with the thumb and offer a pleasant and clearly perceptible pressure point for excellent feedback.

For the first impression, workmanship and the design we award the maximum number of points. At least if you’re right-handed with normal to large hands and don’t prefer to play FPS with the claw grip.

Connection and technology: Diverse connectivity

The Naga V2 Pro proves to be extreme ready to connect and can either wiredbut also via Bluetooth or HyperSpeed ​​Wireless be operated wirelessly.

When it comes to high-tech, Razer does a lot for their noble mouse: the heart is an operating device 3rd generation optical Focus Pro sensorwhich resolutions up to 30,000 DPI with latencies below 0.2 milliseconds allows.

You will hardly really need such a high value in practice, but that is generally the case with all values high-precision scanning and the possibility almost any surface without losses to use speak clearly for the sensor technology developed by Pixart.

If you like it colorful, activate the Razer Chroma RGB lightingwhich illuminates the snake symbol on the top and the buttons on the left as desired.

That is particularly good for us HyperScroll mouse wheel like which one five preset operating modes as well as a freely programmable mode. Here really all aspects can be from scroll resistance and tactility, to the force expended, which you need to move the wheel one step. The prerequisite for this is the download and installation of the Razer Synapse softwarewhich allows you to really adapt every imaginable aspect of the Naga V2 Pro to your own needs.

Everyday test: One for all?

In the test, the Naga V2 Pro performed as expected no notable weaknessesbut shines especially in games that require the side panel with six or 12 buttons, such as “League of Legends”, “DOTA 2”, “Fortnite” or “Final Fantasy XIV”.

the Mapping the extra action buttons is a tremendous help when selecting actions or items. If you play shooters and fight for fame and glory in CS, Battlefield or Call Of Duty, you can mount the side panel with two buttons. In this case it makes more sense the high weight of the mouse noticeable. However, this disadvantage is overcompensated by the very good sensor and the extraordinary gliding ability.

We connected the gaming mouse to both wired as well as by HyperSpeed ​​wireless.

Differences in speed are not noticeable There are no latencies. We would always prefer the connection via the 2.4 GHz adapter just for the sake of convenience and to prevent cable clutter.

The built The battery should last up to 300 hours, up to 150 with Bluetooth operation. We didn’t exhaust this to the last minute, but we didn’t need a break to charge during the multi-day test.

However, we have also largely on the do without power-guzzling RGB lightingt. But we still have to share a small shortcoming before we get to the conclusion: the Naga V2 Pro can also be alternatively equipped with a Qi-enabled base plate equip and thus wirelessly via the Sold separately Razer Mouse dock chargingn. However, this method costs another 100 euros. We think that’s too much.
