Razer Naga V2 Pro review: Versatile performance

Razer Naga V2 Pro

If you're looking for a gaming mouse that can do it all, the Razer Naga V2 Pro closely fits that bill. It's wireless, comfortable, has a cool scroll wheel, and swappable side panels. I do think it's a bit heavy at 134g, but I got used to the weight after a while.

Quick specs

  • 2.4GHz Razer HyperSpeed, Bluetooth, or wired with braided USB-C
  • Up to 150 hours (HyperSpeed), up to 300 hours (Bluetooth)
  • Max 30,000 DPI
  • Can wireless charge with Razer Mouse Dock Pro and Charging Puck (separate purchase)

Unlike other mice, the Naga V2 Pro's swappable side panels stand out. I can't think of any other mice that can do that (apart from Razer's other Naga models). Most offer switch swapping, but this Razer mouse takes it up another notch. You get to choose from a standard two-button layout, six keys, and a numpad from 1 to 12. The last is perfect for MMOs which require tons of buttons, while I've been using the six-key panel for playing Dota 2.

However, more often than not, I don't find myself actually pressing on these keys, since my muscle memory is trained to use the keyboard. But I did make an effort to use the buttons to activate my items, and it felt really natural. If I use the mouse for maybe another month or so, I'd probably get very comfortable. It's also easy to press with my thumb, the buttons are tactile, and you won't accidentally hit two buttons at once. At least, I didn't when I was testing. While you can go up to 30,000 DPI, I found my sweet spot of 1,600 DPI remains optimal for most of my games.

You can remap the side buttons using Razer's Synapse software, but it's Windows only. You can also change the polling rate, down from the 1,000Hz maximum, which will also extend battery life. One thing that impressed me was the HyperScroll Pro Wheel, which has five different default scroll modes and a custom one. The wheel can go from free wheeling to a very tight scroll to a high-speed scroll. My favourite is one without any clicks. Lastly, I'm not a fan of the weight, and while I got used to it, the super-light Razer Viper V2 Pro is still my go-to mouse, despite lacking the Naga's cool side-panel buttons.

At S$289, the Razer Naga V2 Pro is pretty pricey for a mouse. But it's a great all-rounder mouse if you can handle the heft, which isn't quite ideal for FPS gaming, but still usable. For MMO and MOBAs, this mouse is pretty darn good. Get it from Razer, Shopee, or Amazon (where you can get it at S$236 because it's from the USA).
