The Razer Naga Pro is an amazing mouse for MMO gaming. It's a wireless version of the Razer Naga Trinity with minor aesthetic changes. It comes with hot-swappable side panels that have two, six, or 12 buttons, and all buttons are programmable, including the scroll wheel's up/down and left/right inputs. It's well-made, and the virgin grade PFTE feet provide a smooth gliding experience. It has incredibly low click latency, and the sensor has a wide CPI range, but its performance can be inconsistent due to the high CPI variation. People with medium or large-sized hands should feel comfortable using it, but it may be too big for small hands with any grip type.

Our Verdict

8.5 Office/Multimedia

The Razer Naga Pro is excellent for office use. It feels well-made, and it's very comfortable to use if you have a medium or large-sized hand. There are a ton of buttons you can program to help with your workflow, including the left/right tilt on the scroll wheel. Sadly, the scroll wheel can't be unlocked for infinite scrolling.

Pros
  • Very comfortable for medium or large-sized hands.
  • A ton of programmable buttons.
  • Excellent build quality.
Cons
  • Scroll wheel doesn't offer infinite scrolling.
8.1 Video Games (FPS)

The Razer Naga Pro is great for FPS gaming. It has incredibly low click latency, a wide CPI range, and you can adjust the sensitivity in small steps. It feels well-made, and the feet help the mouse glide smoothly. Unfortunately, it's on the heavy side, and there's no weight optimization.

Pros
  • Very comfortable for medium or large-sized hands.
  • Incredibly low click latency.
  • Smooth gliding experience.
Cons
  • Heavy.
8.9 Video Games (MMO)

The Razer Naga Pro is amazing for MMO gaming. It comes with a 12-button side panel, and there are a ton of programmable inputs. It's well-made and comfortable to use for most hand sizes with a palm or claw grip. The click latency is incredibly low, and it has a very wide CPI range.

Pros
  • Very comfortable for medium or large-sized hands.
  • A ton of programmable buttons.
  • Incredibly low click latency.
  • 12-button side panel.
Cons
  • Software not available on macOS.
6.8 Ultra-Light Gaming

The Razer Naga Pro is okay for ultra-light gaming, but it's not designed for this use. It's heavy and there's no weight optimization. Still, it has low click latency, a high max polling rate, and the feet provide a smooth gliding experience.

Pros
  • Incredibly low click latency.
Cons
  • Heavy.
8.3 Travel

The Razer Naga Pro is great for travel. It's on the bulkier side, but it has a slot to store the USB receiver. It can connect to your computer via Bluetooth, and it has onboard memory, so you can use your custom profiles even on a computer without the dedicated software.

Pros
  • Very comfortable for medium or large-sized hands.
  • Excellent build quality.
  • Connects wirelessly via Bluetooth or receiver.
Cons
  • Heavy.
  • Software not available on macOS.

The Razer Naga Pro looks a lot like the Razer Naga Trinity, with some slight changes. It has a gamer-oriented look when you use the six or 12-button side panels, but looks more like a standard office mouse with the two-button panel. It's matte black and there are new glossy accents near the scroll wheel compared to the Trinity. There are RGB zones on the scroll wheel, the logo on the back, and the side panel, and you can customize them to any color.

This mouse is heavy and not suggested for ultra-light gaming. There's no weight optimization, but the two-button side panel is about 7g lighter than the 12-button side panel.

Build Quality

The Razer Naga Pro has an excellent build quality. It's made out of solid matte plastic, and even though the scroll wheel wobbles slightly, it's hardly noticeable and wobbles a lot less than the Razer Naga Trinity. The virgin grade PTFE feet are of great quality and the mouse glides around smoothly.

The Razer Naga Pro has a very comfortable right-handed design. It's made for a palm or claw grip due to its tall back, and most people should feel comfortable using it, except those with small hands. The two and six-button panels have a nice, textured grip, but the 12-button panel doesn't. It also has a pinky rest and feels much like the Razer Naga Trinity.

The Razer Naga Pro has incredible wireless versatility. You can connect to it either through Bluetooth or its proprietary receiver. It comes with a USB extender that allows you to place the receiver closer to your mouse to optimize performance. Razer advertises the battery life at 150 hours on Bluetooth and 100 hours through the receiver, but this isn't something we test for. The scroll wheel blinks in red when the battery has less than 5% left. Unlike the Razer Viper Ultimate, it doesn't come with a charging dock, so you have to charge it with the micro-USB cable.

The feet are outstanding. They provide a very smooth gliding experience on a desk or mousepad. The feet are thick enough that they don't cause scratching. It doesn't come with extra feet in the box, and there aren't any third-party ones available, but if you find some, let us know.

The Razer Naga Pro's sensor has a very wide CPI range and you can adjust the sensitivity in small increments. Unfortunately, it undershoots a lot more than other mice with the Focus+ sensor, such as the Razer Basilisk Ultimate. There's significantly more undershoot when moving the mouse at a fast speed than at a slow speed. You can adjust the polling rate to 125Hz, 500Hz, or 1000Hz.

The Razer Naga Pro has an incredible number of buttons. The scroll wheel's click, left/right inputs, and up/down are all programmable, as well as the left and right-clicks, and the CPI switch buttons below the scroll wheel. You get an extra layer of programmable inputs with the HyperShift button, which you can assign to any button. The left button can be reprogrammed, but the left click action has to be assigned to another button first.

It comes with two extra hot-swappable side panels. The six-button side panel has a more straightforward design with two rows of three buttons than the hexagonal design on the Razer Naga Trinity. The two-button side panel is aimed at FPS gamers but can also be used in the office.

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

We tested the Razer Naga Pro in black, which is the only color available. You can see the label of our unit here.

Compared To Other Mice

The Razer Naga Pro is one of the best MMO gaming mice we've tested thanks to its 12-button side panel and the ability to record a ton of macros. It's better-built, offers a smoother gliding experience, and has lower click latency than most mice. However, it's on the pricey side, and if you don't need a wireless option, there are cheaper wired choices available, such as the Corsair Scimitar Pro RGB or the Razer Naga Trinity. Also see our recommendations for the best MMO mice, the best gaming mice, and the best wireless gaming mice.

Razer Naga Trinity

The Razer Naga Pro is better than the Razer Naga Trinity for most uses, but they're very similar mice. The Pro is wireless, feels better-built, and the feet offer a better gliding experience. However, the Trinity is wired, has a lower lift-off distance, and the sensor has less overshoot.

Razer Basilisk Ultimate

The Razer Naga Pro is better for most uses than the Razer Basilisk Ultimate. The Naga Pro has many more side buttons for MMO gaming, it has lower click latency, and the feet provide a better gliding experience. However, the Ultimate is lighter, has a lower lift-off distance, and the sensor has less CPI variation, making it a better choice for FPS or ultra-light gaming.

Logitech G604 LIGHTSPEED

The Razer Naga Pro is better for most uses than the Logitech G604 LIGHTSPEED. The Razer has a built-in battery so it comes with a cable, the feet are better, there are six more side buttons, and it has lower click latency. The Logitech requires one AA battery and it has a much wider CPI range and lower lift-off distance.

Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED

The Razer Naga Pro is better than the Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED. The Razer has Bluetooth support, the feet provide a better gliding experience, and it has more programmable buttons. However, the Logitech has a wider CPI range, lower lift-off distance, and less CPI variation.

Corsair Scimitar Pro RGB

The Corsair Scimitar Pro RGB is a slightly better MMO gaming mouse, but the Razer Naga Pro is better for other uses. The Corsair has a lower lift-off distance, it feels better-built, and it's better-suited for most hand sizes and grip types. However, the Razer has more total programmable inputs, lower click latency, wider CPI range, and the feet are better.

Logitech G600 MMO Gaming

The Razer Naga Pro is better than the Logitech G600 MMO Gaming. The Razer is wireless, the feet provide a better gliding experience, and it has a much wider CPI range. However, the Logitech has a lower lift-off distance, less CPI variation, and the G HUB software is available on macOS.
