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 an extremely consistent and accurate sensor. 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

7.9 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.
8.4 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.
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.

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. If you're interested in a similar MMO gaming mouse with a rest for your pinky and your thumb, check out the Redragon M913 Impact Elite.

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. If you're looking for a wired alternative with a large number of programmable inputs, including special inputs like pressure-sensitive buttons and gyroscopic tilt gestures, check out the Swiftpoint Z.

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 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.

The Razer Naga Pro has incredibly low and consistent click latency. It delivers an extremely responsive-feeling experience in-game. The latency is significantly higher and much less stable when using a Bluetooth connection, but this is normal. A Bluetooth connection isn't recommended for gaming, especially reaction-based or competitive games.

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 a standout choice for MMO gaming due 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 many competing MMO-focused mice. However, it's on the pricey side, and if you don't need a wireless option, there are cheaper wired choices available, like the Corsair SCIMITAR RGB ELITE 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 similar mice. The Pro is wireless, feels better-built, and the feet offer a better gliding experience. However, the Trinity is wired and has a lower lift-off distance.

Razer Naga X

The Razer Naga Pro and the Razer Naga X are both excellent MMO mice. You can use the Pro wirelessly, and it performs better overall. You can adjust the Pro's CPI range more precisely, and its click latency is much lower. If you play various types of games, it has three swappable panels with different button layouts, while the X only has the 12-button one. However, if you don't like the feel of a heavy mouse, the X is significantly lighter.

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.

Razer Basilisk Ultimate

The Razer Naga Pro is better for a wider range of uses than the Razer Basilisk Ultimate, but the Basilisk Ultimate is a better pick for FPS gaming. The Naga Pro has many more side buttons for MMO gaming, it has lower click latency, and the feet provide a better gliding experience. Both mice have a scroll wheel with L/R tilt inputs, but only the Basilisk Ultimate's wheel also unlocks for free-scrolling. On the other hand, the Ultimate is lighter and has a lower lift-off distance.

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.

SteelSeries Aerox 9 Wireless

The Razer Naga Pro and the SteelSeries Aerox 9 Wireless are both wireless MMO gaming mice. The Razer has two additional buttons, and you can adjust the CPI more precisely within a slightly wider range. It also has significantly lower click latency. On the other hand, the SteelSeries is significantly lighter, and its software is compatible with Windows and macOS, while the Razer software is only compatible with Windows.

Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED

The Razer Naga Pro and the Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED are two very different mice meant for different uses. The Logitech is for FPS gaming, with three side buttons, including a sniper button and two additional buttons alongside the left click. It also has a wider CPI range, practically no CPI variation, and a lower lift-off distance. On the other hand, the Razer has three swappable side panels depending on the type of game you're playing, with one including 12 side buttons for MMO gaming.

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 programmable inputs, lower click latency, wider CPI range, and better feet.

Corsair SCIMITAR RGB ELITE

The Razer Naga Pro is a more versatile all-around gaming mouse, while the Corsair SCIMITAR RGB ELITE is an outstanding MMO mouse. You can use the Razer wired or wirelessly with its USB receiver or Bluetooth, it has swappable side panels with different button layouts, and much better click latency. On the other hand, the Corsair is a wired mouse with an adjustable 12-button side panel, a more precisely adjustable CPI, and a lower lift-off distance. It also has software compatible with Windows and macOS, which the Razer lacks. Both mice are well-suited for all grip types, but the Razer isn't suitable for small hands.

Redragon M913 Impact Elite

The Razer Naga Pro is a better wireless MMO gaming mouse than the Redragon M913 Impact Elite. It's lighter and feels sturdier. It has a more flexible charging cable, mouse feet that glide more smoothly, a wider CPI range, a more precisely adjustable CPI, and much lower click latency. It also has multiple modular side panels for different game genres, including a 12-button panel. It has Bluetooth support, which the Redragon lacks, but unfortunately, it has a very high CPI variation. Comparatively, the Redragon has resting surfaces for your thumb, ring finger, and pinky, while the Razer only has a ring finger/pinky rest.

UtechSmart VENUS Pro

The Razer Naga Pro is a better wireless MMO gaming mouse than the UtechSmart VENUS Pro. The Razer is lighter and feels sturdier. It has a more flexible paracord-like charging cable, mouse feet that glide more smoothly, and modular side panels with different button configurations. Performance-wise, it has a higher maximum CPI, a more precisely adjustable CPI, Bluetooth support, and much lower click latency. On the other hand, the UtechSmart has a thumb rest and a charging cable with a newer USB-C port, compared to the cable on the Razer, which has a Micro-USB port. Neither mouse is suitable for small hands using any grip type, but the Razer is more accommodating for a wider range of hand sizes overall.

EVGA X15

The Razer Naga Pro and the EVGA X15 are both MMO gaming mice, but the Razer Naga Pro is wireless. You can connect the mouse via Bluetooth or with its USB receiver, or you can use it with its paracord-like charging cable for a wired connection. It comes with three hot-swappable side panels, so you can customize the number of side buttons you want, and it's much lighter than the EVGA. It also has better click latency no matter how you connect it. On the other hand, the EVGA has a lower lift-off distance, and you can set its maximum polling rate to 8000Hz.
