Software

Over my last few Razer reviews I have talked in depth about the ups and downs of their Synapse 2.0 software. There are two main issues with the software that drive me up the wall and have caused a lot of backlash from the community. First when installing the software it requires a reboot of your PC, the same happens when you need to update as well, something that most current mouse software doesn’t require. The other issue is the need to sign to the software and the fact it needs the internet to do that. This is related to the cloud features but for those without internet or who don’t want to create an account it can be frustrating.

Moving on though, I really do love the Synapse 2.0 software’s layout. Additionally I love that the software integrates with every Razer product made recently means I only need one program to control all of my devices. You can swap between devices along the bottom with their photos. The first page you will land on with the Naga is a page that gets right to the point with a photo of the Naga with options for each button in the photo. Each one can be selected and you can change the buttons function to one of the MANY options Razer has given us.

The next page you can set your sensitivity as well as polling and acceleration. Seeing that a lot of people look down on acceleration, it’s interesting to see this as an option at all. Personally I think the more adjustments available the better.

software 2

The lighting page has only a few options and all of them are on and off options for all three of the Naga’s backlit areas.

The calibration page was something that caught me off guard. Razer has included an option to tune the Naga to specific mouse pads as well as an option to set your lift off distance. As someone who lifts their mouse while gaming, this makes me very happy.

The macro page lets you record all of your macros with or without delays in between key presses and then bind them to a button on the Naga.

The Add On page is on the software for all Razer products but with the Naga we actually see a Naga add on. This is where you turn on or off the MMO overlay for in game. As you can see from the images below from Razer’s website you can set specific spells to each button and see icons to go with each one. No other mouse has a feature like this, this is really what sets the Naga apart from other MMO mice.

Any sign to the dreaded "double-click" issue they tend to develop?
