Razer Naga Hex

The latest addition to Razer’s Naga series, built for MMORPG players the Hex comes in after the popular Razer Naga Molten Edition which featured as many as 12 user programmable buttons on the thumb side of the mouse. The Hex has 6 buttons around the thumb rest, each button placed in a hexagonal fashion around a central nub where the thumb can rest when not frantically pushing away those buttons.

A major improvement of the Hex over the previous models will be the mechanical button feature which dramatically improves usability. One need not apply full pressure on the buttons to register the press, mechanical buttons only require a little amount of push to actuate. Razer mentions that they have been specially optimized for MMORPGs.

Features

  • 6 MOBA/action-RPG optimized mechanical thumb buttons
  • 5600dpi Razer Precision 3.5G Laser Sensor
  • 11 total programmable Hyperesponse buttons

Demo from CES 2012

The previous naga model has 12 buttons on the side, which might be too cumbersome for a gamer to accurately use when in the midst of a game session. Therefore, having just the right number of keys in a comfortable layout seems nicer than having too many keys in a grid layout making you press the wrong keys. When you need to use a button, you only have to move the thumb in one of 6 directions and the central nub will also give it guidance, increasing accuracy.

Razer has included High performance buttons up to 250 clicks per minute and the buttons have been designed to last upto 10 millions clicks. And to top it with a cherry, the Hex will be synced to a cloud server through Razer Synapse 2.0 for firmware upgrades and to store individual user settings. Razer will also be expanding to storing in-game UI settings for MOBA and RPG-players.
