For the past week or so I’ve noticed some strange things going on with my mouse. I’m unable to middle click without pressing it pretty firmly and sometimes I’ll move my mouse and it’ll act like it’s hitting the bottom of a screen in the middle of a window. I have come to terms that I need to replace it. I bought my Razer Naga about 2 and a half years ago. I was playing WoW fairly heavily and did not care for using my “1” through “=” hot keys. At the same time I definitely didn’t want to continue being a “clicker”. So I figured, Razer makes good products, let’s try out the Naga.
Razer Naga Molten
I want to start by saying that this has to be one of the best investments I’ve ever made. Having the 12 keys on the side has really changed not only the way I play games but how I use my computer. All of the customization that’s available for the buttons is really what makes this mouse yours. I also went for the special edition Molten version with the pulsating cracks. The thing just looks mean and I absolutely adore it. I started to think that 2 and a half years really isn’t that long but this thing has been under heavy use ever since it’s purchase. I literally spend nearly all of my free time playing video games on my PC. So alas, I think it’s time to rest. And since I wouldn’t dare use another mouse but a Naga for gaming, I’m looking to replace it with one of the new Naga’s that Razer has made available.
Razer Naga Hex
Since I’ve spent my fair share of time having the 12 buttons on the side so when I saw that they were releasing the Hex I thought, “Please don’t let this be the new Naga!” It turned out that it was designed for MOBA players but would not ultimately be THE new Naga. Although it’s a cool concept, I have a hard time excepting change. Not on the buttons but the swirly green design on it. Part of the reason why I bought the Molten version of the Naga is because my favorite color is red. So although not having a red mouse isn’t a deal breaker, it strikes huge positive points in my book if it is.
Razer Naga Epic Chroma
I have decided that I want to go all out and get the best of what Razer has to offer. The Epic Chroma is not only sleek and lets you choose basically any color you want, it’s wireless. Now I know I’m taking gamble with it being wireless but I don’t doubt Razers’s ability to make a quality product that gamers will actually want to buy. Another great thing about it is the fact that it’s rechargeable. You can attach a wire to it from the front so you can charge and game or you dock it to the dock that comes with it! All in all, I’m more excited than sad about having to replace my mouse. Is there any one peripheral you absolutely can’t live without? Let me know in the comment section below.

Slade’s life was turned to the Darkside when his father gave him a gift in 1985. He was presented with the leader of the Decepticons, Megatron. Since then, Slade has become a collector of the robots in disguise.
The only other thing that comes close to Slade’s love of Transformers is Star Wars. He has met a few of the cast over the years. Slade’s one goal in life is to meet with George Lucas and just discuss movies with him.
