Razer Naga Hex gaming mouse
Gaming is serious business, and for those who take their frags and RTS strategies seriously, then surely high-end hardware is the name of the game for such gamers. CES 2012 proved to be a potent platform for Razer to continue with their serpentine collection of gaming peripherals, with the latest one being the Razer Naga Hex gaming mouse. Yes sir, their latest gaming mouse will feature half a dozen thumb buttons that was specially designed for MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena), action-RPG and hack and slash genres.
The inspiration behind the Naga Hex? Its predecessor of sorts, the award-winning Razer Naga MMO gaming mouse came with a 12-button thumb grid, so the Razer Naga Hex now sports six large thumb buttons that have been optimized for the user interfaces found in action-RPG and MOBA games.
All of the six mechanical buttons can be bound to specific spells, abilities, items, and other invaluable commands in MOBA games such as League of Legends. This alone paves the way for faster and easier actuation, where a mechanical key infrastructure that uses less force to actuate allows you to have the upper hand in terms of speed over your enemies. This results in you being able to strike them before they can react, pretty much in the same way most snakes attack with lightning fast reflexes. Not only that, with Diablo III more or less ready to roll out in due time (not taking as long as Duke Nukem forever, I hope), you can prepare yourself by getting the Razer Naga Hex beforehand since it is perfect for obsessive clicking in hack and slash games.
Special switches are used in the construction of the Razer Naga Hex’s buttons, where they are able to withstand up to 250 clicks per minute – if you average that out, it amounts to slightly more than 4 clicks a second. Fret not about hyper-clicking though, as the Razer Naga Hex is said to be good for up to a whopping 10 million clicks – that translates to 40,000 minutes, which leads us to 666 hours if you decide to break it down further – now that is a whole lot of clicks (and a diabolical number to boot), so chances are you would settle for a new mouse long before the Naga Hex bites the proverbial dust.
Nice to know the asking price for the Razer Naga Hex gaming mouse is not that high either at just $79.99, where it will ship from the end of this month onwards.
