Razer is no stranger when it comes to updating old mice, and today, the company has unveiled an update to the Naga Hex, the aptly named Naga Hex V2. While it still retains most of its predecessor’s features, the V2 now has seven – instead of six – programmable buttons arranged in a more circular pattern on the side of the mouse.
Aside from the extra seventh button, the Naga Hex V2 is still very much a MOBA-centric gaming mouse. It has sensitivity of up to 16,000dpi, 1,000Hz polling rate, 1ms response time, a rubberised thumb grip, and of course, Chroma lighting – it wouldn’t be a Razer product without some RGB lighting.
While the new side buttons of the Naga Hex V2 look much cleaner than its predecessor, adding a seventh button to the mouse is…quite a peculiar move. See, the word “hex” can be translated to six in Greek, which is probably why the original Naga Hex only had six buttons – it’s really quite a smart word play. Regardless, MOBA players may find the extra seven button an advantage – more buttons is usually a good thing.
Although the Razer Naga Hex V2 has just been announced, it can now be purchased from Razer’s Malaysia online store. Retailing at RM399, it is not quite an affordable mouse, but MOBA gamers may still be interested in the Naga Hex V2.
