It seems that Razer might have finally dialed in just the right amount of mouse buttons. The Razer Naga Hex gets its name from the 6 thumb buttons located on the side of the elite gaming mouse. The buttons aren’t programmable but can be set to trigger either the number pad or keyboard’s 1 through 6 keys via a physical toggle switch on the underside of the Hex. The buttons are centered around an interchangeable thumb rest for which Razer includes three types of different heights. Your sensitivity and other settings are saved to the Razer Synapse Cloud. Settings are then automatically transferred to whichever computer you are playing on at the time.
The Razer Hex uses the same 3.5G sensor found in the original Naga and it also retains many of the same high resolution features. The sensor is not to be mistaken for the dual sensor setup found in the Mamba 4G. The mouse buttons, including the side buttons have also been changed to mechanical switches. These switches can handle up to 250 clicks per second and should provide years of service. Mechanical switches are highly sought after for the very satisfactory metal on metal click as the key is pressed.
