Razer Naga Trinity
Gaming Mouse (Wired)
Three classic Razer mice in one neat little package? Yeah, that sums up the new Razer Naga Trinity which thanks to interchangeable side plates you can get the feel and functionality of the Razer DeathAdder Elite, Razer Hex V2, and of course the Naga. Aka the mouse with the bajillion side-buttons designed for the bajillions buttons you need in MMOs like World of Warcraft. In execution the Naga Trinity is a brilliant move, because all three of the Razer mice described were designed for different types of games – shooters, MOBAs, and MMOs. And so, if you still play WoW, dabble in a bit of DOTA 2, League of Legends, or Heroes of the Storm. Relax with a few rounds of Overwatch, or 50 or so turns in Civilization VI – then the Naga Trinity might be for you.
And for reviewers that have half a dozen completely different games in Steam on heavy rotation.
If you’re wondering if the whole interchangeable side panel thing was a gimmick and in execution a little flimsy and unresponsive, you can set aside those concerns now. Thanks to the sturdy design that uses powerful magnets and exceptional build quality, the Naga Trinity can quite easily become three mice-in-one. Sturdy mice too. In fact, the panel that represents the traditional DeathAdder Elite design looks and feels identical, right down to the textured grip. The only real difference being a slightly heavier mouse with the Naga Trinity coming in a little heftier than its counterparts at 120g.
Having tested the three different panels across Overwatch, Heroes of the Storm, and Diablo III (yeah, yeah, I kind of live in Battle.net I know), no doubt the additional buttons take some getting used to. But, after a while they become second nature. And for those stuck somewhere in the middle, it’s often easier to split numerical MOBA duties across the keyboard and mouse.

The Razer Naga Trinity follows in a long line of Razer products with great build quality, which is especially important thanks to the rather bold design decision to go three-in-one. In terms of features and tech, it features the same impressive Razer-branded 5G optical sensor seen in other products, and with the Razer Synapse 3 Software (which is now in a pretty good state) customising the DPI settings and profiles and programming is intuitive and responsive. So much so that when switching out the different side-panels the software updates and responds almost instantly.
Naturally all this functionality comes at a cost, literally, with the Razer Naga Trinity falling on the high-end of the pricing spectrum. But when you factor in the core interchangeable design it begins to look well worth it, especially if you play MOBAs in addition to more action-oriented shooters. And everything in between. The core MMO design of the Naga remains in-tact, so the new Trinity design is a welcome one. Versatile and impressive.
