Product on Review: Razer Naga Hex V2
Manufacturer: Razer
Street Price: UK: 69.99, US: $79.99

The Razer Naga Hex was originally conceived as a pure MOBA mouse that gave instant access to 6 side buttons, and for some it was and still is a valid mouse to be using. Refreshing that MOBA mouse amidst a growing storm of MOBA fans, whether it is DOTA2 or LOL, is a wise decision. So we get the Hex V2. Yes, with seven buttons, Hex... with seven buttons. Aside from maybe the initial numerical reference, maybe they could argue that Hex now refers to a commmon ability found within MOBAs?

The 7 mechanical buttons form a complete ring around the thumb resting point with a soft rubber grip at its centre. The Hex V2 brings in other modern revisions that are contemporary with other Razer mice, including the lush textured surface that provides good grip and is far more pleasing to touch than the cringe worthy slippery-velvet rubber coating (maybe it is only me that doesn't like this?) that is still unfortunately found on many gaming products. Razer have updated the sensor too, using the true 16,000 DPI 5G laser sensor as found on the Razer Mamba TE and the Naga Chroma, both of which were awesome. Of course, it wouldn't be a new Razer product without Chroma lighting. Though it would appear that people are getting the point now and Razer didn't feel the need to name it the 'Razer Naga Hex V2 Chroma', which would be quite the mouthful.

Overview by Razer
Created specifically for MOBA gamers, the Razer Naga Hex V2 comes with a 7 button mechanical thumb wheel, positioned in a way that ensures you never misclick. The thumb wheel was designed to position buttons equidistant from the thumb, all of which are programmable, giving quick access to multiple commands. At the center of the thumb wheel is a rubberized thumb grip, which provides a solid grip on the mouse, which is essential for the fast twitch movements needed in MOBA games.
