When you open up the packaging for the Razer Naga, you will find a black package that has the Razer logo printed on top. Located inside of the black packaging is a whole bunch of papers - not only does it come with a user manual and stickers to display your "Razer Pride", but it also comes with a certificate of authenticity to prove that the mouse is a real Razer product. You will also find a product catalog that shows off some of the other Razer products. Inside of the user guide, you will find a few stickers that you can place on top of the twelve numbered buttons on the side of the mouse that will help you figure out which button you are about to press before you do and without having to turn your head off of the screen to press it, similar to the bumps on the "F" and "J" keys on your keyboard.
When you pull the mouse out of the package, the first thing that catches your eye is the number pad on the side of the mouse that goes from 1 all the way up to 12 in a 3x4 array. These buttons are all programmable to whatever you may want to have them do, either in your game or using the Razer software. Don't worry about not having your forward and backward buttons on the mouse because they are also located on the same side as the twelve numbered buttons, giving you a total of 14 programmable buttons on the side of your mouse. The Naga still does have a quite impressive ergonomic design to it that will be able to hold your fingers in place while you are playing your games.
The Naga features the same scroll wheel as the Orochi, with the notched, rubber cover to allow your finger to grip onto it easily and scroll through whatever list you may need to go through. As I mentioned above, there are still two buttons on the left hand side of the mouse that are, by default, set up to be your forward and backward buttons in your favorite web browser. The main attraction to the Naga mouse are the twelve programmable buttons on the side of the mouse. By default, these buttons are set up as a number pad, giving you numbers 0-9, as well as the "-" and "=" signs as 11 and 12. There is a switch on the bottom of the mouse that you can switch between "123" and "Num", which on the default level only changes the 12 key between "=" and "+". Also on the bottom of the mouse you will find the 3.5G laser sensor and the Ultraslick Teflon feet that allow the mouse to glide across any surface you have it on.
The Razer Naga mouse has a whole ton of buttons on it, placing it out of the normal realm of gaming mice on the market. Now let's see what the Imperator looks like.
