    Hello, as the title says, I request a Razer Naga Epic Chroma with an Optical Sensor, such as the one in the Razer Basilisk/Deathadder Elite.

    Why do I want this? Well.. around three/four weeks ago, my companion of 4 years, my Naga Epic Chroma, started to warp and freeze almost without end. It took me ages to be able to go to something I wanted to click on my screen. I needed a new mouse, desperately, and I needed one that would let me set the dpi for my games such as Overwatch, where muscle memory is key.

    I had enough zSilver to grab a $20 USD off on a Razer mouse, and there was a free shipping on all orders promotion going on, so I ordered the Basilisk.

    While the Basilisk is a GREAT mouse(read the review I posted earlier in the week on Insider), I find that I have much more discomfort with my hand/wrist than I did with my Naga Epic Chroma.

    I realize that an optical sensor requires more power(correct me if I'm wrong on that one please) but unless you are using it all day long, why would you need a massive amount of battery charge life, if you only use it 5-8 hours max, and sometimes less than an hour a day? There is a charging cord that goes with it already, so you would not need to stop using it completely, and with the newer tech out there, it would probably be possible to replace outdated tech with smaller, lighter components, put in a larger battery if needed, and maybe even have the room to put some weights inside of the mouse to adjust it, like you can with some other mice.

    Here are some things I consider to be must-have-functions/features:

    • Optical Sensor, at least up to the standard(I think) of 8,200 dpi.(I can't imagine why anyone would need over 2-4 thousand dpi, even with a couple of 4k screens, although I realize there is always that 1% that uses 16,000 dpi)
    • Keep the same shape as the current Naga Epic Chroma.
    • Chroma lighting that is accurate for games such as Overwatch.(Example: My Basilisk goes pink on McCree, where my Naga Epic Chroma goes red. On Soldier 76 my Basilisk goes blue and my Naga Epic Chroma goes some tan/pink skin-like color.)
    • 12 button thumb grid.
    • Tilt Scroll Wheel.
    • Sensitivity Adjusters behind scroll wheel.
    • Wireless mode, with and optional cable plug-in for wired gameplay, such as the Naga Epic Chroma currently has.
    • Adaptive Frequency Technology
    • eSports-level quality for both wireless and wired performance, with no change(if possible) in performance when going between the 2 modes.
    Anything extra would be a bonus.

    In summary, I would like to see a Naga Epic Chroma that can be used both in wired wireless mode in eSports, whether it is for MOBAs, MMOs, FPS, or anything else!

    Please consider, Razer! If this mouse became reality I would use nothing else!

    I'd be happy with the optical sensor that is in the Atheris.

    @PTSinger yeah that would be work great too!

    Yes! The current Naga uses the same sensor as the Mamba TE if I'm correct. In fact, the Laser sensor is the only thing preventing me from buying a Naga.

    Yeah it does, also I think it uses the same as the Mamba, because my brother had one, and we had the same exact problems on the last days of using our mice(My Naga Epic Chroma and his Mamba). Warping/Skipping/Freezing/Locking onto the y axis all over the place. I think the Lancehead has the same sensor too, unfortunately.
    If they replaced the sensors in those to either the Deathadder Elite's sensor, or the Atheris' sensor(optical up to 8,200 if I remember correctly), and added in the Adaptive Frequency Technology, they would be perfect!

    The Lancehead Wireless uses the laser sensor, the Lancehead TE uses an optical. I honestly don't know why Razer is still bothering with laser sensors. Every laser mice they have made has always been a failure when it comes to performance.

    I think it has something to do with power consumption. From what I've heard laser sensors require less power than optical sensors. I think this is the reason that they use them for wireless, with the exception of the Atheris, which had Chroma lighting traded for an optical sensor. I understand the need for the lower power usage when traveling, but it would still be REALLY nice to have an optical sensor in a wireless mouse WITH Chroma lighting.

    I'm choosing the "Indifferent" option, but only because it's not including the non epic version. If you also included the Naga Chroma (wired) version, then I'll be all over it. hehehe

    I hope they will just remake all of the Naga series and replace the laser sensors with optical. Maybe upgrade the switches to the most recent and best, update the Chroma, give the series Synapse 3.0 support, keep everything else the same.

    I completely forgot that I had mentioned it in my dream setup for that giveaway.

    i'd prefer a hardwired naga chroma with the sensor of the basilisk, but i guess we're in the same boat in general.
