    Hey everyone,
    I currently own a razer naga mouse from 2012. I noticed that they came out with a new naga with chroma. Since I love my current naga would it be worth it to get the new one. I do own blackwidow chroma so I could sync them. Thanks

    if there is nothing wrong with it and you're trying to be frugal, then no reason to. But if you must adopt the chroma color scheme for the sake of aesthetics, go for it! Future keyboards to be released are going to have different fonts than we are used it and it seems that there will be a new styling with Razer now (especially with all the chroma being released). All my gear is still razer green, but I suppose I'll look into going chroma when I build my own rig. For the sake of collection though and supporting the company, do it! lol

    Cosmetics are important to me. But functionality is top. I have the kraken forged edition so even though it dosent "blend in" the silver looks cool because my razer keyboard and mouse are black. Is there anything different performance wise?

    from what I understand, no difference performance-wise. the epic chroma has lower dpi than the wired but outside of that, it's all aesthetics. side buttons are still mechanical which is a total upgrade over the pre-2012 nagas. the adjustable click force technology is only present on the mamba I believe.

    edit: a newer mouse may mean better performance if you consider wear-and-tear of your current device. but I digress

    In general gaming you wont notice the difference. The lights are a novelty, they loose their charm soon.

    If you need Chroma go for a newer mouse. You won't see much difference in gaming unless your already experiencing issues.

    The upgraded Naga is quite nice. I went from the Naga 2014 to the Naga Chroma, and now that I've been using it a while, I'm glad I did. I just moved the 2014 version to my laptop.

    They didn't just upgrade the chroma coloring through, it also received an upgrade to the sensor, and I find it to be a quite nice addition to the mouse. You could always go onto the Razer site and use their mouse comparison charts to check out the differences for yourself. :)

    Did the side buttons of your mouse hold up? The buttons on my Naga Epic are are chipped away.

    So far, both of my Naga mice are holding up beautifully. The older one looks almost new, it just has that slightly worn look on the finish where it's gotten shiny from the matte finish wearing off slightly. But every mouse I've ever owned over the last 25-30yrs has done that. However, all the buttons are still perfect.

    The newer one still looks completely brand new in all ways.
  11. it depends how much you care about aesthetics. This may have already been said but I would say it is not worth the money to buy something just for the chroma. i love using the Naga at my friends house and I think there is no need for you to get a new mouse when the one you have is great.

    Keep in mind that the newer Naga does have a new sensor and is altogether a better piece of hardware in general. There are reason to upgrade, if those new things matter to you. It's really more of a question of what you value most in in your peripherals, what kind of games you play and also how competitively you play them.

    I always keep my old stuff for a while, as a backup or to make someone happy with it!

    Speaking from someone who likes to keep everything and use it as long as I possibly can, I feel really, really badly replacing something that is still working, even if the new one has improvements, such as grip, shape, etc. However, I understand that upgrading is important, even necessary. Just hold onto your dear mouse and let your friend use it when he comes over in gaming sessions.

    Well if its still working why not use it. Unless you've got spare cash or there is a good promotion. Lights and stuff you won't really notice it after awhile.

    Always have a back up if you plan on upgrading your gear. Unless money isn't an issue and you can just go buy new again.

    If your Naga function well, there is no a strong reason to make you change the mouse. Unless you really want the new Naga v2, you can buy Naga v2 and keep your current Naga for backup purpose.
