The modular-upped Naga Trinity- Killing three birds with one mouse?

The Original Naga came out five years ago and was made keeping MMO/MOBA gamers in mind. The new 2018 Razer Naga Trinity had three side plates to appeal towards FPS, MMO and MOBA players at the same time, especially those who don’t play a single genre. Definitely something unique. Having such mice as a daily driver might be a hate or love relationship because the main audience is still MOBA/MMO. It is not every day you get to see something like this. Because nobody did this…yet. Razer is probably the first to go crazy with 12-switch side-grip mouse. It was made for MMO gamers. This widens the genre to make Naga family (or one of its variants) to be adopted by a wider circle.

Packaging and Contents

Razer follows the usual black and green packaging. It would be nice if the background had a lighter colour to give a better look at the mouse. Some mouse manufacturers have cut-outs for people to see the mouse inside. It helps people to make an impulse purchase or get a good view of the mouse.

Mouse Overview and Design

Getting used to the Razer Naga Trinity took a lot of time. I wasn’t testing a single mouse. I was testing a mouse meant for a wide range of games with the same mouse shape appealing to claw and palm grip users. For the built quality it offers and the wide shape, the Naga Trinity is very light.

Razer Naga Trinity’s right side is recessed for resting your ring finger. , There are rubber grips on either side of the mouse, except for the 12-switch clip. Because of the obvious difference in button configuration, the grips for the left side plates are shaped accordingly.

Cooler Master MH630 Headset Review

The Cooler Master MH630 is a headphone without a DAC. Consequently, it doesn't have any fancy RGB lighting and effects. If you love to have RGB bling on a headset, this isn't for you. But the MH630 has everything else you could ask for- a detachable cable, built-in volume control and a detachable microphone. Since the Cooler Master MH630 has a 3.5mm jack it works great on almost anything you can connect it to. Moreover, there is also a splitter to enable you to connect it to a source that has a separate mic input.

Cooler Master MM710 Gaming Mouse Review

Cooler Master has a good share of mechanical keyboards since its CM Storm days. But its venture towards gaming mouse has an erratic hit or a miss. I did like the CM Storm Alcor and the shell of the CM Storm Mizar but that was about it. Cooler Master really needed something that can have the best of both worlds. But CM Storm Alcor was light, a pro in itself wasn't really pushed ahead.
