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.

Cooler Master MH751 Gaming Headset Review

The gaming headset market is booming these days. Manufacturers like Kingston with their Hyper X Cloud series or the Corsair Void pro series ensure that there are a plethora of gaming headset options for the avid gamer. The MH751 is a Takstar Pro 82 headphone (which has two variants-28 ohms and 32ohms) modified for Cooler Master. Takstar is an OEM that makes headsets for a lot of brands and are quite known for their good sounding products. There also exists a Cooler Master MH752 which has a built-in 7.1 USB DAC which is good for those who don't have good quality sound cards.

Cooler Master CM310 Optical Sensor Gaming Mouse Review

Cooler Master has been in peripheral business for a long time, especially with regularly releasing newer keyboards and headsets. The Cooler Master CK550 and the MH751 are two good examples. The gaming peripheral market is over-crowded and yet it manages to sell. The last mouse I've reviewed from Cooler Master is the Alcor and the Mizar. I loved the Alcor optical mouse. It was an agile mouse with all the switches places in reachable areas and I wanted more was the grips the Laser mouse Mizar. This wasn't the only brand that had this point of view at the time since everyone was in the race to push laser sensors and the next best thing. I never really understood why optical sensors were considered less premium to justify lesser premium features when it was hassle-free, compared to laser sensors of certain makes that had quirks that took some firmware and sensor updates implemented by the manufacturer. Logitech was one of the gaming peripheral makers that was the first to jump aboard with its MX series. For some reason, it ditched the MX branding under G series- and now brought it back.
