With Razer Hypershift, accessible via Razer Synapse software, each button can also be assigned a secondary function for maximum control and customization. For quick and easy access, the Naga Pro can store up to five profiles in onboard memory – even without the software.

The 6-button and 2-button side panels felt the most comfortable and practical as there is enough room between the buttons for precise clicks. The 12-button layout is a bit tricky to use and can take some time getting used to. The Naga Pro felt very responsive with no noticeable lags or delays in wired and 2.4Ghz Hyperspeed mode. However, we did notice occasional lags on Bluetooth mode.
