I bought a Naga from the Razer store and soon after I started using the mouse it stopped initializing at a cold computer start. I would have to unplug the mouse and plug it back in to get it to work. Well soon that did not even work and the mouse died. I got a replacement but it still needs to be unplugged on a cold start. So now I have an 80 dollar paper weight. I will never buy another Razer product again.

This is a typical problem with Razer Megladon headphones also. For the headphones if you don't have a good enough power supply they recommend that you buy a powered USB hub. I wouldn't think that a mouse would use that much power though so I'm not sure if it's the same problem. I have both the Naga and Megladon headphones and I don't have this issue. My PSU is a little over 1kw (I think 1.2).

I love my original Naga, and it's not just for MMO's. I find it extremely useful for FPS games like Battlefield 2 that have a ton of different commands you can execute. It does take some getting used to but it's worth the effort. My only negative comments are the odd positioning of the two "thumb" buttons between the keypad and the left/right mouse buttons. They feel like they're in no mans land and are awkward to press. The Naga software only stores 5 different game profiles which really bites. Most of the time I'm only into one to two games but lately I've been playing a lot of different titles and it's annoying to redo the profiles.

Thanks for letting me know it's good for FPS too!

Long since switched to the Xai Laser mouse for my competitional mousing needs, however have used Roccat products, -very- nice, but pricey. The laser sensor Razer uses is rather garbage for anything but point and click surfing and mmos.

 

Some Logi's are nice too, namely the MX518 (Legend) and G500

I use to be a die hard Razer Fan, but have become dissapointed with the quality of their products lately, I had a old Razer Deathadder Worked amazingly until the unit became defective ( my fault, improper storage).

I  purcahsed the Razer Wireless Mamba..the DPI wouldn't switch like I had it configured and the battery life wasn't nearly what I was expecting, so I returned it and exchanged for the new 3500 Deathadders, this one has a noisy mouse wheel and the cord, while now covered in a mesh, seems to be acting up lately.

I was intrested in the Naga brand for FPS gaming and MMO gaming, but I was weary of the button locations for FPS games.

 

I am having a hard time trusting Razer of late and considering staying with logitech for all my gaming perphials.

A lot of my Razer mice have been seeing defects lately and developing noisy, "cheap-feeling" scroll wheels and buttons.  Does this or the Mamba have the same inferior build quality?  I expect mice to last for years and years, especially for this kind of cash.

Quality control and Razer are mutually exclusive, methinks.
