The Razer Naga and Logitech G600 are two of the finest gaming mice on the market. They each host a cluster of customizable buttons where the thumb rests that allow casting spells or any other in game functions to be easily programmed and accessed with a flick of your thumb.
Here we’ll take a close look at each of them with pros and cons and compare their strengths and weaknesses against each other. Let’s figure out which one is the true champion.
Unlike the Logitech G600, the Razer Naga comes in more than just one model. Options include the Naga Hex, Naga Epic, the original wired Naga and a special edition for each model. For the sake of consistency, we’ll use the original version in this comparison, though they are all fairly similar in design and build quality.
Like the G600, the Razer Naga comes equipped with 12 fully programmable buttons located at the thumb rest. There are two more located just behind the mouse wheel toward the center of the mouse, and of course the main mouse buttons for left and right clicking.
The design is ergonomic and fits comfortably in the hand. It’s designed to fit nicely within your palm. As a downside, the bottom of the mouse has numerous crevices that can easily trap dirt and dust inside, eventually affecting the sensor.
The Naga is capable of up to 8200 DPI and 1000Hz ultrapolling, as is the Logitech G600. Unfortunately with the Razer Naga, you have to register with your email upon installing and it is mandatory. That’s a bit irritating, especially if you don’t want any more spam in your inbox, but at least you can keep track some of your usage data using their proprietary software. The Razer Naga costs about $65 and comes in black.
- Fits very comfortably in the hand as it’s a bit smaller than the G600
- Is available in several different versions and editions
- Great for MMO gaming with plenty of diehard fans that swear by it
- Costs about $30 more than the G600
- Crevices on the bottom fill with dirt and dust
- Forces a sign up upon installation
The G600 has a unique feature that the Naga simply doesn’t have. The third mouse button on the G600 has the ability to activate a second function for each other key. This added bonus gives the player access to nearly 50 different commands just with the mouse alone, leaving their other hand completely free to maneuver with the keyboard. That amount of customizability should be more than you’ll ever need.
The bottom of the G600 is sealed up and won’t allow any dirt or grime inside the mouse. The installation is simpler and doesn’t require you to sign up for anything if you don’t want to. Though the software that comes with the Logitech G600 has fewer features, you can add more using the Arx Control app for Android or iPhone.
The backlight color of the G600 can be customized to your taste. The Logitech G600 costs around $35 and comes in either black or white.
- More customizability, more button options
- Roughly $30 cheaper than the Naga
- Durable and protects sensor from dust well
- Is larger than the Naga, so people with small hands may not like it
- Software is less useful than the Razer Naga’s
Now that we have all the facts laid out here, we can see that they each have their advantages. The Razer Naga is a bit more comfortable to use and fits more easily in the hand, while the Logitech G600 is simply a powerhouse of customizability and configuration. The G600 is also about $30 cheaper, so if price is an issue, then the clear winner would have to be the G600 considering the amount of features you’re getting for the money. But if you’re willing to pay a bit more to get something very comfortable, the Naga should be your pick.
That being said, the obvious overall winner between the Razer Naga and Loitech G600 is the G600.
