    Good Idea, Bad Execution

    I took a gamble and purchased this when it was slightly discounted. At the time, it was a good deal since online stores would have them in stock but at marked up prices. The build quality of the mouse is nice. The side button panels are held on by magnets and can be switched freely even while it's plugged in. This allows to switch from one button setup to another when switching between games. This is a good novel idea for those who has a wide array of PC games. I've been using the Naga Hex for a while and it's been solid. With the games I've been playing, I'm hoping the Trinity would up the ability of being able to use keys that would have been difficult to reach or use. The Trinity uses their latest Synapse software but at the time of writing, it is in "beta". I thought nothing of it until I started trying to make full use of the software and the mouse itself. The ability to customize the lighting is interesting but it's only visual aesthetics when compared to its ability to customize and control the mouse. At one point, the Synapse software would show no mouse module in the container software. Closing and opening the window did not work. I was able to fix this by closing the software completely and restarting it. Profile switching is laggy. As in, the moment you switch out, there's a momentary pause in mouse functionality. I dealt with this issue and moved on, figuring it's one of those odd quirks that you get used to over time. Unlike the previous version of the software, there is no brief pause in the mouse when you switch between programs. There's a delay in switching the profile but the experience is still smooth. Another issue I have is that after install, there are 5 services that starts up on boot. Granted, some programs perform better when there's a framework system running in the background. But for a mere gaming mouse, I find 5 services to be excessive in how Razer programmed their Synapse 3 software. Another strange issue I encountered was in customized mouse buttons. One of the side buttons I mapped to being a double-click. This helped me in using items in some games faster, since they require a double click to use. However, I ran into issues where that double-click function would intermediately not work on the first press. Sometimes it'd happen at random. Others frequent. Still, I do not see how something as simple as a mere double-click would not register as such when I pressed it. At first, I thought it was just me not being used to the feel of the buttons or its layout. But at time goes on, I find it that it's not me but rather either the button itself or the Synapse 3 software. And lastly, the 12 side button module has a very strange design and feel to it. The buttons have a very non-uniformed shape that makes it very difficult to feel your way through them. There's no bump or anything to guide you where a certain button is at (akin to how there's a bump on the number keypad 5 on keyboards). Fully utilizing 12 side buttons on a mouse comes with a high learning curve and a button design that makes it hard to guide your thumb through. Overall, the mouse isn't what I had hoped it'd be. The idea/concept is great. But the execution is downright terrible. It did not help that the Synapse 3 software is still in beta despite the mouse being available for over 6 months. Worse yet, there's no version of the Synapse software that supports this mouse so you're stuck with using unpolished software with a variety of issues and baggage. In short, I lost on the gamble. Verdict: Don't buy. Not recommended for any scenario.

    Amazing/Revolutionized How i Use My Computer

    Some quick clarification, I have only ever owned maybe ONE other gaming mouse before I got the Razer Naga several years ago. It was just a happy accident for me, but it really did change how I use computers!! So obviously I like this mouse now, Got a second one for my other computer so now there is conformity at least. But mainly i am just SO glad that i switched to a 12 button mouse. i used to have 6 on the mouse before that. and it was great! actually I thought that was perfect... But I felt guilty for wanted to switch back so i stuck it out longer. Eventually i started using a piece of tape to mark my #5 button and that sped things up!! Now i love it cuz i'm at the point of efficiently incorporating 12 hotkeys into all my favorite programs and activities. I never thought that I might actually "enjoy" organizing like old picture and document folders or junk stuff... but gol-ley when you have hotkeys set for stuff copy, paste, back, forth, up one level, add new folder, view properites... It's like you're in hyperspeed!!! lmao Btw the Software that razer uses, to help you switch between different preset programs and stuff, it's ok at least. i really liked the old version of Synapse_2 but it's only because Synapse_3 has been randomly half a second or so behind sometimes.... but oh well =/

    Good Mouse, Subpar software

    So, I have previously used a Razer Naga prior to trying out the Trinity. The major change, of course, is the addition of the interchangeable side panels and some other ergonomics. The Naga Trinity is a pretty good mouse, but it's not really first my pick as far as MMO mice goes. It easily glides across a hard surface mouse pad and the laser seems exceptionally sensitive; which can be both good and bad. The LMB and RMB clicks are nice and solid and the wheel is satisfying. The buttons on the two button and six button panels are quite nice and responsive, but the 12 button panel on mine was a bit mushy and it made it difficult to discern if I was actually pressing the button some times; it does not have the same nice tactile feel that the primary competitors have. The major reason I returned this mouse is because Razer Synapse is quite possibly one of the most non-user friendly pieces of software I have ever used. What is intuitive and easy to figure out on Corsair CUE and Logitech Gaming software is a daunting task on Synapse. Even when you know how to do it, such as setting automatic profiles and independent macros and lighting for those profiles, it's still pointlessly convoluted compared to the competition. There is also supposed to be an on-screen notification when you change profiles or adjust your DPI, but in my experience, this was wonky and couldn't decide if it wanted to actually work. Not a big deal, but I still found it curious that Synapse just decided it would work some times, then stop working. So, mechanically the Naga Trinity seems fine, but I'm not a fan of the Synapse software. If you're already in the Razer environment, it's a great mouse with a lot of convenient options. If you're new to gaming mice, it's a great option, but expect a learning curve and some frustration with the software.

    Professional Plug & Play Mouse!

    After testing out multiple MMO gaming mouses all the way ranging from SteelSeries, Corsair , Logitech to Razer. I can by far say that Razer knows what they are doing when it comes to gaming mouses. The Razer Trinity is a nice edition to the MMO mouse lineup. The Razer Trinity is very plug & play, and you can re-keybind both DPI buttons to mouse 4 & Mouse 5 if needed. You can basically customize the Razer Trinity to however you want it configured when it comes to keybinding. The DPI speeds are solid, and the laser reads very well on any surface. The Razer Trinity's scroll wheel does in fact move from side-to-side or press down when clicking on the wheel itself. This alone is a very good feature that if I recall, they took out of other MMO mouse's. This is the only MMO mouse you need for MMO's... I've hit gladiator 8x on World of Warcraft using Razer MMO mouses for the longest time now. As long as you take care of the mouse and clean the mouse each month. It will last you for a VERY long time. As they say, take care of your stuff and your stuff shall take care of you in return! If you've read this full review, you know you want to pick one up and try it out!

    A great versatile gaming mouse

    I wanted to try out an MMO-style gaming mouse with a number grid on the side like the Naga or the Corsair Scimitar but I was worried about investing in it and not liking it. Enter the Trinity, where I could swap out to the 7-button MOBA plate, or the traditional side buttons more suited for FPS games. It's a great feeling mouse but it is a little weird to try to grip it to lift it when using the number grid on the side but with some finesse, it can be done. It took some getting used to using the number grid for WoW but now that I have it's very convenient and I have to rely much less on combinations of keys with my left hand, making it easier to move while using abilities. Another drawback that I didn't realize was that the grid of keys on the side, or on the MOBA panel, these keys cannot be labeled as their own distinct keys (something like Mouse4 to Mouse16, for instance) but can only be mapped to other functions on the keyboard or macros using the Synapse software. I was able to make this work well for me but beware that if you map it 1 to = then you'll get the same result as if you pressed these on your keyboard. I think the other MMO mice by other brands act the same way, so this isn't a unique problem to the Trinity, but it's just something to be aware of. I ended up use F1 through F12 and I've seen others use the Numpad keys. Anyway, easy to use software, great feeling ergonomics, versatile options, and oo pretty colors.

    Just Bad

    This mouse is just bad, I had bought this mouse because i owned the first gen of the razer naga epic and loved it, it was the "only" mouse to fit my grip. This mouse feels cheaply made by comparison, its too light for my taste, and its not wide enough for my grip style. I would not trash it if that was all, after all these things may only apply to my tastes, however, the software you have to use with this mouse is among the worst I have ever been forced to use. The first problem is even getting the software to function in the first place so you can hate it, because most of the time it just refuses to work or freezes up. The next problem with the software is that it often stops detecting the mouse. The third problem is the software tries to get you to install add-ons you likely dont need/want and poorly explains what they are, making you far better off saying no to everything since you can add things on later if you need them. If i had know buying this mouse was just for beta testers I would have passed and razer should be ashamed charging people for unfinished products. tldr: software bad, didnt like mouse, dont buy

    - I gave this product no thought to begin with other than there's an actual place to rest my ring finger, however, over time continued use of the product is messing up the joint in my ring finger. I actually, honestly, would not recommend this product for that simple fact. - Side panels I would recommend 2 out of 3 total panels.... The simple two button side panel, and the side panel with options in a circle. The 12 button side panel is too cluttered in my opinion and quite difficult to get use to. - And last, Razer Synapse 3. This software is terrible. Macros created do not work as intended, at all. You might accidentally overdo a macro and have to restart your computer because the "Toggle On/Off" option does not work as it's suppose to and doesn't terminate the macro. Mouse tracking software is trash and highly inaccurate. And at one point I uninstalled the software working on something else, in which doing so corrupted/damaged/deleted/disabled my mouse driver and I had to spend my evening fixing that which was extremely annoying and tiresome. (Thank god for Windows "Ease Of Access" options.) In my opinion, don't waste your time with Razer; Stick with other gaming brands.

    So I've been taking risks lately trying out different brand of mice aside from Logitech. This was my first Razer product I ever purchased and was honestly super excited for it. First the obvious feature of the interchangeable side plates, it's an awesome feature. I'm very experimental when it comes to gaming and how I game (I get bored using the same method/tool for so long) so switching out the side plates to implement different play styles was a fun experience. Performance the mouse was reliable in tracking and responsiveness. However I been really into the wireless class of mice and having a wire on this mouse did add a bit of a dilemma. The main factor of why I ended returning this mouse though was the size. It's extremely wide and unnecessarily in my opinion, I could never find a comfortable grip for this matter. Also the right click was extremely sensitive to click, to the point it made me feel like I had a heavy middle finger as I could never just let it relax over the click. It's more personal preference with this mouse and I'm glad I tried it out, or I would've always wondered.

    Synapse software makes this a bit disappointing.

    So I had a Naga 2014 that's starting to die & I'm in need of a new one. I was looking at the Corsair Scimitar & Logitech G600. I decided to go the Naga due to my positive experience with the 2014 version as well as thinking I could import the software profiles I had created on Synapse. I was so disappointed to find out the new Synapse software which, IS CURRENTLY IN BETA, CAN NOT, import those profiles so I need to set them ALL. OVER. AGAIN. REPEAT: you can't import your cloud or local Synapse profiles to the new Synapse software. To make matters worse, I use this mouse primarily for working with Autodesk Maya, Photoshop & Unity3D. Maya has a ton of keyboard shortcuts, one of which is the keyboard shortcut combo, CTRL + ALT (for select zoom). The current Synapse will not allow for this keyboard shortcut combo. New Nagas are using optical rather than laser sensors, but so far no issues & everything has been smooth. Not sure about quality yet since I just got this today. Had I known the new Synapse software won't import old profiles, I would have bought the Logitech G600. Quite frankly, I'm thinking about exchanging this.

    After having a Razer Naga Epic which lasted me for 6.5 years I was loyal to the Razer brand. I replaced it with a Naga Chroma when it wore out, but that’s where the problems started. That Naga lasted me 1 year and I warrantied it out. That was a grueling process because of Razer’s customer service. When I finally got it replaced, my replacement lasted about 2 years before the mouse wheel went out. I tried to replace it with the new Naga Trinity model, but ended up a bust. I had to return and exchange this item 3 times within a week. The 5 key went out the next day on the first one, the 3 key was sticking out of box on the second one and stopped working 2 days later. The 2 key on the third one didn’t work out of box. I will not buy a Razer Mouse again. P.S. As part of Razer’s new drivers they use software similar to not coin mining to earn “rewards points”. This puts an intense load on your PC making the video card run at full blast all the time. Do not use this.

    This was the last item I needed to complete my Razor set(mouse, mousepad, and keyboard). The mouse works great now that I’ve gotten use to using the available num-pads. It’s my first “gaming” mouse. The only issue I have with it is its software. I already had the mousepad and keyboard and the software required to be able to adjust/program them. However, that software wouldn’t recognize the mouse. After downloading (which wasn’t easy to find) the right software, which can be used for all of them, I was able to adjust/program the mouse. But, I did notice that there’s now 7 processes running for 3 different services. And, the one service required for the “chroma” to work is dependent upon both of the others. It just seems wrong to force me to run services that I don’t need or want just to take advantage of one of the selling features of a product. I could have just as easily spent a quarter of the cost of this mouse if I didn’t want the “chroma” effects.

    Fairly average to be honest. I really enjoyed the old Razer Naga, so I bought this one when that one started going bad on me. When I first got this one it was a bit awkward getting used to the button style, but it grows on you. I really dislike the Synapse software, its incredibly invasive in my day to day computing, and the macros are very simplified compared to what you used to be able to do. It does get the job done though, and if you can catch this on a decent sale it would probably be worth it. The issue I'm having now (The mouse is just under a year old) is that my mouse buttons are becoming unresponsive on the sides, and hypersensitive on the top. I cant left click anymore without it double clicking or letting off the hold immediately. I have been a Razer fan for many years, but I will probably be trying something else to replace this one.

    I have been very hesitant to move to this kind of mouse but when I saw that this can be changed from a standard mouse to 2 different types of key styles I was open to trying it out. I don't use the 12 key but I find that the 7 key is perfect my use. It works great. I will say that the Razer software has been very buggy on OSX with this. I often times have to make sure the mouse is seen by the software before starting my games which isn't too bad. The problem lies in I some times have to reboot my computer for the mouse to be seen. And sometimes in games the mouse keybindings get screwed up and my other keys now act as if I'm holding down multi-keys. It doesn't happen too often and I've out how to fix on the fly but it is still a pain as it usually happens when you need the mouse keybindings the most. But that is a software feature more than the mouse. However as you need the software to use the mouse in games.....be warned.

    This mouse is wonderful for any game which requires more than 2 buttons. In an MMO, your main rotation can be hotkeyed to the 12 side buttons, which frees up your movement significantly. In a shooter--such as fallout--You can hotkey your main weapons to 1 through six for different situations such as melee, close ranged, spray and pray, and explosives. The second six can then be paired to different health kits and buffs, such as damage reduction and speed increase. Allocating your most important buttons to a single digit (your right thumb) allows for freedom of movement in any WASD based movement system. Please consider improving your reaction times today with a Razer Naga. As an aside, this is my second time purchasing this mouse. My first lasted over 5 years before the buttons stopped working from use--far before the cord began to fray. This purchase is worth the money.

    I have owned 5 Razer mice and 3 Razer keyboards. I use Razer because I use hundreds of Macros on 3 Games with over 18 Toons. So my Razer Naga Epic died and is discontinued so had to upgrade to the Naga Trinity. BEWARE! WARNING! If you own a Razer mouse and keep your Macros on the Synapse cloud by Razer you will "NOT" be able to transfer your Macros to the Trinity Mouse! I lost 8 years of game play Macros as soon as I downloaded the Trinity to Razer. They cannot transfer or replace or save any Macros you have already created on "THEIR" cloud! Really? From the company who says they are for Gamers only, this is a kick in the teeth. You will have to recreate all of you Macros for all of your Toons 1 at a time. What a joke. Years of Macros gone. BE WARNED! BEWARE! DON'T BUY IF YOU SAVE MACROS. VERY DISSAPOINTED! $100.00 AND YOU CAN'T TRANSFER YOUR YEARS OF MACRO CREATIONS. BAD BUSINESS.

    I have been using Razer mice almost exclusively for awhile now (6+ years). Had a Deathadder that has been working great for over 5-6 years now. Decided to upgrade to the Hex button mouse, though was no longer being sold. Though this has since replaced it. I have not tried the 12 button plate, as I feel my thumb would not be precise enough (i.e. Fat thumb). The other two plates have worked great, are easy to swap out without any issue as a magnet is used to hold them. Neither has popped off when picking up the mouse and dropping it down during gameplay. The Chroma lighting is neat, though not something I really pay attention to. I did play around with it in synapse, but don't actually pay enough attention to the mouse to use it (And it is kinda hard to see when your hand is covering the lighted parts). Overall, a great replacement to my aging and still functional deathadder mouse.

    I do a lot of database and scheduling for work and decided to pick up this mouse because it was on sale, came recommended by the Best Buy rep and was on sale. I have been using it for a couple of weeks now and it's changed the way I do work now. I've only used the 7-button face, I decided to practice on that one before upgrading to the 12-button. The on-board profiles are great because I can have a map for Excel, Access, and my scheduling software. If it's got a hotkey or key combination to get there it can be mapped, and it's awesome. The Synapse 3 software is a little tough at times but once you get a little practice its very helpful. The faceplates fit well in the pencil pockets in my computer bag--the only thing I wish it had was if it were wireless. Would I pay $100 for it? I don't know. Would I ask if my company would be able to expense it? Oh yeah. Gamer mice can be used for good too!

    I've been using a Razer Naga for the last two generations (Naga and Naga Chroma) and both have held up very well. I had to get each replaced once under warranty and both times Razer support made the process very simple and both still work to this day. When this version went on sale I took the opportunity to grab it because my Naga Chroma went out of warranty recently and the price just too good to pass up. The mouse seems to have excellent build quality and has a little more weight to it than previous versions (something I personally like). The addition of the swappable side panel to go from the "MMO" button pad, to the "MOBA" button pad to a more traditional two button pad gives this mouse a lot of flexibility and should meet all of your needs. The only thing that could improve this mouse would be the capability to use it both wired and wireless.

    I have owned many Razer mice over the years, but I have never had such a problem as I have with this particular mouse. The buttons on this mouse are plagued with static issues causing the button switches inside the mouse to misfire constantly causing inadvertent double clicks or completely disengaging at the most inopportune times. You can blow into the gap between the button and the mouse housing for a VERY temporary solution (this will temporarily discharge the static that has accumulated on the button switches) but the problem returns again and again. I am in a low humidity environment and static can be a problem but I have never encountered any equipment that was THIS sensitive to the issue. I would NOT buy this mouse again.

    Background - I game on an amateur competitive level. I go through mice approximately 1 mouse every 6 months or so. Pros - Versatile, good hardware sensor, decent precision even on poor surfaces. Has hardware profile memory, decent amount. Wheel has tilt, which gives it extra functions. Lighting is excellent. Cons - Software support, synapse responds VERY slow and simply just doesn't work. It's not intuitive. Hardware memory also slow. Although the tilt is nice, it's a little too sensitive. Bottom line - the multiple versions of the software is still very poor and does not do the hardware justice. Because of that, my last 2 mice have been Corsair and I've been very happy. I WANT to like this mouse, if they fix their software I will buy another Trinity because it is a good concept and when it does work it's great. Except it works less than 10% of the time.
