The versatility of the Razer Naga Trinity makes it the perfect mouse for gamers who regularly switch between genres. However, it is pricey and not very suitable for traveling because it is bulky and wired.

The Naga Trinity is an excellent gaming mouse which offers gamers great performance and several customization options. It has three interchangeable side panels, which means you can either use the regular two-button configuration, the hex’s seven-button arrangement, or the unique Naga 12-button layout. Each panel attaches magnetically, and swapping between them is extremely simple.

Combining this triple functionality with Razer’s in-house Synapse 3 software gives you an extremely versatile platform which you can truly personalize as you like. While it is an outstanding mouse for MMO players, its swappable panels make it just as great for other game genres as well. It provides players with a 16,000 DPI 5G optical sensor for high-precision gaming, meaning that all the inputs are executed accurately and swiftly.

The mouse has great ergonomics that fits the palm perfectly. It helps to prevent strain and fatigue during long periods of gaming. However, it also means it is strictly for right-handers only.

The Razer Naga Trinity fits comfortably in the hand and the interchangeable side panels are simply excellent. It is different from older Naga versions since you can interchange the side panels depending on the game you want to play or the task you want to carry out.

But the rest of the mouse is designed like older Razer mice versions. The gaming mouse is wide, large, and bulky. So, if you are looking for a sleek and portable mouse, then the Trinity will not suit you at all. However, for those that want as many buttons as they can possibly get on a single mouse, then the size shouldn’t be an issue.

The top of the mouse has a single plate design and is not separated under the primary buttons or on the palm rest. However, the buttons have a groove to ensure maximum comfort of the fingers.

The front of the mouse is cut from the top until just at the back of the scroll wheel. The scroll wheel has a rubber ring as well as LED lights on both sides. It also clicks in three different ways and has two dots-per-inch (DPI) buttons directly at the bottom the wheels to adjust the sensitivity on the fly. On the palm rest of the mouse is a LED backlit Razer Snake logo.

While it is a stocky mouse, its ergonomics show that it is designed for gamers. The right side sticks out and has a similar groove to the buttons, so you can rest the ring finger. The other side has a rubber grip to make the pinky comfortable.

At the bottom of the mouse is the usual layout. The optical sensor is centered slightly below the middle of the mouse and has two slick feet at the front and one at the back which runs across the entire width. It also features a profile button to switch between the profiles which you have stored on-board.

If you are used to heavier gaming mice, then it might take some time to get used to the Razer Naga Trinity, which feels really good right out of the box. It weighs about 0.26 pounds (120g), which is quite lightweight.

Unlike some high-end gaming mice, you can not completely customize the lighting on every zone of the Naga Trinity. This means that gamers will not be able to turn the mouse into a multi-colored device for sake of aesthetics. However, it has RGB lighting that can be personalized with the Synapse software.

Like every Razer product, the Naga Trinity is high-quality. Although it is made completely out of plastic, it feels sturdy and is designed for long-term use. It has a braided cable that is nearly 7 feet long, which is enough for any setup.

Features & Performance


The interchangeable side panels are the signature feature of the Razer Naga Trinity. With this feature, you can use any of the three side plates.

All three panels are comfortable to hold. The 12-button configuration is the most straightforward, featuring four rows of three buttons each. It is popular for playing MMO (massively multiplayer online) games.

Its seven-button layout is designed for MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena) type games. The seven buttons are arranged in a disc shape and have a small circular rubber grip at the center. The buttons are numbered clockwise from the top as 3, 7, 6, 5, 4, 1, and 2. Although the arrangement might seem odd, you will find that your thumb will rest naturally on button 1. The other buttons are numbered as the ease of access with the thumb decreases.

For the traditional layout, there are two curved buttons alongside a large, ridged thumb rest under them. It is pretty simple to operate and is great for basic gaming as well as general productivity.

Each panel runs the length of the mouse from the left corner until the middle of the back. Inside the panel is a sixteen-grid sensor array and magnets at the front and back for secure connection. The magnets are powerful and well-placed to ensure that the panel stays in place even during hectic gaming sessions.

Apart from how useful the side panels are, it is very easy to switch between them. This is because the magnets make removing and attaching them effortless. If you wanted, you could probably use the Razer Naga Trinity without any side panels. But that would just mean that you were resting your thumb on bare metal.


The Razer Naga Trinity has the Razer 5G optical sensor with true 16,000 DPI as well as up to 450 IPS/50G acceleration. This makes the gaming mouse quite responsive and high-performing. It has the Razer mechanical switches underneath, which register clicks, and the adjustable DPI allows you to tweak the speed of the cursor.

The Naga Trinity performs excellently during gaming, although it might take a while to get used to the buttons. But once you get used to them, they become a part of your hand as you play your favorite games.

The Naga series is designed for MMO players. Using the 12-button panel to play WoW transforms the Trinity into a 19-button beast. It is quite easy to use the spells and macros. The 7-button side panel is great for playing games like League of Legends. Those who love shooters can make use of the 2-button configuration for their FPS games.

Although it is a gaming mouse, you can also use it for your everyday productivity, such as word processing and image editing. You can set up a Windows profile with word processing-centered functions such as copy, paste, italic, bold, and save.

Like when gaming, once you become used to using a mouse button instead of a combination of two, three, or four keyboard buttons, it helps to make repetitive tasks much faster. You can set up different profiles for day-to-day tasks and productivity purposes like word processing or editing, and switch between them on the fly.

The Razer Naga Trinity works with the Razer Synapse 3 software, which offers users tons of customization options. Synapse is one of the best configuration programs for devices. It is user-friendly, easy to use, and easy to understand. With this software, you can reprogram the buttons, personalize the RGB lighting, change the DPI, and adjust the performance settings until you are satisfied. You can also choose to calibrate your mouse to a Razer mousepad if you have one.

Just like many other gaming peripheral software, the Customize tab offers you a top-down view of the Naga Trinity mouse. Above this tab, you can choose to add or delete profiles. You can create a different profile for every game that you play, and there is no limit to the number of profiles you can have. However, you can only save four profiles on the mouse’s on-board memory, so you can still have access to your settings when you plug it into another computer.

Naga Trinity has a great interface in Synapse 3. Any time you swap out the side panels, the software immediately recognizes the panel that is attached. This works even when you are not gaming.

In the Synapse software, there is a link that you can use to open the Mouse Properties menu right from your Windows computer. This unique feature can be accessed from the Performance tab. Despite how much you can customize the Naga Trinity with the default windows, these functionality options allow you to do even more.

All the customizable components have clickable text links next to them. Once these are clicked, the left menu expands to show all available options. Customizable options include mouse functions, keyboard functions, macros, enabling Razer Hypershift, sensitivity toggles, multimedia controls, text functions, switching profiles, launching programs, windows shortcuts, and even disabling the mouse.

There are four thumbnails under the top-down view of the gaming mouse. There is one each for top-down, as well as the two, seven, and twelve button panels. Customizing the panels is made easier since you don’t have to attach the specific panel before you can configure it. A green check shows the side panel that is currently installed.

It is quite easy to configure the buttons. The steps are the same as when customizing the top-down view. Razer Hypershift also allows you to program a second set of functions for each button. All you have to do is hold down that specific button to be able to access the second set of key maps. This allows you to double the mapping for each button.

There is a hamburger menu on the top left which expands to show all the current mappings for every side panel. This is great since it helps to show what you map for each profile.

To save a profile, simply click on the icon that looks like an SD card. This will expand the onboard memory menu, then you can now drag the profile you want to save to any of the four slots. Similarly, you can change a profile using the profile button on the mouse. A notification will pop up on the screen to show the profile you have changed to. You also have the option to assign a certain profile to a specific game. Therefore, anytime you launch that game, your mouse will be automatically switched to that profile.

With the performance tab, you can choose the number of DPI sensitivity stages you want for each profile. You can set up to five stages for each one. The DPI can be from as low as 100 to as high as 16000. Each polling rate can be set at 125, 500, and 1000.

The Lighting tab allows you to tweak the brightness, Chroma Effects, and Chroma Studio Effects if you have connected more than one Chroma-enabled device. It also lets you toggle other options, such as turning off the LED lighting when your display is off or when the mouse is idle for a specific number of minutes.

Using the Calibration menu will let you add a Razer mousepad to which you can calibrate the mouse to that surface. It also allows you to create a custom surface calibration when you drag the mouse in a zig-zag manner to register the size, after which you can tweak the lift-off range.

You can use the Chroma menu to personalize the type of effect on the mouse, either with quick selections or in-depth customizations. There is a Hue menu with which you can connect to a Hue device for a more immersive gaming experience.

In the Settings menu, you can choose whether the Synapse 3 software should start on Windows startup. It also allows you to select a dark or light theme, view the mouse’s Master Guide, and reset the mouse and software to default.

Bottom Line:

At $99.99, the Razer Naga Trinity is more expensive than most wired mice. However, it costs far less than three wired mice, which is what the Naga Trinity offers with its excellent versatility. This makes it a great choice for those who play other genres apart from MMO, and makes it an amazing alternative to having two separate gaming mice.

It has a sleek and classic design with great ergonomics and impressive button placement. This allows you to use it comfortably in all grips, whether it is the palm grip, claw grip, or fingertip grip. With its interchangeable side panels and customization options via the Synapse software, the Razer Naga Trinity is a unique and worthwhile addition to your gaming setup.
