Razer Naga Pro vs CORSAIR Scimitar RGB Elite: Technical Comparison

The mouse is, together with the keyboard, the input peripheral par excellence, since it is essential to navigate through the windows of the operating system. In the face of video games, it is essential in genres such as strategy, MMOs and MOBAs and among the best are the Scimitar RGB Elite and the Naga Pro . Is Razer‘s mouse better than CORSAIR’s?

Razer Naga Pro vs CORSAIR Scimitar RGB Elite

The world of competitive online gaming has created a need for mice with much lower response time, better precision and more buttons to access different commands. That is why the market has been flooded with mice that are sold for gaming, but not all of them reach the minimum quality levels that competitive gaming demands, especially in games designed for eSports.

That is why we have chosen two of the most acclaimed and popular mice on the market such as the RGB Elite from CORSAIR and the Naga Pro from Razer and we have put them face to face so that in case of doubt when it comes to knowing which one to choose, you know which option is best for you.

CORSAIR Scimitar RGB Elite Gaming Mouse

This is a mouse designed to play both MOBAs and MMOs thanks to the fact that it has 12 buttons on its side to which we can assign different commands in games, accelerating access to certain actions in games, and adding up to the other 5, so all 17 are programmable. Of course, we can only store up to 5 different profiles in memory, which at first may seem few, however, they are much more than in most mice on the market.

The Scimitar RGB Elite uses a PixArt PWM3391 sensor with a resolution of up to 18,000 DPI and OMRON switches. So in that aspect it is not lacking in performance. Of course, if you want to take full advantage of it, you must install the CORSAIR iCUE drivers from where we can also control the RGB lighting of the mouse, the DPI of the sensor, as well as program its large number of buttons and calibrate it.

The last thing we have left is connectivity, which is wired via USB, which is key to making CORSAIR’s mouse cheaper than Razer’s. So unless you are one of those people who plays away from the mouse screen.

Razer Naga Pro Mouse

If, on the other hand, cables are a nuisance to us and we want a mouse without them, then the Razer Naga Pro is our best ally, it is a mouse with specifications very similar to the CORSAIR Scimitar RGB Elite, since from the outset we have the same panel of 12 buttons on the side , which are added to the other 7 for a total of 19 programmable buttons . The Razer mouse like the CORSAIR mouse allows us to store up to 5 different macros in its memory.

The main distinguishing feature between the CORSAIR and Razer mice is that in the latter we can change the side panel of the mouse for several different ones, so apart from the 12-button panel we can choose another 6-button one or the simplest one with just 2 buttons. They all come standard and are easy to fit.

In any case, considering that we are dealing with a wireless mouse, one of the key questions is: how long does the battery last? Well, it depends on the connection that we use, since under Bluetooth, despite having more latency, it will last us 150 hours , but using its radiofrequency connectivity, although with less latency, over 100 hours. Of course, these figures are without active RGB lighting, which is configurable through Razer Chroma.

And how is its performance? Razer’s proprietary optical sensor allows you to reach up to 20,000 DPI resolution in combination with its switches with a response time of 0.2 milliseconds , so the performance of these in First Person Shooter games where reaction speed is important . So it’s a much better option for those types of games.

Razer or CORSAIR, who has the better mouse?

If you go by specifications and your pocket is not itchy, then our recommendation is that you go for the Razer model without thinking about it, however our preference is for the CORSAIR one, since in exchange for losing wireless connectivity we gain in the fact that the price almost cut us in half.

In terms of performance, the Razer mouse is somewhat better, especially due to the fact that its sensor and optical switches are more precise, but that difference is more noticeable in the genre of first-person shooters, since if we are playing a MOBA or an MMO we will not notice the difference, due to the typical Cooldown time of the characters’ actions. So depending on the type of games we play, the Naga Pro does not result in an advantage over the CORSAIR model.

Another weak point that we see in the Razer mouse compared to the CORSAIR mouse is that despite being wireless, it does not have fast charging via USB-C and it is necessary to buy a separate dock that can cause the price of the device to rise to 200 euros . In any case, we can use the micro-USB cable that comes standard to use it while charging, however, the grace of being able to charge the mouse while we are not using the PC is lost and charging is much slower.

final verdict

Our verdict? Unless you’re a Razer fan, we don’t think it’s worth paying the price difference when CORSAIR’s mouse offers almost the same performance for half the price. What’s more, you can use the price difference to buy a good mechanical keyboard and have the best possible combination or other component or peripheral for your computer.
