I would definitely recommend it. Now that I'm used to it, the mouse buttons are more comfortable and accessible than the keyboards.
I do not suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it.

I had a Razer Naga... Was great for about 6 months, then it died.
Being called foolhardy just means regrets and limits won't ever stop you.
I'm using a "classic" naga for more than two years and it's still working fine.
The first 6 side buttons are really accessible, the 7th as well, I find the others a bit harder to use. But it all depends on the size of your hands, some of my guildies simply couldn't use it (fat fingers )
I've used my Razer Naga for three years of pretty intensive MMO gaming. I could never go back to normal keyboard 1-12 keybindings, the thumb shit is just so much better imo.
In the three years of ownership i've never encountered a single problem. If a shitload of thumb buttons is what you are after, i'd advise the naga.
I've been using a Naga for about 2 years now. It's really a great mouse. The adjustable buttons and smoothly scaling DPI is really nice. Back in WotLK the mouse really made my warrior play move up from trash tier to middle-of-the-line. Without it I doubt I could have improved my reaction times as much as I did. I can't justify buying one if you don't plan on playing a class with numerous keybinds or if you're not PvPing.
I'm a bit of a Razer enthusiast at this point. I've owned an N52TE gamepad for as long as I've owned my Naga and I really like them both. They work very well with one another to maximize keybinds and reaction time. It takes a while to get used to playing like that. It's worth it though. It became extremely easy to change targets and use focus macros for arena after that. I also recently bought a Razer keyboard and I've been loving that too.
My only concern is that Razer products aren't built to last. Most Naga mice will last 6-12 months of constant use. I've already had to replace mine twice. It was all under the included warranty for no extra charge, so I'm pleased. I've gotten 3 mice for the price of one and the combination of them has lasted me a while. There are fixes for the issues that Nagas get too, especially if you're good at handling small tools in small places.
My verdict: Buy a Naga if you don't mind getting used to playing the game differently and if you're willing to get replacement mice on warranty. It's more worth it if you play a class with numerous keybinds or if you PvP.
I´ve never tested any of the models you guys are talking about. Been wanting to get a Naga but now that I see that Logitech has a model thats very similar to it (G600?), I will probably go Logitech. Been using my logitech MX518 since it was released, working perfectly. How many years has it been? I don´t even remember.
Personally, I recommend this: http://www.logitech.com/en-us/produc...nced-gameboard
I've got so many keys I don't even know what to do with all of them. For whatever reason, I just prefer having most of my action keys on my left hand, then my steering, vent, and oh shit buttons on my mouse. I also know that my friend bought 3 razr mice in the time that I had 1 logitech mouse, but take that anecdotal evidence as you will.
My only complaint about this was the software, but they fixed it a few patches ago, so now I'm a happy camper.
I have a Naga Molten. I think the Hex might be a better bet for most people because of the 12 thumbpad buttons on the molten, only 9 are easily reachable, for me at least. The Hex button layout also looks easier to get used to.
Getting used to the Naga can be difficult and take a few months if you are used to playing with some other system of keyboard binds, but it's well worth the effort IMHO, especially if you play melee classes.

I don't understand what's up with all the "it breaks" thing. Of all the products I've bought in my life, none has stopped working, only thing that has stopped working for me was a calculator that I received from school (got a new one for free), and a headset which I broke (by an "accident"). Even when I owned a gamecube it tumbled over several times, never got damage in any way, I've dropped my phone very many times, never broke. Am I lucky?
I've pounded the buttons on mine quite a bit after 3 years still no problems. Dirt likes to build up in between the number pad but very easy to clean with something sharp.
I haven't had any paint wear problems and the scroll wheel is a bit loud but shouldn't steer you away from a great mouse. Ignore the "it breaks" troll posts, this is a very solid, well made mouse worth the money. I would recommend it.
