Mionix NAOS 5000 mouse review -
The left side of the mouse shows the LEDS indicating the three DPI levels. We also spot two thumb buttons here that can be customized/configured.
The right side of the mouse has an ergonomic grip for your fingers so that you can hold the mouse really securely. Ergonomically it is a very pleasing mouse that sits in the hand quite well. Slightly bulky though.
At the bottom of the mouse we see a couple of things, first the laser scanner, and we spot Teflon slides for easy navigation over any surface and two latches.
Once we open up one of the latches, we see that we have the storage compartments of the iron weights you can use.
Each weight is 5 grams and you can place it a little more to the left or right depending on your preference.
Mionix is a Swedish company that has been around for a couple of years and as such, for a company of their stature it will be difficult, but they'll try to compete with companies such as Logitech and Razer. Mionix tries to do things differently and desires to be a leading brand in the gaming market. Today we test their high-end gaming mouse, the Mionix NAOS 5000. Let's get the e-peen specifications out of the way first; the Naos 5000 is equipped with seven programmable buttons, 5040 dpi laser sensor, 1ms response time, 40,000MHz sampling rate and a tracking speed of 5.1m/sec. Numbers yeah... but do they uphold what they claim?
