Conclusion: The Naos 3200 isn't the greatest mouse ever made, but it does the job of a great gaming mouse without emptying your wallet. It comes equipped with a very similar shell to the Naos 5000, so it still feels great, but it is still missing a few bells and whistles that make it be in the upper echelon of gaming mice. I feel this mouse has definitely shown you don't need to buy a mouse with around a $100 price tag to get great results.
Pros: Plug and Play, High Quality Construction, Comfortable, Works on multiple surfaces well at the higher DPI settings
Cons: Limited customizability with the 2 built in LEDs, Does not come with as many accessories or software features that Naos 5000 does.
Summary: Despite the fact that I've not heard of nor seen any Mionix products for sale before here in the US, I was impressed with the function and quality of the Naos 3200. Upon first inspection, the packaging and product are very Razer-esque, offering a well finished look that belies their relative newness. The rubberized coating gives the mouse a nice feel and a sure grip, all the buttons work as they should and the scroll wheel turns easily yet has well defined stops.
Excerpt: Being a fan of big action video games puts some specific requirements on the gaming mice I use. Most of those games don't fare well with low DPI or slow polling gaming mice. In fact, the shape of the mouse and button placement affect the experience. If the mouse isn't tuned right, targets and objectives are missed.
Excerpt: , winning over the several models we've tested in the last few years. Now the Swedish company has released the Naos 3200, kind of an “economy car,” so to speak. By itself, it's one of the best mice we've tested, exactly because it keeps the strong features of its bigger cousin – essentially the comfortable body design and the easy and efficient configuration software.
Conclusion: Mionix is not the biggest name in gaming peripherals but they are makers of some of the best mice on the market. The Mionix Naos 3200 is their mid range gaming mouse entry which offers plenty of buttons and features for the price. It is a performance gaming mouse for a budget price. Will the Naos 3200 make you a better gamer, I don’t know.
Conclusion: Last Monday, when I arrived at home and decided to check my mail, I was quite surprised to see a large FedEx package at my front door. At first, I could not remember what this package was for, nor could not recall from memory which company uses FedEx at this time to ship me a product for review. Therefore, before opening the box, I decided to do was to take a peek at the shipping invoice.
Summary: The Mionix Naos 3200 mouse at £38 represents pretty good value for money, although there were some things I felt could have been improved. The mouse has a solid design and build and I really like its sleek black looks. It feels very soft and is comfortable to hold for long periods of gaming due to its rubber moulding.
Conclusion: When I first started using the Naos 3200 I didn’t think I’d use the feature that allows you to change the DPI settings on-the-fly but after actually experimenting with it I found it quite useful, even if the buttons set as default got accidentally hit occasionally. I also liked the fact the LEDs on the mouse-wheel and Mionix logo changed depending on what DPI settings you’re using.
Pros: Comfortable design, Fast and accurate, On-the-fly DPI switching, Gold plated connector and braided cable
