Summary: Customer Support and lift distance are the two big things that lowered this score. If you don’t lift the mouse, and don’t care about customer support, then this mouse is worth buying, otherwise you can find cheaper options.
Excerpt: Let's start off with me admitting that before I had started this review, I had never heard of Mionix. As I was offered the mouse for review, I did my usual bit and started checking out their products, website and various other user reviews and thoughts. The Mionix software has a cool trick up its sleeve - along with the usual sensitivity and DPI adjustment, there's a LED adjuster too. I changed my LED to blue so I felt like I was using a TweakTown colored mouse.
Conclusion: The Mionix NAOS 5000 is an excellent gaming mouse. It is by far the most comfortable mouse we have used in a long time. It might take a day or two to get used to, but after that, it is an excellent mouse. It comes loaded with features and a software that is both aesthetically pleasing and useful, something we don’t always see. Some might be disappointed at the low number of buttons, but we actually prefer that mice are not overloaded with buttons.
Summary: In conjunction with my review of the Mionix SARGAS and ENSIS mouse pads I also received the NAOS 5000 gaming mouse that is definitely a gaming grade peripheral with a special little surprise under the hood.
Conclusion: The DPI on this mouse is able to be changed, with a DPI ranging from 90 to 5040. On-the-fly DPI switching is also included, with two buttons placed on the mouse to accomplish this. The polling rates are also able to be changed. The Naos 5000 contains all the performance expected in any high-end gaming mouse. This mouse features an all-black, sleek, ergonomic body paired with 4 customizable LED lights. As you can see, the appearance of this mouse is phenomenal.
Summary: Overall, the Mionix
NAOS 5000 Performance Gaming Mouse
boasts a really polished design that should please any elite gamer. It will definitely exceed any casual gamer’s requirements and expectations. Like any other gaming mouse, you’ll need a little time to get use to the very smooth surface feeling of the buttons on the side. Otherwise, the DPI is on point and really responsive on a good gaming surface.
Conclusion: This mouse is excellent, it is very comfortable and it is one of the faster mice response wise that I have tested so far. Design wise it’s made to fit both big and small hands. After using it for a week I can for sure say it works both for normal daily usage and top FPS gaming.
Conclusion: Overall the Naos 5000 is a solid performer with some nice software tricks up its sleeve. I still think the shape of any given mouse is the main thing, and the Naos fits my hand perfectly. The build quality, apart from the weight doors, is great: the surface finish is pleasant to use for long periods at a time, and the sleeved cable gives the mouse a nice high quality touch.
Pros: Fits my hand perfectly, Finish of the surface, Easy-to-read DPI leds
