I suggest not purchasing mice from Mionix

Ron G., Newegg
29 June 2013
  • Summary: I am a very neat, clean and organized individual. I keep everything I own in pristine condition, even though I use whatever I buy very often (daily). I never beat on anything I buy (e.g. slamming my mouse).
  • Pros: * My original review of this mouse can be found on page 11, just look for the nickname [?]72uger. It's a nice mouse aesthetically, but in usage terms it is not so great after owning it for quite a while, which I will explain below in "Cons."
  • Cons: I have owned this mouse since November 6, 2010 at 2:44 AM EST. It was a great mouse while it lasted, but it recently started malfunctioning. What it does: • Software no longer works as it once did and even when I uninstall it, and reinstall it, it still will not work and simply crashes. I can sti...

Laser has a mind of its own, totally useless mouse

Amazon Customer, Amazon
3 February 2013
  • Summary: I got this mouse at the insistence of my Swedish friends, as I do professional gaming on PC. The first one I got had a laser that would randomly go off doing loop-d-loops (not sure how to spell that out) and making the mouse unusable.

nice while it worked...

George M., Newegg
8 October 2012
  • Summary: Do yourselves a favor and buy a mouse that will last longer with some use on it.... I am going to buy a logitech for my next gaming mouse and get a 3 year warranty
  • Pros: Comfortable, nice change on the fly dpi
  • Cons: This thing sat most of the time on my gaming computer, didnt get used all that much and died in slightly over 1 and a half years. For an 80 dollar mouse the durability is not very good. I received a warranty card in the box for 2 years and support said that was for the EU not the USA so they woul...

  • Summary: This mouse was nice while it worked. This mouse was comfortable, very accurate and had a great dpi on the fly switch. So you ask why do I rate it a one star? Well, I have laptop for work that gets alot of use and a gaming computer I don't use that much.

stutter problem

Ryan J., Newegg
22 January 2012
  • Summary: I am going to wait and see if an driver update fixes the problem. 5 eggs if it fixes the problem. I am running Windows 7 64 home. Specs. Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz EVGA SuperClocked 012-P3-1573-AR GeForce GTX 570 ASRock P67 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel P67 CORSAIR Professional Series HX850...
  • Pros: Shape, Feel, weight system.
  • Cons: As stated on here a few times the mouse will start to stutter and affect any program running. Games start to lag, VoIP's like mumble will start to skip. Unplugging and replugging help for a short time.

I been had.

Daniel C., Newegg
30 December 2011
  • Summary: When I first got this mouse I was extremely excited. It felt amazing, worked great, and looked awesome. So when I first reviewed it, I gave it the benefit of the doubt and looked past all the CONS. Turns out I should not have done that.
  • Pros: - Highly customizable - - Custom color LEDs (red, blue, green, orange, yellow, pink, you name it) - - DPI settings - - 3 Profiles - - Adjustable weights - Perfect feel
  • Cons: - Drivers don't get updated ( EVER ) ... - Bad drivers cause lag issues in certain circumstances ( too frequently ). - I owned my Naos 5000 since the beginning of November until it died on me on the 26th of December. TERRIBLE lifespan. - Driver software rarely responds correctly when making chang...

User Review

Nathan L., Newegg
18 November 2011
  • Summary: The software and color change (ideas) are very cool. If only they could get it to actually work. So frustrating to spend this amount on a nice looking LED mouse then have SOOO many problems with it.
  • Pros: It's cool how the cord is made of like nylon fabric instead of plastic wire. (don't buy this mouse).
  • Cons: Need to go to the website to install a program for the drivers. This program is soooo buggy. My computer would freeze every time I tried to access it. Finally I got it to install and then whenever I opened it to change the settings/colors/sensitivity levels of the mouse it would freeze my compute...

Broken w/ Win7 64

Adi R., Newegg
2 October 2011
  • Summary: I got in touch with Mionix support. This is what they said "This is a known issue with some motherboards/windows 7 x64 and we are currently working on a new firmware that will eliminate this issue. The new software/firmware update will arrive the upcoming week and can be found on our homepage.
  • Pros: Great features, excellent ergonomics, stores settings in mouse, does not need software to be running on PC.
  • Cons: Broken on Win7 64 bit w/ some motherboard combos. Basically, the mouse causes the whole system to stutter until it is unplugged and re-plugged. Obviously, it is not suitable for any serious gaming. Paid $89.99 in hopes of having an ergonomic gaming mouse.
