There are better mice out there

Susan K Kasparek, Amazon
3 January 2013
  • Summary: Pros: The ergonomic shape feels nice in your hand, the scroll wheel has nice defined "clicks" at each position. Tracks very well. Build quality is good. Cons: If you pick your mouse up often, then don't get this mouse. The shape that makes it so comfortable, also makes it nearly impossible to pick up. If you do manage to pick it up, you'll likely hit one of the thumb buttons in the process. The LMB and RMB clicks were also very disappointing too.

Mixed feelings

T. Casaus "Tread", Amazon
28 December 2012
  • Summary: Perfect ergonomics. Excellent for ever day use. Not so accurate for a gaming mouse with the positive pointer acceleration that is built-in to this laser sensor. A shame that the sensor manufacturers get away with flaws and the mice sellers align themsleves with those manufacturers and play down the flaws.

Great feel, but twitchy response

Andrew Smith, Amazon
21 November 2012
  • Summary: I loved the way this mouse felt in my hand, larger in comparison to some others - but didn't feel like I was having to squeeze in on the sides due to being too narrow. After a few months owning this mouse the on screen cursor would become twitchy while playing games. It wasn't non-responsive, but it felt like the mouse was inverting all of my commands and limiting its movements to 1-2" across the screen.

  • Summary: Will not purchase this again or any Mionix product. Price is way to high at 90 bucks, worst tracking I've ever encountered. Wish NCIX would give me a credit towards buying another mouse.
  • Pros: Mouse and software look nice. It's comfortable, good size for big hands
  • Cons: One of the worst tracking mice I have ever had. Look on Mionix website, they have a note that if the lift sensitivity is set to low tracking problems occur. I've tried all i can do, can't use it for windows or gaming.

Pleytron, NCIX.com

  • Summary: Overall this is a nice mouse if it fits your hand, but I do feel it's a bit over-hyped. FYI I mainly use a palm grip, and I'm upgrading from an original Razer DeathAdder so a lot of this review will be comparing it and the Naos. My out-of-the-box experience was not all that great. The cable is >6" shorter than the DeathAdder. While for most people this would not be a problem, the fact that cable length is not provided in the specs made this an unpleasant surprise.
  • Pros: -rubberized shell coating is nice, -lots of bells and whistles, -smooth gliding, -good button placement
  • Cons: -may not work with legacy USB enabled, -scroll wheel button presses too easily, -the bells and whistles aren't implemented very well, -software is glitchy

A mixed bag of blessings and curses

StandardFiend, Amazon
12 January 2012
  • Summary: Here is what I will say right off the bat, just to make things perfectly clear: This mouse is COMFORTABLE. There's really no way to describe how it feels in your hand, so if you get the chance (see it at a shop, etc.) I highly urge you to try it out. That said, I think palm-grip users will find it slightly more comfortable than claw-grippers, but overall the difference is negligible.

So close but not it

Moe, Amazon

  • Summary: I wanted a mouse replacement for my desktop. I have had the Logitech MX Revolution for just over 2 years before the left mouse button stopped clicking. Unfortunately Logitech stopped making the MX as big as they used to so I started looking for a new mouse. I use my desktop for web surfing and gaming (strategy gaming, not FPS/Shooters). I am a right handed palm grip user (entire palm rests on the mouse) with pretty big hands.

Mionix Naos 5000 Review

Douglas I Munson, Amazon
19 September 2011
  • Summary: If one is looking for a great feeling mouse this is the one. The comfort and grip of this mouse is excellent. There are two aspects of this mouse however that a potential buyer might want to consider. First if you have a smaller hand print like mine, the buttons on the left side may be somewhat awkward to use. It's hard for me to depress button four without depressing button five.

This mouse is not for everybody, but if it is for you you'll love it.

Frank Castle, Amazon
21 August 2011
  • Summary: I'm very conflicted about this mouse. I will be comparing this mouse primarily to my original 1800 DPI Razer Deathadder. Yes the Naos 5000 is comfortable. Very comfortable. The additional width that is created by the pinky grip is not for everybody. I tried to adjust and while it is comfortable in general use, I find the pinky grip very obtrusive for gaming or more aggressive mouse movements.

Ganska bra

iaken, Prisjakt
10 July 2012
  • Summary: Lite lätt överhypad... Mionix har sparat pengar på musens material. Fötterna slits ner väldigt fort på deras egna musmatta, mionix propus. En udda sak vara att jag jag hade firmware 1.09 på musen. Så kom en uppdatering som heter 1.08. OBS denna musen har stora problem med musmattor i tyg.
