Mionix Naos 5000 - Strong Option For A Wired Gaming Mouse.

12/5/2012 9:12:37 AM

The Mionix Naos 5000 is high-end gaming mouse for right-handed users. Its slightly rubberised plastic surface, with a contoured rest for your thumb, provides excellent grip. It’s slim and low-set, so may not suit those with large hands.

There are seven customisable buttons left and right click, scroll wheel click sensitivity up/down buttons atop the mouse, and two thumb-buttons which default to browser forward/black.

The thumb-buttons both sit above your thumb, so you have to actively reach up to press them assigned to functions you don’t want to activate by mistake, such as a screenshot. However, I like to use thumb buttons for melee or alternate attacks, where it helps if the button sits naturally under the tip of your thumb for quick and effortless activation.

The mouse’s weight is adjustable via eight five gram weights that can be slotted into banks on each side of the mouse. The two metre braided nylon cable is durable but weighty. Sensitivity is adjustable on-the-fly between three user specified presets (from 90 to 5040 dpi). An LED indicator shows your selection. The software is simple and usable, letting you configure up to five profiles, but it doesn’t let you bind profiles to specific running applications. One nifty aspect is the Surface Quality Analyser Tool that lets you use the mouse to check the quality of your mousing surface for Naos’ performance.

I liked the Mionix Naos 5000, but for the thumb-button positioning. If that’s not an issue for you, and you don’t have massive hands, then this is a strong option for a wired gaming mouse.
