    Default Mionix Naos 3200 Gaming Mouse

    Offering the same beautiful design but paring back some of the advanced features found on its bigger sibling, the Mionix Naos 3200 looks to hit the retail shelves at launch with a much more affordable and tempting $60 price tag.

    Good review Jake I really like the size of the mouse specifically the ring finger and pinky support they have.

    Good review! Nice mouse, Mionix has come a long way in the short time they have been around, and it's great to see a lower price on the Naos 3200.

    I've been looking for decent reviews of this mouse and yours seems to be the best written, so I figured I'd post some (hopefully) useful feedback.

    Calling an optical sensor less "powerful" than a laser sensor is a bit misleading because, while it has less CPI, CPI is largely irrelevant to the performance of the mouse, unless you have a ridiculous Eyefinity set up. It's akin to megapixels and cameras, where the highest megapixel point-and-shoot will still take terrible, grainy pictures compared to a DSLR.

    In fact, the current generation of laser sensors are less accurate and more bug prone than the best optical sensors, which have been out for years, and there are ways to objectively measure this. The original Deathadder's Avago S3668 sensor offered nearly perfect tracking speeds on any surface and the 3.5's Avago 3888 is almost as good, except on certain cloth surfaces where it jitters (there's a firmware update for it, not for the Abyssus though.)

    The optical sensor in the Naos 3200 is a bit of a legacy one, coming from the MX518 but it's still very, very good, especially at 1000hz polling rate. The one downside to that sensor is that it has mouse prediction/correction, where it attempts to interpolate your movements and adjust it to how the manufacturer thinks it should be moved. The easiest way to test this is to open MSPaint and try to draw a straight line. The human hand can't actually do it, but a mouse with prediction will. It looks like a kids' project, but it's how it's done.

    For most people, this is probably a non-issue, until you've been exposed to it and begin to notice the difference. Quake players especially take note.

    As for laser sensors, the Naos 5000 shares the Avago 9500 sensor with the Xai, G500, G9x and a few other massively overpriced Razer mice. It's probably the best laser sensor to date, doing away with the high malfunction rate that plagued the G5's, but it's got built in negative acceleration, that can't be done away with through firmware. Negative accel is basically the opposite of normal mouse accel; the faster you swipe the mouse, the less distance it covers. The normal (and easiest) test is to simply move your mouse across your entire mousepad, once slowly and then quickly. In an FPS, your crosshair should end up in the same spot both times (shoot the wall for reference.) Sometimes it's a problem with the game, sometimes polling rate, but any mouse with an Avago 9500 will have it. It also has built in positive acceleration but only to 5-10%, I believe.

    The only other decent laser sensor is the Phillips Twin-Eye found in a few newer mice like the Razer Naga, but it has some pretty big lift off issues that hurt it way more than the 9500's problems, imo.

    Anyways, thanks for the review. I came for the subjective stuff (especially about mouse size/comfort) but I thought you should know that there is an objective element to judging mice. Unfortunately, companies like Razer have clouded everyone's judgement with marketing hype (Hyper Response! Ultra high DPI! Gaming Grade!) so people think bigger/newer = better. If they wanted to, they could build a mouse with perfect tracking for 99% of users' resolutions that would have 7 buttons and come in all different shapes, but it would just be a modified version of their 3 year old products, so they couldn't confuse people into thinking it's worth $130 like a Mamba.

    Welcome to PureOC, Jibba!

    Thanks for the feedback, glad you liked the review. And thanks for your input, it is appreciated.

    I personally prefer zero accel on a mouse, and I do use a 3 widescreen Eyefinity setup. I like consistency above all I guess, and accel loses that, even if just a bit.

    The Naos 5000 is arguably the best all-around mouse I've ever encountered and the Naos 3200 isn't far behind, though it does lack the "snappiness" of its beefier sibling.

    I did also used to own an MX518, I loved it until it broke and finding a replacement was near impossible.
