Mionix Naos 5000 vs MX518

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I have a MX518 for about 2 years so it's showing wear and I want a new mouse.

Ive seen lots of posts about Mionix, is this a good upgrade??

I don't really need a bunch of buttons and stuff though, I just like how it looks

The NAOS 5000 is a downgrade because its sensor has un-turn-off-able acceleration. That's worse than the un-turn-off-able mouse prediction you're getting from your MX518, in my opinion. I'd also bet that the NAOS 5000 has a higher lift-off distance than the MX518. And of course, the NAOS costs a lot more.

If you like the looks of the NAOS and loved your MX518, I've got news for you. They have a love child called the NAOS 3200 which is, kind of, the MX518's sensor in the NAOS 5000's body.

The Naos 5000 has adjustable LOD from barely off the pad to inches,you can put it at where ever you want it unlike the deathadder where you mentioned using scotch tape.

I really don't notice the acceleration at all.I am not a pro gamer or anything but I have been playing FPS games for over 10 years and rarely slide out of 1st or 2nd in any Black Ops with this mouse.It was the same with my G7 too tho.I am still getting used to it tho and will only get better with it.

I wish all my people still played UT2004 modded pig servers,that would be the real test.Now that was the game imo.

I know, but I have a good feeling that, like adjustable weight in mouses, the choices are limited to "too much" and "way too much." That's why I said, "I'd bet."

What about the g500? I went from the mx518 to the g7, which I actually felt to be a downgrade, I preferred the mx518's optical sensor. From there I went to the g500 which is fantastic. The size and grip are better for my large hands, and the sensor is fantastic.

Also great is the g700, the grips are a tad different, I would say the g500 is suitable for anyone with medium large to very large hands while the g700 would be good for a medium to large hand.

Edit:

The g700 is also not weight adjustable. I prefer my mice on the heavy side, which the g700 is, so it's not an issue, but if you like lighter mice, the g500 is a better bet.

I'm with cuad although he exaggerates the problem with the avago 9500 sensor in the naos 5000

but the naos 3200 is a better buy

To turn off the acceleration open the Naos software, in mouse settings you can adjust it there and turn it off.

Nah it literally has 32 setting for LOD I like mine low.

To turn off acceleration stop putting Avago 9500 laser sensors in your mice. Cuad is talking about the sensor based positive acceleration that exists regardless of that driver setting.

I was using the mx518 for about 5 years now, great mouse, never failed me. I went to Fry's and picked up the Naos 5000, and I absolutely love it. Most comfortable mouse I've ever used, although I'm not able to use the software fully, could be the crappy laptop I'm on atm though. I'm not a stickler for what type of sensors a mouse has or doesn't have, but the 5000 just feels great and works flawlessly for me. No regrets buying this thing.
