Mionix Naos 5000 vs MX518 - Page 2

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.

Were you wronged at some point in your life by a Mionix Naos 5000 mouse? This is like the third thread today I've seen you post in complaining about the un-turn-off-able acceleration that, after running my own tests, I can't seem to notice and the lift off distance that, while you may say is high, I can barely replicate because I have trouble holding the mouse off the pad at a stable height that close to my mousepad.

Edit: The only complaint I have about this mouse is that of the two orange colors available I am not a fan of either, one is leaning to far towards yellow and one is strangle pinkish...

I see two Naos 5000 owners defending their purchase, nothing more.

From an unbiased perspective the sensor has positive acceleration and has a problem with tracking at higher speeds on cloth pads. I have been through three mice that use the same sensor. If you can't notice it then... well I'm sorry to hear that.

But still I think you, cuad and the wmo guy are exaggerating the problem. If you use a high dpi, on a cloth pad then you might get around 4% acceleration which not everyone will notice

If you use low dpi and especially on a hardpad theres no problem

Just for reference I do think optical sensors like the avago 3090 are superior which I have in the mouse I'm using now

They are claiming that the problem doesn't exist, which it does, at all DPI levels. The positive acceleration cannot be disabled and is present on all surfaces.

When I was buying my G500 and Xai I wish someone like myself was telling the truth instead of people blind to problems about their recent mouse purchase. My post noting the positive acceleration on all surfaces and the negative acceleration on cloth pads is the truth and not exaggerated. The mouse is definitely usable if you can deal with those flaws but it pisses me off when people say the problems don't exist.

lod isn't an issue if u don't lift the mouse. Personally, i don't like having positive accelleration that I cant turn off, but in the avago 9500 it is so low that it cant be noticed unless you are a very picky mouse-nerd or a premier-div pro gamer.
the thing i don't like about laser sensors is the negative accelleration on cloth, that can be noticed only on medium/ high speed - medium/low sens, and the complessive "feel", but this is only me.

Can't speak to the 5000, but the 3200 is awesome. I bought 2, and likely will get a 3rd here soon for work, not just for comfort and awesomeness but also for the sake of my yeti hand's health.
