My answer is no because the sensor has un-turn-off-able acceleration and probably has a high lift off distance. And of course, it costs too much.

The NAOS 3200 is better, but still there are better mouses out there.

What is this un-turn-offable acceleration? I just did a quick test and noticed no acceleration. Also the lift distance is fantastic, maybe a 1/2 cm at most.

edit: What I am saying is that this mouse is fantastic.

I only got my Naos 5000 yesterday but so far it's fantastic! Super comfortable and the software is great. You can customize pretty much everything.

Half a centimeter is more than 4 CD(1.2mm) which is terrible. A good mouse's lift off distance is less than 2 CD and closer to 1 CD. Lift distance can vary wildly depending on the surface, so I can only say that mouse X has high lift off distance on one surface.

Some crappy old Microsoft wireless mouse, I am no expert on mice but this mouse fits my hand great for a palm grip and I have never had liftoff or acceleration issues.

Thanks for posting your worthless anecdotal evidence.

There's a reason why I'm replacing this mouse.

what is your screen resolution? what mice did you had before? are u palm grip or claw grip? do u use cloth or hard mousepad (or your desk too)? i didn't tried the mionix 5000 before but it seems a big heavy palmgrip mouse with a worthless high-lod laser sensor, i don't think it worth the price. You may take a look at the new puretrak mouse or the deathadder, both have better sensor (the puretrak mouse isn't released yet, but it has an improoved version of the deathadder's sensor so...)
