The final three...four

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Looking for a new mouse for my son.

Loves his MSIE, but the scroll wheel and the side buttons are driving him crazy. It's the same reason I gave him the mouse and moved on to other mouses.

Anyway, his fianl choices are

1) Mionix Naos 3200
2) SS Xai
3)PureTrack Valor
*4)Zowie EC2

He isn't too concerned about grip style as he's bit of a cross of all three styles. Doesn't want a Logitech.

Which would you get, and why?

P.S. He's a bit impatient, so the Valor is the last on the list, also, I'd like some feedback on it before he spends his hard earned(works for his allowance) money on it.

*added the Zowie to the fray.

I would choose the Naos 3200 or Xai equally out of the three but the valor looks like it would feel terrible.
post #3 of 23
Your son is smart to not want a logitech.

Go with the Xai.

The Xai has horrible acceleration, maybe you can wait for the valor and check feedbacks.

Ugh I don't really like any of these mouses

The 3200 and Zowie have correction, the Xai positive acceleration. The Valor has neither in noticeable amounts, but no one knows for sure yet. Grip wise the Xai wins.

So, what's worse, a little correction or a little acceleration?
