Now to the feelings....nothing but them feelings...biggrin.gif

MSIE 3.0
Comfort: 3
Build: 2
Gaming: 4
Work: 5

Naos

MS X8
Comfort: 5
Build: 4
Gaming: 5
Work: 4


MSIE 3.0
Been using this same mouse on and off for years....maybe even since MS brought it out. Old reliable...if it wasn't for the flimsy feeling it has.
Tracks great and is very light, but all the good points are weighed down by the bad quality of the mouse, and it's not even that "cheap" price wise. It did have the lowest LoD and that's good cause some hard landings makes the side buttons press. frown.gif
Very little prediction makes it easy to work in Illustrator or Corel Draw.

Naos 3200
I was very excited about the Naos, and when it arrived, I was like a kid. My son had to LoL when I texted him asking for permission to test it. biggrin.gif
I opened the box and was very pleased with the build and quality.
Fit my palm/finger tip grip like a glove. I could also see claw grippers using it without problems due to the low profile.
Also the rubbery feel of the whole mouse was very pleasing. smile.gif
I only play FPS and the Naos performed flawlessly for me even though it had the most prediction out of all the mouses. as seen in the MS Paint pics.
I would hate to do any graphic work with this mouse though due to the prediction.

MS Sidewinder X8
This is still my favorite mouse. As comfortable in the hand as the Naos, but gets one more point cuz it's wireless. It wieghs a bit more, but has less lift off distence so it's kind of a wash.

It gets a point less than the Naos in build cuz it's made of too many parts. The Naos shell looks like it's made of two maybe three pieces, the X8 looks like 7 or 8...lol. Me, being old school, too much parts = no good. smile.gif
Tracks great and has little prediction so it's a pleasure to work with and game...and it's wireless. ;D

How old is that 3.0? Looks like a Pre-07 model (which has better build quality than the current ones on the market).

Very old. I had it as lomg as I can remember. When they came out, I bought 3 or 4 of em and they are all gone now.

I took this pic of the three color variations of the MSIE 3.0 a few days ago.

I don't remember a black one o: What color are the side buttons? Similar to the original (middle) or respawn (far right)?


If I were to guess, it's older than the respawn, but newer than the original.

if you look hard they are like the current models ones, light grey.

I really don't remember when I got the black one. redface.gif
Maybe from Alienware when MS stopped the first run and the second run hadn't come out yet.

I had to take a closer look at the black mouse and holy cow... wth.gif
It's black due to use. It is the second version, but the dark grey is gone from wear and the black plastic is showing. eek.gif

Even the side texture paint is coming off and the shiny plastic is showing thru...talk about usage...
