Should I buy the Naos 5000?

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for a new mouse to replace my CM Storm Sentinel as I've gotten bored with it.

I don't have a budget, but if I'm dropping $200 on a mouse, I better get a "happy ending" after my gaming session .

Seriously though, the Naos 5000 looks like a killer mouse, and it doesn't seem like there is much that can beat it. Should I buy the Naos, or is there a better option?

Also, I don't want a G5, G500, G9, or Lachesis.

Have you considered Microsoft sidewinder? I have one and I LOVE it. It only has 2 extra button. But Since I only play FPS mostly it fits my needs. Its not too expencive but Its very good IMO.

I have the sidewinder - and whilst it is good, once you start to get better at fps, you start looking for a better mouse

I am also considering the naos 5000 - but I don't understand what a claw-grip mouse is. I don't want something small, as I have large hands

awesome will most likely get this mouse + the mionix keyboard

in the meantime. I was trolling through dealextreme and found a mouse called sunsonny? anyone heard of it? I found them cheaper on aliexpress for $8.50 shipped. It looks like a decent casual mouse

any opinions?

Do a search for the mouse on these forums, you should find some reviews/opinions on the mouse. Not sure I would buy the keyboard.
