Having just unboxed my new toy Mionix NAOS 5000 a couple hours ago its by far the most comfortable mouse I have set my hand on (large hand long fingers) yes it has a slight prediction but its very hard to notice for me at least maybe2-3%. its feels less then the replaced Logitech MX518.

the new software 1.16 is set it and forget it and your able to turn off acceleration if you choose or it has 3 settings everything is highly customizable. Im in the process of doing a small writeup or review to help other that was in the same boat as I was choosing this mouse.

Bare in mind you must use a palm grip with this mouse, the right side finger rests stretch out pretty far making it impossible to get a grip similar to a 1.1 or 3.0 mouse.

I can't use it for FPS games because of that but it feels really good playing RPG's and other games that don't require extreme precision. But that's just a matter of personal preference really, if you've always used a full palm grip there's no issue.

Naos 5000 is an awesome mouse. Smart right handed palmer design, really high grade rubberized material all over, really nice switches. Really bad skates though. Recommend you have some replacements immediately out of box. Mouse is really wide but has a very low hill which is a unique combination that feels a little strange at first. Sensor on the 5000 has it's quirks (Avago 9500), I wouldn't say any of them are deal breakers. It's possible the 3200 might actually be the better mouse as far as the sensor goes, but I can't speak to that. The overall design is just plain functional, which I like. There aren't too many buttons, or an explosion of LED's going on all over this thing like a lot of 'gaming' grade mice.

The one other minor gripe is the weighting system. I don't use'em and find them to be gimmicky, but did mess with the weight system on the Naos a little and it is definitely a clumsy/useless after-thought on an otherwise very well designed and manufactured mouse.
