In fact, I think I might have gotten a returned mouse, as the bottom of the mouse had a small smudge. As for real problems, both the scroll wheel and the colors are messed up. The scroll wheel makes a loud noise at times when scrolling up (although it is slightly better now then the first time I scrolled). One of the DPI buttons is a darker color than the rest, looking purplish/reddish most of the time. Also, the colors do not usually match what is displayed onscreen when selecting them. The worst offender is the dark blue pre-select which is actually very purple - the only way to get blue is to set it manually at 0 0 255 which does not help if you want to select individual buttons as you have to use the presets; also the red is not very red. Are the LEDs better on anyone else's mouse? At the very least, the DPI button being a different shade of color than the remaining buttons is unacceptable/defective.

As a positive, the mouse is very comfortable.

Where to begin. First...yes the box does have one round seal that binds the box shut. Sounds like you may have received an 'open box' if no sticker at all was sealing the box. Any marks at all underneath the belly of the mouse would suggest someone used it first because mine arrived unmarked brand new and sealed.

Color wheel. The color wheel does have some funky colors that are in between solids it seems. If I want a solid color I set the RGB myself for best results. Color issues on mice isn't subjective to just Mionix. I don't like to knock down other mice to compare another but it seems mice with multi-color LED seem to have some imperfection with LED or colors. Still find the Mionix has as plenty of options when comparing with other color mice I've had. I set it to color shift through the color wheel or if I set it to a solid color I choose from the RGB color wheel myself.

DPI switches. Yes the top DPI switch is slightly darker than the bottom using pre-set colors. Keep in mind not diffused color but just darker.

Now here is my solid pink color I set myself using customized RGB 229-0-229 which I prefer just a bit tweaked.

I did a review on this mouse and I could only pick at the color white and LED placement on the scroll wheel as it's faults. The four point color options not allowing for customized RGB settings is not an option where other mice with multi colors do allow for customized RGB points as well as from the color wheel. However I found the mice allowing for four different colors to different points of the mouse seem to all come with LED faults or color diffusion and this one isn't spared.

Set color aside, the mouse performs as a high end mouse should. Solid build components, feels amazing for palm grip, and with an updated A9800 laser sensor. I couldn't find anything to pick on otherwise technically or performance.

However I do understand that color is part of the reason some people choose mice. If your dissatisfied I'd return it. They aren't cheap and you should feel good about your purchase.

Personally I place what's important to me about a mouse on performance so for me it's a non-issue. I did find that Red is more of a 255-0-0 / Blue 0-0-229 on this mouse.

Anyone here that had to return a Mionix Naos 3200 because of a stuck thumb button (the back button). Mine isn't working anymore and locks up my system. I send it back to the reseller as it is still under warranty, i saw some people on newegg complain about this issue too.
I hope my replacement will do better since i really love the grip of the mouse, this one failed within 7 months.

I .

Thanks for sharing, I had a feeling that the off color was by design due to the tech of the LEDs. Can you check the pre-set dark blue on your mouse - is it purple? I can of course get dark blue manually selecting 0 0 255 values.

The big issues I had and was unacceptable was the scroll wheel and dpi select buttons. A $90 mouse shouldn't make a weird noise when scrolling up at 1 specific spot on the scroll wheel (this is in addition to the normal sound the scroll wheel makes). As for the DPI select button, on certain colors the top DPI select button was just plain wrong (bottom DPI select button was fine). Instead of being a light blue shade like all the other buttons, it was purple, etc. Some colors like pure green or pure blue worked just fine, although it was shaded slightly darker. Having the top button sometimes being a completely different color than the remaining buttons is also not acceptable for a $90 mouse. I think it has something to do when lighting up multiple LEDs because when I did a 255 0 0 or 0 0 255 type of thing, the button color was correct.

I went ahead and applied for an exchange - hopefully the new mouse is actually sealed and defect free. Although I might cancel if the estimated date is actually true - it estimates a 1 month wait time...

Checked the blue on the pre-set colors and it's not really blue but it's not purple. More in between blue and purple. Pre-set color wheel do have some funky in between colors as I said. However if I use the RGB pallet the colors are perfect. I wonder why Mionix went in between colors for their wheel or didn't add the solids?

During the color shift it shows the entire color wheel nicely with solids and in-between colors. I guess I could have dug deeper into the colors more in my review but felt it was secondary and stuck with performance primary.

purdy lights don't make it faster, performance is where the mouse matters your review was great

Anyone still having any issues with the double click on the naos 5000? It's driving me nuts and none of the firmwares are fixing anything. I'm surprised it took me this long to come to the conclusion but I'm just going to try to sell it. It's a shame because it's an otherwise great mouse. However I'm very disappointed.

I did until I upgraded to the beta firmware. I don't really have any other suggestions for you other than trying it again. Good Luck!

Does anyone have the 1.17 software installer for the Mionix 5000 series? I'd really appreciate it if anyone could provide it, thanks.

Google search brough this up Softpedia. Let us know if it works.

However the Mionix Download Page shows 1.16 drivers latest.

Oh, I've googled a ton. It doesn't appear to be for download on the internet. I've been to around 200 sites, and they are either Russian sites trying to give you a virus, or something that links here: http://mionix.net/datas/users/mionix_naos_5000_software_version_1.17_0.zip (which has since been taken down) . Not a single one seems to actually *have* the installer. Thanks for trying, though.

EDIT: Actually, a user I private messaged was kind enough to upload the software for me.
