It's smaller than the Kone but felt super comfortable to me when I tried it in a shop a couple of minutes - however the mouse buttons felt a bit - hollow - probably caused by their implementation of the switches.

They will also offer an optical sensor version of the Kone XTD but it will not carry the 3310 as far as I know but the S3988 which is a modified version of the 3090. So you should aim for the Pure Optical preferably.

I might consider picking up one of the new Kone opticals when they come out later this year. I do like the Kone Easy-Shift thing. If I do go with the new Pure, I will miss the XTD wheel's ability to tilt.

I do prefer the shape of the Naos - love it, in fact. They're both comfy for my palm grip, but it's like the Naos was molded specifically for my hand. The thumb buttons even line up so well with my thumb that I barely even need to move it; I press the front one with the tip of my thumb and the back with my knuckle. I will say that I do prefer the finish of the XTD. For lack of a better word, it feels "softer" to the touch. It'd probably make sense if you've felt both of them. I am supremely disappointed in the Naos's wheel, though. Not just because I miss the tilt of the XTD, but the XTD is silent and feels much more solid in construction. The grindy feel and noise while scrolling up on the Naos just about kills it for me. I'm starting to wonder if I was just unlucky with the Naos I received since I've read other people love the wheel, but I don't think it's "defective" so I have no plans on an RMA or anything. I may just be spoiled with Roccat's Titan wheel. It really is that good.

Wich is right now the best shape i ever had, but.. sadly, i am sending it back the third time already, because the mouse dies... First it was a wheel issue, now its simply freezing while gaming... lights go out, and i am without mouse for 5-10 seconds, in the middle of the fight... so its time for a change. I hope the NAOS 7000 is also this well shaped, but more reliable.
Some more questions:
1. Is the wheel clicky or smooth scrolling?
2. Are the software issues now sorted out? There was a lot of discussions here about earlier software and mouse versions...

The wheel is just right. Firm and easy to feel clicks but not too smooth. Nice feedback. There are no software issues with the Naos, that was only with the Avior.

So my new NAOS 7000 is also here smile.gif
Vejnemöjnen brought it from ikealand within 2 days.

I am comparing it to my (half dead) Func MS-3. The NAOS is smaller. It doesnt have a rest for the smallest finger on the right side. This is a down. I have to get used to it. The buttons are a bit harder to click, and also more audible. But they arent bad. Not much of a difference. The surface of the MS-3 feels more rubberized, while the NAOS is just matte black, and my hand slips off very easy. All in all, the MS-3 feels more robust, and heavy. It seems to be built better. But since it died on me for the secont time now, i think i stick with the NAOS a while.

What wonders me on the NAOS 7000, is that its dpi settig feels different. 1000dpi on the MS-3 feels quicker, than 1000dpi with the NAOS 7000.
But i dont really see, what dpi i am on. Ok i can live without dpi indicator on the mouse, but at least the software should tell me on wich setting i am right now from the 3 levels???

Btw, i have it on my Func 1030^2 mouse pad, speed side. The SQUAT tells me, that it is a 100% surface. But i also became a sargas mouse pad as gift with the naos. Didnt try that yet.

Oh and the wheel is also louder than on my MS-3. It has a weird crackling noise when scrolling, while the MS-3 is completely smooth.

The Naos 7000 is on my list now...you guys convinced me to move from the 8200. Just waiting on a good deal for it!

Hey guys, how do we clean it? Like there are oil spots that are hard to remove. I use a wet bounty and try to scrub it pretty hard and it takes real vigorous scrubbing. I'm afraid i'll slowly wear out the antisweat material.
is there a safe and effective way to clean it?

For the outside, just wipe it with a paper towel and rubbing alcohol. And then wipe again with a dry paper afterwards to get rid of the water residue. If the paper towel leaves a mess, you can use cotton balls.

hey guys, i just got my mionix avior 7000 two days ago

so far i really really like it but i have one minor annoyance..

if i open the mouse driver software my windows mouse sensitivity always gets reset to the default 6/11 (i use 4/11)

is there any way to stop this from happening?

I would not recommend you to use any sort of rubbing alcohol since it actually eats up the coating. Go for a microfiber cloth pad and pure water.

This. Rubbing alcohol has can crack the coating on soft touch mice very quickly.

Any way of changing the side buttons to control volume in Windows?
