SteelSeries Sensei vs. Mionix Naos 5000

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I'm currently looking for a new mouse to replace my awful Razer Deathadder.

After reading several of reviews like:
http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/SteelSeries/Sensei/5.html
http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Mionix/Naos_5000/4.html

I'm not sure of which is better.

Any opinions or alternatives?

P.S. My deathadder has jittering issues + unable to scroll properly. I've gone around searching for solutions, where people state that a firmware update would fix the problem, but it has not. My brother's dell mouse works better than it... mad.gif

I have the naos 3200 and its a cracking mouse IIRC the 3200 actually has a better sensor than its more expensive big brother the 5000, ironic i know.

I also have the g400 and i now preffer it over the Naos3200, it just feels so much more acurate than the Naos despite the g400 not being as comfy in my hand. g400 now has no prediction and no acceleration even on a hardware level thumb.gif

I'm using the 5000. Read the posted review. I have no idea what wobble they are talking about. My mouse stays planted firmly on the pad unless i lift it. Weights help up to some degree. Most comfortable mouse I've ever used and the range of options are nice. I wont be using another mouse anytime soon.
