New Mionix NAOS 8200 DPI Gaming Mouse - Page 7

However, as VERY satisfied owner of the Mionix Naos 3200 I can safely say they really kick ass. They're just so ergonomically comfy. That's what makes the 3200 a good mouse beyond the 3060 sensor: the shape, weight, etc. I never knew how much I wanted a pinky rest on my mouse until I had one. And they did the rubber coating right and nearly the entire thing is covered. Heck, I even recommend the mouse to non-gamers. Turn off the internal LED & it's just a comfy mouse for business/casual use. The feel & construction is top notch. Still going strong after a couple of years of heavy use. -All that applies to the 8200 as well, since all three Naos models use the same shape, it sems.
And yeah, I think the weight is off on the Mionix website - the mouse has always felt fairly light to me.
There are two drawbacks to Mionix Naos mice which could be deal breakers. The mouse is right-hand only (which is hilarious, given the company sponsors the left-handed professional gamer Naniwa). And it's not the best mouse if you constantly lift the mouse while gaming. I game at 800 DPI, so I don't lift the mouse much. And it's not hard to lift. But it's not designed specifically for that, so perhaps there are better mice if you're a compulsive lifter.

I found if I set a higher DPI gaming the need to lift the mouse lessened. I've re-trained myself to keep it down in many more situations and quick turns as well as allowing for wider turns and range. In the Sensei with their ExactTech software you can adjust the lift distance with ExactLift.

One thing I am going to have to get re-used is switching DPI in situations when scoping again since I've been using ExactAim which slows down the scoop when aiming with right click down. So beside for ExactAim I'm going to be fine. Can't wait to give the 8200 a try. smile.gif

You can't keep good precision in higher sensitivity and higher dpis are generally a bit jittery but to each his own.

Honestly I don't see why people would need anything more than 400-800 dpi espcially for fps, you don't need more than that for fps games it may be different for other kinds of games suchs as rts's or rpg's

Reviews for the NAOS 8200 are starting to come in.

Mionix Naos 8200 Gaming Mouse Review
Quote:
The mouse sensor performed admirably in my testing for the most part. My mouse pad can be rather fussy with highly accurate laser sensors and the Naos 8200 performed well. Unfortunately every few hours of use I noticed that the mouse would go a little crazy once in a while during gaming. If it was a first person shooter, it’d force my camera view up and start spinning wildly in circles. Lifting up the mouse and finding a new spot on the mouse pad would fix the problem. For reference, when I checked the Surface Quality Analyzer Tool on the mouse’s drivers, I would get an 80% rating for surface quality.

Edited to add:

I'm going to chalk up the anomaly with the camera view spinning wildly in circles until lifting the mouse to find a new spot to stop it to the mouse pad choice of the reviewer. For him to state that he must of knew he should have used a better surface. The fact 'Surface Quality Analyze Tool' gave an 80% rating would confirm he was right. Going to see if I have the same thing happen on an aluminum brushed surface I'm sure to yield a 100% rating for the analyzer. Can't have that happen in crucial moments would = death.

Mionix has updated their flagship mouse, the Naos 5000 to the 8200. The new mouse has a more precise 8200 DPI laser sensor driven by a 32bit ARM processor running at 72mhz.


Well received the UPS shipment. thumb.gif

In the meantime here are the software screen shots for those interested. Just as I thought the Mionix Ensis 320 brushed aluminum mouse pad gave a 100% quality surface reading. Tried my older Razer Vespula out of curiosity and it yield 80%. Aluminum feels different and a bit more friction with less gliding than the hard surface of Steel Series 4HD or Razer Vespula I'm used to.

On way to work with no time to play with it right now. Quick iPhone photo.

Well gave the mouse test a try for the first time and here are my results.


Enotus Mouse Test v0.1.4
Mouse: @msmouse.inf,%hid.mousedevice%;HID-compliant mouse
Model: Mionix NAOS 8200
Resolution: 8000 dpi \excellent\
Polling speed: 1000 Hz
Max speed: 0.51 m/s (159083 points/s) \ok\
Precision: 98.8 % (0.01 m/s) \excellent\
Smoothness: 12.0 % \ok\
Debug data: [('12', '0.08'), ('13', '0.07'), ('12', '0.07'), ('14', '0.07'), ('11', '0.07'), ('11', '0.07'), ('12', '0.07'), ('10', '0.07'), ('9', '0.07'), ('10', '0.07')]

Will be gaming with it this weekend where I can extensively see performance.

Feel of the fully rubberized mouse is unlike any other I've held before. The shape is like someone put their hand into a clay mold and made this mouse shell. I can confirm what others have said about Mionix perfecting the right handed palm grip style mouse. Love the style and aesthetics myself but beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

As for the Mionix Ensis 320 I can tell this mouse pad is really attributing to improving tracking with the mouse. I like the style as well and if there is any con to brushed aluminum mouse pads is they are truly cold. I'm going to assume I will get used to the cold touch eventually probably more so in the summer than right now in the winter. However may be looking toward another hard mouse pad if not. tongue.gif

Thanks for posting this! Love the look of mouse itself and software looks nicely done. Testing results also looks nice.
