FUNC MS-3 vs Naos 5000?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So i need an new mouse, and one that can fit all fingers on the mouse/very ergonomic. I will pretty much ONLY be using this mouse for league of legends, and these two seem like they are the most ergonomic out there. I am aware that they both have positive acceleration, but due to me hanging up FPS games it does not really bother me. I will be using 800 dpi. So far i am leaning towards the MS-3, because of its bigger size and slightly more ergonomic, and has less branding, but i am worried that the side buttons (the one that glows) and the one that is right below the thumb rest will get in the way/just be annoying. I don't use any mouse buttons, all i use are the basic 2 side buttons for page back/forward. The Naos 5000 will be easier for me to get, as my local store sells them, whereas the MS-3 i will have to order from NCIX. The naos does have weight adjustment so thats a plus on their side.

Can anyone chime in who has tried/owned atleast one of these mice?

I own the Naos 3200 which is pretty much the 5000 without the weights. I love the 3200 for MOBA's because the middle click (click and drag screen) is really solid and has no to side to side play which was exactly what I was looking for when i bought it. I would buy the same mouse again if something were ever to happen to it. You can turn the lighting off if the branding bothers you. I have the light turned off on mine.

I'm looking at the Func MS-3 as well, though I own a Naos 5000. Mionix's mouse is uniquely comfortable due to the texture of the surface and shell design. If you aren't really concerned about the sensor then I can definitely assure you that if you pull the trigger on the Naos you will not be disappointed. I'm probably going to grab an MS-3 in the near future, just to see how Func's offering stands up to one of the finest mouse designs out there. I'm guessing it's pretty much identical to the Naos though.

The one caveat regarding Mionix mice -- the software. It's really clunky and I can't stand it. It's entirely unnecessary, yet it IS necessary. I imagine that 'aim' button on the MS-3 will irritate me, even though I intend to disable it. Why would you put a button at the pressure point of a grip design...?

Anyway, both mice look fairly identical. The finish on the Naos and the shell design is phenomenal and you can't go wrong. If Func has done all the same things, and improved with better software, they might have an edge.

If you are on Windows 8 or intend to upgrade in the future, DON'T get the Func. There's a ton of people (including myself) who have issues with it. Also, I doubt the software can get worse than this. It can't even read the settings that are on the mouse itself, just flash the new settings when you click "Apply". Thus, you can loose your entire profiles if you take it to another computer and want to change ANY setting. The same thing applies to dual-boot machines.

On the other hand, the shape and finish are amazing.
