Func MS-3 or Mionix Naos

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
TLDR: My wrist hurts, might need to change to palm grip. Both mice seem to be exactly the same comfort wise. The one thing the func has that the mionix is missing is that little thumb button for sniper mode. I play 99% WoW and not a big fps guy but i do have like 70 steam games that i never play but who knows. The Func is 20 bux more right now than the 8200 and 40 more than the 3200. It seems that the func doesn't have much of a following here but he naos is well recieved.

For over a decade I have been playing a claw or fingertip grip on a low dpi setting. Combined with my terrible sitting posture and my tendency to lean in to the monitor more and more as the action heats up has led to quite a lot of abuse on my wrist. It wasn't until the release of Mists of Pandaria that it finally caught up with me.

Over the years the only game that ever sees any real play time is WoW. I have a huge steam library of games i have 0-10 hours in with the exception of the Fallout series and Mass Effect. I play a lot of long sessions at a high level. I have been in heroic raids and competed for gladiator on my mage. A lot of mouse moving and emo raging over the years. During the MoP release i was stuck working a schedule that wouldn't really let me raid or arena for the first couple of months of the xpac, so I decided to take a couple days off so I could go for realm first mage and play with my buds before having to disappear for a couple months. I went to Walmart and filled up my cart with hot pockets and redbull, went home and took a nap.

I woke up right as the server went back up. I logged in and headed for pandaria only to find that he first quest was broken and log jammed. Eventually I was one of the lucky ones that didn't spend an hour or two stuck on the helicopter trying to bomb the ship. Four hours in, I don't see any mages close to me on alliance side. That's when it happened. My wrist felt like it was being stabbed. Even the most minute movement hurt. When they chopped off Jamie Lannister's sword hand, I felt it. It was a pain and sadness that I had felt before.

So now months later I haven't played much except semi afking lfr. A lot of people I know quit. I was stuck working a crappy shift for 9 months instead of 2. But now I can play 5 nights a week if i want to. But I need to address my wrist. I have this little wrist band for basketball that I'm wearing. It actually helps, I was shocked. Just had it on one day after balling and it seemed to stabilize my wrist. I have moved my monitor closer to me so that it deters me from leaning in. I try to sit properly and make sure my arm is well supported and doesnt put my wrist at bad angles. I have upped my playing dpi on my mouse to 3200 in an attempt to lower the amount of movement I make. Man thats weird getting used to. I am going to try to do some palm grip and see how that goes. I have big hands and I play on a g500 which isn't good for palm, my pinky and ring finger just hang off the side and drag which kinda sucks so I am looking into changing to a Naos or func.

I have the Naos 5000 and I would highly recommend it (or the 3200/ 8200), the build quality and performance of the mouse is great and I've had no problems with it.

Naos (and not because I have it personally). The Func is based off the same design of the Naos because they blatantly ripped it off of the Naos 5000. Also, the Mionix has better software and support, and better build quality than the Func (after trying the Func at a local store).
