Mionix Naos to replace Steelseries Ikari

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've used my Ikari optical for the longest time and with it slowly falling apart and other problems I think it's time I get a replacement, something with a similar shape to it and the Mionix Naos seems to fit the bill, specifically the 3200 optical model as I don't see myself using the features of the more expensive models.

I use a hybrid claw/palm grip and I'd say whenever moving the mouse %95 of the time it's all from the wrist. I play at 1600dpi and don't bother with touching the sensitivity settings in most of my games, SOMETIMES however I do increase it a tiny bit like in BF3. I prefer to continue using my black cloth mouse pad so I'd prefer to stick with optical.

Looking to hear some input from anybody who's owned either of the 2 mouses and what they have to say. Open to other recommendations. Thanks guys!

I own the Naos 3200 and I really love it for the coating, grip style, quality, and aesthetics. After almost 2 years the mouse is showing no signs of age. The laser has never given me any issues and the clicks are still super crisp. Ive owned Logitech G400 and G500 mice and I dont miss them even though I really loved them too. The Naos 3200 is just my personal preference over the Logitechs. I just wish that I had bought the Naos 5000 for the weights, because I like a heavier mice.

Friend has Naos 3200 and I've heard nothing but praise from him. He bought it to replace MX 518. I tried it and IMO it's the most comfortable mouse yet, very light though. It looks really good in use, subtle and stylish. I plan to buy it sometime soon, already own Mionix Alioth mousepad.
