So I guess my G5 is no good?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I have been using this thing for years now but I'm reading that the senor is not accurate or something. I'm thinking that maybe it's time to try something new. It has always felt a bit small in my hand and after a long session my hand can get tired from gripping it (especially my right pinky (starts to lock up).

So now I'm reading about all these new sensors etc. I do game, mostly fps but other games too. So really I just started looking but this one looked like a comfortable design. http://mionix.net/products/naos-7000/

I use a giant cloth pad at home that both my keyboard and mouse sit on so I need to get something that will work well with that.

Take a look at the new Logitech G502 as well. Even better sensor than that Mionix. I have the Avior 7000 myself. Yes the G5 is highly outdated and has a highly limited max PCS.

It does not feel smaller just that my pinky hangs off the mouse so I have to keep it tucked which eventually leads to cramping during long gaming sessions. (I mean an actual sore hand if I use it all day) I believe my g5 was a replacement for my logitech mx1000 which I did always found more comfortable. I guess I'm in the minority liking the larger size. I also like a mouse that is heavy enough to not be affected by the cable when I switch back to the keyboard, so ultralights are no go unless wireless, but i want to get something for gaming.

Other than a shiny spot near my thumb the G5 mouse still works as good as new. Not sure what I will do with it. I'm thinking to bring the wireless mx1000 into work because of limited space and annoying cable problems due to the keyboard tray and desk height being different.

I have never noticed sensor inaccuracy but I'm not in denial that it's probably there. I never had a problem typing on my G15 either but absolutely find my new Blackbird much better for gaming, as well as this 96 htz oc monitor! what a difference a few small changes can make, and so I'm looking forward to trying something new.

edit: looks like my mx 1000 is dead now, the charging lights do not come on, so I guess the g5 can go to work in it's place...

If you're looking for pinky support and a larger mouse overall, then go with the Naos 7000 100%. It fits your hand like a glove. So comfortable. Now, if I could only lift the damn thing.

Any retail stores carry both of them? I'd like to see them both in person before choosing. Is the logitechs sensor that much better than the NAOS 7000?

I'm assuming Fry's and microcenter will carry both of them eventually. They have the Mionix mice now, but I don't think the G502 will be readily available for a couple more months. As far as the sensors go, nobody really knows just how good the G502 sensor is. The 3310 sensor has proven it's quality and the new logitech sensor looks to be following suit.

i have an avior 7000 (uses same sensor as the naos 7000) and I also picked up the G502 two days ago, so far I feel the G502 has sharper more precise tracking but the 3310 is not far off by any means.

i might also feel a difference because, although the 3310 is a great sensor, I cant stand the shape of my Avior but i think the build quality and software from mionix are top notch. its a great mouse.

Got home from camping and found my mx1000 actually did start charging at some point so I brought it into work. It's way more comfortable than my g5 was. Why did I have this thing sitting in my closet for so long!

The Naos 7000 looks perfect for my hand, but for home use I'm thinking I will be missing out on the extra buttons on the g502. The g502 looks about as comfortable as the G5 (not comfortable at all)...It is very hard to decide.
