Mionix NAOS-5000 - Page 3

post #21 of 27
Yeah I know the feeling bro. Nearly impossible to find the perfect mouse. I have never used the G9x, but it has always intrigued me. How is the mouse wheel? Loose like all the other logitech g series mice?

I have only had one problem and still don't know what happened.The mouse was double clicking while clicking once.I had to rewrite the drivers to the mouse and that fixed it.There was a little problem also with the usb not working when I first got it.Only when waking up my pc with the mouse if I use keyboard its no problem.Disabling the usb legacy support in bios helped with that so when I pulled out keyboard it didn't try to wake it bumping mouse.I LOVE the mouse so far after a few months.

Maybe dry lubricant like graphite or something would be good for the squeaking.

Tried WD-40 and that didn't work either. I'm probably just going to buy another one and take the one I have apart to see what the deal is.

Yeah I got a 5000 with the shakes or some ****. This particular mouse is horrible. Not only does it constantly lose tracking (using the propus 380) but the mouse wheel often doesn't register when I'm trying to change weapons in tf2 and bfbc2. I am thoroughly disappointed in the $90 dollar mouse that is the Naos 5000. If you have a motherboard that allows usb charging when the comp is off, get used to the mouses lights staying on. Not that big a deal, but yeah. Also, coming from always using a fabric mouse pad, this hard propus 380 is a pain in the ass to get used to. One small spec of dirt or dust causes my mouse to get hung up on it and make scraping sounds. Oh which reminds me, *** Mionix? Learn to make a mouse that has an even base. I have TWO 5000s sitting next to me and both wobble.

As you can see by this wall of text, I am pissed off. devil.gif I'm going to try the optical 3200. If I'm still not satisfied, then **** it. EC2 it is. Great mouse, but it fatigues my hand after an hour of use.

What is the best kind of mouse pad for an optical mouse? I'm about to head up to frys, so please shoot me an answer quickly. Yes I googled, but another few opinions can't hurt. My current EC2 is doing okay on this pad, but I don't like it being so hard (TWSS)

also is the lift off issue with the 3200 like REALLY bad? I play a ton of fps and lift my mouse quite frequently as I like to move my entire arm when playing rather than just the wrist.

Don't use graphite to lubricate anything inside your mouse. Graphite is conductive, and could cause problems with the mouse wheel rotary encoder. The mouse wheel encoder is basically a mechanical rotary switch, that uses three brushes or wipers (think of how a potentiometer or DC motor commutator works) to make and break contact between both the A & B signal pins vs. the common pin. If the graphite causes intermittent conduction, you could get random unwanted scrolling movement. If your mouse wheel is squeaking, you can use WD-40 or a silicon-base lubricant, preferably on the axle bearing points only, applied sparingly (i.e. use a toothpick, don't just spray all over). Avoid getting any on the encoder at all, if you can. Some petroleum-based oils can attack plastic, so I wouldn't recommend them either.

Naos 5000 owner here as well. My mouse wobbles on completely flat surface, ie. unusable on icemat (steelseries experience-i). Then I bought the Propus 380 mousepad (middle has become smooth, light signs of wear), and the my mouse does not wobble. I think because of the Propus380's semi-thick plastic surface material, it has some elasticity to it which nulls the wobble-ness of the Naos5000 mouse (apparently uneven base).
I have owned my Naos5000 since Jan' 2011, and the mouse wheel started squeaking since the first month of use. I temporarily resolve this by setting the "Scroll Speed" to max, which is 6 in the Mionix software, and when applied, Window's Mouse Properties shows the mouse wheel setting: Vertical Scroll per notch, 10 Lines. This forces me to go slow with wheel, notch by notch at a time instead of rapidly scrolling. For more accurate or quick scrolling, I can always just click and drag the side scroll bar.
And whenever I apply changes in the Mionix software, the applications locks up. If I really wanted to keep changes, I would have to Exit the software in the taskbar, in Windows Task Manager> End Task "Naos MONITOR" (this prevents clean reinstall of software I believe), Control Panel>Uninstall Programs>Mionix software... restart, install Mionix software, Apply all my custom changes again. Then it finally saves. -Alternatively, there is an option to export file of your saved configurations, then you would just have to import after the reinstall. Quite the hassle, but works from my experience.
I have sentimental value towards my mouse lol, therefore I have no intention of ridding it. I also have the up and down buttons to switch through profiles 1 to 5, each profile with its own three different DPI and its own lighting color. The result is blue, green, yellow, orange, and red light schemes, with technically "15 on-the-fly dpi settings." redface.gif very content with Naos5000.

My Naos 5000 does not wobble. It's a quality mouse though a bit pricey. I did notice that the stock skates really suck, and replaced them pretty much immediately. They are unrounded and the edges cause all sorts of scraping and friction on my Talent. I replaced them with some corepads and it's now my favorite mouse. It IS kinda irritating that so much attention and quality components/construction were put into this mouse to have the cheapest skates on the planet mounted underneath. Maybe the wobble some report is due to cheap and poorly mounted skates? The things are essentially hard plastic and a ridiculous amount of adhesive underneath. I can see how this combination could create bubbles and wobbles in addition to the scraping and friction I experienced. Just order some corepads and replace the feet ASAP. Other than that, I don't think anyone can deny that the Naos is high quality and made of materials that easily trumps everything else on the market. The design is really smart and unique as well.
