My friends hands are bigger than mine. He can cover the entire G500 from front to back. He can have his palm hitting back of mouse+mouse pad, and fingers touching the pad again but on the opposite end, totally going over the mouse. I'm about a cm and a half away from touching the pad in the front when I do that.

Quite impressive... (FREAK!)

I have more than 1½ cm left.

No comparison. The 5000 is twice the $ but worth every penny. I went from a Lachesis Mirror to the 5000. Best mouse I ever owned and I've owned 7-10 of them, including about 4 Razers, never liked any of the Razers.
I could write a paragraph on all the Pros but I can only find 1 small Con. It comes with 8 weights with excellent positions, they run the whole length of the mouse not just piled into the back half like the rest, but even though it has that excellent placement I can't get a position that levels the weight equally. It's always heavy on one side or the front or back. I use it now with no weights and it's a little back heavy. There's no center front weight slots (yes they're nicely slotted for a perfect fit, not just laid in there) just 2 front sides that makes it to front heavy. 1 front center weight slot would be perfect.
BUY IT. It's never on sale so you have to pay the full $100 for it. But as I said it's the best and last mouse you'll ever own.
I hear (never owned one) that the Steelseries is a good mouse and maybe as good as the 5000 for more $.

Never on sale? I got mine for 70 dollars at gamestop, and newegg has it for 10 dollars off.

I love my 3200, very similar to the mx518 but more comfortable and your hand doesn't ache after a long gaming session.

Another thing you were asking about but is really a waste of time because they're out of production. (pretty buggy) But the OCZ Behemoth is the perfect size for those of us with bigger hands, still small for me but it fits great. To bad it's buggy because it actually fits nicer then the 5000 and balances weight (or no weights) better then the 5000 to where you can find a level weighted position. The worse bug is the cursor will go straight up for no reason, so you find yourself in game running down a road looking straight up at the sky. I paid $20-$25 for it.

3. The reason why it's rattling is that you don't have a finger resting on it.

But interesting, you're one of the few I've heard had one of these. It was pretty tempting, but the G500 had superior specs (an extra button, higher DPI and 5 instead of 3 DPI steps), so that's what I bought. My friend was gonna get one, but ended up buying a Razer which disappointed me as I wanted to try the NAOS.

By the way, it still rattles with my finger on it. So did my first G500.

Also the breathe thing was an exaggeration...lol
Yes Khaotik your right except your middle finger goes on the right click button, ring and pinky go on the side of the mouse as described. It WOULD feel weird with 3 fingers on the 3 buttons. Especially when you don't use the middle button much. You have better control using your thumb opposite your ring and pinky fingers then just your thumb and pinky finger. You'd need a strong pinky.

Oops, corrected, ha.

I know this thread is a week old, but if you've come across it looking for info on the Naos 5000, stop reading and go buy it. Newegg has it for 70 bucks right now. Awesome mouse!

Ya, I've got the Naos 3200 and absolutely love it. The Naos 5000 is the same shape, but gets you more color choices, weights, and the higher + fully adjustable DPI.

Hi guys,

I was wondering how you all got on with the Naos 5000? I'm considering getting one but I have to buy online so I can't try before I buy . The most important thing for me is the shape and size. I have had pain from using a mouse in the past so the ergonomics are what attracted me to this product. At the moment I'm using a Roccat Kone + but I think its just a bit on the large side for me but a great mouse otherwise. I am not 100% comfortable with it though which is important to me due to past RSI. Before the KONE+ I had a logitech G9x which was my first high res gaming mouse. The G9 didnt seem ergonomic at all to me. It was to small length wise and has quite a strange feel. I used the Fat grip which was OK. The 'precision grip' just stressed my hand out. I feel very lost in a sea of 'High end' plastic. I've considered: MX518, G500, Razor ergonomic range:mamba,imperator,death adder. steel series kinzu and ikari laser
Any advise would be appreciated.

Thanks guys
bob
