well to be fair, i wouldn't remove a point from a product just because they have "over the top" marketing strategy. I'd rate it on how much it actually performs in real life.

I like to believe that they are trying to have an aggressive marketing approach since they're relatively the underdog in this product category. (Relative to Razer and the like). And I think you have to give them some credit for that.

That said, I think mionix will most likely win this battle at the moment because base on what i've read on other forums, the kone+ has roughly 20% failure rate. With failure mostly attributed to its scroll wheel's build quality. On the other hand, naos 5000 has more or less been fairing rather smoothly in terms of customer/user feedback.

Definitely recommend the Naos 5000 if you are a palmer. Wide base and ring and pinky flanges. Fills and supports your entire palm and flanges prevent finger drag. The build quality of the mouse is exceptional, and the material the shell is made out of is quite unique and comfortable. Aside from the LED's the Naos is strictly utilitarian. Very specific shell design for palmers, minimal button layout...though I don't see why one would need more. There is undeniably a very clear intention to every aspect of this mouse's design.

I haven't used the Kone[+] but I'm a little off-put by the exaggerated CPI claims, when it simply uses an Avago 9500. This seems like an outright lie. Also what the heck is a Tracking and Distance Control Unit. Supposedly Roccat integrated this into their Avago 9500 sensor? Again, I'm going to guess this is marketing spin, and is just a reference to something that already exists onboard the Avago 9500. This is further proven by the fact that my Mionix Naos 5000(Avago 9500) has modifiable lift-off/angle-snapping through software (which I'm guessing is what the 'TDCU' does on the Kone[+]). It sorta puts me off a product when the company misrepresents most of the technical specs and just assumes their consumer base is full of idiots. Admittedly, the shell design looks interesting and I wouldn't mind giving it a whirl. At the end of the day it's as good as any other Avago 9500 sensor based mouse, and really the only deterent could possibly be the build quality (which I don't know anything about).

Roccat is the goofiest company I've ever seen, their website is comedy gold.

Get the Mionix.
