I have had a kone plus. its a good mouse but i think the avago 9500 sensor is overrated. Not tracking so well on cloth is a let down in its self to people who dont like hard surfaces. I dont like accel.

I'd say second most - the best sensor in the world isn't going to help if your hand cramps up after five minutes of using the mouse. Comfort should be the first priority.

Yes its worth it unless you are poor and go around asking yourself that question everytime you buy the smallest thing

It is well wroth the price, best mouse I have ever used, I only paid $65 for mine during cyber monday but that was simply because I couldn't afford the full $100 price tag being a teen without a job. It is extremely comfortable and has lots of customizable options, while it doesn't track fantastically on a cloth pad I have had no issues using it on that surface.

I love my Mionix 5000.

What I like:
  • Insanely comfortable. It's by far the most comfortable mouse I've ever had.
  • Very customizable. DPI, weights, LED colors, etc can all be changed.
  • Works on just about anything. I use it on the armrest of my leather chair with no mouse pad and it works flawlessly. It also works fine on cloth too.

What I Dislike:
  • Mouse wheel squeaks. The odd thing is it appears as if it's related to the humidity in my room. Sometimes it won't squeak at all and other times it does it every time I scroll. Luckily, it's no where near as annoying as the squeaky Razer mice. It's more muffled.
  • The scroll wheel click is very quiet and very easy to accidentally press when scrolling
  • Expensive
  • While the weight of it is customizable some will find it heavy even without any weights

I would buy it again if I had to. The comfort of it is what I like the most.

Came in the mail today! Using it as we speak! Got my first killstreak on the crysis 2 demo, and I've been playing it religiously since it came out... Love it needless to say

Newegg sent out a promo code for 15% off all mice, which brings it down to $76 with free shipping. At that price point, would you give it the full 10/10 it deserves? Or is $76 still too much for what this mouse is, even though it fits almost every want and need I have for a mouse. Thanks for you input.
Hmmmm, seems to me there might be a NAos 5000 for 70 bucks shipped
