Boasting up to 5040 dpi, switchable profiles and a unique weight tuning system, the Mionix Naos 5000 stands above all else. As a newcomer to the computer peripheral scene, Mionix, a small company based in Sweden, may not be a name familiar to gamers. However, this doesn't stop them from providing a wide range of solid gaming accessories. In this article, Benchmark Reviews takes a look at the Mionix Naos 5000. Keep reading to find out if this mouse really is light-years ahead of the game.
Due to the vast amount of gaming mice available, new mice require certain, unique features to make them stand out from the crowd. Mionix seems to have reinvented the wheel with the Naos 5000; instead of adding new features, they refined the definition of the generic high-end gaming mouse. Increased DPI, onboard memory, quickswitch profiles, a weight tuning system, and a sleek look are the aspects Mionix thought about while designing this mouse. Although nothing here is new, all these features are seamlessly integrated into an ergonomic mouse. Coupled with a powerful software backend, this mouse is uniquely designed, suitable for gamers with a variety of needs.
The Mionix Naos 5000 was not designed to be revolutionary or groundbreaking in any way. However, it was created to be a powerful mouse, aimed at perfecting the most basic necessities required in any mouse: tracking, DPI, programmable buttons, and an ergonomic feel. The Naos 5000 does all this and more, while adding worthwhile touches such as customizable LED lights.
