Mionix Naos 8200 Mouse
Out of the box, I'm starting with the left side of the Naos 8200. Here you can see that the side is contoured to keep your thumb comfortable right below the two buttons placed here. Just in front of the pair of buttons you will find three plastic bits that will soon be illuminated and show which of the three DPI settings you are using.
The heel of the mouse does go deep into the palm and is contoured to offer a very comfortable feel while not pressing into your hand and causing pain with extended use. For a little added flash while the mouse is sitting on your desk, Mionix added an LED logo that will light up once powered.
On the right hand side of the Naos 8200 you have two sculpted supports to give your ring finger and pinky finger a place to rest and not drag on the surface. While this is comfortable to use, it does make lifting the mouse a bit of a challenge.
The right and left click buttons, as the rest of the mouse is, gets the rubber coating to unify the look of the Naos 8200. There is a bit of an angle to the front of the mouse allowing more room for the longer finger. The buttons are also concave and keeps your fingers where they need to be in the heat of a battle.
Between the two large buttons you will find the much smaller pair of buttons that will allow you to select the DPI on-the-fly, and via the software, these can be customized to your personal liking. The scroll wheel does have a rubber center to ensure you don't slide on it, and the selection is stiff and defined when scrolling the wheel.
Under the Naos 8200 you will find that is supported with four various sized PTFE feet. These do support the mouse well and to offer almost effortless gliding on most surfaces. In the middle there are a couple of stickers. One has the product information and serial number, while the other is the Mionix logo surrounding the laser sensor eye.
To give you plenty of length and making connectivity easier, Mionix sends two meters of cable that has been cloth braided and offers a gold plated USB 2.0 connection and a Ferrite choke to prevent any noise or cross talk.
