Version 1.00 of the software is what we are looking at. In the software you can see that there are five tabs across the top to break up the controls into more manageable sections. Here under the Mouse Settings tab you are given control of the functions of all seven buttons over the five profiles just under the tabs. You can also adjust the double click rate, scroll speed, and acceleration on the right.




Sensor Performance offers you the ability to set the three DPI selection speeds for the buttons on the top of the Naos 8200. These are the plug-and-play settings, but you can set the DPI for both the X and Y axis, as well as enabling a refined mode, which seemed to make little difference in the big scheme of things. At the bottom is the S.Q.A.T. tool to analyze the gaming surface, and on the right you can adjust pointer speed and the LOD or lift distance.




Color settings are pretty obvious, and this is where you can pick from one of the 20 predefined colors, or set it with the RGB boxes to have 16.8 million options. On the left there are sections to not only turn the LED's on and off, but if you chose selective, you can assign which of the four sections is on as well. At the bottom are selections for the LED effect like being on all the time with the solid checked, or you can make it blink, pulse, or breathe.




The Macro Settings tab is exactly what it sounds like. Under the left window you see boxes for a new Macro or to delete them. Pressing New Macro will allow you to add a name to it in the window above. On the right is the record button to begin programming and your actions will show up in the right window. There aren't specific timing controls in this software, but there is a box to check to make the software record the timed delay to open an application.




Under the Support tab you are given four options to choose from, you can click on the links for either the F.A.Q. section of Mionix, product registration, support, or even the downloads section to check for new software or firmware.
