Mionix Naos 7000 Optical Gaming Mouse Review

After downloading and installing the software, this is what we get. Under the mouse settings tab, the first things to notice are the five profiles across the top. Under this tab you can select the function of the seven buttons. The left side of this tab finishes with the polling rate. The right side offers double click speed, scroll speed, and pointer acceleration adjustment sliders.

Clicking on sensor performance, we see that there are X/Y axis controls, three steps to set the DPI for the buttons, and at the right there are angle snapping and angle tuning settings. At the bottom there is the Surface Quality analyzer Tool, and to the right there are sliders for pointer speed, and LOD that offers a test button, so as not to disable the mouse when set too low.

The color settings offer users the chance to pick whether the LEDs are on, off, or selective, which allows both lights to be independently color set. Below that, you can also pick a mode for the LEDs where they are illuminated in a solid fashion, blinking, pulsating, or in a breathing mode. At the right, you can select color shift, or a solid color. There are twenty preset colors, but you also have the RGB scale to input colors as well.

The Macro tab is pretty straight forward; this is where you program them. The left box is where you name Macros, and build a list. The middle window shows the actual commands set for that macro, and to the right, you have the option for a time delay. There are no advanced settings, but keeping this simple makes it accessible to more users.

The support tab offers boxes to check, which are broken up into four sections. If you have a question, and want to see if it is already addressed, hit the FAQ section. If it isn't in there, and you still need help, visit the support section. This is also where you can register the new mouse, and at the bottom, there is a spot to click to see if there are firmware or software updates.
