Mionix Naos 7000 Optical Gaming Mouse Review 01 | TweakTown.com

A quick glance at the specifications chart shows that Mionix is holding no secrets, and wants to deliver as much information to the customer as possible, so that they may make a very educated purchase with their products. Right out of the gate, there is mention of the 32MHz, 32-bit, ARM processor used inside. It then goes on to say that this is strictly for right handers, has a rubberized coating applied to the top, and offers seven programmable buttons. DPI is selectable in three levels via the software; from 50 to 7000 in 50DPI increments. There are also two LED zones, one on the heel, and one in the scroll wheel, and both can be set to one of 16.8 million choices. Moving on, the chart then covers the 128kb of onboard memory, the 1ms polling rate, the PTFE feet, and the two meter braided cable with a gold plated connection.

The real change in the Naos 7000 is the Avago ADNS3310 IR-LED optical sensor at the heart of the design. Of course, we covered the DPI, and the levels in which it can be adjusted. They also cover the tracking speeds of this sensor, where they say that this mouse is capable of tracking at 5.4 meters per second; for those of us on this side of the pond, that is almost eighteen feet per second. It also says there is no hardware acceleration, and shows that it offers an LOD setting.

There is a lot more information given on their web site. Here they show things like the software features, where they run through a list of the five profiles, X/Y axis controls, adjustable polling rate, macro manager, angle snapping, and angle tuning. They also make mention of the LOD calibration tool, and the SQAT, or Surface Quality Analyzer Tool. They also cover the 103 gram weight of this design, the 130mm of length, the 78mm width, and the 38mm height.

Even though this sample just arrived the other day, we are pleased to see that the Naos 7000 is easily obtainable. If you just shop via Google, you will find some eBay listings at $80, and venturing over to Newegg shows a $79.99 listing price. Considering that the previous design of the Naos was in the $80 price range, I would expect no less with the Naos 7000. At this point, relax, look at some images, and see if the new Naos 7000 is worthy of this price point, and if it is in fact the next mouse for your gaming enjoyment.
