Mionix Naos 5000 Review

It is quite hard to believe that it has been over two years since we last took a look at any mice that are on the market! The most recent one is the Logitech G9 review, which our Editor-in-Chief Jonathan Kwan had written about way back in November of 2007. After two long years, we are back with a brand new computer mouse review, presented by yours truly. "A star has been born" is a prominently advertised slogan on Mionix's product page -- and that 'star', unsurprisingly, happens to be the Mionix Naos, as this product is named after a star of the same name. The star Naos is said to spin a hundred times faster than the Sun, alluding to the speed factor of this mouse under the same name. The numeric '5000' designation at the end of the product's name represents the 5040 dpi sensor, and like all marketing tactics, they took the round number in order to make it easier to remember as well as sounding better at the same time. With all the large scale references to planets, Mionix even goes deep into looking for perfection with this mouse. Many companies advertise excellence, but as experienced users would know, perfection is quite hard to come by these days. Our Arctic Cooling Arctic Sound E352 review written last week is a good example (Actually, it is quite the opposite of perfection, haha). To be honest, I had not heard of Mionix before this review, but word on the street is that they are an excellent gaming peripherals manufacturer. Their marketing direction is also very similar to established, well known gaming companies, and this bodes well for Mionix as well. So, without further delay, let's get straight into today's review and see how close to 'perfection' the Mionix Naos 5000 reaches.
