Thread: New mouse

    New mouse

    So as the title says I'm on the look out for a new mouse. My current mouse, the razer deathadder, is slowly starting to give up after about 4 years. I've been looking at either the sensei or the corsair m90 but I was wondering what other mice are out there for around the same price range of £40-70 ish?

    Had a look at the mionix but I couldn't find anywhere that I'd trust to buy it from in the UK, also never been a fan of Logitech mice for some reason. Fancy a change from the Deathadder too

    Don't know how I missed them, cheers for the links. Do you have any personal experience with the mouse? Never really heard of them until the other day but it looks good.

    I actually bought one just before Christmas but had to return it due to not reaching the front thumb button properly, that made me really sad because except for that it is the most comfortable mouse I've used.
    Was looking around to see if anyone else experienced the same but could only find one other person, everyone else seem to love it.

    Fair enough. Only problem is the laser version is green! Would be nice if it was red as the rest of my setup is red but yeah, a minor point I suppose. Still very tempted by the m90, the sensei looks nice but the shiny coating seems like a bit of a fingerprint magnet.

    I have owned the Mionix Naos 3200 and it was quite comfortable. The bad thing was that the left mouse button started to double click after about 6 months and the rubber around the thumb buttons started to fade away a bit.

    You can change the color on the Naos, Sensei has several versions, the Raw version is rubberized.

    Even on the naos 5000? I read that you could change it on the 8200 but didn't notice the 5000 having the same feature.

    Yes, you can pick any color you want in the software.

    naos 5200 is a good quality/price at the moment, the naos 8200 replaced it as top mouse of Mionix and the priced dropped

    i should get mine within a coupe of days from UK (yet no shop/site in Italy), can't wait to try the ring/pinkie rest from this mouse compared to my Razer Lachesis (which is good, but after a few years is slowly dying)

    A mouse that sells itself by the number of colours you can get to light up on it is just sad. My Steelseries mouse can do a whopping 16 million colours according to the advertising jargon which is a lie in the first place because the software only allows you to pick colours in a 128x128 grid which is 16384.

    Anyway the colour feature something you might play with for about 5 minutes then turn off and never use again.

    I'm not basing my purchase off the colour of the mouse it would just be an added bonus. It is definitely not a requirement.

    on the NAOS 8200 you can enter directly the RGB therefore it's 16M colors, but i dubt someone will buy a mouse for the color change feature


    anyway i'm currently trying the NAOS 8200, still have to get used but it's definitely a good product (with much, much, much better software compared to Razer where most of features works only on the paper)
