Mionix Naos 5000 Gaming Mouse Review


PC Gaming has come a long way in the last decade or so and aside from the games themselves, the hardware has contributed the most to this evolving landscape. You will find industry enthusiasts and developers in every corner of the world but today's...

Very comfortable ergonomic design ; Up to 5040 Dots Per Inch (DPI) ; Very accurate ; 7 programmable buttons ; Up to 5 separate profiles ; User-friendly control software ; 128kb of onboard memory ; Customizable LEDs (24 colours and off)

No horizontal scroll ; A bit on the expensive side

The Naos 5000 is a superior gaming mouse and is really a cut above the rest in so many ways. Mionix, through this mouse, has definitely made its mark on PC gaming. Being very easy to set up and get going, the Naos 5000 will show off its gaming prowess...

Mionix Naos 5000 Gaming mouse -


Though most people believe that any generic power supply will do for their computer, this is not generally true. Strong systems require a lot of power, and this is where the InWin Commander comes into play. It is a well designed power supply, and its...

The Mionix Naos 5000 is one of the best gaming mice we have tested so far. It is very confortable and works well on all sorts of surfaces. We are proud to award it the Bjorn3D Golden Bear Award.

Mionix Naos 5000 USB Gaming Laser Mouse


Gamers want the best system they can get their hands on. This means a blazing fast CPU, dual video cards, and good ram. However, all this is potentially useless if you pair this system with an unreliable mouse. Mionix aims to prevent this problem by...

Solid construction ; Ergonomic design ; Powerful software backend ; Sleek and stylish


The DPI on this mouse is able to be changed, with a DPI ranging from 90 to 5040. On-the-fly DPI switching is also included, with two buttons placed on the mouse to accomplish this. The polling rates are also able to be changed. The Naos 5000 contains...

Mionix Naos 5000 Gaming Mouse


Mionix is a relatively new company in the gaming peripherals market, at least compared to other more established companies like Razer, Steelseries and the like. Nonetheless, Mionix has turned quite a few heads with their initial product releases such...

Outstanding tracking performance, customization to your hearts desire, ergonomic design, most features can be used without software

High price, right-hand only design

So with all of the features, performance and customization you could ever ask for – why does it not get the highest rating and an Editors Choice award? Due to the one and only one drawback (and it’s a big one) – price. The Naos goes for about $95 USD...

Mionix Naos 5000


Mionix is another fine company that shows its face here at Overclockers Online. Sporting their latest gaming mouse, the Naos 5000 is engineered with superior ergonomics, adjustable weights, numerous programming buttons, and sharp laser precision.

Fully programmable ; Top-notch tracking capabilities ; Comfortable design

Not left-hand-friendly ; Expensive ; Software not included

I plugged in the Naos 5000, loaded up the software, and fired up a few games. I played through all of Assassin’s Creed 2 and Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Advanced War Fighter with it, and I have to say, it never let me down once. The mouse was accurate...

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...

Mionix NAOS 5000 Laser Gaming Mouse Review


Gaming mice have been a growing industry as the demands of gamers have been on the rise. Gamers need more DPI, faster polling rates and the likes, in order to keep up with the fast pace of the new and upcoming generation of games. I myself, having...

Mionix NAO 5000 Gaming Mouse


If you remember, we recently played with the Mionix Keid 20 Gaming Headset from that new European gaming gear company known as Mionix. But that's only one of the things ...

Slightly troublesome weight chamber doors ; Price tag is higher than other competitors ; Not meant for really small hands

Mionix opted to use a braided USB cable instead of the commonly found smooth cable which tends to get kinked, snagged, or cut up. This is similar to what company's like RAZER have long been doing. The cord can take a beating for much longer and not...

Features Not very long ago we looked at a gamer mouse from Mionix named 3200 which ended up being a very nice mouse that we awarded for a well balanced gamer mouse. Today we are taking a look at the Naos 5000 which is the next “high end” mouse that...

Comfortable ; Customizable ; Sleeved cable ; Fast ; Good software

Right button is loose

This mouse is excellent, it is very comfortable and it is one of the faster mice response wise that I have tested so far. Design wise it's made to fit both big and small hands. After using it for a week I can for sure say it works both for normal daily...
