After many years serving in a desktop support role, I observed a few things about people and their computers. One aspect in particular that amuses me is how some users are absolutely fanatical about their input devices. For the majority of them, a mouse is just a mouse. As long as it moves the pointer on the computer screen where they want it to go, it doesn't matter what shape, color or feel it has. Then there are others who patently refuse to use the standard stuff that comes with the computer. A surprising number of people will only use a trackball, enough that we had to keep replacements on hand. And some would even request a particular model, really off-the-wall devices like the 3M Renaissance or Evoluent VerticalMouse. For myself, I'd say I probably fall somewhere in the middle, although I definitely lean more towards the "generic mouse is fine for me" crowd.
For the last 2½ years I've been using the Cyber Snipa Stinger
and have been perfectly satisfied and grown so accustomed to it that anything else hasn't felt quite right. Unfortunately just recently I seem to have worn out the clicker on the left mouse button and have been searching for a replacement. Perfect timing then that the Mionix Naos 3200 should come up for review. Mionix is a company based in Sweden that makes gaming mice, mouse accessories and audio gear that are "light years ahead of the game". The Mionix Naos has an LED optical sensor adjustable up to 3200dpi, programmable buttons, customizable LED lighting and built-in memory for storing your settings.
