The Mionix Naos 3200 is kind of a "lite" version of the Naos 5000. While it has the same size and shape, and offers some of the same features, it gives up the 5000's adjustable weight system, multiple user profiles and 5040dpi laser sensor. What it does retain is the built-in memory storage, 3-way customizable dpi, adjustable polling rate up to 1000MHz, heavy duty braided cord and gold-plated USB connector. The Naos 3200 comes only with the mouse itself and a small user reference card. The software to customize your Naos must be downloaded from the Mionix website.
The Naos is shaped differently then most mice, even other gaming mice, with its wide sculpted body. Rather than traditional hourglass-shaped sides that can be used ambidextrously, the Naos is definitely made to be used right-handed. Although the thumb and first two fingers are positioned normally, the last two fingers lay more flat on top of the curved surface instead of curled around the side. This does have a more natural feel and undoubtedly helps to prevent fingers dragging on the mouse surface or the dreaded "gamer's claw" from too many hours spent playing. But it also makes the mouse more difficult to pick up and move.
Let's see how this affects performance next as we install the Naos and test it out.
