Mionix Naos 3200 Gaming Mouse
When we last took a look at a gaming mouse from Swedish company Mionix, their Naos 5000 turned out to be a sublime product that offered gamers a robust mouse in what was the most comfortable ergonomic design I’ve ever laid hands on. Tackling the industry heavyweights is no small task in the peripheral mouse market, especially for a company so new. And yet Mionix appeared to hit a home run winner with the Naos 5000.
The only drawback to that mouse was its price; at $100, it was a tough sell for most consumers. It seems that Mionix has listened to the feedback, went back to the drawing board, and have now released the Naos 3200. Offering the same beautiful design but paring back some of the advanced features found on its bigger sibling, the Naos 3200 looks to hit the retail shelves at launch with a much more affordable and tempting $60 price tag.
This puts the Naos 3200 right in the midst of a highly competitive mouse market dominated by a few very popular products, one of which is the venerable Razer DeathAdder. Sporting a optical sensor just like the DeathAdder rather than a more expensive laser engine, the Naos 3200 looks to battle the rest of the competition with bold claims of better features and advanced ergonomics.
If our experience with Mionix is any indication, we have very high hopes for this new mouse. Can the Naos 3200 take the best of the melt-in-your-hand 5000 and streamline things without compromising too much? Let’s find out.
