Is this mouse actually as good as the reviews say it is?
I have its brother, the Naos 7000. I want to love this mouse, but unless you have short fingers, you won't be able to palm it completely and comfortably, contrary to what reviewers say.
it's really small so if you do not claw grip dont think about it.
using the za12, is ok but not perfect form wise for me.
testing the naos 7k today.
any other recommendations for someone who has been using a mx518 before? g502 looks weird as fuck with all the buttons - g400/500/s are all expensive as fuck because no one has them in stock.
I've had a Logitech MX518, a Razer Deathadder and am now using a Mionix Naos 7000. The Mionix mouse is by far the comfiest of the three mice.
Sadly, none of them reach the comfiness levels of the Mouseman Dual Optical I used before it broke.
i used NAOS 7000 for 3 days
it was excelent build quality and sensor is ranked as perfect as far as I remember
its definitly better than razor or steelseries or coolmaster
zowie is decent and comparable
logitech gone to shit with their latest edgy round of mice
I just ordered it, so I hope it's pretty good. I've been using a Corsair M95 for 2 years, and it's been pretty good, but I don't use the macro buttons, and since I've been playing more FPS titles, I've been noticing mouse acceleration. I don't know why Corsair chooses to put laser sensors in their "high end" mice, it doesn't make any sense.
there is a mouse guide on geekhack last updated Sept 2015. Great for comparing mice as it tells you the sensors used and general features. The Mionix Castor uses the same sensor as the zowie fk1 and EcA1/2. (its a good sensor)
I'm thinking of getting a new Zowie ZA11, but they say they're switching from Huanon switches to Omron, which aren't available yet.
Plus, the newest edition is supposed to have a black scrollwheel.
i have some mice related problem:
on very slow movements with the mouse (like moving from one letter to another of a post here), the mouse isn't going smooth but kind of jumps.
what can cause this?
I've only used mine for about a day now so it might just be that I'm not used yet but something just feels a bit off compared to my MS IE 3.0, though It feels and sits good in my mid-sized hands. I got it at half price and I'd buy it again at that price, but I'd just get another MS IE 3.0 if it was full price.
you can still get MS IE 3.0?
anyway, 2 days ago I was working on a notebook, and needed mouse and lo and behold I found mx518 in my drawer that I used for like 4 years
I grab it and it feels fucking wrong and terrible in all aspects possible
anyway if I could buy a mouse, it would be comfort mouse 6000 from microsoft
but they are not making them anymore :(((
will probably test out rival300
You can in Sweden so I'd bet it's available in the US as well. It's also $20 cheaper than the Castor here in Sweden.
I don't think I've had any problem with phantom scrolling, but both my 3.0 started double clicking on their own after a couple of years use, which is why I had to buy a new mouse this time around.
what mousepad are you using?
zowie P-TF x here. it's amazing.
I used the same Steelpad 4D from 2003 until yesterday. I bought a Steelseries QcK a couple of years ago to bring with me to LAN parties and such for easier packing and I switched to that one yesterday just to try a cloth mousepad.
had some textile pad from "fnatic" from like.. dont even remember. 2005? maybe a bit later. got coffee and shit all over it a couple of times and had to clean it a lot but it still was really fine up until recently where it started to loosen the strings on the edges.
man it really doesn't get better than artisan mousepads. they're fucking godlike. and considering the materials, quality and the fact that you're importing from japan they're pretty cheap.
i paid 5800 yen for mine.
>Buy Razer mouse because Razer "isn't actually that bad."
>Few months later mouse1 spazzes out when held down, registers double clicks when I just wanted a single click.
>Only works properly if I blow in between mouse1 and the body every 20 minutes
Razer is garbage and if anyone tries to tell you otherwise they're wrong.
Hey! I own one of these and honestly they are only comfortable if you have large hands. I've gotten used to it, but there is a huge gap between your middle finger and index finger when you grip the mouse.
I haven't really had much experience with mice though.
It's pretty good, had it for a week or so, though didn't have the chance to use it on my PC or any games, so can't really comment on anything else but the feel in hand
When I changed it to other laptop it seems to save the DPI settings and what LEDs are on/off, not the colour though (defaults to shitseries orange), but I also had only one profile, so don't know if it can remember more than one. I also only minimally changed the DPI so I can't be 100% sure that it did actually save the levels, since iirc it only changes by 100DPI from the default
Wow, from what they write on their product page it seems really impressive, especially the changable switches
Sadly, the cheapest I could get it is 85€, which I find too much for a mouse
Would be interesting to hear more about it
The gap is perfectly fine imo.. midsized hands
Shit, I returned mine because I was iffy, never even used it.
Here's my current mouse I painted. I like it because it is large, but it's a shitty wireless Gateway mouse.
It's not a big mouse but it's really not that small either.
