Mionix Naos 5000

Mionix Naos 5000


With Mionix’s previous headline mouse, the Mionix Saiph 3200, dropping in price to a much more attractive level around the £35 mark, the way has been paved for a new entry to the high end of Mionix’s gaming peripheral range.

In keeping with Mionix’s cosmology theme, the Naos 5000 takes its named from a blue super giant star with the 5000 referring to the maximum dpi – 5040. Essentially, the Naos is a step up from the Saiph keeping the majority of the latter’s features whilst adding and improving a few extra: 128kB in-built memory and an adjustable polling rate to name but a couple.

Aimed at the high end gaming market, the Naos clocks in at a hefty £70. It’s got all the gizmos expected of a gaming mouse but at double the cost of its predecessor and many other mice, can the price tag be justified?
