The NAOS 7000 is a truly ergonomic, right-handed gaming mouse. The unique shape is developed for a full palm grip with support for all five fingers. With the new lift off distance (LOD) Calibration feature we have combined the Surface Quality Analyzer Tool (S.Q.A.T ) with adjustment of the lift off height to find the lowest possible LOD with optimized tracking. The lightning fast 32bit ARM processor enables the mouse to have many features without compromising the tracking of the sensor. The downloadable software provides access to fully customize all buttons, sensor settings, LED colors, macros and profiles.

If you're using user ratings to judge which mouse to buy, for god's sake pay attention to which model is actually being rated. I can't fathom why Amazon would combine reviews for the 3200, 8200, and 7000. It simply isn't fair to the product, as there are things wrong with the older products that have been fixed in the 7000. The 7000 is being hurt because the avg review score is being dragged down by the older models' flaws.
Positive points for all three models:
*The (identical) shape of all three models is absolutely amazing/wonderful. It feels molded to my hand.
*Clicking on all three is solid and satisfying, neither too sensitive nor too difficult.
*Excellent quasi-rubberized surface that strikes the perfect balance between grippy-ness and smoothness.
Regarding the sensors in the 3200 & 8200:
*Poor. Prone to random acceleration / pixel-skipping, making for imprecise pointing.
*My 8200 also tended to just wig out and go crazy every once in awhile, with the DPI dipping down to almost nothing for no apparent reason.
Regarding the sensor in the 7000:
*AWESOME. No pixel-skipping EVER (okay, well, maybe if you go up into the REALLY high DPI ranges like 5000, but I know no one who actually uses those settings). You're getting totally raw responsiveness. What your hand does is exactly what the pointer is going to do.
More great stuff about the 7000 specifically:
*Adjustable lift-off distance.
The only negative thing about the 7000 that I can think of:
*They removed the DPI indicator lights they had on the 8200. These are the only lights I used on the 8200, and I miss them a little, but not a big loss at all.
Overall: get the 7000. It's basically the perfect mouse in my book. The sensor is so much better than the 3200/5000/8200, it's just not a contest at all. Stay away from those, get the 7000.
The buttons are perfectly responsive. The left and right mouse buttons click when I want them to: no accidental clicks or presses that were "too soft" to register. The thumb buttons have the same click and response as the main mouse buttons, which was a pleasant surprise -- and they are ideally placed. You don't have to shift your hand in order to use the them.
There are some nuances about the mouse to note, which will be pros or cons depending on your preferences:
- The mouse is unweighted. At first I was taken aback by how light it is. A mouse mat with a bit of friction can offset the lack of weight. I adjusted within about an hour of use.
- You need a good mouse pad. It would barely register on my desk or other surfaces (Wacom tablet, book, etc.). As I mention below, I use one by Corsair that works beautifully.
- The scroll wheel takes slow, deliberate steps. You won't be able to "spin" it, and there is no side scroll. This is great for some games and not optimal for others.
- After a long session of gaming, the oils from your skin will start to show on it. These don't appear to degrade the plastic and disappear after a quick wipe down.
- It's got a cloth cord with a decent amount of length and flexibility. Rooted firmly at both ends.
The software that allows you to adjust the settings of the mouse is a breeze. It spreads out the range of settings into sections that are easy to parse. It has the standard DPI, lift off, tracking, etc., which are easy to tweak and make for some top of the line performance. The feature for adding macros is simple to use: click "start recording," perform your macro, click "stop recording," assign macro to button, done.
I have several computers, Macs and PCs, desktops and laptops. This mouse works with all of them the moment it's plugged in, as the profiles that tell it how to behave are stored on the mouse itself.
Note on the Surface Quality Analysis Technology (S.Q.A.T.): the first mouse pad I tried was a plastic surface one made by Razer, which registered 100 on the test. The second pad I tried was a Corsair that registered a 50. Take these numbers with a grain of salt because while it had a higher number, my mouse skated across the Razer mat like soap on fresh ice (and was about as easy to control). The mouse handling on the cloth Corsair mat was perfect, and I noticed no loss in quality on screen -- the pointer always went smoothly to where I wanted it to go.
I play a wide range of genres, and this mouse is serving me well whether I'm breaking blocks in Minecraft, landing skill shots in League of Legends, or flying frigates in EVE Online. The macro feature helps my performance in all of these games, and I'm damn thankful that those thumb buttons are so easy to use.
Overall, the ergonomics of the mouse and the technologies that power it make the Mionix NAOS 7000 feel like an extension of your mind.
Top international reviews
I think the mouse itself looks really good. It has a smooth, matte black rubber coating all around it and an illuminated logo, as well as LEDs showing the current DPI level and an LED behind the scroll wheel (which unfortunately isn't diffused properly when looking at it from certain angles). All of this makes for a sober look, but not a dull one, courtesy of the multicolour LEDs. It has notches on the right side of the mouse, one for your pinkie and one for your ring finger. It might initially look like quite a big mouse, but it isn't really. It is as long as my old G9, a bit wider (mainly because of the finger rests) and with a lower hump.
It has the new Avago 9800 sensor, which supports DPI settings up to 8200 and Omron switches. It features polling rates up to 1000hz, an adjustable lift distance (the distance between your mouse and the surface at which the sensor stops tracking movements), S.Q.A.T. (Surface Quality Analyser Tool, which is used to calibrate the mouse for use on a specific surface) and multicolour LEDs. It features two thumb buttons and two DPI buttons and that's it as far as extra buttons go. There is no weight-tuning present.
The driver itself is not included in the packaging and you'll have to download it from the Mionix site. It is a small download (12.1MB) and doesn't have any impact on system performance. In the driver you can assign different functions and macros to the buttons. The only function I missed was a sniper button (a button that temporarily lowers the DPI). You can also change the double-click speed, scroll speed, pointer acceleration, polling rate (125/250/500/1000hz), and pointer speed. There is also an option select the lift-off distance and the Surface Quality Analyser Tool, but I personally didn't like the way the mouse behaved with it enabled.
And lastly there are the LED setting, which are quite expansive. Apart from picking the colour and turning them on and off, there are also some other options. You can for example choose different colours for the different LED areas on the mouse, on turn some of them off completely. There are also three different LED effects: blinking, pulsating and breathing, as well as a colour shift mode. All very fancy, but in the end just a fun gimmick.
The software is easy to use and can store up to 5 different profiles.
I really looked forward to having a proper ergonomic mouse. Its ergonomic shape, however, proofed to be its only weakness. I have fairly big hands and this mouse was just too small for me. The curves in the finger rest just weren't in the right place for me, forcing me to stretch my pinkie in a very uncomfortable position, which caused my hand to cramp even after a short while.
During gaming I change from a palmgrip to a clawgrip, but unfortunately thing didn't improve. The place where my pinkie and ring finger rested just didn't feel natural. So I decided to let someone else who has smaller hands try the mouse and she said it was perfect for her. On other problem is that while the coating feels extremely pleasant, it is very smooth and therefore makes it a bit difficult to pick the mouse up. So this mouse might not be the best for low sensitivity gamers, who tend to pick up their mice often.
I decided to try it for a bit longer and found the sensor to be excellent. You can change the DPI settings in 200dpi increments, from a frankly ridiculous 8200 down to a measly 200dpi. I found myself playing at 2600dpi most of the time. I didn't notice any acceleration or delays. I used it on my CM Storm cloth mouse mat and the tracking was flawless. The lift-off distance was excellent as well. I set it at the low setting in the driver and the sensor pretty much stopped tracking to moment I lifted the mouse from the mouse mat.
I was also really pleased with the mouse buttons. The placing of the thumb buttons was good and the click they made very pleasant. Same goes for the two main buttons. They weren't too sensitive nor did they take a lot of force to press and click was very satisfying. Scrolling and clicking with the scroll wheel was just as good, but I did miss a sideways scrolling option.
Unfortunately I just couldn't get used to the shape of this mouse and decided to send it back. Which is unfortunate, since it has a lot going for it. The LED system is nice, if a bit gimmicky. The rubber coating has a very enjoyable texture, but it may be a bit too smooth. The sensor is excellent and the buttons are outstanding. The driver is easy to use and lightweight. It is just such a shame that it has such a specific shape. If you have big hand, you need not apply. If you use anything other than a palmgrip, buy another mouse. But if you have small to medium-sized hands and do use a palmgrip, than this mouse might just be the one for you.
+ High quality feel
+ Looks good
+ Ring and pinky finger rest
+ LEDs not even which give the lighting a nice depth to it
+ healthy mouse wheel
- Lacking grip texture
- Yellow and white LEDs are weak, the green lights lovely ONLY on the default setting, by exploring other colours I could not get it back to the default green no matter what I did
- Despite ergonomics, still flat on the left side. This means the natural elevation of the hand due to the thumb does not rest but hovers.
- Software is poor and did not let me map Function keys on my keyboard, despite recognising the "volume up/down" function.
- Not for gamers due to laser sensor. Laser lets you use it on a wider variety of surfaces however optical sensors are what are more suitable for games as lasers do not work well with mousemat
- Expensive for what it is in my opinion
Despite all the criticisms I opted for this mouse over Logitech's G502 because of the superior comfort as that is what is most important to me
It was/is a great mouse, but my palm is broad so it wouldn't naturally sit straight which made gaming awkward.
My hand is 8" from tip to wrist and a 9.5" hand span. this mouse fits me so much better, although would probably suit people with a slightly longer palm than I have. There are only 4 slight downsides I've encountered that are worth mentioning and drop it 1 star.
1) The thumb buttons are a bit too far forward and could be thicker and rounder for easier operation.
2) The buttons behind the scroll wheel are a bit too far back and are oddly shaped. If you can reach the thumb buttons then you can't get to the wheel buttons. Fine if you hardly use them though.
3) The matte texture is good for grip, but that, plus the flat hand ergonomics, makes for a sweaty mouse in tense games.
4) If you use low sensitivity settings then you may struggle with pick-up and move. You can pick it up, but it tilts to the right as there's less grip there and the edge of the mouse catches the mouse mat. Interestingly, it doesn't catch on the left if you tilt it that way.
I use high sensitivity settings, so it's rare for me to need to lift my mouse, but mousemat swipers will likely get annoyed by it.
On the plus side, the software was a wee bit more tweakable than the Logitech's and it was nice to set it up once and then have the config stored in the mouse so there's one less app running in Windows.
The microswitches are nicely weighted too.
Not quite as premium a feel as the G403, but I only noticed by having them side-by-side.
Overall, I'll take this mouse over the G403 (which is now shelved as a backup) all day every day.
2.Size 4/10. The size of this mouse is L if they could make it between S and M 90% of its current size and reduce the weight with that by as much as possible maybe 10-15 Grams. This mouse will be liquid gold to own.
3.Sensor the sensor seems to work well except that your Logo at the bottom Scratches 3 different mouse pads i own. Its a bulging mionix logo and it scrapes the mouse pad making the mouse unusable.
4.Buttons are so nice and crisp keep them that way but please do try to elevate the index/pointing finger a bit and kepe the right long as it is now. maybe a 10% curve for the left finger to the right.
5. Overall 6/10 amazing mouse if your very large hand is around 20cm to 10cm width.
Hopefully a mouse is made for smaller/mid level hands like 17/8.5. That will be an instant buy for a LOT of people as there is no good fingertip mouse on the market with good sensor and weight. Please do not add things like heartrate measurement that doesnt even work. Keep it simple nice and your next product will be a sales blaster.
After much searching i found this mouse. People praised it for its functionality and its ergonomics and i thought i would give it a go.
After only a few hours after receiving it i was convinced it would take something very special to make me change my mouse again.
The thing is perfect , with not one but two indentations for the two rightmost fingers. It is big enough for my palm to sit comfortably on top and while personally i would not mind it being even a bit bigger, i understand it would be pointless for most people.
The mouse itself is excellent and i have had no problem with it since i bought it. It is very responsive and has a plethora of options to choose from using the mionix software. The leds are rgb and you can customize it however you want to. There are presets for the dps the mouse can use which can be altered by pressing the two buttons in the middle, and there are two additional buttons on the left side, which can be used as macro keys, again customizable by the software.
The build quality is superb, with themouse being plastic but feeling very strong, i have had the misfortune of dropping it a couple of times and still it has no scratches or any issues with it functionality overall. It has some sort of rubber coating which is excellent for prolonged use as it will not slip. The scroll wheel is very sturdy and with just enough force to make it easy to use but hard to misuse and provides good enough feedback to indicate it has turned just by the feel of it.
Lastly the price is just right for a product like this. I have tried products from razer roccat and steel series, and i always had the impression that i was paying a brand premium, which i don't with mionix. Not to say any products of these brands are bad, on the contrary, they are jsut priced above their offerings, something mionix does not do, at least yet.
Overall i have been very impressed and am now a big supporter of mionix, and of the naos mouse in particular. I would definitely recommend this mouse to anyone especially those who find conventional mice uncomfortable and want to ty something different.
Thus I decided to branch out and seek a new mouse as I feel Logitech have lost their way.
I came to Mionix, that I hadn’t heard about before but a quick look on the forums reassured me they were a high end brand of quality products for gamers.
So after a bit of research I settled on the 7000 series as it uses a truly awesome optical sensor, whereas their 8200 series uses a laser sensor.
Being a righty and a bit of a palm gripper I went for the Naos 7000. I’ll say now I’ve been very impressed from the minute I saw the neat package to actually using the mouse.
As mentioned the mouse comes in a neat little box and the software is downloadable on their website.
There’s a 2 metre braided cable and in hand the mouse feels great. It has a soft touch coating that I imagine overtime may wear a bit. The Mionix logo and scroll wheel both light up and their colour can be changed or just turned off in the software.
On the subject of the software, whilst not as polished as maybe Logitech’s or SteelSeries’, it was very easy to use and packs a lot of high end features giving you control over pretty much every aspect of your mouse. One particularly nifty feature is the surface analyser.
DPI can be adjusted on the fly and indeed these can be changed to different values in the software. One thing though is that there is no led indicator for dpi level, unlike their 8200 version which is a bit of a bummer.
In use I liked the weight and found it to be one of the most comfortable and accurate mice I have ever used. I swear my accuracy went up in BF4 simply because of this mouse and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone.
It is quite big and weighty but that helps hold it to the mouse mat. When this mouse dies i would have no second thoughts about replacing it with the same make and model.
I used to use the Naos 5000 but sadly that was discontinued so after advice from Mionix who i contacted they suggested the 3200 and im am so happy with the new model.
The customer support when i contacted them was amazing and prompt too.
The mouse looks the part, not to flashy and quite subtle and professional and the smooth rubber coating is conformable and hard-wearing. it has an LED logo, LEDs showing the DPI level and an LED scroll wheel . The RGB LEDs are a nice feature and the separate LEDs can be programmed different colours.. It has a rest on the right side of the mouse, for your little finger and ring finger. It is a medium sized mouse, smaller than a FUNC-MS3 ( A comparable mouse) but Bigger than my old R.A.T 3, unlike these mouses though it has a 8200 DPI sensor, . and has a polling rate of 1000hz, Unlike the lower end Mionx mice, it does not have adjustable weights and may not suit all, however has a customisable lift of distance for twitch shooters and fast reaction games and a poor surface analyser tool that can auto set some settings that are rarely correct, the software (Off Mionx's website) is very customisable and works with all their products.
Edit: 4 Years on and this mouse is still going strong, the rubber coating is still in place and all the drivers are still working 100%!
Edit 2: So at the end of the 4 years it's finally died, about what I expected really with heavy usage so I'd still recommend the product!
The middle mouse button no longer responds to my presses unless I apply a lot of strength. This button probably has a lower lifetime than the primary mouse buttons but it's still disappointing (and annoying).
The company didn't provide me with a replacement when I requested one because I was out of the 2-year warranty period. They suggested that I buy a new mouse instead.
I would recommend alternative products from Corsair or SteelSeries because it seems the Mionix is now end of life.
+ Has a 4 layer coat of some really nice rubber which is smooth to the touch and very grippy.
+ The mouse will probably fit all hands (I'm a teenager with medium sized hands and works with it like a charm, I'd go as far to say it's a perfect fit).
+ Has a groove on the right side of the mouse for the ring finger to rest and for the little finger to lean against.
+ The lights are very nice, the defualt light (green) is extremely high quality looking, it has no visible area where you can see the inside of the mouse leaking through the little parts for the lights and there are lots of other programmable lights where you can change to 'pulsating', 'breathing' or 'solid'. I currently have it to 'colour-shift' where it goes through all the different colours throughout the scheme.
+ It has 3 levels for DPI change where you can set it from 200 dots-per-inch to a big and VERY sensitive 8200 dots-per-inch with it's top-range AVAGO sensor! Also the DPI level indicator on the right side of the mouse follows your chosen colour.
+ The right and left click feel are a tad, bit sensitive which aren't a bad thing since you'll most likely get used to it as I am.
+ Nice tefflon feet for effortless glide.
+ Programmable side, 'forward and back' click buttons aswell as the basic 'left, right' buttons and 'mouse wheel' click with scroll.
+Long braided cable with gold-plated usb hook-up.
+ 128kb of on-the-go memory so you can keep your profiles wherever you take your mouse.
+ Precise scroll wheel at high enough point for reach.
+ Nice simple packaging (should've noted that in the start) with all the information about the mouse and
- Requires software from the site when you receive the mouse. They could have included an installation disk for the software or put it in the mouse installation itself. but not a problem :)
So far there are no majour issues with this mouse, it's pretty much near perfect for me :) I'd say it gets my Badass Seal of Approval! I highly reccommend it!
Have you looked at these other ergonomic mice but realised they wouldn't be suitable due to speed and control?

Logitech G502 Proteus Core Tunable Gaming Mouse
I suffer from RSI in my right index finger on the third knuckle.
I purchased this mouse Mionix Naos 7000 and the Logitech G502 Proteus Core at the same time.
Liked them both but the Logitech was too small for my hand.
The Naos 7000 fits the hand like a glove, and the soft touch click helps a lot with my claw mouse holding approach.
I use it for both graphic design and gaming. Excels at both on the Razer Goliathus Speed mouse mat.
Mionix is a bit of an underdog it would seem. But although quiet, I have to say that the Naos 7000 is perfect for those looking for a perfect fit for their hand combined with easy soft clickiness.
Ergonomics are good for me and the tracking is precise and accurate. DPI can be set to 3 values.
Buttons are programmable and stay with the mouse.
The (downloadable) software allows setting dpi and macros on the buttons. Interestingly, the mouse settings are stored in the mouse and should therefore suit users who swap the mouse between multiple PCs.
Annoyingly, after a couple of months the mouse wheel started to squeak. To fix this I had to disassemble and lubricate the mouse and this meant removing the PTFE 'feet' glides, which basically destroys them. Luckily these are available as a replacement part.
Problems like this should not happen with a 'quality' product.
I've knocked a star off the rating because of this.
The only negative thing I can say is that compared to the Xornet, the resolution switcher (i.e. 'sniper' button) is a bit awkward to reach. I've gotten used to it, but it definitely isn't as easy to use as the Xornet's.
The scroll wheel had a bad spot, so maybe 1/10th of it was MUCH harder to turn than the rest. The left/right clicks were completely different which is a known error with these mice; the right click was perfect however the left click sounded ''hollow'' and stuck at the bottom of it's travel making it impossible to click quickly.
I still gave it two stars since if it were not for these issues, it's an excellent mouse. Feels as accurate as any other 3310 mouse and the shape is very comfortable to palm and even claw. The coating on the mouse in particular was excellent, it has this soft-touch plastic feeling which had a slight grain or something to it, made it the only mouse I've ever used to not cause my hand to sweat. If you can get one without any defects and like the shape, it's an awesome mouse.
