Gamers are always looking for an advantage. Optical mice were the first products to give us a leg up over the guys with regular mice. Since then more and more improvements have been made to mice. Ladies and gentleman, I present to you the Mionix Naos 8200!

First Impressions and Game Experience

This mouse came in a couple of weeks ago in a small black box. Didn't think much of it at first until I pulled it out of its packaging and felt that cold steel up against my palm. The design is sleek, with all five fingers fitting perfectly into place like if they had been aching for it. The braided black cable with gold plated USB 2.0 connection caught my attention also. I knew I had to plug this in right away and get my hand going. The instruction manual made me go to a website for customizable vibrations and colors of lighting for the mouse. When plugged in the mouse begins to glow green, and made me feel like I had some type of weapon in my hand. The mouse easily guided across the screen without me having to constantly, drag and pick up and drag and pick up. Once I downloaded the software for the mouse it gave me a number of 4 color options to choose from along with different effects. I of course went with red. I didn't want to mess with anything else and my main priority was to just play something. Next came booting up the Steam engine and launching Battlefield 3. As I played through my first match, what I like to call my "Warm-Up Match" my crosshair was flying across the screen and I was missing shots like crazy! I had to turn down my sensitivity by 5 and then I was back in action. Lets take a detailed look at the Specs of this mouse. (also found on back of the box)

This is the best gaming mouse I have ever used. After the first match I decided to move some controls around. The Naos 8200 offers seven programmable buttons so I moved a lot of hard to reach controls over to the mouse to improve my skills and make life ten times easier. The mouse was a total game changer and I remained on top of the leader boards for ten games straight. Games don't currently take advantage of all the capability of this mouse. It would be great if game publishers would allow us to have vibrations enabled in our games during certain actions - perhaps an opponent has moved within a certain range in your blind spot for instance.
