Well since the Mionix was sold out today on NCIX and no stock on other higher rated mice, I managed to pick up a SteelSeries Sensei Pro locally for $60.

Any opinions on the Mionix? Good choice?

 

I haven't been able to find info on the Naos 7000's sensor performance. The Naos 3200 has prediction, I think. I know the Naos 7000 doesn't, but I can't speak for smoothing, drivers, or high-latency mouse buttons. It's not a bad mouse, but I would approach it with caution. I should note, however, that if you want 7000 CPI, you will be disappointed. It's using a 3310 sensor, so anything above 5000 CPI is interpolated anyway. Some tests I've heard about show that it's not even really faster on 7K.  This in mind, I'll list you some alternatives which get favorable impressions overall: Roccat Kone Pure Military, Corsair Raptor M45, and maybe the Steelseries Rival. I would, of course, avoid Razer like the plague on general principle as their products are almost ALWAYS badly-built and have an unhealthy tendency to break, but if you're okay with that, the Deathadder 2013 and Chroma may be for you. And don't be lured in by the Chroma's "10000 CPI" capability. It is still using a 3310 sensor and just interpolating anything higher. Similarly, mice with more than 5000 CPI using the 3310 are still interpolating above it. If you need higher true CPI than 5000 on an optical sensor, the Logitech G502 is something I would conditionally recommend if you're okay with very slight prediction and a heavy weight. At least it works. On a note somewhat closer to home, if you're okay with an ambidextrous shape, the Mionix Avior 7000 is also a respectable enough mouse.

Thanks for all the great info 343 Grenadier but I picked up a SS Sensei Pro at a much better price as the Naos was sold out.
