Configuring the Naos 3200
Hardware Secrets Silver AwardThe mouse doesn't come with a manual or software CD, so the user has to download them from Mionix’s website. It's a plug-and-play device, but it's worthwhile to install the very friendly configuration program. It features a sleek and simple interface. Unfortunately, the software doesn't include the S.Q.A.T. (Surface Quality Analyzer Tool) that comes with the Naos 5000 package.

Reprogramming the Naos 3200 is a breeze. It's possible to assign new functions to six buttons and the scroll wheel, plus create macros. However, it's not possible to create several user profiles like, for instance, a job-related profile and one dedicated to a particular game. The user has to configure a single set of buttons and then stick to it, or change everything all over again to a new purpose. You could create up to five different profiles with the Naos 5000, but that's not the case here.

Since the field test with the Naos 5000 went so exceedingly well while playing Modern Warfare 2, we decided to repeat the same configuration with the Naos 3200. For instance, we made the button near the thumb be the equivalent to the E key, which unleashes the “knife stab” in the game, and let the scroll wheel be used to quickly deploy the special weapons (like the claymore mine). We adjusted the three sensitivity levels to our liking, keeping one of them as high as the 3200 dpi maximum and creating some lower options for a more precise response.
