The shape looks a lot like the OCZ Behemoth.

Funny it reminded me of my CM Sentential but shorter and without the onboard memory, profile switch or lcd/led. Hell even the software is reminiscent of CM's.
IMO for $60 there is a hella better offerings out on the market.

How come you guys didn't review the Naos 5000 instead? It has built in memory, almost stepless DPI setting (between 90-5040 i think, same sensor as the qPad 5K) for Y and X axles, adjustable weight, better software, better support for macros, surface quality analyzer etc.. And it still has the exact same nice shape of the 3200. In fact, the 3200 was created as a budget alternative for those who aren't willing to pay for the features of the Naos 5000, so why test the low budget version and then complain about the lack of features that are in the premium version?

They sent us the 3200. IF they had sent the 5000 we would gladly have reviewed it. Sadly, they did not. We can only compare what we are sent to review.

We "complained" as you put it about the lack of these features because A) they brand it as a "high performance" gaming mouse that B) costs the same if not more as the competition's gaming mice. If they had sent the 5000 it certainly would have alleviated (possibly) the first issue, but it would have exacerbated the second as the 5000 is more expensive than the 3200.
