Posted 18th December 2018 By: Derpina    243 Views
Tech Review – Gaming can get uncomfortable over time, especially if you spend hours in front of your monitors. This can get worse if you’re not comfortable with your equipment. Gamers with relatively large hands, for instance, find it hard to look for gaming mice that can fit their claw and palm grips as most gaming mice’s weight and shape cater to average-size hands.
Addressing this issue, this week’s episode of Tipify Gaming Equipment series features the best gaming mice for gamers with hands bigger than the average: Mionix Naos 7000 Multi-Ergonomic Mouse and ROCCAT ROC-11-900-AM Nyth. Don’t settle for short-sized gaming equipment again, and see what these little than average mice can offer.
Mionix Naos 7000 Multi-Ergonomic Mouse
The Mionix Naos 7000 is advertised by the brand as “The Most Comfortable Ergonomic Mouse”. It’s a bold claim, but all the differences in a gamer’s palm shapes, sizes, and grips can be accommodated by this one-size-fits-all gaming solution. The mouse’s size, 131 x 85 x 39mm, has one of the biggest dimensions in the market. It’s suitable for palm gripping and hybrid-claw grips, and goes the extra mile to include a support swelling for the pinky finger. The body is made of high-end plastic and covered with soft rubber velvet.
Going over the performance and software, the Mionix Naos 7000 boasts a 7000 DPI optical sensor (PMW-3310), 128kB built-in memory, adjustable DPI settings in 50 steps, 7 programmable buttons, and customizable LEDs. It’s important to know that the mouse is a twin product of the NAOS 8200 model, but it has a much better laser sensor: the famous Avago ADNS-3310. If you’re not familiar with this new technology, it’s a gaming-grade and ultra-accurate sensor that can be used effectively in any type of gaming genre.
ROCCAT ROC-11-900-AM Nyth
The Roccat Nyth breaks all gaming barriers as it’s designed to cater to all demographics. The body of the mouse is also covered with a smooth, matte plastic, like the Mionix Naos. Its curvature surrounds its body and suitable for all types of gaming hands. On the left grip, there are 12 buttons that can be used as a shortcut for MMO games. It works well with games that are demanding with skills and character variations. The rear end, meanwhile, has a well-rounded body. Lastly, we have the mouse’s bottom area with four PTFE pads that give it a smooth glide on the mouse pad and desk.
When it comes to performance and features, the Nyth carries the following specs: 12000 DPI, Twin-Tech Laser Sensor R1, 576 kb onboard memory, 1000 Hz polling rate, 1ms response time, 3D printing support, 18 Buttons and 39 Functions, and 50g acceleration. According to most of its first-hand reviews, the Roccat Nyth’s sensor is completely accurate when used in Overwatch and CS:GO, two types of games that require tracking sensitivity. With this, it’s safe to say that it clearly works well with MMOs and FPS.
