Feenix Nascita 2014 Review

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Not many reviews on this mouse, and the small amount of info on it seems to be a lot of assumptions and not from actual owners so I thought Id do a nice detailed unbias review of it.



Ok so just received the mouse last week, so I have a good understanding of what the gist of it is.

1: Design: the looks are obviously beautiful. Feenix has their designers on their site so you can take a look at that. I thought this was an OEM mouse at first but after receiving one its clear that any designs that look similar are simply imitations. So I do give props to a small company for doing an original design. Seems like all the products are that way, the keyboard and mousepad as well...

2. Sensor: Its using the avago 9800 with the updated firmware. So at the end of the day this is still an avago 9800 no getting around it. It provides good tracking and is an all around great LASER sensor. Keyword being laser. So I dont want to get into a debate about the merits of this sensor but from personal experience I didnt notice any native accel with the sensor, and the lift off distance seems great. If I were a robot maybe I might notice differences while i play an FPS with it and my Zowie but to be honest I didnt. So yea.... sensor is good, but if you dont like the avago 9800, then dont get the mouse.

3. Ergonomics/shape/feel: I have to say the Nascita is better than any mouse ive used when it comes to shape and overall comfort for me. This is once again personal preference however. If you have tiny hands then I would stay away. But I think almost everyone minus maybe some select asian people with smaller features will find this to fit really comfortably. If you are a PURE fingertip claw gamer, then I also might say stay away. And maybe if you are a super slow sensitivity FPS user. Apart from that I think the majority of users will find this mouse to be amazing in terms of the shape and ergonomic comfort. The coating is a very nice material, and overall Im having the most pleasant experience simply just having my hand on the mouse.

According to Feenix Site WEIGHT IS: 114G

4: Switches/components/mousewheel: Switches are good. Not too many of them. But they are all good. They all use the same switches as the main right and left click so you get that same high end omron in all the switches. even the mousewheel. The materials are all high end with the dpi buttons being matte aluminum and the side being a matte rubbery material.

For more detail on how the switches are there is on youtube video out there that does a pretty good job of showing it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YMgu9OLrUf0

5: Glide: Uses the good teflon not the bad kind you see on some mice so the glide is good. Nothing else to say there.

6: MISC Features: Switching dpi on a visual panel from 800 all the way to 8200 dpi is quite convenient. Apart from the the mouse is very simple, is completely driverless, and meant to basically be picked up by your gamer at a tourney and be used. Bottom of the mouse doesnt have any labels, its just etching.. which is kinda neat.

7: Feenix customer support/packaging/brand: To me this has been one of the best experiences of the whole mouse. I expected a lot of BS marketing gimmicks but honestly Feenix backs up everything they say. Got the mouse 5 weeks after being waitlisted, got a customer support manager personally introduced to me from the company, got fast shipping. And probably having the best consumer experience that ive had in a while. You do have to buy directly from their website, but honestly I kind of like the exclusivity this offers.

8. Price: a bit high, but after using the mouse for a week Id say its worth it. Like i said hard to get the mouse since you can only buy it from the feenix store.

Overall I think it will probably replace my Zowie in almost every situation. Id have to see for sure when I play an FPS more competitively but I think the shape will grow on me even in that aspect. Great mouse.

THE CONS: Price, shipping, size and weight for some, and harder to pick up for some. Would have liked a little more grip on the sides for this. Also ive heard the older year models for the nascita (2012) are MUCH worse. So stay away from the older models.

More details Section. Ill update this section of the review over time with pictures and tests I do in the next coming weeks.

LINE/JITTER TEST: Heres a quick and dirty line test. Straight line and circle line test. I couldnt really get a good 8200 dpi cuz honestly my hand is way too retarded at that level.

I didnt see any jitter in any of these. Perfectly smooth minus the human error. Ill keep updating this thread with more detailed stuff and pictures.

nice. I just got the Nascita after a recommendation from a friend and I think you are spot on with all your points. Its an excellent mouse, I see it in the God Tier with every other high end mouse.

C'mon OP, where is the jitter/angle-snapping paint test? Where's the in-game acceleration/malfunction speed test? Why don't you list the weight? Obvious Feenix shill/10 review.

ahh god damn you hardcore techies. Alright, Touche salesman. Ill ramp it up for next time. I did forget to mention the weight. Its 115 grams? You can doublecheck me on that. But it feels slightly heavy so once again like I said if your a slow sens fps user whos picking up a lot. Might want to stay away. But to me the weight feels fine.

Runix did they change the right side of the mouse at all with their ergonomic revisions?

On the original Nascita the right side of the mouse, where the seam falls between the upper dark portion of the mouse and the lighter side portion, there was a rather steep drop off along the side of the mouse. What happened for me, when using the mouse over a longer period of time, was the my ring finger on my right hand could not lay against the mouse and instead had to be held up between the first knuckle and the tip of the finger.

This became really uncomfortable after about 2-3 hours of use and unfortunately became the reason I had to retire the mouse, despite loving the feel of rest of the mouse and the materials.

I will seriously go home and order a 2014 revision tonight if I knew that problem was addressed as I loved everything else about the original mouse. smile.gif
