MIONIX AVIOR 7000 First Impressions/Review - Page 155

post #1541 of 1929
I got my Avior today and I've already played a couple hours of CSGO/ WoW and the mouse performed outstanding. I was kinda skeptical and worried that the shape won't suit me since its quite flat but when I put my hand over the mouse it felt nice. The build quality of the mouse is outstanding no problems at all, the sensor performance is top notch which is to be expected since its using the 3310 sensor. It looks like I found a clear winner after trying numerous mice and none of them felt good.

That's basically what I found as well. I actually went to the FK1 and found it was so light that it was actually hurting my aim and making it overly twitchy and have since gone back to ol' reliable, the Avior that just never seems to fail

Twitchy with a 70cm sens? biggrin.gif
How's that possible, is your whole forearem unsteadily floating in air? biggrin.gif

My aim sucks naturally at higher sensitivities, you guys know this already. Low sensitivity is a crutch so I can simply outaim other people without having to try too hard, and a light mouse makes it even twitchier and less steady when I'm trying to do fine movements like recoil control

Right tongue.gif I have more or less broken my stats on battlefield 4 as i was playing on <15 cm/360 for so long so now at 30cm/360 i am currently trying to get them up over 20%. Its slow going but at least they are improving.

So basicly i use your stats as the ball park to aim for tongue.gif

Yeah, my stats are pretty up there in terms of accuracy due to my sensitivity and the fact that I went through a locker/metro stage and am now going through a guilin addiction stage, lol

My Avior 7000 just arrived. I just plugged it in and testing it out.

I'm going to install the beta driver shortly as Metal's recommendation.

First impression is the build quality looks to be industry leading. Fit and finish is flawless. Feels sturdy and made of high-quality materials. The lighting is very well executed.
The feet are made of some very slippery stuff. I really like how it glides on my old goliathus.

It is much bigger than I expected. This thing is DeathAdder sized and a little wider.


Gonna spend some time today csgo-ing with it.


EDIT: Holy cow the beta firmware made a difference. Feels like a different mouse. Much more responsive.

Is this beta firmware that reduces the smoothing also available for the Naos 7000?
Also: is the smoothing reduced or completely disabled? Would be nice to have an official answer from Mionix.

I'm searching for a mouse that keeps my palm from touching the mousepad, and obviously a good
palm mouse is the thing to look for to achieve that. Debating between Naos and Rival but would prefer Naos,
if it offers a very good grip where I can still lift off the mouse without much trouble.

That leads me to my third and final question: can I achieve a very low LOD (via driver settings) on the Naos 7000
with the latest beta firmware or does anything not work or does any performance hit takes place when doing so?
I know that the G502 (one of the most advanced sensors today) can have problems with its LOD setting, so that's
why I'm asking about Mionix's 3310 beta firmware implementation.

Yours must have had a much older firmware on it out of the box. I hardly noticed a difference between 3.08 and 3.38. Good to know you like it, mine has been holding up nicely.

I have the NAOS now as well. The beta version for the NAOS is coming but is not posted yet. I can't discuss whether the smoothing can or can't be completely eliminated nor do I 100 percent know either way.

Yes LOD setting is working on the beta. All settings will be working on the official version of 3.38 for both mice. LOD you have to be careful with. Set it too low and the mouse will refuse to track on small spots of the pad leaving you potentially ending up short of your flickshot. I use default and it's plenty low.

Guess I'll delay my purchase of the NAOS then.
No removed smoothing, no buy. rolleyes.gif
I'll keep an eye on this forum though for further news regarding this.
