i know they're different shapes and sensors, but i'm a bit tired of my G400s shape, and really want to try a new mouse..

Shape first, then sensor. Unless you're uber competitive I doubt you can tell the difference between sensors. This is overclock.net and it's an enthusiast crowd but do what suits you.

In case your not familiar with what sensors in which mice.

http://www.overclock.net/t/854100/gaming-mouse-sensor-list

I have a Zowie FK and impulse bought the avior 7000 because it was on sale at fry's and I live near one. I can compare a little more in detail later but I'm really digging the mouse.

************

My first impressions in general of this mouse are that it's great. I prefer the shape of the Zowie FK and a lower mouse but the mouse is clawable enough as is. It's also a littl eheavy for my taste but nothing I can't live wiht. The clicks are divine. I always prefer japanese omrons but the lever mechanism of the shell makes the omrons inside here feel just the same. I can't tell if they are japanese omrons but it doens't matter, clicks feel great. I modded my Zowie FK with Japanese Omrons but they have a "hollow" feeling everytime I click that I just can't get rid of. It's a very tiny issue but it's basically as if the shell and microswitch aren't perfectly locked in together. There is a different tactile feeling depending on where I depress on the shell which is annoying as a user. I don't have this issue so far on the Avior 7000. Tracking seems good too but I can't tell that well until some more in depth testing in SC2.

I'm glad Mionix released this mouse and had it on sale at Fry's. I was very close to ordering a Kana v2 off ebay but given what I hear about quality control issues with steelseries and the lack of a warranty; I'd rather have a one-year warranty in case something goes wrong.

what is the coating like?
because i must say i've had the steelseries sensei for 2 year now, and the side rubber is in perfect shape.

and how thick is the cable compared to the sensei?

thanks biggrin.gif

do you have the zowie 2014? how is the coating like?

ive heard alot of people say it peels off.. would be the perfect shape for me otherwise, but like this im scared to pick it up.

is the avior shape alot bigger from the zowie fk?

The avior is slightly bigger. The Zowie FK is actually a little bit longer at the base but the countours of the Avior angle outward from the base, so the mouse's 3d footprint is bigger than it's actual base footprint. The Avior is also slightly heavier.

The cable is braided. My included picture is fuzzy but it's comparable to the braided cable of a Deathadder.

Pick what fits your hand best. The zowie FK is like the 2nd to smallest mouse out there after the kinzu. It is perfect for my hand but not all people prefer the same ergonomics.

Some pictures comparing the Zowie FK to Mionix Avior:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Cord Size comparison. It's hard to tell but they are both about the same diamter, only the Mionix is braided.

Hot mouse on mouse action: NSFW.



More straightfoward comparisons. Sorry the pictures are a little blurry, hard to take a picture with my note 3 with the case that I have on it.








The Zowie FK is a more concave mouse and the Avior a more convex mouse. That is to say that the avior "bulges" out from the size of it's base and is more suited towards a finger touch grip than a claw grip versus the FK which gets narrower as you move up from the base. The avior is bulkier for this reason. The Avior is a great mouse and it has a great feature set. Being able to calibrate your DPI while still having the 0 acceleration of an optical mouse is great. I hate being stuck on the weird steps of the old avago optical mice. The software is really nice too and you can set the LED to any color you want and have it pulse in cool ways. I have mine on red and pulsing.

The tracking seems fine to me in all games I have played. Suffice it to say I am not a hardcore fps'er and don't game at 400 dpi in CS GO so I cannot rate tracking very well. I only play rts and at a medium sensitivity.

The Avior isn't replacing my FK (the shape is just too perfect for my hand) but it may be a nice supplement. I'm not sure if I need another mouse. For people not so finnicky as me, the Avior belongs up there with the very best gaming mice.

All of them seem equally precise from 50 to 5000. Above that shouldn't be precise...but it is anyway. If you want to be ultra safe, you can use 1600 CPI, since some people say that's the original native CPI of the sensor hardware.

Corsair does have a 3310 mouse but they left theirs at 5000 CPI maximum.

Like I said in my video...nothing short of MAGICAL firmware. I have no clue how they managed to make 7000 CPI feel native, but they did. It is NOT, however, native on the hardware.

I use the standard Korean mouse bungee for my zowie FK which is a rantopad brand. I also used the razer mouse bungie before. Both worked with my FK and both will work with the Avior. The cable is more or less the same as the death adder's.

The gunner sens is WAY too high when switching to that seat on tanks, LAVs, and APCs.

Looks like Diogenes5 covered most of it for me, although I do have in my hands right now an FK.

What else do you guys want covered in FK vs. Avior in my video that Dio hasn't mentioned already? I plan to do a full review of the FK anyway, but the comparison can be a separate video with more specific questions answered.

i love how the back of the mouse fits perfectly into my palm (sorta hybrid claw/fingertip)....i think it's gonna take some getting used to, as kana v2 is a lot less "broad" but i think mionix struck gold here - at least ergonomics wise.


I'm wondering where the g5 fits in terms of size compared to the Avior?
