MIONIX AVIOR 7000 First Impressions/Review - Page 38

Yes that is possible. You can have 3 dpi steps saved into the mouse without software. However I think that macros need the software if you want to use them.

haha, they are a great company. Definitely okay to use the beta firmware. I've been using it for weeks and the mouse hasn't had the slightest issue. I also indicated that in the updated OP.

That's probably the only downfall of the mouse...it is extremely picky about surfaces, even among some cloth pads at times. I would use it with a cloth pad. After all, how else are you going to reach 6 m/s on a smaller hard mat, right? wink.gif

I prefer hard mats. I'm using it on my old vespula right now without any issues. I wanted something a bit bigger though.

I just buy like a new QCK Heavy after like every year.. collecting dust and dirt like a boss.

How do you like your '45?

But tell me Metal571, why is the tracking better on a cloth pad? This hard mat isn't so bad i think and i can vouch for the destructor 2 with the DA 2013...worked pretty well for me. Does a cloth pad works better for optical?
And since the Avior scans the surface for a better tracking how does it affect its performance on a hard mat?

In my experience with the MM400 and the Propus 380, the LOD skyrockets even at the lowest setting on the Avior if you try to use it with those pads. The DA2013 is a completely different animal. The 3310 in particular is more picky than the S3988 but also commonly has lower latency.

Hard mats are generally recommended for laser mice since it ensures that their maximum PCS is met (read: Xai/Sensei) and positive acceleration is minimized compared to cloth. Cloth is usually recommended for optical mice because their ability to track properly on hard mats varies a lot more.

The Avior does not have surface CALIBRATION, only surface ANALYZATION, it is not the same as the DA at all. Analyzing a surface with the Avior does not change the Avior's settings.

When you the LOD skyrockets what does that imply?
I actually bought the Destructor for the Seni, but sseince i had both the Sensei and the DA2013 i used them on both.
What cloth pad do you recommend for the Avior?

That implies that I can't easily lift my mouse off and reposition as quickly. I mean that no matter where I am on one of those hard mats, the LOD is much higher than on cloth for some strange reason. This happened with both the Avior and my previous mouse, the Rival.

I use a Puretrak Talent right now, but a QcK Heavy works really well with it as well. I just have an ass-low sensitivity of 70cm/360 and I need the extra space the Talent gives, and it also has a smoother glide than the QcK that I prefer.

I have returned it. Its shape didn't really work out too well for my loose claw grip (the back of it was to pronounced for my liking). Probably great if you have large hands or use a palm grip though.

Build quality is exceptional, the coating feels extremely comfortable, the mouse buttons are crazy smooth and easy to press but still feel very clear and crisp (had the Roccat Kone Pure Optical before, which had similar light mouse buttons but they felt a bit unnatural, hollow in comparison).

Buy recommendation from my side especially if you are used to Corsair mice shape already.

Yeah, the shape doesn't work for everyone. Here's to hoping the FK gets a 3310, I know a lot of people like that shape, myself included actually since I own an FK now as well. Still need to get around to doing that review...

My post referred to the M45 not the Avior :-). The Mionix works really great for me, I am tempted to say that if you claw grip and prefer medium towards larger sized mice the Avior is your best bet at the moment. If the Sensei works for you size wise go for the Avior! If you prefer something like the Kana or Kinzu the Avior might be too much in terms of dimensions and/or weight.
