If the Sensei works for you size wise go for the Avior! If you are prefer something like the Kana or Kinzu the Avior might be too much in terms of dimension and/or weight.

Exactly what I'd say.

Sorry, way too many threads and posts floating around that I am trying to respond to.

I got my naos 7000 within two days from mionix. Guess i had luck with that. But the packaging was the same, including a sargas 320.

Anyone noticed a bit sensor malfunction? I have it on my Func 1030^2 L speed side. The sqat tells me that it is a 100% surface. But when i move the mouse slowly horizontally, the cursor stops sometimes for a microsecond. The problem seems to go away, if i turn the 1030 to the control side, wich is rougher (according to sqat also 100% surface)

Overall, the mice seems to be a little lower build quality then my MS-3. In almost every aspect. It isnt bad, but its just ist that good either... Since my MS-3 died now for the second time, i have some weeks to consider, until i get my replacement...

Sounds a bit odd.

I could see if you dislike the size of the Mionix, since bottom line size and shape preferences are purely personal but most users (including myself) praise especially the overall build quality of Mionix mice.

I can't comment on Func mice for comparison purpose since I never owned one though.

When it comes to the sensor performance I would in general recommend you to use a cloth pad in combination with an optical sensor mouse.

Plastic mats - at least for myself - turned out to be the better option for laser mice (like my good old G9), so I could see why you feel that the 3310 sensor and the mat might now work well together.

I am aware that there are exceptions of the optical=cloth, laser=plastic rule but overall it's your best bet to stick to it.

Still happy with my mouse. I'm hesitant to recommend any mouse to someone else because e.g. you never know what's comfortable for someone shape wise, but for me this thing is perfect. I don't have to think about my mouse, don't have any "but"'s, I just play. That's a win.

Here's something odd that happened last night with my Avior:

Cursor movement stopped working. Clicks were fine and everything, but I couldn't aim or move the cursor at all anymore.

I went into the software and upped the LOD, saved it (what is "Save" and "Test" for?) and applied it.
Cursor working again.

Then the same thing happened few minutes later.
No cursor movement possible anymore.

Then I blew a bit into the sensor area on the bottom of the Avior. Tracking then worked again.

This procedure continued for the whole night until I unplugged it and used my WMO.
Don't know what that is but will send it back for that.
I have another one here, so that will need to stand the test.
If it fails too, well then it's going on eBay.





Tested the Corsair M45 too since yesterday.
The sensor feels great and with the weights removed it really feels more agile than the Avior.
Shape is ok. Nothing worse or better than the Avior. Just different.
Where the Avior might be too big for some, the M45's awkward butt might be a turn-off for some.

It basically is a shape preference between the two.
Highly recommend testing the M45.

This sums up pretty much my impressions of the M45 and the Avior!

I also did try the gift sargas 320 today, and i have to say, its a no go for me. The friction of the naos 7000 is HUGE on this... i simply cant adapt to it, after the hard pad.

The Sargas in it's current form (have read somewhere that they work on a new version) isn't a real good pad; I would probably recommend a qck or puretrak pad.
post #389 of 1929
I dont know, i had QCK-s before, but i found the 1030 way better for the MS-3. I am really used to its low friction.
The NAOS 7000 works now well on the control side, so i think i am gonna use this for now. But it is very likely, that i will change back to the MS-3, once it comes back from repair.

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.

LOD's only 1 CD with the lift distance slider at notch 10 with my Vespula. I can't test the MM400 anymore, already returned it.
