MIONIX AVIOR 7000 First Impressions/Review - Page 58

post #571 of 1929
Right hand buttons do not seem to get in the way at all for me the way I hold my mouse. I'm just a straight up palm gripper, no fancy stuff. This mouse is MADE for palm gripping I mean it's dreadfully obvious by its design. I guess you could claw or fingertip it but really I don't think if you are a claw or fingertip gripper that the mouses shape is going to suit you as well as other mice on the market. The thing is LIGHT, does anyone know exactly what the weight of the mouse is? It is pretty balanced as well in terms of the distribution of weight, maybe a slight bias to the back end but not obnoxiously so like the recon was.

The mouse is pinpoint accurate, no floaty feeling or other oddities that I have noticed with some other mice. Definitely a new favorite for me, the shape kind of reminds me of something like the xai but lower form factor and wider and just a different feel to it. I will say for me and the way I hold my mouse which is just a normal palm grip the mouse is extremely comfortable and well designed, great omron switches and all that goodness. At stock settings it tracks superbly on my talent MP as well as my CM Power pad and my QCK heavy(tested on all) been using my talent though.

It's a great, functional, ergonomic, ambidextrous mouse. Nothing really to say negatively about it. I am extremely happy that manufacturers have finally been 'getting it' lately in what consumers need and want in their gaming equipment. With the advent of low latency, high hrtz monitors, mechanicals KB's with backlight, and now mice coming out with no crippling features and near flawless 'gaming' grade sensors the future of gaming is looking bright for PC gamers. Feels almost like a new renaissance period of PC gaming, the enlightenment is hear brothers and sisters!

I mean to summarize, I am extremely satisfied and happy I purchased this mouse. It is definitely going to replace my recon as my new go to mouse for gaming. Mionix got it right with this thing, it has everything a gamer needs, without any crippling features to hold back the rawest and truest potential one can possibly attain as far as their aim is concerned. This mouse will take you as far as you can possibly go in terms of accuracy in your own aim, the only limiting factor is now the user of the mouse again, and not gross hardware level accel, or other tracking issues like angle snapping, over smoothing, 'floaty' feeling mice, and other oddities I have experienced in supposed 'gaming mice. Great mouse, it's grossly expensive for a mouse but as long as it lasts me I am going to say it was a worthy investment given the specs.

I would say this mouse is the most versatile in grip handling. I believe the shape was really designed for fingertip and claw gamers, that is why it is a lower mouse than many. It actually isn't that light for a gaming mouse, it's probably around 110 grams just judging by hand feel and memory right now. The shape rocks for my fingertip grip, I never touch the side buttons and they never bother me. I really am starting to think this forum is chock full of people with relatively strange grips. I can't see how any fingertip grip in particular would ever touch the side buttons, but for a palmer it might, yet you didn't have an issue with it. I recommend this mouse to everyone because it seems to support a very wide variety of grips from what I can tell, but it looks like that isn't necessarily the case at all times.

Think I'm going to buy the Naos 7000. If I don't like it, I'll use it for a few months, sell it and buy the Logitech G502 when it comes to the UK. If I don't like that I'll wait for the Roccat Kone XTD Optical. After that we have the Corsair M45. And after that... we'll see.

I would only get that if you don't lift often just keep that in mind

After some more testing I would have to say the shape is not quite as 'good' as a xai but they do share very similar feels. The weight might actually be more or less around the same as most other mice of this style. It feels a lot like a xai but I think the xai's overall shape and design lends itself to being much more 'universal' in terms of grip and what not. If I claw or fingertip tip grip the mionix I can't help but feel the opposite side thumb buttons would definitely get in the way.

Maybe that's just me, honestly I don't think I'm a good reviewer of mice for the most part. Most mice people have said are terrible I can play around with it and find a lot less horrible stuff to say about the mouse than they would lol. As long as the mouses sensor is good and the shape is comfortable for me which most mice are seeing as I just 'palm grip' my mouse with no alterations or weird stuff going on most mice fit my needs.

I am loving this mionix mouse though, great feel, good design, great mouse overall can't say too many negative things about it at the moment, not really much negative to say. I'll let you know my overall impressions after I game with it for a few days and report back. I do think it's going to be my new mouse of choice at the moment until I we see releases of future mice with similar sensor quality in the future.

Its interesting that u mention "floating", cause I had problems with placing the crosshair, cause it felt so smooth like it floated around.
I turned off the Mionix software, and now the mice feels more raw, not as floaty, which helped alot!

Never use the mice software actively while playing EVER with any mice software. Just make changes, save it onto the mouses onboard memory and close the software. I have always had issues with mice when software is left openly running for whatever reason.

Yeah!
With the DA2013 I have to use the software, else I cant change Dpi from desktop - game. So I ran mionix software too when playing.
But it works great now that I disabled the software!

I don't understand how an ergonomic 100g mouse with a matt texture finish can be that hard to lift. I'm used to lifting a less form-fitting slippery Logitech mouse that was worn down to a smooth finish and weighed 145 grams. I can't imagine the Naos is going to that much worse. I didn't have much of a choice, anyway. There had to be something to sacrifice and concede on. Based on my brief time here, someone ALWAYS has something to complain about, and usually it's something insignificant to others, like slight acceleration or a scratchy mouse wheel. It's a matter of finding a drawback or a set of drawbacks that you can live. Some don't like the additional side buttons and the Avior, and I thought I would be one of them, but you seem perfectly fine with it. It was a drawback that you could live with. Others couldn't. I've bought the Naos.

It's just that the right side gives you little to 0 leverage for lifting.
