MIONIX AVIOR 7000 First Impressions/Review - Page 9

post #81 of 1929
I'm convinced; gonna buy the Avior.
Wish Zowie would redo the FK with the 3310 sensor or SS would do a 3310 Sensei / xai, but the Avior should do for now.

Yeah, its unfortunate that there is only a few choices if you're interested in this sensor. Unless I'm missing others, these seem to be the only choices atm.

Steelseries Rival
Mionix avior/naos 7000
Corsair M45 (Actually left the CPI at the default 5000 instead of greedily tweaking for MOAR)

Hopefully others will come out soon.

+1 to metal571

Most people didn't even use mice like the Rival or the Mionix, yet are complaining about anything without having some kind of experiance, which i find highly rediculous.

My Deathadder 2013 has some strange issues now.. not sure whats up with it. But it doesn't track on my table.. only on my QCK Heavy. Than after lifting it and putting it on my mousepad there are situations where it lags and doesn't respond for quite. At high DPIs the cursor spins abit during those lag periods. Dunno why the sensor is behaving that way.. i've updated drivers and tried default surface calibration, pre strange. Died on me after like 1 year..

So i've ordered a Mionix Avior aswell. Thanks to the two reviews here, pre nice work, really.
The Sensor seems great and the shape looks outstanding. I am super excited how it is going to perform.

I am for sure going to pay those extra 20 bucks vs the Steelseries Rival if it has the good build quality & shape mentioned in the reviews.
Plus i am getting a free mousepad.. i prolly won't need it anyways. QCK Heavy for life.

CM Storm Alcor v2, Spawn v2, plus Roccat Pure Military in development with 3310s so that should help open up some options. It would be cool if Zowie would update their line with standard lens 3310s, Omrons, and fix the scroll wheel and coating issues. They have some shapes I'd like to try out but won't with their current tech.

Well.. all in all it's completely dead. I hope Mionix is going to save my gaming life with the Avior.
post #87 of 1929
Hi Metal, appreciate the review. I've been thinking of getting the Avior, I'm just wondering do you find the right side buttons are practical to use or just too clumsy? I think I could put them to use in Arma for example, I currently use my g5's mousewheel tilt for zooming but it's starting to fail.

The side buttons are easy to reach - one issue I had with most mice I used before was reaching the front side button was hardly possible at all (I tend to use a looser claw grip).
Overall great mouse, a couple of remarks though:

- The mouse is quiet flat, which I didn't expect. Initially it didn't feel as natural as the FK shape did (for me) and my hand cramped a bit during the transition phase.

- The side buttons - despite being easily reachable - are quiet soft and have a relatively long travel distance. Personally I prefer the crisper ones of the FK.

- The coating starts wearing off rather fast especially on the spots my fingertips are usually located (also the low back position where the mouse has contact to my palm). Hopefully it's just the initial wear that comes with using a device and doesn't proceed at that speed (if so the mouse might be off-coated on these spots in a couple of weeks. This is rather odd since I tend not to sweat a lot, always clean my hands before gaming and in general don't eat while doing so.

That's weird. I used my Avior for a couple months and the coating never showed signs of wear. It did pick up fingerprints and skin oils very easily but was washable. You might have gotten one from a bad batch or something.

Do you use water only to get rid of the fingerprints? Due to the coating I didn't wanna touch alcohol as I used from time to time cleaning my good old g400.
