Mionix Mouse - Castor - Page 77

When using a Logitech mouse I was consistently faster than a Mionix mouse. My reaction times were ~11ms faster with the G303 than the Avior 7000.

With a low click latency mouse I am able to click a few times more within 10 seconds than a high latency mouse.

Logitech vs Mionix (Click to show)

I think Mionix actually has a higher firmware added debounce delay than Zowie does now. Oh how the tables have turned!

Let's see if my complaints have the same affect.

Very comfortable shape, though it's unnecessarily wide/big
Nice LMB/RMB
Side button position could be a bit better (that is, a bit further to the back) but I suppose this depends on the size of your hand and/or hand position
Doesn't glide along my mousepad (DeX) nearly as well as my Roccat KPO Black Edition
Scroll wheel is loud on the down scroll, silent on the up scroll. Not sure if this is a QC issue like Mionix is known to have or normal but it's annoying nonetheless
Very uncomfortably stiff middle click
The braided cable is very soft and bendable at the start but then becomes much stiffer like all the other cables

Do you have baby hands? This mouse is anything but big.

17cm. It isn't uncomfortably large.

Why would any mouse cable get stiffer over time?

I can grip Rival, DA, EC1 and be accurate. Not a fan of Castor shape, I can only grip it without cramps in the way that is no necessary comfortable for me. I was even looking to put Castor PCB into EC2 but shells even with pretty much the same base are completely different assembly-wise, not to mention M1 and M2 implications. Everything else about this mouse is exceptional in my opinion.

Sorry I worded that weirdly. What I meant to say is that the part that's attached to the mouse is very soft for about 20cm or so and then gets as stiff as the braided cables on other mice. So the important part of the cable is soft, which is nice.

Hm, you might be right. That is weird! The difference is pretty small though. I think the Castor has one of the best braided cables around. A bad example: G303 is just horrible. Still, not as good as the non braided Zowie cables.

Looking to move on from my g400 with angle snapping. How does the shape of this compare? I alway have a tough time figuring this out from pics. Anyone use both?
