Word of warning: Bst, the owner of nionix has a pretty poor reputation on esrealit, I think a lot of people ordered his first mouse, the aurora, that didn't get it. Others who needed support didn't get it etc. However this one is being sold on amazon and a lot of people seem happy with the aurora so I figure it's worth posting, but you have been warned.

I'd write a review of this if I had a copy the shape and small size look really good.

kind of wish it was wider at grip width... but it looks like it slopes quite a lot to the sides, which I like. I can't do flat mice.

I own the same shell from motospeed mouse that has a 3050 sensor in it. I find the shape quite comfortable, and the pointed edge at the palm of the mouse doesn't present and issue. The scroll wheel on my copy of the motospeed mouse is by far the best part of the mouse. I hope this mouse coming to market has the same scroll feel.

Thanks for posting it smile.gif

It is true some people didn't receive their Aurora pre-orders, it was about 5 people, who I have worked out solutions with. Its also true my support wasn't as good as it should have been.

Anyway... I could go on and on about the Aurora, but I don't think a forum post is going to convince people, I have tried my best to improve every single area of the company that I can, all I can do is keep it up and hope people notice.

I hope people like the mouse, not just so it sells, but because it'll just feel good to know people are enjoying it. Also, because it would mean I could make more products wink.gif

If this mouse fails, Ninox is dead, I don't think it will come back. I think that would be a shame, because if it grows, then it'll be a niche company that will make shapes that a lot of gamers want, with the sensors they want. I don't have huge aspirations to make a multi million $ company, I'm quite happy to keep it small and funded well enough to make decent products. At the moment though its still at the sapling stage, it needs a way to feed itself, and grow to a point where its strong enough, so it can do what it was meant to do. The Aurora was the first attempt, it failed, this is the second attempt, hopefully this time it'll gain enough traction.

Companies trying to make "niche" products is nice, but I, personally, wouldn't consider a product labeled as "niche" if it jumps to the DPI race just like the others.. wait, now that I think of this.. is Finalmouse the only company with enough balls to limit the 3360 dpi range? eh-smiley.gif It's good to see more mice options around tho, maybe if your business is successful there could be room in the future for a more "specialized" mouse using the same sensor with DPI capped to 6k (or even less cus most of the gamers I know only use 2 DPI settings.. cycling-through to 8 steps seems ******** anyways) a more classic/safer shape, rubber cable and all the other interesting specs you claim this mouse has like being lightweight, good firmware, custom mechanical scrollwheel, driverless, etc.

The photos in the site gives me the impression this is a bigger and taller G pro lol. Looks interesting and I hope the main buttons don't disappoint. Good luck with this project

I don't think the DPI race is relevant really, probably not a downside of just simply having it available, might simply be more work to limit it to a lower number.
but in principle I agree that DPI race needs to die out soon tongue.gif

So you just want a mouse that locks the DPI at a certain ceiling - idea of niche? I mean, I would say the whole combination of small, lightweight, rubber cable, good sensor, good switches, thought-out scroll wheel pretty niche.. I can count on one hand the number of mice that have all the above.

Well I guess there's never gonna be a perfect mouse in the eyes of everyone but I said that thing about DPI from a point of brand positioning. If u wanna be considered "niche" u make some important/relevant decisions towards ur target audience. Leaving all those DPI steps like that sounds like "hey I wanna please everyone" and that's not the case for a niche product. And yea, as u have pointed out, the rest of the specs are promising, let's just see how it turns out to be.

So ya, don't get me wrong, I welcome these kind of attemps from companies to try to do something different, everyone deserves a chance so I'll support this by buying an unit if the build quality has not been overlooked like it happened in the past with some other interesting projects *Cough finalmouse cough*
