Good morning from germany smile.gif

I opened FB today and saw something interesting, the Ninox Astrum:

From Ninox:
"Heres a little preview of the Ninox Astrum, showing how it can be configured. There are three main shapes: Alpha (aka Aurora), Beta, and Gamma. They each have optional side parts for no side buttons. The Astrum includes all of the shapes in the box. Let me know what you think! "



The beta shell catched my eye because it looks like a WMO with side-buttons <3 But let's see, the aurora was a little dissapointment, although I like the efforts from Ninox for a community driven mouse.

Update:

Here some more infos I got:

"Thanks smile.gif Sensor is 3360, I don't know the click latency yet, it'll either use the Venator PCB which has 4.5ms click latency, or a modified (more features) version of qsxcv's 3360 firmware, which may have lower latency (not fully tested yet)."


Mice:
Logitech G903 (current daily driver), Rival 310, Logitech G403, Logitech G Pro, Logitech G303 , WMO-Adder (3.5G), Custom WMO 1.1a (/w Omrons), WMO, IE 3.0, Deathadder 2013, Roccat Savu, Roccat KPM, Steelseries Rival 700, Gigabyte Torq x5, Zowie EC2-A, Ducky Secret
Trackballs:
Logitech Trackman Wheel, Logitech M570, Kensington Slimblade
Mouspads:
Logitech Powerplay (/w softpad), Razer Goliathus Control (L) + Sphex, Roccat Sense, Steelseries QcK Heavy, Sharkoon 1337 XXL
Keyboards:
Ducky Shine 3 TKL MX-Black (main), Cherry G84-4100, Roccat Arvo, Logitech G13

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that the comfort of a Logitech shape, is inversely proportional to the R&D put into its making.

Beta:gamma ix and gamma xx are looking good. There is no side buttons for gamma xx frown.gif . I hope that side buttons aren't too far to reach them.

I hope there will be an improvement on the QC, because the Venator left much to be desired in that area.

That's an ODM product. The new design, if done correctly, will have less issues.

It's true that QC has to be monitored for every batch because Chinese factories will skip on the effort to save money.

I only imagine the amount of work to deliver proper quality with this one. There's cases when a company couldn't fix one shell or design (Razer's new Deathadders shells built worse than 3-3.5G era ones, Roccat's KPOE turned to be a bit worse than KPM while having the same shape, Zowie couln't fix their scroll wheels). Think what it'll take for a small company to prouce 3 proper shells plus attachments.
