The Avior 8200 is contained in a sleek black box that has a large photo of the mouse on the front and general product information and some detailed specifications on the rear of the box. The understated presentation here is appreciated, and Mionix appears to have mastered minimalist design on several fronts.

Once inside the box, there is only the mouse and a paper insert that directs you to the Mionix website for drivers. It’s also worth mentioning the Avior 8200 is entirely plug-and-play; you don’t actually need any drivers, so no worries about a useless mouse without an install disk. However, more customization is available if you download and install the drivers. We’ll look at this more closely in the Software section of this review.

Let’s take a closer look at the Avior 8200 itself.
