Introduction

We’ve seen several mice from Swedish company Mionix, and we’ve been impressed. The Naos remains one of the most comfortable mice I’ve ever grasped (admittedly, it’s my go-to daily mouse of choice), and we’ve seen models from Mionix that sport minor differences and improvements along the way. Why mess with a winning formula, it seems.

One of the differences is certainly in terms of cost. It should come as no surprise that everyone doesn’t necessarily want to splurge for the flagship Naos, and for those who want the quality and features but a more affordable price tag, the Mionix Castor is what we’re looking at today.

The Castor is a right-handed mouse, and while it captures the shapely essence of the vaunted Naos, it also seems to share some lineage from the impressive Avior, creating a subtle new shape that’s suitable for palm, claw, and fingertip-grip preferences.

There are a couple other differences, such as a 10,000 DPI optical engine rather than laser, a simplified lighting and feature set, and a lower price tag than the premium Naos or Avior. Sounds good so far. Let’s take a closer look at the Mionix Castor and find out if it’s worthy your consideration.
