Computer mice are such odd peripherals. So many variations to suit different personal preferences, resulting in such a difficult time trying to guess which one is best for you. Having seen a great many mice in my day, suffice it to say I’ve seen both good and bad, and plenty in between. Particular models become popular amongst users, making a name for themselves, and often taking on the established industry heavyweights in the fight to impress consumers. One of those companies which seems to have a good understanding of what makes a good mouse, and is becoming increasingly popular as a result, is Mionix.
We’ve seen several mice from the Swedish company Mionix, with the Naos 8200 and Avior 8200 being standouts in a crowded marketplace. The Naos is a right-handed mouse, while the Avior is ambidextrous, though each share the same design essentials of comfort, elegance, and simplicity. Can’t really argue with that.
Today we’re looking at the latest iterations of these Mionix flagship mice, the Naos 7000 and Avior 7000. Despite the difference in DPI, the other major difference is these two new products utilize optical sensors rather than laser internals. This has several pros and cons, which we’ll discuss in more detail, but the overarching point to realize here is you get nearly the same mice for less money.
We’re certainly fans of getting good value, so let’s take a closer look at the Mionix Naos 7000 and Avior 7000 and find out if they’re worth your money.
