Mionix Castor Gaming Mouse

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.

Mionix Naos 7000 and Avior 7000

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.

MIONIX LAUNCHES TWO NEW MOUSEPAD RANGES BUILT WITH THE S.Q.A.T. TECHNOLOGY

Vaxjo, Sweden – September 13th, 2012 – Mionix , the Swedish manufacturer of professional high-end gaming accessories today unveiled the new SARGAS and ENSIS range of high performance gaming mousepads developed with their own Surface Quality Analyser Tool (S.Q.A.T). S.Q.A.T explained The Surface Quality Analyser Tool is built into the Mionix NAOS 5000 gaming mouse and measures the data loss between images of the surface taken by the mouse sensor. This information is translated in to a rating between 1 and 10, where a low number represents a higher data loss and a higher number represents a lower data loss between the surface and the mouse sensor. Mousepads rated 8/10 or above will provide no loss of tracking* and improved accuracy. “We saw tracking issues that many professional gamers experienced, which lead to bad accuracy when moving the mouse very quickly in games.
