What’s goin on guys, Jerry here and today I’m gonna show you another mouse that I picked up. This is the Mionix Avior 7000.
And basically this is a 9 button ambidextrous mouse with an ADNS-3310 optical sensor.
So if we take a look at the mouse overall we can that its a pretty simple mouse, nothing really flashy to it.
On each side of the mouse you’ve got your thumb buttons. They’re in the same place on each side which will allow you to use this mouse as either right or left handed.
On the top of the mouse, you’ve got your dpi adjustment buttons and scroll wheel along with your left and right click buttons which have Omron switches underneath.
This mouse does have RGB lighting on the scroll wheel and Mionix logo so matching the lighting to your other peripherals is a non-issue.
And the entire mouse is covered with a non-slip rubber coating to promote maximum grip.
Now if we flip the mouse over we can see some fairly thick rubber feet and the optical sensor which is adjustable up to 7000DPI.
This mouse also has a 32-bit ARM processor and built-in memory for storing up to 5 profiles.
The mouse does not feature any weight system and comes in at 100 grams.
And lastly the mouse comes with a 2m black braided cable.
Mionix also provides software for the mouse which allows you to change things like key bindings, dpi settings, color settings and macros. A big feature of this software is the surface quality analyzer tool which it in conjunction with the lift distance adjustment allows you to get maximum tracking out of your mouse pad.
And that’s pretty much it as far as the mouse as a whole and what you can expect.
Now there are some things I don’t like about this mouse. The first thing being the rubber coating. While it is better feeling than straight plastic, it turns the mouse into a grease and finger print magnet and basically makes it look dirty at all times.
Another thing is there are no dpi adjustment indicators either on the mouse itself or on-screen through the software. That makes it hard to tell what the dpi is currently set to. So to combat this I’ve basically made one dpi setting extremely high like 4000 that way I know I’m on the 3rd setting and from there I can switch down to the two others I like to use.
And 3rd, in regards to the RGB lighting I’ve noticed that the Mionix logo gets quite warm on my palm so I’ve opted to turn the lighting off there. Also like all other RGB products I’ve tried before, the lighting is not very intense.
This may also be a con depending on the user but there isn’t much you can do in terms of tuning the mouse to your preference. There’s no weight system or height adjustments. Pretty much what you see is what you get.
I have no problems with the ergonomics of the mouse as I’ve spent quite a bit of time using the Torq X10 which is also an ambidextrous mouse but some may have trouble inadvertently pressing the thumb buttons on the right side of the mouse.
As for positives. First thing is I like the look. There’s no cheesy gamer aesthetic. It’s all black and simple and to the point. It’s a grown mans mouse.
The RGB lighting also allows you to tie it in nicely to your keyboard or other desktop peripherals.
The overall shape of the mouse is nice and fits good in my hand. It definitely works nicely for claw grip gaming.
The tracking of the sensor also feels slightly smoother than others I’ve tried but I think that’s mostly due to fine-tuning the lift distance.
Overall this mouse does lack some features that other mice have in its price range but if you can get one for a good price, like during a Massdrop group buy then I can definitely suggest you jump on it if for nothing more than the sensor alone.
So that’s about it guys, let me know what you think about the mouse down in the comments below. Don’t forget to like this video if you’ve found it helpful and also subscribe. And until next time…see ya!
