I purchased the Mionix Avior 7000 two yearsago, and used it as my main mouse for about 15 months, before switching to the Razer DeathAdderChroma.
This in-depth review will cover what I like,and what I dislike about the mouse.
Stay tuned to find out.
The Mionix Avior 7000 is an ambidextrous mouse,which means it is designed for both left and right handed users.
While I can use the Avior comfortably, I dofind myself readjusting my hand when holding the mouse – due to my big hands, and the factthat the height of the Avior is pretty low, and isn’t very wide.
Here it is next to the death adder Chromafor comparison.
As you can see, the DeathAdder is much taller,and also a little wider.
As a result, if you have large hands, youwill probably be limited to claw and fingertip grip.
Palm grip may be possible if you have smallerhands, but might not be as comfortable as with larger mice.
The mouse is relatively light, weighing just105 grams without the cable.
The light weight, combined with the groovesat the side of the mouse, make lifting this mouse relatively risk free.
Though I would have preferred rubber gripsat the side to make the grip a little more secure.
The Mionix Castor features this, but thatis right handed only.
On the base, the Avior features two largemouse feet.
It doesn’t slide as easily as other mice,but you do have more control.
The Avior’s sensor is secured in place tightly,eliminating the risk of sensor rattle, and the performance issues that come with it.
This mouse feels like a premium product, feelingvery compact and robust.
The rubber textured coating feels awesome,and better than the matte texture on the DeathAdder Chroma.
During the 15 months that I used the Avior,I did encounter a double click issue with the left mouse button.
The Avior features Omron switches, which areusually highly regarded for their quality.
But mine started to register single clicksas double clicks.
I did manage to open the mouse to fix this,but this does void your warranty, and you must remove the mouse feet in order to doso.
The Avior features a 2-metre braided cable,which is very durable, although a little stiff.
But this won’t be an issue if you use amouse bungie.
The cable also has a gold-plated USB connector.
The Avior features 9 buttons, including thescroll wheel, left and right click, 2 DPI buttons, and 4 side buttons – 2 on eitherside of the mouse.
Being right handed, I only use the side buttonson the left-hand side of the mouse, so this is essentially a 7-button mouse for me, andis likely to be for anyone else who uses it too.
Depending on how you hold the mouse, you mayaccidentally press the side buttons on the side that you don’t use, but you can programthem to have no function when pressed.
Personally, I never accidentally press thebuttons that I don’t use.
Here is a sound test of the buttons, and thescroll wheel.
The side buttons are a little small, but havesolid feedback, and little actuation distance.
The left and right mouse buttons are lightto press, and have soft feedback.
Even after repairing my left click, it stillfeels just like the right click, and functions just as well.
Like most mice, the scroll wheel requiresthe most force to click.
This scroll wheel provides solid feedback,and rotation is smooth but with distinctive steps.
The DPI buttons are the smallest buttons onthe mouse, and feel similar to the left and right click – feeling light to the touch,and with soft feedback.
The Avior 7000 has dedicated software, whichcan be downloaded from the Mionix website.
The software doesn’t require signup, soyou can simply install and start using it immediately.
The software allows you to create profilesfor your mouse, and program the buttons with a command of your choice, as well as adjustthe polling rate.
You can have up to three different DPI settingsstored to your mouse, which can then be accessed via the DPI buttons.
You can also run the surface quality analysertool, which scans the surface of your mousepad to better understand its material.
This can help improve sensor tracking accuracy,and so I would recommend using this.
You can also adjust the lift off distance.
In the colour settings tab, you can adjustthe RGB lighting on the mouse.
Here is a preview of some of the differentoptions: The software will also allow you to recordmacros, and access help and support material.
Overall, the software works well, and I haven’texperienced any problems.
The Mionix Avior 7000 uses the ADNS 3310 OpticalSensor.
It has a DPI range of 50 to 7,000 in incrementsof 50.
The sensor is responsive, but feels as thoughit has just slightly more latency than what I’m used to on the DeathAdder Chroma, butthe difference is miniscule.
The specs claim a max tracking speed of 5.
45metres per second, or 215 inches.
It holds up in acceleration tests wheneverI carry them out, and the mouse has never spun out on me.
The Avior has polling rate options of 125to 1,000hz, and the option to adjust your lift-off distance.
All in all, a great performing sensor, andgood for any use-case scenario.
However, I have read reports that the Aviordoesn’t track too well on white surfaces, so be sure to have a dark coloured surface.
To conclude this review, the Mionix Avior7000 has great performance and you can customize how it functions, as well as how it looks.
Being an ambidextrous mouse, it is suitablefor both right or left handed users, though it is possible you may only be comfortablewith claw or fingertip grip.
This mouse is suitable for FPS, and potentiallyMMOs or MOBAS due to it having 9 programmable buttons.
Though you may only have easy access to 7of them.
It’s a shame that I experienced an issuewith the left mouse click.
Though I did manage to fix it, it was at thecost of my warranty.
While I’m sure I could have sent it backfor repair, I didn’t want to wait or go through the hassle.
Omron switches usually receive high praise,so my model was probably an exception.
I know of two other people with this mouse,and they haven’t had any issues.
As with any product, your mileage may vary.
