Read about our in-depth review on the Mionix Avior 7000 Gaming Mouse
Ever wondered if there are any decent high end gaming mice aside from the known brands like Razer, Logitech, SteelSeries & Co. ? In today’s review we will take a closer look at the Avior 7000 from swedish gaming-company Mionix.
With the Avior 7000, Mionix shows us once again why their name is associated with quality . We were stunned after unboxing, as this ambidextrous mouse is a rock-solid piece of hardware and easily beats many of its competitors in terms of build-quality.
On the technical site, a flawless implementation of the PMW3310DH sensor ensures a responsive 1:1 tracking in CS:GO and other games. We didn’t notice any smoothing, prediction or other issues. An amazing Max-Speed of 4,90m/s fits low-sensitivity players.
The PMW3310 is generally considered as the best sensor on the current market. One of the reasons for this is the advanced technology it uses, which allows a highly customizable software. Mionix took advantage of that and provides a very decent software for the Avior. It features nearly everything a gamer would need.
Wanna change the Lift-Off-Distance to your preferences or even activate prediction? The software runs smoothly without any problems and allows you to customize a good bunch of things. Another feature the 3310 sensor is known for are native DPI steps from 50 to 7000 DPI. Worked flawlessly for us and it didn’t lead to DPI consistency issues as it was the case on some other 3310-mice. Mionix did a clean job here.
Weight & Size
With a weight of 100g the Avior is not the lightest gaming-mouse, as the trend goes towards 80-90g mice. However, we didn’t experience any issues from the weight, even after long gaming-sessions our hands didn’t cramp. 100g is still lighter than a Razer DeathAdder and we found it to provide the perfect mix of precision and easy mouse-lifting.
- Length: 125mm
- Heigth: 34mm
- Width: 65mm
Grip & Surface
As many modern mice, the Avior comes with a soft-rubber coating. While gamers with sweaty hands love it, this kind of surface is rather unadvantageous for dry hands until it gets worn a little bit. Mionix designed a clever grip on the Avior. It simulates an ergonomical feeling similar to a DeathAdder, while the mouse is ambidextrous. It has 2 side-buttons on both sides. Despite the buttons are not sticking out crazily like on some other ambi-mice, they can still be an issue for some gamers. We strongly recommend to get a hands-on test before buying, as the extra 2 side-buttons can be a no-go for some people.
Buttons And Wheel
Equipped with Omron-switches, the clicks on the Avior are very light but still give a tactile feedback. We experienced the clicks as very satisfying. The mousewheel is also of high quality. During our testing time, it didn’t squeak or skip once while scrolling. The Clicks and mousewheel are some of the best we’ve ever seen.
The Mionix Avior 7000 is a true gem on todays gamers’ market. It is a beast in terms of build-quality and comes with a flawless sensor-implementation. We are truly impressed by the work of Mionix here. If you get along with the semi-conservative design and grip, this could be your perfect mouse for CS:GO and all other games.
