An award winning professional gaming mouse – Mionix Avior 7000
In the world of gaming mice, there are a lot of choices out there. Since I’m not a gamer, I am going to leave the “gaming” type reviews to the pros out there. I’m simply taking a look at the basics of the mouse (feel, design, etc.).

Let’s discuss a few basic things:
- Feel: The overall feel of this mouse is good. I like the minimal rubberized texture.
- Size: I have big hands (long fingers). Small mice do not work for me. This mouse feels great in my hand.
- Usability: It might be my setup here with OS X, but the tracking seems a little too slow. Even after I max out the tracking speed, it’s still on the slow-end. This might not be an actual issue, it might just be because I also have a Magic Mouse connected (but I turned it off). I’m sure on Windows, you will have more tracking speed control.
- Surface: So this is the big downfall for me. I use an Ergotron Sit-stand desk with a smooth white surface. It doesn’t work on this particular surface. Mouse pad works great.
- Accessibility: This mouse was designed to work for both right and left-handed people.
