Mionix made a name for itself with the NAOS design which was first launched in 2010. A couple weeks ago, we had the pleasure of reviewing the revamped NAOS featuring Avago's latest and greatest sensor technology and will now take a good and hard look at Mionix's first ambidextrous high-end gaming mouse. It is dubbed the AVIOR and features the same Avago ADNS-9800 laser sensor as the NAOS 8200.
The similarities under the hood are many, but grip and ergonomics have been altered a lot. The AVIOR works for both right- and left-handed people and is meant to be used with a palm-type grip.
The newest Mionix mouse costs $89, which is as much as the NAOS.

Mionix is sticking to their new minimalistic box, which a lot of companies should adopt. It is a simple box that protects the mouse and gives you the opportunity to look at its shape.
The bundle consists of a short guide and sticker. You have to go online to get the mouse driver, which also ensures you get its latest version.
Mionix's new cable solution looks quite sleek and performs alright for a sleeved cable.
