Mionix is well known for their gaming gear, and today, we take a good and hard look at their newest right-handed gaming mouse called the Castor. Size-wise, this mouse slots in under the Mionix Naos design, but is still a right-handed model only. It is slightly shorter and somewhat fatter than its main rival in the Mionix lineup—namely, the Avior which has been a reference mouse for a long time.
Mionix claims the new design to be good for all types of grip, right from from a claw- and on to a palm-type grip. We take it for a spin to find out whether the design is a true do-it-all in terms of ergonomics and whether the new 10000 DPI sensor without angle snapping is as good as claims make it out to be.
- 10000 DPI IR LED sensor
- 5 programmable buttons plus scroll wheel
- Rubberized surface
- Rubber thumb patch
- Comprehensive driver suite
Mionix ships the Castor in a nicely folded box.
The bundle is pretty small. You only get the mouse, a set of stickers, and a quick start guide for those who don't know how mice work.
Mionix is sticking with their braid-sleeved cable, which is admittedly one of the best of its sort on the market, but still worse than an all-plastic one in terms of friction on soft mats.
