As I sit here and think back to all the mice we have seen over the years, the really astounding fact is that I am pretty sure I have still not run out of fingers when counting all of them that would allow left handed users a fair shake at gaming. I know that playing the averages, there are way more right handed users on the planet. However, it seems to be a real shame that those that were born better with their left hand, either have to learn to game right handed, or they can stick it out as a lefty, but with a very limited selection of products to choose from.

 

With that in mind, and the fact that we just looked at the new Naos 7000 from Mionix, it is pretty easy to put together why we are here today. That would be to look at the ambidextrous design that we have seen in only one form previous to this. As it worked out with the new Naos mouse, Mionix is now also offering a companion to the Avior name, and as you may have guessed, this new mouse flaunts an optical sensor, rather than the Avago ADNS9800 sensors we saw in the first releases of the Naos and Avior.

 

So, as we continue here today, we will be taking you through the latest mouse to hit the shelves from Mionix: the Avior 7000. Unlike the Naos we just looked at, where the design externally had been slightly adjusted to allow a noticeable difference between the laser sensor based and optical sensor based models, the Avior is identical in every way to the original.

 

Only now, the new Avior is sporting the Avago ADNS3310 for all the optical sensor fans to take advantage of, and they won't have to settle for the laser based version if that just isn't their cup of tea.
