Mionix Avior 7000 Optical Gaming Mouse Review

Inside the Avior 7000




The majority of the components are slightly out of focus, but that is done on purpose. If you do plan to tear apart the Avior, be very careful of the short ribbon cable connecting the top and bottom PCBs together for communication purposes.




Removing the PCB from the top half of the mouse, we find four TTC red switches for the side buttons. They require a bit of pressure to use, and are audible when clicked. In the center is a pair of Pi switches, which are softer, but still audible, and are used for the DPI selection.




Back to the lower section of the mouse, we see that under the left click button there is an Omron D2FC-F-7N, followed by the (20M) that denotes the twenty million click lifespan that this switch offers.




The 32-bit ARM STM32F103 MCU that we see here takes care of the USB 2.0 communications, offers the 128kb of onboard memory, and operates at 32MHz.




Flipping the mouse one hundred and eighty degrees, we can now see the Avago ADNS3310 optical sensor used in the Avior 7000. This sensor has the model number of PMW3310DH-AW0T, for those who want to look for the white papers.




That leaves us with the second twenty million click lifespan Omron switch, used under the right click button.




After reassembling the Avior 7000, we went ahead and connected it to a PC. When the mouse first powers on, you are greeted with this light blue color. As with all the other Mionix mice, you do still have plenty of options for colors, with the ability to use the RGB scale for a total of 16.8 million choices.
