Mionix Castor Optical Gaming Mouse Review

Packaging, Accessories, and Documentation




The packaging has a high-end feel to it with a very solid box offered with a rope carry handle at the top. The front of the packaging is all black, just slightly offers a look at the top of the Castor, and offers the company and product names at the top in white text.





From the sides, you can see how the front and back of the box are slightly bigger, and the side splits the black top section from the white section below. There is a seal between where it says "it's all about the craftsmanship" and the Mionix name to allow the box to be opened.




Most of the back panel offers lists of ten specifications and features of the Castor in eighteen different languages. Then at the bottom, in only four languages this time, we are given the package contents list.




This side of the packaging offers a side view of the Castor, and like the image on the front, they are nearly life-sized images. At the bottom, we find the naming again, but to the right of that we also see this is an ergonomic right-hand design, it has zero acceleration and calls the LEDs the Aurora Multi-Color-Lighting system.




Since we will see the Castor up close in many images, we left it out of focus to show the packaging and the note left inside. This tells us that we have purchased a fine piece of craftsmanship and has the CEO's signature at the bottom.




Also inside of the box, under the removable panel that holds the Castor mouse, we find a quick start guide to show us how to install this mouse and where to go for the software and firmware. They also include a pretty serious set of stickers. Both black and white versions, the company name and logo, just the name, and our favorite Eat Sleep Game Repeat.
