Mionix Castor Ice Cream Gaming and Artist Mouse Review

Packaging, Accessories, and Documentation




We can only assume that the packaging changes with the flavor of the Castor you have purchased. In this instance, the backdrop for the Castor Ice Cream matches the color of the product. Mionix puts their name right in the center, and at the bottom, we see the Castor name, and that it is intended for gamers and artists.





On the right side of the front panel, we find this panel to be white, with the Mionix name shown again, and the tagline "if you're in, you're in." We can also see a notch on the left edge, which will allow us to slide the inner packaging out a bit later.




The back offers mentions of the DPI rating, amount of memory, the adjustability of the DPI, the programmable buttons, the ergonomic shape, and the soft touch coating, in eighteen languages. Below that, Mionix delivers the package contents, which is the mouse and a guide, product information, and system requirements, but this time only in four languages.




The last exterior panel shows the Castor from a different angle, with much text covering it. The text is where Mionix offers a plea of sorts while explaining all of the reasons why the Castor Ice Cream is the right mouse for you.




The inner packaging takes artistry to a new level, as the Mionix name is front and center of the box. All around it, we see Ice Cream pops, French Fries, Frosting on donuts, a couple of Shark Fins, but nothing pointing towards the traditional black version.




Inside of the box, the Castor Ice Cream is held in place with form-fitting layers of cardboard. The top half and the bottom half align with the use of four pins and ensures the mouse inside is well protected for its long journey to your doorstep. Under the lower section, there is the remainder of the mouse cable, and some literature and stickers.




The quick start guide is multilingual and starts things off with congratulations. Mionix then asks for feedback, if you have time, a review on Amazon, and don't be shy in sending images or comments out on social media. It continues with the installation steps in text form, where to find the Mionix Hub software to customize it, and then jumps into warranty, support, and safety/environmental information. Along with the guide is a set of two Mionix stickers, which can be placed anywhere you see fit to use them.
