Ninox Venator Mouse Review

Rating: 8.0.

Unless you are a very keen mouse enthusiast, it is unlikely you would have heard of Ninox. The British-based manufacturer has built a strong reputation within enthusiast circles, though, with its Aurora and Venator models. It is the latter mouse we are looking at today, which includes a PMW 3360 sensor for just £39.99. Could it be the best mouse you’ve never heard of?

Other than the PMW 3360, the Ninox Venator is quite light in terms of features. It deliberately does not come with any software, weighs a mere 78g and has 6 buttons. Clearly, it is designed to be a no-frills mouse which offers top performance, so let’s put it through its paces and see how the mouse fares.
