The Ninox Venator is an affordable mouse that boasts a PMW 3360 sensor, Omron switches and a lightweight design.
I got on very well with its smaller shape, and it suited my claw grip perfectly. if you’re used to bigger and heavier mice, the Venator probably won’t be for you – at the very least, it will take some adjusting to – but if you like small, fast mice it could be perfect.
The main issue I had with the mouse was to do with build quality – my sample creaked quite a lot when I gripped the sides of the mouse. Ninox told us this issue does affect a small number of samples, but it is covered by the warranty so is nothing to worry about.
The Venator is a top performer, though, with perfect tracking and precision. The buttons have a fast, crisp action as well which is really satisfying.
I did find the side grips to be a little on the slippery side, however, but the main shell feels really good under your palm.
All in all, the Ninox Venator is a solid gaming mouse at a good price. It offers top performance in a small and lightweight body which will appeal to those looking for a competitive edge. It’s not perfect – as demonstrated by the creaking issue and slippery side grips – but for the money, it is well worth buying.
