Minor Cons: If you're a palm gripper, this mouse might not be for you. It caters to my hybrid clawgrip style quite well. But if you have huge hands, this probably isn't for you. Also, a light mouse might not be to your liking. I'm not a fan of heavy mice and this mouse has no weight management options. You either get used to the weight or you don't with this mouse. The thumb padding is great, BUT, it's a lint magnet. It's no different than the lint magnet grips of the DeathAdder, but it's a minor chore. The slope of the thumb grip might take a little getting used to, but after a while, this mouse does start to cater to your hand like a comfortable glove.
UPDATE - 02/09/2016: So, I did notice the left mouse button was a lot stiffer than the right mouse button. At first, I thought that was by design. Then, the tactile 'bump' became less and less apparent to the point where the left mouse button was not working anymore. I can't believe I've owned this mouse for less than 2 months and I'm already using the insurance that I paid for this thing to send me a replacement.
UPDATE - 2/17/2016: Mionix returned my messages regarding the defective Castor I had. They said that they'd be more than happy to replace my mouse. But the RMA process was horrible! They wanted the following: a) Provide a VIDEO regarding the issue b) Ship the defective product to SWEDEN. You know how much it costs to send a 1lb box to Sweden? Approx. $115+ USD! I was not happy with this proposition as a customer at all, especially when I was trying to see if they honored their warranty policy.
UPDATE - 5/05/2016: So why did I change my rating back from 1 star to 5 stars? The mouse is fantastic. It just so happened that mine was defective. I respect companies like this that reach out to you to try to make things right. This is rare. A gentleman from Mionix reached out to me to (goes by the name of Christoffer) to see what they can do to make the RMA process for U.S. customers easier. Initially, I was told that I had to ship the defective product to Sweden. Shipping a 1lb box to Sweden isn't exactly cheap. So my initial experience involved Amazon refunding me my money while I ended up with defective Castor (the LMB is now completely unresponsive). Thanks to Mionix and Christoffer, amends were made and the option for U.S. customers to exercise the warranty, return or RMA process has improved drastically (you can now ship the product to a U.S. location!). The final resolution involved fantastic customer service (after my initial experience of course), a change in the return process for all U.S. customers who buy Mionix product and most importantly, they replaced my defective Castor with a fully functional and brand spanking new Castor. This company rocks and I hope computer accessory companies like Mionix keep up the great work. Thanks Amazon and thanks Mionix!
To end, this mouse would work great for Palm, or claw grip. Unless you are a titan, don't purchase this for your fingertip grip.
I hope I was able to help other tip grippers in their purchase decision.
I'm a little mouse addicted, I currently have (on my mouse pad) a Razer Basilisk, Logitech g502, Corsair m65, SteelSeries Rival 700, Mionix Naos 7000 and Mionix Castor. I previously have owned a Logitech g402 and Mad Catz Cyborg Rat 7.
So with that said as a qualifier, I wasn't even aware of Mionix up until about a month ago. I decided to try the Castor first (and I actually just received the Naos 7000 a couple days ago, so I'm still working through that one) but immediately the Castor felt quite good albeit a bit odd for the first hour or so. It's a bit smaller than I standardly would use. I have pretty wide hands and usually mice of a similar footprint don't suit me very well. I knew it was going to be a bit polarizing going in, given the ergonomic shape.
-Looks: It's not very tacticool, where many gaming mice are very over the top. This is a very much less is more design, almost like the ethos of modernism. I quite appreciate it, it's flat black and the LEDs aren't overly bright. Some of the other mice I have are VERY bright which can cause some issues with certain colors (namely, purple, which if too bright of an LED will appear more pink than purple).
a) I think first and foremost Mionix has absolutely blown the textures of their mice out of the park. It's a very soft/smooth, almost rubbery feeling texture on the 'plastic' parts, with actual rubber on the thumb rest.
b) The shape on its own will be something you'll either love or hate. I feel like it's a lot more versatile than the initial impression might incline you to believe though. You can easily claw / fingertip grip this mouse, though for me palming can be a bit difficult, which is just as well because I don't really use a palm grip ever. Smaller hands (than my 11.5cm wide hands) could probably palm it also.
c) Buttons themselves are tactile without being overly harsh. Perhaps a touch softer than the omron switches that are very popular right now.
d) The mouse wheel isn't anywhere near a free spin and isn't very ratchety at all, rather about a rubbery wheel which you can feel defined bumps in, however it isn't overly ratcheted. I know everyone has their preferences here, so it may or may not suit everyone. It's worth noting that the mouse wheel is fairly recessed too.
-Performance: Between all of the mice I have, I feel that this is probably one of the 'lesser' sensors, or more dated ones. Don't be fooled though, this sensor is incredibly accurate. In fact, I don't really see a perceivable difference in tracking between this and the g502, rival 700 or basilisk which are all very modern 12/16k dpi sensors. In fact, I find the comfort of this mouse (for me) enhances my aim quite a bit in games beyond what I was noticing with the others. It's also worth noting that the Castor is quite a light mouse, coming in about 5g under the 100g standard of FPS mice.
This is currently my favorite mouse of the bunch, along with the Corsair m65, though this might be odd due to their drastically different shapes (and weights). It's quite different from the others and different from just about any mouse I've tried. The software can be a bit of a pain to get setup (definitely not their strong suit) but once you've saved your profile, you don't even need to use it ever again.
My favorite discovery was how the ergonomic bumps on the right hand side of it can be used in claw position as a more horizontal nub to hold to while in claw grip, it's very natural changing between fingertip and claw with this and works amazingly well.
