Firstly, the sensor feels great. In my honest opinion, it is better than other mice I have owned previously including the Zowie FK1, Microsoft WMO, Razer Copperhead, Razer Abyssus, Steelseries Kinzu... the list goes on
The shape and light weight are amazing! That is IF you want a lightweight and small mouse and use a fingertip grip, which I do. If you like your mouse to feel like a brick on the end of your arm and see gaming as a form of exercise, this is unlikely to be the mouse for you.
Negatives: there seem to be reports that the drivers / reset features can essentially break the mouse. I therefore opted NOT to install the drivers and cannot comment on how well they function.
There are also some quality control issues. I can confirm that there seems to be a delay in the response when clicking mouse 1 and mouse 2 simultaneously. This might break your rocket jumps. Personally, I am not good enough at Quake to really care. If you think you are going pro next year, this might cause you an issue.
Verdict: If you are a wealthy PC gamer who can afford to buy this mouse and upgrade it once BST fixes the Quality control issues, then buy it now. If every penny is a prisoner to you and you would like a more polished product, you might want to wait. But if BST doesn't make any money from this, then there might never be a 2nd version. So support this product and be generous.
Finally, buy it through amazon because the Ninox ordering system / website seems to be slightly dubious.
Mine won't work after I wake my computer from sleep. It simply requires a replug, but who would buy a mouse knowing they'd have to do this?
The software is fairly simple and easy to use -- saving your config doesn't seem reliable though. I adjusted my lowest sensitivity profile to use 400DPI, however it didn't actually change it after applying. It was only when I went back to it change something else that it actually applied it.
EDIT: and now when it DOES work after booting, the DPI settings aren't correct. The second and third profiles are the same setting. There is something seriously wrong with this mouse. I'm very close to sending it back.
EDIT 2: the behaviour after waking from sleep seems to be almost completely random. There are several different flavours; you get full normal functionality; you get it stuck on the last profile used without ability to switch until replug; you get a mouse that won't move until replug; you'll get a working mouse but the profiles are mixed up and/or not what you set them to.
There seems to have been next to no feedback from the manufacturer/designer to the community. I have not seen any information about new firmware. Who knows? Maybe it can be fixed. For now, the mouse is very nice in terms of usability, shape and so on. It's just bizarre that something we take for granted on most other mice is so completely unstable on this one. It's a pity really, because they were so close to something great.
Oh, and it feels extremely cheaply made and has a really odd cable -- think VGA cables with ridges running along their length and you're close. Despite this I'd be giving it a 5 star rating if they could sort the low level issues with it -- it really feels nice to use due to the extreme lightness. I've heard the term 'raw' to describe sensors in mice, and this mouse starts to give me an idea of what they mean. It's extremely responsive. If you're just completely intrigued by the mouse, I won't say it's a total waste of money. I think we can assume that the reason for the current low price is to shift what's left of the inventory. If there were any news on the horizon of an update, that'd be nice. For now, just heed the warnings of the other reviewers and myself -- it won't be a smooth ride.
EDIT 2: I highly doubt ANY professional gamer is using this mouse because if you spend just a few quid more you get a mouse of comparable performance that doesn't suffer from any such low-level issues that this one seems to have. I will say that 'when it works, it works' -- feels great in game.
At 70g this "cheap felt" mice beat the G-pro/G102, the Final Mouse2015 and the zowie fk2. (All around 85g)
FOR SMALL HANDS, CLAW GRIP STYLE.
3main downsides are :
- poor side buttons (thanks the OEM shape), some old games don't recognize them at all (Q3A).
- "pointy ass" that might bother some peoples in fingertip
- exist only in black (my setup is white)
Had to buy one more in 2017, my scroll wheel become rusty.
Pro : - Very light. Amazing shape (great for Salmosa, Abyssus, G3 etc...replacement)
- Amazing sensor (the best i've tested, no accélération),
- Buttons* respond well. *Left one's are well placed.
- Low LOD.
- Cool software very pro and full, nice lights customisation.
Cons : - Rope is not well balanced and a bit heavy compared to the shape, but it's still playble and a easy fixe.
- The building shape matérial is really delicat, so be careful. (I hope the mouse last long)
Anyway, i recommend 100% specially at sale, this is the best mouse i had since the Salmosa. I hesitated between this and the Kana v2, and i don't regret since the Christmas sale was really decent.

- ceux qui cherchent surtout la légèreté et la qualité du capteur (10g de moins qu'une Logiteck G PRO / MS IO1.1/Zowie FK2/Finalmouse qui pour moi se ressentent)
- ceux qui peuvent se passer d'utiliser les boutons sur le coté (ergonomie faible + problème de reconnaissance dans certains jeux dont Q3A)
- ceux qui préfèrent un design ambidextre à la répartition de poids et position centrale du capteur même si ce design se ressent "cheap"

Pros: near perfect shape for claw and fingertip, light (70 grams), no accel or smoothing, can easily mod the innerds into another mouse (like the wmo). Super respect to the guy who went out of his way to help build the mouse based on community feedback and did a great job.
Cons: Shape is just so small, it gives me hand cramps when gripping it for a long time. If it were the exact same shape and just a few milimeters longer and wider, it would be perfect. The software also gives me the low malfunction speed glitch as well on enotus mouse test but doesn't seem to effect me in game.
For the price (22 dollars) there is NO mouse that comes even close to the performance of this (aside from old microsoft mice with outdated sensors)
Without the factoring of cost, i would say this would be 4- 4.5 stars for not being palm grip friendly, but since its such a good value for the cost, i cant help but give it 5 stars
- It's extremely light
- The sensor performance is much better than average gaming mouses and perhaps perfect
- The clicks are tactile and easy to press
- The shape is perfect imo, I'm able to aim perfectly with any style of grip but the shape is small and people with big hands might not like it.
- The mouse feet are the kind I prefer, they're like hyperglides for the intellimouse so they glide very smoothly and there is less contact area than the Steelseries Sensei for example so it has less friction.
- It comes with a set of replacement mousefeet, I think the only other company that does this is Zowie and those are expensive.
- The sidebuttons are easy to use but they never get in the way, this is my favorite part about the mouse because I would misclick the back button on others.
- The clicks have much less latency than average (except if you press mouse1 and mouse2 at the same time, it may delay the second click for 50ms)
- The cord is protected so I assume it would not break as easy as a Logitech G400 cord (which had a tendency of breaking and rendering the mouse useless within a few months)
- I assume that the mouse is easy to disassemble since there is a visible screw at the bottom. This would be beneficial for cleaning/fixing/modifying the mouse without removing the mouse feet and damaging them.
- The mouse has a lot of options for the LED color like a Logitech G303/Deathadder Chroma but thats purely aesthetic.
- The mouse didn't have that high of a malfunction speed on my Artisan Shiden (semi-glass mousepad) but worked fine on all of my cloth mousepads (Steelseries QCK/Razer Goliathus Speed/Artisan Hien/Xtrac Ripper)
"cons" I've read about:
- The driver can potentially brick the mouse if you press Reset (maybe the drivers been updated to fix this, its on version 1.2)
- The quality control is dodgy. (mine functions fine but the mouse is so cheap it would be worth it to buy another if yours broke)
the shape, combined with the weight, sensor, and amazing side buttons give this mouse the potential to be the best, but the poor build quality, customer service, and software really drag it down. i hope to see a v2 some day with all of these issues remedied.
- Perfect shape for my fingertip grip
- Perfect Weight (70g)
- Good weight distribution.
- Awesome 3090 sensor with low lift off distance, no smoothing, no acceleration, no angle snapping.
- Limited DPI increments (400-800-1600-3200-4000)
- Thick & hard cable.
- While using 1000 hz polling rate, mouse-test shows it only reaches 950 to 970 hz.
- Quality of Left & Right click switch is mediocre compared to competitors. (so I ended up choosing Logitech g302 even though I prefer the shape of Ninox)
In contrast, I previously tested the following Optical mice:
Razer Abyssus: Used it for 2 years, awesome mouse but only works best on classic Goliathus Control mousepad.
Razer DeathAdder: Awesome sensor but too bulky & heavy for my fingertip grip
Avior 7000: Godlike sensor but too bulky & heavy for my fingertip grip
SteelSeries Rival: Godlike sensor but too bulky & heavy for my fingertip grip
Logitech g100s: Awesome sensor but buttons are too mushy I accidentally double click a lot.
Logitech g302 Daedalus: I chose this despite the weird shape because of the GODLIKE button switches w/ metal spring (soft as Omron but more tactile)
Yesterday it worked.
today launched the PC and the mouse does not respond to movement and button presses, the computer sees the mouse - I can change the color of the diodes and apply the settings. But the cursor does not move and does not respond to pressing. I tested on a laptop computer, and the second - the same problem
working only Wheel up and down - I wrote Support Tickets in ninox.org - waiting for an answer(((
the drivers dont work on windows 10
other than that 10/10 perfect mouse no issues (besides those above)
3-4m/s tracking speed with 2 sets of mouse feet.
Tracks on 2 CDs with double mouse feet (back of mouse on CDs, front touching mouse pad). Doesn't track on 3. Mousepad color doesn't seem to affect lod.
Cord is a little heavy & stiff for such a light mouse
The 3090 implementation is a lot better than Zowie's. There is no inaccuracy on the desktop, and the FPS game performance is better as well. Feels on par with the KPM sensor, though a bit different.
Doesn't feel as artificially processed as a lot of other mice, but does feel a bit off. One possible factor could be that the DPI value varies each time you measure by a range of around 25.
For some reason this mouse doesn't cramp my hand nearly as much as the FK1 even though at its widest it's the same width as the FK1 is at its thinnest. Only thing I can think of is that maybe it has to do with how the FK1 goes from wider in the back to thinner in the middle. Which forces an unnatural contortion in palm grip.
The fact that my fingers literally go over the front of the mouse and touch the mousepad in front, doesn't bother me that much. The overall shape is really good, but the mouse is too thin for me and others to comfortably palm.
Middle button too stiff to the point where I often accidentally scroll the wheel when I'm trying to press it. And too far back, so I can't scroll it with my middle finger.
Some people have complained that their scroll wheels have no noticeable notches. Mine does though, so there are likely quality control issues with this mouse.
The clicks feels pretty cheap, stiff/non-clicky, and a bit too hard to press. There's a somewhat minor bug when pressing both buttons at the same time: http://www.overclock.net/t/1240739/bsts-gaming-mouse/2400_50#post_23385319
Coating is nice for both dry and sweaty hands. Rubber on top, textured plastic on sides.
At default it malfunctions much easier than my 3.0 even though it's supposed to track twice as fast. But adding the extra set of mouse feet that come in the box fixes the problem.
In comparison with the KPM, the KPM has better build quality, aurora has a much better shape in my opinion, aurora is 20g lighter, weight balance is better, but lacks the native 50cpi increments.

Rank of mice I've recently tested:
2. KPM, aurora
3. avior7000 (got new firmware update I was unable to test because I'd already returned it. New update might increase rank.)
4. all the rest
- Clicks feel nice and crisp
- Lighting effects look great on the mouse
- Tracking is superb, not jitter, accel/decel
- 2 Side buttons
- Shape is great
- Ninox drivers don't mess s*** up, it's nice and easy to use (for a company just starting)
- Feels a tiny bit cheapish, but not bad by any means
- Mouse feet are rubbish (Would advise taking off the stock feet and buying some hyperglides MX1 version and apply them at the top and very bottom, i've done this and it works great)
- The cable is too damn thick! (WORST CON) the darn thing drags. Highly recommend a mouse bungee for this mouse!
All-in-all this is one of the best mice i've ever used it feels great in the hand, crisp clicks, tracks amazingly.
*Sensor position is OPTIMAL*, no 'smoothing', overall responsive clicks.
Medium to low profile shape so your aim feels very connected.
Software could use some revisions, clicks are a bit stiff for supposed Omrons and has a bit of button travel, stiff cord.
You can calibrate the mouse buttons if they feel too stiff.

Some people may complain about this should be done by the manufacturer, but honestly you get to CONTROL your click responsiveness using this method. You can adjust the strength, so if you prefer tactile clicks, then you can have that, or if you prefer softer clicks, you can also do that.
If you have a problem with opening the mouse, there is only one screw, and it does not void the warranty, unless you peel off the sticker for whatever reason.
4.8/5 with calibrated softer clicks. 5/5 with better cord, which you could also add in yourself.
