    Default Whats your mouse of choice?

    Mouse is giving up the ghost again and I wanna get something decent to replace it, last one I got was a Elecom EX-G, which was supposedly a variation of one of their more popular models made to suit big hands. When it arrived it didn't seem especially large, but it did the job so I lived with it.

    Now the left button is giving up on me and its starting to drive me fucking nuts, so a replacement is due asap, been looking at larger models again and seen a few that are kinda vertical, meaning your hand doesn't lie on top, but is kinda like a grip, anyone tried those?

    Also kinda curious about ones with a trackball on em, is that actually useful?

    Don't really wanna blast too much on a mouse, real world 30 - 40 quid ish.

    Logitech G502 series mice are good. The Proteus Spectrum is 45 on the Rainforest...

    I have an older G502 with no fancy RGB lighting and it's a great mouse.

    There's a more expensive version with adjustable weights (I took all my weights out), and there's a G402 for 32

    The logitec ones look a bit overkill for me, I'm not much of a PC gamer, 90% of my PC time is spent in powerpoint.

    The death adder is over 1000RMB here, so that's out!

    appreciate all the input here, but I'm gonna ignore you all now I've spent the last few hours looking at twisted wrists and reading about people crippled by RSI.

    Decided I wanna give a vertical mouse a go, since it seems I wont see 2020 without one from what I have read. Gonna go for a cheap 15quid one first, if I get on with it I'll consider a nice Logitec one.

    I have the Anker one, not quite vertical more like a handshake. I also have the Microsoft sculpt keyboard. Still have the carpal tunnel symptoms but would like to avoid the operation.

    Well mine just arrived and I am pretty impressed, the model I got is some nonsense chinese brand but it sells in the west as Nulaxy.

    I watched some videos on youtube, all of which said it was quite difficult to get used to, but after 10 minutes I was using it easily, it still feels weird, but it doesnt make doing anything more difficult.

    I'd definitely recommend giving one a try next time you need a new mouse.

    Back on track. Corsair GLAIVE for me bloody brilliant for big hands... plus its decent at everything. Mainly play FPS games. Lots of jerky wrists movements.

    If you have small lady hands I suggest the CoolerMaster MM830

    If you have the operation watch it being done.
    I sat in a Chair with my hand resting on a table to my right while they cut my wrist open and cut through the band.
    I say cut it was more a sawing action like cutting through very tough gristle.

    The worst part was watching the incision being pulled open with the spreaders and seeing inside my wrist
    And then the whole struggle of wiping my ass for a month or two lol.

    My right hand needs doing so I might try one of these mice and see if it helps.

    That sounds like butchery mate I would pay for the micro surgery. Also I can't wipe left! I need some means of complete relaxation of my right wrist. Sat holding a weighty gin here thinking I should go back to using the wrist splint at night.

    You can only put it off so long.
    I lasted about a year before it got too much.

    I got to the point of constant pins and needles in my hand and couldn’t hold anything without pain shooting through my hand and wrist.
    I actually sat in the doctors and cried as the pain was unbearable in the end.

    When they examined me I had little to no muscle wastage so they were confused but went ahead and it’s changed my life.
    I was pretty unlucky though as i still get pain now holding small items (insert penis jokes here) weeding tools and pens for more than a minute is painful but it’s not too bad.

    I know my my right wrist needs doing but I can’t take the time away from work. (self employed)
    and my 2 year old lad is a daddy’s boy so he would really miss out on a lot.

    I knew something was going wrong and the thing that made me go to the doctors was I couldn't pick up a screw from a pair of glasses, I ended up using super glue to fix the screw to the screwdriver. I was sent for a nerve conduction test and then referred to the clinic for the operation. Sounds like the same setup as yours, lying down with the arm on a table, slice it open and tinker with it.

    I'll look into the micro surgery if it doesn't improve by Christmas. I really don't want the big scar. Someone at work said his sister had the operation and they went through on the back of the hand side! That's horrible, particularly for a woman I think.
