Ergonomic mouses

I am looking for an ease-of-use mouse for a RSI condition in the pointy-finger. I have tried a razor copperhead at the local gamingcafe and compared to my MX500, the razor is much more light to click with, which is good. It just has an awkard shape with a lot of hangtime, which strains me too much.

Has anyone any experience or knowledge about a mouse that has ergonimically designed, light-to-click buttons? The wrist is not a problem, so it can be a standard mouse shape.

On another note, does anyone know, if you can play WoW and such with the Quill Nab(former Mousetool) auto-clicking program at a decent rate?

*Edit* Just noticed this should be Off Topic, oh well :eek:

Logitech has come out with some pretty new n' sexy mouses since the MX500/700 days (and I know EXACTLY what you're talking about, great mice..)

would check out their website, browse around n' see what you can find..

beware of some of the microsoft 'intellipoint' mice.. at least if its at a "bargain", i've seen 4 of those break in this house, all within a year.

The Razer mice are special in that you have to get used to and adjust your mouse handling to the mouse a lot more than other brands of mice.

While other brands of mice are shaped to fit in the hand, the razer mice are shaped to allow you to hold it in differend positions. I, for instance, have very large hands. I also like to have high sensitivity on my mouse, and thus i control the mouse with the lower palm of my hand resting on the mousepad, and only the fingers moving. This allows precise movements with no movement of the arm at all. I can also lower the sensetivity drastically when playing FPS games for instance, and place the mouse differently in the hand so i can move quickly and precisely using my whole arm and hand.

It just takes quite a bit of getting used to.

I just use a generic Philips mouse. It looked kind of cute in the store and it matched my keyboard.

Here is my mouse. I love it for playing any type of game. I'm not too sure how well it would serve you with your finger problem, but I've been using it for a while now and haven't had any problems.

If I was going to get any mouse today it would be the Logitech G7. The G5 and G7 are the best combination of functionality and gaming goodness. Razers are great gaming mice but don't have the neat features of the Logitechs, and they're corded.

And don't let me hear any rubbish about cordless mice being inferior for gaming. It simply isn't true.

You know the G5 and G7 are corded, right?

But I agree about the cordlessness being fine for gaming. I've been using an MX700 for about 2 years, and it keeps up fine in CounterStrike.

Cordless mice very may well be just as good as a corded mouse, but its for a desktop. Its not supposed to be moved around a lot. I just dont understand the concept of using a wireless mouse. Unless of course you are playing on a 50" screen and you just simply cant be that close to the screen. Otherwise I see no reason to get them, they are more expensive and there is just more that can go wrong with them.

Pat, the G7 is the cordless version of the G5.

I sort of have the less luxurous version of that mouse. They're nice. Better than the Star Trek Deep Space Nine mouse I used to have. Despite of cleaning its ball it kept bugging me. This one has a lovely light inside it, and no balls.
:jig:

i saw one of those trackball thingies at school, it was in a pile of old computers and those really weird mice with 3 buttons and no scrollwheel (apparently it was cool back then)

i always hated the windows default use of the scroll wheel (intelli-mouse) scrolling whatever has focus

i use a program that takes over and scrolls whatever window/scrollbox/listbox the mouse hovers over
works alot better when scrolling through huge lists in multiple windows
