What mouse do y'all use?

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to get a ergonomic mouse and was wondering what mice people like the best.

 

I was thinking about the new trackball but wasn't sure how well that works in the program.

 

Advice needed, thanks!

I use a Microsoft corded mouse at work and a Razor ergo shaped gaming mouse on home unit (I don't game, just draw). Somewhere there's a mouse related thread (probably in Discussions, not Suggestions) and some guys are big into these funky ergo mice. No way I could get used to a Track Ball. Try a general search in the Search Bar above. -bB

I'd been using Logitech M570 for years. Recently with change to desk and monitor I ended up with wrist/arm issues and needed to change something. (eventually discovered part was where I placed new monitor and moved my location). I first tried the new Logitech Ergo, disliked software and didn't solve it.

Ended up trying vertical mouse (forget which) a sort of vertical mouse (Kingtop) and a mess of trackballs-too many to list. I also tried a mess of wedges, supports, wrist things....

 

I ended up with an Elecom EX-G Pro as my go to day to day.It's a lot like the M570-thumb driven ball, angle of hand to device is slightly different as is tilt, more buttons too.That is my go to with Chief though I did switch the ball and use one from a 570 in it, rolls a little more the way I'm used to. I also kept a finger driven Elecom-the Huge. I switch to that off and on, usually when doing non Chief things since I haven't adapted completely to some of the click and drag operations I like with it. But it is a very comfortable device, I tried really hard to adapt to it overall. Just since I liked it and it was cheap I also kept the Kingtop and once in a while I use that for whatever. Switching helped me heal a bit faster (pretty much fine now and try to use the phone left handed) At one point I also considered trying a left handed Elecom Ex-G. All in all I'm really hapy with the Elecoms.

I know Kbird likes finger drive.

I used a Microsoft trackball mouse in years past and more recently switched to a Logitech two-button-wheel mouse. It has served me reliably for three years now, I do not miss the trackball.

I use a gamer mouse that came with the computer... it looks like it has 8 buttons and a scroll wheel for my right hand.

 

For my left hand I have a 3D Connexion space navigator mouse.

After 20 years of computer work I started developing some wrist pain (probably carpal tunnel syndrome) - I ended up buy this mouse and the pain went away in a couple of days! I have been using it for 6 years (the same one!) about $100 well worth it...takes a day or 2 to get used to it...

Looks like a really Clunky Mouse but I can see the Ergo Benefits as I use a Microsoft ergo Keyboard which really helps both of my wrists when using the keyboard (especially if you Use the Home Keys in lieu of Hunt and Peck.

 

Does this Evoluent Mouse track nicely when dragging walls and CAD lines? Eg, after getting used to it, does it "Get out of the Way"? thanks, bB

LIke I mentioned, I have been using the same Evoluent mouse for 6 years, no issues! works beautifully in any software (I used Autocad, Chief and some Archicad) Highlyl recommended! Just order the correct size, depending on your hand/grip size

If you have a slide out drawer for your  Eoluent mouse make sure it will fit in  height, I keep scraping my knuckles on the top of the drawer.
