A while ago, like 6 months ago, I was talking to a few people on here about trackerball mouses (I think @ChrisWere instigated the conversation).

I since bought myself an ergo mouse, well, 2 actually. I have one at home and one at the office. They’re weird at first, but really good once you get used to them. I haven’t had an aching forearm since!

Thanks Chris, I never would have considered an ergo mouse if it wasn’t for that discussion.

@kev
I bought this one for work (wired version has always my preference). It's really nice.

But I cannot use it at home: impossible to play with that and it require some time to adapt between it and a traditionnal one each time you switch (like one or two min where your arm feel unconfortable)
@ChrisWere

@Zykino I’m not really much of a gamer, so not an issue for me.

@ChrisWere

@kev @ChrisWere I have one of these at work. ANKER branding but appears the same. Like it a lot.

@rpcutts @kev What an unusual looking mouse. Does look comfy though.

@ChrisWere @rpcutts yeah, it’s weird at first, but very comfy once you get used to it.

@mike I got it from Amazon, it seems the same model is marketed under a number of names (it’s a cheap one, but works well). Just search for “ergonomic mouse” on amazon and you will find it.

Make sure you buy the correct left/right handed one, depending on your use.

@ChrisWere @rpcutts

@mike the one I bought is made by a company called Perixx.

@ChrisWere @rpcutts

@rpcutts @kev @ChrisWere I've got one with the Anker branding as well. Works great for me.

@kev @ChrisWere I've talked about getting one of those and my wife is enjoying it very much. Now to get another one for myself again 😊

@kev I’ve gotten myself the Logitech MX Vertical. Although it’s expensive, it’s the most comfortable mouse I’ve ever owned (and it’s got great features, too)

@kev @ChrisWere I've considered one of these for quite a while. Might end up grabbing one based on your recommendation. Thanks for the review.
