    Hi all,

    I'm starting to worry about my right hands wrist, it's aching more often than not, and it seems to be mouse use related.

    Since many of you in here work as much or even more on the computer, I wondered what your experiences are in terms of mouse ergonomics, especially of those with large hands.

    Any recommendations?

    - I prefer wireless, but it's not a must.
    - I play games oiaw, but no high speed stuff, would still prefer little to no latency.
    - ideally working on all surfaces.

    -my hands are 22 cm long and 12 cm wide, looking for a BIG mouse! :p

    Thanks for your attention!

    :)

    Thanks for your answers,

    (especially robalm :p ),

    I will definitely get one of those wrist rests, just have to find one that fits in the narrow space between the keyboard and the edge of my stupid sliding keyboard shelf...

    I couldn't find that contour design mouse around here, so I finally caved in and spent way too much on a

    Logitech Performance Mouse MX

    was about the biggest mouse I could find, and so far it seems to fit pretty good.
    We'll see.

    :)

    I second that, love the side scroll and back/forward buttons. And it's comfortable in my big man hands :/
