I am thinking of getting a mouse like the G5 from Logitech but I have heard rumors that mice that fit your hand like that can actually strain out the muscles in your hand and are actually more unconfortable after long periods of gaming (6-8 hours isn't long :thumbsup:).

Have you heard anything like this or have first hand experience?

Just my own experience, Klinkaroo, but a mouse that conforms to my hand seems easier on my hand muscles, especially when used for long periods at a time. It certainly seems a lot faster, too.

I think problems arise from not using support for your hand, wrist and arm and doing repetative motions, not so much the shape of the mouse or keyboard.

Try to find a mouse that fits comfortably in your hand and doesn't require unnatural motions or positions - uncomfortable movements of your fingers and wrist, etc, and then support your wrist.

I have a Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 (very ergonomic). It's a lot more comfortable than the default mouse that came with my box, and doesn't bother me at all in 3 hour Counter-Strike sprees....

Just thought I would announce that it's my birthday today so I grabbed all my money and ran over to the Office Supply store and bough me the MX610 Laser Cordless Mouse.

Normally 89.95 got it for 29.95 :thumbsup:

Anyways I got a little prob with the instant messaging light that won't light up when people send me an instant message with MSN messenger.
