Hello everyone :)

My Microsoft IntelliMouse Explorer 3.0 seems to be generating multiple left clicks...... Second one in a row...  Very annoying...

Thinking about getting a new mouse, any recommendations?

Something that would fit a relatively big hand would be quite handy...

Thanks!

Joseph

For a PC mouse, nothing to me beats my Logitech G5

They make a few of the same shape/ergonomics to if your looking for different options with the same style.

G5 v1 (the one i have) - http://pricespy.co.nz/product.php?p=261579
G5 v2 (no ergonomic change) - http://pricespy.co.nz/product.php?p=383986

Logitech also do some good cheaper ones too like the

M500 - http://pricespy.co.nz/product.php?p=443426

Either way, logitech all the way, never had such a good mouse.

Logitech MX518 perfect balance between price and performance, it's half the price of a G5.

My hunt for a new mouse ended today :)

A big thanks to everyone who replied to my post!

Here's what I did in the end:  I have always been a Microsoft guy - mouse, keyboard, webcam, etc.  But... I couldn't find a mouse from Microsoft that fit my hand...  Anyway, I bought a Logitech Performance Mouse M950 from PB.  The mouse fitted my hand perfectly, and it's really comfortable!  The tracking appears to be quite good.  And it came with all sorts of re-charging accessories.

Again, thanks everyone!

Yeah, it's really really comfortable!  Definitely don't want to go back to the old mouse now! :)

I also saw one of Logitech's gaming mouse has a space that let you customize the weight of the mouse, that's quite thoughtful.

I wonder, should input devices come in different sizes like shoes or clothes?  Does anyone struggle with their smartphone keypad?  Definitely not big hand friendly!
