I use the HP BR376AA 5-Button Optical Comfort Mouse. Which is a bit of a mouthful. It's £13.20 (17,97€, $20.36) It's high-precision, works very well for gaming (I use it to play games quite a lot) Wired Additionally... It has 2 side buttons which are normally mapped to browser back/forward. You might be able to assign macros to them - I haven't researched ...

I had good experience with "gaming" mouse from Logitech. Current corded lineup seems pretty narrow, MX500 appears to correspond to what I had. Pros: it's quite wide which is good for hands; Cons: paying $30 for a mouse nowadays seems excessive. I once bought a Microsoft mouse for a friend of mine who did computer graphics, which is just as demanding as ...

I decided on the Logitech G600 Gaming Mouse (~$80 USD) as the replacement. This mouse supports Logitech's Gaming Software. I plugged it into my computer and it recognized the mouse without having to install any drivers, and I still had all my profiles from my old mouse. The mouse can have 5 DPI settings per mode and there are 3 modes per profile. The DPI ...

As you seem like a developer, a perfect fit for you would be any flavor of an Arduino. It is an easily programmable development controller with a massive backing of the maker community. This would allow you to take many inputs (skin sensors) and measure the voltage from 0-5v in 1024 steps, giving you 0.005v precision. This may not be precise enough, but a ...

As @ArtOfCode said in a comment, there aren't many mice out there that can connect directly to a device without a receiver. This is because most wireless components (Bluetooth or otherwise) are designed using their own special frequencies, encodings, or some other aspect that, when altered, can restrict freely connecting to any device. Most companies do this ...

The Logitech MX Master has a configurable scroll wheel which you can customize to either click-by-click or autoscroll. Quote (emphasis mine): Speed-adaptive scroll wheel Scroll through long documents or web pages faster and easier. The precision wheel auto-shifts from click-to-click to hyper-fast scroll. Logitech Options™ software lets you customize this ...

Assuming your plastic mouse pad is a good, solid color, the Logitech M500 (€27) is a fantastic laser mouse for the price. It's built for everyday use but can withstand occasional gaming. It's wired, ergonomically right-handed, has side macros, and 1000 DPI (which is more than enough for gaming). One thing you should take caution to is the track type. For ...

I've been using Logitech G700s for two years and I can recommend it as both ergonomic and reliable. Ergonomic mouse — sure, it is. Rotated angle for hand - not 0° or 90°, but a mix — yes, looks like about 20° Low(er) cost — usually $100, but today Logitech sells it for $50, making it a low(er) cost mouse. Have no idea of how long the sale will last. Mouse ...

Vertical mouse is OK only if you never take your dominant hand off the mouse. Regular users tend to keep moving their hand between mouse and keyboard. Vertical mouse is very bad for this as it takes extra time and effort to both let it go and grab back again. Trackballs are bit better, but if you do follow the common click-click-type-type-click-clik pattern ...

I use the Etekcity Scroll X1. It costs $15. It has 4 extra buttons (2 Side Buttons and 2 more behind the mouse wheel) It fits perfectly in my hand (I use the fingertip grip, i.e. I only touch the mouse with the tips of my fingers and the bottom of the palm of my hand) It includes drivers, and it's very cheap. It is 2400 DPI, but for 18 dollars you can get a ...

I would start with only systems that are "self contained", meaning they need no software or special drivers installed. These units will be recognized as a standard mouse and the OS will use a standard HID driver. There are 2 main technologies used in developing head controlled mice. Accelerometer/Gyro based systems like eeZee Mouse Tracer and Headmaster ...

The Logitech G502 would be great for your purpose. It has multiple macro buttons and all the buttons are programmable through software. The mouse is ergonomic and is a great gaming mouse. It is also not very expensive for what it is.

First of all, I would make sure that you aren't circumventing any policies by using hardware rather than software, but I'll assume that the powers that be simply don't want you installing things on those laptops. It sounds like you are looking for an IP KVM or KVM over IP. The cost of such hardware may be more than you are hoping, but I think these ...

I've been using an Apple Magic Trackpad 2 for the past week or so: It looks great on a desk, the poorly-lit Wikipedia picture doesn't do it justice. On a light wood desk, in warm light, it looks right at home. It also lines up well with a Magic Keyboard. As as programmer, I click things a lot. Being able to adjust the click sensitivity is wonderful - I have ...

The choice isn't very wide. I've been using Hama Roma and it broke down after two months. After this time it was really hard to use the left button. The mouse was missing almost every click... JSCO Noiseless USB Optical Mouse is quite popular. It has a lot of reviews. The most important part (source): Ask yourself "What are you looking for?" If you ...

The Magic Mouse is totally perfect for Blender 3D. My argument though comes with a caveat, you need to install the Better Touch Tool (BTT) and add more gestures. (See picture attached). Now you have middle click (By using 3 finger Click) and all the rest. I did buy the M557 as well but I sold it after awhile since I just love the magic mouse so much (...

You want a KVM over IP device. Something similar to TRIPP LITE B055-001, would work (assuming, in this case, the server has PS/2 ports for the keyboard and mouse). This model is about $120. There are USB enabled ones as well, such as the StarTech SV5USBM, which has only one USB connection. Adding on more connectors raises the price from about $100 to ...

I would go with the HAVIT® HV-MS672 Ergonomic LED Stress-ease Wired Mouse from Amazon. $10 (+) Normal mouse (+) Wired (+) Great for mousepads (smooth back surface) (+) Ergonomic (according to HAVIT ) (+) Some bonuses: 6 led lights (warning: cannot change to specific color ) (+) Back/foward button (+) DPI button (ideal for gaming with 4 options) (+) ...

Logitech MX master A really nice mouse that is made out of solid metal with a gold and black look. On the left side it has 3 buttons, with one featuring a gesture control. It means that you can do gestures for Windows and custom ones by holding that button. That button is also the thumb rest. Just right above that is a horizontal scrolling wheel and 2 macro ...

Try some mice out at a local store, thats the best way to see if they fit in your hand and feel good and ergonomic for you. And a real ergonomic mouse to prevent tennis elbow is something like this: CSL - TM137U optical sensor but i don't know if you want to use one of this kind. I think it would take some time to get used to it but health wise this shape ...

If you liked the Logitech M570 they now have the MX Ergo Plus, it has received favorable reviews with some minor complaints; price being the biggest concern. There's also the Elecom M-XPT1MRBK for a lower price, receiving favorable mention in the above review. The red trackball isn't for show, it improves the sensor's tracking.

Logitech's wireless mice with Unifying Receivers all have smooth-scrolling middle mouse buttons as far as I know. This listing of all Unifying devices out right now has some good alternatives for you. The M510 is one of the more robust, larger mice they make. Possibly the closest you'll get to the late M505 (RIP) is the M325 which is almost the same size ...

The Corsair M65 PRO RGB meets your requirements(http://www.corsair.com/en/m65-pro-rgb-fps-gaming-mouse-black), points by points: Wired, 168g with adjustable weights, 2 programming buttons on the side, around 65€ (in France), Corsair, RGB lightning, not that small but for you?

The Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury meets most of the requirements. It is a little more than your ideal price. It is $49.99 on newegg http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Order=BESTMATCH&Description=g402&N=-1&isNodeId=1 It is a wired laser/optical mouse The resolution is from 240 to 4000 DPI at 1000hz data polling ...

Just buy the MX Ergo. Unfortunately, trackballs are a fairly narrow market with not a ton of demand; unsurprisingly, this means that prices aren't exactly the most competitive. Finding something cheaper than the $50 Nakabayashi mouse with Bluetooth unfortunately is a rather tall order, and unfortunately, hackey solutions like converting a wired mouse to ...

I would go for the "Razer Deathadder Left-Handed Edition". I've been using it for many years now and it still works like a charm. It's great for gaming as well as regular school work. Read PCGamer's test on the best left-handed mouse for gaming. You can find it for around $40-70 at e.g. Insight or AliExpress.

I tried all four devices you asked to compare. In terms of accuracy -and responsiveness- Headmaster and Headmouse Extreme are the best. Nothing beat them, they are just perfect like a standard mouse is. If you have a good head movement you'll take the best from them. I'm a quadriplegia C4-C5 and I design with an Headmouse Extreme with sip/puff and the ...

What you're describing here is a drawing tablet, or a pen tablet, but usually all of these are made to act like a real pen, so left clicking is by pressing the pen tip on the pad's surface, or the screen in case of Cintiq or Surface pro or Samsung tablet 10.1 ... Etc many of these has even pen pressure sensitivity, some have tilt and rotation sensitivit. You ...

This was a hard one to find! This is my recommendation, the Griffin PowerMate Multi-Media Control Knob with Bluetooth Connectivity - Wirelessly control your Mac from Volume to Key Commands It has software that will let you change what the knob does. So instead of Volumn Up/Down, you will make it scroll up/down. The only reason I could see this not ...
