Logitech seems to be the favorite so far. I also have a Logitech Trackman Marble Wheel and I love it. I chose it mainly because I liked the way it fit my hand. I'm left handed but I use my right hand for the mouse. Don't know why but it just seemed natural. laugh I do have to clean the ball occasionally to get the cat hair out since one of my cats likes to lay on my arm when I use the computer. Love those cats. wink

I like a Microsoft roller mouse, but it is too slow for me if I have to move the cursor fast. In such a case I use a Logitech optical wireless mouse which has a central wheel and is symmetric, so I can use it either L hand or R hand. I often use it L hand so I can write notes with my R hand. The Microsoft roller mouse is set up strictly for the R hand. I'm waiting expectantly for the new generation of "mice" in which you just move your fingers around on a horizontal surface and press slightly for a "click". laugh laugh

I have a Logitech trackball mouse. Had to switch to it a few months ago because my wrist and arm hurt so much from using a regular mouse. Now I only have problems if I have been playing games for a long period at one sitting. Another added benefit is when you have company and they want to use the computer, they don't usually use it for very long as they are used to the traditional mouse. A trackball does take a bit of getting used to and I still have trouble when playing a game which requires quick movement. Can't seem to spin the ball quite fast enough sometimes.

I love my Microsoft Explorer 3.0 - exceptionally easy on the hand. I've tried several different kinds and have taken them back, until I got this one.

Thanks for the comments all! One summary might be we're all different so different things suit us.

I'll check out trackballs and wrist rests. Currently I like mice which glow in the dark over their cousins who need to be on a mat.

At the moment I am using the plain old mouse that came with my computer and I hate cleaning it which is why I bought a microsoft wireless optical blue mouse on 8-31 it seemed to work great and then I went on vacation for a week and when I got home I started playing syberia and discovered that the game would not reconize the clicking unless I moved the mouse slightly at the same time checked it with other games and the same thing so I contacted microsoft support and they have been trying to help me fix it but this morning turned on computer and started doing a few things and it just up and quit altogether mad on the brighter side of things I have a great excuse to go to the computer store and you know I won't come home with just a new mouse. laugh

I have a four year old Logitech MouseMan Wheel - it gets daily constant usage (at work, where I'm a developer), it is still smooth and accurate.

It has a slightly odd shape that is definitely not for lefties. It has a high left hand edge arch and a low right hand edge, but my favourite feature is the thumb button low on the left side, that I have set up as a double click!

Ta-ra,
The Gremlin.

For three years, I've been using the Logitek Marble Mouse. I've never set it for "Lefties", yet, I am lefthanded.
