In its most basic form, computer Mouse is simple hardwarea with a sensor on bottom, two buttons and a scroll wheel on topthat lets you interact with programs as though they were extensions of your own hand. But while Mouse is simple in concept, market for them is a scattered field of Mouse genres, prices, and designs. You need to know a little about the landscape when you go shopping for a new model. Over time, distinct classes of mice have evolve, each making for different computing situations. The most common of these is the mainstream desktop Mouse, designed for use with desktop or laptop PC on a desk or table. Aside from the inevitable right and leave Mouse buttons, usual features are clickable scroll wheel and, in some cases, additional thumb buttons that let you navigate forward and back in your web browser. Travel mice offer many of these same features but come in smaller size. They are re designed to fit easily into the pocket of a backpack or laptop bag. For this same reason, however, travel mice tend to be small for most handsyou. Can use them just fine for short stints, but they become uncomfortable over long periods due to unnatural grip require. Generally speaking, travel mice are wireless and battery - power, so you may want to bring along a spare set of AA or AAA batteries if that is what they use. Beyond these ordinary mice are two key Mouse genres: gaming Mouse, and ergonomic Mouse. There's lot of variance within each, and some crossover among all of these classes. Let's take a look at the gaming field first, then move on to other genres and aspects that affect all mice.

The Computer Mouse is a vital tool. Since the launch of Apple Macintosh in 1984, it has helped consumers navigate countless Windows, icons, and menus in the digital world without having to memorize an endless string of Byzantine keyboard commands. But, with repeated use, device can also lead to problemsfrom mild wrist pain to musculoskeletal disorders like De Quervain's disease, kind of tendinitis in your thumb. In response, Adesso, Logitech, Microsoft, and other companies have developed Ergonomic Mice, designed like Ergonomic keyboards to place less stress on your wrists, forearms, and shoulders. Some models slope upward, like a joystick, placing your hand in a handshake position. This helps reduce pronation, twisting of your forearm when your palm faces downward. Others use familiar horizontal design, but remain stationary on the mousepad, using Trackball maneuver by thumb to steer the cursor. This design can be helpful if moving the mouse causes pain in your wrist. Yet others employ a hybrid approach. Microsoft Sculpt, for example, is like a small ramp with enough horizontal DNA to feel familiar in your hand, but enough pitch to ease stress on your forearm. How CR tests Ergonomic Mice To help you choose the best option, CR put eight popular models to test. Dana Keester, Human - Factors specialist on Consumer Reports ' Consumer experience and usability Research team, photographed the hand of the test subject, examining images to see how mice affected the position of subjects wrist and arm. To get some idea of the learning curve required to master each Mouse, she uses various Mouse - click games, recording test subject's accuracy and efficiency over a series of trials. What do we learn? Well, for one, you dont need to spend big money to get a good Ergonomic Mouse. For $17, you can purchase a model that is just as good as the $100 one. It might not have features such as Wireless connectivity, but it will lower strain on your muscles and tendons. If youre left - hand, be aware most models are designed solely for righties. In our reviews below, we list a few leave - hand options. Aside from scoops on sides to rest thumb and finger, design is fairly typical. Horizontal orientation places stress on forearm and wrist, making this model only slightly better than regular Mouse for anyone seeking relief from pain. The model features six programmable buttons for keyboard shortcuts and browser controls, three DPI settings that help you fine tune the device's sensitivity, and a matte finish that feels comfortable under fingers and palm, but the low profile of the scroll wheel makes it less easy to locate and activate. USB dongle provide for wired connection ca be stored in Mouse, which may make it easy to lose. No leave - hand option. This mouse places the forearm, wrist, and hand in a handshake position, greatly reducing stress on the forearm. When properly orient, it reduces wrist extension, too.


2. Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Mouse

Microsoft's one and only entry into this list comes in the form of its intriguing Sculpt Ergonomic Mouse. Because it is Microsoft, it is not surprise that its design is to closely integrate with Windows, even including a dedicated button to open the Start menu. Still, it bills as a device for Windows 7 and up and so you might experience some problems if you try to use it on an older OS. It should also work on Android 3. 2 and 4. 2 and more recent versions of Mac OS X. That is perhaps a little less than other wireless devices on the list, but realistically it is better to change batteries more often anyway so that they dont start to break down and possibly damage battery compartment or weaken signal. Microsoft also use device to show off BlueTrack technology, which combines optical and laser technology to provide better tracking. You should be able to use Mouse on virtually any surface, although, realistically speaking, it is best to stick to using a desk so that you reap ergonomic rewards. Its design is to promote more natural posture amongst users to maximize comfort while making it easier than ever to navigate. Luckily, they also offer Comfort Mouse, another addition to their Sculpt range which is designed to be ambidextrous. Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Mouse is also one of the heaviest mice that weve come across, weighing in at nearly 1lb. Some users find that reassuring, but others are put off by weight and bulkiness and prefer to go for something little simpler. One useful side effect of that weight is that, while it feels almost weightless if you use it correctly, youll definitely notice weight if your posture is off. All in all, Microsoft Mouse is good but not great, and it was disappointing to see that mighty Microsoft wasnt able to rank any higher. The truth is that the best ergonomic mice are often manufactured by smaller companies that specialise in ergonomic design and technology - and these challenger brands are often cheaper to buy from, too.

Not Just USB: Mouse Connectivity

The simplest way to hook up Mouse to your PC is via wire USB connection. Computer mice are usually plug - and - play devices, with no additional software to install, meaning that plugging in cable is all the setup you 'll need to deal with. Unlike wireless alternatives, wire device will draw its power from USB, so there are no batteries to worry about. Wired connections are also preferable for serious gaming or esports use, though some high - end wireless mice are indistinguishable, from a response - time perspective, from wire ones. If you want more freedom and less cable clutter on your desk, however, it's hard to beat the wireless Mouse. Instead of wired connection, wireless mice transmit data to your PC through one of two primary means: RF connection to USB receiver, or via Bluetooth. Both have their pros and cons, but if you want to reduce the number of cables on your desk and gain flexibility to use your Mouse unhinderedor even from across the roomwireless, is the way to go. Most wireless mice connect to host computer via the same 2. 4ghz wireless frequency Use by cordless phones and some Wi - Fi Internet bands. Dime - size USB donglesmall enough to plug in and forget aboutprovides link to your PC. Know, however, that only in some isolated cases can a single USB dongle provide connectivity to more than one device. That means that unless the vendor specifically notes otherwise, you can't use the same adapter for your wireless Mouse and Keyboard. You may need to devote two USB ports to separate Mouse and Keyboard USB dongles. Bluetooth options, in contrast, don't monopolize USB port, and stable, easy - to - manage connections are ideal for use with mobile devices, such as ultraportables, tablet PCs, and 2 - in - 1s. In regular use, Bluetooth connection gives you roughly 30 feet of wireless range, but Bluetooth Mouse may not match the battery life offered by devices with RF - base USB dongle. New innovations, such as motion sensors tied to power and connection management, can improve battery life versus older Bluetooth devices, which maintain an always - on link that drains the battery relatively quickly. But you 'll want to look at how vendors estimate battery life on charge.
