    Has anyone used a vertical wireless mouse before? Are they any good?

    Hi all
    So I've recently got a Mac - after using a surface for a few years which was great for my RSI as I just used the pen the whole time - but now I am back to the normal mouse world, so I am trying to find the best RSI safe mouse there is, and saw lots of people recommend vertical mice.

    So I w as wondering if anyone has any experience with them, are they a gimmick? Do they help?

    Thanks in advance!

    I have one and I don't use it but it weird to use. Probably good for office use but not for gaming.

    They are suppose to be a more natural feel but, I don't think you get the same control as a normal mouse.

    Have you tried a trackerball?

    Yeah, I have read they are strange for gaming, but would be office so not so much of an issue.

    Haven't looked into tracker balls as they seem too far out there, but could be convinced, but not exactly something that's easy to try without buying.

    For reference it's graphic design work i do, so not sure how tracker balls are with that field either.

    Can't help with an opinion but I am going to get one to test out. My curiosity has got the best of me.

    Vertical mouse or trackball?
    Which one are you going for - there are so many out there, difficult to decide!
