Can't believe I'm asking this, what's the best computer mouse?

What's the best computer mouse for office users? In my particular case I very much like the idea of avoiding carpal tunnel, I like extra buttons also (like a gaming mouse), and if it's expect to last a long while that's great.

Anything coming up on Black Friday? I thought Logitech g502 would be really cool. My preference is for a wired model moreso than Bluetooth. I just don't like messing around with batteries or charging.

Logitech MX Revolution but seeing as they don't make that anymore and you'll spend a small fortune on ebay, https://www.amazon.com/Logitech-W...b_title_ce It's RF and Bluetooth. Charge once a month and you're good to go.

Also https://www.amazon.com/Logitech-9...B002HWRJBM, although it's wireless, you can use it wired.

A mouse is pure preference... Go to a b&m shop and try some out. If they feel comfortable and your hand is resting in a "natural" position, buy it and try it. If after a few hours use your hand hurts, return it and rinse/repeat. Bestbuy has a great return policy...

Get a vertical mouse if carpal tunnel is a real concern. Otherwise, look at the MXMaster by Logitech. It's amazing once you get used to the scroll wheel.

I love my Microsoft 5 button wired IntelliMouse Optical mouse (D58-00002). That personal preference thing @juicemane_ mentioned. Good luck finding one to test in a store though. I have purchased them on eBay and recently scored a NOS one at a computer repair store for $10. When my hand starts hurting I switch hands (it's symmetrical). I also had good luck with a touchpad - you may want to check out something like the T630 Touch Mouse by Logitech.

I don't love my amazon basics corded mouse, but I don't hate it, either.

I used to love my Microsoft Comfort Mouse 2000, but replacements were hard to come by. Tried a few cordless mice and was disappointed. Thought I'd try this cheapie and as it happens I don't hate it.

" Which mouse fits your hand? "

That is the question to be answered.

as others have mentioned *you* need to go put your paw on some mice and see which ones "just fit" with out you doing any special positioning with your hand to reach the buttons/wheel/etc.

I bought one of these [amazon.com] a while ago for office work, and the soreness in my wrist has all but disappeared. It's not 'perfect', but it's so far been one of the best mice I've used in a long while for office work.

For reference, I do a lot of schematic capture and other CAD work, as well as a metric crap-ton of spreadsheet manipulation. That all means that I use the mouse far more than I'd prefer.
