While shopping for a gaming mouse, a interesting one i noticed is the “Razer Naga MMOG Laser Gaming Mouse”. This mouse has 17 buttons!
At first i thought this would be the most stupid mouse. I thought that, some geek thought more button is better, so jam'd the mouse with cellphone number keys. The result would be very painful to use. However, from reading amazon.com's reviews, apparently it is usable.
After reading and watching many reviews, this is actually a very good mouse. Half of the buttons can be operated by touch easily.
When this mouse first came out in 2009, the number keys are not programable. They are simply the same as the number keys on number pad (so, you program the numbe pad keys instead). But with version 2 of driver, they are programable now! So, a mouse with truely 17 programable buttons. That's fantastic.
A better one, created later by Logitech, features sculpted buttons that's much more easier to press by feel.
And, if you are left-handed, or wield double mouses, one for each hand (as i do), this is for you.
Apparently, 17 buttons is too many for some. So, Naga came up with a 6 side buttons version, the Naga Hex.
For many, you don't really need 17 buttons. Also, other mouse has 10 buttons and has other advantages, such as wireless, or spin-wheel. Here's some other recommendations.

Lots of buttons are good for gamers. But if you are a programer, you'll love lots buttons too. A normal mouse with 5 button is not enough. See: Why You Need a 9 Buttons Mouse?.
Or, you can get some standard add-on keyboard with 10 or so programable key. See: Add Extra Function Keys to Your Keyboard.blog comments powered by Disqus
