Date: Fri, 28 Jan 2022 07:48:30 +0000 (UTC) [thread overview] Message-ID: <email@example.com> (raw) In-Reply-To: <B549AFB7D383392C467505FEBAD96E08@prosimetrum.com> Hello all, I just quickly want to share my experience, although I haven't used any real three buttons mouse in the last ten years. For my laptop system I really love the (older) IBM/lenovo trackpoint. It has three physical buttons below the keyboard and I can reach them easily with my thumbs. I'm sure many of you know this experience. It's a different story on newer lenovo laptops (the ones with the modern keyboard) where the point feels sluggish and tends to drift, which is extremely annoying. Also it's deeper and it doesn't feel like you control the joystick. For my desktop environment I prefer the cheapest usable wired vertical mouse with scrollwheel (20 Euros). It's almost one of the first search results on amazon and it looks like many brands just use the exact same model from the same (chinese?) manufacturer, although there are slight differences in quality and feel. I can click on the scrollwheel to create a MB2 event, which is fine for me. I have to say I have used blender for years and am using Unreal Engine as a job, so I'm used to using the scrollwheel. The cheap vertical mice usually have two additional buttons at the thumb side in the upper part of the devices. They are mapped to forward/backward, but they're irrelevant for any 9 experience. I also have another wireless vertical mouse where these buttons are in the bottom part. In my experience it's better to have them in the upper part since you grab the mouse for dragging them around while repositioning. However, it's just weird holding the mouse in the air while pressing one of the buttons in the lower part. It's like pushing a button downwards while keeping the device up, against gravity. However, that's just my personal opinion. I barely use the device as I'm mostly in an office-like situation and for mobile the trackpoint has more benefits. sirjofri  if you try to get one of these make sure to not get the very cheapest. When I was looking the first I bought was 15 euros and it broke after half a year or so, the next one I got for 20 euros was fine and it's still in use after years. The material is not the best and feels cheap but I guess that's what you get for this price. ------------------------------------------ 9fans: 9fans Permalink: https://9fans.topicbox.com/groups/9fans/T49f3cceea70d2b61-M5f61a26523ee9cfea2a32353 Delivery options: https://9fans.topicbox.com/groups/9fans/subscription
