USB Big Mouse - gHacks Tech News

USB Big Mouse

When it comes to using a computer mouse, I like mine as plain and simple as possible. I only need three mouse buttons (left, right and middle) and a scroll wheel and that is it. A friend of mine, avid gamer, recently bought a 20+ button mouse as he likes all of the game controls on the mouse.

Computer mice come in all size and shapes. You can buy small models for mobile use, gaming mice with more than a dozen different buttons, plain two button mice and even mice for big handed individuals.

The USB big mouse that is manufactured by Brando nevertheless plays in a different league. The USB mouse measures a whooping 175mm in length, 105mm in width and 55mm in height making it one of the largest, if not the largest, retail mouse in the world.

When you look at the product image above you will notice that it comes with flashing LED lights and a translucent edge.

The core question here is whether it is ergonomic to work with this large mouse for an extended period of time. While that certainly depends on the size of the hands of the user, it looks as if the sheer size of the mouse requires movement not only of the hand but also lower arm.

The USB mouse comes with two mouse buttons and a scroll wheel. The flashing LED light makes it more of a gadget than a piece of hardware that you could work with all day. It is not clear if the effect can be disabled.

When you search for an extra large computer mouse for large hands you do not find a lot of offers, and while the USB big mouse looks more like a gadget, it could be an alternative for users with very large hands. The mouse retails for $20. More information are available at the manufacturer website.

Which leads to the following question: Which computer mouse are you using?

      Looks big enough to be a capybara, actually.

    I may need to get one of these for my giant-handed coworker.

    Since you asked at the end of the article, I’m a big fan of the Evoluent Veritcal Mouse:

    I notice a big difference in how my wrist feels after a day of using this mouse vs. a traditional one. It took me about a week to get used to it (and to stop tipping it over), but now I can use it just as effectively as any normal mouse.

      I personally cannot work with mice that are to big, think they require to much arm movement.

    I work in education so I sent this on to our Assistive technology.

    The mouse does seem very large but in some cases this might be perfect for people with disabilities.

    I use a Logitech MX510 at work and a G515 at home (for games).

    This one looks like it would make a pretty cool ambient light, hanging on the wall behind my monitor. I can’t imagine actually using it as a mouse, it’s bigger than my mouse pad!

    Use a mouse that big, long enough, you’ll need to go to the gym to work out your other arm! Anyway…..I like a much smaller mouse, Logitech M505.

    That mouse is freakishly huge!!
    For the last few years I have been using a Logitech Ergonomic mouse. Very nice, I like it.
    Recently I bought an HP Pavilion G6 laptop, which has become my main computer. One problem: it only has 3 USB ports, so my solution: the HP Wi-Fi Mobile mouse.
    I posted a review on my website.

    I switched to a wireless mouse that was advertised as “notebook mouse”. I broke the receiver and bought another “notebook mouse”. I just don’t wanna use “normal” mice again.

    I just need a three button mouse. I like that the notebook mouse is small, it’s easier to use the wheel. My fingers don’t hurt while that can happen with a “normal” mouse.

    I’m using A4 Tech peripherals for years – headphones, anti-RSI keyboards and mice.

    A4 tech “Ak-47” now.
