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?Advertisement
