Sounds Effects creation killed my wrist because of constant moves using mouse.... any1 of You have idead of something that i can switch to that will be better then using mouse ?
I have used a trackball, too.
I switched back to a mouse because I have to use PCs at different locations,
and switching from trackball to mouse and back isn't as easy as I've though
But with good optical mice it's not so bad as it used to be.
I've used (the wired version of) that one:Originally Posted by lukpcn
When your hands are not extremly large it's very comfortable to use
over longer periods of time.
The most important thing (to me) is that the ball should be as large as
" Reduces sickness costs! "
huh?!?! Explain that one...
I looked at the pic...a bit too phallyic for me. Pass.

I use Wacom tablets. I hate trackballs.
With a trackball you can't do accurate placement. Thumb control is crude, and when you want to nudge it by a few pixels, you touch the trackball and it jumps. You can adjust the sensitivity, but then you have to scroll, scroll, scroll to get anywhere. Yuk!
Tablets, on the other hand, give the accuracy of a pencil, let you hold your hand freely at a natural angle, use the larger muscles of the upper arm, and let you go from one corner of the screen to the other in one movement.
I recommend the 4x5 size for most work. It takes a small footprint, has more than enough accuracy for all but the most demanding paint projects, and lets you get from one corner to the other without too much movement. I have a 6x8 at work, and it's a bit much for normal work.
I bought mine because of wrist problems after drawing schematics all day with a mouse. Problem solved.
Best of luck!
