Optimal mouse for using LabVIEW?

Have you tried Logitech master? A little more convenient for me

Main wheel switches between free spinning to increments automatically (also can be assigned to the button). That is even better!

Extra buttons (3 + separate horizontal scroll + panning).

Also large and comfortable.

Word of caution in the free spinning wheel mode with multiple monitors or windows open.

If you give the wheel a good spin then cursor over to a menu bar or ribbon it can scramble up the application menu appearance pretty badly. Had a few WTH experiences until I figured out what was going on.

Also on the subject of ergonomics, I've been using a split keyboard for a while now and enjoy it.  It is the Kinesis Freestyle2, with VIP3 adapter.  Basically the two halves of the keyboard can be 10 inches apart, with a wrist rest, and lifting on one edge.  It throws other people for a loop trying to use it but I like being able to have my hands more separated.  That being said it is pretty expensive for a non-mechanical keyboard.

On the subject of my split keyboard, Kinesis now makes a split gaming mechanical keyboard with cherry switches, basic lighting, profiles, and macro capability for what sounds like every key on the keyboard (allowing function, shift, and control modifiers).  Saw the youtube review here yesterday.

I just ordered one Logitech MX Master here on the German amazon now. Looks much comfortable than what I have now!

I have a Logitech MX Anywhere 2 mouse, and since it is a "laptop mouse", way too small. I have small palms, but even so I do not find this mouse comfortable, either it is out of my palm ahead, or I have to bend up my fingers on the buttons, which gives bad tension at my wrist 😞

For keyboards, the Kinesis Advantage is also pretty nice.

Considering LabVIEW's demands, I recommend the Logitech MX Master 3, Razer DeathAdder Elite, Corsair Dark Core RGB/SE, SteelSeries Rival 600, and the Microsoft Precision Mouse. Each excels in precision and functionality. Check them out for an enhanced LabVIEW experience! For more curated lists and features Visit the Best collections of mouses under $100.

Fun to revisit a post from 7 years ago.  Took a moment to reminisce to myself where I was at the time.


Anyways, 7 years ago I highly endorsed the Logitech Performance MX.  Over the span of 7 years, this mouse has been discontinued and greatly improved upon to bring us the Logitech MX Master 3.  Which I highly recommend to any and all LabVIEW developers.

Ah memories.  


I'm still using the very same Evoluent Vertical mouse I got....12 years ago?  


I've replaced the left contact switch a few times now, but otherwise it been great.
