If you were thinking of buying a corsair M90, have large hands and like to palm or use palm grip as a hybrid with another style........

Don't buy the M90.

For whatever reason, the designer of the M90 decided to make a right handed mouse, then give it dimensions that dont make sense for a right handed person.

For instance, here is the top down view.

500

The left side of the mouse is shorter in length than the right side.

This would assume that the designer believes that right handed people have middle/ring fingers that are notably shorter than their index fingers and therefore need less space for their right mouse buttons........do you have a middle finger/ring finger that is a centimeter shorter than your index finger?

A. If you try to palm the mouse with your ring/pinky finger hanging off the side of the mouse, your middle finger badly overhangs the right mouse button. There is also no lip on the left side of the mouse to rest your pinky, it's just a straight drop.

B. If you try to palm the mouse with your middle finger covering the mouse wheel and your ring finger controlling the right mouse button, your middle finger will have nowhere to rest and your ring finger will also be overhanging the right mouse button.

C. If you try to palm/claw hybrid, you will still need to bend whatever finger you use to control the right mouse button at a much more drastic angle than your index finger which is the only finger you can "relax" on the mouse without needing to support it with your own muscles.

D. If you use a fingertip grip where only the tips of your fingers are on the mouse, the above problems are lessened, but pressing the already stiff buttons becomes kind of annoying uncomfortable.

The little hump on the upper/rear left side of the mouse is a good idea if you employ option B, but then your middle finger literally has nowhere to rest unless your bend it at an unnatural angle and your ring finger over hangs the right mouse button.

The very implementation of said hump compels you to palm/hug the mouse and make use of it, but using it introduces other short comings.

My hand measures 21.5-22cm from wrist to longest finger so if your hand is anywhere as big and you dont use a pure finger tip grip, I would strongly advise you to avoid this mouse.

If you have small hands, then you may not have problems, but I cant get over how anyone would design a mouse to be shortest at the point where your longest fingers are supposed to rest mad.gif
