G400 uncomfortable?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey guys.
My local shop had a G400 on a great special(and it was the last one), so I went in blindly and bought it. And I can't seem to get used to it. It's the second day now and my hand still hurts a bit. I have a Gigabyte M6980 and it's much more comfortable for me ( I bought another mouse for my second PC). Will I get used to it? Or is it just not for me ?

sometimes it takes time, especially if the mice are drastically different shapes. i went from an MX510 to an Ouroboros and it took me 4-5 to get completely used to it. if it still hurts after that return it

I have had the G400 and G400s, and feel they are both extremely comfortably. Sorry wish I could tell you more, do you palm or claw grip the mouse?

Its kinda like a relaxed claw grip (base of fingers at the back end of the mouse, and fingers kinda relaxed). I tried palming it too, without much better results.

I sort of have the same grip style, so I don't really know what to say. Mice can be a personal preference/comfort thing though. Have you had the same experience with other products?

I remember taking time getting used to my Genius (which is not a really well known mouse), but now I really like it. Hopefully this will be the same. The funny thing is, my forearm is hurting the most. I'm hoping I strained it doing pushups or something, but I kinda doubt it.

Hard for me to chime in, but I came from an MS Explorer intellimouse 1.0 so the shape was easy to adapt too. What type of grip do you have?

I know how you feel. I've struggled to get used to the shape for a long time. I just decided to bring my G400s to my office to use as a work mouse. It's taken a couple weeks, but I'm starting to dig it.

Between the fingertip and palm grip I would say ( a bit more forward from fingertip, and a bit more back from palm)
