Would be great if they'd make a model for those with larger hands, cause it's a cool concept for a mouse imo.

Edit: I should add that I had the regular Naga (I don't like wireless mice), but I doubt they are a different size.
OK, thanks. Hm, that's a pity; my hands aren't exactly what you'd call small...

I like the idea of the G700, but after reading about the wireless connectivity issues it seem(s)(ed) to have... I'm not sure I want to risk it. But if the Naga is that small... bah.

If it helps, I'm 6'1" and I believe I have pretty average sized hands for my height. For instance, the MS Intellimouse Explorer 3.0 and the Razer DeathAdder fit my hand quite well. Hopefully that will give you some reference for size.
I really don't understand why they made it that size. If they would have built the mouse around the size of the DeathAdder and made the number 5 button at the location of the forward thumb button it would have worked quite well I think.

I thoroughly checked every mice you all suggested: it seems like the one that fits my needs the most is Steelseries Xai (I also love it's very simple design), and most probably will go for it.
Thanks a lot everyone for helping

It's a good mouse, if your hand is ever changing size or shape

I have the G700
So if you have any G700 questions, just ask

sure tnx, I am interested in this: can you store macros other than just profiles?

this is important because I tend to switch PCs often, that's why internal memory is mandatory...
