    Bottom Line: The PistolMouse is not a perfect replacement for the mouse; however, if the benefits are indeed real, then itís worth every penny.

    Installation and Usage

    Installing the PistolMouse was a breeze. Simply plug it into an available USB port and the device is recognized as a standard mouse. The configuration of the buttons and scroll wheel are accomplished as if configuring a regular three (3) button mouse. The PistolMouse shares the same configuration as your regular mouse which may lead to some inconveniences along the way. In some games it is better to have your trigger set as the right mouse button but this would cause your regular mouse to switch buttons. The software from my current mouse detected the PistolMouse as a standard three (3) button mouse but refused to switch the right and left buttons. After uninstalling the software, the buttons switched without a problem.

    With the optical sensor placed towards the front of the base, turning left and right is accomplished by twisting your wrist in the appropriate direction. This takes a bit of getting used to when compared to the usual sliding left and right of a mouse. Also, thanks to the sensor being placed so far in front of your wrists, smaller movements are required to make 180 degree turns.

    The use of an 800dpi sensor ensures your courser wonít skip a beat when you make any rapid moments and allows for tracking that is comparable to some higher end mice.

    For some, the secondary grip trigger may be a bit hard to press and the travel of the primary trigger may be a bit long. I am more forgiving of these minor annoyances since I feel the benefit to my wrist outweighs them. Unfortunately, I wonít be able to tell you if there is an actual medical benefit but after several hours of gaming I know there is no pain here.
