What's the best alternative to keyboard and mouse?

The only real alternative to mouse and keyboard is another mouse and keyboard.

Do you guys have any suggestions for a mouse with a lot of keys?


Logitech G600. If you can use a controller, then what you linked earlier should work decently for movement. Logitech also makes a similar product. As for your question about using it, the thumbstick functions exactly like the left thumbstick on a controller, though it may only be quad directional rather than true analog. It's been awhile since I had one.


The thumbstick on the Nostromo is literally just a d-pad with a circle-thing on top of it. Also, it feels weird.

The Orbweaver, Tartarus, and Orbweaver Stealth are all newer versions that actually have an analog thumbstick, among other improvements.

That Madcatz one is so weird looking. Other than that, the Naga seems to have a quality issue and apparently the Logitech one is slow, but otherwise the Logitech G600 there seems pretty awesome.

On the MMO7 I'd just be worried about getting lost. It looks so alien. Also as far as those left-handed gamepads, I might actually be able to use them...so far since my injury I've used both an Xbox 360 controller and 3DSXL with Dreamgear case for extended periods of time and been alright, so maybe one of those would work along with a nice mouse. That would be expensive, but it could work...

^Yeah the mmo7 is pretty complicated but I liked the differing button layout versus the plain grid of the others. That little nub makes for a great WASD setup as its a 5 way switch. All the other buttons are fairly logical once you get used to them (like any peripheral really).

I understand not liking the form factor but I loved it :P Using a g500 plain jane mouse now though.

Peripherals are about as personal preference as any part can get. Go with your gut and get something YOU like.

Is there any store that sells these so I can see what they feel like before getting one?

Where did you read that the g600 was slow and in what manner is that referring to?

Micro Center or Best Buy, maybe?

Best Buy would be a good bet for the Razer products as that is where I first saw the Nostromo, but get one of the newer ones, not the Nostromo itself.
