I've got the naga and the steelseries mouse. the steelseries mouse is squeaky and feels like a cheap piece of junk :P the naga is a bit intimidating at first, but once you get used to it, it works wonders. it's made healing a lot easier for me. i have issues holding modifier key with my left hand and at the same time stretching to hit 1-whatever. that's not how you're taught to touch type :P im more confused by the people who use wasd to move around, as well as using ctrl and alt as modifiers. when you learned to type and became used to typing, how often did you actually the ctrl and alt keys. shift, i can see, but ctrl and alt? and you purposely shifted your hand to the left to use wasd, instead of esdf, where your hands rest naturally as a touch typist. learning to use the naga is a hell of a lot easier than when you taught yourself to use wasd and ctrl/alt as modifiers. you have to shift your left hand back and forth if you chat or type any / commands while fighting/moving. what a waste of energy :P

I don't know about you, but working on PCs doing word processing, spreadsheet entries, code writing, and data mining I tend to use the Alt, Ctrl, and Shift keys a lot. I don't really see how having to train your muscle memory to read 10-key sideways is any more difficult than remembering which modifier key to press. One can't honestly be doing all that much WASD moving when you're healing that you can't spare a pinky to hit one of these nicely spaced together keys (esp since most players seem to bind non-instants to modifiers).
