If you are on mac and your daw supports the track pad, get a track pad its so easy to work with and your hand will love it too.
"The net result is that if something is pondered over and farted around with to the extent that it is capable of being done now, digitally in particular, the music becomes clinicized beyond belief." Glyn Johns

The older wired ones, which are unfortunately no longer made, are amazing quality. Mine from 2000 is still going strong. I also switched to the 570 in 2011 just for the flashiness of having it wireless. However, I am now on my second one, as the switches on the first one died after a few years, and if you hunt about you'll see it's a common complaint. I bought another a couple of years ago which is still working, but I also hunted down better quality contact switches and installed those. Don't have all the info or part numbers to hand, but it's all out there if you do a search. Ergonomically, I think I actually prefer the larger size of the older ones, keep meaning to switch back to it, but never get around to fishing it out of the back of the mic locker.
