I'm a Razer Naga convert. Any scheme that binds the quickbar buttons to physical keys has the advantage of improved reaction time compared to clicking the quickbar buttons with the mouse cursor; putting the quickbar buttons where your right hand can operate them has the additional advantage of letting your left hand move the character while your right hand executes button combos, whether your class has an ability rotation or a priority system.

This is how the designers of console controllers have done it for years. The left hand corresponds with the side of the brain that handles spacial awareness, and the right hand is associated with the side of the brain that handles logic. Plus, there are studies that suggest an advantage in learning when motor memory is brought into the process, whether you have physical buttons to control your class abilities or are learning to spell by learning to type.

Also, gaming mice look snazzy.
