  • Summary: i picked this item up, still needing two more surgeries in my wrists, and boy oh howdy am i glad i did. it took a little time to adjust to its unique style/design, but i am glad i took the option because i am loving it. it could a little less expensive but it will do fine for my needs. the scroll feature allows for a nav.

Excellant for those with hand problems

FtcJr, Bestbuy
28 July 2014
  • Summary: This is not a joystick, the upright is fixed to the mouse and does not move. Your right hand grasps the handle and moves the mouse and handle as one...
  • Pros: Eliminates abnormal hand motions
  • Cons: Moves the mouse in less than precise motions, need to use a regular mouse for fine work such as drawing

Perfect Ergonomic Mouse

Raphael R., Newegg
19 May 2013
  • Summary: There's always an adjustment period for using any good ergonomic mouse. If there wasn't then I would assume the mouse would lead to a similar stress on hand/finger/wrist.
  • Pros: Had one of these or like for more than 5 years and can't do without. Once you get over the first month of use, there's no problem using it over a regular mouse. Cord is nice a long (longer than any I've seen). Never had connectivity or other problems. Exactly what my wrist needed to alleviate repetitive stress due to my constant use.
  • Cons: None really

Second one, NO GOOD--STAY AWAY

Justin B., Newegg
24 April 2013
  • Summary: STAY AWAY!!!!!!!! 3M used to make great products but their products are now the same old CHEAP CHINESE GARBAGE!!!!!!! 3M customer service has been great and offered replacements, but, I am tired of dealing with faulty products. I will be sent another new replacement for the 3rd time and it will quickly be FOR SALE.
  • Pros: Comfortable
  • Cons: Second unit I received directly from 3M and it was not working. The left click on the mouse was sticking badly and was just as glitchy as the first unit.

Nice When it Works

Justin B., Newegg
4 April 2013
  • Summary: Nice concept but POOR implementation. All I want it to do is WORK, but I do not know what else to try, therefore I say: STAY AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Pros: I like the design and it makes it MUCH nicer to hold the mouse all day. Helps decrease any discomfort and works different muscles.
  • Cons: VERY GLITCHY. It seems like the receiver and mouse loose contact for short periods. I have tried updates and everything to no avail. Pretty sure I will be returning this SOON.

  • Summary: I have been using this 3M ergonomic mouse for past 3 weeks now and I am pretty impressed that the pain in my arm and wrist that has been there since 6 mos because of herniated disc in my neck has almost gone..I would have rated this mouse 5 if it also have a easy way of scrolling the page up and down like a regular mouse.

Most Comfortable Mouse Ever

Michael C., Newegg
27 September 2012
  • Summary: Unless your palm is significantly wider than 3.5" I recommend the Small size. The 550 has a better surface and optical sensor than the 500, but the batteries need to replaced from time to time.
  • Pros: Much more comfortable than standard mouse designs. Virtually eliminates hand strain. Rubberized surface feels good and does not collect too much dirt. Includes 3 mouse buttons. Wireless removes annoying cables.
  • Cons: My hand is 3.5" across the palm and the Large size is way too big for me. The wireless signal is not that strong, so it helps to be near the receiver. The batteries add weight.

Most Comfortable Mouse Ever

Michael C., Newegg
27 September 2012
  • Summary: I wish there were one size smaller. The 550 has a better surface and optical sensor than the 500, but the batteries need to replaced from time to time.
  • Pros: Much more comfortable than standard mouse designs. Virtually eliminates hand strain. Rubberized surface feels good and does not collect too much dirt. Includes 3 mouse buttons. Wireless removes annoying cables.
  • Cons: My hand is 3.5" across the palm and the Small size is still a bit too tall vertically for me. The wireless signal is not that strong, so it helps to be near the receiver. The batteries add weight.

Disappointed

Daybird, Office Depot
16 August 2012
  • Excerpt: I was excited to find a 'joystick' mouse, to relieve my clicking-finger stress-even such a tiny movement repeated all day causes stress up to my shoulder. I hoped holding my hand in one place and moving it like a joystick would be different, but that's not how it works. It's still moving a mouse around on the desk, your hand is simply in a fist rather than laying flat.
  • Cons: uncomfortable to use
