Perfect Ergonomic Mouse

Gilbert 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 rep...
  • Cons: None really

Second one, NO GOOD--STAY AWAY

Chris O., 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.
  • 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

Chris O., 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.

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.
  • Cons: uncomfortable to use

Great Mouse

Albert H., Newegg
12 August 2012
  • Pros: I've had a 3M Renasaince mouse for over 15 years, so I know what I'm talking about. I was having wrist pain problems, and this solved it. It's a little awkward at first, but once you get used to it, nothing else will do. Albert

I like this but...

Isaac B., Newegg
11 May 2012
  • Summary: I would be more than happy to recommend this mouse if they were to remove the big giant huge button all together that always gets in the way that you really don't need for anything anyway. Until then this mouse is a no go. Look for something else.
  • Pros: I like the perdendicular handle so that I don't hit the bottom of my wrist on the desk and irritate the carpel tunnel. This is a real big giant plus. I wish that more mouses were like this.
  • Cons: There is a big giant huge button going down the handle on the side of the mouse for scrolling. This button makes it very hard to grip this mouse. I frequently accidently push this button and then it messes up the screen. I can not grip the mouse right where I want to. I have to arch my fingers, h...
