Fragile and painful on mac

msd in MA, Amazon
14 December 2006
  • Summary: My desk is 2.6 feet from the floor. This fell off one time and the top began swiveling. It feel off a second time and the top broke off. It is held on by two tiny tabs. Also, though it helped my carpal tunnel, on the mac there is no easy way to redefine the north south access to something different which led to my shoulder getting out of positon and 4 weeks of chiropractic visits to correct the pain. Thanks, but not thanks.

Screws up your Thumb - get the "Ergonomic Quill Mouse" instead!

J.B., Amazon
26 October 2006
  • Summary: I developed tendinitis on my right wrist due to computer mouse problems, and decided to buy this product. This mouse helped a bit with my wrist tendinitis, but GAVE ME PROBLEMS WITH MY THUMB!! That part of my right hand where the thumb meets the wrist ached so much that I had to quit using this mouse. The pain disappeared soon thereafter. I now use the "Ergonomic Quill Mouse", and it works like magic!

Beware of worsening problems

Adam Safran, Amazon
5 June 2006
  • Summary: Though it takes a little getting used to, once you adapt to this mouse it really is indispensible. After about two years of too much mousing at too many poorly adjusted tables, I had developed fairly regular pain in my right hand and wrist, so much so that I started favoring my left hand for carrying objects.

Poor durability

Dan Armstrong "Software Engineer", Amazon
20 March 2006
  • Summary: I liked this product, but the top thumb button stopped working within 3 months. It will start double-clicking with increasing frequency anytime you single-click until you get fed up with it. And it isn't un uncommon problem. I purchased this mouse on recommendation from a fellow co-worker who had just purchased it and told me that it helped keep his wrists relaxed.

14 December 2012
  • Summary: Probably my fault for not reading the spec properly, but this mouse does not have a mouse wheel or a button that can do the same (it has a scroll button but that doe snot work everywhere a wheel works).

Don't Buy

Fred, Amazon
8 May 2011
  • Summary: Purchased this item as I was suffering from RSI using a conventional mouse. Construction is very cheap. Most irritating mouse I have had. The cursor constantly jumps to one of the corners, cursor also moves slowly and erratically. I would not recommend this item.

I. Dorey, Amazon
6 June 2009
  • Summary: Not as great as its made out to be - It works (And under Linux BTW), but the pain this thing caused in my shoulders was worse than the pain in my wrists and hands to start with. I persevered but I could never get to grips with it - There is a tendency to rest the weight of the hand on the body of the mouse, which is probably right judging by its design, but this makes the mouse very heavy to move with your shoulder, OR, you need to slightly release the weight of your...
