User Review

ZombieApocalypse, Walmart
13 February 2010
  • Summary: Easy to use, easy to get used to. It keeps my wrist straight as I use it, which relieves carpal tunnel pain in my wrist. It is NOT a joystick, there is a laser light on the bottom, which means it still needs to be used on a flat surface.

3m Ergonomic Mouse

S.Sanborn, Rate it all!
28 May 2009
  • Summary: I actually sent mine back because it was too hard to get used to. Also, I would recommend the wired one as opposed to the wireless one, because you would have to always remember to charge the batteries or replace them. I think the product is good in general, but didn't work for me.

3m Ergonomic Mouse

SanDiegoPCMedi c, Rate it all!
9 April 2009
  • Summary: This 3M product is GREAT in concept. The handle is comfortable, the movement crisp, and the reality is - it virtually eliminated my wrist pain from using a mouse all day long. The only 2 problems are - 1. there's no "roller" wheel for scrolling up/down on web pages - a virtual necessity in today's web world. 2. the mouse button on top is built too weakly. I only had the product for a few weeks and I was very gentle with my clicking all day.

A Flaw Away From Perfection

J. Harber, Amazon
8 May 2008
  • Summary: Due to using the computer at work & at home, I developed a horrible case of wrist and finger pain. It got so bad, I literally could not use my old mouse. After reading reviews on Amazon, I dedided on the 3M mouse even though most people said it was cheaply made. Within a few days of using the mouse, my wrist & hand pain disappeared. Now one month later the mouse took a two foot fall from my keyboard tray to the floor and it snapped where the handle meets the base.

Comfortable, but not that user friendly

Peter Gallagher "Bernard", Amazon
8 March 2007
  • Summary: I purchased this 3M Ergonomic mouse and the Evoluent Vertical Mouse2 at the same time to compare. I really enjoyed the feel of the 3M mouse, but it is limited in what it can do. I need to scroll often with my kind of work. The 3M mouse does not have a scroll wheel it has a scroll button. When you push the scroll button, you then have to physically move the mouse up and down to scroll. The Evoluent Vertical Mouse2 is pretty comfortable.

Cheap plastic construction

John Fanning, Amazon

  • Summary: I had pretty bad hand pain from my microsoft wireless mouse. I bought three of these based on the reviews I read here. The day I started using it the pain disapeared, however I gave my teenage son one too and that is when the bad news arrived. Within a week he had snapped the mouse in two. I figured he was just being a teenager until a month later when i broke mine in half. I took the third one and guess what, same exact way the third one broke.

Needs help

Stinky McGee, Amazon
23 December 2005
  • Summary: It is made of cheap plastic and breaks easily. Still, when mine broke due to frequent traveling, I bought one again because it is an improvement over a regular mouse. It also has a problem with the click buttons... when you single click, about a quarter of a time thinks it is a double click.

From One Pain to Another

T. Wong, Amazon
10 May 2005
  • Summary: I have very mixed feelings about this mouse. I ordered it based on other recommendations to cure the pain in my wrist I was encountering from too many hours using a regular and marble mouse. I have to admit that to this end, this mouse has worked well for addressing the pain issue. But the new pain I now have is the way this mouse tracks. It is incredibly frustrating how poorly it tracks, and how it tends to jump around the screen for no apparent reason.

Comfortable mouse. However contrary to its description it DOES ...

Amazon Customer, Amazon
31 August 2014
  • Summary: Comfortable mouse. However contrary to its description it DOES NOT have a scroll button. Instead it relies on software supporting a middle mouse click while moving the mouse up and down to scroll. While most browsers do, many applications don't. It make using those applications cumbersome. Hence the 3 stars given for this product.
