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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

A different mouse, but not that accurate

C. M. Hicks, Amazon
6 January 2014
  • Summary: I accept the fact that this mouse keeps my hand and wrist in a more natural position, and will probably help avoid rsi. And the mouse seems well made and sturdy, and worked perfectly as soon as I plugged it in. But there are a couple of buts..... 1.

A huge adjustment

Amazon Customer, Amazon
25 March 2011
  • Summary: Positives: - Plug and play? Yes indeed. No problems here running with Windows 7 64-bit. - Ergonomic? Yes. Rotating my forearm to the neutral position made a big difference in my mouse discomfort. Negatives: - No mouse wheel. Come on, this isn't a new invention! I mean really? Really!?

A great product at a good price. Worth buying!

  • Excerpt: I use my mouse a lot and I was starting to get pains in my wrist and forearm. A friend of mine suggested a trackerball type mouse which I used for about three months, but it didn't solve the problem.
  • Pros: Easy to use and it really reduces muscle strain
  • Cons: Scrolling button seems to be a little temperamental
