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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
