Great mouse - but only lasted 2 years

Joe Copeland, Amazon
29 February 2012
  • Summary: I would highly recommend this mouse for anyone looking at an ergonomic alternative. Plug it in and works right away. Only downside is that after 2 years it started reading single clicks like double clicks. So I had to buy another one. So it may not last as long as a traditional mouse.

Not Perfect, But Works

Kablamo!, Amazon
7 August 2011
  • Summary: I've been using this mouse since March of 2009 -- more than two years, as of this review. Like other reviewers, I have found that it works as advertised, though there are a few flaws: + Buttons are cheap-feeling, as is overall construction. It doesn't look bad though.

  • Summary: Fast shipping and processing as usually, that's why I keep coming back.
  • Pros: Cold painful hand from repetitive stress injury is gone. Comfortable, easy to get used to (for me anyway).
  • Cons: I would have given this thing 5 eggs if it had a scroll wheel, some applications just don't work with just a third button, rather annoying really. Nothing to do with Newegg.

3m Ergonomic Mouse

Lena, Rate it all!
10 July 2009
  • Summary: Although I don't suffer from carpal tunnel, my elbow can sometimes get sore when I pull crazy hours at the computer since my job requires me to use the mouse in excess and mostly for fine operations. I got this mouse to try and alleviate that problem somewhat. In that, it's successful.

3m Ergonomic Mouse

bookjunkie8107, Rate it all!
6 July 2009
  • Summary: I purchased one for work and after a year or so I had to have one for home. I knit all the time and want to take care of my hands. Make sure you get the right size. I had the large one for a short time and the reach for the thumb was not natural.

3m Ergonomic Mouse

Mata, Rate it all!
8 June 2009
  • Summary: I love this product. I only have a couple of suggestions for 3M. I have such a hard time with a mouse. I have early CT in my wrist but my job is on the computer. I also have very small hands. I got the smallest one they offered though it is still a bit too big.

even more relief than other ergo mouses

Dawn Owar, Amazon
31 July 2008
  • Summary: I have a evoluent vertical mouse which I love because it gave me immediate relief from RSI symptoms. But I thought i'd give this a try after finding the scroll wheel causes me discomfort. This shape is weird and the scroll takes some getting used to but totally worth the trouble.

Works well for tennis elbow too

Paul S., Newegg
23 June 2008
  • Summary: Took a few days to get used to, accidentally dragged some folders to subfolders of other folders when reaching for and grasping the mouse. You need to have a light touch when you grab it (part of my issue).
  • Pros: Very comfortable hand/wrist position, thumb button takes very little effort to use, finger button is in just the right place for my hand. I have a problem with tennis elbow (caused by holding the mouse with a death grip while scrolling to read stuff). I tried a trackball, which helped but then ma...
  • Cons: No function for scroll wheel. The finger button acts like when you hold down the wheel on an MS mouse, and you can then scroll by moving the mouse - but you can't do the 3-line scroll that the wheel does. Also, on Google Maps, you have to use their zoom buttons, can't zoom by rolling the (nonexis...

  • Pros: I ordered this because I had wrist and thumb pains I'll go for the first impression, I've been using it for 2 hours only !! - Lite but seems strong - 3 buttons - Feels is definitely different, but not hard to get us to it - Do not have to move your forearm anymore but just a small more of your wr...
  • Cons: The Manual mentions it could take up to 3 weeks to get us to it.

  • Pros: Nice to have something to protect my hand. 3M products seem to be well developed.
  • Cons: It took about 2 weeks to get used to the methods to scroll, left, and right click. Now it does not require much thought.
