Reliable and Ergonomic

Weston M., Newegg
27 July 2015
  • Summary: I would buy this again.
  • Pros: I've owned this for 6 years and it finally wore out. The silicon feet are worn off and the button sometimes double clicks when I only want to single click. I am very happy to get 6 years of life out of this mouse which I use every day. This is also a very ergonomic mouse, requiring far less energ...
  • Cons: Does not have a DPI switch like some of the other ergonomic mouse products (e.g. Anker vertical mouse).

Good ergo and indestructible

Jennifer L., Newegg
1 September 2012
  • Summary: Well worth the cost, but if you can try it first you should.
  • Pros: I bought this mouse a little over a year ago after trying various other ergonomic options. This one has worked the best. I would not recommend it for anything click-intensive (gaming) because your thumb may not be able to handle it, but I work in front of a computer all day and it does great. Add...
  • Cons: - Takes a while to get used to - Doesn't fit on a keyboard tray

Works as described

Anonymous, Newegg
9 November 2009
  • Summary: Fine motor control is not as good relative to a standard mouse because you're using your arm instead of your wrist to move the device.
  • Pros: This device was successful at reducing pain in my hand due to RSI.
  • Cons: None

L=Large, S=Small

Randy C., Newegg
20 August 2009
  • Summary: Double check your hand size before ordering!
  • Pros: Seems to work as advertised
  • Cons: The description on NewEgg didn't explain that there is a difference between the two models listed. I should have figured it out, but must have been having a dim day. The "L" Model is large, for people with hands 3.5-4" across he nuckles. The "S" model is recommend for 2.57-3.5" hands. I mistakenl...

It's ok, but

Brian B., Newegg
26 March 2009
  • Summary: This thing could be great with a few changes. 1) driver. let it run simple w/o a driver, but give us a driver if we want to recalibrate the motion. 2) It wouldn't be easy to mfgr, but how about the stick tilt being a little adjustable.
  • Pros: Top 'rocker' button is quite nice. Comfortable hold.
  • Cons: No driver, which is great for simplicity, but you can't calibrate this thing. If I used it for a year perhaps I'd retrain myself, but next to a standard keyboard you either have to hold your elbow up to mouse straight, or mouse off to the right a bit. Using arm to move instead of wrist kills gran...

Obviously well designed

Laura M., Newegg
8 August 2008
  • Summary: Does what is it supposed to do, and well.
  • Pros: In my work I use a mouse all the time, and my hand was feeling very strained. This mouse has alleviated the strain I felt in my shoulder, wrist, and fingers. I am really happy with it. It's easy to get the hang of the new button orientation, it feels more natural than traditional torture devices,...
  • Cons: It is wired which gets in the way in my rather small workspace. It is also a bit pricey.

Great mouse.

Kenneth H., Newegg
28 April 2008
  • Summary: So far this mouse has "cured" my wrist/hand/finger issues while using a mouse. I have a number of wrist injuries which are aggravated by using a mouse ... giving me additional symptoms of carpel tunnel. Switching to this mouse has given me great relief.
  • Pros: No more wrist/hand/finger pain while using a mouse!
  • Cons: None

More comfortable than other mice

Anonymous, Newegg
11 April 2007
  • Summary: You move this mouse with the large muscles in your arm, not the smaller ones in your wrist. And you click with your strong thumb, not your weaker index finger. So it is a different feeling but much easier for extended use.
  • Pros: I switched to the 3M Ergonomic Mouse six years ago due to sore hands. I find it more comfortable than the trackballs and tablets I tried, and much better than a normal mouse. I can use the 3M mouse as much as I want, while a regular mouse makes my hand and wrist hurt. The current LED version is p...
  • Cons: It takes a couple minutes for a new user to get the hang of this mouse but everyone seems to get comfortable with it quickly. Relatively expensive and big. I wish 3M would sell them cheap and sell millions, the world would be a better place.

Good product but note that this version is very small

A. Thompson, Amazon
6 August 2014
  • Summary: Good product but note that this version is very small. My wife (about 5'6") has tiny hands compared to mine, but it was still too small for her. The "Large" version is cheaper, and hooray for amazon who exchanged and refunded the difference.

Worked well for 2 years...but

Muhammad I. Aziz, Amazon
2 July 2012
  • Summary: I'm a software developer. Ordinary mouse was causing increasing pain in my trigger finger. So much clicking. I'm using this mouse for 2 years. Index finger pain is gone. But for 6 month I'm suffering from wrist pain :) It is very easy to get used to.
