Summary: After 2 weeks use I started to feel intense pain in my wrist. I think the problem is that the mouse is too small for my hand so my wrist ends up being twisted in order for my fingers to be in the right place. I could not find any information on sizing for this product, I see there is a Small product option, but the size of this standard item is too small for my hand. In my opinion this mouse is at least 1 inch too small for my hand.
Summary: Of course it is fabulous ergonomics, you wonder why nobody thought about this earlier. Then, it stopped working after 9 months. OK, I travel with it, so it does not stay on the desktop. But I store it carefully when I travel. So there is a problem, not very solid... and for that price: just get one of the cheaper versions.
Summary: My vertical mouse 3 was becoming a bit worn after years of use, so thought I would upgrade to V4, but sadly it's a downgrade. - You are now forced to use the Evoluent drivers, otherwise the actions of buttons 2 to 6 are mixed up. The buttons could have easily been wired to work 'out the box' like V3, so apart from laziness I am puzzled as to why did this. This is even more of a pain if you don't use Windows. - The blue L.E.D.
