difficult to give it more than 3 stars...

Emmster, Amazon
30 May 2012
  • Summary: Because, in the final analysis, it didn't work for me; I traded wrist pain, which was alleviated by the upright positioning, for pain in the knuckles, caused by the size of the mouse and trying to grip it for long periods. It really is quite a large mouse, and I say that as a strapping six footer.

Comfortable but flawed

  • Summary: I recently bought one of these, as I have developed quite severe RSI in my right hand. Unfortunately after using it for about a week I find that it is just as bad as most other mice. Having your hand at a more natural angle is certainly better for the pains in my forearm.

good design

  • Summary: this is a good preventative measure for sufferers of RSI etc. the position is comfortable and the buttons have a lighter touch than my old mouse. one complaint- the scroll wheel is less sensitive, one roll of the wheel from front to back is about 4 increments, on my old mouse (£4.50 from asda) there...

Comfortable & ergonomic, but poor scroll wheel

D. Parsons, Amazon
14 July 2010
  • Summary: I really wanted this Evoluent Vertical Mouse 3 to be the mouse for me, but I had to return it. The tracking on the scroll wheel was terrible when scrolling down slowly while reading text, or when zooming in CAD applications. The scroll wheel has 'detents' like most modern mice, i.e.

Great at first, but then new pains may appear

Aledwige, Amazon
7 May 2010
  • Summary: Once you get used to it, it is a very good mouse as the position it puts your arm/wrist in feels quite natural. However, I found that after a few months of use, this position does create new pains, especially linked to the ring and little fingers that are somehow under more stress with the vertical...

Great mouse, if you can get a good one

L. Roy, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought one of these after developing a dull ache in my mousing arm. It's definitely more comfortable to use for prolonged periods than a regular mouse and cured the pain I had in my arm.

Good ergonomics, questionable quality

K. Budzynski, Amazon
30 July 2007
  • Summary: I ordered this one for my work as using regular mouse for 8 hours a day can be painful. As much as I love upright design and relaxed position of my arm while using it, I must complain about build quality.

Great, for a few months

makar, Amazon
30 July 2007
  • Summary: I have purchased two of these and in both cases, after a few months (about 10) they have both started to just cut out periodically. Very nice to use, but they do have a short life-span it would seem.

  • Summary: The mouse itself is great. The fact that I have had to order a replacement 17 months after got the first one is why I've had to put less stars

Very comfortable - only basic functionality in Win7 64 :-(

Otilia Otlacan, Amazon
29 July 2007
  • Summary: I would've given this mouse 10 stars for how comfortable it is on my poor wrist, however, be aware that it has a major downside: there are no solutions to fully customize its 5 buttons (as there should be!) if you're running Windows 7 64 bit. I haven't tried any other OS.
