difficult to give it more than 3 stars...

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.
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.
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...
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.

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

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.
