Reviews and Problems with Evoluent Vertical Optical Mouse 3
Showing 1-10 of 16
Great, for a few months
22 April 2014
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.
Good mouse but over priced with very average build quality.

Summary: Ok, here's what you need to know. Its precise and is great for gaming and multimedia programs (3d/Photoshop etc) Drivers are OK for me (win7 64). Once you get used to it it's quite nice to use but a little tricky to pick up even after a long time using it. The large middle mouse button is the BEST feature for me as I am a 3D artist that uses programs that use the middle mouse button ALL the time. Build quality does NOT represent a £90 product!!!
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. To start with, the mouse comes with an installation CD that, in year 2012, only works for XP and Vista (32 bit).
Summary: I bought this for home after trying one at work to help pain in my right hand and wrist from using a traditional mouse. It is expensive - but feels really comfortable to use and glides over the desk. To use it the hand and arm are in a totally different position so it really helps. It arrived speedily...what more can you ask.
Summary: Evoluent Right Handed Vertical Mouse 4 Ergonomic Mouse This mouse does look nice and the position it puts you wrist/hand in is very comfortable, but due to the size of my hands it is not for me, I do have large hands, 220mm from tip of index finger to first crease in wrist and 110mm across the palm at the knuckle joints. This causes my pinky(little) finger to rest/drag on the mouse mat rather than rest on the ledge of the mouse.
Summary: Took me a while to get used to this mouse. Not bad although I don't think it is that much better than a regular mouse. If you are having issues with your wrist try the mouse that looks like a joystick. That thing is great. The chrome on the thumb rest has started peeling off not that long after purchase (3 months) but this isn't a major issue. Not sure this is worth the price tag.
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 mouse. My advice would be not to ditch it completely, but rather alternate with a regular mouse.
Summary: Habe mir die Maus gekauft, weil ich Schmerzen in den Ellenbogengelenken bekommen habe. Nach längerer Recherche ist nur noch diese Maus als Ergo-Maus übrig geblieben. Meiner subjektiven Meinung nach tut sie auch wirklich gut. Nach einiger Eingewöhnung wegen der ungewohnten Haltung empfand ich die Handhaltung als entspannend. Die Maus ist gut verarbeitet, die Tastendruckpunkte sind gut und genau, kein Plastik knarrt.
Summary: Ich habe noch das ältere Modell dieser Maus ausprobiert. Die Vorstellung, dass das neue Modell mit seinem blinkenden Logo auf meinem Schreibtisch um Aufmerksamkeit buhlt, fand ich eher abschreckend. Leider hat die Maus bei mir nur zu einer Verlagerung der körperlichen Symptome vom Unterarm zur Schulter geführt. Ich vermute, dass meine Hand zu schmal für diese Maus ist, so dass ich sie jeweils anheben und in der Luft halten musste, um an die Tasten zu kommen.
