Summary: I like it very much. However, I would have given it a higher rating if I had not had problems with the first one I bought. It stopped working completely and I had to go back to using a regular mouse until the second one arrived. I need this because I have RSI.
Summary: This is the second Evoluent mouse I`ve purchased. Used one for a couple months at work and then bought the second one for home. After a few years of pain in my right wrist finally this mouse does the job. It is pretty good for everyday use and keeps the arm in a relaxed position - much less stress and strain than other mice I`ve tried - Intellimouse 3.0, Logitech MX-1100.
Summary: Having developed a problem with my right hand, it was becoming painful using my normal mouse. Remembering seeing someone using a different mouse some time ago, I researched the subject and discovered the vertical mouse. Not being able to find one locally to try, I took a chance and ordered the Evoluent. It has proved a very good buy indeed. My only criticism is when moving the mouse it is very easy to press the right bottom button.
Summary: I've had a v3 for quite a few years now for at work and decided that I wanted one for home too so I decided to buy a second. Now the first one I have to say is working perfectly despite the fact that the little slider pads underneath have completely worn off due to wear (I use it over 8 hours a day). But it works fine and I can't live without it!
Summary: The Evoluent vertical mouse is better than the competition, if rather expensive. I use two mice, left and right handed, and have replaced both with Evoluent mice - recommended if working long hours, to allow each hand to rest. They are comfortable for extended use, providing a good hand position. Including a hardware button to change mouse sensitivity is handy, and this works independently in the case of two mice, so one can be used for more precision if required.
Great Ergonomics. Non-existant support. Poor driver.

Summary: As a vertical comfort mouse, this is brilliant. With no arm twisting required to use the mouse, it is surprising how relaxing it is to use. The only down side is Evoluent themselves: Their driver, which is required to use to lower left button, is dismal. The "middle button" functionality is broken and after a few sleep/refresh cycles, random button presses stop working. Evoluent do not respond to emails.
Summary: Bought this on advice from my osteopath and have not been disappointed. Very comfortable to use. Worked directly with my IMAC although not possible to programme the buttons differently unless you download additional shareware. Mouse took a day or two to get used to but is very comfortable and certainly provides a better hand position.
Summary: I have used this mouse for one month now. It's a good mouse, but it takes more time than just one month to be able to use this as well as a regular one. Initially it's bit odd to use, but not a problem as this is still a mouse. Regular mouses cause wrist pains for me... with this that pain is gone, but a curious sensation still persists when using this mouse. Also the mouse is not a gaming/precision mouse, accuracy between this and a gaming mouse just isn't the same.
