Summary: -The only con that i have is the seller. When i made the purchase, it gave to me a wrong tracking number, when i call customer support at newegg.ca they tried everything to contact the seller for a response on that. Later days, i received the mouse at my door with a different number.
Pros: -Good hand size, not a grab n' go on the road. -Love the programmable buttons -I got use to it very quickly. -Tested in differents surfaces and work well on almost all
Perhaps a mouse pad will work but I'm a minimalist and if there are other devices that work better for my setup I'll stick with

Summary: Overall this just didn't work for me. The thumb placement was too high compared to other vertical mouses, which didn't allow my wrist to naturally rest on the desk. Perhaps a mouse pad will work but I'm a minimalist and if there are other devices that work better for my setup I'll stick with it. I didn't like how large and tall this mouse is.
Excerpt: I'm a video editor and on a computer all day. Over time, I developed tendonitis and needed to change my ergo setup. I got this mouse and found relief. Not 100% but certainly the right direction. Very comfortable device, very natural.
Summary: Had the third button go out after a month. I emailed Evoluent and they said the switch was a known issue. They had me break off the button and take a picture of it broken with the S/N on the bottom of the battery door showing. They then sent me a replacement. Been working fine since. Only issue I've had is the tracking started stuttering. I uninstalled/reinstalled drivers, reboots...nothing fixed it.
Summary: I'm still getting used to this mouse. I've been using a flat one for so long, I need to give this one time. I really like it though. I really like the 3rd button for the fingers section on the vertical. I work in CAD and set that button up to be F8. I also got the Kinesis Corporation KB800PB-US-20. I have broad shoulders and was having nerve pain down my left arm and some issues with my right hand. Using this with the keyboard has reduced those issues greatly.
Awesome! No pain, high quality great bonus features with software...

Summary: Fantastic mouse! After my hand started bugging me and gradually got more painful while using a Logitech M570 trackball mouse, which was a big improvement over a typical office mouse. First I bought a Handshoe mouse, but that still requires the hand to lay horizontally and isn't much different than a traditional mouse to me. Returned it for an Evoluent 4.
Summary: I have wrist pain. Even though I am seeing the doctor I wanted to give a try to this mouse. I regularly use a wireless HP mouse over a surface with a bit of a slope to reduce the tension on my wrist, that has helped a bit. I thought this mouse would help with the pain and I might be able to use on the same way I use the HP one.
As soon as I opened the box I was overjoyed to see ONE BATTERY

Summary: I ordered this mouse looking for something - anything - that would fix my wrist pain. Working on the computer for hours and hours a day, during really busy times of the year I would notice significant wrist pain that only increased every time of the year it returned and would take longer to go away. I immediately foresaw long term injuries that would prevent my from working at all and knew I needed to change something. This mouse immediately took away all the pain.
Summary: Because of carpal tunnel issues that have been causing a lot of pain over the past few months, I decided to give this mouse a shot after reading positive reviews and from the recommendation of a hand/physical therapist. Best $100 I ever spent. The relief of having an ergonomic split keyboard is nothing if you don't have a comfortable mouse to go with it. I was able to use this mouse while in a hand splint, and it was very easy and fast to get used to.
