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
10 December 2014
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.
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.
Summary: If you absolutely need an ergonomic mouse, this product is very usable. However, when I spend upwards of $80 on a mouse, I expect better quality tracking than you average $5, made in China, disposable piece of garbage.
Pros: This mouse is one of the few ergonomic 5 button mice with a scroll wheel. Well I guess its technically a 6 button mouse because the scroll wheel does not double as a middle mouse button. (Also an awesome feature)
Cons: This mouse has a serious tracking problem. Several times a day it starts to 'pull' all the way to the right edge of the screen. This continues until I move the mouse again. I suspect this issue is the result of poor quality firmware, possibly an overflow/underrun in the sensor data interpretation. Now before someone tries to spout some non-sense about the surface or other system related software bugs let me just say that I have tired this mouse with multiple pads and ...
Excerpt: I bought this mouse because of pain I was having in my wrist. I have the small version because I have very small hands. In fairness, the wrist pain has improved but because the mouse raises my hand up, part of my hand (near the wrist) drags on the mouse pad and is a little sore and red. I think you need a pad to support the arm when using this mouse. I am looking for a new mouse that isn't so high. Also the mouse is ugly and cheap looking.
Pros: This mouse is somewhat helpful for wrist aches, CTS. Laser movement is accurate. Many sub buttons can be used for macro assignments. Battery use is very good, like 5-6 months on one battery
Cons: Biggest complaint I have is the mouse wheel started to get flaky about 6 months into ownership. Scrolling down would occasionally go up instead of down. It's gotten progressively worse. I've made several attempts to contact the manufacturer for support and not received a single acknowledgement or proposed solution. I get other aches as a result of this mouse configuration, my thumb will be sore if I do a lot of precision pointing. Have to adjust your seat height (more...
Summary: I ordered this product because I have very large hands and get cramps "clinching" normal mice. This unit was not nearly large enough for my hands but what bothered me mostly was the quality of the product. I have been around/working with computers for over 30years and have had many many mice and know quality from junk. While this mouse was not bottom junk it was definitely on the cheap side.
Summary: I bought this mouse because I was having wrist pain / trouble and work on a computer all day. I was very impressed with the feel and the features until I noticed that it did not work on any surface other than a sheet of paper! I have tried it on my desktop (2 different desks), on my keyboard tray and on a couple different mousepads (including ones designed for laser / optical mice).
Summary: I wanted a good left handed mouse and this one is OK. Not great. Just OK. It feels a little cheap in the hand. The biggest fail is there are no drivers for MAC OS X. The manufacturers web site suggests you go to another site to purchase ($20.00) software that is not compatible with OS X Lion. So what I now own is just an overpriced basic mouse. If your a lefty and a Mac user there are better choices.
Summary: I purchased this to help with the pain in my arm I get from using a mouse during the day. My arm hurt worse in some spots than with a regular mouse. I have small hands and it may have been just too big for my hand. It was also very slow to move and created jumpy mouse movements on the screen. I'm returning it.
Summary: I bought one of these to replace the v1.0 Evoluent Vertical mouse that I had been using for several years. The original mouse had quickly eliminated all the pain in my wrist, and I liked its driver – especially the ability to program a third mouse button. The reason I bought a new one was because Evoluent did not provide a Windows 7 driver for its original mouse. The default driver that Windows assigns gives me just two mouse buttons and no programmability.
