Excerpt: I had a ergonomic microsoft mouse before and it was an easy transition to use this mouse. I use this mouse about 8 hours a day, 5 days a week as I work as a programmer.
It is very easy to setup and use. I love the extra buttons which I use for copy and paste functions.
Summary: I purchased this because my wrist was hurting and using this I have done a lot better. So no complaints on the ergonomic front. The reason this is not five stars is that the scrolling mechanism slowly degraded over time.
Summary: While this is a great improvement over a basic mouse and would be good for people who have no elbow support while using the computer it is not for me as my desk is U shaped and my arms are supported to take pressure off my shoulders.
Pros: Great improvement over basic mouse, Light touch buttons
Cons: Not a improvement over a gaming mouse, 90 degree rotation of muscular control of mouse movements
Summary: This is a great mouse. The "handshake" position is much more comfortable over long periods than the palm-down position -- at least for me. Unfortunately, as of July 02, 2013, there are no Windows 8 drivers available. Do not install the existing Evoluent drivers under Windows 8.
Summary: I had to return mine. I have huge, plane-swatting hands, and this mouse definitely isn't designed for me. If you have average-sized hands, it seems like it would be ideal for you. Sadly, ergonomic computer equipment is a dying breed, so I have no idea what else I'll try at this point.
It is ..... better than a typical flat mouse but.....

Summary: The Evoluent is much better than a typical flat mouse but A) wish it were a tad bigger for my hand. B) Wish it was tilted a bit more to the left. I find I still ungrasp the mouse and tilt my resting hand further to the left (ie, more like a true left handed hand shake would be if we shook with the...
Summary: UPDATE, 6/12/2013: I've kept the mouse for months now, using it every day. I'm better at navigating it, but it still takes more care and concentration than a regular mouse to avoid moving things by mistake or to the wrong folder.
Summary: I am on the computer all day for work and use the mouse extensively. I tried this mouse because of the pain I was getting in my hand/wrist. According to the information this mouse is for hands with a measurement of 7" or more between the tip of the middle finger and the first crease of the wrist.
