Wrist a lot better but not well made

AGuyinBend, Amazon
4 February 2014
  • 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

No Windows 8 drivers as of July 2, 2013

McLovin, Amazon
2 July 2013
  • 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.

Not for big hands

Bevans, Amazon
18 May 2013
  • 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.....

BobsBlitz "Bob's Blitz", Amazon
18 April 2013
  • 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...

Jumpy, but NOT because of drivers

Acontius "Acontius", Amazon
25 February 2013
  • 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.

too expensive

  • Summary: I can't see why a mouse 'turned sideways' costs so much. That's really about all I can say and that's it.

Not for larger hands!!

Joe Mandia, Amazon
30 January 2013
  • 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.

Great Mouse; Poor Connectivity

Kindle Customer, Amazon
26 December 2012
  • Summary: I have used the vertical mouse for the last several weeks. It has really saved my wrist and hand and I no longer experience pain while at work. The mouse design is solid and all the programmable buttons help with repetitive tasks.

  • Summary: I've purchased four of these mice just over a year ago for my brother and I to use at work and home. We love them and don't like using other types of mice, but we have noticed a couple of flaws to them: 1) The rubberized finish on the palm grip section will wear off where your hand contacts it,...
  • Pros: >Vertical grip very ergonomic, reduces strain due to extended mouse use, >Custom button mapping can be tied to specific programs, >Very light, glides effortlessly, >On the fly sensitivity adjustment is useful, >2 year warranty useful, especially since the cons will show up after about a year.
  • Cons: >Expensive, >Rubberized finish deteriorates and comes off, particularly if your hands sweat while using it., >No strain relief on the cord, so it will break if you're not careful to avoid it bending at extreme angles., >Buttons may wear out and the clicks won't register as cleanly as they should....
