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
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 bought this because I am getting "mouse shoulder" and thought it would help. As soon as I started to use it, I realized that the vertical position is much more arm and shoulder-friendly. Nonetheless, I have had some troubles getting used to verticality, and I seem to be going back and forth between old mouse and new mouse.
It does make a difference. Strange, sticky faux chrome thumb grip is only bad feature

Summary: I have used the v3, but finally needed a replacement. The v3 stopped working. I was so hooked I had to get a new one before my replacement, under warranty arrived. I have had wrist fractures and never knew my other "ergonomic" mice were not helping. A colleague recommended the Evoluent and I was surprised how my wrist felt better after a long day of graphics and CAD work. The v4 has extra buttons. I like the easy reach buttons above and below the thumb.
Summary: Might be slightly large for my hand. I believe there is a smaller verison of this mouse too. The accuracy will never be quite as good as a wired mouse so if you're doing work in photoshop, etc. I'd go wired.
Excerpt: I've been using this verticle mouse since 2002! I have mild carpel tunnel syndrome that affects the wrist! It can be painful but that pain and discomfort has been drastically reduced since using the Verticle Mouse! It may feel a little 'unnatural' at first but once you get used to it you won't want to go back to the 'flat' mouse! If you don't have any wrist problems, now is the best time to get a Verticle Mouse as a preventative measure!
Pros: Accurate Tracking, Comfortable Design, Fast Response, Glides Smoothly
It's starting to misbehave but I've used it constantly for almost 2 years

Summary: I really like this mouse. It fits my hand well and is highly functional. However, it's now starting to behave inconsistently. I can't get it to select a space between words in any word processing application, even this text box. It will select either the whole word or the entire paragraph. It is like the top button is performing a double click even though it's set for left clicking. It started out misbehaving infrequently and now it's all the time.
Summary: This was recommended as an ergonomic mouse. I originally held off purchasing this because of the price and it's rarity (I could not see one of these in any store, let alone NCIX own store). I'm glad I brought it. It's very comfortable and easy to use. Although it took me a few days to get used to after using a regular mouse. Even so, I still knock the mouse over as my instinct is still to grab it as a regular mouse.
Pros: Comfortable grip
Cons: Size/fit for smaller hands, Heat generated by mousr
Summary: This worked out good for me keeping it vertical. One problem for me (minus one star) is that I have problems when I need to grab the mouse and move it. For example, typing on the keyboard and then coming back to the mouse. Inevitable I have to grab it and move the mouse and there isn't a good way to grab the mouse w/o hitting one of the buttons (e.g lower right button). They should have accounted for this in the design.
