Wrist pain? This will change your computing experience.
7 December 2013
Summary: Most reviews here are spot on, but I'm now so adjusted to using one of these for 7 years that using a normal mouse feels wrong. The wrist pain it helped cure on the first week of use still has not returned after all these years.
Summary: I really really wish they'd keep this mouse going - the physical design really did turn my oncoming carpal tunnel around, and once I got used to the large size, I find that any other mouse feels small and "just not right" when I use them.
Pros: Exactly the correct angle (for my hand) that it relieved the pain from tendonitis/developing carpal tunnel For those with large hands, this mouse actually fits your hand 5 programmable buttons - really good for gaming Compatible with many standard MS mouse/keyboard dongles - I have mine working w...
Cons: For those with small hands, may be too big (feels to SOME like they're using a softball for a mouse Dongle for connecting to computer is rather large Range/signal is somewhat limited (items on desk between mouse and receiver can cause interference Mouse wheel doesn't give feedback when scrolling ...
Summary: There are lots of nice features about this mouse - it's shape, the feel of the buttons, the size and weight. But from a practical, usage perspective, it failed in one important area - it is very uncomforatble to use. If used in the proper hand position - i.e.
Not magical but WAY better than anythinig else I've used

Summary: To say that this mouse is revolutionary would be somewhat of a lie, but it is hard not to notice that there are so few mice of this shape out there. After years of using a computer with a regular mouse I couldn't take it anymore and went shopping.
Summary: I bought this thinking it would be a more ergonomic mouse to use with my laptop and carry around (I didn't care about the large size). I didn't even use it because it comes with a huge corded USB dongle for communication - not a tiny one like most wireless mice these days.
Summary: Although this mouse isn't the top of the line gaming mouse, or the highest dpi mouse, or what have you. This is the best mouse I've ever owned. I'm a power user, I play MMO's, FPS's, and RTS's, and this mouse has done the job for everything.
Summary: Pro: comfortable grip, good wrist position, lightweight. Con: extremely short range! Literally, if more than 5 inches away from the receiver, the mouse pointer movement often becomes erratic and jerky, 2 feet away -- loses the signal completely.
Summary: Problems 1 and 2 combine to make the wheel unusable. Once the wheel stiffens up and the springs wear out it is nearly impossible to roll the mouse wheel without triggering the middle click button. I believe the erratic scrolling behavior can be attributed to the wheel getting slightly out of time.
Pros: I actually liked the shape and feel in my hand.
Cons: The wheel has design flaws that show up after extended use. There are three problems with the wheel design. 1.) The springs aren't durable and after the have been used extensively they get mushy. 2.) The wheel roller gets stiff after prolonged use. This is probably due to dust or the lubricant di...
Summary: The long story short: This mouse had a serious problem with the mouse pointer. When I moved my hand to the right to move the pointer from the left side of the screen to the right, instead of traveling horizontally, it would go down hill at a 45 degree angle.
Summary: The initial feel of the mouse is great. It fits the natural tilt and shape of your hand perfectly. It looks really odd, but I did not care about that. Over all a nice mouse, but a number of issues that should have been resolved for a mouse in this price range.
