Mouse pointer problems

Tom Rogers, Amazon
25 June 2010
  • 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. I found that if I turned the mouse to a position that was not comfortable at all, it would travel horizontally. Microsoft support was pretty decent.

Microsoft 69K-00001 Natural Wireless Laser Mouse 6000

oldstudent3235, Rate it all!
30 May 2009
  • Summary: It took a little time to get used to the slant of the mouse, but I grew to like it, and any wrist and finger pain I suffered is a thing of the past. However, this mouse is terrible using it on any surface. The tracking is choppy, and very, very inexact for pointing and selecting - it is driving me nuts. I had always used Logitech mice, which scroll, point and track very smoothly. I am very sorry I purchased this mouse. I plan to replace it with a Logitech.

Not for small hands

Christine, Amazon
10 February 2009
  • Summary: I'm a petite woman with relatively small hands and this mouse was much, much too large for my hands. If I rest my hand on the side the way they instruct you to, I can't even come close to putting my index finger on the left button. The only way I could use it was to hold it the way they show in the "wrong way" drawing. It should specify not for small hands.

Nothing "natural" about it

Monika "Sci-Fi Enthusiast", Amazon
25 June 2008
  • Summary: I bought this mouse in a vain attempt to keep my wrist and thumb from hurting. While it might be designed for comfort, it isn't designed to actually track like every other mouse on the planet. You move the mouse horizontally to the left and the cursor goes and a pretty good angle up and to the left! There's no way this mouse can be used with any great efficiency in Photoshop or Illustrator or any other application that requires "normal" cursor movement.

Disappointed

Robert Winters "bobsbug", Amazon
15 December 2007
  • Summary: I had high hopes for this new natural mouse from Microsoft. I was using a Microsoft wireless laser 6000 mouse which frequently hurt my hand due to the uncomfortable angle forced on the wrist. Being an early adopter, I purchased this new "natural" mouse online before it was available in stores. Upon receiving, the first thing I was disapointed in was that it would not work with my existing wireless receiver from Microsoft.

My Left Foot ....

TB "TB - LANCS", Amazon
18 January 2009
  • Summary: Have to say, all the reviews looked good. "Comfortable, easy to use, cured my RSI/GBP/MFI" (you choose). The grapefruit description was good but as I don't have particularly small hands that didn't worry me, you guessed it I bought one. Well, I've used it for a week now and have to say I'm a little disappointed. It is tall for a mouse, 60mm and angled to the right causing me to look like Daniel Day Lewis in My Left Foot every time I use it. Heavy?

Too short

Paul Markham, Amazon
28 September 2008
  • Summary: After using this mouse for a week, I'm disappointed. It's a lot smaller than I expected - it feels a bit like one of those "mobile" mice, with no support under the palm. I find myself bending my wrist so it sits on the desk behind the mouse. This contortion is exacerbated by the height of the mouse. Indeed, my wrist started aching after a few days' use. If you've got tiny hands, this might be a good mouse for you. If not, I'd advise you to look elsewhere.
