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., hand on the side of the mouse (neutral wrist position) vs.
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. This is intended for a permanent desktop install where people don't mind an extra mouse-size corded dongle sitting on the desktop.
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. I haven't seen a worst range from a wireless mouse/product ever, and I've used a couple dozens of different ones over the years.
Summary: Unlike other reviewers, I found this mouse to be comfortable. However, moving the mouse directly left caused the mouse pointer to move just as much up as it did left (take the mouse you're using now and turn it counter-clockwise 45 degrees in your hand to see what I mean). If I held the mouse in a position that let me move the pointer normally, it was very uncomfortable and the buttons were hard to hit. I gave up after a few hours and returned it.
Summary: I bought this mouse after a lot of waiting and reviewing. I was suffering from this mild to medium wrist pain and I was desperately looking for a new mouse. I even bought the joy stick - Zero Tension mouse from Ergo Items. I just couldnt get comfortable with the ZTM. Its difficult to maintain a vertical (handshake) position for a long time. Then I bought the Natural 6000 thinking it doesnt force your palm to be perpendicular to the ground.
Summary: I use a mouse a lot and often had an aching arm/wrist. Spent a while looking round various websites and reviews for a suitable mouse to overcome this, and came across this mouse. I've used it for a couple of weeks now, and to be honest its not as good as I was hoping, and have reverted to my previous mouse. The mouse seems designed to be operated by moving the whole arm as opposed to moving your hand/fingers. This is fine for occasional movements (i.e.
Summary: Not very impressed with this mouse. Found it a bit small for my hand. Don't understand how they can tout it as being "groundbreaking" either - I had an ergonomic Logitech mouse some years ago and was gutted when it broke and not only couldn't I find a replacement but couldn't even find any record that it actually existed.
