ergonomically works well, doesn't wear well

Summary: positives: For someone with fairly large hands, fits hand fine, less wrist strain than other mice I've used due to not having to twist arm inward as most mice require. I have three of these, one is actually the 7000 that came with the wireless desktop, physically the same mouse, so I love the ergonomics. but...
Summary: It will take some getting used to this mouse; but time will tell if it becomes my favorite or not. This is a big mouse, so if you have a cramped area, you may need to adjust the tracking. The programmable buttons for your thumb are a little awkward to hit, but it may just take practice. I just love the 4-way scrolling using the mouse wheel; scrolling left or right in web pages or my huge Excel spreadsheets is effortless.
Summary: One of the biggest improvements I've when it comes to hand and wrist pain came from my Microsoft 4000 Ergonomic Keyboard. As such, I figured "well, if they can do the keyboard so well, why not the mouse?" I'd been struggling with a Logitech mouse for a while, so this one seemed like a good try. Don't get me wrong, it'll help...IF you know how to use it. I get lazy and just grab it sometimes..
Summary: Pros: exceptional laser tracking on all surfaces. Smooth middle scroll wheel. Cons: takes some getting used to. Signal distance limited to about four feet. Seller cons: not a new item. Time of usage before writing this review: 2 weeks. MY PROBLEM I have large hands, so standard mice are too low for my palm to rest upon and become uncomfortable after hours of use.
Summary: This mouse is very large, and after a week I've given up and am giving it to a friend who has large hands and loves it. The hand position you are supposed to use with it is awkward and sends shooting pains up my arm. I'm looking for a smaller, more comfortable mouse that fits my hand better.
Summary: * Positives: This mouse helps prevent a pain in my wrist that I get when I use a standard mouse for an extended period of time. You grip this mouse at about a 45 degree angle, which is a much more normal angle for the wrist. It definitely helps me. This doesn't necessarily mean it will help you the same way, everyone's different, but it is certainly a much more natural angle for the wrist to be in for longer periods of time.
Summary: This mouse is not your regular ergonomic mouse, what you don't see on pictures is the fact that the area where your thumb rests on the left is raised by about 2cm, which means you must twist your hand in what at first is an unnatural position if you are used to other ergonomic mice. The other problem for me is that the mouse isn't made for 'bigger' hands, which means that it actually becomes a pain to operate the scroll wheel / front buttons.
Summary: Ayant une "tendite de la souris", cette souris est mieux car on a la main droite et non à plat, le probleme est que le bouton du milieu est tres dur à utiliser et crée de nouveaux problemes sur les tendons du doigt. (pour les utilisateurs de Maya/3dsmax). On s'y habitue vite, elle est confortable et assez precise.
Summary: N'empêche pas les douleurs dans le poignet (canal carpien) mais très douce à l'utilisation. Attention : On ne peut se passer d'un tapis de souris avec cette souris. Le sans fil est un leurre : elle est vendue avec un fil pour brancher la clé USB et l'instrument de réception du wifi (longeur du fil = environ 50 cm et la taille de l'instrument de réception est équivalente à celle d'une souris !!!). Ceci n'est jamais montré sur les photos.
