Really does help with ergonomic injuries

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 ...
Pros: Laser. Less expensive than similar models. We use the more expensive version at work that is less susceptible to interference, however, I like this model better. The ergonomics of the grip is better, and a 5 button setup is nice.
Cons: This thing is bulky...not really heave to push, but it IS large. If you have a sliding keyboard tray that is close the underside of your desk...your knuckles may rub.
Summary: I have a long hand and fingers so it fits my hand better than someone with smaller hand and shorter fingers. Thumb buttons are not a problem and I don't use the center button. So this mouse is a good fit for me.
Pros: Puts all of the weight on your palm and not on the center of your wrist. This is my second mouse. I bought this for home. I have been using the one at work for a year now and my wrist has not bothered me for a long time.
Summary: It is comfortable. It is important that your desk is at the right level. In terms of ergonomics, your elbows should be close to your body and not reaching out to a desk that is too high when typing and using a mouse.
Pros: -Comfortable (you get used to it) -The included batteries lasted me over 5 months (week away from 6) when used 40 hrs/week at work. -Accuracy is great, I have never experienced any jittery responsiveness (even when the batteries are low) from the wireless interface that I have seen in other wirel...
Cons: The right click on the mouse I received is sort of "sticky" It doesn't click until push down a lot and it feels like it unclicks later than it should. It took a few weeks to "break it in" to the point where this wasn't as noticeable, but I still think about it from time to time. Part of making th...
Summary: Size of a medium potato with a flat bottom. Read comments about adaptability problem with this mouse, it took about 2 weeks to become completely comfortable. After that it doesn’t matter how many hours I use this mouse there is now discomfort.
Pros: I'm using the third 6000 v1.0. Fits my hand and comfortable to use for 12 hours a day or more working on graphics. IntelliPoint software provides excellent adjustability and configuration options for the 5 buttons.
Cons: Nothing special about durability, mouse wears out in 12 -18 months just like all other mice I have tried. The light gray area where your thumb rest becomes yellowed over time and the lower right side dark gray surface wears away and can be scratched with fingernails which adds to the normal wear.
Summary: It is a definite improvement over a standard mouse, but not dramatic enough for you if you are already beginning to feel discomfort in your wrist. I would recommend this mouse to someone who uses a computer alot and wants to prevent discomfort issues, but if you are already to the point of your...
Summary: I don't have carpal tunnel syndrome yet, and I am doing my best to stave it off. At the office, I use the best ergonomic mouse ever made, the "Zero Tension Mouse" (available at UltraLite Zero Tension Mouse Eases Carpal Tunnel - Size LARGE , but cheaper on other websites).
Summary: I am going to get a wired keyboard to go with this product. If you have a wrist injury test this in the store before purchase. After a few minutes of use on a flat mouse pad I was in pain from a bone that was forced to touch the flat surface. Using a pad w/ a gel bump helps.
Pros: Fits large hands well.
Cons: The mouse does not work w/ older receivers. Using both receivers in my system caused my machine to stutter. Keyboard tray will not close. This mouse is quite tall, check clearance for keyboard trays.
