Good Ergonomics marred by usability
Posted by radarbob on Aug 23rd 2013
Ergonomics - 4+
Like most of the reviewers here I give a hearty thumbs up for the basic ergonomics. Fits my smaller hand well.
Mousing About - 3
Easy, accurate, smooth. However, inevitably one must pick it up to reposition - and I almost always click some button on the left side. The surface is too slick for a light grip when picking it up. Perhaps if there was some kind of edge/ledge between the top 2 buttons on the left side then that would solve the problem ... The concave thumb rest on the right side keeps me from accidentally hitting those buttons.
Button Programmability - thumbs up
The fact that it's programmable is a BIG plus.
Functionality - 2
This mouse should have "continuous scrolling"/"smooth scrolling"/dynamic scrolling or whatever it's called. Like scrolling on the iPhone, or the Logitech Performance MX mouse.
This is not a $15 dollar mouse. So why is the scroll wheel so circa 1990? That is, a clicky scroll. It takes many, many, many, finger pushes to scroll down a web page.
Adjustability via the Mouse Manager screen simply cannot mitigate this very disappointing limitation. This is probably a Windows limitation, not the Evoluent software. For example a press-scroll moves the screen a lot, but it is so jumpy, jerky, too-much-per-click as to make press-scroll unusable.

Left hand wired mouse

I love this mouse! It really is much more comfortable and natural to grab a mouse with your thumb upwards and pinky downwards. The only reason I did not give 5 stars is because it needs to be a little smaller. The world is not "one size fits all".
Left Handed Mouse

The mouse is a little bit difficult to get used to I would give it five stars if it was wireless and really what I was looking For was a left handed trackball
Makes a big difference

As a left-hander it is VERY difficult to get a good ergonomic mouse - there are very few to choose from.
I've had the Vertical Mouse now for a couple of months. The first week or two was strange, not bad - just different. It took a little getting used to. Now, its second nature and the problems [& pain] I was having with my arm have gone completely.
My only complaint is that with the larger surface mass of the mouse in contact with my hand, there is a need to clean it more often. Also, I would have preferred a less smooth surface overall for a better grip, as my hand and fingers slide around occasionally and also get stickier than on other mice.
