I got this mouse because I was looking for something ergonomic but had 3 mouse buttons that could be pushed independently. I reccomend the 3M ergonomic mouse over this one since it is more comfortable (even though you cannot push the left and right buttons independently because it is a see-saw like button).

With the Evoluent, I found it awkward to push the mouse buttons. It required me to hold down the mouse down steady with my thumb because my clicking the buttons from the side would move the mouse slightly. Having to hold it down and apply that small amount of pressure gets uncomfortable after a few thousand clicks. You trade off wrist injuries for finger joint injuries. I also found the blade of my hand (the side that I would use for a karate chop) would start to get raw from the friction of mousing it over my desk after being on the computer for a few hours. I admit I do have large hands. I never had any issues with it not working.

Needless to say I went back to my 3m renaissance mouse for regulaur use, and for any of my programs that require 3 independent mouse buttons (like games) , I just use my logitech mx700. The Evoluent mouse does not fufill on all it's promises but it is a competent mouse.

This mouse takes a little getting-used-to, since it puts your hand in a sideways position. However, I was getting some aches and pains from spending so much time at the computer, and it seems to be helping. It's really quite comfortable. Note that this mouse cannot be used left-handed - you have to buy a different one, oriented the opposite way.

Verified Purchase
I ordered the mouse after reading a review on a gamers site I found through Google. I'm not a gamer, I'm a graphic artist who works heavy in Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator and everything in between.

I considered giving the mouse a 4-star rating but the fact is that it has allowed me to keep working when it was too painful to use an ordinary mouse. The fact I can work, that alone gives it a five star ranking. That said - here's what you need to know:

1. General stuff: Yes, it does work, and well. The resolution is fine for art. It is a bit on the big side, but must be for the grip to work. It also scares people away from using your computer (they don't know what it is) so it's an added plus. The wheel is smooth-action, no incremental bumping. It's optical (no ball), programmable, 3 button plus a thumb-button scroll-button and has a cord. The tray icon on a PC looks like a turd or cockroach.

2. If some of the other reviews make you think it's a tough mouse with really think plastic, it isn't. The plastic is thin near the buttons and is transluscent -- the laser lights up almost the whole mouse when being moved. It is strong enough though, and since the weight is fairly low it's easy to move. I expected a heavy mouse with a lot of plastic. It isn't, it's fairly light and it's not a problem.

3. The wierd handshake-style way you use it takes a few days to get used to. When you hold the VerticalMouse the first time and then hold your old standard mouse, you will immediately notice how much better the VerticalMouse feels. I found myself switching back and forth between my old mouse the first week, but finally gave up on the old mouse because of the pain and I'm glad I did. After about two weeks of a normal workload I'm doing much better with controlling it.

I own both the first model as well as the Evoluent 2. One at work on a Unix system and the other on a WinXP system.

They are very comfortable and do help reduce the strain in my wrist.

I have not had any problems except with the Evoluent 2 where after about 10 - 11 months it would intermittently stop working.

I contacted Evoluent about it and they immediately sent me a replacement which is working just fine.

This type of service is not often seen these days.

I do feel it is a bit pricey, but I gave this 5 stars instead of 4 because of the good service.

I didn't like it for the first two weeks, by 3rd week I was o.k. with it, by 4th week I liked it and wrist pain was gone. I'm going to talk a lot about negatives, but if it takes the pain away the negatives don't matter.

Pros:

* Takes the wrist pain away.

Cons:

* Takes time to get use to.

* Initial pain in other areas, because you are using new muscles.

* If you also use a left hand mouse, the movement of the evoluent mouse doesn't match other mouses. It moves the mouse much greater distances.

How it stops the pain:

My biggest problem was constantly resting my hand on the mouse causing stress on the wrist. Because the mouse is verticle you can not rest you wrist on top of it anymore and vertical rest position is not stressful on wrist.

Other comments:

Now I went ahead and ordered a vertical mouse for my left hand.

In order to give it 5 stars it needs to:

* Have movement similar to other mouses.

* Would prefer if it were less vertical.

* Fewer people complaining that it stopped working.
