Just a quick video review of the Evoluent Mouse. I discuss some pluses, some minuses and my overall impression of how it works for me.

A point I don't clarify in the video is when my hand feels good (nerve problems aren't flaring), I still prefer to use a normal mouse over this. It's just easier to work with. I'm also ambidextrous a bit, so with a normal mouse, I can use either hand if need be. This mouse is only good for my slightly-dominant, right hand.

Finally $89 (or something near there) is a LOT to pay for a mouse that doesn't entirely fit the bill. It would be a real coin flip whether I would buy it again (for that much money anyway) now that I've worked with it a bit, and I'm not so blown away by it.

The obvious selling point is the neutral vertical (or handshake) position your hand will stay in during use but version 4 ("VM4R") has some notable improvements over other versions (I also own version 2) that definitely justify the slight price difference:

1. Stickier material - makes it easier to grip the mouse with less effort.

2. Mouse wheel - has tiny rivets making it easier to grip and turn (mouse wheel was entirely too slick on past versions).

3. Pointer speed buttons included on the mouse (with an electronic display showing your current speed) - it can get very fast which equates to a lot of movement with little wrist work.

4. Bigger flanged web at the base on which the pinky fingers rests so it doesn't drag across the mouse pad

General notes:
1. You definitely need to use this mouse with a wrist-rest-mouse-pad to keep your arm and wrist in alignment.

2. There are 3 finger buttons, 2 thumb buttons and 1 mouse wheel button all of which are programmable. There's an additional 4 combination button clicks. Any of these can be programmed (software is easy & intuitive) for helpful functions to minimize keystrokes / mouse movement. To name a few: Cut, Copy, Paste, Backspace, Back, Forward, Delete, Double Click, Enter, F1-F10, Show/Hide Desktop, Spacebar, Start, Tab, and many more.

3. It works well for most hand sizes: it's used and loved by both a 6'-0" 180-lb male and a 5'-0" 100-lb female in my household.

4. The corded version is lighter than the wireless version due to the batteries' weight.

In Closing:
I have wrist tendonitis and as a mechanical engineer, computing is 95% of my day.

I like the mouse, but I have small hand; a little too big for me. I returned this one because I found out that they do have a small version for small hand. Just search "Evoluent VerticalMouse 4 Small" in Amazon. It is purple color. Model #: VM4S

I suffered for a while with a standard mouse. Arm pains, elbow pains, wrist pains. Took me a while to take the leap and spend so much on a new mouse. Mice are supposed to be a dime a dozen - in fact I had a few high quality mice which still gave me pain. It got really bad.

So finally, I decided to buy the Evoluent Vertical Mouse. After much research on different ergonomic mice and trying a trackball (no way couldnt get used to it) and trying a few other options short of spending so much on a darn mouse - I realized it was either this or nothing - I took the leap and bought it.

Super glad I did. For the first couple weeks I thought I made a mistake buying this mouse. It was somewhat awkward and at first didn't fully relieve the pain. But I stuck with it. Slowly, I started not to notice the mouse when using it (which is a good thing). I also don't know exactly how long it took but I had no more pain. And I am now actually almost as accurate in movement as my standard mouse of 20 years.

While I think 20+ years of using a regular mouse is hard to break - it took about 1-2 months until I was totally comfortable with the Evoluent Mouse - But now I LOVE IT and cant go back. Whenever I switch to using a regular mouse (even those ones that claim to be ergonomic but really just have a curve to them) I notice right away the strain put on my arm.

The build quality is excellent, the color and style are attractive. I am picky and find I am very satisfied with this mouse. They did not cut corners on the build quality - very nice.

I HIGHLY recommend this mouse and would not hesitate to get it again if I need to.

I bought this mouse from the manufacturer before it was available here. I have big hands; my wife says they are bear paws.

The mouse has a flange on the bottom to keep your little finger from dragging on the mouse pad; I was concerned my hand would be too big. As it is, there is no problem with my hand's size. The manufacturer's reviews have some women whose hands are too small for this mouse.

As far as use of the mouse, there is an ergonomist's posting on another version of this mouse that I think is worth reading. I try to take his advice on using this mouse.

In addition to giving you a more natural grip, like a handshake, the mouse gives you 6 buttons, and a wheel. Evoluent provides a driver so you can program the buttons to any one of quite a few functions, and they are easily reprogrammable.

The bottom thumb button (there are two) allows you to give the finger buttons alternate functions when they are pressed. I've programmed my alternates to top button = BACK. middle button = Open Explorer. and bottom button = page down.

I've programmed the top thumb button to change pointer speed. You get up to three speeds to select from. I have speed 1 the fastest, and at that setting I can move the cursor a long way with very little hand motion.

I'm an electronic engineer and mostly develop software that interacts with hardware. I'm always opening up explorer to goto another directory to find a file I need. With this mouse, I don't need to cursor to the START button; I just press the bottom thumb button and the middle finger button, and explorer starts up. How cool is that?

I spend about 3 hours working with my investments every weekend, and I'm currently taking it home with me on Friday, and bringing it back to work on Monday.
