A co-worker of my husband's has an Evoluent, and being a sufferer of carpal tunnel in an IT profession he became interested in vertical mice. The price of the Evoluent was a turn off, and he stumbled on this alternative. For the money, he decided to give it a try. Here is his review:

I've used it for a few weeks now.

As you can see from the picture, the mouse is not a true vertical. While the angle that it does have is better than a traditional mouse, the design forces your hand into a cupping position that still causes the hand to bend and put pressure on the wrist. You can back off the position some, which feels better and puts the wrist in a more natural position - but then using the scroll wheel is difficult.

I find the paging buttons on the bottom left side of the mouse unusable. They are too far forward and my thumb barely reaches the front button, which doesn't matter because the angle makes it almost impossible to push the button.

It just so happens that my carpal tunnel has been acting up the last week from some household work, and I found using this mouse while it is acting up actually makes my wrist hurt more.

If you have a large hand, then you may find this mouse helpful. I gave it two stars because all of the mouse features work, I just don't find it lives up to the "ergonomic" claim.

The mouse feels pretty good in my hands, and I was pleased that it seems much more ergonomic than my previous standard mouse. Took very little getting used to using it.

Unfortunately, I've had a couple problems with it. First off, it's quite tall, and I keep knocking it off the desk when I go to reach for it. I guess I need to get used to this and lift my hand higher.

The most annoying issue is that after less than a week of use, the scroll wheel is no longer working properly. When I scroll down, it does a sort of bouncy up and down movement, and sometimes after scrolling my window hasn't scrolled any further down than it was before. This is getting really annoying. One of the selling points of this mouse was that it had a normal scroll wheel unlike some other ergo mice.

UPDATE: After leaving my review, I was contacted and offered a replacement or refund. I got the replacement quickly, and it is working better than the original. Customer service is great! Still, I think the mouse itself is poorly built, and occasionally I do have minor issues with the scroll wheel. For the price, it's still a good product - similar products can be much more expensive. I've upped my review to three stars.

Very comfortable with a fantastic design, I have no doubt this is easier on my wrist than a common mouse. Within fifteen minutes of sitting down at someone else's computer I begin to feel a slight tension in my wrist which is absent with the Anker mouse.

My first one died after several months and was replaced with no issues by the company, the replacement is going strong.

The DPI is somewhat lacking for intensive gaming or drawing applications. I actually bought a great US made leather mousepad here on Amazon for about 10 bucks, and that almost completely rectified the issue believe it or not.

I'm really happy I bought this mouse.

Just got it today. Look at the picture from the seller. There's no enough room for your ring finger and little finger. That means if you move the mouse, you little finger will definitely scratch the table. If your hand is big, then two. Unless you love to use your ring and little finger to click, I think that will bother you like it did to me. I tried to use those 2 fingers to click, actually that feels better. But unfortunately, these 2 are not very strengthful. After using and giving it another try again and again, my hand is tired and wrist hurts.
Please consider the design. I think I am not the only one who has this issue.
[Update]I change one to three for their service. Prompt and friendly. Risk-free. I understand it's hard to design and produce a perfect mouse for all people. With good service, things may be easier.

This mouse worked amazing for the first week. However, it has been failing lately. When I use the scroll wheel, it doesn't always work. I will scroll down on a page and it will go slightly up then maybe back down. For the price, it is a decent product, but I wish it worked better.

The company has been great with trying to get me a working mouse. The first replacement only worked for a short time and they were very professional and courteous with taking care of the charges and making me happy. A couple months later, a new mouse arrived in the newer style and it is working well. This mouse is a bit larger than the previous one but it is functioning much better and feels/looks of a higher quality.

Trying to being ergonomical at work can be expensive, so it was nice to find this relatively low-priced vertical mouse on Amazon.
It works adequately, however, there is one big problem: the scroll wheel.
The scroll wheel is constantly getting stuck. It doesn't scroll well and about once or twice a day, I have to roll it back and forth aggressively just to get it to work again.
On the bright side, it has helped with the forearm pain I experience due to my cubital tunnel syndrome. The vertical position is much more natural for my wrist and the buttons work fine. It's just the scroll wheel that is flawed.
So, I guess you get what you pay for, but I would recommend spending a few extra bucks and getting something of a little higher quality if you can afford it.
