Its the second day I am using this mouse at work and at last my wrist is already better! No more aching. I also loved the lights and the way they move. Definitely recommend it!!
I have had this mouse for going on two years and have used it constantly during that time. I decided to try a vertical mouse because I was having wrist pain when using my standard mouse for long periods, and the problem seemed to be worsening. I looked at several and got this one by Anker. Price was one of my big considerations. I didn't want to pay a lot. It took a while to get used to using a vertical mouse, which I anticipated. Probably the hardest thing to get used to is the fact that with a vertical mouse, when you click, you are pressing sideways and not downward. Thus, it is easy to inadvertently move the mouse while clicking. However, that was a temporary problem that I finally overcame. The most important fact is that my wrist pain went away and never came back. So I really do believe that the vertical mouse is the way to go, at least for me. The mouse still works perfectly after all this time, so it seems to be well made, as far as I can tell. I will say that for a time I thought that the forward/back buttons had stopped working. However, when I switched from using Explorer to Firefox, the buttons started working again. So I concluded that it must have been the browser at fault, not the mouse. Both buttons work fine for me now. My experience with this mouse has been very positive and I recommend it to anyone looking for a vertical mouse.
I spent a long time researching. I work 10-12 hour shifts as tech support for a vet med website, so I am constantly back and forth between browser, email, Skype, etc.... I have not tried this for gaming. I was really torn between this style (and several different of them) vs. a trackball, and read a lot of articles and reviews. I am now working from a home office and have limited space, so the trackball was nice from that respect, but the higher rated models were in the same hand position as my traditional mouse. I do use this with a Mac (but Mac mice SUCK). This one is a nice compromise, as the scroll wheel lets me minimize mouse movement. The only thing that doesn't translate is the forward/backward button but that's not really something I would use anyway. The hand position feels pretty natural, though I do use a small wrist rest beanbag style for comfort. It was very plug-and-play and so far I'm very happy with it and would strongly recommend.
I work as an analyst & incident manager. I am often in the office for 12-14 hours at a time, and my old mouse wasn't cutting it. I am a PC gamer at home, and I've never had issues with 3-4 hour gaming sessions on standard gaming mice that I "Palm" with my large hands. At work, it was another story. Wrist pain, aches, ect. Very distracting when you're trying to do incident management! This mouse has been a lifesaver, and I noticed improvement strait away. I saw another reviewer mention a "hard to press" scroll wheel, which was important to them for CAD work. I'll admit that I don't use mine much, and my finger strength is good (I'm 26) so perhaps my perspective is skewed. That being said, the scroll wheel is very easy for me to press. I gave this mouse 3 out of 5 stars for gaming, because realistically, this isn't a great gaming mouse based on refresh rate. The position takes getting used to, and my accuracy isn't as good as with a standard mouse. Not a problem in office work, a huge problem in gaming. But I didn't buy this for that. Anker makes great products, and I have added many to my home over the years. All still work, all work well. Anker, you rock!
I have big hands and I was using a regular sized "normal" mouse, but developed an ache in my right index finger knuckle. The ache became a pain and I had to stop using the mouse and rest for. couple of days. I bought this mouse and it's been great. The grip is very neutral and feels like a glove-type fit. The mouse itself has a very good velvet feeling to it and the buttons are in the right place. The only down side is that it is tall, so initially I would knock it over as I moved my hands around the desk area. I must have become used to it though because it doesn't happen that much any more.
So, I use my PC for extended periods of time. Often 5-6 hours a day, sometimes many more and rarely less. I decided to pick this mouse up on a whim and have had it for over a year at the point of writing this review. You must understand that it is what it is, a budget mouse. You may have issues with cheap parts, but I haven't yet. On the flip side, I've gotten extremely used to using it, so much so that normal mice feel wrong and I dislike using them. I do use it for gaming, but its pretty low intensity flight sim stuff, tho I have used it for more arcadey shooters in the time I've had it. I wouldn't suggest it for trying to be the best at counterstrike or tf2, but if you want a mouse that's just comfy, this works. My only two actual complaints. One is that it's a bit small, seeing as how I have gorilla hands, so I end up with my right ring and pinky finger tending to stick out like a fancy lad. My other complaint is that it is too light, some sort of filler insert weight lower down on it to bring the center of gravity down would be stellar. Or even just rearranging the electronics to bring them as low as possible or something, idk I'm not an engineer.
Mouse two months, came in a package without a box, whole, complete, fully working. Pleasant plastic, the backlight changes, and shows that the mouse is turned on. Until I'm used to it, it's harder to put on the top buttons of the left and right buttons, but here the wheels are comfortable for moving through pages, move the mouse to get into There are additional 3 buttons, a button off and power on. In general, a normal mouse for work, so that the brush is not a charter.
This mouse is awesome! I got this because I started to develop a tender wrist from pronation/supination of my wrist. Wow did this help fix the issues! This mouse is very comfortable and has buttons in the right places for easy access. I use this mouse for home and office use. The mouse is always accurately sensitive, so you get exactly what you expect in terms of mouse speed and mouse precision. There's a few minute learning curve of getting used to "aiming" with the mouse but is quickly overcome with > 1hr of play. There ARE a few downsides: 1) the mouse isn't the best for gaming. I've tried on Rust and League of Legends; both games I had to switch to a gaming mouse because the ergonomics of the Anker didn't work well for very quick and precise movements 2) the cord is a little short. I ended up remedying this because I had another issue with having to switch over all my wired USB peripherals (mouse, keyboard, DAC) between my work laptop and my home PC. Unless you're going directly down to a tower or something you may want to get an extender or switcher tl;dr: great mouse for the price, is very ergonomic and helped my wrist heal from what I presume to be tendonitis
So I made the grave mistake on my life of buying Factorio which has now consumed my existence. Unfortunately designing factories with my old mouse, a Razor gaming mouse, didn't provide much support for ergonomics, so between dreaming of building factories and wondering why my wrist was aching, I decided to pull the trigger on a vertical mouse to see if it would help reduce the strain on my man-child wrists. After a few days I have to say, it feels like an improvement and my gaming mouse is now tossed over to the corner of my room where it will become forgotten and the Anker mouse has taken front and center. It is coated with some soft plastic that makes it soft to touch. Mouse wheel scrolls appropriately. The only real gripe is the right clicker is almost located at the middle, so it took a little adjustment. This mouse is appropriate for small-medium sized hands. I purposely choose corded because I hate changing batteries and sacrificing my USB ports to another small dongle-like device. All in all, this does the job. I was skeptical of the vertical mouse movement because I was concerned it was just a "fad" but for what its worth, even if I develop wrist strain 1 month after this review, it will be a "different" wrist strain and I should be able to switch back to my other mouse by then. At the price point, unbeatable - feels like a premium product with nice packaging and everything, not the kind of $10 mouse that you get with the cord wrapped up, and questionably grimey appearing finger clicks. This is a new, premium appearing mouse. Highly recommended.
I have an ergonomic mouse at work that I love and I wanted one for my home, there's no way I can afford the one my office purchases for us so I looked at cheaper brands like this one. I expected it to be a downgrade, boy was I wrong! This is way better than the one my office has and it fits my hand better. The thumb rest feels natural and I love that it only has the two buttons, not 3 (it gets super confusing when I use my ring finger and nothing happens at work). The wheel works great and yes there is some sound, but I've never owned a mouse that doesn't make the wheelie sound when I use it. It's a comfort some days lol. I like that mine lights up, I didn't expect that because I thought I picked the one that didn't, but looking back I chose the one that lights up red, and I love it.
Product as described. Good value for money. Fast deliver to Germany. Ordered on 24.12 got it on 09.01. Hope it lasts long.
I wanted a wired ergonomic mouse because I didn't want to fuss with batteries. After doing my usual research, I decided on this Anker based upon the reviews and it's competitive price. It's comfortable with nice build quality (e.g., soft touch finish) and buttons in the proper location (I especially like the forward and backward buttons activated by my thumb. I originally purchased this mouse back in Jun 2017. In Dec 2018, the scrolling started going haywire (instead of scrolling smoothly in a single direction, it would skip forward and backwards). I submitted a warranty request (just within the 18 month warranty window) and got a speedy reply. They were apologetic and offered some troubleshooting suggestions. It was quickly determined as defect, immediately sent out a replacement, and promptly followed up (after tracking delivery) to make sure my issue was resolved. I was traveling at the time and unable to track down the package, but they remained patient and persistent to make sure my issue was fully resolved. 5-stars for the excellent customer service. I docked a star for Durability because my first one went bad, but wouldn't hesitate to purchase Anker products in the future. I would consider paying a small premium for their products because they stand behind their quality because you often get what you pay for.
