For years my arm has been getting more and more uncomfortable when I do my graphics work. I thought it is just a normal consequence of using a computer all day long and maybe I have to accept it. Then I saw this Vertical Mouse. At first I thought it is too weird, but I was getting desperate for a solution so I got one to try. It came in a cheap box but the product looks well made. It connected via Bluetooth and I downloaded the software. The setup went smoothly. At first the grip position felt strange but I got used to it in a couple days. Amazingly my arm felt more relaxed almost immediately. It has only been a week but the tension is mostly gone and I continue to feel better. I even like the styling now. I'm so glad I got this thing!

Although I would say it is comfor I was really hoping to like this mouse as I needed something to combat my severe carpal tunnel. Although I would say it is comfortable, although takes some getting used to, there are a couple of issues that make this mouse almost unusable.

    1. It has bluetooth connection issues. Basically if you leave it on all the time as I always did with my Magic Mouse it goes to sleep. If you then try to wake it (by clicking on its buttons), it sometimes wakes and frequently doesn't. Turning it off and then is only sometimes solves this problem.

    2. Randomly it will start "stuttering" across my second monitor (the main one) and again I need to turn it off and on again.

    Due to these issues I wouldn't recommend this to anyone.

    I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this mouse because it is easy to use, super comfortable and
    has a lot of features that other input devices don't.

I was so pleased with the first two. One with cable, the other with wireless. I found them so perfect that I doubt I would change the style. However, the Blue-tooth model I bought from Apple a couple of months ago is just dreadful. It only works correctly for about four minutes before I must turn it off and on to get it going again. I have also used a battery every four days on average.

    The first two I purchased were of poor quality manufacture but I can live with that provided they do the job Evoluent promises. I have also turned every Blue-Tooth apparat I own OFF to make sure there is no interference causing the problem. If Evoluent were to send me a cable connected mouse in exchange for this one I would be delighted to continue using their products. But not with Blue-Tooth. An absolute waste of my money but even more frustrating.

The hand position is comfortable and having extra programmable buttons really cuts down on extra movement between the mouse and keyboard.
    HOWEVER, the pointer often gets sluggish/delayed, and when it does it becomes nearly impossible to point the pointer where I want to. To fix it, I have to turn the mouse off and on, but even that works for only a minute or two. This problem emerged about a month or so after buying the mouse.

    This would be a killer mouse if only this problem were fixed.

    BUT the scroll wheel is very skippy, sometimes it goes up instead of down or down instead of up, so scrolling through a long page is frustrating, to the point where I sometimes just mouse over to the page's draggable scroll bar and just drag my way through the page. Too bad. Scroll wheels are an incredible time saver when they work properly.

    There is also an occasional problem where for no apparent reason the pointer just starts to skip around wildly when in use, and the only way to get the mouse back in use is to shut down bluetooth and restart it, a frustrating interruption to your workflow.

    Also, while the mouse disconnects itself from Bluetooth after several minutes of no use (which can be annoying in itself), it does not seem to "sleep" itself, and therefore continues spending battery power overnight, over the weekend, etc. This is not a rechargeable mouse, so keep a hefty supply of AA batteries around. Good for my arm, lousy for the planet. Too bad.
