People in the office say it feels weird but I don't notice anymore (had it over a year now) and it only took me a few moments (seconds) to get used to it, it was couple of days before I stopped knock it over moving my hand around. Works just like a normal mouse but your hand is turn to a more natural position. Think about it put your hands out in front of you with you elbows by your side, what way does you hands what to be? now think of how you hold a normal mouse.
The 3 dpi setting are great and match the cheap gaming mouses, I have gamed once on it when I got it was fine no issues. But if you big into gaming stick with your gaming mouse for gaming and this for other things that what I do.
Battery life is great I get a couple of months using it 8 and half hours 5 day a week. there is an on/off switch on it but I honestly never use it, it powers down after a few min of no use and you just need to click any button to get it going again.
Just encase anyone wonders there is a spot under it for the Bluetooth when not in use.
It hasn't started to even show ware a year later. I love this thing and would buy it again in a heart beat.
J'ai voulu tester une souris verticale, et celle-ci me permettait de me faire une idée à bas coût.
Les plus :
- La prise en main est déroutante au début, mais on s'y fait après quelques heures d'utilisation.
- Une fois qu'on a la souris bien en main, on sent bien que la position de notre poignet et bien plus reposante.
- Il est possible de ranger le dongle sous la souris, ce qui est très pratique.
- Le bouton au dessus de la souris permet de changer la sensibilité (dpi) de la souris à la volée.
Les moins :
- La souris ne respire pas la qualité. Après seulement un mois d'utilisation le revêtement commence à disparaître.
- Le bouton de la molette est assez dur. Mais on peu cliquer en relevant le majeur et en cliquant sur le côté. Avec le temps cela s'améliore.
- Le bouton de mise en marche est très dur également, cependant avec le temps il s'adoucit.
- Pas du tout adapté au gaming. Le capteur n'est pas de qualité et elle a une certaine latence. Cela dit, elle convient parfaitement pour de la bureautique
Si vous possédez un meilleur budget, je vous conseil plutôt de vous tourner vers la MX Vertical. Cependant, cette souris mérite ses 4 étoiles et Anker à le mérite de proposer une souris ergonomique sans fil à bas prix, ce qui permet de se donner une idée.
Si vous trouvez cet avis utile, pensez à cliquer sur oui. Cela fait toujours plaisir de savoir qu'on a pu aider quelqu'un.
For me it was also working overtime so I could be doing 10-12 hour days at a computer. My wrist started to feel 'weak' and I couldn't grip things very well - like my steering wheel. It would always feel better at the start of the next day so I didn't think much of it. Then it stopped feeling better and I constantly had a weak, numbing feeling in my hand and wrist. I was starting to overcompensate with my left hand, it was badly affecting my everyday life.
So I googled and found out about the vertical mouse. Quick look on Amazon and this one came up as a sponsored link, but due to the low price and excellent reviews I bought it. Next day delivery, on a Sunday too.
I've been using this for a month now but I can honestly say I felt the difference the very first day. It takes a few minutes to get used to holding it but now it's second nature. Before trying this I was extremely stressed trying to work though the pain. I had got to the point where I was crying on the drive home thinking I would have to leave a job I loved because I was losing feeling in my hand.
I would advise that you buy one of these regardless of if you have wrist issues - why wait until you're in pain. All I can say is for the price what have you got to lose?
The mouse is far too light. I don't understand the trend with making mice as light as possible - surely with some resistance this allows for finer control? I also found that having to click the mouse to get it to wake up started to become annoying - there is no indication whether it's awake or asleep until you try and use it.
It had since been replaced with a Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Mouse, which has a near-perfect amount of resistance.
One thing - I'd recommend also getting one of the squishy wrist support pads, otherwise your wrist bones will be resting on the desk, which is not ideal. They're not very expensive and the two complement each other perfectly. Just getting one of those jelly pads really doesn't work at all.
For the people who find this harder to get used to than I did (I took to it immediately), you'll need to challenge your ideas about how a mouse should be. It *does* require more concentration to find it and put your hand around it, but then, hand positioning is half the point of ergonomic design. Take the extra second or so to figure out what you're doing, it's worth it. I felt like it was easy to move it - push it gently with an open hand and it glides, no need to grip it hard at all. One of the main problems with trad mice is that you cramp into an unnatural claw position to keep your grip on them.
I will say that I would have preferred a L-ion battery. AAA? Really? In this day and age...? I bought rechargeable AAAs, although that isn't necessary - the cheapest old batteries from Poundland lasted ages in this mouse.
It is not clear to me on what basis they allow to say that the mouse is 'ergonomic'. It is not.
UPDATE: Following my low evaluation Anker sent me another mouse (for free) in which the issues mentioned above are solved and it is much better for my wrist/thumb problems.
The model is: Wireless Mouse, Anker Ergonomic USB 2.4G Wireless Vertical Mouse with 3 Adjustable DPI Levels 800 / 1200 / 1600 and Side Controls. After using this specific model my wrist and thumb pain is reduced - though not eliminated.
That puts Anker in prime position to target options-limited consumers with devices that either:
A- were not thoroughly tested
B- were great designs, ruined by committee rule or a "looks first" approach.
I'm thinking B, because the build quality is otherwise stunning, especially at this price point!
If you try to close a door from the edge nearest the hinge, it's hard work. That's how clicking feels.
In a quest to have clean lines that join up, Anker has opted to go with a single piece of flexible plastic for Left/Right click. This has no give until about an inch and a half from the "hinge"
The "central vertical colum" extends too far back into the area between your thumb and forefinger too, so even with adult male hands, it's awkard to click near the softest part.
Long story short, your thumb "braces" to counter the force slightly and it starts to cause problems after a while.
(And that's with me switching to a regular mouse every so often to give my hand a break)
The browser back/forward buttons also feel tacked on at the last minutes and take some acrobatics to operate, but at least being difficult to click makes them impossible to accidentally click.
There's so much right with this mouse:
-great tracking, some of the best even
-glide pads underneath are super easy to clean and really well adhered to the base
-the single battery lasts ages
-the plastic finish feels gorgeous to the touch
-there's a little low battery light under the back/forward buttons.
-scrolling is great, feels really good
In either scenario, I can't really see how this was missed in a product which otherwise easily the best I've used in the last 30 years. And that's a warning bell that something's really not right at Anker.
I thought that was ridiculous, and seeing as I wanted one for my home PC as well, I searched around for something cheaper. After completing my research I bought two of these, for a fraction of the price, and claimed one back from work on expenses.
They get a bit of getting used to, but after two days it became the norm, and they are now much more comfortable than a normal flat mouse - which I now find to be a bit weird and uncomfortable in my hand.
I know the manufacturer having bought other items from Anker before, and I am confident they will last. It's been over a month so far and they're both still functioning perfectly.
To summarise, this is a very cheap product, well worth the money, and much much more comfortable and natural than a regular mouse.
The second problem with the mouse is the position of upper mouse click button (left click) is too far away from the bottom button. it won't cause problem when you hold the mouse horizontally since your index and middle fingers can position "V" shape easily. But when you hold the mouse vertically, the index finger has to continuously move up to click the mouse button which is unconfortable and easily getting tired.
I have tried the mouse for couple of days, decided it is not suitable for me, returned and switch back to my old logitech M705.
I've been computing since the 80's and using a mouse daily since the mid 90's, so it's not a complete surprise I'm getting a little RSI in my old age. So I thought I'd try this ergonomic mouse, to see if that would help. I'm a big fan of Anker products, so I bought this ergonomic mouse with a little more confidence and a little less vigilance than usual when making a purchase.
Unfortunately, there are a few things I don't like about this mouse. Firstly, while it has a lovely soft-feel finish, in use it's too slippery to get a decent hold on and my thumb slides down onto the mouse mat. To stop this, I have to grip the mouse, which means I have to tense my hand, which means before long, using the mouse becomes uncomfortable.
To resolve this issue, I modified the mouse with my hot glue gun, forming a ridge for my thumb to rest on (see pics), and that improved it for me.
Another thing I don't like, is that the battery cover broke upon first use, which was a bit of a pain, though it didn't effect its operation at all, and the cover stays in place okay. It just looks broken.
Grumbles aside, the mouse slides over my mouse-mat very nicely indeed, and is very light. I think a grippier coating would improve the mouse, but my glue-gun mod has been a cheap and simple mod to solve the problem of my thumb sliding off the mouse. The buttons all work well, as does the wheel, and there's DPI adjustment and next/previous buttons too.
I'm happy enough with my modified mouse, without being over the moon with it. Before I modified it, I didn't much like it. My wife has smaller hands than me, and she liked the mouse before my mod, but my son didn't like it before and doesn't like it after. So ultimately, this is a mouse may or may not suit you.
My opinion of the mouse is an ambiguous shrug: I don't recommend it, but I wouldn't want to talk you out of getting one, either.
Pros- It's quite big (although still not quite big enough for my freakish hands). Left and right mouse clicks are good, Solid build. Accurate tracking. Doesn't need a mouse mat.
Cons.- I don't like the vertical position. You feel like you're holding the mouse "in" your hand, rather than resting your hand "on" the mouse. For me this makes using the mouse for long periods more tiring than a regular mouse. This problem is exacerbated when pressing the mouse buttons; Because the mouse isn't lying flat on the desk, in order to "press" a button, your finger has to apply lateral force, which moves the mouse sideways. To counteract this your thumb has to provide an opposite force on the other side of the mouse. The upshot of this is that, in order to press any of the buttons, you essentially have to "squeeze" the mouse between your thumb and fingers, which is a lot more effort than pressing down on a traditional mouse button with your finger. (Particularly the middle mouse button which is pretty stiff)
I think this mouse might be of use for someone who doesn't actually use the mouse all that much. If your primary application is "Microsoft Office" or similar, where you mostly use keyboard, then it might be good for you. But I'm a CG Animator, so I use the mouse a lot (particularly the middle mouse button for Maya navigation), so the extra effort required to press the buttons and the instability caused by the sideways force on the buttons makes the vertical mouse design fundamentally unsuitable for my needs
Let's start with the good things:
- Surprisingly comfortable even with a big hand, but cutting it close
- Nice feeling textures. Doesn't feel cheap or plasticy
- Good durability despite the low cost
- Button Locations (including back buttons) are comfortable and easy to reach
- Allows for DPI Switching (more below)
Cons. And this is where you need to make the decision for yourself whenever or not this is a deal breaker for you
- The Optical Sensor is questionable. With various surfaces, or even a grainy gaming-style mousepad, it has noticeable issues to pick up and a stutter is the consequence. Even on smooth surfaces and "standard" mouse pads it didn't pick up as fluidenly as I'd expect for a mouse in the modern age. The issue persisted regardless of DPI Setting.
- No onboard memory. DPI Settings are stored on your Computer. While you can change the DPI Settings, you can only do that once the USB Dongle is in the PC, and the Mouse is properly recognized. Pressing the DPI Switcher Button without that will just default you to the default setting. This is a potential issue for any locked (work) devices that do not allow for dongle installations
- No charging possibilities. 2 AAA Batteries are needed. If this is a pro or con for you I'll let you decide, for me it's a definite con.
- To pick up from my Pro List. While I have big hands, they do fit into the mouse. But barely. Any non perfect positioning and I am sliding over the surface. With a bit more training I'm sure I'll just get used to that, but a larger size would be appreciated.
