Avoid this product, not worth it
It seems nice at first, then you realize that if you tap the table surface with it when moving or even tap the top of the mouse - the batteries fall down little bit under their own weight and disconnect the mouse. You just need to push them in slightly and maybe stop them from falling down the chamber by putting some paper... but... for this price? it is a disaster, and the design, there are far better cheaper real vertical mouses that do much better job, this only pretends to be ergonomic and i end up sometimes holding it like conventional one instead. Drop it on the floor by accident and it brakes in to pieces like the old cell phones back in the day.
I have the comfort variant of the mouse, but I'm willing to bet the materials are the same. The plastic and rubber get sticky when using it, which makes it very unpleasant to hold. The design is good but they cheaped out and ruined it. Also they are way overpriced in Aus, going for 50 dollars at JB and in US they're like 19 dollars and that's taking inflation into consideration. AVOID
Great visual design, anything but ERGONOMIC, hurts your hand and fingers - Terrible product
This product looks great, feels OK in your hand, at first it all seems great and I am sure it must have felt great when it was prototyped in Microsoft's facility with their new product development team, however like their software they obviously do not test their equipment beyond the initial stages and onto release. This mouse is a load of absolute garbage, it hurts your hand and especially fingers, the mouse starts to stick such that you forcibly have to click to make it work which reverberates in terms of sound and pain back into your hand se...nding a small shock-wave into your fingers and back into your wrists, it is NOT Ergonomic at ALL, after doing this repeatedly it actually gets painful. In fact I would suggest it has the absolute opposite effect and is damaging to your hand, fingers and health. This is a genuine, honest review of a product that should be withdrawn from sale until the design flaws have been rectified.
- Huge mouse very suitable for people with big hands like myself.
- Very ergonomic, you just rest your palm on the mouse, and you will love the easiness.
- long battery life.
- The two buttons (Start and back) work really well on Windows; and yes VERY handy.
- Works fine on Mac, but the start button obviously does nothing.
- After 11 months, my left click button stopped working, and I was lucky to get it swapped under the warranty. But noticed that many people are complaining about it online.
- If your hands do sweat, this mouse wont be of a joy for you. It will make your hands sweat even more. The material itself will make your hands sweat. ...
Terrible! Consider the sculpt comfort instead
There are 2 problems with this product, first the receiver dongle that you plug into your computer (it should work via blue tooth so no dongle is required) is massive, so gets caught on things and is easily damaged. Microsoft should learn from Logitech as theirs is nice and small.
The second issue is the mouse itself. It means that your hand is not flat on the desk and instead the right hand base of your hand gets quite sore after using it all day. The workaround is to use a mousepad with a gel wrist rest.
Average Microsoft Mouse
This mouse is comfortable to hold. From the beginning, it will take you a little while to get use to it. After that, it is very comfortable to hold. One problem I have got after few months of usage which is the bluetooth connectivity issue. I experienced few times that mouse lost connection with the screen. First I thought maybe the batteries running low. I changed batteries, the mouse still not working. The only way to solve the problem is to unplug its USB and plug in again to your PC.
