The Vertical Mouse 3 is a major improvement and step in the right direction with respect to mice and ergonomics. My initial reaction to the Vertical Mouse was one of skeptical curiosity, as its shape can be misleading. I eventually found the smooth feel of the mouse, the comfort and the precise movement to overshadow any of my previous assumptions. It must be said that this is not a gaming mouse even though it has the high resolutions of one. I found the mouse very useful and comfortable for everyday computing, but more difficult to use for gaming as it requires a very soft touch. The height of the mouse also becomes an issue if you use a keyboard drawer. Check the dimensions of this mouse against the height of your keyboard drawer to ensure a proper fit.
The Mouse Friendly Keyboard and Posture Right wrist support are a very complementary pair. The keyboard is solid and has a snappy click to each keystroke. The keyboard layout is easy to get used to and the multimedia shortcut keys work very well. The Mouse Friendly Keyboard is very compact making easy to fit on my keyboard drawer while allowing more room for my mouse. The comfort that the Posture Right wrist support offers helps complete this triad of ergonomic Evoluent peripherals.
Evoluent has hit on an area in the peripheral market that definitely needed some attention. With the personal computer being used more and more at work and at play, the need for comfortable and health oriented peripherals has become more important. Since repetitive stress disorders get worse with time and continued unhealthy practices, the sooner we start to use products better for us, the better off we’ll be.
