Evoluent Vertical Mouse 3 (Rev 2)
Published: 2nd July 2007 | Source: Evoluent | Price: |Conclusion
The Evoluent Vertical Mouse 3 is a step in the right direction for mice. Instead of manufacturers churning out the same old thing it's about time someone tried to innovate in the input peripherals field. After all, the mouse is one of the most important devices on your PC really..with the keyboard, it's the primary way to interact with your PC.
The Vertical Mouse 3 is a mouse that is incredibly comfortable to use once you are used to it. It certainly reduces wrist and arm pain from using a mouse and is very ergonomic to use, especially with that extra finger button.
Whilst gaming is not the Vertical Mouse's strong-point, it does still manage a good turnout in gaming and adds something with that extra button.
Pricing is a little on the expensive side for $80 US on Evoluent's site, but then you do get a very good mouse for your money.
I would especially recommend the Evoluent Vertical Mouse if you are a sufferer of wrist/arm/finger pain as it does reduce this with it's ergonomic design.
The Evoluent Vertical Mouse get's an "Innovation Award" and a big "OC3D Recommended", for daring to do something different.
+ Great ergonomics
+ Solid gaming performance
+ Excellent for professional applications
+ Good looking
- On-the-fly DPI adjustment hard to use
- Thumb button is a little too easy to press
*Update from Evoluent*
"dpi adjustment can also be done by software: a mouse button or keyboard shortcut can be assigned to change the pointer speed. See the Pointer Speed tab in the Mouse Manager."
Thanks to Evoluent for the review sample
