I first purchased the Anker Vertical Mouse, but it had two issues that made it less comfortable for me. First, I have a crooked pinky, and with the Anker, it drags on the desktop at an unusual angle, and after a few hours becomes uncomfortably sensitive. Second, the left button on the Anker is a tad hard to click, and requires just a little too much force, so I have to tense a muscle in my palm every time I click, to "squeeze" the mouse.

This J-Tech eliminates both of those concerns. The way my hand rests on it supports my little finger off the desk, and the buttons are "softer" touch, and click more easily. I do notice that the "forward" and "back" buttons on the thumb side can be accidentally clicked if you are not paying attention, but I think this will just require some getting used to the ergonomics of this particular design.

Lastly, and possibly really important; when I first started using it, I noticed that the motion on the desktop (both the screen desktop and the actual top of my desk) was a tiny bit "jerky" when performing small precision moves regardless of the DPI setting. I tried moving the receiver and tried different mouse control panel settings, but nothing helped. Then I realized that the mouse ships with a layer of that protective, almost invisible, peel-off plastic protective film on each of the mouse sliding pads on the bottom of the mouse. Once I peeled that off, the action become much smoother and now I love this mouse. Duh! Who's "jerky" now? Haha!

This is mouse is great for people bored with trackballs. I was looking for comfort and something alternative to the normal mouse that caused fatigue. I found this gem and I enjoy it. I play guild wars 2 with no issues and the button placement is great for my needs. The one thing to watch out for that's a con with the highest DPI setting is too jittery. I got more precise movement with the 2nd DPI sensitivity level and then increasing the sensitivity to the max in Windows. I got much better performance that way. But for mild (non crazy twitchy shooter quick reflex gaming), This is the mouse for you. Also take note when using a wireless mouse have the receiver as close to your mouse as possible. I put the USB reciver on the front so it would not pick up as much signal noise from the back where all the cables are. Your results my vary:

PROS
- fantastically comfortable
- affordable
- good for casual/mild gaming
- wireless works well
- power saving features
- batteries included.

CONS
- Be careful of what mouse pad you use (cloth may now work well)
- highest DPI setting is not accurate. Software compensation needed
- Wireless (possible latency interference when gaming, keep dongle close).

This is an average joe reviewing an affordable product. I bought my own sample for my own personal use without any forced sponsorship in anyway.

ok so this is a game changer. Yes, it helps with the trigger finger I have been experiencing. After just 5 days the trigger finger seems gone completely. What this mouse does is put your hand in a natural relaxed position with plenty of room between the thumb and forefinger, and eliminates the thumb from controlling the mouse movement. Your hand rests naturally on the mouse, and the buttons are right where your fingers are. Button presses are very light but tactile. I have tried other ergo mice with negative results. On those, the hand was not in the rested position, and the thumb was pulled in tight so it had to grab the mouse. So the trigger finger was not eased at all. Also, the buttons I tried were hard to push, again unnatural. On this one, your hand just naturally sits over the mouse and the thumb can push several ways and is not squeezed. There was no learning curve whatsoever - it feels like I have been using it forever. As I said, your hand just fits over it naturally, and the buttons are where your hand expects them to be.
Also I had the opportunity to contact tech support for an issue I thought I had, but as usual, it was operator error. They were extremely responsive and spoke English. That was a pleasure.
So on the negative side, I wish the scroll wheel was better. The detents are too detenty,and seems slow to scroll. Maybe it feels plasticy, but certainly too heavy. Also, you sort of have to move your finger out of the natural state to reach it. But this is minor.. Also,minor, the dpi button doesnt seem to have much effect. This is really minor because the mouse is plenty responsive. One other thing, the sliders seem a little too free on the bottom. I had to change mouse pad to give it a little more resistance. This slippery-ness makes it a little hard to be accurate like when picking out a single letter to correct in a document. Because I tilt the mouse pad up a little, also for ergonomics, the mouse was sliding off my old mousepad. The other one I had is like a microfiber surface and works great.
It also would be nice to have a little software setup/config program to set the sensitivity of the scroll wheel, and maybe configure the buttons.
Please don't misunderstand the negatives. Now that I have tried it I don't expect to ever go back to the regular mouse, and if I got a new computer or moved jobs I would demand this one or bring my own. I am hoping j-tech reads these and uses the constructive criticism to improve it. If they do and come out with a version2, I will buy it.
Well done!

I have been using a traditional mouse at my desk job for just over a year now. Continually I have had issues with pain in my arm and hands and was looking for a solution. I came across this mouse and decided to give it a try. At first glance the mouse comes in a well presented packaging and comes with basic instructions as well as everything needed to get it up and running.
When first using the mouse it will take some getting use to as it has a different feel to it. My thumb does generally tend to lean on one of the back or forward buttons but with use I have gotten use to the grip. The quality of the product is very nice and has a good feeling in your hand. I have an average size hand for a male and have no issue with space for my fingers or palm when using. The adjustable sensitivity is a great easy to use feature included and allows for adjustment on the fly when using different applications.

For anyone looking for a great daily use mouse that provides a good deal of support with the attached palm rest, this is definitely a mouse for you. I would high suggest this mouse to any and really am enjoying the comfort it provides when continually using the computer.

Works well once installed. Lightweight, comfortable, has palm-heel rest (the reason I got this over other wireless Ergo Mice).

Short battery life when compared to other mice. The included AAA batteries lasted about 1 month - I have since replaced them with Duracells, however, so we'll see how those hold up. This isn't a big "yay" or "nay" - however some battery indication (LED light) might be a nice idea - the unit just stopped working out of the blue.

No documentation.

Why do you documentation? Well here's the thing: The unit will not work if you turn it on, plug it in, and then try to use it. I use this mouse at my office, and I have to unplug the unit when I'm done and stow it in my desk drawer as other people use the computer at work. Because of this I have found that you need to make sure the unit is "OFF", plug in the receiver, wait a moment or two for the PC to recognize the new hardware, and THEN power on the unit.

The lack of a battery indicator and the lack of documentation are the only reasons I did not give 5 stars. Otherwise this is an excellent wireless mouse for those of us who want to save our wrists.

Very responsive. I like where the buttons are located on both the left and right sides of the mouse (very intuitive). Didn't think I would like the rough feel of the grip on the mouse but I've come to prefer it over the smooth versions. For people who aren't used to a vertical mouse, it may take a bit to make the switch from the tradition mouse. It also has a good wide base (necessary for a vertical mouse) which means it's not going to "tip" over if you're like me and you are constantly reaching over your mouse in a hurry to go for your keyboard and then back again; your mouse may move a bit but it's not going to tip over or go sailing across the room. It also has a sturdy feel to it; no, I wouldn't recommend giving it a Forged and Fire "strength test" or anything but... she looks pretty durable.

It has an additional pad added to it -- supposedly to help with ergonomics. It is removable (simply snaps on and off). Because of how my desk is set up I found the extension got in the way and took it off.

Another feature that I like (that I should mention), is that the usb has a place to be stored when you are not using this mouse with your computer. Don't know how many times I've lost a usb and/or couldn't figure out how to keep component 1 with its corresponding usb (invariably I'd get it mixed up with component 2, 3 and/or 4 that I was storing as backups for when things break). This usb's storage spot is on the underside of the mouse (which is where you'll find it when you open the package). A nice extra added feature that, quite frankly, I wish more companies would do.

About the only down side to this is that you really can't tell when you've changed the DPI. In other words, while it has the button on the top and it says that it has three speeds, there is no real way for you to know what speed your in or that it's changed (without having another piece of software/hardware from a third party to do this). J-Tech should have had this as part of the mouse and this is my one complaint about the product.

I'm on a computer (not much keyboard work, mostly point-and- click) 8 to 10 hours a day for work, and had developed carpal tunnel syndrome. By mid-afternoon, half of my right hand would be stinging so badly it would be hard to move it.

This mouse just arrived today, and already my hand is more comfortable. Easy to install, just plug the little USB receiver into a USB port in your laptop, and you're ready to go. No need to manually install any drivers. It puts my hand in a more natural position, and the palm rest makes it so that to move the mouse, I move my whole arm instead of just moving my hand around in different directions and irritating my wrist.

It's a little awkward though, maybe designed for a bigger hand (so Trump can't use it LOL), with the right and left click buttons a bit far apart, and my thumb falling on a "back page" button such that I end up inadvertently going back a page even when I don't want to. Maybe I'll get used to it...

I've tried different ergonomic mouses and this is the one that works for me. It's lightweight, easy to use, and the customer service is wonderful.

After using the mouse for 5 months the cursor suddenly became stuck at the bottom of the screen. I called J-Tech's tech support line and got right through to someone. He asked me a few questions and determined that the sensor was bad. He asked a few more questions and asked for my Amazon order number. Long story short, in two days a brand new shiny mouse was in my mailbox for free.

The one bad thing about this mouse is that when I click and drag to select text I have to grip the mouse just a bit tighter. When I do that it is really easy to hit the back button with my thumb. It's a nuisance because I select text often.

The mouse comes with a plate that juts out to the back from the bottom. It's easy to take off, thank goodness. I have a wrist rest attached to my mouse pad and it was too large and kept bumping against the rest.

3 stars or 4. Hmmm. I'm confused by this mouse. I have severe shoulder, neck, wrist and finger pain in both hands, and have been forced to more often use my left hand (i'm a righty) just to give the right a break. So I'd prefer to have a lefty option, but that is not available. The major problem i have with regular mice is that my little end fingers try to clutch the mouse to stay in control of it. And mice have gotten so tiny these days that there is too little to grab. I am a woman with a small hand. I think this mouse is made for my size, and seems like it would be difficult for people with larger hands to use comfortably.

As a right handed mouse it doesn't seem to orient to my hand right. If I put the mouse in my hand as shown in the pictures - with my thumb firmly over the thumb area and fingers set about where the buttons are, I have to twist my wrist backwards in order for North South East West to be correct (like move the cursor correctly up, down, left, right). Picture pointing thumb straight out so that it makes a straight line down your arm. Then fingers to backwards to wrap around. That puts a lot of stress on my shoulder and strains through the back of my fingers.

If I rotate the mouse so it's not in exactly the right position on my hand but is in the right place North-South-East-West wise, it sits comfortably under my fingers BUT I can't scroll because the bar is basically where a ring on my middle finger would sit (because it's rotated 45 degrees). Far too low to move my finger to scroll.

If I can find a way to reorient the directional, this mouse would have a lot of potential. It would be a much better mouse and a much more natural position if the pointy end was set to NorthWest instead of due North.

Accuracy wise it seems very good. It's precise, and doesn't skip around like some cheap mice. It auto-detected really fast on both PCs and worked right off the bat. I'm not sure the dpi button is doing anything (on my other mouse it makes the cursor very slow, but I don't see a noticeable difference here). On the mousepad it moves fairly freely, but with just enough friction to allow you to stay in control.

I haven't had it long enough to say if it will help with my pain. I wasn't expecting much out of this, so I'm pleasantly surprised so far.

Keep in mind that with any mouse of any type, if you want any precision you need to steady part of your arm and hand on the desk while mousing. On this mouse your hand sits on the mouse, so for precision I have to lean my forearm or edge of my hand onto the mousepad.

I think this has potential. Worth a try if you have pain.

I am an engineer and do lots of computer work every day. Normally around 7-10 hours a day. Before I switched to a vertical mouse, I was starting to have wrist and arm pain after a full day of work. This has fixed all the pain and can run all day no sweat!

WORD OF CAUTION!!!! This mouse is not for someone with large hands!! I have medium to small hands for a guy and it's fits me great! However, other guys in the office that try my mouse like it but complain that is to small. That doesn't effect how the mouse works but does effect how a user might like it!

I tried a friends Evolent mouse before I bought this and it was the best programmable, vertical mouse money can buy. However, this mouse fixes arm and wrist pain at a fraction of the cost so I went with this mouse. No complaints! It's highly accurate like I need and since it isn't programmable, you just use the regular Windows mouse settings to configure how you want it to run.
