[Amazon.ca] Anker Wireless Vertical Ergonomic Mouse 30% off

Deal of the day at amazon and it's the all-time low for this vertical mouse.
You can certainly get similar price with other (less reputable) brands or going wired or ordering directly from China but this is a good deal.
If you're wondering why would you need a vertical mouse read this.

I have this mouse and can vouch for it's performance. Good price!

Couple points about it's design/usability:
1) Not great for people with smaller hands.
2) You may knock it over from time to time given how tall it is.
3) Probably not the most accurate for serious gamers.

I had this mouse and all I can say is you get what you paid for. For $20 its a good entry in to the ergo mouse world, but the build quality is pretty low. The buttons on mine got all finicky after a few months.

I have the same mouse and have been using it a couple of years now for work. I love it, all buttons work well and fits my hand.
Knocked it over several times, I am glad I am not the only one...

Delux is a better brand for vertical mouse imo

Still a good deal

the tracking is horrible on this mouse, it does not move smoothly unless you have a really flat and smooth surface, I stopped using it

I own this mouse and purchased it while dealing with serious wrist and forearm tendonitis. It's ok but I felt like I had to constantly hold my arm up or put all the weight of it on the bottom of my palm near the wrist. The build quality is alright and the mouse is light for the $20. I switched back to logitech trackballs instead because I could get one for $40 instead of paying $100+ to try logitech's vertical mouse.

Since most people are probably using this on a desk or table, that shouldn't be an issue. What surface were you using it on, out of curiosity?

Was gonna get this and use it on my kid's sand table. I guess I will have to keep looking.

I've had mine for a couple years now and it's great. Receiver needs to be decently close but otherwise works great. Batteries last about 6 months or so.
Haven't had any issues with the buttons and I use it daily.

I have this mouse. It's "OK" at best as you really get what you pay for. My problem with it is the scroll wheel. Every time I use it it would go backwards and then forwards and was driving me crazy. Had to pay the Logitech price but at least it works well.

I had the original, left a meh review and anker sent me this newer one. Same dislike in both really, weighs nothing. And with such a vertical ergo hand position it needs to feel more substantial than a feather .

I have been using the sanwa wired vertical mouse for the last few months. Really comfy and great. The vertical set up is a lot more comfortable to me and closer to my natural wrist position. Didn't take long to get used to and is now my prefered mouse style.

The standard mouse set up makes my wrist really sore after some gaming or scrolling. Probably due to old injuries. The other day I set up my old Corsair M65 on the simracing setup and it felt weird as hell.

I've had this for about 2 months - works great and my muscle pain is much better. I'm sure it'll take longer for pain to completely disappear

How do you find the Logitech trackballs? Are they really more comfortable over a long period versus a traditional mouse?

I gave this vertical mouse a try when work from home started in March, but gave up after about 3 weeks of use.

Pros:
- If you have wrist pains, this will help alleviate it
- Inexpensive

Cons:
- Frustration with its design flaw and usability (you get what you paid for)
- When you attempt to click, you'll "pull the cursor" down slightly and likely miss click, due to the mouse being too light or not big enough. To compensate, it forces you to firm up your grip around the mouse to produce an accurate click.
- The vertical motion on my mouse is "slanted" when you move up and down; off by about 10 degrees; had to bend my wrist inward to correct it or compensate your vertical mouse movement accordingly. But doing so becomes more awkward because with a vertical mouse, you rely less on your wrist mobility and more on your arm mobility for mouse movement.

I recommend spending more and get an Evolouent vertical mouse (what I use for work for past 9+ years).

For $20 you can't go wrong. I have this and an Evoluent ergo mouse and the Evoluent is far superior to this Anker however it is also 6 times the money.
