Boght this last month, tried to use it for a n hour and i hated it...really takes getting used to... i switched back to a regular mouse.. I just started using it again...

Annoying thing is that you have to really hold it when clicking otherwise mouse moves.. normally when you click, you push down and the table holds it still, with the vertical, you need to provide the force to prevent your clicks from moving the mouse... if that makes sense.

I have the wireless version of both styles of Anker vertical mice, and the second one (wireless) listed at $12.99 is the good one, in my humble opinion. I would get another one at this price, but I already have 3. They are great, other than the scroll wheel starts to wear out after a couple years, which is acceptable given the low price.

Second that on the wireless vertical mouse. $13 is a good price point.

For those who have used these, do they help a lot with strain on hand/wrist? I've been trying to decide between this mouse (the wireless version) or a Logitech M570 wireless trackball. I've used the Logitech one some at work, and it works pretty well (I really like the trackball) - I may still have some aching in my hand, but definitely less carpal tunnel type pain. Wondering if the vertical style may offer better relief or not. For $12 I may buy it to try anyways, but hoping someone here may have some input.

This type of mouse actually works. I used mine for about 6 months, no more wrist pain when I twist the palm from side to side. I bought the "Wishlotus" brand wireless mouse, it has same design but different button layout.

I much prefer the M570 because it requires less movement. Also helps to get a Trackman Marble for the left side, and alternate between the two.

I also have this wireless mouse - Amazon tells me I bought it about a year and a half ago for $13.59. Very happy with it - I use it daily at work, and the scroll wheel on mine is still going strong.

I'd say it helps with wrist strain, but maybe doesn't help a lot. I find this semi-vertical position more natural and less straining, but ANY position/motion that's this repetitive will cause stress. The only thing I've found that actually helps is to get up and move! Try to take breaks, even for a few seconds to stretch hands, wrists, shoulders, and back.
I tried a trackball similar to the M570 for a while, and didn't find it any better than the vertical mouse. There is a possible benefit that you can set it on your lap or vary the position more, but I didn't find this to be very helpful overall. YMMV of course!
