The mouse has five buttons [back, forward, DPI, left click, and right click] and a scroll wheel. At a glance, this right-handed mouse looks as if made of a matte-black rubber; however, it is made of plastic. The scroll wheel is made of a tempered ABS material and it makes it more resistant than the regular plastic used on other mice. The lower price point doesn’t deter from its effectiveness. It’s ready to use right out of the box; simply plug it in and it’s ready!
This mouse is equipped with a DPI button that allows you to adapt it to your needs [1000, 1600, 2400, 3200 DPI’s (Dots per Inch)]. However for me it doesn’t really play an important role. DPI’s essentially is how sensitive the mouse is; or rather, the higher the DPI the farther the cursor on your screen will move when you move your mouse. This feature is more crucial for gamers and for those involved in graphics. Good to note: this mouse is compatible with Windows and Mac OS X.
The AnthroDesk Wired Ergonomic Vertical Mouse has an LED light indicator. It glows green, pink, blue, and red depending on your DPI configuration. While the LED light indicates the DPI configuration, some say that the LED lights can assist you to find it in the dark. This would be useful for students who stay in a dorm room but share it with another student … just imagine being on different schedules and having to stay up late to do homework while your room mate has to get some sleep!
The shape of the vertical mouse is sculpted to fit your hand, as if you had it extended to shake someone’s hand. This makes for a comfortable position; it reduces the potential for wrist pain and strain because your arm isn’t twisted as it is with the use of a traditional mouse.
I have carpal tunnel syndrome and after using the AnthroDesk Wired Ergonomic Vertical Mouse I can say that I have really noticed an immense difference! The vertical position is ergonomic which makes it comfortable for anyone to use, and especially for those who spend long hours at their computer, or for those who already have health concerns.
Overall, the AnthroDesk Wired Ergonomic Vertical Mouse is an excellent economical choice. If I were to make any changes it would be to suggest that it not be made as lightweight as it is. When I click the left button it’s difficult to hold the mouse still. Perhaps it’s just me? I just think that if it had a little more weight that it might make it feel more substantial and therefore make it easier to hold it still while clicking the buttons.
