3M Ergonomic Mouse Review:
Most people will immediately think of the old Atari joystick during the 80s upon seeing the 3M Ergonomic Mouse. Like that video game controller, this one can also take immense punishment of prolonged use. Just don’t press the buttons too hard as thumbs can be quite strong and it might sink the buttons in. The handle does not move unlike the old joystick but instead the optical sensor at the bottom acts just like a standard mouse for moving the cursor. This even makes it more beneficial to people with wrist pain. And if all of the above still isn’t enough, 3M is even giving a 2-year warranty!
There is just this exciting feel when using this mouse even though you are just surfing an a nice funny blog. You don’t have to get annoyed as it will surely be fun getting used to it. Using the 3M Ergonomic Mouse is a guaranteed joy.
The 3M Ergonomic Mouse will unquestionably deliver good results in taking away wrist pain. The wrist stays in one position and only the thumb does the hard work. Although a few have addressed that their thumbs get worn out instead overtime. But mainly because it is also due to overuse and over repeating pressure on thumb clicking. Also please note, this mouse is only fit for right hand usage, hence may not be able to help Carpal Tunnel Syndrome victims who use their left.
Overall, the 3M Ergonomic Mouse is a magnificent joystick wonder many brands are saying… “Why haven’t we thought of this?”
