Goldtouch Semi-Vertical Mouse Review

The Goldtouch Semi-Vertical Mouse we’re looking at today is not to be confused with the Goldtouch Comfort Mouse, which I reviewed a few years ago. This new offering from Key Ovation is more nearly vertical than the old Comfort Mouse, has more buttons, and adds a removable palm rest. Let’s take a look.

Is the Swiftpoint GT Mobile Mouse the Best Mobile Mouse Ever?

Swiftpoint GT Mouse

Swiftpoint GT Mouse combines intuitive touch gestures with the precision and convenience of a mouse. Some have proclaimed the Swiftpoint GT to be the best mobile mouse available. While I can’t speak to that, I’ll say this much: If I were a maker of mobile mice, I wouldn’t want to try to compete with it […]

Evoluent Vertical Mouse C Review

It’s been six years since I first reviewed the Evoluent vertical mouse. Since then the Evoluent has undergone some expected generational revisions, but its core design principle of the “natural” handshake position for mousing remains the same. I recently got the opportunity to acquire a latest-gen Evoluent vertical mouse, called the VerticalMouse C, and I’ve […]

Newtral2 Mouse Review

The Newtral2 ergonomic mouse is, in a sense, several mice in one. Though it has no moving parts for adjustment, this mouse comes with a number of magnetic interchangeable pieces that give it different shapes and features.

A blog commenter recently asked how to clean a RollerMouse Free, so I reached out to Contour Design for some guidance.

Mycestro Gesture Mouse Review

Some time ago, I reviewed a meteoric gesture device called the Ion Wireless Air Mouse. I found it an interesting toy, but inaccurate and hard to use for real work. While the Ion appears to have gone away for good, there’s a new kid on the block of gesture-based pointing devices. It’s called the Mycestro. […]

Penclic Desktop Review – Mouse, Keyboard, And NiceTouch

If you spend much time following ergonomics on Twitter (what, you don’t?) it’s hard to miss the presence of Penclic. This European manufacturer makes, and heavily promotes, a mouse that looks like a pen stuck to its inkwell. As you may recall, I’ve reviewed that mouse before.

Palm Rests, Arm Supports, And The RollerMouse Red

Getting a new computer peripheral is kind of like getting married. Between here and happily-ever-after, you find yourself buying all kinds of accessories you never thought of before you made the commitment. Such is the case, to some degree, with the Contour RollerMouse Red. To be sure, it works fine with just the standard palm […]

Rockstick2 Ergonomic Mouse Review

In 2013, it was my pleasure to review the Rockstick Mouse, a click-free ergonomic mouse that resembles a joystick, but has trouble hitting much of anything with precision. Evidently, Rockstick mouse developer Jianbo Deng wasn’t too unhappy with my write-up of his product, as he volunteered to send me a review sample of its second […]

Microsoft Sculpt Ergo Keyboard And Mouse Review

When most people say “ergonomic keyboard,” what they’re envisioning is a Microsoft-style curved model such as the popular Natural 4000. As discussed elsewhere, the Natural 4000 has significant shortcomings such as its size and key action. Because of these I have long hoped that Microsoft would introduce a more worthy successor to the world’s most […]

Oyster Mouse Review

Adjustable ergonomic mice are rare. Even Goldtouch – whose motto is “If it isn’t adjustable, it isn’t ergonomic” – puts their logo on a mouse that is in no way adjustable. At best, ergo mice sometimes come in different sizes. Contour, which offers its eponymous rodent in more sizes than some tee shirts, is the […]
