3M Ergonomic Mouse Review

Though it looks like an undersized joystick, the ergonomic mouse from 3M is really just an ordinary mouse with an unusual shape. It implements the vertical mouse idea in a unique and interesting way – but the location of the buttons may prove a problem for some.

Das Keyboard Review

Oh, cool. That was my first thought when I unpacked my review sample Das Keyboard – and in a way, those two words sum up the best things about it. If you’re a keyboard geek, it’s hard to do better than glossy black finish, blue lights, and, best of all, mechanical keyswitches that feel just […]

orbiTouch Keyless Keyboard and Mouse Review

The orbiTouch from Blue Orb (formerly Keybowl) is one of the strangest-looking creations ever to be called an input device. Compared to a keyboard and mouse, it’s inefficient and relatively slow. But for the handicapped or those with severe RSI, it’s a lifesaver, enabling many of these folks to communicate when they otherwise could not. […]

Typematrix 2030 Keyboard Review

If you’re a born minimalist or just somebody with a small desk, you can’t do much better than the TypeMatrix. It’s one of the smallest keyboards you can buy, yet includes almost all of the commonly used keys and a strikingly usable numeric keypad. Plus – if you listen to TypeMatrix – it’s ergonomically beneficial […]

Microsoft Natural 4000 Ergonomic Keyboard Review

Compared to the plain old keyboard that comes with most PC’s, the Microsoft Natural 4000 ergonomic keyboard is a big improvement. The price tag is under 35 bucks – but you get what you pay for.

AlphaGrip Review (iGrip)

Some input devices are so unconventional that they create and fill an entirely new class all their own. The AlphaGrip, also called the iGrip or just the Grip, is such a device. It combines the body of a game controller with the functions of both a trackball and a keyboard. Is it ergonomic? The manufacturer […]

Aerobic Mouse Review (AirO2bic mouse)

The Aerobic mouse improves the standard vertical mouse design by eliminating any need to grip the mouse. Combined with the recommended clickless mousing software, it is promoted as a “virtually hands-free mousing system.” Read on for my hands-on review.

Handshoe Mouse Review

The Hippus Handshoe mouse isn’t just big, it’s huge. It looks like a mouse that got melted onto a plastic dinner plate during a fire. Seriously, this thing dwarfs even my large Contour Mouse, and makes ordinary mice look like little bugs. Once you get over the shock of its size and start using the […]

Kinesis Advantage Keyboard Review

A radical departure from “normal” keyboard designs, the Kinesis Advantage is not generally the first stop on one’s ergonomic journey.  That’s okay, because more moderate designs can work with great effect.  If, however, other measures have failed, this may be a step you want to consider taking.  Read on for my take after having used […]

Evoluent Vertical Mouse Review

In my opinion, the Evoluent vertical mouse is probably what the standard “mouse” should look like, because it offers a high degree of ergonomic benefit and yet remains easy to use without special training. The Evoluent design simply takes an ordinary five-button scroll mouse and turns it on its side, untwisting the user’s wrist from […]

Contour Design Perfit Mouse Review

Right up front, you should be aware that the Contour Design Perfit Mouse has been my main pointing device for a number of happy years. No one knows better than me, however, that what is golden for one individual may be garbage for another. Consequently, I have made an effort to balance the many reasons why I […]
