The New Wireless DXT Mouse: A Review

In the months since I reviewed the original DXT mouse, it has replaced the Contour as my full-time pointing device. So, when the long-awaited DXT2 appeared with its wireless version, I was excited to try it out. I’m not going to re-hash the core benefits of the DXT in this article, so if you need […]

Microdesk Review

A few weeks ago I was doing some editing, working from a manuscript in a three-ring binder. After laboring for about an hour with the binder parked off to the left on my desk, I found myself with a disaster-scale crick in my shoulder that lasted for days. Unfortunately, this editing episode took place before […]

Penclic Mouse Review

Perhaps you’ve heard of Penclic, the pen-mouse “hybrid” out of Scandinavia. I recently obtained a sample of this smart and stylish device. It’s a cute idea. I don’t consider it terribly beneficial compared to any other ergonomic mouse alternative, but it at least beats a laptop touchpad for portable use.

Contour RollerMouse Re:d Review

If you’ve read this blog for very long, you may know that I am a fan of the Contour RollerMouse, a remarkable revolution in pointing devices. When I reviewed the RollerMouse Free last year, I could barely stop talking about it. I had less to say about the older Pro model, but still found it […]

Contour RollerMouse Pro Review

Last year, I reviewed Contour’s RollerMouse Free, a very different type of pointing device that impressed me greatly. At the time, I didn’t understand that the Free is actually the second-generation RollerMouse. The first-generation model is called the Pro, and it is still very much available, offering features and benefits of its own.

Rockstick Mouse Review

Update: The original Rockstick mouse has been superseded by a new model; see my review here. Just when I think I’ve seen everything in the world of ergonomic peripherals, something new pops up. For the following discovery, I am personally indebted to Tim Brogden, whose casual Twitter mention sent me off on the trail of […]

DXT Ergonomic Mouse Review

A couple of years ago, I wrote that the Evoluent vertical mouse “is probably what the standard ‘mouse’ should look like.” I have now found another model that I think is even closer to this ideal: The DXT precision mouse from City Ergonomics. Here’s why.

Dragon NaturallySpeaking Review

I am speaking – not typing – this sentence into my computer, which is a new experience. For a long time I have been curious about hands-free computing with voice control. The gold standard in this area, of course, is Dragon NaturallySpeaking – so I finally contacted Nuance Software and received a free sample.

Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Keyboard Review

Microsoft recently announced the latest addition to their lineup of computer hardware: The Sculpt Comfort Keyboard. Thanks to the efficiency of Redmond’s PR team, I had a sample in hand within a few days of requesting it. The Sculpt isn’t exactly a one-keyboard revolution in typing, but it incorporates some solid features into a comfortable […]

Goldtouch Go Portable Ergonomic Keyboard Review

While there are many different ergonomic keyboards on the market, hardly any are suited to portable use. Standard curvy models like the MS 4000 are too big to fit in a laptop bag (though that doesn’t keep some people from trying). The Kinesis Freestyle is compact enough, but its multiple pieces make for an awkward […]
