Anker Wired Vertical Ergonomic Mouse

9901 Bluetooth speaker

Product Description

Prevent against painful cramping and soreness – without any sacrifice to performance – with this ergonomically designed vertical mouse from Anker

Increased Comfort

While normal horizontal mice place undue strain on the wrist, this model improves the navigating experience by employing basic ergonomic principles. Construction from lightweight plastic allows for easy movement, while the stock’s 45-degree angle encourages a healthy, neutral “handshake” position, which requires little time to get used to.

Unbeatable Value

With most similarly-designed mice costing anywhere from $50 to $100, the Anker vertical mouse provides a reasonable alternative to both experienced and inexperienced users of such devices. A warranty of 18 months, backed by Anker’s top-class customer support team, ensures that you can rest easy in the knowledge of your product’s durability.

Easy to Use

This USB mouse may be inserted directly into either your keyboard or computer and, due to plug & play technology, will be ready to use in no time. 1000 DPI resolution ensures a more responsive feel than most standard optical mice for smooth and precise tracking, while added Next/Previous buttons reduce effort during webpage browsing.

  • It took me about 5 minutes to get used to this mouse but I love it. My hand now rests on the right-most ball of my hand. I've ditched my old mouse pad entirely. I use Windows 7 and it was simple to plug in and start using immediately.

  • The mouse is comfortable to use, and looks nice. However, there is a severe issue: the scroll wheel skips around erratically, making it practically unusable.

  • Wish this came in a smaller size because it is just to big for someone with smaller hands. It would also help if it were made of a more grippier material since it is quite slippery. However, it is much better than using a regular mouse for carpal tunnel sufferers like myself.

  • I've been using the Evoluent vertical mouse for a while but so far I think that the Anker is better. The fit is better in my hand, the concave curve around the thumb makes it easier to pick up and reposition the mouse on a mouse pad. The convex shape of the Evoluent was one of my main complaints as it made it difficult to pick up the mouse.The one complaint I have about the Anker is that the buttons are a little stiff and requires a little more pressure to push than I like. The reason I got a vertical mouse to begin with is to relieve stress in my hand and wrist but the stiff buttons detracts from that a bit. It's not so bad that I would stop using it at this point but it's possible that it may get worse over time. There are instructions online on how to take apart the mouse and change the switches but it involves soldering so not for everyone.Overall I like the product very much and I would continue to choose Anker over Evoluent.

Customer FAQ

Q1.  What is DPI?
Dots per inch (DPI) is a measurement of the mouse's sensitivity. A high DPI setting will translate small movements of the mouse on your mouspad to very large movements of the cursor on the screen and can help improve mouse accuracy.
Q2.  What is polling rate?
Polling rate (or report rate) determines how often your mouse sends information to your computer. The number in Hz directly translates to the number of times each second the mouse send data to the computer.
Q3.  What factors are most important to take into consideration when buying a new gaming mouse?
There are two major factors to consider when choosing a gaming mouse: the way the mouse feels in your hand and its performance. As long as you feel comfortable when clicking, moving, and gripping the mouse, then it will be an appropriate choice. As for performance, you should take several key parameters into account, such as the number of function keys, DPI, polling rate, and customizability. Generally speaking, the higher the value of DPI and polling rate the faster the operating speed and accuracy of the mouse will be.
Q4.  Can I use the gaming mouse to replace my regular mouse?
Yes, absolutely. The gaming mouse is completely optimised, this means it can facilitate web browsing and use with any other software. By creating different profiles for different applications, you can use the gaming mouse to completely revolutionise the way you use your computer.
Q5.  Do I need drivers for my Vertical mouse to work?
No. It’s Plug and Play.
Q6.  How come the extra side buttons do not work on Mac?
The extra side buttons are only compatible with browsers running on Windows.
Q7.  Is there a left handed version of this mouse?
No, only right handed.
Q8.  How come the operating range is so poor sometimes?
This is an indication of low batteries. Please replace the batteries to fix the issue.
Q9.  What is the primary function of the extra side buttons?
They are used in browsers to move to forwards and backwards. Will work on Windows computers only.
Q10.  Are there size variations for this mouse?
No. We only have one standard size. 115 x 58 x 87 mm / 4.5 x 1.7 x 3.5in

My hands love it
I have terrible difficulty using mice as I have very little feeling in my hands and very little strength control. Regular mice are impossible to grip, to get hold of without looking nad to press the correct buttons.Not with this.It is easy to grip, not at all difficult to find the right button (and even better the scroll wheel).I am wondering how I did without one of these for so long.

Larger?

I just purchased one of these because I have wrist problems. So far I like it, even though it is too small for my hand. The position that is most comfortable in my hand unfortunately does not allow my to scroll the wheel. So actually this size seems like it would be be okay if the scroll wheel was move to the end Or to make one size fits most, if there were two wheels, one in front of the other. Is there a larger size?

I work in design, and just using this mouse I have though of how nice certain aspects are and small ways to improve it. One way is I noticed that the scroll button really click upward instead if inward. Yet, I think this causes of a little more strain. I think ideally it would click downward instead of upword or inward, yet that is the only direction that is locked and it cannot move.

In general, thanks for making a great, yet affordable, mouse. Perhaps if more people get them, you can offer a larger selection while maintaining the good price...I will do my part in promoting them!

It looks like the scroll wheel would be better placed and easier to access if it were placed on the side so it could be used by your thumb.

Quote From MikeC: I do agree with that. I rather have it scroll on the side and have a tilt scroll wheel for the back and forward buttons.

Hi

I am using since few days your Vertical Ergonomic Mouse and I am pretty happy, BUT the scrolling wheel is awfully hard to press.

I think you should improve this feature (unless it is a problem of my own mouse??)

Bye.

It really loosens up after a few uses. After a month, it's like butter. 

 

Try breraking it in some more. Or apply a little bit of silicon grease to it for faster results

5 months and still going strong

Very nice ergonomic mouse for casual use.

It's been 5 months and still working like a champ.

Feels so good.

 

I use this for casual browsing and the Anker 5000 DPI one for gaming

Do you receive any feedback that the mouse realizes that you pushed the DPI button? Typically the wheel will light up. I will test by making the mouse go in a circle and when I push the DPI button, the circles get bigger with the same mouse movement.

The mouse will be faster on screen. Try pressing the button and moving the mouse across the screen. You can see that it moves much faster. There should be 2 or 3 dpi settings, I forget as my mouse is at home atm

Each time you press the button the DPI will increase from 1000 to 1600 DPI. Can you explain other than that what you are expecting?

Great without a wrist rest
If you're dealing with RSI or any wrist/forearm issues, I recommend using the Anker Vertical Mouse without a wrist rest. I removed mine and it felt better immediately. The natural position of your hand around the mouse will feel most comfortable when your forearm and wrist are in a straight line with the mouse. For me, this was achieved when I lay my lower arm flat on the desk, which meant moving the mouse a bit further up on the desk surface. Very smooth mousing now!

Thanks for the suggestion. I don't have any wrist or forearm issues ... yet, but I hear a lot about them and would rather be cautious. I've eyed this mouse for quite a while and I'm still looking at real-life stories like yours. Comments like yours help a lot of people so thanks for taking the time to write it.

I gave this mouse and I have written a review on it on Amazon a while ago. It is extremely comfortable and I'm loving it after 5 months of constant use. No wrist pain or anything!

Good feedback. I don't know what wrist pain is, yet, but I don't want to purposely put myself through it. Wouldn't you know it, now that I decided to buy it tonight, it's out of stock. I can hang in there, though, once I see it in stock again I'll give it a try.

Mouse reboots on gaming computer
So when using this mouse with my gaming computer I noticed that the mouse will sometimes reboot itself when you hit the DPI button. I don't know if its something to do with my motherboard or the mouse. Not a big problem. I hardly press the DPI button anyway. Also another thing is that the blue light says one 24/7. I believe its on because its plugged in to a powered USB port. Other than that I love the mouse.

I think its the mouse updating/appling settings when you push the DPI button, like when a PC needs to reboot after updates or programs have been installed.

I agree with Loki sort of, it could a small glitch in the driver, let customer support know so they can fix it in the future so it is smooth operating!

This isn't a gaming mouse. At least for me it doesn't work that well

you should check out Anker's 5000 or 8000 DPI gaming mice. They rock! laugh
