Anker Wired Vertical Ergonomic Mouse

HUB - 68ANHUB-B10A - 4.3-4.30

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.

Customer Reviews

  • Happy customer
  • Very happy with this product. I've only used Evoluent in the past, but needed something quickly and cheaply. Anker is significantly cheaper, but you won't notice a quality difference (at least in my humble opinion). I'm thrilled with this mouse and actually bought a wireless version, too.

  • pretty good
  • this is a pretty nice mouse, but it's an extreme version of a vertical mouse. I used it but did not feel it was right for me after a short period of time I have discovered the microsoft sculpt ergonomic mouse. It's incredible. I've had very bad hand pain for years but I can use the microsoft mouse all day long with NO PAIN. The secret is that it's like holding a ball in your hand, and you can constantly change your holding position while still making standard mouse moves. check it out: Sculpt Ergonomic Mouse by Microsoft. You will love it.

  • Great Releif!
  • Considering the price and this new way to put your hand, this is a great solution to avoid and prevent carpal tunnel. It's like using a mouse but it force you to set your hand in a better positoin. Great product! I really like it!

  • Great Mouse, Great Comfort
  • I have to say, I as a bit skeptical about a mouse of this price, but I was pleasantly surprised. The mouse was nicely packaged and arrived on time (Coming from Anker Direct). I was able to get it out of the package and plug it in without having to install any drivers on Windows 8.1 or OSX Mavericks. One thing to note is the back and forward buttons don't work out of the box with OSX, Quality: The quality of the mouse is excellent. The weight seems appropriately balanced and the texture doesn't feel strange on my hands. It remains cool to the touch for the length of time that I use it. The mouse click buttons have a nice solid click feel and the scroll wheel works well. The only thing about the scroll wheel I would comment on is feels a bit too round on my finger. I prefer a more flat scroll wheel. Comfort: This has completely removed any discomfort I've had using a traditional mouse. I recommend this for anyone who has wrist discomfort. The mouse fits my hand perfectly. I have big hands, so it's important that the mouse is big enough to fit my entire hand. Great product Anker!

  • A little small
  • the mouse is cool and responsive, I use the computer a lot as a college student and after using a mouse for awhile I get hand cramps. I've been using it for a couple of days and it hasn't given me any problems.

Customer FAQ

Q1.  What is DPI?
Dots per inch (DPI) is a measure of spatial printing or video dot density, in particular the number of individual dots that can be placed in a line within the span of 1 inch (2.54 cm). For example, when DPI is set to be 400, the cursor will move by 400 dots for every inch the mouse is moved.
Q2.  What is polling rate?
Polling rate (or report rate) determines how often your mouse sends information to your computer. Measured in Hz, this setting equates to lag time (in ms). If the polling rate is set at 1000Hz, the mouse cursor will be updated every 1 millisecond.
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 to performance, you should take several key parameters into account, such as the number of function keys, DPI, FPS, transfer rate, and customizability. Generally speaking, the higher the value of DPI, FPS, and transfer 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, of course. The gaming mouse is equipped with customizable buttons which facilitate webpages viewing, and is able to track your move more precisely. By adjusting the gaming mouse to different applications, you can use the gaming mouse either in gaming or daily common use.
Q5.  Does this come in a left-handed version?
Unfortunately, there is no left-handed version for this vertical mouse at the moment.
Q6.  Does this vertical mouse have programmable buttons?
Unfortunately, there is no driver to program the mouse buttons.

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!

Really it's small? I think it's pretty fair size and I have large hands.

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

Adjusting DPI
I am trying to adjust the DPI. But when I press the DPI button on the mouse, nothing happens. What am I doing wrong?

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!

Nice recommendation, it seems like it would be a lot more comfortable than a traditional mouse

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

After suffering with RSI, I bought an ergonomic keyboard, but didn't think for a minute there would be an alternative to the standard "horizontal" mouse. Looking at several different mice from several manufacturers, I settled on the Anker. Delivery was quick and I started using my "vertical" mouse. Yes it took a bit of getting used to, but after a couple of days it feels completely natural to use, so much so in fact, I find using a traditional mouse very odd indeed. I did have problems with the scroll wheel not working correctly. Anker replaced the mouse with no problem or quibble and answered my emails promptly and courteously. Thanks to my vertical mouse and ergonomic keyboard the pains in my hands and fingers have pretty much subsided and I feel more comfortable at work. If you are in the market for a comfortable mouse try the Anker .
