I had a wired version of this mouse. I work with computers 8hrs a day, so I feel competent to comment. The mouse is simply too large. The buttons need to be pressed at the very end (far end). Otherwise it requires a coniderable force to press it. Then, because the mouse is vertical, you apply the force sideways. That causes the coursor to move before you actually press it.
I stopped using it. Vertical mice are good but this one is not.
I got one from lidl (there are other brands of the same lidl one) and it is pefect. I use it daily.

I bought this same model to try out in the last six or so weeks off my last job, a desk job where all day was spent at a computer; having never used an ergo mouse before, I found this one surprisingly easy to adapt to and switched immediately. Sure, I was a little put off by the lack of weight and it felt more plasticky than the usual offerings from Anker but the actual usability was good. Didn't find the same issue with the buttons and 'dead spots' which you've mentioned and found use of the mouse to be pretty natural, which I didn't expect. Shame the receiver got lost trying to get back home to me, really.

Honestly, the abuse mine gets... I move my hand back to the mouse once I'm done typing and I beast it right across the desk.

Sorted my painful elbow out though.

Having a look at other Anker stuff, amazon.co.uk/dp/…4XN

£10.99 for the wired version of this ergonomic mouse.

Strange, I have this one (wired verison) amazon.co.uk/gp/…c=1

and I haven't had any issues with having to press buttons at the very end or requring consierable force. I even play hours of FPS gaming with it a week and no issues with it at all. Maybe I have quite large hands though?
Use the wired version for work 6+ hours a day. I think it’s great.

Couldn’t imagine using it for gaming, but I’m impressed by those who can!
Great price. Heated and ordered. Thanks.

I've had the exact same problem. My hands are on the smaller side, and I struggled with it for the first few days. But I guess it's the muscle memory since, I've not felt as frustrated since as I had earlier. I think my thumb learned to apply the counterforce to keep the cursor where it should be. But I agree that it's definitely better for larger handed people.

I'm still using this mouse everyday for about 6-7 hours only because I haven't found a better one that suits my hand. I should check out the Lidl one you mentioned. Got a link to share? Thanks.
My hands are smallish, measure 19cm (base to tip of longest finger) x 9cm (largest width ignoring thumb) and I've had this mouse for many years and it's still comfortable to use. This is chopper grip so some curved less pronounced mice maybe more comfortable for wider hands but this still does the business. I've even played FPS games and it's comfortable, although I recommend dedicated mice for avid gamers.

The only downside is after about 3 years the outer layer starts peeling, this is a common problem but clean it down with water and microfibre it will continue to hold up.

I just measured mine after your comment, lol. Mine is 18.2cm X 8cm, so I guess 1cm does make a big difference! Hopefully these numbers will help others to choose appropriately

I've had mine for about a month now. I still end up leathering it across my desk when I move my arm back and forth as this mouse is about an extra inch taller than the one it's replacing. I also regularly end up pressing the DPI adjustment and back/forward buttons, in one case losing an entire webpage of filled in forms.

But, it solved the problem I was having with my elbow hurting as I'm no longer twisting my arm to use a standard horizontal mouse, so in that regard it passes the test.
I have this mouse.
My hands are small, 18cm long by measurement method above & the mouse is fine for me.
The buttons on the mouse are very long and can be pressed on over 50% of their length. So it would probably be OK if I lost half a finger.
I have this mouse since they gave me a similar one at work around this time last year. Solved my rsi in my wrist and didn’t take too long to get use to either. Can’t imagine going back to a regular mouse anymore.
I use this mouse, and the version before (that eventually failed)... For the money, the ergonomics are great... If you suffer any golfer/tennis elbow and work a long time in front of screens... do it. Your arms will thank you.

It is tall, and yep - it does often go shooting across the desk. But no biggie.

I bought this a few months ago when it was posted here. Takes a short while getting used to it, but I now no longer have any RSI pain in my hand/wrist, so it's definitely achieved what I bought it for.
i had one of these too but returned it due to the reason mentioned above was simply too big. Changed over to a mx master(not a fair comparison but its a lot nicer to use!)

Cheap and plasticky is exactly what it looks like from the pictures, especially the one of the bottom of the mouse.

I used to knock mine over all the time, I now knock it over only slightly less often...
Spoiler: it costs more than £10 to get a high-quality mouse. This is just a cheap imitation of the Logitech MX Master 3.
Been using this for over 4 years now, amazing product and has totally eliminated wrist pains. It is bit odd to use this if you haven't used a vertical mouse before, but give it a few hours and it'll become natural. Only downside is its a bit on the bigger side

Think she's spotted it, just... yeah, that's right sweetheart. ERGONOMIC MANAGEMENT MOUSE
I have two jobs both working with computers and get really bad wrist pains and my wrist locking up, bought one of these but a different brand (Jelly Comb wireless bluetooth version) and been using it for a few months and took a while to use but the pains and wrist locks have gone and feels more natural to use this mouse now.

Switched back to a regular mouse the other day for a few hours and pains came back.

I'm not saying they'll be a cure for everyone, but from my experience you get a funny look using them but have worked wonders for me.

Hahaha, same here, mine has flown off the desk a few times :-)
I have one of these too. Helped relieve capital tunnel syndrome to the point where I can do without the surgery. I also have a Microsoft sculpt keyboard which is excellent except for the separate numerical keypad just ends up away from the rest of the keyboard.
I had tendonitis from excessive badminton and mouse use. Got this years ago as regular mice were causing discomfort and it's been great! Also, people are less inclined to 'take the wheel' on your PC when you have a weird mouse.

I also work with computers 8+ hours a day and I've been using this mouse for about the last year. I also have small hands and in addition I also suffer from carpel tunnel syndrome, which I think is my qualification to comment .

Funnily enough I find this mouse fantastic. The whole idea is that your fingers are supposed to lie flat across the mouse without curling your fingers at all. For me, with my small hands, my fingers fall in exactly the right place with a bit of space to spare, so it'd also be suitable for larger hands. If I use a standard mouse, I get carpel tunnel pain, and with this one, I get none of that, so it definitely takes the pressure off where it counts.

I'd say that, unfortunately, bodies are so variable, that no size for ergonomic stuff is going to fit all, but on top of that, the comment about it not being any good for smaller hands definitely should be taken with a pinch of salt. To be honest at this price, I'd suggest to give it a go...! As @tarcamion says though - your milage may vary...
Another product that is only suitable for right-handed people. And looking at the manufacturers response on the Q&A of the product they couldn't care less either.

Given the current world we live in, it seems odd that left handed people can still be discriminated against and not an eyelid is batted
Great mouse, much better for your wrist and elbow than a conventional one. Takes a couple of weeks getting used to, but well worth the effort.
Looking through my amazon orders I can see I bought this in April 2017 and it's still going strong. I don't think I have particularly large hands but maybe OP has very small hands. Buttons are easy to press and battery life is great. The comments from
dkl_uk and jammydav93 are spot on in that you will swat the mouse off the wall now and again as it's higher than a usual mouse so you tend not to raise your hand high enough if you keep items to the right of your mouse and *boom* you hit it against the wall. Luckily I'm used to to that now but nothing in OP's description rings trued for me. Great mouse, no more sore arm and working after 3 years. Might get a backup as this may die soon after the abuse it's been through
