NAME Logitech MX Vertical wireless mouse

WHAT IT DOES The mouse is built with an ergonomic design to reduce injuries such as forearm strain and wrist pressure.

COST $99.99

AVAILABLE FROM logitech.com

WHAT’S HOT The design is a natural handshake position, and it has a 57-degree vertical angle, reducing muscular activity up to 10 percent compared to an everyday mouse. The comfort of the MX Vertical is like night and day compared to a standard mouse. Included software is easy to program and customize all the features you expect and need, including left and right buttons for clicking and a smooth, clicking scroll wheel. Wirelessly, the mouse can be used with the included USB dongle or Bluetooth.

On the bottom is a button to switch the channel, which is great if you use multiple computers. You can even copy and paste between computers.

The left side has a thumb rest, and your other fingers are positioned on the right with each having easy access to the controls.

With the internal battery you should get about four months of use; if it runs out in the middle of work, a one-minute charge will get you running for three hours.

It's impossible to say if it's the best mouse you'll ever try, but with all its features, it has to be near or at the top.

WHAT'S NOT The ergonomic design will probably take some getting used to. Once you do, you'll never go back to a traditional mouse.
