Anker 2.4G Wireless Vertical Ergonomic Optical Mouse Review


Anker were formed in 2008 by a few ex-Google employees with a passion for technology. They spent their time looking for ways to make life easier not just for themselves, but for everyone by providing reliable, affordable products that were pleasing on the eye.

Today I will be taking a look at something different, from their ergonomic range which is designed for reducing strain associated with using keyboards, mice and other peripherals. With the need for comfort in the workplace and generally everywhere else too, there are plenty of products out there which can help reduce strain, from GUNNAR glasses all the way to wrist rests. Today we have a mouse that fits the description but how is it going to fare in my capable hands?

The product in particular I will be looking at is the Anker 2.4G Wireless Vertical Ergonomic Optical Mouse. First, for a look at the specifications…

  1. What a terrible review. It is blatantly obvious that you want to have your cake AND eat it without having to pay for it of course.

    The equivalent of this vertical mouse cost at least 3-4 times more, and yet from the very beginning you are complaining about the cheap packaging and lack of included batteries.

    You had already pre-decided to NOT like this mouse before you ever put your hand on it.

    First of all the packaging is clear and no nonsense. It protects the mouse, prevents theft of any parts from an individual product. What exactly is your problem with the packaging? Are you one of those hipsters who require a “premium feel” to every bit of tat they deign to lower their royal selves to analyse?

    Second there are very sensible reason for NOT including batteries with devices with long battery life expectations such as these: a) affordable products like this are likely to be produced, stored, shipped and take significant periods of time before getting anywhere near the end customer, by which time the batteries will be nowhere near optimal when you get them, thus giving a substandard impression to the first set of batteries.

  2. In all honesty, aside from gliding over the obvious non constructive cricisim, when I purchase a product I expect it to work out of the box without the need to purchase anything extra; would you be happy to have to go out and buy a pack of batteries, to find out the item is defective?

    There are 2 sides to every story and lots of multiple angles you can look at it from; personally the review and like most reviews on the internet of products is my personal experiences. Maybe my expectations are different from yours? Would be a boring world if we all thought the same, liked the same things and of course had the same opinions; I appreciate your feedback.

    I still stand by what I said, I found it hard to use, I didn’t like the feel it was something I could use but it will be SUITABLE for those looking for an ergonomic mouse; this is my opinion and I am entitled to it just like you are yours.

    In regards to my opinion before opening the mouse, that is just utter twaddle; the concept is great but in my PERSONAL opinion, it just doesn’t suit me hence it is reflected in the review.
