Raise your hand into comfort. Realign into a more natural posture. And relax into focus, all day long with Logitech Lift Vertical Ergonomic Mouse for Mac — a great fit for small to medium hands, with a left-handed option available too.
After nearly 30 years of staring at a screen for a living, I started to get some pain in my arm. Not 100% sure if it was the mouse or the Xbox controller that was to blame, but I think it was the mouse as it’s improved after a couple of weeks of using the Lift. It’s billed as being perfect for those with smaller hands, which mine aren’t, but I’ve always favoured a smaller mouse, and find this a perfect fit.
However, having used Logitech’s premium mice since 2009, I’m seriously struggling with the lack of their superb hyper-scroll feature! Once you’ve got used to that feature it’s seriously frustrating to not have it, especially on such a recent product. It stopped me from going for their MX Vertical mouse some time ago, and whilst I knew it wasn’t included with the lift, the need to tackle the onset of an aching arm trumped the missing hyper-scroll.
Logitech Lift Vertical Ergonomic Mouse for Mac Review
This might not bother you if you don’t do a lot of serious mileage with the scroll wheel, but if you do, and you’re used to hyper-scroll, I can’t stress enough how frustrating you’ll find its omission. If they released a version with hyper-scroll tomorrow, I’d drop another £70 on it in a heartbeat. I guess there might be a technical reason it can’t be incorporated in either of their vertical mice, as it’s been available on their other mice for years. Apart from that, the build quality is OK. Not quite the same as the MX products, but good enough.
Another consideration is that you’ll need to install Logitech’s latest software, ‘Options +’, as the Lift won’t work with their existing ‘Options’ software, and not all of the older devices have been ported to that platform, yet. I think the wireless receiver is different, too. You don’t need their software to use the mouse, but you’ll miss out on some of the properly useful customisation features that Logitech is pretty good at.
Overall, If you’ve got arm pain, and want their useful customisation, I’d give the Logitech Lift Vertical Ergonomic Mouse for Mac a go.
