5.0 out of 5 starsFantastic mid-sized “upgrade” to the MX Vertical

I’ve been using a Logitech MX Vertical (MXV) mouse since it launched and while I’ve benefitted tremendously from the more ergonomic layout, I had always wished for a few differences. Somehow, Logitech answered all of those areas with this offering.

I wear a men’s medium sized glove, for reference. The MXV was always just a touch large, requiring me to “reach” for the forward button with my thumb, I was only able to push and pull the mouse wheel from the back half, and my palm was always fully rested on it, getting a bit warm and uncomfortable to use for long stints. The Lift is just the right size that I can operate it with a claw grip, only using my fingertips, and all of the buttons and the wheel are perfectly placed for ease of use. The material choices and placements are great, and the added curvature of the mouse buttons adds to the comfort of use.

Transitioning from one to the other was a mere swap of a Unifying Receiver to a Bolt Receiver. I updated my software to the new Logitech Options+ beta, and in little to no time, had the new mouse pointing and clicking away.

Before the MXV I had a Logitech M330 Silent, and I absolutely LOVED the near-silent operation of the mouse buttons. I really wished that they would have incorporated that into the MXV, but I will forgive them for this since they brought them back in this more compact package. Strangely enough, the thumb buttons on the Lift are louder than the MXV, but that could easily be “newness” that just needs a bit of breaking in.

Lastly, the Lift uses a single AA, which I actually prefer over the proprietary battery which the MXV had. I don’t need to plug in a USB cord; I just swap out the battery when I get the notification. I have rechargeable batteries, so it’s a non issue and I never have to use it in “wired mode” ever.

This is essentially what I wished the MXV was when it was launched. If you’re looking for a medium sized, quiet, ergonomic mouse, this is it.

3.0 out of 5 starsBoth the most comfortable and dirtiest mouse I’ve ever owned.

This mouse is, barring obvious cleaning issue, absolutely the best mouse I have ever owned. I’ve tried quite a few ergonomic/vertical mice over the years – they’re a necessity at this point for how often I’m working on my computer for work/hobbies. This Logitech mouse, however, takes the cake.

– The buttons are whisper-quiet, I mean really almost inaudible if I’m not paying attention
– Very comfortable grip
– Customizable buttons
– Great battery life
– Impressively smooth glide
– Solid construction

– Will get very, very dirty. It’s not an if, it’s a when.

I have tried all the recommended methods to clean this mouse. I’ve followed Logitech’s recommendations, Reddit’s recommendations, I was my hands several times a day, I clean the mouse every day (sometimes twice a day), and yet after not even 30 days, it looks like the picture attached. I’m so, so sad because I have the Logitech MX Keys Mini, and the mouse matches it so well. I love everything about this mouse, but I can’t in good conscience recommend the white/grey one to anybody due to how horrible it is to try and keep this thing clean.

If anybody has a solution, I’m all ears.

FINALLY! Well built mouse for Carpal tunnel!

I swear.. Carpal tunnel is a curse; once you get it, it will always sneak back up on you.

I’ve had over 20+ mice in the past decade, for all different use cases. Office work, Gaming, General use, I’ve tried most of the best offerings. This mouse finally hits the mark on instant relief for Carpal Tunnel.

It’s quite light weight, close to the Anker Vertical Mouse. The buttons are very enjoyable to press, they are a low-actuation weight, extremely quiet, and the feeling is similar to that of the ‘bump’ you feel when pressing down on modern apple track pads or smart phones. It’s very gentle, and helps a ton to relieve the strain of other mice. The combo of gripping a mouse, along with hard to push buttons found on other vertical mice can lead to more strain. This mouse just feels gentle. It feels like you are doing a gentle handshake with your mouse.

I’ve been seriously going through mice lately. I work from home, and I love to game. I switch between a general use mouse, to a high end gaming mouse, and my wrists start screaming. The nice thing is, while it doesn’t have the input latency of a gaming mouse, it is quite fast and accurate! I was testing it in some games, and was surprised that I was actually holding my own pretty well! In it’s current form, it’s not exactly pro gaming material, but heck I’d be OK to play with this thing.

I’m dead serious, if Logitech would be the first manufacturer of a gaming grade vertical mouse like this, I’d be buying it in a heart beat.

Carpal Tunnel: 5 Stars Absolutely get this
Gaming: 3 Stars, Very doable! Needs proper sensor, bottom skates and latency.
Battery: 4 Stars, Awesome, but unfortunately uses AA Battery instead of Lithium rechargeable.
Macros: 2 Stars, Quite lacking, They definitely should add some more options

Overall: 4 Stars. Carpal Tunnel users who need a full time new mouse, or for those who needs a mouse to alternate to for overall wrist health. This is the one. I’ve tested all the others for you, just measure your hands, and get this one.

Bonus tip: Highly recommend looking into the ‘gliding wrist rests’ on Amazon. They work for both regular and vertical mouse use. Keeps your wrist steady, and for vertical mice this lets you relax your hand more so you aren’t having to grip the mouse as hard. Been using one for 6 years and I refuse to go back.

Combo the mouse, wrist rest and a wrist brace at night, and you’ll get your wrist back!

Almost perfect mouse for me

extra photo: amazon fix the app to not require 3 photos b4 I can enable the submit button!
I have large hands, so was a little worried about the small and medium hand description but also appreciate logitech including that per previous customer requests. See the pics, works fine with my thumb on the bottom ‘ridge’ of the mouse. Maybe a design cue for logitech but perfectly comfortable. I set the thumb buttons to cut and paste but may not use them.

Note gap between my palm and mouse. When i have to pickup mouse to scroll a long ways over large multiscreens, my hand cannot grip mouse in normal position without clicking a thumb or forefinger button, but just fine when thumb s in lower ridge.

My work is on 2 diff Mac computers and in Windows 10. Could not find docs describing how many bluetooth devices the mouse can connect to, but it does 3 without the USB dongle – beautiful. Only quibble is I have to pick up the mouse and push the button with my other hand to switch to next computer but its Ok and the switch works quickly. If I were designing it i woulda put the button on top end of the mouse where my pointer finger can click it fastest.

BTW still havent gotten cut and paste buttons working on Mac, only Windows but Ok I use keyboard for that anyway.
On the included K380 keyboard for Mac, I used swiftkeys app to remap cmd key to windows control key so same button works for both Mac and Windows for cut and paste- Cmd-C. Works fine for me!

Update: Still love this mouse and keyboard! Did get cut and paste working, turns out the logitech s/w allows you to change those settings per App, which is VERY useful, and I did not have that set right. The Options+ software is fantastic, and make sure you try Flow, which enables me to have one mouse and keyboard seamlessly work against all 3 devices. Mine 3 are setup left to right, so I roll the mouse left or right to auto switch BOTH mouse and k380 keyboard to next laptop. Sometimes takes a second to switch but very cool to do it without pushing both switch buttons on mouse and keyboard. The more you use it the more you like it!

Better than expected!

I had been using a cheaper ergonomic mouse which would stop working randomly and regularly. I’ve always trusted the Logitech brand so I dropped more money than I wanted to spend. After using it for about a week, I am glad I spent the extra money! I cannot speak to battery life as I have not had it long. The ease of connection and use is fantastic. It works every time. It does not “go to sleep” when not moved for a few minutes (with the other one, it had to be clicked to wake up and I lost several documents because of undesired closing – not Word products but documentation software which is unforgiving). It is described as “whisper quiet” when clicking – and it is! There isn’t a sound at all when clicking. The scrolling is smooth. The programmable keys are pre-programmed (one is, one isn’t). I am not able to download and use the software for customization due to limitations with the computer itself. Using the programming would be very nice though. The sizing is accurate too. This is for small to medium hands. If you have large hands, you could use it,, however, it would likely be irritating because it would not fit your hand well. If you are on the fence about purchasing this product, put it in your cart and get it shipped to you as soon as possible!

how have i not known about this all this time?

very recommended. very ergonomic. very easy to use.
this could be exasperated or more dramatic for us left-handed mouse users as there typically is not anything for us out there. So the dual-ergo fit of an ergo mouse AND a left-handed mouse is unbelievable.

For most useful comments, here are my thoughts in general:
1. weight is a good thing. don’t get a vertical mouse that is too light
2. for me i like width between thumb and index finger. I’ve seen some super skinny thumb slots and while that might be comfortable, i can’t see that being ergonomic when it comes to clicking buttons. being too thin seems to me it would be more difficult and finicky.
3. It works best to think of a gun as to how to hold a vertical mouse. Keep that middle finger for the “right mouse button click” (or for us lefties, the “left(er) mouse button click) off the trigger. I’m constnatly inadvertently hitting that secondary mouse button by accident, so i let it rest below the button rather than ride the buton like the main button and the index finger.

This is my first time using a vertical mouse and after only 2 days I can’t see ever going back. I will now make an excuse to come watch youtube or streaming internet tv just so i can use this mouse!

Only wish is that it were rechargeable so i never have to buy a battery or run out of power. I guess I’ll probably get rid of the mouse or break it before that ever happens though (claim is 2 yrs of life)

One of the most ergonomic mice!!!

My profession, as far back as my college years, requires me to use mouse for hours every day. For the past 20+ years, I’ve tried almost every possible form and shape of ergonomic mouse. Track ball for thumb, track ball for index finger, large touch pad, transforming mouse that can be re-configured to look like a torture device. And almost all of them, after extensive use, they still gave me some discomfort to my thumb, finger, wrist, or forearm. So, I’ve trained to use a mouse either with my right hand or left hand. I kept switching between two hands to minimize the risk of having pain/discomfort.

Then, I bought the Logitech MX Vertical, and I loved it after about 2 years of using it. But, Logitech MX Vertical mouse, which does not have a left hander and seems to be discontinued or replaced by Logitech Lift vertical mouse. Fortunately, Logitech Lift does have one for left hand.

So, my current set up is a Logitech MX Vertical on my right side and a Logitech Lift Vertical on my left side. The lift has softer curves and edges all around, and its slightly smaller than the MX. But, it functions exactly the same as the MX.

What I didn’t like is that Lift requires Logitech Option+ software to program the buttons & wheels, but Option+ does NOT recognize the older MX. And MX requires the older Option software to program the buttons & wheels. I think Logitech should have made Option+ backward compatible with older mice.

4.0 out of 5 stars

Good mouse. Probably reduces strain. Pricey.

July 2022
Review after about 1 month of using this Logitech ergonomic wireless mouse. 5 days a week for full work days.

Overall I would say it is a good mouse that probably does keep my hand and wrist more comfortable for longer. Or less harmed by bad posture than a classic mouse design.

It takes about a day to get used to the new sideways holding and buttons. But one gets used to it quickly enough. And it is just as accurate as a regular mouse when using it for writing documents, inputing data in spreadsheets and such. I would say it is not as accurate if you are intending to use it for free drawing lines, curves, etc. But for pointing and clicking and selecting text and cells, it’s great.

Two things I have noticed that are small annoyances are
that picking it up to reposition it slightly on your desk as you move the cursor on the screen, is a bit tricky. It tends to slip off your hand because of the design. It tapers up and smaller as it rises, so there is no place to get a good grip on it.
The other small annoyance is that sometimes I will hit the mouse as I move my hand around the desk because it is a tall mouse. So I have to lift up my hand more than usual. This knocks the mouse around sometimes.

And the price is way too high for what it is. I don’t see how there is much more raw materials that make up this mouse versus a regular mouse. Maybe 30% more plastic? It should not cost 150% more than a quality brand regular bluetooth mouse.

I do like that it has 3 bluetooth ‘channels’ so that the same mouse can be connected to 3 different computers by simply pressing the button that switches the channels.

I like that the bluetooth connects directly to computers without having to use a USB port with a small dongle.

Overall, I would say it’s a good quality mouse, with well designed ergonomics, but way overpriced.

Nice but small

I gave it 5 stars since it’s a nice mouse – for small hands. My hands are medium, and even though it’s marketed for small and medium hands, it was too small for me, and I unfortunately had to return it. I loved the silent clicks and smooth scrolling and would have kept it had it fit my hand. I tried adjusting how I held it, but that led to soreness and a non-ergonomic position.

Pros: quiet clicks, smooth/quiet scrolling, Bluetooth, smooth to use, looks nice, seemed high-quality.

Cons: too small for medium hands, difficult to pick up due to slickness, pricey

I tried a demo of the larger Logitech MX vertical mouse at Best Buy, but that is not just a larger version. The clicks were not as quiet and smooth, and it was not worth $100 to me. So I went with a different brand of a vertical ergonomic mouse.

(Video) Top 5 BEST Ergonomic Mouse of (2022)

This is wonderful

I haven’t written a review for a long time. I fell in love immediately with this mouse.

I was getting a bit of wrist pain from my other standard mouse and wanted to try something new like this. Right away I notice the increased comfort and more natural holding style. It just makes sense, your wrist naturally rests in a more upright position like this, not flat and turned towards the ground.

The best thing about the mouse, which honestly I hadn’t even considered before buying, is that IT IS TOTALLY SILENT. I’m not exaggeratingI cannot hear any clicks ever. The scroll wheel also is entirely quiet.

The mouse glides smoothly, there is less friction involved than a standard mouse. It also feels like less wrist and forearm action is involved overall, like all movements are minimized and reduced, and yet I am more accurate and quicker with everything I’m doing with the pointer on the screen.

The scroll wheel is the best I’ve ever used. It moves in such a frictionless yet intentional way, it is perfect. I never go past where I want to scroll or even consider that I am using the feature, and yeah it’s totally silent!

I have long fingers and my hands are on the larger size, maybe medium to large. For me the mouse feels like it should, it could even be a bit bigger but I like that it doesn’t consume my entire grip. Maybe it could feel a bit smallish for a larger, fatter hand, or too large for petite hands, but for most this will be a great fit.

I have not had it long enough to test the battery life, but I expect no issues there. Also, it’s just one single AA battery, which I find more convenient and economical than the 2 AAA batteries which my other mouse was taking. The mouse does come with a single AA battery.

I had a bit of splurge money and I’m very happy I got this. $70 for a mouse feels like a lot, but consider that it’s actually the most important part of using a computer. It is the vehicle through which you navigate everything in the virtual world. I can lose myself much easier in what I’m doing when I can forget my hand is even being used!

Totally worth it.

If you lift your mouse often to reposition, read this review

I’ve never really noticed how I use a mouse until I got this one. I tend to work with very little space, so I’d pick up the mouse to reposition it when scrolling over a large area (I use two 1080p monitors so that’s a lot of scrolling to get from one side to another).

I’m currently using a left handed wired vertical mouse (Perixx Perimice 513L). It’s cheap (under $20), light, and comfortable. Picking up the mouse to reposition it is not a problem. And it’s also the right size for my hands.

But I’m seduced by the Logitech brand, so I decided to give this one a try, despite it not having one for larger hands. I figured I could live with the Lift. And I think I can get used to it.

However, the mouse is too heavy and doesn’t have the grip to pick up easily to reposition. Instead, I need to either tilt it to reposition, or move my thumb lower, under the “lip”, so that it can be picked up easily. Depending on how you use the mouse, this may irk you, or it may be a non-issue.

Another issue I have is that the SmartWheel clicks loudly when scrolling in one direction and not the other. I think this is a defect with this particular mouse and I’m getting it replaced. I have another mouse with SmartWheel and there’s no annoying click.

Other than that, I like the mouse. Especially the battery compartment. This is the first Logitech mouse (or any mouse, for that matter) where the battery compartment is secured with magnets. It makes it SO EASY to open. It makes me almost sad that I don’t need to replace batteries often (Logitech claims a 2 year battery life).

I also like the silent buttons – they may not have the satisfying CLICK but they’re a lot better if you need to use the computer late at night or in a quiet environment. I do wish there’s an option for either clicky or silent buttons though. Even the side (forward / back) buttons are silent.

One slight problem with the software install – when I plug it in, it prompted me to install Options+. After rebooting my computer, it turned out that it wasn’t installed for some reason. I tried to install it manually, but made a mistake and installed Options instead (not supported). After uninstalling that, I decided I don’t really need the software after all (didn’t need to reprogram the buttons) so I’m using it without any Logitech software.

It’s not perfect, but it’s Logitech’s best left handed mouse in a long time. Especially compared to the M650L. But if it’s too expensive, take a look at the Perixx.

5 star device with a 4.5 star design

I am giving this device 5 stars because it lives up to its promises – it is ergonomically designed with very quiet & smooth functionality. If the rating system allowed for 1/2 stars, only 4.5 of them would be earned since the device is a little too small for some users’ hands. I am a man with average-sized hands and my fingers naturally fall just a bit beyond the buttons and scroll wheel so some adjustment is required. That said, this little guy’s look, feel, and ease of use are awe-inspiring. Hopefully, Logitech will see fit to make a slightly larger version someday.
