Ergonmic mouse with a twist

Specifications

The Smartfish ErgoMotion Laser Mouse is a full-size mouse with two buttons and a scroll wheel. The mouse is on a stand that raises it up a half inch off the desk surface and it uses a laser sensor. I would put sensitivity at about 800dpi from just using it and the mouse sells for about $50.

In Use

I have used some ergonomic mice before and come away not really feeling that much difference front them and a normal mouse. The mouse I work on all the time is a Logitech G700 wireless laser gaming mouse. My G700 has a right hand only ergonomic design that is very comfortable. The Smartfish ErgoMotion Laser Mouse us an ambidextrous wireless mouse that has only two buttons and a scroll wheel.

I am very used to a mouse with button on the side for moving back and forth on web pages and not having those buttons took some getting used too. The ErgoMotion mouse feels good in the hand even though at first glance it looks very much like a plain mouse. Visually the Smartfish ErgoMotion Laser Mouse sits on a little stand that has the feet and the sensor on bottom of the base has a cutout for the wireless USB dongle as well. The mouse is able to rotate back, forwards, left, and right on that stand to allow you to position your hand comfortably and help prevent repetitive injuries.

The feel of the mouse in the hand is good and it is weighted well. It does take some getting used to thanks to the way it moves around as you move your hand. I like the way it feels though, you can grab the Smartfish ErgoMotion Laser Mouse at weird angles and still feel comfortable using it.

I use a large screen on my computer at 30-inches. I like a lot of sensitivity in my mice so I can move around the screen with small hand movements. The Smartfish ErgoMotion Laser Mouse has low sensitivity at about 800 dpi compared to what I am used to, that means that it took much larger hand movements to move around my screen than I am used too. Again, that is something you can adjust to, but if you are using a really large screen be prepared to have to move your hands a lot to navigate.

One of the biggest drawbacks for me is the lack of side buttons on the mouse. Most mice today at least have the side buttons for moving back and forth on a web page. The scroll wheel is clickable on the Smartfish ErgoMotion Laser Mouse, but other than that and the two main buttons, you get nothing. The scroll wheel has a nice notchy feel without being too hard to flick when surfing long pages. I didn’t notice any issues with lag during my testing.

Verdict

Pros

  • Comfortable
  • Wireless

Cons

  • No side buttons
  • Low sensitivity
 

Conclusion

The Smartfish ErgoMotion Laser Mouse is a nice option for the user that needs an ergonomic mouse. It has lots of movement and after a learning curve; you can use it just as easily as a normal mouse. If you can live with few buttons and lower sensitivity, you may be happy with the Smartfish ErgoMotion Laser Mouse.
