    Is this much better than the anker vertical mouse?

    • +1 vote

      Keen to know I ordered the Anker but is taking a while to even ship so contemplating cancelling it for this.

      •  

        I'm enjoying the anker. Can't see why I'd pay triple the price unless it's to do with build quality/longevity.

          I have both. Got the Ankler for work and then decided to get the Logitech for home use.

          Ankler:
          Much cheaper, but build quality is fine
          Batteries are AA, but seems to last a very long time
          I've used it for a year and the matte coating / smooth texture has been crumbling off - you can rub it off with your finger
          Lighter and fits smaller hands (a pro for me)
          Scroll wheel has become jumpy / janky. I opened up the mouse but you still can't access the wheel to clean it. Compressed air didn't work either

          Logitech:
          Paid $130 (so this is quite the bargain)
          Rechargeable via USB-C
          Haven't used Flow feature - have to install additional software
          Heavier and chunkier (I prefer the shape and weight of the Ankler)
          Right-mouse button is easily triggered - have to train myself to put less resting pressure on the finger over the button

          If I were to spend $30 on an Ankler two more times over a single $98 Logitech mouse, I would.

      Yes better, Logitech fits the hand better (a bit bigger), is rechargeable, feels more ergonomical and also has this Flow feature - multi device control, KVM-ish (ok it may be possible with Mouse Without Border or Synergy but they are more finicky to set up). I reckon the Logitech is 100% better than the Anker for 300% the price, but if I use it every day, then it is worth it. In term of longevity, the Anker lasted over a year for me, the Logitech, I will see.

        Thanks for the feedback ergonomical feel is good to hear. Logitech flow has always been a bit wonky on my ergo

    I personally prefer to the MX Ergo. I just can’t use vertical mice well after trying recently at work. PowerPoint becomes a massive chore.

    •  

      Same here. Not for everyone. I feel fatigue maybe because I lift my arm too high.

      Same here. MX Ergo is amazing.

    •  

      YMMV with the Ergo. I tried using that after having my Anker vertical mouse for a while and ended up with pretty bad pain in between my thumb and pointer, in that kind of fleshy bit. I guess from repetitive movements of my thumb on the scrollball. I wouldn't recommend the Ergo for everyone either personally.

      FWIW I have the Anker and really like it, apart from having to recharge the batteries.

    How's the precision when doing pixel-accurate stuff like Photoshop, 3D modelling etc?

    Normal mouse clicking can be done with little or no other pressure from the rest of the hand moving the mouse. With these vertical mice it looks like it could be hard to keep the mouse motionless during a click.

      I have one of these for work and personally I'd never use it for anything that needed pixel precision.

      Even just normal clicking can sometimes be jankier than a normal mouse (until you get used to it) with the movement that comes from clicking vertically. Plus, the way you grip it is much less secure and controllable IMO than a conventional mouse.

    •  

      I notice not no difference in pixel accuracy (have the Ankler, been using it about 4 months, previously used a Steelseries Sensei Raw). The only thing I wouldn't use it for is fast paced shooters. If in doubt get the $30 Ankler. Given how much of life is spent gripping a mouse in my opinion it's worth trying one out to see if it's for you.

      The biggest issue I have with vertical mice is that the very "fine" motion skill you need to do a precise movement felt significantly harder for me. Maybe with more practice/training you can get there but after a couple of days of fumbling around trying to make my usual pretty Powerpoint slides, I gave up. Trying to get things in the exact spot meant I had to spend more effort trying to move the mouse and do what I need than just visualising what I want and just moving my arm. Maybe it was more comfortable to hold vertically but the frustration from having to keep redoing things made me lose interest for those types of tasks.

      For general navigation/PC use though it was fine as buttons are usually big enough that you've got some buffer, but if you're doing pixel-precise work, I'd say try before you buy if you can.

      Alternatively, you could also consider both the MX Ergo I mentioned above which I find far better for my use case, or just a really good ergonomic mouse with the right angle/sculpt.

    can you use it in the air (not on a desk)?

    •  

      Wait, how would that work?

      Assuming you're being serious, no you can't use it in the air (except for scrolling I guess).

      •  

        some ergo mice have a ball ontop so you don't have bottom sensor, so you can hold your mouse and move around on your desktop with your thumb.

        •  

          The ergo benefit is gone if you hold and control your mouse in the air without support though. P.s. any mouse with trackball can be used as a vertical mouse in the air, just rotate your wrist ;-)

          well, yeah the MX Vertical is a mouse not a trackball.

          The MX Ergo is the trackball option.
