Evoluent Vertical Mouse C wired
The Evoluent VerticalMouse C introduces a new profile and look to the Evoluent VerticalMouse. The clearly defined lines of the Evoluent VerticalMouse C naturally encourage correct hand placement by guiding the hand to the position of greatest comfort. A slight inward curve of the front half of the Evoluent VerticalMouse C permits the fingers to curl naturally and to relax against the buttons. The high gloss front contrasts with the black satin control surfaces which replace the familiar "rubberized" surfaces of earlier Evoluent models. This satin finish permits the hand to slide easily into position on the mouse when transitioning between keyboard and mouse.
No open box returns.
Buttons on the Evoluent VerticalMouse C are now integrated into the body of the mouse, eliminating the break between "body" and "button". As well, the flange that supports the little finger is no longer integrated into the Right Click button but has been increased in size and molded into the body of the mouse. This may reduce the risk of accidental right-clicks when moving the mouse as the little finger no longer presses against the Right Click button.
The Evoluent C features three primary buttons (left, middle and right click) and two secondary thumb buttons (back and forward). A high quality scroll wheel with soft detents is angled slightly downward to facilitate a natural scrolling action by the index or middle fingers. Button functions are pre-assigned but may be reprogrammed using the free downloadable Evoluent Mouse Manager software. The software offers access to a wide range of additional functions, including an auto-click option which can be activated to reduce repetitive left clicking.
The Evoluent VerticalMouse C is also equipped with a high-performance four-level sensor. The pointer speed can be easily cycled from slowest to fastest using the small button located just behind the scroll wheel. LEDs on the shoulder of the mouse indicate the current setting.
The Evoluent VerticalMouse C is suited to right handed users 5'7" tall and over. While this latest version is no higher than the VerticalMouse 4, the extended flange which supports the little finger is noticeably wider than the flange on the VM4 and provides better support for larger or thicker fingers. This improved support is also evidenced in the design of the buttons. Unlike the buttons on the VM4 which have a rounded bevel and a slight backward slant the VMCR has a forward slant. This results in longer buttons which offer noticeably better support for longer fingers than those on the VM4. Overall, the Evoluent VerticalMouse C is longer than the VM4 yet, despite being able to better accommodate larger or longer hands than the VM4, the "footprint" of the newer model is slightly shorter and narrower than the previous model, and requires no more desk space.
Note: The Evoluent Vertical Mouse C is not yet available in size small. Users whose hand measures less than 7" from the tip of the middle finger to the crease of the wrist
