Logitech released the Logitech Lift Vertical Ergonomic Mouse, and it’s meant to help with posture or for preventing carpal tunnel. As cute as something like the Lift can be, will this mouse convert me into using exclusively ergonomic mice, or will I hate it completely?
I’ve actually never seen an ergonomic mouse up close before, but the ones I’ve seen online are usually masculine, angle-heavy, and… incredibly dorky. But upon unboxing the Lift, I had to admit that it is pretty good-looking for an ergonomic mouse.
You can read my full review and watch it above if you want to know the specifics, but essentially, I’m still not completely convinced to move over to the ergonomic side after using the Lift. I prefer the lightness and shape of my regular wireless mouse, and I don’t see a huge difference in comfort either.
However, I was more impressed with what else the Lift had that wasn’t the vertical ergonomic shape. It paired seamlessly with my other devices and I never had a problem with the connection. Additionally, the mouse also seemed to glide pretty easily on not just my rough leather-like mousepad, but also on my table, as well as Rory’s smooth gaming mousepad. Any flat and hard surface seems to work fine with the Lift.
A slight downside to the Lift is that a mouse as fancy as this is that it still uses double-A batteries. But Logitech’s site promises me that the power on a double-A battery can last up to 24 months so I guess I don’t need to worry about that for now.
At RM299, I thought that it was a reasonable price to pay for a fancy mouse like this. But it’s probably one of the more expensive ones out there. Fellow writer Raymond pointed out several examples of cheap ergonomic ones under RM50.
Would I buy Logitech Lift? No. Its ergonomic shape isn’t enough to pull me to the dark side. But if you’re looking to buy a good mouse with the Lift’s best features—like Bluetooth connection and a fast scrolling wheel, Rory suggested that the Logitech MX Anywhere is a better option for about RM230. It’s just not as adorable.
