Mice are not known to do any miracles in ergonomics. In a vertical mouse, the hand is in a more natural position, so this should be a more natural position. The Logitech Lift represents just this department, and is still convenient to use wirelessly.
The Logitech Lift ergohouse was introduced in April and went on sale at the same time. It costs 79 euros. Various ergonomic models can be found in the Evoluent range, for example, and Logitech has also previously released the MX Vertical mouse model. However, their prices are higher than the new model, even though the cheapest Evoluent models run on cable.
The Logitech Lift itself comes with a Logi Bolt USB receiver and AA battery, as well as a user guide.
The ergonomic model differs considerably from an ordinary mouse. Thanks to the design of the vertical Logitech Lift ergo mouse, the palm does not have to bend over the mouse. Instead, the mouse is used with the palm upright. The 57-degree operating angle of the wireless mouse should reduce strain on the arm, which in turn prevents muscle irritation and strain.
The manufacturer states that the ergonomic mouse is aimed at either small or medium-sized hands. This is true.
The small palm sits clearly more comfortably around the mouse than the slightly larger one. A man’s medium-sized palm, like the one in the picture, is starting to be at the limits in terms of fit, but the situation with a smaller palm is clearly better.
When you use the mouse, your little finger or the palm of your hand hits the mouse pad or other surface in use. There is a clear difference here, for example, with Evoluent mice, where the mouse also curves under the palm of the hand.
In terms of design, the test model is only suitable for right-handers, but there is a separate version for left-handers. The right-handed version is available in three different colors, Graphite Black, Natural White and Pink. Left-handers are content with their graphite black.
The back of the mouse is lined with a striped rubber surface. This gives a good grip and the palm does not easily run down the mouse. There are two buttons available for the thumb. Their functions can be customized with Options + (beta).
For example, browsing backwards and forwards is available by default, but different applications can have their own functions – the customizability can be considered good. The front of the buttons hits the thumb well, the rear requires a little stretching. The buttons are quiet, but they don’t feel like the buttons familiar from gaming mice, for example.
The left and right mouse buttons hit under the forefinger and middle finger. In the middle of them is a sensitive and virtually silent Smartwheel scroll wheel. Behind this is another button that by default switches the pointer speed between the desired levels.
It’s reasonably easy to get used to the Logitech Lift, regardless of previous ergonomic mouse usage. The mouse glides lightly. The mouse sensor did not appear to be particularly wrinkled on the platform where it is used.
In use, a more upright position feels natural. At first, the position is so strange that the hand gets tired faster than usual when using the mouse. The fingers on top are easily tensioned. The problem is alleviated when the mouse is used and learns to hold the hand in a natural position.
In use, perhaps the most disturbing was the height of the mouse in situations where you moved your hand from the keyboard to the mouse: more than a few times the hand hit the top of the Lift and I would swipe it somewhere else than intended. In longer use, however, the mouse is more likely to catch up from behind, rather than from the top.
The mouse supports Logitech’s Flow feature, which allows it to be used on up to three different devices. The device in use is selected with the switch located on the bottom. The wireless erg mouse is compatible with Windows, macOS, Linux, Chrome OS, iPadOS and Android with Bluetooth Low Energy. The mouse can also be connected via a USB connection to a Logi Bolt receiver, which is standard. There is a handy space on the bottom of the mouse for the receiver.
The price of the mouse has been considered more affordable by making it battery operated. While the use of an AA battery doesn’t seem particularly sensible in today’s world, the promised couple of years of use without replacement makes this a sensible option. It was not possible to test the service life in a short trial, but at least after a couple of weeks of use, the level had not dropped below 95%, which was read immediately after commissioning.
If you want a new, at least more ergonomic position for your mouse, the Logitech Lift is the right choice. When used wirelessly, it is flexible to use, and anyway, you can customize the functions enough for most people through the Options + application. The position and buttons hit the hand in the middle of the palm comfortably, so the price of 79 euros feels reasonable. For those already using the erg mouse, the Lift does not require replacement, but those with mouse hand problems should consider trying this erg mouse.
