Logitech MX ERGO Advanced Wireless Trackball

Anyone who works on the computer for at least eight hours a day will tell you how painful it can be using a mouse. Twisting and moving your hand for hours can be painful and tiring. Fortunately, using a trackball mouse can help alleviate the problem.

The Logitech MX ERGO is a good and efficient trackball mouse that has all the ergonomic features to reduce fatigue and pain.

Comfort

The MX ERGO brings comfort to a whole new level. The hardest part is changing your mindset and getting past the natural urges to move and twist the mouse around. All you need to do is move the trackball. Minimal hand movement help to lessen discomfort and strain when using the mouse for extended periods of time.

Accurate

Using the MX ERGO for the first time was challenging. After you get used to not having to move the mouse around, you need to master the trackball. The trackball is quite sensitive, but it is also very accurate. If you find that the cursor is too fast, simply adjust the setting to make it slower.

Once you have mastered the trackball, bump the speed back up. The high speed is ideal for people who are looking for a high-performance mouse. Whilst, many prefer the trackball for their ergonomic features, having great performance is an added advantage.

Pairing devices

The pairing feature that the MX ERGO offers is great allowing you to work on two computers with the same mouse. All you need to do is flick the switch to go from one computer to another.

Similarly, with the pairing function, you can share files and images between the two computers.

Additional buttons for convenience

The trackball is not the only thing that you need when working on a computer. Like other Logitech mice, the MX ERGO also comes with additional buttons to provide you with the convenience that you need when working. For example, you can use the speed buttons to control the movement of the cursor.

 

Our Verdict

The Logitech MX ERGO is a good option for people who use computers for long hours. It has ergonomic features to help reduce strain and muscle pain. Accuracy and precision were also great. However, first time users will struggle initially. Well, until it becomes natural anyway. All that said, if you are a lefty, this is not the mouse for you. For a right-handed person, this is a great alternative to a traditional style mouse.
