The first name that pops into most peoples head when they hear computer mouse is generally Logitech. Logitech has done well over the past years to position themselves as a market leader in the input devices space. Having gone a few rounds with the new Logitech MX Vertical, it’s easy to see why.
Logitech has brought a vertical mouse design, previously used mostly by RSI and carpal tunnel suffers, mainstream. The MX Vertical is an ergonomically designed mouse that doesn’t compromise on design or performance. It features a 57-degree vertical angle that allows you to grip the mouse in an almost natural handshake position.
Likewise, Logitech has built the MX Vertical also to feel natural to touch. The shape and textured surface are designed to accommodate a variety of hand shapes and sizes.
The mouse features the standard left and right mouse buttons, premium scroll wheel, and the forward and back thumb buttons. One thing we did note though was the lack of hyper-scrolling.
The rechargeable battery is reported to last up to four months on a full charge. In case of emergency, a one-minute quick charge will power the mouse for around three hours. It was also good to see Logitech embracing USB-C with the MX Vertical.
Sensitivity on the MX Vertical was spot on, and we found the 4000 DPI high-precision sensor to be more than sufficient for our non-gaming usage.
The Logitech MX Vertical is a great mouse if you spend most of your computer time coding or working on documents. Gamers may still prefer a traditional mouse design as they tend to be less bulky; this was just fine for our needs. After the initial adjustment period moving to the vertical form factor, our only real complaint was the lack of hyper-scrolling.
