FITS RIGHT AND EASY TO USE – MICROSOFT WIRELESS MOBILE MOUSE

Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse – Model 3500 Pros: one AA battery included, on/off switch, programmable buttons, a magnifying feature Cons: sometimes vertical scrolling jumps during use I have been using this Microsoft Wireless Mouse for over four years. It replaced a Logitech model that decided to die. Usually I prefer Logitech mice, but I’m very

AFFORDABLE “VERTICAL” MOUSE HELPS MAINTAIN WRIST AND HAND HEALTH

Lugulake Vertical Ergonomic Optical “Stress-Relieving” Mouse Pros: Remarkably low price ($9.99). On-screen “tracking” is smooth and precise. Left/right buttons are easy-to-click and not unduly noisy. Smooth scroll wheel works well and operates familiarly (unlike the competing “3M” model that I’ll compare below). Cons: As with a traditional, non-ergonomic mouse (but unlike the competing 3M model), there’s no

IF COMFORT’S A PRIORITY, THINK TWICE BEFORE BUYING THIS HEADSET

Logitech ClearChat Comfort/USB Headset H390 Pros: Decent sound quality. Very good USB microphone quality. Possibly more durable than cheaper headsets.

IS A REFURBISHED KINDLE LIKE NEW?

Kindle, Wi-Fi, 6″ Display Pros: slim, lightweight, no-glare screen, easy navigation, affordable, advertising or advertising-free models Cons: small on/off switch, no touch screen (If that matters to you) I owned a second generation Kindle Keyboard-style e-reader for quite a few years.  When strange black lines and white splotches invaded the display, I immediately set to Google

MICROSOFT’S WIRELESSLY “ERGO” TRIO KEEPS HANDS/WRISTS COMFY & HEALTHY

Pros: Keyboard’s thoroughly ergonomic form incorporates quiet, low-profile, short-travel-distance, finger-fatigue-reducing keys (including a two-piece space bar) and a wrist-straightening, removable riser bar. Detached—repositionable—number pad shortens reach for the mouse. Stylishness and wirelessness of all three components. Battery life is reportedly extremely long. Cons: The uniquely shaped mouse won’t feel perfectly comfortable for every user’s wrist and/or thumb. Several of

YOUR “STRAIGHT” KEYBOARD MAY BE INJURING YOU!

Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 Pros: “Split” ergonomically sculpted keyboard (including cushioned palm rest and optionally attachable palm lift) is said to maximize comfort while minimizing/preventing painful “carpal tunnel” symptoms. Several extra “dedicated” keys conveniently perform frequently used functions for web-browsing, volume control, calculating, etc. Full-height (albeit not “mechanical”) keys’ “feel/feedback” superior to many entry-level keyboards’. Wired USB connection never requires batteries.
