- Excellent ergonomic device Review by James
Only two things to mention. The first is very minor: every time you turn on your computer you have to press the DPI button on the Penguin to select the desired level. Would be nice if it could remember it.
Secondly I want to address something that I've seen mentioned in reviews on other websites - that the buttons are cheap, weak or will wear out. Both buttons do have quiet, cushioned clicks, and in the case of the top, "left-click" button, quite a bit of travel. To be honest they do feel a little like they might not last, but after a few weeks of use I've developed confidence that it is just that the design is "soft-click" and they're fine. They just feel significantly different to the solid click you may be used to.
Very happy with my purchase, thank you. (Posted on 24/07/2014)
- Mixed - not for every task Review by Busybee
A normal mouse is mostly operated with the hand and fingers allowing quick and precise selections. The Penguin is mostly operated (moved) with the arm which makes this precision quite difficult. Interestingly, reviews for similar types of ergonomic mice (joystick types) stress this same issue. I do a lot of desktop publishing and image editing. Even after three days, I get very frustrated with the fine selection tasks. At the end of the day, I ended up with soreness in my neck/ shoulders. Subsequently, I would recommend the Penguin for people who mostly do text-processing, software development and similar tasks.
In addition to this main issue, there are others you should be aware of: the mouse buttons are quite stiff. I find that when pressing the buttons, I move the mouse. Also, the mouse has a wide bottom for resting your hands which means, it does require a lot more space than a normal mouse. Further, the mouse needs a lot more space as the movements are much (!) more extensive than a normal mouse. To explain the latter point: at the speed set for my normal mouse, I quickly run out of desk space to move the cursor from the top of my screen window to the bottom (very frustrating). I reduced this problem by increasing the mouse speed to fastest (and setting the dpi to highest).
Finally, I did notice that my wrist was less sore at the end of the day. However, even if I manage to finally achieve the same selection precision as with a normal mouse, I will probably end up with a shoulder/ neck problem. For the main computer tasks I perform, I will have to find an ergonomic mouse rather than a stick. (Posted on 21/07/2014)
- Wrist Pain now Gone !!!!! Review by Cathy
- Excellent Review by Big Hands
Smooth effortless control. The bird beats the mouse hands down!
Only negative I can think of is no "forwards/Backwards" button for browsing pages. (Posted on 11/04/2014)
- No more pain. Excellent mouse! Review by Scotts
- Really Pleased Review by Mrs O
- Pick up a...? Review by Sebastian (Staff Review)
A normal flat mouse seems like the most alien object in my hand now. This is the future - it seems that we have progressed beyond mice to penguins. The only downside is that it doesn't double as a gaming joystick! (Posted on 04/12/2013)
- Plug and play. Very comfortable Review by Charlie S
- fantastic Review by jo s
I began to suffer from severe pains in my right hand and wrist in February and wrist and was diagnosed as suffering from the early stages of RSI. I told by a physiotherapist that if I didn't modify my mouse use my condition would become progressively worse. The health and safety officer at work took immediate action and got me the penguin mouse; I have been pain free since I began using it in March. This is wonderful product, I am amazed that it is not more widely known about. At home I now use my mouse with my left hand – but am concerned that I may begin to develop similar problem with my left hand – I would like to be able to afford to have one at home and hope that as this product become more widely known and used, your prices will reduce and be more in line with other mouse products.

- Tried it but did not reduce my RSI in hand. Review by Ron Watson
Should have designed an ambidextrous tilted base instead.
I have since purchased the Grip mouse, which is on an angle and feels more natural. (Posted on 07/07/2012)
