Logitech Launches Vertical Mouse in Different Colors
Logitech launches vertical mouse in different colors as the company announced lift, a $69.99 wireless vertical mouse launching in both left as well as a right-handed options. The Lift is vertically positioned, putting your hand at a 57-degree angle for enhanced ergonomics.
When compared to a traditional mouse, mice like the Lift may help to reduce wrist strain significantly because you're holding your wrist at a similar angle to shaking someone's hand. At least, that's what I've noticed. I switched to a split ergonomic keyboard last year, and a mouse-like the Lift rounds out the configuration.
For those keeping score, the Lift isn't nearly as feature-rich as the more expensive $99.99 MX Vertical, but it might be a nice entry-level alternative if you don't want to pay that much. It lacks USB-C charging and instead runs on a single AA battery that Logitech claims can last up to two years.
The Lift foregoes the exquisite design of the MX Vertical in favor of something simpler and more fun (plus, you can get it in graphite, silver, or pink). It still has the rubber grip to keep it tight in your hand, and it has the majority of the same fundamental features.
Logitech Mouse Contains Silent Scrolling Feature
The mouse contains two primary buttons, a scroll wheel for smooth, silent scrolling, a DPI change button, and two thumb buttons. There's a button on the bottom that allows you to select one of three devices to which you may connect the Lift (holding it doubles as the Bluetooth pairing button).
This mouse features Logitech Flow, the company's unique software feature that allows the mouse to be used on numerous computers at the same time - even if they run different operating systems. The Logi Options Plus program must be active on both computers for the pointer to go from one to the other.
The program may also be used to simply copy and paste files from one system to another. I saw a hands-on demonstration of this program in action, but it refused to cooperate with me at home.
Logitech includes their new Bolt USB receiver with the Lift to allow rapid connection to a PC with a USB-A port. This unifying receiver has improved security over its predecessor. You may also use its Bluetooth capability, which does not require the use of a receiver.
