Try the Logitech Lift: a vertical ergonomic mouse for added office comfort

Ergonomics

The Lift is a very different mouse from the one we usually see on a table. Apparently this is the vertical design that hits at first glance, a unique format, but not new. Logitech really takes the overall ergonomics of the MX Vertical with the same inclination angle of 57 °.

On the other hand, the angles are more rounded and the Lift is more compact, so it is more suitable for small and medium-sized hands. It measures a total of 108 x 71 x 70 mm, and the large hands are actually quite crippled to use, the fingers are likely to stick out a bit. With its 125 g, the Lift isn’t the lightest, but this type of mouse is clearly not made to handle fast -moving.

The whole point of this ergonomic design lies in reducing wrist tension, the carpal tunnel (the area located under the palm of the hand) and the muscle chain up to the shoulder. The hand remains in a more natural position than a conventional mouse, which improves the user’s comfort over time.

It’s hard to evaluate the health gains in a few days of testing, but this position is actually very comfortable and you get used to the vertical format in just a few hours. For those who spend all day clicking, the mouse therefore seems interesting, but interest seems more limited if you spend most of your time at your keyboard or in a nightclub.

The coating is textured so that the hand does not slip.

The rat is usually made of plastic, but the area that accommodates the palm of the hand is made of textured rubber, which improves grip and prevents the hand from getting stuck. Otherwise, there are a total of 6 buttons: two completely silent primary clicks-one of the major advantages of this mouse-two secondary buttons at the mouse level, a mouse click on the wheel and a small button at the bottom. The latter allows you to choose between two levels of sensitivity and thus adapt to different tasks without going through the Logi Options software, for precise work in certain graphic applications, for example.

The SmartWheel is similar to the Signature M650, very slightly notched, but whose scrolling speed suits the user; an interesting hybrid solution, even if it’s not at the MagSpeed ​​level of the last -generation MX Masters.

Under the mouse, there is an on/off button and Easy-Switch button, Logitech technology that allows you to connect a device to 3 different devices and quickly switch from one computer to another. Finally, a small magnetic cover contains a Logibolt USB receiver – which is gradually replacing Unifying – as well as a battery (included). It offers an autonomy of about 2 years depending on the brand, which is more than enough to see the future.

How does grading work?

The Lift is a very good mouse and Logitech carries a model that is definitely a little less high-end than the MX Vertical, but more suitable for small hands, and it is, for a more useful price. It has very practical features, such as connectivity to multiple devices and more quiet buttons, but most of all interesting and original ergonomics that provide good user comfort for those who spend a lot of time on their computer.
