Microsoft’s Sculpt Ergonomic Mouse (L6V-00001) is a uniquely designed ergonomic mouse that is Microsoft’s successor product to the excellent Natural Series mouse. Like its predecessor this mouse comes with advanced features meant to promote comfortable use. This mouse hits all the right marks in replacing a stellar product. The mouse’s main selling point is its excellent ergonomic design. The goal of an ergonomic mouse like this is to help users avoid mouse-induced wrist pain, repetitive strain injuries (RSI), and even carpal tunnel problems.
The Microsoft Natural desktop series of products which previously held our top place for best ergonomic mouse was a great product and this mouse is the new generation of that product renamed and it replaces it in Microsoft’s product line.
These were big shoes to fill, but as soon as we laid hands on this device we realized that the Sculpt lives up to its predecessor’s claim on ergonomic efficiency. This mouse is designed to enhance natural wrist placement with its ergonomic shape and it does so beautifully. It features a thumb scoop which serves the purpose of promoting natural and comfortable wrist posture. The tilted and elevated position feels great to the wrist and hand and it has nice thumb support as well. Overall the mouse just feels great on the hand and wrist while in use.
The innovative controls on the Sculpt also set it apart from other mice within its price range. The four-way scrolling button allows you to scroll up and down as well as left and right. This way, you won’t have to use a combination of mouse controls for vertical and horizontal scrolling. The mouse features three main controls: a Windows button, a back button and a four-way scroll button.
This mouse works on just about any surface you can imagine. It works flawlessly whether placed on the carpet, a granite surface, or a wooden table. Microsoft’s BlueTrack technology easily outperforms traditional laser and optical mice when it comes to precision and flexibility. It uses a beam that is more than four times larger than traditional mice, which explains its improved accuracy. While the innovative and highly effective BlueTrack technology offers increased accuracy, it still has limitations when it comes to the surfaces on which it can be used. For instance, the mouse will not work on glass or mirrored surfaces.
The Sculpt is optimized for use with Microsoft Windows. Therefore, Mac users cannot experience the mouse’s full functionality. Moreover, there are currently no Mac updates to allow Mac users to enjoy complete functionality with the Sculpt.
