What’s not so great

Logitech MX vertical wireless ergonomic mouse is not designed for gaming. The mouse clicks from right to left rather than up to down.

As the optical sensor of the vertical mouse is infrared, it may need a reflective surface and not work very well on transparent glass.

The mouse does make some clicking noise although not very loud but can be heard. It is not the silent mouse type.

The USB cable that comes along with this mouse is only about four feet long. It should have been a bit longer to provide more freedom of space.

Left-handed people cannot utilize the benefits of this mouse as it is only for right-handed people.

The scroll is not hyper or frictionless like the MX master series. It does not click for freewheeling and doesn’t slide left/right.

The size is a bit big and might not work very well with people who have small and frail hands.

The buttons on the side of the thumb are weirdly placed. One has to stretch the thumb horizontally instead of a natural vertical lift/drop of the thumb.
