RollerMouse is a comfortable mouse that has removed my pain
“There is one thing that can be counted on though and that is long sessions in front of computer either locked into an edit or general admin tasks. Editing is great, my favourite stage of production, but I have on occasion had to break away from my session to give my hand a rest from using my regular mouse.”
This is a pain that I have not felt since using the RollerMouse
Wider Horizon is a creative media company that produces a variety of videos for clients. Our working days are different day to day, one day we could be filming a wedding and the next we could be on a construction site filming a training video. Editing is great, my favourite stage of production, but I have on occasion had to break away from my session to give my hand a rest from using my regular mouse. Not a pain I always experience, but not uncommon after a solid 6-8 hours editing. This is a pain that I have not felt since using the RollerMouse.
I could see the potential of the product
It was a simple learning curve
Setting up the RollerMouse was very easy as all it took was plugging it in via USB. Initially I didn’t get along with the RollerMouse because it felt very different to a normal mouse. I kept reaching to the right of my keyboard to grab my traditional mouse. I had to relearn how to use a mouse when using the RollerMouse, but it was a simple learning curve. After a few days I was comfortable with the RollerMouse and able to use it just as fast as a regular mouse. I didn’t think I would get used to using the RollerMouse, but the novelty of using something so different made it almost fun to use and by the time the novelty wore off I was used to the RollerMouse. It is important to mention that I found it difficult to type at first when using the RollerMouse because I kept hitting the spacebar due to the positioning of my hands. This is now not the case.

These buttons are quicker to use than any of the shortcuts
A comfortable mouse
As for other software alongside the RollerMouse, it takes more practise and learning to get used to it. For example, tracing round something on Adibe Illustrator, or masking something on After Effects is slightly tricky at first. This did take a couple of attempts to get right but once you have got the hang of it you naturally speed up.
I would like to say that the RollerMouse is a good product and my mind was completely changed. At first I didn’t really like it, but after learning how to use it, and using it daily changed my opinion. It is a comfortable mouse to use and has currently replaced my regular mouse, which I will keep close by just in case, but for the time being the RollerMouse is in use.
