Reviewing the Scandinavian Penclic Mouse R3
This week I received a really interesting computing product in the mail which I gave my husband for Father’s Day. The product is the Penclic Mouse R3 a Scandinavian device made in Sweeden. I must admit I was quite intrigued when I was contacted about this item as John and I love gadgets and I’ve never used a different type of mouse for my computer before.
Usually I will use a Macbook and use my fingers on the mouse pad area and other times I will use an apple mouse. I was really quite interested to see exactly how the Penclic Mouse works in comparison to what I was used to.
The most obvious thing is that the Penclic Mouse is a mouse with a pen grip on it. This can help create a healthier working position and help avoid repeated wrist rotation. I have actually heard of RSA, repetetive strain injury and wrist overuse and seen how it has affected people in a past job and therefore any product which is more natural for the hand has the green light from me.
The Penclic Mouse is really easy and simple to set up. You simple turn the button on and off. The mouse uses rechargeable batteries, has a blue tooth connection and can also be charged via USB.
What I like about the Penclic is that it is great for both right and left hand users. The precision on the pen allows you to do very specific work for example when John was editing his photos, the Penclic made it easier to be precise than the usual mouse.
The one thing which is great is that this mouse can be used on any surface. Sometimes when using a normal mouse I struggle to get the mouse to work on the table and if i am using my computer in the lounge it can be awkward. With the Penclic I can use the mouse anywhere without worrying about movement across surfaces. That to me is the best part about this new device.
My husband has tested out the Penclic and he has now switched his usual mouse for this new product and is really enjoying it. I am quite pleased we were given the opportunity to review this product. It really is great and John was happy that he got this for Father’s Day. It made a fantastic gift!
We were sent the Penclic Mouse for the purpose of this review. All opinions and views are my own.
