The Contour RollerMouse is one of our favourite ergonomic inventions; a rolling mouse replacement that sits below your keyboard, allowing you to mouse around the screen without moving your hands out of your ‘home row’ position. It’s super comfortable to use, and it feels more efficient too — we even use these in our offices!
The new Rollermouse Free3 has arrived at The Keyboard Company, and for a limited time we’re offering it as part of a bundle with the Counter Balance Keyboard at £30 off! Let’s take a closer look.
The new RollerMouse Free3
The RollerMouse Free3 is a sleeker, refined version of previous RollerMouse input devices. The Free3 is equipped with nine buttons, giving you left click and right click plus seven programmable buttons. There’s also an integrated scroll wheel, making it easy to move throughout the page.
The Free3 includes a new type of sensor beneath the rollerbar, allowing you to move the cursor on screen more precisely. This is great for any program with a complex interface, like Photoshop or Microsoft Word. Accuracy and cursor speed have also been improved, as you’re now able to set the pointer between 800 and 2800 DPI.
The Free3 is more comfortable than its predecessors too, thanks to an integrated wrist-rest with plenty of padding. The fully open rollerbar is also more stable, giving you room to move accomodating different shoulder widths. It’s also the lowest profile RollerMouse ever, allowing you to maintain an ergonomic position more easily. It also meshes extremely well with the Balance keyboard, which is why we’re offering these two new products in one bundle at a 10% discount!
I personally loved the RollerMouse when I reviewed it in 2015, and I can’t wait to spend more time with the new version. Now, let’s move onto the other half of the bundle: the Contour Balance Wireless Keyboard!
The new Contour Balance Wireless Keyboard
If you’re looking for the perfect keyboard to pair with your RollerMouse, then this may be it. The Contour Balance is designed to put your hands in the most comfortable typing and mousing position. Adjustable legs and tilt options make it easy to adopt an ergonomic posture, with options for negative, neutral and positive typing angles — unlike almost other keyboards on the market today.
The keyboard connects wirelessly to the included USB dongle, and can run for several months on just two AAA batteries. When not in use, you can keep the dongle within the keyboard itself, so you’ll never lose it. This keyboard doesn’t even need an on/off switch, thanks to its advanced power-saving technology.
All in all, it’s a solid keyboard that works great with the RollerMouse Free3. For more information and photos of both, please check out our store link below!
