First Impressions: Quality Design Meets Medical Ergonomics

Opening our test unit box, we quickly saw the EX-G Pro’s thoroughly made contours and textured grip areas. Way different from the generic mouse shapes we’re used to, the half-upright angle and widened base immediately give off ergonomic impressions. 

ELECOM made the shape by working closely with bone and joint specialists to promote natural wrist placement and lessen tension. Choose from three sizes (small, medium, large) to find your perfect fit.

The matte black color gives off professional polish, improved by glowing marker lights and a strengthened braided cable that provides a premium feel. 

For included add-ons, you get a quality braided USB-C charging wire, the Mouse Assistant software access code, and user booklets. And, the overall unboxing experience shows the price point.

In an era where ergonomic devices often compromise on features to focus on comfort, the EX-G Pro proves you can have both. In addition to the ergo-friendly shape, it packs serious performance strengths:

  • Ultimate Blue LED Sensor 
  • Silent Click Switch
  • 8 programmable and customizable buttons
  • Tilting scroll wheel with hyper-fast scroll mode
  • Multi connectivity: Bluetooth 5.0, 2.4G Wireless, Wired, etc.

Relaxed Grip Feels Natural Even After Marathon Sessions

Moving from our regular mouse, the EX-G Pro’s slanted contour immediately molded nicely to our hand and wrist. The textured sides provide a relaxed yet controlled hold without pinching or contact stress even during marathon sessions. 

We also liked the quiet yet tactile clicks courtesy of Panasonic’s famous silent mechanical switches. Unlike old-fashioned upright mice needing uncomfortable sideways hand twisting to click buttons, the EX-G Pro keeps the arm, wrist, and fingers arranged straight to reduce rough movements. 

We could zip through hour-plus work or gaming sessions without any hint of hand soreness later. The ergonomic specialists ELECOM teamed up with certainly knew their stuff here.

Accurate, Customizable, and Quiet: Skill That Impresses

Ready with a high-detail sensor the EX-G Pro showed great accuracy and liquid tracking response across different mousepads and surfaces. Even fine-tuned photo edits and gaming headshots were no problem. 

Bluetooth connectivity stayed stable up to 10+ feet away from our paired laptops too. But we were most excited by the many customization choices thanks to 8 programmable buttons settable via the Mouse Assistant software. 

Whether enhancing shortcuts in Excel, assigning complex keystroke macros for coding projects, or mapping special attacks in games, the options are huge. And toggling the scroll wheel into hyper-fast mode made quick work of long documents.

Throughout our testing, the silent clicking continued wowing us with whisper-quiet clicks that prevent disruptions in libraries, offices, or night-computing without losing tactile feedback. This stellar balance really showcases ELECOM’s specialized skills.

Seamless Multi-Device Connectivity with Outstanding Battery Life

Pairing our test unit to both our work and personal laptops via Bluetooth 5.0 proved smooth and intuitive complete with numbered pairing slots to easily switch connections. 

We loved having pointer control of both systems at once via a single mouse. And remembering custom settings for each paired device via onboard memory meant no repeat setup procedures.

Even with extensive daily use across different tasks, we only needed the handy USB-C charging wire after a whopping 60 days thanks to smart sleep settings that conserve juice. And charging to full took under two hours – much better than old-fashioned alkaline batteries!

Customization Software Unlocks Next-Level Potential

While the EX-G Pro delivers solid performance out of the box, downloading ELECOM’s extra Mouse Assistant software unlocks additional tweaking capabilities. With robust options for remapping buttons, creating scroll/click/gesture macros, and tuning DPI sensitivities, power users have huge room for changes.

We enjoyed mapping shortcuts to simplify Excel number crunching and building multi-key macros to insert frequently used text snippets while writing. 

The clean software interface also makes trying custom configs enjoyable with handy built-in presets to reference too. For those wanting peak mouse tailoring to their needs, the software is a bonus.

Getting the Mouse Assistant software from the ELECOMUSA website proves straightforward.
