I expect a mouse to work out of the box. This fails that expectation. The scroll-pad is so touchy that I was about to return the darned thing. Then I decided to try one more thing and downloaded the software from Microsoft. A few tweaks and it's now my favorite mouse.

Here's the kicker: Mice are pretty basic. I have NEVER before had to install the Logitech or Microsoft software just to get the basic use case working. Oh, and finding and installing the software (no disk or URL was provided in the packaging) is not something I would expect a non-techsavvy user to do. Admittedly, if you want to super-customize the button behaviors, etc... then I expect to have to download the software. But NOT to make basic up/down scrolling work.

The end result: I love the mouse, but my next mouse will not be a Microsoft one. I hate having to install extra stuff on my computer.

I hate it. I bought two and will return the unopened item. If your wrist is prone to carpal tunnel syndrome, do not use this item! The design looks cool and is very easy to set up. I like that it flattens for storage in laptop bags for travel.

A great portable mouse

Comments about Microsoft Arc™ Touch Mouse:

This is a great mouse for those who change locations frequently. The mouse is light and folds flat and easily fits in a pocket or backpack. I got this mouse as I needed to lighten my backpack for travel. It is very responsive and works on many surfaces, plus the form is just cool.

    Comments about Microsoft Arc™ Touch Mouse:

    I like this new mouse. Very comfortable though scroll bar was a little quirky to get used to. But once I did it was no big deal.

    Comments about Microsoft Arc™ Touch Mouse:

    This is a strange produce, to say the least. It is noisy when one scrolls up or down. It switches applications if several are open at the same time without any move by the user, which is extremely frustrating. For instance, when one has Outlook, Mail and the Internet open, any of those applications will take over the screen without any prompt or movement by the user. It's use requires plugging into a USB port, which is a detriment if one uses while away from one's office, so I leave it at home when I travel, which is frequent. I frankly would not use it anymore, but it was expensive, so I am stuck with the product.

    Comments about Microsoft Arc™ Touch Mouse:

    This fits my hand well, the battery has lasted for close to 6 months, and it fits well in my travel bag. I really like it. Might not be so good for people with big hands.

    Some of the drawbacks are:
    1. It does not work on my glass desk.

    2. DO NOT lose the transceiver. The mouse does not work without it. This alone is why a 5 star mouse is only getting 3 stars. I have not trusted the magnet to "hold" on to the transceiver so I put it in a USB hub that I'll take with me.

    3. It can be a bit skittish in some programs I have used. I blame it on the software more than the mouse. But still, this should not happen.

    I would recommend this but with an ** Don't lose the transceiver.
