I bought this mouse because the touchpad on my Chromebook has nearly worn out already!!! I am a law student and practically live on my computer. I needed something that would survive being thrown in my bag and dragged around from the classrooms, library, etc. This mouse will definitely see some rough use! So far it has been a lifesaver. Since my touchscreen is has intermittent "deadspots" I can rely on this mouse to help me cut and paste notes from one document to another for test preparation outlines. Great product, wish I could say the same for my Chromebook.

This is an OK mouse, but it's definitely quirky and needing some work. Thanks to Apple's inane changes with the implementation with Mountain Lion, I had to stop using my MS Explorer mouse with my Macbook, which was a great mouse. This mouse came the closest in 4-button fucntionality of a MS mouse, which is still better than the Logitech mice. The touch scroll fucntion is decent, but occasionally goes spastic and doesn't seem to know when to stop or which direction you've scrolled in.

If you do like I did and set the click fucntions on the swipe tab to be a forward and back keys for Web navigation, definitely be prepared for a lot of annoyance, esp. with the middle click to be the Expose function in Mountain Lion. The mouse frequently is very finicky in recognizing the clicks for forward and back by forcing very precise touches as the top and bottom of the pad, frequently construing either touch to be an Expose click instead, which suggest MS need to rework the recognition pad below the panel and redefine greater areas for the clicks at the top and bottom.

I am reticent to really recommend this mouse, but since it's slightly above average and one of the few mice that work with Mountain Lion, I will.

Comments about Microsoft Explorer Touch Mouse (Black):

Pretty comfy mouse.. I wanted something which would reduce impact on my wrist.. This mouse is just so comfortable and is sensitive enough to do what it is supposed to do. Looks good, has a tiny bluetooth attachment for Laptop ( pretty convenient )Its a yay! Would definitely recommend it.

        Comments about Microsoft Explorer Touch Mouse (Black):

        I am using two of these, one for about a year now, the other, not so long. It takes a little bit of getting used to because you can make it scroll very rapidly. There seems to be a small learning curve on how to scroll accurately and controlling the scroll speed. It can scroll 4-ways although left and right not as fast. I would reccommend this mouse to anyone who is not a cronic whiner, as I have observed in some of these reviews. It appears to be a quality product and would have a third one in use if needed.
