If you travel, and you hate to have the lump of a mouse in your briefcase or bag...this is the answer. It folds so flat that you can barely notice it in your bag, the reciever is so small that you never need to remove it, and it works very, very well as a mouse to boot.

Having said that - it's just incredibly COOL. The articulation of the folding mechanism is something that 20 years ago would have been science fiction. The touchpad works very well also, and the fake "click click click" as you scroll via the touchpad is a nice touch. It also tracks on reflective white desktops that few other mice will.

Really, it's a great product - everyone in my office went "OOOH" when I unwrapped it and demoed it. Your opinion of MS software should not cloud you from admiring their hardware...having said that, the worst thing about this is that it only works on Windows, not Mac.

Good & Bad points for this mouse:

Good points:
Looks nice.
folds flat for easy storage
Scroll button has slight vibration & noise feedback, which is a good response for a flat scroll button.

Bad points:
There is only 1 upright position (I assumed I could set it at different heights to adjust for my wrist- maybe my mistake).
It can rock a bit from side to side due to the design, so not as stable as other mice. I did not like this fact.
It needs a hard surface to work best on -with a soft mouse pad it tended to dig in when pressure was applied, making it harder work.
The buttons although responsive, needed a firm, very slight movement - I felt like I was clicking using the top of my shoulder more ...maybe that was just my feeling about it.

Overall greal for travel and only a short while on the computer, but could not use for work as it was more tiring to use and slowed me down. I am staying with my original mouse.

This is truly one of my favourite gadgets and is an instant hit with anyone I show it to. Very good build quality, durable, no complaints regarding battery life.
Incredible design. I only have a few gripes about the buttons being a tad stiff but I think they're wearing in now so this is no longer as much of an issue. Additionally I found that the software has to be tweaked quite accurately for proper and more detailed work to be done.
Overall, I would definetely recommend.

If you like the look of this mouse, do not hesitate to buy it. It looks even better on the desk. ( I have also ordered the Microsoft Arc Keyboard which despite being on next day delivery - HDNL chose not to deliver it despite being loaded into the van with no delivery attempt ) However the Mouse was delivered next day delivery with Royal Mail which did come.

I have been using the Arc mouse all day now, and for once, my wrist isn't hurting. The most comfortable mouse I have ever used. It has a very nice feel to it, portraying a nicely built product.

The touch controls for scroll/middle click are all very fluid and sensitive. ( of course you can change the sensitivity settings with Microsoft Mouse settings which will automatically download and install as long as your using Windows 7 ) The haptic feedback is excellent and it honestly feels like your scrolling an actual scroll wheel. This can also be turned off.

I also use Ubuntu 12.04. I have not used the Arc mouse in Ubuntu just yet so I can't comment on OS compatibility.

To turn it on you "bend" it to shape, don't be put off by the 'sound' of bending the mouse. It also contours to the shape of your palm nicely.

So overall, I'm very pleased with the Arc Mouse and would not hesitate to recommend it.

Cheers!

My experience using the Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse so far has been absolutely amazing. The overall look and feel of the device is very, very, modern and is something that people ten or even five years ago would have considered a futuristic device. Firstly the fold-down to turn off mechanism is extremely sturdy and has a number of metallic plates inserted so most persons will not have to worry about it snapping in half or breaking. What surprised me the most was the scroll area which has haptic feedback. When I first ran my finger over it, it actually felt as if I was using a traditional scroll wheel and the sound also mimics the speed at which you flick it. I've actually turned it off on mine, not because I don't like it, but because I prefer input devices to be unnoticeable when needed rather than a distraction. However as much as I have used this one thing does not go away, and that is the bewilderment and awe in people's eyes when they see it in person. Lastly, the mouse is great size and almost feels moulded to fit my hand. When compared to other non-gaming mice, wired or wireless, this is definitely a keeper.

I need to use my PC a lot, so a mouse selection is a very important process for me. So far, the Arc Touch is one of the best I have ever used. Great and neat design, excellent motion response and it feels comfy when you use it. Definitely a must-have accessory.

I purchased this mouse to use with my Lenovo X220 running Ubuntu (11.04 'Natty').

The mouse ships with batteries and a USB receiver. I unpacked the mouse, placed the batteries, plugged in the USB receiver and "snapped" it to power it up. It worked immediately with Ubuntu without any further set-up or tweaking.

The mouse is very light, fully functional, stylish and a pleasure to use. For reference, the other pointing device that I use is an Apple Magic Mouse. The Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse is a great desktop or travel mouse.
