5.0 out of 5 stars The best portable mouse to date 14 Feb 2009
By John Nunn VINE VOICE
What a great portable mouse. This is one of best designed portable mice I have ever used. Not only does it look nice, it is a pleasure to use. It fits into your hand perfectly and glides across the working surface with almost frictionless grace. The accuracy of the device is superb thanks to laser optics, making it more that suitable for detailed graphics work as well as gaming applications.

The wireless receiver is very small and only protrudes from the USB port slightly. When travelling the USB receiver is held securely to the mouse by a magnetic clamp, the mouse then folds up for easy storage. An included pouch ensures the mouse does not get scratched in transit.

Personally I prefer the less colourfull version (Microsoft Arc Mouse - Black).

3.0 out of 5 stars Good until i changed the batteries 9 Feb 2011
brilliant mouse to use easy to pack because of the compact design, really very nice to hold and customizable buttons was a nice feature.
the problem with this device was that after changing the batteries it desynchronized and there are no buttons to resynchronize it on the mouse or the receiver. I've tried it on other computers to see if it's the computer not the mouse but it seems when the mouse desynchronizes you just can't get it to resynchronize on any computer.

1.0 out of 5 stars The mouse quits working soon 15 July 2010
I bought this arc mouse in April. The mouse worked fine until a couple of days ago and it just stopped working. I have changed the batteries and tried it on my pc and laptop, but it does not work. The battery indicator turns green for a few seconds with fresh batteries installed, then fades out and then nothing. I searched the relevant posts on internet and found this issue seems quite popoular. The product may be defective.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best mouse I've used 18 April 2011
By K. Jamal TOP 500 REVIEWER
I have been using this mouse for 5 months and it has been a treat to use. With the tail extended, it is a nice size to hold, even for average small hands. Because it curves forward, you can effectively alter the size of the mouse by holding it differently, something you cannot do with mice which have button type pads at the front. Initially I bought a generic arc mouse which was much cheaper but it only lasted a few weeks. It dropped down the side of my table and just broke. Same thing has happened to this one and no damage done. (I am not butter fingers...just too much clutter on my desk!) It is sturdy, well built and strong. Batteries last a pretty long time and will last a lot longer if the tail is folded in as that switches it off.
As we all know a relaxed hand has fingers which fold inwards, so most importantly the shape of the mouse follows the natural bend of the hand. It feels very ergonomic and I haven't suffered from any kind of strain. If I ever have to replace this, it will be with its twin.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice little mouse but.... 27 Dec 2010
Well put together, good shape, works well and installs (windows 7) easily.
Folds nicely, which turns it off, making it small and easily stuffed into laptop bag or pocket with USB sender stored, magnetically under the mouse...good.

However who ever designed the position of the browser back button must have been more closely related to apes than most humans as you need a thumb about twice as long as normal to reach it....so it doesn't get used, very annoying and very badly designed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great mouse - stopped working!!!! 30 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase
I bought this arc mouse in September. Brilliant design, easy to use, great foldaway feature. The mouse worked fine until a few days ago and it just stopped working. I have changed the batteries several times and tried it on different computers, but it does not work. The battery indicator light turns green for a few seconds after installing new batteries, then fades out. So after three weeks or so its now a piece of junk. Searching around I am certainly not the only one to have this problem. Thanks Microsoft...I wanted to give this zero stars...!!!!

By russky
Great mouse to use, works on any surface, very fast and sensitive and looks very nice.
But both mine and my boy-friend's mice stopped working after less than a year. And since we got them in US, we can't get a replacement. So if you are buying one, make sure you can easily return it and get it replaced.
Considering they are not that cheap, needless to say I am a bit disappointed with the quality

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for laptop presentations 19 April 2009
By Rod H
Verified Purchase
This mouse is excellent. It's comfortable and light and the fold-up "on-off" action makes it even more easy to stow away(it comes with a travel pouch too). The use of a AAA battery to power it means that there's no charging system to lug around and the tiny wireless receiver seems capable of operating at any practical range.
If you have Powerpoints with hyperlinks that your presenter is unable to operate then it's very useful.
It might seem a tad expensive but it's a quality build.
