Having struggled along with a Logitech M620 for quite a while and got increasingly annoyed with a wheel that had a mind of it's own and would scroll at the drop of a pin, I decided to try the Microsoft Touch Mouse, as it seemed to promise all the benefits of a touch pad with the advantage of being able to physically move the cursor plus a few added features "to make life simpler". But it's a real let-down.

The bad points:
1. The mouse does not feel comfortable in the hand. It feels quite small in the hand, yet too long for my fingers to reach the front. As this seems to be where it is most responsive to touch, this is a problem for me, although I do have relatively short fingers.
2. I have played around with the settings and cannot find a setting that allows me to make a movement and position the cursor where I want it first time. Accuracy is such a problem that the mouse becomes unusable for certain things. For example, finding the corner of a cell in a spreadsheet and dragging it down to copy is almost impossible at normal size. Positioning the cursor whilst writing this review has been a trial.
3. The mouse will not move smoothly across the desktop, feeling like it has been dipped in jam. I cannot use it with my mouse mat and it is only slightly better on a wooden surface.
4. Judgement of the pressure needed on the mouse to get the basic scrolling function to work properly is very difficult and varies across applications.
5. The extra touch functions are similarly difficult to master and I quite often find myself closing windows, snapping etc. by accident and at inappropriate times.
6. Useless for any sort of applications or games requiring precision.

First off I have to say I wanted to love this item. I've used a Microsoft mouse since I can remember, one my last mice I bought in 2000, was an optical intellimouse with a scroll wheel. I liked it so much I went out and bought two more; one for the office, one for home and one to carry in my laptop bag. They lasted for nearly nine years before I had to buy another which I still have and am using now.

First the good points, Its very well made. And that's all I can say positive about it.

Where do I start with the bad? First the weight, it feels three times the weight of the intellimouse with the batteries fitted. So heavy that the first couple of days of use I had aches in my forearm from lifting it off the desk. Which leads to the next issue, shape. Given the weight you need to grip it tighter than you might like to pick it up of the surface but it's hard to get a grip easily and you end up with a hand ache as well. And because of the weight it seems to scrape across the desk surface even though it has the same kind of glide pads as other mice. It's quite low profile as well so if you have large hands it gets to be a chore just to try to keep hold of the thing.

Next bad thing, that scroll surface. It's less accurate than just about anything I know. Motion is jerky, scrolling is useless if you want to be able to easily glide up and down a window and to cap it all you seem to have to scroll in the centre of the mouse or it doesn't register. And if you're used to thumb pressing the side of the mouse to navigate back or forward in the browser history the flaky sensitivity and the frankly wasteful brush gesture will annoy you when it only works 50% of the time.

Finally windows 8.

I bought this for the hell of it when the price dropped below £20, and I'm glad that's all I paid for it. It's not a bad mouse by any means, but it's nowhere near as slick or responsive as Apple's Magic Mouse. (On that note, it does offer basic mouse functionality, left and right click and scroll, on a Mac with Microsoft's generic mouse drivers, despite what either company would have you believe.) As many have said, you have to lift your left finger for right-click to work, and there is no middle button function, but I don't really miss it unless I'm gaming, and then I use my gaming mouse as I always did.

If you're just curious as to what this thing is like to use, I can think of worse ways to spend ~£20. If you need a new mouse for anything other than casual use, it's fine, but I'd look elsewhere unless you're dead set on having something touchy-feely.

I purchased this mouse based on a lot of five star reviews; big mistake,. Also what this touch sensitive mouse appeared to do with specific movement of the finger(s) over the mouse. If you are considering buying this, I urge you to look at the one star reviews, most seem to be very accurate.

What is nice about it:
1) The packaging is amazing, for me too much so but it made believe I was purchasing a quality, top of the range piece of hardware.
2) It feels nice in the palm of my hand and does move smoothly over the mouse mat.
3) The various scrolling options, at first seemed useful but in reality ultimately became more of a gimmick than of real use.
4) Extension lead supplied for placing receiver on the desk top.
5) Receiver can be stored in mouse when on the move.

What I don't like
1) The touch sensitive scrolling is not related accurately to the movement of one's finger. OK if you swipe your finger down the strrip, it scrolls incredibly quickly almost at an uncontrollable rate, if I need to go up or down a page that quickly, it simpler to hit the page up or down on the key board. If you try doing it slowly it is jerky and not atall consistent.
2) If you need to right click to bring up a drop down menu it has to be on the extreme front edge of the RHS. If you just right click it simply removes any highlighted items you might be wishing to cut /paste for example, with the result you have do start again. I don't have particularly long fingers, they are average but this makes for a very frustrating time wasting.
3) In some document formats (e.g.
