    Something Different that works great

    I always wanted an Arc mouse, even the first gen. Saw this on sale for $23.99 and just had to get it! The mouse is really portable and the snap action is really cool. I dig the scrolling, especially with haptic feedback and page up/page down buttons. Great mouse for work, got some interesting comments on it (mainly "what is that?" comments). Works on both PC and Mac, and I was able to find drivers for Mac and change the functionality of the keys to suit my needs. I think the Cement Grey color is the best, and looks more sleek/professional than black (especially with the cool pattern). Downside is that there is no horizontal scrolling or forward and back buttons on the side of the mouse. Also I've been told that the receiver can get easily lost, although the magnet that holds onto it is pretty strong so hopefully I don't have that misfortune. Overall, I love this mouse even more than my Magic Mouse, and hopefully Microsoft makes another one with horizontal scrolling and forward/back buttons to make it perfect!

    An art piece to your living room media center

    Purchased this while on sales as a great deal comparing to its original price when it first came out. Sleek design that immediately adds taste and decoration to my media center in the living room. This is more like a mouse to use during the tea time for a simply clicking away. However, the clicking-motion is made to be closer to the front edge of the mouse. That means if you have a short finger and casually press down in the middle to the rear side of the button, it won't click, because again, the clicking-motion is more on the front edge. But after getting to used to it, you will be fine for the moment until next use. It's very sleek looking and thin profile, you won't feel a solid hold in your hand, so I wouldn't say this is an everyday mouse or a mouse for your work. But perfect for living room because of its modern look.

    Microsoft has spent a lot of effort on its input devices over the years, and it shows. This "Arc mouse 2.0" is no different - goes flat as a board, so even though it's a full-size mouse, it's the best travel mouse around, since it slides into any pocket and doesn't bulge out like regular mice. The batteries in the mice create a small bulge, but nothing of note. Buttons and scrolling are responsive. Scroll isn't a wheel, but touch-sensitive slide. Bought for my girlfriend to work, and she says "Tell them it works well, fits my hand, and doesn't hurt my hand or wrist".

    Very cool.. Takes a learning curve

    I found the mouse to be easy as to to install and set up. It's very cool shape. I especially like how the power is turned off when you flatten the mouse. My biggest problem with wireless mice and keyboards is how often there is no way to easily power it off. I just push down and it's off, saving the battery. The small width takes some getting used to. You have to re-learn how to grip it. The center stripe/scroll is a bit weird and takes a while to get used to. I still often have to look to see if I'm swiping it or a mouse button, Overall, a nice tool.

    I bought this right before Christmas and gave my friend as a Christmas gift. She wanted a mouse for a while, so she is exited when she got it. It is beautifully designed, and she liked the color and the way it is turned on and off. However, sometimes it is not that easy to scroll when you are browsing websites. Other than that, everything is good, especially as a gift.

    i got arc1 before and really liked it. so was amazed by the arc touch design, but the white does not look so decent as it in the picture. And it is reasy to be carried and saves a lot of space. but it is not so easy to reach the click points and hard to hold. even my boyfriend feels hard to hold.

    Great design but awful for regular use.

    I love the look and portability of this mouse. But after a couple of weeks of regular use my hand and wrist were constantly sore and stif. For a mouse, nothing could be worse. I've ditched it for a Logitech m525 (18$-amazon) and will never use this awesome looking mouse again.

    Use to carry a regular/air mouse but the buttons would get pushed and actually ruined one that way. This one is compact and very easy to carry around. Just like anything else took some time to get use to. Once pass that great portable mouse. Still on my first pair of AAA batteries. I like!!

    Poor quality and design

    I was seeking a mouse that could emulate my apple mouse, and all the reviews and ads indicated this device. Wow was I deceived. Yet again, Microsoft delivers cheap plastic and rough textures that fail to provide style and ergonomics.

    Look good but not very responsive

    I brought mouse because it looks good but hard to use when it is not very responsive and delay when I moved the cursor around my screen. The computer is a new HP Intel i5 laptop, so I don't think slowness is an issue.

    Bought this seeking a smaller Mouse to carry, and hoped the scroll feature worked. But its a terrible excuse for a Mouse, and makes me want to steer clear of any other current Microsoft Designed hardware.

    I've wanted one of these for awhile so when I saw them as the deal of the day over Christmas, I not only got one for myself, but one for my father as well. Great product and easy to use and install.

    My review of this product is that it is an excellent mouse that is easy to use, is contoured to fit your hand and turns off to save the battery. I would definitely recommend this product.

    Didn't like this mouse at all! It's flexible and "bends" at the slightest touch. Moved on me constantly.. very cheaply made, threw it out! Not even worth returning it.

    Great start to a good concept but needs better buttons and a real wheel to operate correctly. Otherwise it's a great design and works smooth

    This is an excellent mouse for the money. It was easy to set up and worked immediately with my Mac book. I'm very pleased with the quality.
