Description

A special-edition mouse inspired by Surface that works from up to 30 feet away.

Arc Touch Mouse Surface Edition

A flat-out great mouse

Inspired by Surface, this special edition Arc Touch Mouse is designed for life on the go. It uses Bluetooth 4.0, so it works from up to 30 feet away, and the BlueTrack Technology1 lets you use it on rough wood or carpet surfaces. The touch strip uses haptic feedback to scroll vertically. And it's easy on the wrists, shaped to match the natural curve of your hand. When you’re done working, just flatten and slip it into your pocket or purse.

Unique

Microsoft has done it again! This mouse is not only eye-appealing, but useful, in the sense that it saves battery easier than a regular mouse, and in a sense of portability. Using an external mouse is easier than the one built in the keypad of the computer, but it's a nuisance to have to shove a large mouse in the computer bag, and have it create a lump. This mouse becomes flat, so I can fit it perfectly in the computer bag, or even in my pocket. This super-portable mouse allows me to bring it to and from my classes, and just fold it flat when I'm going elsewhere. I highly recommend it for college students, or anyone who carries a laptop wherever they go.

Worse than the touch pad

I bought this mouse about a week ago with my surface book and was expecting it to work like a normal mouse, but the shape is just too uncomfortable to use properly. the click buttons are too orientated to the front of the mouse which makes it hard or impossible to click if you have a 'low' grip. The sensor is also at the front side of the mouse and therefore the mouse wont recognize any tilting of the back end of the mouse. I only realized how much I relied on this after buying this mouse, I find myself constantly pressing minimise or maximise instead of close in the top right corner, due to the weird placement of the sensor. The touch scroll wheel in the middle is also uncomfortable to use and vastly inferior to a physical wheel it has no click option and is often unresponsive, I can understand the reasoning for the design but it just is not worth the effort in my opinion. After a few days of use I have got to a point where I can use it almost as well as a normal mouse but I am still occasionally misclicking due to the sensor placement. I like the portability of the mouse but I find the touch pad easier to use and more accurate.

Hi Ryan, Thanks for sharing your feedback with us. It can take time to get accustomed to the forward sensor and other design features the Arc Touch Mouse has. After you have spent some time with it if you feel like it is still not a good fit, we would encourage you to check out a Microsoft Store. There you can try out a variety of different mice that we offer and pick the one that's best for you.

Handy and reliable and highly portable

I don't always need a mouse, but it's there for me - in my slim briefcase - whenever I do. Great design, easy to use, tough as any electronic device I own.

Nice design but...

The adjustable arc is a very nice feature. The center slide to scroll is a great idea, but not executed to perfection. Sometimes it works and sometimes - not so much. Sometimes it just dies and the only way to revive it is to pull a battery and wait for 5 or ten seconds then re-install the battery. The instructions say that it will do other wonderful things, but so far no luck.

Not working well with MacOS

I bought this product because of reviews about it's ergonomy. However, I'm notable to use it with MacOS properly. When I turn my computer on, I have to re-pair it again. Even, it some times just disconnects, and doesn't connect without re-pairing.

Microsoft Arc review

Just acquired and found to be excellent - quick response to buttons and ease of use. I have just travelled from, USA to UK and found it easy to flatten and pack - great versatility.

Dependable and Versatile mouse

We purchased an older version of the MS Arch mouse 4 years ago. It is used with a Dell XPS 13 laptop. It uses a dongle, not blue tooth as the latest model does. Ours has been flawless. We use it to advance and point in Power Point (as any mouse can be used). We have not even changed the battery yet. The center metal touch-sensitive strip works just as the old mouse wheels do. Folds flat and travels in a small pouch in the laptop sleeve. Great purchase. Durable.

Lose Connection with Laptop FREQUENTLY- Windows 10

Do not buy this mouse. Stick with the Nano USB version because the mouse CONSTANTLY lose connection during use. Just purchased 2016 Toshiba Laptop with Windows 10 preinstalled, received the laptop 2 days before the mouse arrived. Just received the mouse at the end of June 2016.
