  • Conclusion: Occasionally Microsoft comes up with an interesting peripheral product such as the SideWinder Mouse and sems to have done it again with its Arc Mouse. As well as looking unlike any other mouse with its elegant arc shape, it can be folded in half for packing.

  • Conclusion: The Microsoft Arc Mouse's high quality propels it to the head of the travel mouse pack.
  • Pros: Full-size mouse that folds smaller than most notebook mice. Virtually weightless. Extra tiny receiver can stow beneath mouse when not in use. Sharp precision.
  • Cons: Relies on AAA batteries with no recharge option. Cannot be used when hinge is folded.

Microsoft Arc Wireless Compact Keyboard

Benchmark Reviews
23 November 2009
  • Conclusion: Performance on this keyboard was not an issue. I never noticed any hiccups typing whether I was using it for hours at a time, or using it touch-and-go. The wireless did not seem to be affected by other wireless devices at all, and the range of 15ft is more than adequate for most users. Appearance was a focal point for this keyboard. You can really tell that their design team put a great deal of effort into making this look as good as it performs.
  • Pros: Small and lightweight, Very attractive design, Wireless with mini-USB adapter that easily stores under keyboard, Battery life indicator, Dead simple to set up and use, Great wireless robustness
  • Cons: Slightly lacking HTPC keys, but it is not necessarily designed to be one, Not very comfortable after using for an extended period of time

  • Excerpt: The Microsoft Arc Mouse makes cordless computer peripherals desirable again. This eye catching accessory is a wireless mouse that easily folds up for easy storage. It's got a massive 30-foot range and is available in black and red. It's smooth clean design not only looks good, it's easy on the hands too.

  • Summary: The Microsoft Arc Mouse is a stylish mobile mouse with nice functionality. It has a cool sleek design and has some nice simple features making this a great mobile mouse. The profile of this mouse is pretty cool and will surely turn heads when displayed. Lack of major features is made up for in pure simplicity and great performance from a mobile mouse. The great price make this mouse an even better deal.

  • Excerpt: Ah, the fashion mouse. You know the one: It’s designed by the industrial design team of the moment, and it not only lets you move your PC’s cursor but also tells everyone that you care about Design (you know, with a capital D). Unfortunately, what this mouse tells anyone who knows about mice is that you’d rather use an incredibly uncomfortable device that looks cool than one that properly fits your paw and gives you good control over your cursor.
  • Pros: Pretty design and incredibly compact size. Comes with a travel pouch!
  • Cons: Very uncomfortable shape. Odd sensor placement makes cursor control tricky.

  • Excerpt: As an attendee at Mobius this year I was given a Microsoft Arc Mouse. While mice don’t tend to excite me, this one not only piqued my interest, but has become my every day mouse when using my MacBook with my desktop configuration.

  • Summary: The Arc brings a unique folding design to the portable mouse combining at once style and portability. Despite a few usability and functional issues, the fundamental concept is well executed and well worth the price of admission.
  • Pros: Innovative, functional design, Very comfortable shape, Suitable for users with repetitive stress injuries, Compact USB dongle, Flawless glossy paint finish with rubberized sides and underside, Long purported battery life, Elegant carry case included, Mouse turns off when in folded position, Great range (up to 30 ft.)
  • Cons: Can't track on a glass desk, Lack of heft takes some getting used to, Left side button next to impossible to press, Scroll wheel only scrolls vertically and makes cheap sounds, Mouse not rechargeable

  • Excerpt: Suddenly it seems like it’s keyboard galore on here these days, well two keyboard reviews back to back, maybe not galore but certainly more keyboard than anything else! This new contender has been around for a little while now but it’s a very nice looking prospect for those who want a highly portable, very stylish but still perfectly functional miniature keyboard. The Microsoft Arc is the keyboard that I’m looking at today.
