  • Summary: This is a neat looking unit; however, I have Windows 7 and the only driver available from Microsoaft is for Windows 8. Technical services confirm this to me and suggested I up grade to 8. I will keep the unit and wait for 10.

Not for Windows 7, period.

  • Summary: Stop thinking, "I can get this to work with Windows 7". I promise, you will be disappointed. I tried, even with a Bluetooth 4.0 adapter and the drivers, and it just never worked. The box says it requires Windows 8 for a reason. Google as if you just bought it and your computer won't find it and you'll realize, no one has a real fix for this other than Windows 8. I love the design and feel, but I never had success making it work. Two stars due to design only.

Good design, faulty mouse

Mike Melville, Amazon

  • Summary: It keeps shorting out and sometimes I have to play with it to get it to come on. Seems to be an internal wiring fault. I'm going to have to send it back to get replaced. Other than that I like using it.

Don't buy this!

Clint, Amazon

  • Summary: The scrolling function is awful, erratic at best, and only supports up and down action. Also, with limited use, it is already showing a light brown discoloration around the base and battery door. I would have returned but I was 6 days outside the return windows when I discovered the issues with the scrolling function and decided to see if it could be returned.

Work in Progress

  • Summary: I purchased this for a Samsung 7 Windows 8 tablet to replace my Bluetooth mouse. Doesn't connect and can't figure out how to get it to work. Works on another Bluetooth device. Will keep trying as it's a good design. I've used a USB Arc and find it excellent.

Great when it works

D. Matheny, Amazon
24 September 2014
  • Summary: When I first started using this mouse, I was immediately impressed. It was super easy to get setup on my Windows 8 laptop, and it seems like the perfect little travel mouse. As far as design goes, it's pretty cool: 1) It's a reasonably sized mouse when in use - but folds flat for travelling. That makes it ideal for throwing in a bag with the laptop. 2) The scroll-wheel design is cool as well. It's basically a touch sensor, and only takes a few minutes to get used to.

Getting There

BobbyMcGee, Hewlett-Packard
13 June 2014
  • Summary: I had a really good review written up, but I then noticed that it states to avoid talking about the price of the product. When writing a review on any type of product, a major point to determining how anyone feels about their purchase, starts with how much they spent on it and if they feel like it was worth the buy. Overall, I think that this was a great attempt at a new design, there are still a few bugs to work out with it.

Good looking but funky

Bobbeaux, B&H Photo
19 March 2014
  • Excerpt: This seemed like a good purchase at first but once I got it home and started using it, I don't really like it. First of all, it makes a strange noise that is supposed to simulate clicking of the wheel. It sounds like a creaking spring and is impossible to turn off if you have a Mac. Supposedly you can turn the sound off on windows but I'm not sure. The touch pad on the top didn't seem to track very well. I'd give it 2.5- stars.

Good design, poor execution

LDog17, Hewlett-Packard
26 November 2013
  • Summary: This mouse is difficult to control and only has one setting, it does not contour to your hand, which I thought it did. Also, it's difficult to stop the scrolling noise.
