"Wha? No Bluetooth in an otherwise PERFECT travel mouse?"
20 November 2013
Pros: Closer to feel of a desktop mouse than any travel mouse. Fits palm instead of just fingers. Turns off & packs flat. Comparisons to desktop mice are unfair - compared to typical travel mouse, its amazing.
Cons: Here we have a mouse PERFECTLY designed for travel with a compact laptop or netbook, but it's not Bluetooth?? Duh. MS would sell untold thousands if it were equipped and marketed correctly!!
Summary: I was pretty excited about getting this mouse at first given its unique features but after less than two months of use it is literally coming apart in my hand. After examining further, I noticed that a small plastic connection broke inside where the rubber body meets the plastic. Now the two pieces are separating and the gap seems to get worse with every use.
Summary: The mouse turns on by bending/bowing it out. It snaps in to place but not far enough out because as you put the weight of your hand on it, it tends to trip the sensor and temporarily turns off the mouse until you try and bend it out again. I would not recommend.
Nice concept but having issues after less than a week of use

Summary: After unboxing this mouse I immediately feel in love with it's design and comfort. The arc provides just enough support and the tracking is great for what this device was designed to do. This isn't a gaming mouse by any stretch of the imagination so don't expect performance grade precision. It's a mouse built for mobility. When folded it can fit into a pocket or slipped into a purse or travel bag very nicely.
Great idea, but nothing except problems with mine.

Summary: The right click has never worked and it scrolls on it`s own (frequently).It also left clicks when ever it has a notion to and many times does not left click when I want it to. I really should see about getting it replaced, but I have been so busy lately.
Summary: I had a logitech mouse, It can be used on all different kind surface like fabric, paper, plastic.... This Microsoft mouse only looks cool, and it can be only used on good unreflected surface....
Summary: Love the design... but the left mouse button does not "click" reliably. Therefore it is often difficult to tell when an action is completed. You miss the haptic feed back. The problem does not exist in the right button. For that reason the user experience becomes an annoying one!
Summary: This mouse is not at all comfortable to operate. On top of this, cursor gets struck quite often. Until you wait for few seconds or do some keyboard action, it won't be released. This bug sucks at all times.
Summary: I really liked the concept of this mouse, but unfortunately I find it very unpractical and can't be productive using it. Pros: - Very clever design that's easy to store and transport. Fits easily in any bag, and even your jeans pocket! - very very very long battery life. - It has a dragon! Cons: - Unless you're going to position your fingers at the edge of the mouse buttons (i don't), clicking will need a little bit of extra effort.
