Summary: I like it, but had to get used to the handling. I have big hands and my fingers cramped - only in the beginning. Looks absolutely cool though and is very easy to pack! Work with it every day, all day.
Summary: The Arc Touch replaces my Arc Mouse on my employer supplied laptop. So, it's used constantly, all day long, five days a week. The Touch has the same nice shape for the hand, as the original Arc, with the slope being more gentle in the front, so the Touch is about a quarter inch longer than the original Arc. The touch scroll bar has required some attention to get the hang of it. It's not at all like a scroll wheel, and requires a lighter touch.
Summary: I have a magic trackpad for my macbook. I bought this mouse since I travel quite a bit and needed a better mouse than the trackpad that came with my windows laptop. I use windows only software which has lots of precise buttons and links I have to push. The HP laptop's trackpad is kind of small and mediocre. My setup is a laptop with a second screen at home and just a laptop and the mouse when I am on the road. I like using This mouse has great wheel feedback.
Summary: At first I had a lot of trouble adjusting to this mouse. The scroll pad, in place of the scroll wheel, is pretty sensitive to touch, and I kept bumping it, changing modes, and so on. After a couple of months I have gotten used to it. For scrolling around Web pages or long documents, it's incredibly natural and versatile. The palm curve of the mouse is just about right as well.
Summary: Not sure if it is the design that causes it to freeze or a different problem? The mouse works when it is bent as shown in the picture. It is off when it is flat. When using the mouse you put some pressure on it and I don't know if it triggers the on/off? I like the performance, feel and portability.
Summary: The good... the weight of this item is so light, it is extremely easy to operate and carry. The on-off mechanism operated by bending or straightening the mouse is pure genius! The mouse is extremely comfortable in the hand. It looked kind of large to me in the pictures and video, but it is actually a very nice size. Not too big, not to small. Love it! The catch...
Could have been better but still the best mouse out there

Summary: It is an excellent piece of hardware, so much so that this is the second time I am buying this. Now to the bad part, wish it was Bluetooth or at least USB receiver was programmable/ replaceable. I misplaced the USB receiver of my earlier piece and found out that you can not replace it. Only option is to buy a new one. That sucks big time :-(.
Summary: This is a really neat design, and it does get some looks and inquiries in public, but after you get over the modern design (which is very well designed and built - solid, snaps into place well, doesn't unsnap during use), it's really just a mouse. It works like a mouse. I like the haptic feedback where the wheel should be, scrolls well. Overall, it's a well built and designed mouse, and functions well.
Summary: In my ever present quest of volume and weight reduction, i have found a travel mouse that isn't a travel mouse.. Fully functional, good fit in palm, what more can I say. Oh yeah...the design isn't too bad either.
