Microsoft Touch Mouse Review


Microsoft may be best known for their operating system and Office suite, but their presence in the hardware market has been there for longer than the past decade. They've sold everything from web cameras and joysticks to gaming mice. While they've...

Microsoft has priced the Touch Mouse at Rs. 3,999 in India. They say that the product is made for lifestyle users and therefore, there’s a very niche audience for this product. Apart from the weight and the slippery feel of the mouse, we’re quite...

Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse Review


The Arc Touch Mouse is the latest in the Arc line—a series of surprisingly design-minded peripherals from Microsoft. The Arc Touch takes the already high-concept line into the stratosphere with a design so innovative that it's almost worth a buy for...

Not ergonomic; only two real buttons; not suited at all for gaming

Review Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse


Foldaway. The wireless Arc Touch Notebook mouse can impress thank ...

Altogether a for Windows new and well adapted scroll concept meets a very mobile Notebook mouse. Due to the mediocre sensor performance we were however unable to offer an unrestricted buy recommendation

Microsoft Arc Mouse


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...

Pretty design and incredibly compact size. Comes with a travel pouch

Very uncomfortable shape. Odd sensor placement makes cursor control tricky

Microsoft seems to have solved the connectivity issues that plagued its previous 2.4GHz wireless peripherals, but this little guy is just too uncomfortable for us to recommend, despite its sexy design.

Microsoft Touch Mouse


The Microsoft Touch Mouse offers useful multitouch gestures in a comfortable and sleek design.

Easy to install ; Quick and responsive multitouch gestures ; Sleek, comfortable design ; Software makes it easier to multitask

A tad expensive ; Doesn't perform pinch-to-zoom ; Only works with Windows 7 systems

The Microsoft Touch Mouse offers slick control and a sleek design. This device is comfortable for long-term use, and it interpreted our gestures accurately. We especially like how the IntelliPoint software makes it easier to multitask than the Windows...

Microsoft Touch Mouse (Black)


Microsoft's Touch Mouse is the product of a research project Microsoft conducted a few years ago intended to reimagine the role of the lowly computer mouse in anticipation of the growing popularity of touch-based input. Designed to work exclusively...

The Microsoft Touch Mouse offers intuitive touch-based navigation that complements standard mousing in Windows 7.

At $80, this mouse is only for those who are the most curious about touch-based desktop or laptop computing.

We like the Microsoft Touch Mouse for its thoughtful, complementary gestures that simplify the experience of moving in and around Windows 7 applications.

Microsoft Explorer Touch Mouse


The Explorer Touch Mouse offers up unique touch-based scrolling with haptic feedback for a respectable price, but its ergonomics could be better.

Designed for right- or left-handed use. Wireless. Can be used on a wide variety of surfaces

Design is not ergonomic

Microsoft Touch Mouse


Looking for a PC equivalent of Apple's Magic Mouse? The Microsoft Touch Mouse is it, and as unique and useful a pointing device as you'll find for Windows 7 PCs.

Offers full gesture support. Works for right- and left-handed users. Wireless. Allows hyperscrolling

Compatible only with Windows 7. Not ideal for gaming

Microsoft Arc Touch


A chic look and comfortable feature are the attributes found in the Microsoft Arc Touch mouse, but is the expense worth it?

Unique, portable design. Touch scroll has vibrating feedback. Thumbnail USB has innovative storage on base of mouse. BlueTrack laser technology allows the mouse to be used on a variety of surfaces. Ambidextrous

No browser buttons. Expensive

Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse (Black)


Microsoft has come up with a unique new product in the Arc Touch Mouse, thanks to its clever, convertible design and its touch-sensitive scroll wheel. Like the original Arc Mouse , and the Philippe Starck-designed mice before it, the Arc Touch Mouse is...

Distinct convertible design lets you pack the mouse flat for travel; touch-sensitive scroll tab has vibration feedback and accelerated scrolling features; BlueTrack sensor lets you use the mouse on a variety of surfaces; small USB receiver stays out of...

Expensive; scroll tab occasionally unresponsive; lacks heft compared with standard desktop mice; no thumb-side forward-and-back buttons.

Microsoft's new Arc Touch Mouse features a travel-friendly design and some clever technical additions to its touch-sensitive scroll tab. Neither of those features makes it better than a full-size desktop mouse, but the Arc Touch Mouse is different...
