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...

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.

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

Swiftpoint mouse review

 

It's no secret that one of our major gripes with some of today's laptops are their wonky and uncomfortable touchpads, and well, apparently Swiftpoint understands the pain. No, that tiny, oddly shaped optical mouse that your eyes keep gravitating...

Really innovative design ; Strong mobile substitute for touchpads ; Awesome tilt scrolling capability

No software for customizing buttons or tricks ; USB dongle blocks ports charging ; A bit expensive

Microsoft Arc Keyboard hands-on

 

Microsoft's Best Buy-exclusive Arc Keyboard still won't be hitting stores for another couple of weeks (February 21st, to be specific), but we were lucky enough to get our hands on one a little early, and figured we'd share a few impressions with you,...

Sleek, compact design ; Magnetic storage for USB receiver ; Great for a non-primary PC

A bit too small for full-time use ; Arrow keys replaced by single d-pad key ; Somewhat pricey

Microsoft Arc Mouse (Black)

 

It took us a few minutes to realize what Microsoft's new Arc Mouse is all about. The collapsible design at first suggested that it's both a full-size mouse and a notebook mouse in one product. We were confused as to who would want such a thing. Upon...

Unique appearance; collapsible design saves bag space and secures wireless receiver; easy to set up.

Side button hard to use with a standard mouse grip.

Microsoft's Arc mouse is almost as functional as its form is pleasing. The travel-friendly features make perfect sense, and in general, it's a serviceable mouse for Macs and PCs. Only a few minor design issues hold it back.

Microsoft Touch Mouse

 

Around the same time as the Explorer Touch Mouse, however, Microsoft took another click at being different, in its prosaically named Touch Mouse. (We know, it sounds like the same mouse, but trust us, it's not. This one's minus the word "Explorer.")...

Support for multitouch gestures right on mouse's upper surface ; Quick setup and reasonable learning curve ; Great for multitaskers working on multiple monitors in Windows 7

Pricey ; Not good for gaming ; On some PCs, USB receiver requires use of extension cable to get a clear signal

Microsoft's clever Windows 7-specific mouse brings some of Win 7's keyboard shortcuts to the tips of your mousing fingers. It's a great fit for efficiency hounds.

The concept of replacing traditional mechanical buttons with touch sensitive buttons is finding it's way onto more and more computer products. Every monitor I've owned for the last few years now has had touch sensitive buttons. Same goes for the latest...

Multi-touch gestures add a lot of new functionality to your mouse ; Sleek and modern design looks great on your desk ; Micro USB receiver with stow and go storage in the bottom of the mouse
