I was search for a replacement mouse to my Microsoft 5000 Bluetooth mouse because the Bluetooth connection kept dropping from my laptop which made the mouse worthless 20% of the time. I did at least five hours of research on the next mouse I wanted. It had to be wireless, feature a nano USB connector, and be small and lightweight. I was between the Microsoft 4000, Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse, and the Logitech Mx Anywhere. The Microsoft 4000 was the cheapest ($15 on sale at Best Buy - I actually bought it for my wife), the Logitech felt like the best traditional mouse ever but the $59.99 price had me unsure, and the Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse felt great and looked different than anything else I had ever seen and seemed to have some unique features. I found the mouse on eBay for about half of the retail price including shipping. So I figured I'd give it a try and resell it for close to what I paid for it if I didn't like it during a week or so of use. I had read some reviews saying it takes a lot of "getting used to" because it isn't anything like a traditional mouse feel. I was adjusted within 20 minutes and I've never used a better mouse. The feel is perfect for me - average sized men's hands. If you have really large hands it might feel a bit small. It functions perfectly and the touch scroll bar that replaces the traditional wheel is AMAZING! I really like that when you fold the mouse flat it turns off. I was always replacing batteries in my old mouse because I hated flipping the mouse over and flipping the on/off button. The Arc Touch mouse folds flat for easy storage and adds to battery life savings! If you have ever wanted more out of a mouse you have to give this thing a try. I don't always review products - but this mouse is so great that I had to make sure I added my two cents for others researching mice like I was a couple weeks ago. Wish there were more positive reviews online for the Microsoft Arc Touch mouse so people would know to give it a try.
