      I bought this mouse for my laptop. I do not have huge hands, but prefer full-sized mice over the small laptop ones. But, this one was perfect. When folded, it's small enough to fit into any pocket in my bag, and when opened, it felt good in my hand. Also, I like the way how I can tuck in the receiver into the mouse. Very convenient.
      But there are some drawbacks.
      The back button is located far too forward for my grip. Sometimes, I have to grip the mouse a little to sideways to get my thumb right on the back button. Also the scroll wheel is not totally silent. It is not greatly disturbing, but when I use it in the library which I do often, I tend to use my arrow keys to scroll down so I don't disturb others.
      Other than that, it is a great mouse.

      I needed a more precise mouse for my photo editing work. This mouse is definitely better than others I've used, but I find it goes through batteries quickly. Also, there are times it just stops working, then I figured out that this will happen if the 'scanning window' gets any lint or dusk collected around the 'window.' Other than the fact that the batteries don't seem to last long with this mouse, I am happy with it. It's comfortable to use.

                  This mouse is great. I never enjoyed navigating a laptop until this mouse was given to me as a gift, though I see no reason why it wouldn't work equally well with a desktop PC. I have since purchased another as a gift for my father-in-law.

                  Love this mouse. Work at a computer 12 hrs a day. This is well worth the investment even with light use. I HIGHLY encourage you to purchase this product. I have had several other people in the office buy this mouse as it is reasonably priced, ergonomically correct and comfortable. They have all been as pleased as me.

                      Perfect size/angle to reduce wrist pain.

                      I hooked it up immediatly. It looks cool, but it took me a few days to realize/remember that my wrist was not hurting anymore.

                      I recommend it for anyone with wrist pain. I have a permanent injury. The doc suggested a pretty radical surgery. I decided to put it off until I could not deal with the pain. When I started using the MS Arc mouse, the pain subsided.

                      I still have pain, but not when I use this mouse.

                            Comfortable and works well. USB transceiver is small, which is nice. Battery stops when you fold it up. You can really keep the transceiver in your laptop always since it's so small. (Although there is a magnetic slot for it on the mouse itself.) The only thing I wish it also had is a horizontal scrolling option, which I got used to with my last mouse. But if you don't need it, this is a nice choice.

                              The mouse is comfortable with a nice texture to it, easy to install, very easy to carry since it can be folded to almost half the size of a tennis ball(maybe less), and very reliable. I use it for my laptop when I am writing a paper and I do not want to use the trackpad. Highly recommend the product.

                                This is a great, easy to use mouse. I've used various Microsoft Mouse types through the years and this is the same, good, high quality.

                                      I just purchased my second MicroSoft Arc mouse after many years of use. Love the fold-up feature that turns off the battery. Fits my hand like a glove. Travels well in a nifty carrying case. Stylistically looks great, and performs well.

                                      The mouse is the most comfortable I've used for my hand. It is accurate, easy to setup, and exteremly portable. Kind of has a big receiver to plug into the computer compared to Logitech receivers, it sticks out three times as far, but maybe it has longer range or something- not a big deal.

                                        I use the Arc Mouse for my desktop, laptop and netbook computers. Very easy to use and the design makes it very comfortable to use. It takes just a little adjustment after switching from an optical mouse, but you will not go back.

                                          I use the arc mouse by Microsoft on a daily basis, and am on computer (due to work) regularly. The mouse is reliable, easy to use, very compact, and the way it folds it becomes self-protective. I also like the magnetic feature holding the micro-tranceiver in place. This is the third of these units I have purchased over the years, and no negatives from me at all. Great product.

                                              I do marine electronics field service, and I carry my laptop with accessories in a backpack to every job. Most "portable" mouse devices are too small for my hand. This ARC mouse folds up nicely, with a magnetic storage spot for the USB transmitter/ receiver. I keep it in a small digital camera bag in my backpack. When in use, it unfolds to a full sized mouse. It is the best field mouse I've ever used.

                                                Comments about Microsoft ZJA-00001 Arc Mouse (Black):

                                                This sleek, light beauty works great and makes the "mouse-using" experience a worthwhile one.

                                                However, its size makes it accident prone - And...the "scroll wheel" is usually the first to go!

                                                When the "scroll wheel" stopped working after my first Arc mouse dropped, I had to purchase my current one!

                                                The lesson here....This mouse was awesome enough that I replaced it with ANOTHER Arc Mouse.

                                                Its worth the buy.
