A very trendy and neat on-the-go mouse
on November 20, 2016
A bit of a mixed bag with this one. Right out the door, you won't be getting as much as a 34 button gaming mouse or whatever, but what you do get to compromise with the mobility is good enough.
The touch strip is the coolest thing about it. When I first started using the mouse, I had trouble finding it, but in a week or two you get the hang of it and don't feel the need to feel for a physical wheel. The tactile feedback comes in handy and really sells the whole "who needs to roll a wheel when you can gliiide" aesthetic that I get from it.
The usb dongle is also really cool, smooth plastic on the outside, and something that I was really tickled about was they printed all their FCC warnings and such on the actual usb metal part- novel and smart. The back of the bending arch part is magnetic, and a strong magnet at that. I haven't had the dongle fall off once. You can even lift the whole mouse with the dongle attached holding only the dongle. (Okay, enough with the word "dongle")
The hinge is so neat. My dad had the original arc mouse, the one that folded the opposite direction, and so when I learned that the new one bended the other way, I was afraid it would collapse if I rested my hand on it. Luckily this thing locks into position.
When I got this thing, I was afraid that it was going to have the old Microsoft logo printed on it, since that's what all the marketing images have. luckily, the days of Ballmer past are all but forgotten with the new fresh logo emblazoned on it.
