today we’re gonna be taking a look at Microsoft’s Ark touch mouse this is a Bluetooth mouse that I think is just really worth the money and a great Buy so let’s go ahead and get started with our review so what comes in the box as you can see is just the mouse as well as the USB dongle that allows you to use it wirelessly.
as you can see it doesn’t include batteries in the box so but the batteries that are needed are to triple-a batteries in their house right there under the mouse and that’s about it so it comes in the box simple enough and let’s go ahead and take a look at how the mouse works alright so we’re gonna go ahead and take our Bluetooth dongle and just plug it straight into our laptop or tablet whatnot and there you have it and that is it.
next all we do is take our arc touch Mouse as you can see it’s completely flat right down straight and this is super cool so all you do is bend it you hear the snap and now it’s on you see the green LED light right there and we can go ahead and use it and I’ll give you a quick demonstration of how the clicking works and just how smooth the mouse works in general.
alright so with any Bluetooth mouse that you use or any mouse that you connect you can control the sensitivity of scrolling or clicking of your trackpad etc so there’s not a point in demonstrating how well the mouse works but again you just bend it to turn it on you see the green light blue light on the bottom and then all you need is that Bluetooth dongle for it to be paired you don’t have to go through any special Bluetooth pairing.
- Sampling: max. 1000 DPI, BlueTrack
- Weight: 89g mouse + batteries + 1g USB sensor
- 2 mouse buttons + multi-function strip
- Dual colored LED shows near-empty battery status
- 2.4 GHz data transfer rate, USB receiver magnetically storable
then clicking who’s very sensitive works very well and what’s cool about the trackpad of scrolling right here is the touchpad right there and all you do is scroll up or scroll down on that silver plate and you’re you actually can feel it vibrating and like a slight clicking when you are scrolling up and down which you can turn that sound off as well but I like it it gives you a good.
sense and feel of how fast you’re scrolling or when you’re scrolling so let’s see if you can hear that, yeah and you can hear that so that’s about it another cool feature I want to show you is flatten it out turns it off bend it turns it on and then right here on the bottom you’ll see that little icon for your USB dongle what happens is you can take your USB dongle and then all you do is place it on.
and it’s just a really smart idea great feature that way you don’t lose that important USB dongle that you need for your mouse to work that’s it that’s the quick and easy review of the Microsoft arc touch Mouse it retails for $59.99 so 60 bucks.
but what’s awesome is both Amazon as well as Best Buy are having a sale on this mouse right now so it’s only $39.99 so I highly recommend this Bluetooth mouse and I think you should go pick it up thanks.
