that's a very good price, never seen it so low. I must get one. thanks for sharing.

Same at John Lewis & Currys-PCWorld for the last couple of days. The reason they dropped I guess.

love mine,out if all the laptops and towers ive built and sold over the last few years never once considered selling my arc,kept it even when no computer.

Worst. Mouse. I. Have. Ever. Owned.

Even if they sold this for £10, I wouldn't use it.

​How so? I've been tempted to get one for a while but don't know too much about them.

Gone for this to add to my newly purchased Surface Pro 4.

Thanks OP!!!

quite fancy one - but still a bit pricey isnt it?

I agree that these are style over substance. I'm putting up with mine because of what I paid for it, but it's nit nice to use. My wife keeps on at me get rid of it. I can certainly see what she means. I think the main problem is the lack of any way to adjust the motion sensitivity - the driver doesnt allow for it like all the other mice I've ever used. I've even posted on Microsoft's support forum in case I was being dumb, but theyve not provided any solution.

Can these also be used as wired (traditional connection)?

It couldn't be any worse than your keyboard!

Tried this a couple of weeks ago, I really don't understand the premium pricing, it didn't translate in use

It is a lovely mouse, but on the three I've had the simulated scroll wheel stops working periodically requiring you to collapse and fold the mouse to get it to work again. "Have you tried turning it off and on again?"

This is a great price. Paid £60 on Wednesday... returning obvs.

Convenient to fold flat in the laptop bag but I never got on with it. Just didn't feel right and the scroll wheel (bar) was fiddly. Sold mine after a couple of weeks.

It's novelty and style over actual substance. The ergonomics are terrible! It's very small so unless you're a petite woman with small hands, its not going to suit unless you like moving a mouse around with your fingertips. The shape is all wrong - it's just a C shape instead of being shaped/sculpted more naturally for your hand. Even after a few hours of continuous use you can't help thinking that this mouse isn't designed to fit your hand, and that you're having to compromise your hand/wrist position to use it.

Page up/down is useful but no back/forward buttons and having scroll swipe instead of a wheel is daft. This biggest novelty of this is most is that fact that you can fold it flat when not in use. To that extent its useful if you occasionally need to use a mouse with a Windows tablet etc, only plan on using it for short periods of time, and walk around everywhere with only a laptop/tablet sleeve rather than a bag, and absolutely must have something that folds flat. However, its that 'fold flat' novelty that compromises it ergonomically for normal, protracted desk use. If you want a mouse for use every day or hours at a time, get a proper mouse, not one of these 'design over substance' ones. I got one of these years ago and after the first couple of weeks, found that I never used it. Either I took a proper mouse with me (Performance MX) or used the touchpad instead.

Had mine well over a year now and still loving it. Like the minimal design , rubbery feel covering, fold flat function (that also acts as on/off) and the way it always instantly connects via Bluetooth. Pleasure to own. Can appreciate that in use it's not everyone's cup of tea though, so if poss have a try first. Not worth the sixty quid or so it cost at launch time but at this price, go on, treat yourself.

Nice price. Microsoft usually make excellent pc hardware. Anyone use this on a mac? Is there any way to configure the haptic feedback?

Thanks for the info. As an owner of fairly large hands I think I'll give this one a miss.

​Have a look at the MX Master mouse in the other thread. Currently on sale for £41. I still prefer the shape of the Performance MX but they no longer make it.

​Bear in mind that the MX Master has loud clicky micro switches on the buttons. Can get distracting at night.

please help me expire this deal, price changed to 59.99

nice looking mouse is it good for gaming man?

is it worth to replace logitech g500 for this mouse

I received mine and prefer gaming mice, however this has won me over to use with my laptop. love that it doesn't stick out like normal mice and connects instantly. dpi is quite good as well.
