Earlier this year we looked at three touch sensitive portable mice from the likes of Mad Catz, SpeedLink and Microsoft. Each mouse was distinct in its own right and all three were able to track fine on my Roccat Sota pad, but I ultimately chose...

Microsoft’s Explorer Touch mouse is a black, wireless laser mouse with five programmable buttons – on the right-click, left-click, and the scroll wheel.The ‘wheel’, however, isn’t really a wheel at all. Instead, the Explorer features a silver...

It's a shame that this mouse is held back by its slow sensor and lack of thumb buttons, as the touch-sensitive scroll wheel and the well-designed driver are real strong points for the Microsoft Explorer Touch Mouse. As it is, you'll need to stick to...

Microsoft's Explorer Touch mouse abandons the traditional scroll wheel for a hit-or-miss touch strip that uses vibrating feedback. It's an interesting idea, but our hands tell us you're better off sticking with tradition....

So maybe the actual touch portion of these two mice wasn’t as amazing as I had hoped. But as far as your standard mice are concerned, these two have ‘em beat. When it comes to the every day, basic uses of a mouse, both the Microsoft Touch Mouse and...

De in deze review op touch gebaseerde muizen van Microsoft zijn innovatief en verbeteren op een slimme manier de scrolfunctie van een muis. Met de Touch Mouse kun je op veel manieren met sleepbewegingen Windows 7 makkelijk besturen. Dit gaat jammer...

olarak; Dokunmaya duyarlı yüzeye alışmak biraz zaman alıyor. Ancak alıştıktan sonra her hangi bir zorluk çekilmiyor. Ben genel olarak mennunum. Bence fiyatı dışında bir eksisi olmayan bir ürün. Farenin ederi ise 80-85 lira...

Nie każdy lubi używać touchpada w swoim laptopie. Powodów mogą być setki, ale sposób na poradzenie sobie z niesfornym gładzikiem jest jeden: myszka. W przypadku przenośnego komputera najlepiej taka mobilna, niezbyt duża, wygodna i działająca na dowolnej...

Dette er et super stærkt produkt fra Microsoft. Musen ligger fint i hånden, er mobil, har rigtig god funktionalitet som virker out-of-the-box og så er den tilmed ikke ret dyr. Den ligger langt foran konkurrenterne fra Logitech og de andre producenter...

retour au sommaireL'Explorer Touch Mouse a le mérite d'apporter quelques améliorations à la molette tactile introduite par l'Arc Touch Mouse : elle est désormais cliquable et, plus large, gère le défilement horizontal. En outre, contrairement aux...

Explorer Touch Mouse jest kolejnym modelem, który należy do rosnącej w szybkim tempie rodziny z panelem dotykowym zamiast kołka do przewijania dokumentów i stron www. Produkt ten przypomina nam Touch Arc, jednak w odróżnieniu od niego leży płasko i...

Po nedávném otestování myši tu máme od Microsoftu další dotykový model. S Explorer Touch máme díky dotykové plošce teprve poznat sílu našich konečků prstů. Dovolí nám rolovat v celkem 4 směrech, což by tedy nemělo být vše, co nabídne. Dále se od myši...
