alright guys, so I got my touch mouse and while I expected it to be good, it has exceeded my expectations! I have to say, this thing is fracking awesome! The touch response of the mouse is extremely responsive! It takes a little getting used to at first, especially if you've been using a traditional mouse before, but once you start using the gestures, this thing is boss!
Of note: the default sensitivity and scrolling speed settings for this suck, I suggest going into the device center to tweak the settings to your liking - similar to Trackpads, (Synaptics's default trackpad settings suck as well) the hardware is solid, but the software messes up.
Also of note, this mouse is the absence of the middle mouse button. If you use the middle mouse click alot, be prepared to miss it.
I went crazy and customized nearly every single gesture on it (Windows 7 setup) . Works great on Windows 8, but hell, i'd recommend it to Windows 7 users too.
