    Looks good but not that useful

    I love how the mouse looks. But the bluetooth connection between the mouse and mac always lost.

    Good mouse, but lacks functions, easy to scratch and eats batteries

    • Written by from Richmond

    This mouse is good and was included with my iMac. however it lacks many useful gestures that the trackpad enables and also dies very fast (at least the battery is always lower when comparing to my keyboard in how much they each decreased to). However since the mouse is used more frequently and works harder than the keyboard I think it's probably my fault… but my friend didn't complain of this problem with his. The previous owner of the mouse's girlfriend (used machine) also scratched the plastic surface with a ring. That needs some improvement too…

    *** Alert; Scrolling needs =or>10.6 to work ***

    • Written by from SEATTLE

    Either It’s not clear, or even stated under the “System Requirements”, although the mouse works in 10.5.8, the scrolling feature that does not work unless the system is 10.6 or better.
    …This straight from an Apple tech support person. Disappointing. Please pay more attention to the details on your web site Apple.
    Thanks.

    Great mouse, but it is small

    • Written by from Rochester

    I have relatevely long fingers and big hand, it is great mouse but they should make it a bit bigger in size and more high to fill your palm. it is so slim and tiny for me. I am back to work on my tacking pad. Apple, you should produce a bigger version.

    Watch out for the ergonomics

    • Written by from Lilburn

    At first I really liked this mouse, but eventually I found I needed to hold/move the mouse with a great deal of space under my hand unsupported. The tingling in my fingers told me to switch to something a bit more ergonomic.

    Think I'm going to return it

    • Written by from San Antonio

    Bought this "magic mouse" yesterday. I don't see our feel the magic. I'm 5'6" and my hands are of average size but I find this mouse still too small for my hands. I also like the option of a clicker scroll, either this doesn't have click as an option or I haven't located it yet. To compensate for the absence of the clicker I've adjusted the sensitivity to minimal as any unavoidable contact with the surface of the mouse causes the cursor to move. In support of this mouse it does have a lot of other swipe between pages and stroll functionality but I find that useless if the cursor doesn't stay where you need it. I'm going to give it another day or two but my initial evaluation is that it's not for me.

    Good but dissapointing

    • Written by from Troy

    I have used another brand of wireless mouse forever, and I miss the comfort and style and ease of use.
    I have been using the new Magic Mouse for about six weeks now, which means I have gotten use to the difference. That was big at first but once I got use to the tracking difference and everything, I don't notice the difference that much, except for one big problem.
    I may be the only one in the world that has this problem, but when I left click something and drag it to drop it in a folder, the dang thing unclicks and I drop it in the wrong folder way too often. In other words, you have to hold the left mouse button down very firmly and make a conscientious effort not to let go until you are ready, then let go. With the other brand it did not require "thinking" to click and make extra effort to hold the button down.

    3 Stars - an average of extremes

    • Written by from Larchmont

    Pros:

    1. The touch surface on top is far superior to the rollers on other mice, because it's (i) two dimensional and (ii) continuous (not subject to the "clicks" of most rollers). Side swipes are "back" and "forward" in Safari and I use them constantly.

    2. Well, #1 is it. But it's a big one…

    Cons:

    1. Right click is almost non-existent. In fact many reviewers assume there is NO right click. It's there, but (at least on my device) I must click at the very right edge in a certain spot, and even then it works only half the time.

    2. Ergonomic mess: sharp edges and low profile, as noted by many reviewers.

    3. Battery life - An ecological disaster if you don't use rechargeables

    Conclusion: Right-click fail will cause me to shop for a new mouse for gaming. A shame; I will miss the touch surface.

    Note on other reviews: mouse sensitivity is an O/S setting, my friends. Not an attribute of the mouse. If you have too much or too little "travel", change your settings!

    Cool functionality, terrible battery life

    • Written by from Tracy

    I received the Magic Mouse with my new iMac 27" and it took a little awhile to get used to. The added functions are unique to the design (swiping up and down) but it does cause problems from time to time. My page will accidentally swipe sometimes with only the slightest touch and it's frustrating to use with Adobe Bridge (if you're a Photoshop user). If you remove your hand from the mouse while in Bridge and put it back on, the thumbnails will freak as they bounce back and forth between photos numerous times. Or, it will scroll through dozens of photos by the slightest touch. It's a common problem and has been noted on Adobe forums extensively.

    But the worst thing about it is the drain on batteries. Like most Apple products, this is a real bummer. I go through batteries every three or four weeks. I use my computer about 8 to 10 hours a day. So, it's been a real toss-up between functionality and battery life issues.

    Great Mouse...for the most part.

    • Written by from TORONTO

    This mouse is comfortable, responsive and easy to use. But it eats up batteries like crazy and like everything else Apple, is over priced.

    Poor Ergonomics and Usability

    • Written by from Dallas

    I've used high DPI gaming mouses (not for games, though) before and tried this mouse. This mouse is too slow even if I make the tracking speed as fast as possible and it is far less precise and has poor ergonomics.

    I'm returning this mouse. It's a shame because the touch gesture feature is so nice..

    Pros:
    -Touch gesture
    -Pretty
    -Wireless

    Cons:
    -Poor ergonomics
    -Click requires a lot of pressure
    -Slow/imprecise tracking
    -Heavy
    -Too much friction

    Disappointed

    • Written by from ROME

    I was hesitating to write this review..yes I am an Apple cultist....but I am throughly disappointed in the Magic Mouse that is not...well...very magical. There are many who love it and I give kuddoes to those who do...however I am on my second Magic Mouse. I bought a new iMac 21.5 about a month ago and had so many problems with the mouse Apple replaced it.
    Perhaps my problem is that I am not used to it yet....I can't tell you how many times I have been on the Internet and filling out a form or writing something in a forum, etc and the page suddenly moves/disappears...I must have accidentally breathed on the mouse and I end up losing what I was doing..."sigh" is all I can say. I am going toy give it another month or so and see if it is the Mouse or me.....I love pretty much everything Apple and this is what makes me so surprised about..I don't like this Mouse..yet anyway. Rant over

    Good mouse, terrible battery life.

    • Written by from mississauga

    The battery life is about 2 weeks, and considering that I'm a graphic designer, I use the mouse quite a bit. The mouse itself is expensive, and you'll be spending even more money on batteries. You might as well get the charger with it as well. I've had this for about a year, and I have a drawer filled with empty batteries from the mouse alone. I lost track at 30 batteries sometime 6 months ago.

    Though the mouse itself is nice and I have no other issues with it other than the battery life.

    First impressions

    • Written by from Baku

    It's a little bit weird. I think it's because of meeting that kind of ergonomics for the first time. That's why my hand is not accustomed, but very functional and sexy (as all Apple products) and weight is a little bit much. For the reason of that sometimes problems appear. In general for the first impressions 3 stars. Maybe in the future it can be changed

    Plus, it's really annoying that it doesn't have a right click.

    Imprecise, otherwise great

    • Written by from Minocqua

    Must say I like the mouse, that's why it gets three stars. It's terrific for most purposes though it takes a little while to get used to. I really like being able to customize its functions.

    That all said, I work in a design job that requires precision. If something must by 8x10.75 inches, it can't be 7.998x10.741 inches, but the latter is what I get from the Magic Mouse … or something else close, but not exact.

    So, when working on design, I plug in my corded Mac Mouse and I'm back to precise design. When working on anything else, I use the Magic Mouse. Sorry, Apple, love your products, but some refinement is in order for your Magic Mouse.

    Good, but it get me crazy disconnecting by itself

    • Written by from Sanford

    The functionality of the mouse if good, easy to use and practicable.
    The down side of it, is that the battery life is poor and for some reason it disconnects a lot during use.
    For the price charged, in my opinion I wouldn't like to experience problems with it.
