    Slow

    • Written by from VISTA

    Natively slow, even at its fastest setting. It needed a third party app to boost its speed.

    not so magic mouse

    • Written by from Columbus

    I HAVE A MAGIC MOUSE AND KEYBOARD THAT APPEARS TO NEED A MAGICIAN TO MAKE IT WORK. KEYBOARD WORKS MORE THAN THE MOUSE. MOUSE WORKS VERY LITTLE. I HAD TO GO BACK TO MY WIRED KEYBOARD AND MOUSE ON MY NEW iMAC WITH GREAT 27" SCREEN.

    Poor Tracking - CAD Operators Beware

    • Written by from Ocala

    I love the look and feel of the Apple Magic Mouse, and the multi-touch gestures are great. But I ended up purchasing an Apple Trackpad and Logitech mouse as I found the Magic Mouse unusable. I am a CAD operator and this mouse just isn't suitable for this work. I also find it awkward for regular MAC use. I'm not sure exactly what it is, but the tracking just isn't right. It is probably a combination of acceleration and the ratios of vertical and horizontal tracking speeds that is all wrong. I found when I had the horizontal tracking just right, the vertical would be too slow. Anyone working in CAD and switching from WINPC/Logitech will most likely have trouble adapting. I tried an App called Better Touch but that still didn't fix the problem. What Apple really needs to add is a system preference to change tracking speed of Vertical and Horizontal separately. This would be a big help as this is where I think the main problem is.

    Constantly disconnects, poor ergonomics

    • Written by from Cambridge

    Without a doubt, this is a beautiful looking mouse, and the multi-touch ability is really nice. However, it's all form and poor function. The mouse consistently disconnects, a problem I don't have with other mice, and it's the most uncomfortable mouse I've ever used. It's low profile makes it uncomfortable to use for extended periods. Most importantly, though, it's the least reliable bluetooth mouse I've ever used, disconnecting constantly (once every five minutes or so).

    Maybe I got a bad one. I certainly think I may have, given the glowing reviews from others. However, I feel I should judge this based on my own experience, just to balance things out over all the reviews.

    Terrible Product

    • Written by from Kalamazoo

    The mouse does not open links correctly. Once you click it gives you dialogue box similar to a right click that you cant click off of. The scrolling touch mouse does not work either. WORST APPLE PRODUCT EVER.

    Extremely disappointed

    • Written by from Pulaski

    This is the worst mouse yet. I love everything about Apple products except the mouse. I have been using a PC mouse for the last 4 years I have had my Mac...the Mac mouse sits in a box. I thought they had finally gotten it right, but I was wrong! This "mouse" is slow and unresponsive as they have always been!

    Terrible

    • Written by from Bloomington

    I generally really enjoy apple products but the magic mouse is awful. I've had so many problems with it - everything from having to replace the batteries twice a week (seriously) to constant disconnecting and reconnecting so much that it's unusable. I've even called apple and the best answer they can give me is to buy new batteries. Do not buy this product.

    It is sad that a logitech smokes any mouse made by apple

    • Written by from Midland

    I have not used an apple's mouse for a long time. #1 Lack of controls. #2 The most uncomfortable shape for the human hand and idiotic design. This product is serious waste of plastic. Apple, why is it so hard for you guys to come up with a user friendly and comfortable mouse?

    Disappointing

    • Written by from Tulln

    Loses connection, jumpy, and sometimes the battery cover just opens for no reason. I usually like Apple products for all the obvious reasons, but this one has been a waste of money, unfortunately.

    Wow, really bad!

    • Written by from Aurora

    The mouse loses it's connection constantly and sometimes it seems to just freeze up and you can't get it to move and you have to switch it off then on. If you are in the middle of a game or other program you just lose everything. Nice idea but very flawed!

    Ugh

    • Written by from Huntington

    This mouse loses its connection to the computer in the middle of any task. It happens every day, usually several times, and requires a reboot to reestablish the connection. It often loses the connection after a period of "sleep" and again, requires a reboot. MOST ANNOYING !! Don't throw your wired mouse away!!!

    Jumpy, makes you work twice as hard... Why release something so imperfect?

    • Written by from LOS ANGELES

    The title pretty much sums up my review of this product. Apple can do amazing things, but sometimes in their pursuit of being "the firstest with the bestest" they release technologies where they haven't worked out the bugs for all of their users. I do not have an extraordinary work environment, yet the mouse does not let me select and click on any of my desired items with any ease like a hardwired mouse does, no matter the battery power, distance from the computer, etc... And I really SHOULDN'T have to do this dance. The thing should work out of the box, as it is. I shouldn't have to call apple support, as I have several times, to get it to work. So I have spent $50? (I don't really remember now) and will have now spend an additional sum this morning to buy a hard wired apple mouse that works. Here's an idea for you Apple. Why don't you actually do testing in Cupertino instead of releasing products and having your customers do the testing for you. It's not really the way to operate a business and it is starting to get to be really, really annoying. And this ain't the first time. Maybe "Think Different" might mean "Do It Right The First Time". Think about it...

    Keeps losing connection with the computer

    • Written by from Hollywood

    This mouse is terrible. I have had to restart my computer several times because the mouse, all of the sudden, stops working and lose the connection. I have lost all my work several times because you can be stuck with no way to get it around your mac if you only owns this mouse. If you decide to buy it, make sure you have a wire mouse as a back up

    Terrible product

    • Written by from MIAMI

    This is the worst Apple mouse I have owned. The previous ones were bad but this beat them all. Had to move my Mini less than 2' from the mouse and it is still erratic and behaves as with a mind of it's own when moving the mouse cursor. Movement feels "rubbery" at times and is very inaccurate. Save your money and get another brand and with a USB cable because this one goes through rechargeable batteries pretty fast.

    FRAGILE

    • Written by from Yorba Linda

    This mouse is great while it works. It breaks very easily simply by putting it into your computer bag (In my case a rolling Tumi bag). This is the second one and final one in the last 6 months. They just stop working - and no it is not battery related. I am an IT professional and no rookie to technology. This thing is WAY to FRAGILE!

    Worst mouse ever.

    • Written by from Kirkland

    This mouse is pretty - and that's about the only thing going for it. If the mouse isn't literally right next to my MacBook Air the Bluetooth connection is so unresponsive and laggy that it's essentially useless.
