    Hate it. Worst mouse for my MacBook

    • Written by from Buffalo Grove

    I got this as a gift...and I hate it. The mouse is NOT an ergonomic fit to my hand. You have to move the mouse farther to move the pointer up and down (not customizable in my MacBook), the sound it makes as you move the mouse grates on me, I have to move my hand off the mouse to move forward and back on web pages and trying to scroll up and down a page with one finger is difficult as the mouse slides on a semi-smooth surface. Giving this to my daughter who is in love with this monstrosity and going back to my Microsoft Wireless Mobile two button mouse.

    Whomever designed this should be fired. NO STARS if that was a choice!

    Big Disappointment

    • Written by from Havertown

    Half the time the mouse pointer doesn't move or starts something I did not mean to do. I am back with the Apple mouse. It is painful to say but I was stupid to buy this garbage.

    WORST MOUSE EVER - 0 stars

    • Written by from Austin

    This product should have never been sold, much less packaged with an Apple computer. The main "finger scrolling" feature is a complete nightmare, since it seems to always causes the mouse cursor to fly off in action with ANY inadvertent move (which seems to be any time you touch the mouse). Totally unusable with most drawing programs (the action of the mouse causes the continual enlarge/shrink function to activate). A total nightmare to use with Windows too - jerks all over the place.

    All you can do is turn off the scrolling - then you don't have a basic scroll wheel. Form over function - Shame on you Apple for this piece of junk.

    (and I have used these with 2 mac pros and a macbook pro laptop. I replaced it with a $10 corded mouse to gain function). Garbage

    Not ergonomic hurts my wrists after 10 minutes of use

    • Written by from La Grange Park

    This mouse is not ergonomic at all. It is too flat. Apple is trying to make everything sleek and flat looking right now, like the new Mac Books, iPad and that is fine but it just doesn't work for a mouse. Companies have been spending 20 years on research trying to make mice ergonomic so that your wrist doesn't hurt after using it for too long and Apple just throws that all out and does what it wants well it doesn't work this time Apple! My wrist hurts after 10 minutes of using this backwards piece of junk.

    no i say no

    • Written by from henderson

    My opinion of this mouse is that it is not useful when getting a brand new computer and is difficult to find the buttons and has a poor tracking system. It has very poor ability when it comes to playing games. I say it needs improvement to say the least. please improve it.

    The Magic Mouse is not fit for purpose

    • Written by from Holyhead

    This mouse is not fit for purpose. When using it, the cursor jumps all over the screen; random distances and directions, approximately 10 times a minute (sometimes more, sometimes less). This is extremely frustrating. It is too small and flat to hold comfortably for any length of time and I end up with a sharp pain in my hand, where the tendons for my fingers are. When clicking, because the whole top-forward surface of the mouse depresses, it catches and scrapes the skin on my thumb and finger holding the mouse on either side. I wonder if I can get my money back for it since it came as part of my Mac package.

    The lack of middle button is really annoying me!

    • Written by from New York

    For some reason, the middle mouse button doesn't work in the MAYA. As lots of people know, middle mouse button is huge important in the Maya program. This is the first time I disappointed about Apple!

    PAIN Pain Pain

    • Written by from Southborough

    Nice product design, unless you want to actually use it for any length of time. Not long before you get wrist and hand pain. Button is too hard to push (index finger pain as well).

    Also not full functionality compared to the external track pad.

    Apple should provide the option to swap these for something that doesn't hurt to use.

    Idea, cool. Ergonomics, fail.

    • Written by from Pittsfield

    I just got Apple's Magic Mouse on Thursday night. I'm a woman with smallish hands, and the first thing I noticed was the awkward feel of the edges of the mouse under my palm. They're not rounded well, and they're not user-friendly to try and get a grip on. The first thing a mouse has to have is good ergonomics, well, after basic click and move functionality. The design on this is very pretty, but it's too low and long to fit my hand comfortably. The scrolling ability that is built into the surface is revolutionary for a mouse, but painful to try to execute on a small curved surface. After just a half hour of use, I felt my wrist aching and numbness in my fingers. It's a gorgeous piece of plastic, but ergonomics sometimes aren't pretty. Back to Apple it goes, 10% restocking fee and all. Sorry, Steve! (I ended up with a Logitech mouse from Best Buy who had a ton of cordless mice to try out in their display aisle. And it was about thirty bucks cheaper.)

    I have it but I will continue to use my Microsoft mouse - I can r1ght click with that one. I have heard that Jobs doesn't like the right click and that's why it isn't present. I got news for you Stevie Boy - a lot of users do.
    The next time I run across the Woz, I'll ask him his preference.

    Connection Lost...

    • Written by from Washington

    I get the "connection lost" message about once every day, even with new batteries. I'm going back to the cord. Is it me, or has it been about 5 years since Apple made a good mouse?

    Poor and too small!

    • Written by from Flagstaff

    I was excited when we bought the new Imac and the wireless mouse. The problem is it does not track well, the right click is pretty much non existent and the mouse is way too small. I used the mouse for less than a week and started having wrist pain. I ended up plugging in my old Dell mouse and wrist pain has gone away. Good looking product, but does not function as well as one would believe!

    Try before you buy!

    • Written by from Boulder

    If you live near and Apple store it might be worth your while to give it a test drive. I was seriously considering this mouse so I went to my local Apple dealer and spent 30 minutes with the mouse. That was enough to convince me I didn't want it. I may be beautiful to look at, but ergonomically it is not comfortable to use. In particular I couldn't get used to the sharp edges. I have an Iogear bluetooth mouse that works just as well and is much more comfortable.

    My guess is that Apple will eventually come out with a redesign. I'll wait till they do.

    too heavy

    • Written by from PARIS

    was happy at the begining although acceleration seems a bit awkward.
    too heavy in the long term (because of the batteries), strains your hand and arm... back to the old wired mouse, this one rules.
    looking at the new trackpad...
    wireless is good but batteries are annoying, when you are out of batteries you're .... hum hum.

    Sharp Edges & Other Issues Caused Me to Pass

    • Written by from Fishers

    The Magic Mouse is great in theory but poor in execution. Apple chose form over function and clearly missed the boat on this product. Physically, the mouse is too low to be comfortable, is too small for my average sized hands and far too sharp on the edges to be comfortable. The execution of gestures I found to be very difficult in a device that want's to move. It's ironically too loose on a desk to use gestures and too sticky to use as a smooth mouse! To solve my gesture needs, I ended up with the infinitely superior Magic Trackpad. If you're deciding between the two, I highly recommend going up to your local Apple store to try them both out first. If you're not in a position to do that, let the reviews tell the story. If you read the Magic Trackpad reviews, you'll see numerous stories of people trading in their Magic Mouse for the Magic Trackpad.

    This mouse has serious issues!

    • Written by from Red Bluff

    Battery life terrible!
    Horrible right click issues! Thinks right click is left click 50% of time!
    Using with Google Maps extremely frustrating!
    This mouse has multiple problems that Apple needs to address...
    I received this mouse with my new IMac 27". After 7 months of use, I became so frustrated that I smashed it on the floor and went back to my Microsoft Intellipoint which works very well! IMac computer is Great, but this mouse is simply not acceptible. Simply put...Avoid this mouse!
