    Lousy Mouse

    • Written by from Ferndale

    I've been using this Magic Mouse since May 2012, didn't have any problems until recently. It constantly disconnects and reconnects this is really annoying and I don't understand why, also it eats batteries (it takes 2) like mad and the battery cover is not that easy to remove. . When I went from a PC to IMAC I had a Logitech mouse and rarely needed to change the battery (1). Does this mouse just wear out or is it a malfunction of the design. I really don't want to pay $60 for a new one after less than 1 year of use.

    For the money it could be better

    • Written by from Cheektowaga

    I've had this mouse for a few years (2009/10). This mouse, as it stands now; is very cumbersome to use; especially if you have to use it for long periods of time. Also; it does go through a ton of batteries.

    I wish Apple would just listen to the customers and make a more user friendly mouse. Magic mouse would be ideal with a few design changes.

    magic mouse could be better

    • Written by from northglenn

    the touch surface is not calibrated well. it is too sensitve and will swipe to another page when you just touch the surface without a swipe. And it eats batteries, I have rechargeable batteries and have to change them out every week. It is an awesome device when there are not touch surface errors. I watched the video, I know the functions, hopefully it is just a calibration issue, I cannot give it 5 stars. 3 stars is very accurate at best, Its great but it has its flaws

    Great mouse -- when it connects

    • Written by from Baltimore

    This is the best mouse I have ever used, when it it is working. It gives you the precision of a mouse with the flow of a touchpad. But all too often it doesn't work, because it has lost its bluetooth connection. And once you get it reconnected (which is usually a slow process) it can disconnect again a little while later. It is hard to find a pattern or a reason for this problem as it comes and goes. The poor bluetooth implementation of this mouse takes it from a 5 star product to a 2.5 star product (I gave it three stars because I am in a good mood).

    Batteries get's sucked fast, literally!

    • Written by from Sunnyvale

    The battery drainage is overwhelmingly fast. You have to keep turning the mouse button off to save battery life but after working all day, you just forget. Buy rechargeable batteries, that should fix it. One other gripe I have about this mouse is the ergonomic. It may be slick in design but the grip of it gives me arthritis pain, make sure to massage upper hand area during usage.

    Nothing magic

    • Written by from Newark

    There is nothing magic about this mouse.: It works only sometimes. You will have to revert to the touch-pad to do anything other than simple scrolling. You will do just as well with a regular wireless mouse and save yourself some money.

    Almost Art

    • Written by from Omaha

    This mouse is slick sexy excellent but falls short of expectation due to its gargantuan battery requirements. I have brought my iMac home about two months ago and the batteries needed to be replaced 3 times already. Don't get me wrong ... I LOVE apple products. From the iPads to the iPhones to the MacBook Pros to the iMac ... I can open up my own Apple store from my house. I think the solution to this problem would be to make the Apple Mouse rechargeable whether using the new 30-pin connector cable or some form of a charging docking station.

    a bit too sensitive, must have mouse pad

    • Written by from Dallas

    so you absolutely must have a soft top mouse pad...nothing slick.
    and while i love the swipe motion, there are some issues with posturing, where if you are holding it on the side too far up the page will just shake.
    also, sometimes the swipe is too sensitive and you loose information, say on a payment page, or while writing an email.

    also the battery drains so fast!

    Pretty nice for most things ... a bit cranky in Design Applications

    • Written by from Boston

    I like the mouse generally speaking, the multi-touch features are great. My one beef is that it's a bit cranky when it's used in a design application like InDesign - it's a bit over-sensitive. Like if you graze it slightly it scrolls thru pages RELENTLESSLY. So you are on Page 2 and voila just like that you are on Page 12, which means I constantly have to navigate back to the Page 2. Since the majority of my work is in InDesign, I'm this close to switching to a standard mouse... I'll be sad, but my sanity might require it.

    Overrated

    • Written by from South Chesterfield

    Nice but often makes it difficult to get work done when the batteries go out about every two weeks. Frustrating!~ It looks pretty but I am ready to throw it across the room because it keeps disconnecting every few minutes right now. Lord forbid the batteries die in the middle of a big report and then you have to figure it out manually.

    Works great, but a huge battery drain

    • Written by from Seattle

    I love the way the mouse functions, no disappointment there. The negative is that I probably use this mouse 40-50 hours a week, and the batteries need to be replaced every 3-4 weeks. My previous mouse was a Logitech wireless mouse and I needed to replace the batteries once every 9 months or so.

    If you're keen on constantly replacing batteries, this is the mouse for you.

    split decision

    • Written by from SAINT BONAVENTURE

    I have two Magic Mice. One stays with a Macbook Air; the other with a MacBook Pro.

    The mouse with the Air works flawlessly. It never disconnects from the Air, even at low battery levels.

    The mouse with the MacBook Pro? Well, to use a technical term: Its relationship with the MBP is poor. In the past half hour (at 96 percent of battery level), it has disconnected three times. It has become a routine occurrence. The MPB is running 10.8.1.

    So, is it the mouse? The MPB? The OS? I don't know. All I know is this combination doesn't work satisfactorily. Thus I am a dissatisfied Apple consumer. But of what? Mouse? Mac? The OS?

    Wish I knew. (And then Apple tells me some words cannot be used in my review. None I used was profane. Thanks, Big Brother.)

    Batteries

    • Written by from Quito

    Don't leave your uncharged batteries in. It happened to me. I tried to changed them for new ones and it wouldn't go on. On Technical Support they said that it died. And that the warranty works for only 3 months. You would expect more form an Apple product and as an industrial designer myself I feel very dissapointed.

    looks great but functions bad!

    • Written by from Whittier

    The mouse has its pros and cons,

    PROS:
    its sleek and has a very nice finish to it.

    CONS:
    its quiet expensive then again it is a touch mouse and its from apple. Also, swiping on the mouse is a bit clumsy and at time diffcult.


    I plan on getting the trackpad and seeing how that works. i hope it works better!

    not for gaming, heavy battery consumption

    • Written by from Madison

    i really like the feel of this mouse, and love the multitouch when it's implemented well in the app i'm using. but there are a few things that drive me nuts about this mouse:

    1. this mouse eats AA batteries like a hyper kid eats candy from a Halloween pumpkin. i go through a pair a month. makes me wish for a wired version.

    2. right-click is unreliable. after enabling it in system preferences, sometimes i get a right click and sometimes i don't. not a fan of the alternative (having to hold down control key).

    3. can't tweak scroll speed sensitivity. try playing a game with this mouse that uses the scroll wheel as an input and you'll see what i mean.

    i'm just about ready to dump this mouse for one with distinct buttons and a regular scroll wheel.

    Best and Worst mouse i've ever owned

    • Written by from Arlington

    Features make it the best, can't find anything that is as easy to use as the Apple Magic Mouse, on the other hand the design is terrible. Using this mouse for more than 10 minutes and my wrist, finger and hand in general start to hurt. And every time that happens i'll reach for another mouse but the other mouses don't do the gestures that the Magic Mouse does. I really hate this mouse and I really love it, I really hope that Apple makes a more ergonomic version of this mouse soon because my hand is tired of it. With everything that Apple does I don't understand how this product every reached the public, to say the truth, even if you love Apple don't buy this mouse it is not worth the pain that it brings. Just use a off brand for now and wait until Apple decides to update their mice to a more efficient design that doesn't cause pain in the hand.

    Great Mouse-Terrible Build Quality

    • Written by from TUMWATER

    I have had my iMac May 2011 version with the magic mouse since it came out. I love the mouse. Only problem is I have been scotch taping the cover on since almost four months after I bought the thing. I call Applecare one time about another issue and the tech and I were BSing for lack of a better term. I mentioned that to him about having to tape the cover on the back of the magic mouse, and he replied oh I have been doing that here for months as well. Do I need to say more. Obviously they need to pay the Chinese a tad more to actually build a cover that once the little slide gets worn in the slightest still works.
