    Fantastic, but...

    • Written by from Canton

    I was use to my basic Logitech mouse, so when I first got the Magic Mouse that came with my iMac I hated it. It was just too heavy and felt awkward. So I stuck the thing into a drawer and there it set for almost a year. When my other mouse went toes-up, I pulled the Apple out of mothballs and started using it. Wow, what was I thinking when I stuck it in the drawer. This thing is great!

    It does take some getting use to. Be patient, it is worth it. The mouse combines the best of 2 technologies, mouse and touch pad. The added swipe and tap gestures give you so much more control at your finger tips. Safari is especially enhanced by these features.

    I would have given it 5 stars if it weren't for two things:
    -It's not a good mouse for portability. It is heavier than the typical mouse and the top surface is glass. One bad drop on a hard surface and there goes $69.
    -Battery life is awful. This mouse gets hungry a lot. I have to feed it new batteries every 4-6 weeks. Rechargeable batteries are a must.

    A good companion for the usual user

    • Written by from Minneapolis

    It took me a couple days to get the gestures consistent (mostly the two finger swipe between spaces). Since then it has served me very well. It functions with good responsiveness on my desk even without a mousepad.

    It does eat batteries like crazy. I had to use my little travel USB mouse when I ran out of batteries unexpectedly. But going without the magic mouse made me appreciate how much I relied on its functions. So I solved the battery problem by getting some rechargeable batteries from Target.

    It doesn't fit your hand perfectly but I suspect that's only an issue for heavy users (e.g., programmers, gamers). I've experienced no pain.

    really good mouse ..but !

    • Written by from New york

    It takes a while to get use to it. and than .. you just can't go back to the old mouse.

    The only thing that bothers me is the upper surface of the mouse, its not keeping his surface slippery as it is new. ( but still a better then his current competitors )

    Magic Mouse

    The Magic Mouse is simply extraordinary not only in its simplicity but its function! Just like any Apple gadget it is pricey but quality.

    Another great Apple product

    • Written by from Richmond

    Love this mouse. I love how you can do all the things with the mouse just like with the trackpad. However the way this mouse make you hold your hand does hurt after a while of using it. If it had been designed differently I probably would have given this mouse a 5 star rating.

    Watch your work!

    • Written by from Toronto

    The magic mouse for all intents and purposes is fantastic.

    The issue, and ONLY issue I have with this device is the slightest graze will knock you back a webpage when surfing the web. I recently lost a good solid hour of work thanks to that feature on the mouse.

    Great OSX mouse

    • Written by from Glen Burnie

    After using this mouse at home, I find it very difficult to go back to a Logitech BT mouse on my work computer. Then again, I get the 'why is a PC so difficult to use and so slow' feeling on every windows PC I've ever used. This mouse, was 2 steps on OSX, batteries in, power on, (wait 5 seconds or so) mouse working! On windows, just like any other bluetooth mouse, 10+ steps, a download, a bunch of balloon popups, more balloon popups, a failure or two, reboot, another download a bunch of next, next, ok, next, next, yes, ok, Agree, next, next, and struggle to work, struggle to keep Bluetooth connection. This I would not blame on Apple, but don't buy this thinking because it's an Apple mouse, that your PC will magically work better. If you have an iMac, this is the only mouse for you!

    MagicPrefs free software will allow you to customize the mouse and pad to your liking. Swipes, gestures, click area's, secret app shortcut taps if you want!

    The first generation mouse batteries lasted 6 months for me. This second magic mouse came with my 27" iMac. The batteries last 4 weeks max. I need to go to the person I sold my '08 iMac to, and secretly swap the mouse, he'll never know. Apple, if you are listening, I would gladly pay 99$ for a 6,000 MAH lithium ion equipped 1 year rechargeable battery + dock. Or even a inductive charging mouse pad, so it never needs charging!

    Very useful and good mouse

    • Written by from Markham

    I found the mouse too be absolutely a dream to use, the controls are intuitive and movement with the mouse is flawless. But the only problem I have with the mouse is that its extremely fragile, I carried it in my school bag once inside of its case. The mouse didn't fit perfectly in the case and it ended up bumping around in it. This ended up creating many tiny little micro fractures in the mouse and it now looks really ugly.

    A Beautiful Mouse

    • Written by from Sydney

    Design is just gorgeous. It's not designed to be used with your palm resting on the surface of the mouse due to its multi-touch gesture support. But you get used to it as long as you're not planning to use this as a gaming mouse. One thing I don't like is the sensitivity. Some generic mouse seems to have better tracking speed. I changed the setting but can't seem to get it right. Maybe the muti-touch gesture support can be improved but overall I'm really happy with this product.

    Magic Mouse in the House!

    • Written by from Long Beach

    I have really enjoyed using this mouse. It has worked perfectly for me. I appreciate its multi-touch gestures, since I use iOS devices on a regular basis. The only issue for me is that I am 182 cm/6' tall and weigh about 110 kg/245 lb; my fingers are a bit girthy and don't really interface well with this particular mouse; for this reason, I recently purchased a Magic Trackpad, which, so far, I find much more comfortable.

    Both the Magic Mouse and Magic Trackpad are equally priced at US$70 plus tax.

    Stylish mouse with useful features!

    • Written by from Tracy

    Most people dont like the mouse saying its uncomfortable, but i personally love it!
    The way you can scroll just brings lion more to life with my macbook from 2010(i think its 2010.. mayb 2011.) that doesnt have the newest track pads. :)

    Sexy. Useful. and entertaining.

    Almost perfect

    • Written by from Chambersburg

    I had read both positive and negative reviews of this mouse before making my decision. The positive's far exceeded the negatives so I took the plunge. Bottom line, the mouse is brilliant and it works as advertised. Movement is sharp (even for a wired or USB mouse) and crisp and there is zero noticeable Bluetooth lag you normally see from other manufacturers. The button(s) are responsive and whether on a mouse pad or desktop, the unit moves around freely.
    Now for the caveats: Because this mouse is sleek, it is difficult for me to use it for long periods of time, comfortably. If you have big hands, this may not be the mouse for you. Second, it is sensitive so if you set it up for left click/right click operation and you have big hands, you will right click when you meant to left click and vice versa...there is no avoiding it.
    Neither of these 'negatives' are the fault of the device itself and are only meant as warnings to others with large hands.
    I give it four stars simply because it is not made for everyone. However, functionality wise I would say it is 5 stars!

    Excellent Mouse, but...

    • Written by from Regina

    I mainly bought this mouse so I can use the functionality with my MBP. I find it a bit heavy, and the clicks some time isn't as responsive. I downloaded MagicPrefs to tweak a few settings to make it better. The swiping/gestures works great. Its awesome when i'm surfing the web and navigating. It will take time to get use to thats for sure. Still a good product, but I still prefer my logitech mouse with certain computer tasks.

    Magic Mouse

    • Written by from Temple City

    This mouse is beautiful. It looks so cool next to my MacBook pro. It drags on a plain wooden table and is a bit quirky. Maybe my hand is too big or not sensitive. Swiping isn't intuitive for me. For everyday use, I prefer my $20 Logitech M510. I don't think I could do a 8 hour workday on a Magic Mouse.

    Great product for some.

    • Written by from Diamond Bar

    First off, I love this mouse. I got my MM about 6 months after it was released and it has not disappointed me at all. To address the title of this review, the MM is not for everyone. I've been editing photos and videos for about 8 years now and the MM has improved my editing process quite a bit with its touch surface. Taking things up a notch, there are 3rd party apps that allow you to CUSTOMIZE the entire surface of the mouse. As for those who probably will not benefit from the MM are gamers. If you need to click both the left and right side of the mouse, don't bother with this mouse. For those who just use their computer for everyday use, it's a nice touch.

    Beautiful but tracks too slowly

    • Written by from Vancouver

    I bought this mouse in conjunction with my MacBook Air because no trackpad on a PC laptop has ever been as precise as a traditional mouse. Had I known how great the multi-touch trackpad on the MacBook is I never would have bought the mouse. It simply isn't needed.

    Even with the tracking sensitivity set to max in system prefs the mouse takes too large a hand movement to track from one side of the screen to the other. I have always had a very very sensitive mouse on Windows machines and I simply cannot adjust to this mouse.

    The built in swipe/scroll gestures are a great innovation but still limited compared to the gestures available on the MacBook trackpad.

    Apple has all but made the traditional mouse obsolete for most users with their large and easy to use trackpad.

    Magic Mouse

    • Written by from LAGUNA NIGUEL

    I replaced my wired mouse about a years ago, got tired of wire getting in the way, the Magic Mouse works great, so much more convenient and functional than my wired mouse, the only complaint I have is that I have to replace the batteries every couple of months, that's not too bad since I use my computer about 8 hours a day five days a week.

    Can't imagine using any other mouse

    • Written by from NAPA

    The magic mouse isn't perfect, but once you get used to it, other mouses (mice) are clunky, with wheels and buttons. The ergonomics are good too. Once in a while I lose the connection, but it usually pops right back.

    Using this mouse all day, everyday.

    • Written by from Bolingbrook

    I just started using this mouse about three weeks ago, I am on the computer most of the day with my job. The only thing I see that I don't like is the edge of the mouse is
    sharp. It needs to be smoother. For someone like me that works all day with my hand on the mouse it is a bit annoying. I hope this is changed on the next mouse they create. Otherwise I like the way it functions, so I am giving it 4 stars because of this.
