    Awful

    • Written by from Fountain Hills

    This mouse is the worst I have used in 25 years. It is so sensitive that simply touching it enlarges or contracts the images. I do a lot of work with maps, using polygons to select the area. This mouse is a disaster as it automatically zooms in and out at will. Clearly it needs more field testing. Would not recommend under any circumstances.

    To sensitive.

    • Written by from Albertville

    I hate this mouse. I am a graphic designer and constantly have my hand on the mouse as I work. The slightest touch or graze of the mouse and my pages are flying left and right. I HATE this mouse. I am more upset because it cost me so much money. If you are not a designer and are just doing web browsing it wouldn't be so bad - for for working with it in design programs it is a nightmare.

    Imprecise

    • Written by from Lakewood

    For my work I need a mouse that puts the pointer where I want. This mouse does not do that. Its okay if you're clicking on big huge things because it will put the pointer in the general vicinity of where you want. This mouse is a source of frustration.

    Waste of Money

    • Written by from Fresno

    Don't spend the money on this mouse. I could get used to all the erratic swipes and pans but it loses the Bluetooth connection about 50 times a day. I have replaced batteries, put little squares of paper inside, turned off every Bluetooth device within a mile radius and it still does not work. I am on a band new Macbook Pro but it just drops the connection. Terrible product. I am forced to go back to an old Dell mouse. At least it works!

    Even at 100% battery life it constantly looses connection with the computer and its less than a foot away, its a constant source of irritation.

    It's not just me...

    • Written by from Danville

    A few days ago I watched a sales associate at my local Apple store struggling with the same unwanted zooms/paging/scrolling, which I have experienced with the Magic Mouse. Like many, I have turned off Screen Zoom and the two-finger swipe (and almost everything else). But after struggling with it for another month I just went back to my Mighty Mouse, which still functions perfectly with Lion.

    The touch-sensitive technology of the Magic Mouse is a tremendous step forward. It has not, however, been paired with adequate software. I find it odd that Apple includes this mouse with many computers, but requires software from a third party (not included it in the initial purchase) in order to make it function in an acceptable fashion.

    A power hog

    My logitech cordless mouse lasts 1 year on 1 AA battery. My Apple Magic Mouse lasts 1 month of 2 AA batteries. Yet another example of Apple's slow slide back to form before function

    Not recommended

    Constantly disconnects from Macbook. Makes it almost impossible to use. In fact has already disconnected twice while typing this review. Fresh batteries do not help.

    Less buttons = Less Functionality

    • Written by from Holly ridge

    If your using any programs that require more than one button then this mouse is not for you. It will require going into your mac system preferences to try and update more then just a left click. Then when that doesn't work you can try going into whatever program you are using to see if you can enable more mouse options. Then after spending 30 mins scrolling through forums or going through apple help you'll decide to either write a negative product review.

    Why buy this mouse when you can buy a cheaper mouse that works the first time around without playing around in settings. Macs are supposed to be user friendly. This mouse is not.

    Don't buy this if you just purchased a 15" retina display MacBook Pro

    • Written by from Honolulu

    basically it has trouble pairing with bluetooth, not just me, but everyone that I've talked to who just bought the 15" retina macbook is having trouble. apple should fix this issue, because it's not the cheapest mouse :(

    Apple Magic Mouse

    • Written by from Middle West Pubnico

    The old Apple bluetooth mouse was terrible. Couldn't pick it up and hold it in any way that was comfortable. Just really crapy design. I called Apple with discuss just to ask the tech people what they were thinking.
    The new bluetooth magic mouse is easier to grasp but still a waste of time to even consider. Still doesn't fit the common hand and the screen wobbles and jumps around as soon as I put my fingers anywhere near the mouse. Also I can't do Cad work with it because it has no wheel to use as a centre button to pan the drawing. Thank God I still have my Logitec. Apple needs another selection in the pricing of new Macs where you can check of that you don't want to buy an Apple mouse. Should be able to deduct at least $2.00 from the invoice.

    Don't even bother buying!

    • Written by from Demotte

    I should of listened to the majority of reviews on here and steered away from purchasing this mouse, but I didn't. The next day I took it back to Best Buy. Talk about uncomfortable, way to slim, it really hurts the wrist to use. The material they used for the thing to slide is absolutely awful! ! It doesn't want to move and if you put it on a table, it WILL scratch it! Forget about a mouse pad, doesn't work well at all.The concept is great, but that's about all that's great about this mouse. If you buy as I did, Good Luck! Allocate alittle money for the gas your going to use to take it back. I love Apple, but they really failed big on this one.

    Worst Mouse Ever!

    • Written by from Portland

    Constantly loses bluetooth connection sometimes like
    today probably 8 times.

    Soon! Taking out to trash

    Logitech is far superior

    • Written by from Gloucester

    Why? Because Logitech just works. Does not do odd things, or fail to do things I expect. For example, this mouse's Ctl+ scroll= zoom DOES NOT WORK in Safari, or on the desktop. Works on Firefox, but not on Safari. ironically, no Mouse settings give a clue as to why it does it. I could try googling forums, and defeats the purpose of getting an Apple product.

    Double tap for Mission Control? Do so if you want to hit ENTER, as you cannot predict when it shall work versus just left or right click. As for other gestures, no matter how clean, sensitive or co-ordinated one is, one cannot predict what a gesture will achieve. In the end, to sum it up, is waste of time. Not as in a waste of time getting it, but literally, a waste of time by loosing time precious time with a mouse that takes you on unpredictable journeys. Reminds me of Vista and Microsoft products.

    Save your money!!!

    • Written by from West Nyack

    Probably the worst creation apple has ever made. Between the random zoom in and outs, page swipes, and connection losses, this is just horrendous. Not to mention the amount of batteries needed. I have to change the batteries at least once a week. I thought a wireless mouse would be the way to go, so I could save a USB port, but I couldn't wait to throw this out the window. After many frustrating hours of usage, I decided to get a standard mouse that WORKS. Sorry Apple, hit the design floor again and figure this out. The only reason I gave it 1 star is because I couldn't give it 0.

    Took it back instantly

    • Written by from Markham

    This mouse is not built for people that use the mouse for most of their work. I use my mouse for 8 hours per day as a developer and after two days my wrist felt numb and starting to sieze up. I had to shake my wrists out almost every 10 minutes.

    I would expect a company like apple to work a crucial thing like "ergonomics" in to their designs, but seems like they completely ignored that.

    I'm not sure who actually would like this mouse but I took it back in favour of the logitech Performance MX

    Very Disappointing

    • Written by from Pinehurst

    I do a lot of desk top publishing and decided to upgrade to this mouse. It scrolls nicely, it zooms in and out nicely, but when it comes to clicking, or highlighting or wanting to insert text into an existing sentence it fails miserably. It freezes. I have to click elsewhere and then return to try again. It hesitates. It will not allow me to insert text into an existing file name. I have resurrected my old microsoft Intelimouse, plugged it in and it is working the way a mouse should work. I'm returning this magic mouse to the store!

    Mouse Causes Pain in Hand

    • Written by from PROVINCETOWN

    Puzzled that this mouse has been around for several years, and in spite of many complaints, it hasn't been redesigned.

    Having the latest technical features in your mouse can't trump having to o to a doctor because of pain in your hand. I also developed a callus on the part of they hand where the wrist meets the rest of the hand.

    I'm returning to Apple it pronto!
