    All but the side expose button on the mighty mouse is missing, this is by far the best web searching mouse ever. now apple needs to keep moving toward more interaction like this.

    Too flat

    • Written by from River Vale

    Unlike others, I have no real probelms with tracking, accuracy, reliability, stiff or heavy feel on various surfaces, etc. It works pretty well. Yes, I'll admit the battery life could be better, but I use rechargeables and I expect them to discharge more quickly. However, I don't care because they're rechargeable. I also love the other Apple-specific features of this mouse such as the two-fingered swipes, etc.

    The only issue I have with this mouse is that its profile is too flat. By this I mean that it sits quite low on the desk/table. When I place my hand over it to slide it or click, my hand is nearly flat. This makes the process of clicking seem a little awkward, it makes it a little harder to control feels ergonomically incorrect. If you are accustomed to cupping your hand over a mouse that has a little more height, this one will feel strange and a little bit uncomfortable.

    So, overall, I like the mouse. I do not plan to replace it. I just wish it had a higher hump in the middle.

    Mouse makes my fingers hurt

    • Written by from New Ulm

    I loved the look and feel of this mouse and it's new design. However, I use my computer so much that after a few hours, my fingers start to fall asleep. It seems to be the fingers that rest along the right side of the mouse. I was disappointed when this starting happening, both because I loved the mouse and wanted it to work, but also because it is so expensive and would have hoped for more. I need to find a differnt mouse, I am just not sure what I should get for my iMac 27. Just hope the next one works out better for me.

    Awesome mouse but...

    • Written by from Bishkek

    I was disappointed that it has no 3rd button, so I tried to use third party app that adds more function to mouse but that was terribly buggy. But I'm happy that I own it, this is Apple's best mouse ever produced. Apple should add more gestures and third button, because for instance 3D designers and artsits use third button.

    Excellent Mouse

    • Written by from Kaysville

    This mouse is great. It is comfortable to use, the scrolling is amazing. I love it. But the battery life is a joke. Im lucky to get a month on 2 batteries! Other mice I've had have gone 6 times that, and they only use 1 battery. The multitouch is great, but the battery life is horrendous. And the price is a little high for a mouse.

    Wonderful product!

    • Written by from Aurora

    I love the sleek and thin design. It saves me a USB port, as I like to daisy chain my older one button USB mouse into one of the ports on the side - and real estate is important for my older model Mac Mini. Why they price it at the same price as the smaller keyboard is odd, but not a bad thing.

    Overall pretty good

    • Written by

    I got the magic mouse a couple months ago and thought it was fantastic. It's still smooth and works great. I only have a few problems which is at the bottom it tracks dirt and dust. And my main problem is that it does not have the buttons on the side so you can look at all your applications on the screen. I had to do a little app at the bottom that i click but i just wish you could do something to Expose. Overall it's pretty good.

    Apple Magic Mouse

    • Written by from Bentonville

    I really wanted this mouse for a while, and I tried it out at the local BestBuy, and was sold. It took me a while to configure it to scroll speed preferences, etc (about 5 mins), and since then I've really enjoyed the mouse and the multitouch functionality. Similarly, I really enjoy the optional secondary click function, having to go between the MacBook and school PCs, I have come to deeply miss a *dedicated* secondary click.
    One complaint, and thats why 4/5 stars- impossible to game with, from Minecraft, to Starcraft, I couldn't manage to use it with the same efficacy as a $10 USB one from Walmart.
    Overall, adds marvelously to the experience.

    truly magic

    • Written by from Moose Lake

    Magic mouse is by far the best mouse I have ever used, and I have tried many in the past. The functions on this mouse never cease to amaze me. However the one drawback with this mouse is it eats batteries like they were cheese.I realize that with all the functions it needs more power, but if you buy one of these , use rechargeble batteries and keep charged spares handy.

    magic mouse is for me

    • Written by from Woodhaven

    I recently tried the magic mouse and the magic track pad. I liked the magic track pad but it did not "fit" me as the magic mouse did. I used the pro mouse for years and the magic mouse is similar to that pro mouse without the annoying dust and debris caught inside the tiny trackball.
    I gave the rating a 4 only because of the sharp lines along the body which should be rounded and smooth. Other than that I'm lovin it. I really like the scroll with inertia.

    Awesome, but...

    • Written by from Phoenix

    I have a MightyMouse too, and never use it anymore. Apple finally almost got it right.
    I say almost, because to make this mouse really work, you need to download MagicPrefs.
    This third party driver makes the mouse work like it should.
    Without it, you can't even middle-click. This software gives you full control over all aspects of the mouse.
    The mouse did take a little getting used to, like the new Apple track pads, but it's well worth it once you do.
    Another major flaw is not new to Apple mice. The battery cover falls of very easily.
    Apple has problems making battery covers latch properly on their mice, but even with this problem, I wouldn't use any other mouse.
    The other nice thing that just came out is a USB charging pad that the mouse just sets on and charges wirelessly.
    I plan on getting this too. It's from Mobee, and maybe it will help with the cover falling off. I will soon see....
    Even though it's the best mouse I have ever used, because of the above issues, I cannot give it 5 stars. Apple is capable of correcting these things, and only time will tell.

    Pretty good

    • Written by from Canton

    This mouse is really comfortable and fun to use, but it's unreliable. It loses it's connection with my Macbook Pro quite often, which gets annoying. It's also terrible for gaming, if that's what you're looking for. But the technology and coolness behind it are what make it worth owning.

    Magic for sure

    • Written by from Flushing

    I really like the mouse, the finger movement is really sweat. It takes a little tweaking on the settings to get it adjusted to your liking, but once it's set your good to go. The only thing I think would make it better is if was a little bigger for the palm.

    Don't Base Your Opinion On The Apple Store Demos!!!!!

    • Written by from Houston

    I used this mouse when going into the Apple store and really disliked it. It was slow, wouldn't respond to the touch-face, and frustrated the heck out of me, but, I heard good things from some people at work, so I bought it to try it out.

    It works perfectly at home. I love being able to scroll anywhere on the mouse, and the swiping works perfectly when you are using the mouse how you like, not standing at a bar at the Apple store.

    Give it a try, but be warned that you probably will have to adjust some settings to get this mouse to work like you prefer ... it's not perfect out of the box ...!

    Great mouse but could use some improvements

    • Written by from West Haven

    I love the scrolling and zooming functions, however I think the design can be more ergonomic to fit ones hand more comfortably. Also adding 2 buttons on either side to add more functionality would be a welcome addition. I would give it 5 stars if these features were added.

    I love it...

    • Written by from Edmonton

    But it's battery life is abysmal. I installed two brand new Energizer rechargeables on the 6th of January and they lasted exactly 23 days. So keep two sets of rechargeable batteries on hand so you have a replacement set when they run out of juice.

    It's also very sensitive and takes a bit of getting used to. But overall, I love this little mouse!

    Not a Perfect 10

    • Written by from EASTON

    I bought the Magic Mouse to replace a Logitech laser mouse I was using. The Logitech used a USB dongle for connectivity. I wanted to free up a USB port on my iMac and the Magic Mouse did that for me with its bluetooth connectivity. The Magic Mouse looked very fetching to me and I was able to try it briefly before I purchased it. When I began to use it on my desk surface, the tracking was not even close to how fast I liked it, even when I had it maxed in the settings. I figured out how to increase it even more from a few articles I found until I was happy. All the differnt ways to configure the controls of the mouse (using Magic Prefs) are out standing. You can click, drag, swipe, pinch and tap every function possible with this mouse. Some gestures are almost impossible to duplicate, but there are plenty of combinations that work great. The only problem I have is that it doesn't read on the desk surface as well as the Logitech did. So the tracking isn't nearly as smooth and it can be annoying when trying to point with accuracy on the screen. I might have to try a mouse pad and see if I get better results. I have a widget on my dashboard that shows the battery level on the mouse and it doesn't seem very bad so far. Overall it looks cool and has cool features, but the functionality could be fine tuned.

    Excellent Mouse -- once you tame it

    • Written by from Shoreline

    I bought my MM together with my MBP 15" in April 2010. Frankly, I barely used the thing until my company's annual Christmas shutdown when I made a concerted effort to get to know my MM.

    With standard OS X utilities, the MM is frankly unusable. It tracks so slowly that you need a basketball court to move the cursor from one side of the screen to the other.

    But... if you install MouseZoom, the MM suddenly comes to life. I have the'Zoom' set to 6.36 (maximum setting with the default Mouse Preference Applet is 1.7). Once I did that, I really like the MM. Scrolling is smooth and effortless, and in spite of reviews to the contrary, I find the MM very comfortable over extended periods of usage.

    I have now retired my Logitech USB mouse in favor of the MM.

    Can Apple please make a mouse that combines the track pad features as well?

    • Written by from Keller

    The Magic mouse is cool, but I find myself doing 3 and 4 finger swipes like I do on my trackpad on my MacBook Pro. I think the ideal mouse would be able to 'tap' the surface instead of actually pressing down to click. Like the track pad where you can 'tap' to click. And being able to 3 and 4 finger swipe would be an awesome bonus in place of not having extra buttons! Sort of like the Magic Trackpad, but with a 'mouse eye' on the bottom so you could move it around!! I am on the computer for 8+ hours a day and 'tapping' to click would certainly be nice on the over used index finger muscles!
