    Don't buy a Magic Mouse!

    • Written by from Berkeley

    I have no idea why it is that Apple can be such a pioneer in technology, and yet they can't make a decent mouse. From the moment I bought it, it was jumpy and difficult to use, and the touch surface stopped working after about 2 months. Next time, I'm definitely going to get the wireless trackpad.

    Looks nice but don't use it at work

    • Written by from Hornsby

    Sadly, this mouse is triumph of form over function. Looks great, but is such a piece of junk, at least in an office environment where other Bluetooth devices may be operating nearby.

    I had to replace the batteries every 4-5 weeks, even when I switched it off before going home at night.

    Even on nearly new batteries, several times a day it would lose the Bluetooth connection to the iMac just a foot away. (The stock iMac keyboard is nearly as bad as the mouse in this respect.)

    If Apple made a wired version I would consider it, but wireless is a waste of money.

    wireless intereference

    • Written by from EL CERRITO

    We have an airport extreme base station, and I found that when using this bluetooth wireless mouse, the WIFI kept losing the signal. Like every couple of minutes. Even though I had it set to automatically join known networks, it kept just dropping the signal, then I had to go select our home network and tell it to join manually, truly a pain. It turns out that even Apple's support site mentions the possibility of signal interference between these products. Duh.
    I went back to using a wired mouse, which solved the WIFI signal issue, but for some odd reason, Apple's wired mouse only comes with a 29 inch cord, which is barely long enough to go around the back and into the USB ports, which are on the left of the MacBook.

    One of the worst mouse ever

    • Written by from Pescara

    It's expensive and poor quality.
    This is not an Apple product ... it's just stylish, glamourous ... but low quality!
    Any cheap Logitech mouse is better than this mouse.
    It often loose the bluetooth connection, multi touch gesture is not ergonomic.
    Must cost 15USD ... no more.
    Shame of you

    Horrible Reliability

    • Written by from San Francisco

    When it works, it is magic. But mine rarely works. And this is the second one I've had. It just isn't reliable. It loses its connection constantly. And it will just turn itself off in the middle of an action.

    I Hate This Thing

    • Written by from Honolulu

    I have to use one of these for work and I have come to hate it with an unreasonable passion. It is hard to use for 8 hours, and by the end of the day my wrist and hand ache. It's basically a cool looking torture device.

    Don't by the Magic Mouse

    • Written by from Plano

    Save the money and buy a good USB mouse. Just look on the forums and you will see this is a poorly designed mouse with many flaws. A mouse is one of those basic devices that must have complete durability and reliability. This mouse has none of them.

    I'm surprise the Apple keeps peddling this "mouse trap."

    Terrible battery life and erratic, unpredictable mouse movements.

    • Written by from Coatesville

    Battery life is about 2 weeks normal usage on mine. The page keeps moving side to side without warning, most of the time losing the page altogether. Very frustrating, it does this if I just nudge the mouse by mistake, sometimes without touching it at all! And if I am on the internet this is a unacceptable, sometimes losing my page and a site altogether!!!. My friends have the same problem. I do not remember this being this bad on my old Mighty Mouse which just quit after 2 years. Maybe this is worsened by Lion? I had hoped the battery thing would be fixed, but it hasn't. This is not a mouse you want to buy nor is the wireless keyboard I threw away. Blue Tooth has problems at Apple! Is this static electricity?

    Do NOT buy if:

    • Written by from Beirut

    1. You have SWEATY palms (hours of work will make ur hands slightly sweaty that u will hate to use the scroll feature!)

    2. Very sensitive, like ur skating bare foot on ice! (moves u to another page with the slightest accidental touch)

    3. Its bottom skates ONLY move on smooth SOLID surfaces. (i sometimes use my mouse on the couch..or anywhere i am sitting)

    4. Heavy!

    5. Painful for MS Office users.

    Annoying

    • Written by

    There are times I really like it, it scrolls easily throughout most Word documents. If you remember to turn it off each night, the batteries will probably last longer for you--I always forget. It is just AWFUL in Excel (I am using Office 2011) as well as in two of our in-house database programs. The slightest touch, the lightest breath, and it flies through these software packages and I have to scroll back to where I was only to have it jump forward again immediately. It won't sit long inside a cell--it just doesn't like Excel. I have set it to slow down as much as I can, and this hasn't helped. It's like driving on black ice. Given my enthusiasm when I took it out of the box, I now have to say I hate it.

    Magic Mouse

    Have used apple products for many years-this has to be one of the worst they have come up with. Ended up turning off all the options, and buying lots of batteries!!!

    WORST apple gadget

    • Written by from Belgrade

    I'm very loyal Apple user for many years. They never stopped to amaze me with ingenious new products. I hoped that it would be the case with Magic mouse... Boy how wrong was I!!!
    If You ever need middle button on mouse, you would never want this THING near!!!
    So imprecise, so unergonomic, so TRAGIC... !!!!!

    Terrible!

    • Written by from Farmington

    If you feel like going through a pack of batteries literally every week then go for it! Oh but there's the option to buy an alkaline battery charger for an extra $30 to make it a $100 mouse. Are you kidding me? What a joke. Put a rechargeable lithium battery in it! Come on, this is the 21st century! Must have some deal cut with the battery companies. The corded mouse is just as bad. The down scroll broke a week in. 2011, the year Steve Jobs and Apple died.

    Mine died very young :-(

    • Written by from Napanee

    This mouse was wonderful while it worked. It came with the iMac 27" when I converted to that from my PC, in August 2011, but by mid September it was *very* frequently losing connection with the iMac. I changed batteries several times to see if that might solve the problem, to no avail. Finally I plugged in an old USB MS IntelliMouse and have been working fine ever since.

    Uncomfortable!

    • Written by from Jacksonville

    By far, the most uncomfortable mouse I have ever used! I like the concept, but would love it if it followed the same form and structure of Apple's regular mouse. The old style, with it's curved design, just fits better.

    frustrating, don't buy!

    • Written by from Brampton

    I really dislike this mouse. It has very finicky touch detection. There are two major things that I've noticed: It constantly does not detect when I want to right click. More frustratingly, the touch interface which allows you to scroll constantly thinks I am trying to go to the previous page (when using the web), which has resulted in me loosing text I have entered in web pages.

    I do not recommend.

    TERRIBLE

    • Written by from Ludlow

    Awesome concept, great first couple months. Started losing connection a lot even after batteries were replaced. Fell off my desk and broke like a crystal figurine. Now I'd farther use a $10 Logitech wireless mouse that takes less batteries and never loose connection then pay $70 to replace the Mighty Mouse.

    Goes out to Quickly

    • Written by from Somerville

    I dislike this product because it just stops working and never works again. I have had two mice now and now my second one has stopped working. I haven't spilled anything on it I keep it along with all of my other apple products on my desk and now I am going to have to buy ANOTHER mouse. So to anyone looking to buy this mouse I strongly recommend you do not.
