    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.

    Crazy Zoom??

    • Written by from Medina

    The swipe is great. The multi button is great. The scroll zoom is HORRIBLE!

    I use Cinema 4D and other 3D modeling as well as a lot of Adobe products. This mouse loves to zoom to infinite levels in a project if you so much as look at it wrong.

    If that "flick scroll, infinite zoom" thing can be fixed, it would be an easy 5 stars.......but because it is SO annoying, only 3 stars ( and that is generous!)

    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!

    Excellent

    • Written by from Kolkata

    Apple Magic Mouse is very nice mouse. I bought for my 15" MBP. I used several wireless mice, including Microsoft Arc Mouse and the gaming mouse.

    Apple Magic Mouse is a piece of art and will stay with time. From the battery compartment to the chassis all matches with 15" MBP and crafted with care. I use the mouse for ~15 hours per day. Duracell gives me 15 days lifetime service. I can not say its very low battery life.

    Weight is heavier primarily due to Duracell batteries. The casing and packaging is excellent.

    I expect from Apple to design the battery themselves packaged within the mouse and rechargeable via Mac instead of usual method of using AA batteries.

    Good mouse, too sensitive, batteries fall out too easily

    • Written by from Durham

    As a mouse it works fine. I like the gestures. I find it's too sensitive and I have a lot of accidental "swipes", especially in Illustrator and Excel. I also find that the batteries dislodge too easily inside, so if I pick up the mouse and set it down (like when moving from one extreme of the desktop to another or t my second monitor), they lose connection. This causes the mouse to power off and power on again. I get a lot of disconnections. It was free with the iMac, but I would be upset if I paid $70 for it.

    It fits my expectation of a mouse

    • Written by from Portland

    When I purchased my iMac, I opted to get the trackpad instead of the mouse based on the reviews I read here. I am a first time Mac user.

    Maybe I am not the power user I once was, or I just don’t realize what I am missing with 3rd party software – since I didn’t download any for this mouse to work. Maybe I just use the Track Pad for those gestures people seem to miss?

    Tracking is really precise; however, I have found out why some people may have trouble – the laser eye is at the forward end of the mouse. If you try to make precision movements by manipulating the bottom portion of the mouse but the top portion is not moving much – then it feels as if your mouse is not tracking. Easy solution is to make sure you are manipulating the mouse, don’t just pivot the bottom.

    I don’t know what mouse pad that other person was using, no snags with my mouse.

    I grab my mouse and place both fingers on it, like a traditional mouse. I don’t have the problem as some do with inadvertent scrolling. In fact, I can keep my middle finger on the mouse, and still use my index finger to scroll.

    There is no one size fits all, sorry – but this mouse is not uncomfortable for me.

    Its a mouse, it works like a mouse, only better

    It's interesting when there is a learning curve on products that you have used for years, people seem to hate change. The mouse has 30 plus years, changing very little from a two or three button design, I feel the latest addition was in the 90's with the addition of the scroll wheel. Queue 2009 - the apple magic mouse with multi touch.

    Great idea, poor execution

    • Written by from TACOMA

    Thank god I got this thing for free--I'll be dipped in dung before I ever pay $69 for it. What can I say? I'm a huge Mac lover, in my eyes they can usually do no wrong, but they missed the mark with this guy. Beautiful to look at, but its technology is flawed. I got this one second-hand after my Mighty finally died. First off, whose idea was it to put the mouse on skis? The little black plastic strips on the bottom are moronic. Using it on a mousepad doesn't work; it gets stuck on the fibers, and I tried it on a brand new one. The mouse makes an irritating scraping, sliding noise when used directly on my desk, which is IKEA white veneer and completely flat and smooth. I've tried it on every type of surface imaginable and it's the same old story: the tracking is whack. I try adjusting its settings but it's stubborn as a mule. The pointer floats around and basically just does whatever it wants, which is usually nothing. I find myself having to pick the mouse up and put it back down to get it to where I want. That's fun. The indistinguishable buttons are lovely--to look at. But I always find myself clicking more towards the middle of the two, which gives me both a menu and selection. Annoying! The swype scrolling is also a nice idea but I find it exhausting to use because it scrolls too fast and jumpy. And on websites such as Google Maps, where scrolling controls the zoom-in/out feature, it's a nightmare. The slightest touch and suddenly you're looking at the map from outer space, WTH...Apple, I love you guys but just stop. You can do better!

    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.

    An Okay Mouse

    • Written by from Farmington hills

    This mouse is functional, as in everything works just fine. It's just that the size of the mouse makes absolutely no sense. The iPhone 5 was created with the design of the human hand in mind, and as a result, it's very comfortable to hold. Sure, the Magic Mouse is very small and sleek and looks cool, but it's uncomfortable to use for a long period of time.

    Best. Mouse. Ever.

    • Written by from Warrenville

    Perfect design, perfect function, great as Bluetooth. I was worried about the swipe functions but now absolutely love them/use them all day at work. This is the best mouse, and if you use the Bluetooth keyboard as well then you are rocking it.

    Great Mouse...

    • Written by from Lake Worth

    This mouse is worth every penny, the gestures work very well and are very precise and its battery life is good.

    The only thing that I could complain about is the lack of gestures like many other users have said. That being relevant, an app called MagicPrefs can let you customize gestures and even add more gestures to do basically whatever command you would like...I really don't know why Apple did not include these customization options with their own drivers.

    I suggest anyone having issues with the lack of customization in gestures or custom 'clicks' should go and download MagicPrefs...you will be surprised at what you can do and how AWESOME really the Apple Magic Mouse is.

    Comfortable and has great scrolling but...

    • Written by from Edmonton

    ...secondary clicking, i.e. right/left clicking is a fiddle. For me there's not enough differentiation between a straightforward click and a right click. I was forever right clicking when I meant straightforward clicking, so I have gone back to option-key clicking.

    That aside, it fits well in my hand, scrolls well and looks gorgeous.

    Pleasantly surprised

    • Written by from Wilsonville

    After years of bad luck with every apple computer accessory under the sun. They've finally got it right. Totally surprised but this mouse always stays connected via blue tooth, has long battery life and simply works. Sure its not the most ergonomic mouse on the planet and it takes some getting used to but once you get past that its awesome. Thank you apple... Now its time to revamp your wireless keyboard because that one is still on my fail list.

    needs more gestures

    • Written by from Greenwood

    needs more gestures. needs to be more comfortable in hand. needs to be able to just tap as a click, right now you have to push all the way down and there is that annoying clicking noise it needs to have the option just like the touch pad to either click all the way down or to just tap. other than that great product.
