    Much trouble with mouse

    • Written by from Owensboro

    I really dislike the "magic mouse," as it's been nothing but trouble since I got my iMac back in January 2011. The crux of the problem is that there are some kind of sensors on the mouse which frequently malfunction. For example, I will be on one webpage and suddenly, the previous web page will pop up. Not a big problem you think. What about when you've just finished your daily blog, and you're going to post with the mouse, and this happens. Then, it's not such a small thing. And, there is no going back to what was being written on the previous page. Somehow (?) that page no longer exists. In fact, I will be surprised if I can really post this review given the plethora of problems I've had with this particular mouse. Another major problem I have is with Google maps and Mapquest. I am a geography buff, and there is absolutely no rhyme or reason when my hand is on the mouse if the map will enlarge or move as directed. I've tried placing my hand on different places on the mouse, but that experiment was fruitless. There is no logic to my seemingly illogical mouse. Maybe the problem is with this particular mouse, but suffice to say, I will never buy another "magic mouse."

    Dead Magic Mouse

    • Written by from San Francisco

    I would agree with most users and was very satisfied with the mouse. Until a week ago when all of a sudden the mouse just died, without any warning. No green light, no pairing via bluetooth, despite following all leads found online and via my local genius. I'm just over warranty so SOL. Buyer, beware - I'm not the only one.

    Magic but very limited.

    • Written by from Sunnyvale

    Yes it is nice design and "Magical" with swipes and scrolling etc etc. But thats it. what else can you do. My 2 year old mouse has additional buttons for expose, scroll wheel and middle button press for more options.

    Also, because the surface is touch sensitive I always have problem with accidental scrolling when you don't want to. Then you have to keep your fingers raised which makes your wrist to be in a awkward position.

    I would not recommend this mouse. Looks nice but terrible.

    Looks aren't everything

    • Written by from Chicago

    While the Magic Mouse is really cool and sleek looking it's a horrible product. I don't know if the Magic Mouse software has changed in the past 2 years but I bought one 1-2 years ago and have been miserable using it ever since. I went back to my regular (not so sleek) wireless apple mouse.

    The Magic Mouse is so jittery and the slightest finger brush across it (lifting your finger off the mouse) sends your document scrolling mindlessly to the left or right; loosing your place.

    I've tried everything to configure this thing so that it works well from the preference settings to third party settings and nothing works. Don't wast your money or you'll get frustrated. Apple, you need to work on the touch sensitive software and do further testing before releasing a product like this. I wish I could get my $69 back. :(

    Chews up batteries!

    • Written by from Bloomingdale

    As a solution Apple makes you buy rechargeable batteries. Where there should have been a rechargeable lithium-ion battery implemented into the mouses design from the start. I've had mine for about a year now and I think the earth has become warmer by a few degrees from all of the batteries used up globally by this horrible mouse design. Hope they'll fix it soon. DON'T GET IT! There really is nothing special about this product. The swipe features are not that amazing nor will they improve your work speed when working on projects. It's also annoying in Adobe Suite products. Completely incongruent with the way the zoom and pan features work (along with keyboard shortcuts). I have gone back to the previous Apple mouse. Also, really annoying in Google Maps.

    Terrible Mouse

    • Written by from BROOKLYN

    Go by yourself a generic $20 mouse over this hyped-up piece of junk. Incredibly poor drag, awkward to hold and use, and constantly disconnecting.

    Frustrated

    • Written by from Keilor

    Unless there are some settings that need adjustment (I have checked preferences) this mous is a waste. It seems to have a mind of its own and responds only when it feels like it. I intend on returning/exchanging it.

    Bought 2 in a year. Not buying a third.

    • Written by from Sedgewick

    Product with a lot of potential, but not at all a value for the money. Very disappointing. Overly delicate product cannot take heavy use, multiple lost connections (stopped warning when the battery was becoming low and just dies unexpectedly). Not buying one again.

    Failed to meet expectations

    • Written by from Bonn

    I am a huge Apple fan. MacBook Pro, IPAD 2, IPOD, IPOD nano, Mac Wireless Keyboard,... I have it all!

    I have been loyal to Logitech mouses for years. I had several models, including the VX, and since I got the Performance MX I stopped looking any further. Simply the best mouse!

    Ergonomics are just PERFECT and it recharges the AA battery via USB cable when necessary. Only point against is that it does not connect directly to the MacBook bluetooth and requires the USB wireless dongle. For this reason, and for the functionalities advertised, I decided to try the Apple Magic Mouse. Veredict: HORRIBLE! The multi touch is of course nice, but the ergonomics are a total FAILURE! I felt wrist strain after the first 20 min! Also, the speed is quite slow, even configured as maximum on the mouse settings. I return it and I am back at the Logitech.

    Best luck for Apple R&D to beat the Logitech Perfomance MX!

    Hate it

    After 1 day of using it, I found it useless. My MBP track pad is better. It doesn't work on Windows 7 bootcamp.

    Mouse does not stand up

    • Written by from Toronto

    Had mighty mouse - problems with track ball clogging up
    have used magic mouse for over two years on a standard vinyl desk pad and on a formica desk top. Bottom runners have worn so badly that the aluminum case is now touching the desk pad and the switch is almost flush with the bottom of the unit
    I do use this mouse a lot - however i do not abuse it. Was told by Eaton Centre Apple store to get a different desk pad - this pad is no different for others I have used
    They refused to repair the mouse - told me to buy a new one
    This product has considerable initial appeal but is clearly not all that durable

    Not Ergonomic at all!!

    • Written by from Guatemala

    After many hours of using it, your hand will reject it. Apple should design a better mouse for those who use it almost every day.

    Brutal mouse and fed up with it

    • Written by from Calgary

    This is just a outright poor product from Apple. I rely heavily on my mac products and this mouse doesn't cut it. A waste of $70.

    Worst mouse ever!

    • Written by from Comox

    I've had this mouse for over a year and it's the most frustrating thing about my awesome iMac! It's so sensitive that it scrolls and zooms all the time with just a slight movement of my finger above it. Batteries run out constantly.

    Awful

    • Written by from Charlestown

    This mouse is uncomfortable in the hand and causes involuntary navigation back and forward - a lot. If your surface has bumps it will switch off the mouse while moving and it takes quite a while to reconnect. I would have been better off with a $10 mouse.

    Terrible! NOT FOR PROFESSIONAL USE!

    • Written by from NEW YORK

    ONE OF WOST APPLE PRODUCT EVER BOUGHT.
    IT SEEMS LIKE APPLE PRODUCTS QUALITY IS GOING DOWN EVEN THOUGH THEIR SALES IS GOING UP SO HIGH!
    Design is Futuristic and Tech sounds Incredible, But Forget to use this one!
    Very difficult to move it around, and not accurate.
    Especially Definitely not for Design, Music, Videos Production work or Any Professional Use.
    It will slip all around, and you will make mistakes all over. takes more time.
    Also Battery dies very fast, even the most expensive Duracell, It doesn't really matter.
    All Professionals should get an regular Apple mouse for Professional use.
    NOT FOR PROFESSIONAL USE!!!

    Horrible!

    • Written by from ORANGE CITY

    If you are in the design industry, do NOT get this mouse! Whenever I'm working in Adobe, every little bump makes my screen fly all over the place. I spend more time trying to find my work out in "space" then actually working! The wireless is nice, but not worth it...
