    Great OSX mouse

    • Written by from Glen Burnie

    After using this mouse at home, I find it very difficult to go back to a Logitech BT mouse on my work computer. Then again, I get the 'why is a PC so difficult to use and so slow' feeling on every windows PC I've ever used. This mouse, was 2 steps on OSX, batteries in, power on, (wait 5 seconds or so) mouse working! On windows, just like any other bluetooth mouse, 10+ steps, a download, a bunch of balloon popups, more balloon popups, a failure or two, reboot, another download a bunch of next, next, ok, next, next, yes, ok, Agree, next, next, and struggle to work, struggle to keep Bluetooth connection. This I would not blame on Apple, but don't buy this thinking because it's an Apple mouse, that your PC will magically work better. If you have an iMac, this is the only mouse for you!

    MagicPrefs free software will allow you to customize the mouse and pad to your liking. Swipes, gestures, click area's, secret app shortcut taps if you want!

    The first generation mouse batteries lasted 6 months for me. This second magic mouse came with my 27" iMac. The batteries last 4 weeks max. I need to go to the person I sold my '08 iMac to, and secretly swap the mouse, he'll never know. Apple, if you are listening, I would gladly pay 99$ for a 6,000 MAH lithium ion equipped 1 year rechargeable battery + dock. Or even a inductive charging mouse pad, so it never needs charging!

    Very useful and good mouse

    • Written by from Markham

    I found the mouse too be absolutely a dream to use, the controls are intuitive and movement with the mouse is flawless. But the only problem I have with the mouse is that its extremely fragile, I carried it in my school bag once inside of its case. The mouse didn't fit perfectly in the case and it ended up bumping around in it. This ended up creating many tiny little micro fractures in the mouse and it now looks really ugly.

    A Beautiful Mouse

    • Written by from Sydney

    Design is just gorgeous. It's not designed to be used with your palm resting on the surface of the mouse due to its multi-touch gesture support. But you get used to it as long as you're not planning to use this as a gaming mouse. One thing I don't like is the sensitivity. Some generic mouse seems to have better tracking speed. I changed the setting but can't seem to get it right. Maybe the muti-touch gesture support can be improved but overall I'm really happy with this product.

    Magic Mouse in the House!

    • Written by from Long Beach

    I have really enjoyed using this mouse. It has worked perfectly for me. I appreciate its multi-touch gestures, since I use iOS devices on a regular basis. The only issue for me is that I am 182 cm/6' tall and weigh about 110 kg/245 lb; my fingers are a bit girthy and don't really interface well with this particular mouse; for this reason, I recently purchased a Magic Trackpad, which, so far, I find much more comfortable.

    Both the Magic Mouse and Magic Trackpad are equally priced at US$70 plus tax.

    Stylish mouse with useful features!

    • Written by from Tracy

    Most people dont like the mouse saying its uncomfortable, but i personally love it!
    The way you can scroll just brings lion more to life with my macbook from 2010(i think its 2010.. mayb 2011.) that doesnt have the newest track pads. :)

    Sexy. Useful. and entertaining.

    Almost perfect

    • Written by from Chambersburg

    I had read both positive and negative reviews of this mouse before making my decision. The positive's far exceeded the negatives so I took the plunge. Bottom line, the mouse is brilliant and it works as advertised. Movement is sharp (even for a wired or USB mouse) and crisp and there is zero noticeable Bluetooth lag you normally see from other manufacturers. The button(s) are responsive and whether on a mouse pad or desktop, the unit moves around freely.
    Now for the caveats: Because this mouse is sleek, it is difficult for me to use it for long periods of time, comfortably. If you have big hands, this may not be the mouse for you. Second, it is sensitive so if you set it up for left click/right click operation and you have big hands, you will right click when you meant to left click and vice versa...there is no avoiding it.
    Neither of these 'negatives' are the fault of the device itself and are only meant as warnings to others with large hands.
    I give it four stars simply because it is not made for everyone. However, functionality wise I would say it is 5 stars!

    Excellent Mouse, but...

    • Written by from Regina

    I mainly bought this mouse so I can use the functionality with my MBP. I find it a bit heavy, and the clicks some time isn't as responsive. I downloaded MagicPrefs to tweak a few settings to make it better. The swiping/gestures works great. Its awesome when i'm surfing the web and navigating. It will take time to get use to thats for sure. Still a good product, but I still prefer my logitech mouse with certain computer tasks.

    Magic Mouse

    • Written by from Temple City

    This mouse is beautiful. It looks so cool next to my MacBook pro. It drags on a plain wooden table and is a bit quirky. Maybe my hand is too big or not sensitive. Swiping isn't intuitive for me. For everyday use, I prefer my $20 Logitech M510. I don't think I could do a 8 hour workday on a Magic Mouse.

    Great product for some.

    • Written by from Diamond Bar

    First off, I love this mouse. I got my MM about 6 months after it was released and it has not disappointed me at all. To address the title of this review, the MM is not for everyone. I've been editing photos and videos for about 8 years now and the MM has improved my editing process quite a bit with its touch surface. Taking things up a notch, there are 3rd party apps that allow you to CUSTOMIZE the entire surface of the mouse. As for those who probably will not benefit from the MM are gamers. If you need to click both the left and right side of the mouse, don't bother with this mouse. For those who just use their computer for everyday use, it's a nice touch.

    Beautiful but tracks too slowly

    • Written by from Vancouver

    I bought this mouse in conjunction with my MacBook Air because no trackpad on a PC laptop has ever been as precise as a traditional mouse. Had I known how great the multi-touch trackpad on the MacBook is I never would have bought the mouse. It simply isn't needed.

    Even with the tracking sensitivity set to max in system prefs the mouse takes too large a hand movement to track from one side of the screen to the other. I have always had a very very sensitive mouse on Windows machines and I simply cannot adjust to this mouse.

    The built in swipe/scroll gestures are a great innovation but still limited compared to the gestures available on the MacBook trackpad.

    Apple has all but made the traditional mouse obsolete for most users with their large and easy to use trackpad.

    Magic Mouse

    • Written by from LAGUNA NIGUEL

    I replaced my wired mouse about a years ago, got tired of wire getting in the way, the Magic Mouse works great, so much more convenient and functional than my wired mouse, the only complaint I have is that I have to replace the batteries every couple of months, that's not too bad since I use my computer about 8 hours a day five days a week.

    Can't imagine using any other mouse

    • Written by from NAPA

    The magic mouse isn't perfect, but once you get used to it, other mouses (mice) are clunky, with wheels and buttons. The ergonomics are good too. Once in a while I lose the connection, but it usually pops right back.

    Using this mouse all day, everyday.

    • Written by from Bolingbrook

    I just started using this mouse about three weeks ago, I am on the computer most of the day with my job. The only thing I see that I don't like is the edge of the mouse is
    sharp. It needs to be smoother. For someone like me that works all day with my hand on the mouse it is a bit annoying. I hope this is changed on the next mouse they create. Otherwise I like the way it functions, so I am giving it 4 stars because of this.

    Great!

    • Written by from BETHEL

    Don't listen to other reviews Im literally using this on my bed, with no mouse pad of any sort right now and its working FLAWLESSLY. This thing is probably the best things Ive ever bought myself since i got my MacBook Pro.

    The only thing that stinks is the price.

    Pretty Good

    It takes some time getting used to, that's for sure. And 70 bucks? Expensive. But considering this is apple we're talking about....

    I would recommend this.

    Works OK

    • Written by from HOPKINTON

    I got this mouse with a Mac Pro about 1.5 years ago. Also got the Apple battery charger and Apple batteries. Everything works fine, although it's sometimes a bit sensitive (scrolls or zooms when I don't want it to if I accidentally use an unintended gesture). Somewhat surprised at some of the negative comments. Top surface is smooth (not sticky), rechargeable batteries work fine, nothing has broken during the time I've had it, I have been able to edit images in Photoshop, speed seems fine and easily adjustable (I have a 27 inch monitor, so I would certainly notice if it was too slow). Batteries seem to need recharging every few weeks or so (not every day). I've used a variety of other mice with Macs, PCs, Unix workstations, and this seems as good as any I've used (but of course there are many others I haven't tried). Basically satisfied with it.

    It's ok. Works for me.

    • Written by from Hercules

    Yeah it doesn't right click, so if you are putting microsoft or some other big right click using program in your MAC computer, you need a different mouse. And the battery cover comes off once each couple weeks and I put it back on in 20 seconds.
    But with my mac mini no problem. I don't even use a track pad-just the tabletop. And there's a bump on my table where a finishing nail rises up on the surface and I hit it about once every 2 weeks with the mouse and knock off my battery cover, put the cover back on then I go pound the nail down again.
    I also rest the heel of my hand on the table while I finger scroll. I can rest my thumb on one side and little finger on the other side on the table for rest also. If your hands are small you could only rest on one side.
    This is not a horrible mouse like the old hockey puck mouse. Go to a mac store, best buy, etc if you can and try one.
    My only complaint: it eats batteries every 3 months so to be ecological you need rechargeable batteries. I've had this mouse 1 & 1/2 years.

    A great accessory for your Mac Book Pro

    • Written by from GOLDEN

    When it comes to wanting to do some true graphic design, development, general use, or gaming on your Mac Book Pro, this is a must have tool. It allows you to sit back and work from afar without the need of wires, while having the amazing combination of a trackpad and a mouse, this truly is a "magic" mouse. It is definitely a must have for any mac user.
