    Great mouse

    • Written by from Garden City

    This mouse is great. I was apprehensive in buying the mouse. I myself am a review reader so I get hesitant when reading some of these bad reviews. I use a 2013 macbook pro and have had no problems with this mouse. I find the multifunctions very useful and not confusing at all. I also use this in the classroom. I can have my computer at my desk and the mouse up in front of the classroom to teach and it works just fine. I have had to change the original batteries recently (thought the battery life on those were a little short) but I put in some lithium batteries and seems to be doing just fine. Love the fact that I do not have to shut off this mouse all the time. It senses when the computer is on and off, or sleeping. This is a very functional and useful mouse. Only thing it falls short on is tasks that require you to hold down the first "button" which clicking the second. For example in a first-person shooter where you zoom in your scope with one button and fire the shot with the second. I don't expect this mouse to be a gaming mouse at all but found it almost useless in first person shooters like Borderlands 2.

    Lots of AA Batteries Going in to Landfills

    • Written by from Hopkinton

    The mouse came with my new iMac, a computer I love. It took a few days to get used to the mouse capabilities, and the ponderously slow tracking speed (even on fastest setting). Have had many phantom page swipes, inadvertent zooming, lost signal issues. But, I could live with the poor ergonomics, it is the battery life that gets me. using top of the line Duracell batteries, this is my third pair in 7 weeks. Shouldn't it go in to some sleep mode when not being used?

    Going back to my Logitech Wireless.

    THE Best

    • Written by from Knoxville

    I have been using all kinds of mice since the first computer came out and nothing compares to the ease of use with the Magic Mouse. I love the smooth action and multi functionality on every surface (wood, concrete, granite, pants leg...). It is also extremely accurate. You should check it out for yourself at an Apple store near you.

    Looks cool but needs some nerve

    • Written by from Weston

    Looks really great and most of time it works.
    But it behaves crazy when I am using maps and power points. Looks like it has a brain, it can scroll or zoom in automatically. I am really crazy some times.

    Apple Magic Mouse

    • Written by from Johannesburg

    The thing about Apple products is that they are designed with the human in mind. Intuitive. Smart. Incredible aesthetic. The magic mouse is incredible!

    Extremely disappointing

    • Written by from Highland

    In a nutshell, it was unusable. In almost 30 years of buying Apple products, it's the only one I've had to return because of its dismal performance. It's hyper, hyper sensitive and causes the mouse to zip all over the screen at will. It was a tracking nightmare.

    I tried for a few weeks to get accustomed to it, but it behaved erratically from day one and never stopped. By the end, I was ready to pull my hair out.

    I look forward to the day when Apple retires this version and releases a reliable, stable Magic Mouse.

    Cool functionality, terrible battery life

    • Written by from Tracy

    I received the Magic Mouse with my new iMac 27" and it took a little awhile to get used to. The added functions are unique to the design (swiping up and down) but it does cause problems from time to time. My page will accidentally swipe sometimes with only the slightest touch and it's frustrating to use with Adobe Bridge (if you're a Photoshop user). If you remove your hand from the mouse while in Bridge and put it back on, the thumbnails will freak as they bounce back and forth between photos numerous times. Or, it will scroll through dozens of photos by the slightest touch. It's a common problem and has been noted on Adobe forums extensively.

    But the worst thing about it is the drain on batteries. Like most Apple products, this is a real bummer. I go through batteries every three or four weeks. I use my computer about 8 to 10 hours a day. So, it's been a real toss-up between functionality and battery life issues.

    Not Reliable

    • Written by from SHOREWOOD

    Mouse is the best ever until it stops working. Lasted less than one year, not long enough for something this expensive. Stopped tracking accurately.

    Apple Majic Mouse (hmmph)

    • Written by from PARA HILLS

    I bought the I mac a few months ago and I found the 'magic' mouse rather flimsy and too sensitive and frustrating to use. I would be looking at a page, move the mouse to do something and the page would magnify and to get it back to normal (because tapping the mouse didn't work) I would have to close the page and reopen it, or if I moved the mouse it would slide the page over to another page . It was extremely frustrating. I have had to change 2 batteries in the 'magic' mouse every 3 to 4 weeks, took the mouse back to the shop I purchased it from - they were going to send the mouse away to be repaired until I stood my ground and demanded a replacement as per the law here, the replacement mouse has proven to be as bad as the original in all aspects. I have now gone back to using a Logitech mouse which is easier to use and uses 1 AA battery with an expected lifetime of around 12 months going by past experience.

    perfect in so many ways.. why don't people understand?

    • Written by from St. Paul

    This device is brilliant in that it is the ultimate pinnacle of functionality meeting simplicity. I am saddened by the lack of understanding.

    Love it!

    • Written by from St Catharines

    I ordered a Magic Mouse even though I current have a couple of PCs. I will be purchasing a MAC shortly, but I was too curious to wait to see this mouse. True enough, the mouse will only perform basic point and click functions on the PC, but in addition to this, the scroll function seems to work so that all I need to do to scroll down a web page is to move my finger up & down the mouse. Love this. Now I can hardly wait until I get my MAC (for obvious reasons) & to use this mouse in its entirety.
    Love Apple products.

    Great Mouse...for the most part.

    This mouse is comfortable, responsive and easy to use. But it eats up batteries like crazy and like everything else Apple, is over priced.

    Very bad ergonomics

    • Written by from Delhi

    Get this mouse if you want to have something pretty sitting on your desk.

    I started having pains in my wrists after using this for a week , definitely not recommended for heavy or power users . It uses 2 AA batteries , the battery life is not appalling , but leaves a lot to be desired. Overall i'd say there are better mice in the market for the same or even lesser price group.

    try not to be avant garde...

    • Written by from Hillside

    It boggles my mind that people still prefer this mouse. How does one expect to be constantly using this thing hours on end when working in autodesk or adobe? The form is beautiful and should be in theory or a museum, better as a paperweight [not a in a negative}. This shouldn't be in my hands, it is extremely uncomfortable, one week now and i still cant find the correct or comdfortable way to hold this. There is a fine line between form and function, this takes it to another level. what function does this form follow. first thing that comes up is sliding up someones rear end. It may be that steve forced to produce this thing, but this shouldnt have been in production for this long. Apple will forever champion the design of technology but it is slowly loosing grip with its functionality.

    Best Mouse!

    • Written by from San Antonio

    This has been the best mouse I’ve used.
    Actually, I should say ‘the best mice’ as I have two of these working for me. I have had no problems with either.
    The first I purchased when it was introduced in 2009 and the second one year later so I could have one for work and one for home.
    I’ve used them to give presentations in large rooms with nary a connection issue.
    After five years--even a few drops on a hard floor--the mice still are working. I can’t say that about the other mice I’ve used!

    Junk

    • Written by from Hope

    The mouse came with my 1 year old iMac 27",i love that computer to death,but when it comes to that so acclaimed magic mouse...What a piece of junk that thing is.I'm glad it came with the computer and i didn't have to spend 69$for it.The major problem is connectivity,it simply quits working even with brand new batteries in it.When you play games,it can be very frustrating having to switch the mouse on and off a few times to regain connection.I simply had enough of that hi tech thing and went on craiglist to find an old usb cable apple mouse that works like a charm.The magic mouse ended up magically flying across the room and colliding violently with the opposite wall and blowing into small tiny pieces...There goes apple engineering.

    Great

    • Written by from Las Vegas

    I just got my first MacBook Pro and as much as I love the track pad on my laptop, I'm lost without a mouse. So I purchased a Magic Mouse. This thing is great, all the different gestures you can do, it works 10 ft away if I want it to, I really enjoy this product. The only issue I have with it is the battery cover on the bottom seems cheap. It's loose all the time, and I can tell it might need replacing fairly soon just because it doesn't seem to fit tight enough. But that's the only issue I have. Another great product from Apple. But it's time to give us a price break on your products though, you've made enough, we will always buy your products, just hook us up with some private discount codes or something. I think it's the least you can do.

    absolute junk

    • Written by from South Pasadena

    This is the second apple magic mouse in one year, that has completely quit. I change the batteries and it simply does not go back on. Tried multiple batteries. I replaced the first one at the crazy price apple charges, and five months later, it just stops. One would assume that since it is one of the priciest mouses on the market the quality would be great. No so. I still love apple, but they are making it harder and harder to love them, over time. God, I miss Steve Jobs!
