    Overly sensitive

    • Written by from Smyrna

    I wanted to love this device so much but in the end I replaced it with the trackpad. My main complaints are over the sensitivity. For instance when using maps it would zoom in way too much are out too far when barely moving my fingers, or simply trying to drag and drop. Often times I would be moving the mouse over the map and it would zoom.

    Another example is I could not be using the mouse and when I go to rest my hand from using the keyboard I would accidentally touch the side, moving the cursor to another window and it would change focus.

    As great as an idea as this was the execution just did not pan out. I recommend getting the trackpad instead.

    Not great

    • Written by from Eugene

    The magic mouse worked great until I upgraded my iMac to Lion. Now it keeps locking up, losing connection, freezes - went back to a wired mouse. Spent numerous hours trying various fixes but still the same issues. I would not recommend purchasing the Magic Mouse unti Apple finds a fix to this problem.

    Not great in windows on my Macbook Air

    • Written by from Laval

    Slow to resume... Need to click the left button. Right button click need to pressed too far on the right. The scrolling is not as precise as it is with a scroll wheel. The top shinny part is extremmely easy to scratch. Just left it in my bag for a day and tons of scratch already. I much prefered my old mouse.

    Battery life is miserable (1 set of Duracell per month)

    • Written by from Saint-Bruno

    I'm using this mouse at work (mon-fri, typically 38h/week).
    I like the gesture capabilities and design.
    However, the battery life is really poor!
    Since I have it (a little more than 3 months), I had to change the batteries 3 times.
    How come is the battery life so short??
    I'm using a Logitech mouse on my PC and have a battery life of at least 6 months!

    Please Apple, do something regarding battery/energy stuffs. I though the iPhone 4S was the only device with battery life issues.... :(

    Good to use but easily falls apart

    • Written by from Oslo

    I like using the magic mouse, but it annoys me how the battery cover always comes off. I have to use tape to keep it in place, but it is otherwise okay.

    dissappointed

    • Written by from Houston

    previous mouse design would tell you when battery life is low(indicator at top of screen shows). this one just stops-no warning. this one's metal strip/bottom will fall off fairly easy. its a flimsy mouse...poorly designed

    Magic Mouse Battery Life Disappeared overnight like MAGIC

    • Written by from Goodna

    I'm pretty happy with the Apple Magic Mouse (all the function) swiping which is cool to have. But for something that cost $75AUD retail would it be good to have longer battery life? Don't you think? Battery Life Disappeared just like the name MAGIC.

    Less Than Magic

    • Written by from Hopewell Junction

    Ok, so its pretty to look at, very minimalist and the scrolling is nice. However, I have had the magic mouse for about 2 months now (it came with my new imac) and I have now returned to the $10 case logic mouse I was using prior due to the following issues/ annoyances.
    -Randomly pages back to the last screen you were on when you return your hand to the mouse after typing or just while browsing. Like after I type this review and go to click preview the magic mouse interprets my hand returning to the mouse as a page back command. Very frustrating.
    -Heavy to move around= hand strain.
    -Metal bottom. If so much as a grain of sand gets under the mouse's metal bottom it grates against the mousepad like "nails on chalkboard". Eeeek!
    -Eats through batteries, already had to change them..after 2 mos come on.

    So sad and definitely not what I was expecting from apple or a $70 mouse.

    love it except when it doesn't work!!!

    • Written by from new york

    Left click stops working randomly for long periods of time, comes back when it feels like it. Tried the "trick" of sliding the power button ever so slightly down towards "off" but that stopped working. It is not "found" by bluetooth even when it's working (odd!), and changing the settings under "mouse" doesn't help. (Switching left-click to right click, for example, only makes the left-click not work as a right-click, so then you have two clicks not working.) I love this mouse except when it stops working!!! I've only had it since august (less than three months). Driving me nuts. And I haven't even upgraded to Lion from Snow Leopard yet. Cannot recommend it as I see it's very buggy all over the internet forums. Ironically, it's working now, as I click "submit." Poor mouse.

    Get the trackpad instead

    • Written by from Whitesboro

    I have a Magic Mouse that I use at work and a Magic Trackpad that I use at home. The Magic Trackpad is far superior to the Magic Mouse. Gestures are second nature on the trackpad which makes the overall experience of using OSX Lion far more enjoyable. The Magic Mouse is a great mouse, but every day I wish I had a Magic Trackpad at work.

    power consumption is very large .....

    • Written by from Hillsborough

    I've used this mice for over 6 months. The shape and function is better than previous version, but the power consumption is very bad. I need to change twice per month. I hope Apple can improve this point in the next version???

    Painful!

    • Written by from Sacramento

    I love the idea of this mouse but for me it was physically painful to use. The mouse is very small and flat and is the opposite of ergonomic for my hands.

    Using any of the gestures requied me to curl my fingers under into a sort of claw which after two weeks lead to knots and pain in my shoulder/trapezius and bestowed the name "torture mouse" upon this product.

    My advice - !!!Try one for several days of normal work routines before buying!!!
    In the end I bought the magic trackpad which is much more comfortable for me.

    Ok while it lasted...

    • Written by from Trussville

    When I bought my iMac and pulled the magic mouse out I thought it was the coolest thing ever. Until time passed, more and more problems arose.

    First off, it doesn't let you right-click, second, the bottom of the mouse is rough and it scrapes both the table and underneath the mouse.

    One day it just stopped working all-together. Just stopped. So i had enough, I bought a white Microsoft wireless mouse and it works just as well (maybe even better)

    For College Students

    • Written by from la quinta

    This mouse is quite nice. It is sleek and it is beautiful. However, if you are in college and are debating whether or not to get this mouse, i would suggest no. I bought this and i am rather unhappy with the dual finger swipe options. If you have a laptop, do not get the mouse. Buy lion and use the trackpad. It is better and more convenient. Don't be like me and have it sit near your computer all the time and never use it.

    Cheaply Made

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    This does not appear to be among Apples's finest moments. Battery compartment can fall open after a little use. Battery drains fast....It's hard to resist a wireless mouse but Track Pad is a better deal.

    Ergonomically awful

    • Written by from Moscow City

    The thing is so thin your fingers would heart after about half an hour of actively surfing the web. It doesn't seem so hi-technological when you realize that a product full of such a nice features was just not so well designed. I'd rather buy a Microsoft's ergonomic mouse.

    Great idea. Less than great execution.

    • Written by from Duns Creek

    Don't get me wrong, the IDEA of the wireless Magic Mouse is great. The ability to scroll with just the touch of a finger on its smooth surface is wonderful. Not getting hung up in a cord is terrific.

    Now, if only the little darling would stay connected without me having to use my track pad once or twice a day to "find Bluetooth mouse." And if only the actual mousing experience wasn't so sluggish.

    I'm a graphic designer. The mouse is a precision tool for me. Well, it used to be. With the Magic Mouse it's kinda "well the cursor is NEAR where you want it, isn't that good enough?"

    I think I'd put up with the cord just to have a mouse that stayed connected to my mac, and moved as well as my old mouse on my previous mac. Or maybe I'll just buy a trackball. Yeah, that's an idea. Buy a trackball. Right, over to the store for me...

    Magic mouse

    • Written by from Manchester

    It does everything a mouse has to do. It does it well for being wireless. The only downside which is a real killer for me is the scrolling. It ruins just about everything. It is often unresponsive or simply lags on movement. Without this defect it would be perfect.
