    Expensive disappointment

    • Written by from Worcester

    I loved the idea of a bluetooth mouse with a recharging pad - but what a disappointment. It constantly loses its connection with the iMac - so frustrating!

    Avoid this product.

    • Written by from UUSIKAUPUNKI

    The title should emphasize my message. Do not acquire this product. You'll be sorely let down.

    First of all. Ergonomics are totally wrong. They have been sacrificed on the altar of nice shape. My hand is totally broken using this product.

    Second of all. This might be my personal preference but, the motion sensor of the mouse is positioned on the top of the mouse bottom. This means that all the mouses that I have used since 1994 which have had either ball, infrared or laser in the middle of the mouse will feel weird. Actually I never got used to the Magic Mouse. The motion just feels bad.

    The touch sensitive surface is a good innovation but not practical. Usually I just end up touching it by accident and end up scrolling somewhere that I do not want to.

    Conclusion, if you have ever before used a mouse do not buy this. It'll not be worth it.

    Best Ever!

    Besides my Macbook Pro, this is the best thing i have ever brought! If you have big hands & find a trackpad too fiddly, get this! Its ideal for scrolling in Logic Pro, i love it!!

    Great for the MacBook, not great for the iMac

    • Written by from Cathair na Mart

    I like the Magic Mouse, especially its built-in trackpad. When I travel with it (and the spare batteries and charger for safety's sake), it works great next to my MacBook Pro. But at home where i have an iMac and Thunderbolt display, I find the tracking is just too slow and unreliable to zip the cursor from the right edge of the right screen to the left edge of the other. I tried looking in settings for anything that would improve this... but at home I'm just using the wired Mighty Mouse because it performs better. For travelling, though, the Magic Mouse is... magic.

    Trully magic

    • Written by from swinford

    Using this mouse nearly a year and never had any issues or problems with it. Never had dropped connection or so. Very comfortable,very sensitive,nice looking mouse. Ok,the battery life might be bit better,but is not that bad as some people are saying. My one lasts about 5-6 weeks,which is not very bad. Overall would recommend this mouse to every mac user. It worth every single cent for it. Trully magical mouse

    Mixed feelings

    • Written by from Varde

    I have a love/hate relationship with this mouse. The touch functions are perfect for browsing the web, PDF files, switching spaces and general OS X navigation. And it's absolutely gorgeous.

    But, clicking requires more force than on other mice, right clicking is cumbersome if you do it often and it offers more friction than the Logitech mouse I used before (after a week of use, I still have the feeling that I'm grinding it against my mouse pad).

    I ended up with two mice on my desk - the Magic Mouse, because the multitouch features are just too good to give up on; and the Logitech G9, which I use whenever I need precision and comfort.

    Shame I can't have both at the same time!

    Not good ....

    • Written by from Cambridge

    Well Apple have kept up their tradition of being awful at designing functional mice. This thing looks nice but will make your hand ache within minutes of using it and when they add a right click button, it doesn't work. Very disappointed. Sometimes Apple need to adopt the "if it aint broke..." philosophy and not try and reinvent wheels.

    Good but....

    • Written by from Maidstone

    I really wanted to like this mouse and tried very hard to for several weeks, but I had to give up and go back to my old one. It does everything you want in Lion with all the gestures etc., but I just can't get used to the shape and response. It sounds daft but when I'm looking at the screen and my hand is resting on the mouse, it somehow actives a gesture and the screen flips or jiggles. When I go to select something, unless I am very careful about how I position my finger to perform a click, the screen moves and I miss the object and have to scroll back to find it. All very frustrating. It seems that unless you treat it like a trackpad and keep your hand well clear until you want to use it, the screen is constantly jiggling around as you palm accidentally activates movements. It's probably the way I am holding it because my son doesn't have this problem, but I did try keeping my hand up in the air more, but got a very sore wrist within half an hour.
    Hopefully Apple will bring out a mark 2 version where just the front of the mouse is sensitive so you can still rest your hand on the back. (I've tried masking the rear with Duck Tape but it doesn't look or feel very nice!)

    Apple Magic Mouse - Best Mouse I've ever Owned

    • Written by from Bangor

    I've read most of the reviews on here and i think they've mostly been quite harsh on this item. moving from the trackpad ( counter intuitive i know) to this i found it incredibly easy to get used to and within minutes i'm using it as if i had for years.

    Love this mouse!

    • Written by from Liverpool

    I have had this mouse since Christmas 2010 and I have decided to do a review. (I have the Macbook White Unibody 2010). The bluetooth is an excellent feature as it saves having loads of wires or a dongle. The batteries in it last very long. The multi touch gestures work fantastic along with OS X Lion and OS X Snow Leopard. Would definitely recommend it to a friend. The white matches my Mac and Universal dock and iWires mini display port to HDMI adapter. Might even be getting the Wireless keyboard soon. Excellent mouse - best I have ever used.

    almost perfect

    • Written by from Glamorgan

    well the touch contoroles work perfect never miss a beat but i think that they consume to much pwer and the batteys run out fast. The magic mouse looks fab but unfortunetly i does not feel as good as it looks with prolonged use your hand will start to ache but if you are only doing light editing and web browsing then it will be fine for u i do think tho for £59 it is expensive but in my opinion it is the most functional mouse in the world

    pleasantly surprised!

    • Written by from Nailsworth

    I was sceptical about buying one of these at first as I read a lot of reviews complaining about battery life. However, after buying the magic mouse with an apple battery charger, i'm not sure I needed the charger after all! I've had the mouse for over a week now and the battery level is still on 100% so i'm assuming it's going to last a fair while. I think the trick might be to switch the mouse after after use (although there's been many nights where i've forgotten to do this). Anyway, I will update my review when the batteries do run out and we'll see how long they last... Also, I've had no problems with comfort at all and have really enjoyed using it. My hands are pretty big too so I don't think big hands will necessarily be a problem with everyone!

    Not very good if editing

    • Written by

    If you're going to be keyframing while editing, it's extremely irritating. You may accidentally go to the next frame if you finger slips ever so slightly. Can be really irritating if you're concentrating on something. There doesn't appear to be a way to stop this in Final Cut.

    The design is also very unergonomic. It gives you slight hand cramps and it's too small for my hand. Maybe it would fit a females hand, but it doesn't fit my hand.

    Please do not get it if you're planning on keyframing. I recommend the wired Mighty Mouse. You won't have the frame issues and it's wired, meaning no replacement of batteries necessary. The only problem I see with the Mighty Mouse is the wire making the desk a bit cluttered.

    Apart from editing, it's rather nice. Scrolling is good and feels more natural. It's just accidental skipping of frames that's ever so annoying.

    Stylish and yet....

    • Written by from IVER

    Great looking piece of kit, but use it in anger and you get variable results. Not very accurate for FCP, poor range, lumpy performance and lagging response. I've resorted to Mighty, can't get on with this one after three months of persistence.
    Works well as a door wedge

    If you use windows on your Mac, don't use this mouse as the right clicking is very difficult

    Great Mouse. Apple gets better and better!

    • Written by from BLACKWOOD

    Received this mouse this morning and cant believe I didnt buy it sooner. I have been using the cordless mouse by Apple with my Mac but decided to treat myself to the magic mouse. It is fab! it is so easy to use and set up. Get it - you wont regret it. It looks gorgeous and is another great Apple product!

    The best mouse I've ever tried!

    • Written by from Glostrup

    The new Apple Magic Mouse is absolutely the best mouse I've ever tried. The integration of the multi-touch technology in a mouse has resulted in a genius product... and then it's not even that expensive either. Absolutely magical and highly recommended!

    Magic indeed

    • Written by from Kings Lynn

    i love my magic mouse. I never get a painful wrist when using it, normally a problem with me. It just seems like an extension of my hand. I personally don't like a lot of buttons so the simplicity suits me well. The two fingered side swipe for moving back a page in Safari is brilliant. The only criticism i have is that the scroll is a bit over sensitive when used in Google Maps and a number of similar programs. that is why I have only given it four stars
