    What a disappointment

    • Written by

    I wanted to like it but my warm hands make it far too responsive and it skitters all over the place. But worse, it refuses to work on anything but a really rough surface and I have to hold that down with my other hand. I need three hands! I've gone back to my trusty Logica which works on anything and lets me enjoy my computer.

    A great mouse

    • Written by from Brighton

    Although this mouse has got some bad press because it's not ergonomic enough, what do you expect? To incorporate the touch/gesture technology it has to be the way it is.

    It is incredibly flat and it will take a while to get used to but once you have, you'll love it.
    For gaming it's terrible as left and right clicks/holds are often misinterpreted but I expected that and didn't buy it with the intentions to use it for games.

    In summary this is another great, innovative mouse for general home-office use and worth the £56

    Beautiful to touch

    • Written by from LOUGHBOROUGH

    Took awhile to get used to as it is a little flat, but once you give it a chance and get used to it the way the touch sensitive top works is just divine.

    I've never liked the mac mouses and i've always used a 3rd party 2 button laser mouse, but i love this.

    Apple, you got this right.

    Mouse ok if you haven't used mighty mouse

    • Written by from leigh

    I bought this mouse thinking that it would be off high standard and better, i had the old mighty mouse before this and it was much better, the mighty mouse had side buttons which allowed you to view screens easily this doesn't and takes a lot longer to do what you needed to do. also the price tag of £56 if steep. It is a clever mouse just missing the side buttons.

    Excellent Product

    • Written by from South Shields

    I have just bought this and I think it is the best mouse I have used.

    Fits really nice in my hand and the functions are very responsive.

    Very slick product.

    Brilliant.

    • Written by from Birmingham

    Firstly how it pairs with my iMac? So easy! no USB dongle so instantly frees up a USB 2 port, brilliant.

    How easy it is to use ? My partner who is IT phobic used it perfectly first time straight out the box

    How good does it look ? It is like all Apple products totally stunning, perfect design in concept and form. Its wireless so looks like modern art.

    How much does it cost ? £50. Bargain, worth that money alone in all the R&D that must have gone into it.

    Possible imporovement ? would have been great if it emitted a muted light when depressed.

    Packaging ? Should have been completely in recycled card, would have made the recycling footprint almost non existent and added to Apples already excellent green credentials.

    Should you buy one ? Oh I most defeinetly think so, dont you. :-)

    Title fight KO - the new champion, Magic Mouse...

    • Written by from BARNSLEY

    It was a short fight. Magic took Mighty out in the first round with a knockout punch to the trackball. This thing works in every area Mighty was found wanting. Positive click action, robust feel and comfortable in use. The profile is more shallow than a conventional mouse but it's no detriment at all. If you've configured Active Screen Corners on Desktop then Expose is only a swipe away. The base resembles two sled runners and consequently doesn't capture dust like the skirt on Mighty. Free from a mouse mat the accuracy of the laser tracking eliminates desk clutter and encourages you to place the mouse instinctively where you want it, instead of shuffling around the confines of a mat. I had been put off buying Magic Mouse through reading reviews from naysayers here. I'd say you can disregard the negative reviews, just go and get one. You won't be disappointed.

    Just great

    • Written by from DARLINGTON

    Amazing product, feels a little wide to begin with but the touch nature of the device requires a wider flat feel. Team this up with magicprefs and this thing is a blessing to your workflow and whole Mac experience.

    Great design.. poor battery life!

    • Written by from ASHFORD

    I was very pleased when (after three months of waiting) my i7 iMac arrived with its wireless keyboard and mouse. The keyboard I thought would take a bit of getting used to but was fairly quick. The mouse on the other hand I was not that impressed with. It has a very poor battery life and after just 30 days of 8 hrs a day 5 days a week use required its battery changing with just a few hours warning, Put some new batteries in and they seem to be lasting even less time! Been in for just 4 days and power level already showing 86% Keyboard is still at 100%!!

    Big disappointment

    • Written by from LONDON

    Not pleased at all, feels really heavy compared to the might mouse - I realise it's the batteries but because the shape and texture of it also feels all wrong, it seems slippery and like it never really goes where I want it. I also keep scrolling things by mistake, and the right hand second click doesn't always work.

    You can't squeeze it so I can't use it for Expose unless I sacrifice my second click which I don't want to do. The two-finger 'navigation' gesture is fairly useless as far as I can tell and feels quite uncomfortable to do.

    And finally, unless I'm missing something, gestures that work on the macbook trackpad don't work on this (as I was expecting), such as zoom and rotate.

    I can only hope that a software update will come out to provide more gesture recognition. At the moment this feels like an expensive step backwards, and I've switched back to my mighty mouse.

    Good mouse but does not worth 56 pound

    • Written by from plymouth

    The mouse is stylish and sleek , but one of the biggest concern is the battery life of the mouse and the inability to use rechargeable batteries , and the second thing is that there is no specific software for the mouse it self .

    Apart from that its really good on every surface i used it on , and its comfy for long use

    It's looks nice, but...

    • Written by from Chelmsford

    ...there's one really annoying problem. I tend to rest two fingers on the mouse as I'm using it (and as I have always done with other mice), and the issue here is that the right click will not work at all like this, unless I lift both fingers off the mouse surface first. Sounds minor, but this is actually a really annoying problem. For a supposedly multi-touch device, not being able to detect a right click when another finger is resting on its surface seems very odd.

    Other, less irritating problems include the mouse speed being a little too slow, even when set to max in the preferences, and personally, I'd have preferred a slightly higher profile design as I find it a little too flat when using it.

    I can live with some of the issues, but Apple really need to sort out the right click functionality, otherwise mine may sadly end up on an auction site.

    Expose, dashboard, middle click, and MUCH MORE

    • Written by from London

    People complaining about expose and middle clicks, go download "MagicPref", it gives you the choice of one finger middle axis click. 2 finger click, 3 finger click, 4 finger click, swipe, tap, etc etc. you get to customise the clicks with about, I don't know, a million functions.

    And yes, it's free. A simple google search for 'MagicPref" would give you the site/download.

    Mighty Magic Mouse

    • Written by from Lockerbie

    Only had this a short while and I love it, slides very smoothly, feels very slick, good weight and scrolls better than any mouse I've used before.
    Expose is easy to set up, just set the secondary click as right button in mouse preferences and then set secondary mouse button in expose preferences for all windows etc and Bobs your uncle.
    Overall, a great mouse, go buy one, you know you want too........

    Not as good as Mighty Mouse!

    • Written by from MINEHEAD

    I am the biggest Apple fan you will ever meet, but this is just a £55 package of disappointment!
    The mouse is FAR from easy to use and lacks some basic functions - the biggest of which is the Expose shortcut. The Mighty Mouse used to be squeezed for Expose, the MacBook Pro uses 4 fingers to swipe, Magic Mouse does not have this. Freeware does exist to combat the issue but makes transition back to trackpad difficult if you forget to turn the software off.
    Also, I have found that the laser does not work on such a variety of surfaces as the previous mouse, glass being the biggest issue.
    More work needed - B for effort!

    sorry, one not for an architect!

    • Written by from hanwell

    This is a very well design mouse and good for use if you are just viewing the internet or desktop publishing.

    If you are an architect, student or otherwise, stay away from this mouse, it is not sketchup or vectorworks friendly. The middle button, used for snapping and command rotate is not available making life more difficult by having to use rotation on screen increasing production time.

    oh well.. thats another £56 down the drain!

    Brilliant

    • Written by from NOTTINGHAM

    Really pleased with it... i use it for about 5/6 hours every day.. i have used the batteries that came with the mouse and they still have 69% life left and i have used it for 6 hours every day since christmas day 09! So the battery life is fantastic... the touch of it is really well designed, and to scroll down you just slide your finger down the mouse... it is fantastic and wonderful christmas present.!
