    the worst mouse

    • Written by from Twickwnham

    I paid a lot of money to this mouse, however, I would suggest you to buy with the cable one. It is impossible to do designs on my MAC with this mouse. First, it disconnects often even if you have 100% battery. Second, it is not ergonomic at all. It is difficult to do right and left clicks. Third, battery goes very quick and you need to spend money for batteries over and over or battery charger.

    Please do not buy this mouse. It is waste of money. You will be regret, trust me. Therefore, I will buy cheaper version with the cable one.

    The Magic Mouse is not good - it's definitely giving me serious hand pain at work! The scrolling action and sensitivity hurt my hand and wrist, and I'm sure I've had more arm and back pain since I started using one. They eat batteries like nobody's business, too.

    There's also an issue with them connecting to different iMacs sometimes. I often have to swap mine with a colleague's.

    Gorgeous mouse with great functionality

    • Written by from waterlooville

    Got this yesterday to go with my Mac Mini and I took it like a duck to water. Was using a Microsoft mouse as a stop gap but this is much better. I love the extra functionality and was missing the back button using the Microsoft mouse with the Mac but now I swipe backwards and forwards with ease and zoom and all is groovy.

    Others complain that it does stuff without asking it too and that it's too low to comfortably fit the palm of your hand. As far as I can see it's not meant too! I hold it with my thumb one side and my ring and pinky on the other with with my middle and index finger hovering above - perfect.

    Bottom line is that it tracks well, the whole surface can scroll, and click and zoom and it gives the Mac the feel of an iPad or iPhone which is where I've come from so I love it.

    Never had such a poor experience with such an expensive mouse

    • Written by from bromley

    Got this home one morning after trip to Apple Store and tried for ages to sync with MacBook. Eventually I opened the back to remove batteries and try my own, only to find the batteries included with the mouse had leaked and rendered mouse useless. Not impressed! Had to jump in car and spend another two hours travelling to shop, parking and exchanging it. Poor experience!

    A big disappointment

    • Written by from Helsinki

    I expected much more from this mouse. Firstly, I was disappointed that the tracking speed couldn't be set to be (much) higher, since I'm used to having a much more sensitive mouse, which requires far less wrist movement.

    Secondly, it is really irritating that the slower the mouse is moved, the cursor starts to move IMPOSSIBLY slowly. This is especially painful when navigating menus, for example, when the mouse speed is typically slower than average.

    I don't know if other brands' wireless mice work with mac computers, but if they do, I would recommend them 100%.

    It's nice to have some gestures that can be performed on the mouse, like on the trackpad. But that hardly matters when Apple haven't even got the basics right and there's no way to change these settings. Big disappointment.

    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

    It seems such a great idea and looks good - but otherwise disappointing kit for someone who needs to be productive on a macbook. I tried to get used to this for a long time but tracking is poor and imprecise, movement is jerky, ergonimics are awkward, click noise is quite loud - and it regularly loses connection to the macbook. I use professional graphics and dev software and find this mouse a real frustration. Back to USB Microsoft mouse..

    Utter garbage. As always with apple, it looks lovely. And then, after a while... sigh.

    It drains the batteries like apple had shares in Duracell. It collects so much grime from a constantly cleaned desk that it's starting to make me paranoid. The bottom battery cover plate has buckled and is now mis-shapen. If you accidentally tap the mouse against the side of your keyboard or something else on your desk it loses it's wi-fi connection and takes an age to find it again...

    Thank god I got it free with my iMac because I threw the ruddy thing in the bin and I'm using my wacom mouse now. Good riddance to it too. You'd be gutted if you paid 70 quid for it.

    It's got two stars because the scroll function is nice. That's about it.

    Much better than the mighty mouse or the trackpad

    • Written by from LONDON

    This is a truly superb piece of kit.

    Plus it doesn't clog up like that little ball on the old mighty mouse !

    Really impressed , plus it is beautifully made and is incredibly beautifully designed - typical Apple brilliance I guess. :)

    Best mouse ever

    • Written by from NOTTINGHAM

    Having only been a Mac user for just over a year am now a total convert. The Magic Mouse is far and away the best I have ever used. Can't understand the gripes of others. It is responsive and adaptable. Love it - thanks Apple for another great product!

    Mouse of Magic

    • Written by from Uddingston

    Great little ergonomic and tactile Apple mouse with more features than your standard PC mounse that works really well with my MacBook Air.
    The features are lovely especially scrolling and web browsing.
    Only downside is that the surface seems to scratch fairly easily so take care with it.

    Best. Mouse. Ever.

    • Written by from YORK

    It amazes me that the same product can perform so differently for so many people. I've had my Magic Mouse now for nearly two years and it's done absolute sterling service. I'm on the road a lot and was initially dubious about how durable it would be, being carted around in my laptop bag, but it's never turned a hair. I use it at least five days a week for around 7-8 hours, but only ever replace the batteries about once every 8-10 weeks, and I use rechargeables so it's not a high cost. Tracking is as sensitive as you'd want, wiping is a time-saving blessing for repetitive navigation tasks, and the fact that it doesn't use a USB port to take up a transceiver is fabulous. I will never, ever go back to a standard, or wired, mouse.

    If I have any complaint, and it's not really a complaint, it's that the optics are open to the elements (ie, the occasional tiny hair or bit of dust from my table-top, which freaks it out). But a short, sharp blow on them usually sorts it out.

    I don't want to contradict the other reviewers on here - clearly they've experienced disappointing performance. All I can say is, the Magic Mouse has been worth every single penny to me.

    Promises much delivers not much

    • Written by from Yeovil

    The most disappointing Apple merchandise ever? Has never tracked properly dips in and out which is intensely frustrating. No benefit to being wireless at all got it with my iMac but still feel the pain. Don't buy. Use my old wired mouse now.

    Can't recommend - lost functionality after 1 year

    • Written by from Woking

    Nice when it works but mine started to malfunction after about a year (i.e. after the warranty finished). Essentially it wouldn't track well. I tried all the recommended solutions with no success. Apple refused to repair or replace. I would really expect Apple stuff to last longer. Very disappointing for a mouse that costs £59! I can't recommend this to anyone.

    The worst sensor Ive ever experienced

    • Written by from Nørresundby

    I love the touch functionality in the mouse, which 75% of the time works as intended. I do on the other hand not like the sensor used in this mouse. It takes several slides across my mouse mat to get from one corner of the screen to the other. That is just not acceptable for a mouse in this price range.

    Great mouse, poor battery life

    • Written by from Hinckley

    Bought one of these and it's great to use. The only two cons are:

    1) Doesn't always recognise a right click
    2) Battery dies SO QUICKLY!

    Worst product Apple ever produced

    • Written by from Newport

    Somebody should have tried the product alongside the wireless keyboard - there is a bizarre imbalance between the light and overly small keyboard and the seemingly overlong, narrow, very heavy and very, VERY scraping - on any surface - (and sharp-edged) Magic Mouse.

    Apple used to excel themselves at ergonomics as well as design. In recent times, Apple managed in a few areas to make design more important e.g. sharp edges on Apple iPhone, cold metal casing on MacBook Pro, overly heavy iPad. Those are minor inconveniences for which there are acceptable workarounds.

    I have tried workarounds for the cumbersome weight and intensely annoying scraping, but this is a premium product and I shouldn't have to. Sorry Apple start again on this one - this is Scarily Not Great! Wireless trackpad, anyone?
