    lovely mouse

    • Written by from Croydon

    I only bought this mouse today but so far I am loving it. It is a bit of an odd shape but I find it comfortable to use and it glides seamlessly. It's like a conventional mouse with some really happy extras :-))))

    Solid Quality

    • Written by from Surbiton

    When I was in the Apple store buying this, I kept asking myself "why am I spending £56 on a mouse?", I thought I was crazy.
    I've had the mouse a couple of days now and it's been in constant use; it is comfortable to hold, has a solid high quality feel to it without being heavy and cumbersome. The swipe features are almost intuitive and it is so nice not to clutter up the desk with cables.
    Expensive yes it is, but buy it anyway, you wont be disappointed.

    Tracking Speed

    • Written by from Radstock

    I've had the mouse for a year now and find that it suits my purposes admirably. I only use scroll and swipe, the other options I find a little complicated to use. Tracking speed was poor until I downloaded magic prefs, used their settings and now the speed is excellent. Another point in it's favour is the way my wife can use it, it still functions perfectly when she is sitting at 100 degs off to the computer. (She has sight issues). Everything considered, I am pleased with the mouse, but now of course, along comes the trackpad!

    A great product!

    • Written by from Galway

    before this i thought that this mouse is not ergonomic. u might feel so at first. but after using it for a few hours, i think that this mouse i great. is makes my job easier. u can drag easily. the key is not to use the mouse at the edge of the table (move further away to your front). by doing so, u wouldnt hurt your wrist. however, it is not suitable for gaming. I LOVE IT!

    Great mouse!

    • Written by from hythe

    The Magic Mouse is amazing - lovely tactile click and intuitive scrolling and swiping gestures. To right click you need to initially lift your left index finger and then right click due to it's one button design, it will think you still want to left click. I know some people right click without lifting their index finger so I wanted to make it aware. Using the mouse takes 5 minutes to get use to, especially it's tracking algorithm where if you move the Magic Mouse slow the cursor on screen moves slow and if you move it faster it moves faster, etc - for me the Magic Mouse works best on the maximum speed setting.

    It's probably been said before, superb.

    • Written by from Christchurch

    What a great piece of kit? I can't fault it even after using trackerballs, tablets and multi-scroller 30 function devices (ok, slight exaggeration !).

    It doesn't quite do what I do on my Pro trackpad but the Magic M is far more precise, even on the most sensitive settings. Love it.

    Almost 60 quid is a lot of money, but, without a doubt, for me, this is probably the best human interface I've used out of a box.

    near perfect

    • Written by from Farcet Fen

    Had this a month. Still getting used to the low profile but it really is great. The swife function is brilliant - saves so much mouse movement. What about an 'enter/return' function on the upgrade to do away with more mouse moves or having to take your hand from the mouse to the keyboard? No expose - big deal. Cant stand it anyway.

    Fantastic Mouse

    • Written by from Newnham

    To make full use of the magic mouse, you have to download 3rd party app "Magic Prefs". Once you can make use of all the gestures, taps and swipes, this mouse becomes the most natural way of interacting with OS X.

    I use this mouse with logic pro 9, as well as all the usual suspects, and I find it accurate, the scrolling is extremely useful and long hours at the computer seem comfortable on the wrists.

    As for the Battery life... I've been using the mouse for a week now, and it's still on 100%... would have to use it for longer to be sure of the overall battery life.

    The only negative I can think of is the price, there are so many cheaper mice on the market, £50+ seems a lot, but it is the best mouse I've ever used.

    Top marks!!

    Outstanding

    • Written by from Newport Pagnell

    My old mouse with the track ball on the top clogged and lost some of the tracking facility. I decided to invest in the new magic mouse despite some of the less favourable reviews. I did try it before parting with any cash at my local Apple store took to it straight away. I've now been using it for two days with Photoshop, Illustrator and QuarkXpress and its performance is faultless. It's another superbly designed and manufactured item from Apple. Get one.

    You'll like this......

    • Written by from Stockport

    Yes you will.
    I've got the old version of this mouse, with its scrolling little button/nipple. It's great, couldn't fault it. I've got it still working on my Tower behind me and it does a fantastic job.
    I've had the "Magic" version almost six months now, and it's superb. It's very accurate, more accurate than the old version in my opinion and your actions are easier to translate between it and a trackpad on a laptop, if like me that is what you are using it in conjunction with. (MBP10.6 - CS5 & FCP)
    I use both mice daily, both run through batteries quickly. But you can get a month out of a good set of AA's, if not longer.

    Brilliant! (With MagicPrefs)

    • Written by from Cullompton

    Great piece of kit, you get used to it really quickly but i was rather annoyed when i found it had no expose buttons, right up until i found MagicPrefs on the apple download site. It changed the whole mouse and is a must have if you want/have a magic mouse! It gives you full access to the magic mouse's capabilities such as; tap instead of click, 2/3/4 fingered click for expose or any other function you want for that gesture, pinch for zooming in and out and just about and other gesture you can think of for controlling you Mac. And best of all, MagicPrefs is free!
    Great Mouse and software.

    Another amazing product by apple.

    • Written by from West Kirby

    Apple's magic mouse is by far the best mouse I have used with any computer.
    At first I thought it might be hassle with all the fancy multi-touch technology, but it turned it works exceedingly well!

    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!

    Much better than previous offering

    • Written by from Wem

    This is the BEST mouse I have ever used. Having used cheap, expensive, apple, logitech etc. etc. None of them come close to ease, comfort and features.

    Only slight flaw is for your work (InDesign, Photoshop, Excel) to fly away because you just catch the top of the mouse and it scrolls it out of view. I would rather that then not being able to scroll at all which is what happened when the Mighty Mouse 'ball' got dirty and was really difficult to clean.

    Good, but only with a bit of tweaking

    • Written by from Villette (Le Chable)

    Really light touch mouse, brilliant if like me you have carpal tunnel in the mouse click tendon.

    However 2 issues:
    1. You need BetterTouchTool (free download) to make the most of it. I dont know why Apple don't add this to their product
    2. With all the tech available, couldn't a little USB socket be added to it for charging?

    Otherwise I won't be using a normal mouse again any time soon.

    Seriously good

    • Written by from Bristol

    I got the Magic Mouse to use with our 2008 iMac. Its brilliant, scrolling is cool, feels amazing to use, however I would recommend downloading a plug in called Better Touch Tool which really makes the Mouse an outstanding tool. It does take time to learn the taps etc and I would recommend keeping BTT simple, but it allows Expose, spaces etc all from the mouse track easily.

    It would be nice if we could charge the mouse somehow maybe off the Mac and a USB version would be useful (my daughter is liable to run off with an un-teathered mouse) but this is just minor points.

    Overall ... I love it!!!
