    Battery Guzzler

    • Written by from Brighton

    Why oh why isn't there a wired version of this mouse. Lovely to use but battery life is absolutely awful.

    Best mouse on the market

    • Written by from Huddersfield

    I have every type of computer and mouse available, from windows, to macbook to you name it! This mouse is fantastic. Been using it now for nearly a year and not only is is responsive but very efficient on battery usage too. I dont know why people say it is uncomfertable to hold? Honestly, don't listen to these reviews, it is a fantastic mouse.

    You have to get this!

    • Written by from Thames Ditton

    This product is brilliant, so easy to use, really comfortable, I use it at work all day and bring it home to use as it is just so much better than any other mouse.

    The batteries do not last overly long, I would suggest the rechargeable batteries or the charging unit, to reduce the cost of batteries.

    I do however use it for over 80 hours a week so the fact that the batteries don't last isn't a surprise!

    It is quite a different experience to a conventional mouse but after a little adjustment to your mind set you should love it, I would never go back.

    Rubbish- go old skool

    • Written by from high wycombe

    It really hard to work in adobe suites with it, so I have had to switch all of the functionality off. Not only that but it looses connection every 5 mins.

    I have replaced the battery 8 times since Jan in an effort ti resolve the issue, and yes i switch it off.

    If you just a web browser and not a creative professional then the mouse would indeed rock. But if you want to work with this don't bother and get the old faithfuls.

    I extend this as well to the wireless keyboard equally frustrating!!!

    So i have about £100 plus sitting in a cupboard and i am back using the old equipment i luckily hung on to.

    Superb

    • Written by from Worcester Park

    Although rather pricey this is an amazing bit of kit! whilst replacing my allegedly mac compatible ex-pc keyboard mouse combo which was starting to go faulty (again!) This has all the function of a touchpad with the benefit of being a conventional mouse. I wish I had bought this with my mac to start with. It is so easy to set up and after years of being purely on a trackpad a joy to use.

    Useless - constantly loses wireless connection

    • Written by from Teignmouth

    I've had this for 6 months now. I'm absolutely sick of it. It loses the wireless connection several times an hour whenever the mouse is jolted. I have tried all types of different batteries and tried the trick of wedging card in between the batteries to keep the connection. This is a well-known problem with the magic mouse and still no solution. In contrast the trackpad never loses the connection. Sort it out Apple.

    BEST mouse ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Written by from Watford

    This is a wonderful mouse! I used the Magic Mouse that came with my new iMac, and it certainly saves clutter. I used to have a Windows desktop and there were too many wires. Especially the mouse. The wire was far too long. With the Magic Mouse, no wires at all. Well Done Apple!!!

    Not for large desplay.

    • Written by from Galway

    I am running the mouse over a macbook pro 15" with a 24" screen attached, Completely inadequate tracking, too slow to be of any use, even with the tracking at its fastest. I had to download MouseZoom to get any use out of it, this in turn causes waking problems. Great mouse for a small laptop screen. I wish Mac would resolve this problem.

    Must Buy

    • Written by from Desborough

    If you have purchased a Macbook or a iMac, this is a must buy. I use this with my 13inch MacBook Pro, and it is the best mouse I have ever used. It looks smart, it does what you want it to do. Its not hard to set up. Just switch the Bluetooth on and it is connected.

    If you prefer using a mouse to the trackpad on your MacBook, get this mouse. Really quick delivery from Apple as well. Must Buy

    How about a cabled version?

    • Written by from Brobyværk

    It uses batteries way too fast.
    And now it doesn't even work after only 4 months of use.
    Multi scroll and multi finger functions are precise. I just wish I could get a cabled version. I don't feel a short cable connected to my cabled keyboard is too much clutter.
    It makes a lighter mouse, with out the hassle of battery changes.

    LOVE IT!

    • Written by from Woking

    I have recently just switched to Mac, and bought myself a MacBook Pro 13", which i have to say i absolutely love. And i wanted to get myself a mouse, so as there are only 2, and i wanted a wireless one, i chose this one. And let me say, this is the best mouse i have every owned, so sleek and elegant looking, and they way its designed is so clever, with the touchscreen, and all the gestures with it, this is not just a mouse!
    Also i have to mention how quick it is to set up, it took me roughly around 10 seconds for me to open up settings to me connecting it, and i was up and running, no CD's to put in, nothing complicated, just turn it on, go into settings, and connect!
    10/10 must buy!

    I love this mouse and would never use another! Works really smoothly. Only downside is it burns through batteries pretty quickly

    Style over Ergonomics

    • Written by from CLOGHER

    I have this mouse for 6 months now. It works very well with regards to the Bluetooth staying connected, tracking on surfaces, and responsiveness.

    It's let down by the physical design, which looks great, but ends up tiring out your hand. The mouse is too flat, the design also doesn't lend to resting your hand on it, otherwise you set off a click. It's possible to straddle the mouse, with your thumb, ring and little fingers resting on the desk, but that still gets tiring.

    I usually end up switching to the trackpad on my MBP every so often when I can get away with just using gestures, as that exercises my hand and reduces the strain built up using the mouse.

    Well worth it

    • Written by from Durham

    After long last I got a magic mouse today. It took a couple of minutes to connect to the mac and then that was it. As it has a completely different feel and shape to conventional mice it did take a while to get use to it in general. I found that i needed to increase the tracking speed to fast, but this might be for the speed I'm used too. The fact that it also recognise some finger gestures is excellent!

    Definitely a must have for any mac user, it makes an already wonderful computer experience that bit better.

    If you still prefer to click!

    • Written by from Bournemouth

    Despite some of the bad reviews, I went ahead and bought the magic mouse on the basis that I still prefer to hold, move and click something solid!

    I guess if you're used to the trackpads of laptops then the trackpad will be more suitable, but if like me you love to click then this is an awesome product.

    It feels real nice to hold (it's not designed to hug to your palm as your palm sits in a curved state naturally, instead just the tips of your fingers and the base of your palm rest on it's super smooth surface)

    The gestures are valuable in Lion, I'm still quite new to the mac so still learning little tricks but since getting the magic mouse i've used functions not used before because they become so simple! (i'm guessing the same for trackpad on this one too)

    The laser and bluetooth combination too make for seamless function. easy to set up and no jerkiness in the cursor movement unlike my previous mouse that used a USB dongle to connect kept sticking and freezing.

    Conclusion, an essential apple product (unless you like to point the cursor with your finger, then get the trackpad), worth every penny in comparison to previous models.

    very good for a mouse

    • Written by from Essex

    I've just got this mouse with my new Mac Pro and to my surprise it's not to shabby.
    The usual type up set up for a Mac. It was so quick and easy to set up you didn't even know you were doing it until it was done all of less than a min.
    Great job Apple.
    I'm now waiting for a new magic track pad and the charger for my new mouse.
    I'm such an apple fan.

    Great Device

    • Written by from GLASGOW

    The glass feels great on your fingers. Battery life is great roughly 1 month for me but may be different depending on how much you use it. Not as many multi touch features as the Magic Trackpad. Over all good device at a fair price.

    Worst. Mouse. Ever.

    • Written by from Sheffield

    If you are going to buy an iMac, take my advice... get the trackpad, NOT the magic mouse...

    For me, there is NO comfortable way to hold this mouse and I have tried many different ways. It is not ergonomic in the slightest. The movement of the pointer on the screen is far from acceptable when using it.

    The one thing I do like about it is the gesture support; very intuitive and useful, but you might as well get the trackpad which is more accurate, comfortable and (at the moment) features more gestures.

    If you don't like the trackpad then I would suggest any other standard mouse. If you buy this there's a fair chance your fingers will be aching from the constant attempts to hold this mouse comfortably.

    Steer clear and get the magic trackpad instead!
