    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!

    Beautiful design, but not ergonomic

    • Written by from Soutsea

    This mouse is nicely made and I really wanted to like it, but I just can't get on with the low deign and the sharp edges. Looks were apparently more important than function in this case. I also find it has a heavy click and has less precise tracking than say a normal Microsoft or Logitech mouse. These days I only use this for travelling as it fits easily in my bag.

    The scrolling feature works very well though, and the 'buttonless' design is comfortable to work with.

    Hopeless for Design App's

    • Written by from AIRDRIE

    Nice feel, certainly better than the previous mouse, although could be too flat for some. The only real major flaw in the design is with creative applications such as InDesign, where the single-finger swipe moves the view around the pasteboard too much and is hyper-sensitive. Would recommend InDesign / CS users stay with scroll-wheel mouse.

    Size Matters

    • Written by from LONDON

    This is a wonderful device and does everything it says on the tin, but I find it too small to fit properly within the palm. It would be wonderful to see it available in more than one size.

    A whole lot of (wrist) pain

    • Written by from Peterborough

    It looks nice, the scrolling is clever and useful but it doesn't right click if you have any other fingers resting on it. Highly irritating.

    The worst thing about this mouse is that after an evening of light usage if gave me severe pains in my hand because it is simply not comfortable to hold. The pain lasted days and i truly believe you could seriously Injure your hand using this mouse.

    Im an apple fan and i even liked the old mighty mouse. This mouse on the other hand is a complete ergonomic failure.

    Google "magic mouse pain". Im not the only one injured by this horrid thing.

    Scrolling and disconnection issues

    • Written by from Alcester

    General usability is superb. Multitouch is superb. Scrolling is superb, but ONLY with Apple software. Other companies programs scrolling functionality ranges from average (Microsoft) to horrendous (Sibelius). Lack of expose is a major loss over the mighty mouse.

    Keeps disconnecting bluetooth connection from my mac. Getting unacceptable to the point where I'm considering returning it. This will make it the 3rd Apple mouse I've got through in 2 years. Which is worryingly bad build quality.

    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!!

    Ouch!

    • Written by from Dartford

    Its a great looking device and I like its use the a browser. However, I've ended up with significant strain in my forearm due to the way you hand is forced to rest when using it.

    I'd say that if you are a heavy user, then look at something else.

    Looks cool as **** but the battery time

    • Written by from Odense M

    Oh man this is a piece of art to say the least, I love this mouse, but oh my God I'll be the sole reason for global warming I change batteries all the time.. But hey apple just made a recharger so np there :)

    5/5 for looks, feel and usability

    1/5 for battery time.. It's just poor as **** really..

    Over all 3/5

    I love apple and all of their products and i adore this mouse but meh can't give more that 3/5 for that battery time..!

    Looks amazing, performs awful

    • Written by from princes risborough

    This mouse looks absolutely stunning and is great for internet browsing with its scroll and other gestures.

    I have had real trouble trying to find a good replacement for it that looks even half as good.

    Reason i am replacing is because for doing anything that needs precision, the tracking is awful. I am a keen video producer and for editing i can not stand using it. And the ergonomics of the mouse.. Absolutely awful, my wrist drags along my desk and my palm can not rest on it because of its very low profile size.

    So for very general and basic use, its nice. But for anything else, i can not recommend.

    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.

    Great, reliable design but erratic during wireless back-ups to Time Capsule

    • Written by from Brighton

    Lack of Expose and Dashboard is a shame (though the keystroke shortcuts mean it's not a tragedy) - and indeed a few more gestures would be great, more like Magic Trackpad, but it's the best mouse I've ever used and unlike others I find the shape very comfortable during many hours use.

    The other big pro is that it's unlikely to suffer from the irritating mouse button and scroll wheel wear/dirt failures that beset most mice (including Apple's Mighty Mouse). My Magic Mouse has performed faultlessly during six months intensive use, day in day out.

    The only real black mark applies to both the Magic Mouse and Magic Trackpad, however - the movement becomes jumpy and imprecise during wireless backups to Time Capsule, making it very irritating to use. Apple really need to get this interference issued resolved.

    As a result I've given it four stars and not five. Otherwise it's excellent - intuitive and a great pleasure to use.
