    Absolutely brilliant!

    • Written by from Torquay

    After reading some of the other reviews on here, that go from complaints about the battery life to the absurd complaint that the apple mouse is "too flat", I just had to review.

    I only recently became a proper user of Apple products, after spending years using Toshiba/Samsung in my laptops. But a few months ago when my Samsung packed in, I took the plunge and bought a MacBook Pro. I've had no problems with the trackpad that comes built in, but upon finally installing Sims 3 on my Mac, I discovered I would need a proper mouse to play it. After having no success getting my MacBook to read my old PC mouse, I went and bought an Apple Magic Mouse.

    It was easy to connect, found instantly by my Macbook and I absolutely love it! For those complaining that it moves too quickly or is too sensitive, that can be altered in system preferences under mouse and then adjust the tracking bar to the speed that's comfortable to you.

    It is easy to use, comfortable in my hand and feels much more natural than holding a clunky PC mouse, it's smooth, easy to use and great for me. - As an added note, I do have small thin hands, so my palm fits very snugly around the mouse.

    As an avid user of trackpads, I always hated the idea of using a mouse after converting to using a laptop. But this has completely changed my perspective. It's easy to use and I love the easy of scrolling with it. As for the other complaints about the AA batteries not lasting long enough, in my opinion if you can spend out that much money on a mouse, it's fairly straightforward to buy yourself rechargeable AA batteries from a supermarket for £6 that come with a plug in charger and 4-6 batteries so you can always have ones ready to use. That is if you don't want to buy an Apple rechargeable battery/charging dock for it.

    So for anyone who is on the fence, go into an Apple store and try it! But from my experience, definitely buy it. I've tried and tested other brands before ending up with Apple and I cannot fault their quality. Take the plunge and buy one!

    Nice mouse

    • Written by from Bodmin

    Am still getting used to this device but have to say that it is growing on me. Battery life is good but am buying rechargeables so don't have to worry buying new...... Couple of niggles...... when doing 'fine' work, the screen moves up/down without my input.... perhaps it's me and 'fat thumb' syndrome but it's a tad sensitive.....and it could have been designed a bit fatter and rounder to sit in the palm better... But best of all, I don't have to worry about the 'ball' getting furred up and wasting £35 on a new one every 18 months...

    ABSOLUTELY GREAT

    • Written by from Princes risbourough

    This mouse is perfect. I bought this mouse a nearly 2 weeks ago now and it has been great! i don't see what everyone is on about with the battery because I still haven't even used 1 percent yet. All the gestures work perfectly and it they are easy to get used to. I bought this for my MacBook pro Retina display and it is the easiest thing to set up, you just turn the mouse on and the Mac does the rest really.

    A definite buy!

    The perfect mouse!

    • Written by from Wellingborough

    Before purchasing this mouse I read through the reviews, and listened to other peoples opinions; despite majority of them were negative I proceeded to purchase one anyway.

    I find the mouse very comfortable, very easy to use swiping gestures however are difficult to perform, and quite uncomfortable. That said, battery life is still impressive but I suppose i've not really used it long enough to determine this. Set-up took seconds, but for a unix-based os you'd expect this.

    Great Mouse, Works Very Well

    • Written by from Frome

    After reading a lot of the reviews here I'm very confused frankly ...

    I bought mine 3 weeks ago to go with my MacBook Pro. I'm a HEAVY user and with the supplied batteries I still have 93% power left in them and they are NOT high capacity batteries, just a set of standard Enegizer jobbies. I have a fistful of very high 2400ma ones that I'm going to start using with this and they should last for months on end.

    I have several small Logitech wireless mice that I use with my PC and they EAT batteries in comparison to the MagicMouse.

    I have only noticed the mouse disconnect twice in all the time I've been using it so no complaints there either.

    In short I love it, it's VERY functional and works EXACTLY as described

    Best Mouse yet

    • Written by from Malvern

    I tended to be put off by some of the derogatory comments made about this mouse but I've used it for a few days now and I'm very impressed. It is responsive and doesn't move around on the desktop when using the finger swipe surface unlike some other touch sensitive mice I have used. As with all Apple products it does seem expensive but I think worth the extra. The Mobee charger compliments it nicely too.
    I particularly like the Inertia option.
    A nice piece of kit.

    Fantastic!

    • Written by from Manchester

    I love my new mouse! At first, I was a bit skeptical as I'd had bad experiences with wireless mice for PCs and the reviews for this Apple Magic Mouse weren't good (I have no idea why!). It was so easy to install - I just followed the instructions and it took less than 2 minutes, and it was great that I could pick and choose the gestures that i wanted in order to control my mouse. I love the design and it is lightweight and responsive. The battery life is also amazing - I accidentally left it on overnight and it STILL had 98% battery! (This was with standard batteries too, I plan on getting the Apple battery pack soon.) My mum is a brand new Mac user, she borrowed mine and also found it easy to install and use and is planning on getting her own. Another great product from Apple :)

    Great Mouse

    • Written by from Lowestoft

    We have had this mouse now for well over a year and are very happy with it! Once we put some decent batteries into it we have had seamless mousing for months on end. We use the mouse relatively often and have yet to change the batteries from the new ones we put in shortly after buying!

    This is a great Mouse! love it!

    Best mouse I've used

    • Written by from Brighton

    Mine came with my Mac Pro in June and I've become pretty used to it. My initial experience was of jerky and slowish tracking and loss of BT connection but these problems went when the batteries supplied were changed for good rechargeable ones (Uniross Premium Hybrio precharged, if anyone is interested, though I'm sure some other's will be as good), which have lasted for over two months or so without recharging.

    The sensitivity to gestures is very good, although sensitivity to unintended touches can be a bit annoying at times (e.g. sudden changes in page position). Otherwise I've had no problem at all getting used to the light touch needed rather than it fitting into my hand like most other mouses.

    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

    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!

    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.

    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.
