    For the price should be better than this

    • Written by from HILTON

    Connected, disconnected. Jerky, unresponsive, disconnected, connected, disconnected, disconnected, ...

    When paying 60 quid for a mouse you'd expect to get something that actually works reliably. The battery compartment is badly designed and the batteries seem loose all the time. The bottom battery cover also falls off every time I smash the thing against the desk in frustration.

    Not worth the cash...

    • Written by from NORTHAMPTON

    The Magic Mouse is a great product in novelty terms, but the robustness and longevity of use is poor. I have had my mouse for several years and regularly had issues with bluetooth disconnect. Finally I got so frustrated with the disconnect every 20 seconds, followed by a period of 2 secs of no connection, then a reconnect that I have completely stopped using the product. Apple support advised that once the one year warranty was up there was nothing they could do that wouldn't come at a cost... I expect a mouse to last for several years when it comes with a £59 price tag... I would be better off with a £5 USB.

    Terrible

    • Written by from Newtown

    Get the mouse, used it for 2 minutes. Put it back in the ox and returned it to Apple the same day. Its sticky to use when trying the gestures and doesn't fit in the hand properly. Its really awkward to use. The trackpad is so much better.

    completely useless

    • Written by from Telford

    Its heavy, BIG and cumbersome. It does not like any surface and lets you feel all the bumps on whatever surface you run it over. Its loud as it scrapes across most surfaces, unless you use a mouse mat in which case the mouse is so heavy it just moves the mouse mat underneath. And the worst feature is that you just cant move the cursor with any accuracy. You need to set the mouse speed to max which is still to slow and if you try to make small movements quickly it tracks extremely slow. When you start your mac or open from sleep it takes forever to find the mouse before it connects. Oh and the price is stupid.

    I returned this mouse

    • Written by from Belfast

    This mouse looks very pretty, but 1) it's too flat so makes my hand ache 2) it's not as precise as a generic mouse so one spends much time trying to get the pointer exactly above say a small button, 3) owing to the touch feature, all kinds of unexpected events take place once you move your fingers by just a wee bit while moving the mouse around (on linux/KDE), and 4) given its high price I would not have expected points 1-3 to happen.

    Rather infuriating - too clever for itself

    • Written by from Ampthill

    I have had this for some years and increasingly dislike it. It cannot be customised to stop jumping between windows, and it does it incontinently. Touch the wretched the thing and I find myself staring at something I don't want to be working on. Really poor for things like photo editing which require a lot of mouse use - it's a complete waste of time when it jumps to a new screen. I have a magic trackpad which I use mostly to get back to the window I want to be on.

    FANTASTIC!!!

    • Written by from London

    After having used the mouse for an year I can easily say that it's awesome!!
    At the beginning I was skeptical and really used to the trackpad that I loved, but now I cannot work without it!!!

    Great functionality - if it didn't keep disconnecting

    • Written by from London

    I love this mouse but they have to fix the battery compartment - every little knock or pick up of the mouse disconnects it and then I have to wait to reconnect again - it makes working with it over longer periods really frustrating!

    Not what I was expecting.. But surprisingly awesome.

    • Written by from Bromley

    I've had this mouse a few days now and needless to say it performs wonderfully. As always with Apple it looks great and even 'works on my Levis'.

    Having said this I think its design lets it down somewhat. Apart from the lovely float and appropriate weight it felt as if there was something missing, it suddenly hit me, it's a bit too shallow for my liking. Yet I also think this is a conscious design choice they way I'm holding the mouse is much less stressful, instead of completely gripping a conventional mouse its sort of 'floats' between my thumb and ring and little finger. This essentially puts your hand in a naturally relaxed state where again it 'floats' within your hand rather than you naturally gripping onto it.

    All in all its a great design, more than adequate feel, and the gesture support is quite simply very useful. Finally not only does it 'work on my Levis' is fits in the skinny pocket too so its great for blocking out cursor movement during a presentation and just clicking my pocket for the next animation/slide.

    battery life is major let down

    • Written by from london

    Requires replacement batteries all the time, not the most comfortable to use for long periods either.... but has good functionality within the MAC OS... not best for boot camp systems or CAD use as well.

    Why would you want anything else?

    • Written by from Buncrana

    Fantastic mouse. It can be set up as complicated or as simple as you wish. I do not understand the poor reviews on here. My only thought; you must have bought a dud or a copy.
    I was a little unsure considering the price but its well worth it. Buy it.

    Great Mouse

    • Written by from Birmingham

    This mouse is a difficult mouse to get used to. It took me about 2 days to grasp its full potential as it was so different to what I was used to using. But alas, once I finally mastered it, I have not used another mouse since. Its battery life is fantastic and frankly, it is one of the best mouses I have ever used. As I said. It is a difficult mouse to master but trust me, just be patient. It is well worth it and you won't be disappointed!

    Good buy

    • Written by from Ystradgynlais

    Bought one along with an Apple wireless keyboard for use with my Mac Mini. Mouse is sleek and good looking and easy to use. You can customise the functions, I just have right and left click and scroll, but other options are available in settings. Personally I find that things are lot smoother than they were with my generic USB mouse.

    Give it time!

    • Written by from Louth

    Be patient with getting to know how the mouse works, it will soon become the best mouse you've ever used! Flawless design that lets you do more than enough using simple gestures. Battery life did become a bit of a pain but i soon fixed that by using a magic charger or Apple rechargeable batteries.

    Remember its like buying your first Mac again, at first you don't know how anything worked, but it soon became the best decision of your life!

    Peace!

    Perfect mouse for left handers

    • Written by from Ealing

    Actually I'm ambidextrous and like to share the use between left and right hand to avoid arm strain. I found this Mouse a little strange at first but quickly got used to it. This Mouse is perfect because I don't have to make any adjustments other than to move the mouse from the left to right hand side. No complaints at all.

    Excellent!

    • Written by from Bromley

    Me and my wife we are using magic mouses for a year.
    We are using them to work at home, not for gaming.
    There is no better mouse to work! Gestures are great addition to basic functionality.
    Battery life is ok for us. I know that some people complains on short battery life, but years ago i was using logitech air mouse and in logitech one full charging gives only 4 days of working. So apple's one is not so bad as other people are writing :)

    5 starts from me!

    Excellent

    • Written by from Cramlington

    Brilliant, very accurate, very comfortable, very configurable. Last week I replaced my recently-deceased PC with a Mac and got the wireless magic mouse included. I am used to an expensive (UK £100 or thereabouts) Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse on the PC. The mouse in my PC system had separate buttons for forward, back, open browser, zoom +/-, scroll, left click, right click, etc. including a scroll wheel with a left and right nudge function. It took ages to get to grips with all the buttons on the Logitech, but I did eventually love it, and I thought I couldn't live without it when it died along with my PC. But after a week or so, in my opinion, the Apple mouse feels way more intuitive, way cleverer, and way prettier of course. And does everything the expensive Logitech did, and I think more, but with less visible buttons etc.. And seems more accurate, to me. And I learnt how to use it seamlessly, intuitively, quickly, efficiently, without thinking, within a couple of days. IMHO Anyone who tells you this isn't a great useable device is probably a mac-hater here to diss Apple in favour of some cr*ppy pc. I, on the other hand, will never ever go back.
