    Eh

    • Written by from Coram

    Does the job, but KILLS the battery life, I go through at least one set a month.
    Plus, it's really annoying that it doesn't have a right click.

    Imprecise, otherwise great

    • Written by from Minocqua

    Must say I like the mouse, that's why it gets three stars. It's terrific for most purposes though it takes a little while to get used to. I really like being able to customize its functions.

    That all said, I work in a design job that requires precision. If something must by 8x10.75 inches, it can't be 7.998x10.741 inches, but the latter is what I get from the Magic Mouse … or something else close, but not exact.

    So, when working on design, I plug in my corded Mac Mouse and I'm back to precise design. When working on anything else, I use the Magic Mouse. Sorry, Apple, love your products, but some refinement is in order for your Magic Mouse.

    Needs to rechargeable

    • Written by from Philadelphia

    Seriously $70 for mouse and it still uses AA batteries?? I'm tired of buying batteries for this mouse. Make the next version rechargeable.

    Good, but it get me crazy disconnecting by itself

    • Written by from Sanford

    The functionality of the mouse if good, easy to use and practicable.
    The down side of it, is that the battery life is poor and for some reason it disconnects a lot during use.
    For the price charged, in my opinion I wouldn't like to experience problems with it.

    Needs to be more ergonomic

    • Written by from Mississauga

    I love this mouse, i really do. From the smooth scrolling to the precise pointing.
    However, I am also a frequent computer user. Although the mouse looks really nice, it absolutely needs to be more ergonomic. My hands would hurt after an hour of using it. I would love to see a change in form factor in the next version of this mouse.

    The aluminum part from the bottom of the mouse peels off.

    • Written by from missoula

    I've been only using this mouse less than half year so far, but I've already got the color from the aluminum has been worn out really bad. The parts that are usually contacted by my fingers turned into black! First time when I purchased this sleek looking mouse, I had instinctively thought it should be just like iPhone 5's metal part, but It looks like they processed it differently... Color from the bottom of the mouse wears off so easily.

    Disconnects by the slightest bump

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    The mouse disconnects by the slightest bump. I've tried both normal batteries and the inductive batterypack; both has the same problem. So now I have a wired mouse next to it so I can quickly go to a terminal and run "blueutil off" followed by "blueutil on".

    If I were Apple, I'd solder a reasonably sized capacitor in parallel with the batteries. I looked at the dissection at ifixedit and concluded I would not manage to get it back in one piece if i tried this myself.

    So why three stars and not one? Because when it works it's totally brilliant and I feel handicapped when it's discharged or if I forget it somewhere. Programmed gestures to switch virtual desktop is alone worth its price.

    Can get very annoying

    • Written by from la puente

    Sometimes the right click doesn't work and if you are using After Effects or Premiere, prepare to get annoyed with the random zooming. This mouse is perfect for browsing back and forth between web pages because of its swipe feature.

    Annoying

    • Written by from Bedford

    I've had this mouse for over a year now, ever since I bought my iMac. It's a cool mouse, cool functions but every now and then Ill move my hand away barely touching the mouse and it'll move my whole screen. Thats not even the annoying part. The mouse constantly disconnects from my computer when Im using it, full batteries and everything. I have to sit here clicking away until it reconnects, it happens all the time. Sorry Apple, I'll be getting a new mouse with better bluetooth capabilities.

    Better for desktops.

    • Written by from Racine

    This mouse is pretty awesome, I haven't had any trouble with it really, but for a company that prides itself on good design, this has a catch or two.

    I see other reviewers have complained about the comfort, and I agree with that. I also saw someone say something about getting rid of the mouse mat, and indeed this is also true from experience. I find that a solid plain wooden desk or table works best, doesn't seem to leave scratches or anything. That said, if you have any Macbook, I wouldn't bother buying this. If you're on the go and rarely sitting at a proper table or desk (me), you will probably grow to hate it quickly. It's impossible to find good surfaces to use, and pert near impossible to 'palm' this mouse-- move it by squeezing your palm around the edges and picking it up. That's a comfort issue as well. If I were to buy an iMac, yes, I would love to have it. And I would recommend it. But it's also true that Apple's trackpads are without equal, they are just not quite good enough for gaming. It just seems a tad redundant to have a Magic Trackpad alongside a Macbook.

    I would recommend Logitech's M570 wireless trackball to pair with the Macbook, they are wonderful! But as Macbooks only have TWO USB PORTS, it's something of a pain if you leave the receiver in at all times. And it smacks of dirty pool, basically goading people into using bluetooth for distance interfacing, mice and keyboards which have poorer battery life and signal strength than standard 2.4ghz wireless. Just awful. Is it really so much to ask for just ONE more USB in Macbooks??

    Apple, you guys are awesome, but sometimes "forward thinking" does not do a lick of good for the here and now!

    Great start to what could be my favorite mouse

    • Written by from Vancouver

    First off I see a lot of reviews about how bad it tracks. That is the one thing it does superior to any mouse I've ever used. The trick for me was to throw away the mouse pad and just use it directly on my desk. Then it is very precise, fluid and responsive. The vertical scrolling is very smooth and linear. First bad thing is battery life. I wanted to say more but I'm tired of seeing the red message saying some of my words cannot be published. I've edited until I'm blue in the face and used two programs to make sure I'm under 300 words. A little more feedback on what words or a word counter would be helpful.

    Magical yes, but frustratingly inconsistent

    • Written by from Quincy

    It's an amazing mouse, when it works OK, which is 95% of the time. But when you run out of battery power (and if you don't have extra AAs around), or when the Bluetooth connection fails for some reason or just takes a few moments to be recognized, you remember how very, VERY essential a mouse is to doing anything on your computer, and it leaves you feeling powerless and absolutely infuriated.

    I came online looking for a corded version (because honestly, a 12-inch cord is not all that intrusive, Apple), and they don't even make one. The touch trackpad has ruined me for all other mice; I mean, you just can't go back. Those wheely scrolls on PC mice are a joke (and of course the tiny scrolly ball that the old mighty mouse had would always jam or break on me after a few months, so that's no better). But I can't take the inconsistency anymore.

    Painful Edges

    • Written by from Tulsa

    I'm an art director, so I use Photoshop.... A lot. Since it requires constant mouse use for making paths and selections, the sharp edges on the sides begin to cut into the side of my finger. I had to switch back to the previous, more rounded version of the mighty mouse. I love the design, but they should taper the corners a bit more

    CONNECTION

    • Written by from Waterloo

    All functions are awesome and very comfortable. However, connection is lost very often. When battery is about 50%, you will probably suffer of misconnection every 10 minutes.

    Love/hate for Magic Mouse

    • Written by from Chattanooga

    I have 2 Magic mice, 1 for a Mac and 1 for a MacBook, and both behave and misbehave the same. They are sleek and work well much of the time. The wireless is especially nice. They have some ruggedness, as I dropped one with no consequences. However, both lose connection to the computer regularly and are suddenly unresponsive at other times. These episodes of misbehavior seem to be getting more frequent with time. Also, the mice are too sensitive at times. Lastly, the small metal plate on the underside simply won't stay attached. Overall, the Magic Mouse is a great idea, but needs some re-engineering to be more reliable.

    I had this mouse for about a year and a half when it just stopped working. I really liked it -- great ergonomic feel and intuitive to use. But not sure I'd pay $69 for another one.

    Crazy Zoom??

    • Written by from Medina

    The swipe is great. The multi button is great. The scroll zoom is HORRIBLE!

    I use Cinema 4D and other 3D modeling as well as a lot of Adobe products. This mouse loves to zoom to infinite levels in a project if you so much as look at it wrong.

    If that "flick scroll, infinite zoom" thing can be fixed, it would be an easy 5 stars.......but because it is SO annoying, only 3 stars ( and that is generous!)
