    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.

    Loved it but didn't last long

    • Written by from Cupertino

    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!)

    Good mouse, too sensitive, batteries fall out too easily

    • Written by from Durham

    As a mouse it works fine. I like the gestures. I find it's too sensitive and I have a lot of accidental "swipes", especially in Illustrator and Excel. I also find that the batteries dislodge too easily inside, so if I pick up the mouse and set it down (like when moving from one extreme of the desktop to another or t my second monitor), they lose connection. This causes the mouse to power off and power on again. I get a lot of disconnections. It was free with the iMac, but I would be upset if I paid $70 for it.

    An Okay Mouse

    • Written by from Farmington hills

    This mouse is functional, as in everything works just fine. It's just that the size of the mouse makes absolutely no sense. The iPhone 5 was created with the design of the human hand in mind, and as a result, it's very comfortable to hold. Sure, the Magic Mouse is very small and sleek and looks cool, but it's uncomfortable to use for a long period of time.

    Comfortable and has great scrolling but...

    • Written by from Edmonton

    ...secondary clicking, i.e. right/left clicking is a fiddle. For me there's not enough differentiation between a straightforward click and a right click. I was forever right clicking when I meant straightforward clicking, so I have gone back to option-key clicking.

    That aside, it fits well in my hand, scrolls well and looks gorgeous.

    needs more gestures

    • Written by from Greenwood

    needs more gestures. needs to be more comfortable in hand. needs to be able to just tap as a click, right now you have to push all the way down and there is that annoying clicking noise it needs to have the option just like the touch pad to either click all the way down or to just tap. other than that great product.

    Lousy Mouse

    • Written by from Ferndale

    I've been using this Magic Mouse since May 2012, didn't have any problems until recently. It constantly disconnects and reconnects this is really annoying and I don't understand why, also it eats batteries (it takes 2) like mad and the battery cover is not that easy to remove. . When I went from a PC to IMAC I had a Logitech mouse and rarely needed to change the battery (1). Does this mouse just wear out or is it a malfunction of the design. I really don't want to pay $60 for a new one after less than 1 year of use.

    For the money it could be better

    • Written by from Cheektowaga

    I've had this mouse for a few years (2009/10). This mouse, as it stands now; is very cumbersome to use; especially if you have to use it for long periods of time. Also; it does go through a ton of batteries.

    I wish Apple would just listen to the customers and make a more user friendly mouse. Magic mouse would be ideal with a few design changes.

    magic mouse could be better

    • Written by from northglenn

    the touch surface is not calibrated well. it is too sensitve and will swipe to another page when you just touch the surface without a swipe. And it eats batteries, I have rechargeable batteries and have to change them out every week. It is an awesome device when there are not touch surface errors. I watched the video, I know the functions, hopefully it is just a calibration issue, I cannot give it 5 stars. 3 stars is very accurate at best, Its great but it has its flaws

    Great mouse -- when it connects

    • Written by from Baltimore

    This is the best mouse I have ever used, when it it is working. It gives you the precision of a mouse with the flow of a touchpad. But all too often it doesn't work, because it has lost its bluetooth connection. And once you get it reconnected (which is usually a slow process) it can disconnect again a little while later. It is hard to find a pattern or a reason for this problem as it comes and goes. The poor bluetooth implementation of this mouse takes it from a 5 star product to a 2.5 star product (I gave it three stars because I am in a good mood).
