    Battery Killer

    • Written by from Placentia

    This thing burns through batteries like a sailor on shore leave guzzles beer. Much faster than competing products. Just say no.

    Don't buy a Magic Mouse!

    • Written by from Berkeley

    I have no idea why it is that Apple can be such a pioneer in technology, and yet they can't make a decent mouse. From the moment I bought it, it was jumpy and difficult to use, and the touch surface stopped working after about 2 months. Next time, I'm definitely going to get the wireless trackpad.

    frustrating, don't buy!

    • Written by from Brampton

    I really dislike this mouse. It has very finicky touch detection. There are two major things that I've noticed: It constantly does not detect when I want to right click. More frustratingly, the touch interface which allows you to scroll constantly thinks I am trying to go to the previous page (when using the web), which has resulted in me loosing text I have entered in web pages.

    I do not recommend.

    Great, if it weren't an ergonomic disaster.

    • Written by from Chicago

    Perhaps one day apple will make a mouse with any regard for user comfort, but it hasn't happened yet. Multitouch is nice, but I found this mouse to be totally unusable for serious work. My hands cramp up after about 10 minutes, and I don't have particularly large hands. I ditched this mouse and bought a logitech performance mouse, which is great. If you need multitouch gestures, the magic trackpad is a vastly better option.

    Much trouble with mouse

    • Written by from Owensboro

    I really dislike the "magic mouse," as it's been nothing but trouble since I got my iMac back in January 2011. The crux of the problem is that there are some kind of sensors on the mouse which frequently malfunction. For example, I will be on one webpage and suddenly, the previous web page will pop up. Not a big problem you think. What about when you've just finished your daily blog, and you're going to post with the mouse, and this happens. Then, it's not such a small thing. And, there is no going back to what was being written on the previous page. Somehow (?) that page no longer exists. In fact, I will be surprised if I can really post this review given the plethora of problems I've had with this particular mouse. Another major problem I have is with Google maps and Mapquest. I am a geography buff, and there is absolutely no rhyme or reason when my hand is on the mouse if the map will enlarge or move as directed. I've tried placing my hand on different places on the mouse, but that experiment was fruitless. There is no logic to my seemingly illogical mouse. Maybe the problem is with this particular mouse, but suffice to say, I will never buy another "magic mouse."

    Failed to meet expectations

    • Written by from Bonn

    I am a huge Apple fan. MacBook Pro, IPAD 2, IPOD, IPOD nano, Mac Wireless Keyboard,... I have it all!

    I have been loyal to Logitech mouses for years. I had several models, including the VX, and since I got the Performance MX I stopped looking any further. Simply the best mouse!

    Ergonomics are just PERFECT and it recharges the AA battery via USB cable when necessary. Only point against is that it does not connect directly to the MacBook bluetooth and requires the USB wireless dongle. For this reason, and for the functionalities advertised, I decided to try the Apple Magic Mouse. Veredict: HORRIBLE! The multi touch is of course nice, but the ergonomics are a total FAILURE! I felt wrist strain after the first 20 min! Also, the speed is quite slow, even configured as maximum on the mouse settings. I return it and I am back at the Logitech.

    Best luck for Apple R&D to beat the Logitech Perfomance MX!

    Terrible! NOT FOR PROFESSIONAL USE!

    • Written by from NEW YORK

    ONE OF WOST APPLE PRODUCT EVER BOUGHT.
    IT SEEMS LIKE APPLE PRODUCTS QUALITY IS GOING DOWN EVEN THOUGH THEIR SALES IS GOING UP SO HIGH!
    Design is Futuristic and Tech sounds Incredible, But Forget to use this one!
    Very difficult to move it around, and not accurate.
    Especially Definitely not for Design, Music, Videos Production work or Any Professional Use.
    It will slip all around, and you will make mistakes all over. takes more time.
    Also Battery dies very fast, even the most expensive Duracell, It doesn't really matter.
    All Professionals should get an regular Apple mouse for Professional use.
    NOT FOR PROFESSIONAL USE!!!

    Sleek and elegant but very painful to use: horrible ergonomics

    • Written by from Appleton

    At first I liked this mouse because of its nice swiping functionality. But after a week I had to give up: my arm and wrist hurt too much.

    Use of the Magic Mouse forces an unnatural thumb-downward twist in the forearm, which induces stress and pain in the forearm/wrist after even a short time.

    Too touchy

    • Written by from Morgantown

    I usually like Mac/Apple products, but this mouse is just plain frustrating. It looks nice, but that's about it. It's too sensitive/touchy. Even after several months of use, I'm not used to it. I still end up clicking things I don't mean to click and can't control the scrolling properly. And my mac will never respond to it to wake up, which means needing something wired in addition to the wireless mouse. Plus, I desperately miss the functionality of the additional buttons the mighty mouse had. The options in system preferences are very limited for adjusting the functions of this mouse. And, in terms of ergonomics, well, it has none. It's really not comfortable to use for a long time. Overall, I'm ready to throw this mouse out the window and get a cheap one with buttons and a normal scroll wheel.

    Not what I expected

    • Written by from Roswell

    I expected the best but have found this mouse to be heavy (awkward in trying to move quickly for games) with a very short battery life. It had a very slow resolution (had to pick up the mouse a couple of times to move across a page until I found a program that made it more responsive). Now that's better but miss my light, fast Microsoft optical mouse that I had before switching to Mac. Will try to find something better. Have had my IMac for just over a month and the batteries on my mouse already need replacing. That's too short for a moderate user.

    getting it to work is a magic trick

    • Written by from Lakewood

    This mouse sounded like a good idea (I love the mutitouch pad on my MBP 13 inch). When using this mouse, the cursor skips all over the screen, even after buying a new mousepad. After 1 week of owning it, it has also started to literally come apart at the seams. Went back to my cheap $30 Logitech notebook mouse after I was close to throwing the magic mouse up against a wall. Cheap mouse works ten times better.

    Does not work

    • Written by from Fairport

    The mouse was great starting off, but as time went on I lost my connection. It won't even connect to my imac anymore, so I can't even use it! I had to switch to a microsoft mouse that I had. I only had the mouse and the computer for little over a week, so I am disappointed in the operation of the mouse. Do not buy this mouse

    Beyond the sleek appearance...Magic Mouse is aggravation

    • Written by

    Magic Mouse has great looks and is very trick and fun to play with. Initially, it is most impressive! You must decide though...do you want sleek and fun...or do you want a mouse that can be productive? I have had the Magic Mouse for 6 months and I want to throw it against a wall several times everyday! Ergonomically, the shape is unnatural and wrong...the hand does not rest on this mouse the way it does on nearly every other mouse ever made. Because of its shape, Magic Mouse tends to get sideways in the hand...at which point, what you think is a left click is a right click and what you think is a swipe is a scroll, etc, etc. In no way does form does not follow function with Magic Mouse. I am sure you've already read how Magic Mouse eats batteries and how, in some applications, scrolling/zooming is absolutely BERSERK...true and true. Has Apple ever made a really decent, reliable mouse? Logitech does!

    Looks great, functions well, but disappoints

    • Written by from Portland

    Wanted to love this mouse but it's really hard to. It looks great. I'm not adverse to the ergonomics of it, but the more I use it the more disappointing it becomes. The problem lies with the two black rails. Firstly they are magnets for dirt / dust which translates into an grinding noise and feel when using it. Biggest problem though is the rails are actually discoloring my desk and leave a black coloration on my hand. Kind of like graphite from a pencil. It's so bad I've reverted back to mighty mouse. Very disappointing.

    Magic Mouse - Bad Tracking

    • Written by from Brier

    Overall tracking is bad. Mouse tracks poorly on many surfaces with both the universal access tracking speed and the mouse tracking speed both set to the fastest levels. It is noise too as the tracks on the bottom of the mouse scrape across whatever surface it is on. I will be returning it tomorrow.

    Worst Product Apple Makes

    • Written by from Walnut Cove

    This mouse works nicely...when it works. The bluetooth connection drops constantly, I literally have to reconnect it 5 times or more with less than 10 minutes of use. I tried looking to online forums for help, with suggestions ranging from "adding foil between batteries" to "don't move it too much". This is simply a terrible design flaw. I bought a $12 USB mouse and have had no issues with it at all. I would never recommend this product.

    Amazing...if it's working

    • Written by from Carlsbad

    Multi touch features are obviously incredible and it's a pleasure to use. However, if you use it for about a year it just stops working. It seems to be made cheaply and I would really expect a lot more from an apple product. This mouse is a great idea but it is built at a quality worth half of what they are selling it for. Unless you are willing to replace this mouse annually, get a different one.
