    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.

    Constantly disconnecting

    • Written by from Lewisham

    I have had problems since I got it. It's fine when it works but it stops working at 10% battery & has had trouble connecting since I got it out of the box.

    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.

    constanlty mucks up!

    • Written by from kailua kona

    60% of the time that I hit on the mouse, left,front,back,center etc, during a game or using for everyday click, it RIGHT clicks and opens up Options instead of doing what it should. I despise this mouse but it was included in my newest iMac purchase and the mouse is pure rubbish.

    Would rather have a wired mouse

    • Written by from Huntington Beach

    Mouse came with new iMac. I think the battery life stinks. Also the sensitivity is bad, it seems that if there is just a bit of dirt or dust on the surface it doesn't perform as it should. The wife hates the scroll and won't even use her fingers on it because it's too sensitive for her. Basically a failure in my opinion.

    Worst Mouse Ever!

    • Written by from Portland

    This mouse should be a recall for everyone that purchased it!
    Batteries last about 5-6 days
    Constantly loses bluetooth connection sometimes like
    today probably 8 times.

    Soon! Taking out to trash

    AWFULL PRODUCT!! would give it zero stars if that was possible....

    • Written by from HILO

    My trusty old mouse won't work with Lion (don't get me started on what I think about Lion or icloud!!) and now I have arthritis in my thumb from this stupid thing. There is no support for the entire hand -- and I have really small hands. I agree with a reviewer that I read online: Apple products are now no better than PC so why am I spending the extra $$$? I plan to make a slow switch over time. It's just not worth it any more.

    An ergonomic DISASTER

    • Written by from New Orleans

    I love this mouse. The multi-touch scrolling is awesome... but I hate this mouse! It's too flat and puts the hand in an uncomfortable position. I experience wrist pain when using for several hours. Unfortunately, there is nothing else on the market that fills the void, so I've been using my old USB mighty mouse lately, only because it is a more comfortable shape. Another thing with regards to ergonomics; why can't there be a wired version? Pushing around batteries all day long puts unnecessary strain on the wrist; a battery free mouse is so much lighter.

    Lost connections

    • Written by from Jersey City

    I keep losing connectivity with the magic mouse. It seems to be a battery problem in that changing the batteries always restores the connection. However, this seems to be happening more frequently--every month now (I've had the computer and the mouse for a year). I've decided to give up and buy a conventional mouse.

    Looks nice but don't use it at work

    • Written by from Hornsby

    Sadly, this mouse is triumph of form over function. Looks great, but is such a piece of junk, at least in an office environment where other Bluetooth devices may be operating nearby.

    I had to replace the batteries every 4-5 weeks, even when I switched it off before going home at night.

    Even on nearly new batteries, several times a day it would lose the Bluetooth connection to the iMac just a foot away. (The stock iMac keyboard is nearly as bad as the mouse in this respect.)

    If Apple made a wired version I would consider it, but wireless is a waste of money.

    Ugh

    • Written by from Huntington

    This mouse loses its connection to the computer in the middle of any task. It happens every day, usually several times, and requires a reboot to reestablish the connection. It often loses the connection after a period of "sleep" and again, requires a reboot. MOST ANNOYING !! Don't throw your wired mouse away!!!

    Awful

    • Written by from Charlestown

    This mouse is uncomfortable in the hand and causes involuntary navigation back and forward - a lot. If your surface has bumps it will switch off the mouse while moving and it takes quite a while to reconnect. I would have been better off with a $10 mouse.

    the sliders disintegrate

    • Written by from Aurora

    This mouse is fair, except the sliders disintegrate over time and with use. The metal piece that covers the batters now slides on the desk from time to time.

    No

    • Written by from Marco Island

    This mouse is horrible. Doesn't even touch your hand, can't move fast and HORRIBLE for any game that requires quick precise movements. Would not recommend to anyone.

    Great until it's not!

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    I have this mouse and it worked ok for a few months. But now even after I change the batteries for a new pair it still won't connect sometimes. I hate having to restart my computer because of this stupid blue tooth mouse! And changing batteries in your mouse all the time is stupid. For now I'm using a cheapy corded mouse, and it's so far more reliable, although not touch sensitive.

    I'll take an ugly one that works over a pretty one that doesn't.

    Try before you buy!

    • Written by from Boulder

    If you live near and Apple store it might be worth your while to give it a test drive. I was seriously considering this mouse so I went to my local Apple dealer and spent 30 minutes with the mouse. That was enough to convince me I didn't want it. I may be beautiful to look at, but ergonomically it is not comfortable to use. In particular I couldn't get used to the sharp edges. I have an Iogear bluetooth mouse that works just as well and is much more comfortable.

    My guess is that Apple will eventually come out with a redesign. I'll wait till they do.

    Too Sensitive for Indesign

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    I got so frustrated using this mouse with Indesign that I ended-up throwing it on the floor and plugging in my previous mouse. This "Magic Mouse" may be good for web browsing, but not for page layout and design work.

    Aesthetics over Usability - Disappointing performance and ergonomics

    • Written by from Zurich

    I paid 100 dollars as I bought mine in the Zurich apple store, for that kind of money the expectation is high. I use my computer all day working as a graphic designer and this mouse seriously slows me down and also causes me pain in my hand and wrist.

    The scrolling is too sensitive in the adobe programs and jumps around the pages at the slightest touch, this considerably slows me down.

    With the ergonomics the mouse is too flat and does not support the hand, i.e you can not rest your hand or fingers on the mouse. The sharp edges also are not nice to hold. I think it looks great but most of the time I am near it, it is hidden under my ugly hand.

    Performance-wise it takes ages to connect with bluetooth and I usually have to go into the preferences to get it to pair with my laptop. Battery consumption is also high.

    Im using my old mighty USB one now to work, as magic mouse is only good for browsing web pages for short periods.

    design=YES; ergonomic=NO; right button=NO

    • Written by from Göteborg

    I'm working with Mac more than 15 years. I never liked any type of Apple Mouse. I thought it could change with the new Magic Mouse. But unfortunately the design is not worth the bad ergonomic holding and especially not the bad function of the right mouse-button.

    So if you need the right mouse-button very often, then please don't buy this mouse. Unless Apple corrects the function...

    Connections Problems = Headache

    • Written by from Ocala

    Let me first say that, yes, the scrolling is revolutionary. Very helpful knowing that the non-existent trackball won't suddenly stop working due to over-use or dust collection.
    Having said that, i have never been so frustrated with a mac item, let alone a mouse. Aside from the fact that bluetooth drains the battery (a minor problem) the mouse has an extremely difficult time connecting to my Macbook. I'm a big gamer, to have my mouse suddenly and inexplicably disconnect mid-game is abhorrent. Upon starting up the laptop, it is a contest between turning on/off the mouse and on/off with the bluetooth on my computer until, finally, it connects (in hopes it won't disconnect). Quite frankly, i'd rather take up a USB port than deal with this annoying bluetooth feature. For a mac item to work this inconsistently, it is disgusting and disappointing. I love mac, but this mouse is a pain in my behind.
