    It Just Works

    I have had no problems with my magic mouse. As a first time Apple user, I'm impressed with it's functionality.

    Great mouse, but

    • Written by from Deerfield Beach

    I own a magic mouse since the first day it became available. I love this mouse, but now after using it 10+ hours a day the body of the mouse (made out of plastic) started to deteriorate. What I would like to see improved is an option to disable the scrolling in certain application (like Adobe Suite) and the side edges of the mouse a bit rounded, because after a while I fell the edges cutting my fingers.

    a well mouse indeed

    • Written by from Natick

    The mouse might feel awkward at first and maybe you'd have to reorient your hand a little to scroll, but eventually you get used to it and it's fantastic. The multitouch looked impressive and was very useful, I can turn pages simply by swiping two fingers, and the fact that it can sense where your clicking on the mouse is great. I did have some trouble with it though, as sometimes it would not respond, and where I need to press both sides at once, the magic mouse does not pick up. Tracking is good yet I found it to be pretty slow, I had to set the tracking speed to maximum sensitivity, which would be way to sensitive if I were to use my other mouse. Yet thats a minor fault, as i'm not so lazy to go to preferences to change the tracking speed if I want to use the other mouse. furthermore, despite having multitouch capabilities, the mouse is very efficient in battery consumption, i would only have to replace the batteries about each month, give or take. If connection is lost it would take a long time to regain it and you'd have to click the button a few times for your mac to recognize it and that could be annoying.

    Overall it's a great product although I would like to see some improvements as well as enhanced multitouch capapbilities.

    Good

    • Written by from Louisville

    Got this to replace a piece of junk Microsoft scrollwheel mouse. The 360 scrolling action is great and much nicer to use. Feels a bit flat in my hand, but that doesn't really bother me. The only thing that can sometimes be annoying is when the side of my hand or finger brushes against the surface and causes an accidental scroll. If you're going to rest your hand on the mouse you have to keep it still and not wiggle or tap any fingers. So far I have not had any bluetooth connection problems with my iMac.

    Amazing mouse

    • Written by from Raytown

    This mouse is absolutely perfect. It goes above and beyond any regular mouse today.
    Its only downfall is its quite Thirsty. I have to change batteries often. And its pretty sensitive.

    Overall i would recommend someone to get it.

    "DOLLAR STORE"

    • Written by from providence

    The mouse is very good I love it...But the down side is the battery consumption, it consume a lot of battery, if you could go to the Dollar store and get a carton of AA battery you will be all set...

    Too flat

    • Written by from River Vale

    Unlike others, I have no real probelms with tracking, accuracy, reliability, stiff or heavy feel on various surfaces, etc. It works pretty well. Yes, I'll admit the battery life could be better, but I use rechargeables and I expect them to discharge more quickly. However, I don't care because they're rechargeable. I also love the other Apple-specific features of this mouse such as the two-fingered swipes, etc.

    The only issue I have with this mouse is that its profile is too flat. By this I mean that it sits quite low on the desk/table. When I place my hand over it to slide it or click, my hand is nearly flat. This makes the process of clicking seem a little awkward, it makes it a little harder to control feels ergonomically incorrect. If you are accustomed to cupping your hand over a mouse that has a little more height, this one will feel strange and a little bit uncomfortable.

    So, overall, I like the mouse. I do not plan to replace it. I just wish it had a higher hump in the middle.

    Excellent Mouse

    • Written by from Kaysville

    This mouse is great. It is comfortable to use, the scrolling is amazing. I love it. But the battery life is a joke. Im lucky to get a month on 2 batteries! Other mice I've had have gone 6 times that, and they only use 1 battery. The multitouch is great, but the battery life is horrendous. And the price is a little high for a mouse.

    Great

    • Written by from Rutland

    This mouse is one of the best i've used. It feels very natural, and the scrolling with the multitouch is amazing. Other mouses feel unnatural to me now. The only cons are that it takes a little bit to get used to since it is a little heavy and quite flat. Also, the tracking for the cursor won't move quite as fast as i'd like (i have the settings maxed out on my mac), but that's just me. Overall a very good product.

    Much cooler than the Mighty Mouse!

    • Written by from Dickerson

    no more problems with the scroll wheel! Hooray!
    I do miss the center button, however. How can we get a center button function?

    No Doubts

    • Written by from Battle Creek

    A better idea than words can say.

    However, it could stand to be a little wider and a little taller, too. My average sized fingers and hand occasionally right click or scroll.

    Not much to complain about except it is made in China.

    Cool mouse.. but not perfect

    • Written by from Northridge

    This is a great product that provides such a unique and sensational user experience. However, I really wish they kept the forth button from the original mighty mouse which I used as button for expose. And despite the nice looking design, predictably it is not the most comfortable mouse either. Other than that, it does deserve costing 70 dollars for its uniqueness.

    Tried it with heavy use.

    • Written by from Frankfort

    There are always going to be bad features and so far the only one on this is the touch pad is the whole surface of the mouse, so sometimes when grasping it it will scroll when you dont want to. However the mouse is not heavy...I cant believe someone said that. I'm comparing it to its previous 'Mighty Mouse wireless' and this is hands down slimmer and lighter despite the same battery usage. My batteries are still at 90% after leaving it on for about two weeks. It just takes some getting used to to get around the trackpad being everywhere. I've tried it with heavy use, meaning portal, Diablo II, World of Warcraft and it all works fine. Ill even post my settings: Tracking--one bar to the left of FAST....Scrolling--three bars to the left of FAST....Double Click--two bars to the left of FAST. Definately try before you buy. Go to the apple store. The only thing I miss are the exposé buttons...They could introduce four finger swipe for us though...

    Awesome, 1 problem - No Dashboard or Expose button

    • Written by from North Haven

    Love this new mouse so sleek and cool, like microsofts newest keyboard and mouse but waaaaaayyyyy better!! Only complaint is that it doesn't have enough buttons to customize to all up the Dashboard and Expose. Loved that about my older mac mouse - oh well guess that's what keyboard shortcuts are for. GET THIS BLUETOOTH MOUSE NOW AS YOU WON'T REGRET IT!!!

    Magic Mouse.

    • Written by from Columbia

    I got this in December. Nice packaged gift. Its cycle of batteries is one that goes from Needs new ones in 2 months, 2 months, 1 month. It's sticky sometimes, the sensor acts like it doesn't pick up the surface. It didn't work on my mousepad either. Apple is smart in the tech though. It's easy to you. So Yes, I would say buy it, but get the battery kit as well to save on constant batteries, and keep around your old mouse incase you have to reset it or something.

    Magic Mouse Does Not Disappoint!

    • Written by from Hemet

    I got this mouse with my 21" mac, and I love it! It's simple, left-hand friendly and has all the features of those other mice out there, with none of the buttons. Coming from a laptop track-pad, I had no issues adjusting to this mouse, and I love that apple has come around to the right-click.

    After using this mouse for a few weeks, I've found that I feel weird using other mice. They all feel bulky and too big in my hands, while this one is comfortable. I've had no ergonomic issues as I was expecting to deal with.

    My only complaint would be the batteries. I would think that apple would go for rechargeable keyboards/mice instead of regular disposable battery-powered ones. I guess that's hope for the future.

    This mouse doesn't eat up your battery too too quickly, but if you find yourself with dead batteries with no new ones to spare, you'll panic. My tip for buyers of this mouse is to buy rechargeables to go along with it. They'll make life a lot easier. Hopefully apple will figure out that rechargeable mice and keyboards are the way to go!

    Love it so far...

    • Written by from Boutiliers Pt.

    This is only my third day of using this mouse but so far, I love it. It's heavier than the last Apple mouse but I use a mouse pad with a wrist support, so it's not a problem. Besides, you can use it anywhere, like on your lap.

    I love, love, love the scrolling by stroking. The little scrolling button was my favourite part of the old mouse but it didn't work half the time.

    I do suggest that you not drop it on a hard, scratchy surface, like my ceramic tile floor. It still works fine but the touch surface must be soft 'cause I got a good scratch in it. But, as I say, it works fine. Also suggested, turn it and the keyboard off at night.

    Nice one, Apple!

    When they add the side buttons back - it will be awesome

    • Written by from Madisonville

    That is my main complaint and actually went back to my old mouse for that only reason. Scrolling is a 100% better and motion but not having the side buttons is a problem
