    Disappointing

    • Written by from Quincy

    I had high hopes for this mouse, but for what I do, it's just not a good fit. I work as a graphic designer, and it's hard to find a happy middle between productivity and frustration. The mouse is very sensitive to the slightest movement when I'm in InDesign, and I find myself scrolling back and forth on the page to get anything done. The same with Illustrator. If I go into preference and make it slower, it defeats the purpose when I'm on the internet trying to scroll through pages. I'm planning on getting my old mighty mouse out.

    Waste of Time- Where are the Expose Functions?

    • Written by from New York

    What a waste of time! This mouse has no expose function what so ever and therefore is a waste of time. I find myself returning to the the trackpad on my laptop and hardly using this stupid mouse. What is worse is that you install the software and it overrides your expose functions on your macbook's track pad. Come on Apple..............someone forgot to bring their brain to work when they invested this piece of junk. NOT happy!

    Going back to the might mouse!

    Going back in time with this

    • Written by from Montrose

    The tracking on the Magic Mouse is weak, I had to whip out an ancient mouse pad in order to make it work at an acceptable level. Furthermore, there is no Exposé function on the new Magic Mouse, which actually takes an IMac's awesome functionality years backwards. It is time for the current mouse without a tracking ball or a portable glass pad be born.

    Horrible

    • Written by from San Antonio

    I'm on my second "Magic Mouse" and it again doesn't work well. It constantly disconnects from the computer (while in use), the right button works intermittently, it eats batteries, has unsteady tracking, and scrolls erratically. The first "Magic Mouse" had the same problems until it just stopped working. My wife has a "Magic Mouse" and it too has similar problems. My circa 2006 USB Apple Mouse works better than the "Magic Mouse".

    Imprecise

    • Written by from Lakewood

    For my work I need a mouse that puts the pointer where I want. This mouse does not do that. Its okay if you're clicking on big huge things because it will put the pointer in the general vicinity of where you want. This mouse is a source of frustration.

    Less buttons = Less Functionality

    • Written by from Holly ridge

    If your using any programs that require more than one button then this mouse is not for you. It will require going into your mac system preferences to try and update more then just a left click. Then when that doesn't work you can try going into whatever program you are using to see if you can enable more mouse options. Then after spending 30 mins scrolling through forums or going through apple help you'll decide to either write a negative product review.

    Why buy this mouse when you can buy a cheaper mouse that works the first time around without playing around in settings. Macs are supposed to be user friendly. This mouse is not.

    One of the worst mouse ever

    • Written by from Pescara

    It's expensive and poor quality.
    This is not an Apple product ... it's just stylish, glamourous ... but low quality!
    Any cheap Logitech mouse is better than this mouse.
    It often loose the bluetooth connection, multi touch gesture is not ergonomic.
    Must cost 15USD ... no more.
    Shame of you

    FRAGILE

    • Written by from Yorba Linda

    This mouse is great while it works. It breaks very easily simply by putting it into your computer bag (In my case a rolling Tumi bag). This is the second one and final one in the last 6 months. They just stop working - and no it is not battery related. I am an IT professional and no rookie to technology. This thing is WAY to FRAGILE!

    What a tease!

    • Written by from Spokane

    I've had this mouse for less than a year. I was very impressed with how it worked. I loved every feature about it. Then it quit working. I can still scroll up and down , and left and right click, but I can't move the cursor around. Luckily I have my old Mighty Mouse, so I can still use that. I've looked online to try to find ways to fix it, but nothing has worked. I then tried to call apple to have them help me, but I would need to shell out more money for that, which is a major disappointment. In the end, I wouldn't recommend this mouse to anyone, which is unfortunate, because I really did like it until it quit working.

    Not what i expected....

    • Written by from fort worth

    I Bought the magic mouse but was very disappointed as soon as i made the first swipe. The mouse had a coated shine on the top which was annoying when trying to swipe your fingers. I also had to set the pointer speed all the way up and the was still not what i wanted. So luckily I returned it and got the MAGIC TRACKPAD. This turned out to work much much better than the magic mouse did.

    PAIN Pain Pain

    • Written by from Southborough

    Nice product design, unless you want to actually use it for any length of time. Not long before you get wrist and hand pain. Button is too hard to push (index finger pain as well).

    Also not full functionality compared to the external track pad.

    Apple should provide the option to swap these for something that doesn't hurt to use.

    Not a good thing!

    • Written by from Las Vegas

    I don't like mine! If you accidently lift it up off the table, you lose connection and have to take time and spin it around on the table before the connection comes back. This is very frustrating when you are trying to do some serious work. Also, the batteries are constantly going dead. So . . . you have to take the time to address this problem, as well. It's convenient in the fact that you don't have an additional cord to worry about. However, dealing the the cord is less of a P.I.A. than the other issues that the wireless mouse presents.

    NO third button???

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    Magic mouse is good but if you are using Maya its useless since you will need a third button functionality and the magic mouse doesn't have it.

    This is a big mistake by apple not including the third button functionality.

    not good for my use

    • Written by from Londonderry

    Sorry to be a nay-sayer on this particular product. First and most importantly, I've been using a Microsoft 6000 laser mouse with 4 buttons and a clicking/spinning/tilting wheel for 5 years now. This is my baseline. My first complaint is the shallowness. I'm use to resting my hand on top of the large/high MS mouse. With apple, it requires me to hold it up on my own make long days in my hand Second big prob for me is lack of 4/5/6 buttons or motions. I have Spaces and widgets on their own button. No can do with the MM..you have to use the keyboard....Extra step for me. Lastly, the touch-based scrolling is nifty but quirkly. I cannot get the same preciseness with the MM that I can get with a clicking wheel (when it used to work) on my MS mouse. Same problem with the 2-finger swipe. Not always accurate where as a 'click' is (you know when you've clicked but you dont know if your swipe was successful therefore sometimes sending me back too many web pages than I want, etc).

    NOT RECOMMENDED!

    • Written by from West Vancouver

    This is the 2nd Mac product that has disappointed me (the 1st being Snow Leopard). Tracking is unreliable and spotty at best (which is a big deal when you are talking about a mouse). Would be a 4 or 4.5 if this problem was solved.

    Can't stand this mouse

    • Written by from Aztec

    The mouse does not feel comfortable in my hand because the edges are not rounded like all other mice, no 3rd or 4th mouse buttons. More than half the time I do a right click, it reads it as a left click, and to top it all off, the ENTIRE mouse senses your fingers' movements so as your moving your mouse it'll scroll unintentionally as opposed to they way it would handle touch scrolling if only a small portion was touch sensitive. I'd ask Apple for a refund but I doubt I'd get one. =(

    Two finger swipe/navigate stopped working.

    • Written by from Morgantown

    After about 4 weeks of use the 2 finger swipe/navigate doesn't work anymore. System preferences for the mouse shows its selected but it still doesn't work. Scrolling still works as well as left/right click. Very disappointed

    Very uncomfortable to use

    • Written by from San Francisco

    The magic mouse has an odd shape, with sides that slope upwards and outwards. The device tends to want to pop out of your hand. I'm not sure why they did this, but it makes the mouse incredible uncomfortable to use if you are doing work that requires extensive use of the mouse. While it looks cool - It truly is a BAD design. Very un-apple like :(

    I'm going back to the last version of the mouse.
