    MAGIC mouse

    • Written by from Maple

    I got to say, i've been waiting to get the magic mouse for a while ever since i got my mac and i got to say, not only is the design beautiful but it also works very well. the multi touch gestures are amazing! Just takes a while to get used to it after using my trackpad for so long, but for me, this is a well made product.

    BEST EVER MOUSE, PERIOD ..... LOVE MY MAGIC MOUSE

    • Written by from Aurora

    The mouse is very quick and responsive ..... And it can do more than any mouse I've ever owned .... Even have one for my MacAir ..... Best $69 spent ....

    As for batteries, I use rechargeable and yes it goes thru them faster than my old mouse, but it does more too .... Not an issue ..... Much smarter mouse!

    Stylish, but Impractical

    • Written by from Arlington

    Although stylish, this mouse is not practical. It loses the connection to the computer so often that I frequently find it easier to use the touchpad than to click on the appropriate icons to reconnect the mouse every ten minutes. Additionally, the battery life is very short. I had to replace the battery after only a few months of receiving the mouse. And I only use the mouse for typical web surfing.

    its great

    • Written by from Pfafftown

    the best most simplistic mouse ever. It makes using a mac so much easier. I went from having a pc mouse on a mac mini and it just didn't work as well as the magic mouse. it is the best mouse ever for mac....NO TRACKPAD!!!!!!!!!

    Save your money!!!

    • Written by from West Nyack

    Probably the worst creation apple has ever made. Between the random zoom in and outs, page swipes, and connection losses, this is just horrendous. Not to mention the amount of batteries needed. I have to change the batteries at least once a week. I thought a wireless mouse would be the way to go, so I could save a USB port, but I couldn't wait to throw this out the window. After many frustrating hours of usage, I decided to get a standard mouse that WORKS. Sorry Apple, hit the design floor again and figure this out. The only reason I gave it 1 star is because I couldn't give it 0.

    Comment

    • Written by from Jacksonville

    This isn't a review, so much as a helpful tip/comment. There are plenty of people complaining about hand pain after/during use. I believe (and I may be wrong) that they are holding it wrong. There is a picture in the product overview of a hand holding the mouse the correct way, and that causes no pain (for me). I think that maybe some people have pain because they are holding it differently. So, I suggest looking at the picture first, because it might just save you pain later.

    (There are occasional connection problems, but that is expected from any wireless anything)

    Great

    • Written by from North Garden

    What a wonderful mouse to use. Elegant, clean, nice, etc... Just beautiful. I would advise checking one out in the store to get see if you can handle the shape as it is not for everybody. However, I love it and its worked wonderfully for the last 2 years.

    Great Mouse !!!

    • Written by from Longmont

    I have three of these mice - and have not had a problem with any of them. They work with either regular batteries or rechargeable batteries (Apple or any 1.2v NiMH batteries). Regular batteries will last much longer than rechargeable ones - but in general the battery life meets or exceeds expectation. I am not sure why so many people are giving poor reviews. After using this mouse - I find it very difficult and awkward to use other mice. I use the Magic Mouse quite a bit (at least 4 hours per day) - and I can't say that it has caused any hand cramping or discomfort.

    This Mouse is awesome and the toughest thing ever !!!!!!!!!!

    • Written by from Forsyth

    Not only does it work great but if you have a CHILD who likes too sneak around and mess with the computer there is no better mouse!! This mouse will take licking and keep on ticking throw after throw it still works flawlessly. And batteries a lot less than logitech my mother replaces hers in that thing weekly. Best mouse ever .

    Been A Good Mouse So Far

    • Written by from Huron

    This mouse came with my iMac I bought last February. Many people complain about the battery life but if you look under your bluetooth feature it tells you exactly how much percentage of life you have remaining. My battery life has been excellent for all that I use it. The ergonomics are wonderful, no pain in my hand and I enjoy the intuitive features only Apple can create. I have had random disconnecting/reconnecting issues in the past, however they resolved with turning the bluetooth off and then back on, changing the batteries, and restarting the computer. Would buy another in short. It is hard to use another mouse after this one.

    OK for web surfing but...

    • Written by from San Francisco

    Don't even think about using this mouse for any sort of film or sound editing in programs like Final Cut or Pro Tools. I've run into several problems with using it in Pro Tools and have reverted back to a usb mouse. I do however like using it with internet browsers as it is easy to scroll on webpages.

    Giving Up

    • Written by from Charlotte

    After a year of constantly replacing batteries (yes, many battery changes in a year) I have to throw in the towel. The mouse constantly loses connection. It is beyond frustrating to have to jimmy it around and hope that it finds its way again so I can finish whatever task I am working on.
    My Office Manager jokes that MM is either having a good day or a bad day. And unfortunately for us, it's a bad day 5 days out of 7.
    I thought I might have gotten a lemon but it seems other Apple MM users are experiencing the same problems.
    Also, I have started using it for a drawing program and it is impossible to control fine, fine detail being that the speed is jumpy.
    So sad for us that we will be going back to unattractive but functional (and most likely) old school mice.
    Please Apple, find a way to improve upon this good looking but non functioning mouse.

    Took it back instantly

    • Written by from Markham

    This mouse is not built for people that use the mouse for most of their work. I use my mouse for 8 hours per day as a developer and after two days my wrist felt numb and starting to sieze up. I had to shake my wrists out almost every 10 minutes.

    I would expect a company like apple to work a crucial thing like "ergonomics" in to their designs, but seems like they completely ignored that.

    I'm not sure who actually would like this mouse but I took it back in favour of the logitech Performance MX

    Very Disappointing

    • Written by from Pinehurst

    I do a lot of desk top publishing and decided to upgrade to this mouse. It scrolls nicely, it zooms in and out nicely, but when it comes to clicking, or highlighting or wanting to insert text into an existing sentence it fails miserably. It freezes. I have to click elsewhere and then return to try again. It hesitates. It will not allow me to insert text into an existing file name. I have resurrected my old microsoft Intelimouse, plugged it in and it is working the way a mouse should work. I'm returning this magic mouse to the store!

    The Best

    • Written by from Midland

    This is one of the best purchases you can ever make on a mouse. Looks great, works great, and feels great to use. Bluetooth works outstandingly and the overall mouse performance for tasks such as precise editing is unbelievable. It is very durable as well. I have dropped it many times on accident and nothing at all happens to it. It looks very well with either wireless or wired Apple keyboards. Multitouch features are great on it, and there is so much to adjust to your liking in the system preferences on your mac. Great product!!

    ....super

    • Written by from Hamilton

    i just got this mouse few days ago and i really like it, i like the way is made and.
    most people might not like it because it doesn't have a left & right buttons.
    the way i look at it is that if it has the same functionality but looks different and especially that neat i like it.

    Changing the batteries

    • Written by from olney

    This mouse is great except that it is difficult to know how to change the batteries. I should be simple and easy to open the compartment.

    Magic Mouse

    • Written by from South Croydon

    This is a really wonderful mouse. Smooth, comfortable, versatile and precise with very good looks to boot. I love the multidirectional touch sensitive top - so easy to use wherever your fingers go. Yes, the tracks need a little cleaning every now and then but that's easy to do with a wipe of a finger. Once loaded with the popular brands of batteries I use the magic mouse never lets me down. The design of the sides means the mouse lifts to make it seem weightless as it glides across the mat. V quiet click too.
