    My hand Ache

    • Written by from Singapore

    Well functionalities are superb. But the mouse is so flat and it is very difficult to get use to it, if you are going to use it for a long hour, your ring finger will start to ache. and the edges are too sharp so After a long hour of use your whole hand will start to ache.

    Horrible. Really.

    • Written by from Vancouver

    I am a fan of Apple, have a Macbook, Macbook Pro, iPhone and many other cool things Apple offers. I have purchased 3 mice for our company and was VERY VERY VERY DISAPPOINTED with it. It is heavy. You CAN'T feel it in your palm, tracking is not optimal. All in all, if you are a professional who does graphic design or video design and animation, this mouse would be the worst choice.
    How could Apple drop the ball like this?
    I would not even give it one star.
    Without exagerration, this is the worst mouse i used since 1999 or so. And we will definately return them.

    Uncomfortable.

    • Written by from warrenville

    This is by far the worst mouse I've ever own. I'm a photographer and I spend a lot of time in front of my computer editing. I bought this because of its wireless capabilities, however, It is so uncomfortable to work with. After the first hours my wrist was really in pain and the pain increases as you use it.

    It's is a nice looking mouse and it goes pretty good with your laptop, but I you are considering buying this to work doing edition you should consider another one

    Size is too Small

    • Written by from South San Francisco

    Multi-touch design is good.

    But the mouse itself is too small even for my medium size hand.
    Awesome if you only need the mouse for 5min.
    Start hurting my hand after using it for 20min.

    Battery Hog!

    • Written by

    Magic mouse is a battery hog. My office Logitech wireless mouse with 5 buttons has also two AA cells but out lasts Magic mouse 5 to 1. I used my office mouse longer per day than my home Apple mouse. For 18 months I haven't needed battery cells for Logitech while my Apple Magic mouse eats battery cells almost every 4 months. I suspect it is a poor design and consumes power every time your hand touches it. So if you are thinking or reading a document with the hand resting on the mouse, it continues to draw power even when no action is occurring.

    TERRIBLE

    • Written by from Ludlow

    Awesome concept, great first couple months. Started losing connection a lot even after batteries were replaced. Fell off my desk and broke like a crystal figurine. Now I'd farther use a $10 Logitech wireless mouse that takes less batteries and never loose connection then pay $70 to replace the Mighty Mouse.

    Smashed against the wall

    • Written by from Panama

    I love everything mac, but this is the most frustrating device i have ever owned. Maybe it works fine for irrelevant tasks like surfing the web, browsing through your desktop. But when it comes to performing tasks that require precision such as video editing, scrolling through timelines, positioning the cursor over an exact keyframe, adding or deleting points from masks or shapes, this mouse is totally useless and makes work so much more difficult and complicated. If you are a video or design professional, stay away from this mouse, it is only made to look nice, surfing the web or scrolling through itunes playlists, for serious work get a normal mouse or a digital pen tablet.

    Oh how much do I hate this mouse, let me count the ways.

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    I would give it a zero rating if I could. Every single time I have to change the batteries on this mouse it then has pairing problems with the computer. Apple support has suggestions for fixing this, but THEY REQUIRE A MOUSE. They actually advise you to have a wired or usb mouse in order to install your wireless mouse (and the batteries go out pretty frequently). Wait until they improve the technology, it is so not worth the stress and aggravation.

    This could be so much better

    • Written by from Sarasota

    I went to the apple store today with so much anticipation for the new mouse, but when I tried it out I noticed that there is no middle button and no gesture configuration to start up application or to go to spaces. Come on apple this mouse could have been so good yet it lacking in so many ways. Why is it so difficult for apple engineers to give all the features at once. I'm sure that public outcry will cause apple to update it code to get the feature added, but they should have release it with a full complement of programmable gestures and is it too much to ask for a middle button?

    a big disappointment

    • Written by from New York

    It looks great but for me it works poorly...the mouse moves the cursor incredibly slowly even when set to the fastest speeds and for whatever reason when i move the mouse it does not move smoothly but rather as if it was grinding on sand or something like it....all in all this is the second apple mouse i have purchased and the second time i have had the problem with trackng being incredibly slow...i have never owned any other brand mice that had this issue and i had hoped it had been fixed in this new version...i assmed it would have been...seems very strange to me and i am perplexed as to how it isnt a deal breaker for everybody...works the same when i tried it out in the showroom with an apple desktop so i know itsnt just my setup!as i said,strange

    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

    Sexy but unusable

    • Written by from Halifax

    If all you do is browse the web and read emails and all you want is a sexy looking mouse with a cool touch-scroll feature... go for it. 5 stars.

    If you're a professional that has to actually get work done either in code or pixels... don't waste your money. Buy a Logitech Revolution or MS Laser 7000. The 7000 is an amazing mouse. Super lightweight. Very ergonomic. Plenty of functionality. Simple to use.

    Pros:
    - Sexy looks
    - Scrolling is brilliant

    Cons:
    - Too thin. Only works as a finger mouse. Moving or 'kicking' with palm is impossible.
    - Having to lift the index finger to right click with the middle finger is very awkward.
    - Swipe gesture is very awkward. A simple thumb button is so much easier.
    - Should have a matte surface to make scrolling smoother (less friction).
    - Very heavy (but lithium cells might lighten it a bit).
    - Slow tracking.
    - Extremely limited functionality with just one button (or two if you insist) and only one usable gesture.

    Apple hasn't made a good mouse since the ADB II. End of story. But I guess it makes sense for them not to compete with MS and Logitech. For a casual user (my mom)... this mouse would be fine.

    Awful. Glad to be rid of it.

    • Written by from Frederick

    After dealing with the awful thing I am finally rid of it and thrilled to have a Logitech mouse with real buttons. The Magic Mouse is wildly oversensitive - look at it funny and you're on a page you had no intention of going to. I really did try to live with it but it made trying to do anything online a nightmare. It's an elegant concept, but badly, badly executed. Worst Apple product I ever owned with the possible exception of the latest iPod Nano...

    Gimmicks over useability

    • Written by from southminster

    The touch element of this product is erratic to the point of being unusable. Even with a third party app used to decrease sensitivity and remove some of the unnecessary gestures, this mouse is still completely useless in a large number of programs. It is also difficult to use with with google maps and other programs that require the user to click and drag.

    This mouse is completely incompatible with Adobe creative Suite software.

    The worst piece of Apple hardware i've used to date.

    Unreliable connection

    • Written by from Newton

    The mouse loses its Bluetooth connection roughly once an hour. Replacing the batteries doesn't help; it's just a fundamentally unreliable piece of hardware. I keep a trackpad handy and the mouse system preferences open at all times so I can reconnect it. I'm pretty much ready to buy a USB mouse and throw this in the trash. Apple should make a USB Magic Mouse in order to combine reliability and multitouch functionality.

    CAUTION PRO USERS

    • Written by from Albuquerque

    I love Apple products and ordered this beautiful mouse only to discover that it is completely unusable in the software I spend my whole day using. First off, the Bluetooth connectivity with my MacPro is a disaster. The cursor jitters and stops and starts all of the time. I cant get a precise click on any object I'm going for. But the worst of it is the ultra-sensitive touch surface. I find the screen sliding all over and zooming in and out constantly. Beware Adobe users, this will slow your productivity down to the point of pure frustration.

    BTW, I've tried 2 Magic Mice with the same results. Back to the Mighty Mouse I go…

    Complete piece of junk!

    • Written by from Edmonton

    Mine was getting disconnected fairly frequently, like 1-5 times a week for months. Now it just doesn't work and will not be discovered by Bluetooth even though it has fully-charged Apple AA batteries.
    Apple, why can't you just make a wired USB version?!?!?
