    Garbage

    • Written by from Baton Rouge

    I titled this"Garbage," because that is where my my "magic mouse" is. And not the first one, the second one. These things are cheap, and they are garbage. I wish I could have my $140 back. Apple should be ashamed for putting this product out. And I am NOT tough on equipment, these are just poorly made. Save your money and use the touchpad. It is a good indicator of quality that Apple won't let me use the word C.R.A.P. in this review. What are they worried about?

    Geez! What happened to dependability?

    • Written by from American Canyon

    I am very disappointed that after a year, my MM's laser tracking is not responding. I had to pull out my 2002 wired mouse to bail me out! Seriously Apple! $75 for a product that has not endurance. SMH!!! I will try to get a replacement (free) from Apple. Stay posted on outcome.

    Bad.....

    • Written by from South Mills

    If I scroll down, 70% of the time it will swipe back.

    This mouse drains batteries in 5-10 days.

    After about a week, even though this should last longer, the mouse dies in the middle of Logic Pro use.....

    Looks great wish it worked with the iPhone 5!

    • Written by from White Plains

    Have my new iPhone 5 works great only problem is the carpel tunnel I'm getting in both hands from holding with one and typing or clicking with the other. I'm nearsighted and the display is great without my glasses if I hold it up close but unfortunately this appears to be just right to mess up both hands. If I could use a mouse with my wrist strait it would help greatly. But unfortunately that's not to be since apple has decided otherwise and you can't even use an aftermarket Bluetooth mouse with it. Very disappointed in an otherwise impressive product .

    Too Sensitive

    • Written by from Boston

    I've been trying for over a year to get used to this mouse. It's too sensitive and will bounce me back a page when I just graze the surface of it. This is insanely frustrating when you have to retype all your data. I am going to look for the old, reliable, corded mouse tomorrow because this one makes me feel like crushing it with a giant boulder.

    Heavy!

    • Written by from Astoria

    It is very heavy and causes you get serious carpal tunnel, it moves very very slow even on the fastest setting and you have to run your poor hand all over the table... Very disappointed, expected much better from Apple!

    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.

    Spastic rodent

    • Written by from Centreville

    The cursor is constantly skidding away from where it is supposed to be. Didn't someone at Apple try this annoying appliance out before foisting it on us?

    The Magic Mouse is Truly Magical!!!!

    • Written by from Copiague

    The fact that it loses its blue tooth connection EVERY 10 seconds to maybe a minute, is magic. Just to get to this spot in the review took 20 minutes! I am disabled so to return it would have been a hassle. When I first got the not so magic mouse, I came here looking for answers and at one point thought I did find an answer. I followed the directions and it did work better…for one day. Now it has gotten so bad that I was forced to buy a different mouse, which I did and am waiting for the delivery. If I could have given a rating of no stars, I would have. So save your money and the aggravation and get yourself a different Mac compatible mouse! BTW, I know 2 people who threw theirs out!

    Garbage

    • Written by from Schenectady

    Listen to the other reviews. Try working with a speadsheet and have the thing zoom your sheet 100 columns to the right out of the blue.

    I was in the Albany, NY store a few days ago. They have 8-9 iMacs and a few minis. It used to be that only 2 or 3 had the trackpad and the rest were the "magic" mouse. Now, there is only ONE iMac with the magic mouse. I wonder why that is?

    Maybe I'm "holding it wrong". This mouse should be recalled. I want it swapped for a wired mouse.

    NO STARS EVER!!

    • Written by from Dulwich Hill

    This is the biggest piece of rubbish in the history of computing. This mouses loses its connection with my laptop, positioned no more than 10 cm away, literally every single time I attempt to use it; sometime multiple times. I spend more time switching it off and on again, and clicking and moving it randomly until the connection is restored than actually using it for its intended purpose. I have used more disposable batteries in this device alone than in all other battery operated devices in the remainder of my life, and even with Apple branded rechargeable batteries, which I stupidly also purchased, I am constantly switching them. This is the most frustrating device you will ever own!

    Lucky it's a looker as this is a lemon.

    • Written by from Hillarys

    A lot of people complain about the ergonomics. I've never personally had a problem with the ergonomics because I stop using it out of frustration long before any physical discomfort can set in. The acceleration/deceleration is poor - shocking in fact. When slowing down it's like moving the cursor through lumpy molasses. And then you find you've run out of room and need to pick the thing up in order to continue the movement because you haven't quite reached where you needed to go.

    "built-in software lets you configure Magic Mouse any way you want" the synopsis on this site tells us. This is simply not true. For example, the acceleration isn't adjustable in the default settings. Why, why, why? You can change this setting in the terminal which helps somewhat but this doesn't fix the problem of its inexact, jittery movement to begin with. This, it turns out, can be partially remedied with a mouse pad that my 6 year old $15 mouse never needed. I suspect the rest of its jitters is down to the bluetooth connection (an overrated technology if there ever was one).

    On the plus side, the gestures work well and it is nice to look at.

    Poor, Apple, poor. Your marketing department sure can sell a story though. All style, no substance.

    Buy this mouse only if you don't mind troubleshooting, workarounds and compromises.

    Terrible for spreadsheets

    • Written by from Palo Alto

    I really, really want to like this mouse. But it is utterly useless when using spreadsheets. It seemingly randomly jumps hundreds of cells, meaning that I spend more time going back to the desired cell than actually entering information. Terrible, terrible, terrible. I've put my "magic" mouse on the shelf and have mouse a logitech mouse. Not as pretty, but lets me do my work...

    I HATE THIS MOUSE!

    • Written by from PRAIRIE VILLAGE

    I have renamed this mouse the "Phantom Mouse" because it will take me places where my hand did not move it! I am a graphic designer and my job is stressful enough as it is. I don't need this additional frustration.

    So thank you, magic mouse. Thank you for making me so utterly and painfully frustrated. What happened to keeping things simple? These "techy" devices are making the simplest tasks more challenging and complicated!

    A crazy product

    • Written by

    It drives me nuts. The whole page would disappear when I accidentally touched the mouse without knowing it. You don't a jet to take you to the next block. Nobody in our studio likes it. We all switched back to the $10 mouse with a scrolling wheel now.

    Can't figure out the lag

    • Written by from Sherman Oaks

    The lag on this mouse is ridiculous. I've tried all of the work arounds, resetting it, moving other blue tooth items away with no success. I can not recommend this mouse.

    Do not use for design work

    • Written by from Saint Paul

    This is the most frustrating piece of Apple equipment I have ever tried using. I was looking forward to the wireless mouse, with less wires running across my desk, but the Magic Mouse is almost impossible to work with when trying to do graphic design, the slightest touch sends it zooming over to the opposite side of the page.

    What Happened?

    • Written by from Simpsonville

    I have used this mouse for several years with no problems and was very happy with it until recently. Now it has become almost unusable at times due to skipping and lagging with movement. Its unresponsive and freezes up at times. Based on support posts on apples sight, there are quite a few complaints about this. Ive seen many different explanations of the problem, but it sounds like a bluetooth connection issue. Regardless, how has it work fine for years and then seemed to recently start acting up? This should have been fixed. Ive actually got my apple wired mouse back out because I cant take it anymore! This thing is not functional!
