    Magic Mouse-good but needs a few tweaks

    • Written by from Darien

    Personally, I think it's a good mouse. It's nice to be able to customize your mouse settings to your liking and turn certain features on or off. My only complaint is that the battery drains fast and you have to replace them often, which adds up with the price of AA Batteries.

    I like it!

    • Written by from Houston

    I just purchased the Magic Mouse. I enjoy it tremendously....It alleviates the strain on my wrists from using my track paid, which is wonderful for my carpal tunnel. The mouse provides smooth and easy movement and navigation around webpages and it works just like the Mac Book trackpad. Overall, although, the mouse is a bit pricey and does not have a rechargeable battery, I think its great!

    Brilliant, but not perfect

    • Written by from Oxted

    The magic mouse works really well in all the ways that are described in terms of being able to scroll, move backwards and forwards through web pages etc. If you have a macbook and like the way the touchpad works then you will like the way this works. There are two problems thought. Most importantly due to the design underneath it does not slide well - I have had to use a really smooth surface like a magazine, normal mouse mats really drag especially side to side. Secondly its a little flat so does not sit comfortably under your hand. The reality is the benefits outweigh these issues so I will certainly continue to use it - hopefully apple will resolve these issues at some point. Well done apple for moving the humble mouse forward though.

    Best Apple Mouse Ever (but that's not saying much)

    • Written by from Gray

    The Dove soap bar, I mean Magic Mouse is very cool and works well, but it could be larger/wider and fit the hand better. Unfortunately, Apple goes for aesthetics over functionality and in the case of mice, that doesn't work. (Hockey Puck anyone?) It's not very ergonomically correct or friendly. It may give you "the claw" from gripping it, especially if you have bigger hands.

    The left click is much more responsive than on the Mighty Mouse. The multi-touch stuff works great and should be worked into all mice. The noise from clicking it is a good deal louder than the Mighty Mouse, but I got used to it very quickly.

    All in all it's a good mouse. I would probably give it 3.5 stars but I rounded up sense there aren't any half stars.

    Fun, smart looking mouse

    • Written by from New York

    I love Apple products, but this one isn't quite as perfect as I'd like. The two finger scrolling is great if you're working on a mouse pad, but if you are just working on a table surface the mouse skids while you move your fingers across it. I also really wish I could just double tap the mouse to click on something like one can on the Macbook trackpad. Overall though, I'm happy with the mouse and look forward to further improvements on it.

    Very Good Mouse

    • Written by

    I think it's a very good mouse. In the first two weeks you might experience some difficulties while using it but when you get used to it, you are going to like it a lot. I even play action and first person shooter games with the mouse (Call of Duty 4:Modern Warfare, and BioShock) and it's completely fine. I don't say it's as good as a gaming mouse but it still does the job when it comes to gaming. Also, you can used it while you are still sitting at a far distance from your Mac or MacBook. If I would have to suggest some improvements, I would say the Sensitivity can still be increased. When you set the sensitivity at its Maximum, it's fine, but they can still make some improvements.

    This is a beautiful mouse. It is surprisingly responsive. It does what Apple claims it should do, but the only problem I have with it. Sometimes it loses connection and also get glitchy at times when it's waking. Otherwise, superb.

    Apple Magic Mouse

    • Written by from Phoenix

    My spouse got me a Magic Mouse for my birthday and I love it except for one problem!
    I think it might have been designed and tested over short periods of usage. It may be meant to discourage long term computer use! The sharp edges start to hurt my right hand after about an hour of use. Does anyone know of a solution to the sharp edges?
    I'm tempted to try to file the edge down but it may require a special file. I think the top is plastic but if it is glass that would be a big problem trying not to chip the heck out of it!

    Excellent wireless mouse

    • Written by from Long Beach

    Love how this mouse feels in my hand. I havent purchased a wireless mouse before because most of them are heavy and bulky. This is a smooth and slender mouse, and fits perfectly in my small hands. The design is beautiful, as always. Scrolling is a delight, no clicky scroll wheel, just slide your finger on the glassy surface. You do need to keep that index finger on the left side of the mouse and not let it drift too far right--this isnt a one button mouse and you might find yourself right clicking when you dont want to.

    My only complaint: resolution. I am a graphic designer and I need to be able to draw very smooth lines--which is more easily done with a high resolution mouse. It is difficult to do with this mouse, and I will need to use a high resolution mouse for Photoshop and Illustrator. So a caveat emptor to designers. But it is great for 90% of what I do!

    NO Expose'

    • Written by from Nampa

    I have had the Magic Mouse for about 3-4 days now and love it but I cannot believe there is not a gesture for expose' I use expose all the time and they have now taken that away. Sad.

    Connection problems

    • Written by from Новосибирск

    It loses connection constantly. Several times a day I have to realization that mouse isn't connected to my MacBook Pro. It isn't really a problem to connect it, but it's really annoying. Because each time you have to find Bluetooth mark on the top on the screen, and then in two clicks connect the mouse with MacBook.

    I just got it, easy to install, its a splurge but fits well in my hand and moves easily. I would get it online just to skip having to head to the store.

    A great mouse!

    • Written by from Bangkok

    This is really great mouse. It is responsive and very easy to use. The only problem for me is the battery life. I got this mouse with my new iMac a month ago and I replaced the battery 2 times now and is going to be the third time tomorrow. Within ONE month!

    great mouse, but lacks middle click

    • Written by from Oklahoma City

    I got this mouse, love it, but I do have to keep my old mighty mouse plugged in when I want to use programs that utilize the middle button. this is really annoying. please add middle click, i mean it would be really simple in my opinion to just make 2 fingers+click= middle click...

    Great mouse, BUT software refinements are needed...

    • Written by from Victorville

    This thing is lovable and a nice utility product, BUT the usefulness is brought to a grinding halt where GOOGLE MAPS are concerned. The default settings that work great else where (concerning zooming with fingers like using apple+scrollwheel cripple Google Maps. You can't move anywhere on the map without accidentally zooming up and down in magnification, making it useless with the mouse. Apple needs to work this problem out... I hate having to change my mouse zoom / scroll settings just to accommodate one website!

    Love it, mostly

    • Written by from Raleigh

    I love this mouse for the most part. My only complaint would be the "feet" that it slides on. I don't like the feel of it at all, especially on the bare surface of my desk. I am considering trying a glass mouse pad.

    Love it

    • Written by from SAN FRANCISCO

    I have CTS and the flat profile keeps my wrists neutral. The solid state scrolling and extra paging gesture are great. The mighty mouse scroll ball was constantly gunking up so that it would stop working. I'm a little worried about the lack of the ability to map some input combo to middle click. I use Maya extensively and was used to using a 3 button mouse, but am fast becoming accustomed to its 2-button configuration. I have to say that the way Maya maps key/button combos to inputs isn't the most intuitive ... but NOTHING about Maya is intuitive. Besides that, I don't think I use any software that requires the middle click. But it would be more reassuring to know that I could map it if I needed to. Really, Apple, if you can get two finger swiping to work, how easy is a middle-click?

    This mouse is amazing. I love that it feels just like an ipod touch when I scroll or navigate. At first I was uncertain about getting it because it didn't have an expose feature, but I did what everyone suggested and activated expose on the "corners" of my screen and found it just as convenient as on my trackpad. But, even though the "corners" did work really well, I would still rather have an actual expose option on the mouse (which is why it's 4 stars). The scrolling and the swipe navigating is very intuitive though and the mouse has a good weight/feels sturdy.

    Very Good!

    • Written by from Noblesville

    The mouse is very slick and has a great design and ease of use compared to many other third-party wireless mouses out there. If you are looking for the best mouse you can buy, look no further than the Magic Mouse, built by Apple themselves. The only issue I have had with this mouse is reconnecting it after I wake it from sleep. It takes it about a minute to regain full functionality. I do not know why it does this and if it is only specific to my combination of Mac and mouse.

    Very cool mouse, but not perfect

    • Written by from Eagle

    The overall function of this mouse is fantastic. The scrolling is smooth and it is really fun to use. It really shines when navigating around iTunes or iPhoto or any application that contains a large amount of files. On the down side, it does go through batteries. I went to using rechargeables, as even in casual use I was replacing alkalines about every other month. The other, and most annoying, problem is its tendency to lose connection for no reason. When it does, it usually takes several minutes to get it back, and during that time you're dead in the water. Despite the fact that it's power hungry and not entirely reliable, I would never go back to a traditional mouse. Hopefully future versions will solve these chief complaints.
