    crashes constantly

    • Written by from Toronto

    The no scroll wheel is great but this mouse constantly crashes and disconnect in OS Lion. Also battery drains fast. My rechargeable battery goes in less than a week. My Mighty Mouse wireless could last a month with the same usage.

    Magic Mouse - OUCH!

    • Written by from Morgan Hill

    I love Apple products and I love what this mouse can do. Unfortunately it has some major problems. The sensitivity is such that it can scroll or zoom without provocation, but more importantly, it seriously lacks in the ergonomics department. I also find the mouse to have tracking problems, often dropping whatever you are trying to move. I've learned to get somewhat better at this with a lighter touch, but since when does one need to "learn" how to move a mouse? I've worked on computers for well over 20 years, Macs only, and in all that time I have never encountered discomfort. I'm now seeing an orthopedic doctor, and the pain in my wrist is awful. Each morning and each day is an exercise in pain. I hope the track pad works better. Two stars for what it does Apple, but please address how it does it.

    I usually don't write reviews unless I'm really ticked off. And I'm ticked off.

    This mouse is horrible. It's so unreliable and is constantly disconnecting. It's slow, then it's too fast. I love the idea of a wireless mouse, but Apple needs to fine tune this product.

    The Wild Mouse

    • Written by from Hudson

    I find that even after adjusting all the settings that I could find (on my Mac as well as in the software applications I use), the MM is uber sensitive to the lightest touch, and inadvertantly skitters away and flips to other pages on my document. It sometimes likes to zoom in on my images as well, "magically." This is most apparent in Adobe InDesign and Photoshop: pretty much the only aplications I ever use and costs me all kinds of time getting back to where I need to be. The mouse can also get a little crazy when scrolling through folders looking for a file. I love WHAT it does, by I don't love HOW it does it. Two Stars.

    This mouse is way too sensitive

    • Written by from San Angelo

    I at first was thrilled with the Magic Mouse, now it just drives me crazy when it scrolls for seemingly no reason. I am not even scrolling with the finger on the top of the mouse, but where I stabilize it and move it. All of a sudden I am somewhere else completely on my multi page documents, or when I am isolating a photo in Photoshop. I wish there were more controls besides if you want a secondary button or if you want to use gestures. I want my old fashioned Dell mouse. I am a total Apple fan, except when it comes to this horrible mouse, I even liked the "hockey puck" mouse.

    Form Over Function

    • Written by from edmonton

    This mouse is great for casual use. It's responsive and has a very large touch-surface, which makes it fantastic for word processing and web browsing. The battery life is also excellent; I can last for a few months with one set of batteries.

    However, it's very unreliable and uncomfortable for prolonged use. It's small and not ergonomic, so one needs to hold it in a claw grip for best control. Accidentally brushing the surface often registers as a scroll, which is irritating. It also *very* frequently confuses right click with left click. The bluetooth connection is also intermittent and occasionally hiccups. This last point is a personal quibble, but the mouse feels too weighty and hard to drag given its size and responsive touch surface.

    It's a great stylish mouse, but offers very little control, precision, or comfort. This means it's good for infrequent or casual use (no gaming, professional creative apps, etc), but if using it this way, why spend this much on a mouse? Unless you love the look and feel, I'd skip this one.

    It's alright..

    • Written by from Hsinchu City

    Yes, the touch technology is great, scrolling and finger motions works great, but when using this mouse.. it just doesn't feel right, perhaps too flat and long.

    The touch technology is great, but when is Apple going to consider ergonomics in their mouse design?

    Just get a plain mouse....

    • Written by from WOODBURY

    Reconsider purchasing this mouse----it seems cool, but don't be fooled. I have stopped using my magic mouse and went for old-fashioned wired mouse. Has problem connecting half the time, and other times does not work at all on some games. Please, Apple, improve this seemingly awesome product!!!

    looks good, but...

    • Written by from Sterling Heights

    it's way too sensitive. I just want a mouse that works like a mouse. Pages zoom and scroll just moving your finger slightly and while holding the mouse. It is a very frustrating experience. I've tried adjusting settings to no avail.

    Wireless Mouse Issues

    • Written by from Canyon Country

    Well, I am back to using my good old "plug in" mouse. At first I liked not having a cord but after the first month or so of using it, it began losing connection with my Mac. It jerks around the screen and hasn't been very reliable. Every time I begin to use it, the screen scrolls down and I need to make adjustments. Today, it lost connection again and after turning it on and off, changing the batteries, etc., the arrow was frozen in time. Maybe when Apple makes improvements on the product, I will give it another try but, for now, my "plug in" will be my first choice.

    Magic Mouse loses connection frequently

    This mouse interrupts my work frequently by losing its connection to my 2011 iMac. Fresh batteries don't help. Very annoying.

    Not very good at all

    • Written by from WARRAGUL SOUTH

    I have stopped using mine as it erratically loses connection. Its much better to use a wired in mouse that is available all the time!
    It looks and feels beautiful though.

    Disaster for Designers

    • Written by from Bozeman

    At first I loved this mouse, it is very light and easy to move, You can scroll, pan, swipe great idea! Then I used it for work inside Adobe CS and Cad software. You have to be incredibly careful, any light accidental touch on the mouse sent my screen panning to the left or up and down. This mouse might be great for folks who naturally keep all of their fingers in the air above the mouse so as not to accidentally touch it, but I like to work with a relaxed hand. Sure, you can adjust the settings in preferences and turn the swipe/pan functions off, but who wants to do that 3 or 4 times a day. I have had it now for 2 months and it is still driving me crazy, and is hurting my productivity.

    do not bother with this mouse

    • Written by from Englewood

    don't waste your money. the pointer jumps around, skips and is absolutely impossible to use if you require any sort of precision, as with programs like photoshop, final cut, etc.

    additionally, i've spent a significant amount of time searching support and message boards to find out what the problem is, and evidently apple has been completely unresponsive to MANY similar complaints about this mouse.

    this was a complete waste of my money.

    Loses connection constantly

    • Written by from Watertown

    When it works, it's a great mouse. But it is overly sensitive and loses connection constantly. Then it takes minutes and minutes to get reconnected. It is a total pain. I would rather a wired mouse than this one. Waste of money.

    Don't drop it

    • Written by from Tempe

    The Apple Magic Mouse has so far proven to be a pain to use, primarily because of its bluetooth connection, which is tenuous in the extreme. Since its sensitivity is so low, I have to constantly pick up the mouse and set it back down on the mouse pad, and when I do so my Mac loses connection to it. And if you fumble and drop it off your desk, even onto a thickly carpeted floor like I have in my room, it will again lose connection. All of which would be fine if it would just reconnect no problem, but instead I have to wait 5 minutes while my computer searches for a mouse, and finally finally reconnects. Terrible for work, worthless for gaming.

    Never ever buy this mouse, get a logitech mouse instead. Way more expensive than it is worth.

    Do Not Buy!

    • Written by from La Crosse

    After approx. 1 month of use, the right click sensor in the mouse wore out. Product Quality is lacking it's former strength. This mouse is overpriced, and NOT worth the money.

    I have tried to like this mouse!

    • Written by from Warwick

    I have 3 of these and they all have the same "mind of it's own" issues. If you are a professional designer who still like to use a mouse this is not the mouse for you...it has too many glitches that cause me headaches in Photoshop and Illustrator.
    Sorry Apple you normally knock it out of the park but not with this product.

    Rechargeable batteries won't work?!

    • Written by from Toronto

    I bought this mouse a while ago, and I have some alcaline batteries and it worked fine. But I had to change them, and of course, it is essential to me that I can use rechargeable batteries. Well, they DO NOT work in this mouse!!! I tried two sets, and they worked perfectly in my other mouse (logitech, not apple) and my other electronic devices. How does that even make sense?? Anyway, I hope to speak to somebody about fixing this because if it won't work, I don't see the point of having a mouse with batteries if I can't use rechargeable ones. What a waste!
