    Right clicking problem....

    • Written by from Manchester

    This mouse works well for the most part except for right clicking to copy/paste or search in google etc. after highlighting text.

    You highlight the text easy enough, but then right clicking for the next step takes 4-5 tries. Brought back the mouse and got a another one but the same thing.... Not good.

    A Magical Mouse

    • Written by from Santa Isabel

    I got the MagicMouse on January 13, 2010. With its beautifully crafted design, no mechanical parts as apposed to other laser mouse with scrolling wheal. It’s very flat and it can be uncomfortable to some people as apposed to other mouse that are heigh to fill your palm.

    It takes a bit of time getting used to it, but once you do, you realize why it has such a sleek design. The entire surface has sensors that can react to gestures. Back, forward with two fingers, right click and left click and circular gestures.

    Be careful when you put it in your bag, it may get scratches. It should had come with a small soft material bag to protect it when on the road.

    Overall, it’s the best mouse I have ever owned and the most expensive too, but its worth every penny

    Seamless, easy to use

    • Written by from Cambridge

    I was really excited when I first got this mouse, literally turned it on and it worked with my MacBook Pro right away. I like the scrolling and multi gesture recognition, it makes whatever I'm doing easy and fast. It also looks amazing on my desk :P

    Very well made, but not without disadvantages

    • Written by from charleston

    The new Magic Mouse is incredibly well made. I really love the multitouch capability and smooth built-in left/right click single button. The tracking is also very reliable on almost any surface, and battery usage is good (its nice being able to check the charge percent on the menu bar).

    However, the Magic Mouse is not perfect. Although it is designed to work smoothly on any surface, it makes a lot of noise on wood... meaning you still need a mousepad. Also, the single-button miltitouch is beautiful, and works well, but I still miss the third middle button and fourth side buttons. Without them, I've been forced to use keyboard shortcuts, which work fine, but don't quite keep the smooth feeling of power you get when you can make precise changes using only the mouse.

    Also, I'm slightly unsure wether the Magic mouse will work completely with bootcamp's Windows 7 and Vista... it doesn't say anywhere, and I'm worried that if/when I get Windows on Bootcamp the mouse will stop working and I'll be forced to buy another one. However, Apple probably built in a windows functionality, so hopefully it will still work.

    MAGIC MOUSE REVIEW

    • Written by from washigition

    I really like this mouse it is probably the best mouse I used or will every use. But the battery life is poor if you don't use rechargeable batteries. If you do use rechargeable batteries it is amazing.

    Good so far

    • Written by from Savage

    I've been using the new Magic Mouse for a day and have to say that it lives up to its billing. It could be better by incorporating more of the multitouch functions that are already a part of the macbook touchpad and iphone OS. The zoom function is lame--it should zoom within the application, not the screen view! Flick scrolling does not seem to be working (or present) either. I'm using Leopard OS...supported on Snow? Also lacking multi-button customizability; this is not a big issue, but forces more keyboard use vs the old mighty

    Overall, it's a great mouse and I imagine that the software and technology will continue to advance. Apple missed a few obvious features in this initial offering.

    Even on fast, it's slow

    • Written by from Columbia

    I've got tracking maxed out (fast as it will go) and it's still slower than I'd like.

    If I put my Targus Laser Mouse for Mac on the fastest setting, it's uncontrollable it's so fast. Therefore, it allows you to get your speed really dialed in. Back it off just a tick or two and you're set. So, Targus' tracking is good but I didn't like it's hair-trigger like scrolling (especially horizontal scrolling). That's what made me reach for the Magic Mouse.

    Other than that, Magic Mouse looks good, scrolls nicely, and operates well. Just be advised, if you've got a big screen or you're like me and just like fast, responsive tracking you won't be able to get it from this mouse.

    Amazing product!!!!

    • Written by from Montreal

    I received that thing yesterday and I was kind of skeptical about it at first but once you get the hang of it... it's simply amazing. The controls are very accurate and the mouse if fun to ply with. The only down side to it would be the weight but it's not such a big deal since I was using the wireless mighty mouse for a while and I also wished they would have let me control the speed of the scrolling but once again, this is not a big issue with me. One other thing I wished they would have done is a rechargeable dock or something. If you want to turn "green" you cannot continue to make wireless products and force people to buy batteries all the time. With a rechargeable dock, this would have been the perfect item

    Pretty Dang Cool

    • Written by from Kew Gardens

    Folks' preference in mice are subjective, so what I like might not be what you need. I liked the standard Apple Mouse but I wanted right-click capability since i use Windows at work with a right-click mouse. I could never get used to those side buttons on the Apple Mouse. Finally, I really enjoy the finger swiping and natural feel of the iPhone and Macbooks' touch pads. I also wanted to get a Bluetooth mouse to reduce desk clutter and free up a USB port.

    So this mouse does it for me. It's not perfect, I wish it were about 10-20% larger to fit my hand better but that's a minor issue compared to the features, responsiveness and more liquid feel.

    This mouse COULD be excellent...

    • Written by from Grand Rapids

    ...if it had a cord. I replace the batteries every two months, on average. I don't WANT to use batteries at all, standard or rechargeable. Bring back the cord!

    Second: I would like to control vertical and horizontal scrolling independently. It would be great to be able to turn off horizontal scrolling and leave vertical turned on.

    Excellent tracking, top-quality construction, great design, and the ability to stymie PC users who can't imagine right-clicking without a separate button.

    Mighty Mouse

    • Written by from Ontario

    It took awhile to get used to. What I didn't like is when I drag it on my desk it made too much noise from the desk surface. I had to get a mouse pad to soften the scratching sound from my desk and now I'm happy.

    I haven't any issues with it and I would recommend it.

    3D Modelling and VFX (Maya2011 / After Effects CS5)

    • Written by from Armadale

    This mouse is simply amazing, lets be honest the most common reason this mouse appeals to people is its looks and I was almost turned off buying it due to the lack of 3rd Mouse Button.
    I'm a VFX Artist and do a lot of work in Autodesk Maya, 3Ds Max and Adobe After Effects. For those familiar with these programs know theres a lot demand for the 3rd Mouse Button and a lot of us in the field have been turned off the magic mouse for this exact reason. Well with a little research and determination I refused to settle and have a high priced MacPro with no such mouse to compliment it, well now I've found BetterTouchTool. It allows you to add gestures to your MagicMouse allowing for the 3rd Mouse Button and alot more.

    I hope this wins over a lot of buyers in the field of 3D and VFX for this mouse amazing and no one should miss out.

    Great Mouse but eats batteries for every meal

    • Written by from Bonita Springs

    Best mouse I've ever used and i'm on my 8th Mac.

    Can't seem to get more than 3 weeks from any batteries though, either fresh Duracells or Energizers from the store or 2 types of rechargeable batteries. Right now I'm having the best luck with Imedion rechargeables from Powerex. The shortest time was 8 days.

    I love it...

    • Written by from Edmonton

    But it's battery life is abysmal. I installed two brand new Energizer rechargeables on the 6th of January and they lasted exactly 23 days. So keep two sets of rechargeable batteries on hand so you have a replacement set when they run out of juice.

    It's also very sensitive and takes a bit of getting used to. But overall, I love this little mouse!

    Awesome mouse but doesn't stay connected

    • Written by from Carlsbad

    I have to leave it turned on when I put my MacBook to sleep, otherwise it won't reconnect when I wake my computer back up. Unfortunately this wastes the batteries and I've had to replace them 3 times in the last 3 months. The only way to reconnect it (if I turn it off) is to restart my computer. Other than that, it's the most awesome mouse I've ever had.

    It’s Good Not Great ;)

    • Written by from Roma

    The mouse has an awesome design, don’t listen to the people that say things about ergonomics, this mouse is as comfortable as any other mouse.
    Iv’e had it for about 6 months now and I’m still amazed by its simplicity and beautiful design.
    The only problems with it are that sometimes the cursor is very slow but then fixes to my default settings. And also, the batteries don’t last so much for me.
    But if you are looking to buy this, its a great product and remember that apple can fix these little issues with software updates ;)

    The truth to the Magic Mouse!

    • Written by from Vassar

    I have read many of the reviews about the Magic Mouse and I believe that some things need to be cleared up about it. First off, I struggled for a long time if i wanted to purchase the mouse, from some of the reviews I read, it seemed that it was not worth the $70+ for it, but finally I caved. I am a student going into photography and graphic design and I was concerned on how it would work with aperture 3.

    The magic mouse is great. In other reviews, they say that the swipe and tracking are unresponsive and sluggish. I feel i should just clarify that it takes three minutes to fix this problem. You must go to the system preference and then to mouse. From there, you can change the tracking and settings of the mouse. It is an absolute dream to use if aperture 3. Swiping through photos and editing is far greater with the mouse than with a logitech mouse or a different brand. All though the reason this is not a five star mouse is because of the shape. It takes a little getting used to, but it is worth the buy. So if you are in my situation, not knowing to buy the mouse or not, run to the store and buy it now!

    Apple Magic Mouse perfect for my MacBook Pro

    • Written by

    I just read the comment of some visitor about the fact that the Magic Mouse have a bad performance in combination with his MacBook Pro, but to tell u honestly.... I don't face that problem at all. I connect a USB mouse and try to find any differences... nothing! Both fast and the tracking perfect! I use Mac OS X version 10.6.3.

    The only point I don't like... bit heavy in use due to the 2 AA batteries. That should be done much better by for instance using AAA-batteries. But ok, perhaps next version of the Magic Mouse?

    Regards and good luck with us mouse...

    Great!

    • Written by from Belvidere

    Just as everyone said... it's great. However, battery life could be a bit better. Other than that, I love it. Especially with using BetterTouchTool -- which is free -- it customizes multitouch gestures on the Magic Mouse that it is capable of but Apple doesn't use it's functionality. That application unlocks it. Just google it... it's out there, very common. Love it!

    it's very Apple.

    • Written by from jakarta

    i'm a designer. i use mouse for working, & my favorite was the Logitech VX470. Then i decided to try the MM. the accuracy & the multi touch is wonderful. i installed MagicPrefs, and it was even better. the low profile takes a MAJOR getting used to, but i think it's worth it.
