    Takes a bit of getting used to

    • Written by from Belleville

    Yes, it's definitely the coolest mouse ever; but if you set it up in 2-button mode, it's very easy to click the left button when you're trying to click the right, or vice versa. In other words, the boundary between the 2 "buttons" is ill-defined -- a minor but significant annoyance -- which is why it gets 4 stars instead of 5 -- but not significant enough to keep me from using it daily, or recommending it. I have two, actually -- one for office, one for home, since I schlep my Macbook back and forth.

    Great Mouse!

    • Written by from Ottawa

    This is an amazing mouse. Its slim and simple design makes it great for my small hands.

    My only issue is battery consumption. I have to change the batteries, approximately every eight weeks. This is a bit excessive.

    Final Cut Pro users.

    I love the sensitivity of the mouse and have mine set up for a two button system for editing. Takes a couple of goes to get used to the multi directional swiping. I've found that I've ended up jogging through footage unwillingly or through the timeline thanks to an accidental swipe. This is my own fault for sure, but it does happen and when you're in the editing zone it can get on your nerves.

    Sleek looking, works really well and the batteries lasts for a good couple of months before they need a change.

    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.

    Incredible Mouse but too delicate

    • Written by from Killam

    Probably the best mouse out there. However, far too fragile to justify replacement costs. I dropped it harmlessly less than three feet from my desk to the floor, and now the entire right side has lost resiliency and ceases to be a "button." A conditioned Apple mouse user such as myself, I have my right click turned off and all of my primary clicks are to the center of the mouse. Readjusting to the left side is going to be a bit of a pain, and I'll probably have to replace it with something less expensive.

    I love this mouse. but it isnt the best for bigger hands. the amazing thinness is kind of hard to make something productive out of it. My hand is getting tired as i use it. But it is still the best mouse i have owned

    This mouse is AMAZING. Perfect for scrolling. I miss the side buttons that were on the Mighty Mouse but I soon learned to move on. The battery dies out pretty quickly, so be sure to get rechargeable's if you want to save some cash.

    Nice once you get used to it

    • Written by from Alexandra Hills

    I'll admit that when I first got it, I considered sending it back as I didn't like the feel or use. It just seemed less precise than the trackpad and the whole gesture thing turned me off, despite the amount of customisation I changed!

    Now I wouldn't even think about using any other mouse! Beautiful product and great concept.

    If you buy it and think about returning it, just keep using and you'll love it as much as I do!

    no more problems with the scroll wheel! Hooray!
    I do miss the center button, however. How can we get a center button function?

    Great Mouse! Great Buy!!!!!

    • Written by from Gilbert

    The mouse uses double A batteries which is a BIG thing for me because they are cheaper for me. Very light and slender so it can fit in my computer bag. It is a bit pricy but i think it is worth it. I say it is a great buy and a great replacement for non apple mice!

    Brilliant, but more shortcuts would be better

    • Written by

    When you first come by this mouse; absolutely brilliant. The multi touch surface and laser tracking is more than 2 buttons and a scroll wheel. but once you come by the apple mouse, things change. The magic mouse just isn't that convinient

    Great Mouse!

    • Written by from Saint Marys

    I received this mouse as a gift. I was very used to my logitech mouse and don't like to change my mouse often. Unfortunately the logitech mouse started to fail, so I pulled out the Apple Magic Mouse. After playing around with it and seeing what it can do with the "track pad" on top of the mouse for scrolling, turning pictures, and navigating through webpages I fell in love with it. I have not had any problems with the mouse hurting my hands like others have said. It is quite comfortable, and I love the design and sleekness of it. I also game with it. The only challenge is getting used to properly using the second mouse click. You need to pick up your index finger to get the second click to work.

    hurts my hand after long-term use

    • Written by from Algona

    I started using this mouse because it came with my iMac. I can right-click, scroll, swipe and click just fine.

    However, I'm going to go back to using my logitech mouse because it is more ergonomic and fits into my hand. Unlike my old mouse, your hand is never in contact with the mouse.

    The bottom line: if the mouse didn't come with my computer and I had to pay $70.00 for it, I wouldn't. My hand (especially fingers) is in pain from using it.

    Scroll feature is a bit jumpy.

    Scroll feature is a bit jumpy and not smooth as I expected. Other than that the rest of it's functions work well.

    Likable, despite its flaws!

    • Written by

    The mouse definitely succeeds in its appearance and features, but like all products, it doesn't come without its flaws. The mouse is definitely a unique tool to use. While other reviews do say it does not take the natural shape of your hand, I don't think its something to be too concerned about. The right click option is a bit unresponsive, but if you hold down your finger rather than tapping, it should respond fine. In terms of acceleration, I do wish that it had a faster track speed, as I am a gamer.

    Despite this, all these flaws are relatively minor compared to the overall impact of using the product. While the mouse does have flaws, keep in mind the advantages. It has an elegant appearance and ground breaking inertia-capable motion detection. For normal computer users, you shouldn't have a problem. For gamers and others who may desire an unusually fast track speed, this is still the fastest track speed mouse I've come across.

    P.S. - If your mouse settings are uncomfortable, adjustments can be found in 'System Preferences'.

    the magic mouse is a great mouse, sleek, smooth, great. The only thing I don't like about it is you have to place it on a hard, non- soft surface; it not only makes a big noise, but it also damages the metal beams.

    A huge step forward and a minor step back from the Mighty Mouse.

    • Written by from independence

    The good - Extremely comfortable in the hand, tracks on almost any surface with ease, very stylish, and has the perfect weight with it's batteries installed.

    The bad - the touch surface is extremely sensitive - almost too sensitive at times. The built-in software for OS X doesn't exploit all of the capability of this mouse, and there's no way to edit the default gestures.

    The review -

    I had a Wireless Mighty Mouse (you know, the one with the scroll ball). After getting a jammed-up scroll ball for the 150th time, Genius Bar swapped me to the Magic Mouse. Brought it home, set it up, and found it much more comfortable to use. Scrolling is much more responsive than on the previous mouse, and the added inertia scroll is a nice feature.

    Where the mouse falls short of the 5th star is software. While it does go through batteries a little faster than the Mighty Mouse did, it's not horrendously bad about it like other high performance wireless and bluetooth mice are (I'm looking at you, Logitech). However, this mouse is so much more capable of gesture recognition than Apple gives it credit for. With the Mouse Software Update 1.0, you get 2 finger swiping for forward and back. 3rd party tools give you much more functionality than this, including the ability use the top of the mouse as a trackpad or a remote for your favorite media programs (VLC, Boxee, XBMC, Front Row, iTunes...)

    Add the built-in ability for this mouse to have more functionality and I'll give it 5 stars. Until then, I'm staying with 4.
