    Surprised by all the positive reviews

    • Written by from Northridge

    I am surprised by all the positive reviews. The connection is lost every few minutes which makes working with Excel sheets a nightmare. I continually need to wait until the mouse connects again. Will be returning to the the standard mouse so that I can finish my work without swearing every 3 minutes

    Eats batteries

    • Written by from Ste. Anne

    This is a very good product except for the fact that it eats batteries at least 5 times as much as my microsoft mouse.

    Completely Unreliable

    • Written by from HUNTINGTON BEACH

    I loved this mouse so much that when my first one stopped working after a year (and yes, the batteries were fully charged) I purchased a new one. Now, less than a year into the new one, it has completely stopped working as well. While it appears to be connected and fully charged according to my system preferences, and it does scroll, when moving the mouse on the pad, nothing happens. Same exact issue I had with the first one. I love the functionality of this mouse, and since I have small hands it is much more comfortable than the regular mouse. They are just way too expensive to keep replacing every year!

    Best Mouse !

    • Written by from Seattle

    Beautiful, functional and smooth. Make my every day laptop experience so much more pleasurable and pleasant.

    It is a successful challenge to the traditional pattern of thinking. It even teaches you how to intelligently move your body. And yes, we actually do not need any buttons to feel an illusionary sense of control, just let it go, my friend !

    Best Mouse!

    Superb!

    • Written by from Quincy

    I hesitated to buy this mouse due to the negative experience I had with Mighty Mouse, but it has exceeded my expectations. The design is comfortable, elegant and, most importantly, eminently functional. If a mouse could be intuitive, this is it. At first, I didn't think it could right click, which I missed, but you can enable that feature in your system preferences, making it perfect. Thanks, Apple!

    Disconnects by the slightest bump

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    The mouse disconnects by the slightest bump. I've tried both normal batteries and the inductive batterypack; both has the same problem. So now I have a wired mouse next to it so I can quickly go to a terminal and run "blueutil off" followed by "blueutil on".

    If I were Apple, I'd solder a reasonably sized capacitor in parallel with the batteries. I looked at the dissection at ifixedit and concluded I would not manage to get it back in one piece if i tried this myself.

    So why three stars and not one? Because when it works it's totally brilliant and I feel handicapped when it's discharged or if I forget it somewhere. Programmed gestures to switch virtual desktop is alone worth its price.

    A complete waste of money!

    • Written by from Decatur

    I had this mouse for a couple of days, and it started to hurt my hand. On top of that, it is so unbelievably unreliable and will disconnect randomly. It's just a gimmick, in my opinion.

    the most disappointing product apple has ever made

    • Written by from Shiloh

    Could be phenomenal, but... like so many here have said, the lag and stuttering makes me want to throw it against the wall. I don't have disconnects, but, everytime anything that happens in the background (drive access, wireless access, etc) occurs this thing just stutters and spits and doesn't move or moves randomly. They really need to address this. I wish I could get my money back. I loved my mouse with my wacom tablet, but those suffer from other dependabilty issues (switch bounce)

    Counterproductive for Graphic Designers

    • Written by from Milwaukee

    When I bought the Magic Mouse, the main thing I was excited about was the touch side-scrolling. For any designer who works in Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign at length, easy side-scrolling makes for an incredible, uninterrupted workflow. However, the shape of the mouse ended up impeding my workflow instead of helping it.

    As I tried to grip the mouse and side-scroll around my artboards, I would inevitably touch the top edge of the mouse's surface with my thumb or ring-finger, which would jump the cursor all around the screen (trying to avoid this resulted in hand-cramps). I've since switched back to using my cheap, plastic two buttons-and-a-wheel mouse. At least it's reliable.

    My side scrolling dreams were totally defeated by the sexy-but-unusable shape of the Magic Mouse. I would not recommend it to professional designers or digital artists.

    Magic Mouse 6 Month Review

    • Written by from Asheville

    This mouse is the best and worst mouse ever. When it works it is incredible; like a touchpad on top of a mouse....great. The bad part is when it gives up randomly and screws up your whole day to try and reestablish a bluetooth mouse when you don't have a working mouse. I have tried new batteries and everything. It just sometimes stops and won't come on. Then it will stay off for 3 days and then decide to turn back on. For these reasons I have to give the Magic Mouse only 1 star. Even if it is awesome, whats the use if it is totally unreliable.

    Wonderful mouse!

    • Written by from Montreal

    I really like the Magic Mouse. I got it by purchasing an used iMac, and I really like it! I like the two finger swipe feature to switch between apps. However, in gestures it's inferior to the Magic Trackpad. You can't open the Notification Center nor the Launchpad, and the two-finger double tap to open Mission Control is a bit hard to do. The two-finger swipe up would be better. A bit uncomfortable too, but a big improvement over the previous Mighty Mouse. Definitely worth the upgrade for any Mac user.

    Great mouse!

    I love this device!

    • Written by from Reno

    I have an older IMac and the mouse stopped scrolling. I replaced the stock optical mouse with this Blue Tooth enabled mouse. I love how useful this device is. You can place the mouse where it is comfortable then let your fingers do the work. You can scroll, swipe between pages and click simply with a touch of your finger. Wonderful.

    MY ARM HURTS

    • Written by from Ann Arbor

    As much as I'd like to say that I like this mouse because of the cool gestures, I really can't. 5 minutes with this mouse and I have wrist and forearm pain...this is the first time I've ever experienced anything of the sort in my 20some years of hardcore computer use. It is pretty clear to me that ergonomics didn't come into mind when designing this mouse. Fashion won over function apparently. I'm going to put this thing back in the box and buy myself a nice, comfy Logitech mouse. To go along with my Logitech solar powered keyboard. Apple, you need to work on your peripherals. Nobody wants wrist/arm pain, and nobody wants to change batteries. Period.

    Great mouse - but loses connection repeatedly

    • Written by from Yellowknife

    I like this mouse but it constantly loses connection with my MacPro. Very frustrating when you're on a deadline and have to repeatedly stop and wait for the connection to be re-established.

    Wrist pain

    • Written by from Geneva

    I've never had hand/wrist problems with computer use in my life until I started using this mouse. I've been using it at work for a couple of months now, I kept thinking I just needed to get used to it, but time is up. It's just evil.

    Can get very annoying

    • Written by from la puente

    Sometimes the right click doesn't work and if you are using After Effects or Premiere, prepare to get annoyed with the random zooming. This mouse is perfect for browsing back and forth between web pages because of its swipe feature.
