    Connection Lost... Connected... Connection Lost... Connected...

    I mean, even if it wasn't for the constant FAILURE this mouse would still FAIL. I mean, you're supposed to be the most cutting-edge company on the planet and I'm replacing AA batteries every two weeks? Apple is Radio Shack with a better graphic design team.

    Not Good!

    • Written by from Maple

    Can't write the review due to sensorship. Trade it for a corded mouse. Thing doesn't work.

    First bad Apple product I've owned.

    • Written by from Encino

    I sought out this review section and I never write reviews. But I simply can NOT let this go. I've used this Beelzebub-designed product for over a year now and it has never stopped being anything but ATROCIOUS.

    Let's just not waste your time and run through the complaints.

    -Enjoy replacing the batteries at an insanely ridiculous rate, like faster than Data's Bullet Blinders from the Goonies.
    -Enjoy constant "magical" shortcuts that you are not anticipating or want. Like sending an email you weren't done with.
    -Enjoy the dock constantly moving to your second monitor at the drop of a hat.
    -Enjoy trying to view videos and whoops your hand grazed your mouse now everything went to Diablo and your quicktime can't tell if you're saying fast forward or reverse.
    -Enjoy "magically" swiping screens you were just on out of the blue which is really fun during live broadcasts.

    This thing is an overly-sensitive battery-sucking piece of garbage and you might as well need to know sign language to master everything. If you have big hands like me you're basically sentenced to an eternity of unintentional shortcuts. I work for a company that gives me no choice but to deal with this demon spawn and I absolutely gnash my teeth every day.

    Save yourselves. It's too late for me.

    First mouse to hurt my hand in 15 years

    • Written by from burbank

    I couldn't keep using this mouse it hurts my hand very much. I changed to other brand and now the pain is slowly going away. I wish I could leave just grey stars in the rating.

    Poor quality

    • Written by from Maggie Valley

    I've had this mouse for 2 years. I seldom use it but bought it to compliment the Bluetooth keyboard. It worked ok but I did get annoyed with the gestures. My problem with it is that it stopped working. It connects but will not move the cursor. I took it to the Apple Store and they wouldn't even look at it. Their solution? Buy a new one. They don't repair them only replace them. For $70 I expect it to last longer than 24 months of light use. I usually have good luck with Apple products but not this one. Basically you're just paying for the looks and the logo. Very disappointed. I'll be looking elsewhere for a replacement.

    substandard product

    • Written by from Shune De

    Yep, after reading the stellar reviews

    got the mouse, the second time I have been stupid enough to do this, obviously changed the battery contact design material, as the mouse KEEPS disconnecting and going dead every time it experiences slight vibration


    Battery connection design so bad it does not break any oxide layers on the battery contacts, who in their right mind makes a completely FLAT battery contact?

    Do not buy!! Take Magic Trackpad

    • Written by from New York

    Unpredictable, annoying mouse; changes safari pages by its self, do not mark properly, probably too sensitive. As of now the worst purchase at Apple (but the first one, other products are fine so long). The previous mouse was a way better.
    Take Magic Trackpad instead!!

    The most annoying mouse on the planet.

    • Written by from pinole

    I'm sorry I usually love apple products but this mouse came with my new iMac and I have to say for a graphic designer & video editor this is the worst purchase you could make. I have been forcing myself to try and adjust for the last month to using it and I just can't! There's one too many multitouch gestures/functions on the mouse and with the slightest touch they randomly become active. I have the worst time with drop down menus it randomly throws my web browser into "zoom" mode. And it took me forever to find out how to activate right click which to me should be a standard setting already applied to any mouse. The design of the mouse itself looks lovely. But feels terrible and bulky in your hand. The edges are not smooth. To be honest it feels like your holding a piece of raw edged plexiglass and even for a girl I have long fingers and the mouse doesn't fit into my hand the way i'd like it to. if this didnt come with my iMac I would be bringing it right back to ya'll I can't image someone purchasing this on it's own and being happy with it.

    terrible mouse

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    This could be the worst thing apple have ever created. Terrible mouse that doesn't work with most professional software, works well with the usual Mac teenager tools and apps.

    Won't Stay Connected

    • Written by from Los Alamos

    I've owned this mouse (and charger) now for almost two years, and aside from a few quirks have been generally pleased with its convenience and performance. I use it with my MacBook Pro when it sits in its desktop stand. Now, over the past few weeks, the mouse will not maintain its connection with the laptop. It loses the connection at least once every minute and usually more often. Sometimes in reconnects; sometimes it just won't reconnect. My Mac maintains other bluetooth connections without difficulty. The problem is solely with the Magic Mouse. I would not recommend this product. The 'Magic' is gone!

    Eats batteries like crazy - useless!

    • Written by from HAMPTON COVE

    This mouse goes through about 1 set of batteries every week or so - today I just put in NEW batteries and within 10 minutes it said batteries are at 5% and has started dropping the connection. How is that possible. Absolute waste of money!!! Can I give a minus stars rating???

    great first 4 years, then just a crock

    • Written by from BERKELEY

    MM's been working fine on my laminated desk surface for the first four years and then started getting more and more choppy. I've tried, as someone has suggested, stuffind paper in the battery compartment for a snug fit: it makes no difference. I've even bought a 3m special pad for $8. The only thing that works is the glossy surface of the package the 3M pad came in. Otherwise, the 3M pad produces absolutely 0 tracking. Go figure!
    I have an old MS USB mouse, and it works just fine, except that it's ugly and takes one USB port.
    By the way, I've just replaced my four-year-old MBP with the most recent model. Made no difference for the magic mouse.
    There is a person (persons) with the same problem on the Apple Forum, and Apple has not provided any answers.

    Lose connectivity

    • Written by from RALEIGH

    I have one at home and one for work. Both constantly lose connectivity. If you work a lot in PowerPoint for Mac, this mouse is very frustrating to work with, once touch and you fly 150 slides down the presentation. So for me, this mouse is really bad.

    If you like charging batteries daily, this is the mouse for you.

    • Written by from Portland

    Absolute junk. Can't hold a charge for more than a few hours compared to my Microsoft Mouse that holds a charge for weeks - maybe more than a month. The Apple Mouse, keyboard and trackpad are horrible products to be avoided. I am falling in love with my new PC more everyday that i have to put up with my over priced under performing Mac equipment. Don't waste your money on Apple. Take a look at the latest PCs. They are better in every way.

    Drops connection all the time - poor product

    • Written by from Henlow

    My first Magic Mouse was useful for about 3 weeks then it started dropping connection. I got a replacement mouse today - it is doing the same thing, only stays connected for 5 - 10 seconds. Very frustrating!

    Big hand - no way to run.

    • Written by from Minsk

    My hand is not so small and thus this mouse (that flat as xxxx) is not for me at all.
    P.S. And drivers.. - turtle speed without extra "Magic Mouse" software initially?! Are you kidding us?

    Batteries don't last

    • Written by from Newburgh

    I've had this mouse and computer for 4 months. Today I again needed to replace the battery. I've gone through 3 sets of batteries in 4 months. I don't use this for work as I'm retired. I give up. Back to corded mouse for me.

    Do not buy the apple mouse

    • Written by from Vancouver

    My parents bought me an apple computer with a wireless mouse.
    The computer is outstanding.
    The mouse is useless. It goes threw batteries like crazy.
    It is also very badly designed it is very uncomfortable for my hand when I use it.
