    Junk

    • Written by from Hope

    The mouse came with my 1 year old iMac 27",i love that computer to death,but when it comes to that so acclaimed magic mouse...What a piece of junk that thing is.I'm glad it came with the computer and i didn't have to spend 69$for it.The major problem is connectivity,it simply quits working even with brand new batteries in it.When you play games,it can be very frustrating having to switch the mouse on and off a few times to regain connection.I simply had enough of that hi tech thing and went on craiglist to find an old usb cable apple mouse that works like a charm.The magic mouse ended up magically flying across the room and colliding violently with the opposite wall and blowing into small tiny pieces...There goes apple engineering.

    absolute junk

    • Written by from South Pasadena

    This is the second apple magic mouse in one year, that has completely quit. I change the batteries and it simply does not go back on. Tried multiple batteries. I replaced the first one at the crazy price apple charges, and five months later, it just stops. One would assume that since it is one of the priciest mouses on the market the quality would be great. No so. I still love apple, but they are making it harder and harder to love them, over time. God, I miss Steve Jobs!

    reliable connection from up to 33 feet away? Totally bogus

    • Written by from Portland

    I recently purchased this mouse from Apple along with a new mini for my home theater setup thinking I would receive a "reliable connection from up to 33 feet away". My surfing sofa is 13 feet away with an unobstructed line-of-sight to the mini. Occasionally from 13 feet I actually do receive a normal mouse like experience, however 95% of the time it is what must be like surfing on quaaludes. You know, you move the cursor and 2 seconds later it moves, or a slight touch to scroll results in either light speed to the top or to the bottom of the page. I am typing this review from 7 feet away and it works flawlessly, but........APPLE, IT IS NOT FROM 33 FEET OR ANYTHING CLOSE TO THAT AND IT WORKS LIKE THE KIND OF STUFF I PICK UP AFTER MY DOG. I do not want to have to spend time and energy taking this back to the happy concerned faces at the local Mac store. That is not part of the grand bargain which is..... you tell the truth in your marketing and I buy your products, we both win and I do not find myself writing unpleasant reviews. Incidentally, this is the second of 2 wireless mice I have purchased from Apple. The first one with the little cute roller ball that gums up did not work either.

    Poor design, expensive to operate

    • Written by from Lake Jackson

    I have a very hard time controlling the movement of the cursor with this mouse. There is no control for allowing it to respond to more subtle movements. My cursor jerks around the screen, whizzes to the end of long documents and catalogs of photos when my hand barely touches the device. Totally uncontrollable. And, yes, I have looked at all the possible settings. There are none that help.

    Moreover, this mouse eats batteries. They last an unbelievably short time even when I turn it off between each session. My last set of Duracell alkaline "Ultra Power" batteries lasted less than 60 days. I feel certain that this mouse is either not functioning as it should or is just a poor design from the start. I hate to waste money at the Apple Store. I expect to get the best there. I did not in the case of this product.

    Looks nice, feels nice, but is a pain in the you know what!

    • Written by from Cody

    While this mouse is great due to its bluetooth connection, the battery life is so short and thus too frequently it losses connectivity. Doesn't seem to matter if one turns it off in between use. Come on, Apple, you can do much better!

    Horrible Product

    • Written by from Denver

    I love apple products, but this is the worst experience I have ever had. The battery life is horrible and it takes a very long time to register the mouse when you turn on/wake up the computer. I usually get a message that says a mouse has not been detected and then it will finally detect it. I do not advise buying this product. I am very disappointed that apple would make such a horrible product.

    Constantly disconnecting

    I have had problems since I got it. It's fine when it works but it stops working at 10% battery & has had trouble connecting since I got it out of the box.

    Apple Magic Mouse

    • Written by from Fort McMurray

    Did not like this mouse at all!! Had high hopes for it because I absolutely LOVE my MacBook Pro.. It was slow and the mouse hardly moved around the screen.. I thought it was because of the surface I was on but I moved to several different surfaces and it was the same for all of them, not happy because the mouse is expensive too!

    Don't waste your money!!!

    • Written by from East Wenatchee

    This mouse is horrible. It looks pretty, I'll give it that, but theres not much else to say for it.

    The surface on the bottom of the mouse is horrible, makes a scraping noise on whatever surface you use the mouse on.

    No dark field laser, so can't use it on a glass desk without a mousepad.

    Ergonomically it is horrendous - will certainly cause carpal tunnel in no time.

    You can't rest your hand on the mouse like you can with normal mice. If you do, you will get sporadic scrolling and zooming. This requires you to basically hold your whole arm up in the air to operate the mouse. Even resting a single finger on the mouse will cause random scrolling issues.

    20% of the time the scrolling doesn't even respond for a few seconds.

    Overall this mouse is plain unsafe to use, unless of course you like chronic pain in your arm for the rest of your life.

    Buy a magic trackpad instead, they're great!

    With Acceleration = 1 Star VS. Without Acceleration = 5 Stars

    • Written by from Cambridge

    The fact that this mouse does not allow users to turn off the "acceleration" component makes it virtually useless for 99% of users. That 1% would likely only be comprised of monks and people who have never experienced a traditional mouse without acceleration.

    It's not like when Apple released the MacBook Air - where everyone complained of the missing optical drive before realizing that they no longer needed it. (Although if you want to make that analogy, let us not forget that Apple at least gives users the option to purchase an optical drive add-on). This is more analogous to when Apple released their version of the internet with Apple e-World in order to compete with AOL. It failed. Apple pulled the plug on e-World and opted to instead develop a Mac client for AOL.

    We're not asking that you pull the plug on the acceleration aspect of the Mac, just that you give us the ability to choose a non-accelerating option.

    It's definitely magical!

    • Written by from New York

    Oh so magical…

    While using Google Maps, it magically zooms in and out all the time. Even when you don't want it to! (Especially when you don't want it too!)

    Pages and windows are magically swiped away when you least expect it.

    I wish my magic mouse could magically take me back in time to when I bought my MacPro and make me decide not get it. It's way too sensitive to touch and does stuff you don't want it to all the time. Unless you are really, really careful, Google Maps is unusable with this mouse.

    Other than that, it's great.

    Amazing...if it's working

    • Written by from Carlsbad

    Multi touch features are obviously incredible and it's a pleasure to use. However, if you use it for about a year it just stops working. It seems to be made cheaply and I would really expect a lot more from an apple product. This mouse is a great idea but it is built at a quality worth half of what they are selling it for. Unless you are willing to replace this mouse annually, get a different one.

    About half of the total reviews give this mouse 1 star because the mouse doesn't work within the first year.

    No reliability

    • Written by from Tangerang Selatan

    at first, i was amazed with this magic mouse, less than a year it was broken. Since i like it, i bought myself a new one, but it was broken again, less than six months, and cannot be fixed. Come on this is a good product, put some reliability on it...

    Horrible mouse.

    • Written by from CENTERVILLE

    This mouse is horrible and so frustrating. It looses connection constantly and interrupts my work all day long as there is no mouse-to-computer communication when it happens. It takes some jiggling, waiting, begging and fancy footwork to get it to connect again. It also slides my pages around the computer without me doing it. All of a sudden my page is swiped away. Often I can get it back; sometimes I cannot. This is a huge time waster as is the connection issue. I would return it but the cord is too short on my only other (Apple) mouse and I can't go without a mouse right now so I am stuck with it. What a waste of money. I do not recommend this product at all.

    Worthless piece of junk.

    • Written by from La Honda

    This bluetooth mouse isn't worth the money I paid for it. It constantly looses connection (in use no more than 12 inches from my Mac Mini). I have changed the battery numerous times. Turned it off, turned it on, swiped it on different surfaces. Nothing helps. I've gone back to using the USB mouse I had before. Thank goodness I didn't toss that.

    S*#t Product

    • Written by from Richmond

    The 'magic' mouse is S&#T! My iMac is almost two years old, and this weekend is the FOURTH time I will be going back to Apple to have it replaced. Lucky (if one could call it that) the first three were replaced free of charge by Apple here in Sydney. Keeps cutting off even with fresh batteries, very frustrating. Using my old corded mouse for now, helluva' lot better.

    Magic mouse

    • Written by from Aguadilla

    I have used up to date 2 magic mouse. Like other users have also shared, this mouse works great but both of mine have stopped working before a year of use. The mouse is expensive to be replacing it every year. Also when it does work it tends to disconnect frequently and this is a very frustration situation. I don't know if the track pad is better or not but I will be trying that next or use an aftermarket mouse to do the job.
