    Junk

    • Written by from NORFOLK

    It's not clear from scanning the reviews how long people have owned this mouse. In my experience, it loses connection more and more over time. I have to wait in frustration until it reconnects. It always has fresh batteries. The metal back has come off so many times that I just leave it off. However attractive, I have ditched this mouse for a good old fashion plug in.

    constanlty mucks up!

    • Written by from kailua kona

    60% of the time that I hit on the mouse, left,front,back,center etc, during a game or using for everyday click, it RIGHT clicks and opens up Options instead of doing what it should. I despise this mouse but it was included in my newest iMac purchase and the mouse is pure rubbish.

    Horrible

    • Written by from San Antonio

    I'm on my second "Magic Mouse" and it again doesn't work well. It constantly disconnects from the computer (while in use), the right button works intermittently, it eats batteries, has unsteady tracking, and scrolls erratically. The first "Magic Mouse" had the same problems until it just stopped working. My wife has a "Magic Mouse" and it too has similar problems. My circa 2006 USB Apple Mouse works better than the "Magic Mouse".

    Annoying

    • Written by from Bedford

    I've had this mouse for over a year now, ever since I bought my iMac. It's a cool mouse, cool functions but every now and then Ill move my hand away barely touching the mouse and it'll move my whole screen. Thats not even the annoying part. The mouse constantly disconnects from my computer when Im using it, full batteries and everything. I have to sit here clicking away until it reconnects, it happens all the time. Sorry Apple, I'll be getting a new mouse with better bluetooth capabilities.

    Garbage

    • Written by from Baton Rouge

    I titled this"Garbage," because that is where my my "magic mouse" is. And not the first one, the second one. These things are cheap, and they are garbage. I wish I could have my $140 back. Apple should be ashamed for putting this product out. And I am NOT tough on equipment, these are just poorly made. Save your money and use the touchpad. It is a good indicator of quality that Apple won't let me use the word C.R.A.P. in this review. What are they worried about?

    Very Painful, Love/ Hate Relationship

    • Written by from Brookhaven

    The best mouse ever...I HATE IT.
    Great features, works flawlessly. It's a shame I can't use it, it hurts my wrist and forearm after about 10 minutes of use. I have tried the Track Pad and found some issues with that too. It's a shame, my first experience with having an Apple computer and I'm very disappointed , I may try the older wired one that I have seen in the Apple store , I really want to use an Apple mouse on my iMac so I'm not giving up, I refuse to use any of my older PC stuff on my Mac....The search is on

    Geez! What happened to dependability?

    • Written by from American Canyon

    I am very disappointed that after a year, my MM's laser tracking is not responding. I had to pull out my 2002 wired mouse to bail me out! Seriously Apple! $75 for a product that has not endurance. SMH!!! I will try to get a replacement (free) from Apple. Stay posted on outcome.

    Perfect daily driver

    • Written by from China grove

    This mouse is perfect for your everyday needs. Do not buy the Mobee Magic Charger for this mouse because the battery pack they send you makes the mouse disconnect quite frequently and is very aggravating. The only downside of this mouse is that i play a lot of games like Gary's Mod or WOW and you will need another mouse with dedicated left and right click buttons for you to be happy. Other than that this is a great mouse I use everyday and well worth the money because of the gestures you can use on it.

    Absolutely awesome mouse, instead of working with Photoshop

    • Written by from Veliko Tarnovo

    Really love it the design, the multi-touch features. It's great for everything, but Photoshop. If you're like me working with precise scrolling then this one is not for you.

    Best Mouse

    • Written by from Cape Broyle

    I don't know why people say it is uncomfortable it's awesome! The tracking is great, very fast but you can adjust that. Multitouch is great! Overall best mouse yet! Try one out at a best buy or apple store near you.

    Bad.....

    • Written by from South Mills

    If I scroll down, 70% of the time it will swipe back.

    This mouse drains batteries in 5-10 days.

    After about a week, even though this should last longer, the mouse dies in the middle of Logic Pro use.....

    Looks great wish it worked with the iPhone 5!

    • Written by from White Plains

    Have my new iPhone 5 works great only problem is the carpel tunnel I'm getting in both hands from holding with one and typing or clicking with the other. I'm nearsighted and the display is great without my glasses if I hold it up close but unfortunately this appears to be just right to mess up both hands. If I could use a mouse with my wrist strait it would help greatly. But unfortunately that's not to be since apple has decided otherwise and you can't even use an aftermarket Bluetooth mouse with it. Very disappointed in an otherwise impressive product .

    Too Sensitive

    • Written by from Boston

    I've been trying for over a year to get used to this mouse. It's too sensitive and will bounce me back a page when I just graze the surface of it. This is insanely frustrating when you have to retype all your data. I am going to look for the old, reliable, corded mouse tomorrow because this one makes me feel like crushing it with a giant boulder.

    Better for desktops.

    • Written by from Racine

    This mouse is pretty awesome, I haven't had any trouble with it really, but for a company that prides itself on good design, this has a catch or two.

    I see other reviewers have complained about the comfort, and I agree with that. I also saw someone say something about getting rid of the mouse mat, and indeed this is also true from experience. I find that a solid plain wooden desk or table works best, doesn't seem to leave scratches or anything. That said, if you have any Macbook, I wouldn't bother buying this. If you're on the go and rarely sitting at a proper table or desk (me), you will probably grow to hate it quickly. It's impossible to find good surfaces to use, and pert near impossible to 'palm' this mouse-- move it by squeezing your palm around the edges and picking it up. That's a comfort issue as well. If I were to buy an iMac, yes, I would love to have it. And I would recommend it. But it's also true that Apple's trackpads are without equal, they are just not quite good enough for gaming. It just seems a tad redundant to have a Magic Trackpad alongside a Macbook.

    I would recommend Logitech's M570 wireless trackball to pair with the Macbook, they are wonderful! But as Macbooks only have TWO USB PORTS, it's something of a pain if you leave the receiver in at all times. And it smacks of dirty pool, basically goading people into using bluetooth for distance interfacing, mice and keyboards which have poorer battery life and signal strength than standard 2.4ghz wireless. Just awful. Is it really so much to ask for just ONE more USB in Macbooks??

    Apple, you guys are awesome, but sometimes "forward thinking" does not do a lick of good for the here and now!

    Solid product

    • Written by from Hopkins

    This is a great mouse. Less moving parts than other mouses means the scroll wheel won't break down. The Bluetooth is handy as well, although you'll run through the batteries.

    Make sure to have a good surface to use it on, otherwise tracking performance might suffer.

    Overall an Amazing Mouse

    • Written by from Denver

    I'm a photographer and graphic designer. Using a magic mouse has made the control over my pointer so much easier. Being able to scroll around with the multi-gesture features has given ease to my working environment. Although there are more things that Apple can improve on this product, i still believe this is an Amazing product by Apple

    Good Mouse for the Kind...

    • Written by from Rehoboth

    The Magic Mouse is a wonderful mouse when it comes to function. It is easy to get into and use and it serves its purpose as a functional, wireless mouse.

    Unfortunately, if you are a more "violent" mouse user (someone who sort of picks up the mouse slightly to move it from place to place while using) like myself, this mouse is not the right solution. For the price it is not built to withstand even the most subtle of mouse drops and will disconnect from bluetooth constantly. This has happened on multiple magic mice for me, but never before on cheaper logitech or even microsoft alternatives. Those other mice miss the cool functionality of the magic mouse, but for 70 bones Apple, you have to make the thing at least a bit durable.

    I give up

    • Written by from Otis

    After 5 months of trying to get used to Magic Mouse, I dug my old Logitech Bluetooth mouse out of the drawer. The Magic Mouse is unpredictable. I'm forever clicking right when I mean to click left. I accidentally swipe (or something) and my Web page disappears. I've even had to re-do online forms because the mouse did something unexpected. I need predictability.

    Superb mouse, take some time to adjust to it

    • Written by from Hastings

    Now that I have adjusted to it, I can say that this is the best mouse I have ever used. I just switched to the MacMini from windows, and decided that I might as well go Apple with the accessories as well. I got this mouse along with the non-keypad bluetooth keyboard.

    What I mean by getting adjusted is that you have to understand that this mouse is not designed to rest your hand on, in my opinion. Instead the low profile allows the mouse to nearly disappear so that you can rest you hand on your desk. The glide surfaces on the bottom work great on a smooth surface, no mousepad needed. I move mine around mainly by lightly touching the sides and clicking when I need to. The touch functions work very well for me, page scrolling is amazingly fast. On my Mac, I have the tracking set to almost the highest speed, for me this makes the touch functions nearly effortless when reading as well as when working.

    Simply a brilliantly designed mouse.
