    The mouse is dying

    • Written by from Ashley

    I got my Magic Mouse in Oct. 2009. Worked great for a time but in the last year it has gotten progressively worse. It lags so badly now and acts as though there is no connection that I have stopped using the little rat. Drove me crazy! The old mouse stills works better than this one. I started using a Logitech mouse again and will go get a new one as I don't intend to use the Magic Mouse any longer. If you have some ideas on why this is please fill me in.

    Waste of money.

    • Written by from Kilwinning

    This has got to be the worst product Apple has made yet. Even if it was quarter the price, it would still be a waste of money! The mouse doesn't feel good in the hand; it just doesn't work ergonomically. Design over substance! Theoretically, its great on paper, the finger movements are all very Apple; but the Bluetooth lags, and the mouse is slow: even at the optimum speed. Very poor Apple, I am very disappointed with this. If I could return it and take back my money, I would.

    Burns through batteries

    • Written by from LOS ANGELES

    My $$ certainly does magically disappear on replacement batteries for this mouse. It came with my iMac and the Duracell Ultra Advanced batteries I use don't last for more than 2 or 3 months (max) -- and it's not the batteries, because they've been powering flashlights and remotes without a problem. For long-term use, this is a very expensive Apple "idea". For the environmentally conscious: where are all the drained batteries supposed to go? Are battery-recycling bins everywhere to be found? No! So what did Apple imagine was going to happen when Magic Mouse owners trash all their quickly-drained batteries?

    Loses connection, requires reboot

    • Written by from Montreal

    The mouse usually loses the connection to the computer after an hour or so, and often won't reconnect until the computer is rebooted.The bluetooth keyboard works fine, so I don't think it's a general bluetooth issue or similar.

    Most frustrating computer product I've owned in 30 years

    • Written by from California City

    This is my 6th Apple Mouse - 2 wired and 4 bluetooth and currently I am on my second Magic Mouse. Occasionally, it does work properly. And when it does, it really is Magic. It is, to me, an absolute gem as I have a sight problem and when this mouse behaves, my ability to maneuver objects, drag and drop and generally control my visual environment is fabulous - I am on par with anyone else. But (I estimate) about 80% of the time, it is so sensitive that it becomes wayward; it scrolls pages left or right and shoots them up and down and frequently zooms in (but not out) without any control or help from me other than that my finger(s) are in close proximity to the top curved plate --- NOT touching --- but close. Then, of course, with a sight impairment, it is more than disconcerting for me to find where the heck I am in an application or surfing the internet or even finding the cursor at all, at times. I have finally accidentally dropped the blasted thing in utter exasperation and now a new mouse is required - NOT, I hasten to add, an Apple Magic Mouse. I love the usual quality of Apple products - of which I have several - but this is utter rubbish. The concept is tremendous; its application is poor - very poor indeed - and my outboard Magic Trackpad is not that hot, either. Come on Apple: make us a sensible mouse at last.

    Looks good, feels good, works poorly. This mouse has not worked well for me at all. It's jerky and the cursor jumps all over the place. I'm a designer and makes using apps very difficult when doing really precise work with points/pixels. Actions like scrolling are intermittent. I think it has poor bluetooth connectivity. Also I often accidentally open widgets and can't swipe them away.
    I'm using it with Lion on a 15" mid-2009 MacBook Pro. Never had issues like this on my previous gen macBook Pro with wireless Mighty Mouse.

    Beautiful Design = Horrible Ergonomics

    • Written by from Houston

    if you have your mac as part of a museum piece, this it the perfect mouse

    However if you work on the computer 8-10 hrs a day better get another mouse this will definitely give you carpal tunnel or at least kill every muscle/ligament of your hand/wrist.

    Pretty disappointed actually

    • Written by from Oakville

    I just picked up this mouse because my wireless Mighty Mouse (last generation) finally died, and I am pretty shocked. This one is pretty, but lacks a key function for me. Without expose (the two side buttons) I still need to use the trackpad or keyboard to get peak functionality, and I use that function probably 50+ times a day (even with an exterior monitor). I recommend buying a wireless Mighty Mouse rather than the Magic Mouse if you can find one. Hopefully the next step is the same functionality as the trackpad.

    Natively slow, even at its fastest setting. It needed a third party app to boost its speed.

    Poor Tracking - CAD Operators Beware

    • Written by from Ocala

    I love the look and feel of the Apple Magic Mouse, and the multi-touch gestures are great. But I ended up purchasing an Apple Trackpad and Logitech mouse as I found the Magic Mouse unusable. I am a CAD operator and this mouse just isn't suitable for this work. I also find it awkward for regular MAC use. I'm not sure exactly what it is, but the tracking just isn't right. It is probably a combination of acceleration and the ratios of vertical and horizontal tracking speeds that is all wrong. I found when I had the horizontal tracking just right, the vertical would be too slow. Anyone working in CAD and switching from WINPC/Logitech will most likely have trouble adapting. I tried an App called Better Touch but that still didn't fix the problem. What Apple really needs to add is a system preference to change tracking speed of Vertical and Horizontal separately. This would be a big help as this is where I think the main problem is.

    Constantly disconnects, poor ergonomics

    • Written by from Cambridge

    Without a doubt, this is a beautiful looking mouse, and the multi-touch ability is really nice. However, it's all form and poor function. The mouse consistently disconnects, a problem I don't have with other mice, and it's the most uncomfortable mouse I've ever used. It's low profile makes it uncomfortable to use for extended periods. Most importantly, though, it's the least reliable bluetooth mouse I've ever used, disconnecting constantly (once every five minutes or so).

    Maybe I got a bad one. I certainly think I may have, given the glowing reviews from others. However, I feel I should judge this based on my own experience, just to balance things out over all the reviews.

    Terrible Product

    • Written by from Kalamazoo

    The mouse does not open links correctly. Once you click it gives you dialogue box similar to a right click that you cant click off of. The scrolling touch mouse does not work either. WORST APPLE PRODUCT EVER.

    Extremely disappointed

    • Written by from Pulaski

    This is the worst mouse yet. I love everything about Apple products except the mouse. I have been using a PC mouse for the last 4 years I have had my Mac...the Mac mouse sits in a box. I thought they had finally gotten it right, but I was wrong! This "mouse" is slow and unresponsive as they have always been!

    I generally really enjoy apple products but the magic mouse is awful. I've had so many problems with it - everything from having to replace the batteries twice a week (seriously) to constant disconnecting and reconnecting so much that it's unusable. I've even called apple and the best answer they can give me is to buy new batteries. Do not buy this product.
