    Battery Eating Monster

    • Written by from New York

    This product is a joke! It needs batteries constantly!!! Using rechargeable batteries will last max 3 weeks. What a waste on the environment!!! Where are the recycle battery boxes at the Mac stores????

    Bought 2 in a year. Not buying a third.

    • Written by from Sedgewick

    Product with a lot of potential, but not at all a value for the money. Very disappointing. Overly delicate product cannot take heavy use, multiple lost connections (stopped warning when the battery was becoming low and just dies unexpectedly). Not buying one again.

    Failed to meet expectations

    • Written by from Bonn

    I am a huge Apple fan. MacBook Pro, IPAD 2, IPOD, IPOD nano, Mac Wireless Keyboard,... I have it all!

    I have been loyal to Logitech mouses for years. I had several models, including the VX, and since I got the Performance MX I stopped looking any further. Simply the best mouse!

    Ergonomics are just PERFECT and it recharges the AA battery via USB cable when necessary. Only point against is that it does not connect directly to the MacBook bluetooth and requires the USB wireless dongle. For this reason, and for the functionalities advertised, I decided to try the Apple Magic Mouse. Veredict: HORRIBLE! The multi touch is of course nice, but the ergonomics are a total FAILURE! I felt wrist strain after the first 20 min! Also, the speed is quite slow, even configured as maximum on the mouse settings. I return it and I am back at the Logitech.

    Best luck for Apple R&D to beat the Logitech Perfomance MX!

    Hate it

    • Written by from San Diego

    After 1 day of using it, I found it useless. My MBP track pad is better. It doesn't work on Windows 7 bootcamp.

    Mouse does not stand up

    • Written by from Toronto

    Had mighty mouse - problems with track ball clogging up
    have used magic mouse for over two years on a standard vinyl desk pad and on a formica desk top. Bottom runners have worn so badly that the aluminum case is now touching the desk pad and the switch is almost flush with the bottom of the unit
    I do use this mouse a lot - however i do not abuse it. Was told by Eaton Centre Apple store to get a different desk pad - this pad is no different for others I have used
    They refused to repair the mouse - told me to buy a new one
    This product has considerable initial appeal but is clearly not all that durable

    Not Ergonomic at all!!

    • Written by from Guatemala

    After many hours of using it, your hand will reject it. Apple should design a better mouse for those who use it almost every day.

    Brutal mouse and fed up with it

    • Written by from Calgary

    This is just a outright poor product from Apple. I rely heavily on my mac products and this mouse doesn't cut it. A waste of $70.
    No rating.

    Worst mouse ever!

    • Written by from Comox

    I've had this mouse for over a year and it's the most frustrating thing about my awesome iMac! It's so sensitive that it scrolls and zooms all the time with just a slight movement of my finger above it. Batteries run out constantly.

    Awful

    • Written by from Charlestown

    This mouse is uncomfortable in the hand and causes involuntary navigation back and forward - a lot. If your surface has bumps it will switch off the mouse while moving and it takes quite a while to reconnect. I would have been better off with a $10 mouse.

    Terrible! NOT FOR PROFESSIONAL USE!

    • Written by from NEW YORK

    ONE OF WOST APPLE PRODUCT EVER BOUGHT.
    IT SEEMS LIKE APPLE PRODUCTS QUALITY IS GOING DOWN EVEN THOUGH THEIR SALES IS GOING UP SO HIGH!
    Design is Futuristic and Tech sounds Incredible, But Forget to use this one!
    Very difficult to move it around, and not accurate.
    Especially Definitely not for Design, Music, Videos Production work or Any Professional Use.
    It will slip all around, and you will make mistakes all over. takes more time.
    Also Battery dies very fast, even the most expensive Duracell, It doesn't really matter.
    All Professionals should get an regular Apple mouse for Professional use.
    NOT FOR PROFESSIONAL USE!!!

    Horrible!

    • Written by from ORANGE CITY

    If you are in the design industry, do NOT get this mouse! Whenever I'm working in Adobe, every little bump makes my screen fly all over the place. I spend more time trying to find my work out in "space" then actually working! The wireless is nice, but not worth it...

    Awesome Mouse, Waste of batteries

    • Written by from Columbia

    The magic mouse is quite wonderful when the battery is not dead. This would be the best mouse on the market if I didn't have to buy batteries (that are bad for the environment) over and over again, or purchase separate rechargeable batteries and charger.

    The battery life is ~1 month when used 8 hours a day, 5 days a week (I also turned off the mouse every evening). This is not very good for a professional product. Thats 24 batteries used per year. Think of that per magic mouse user, that is a lot of batteries that Apple could have prevented from going to the land fill (yes, I recycle batteries, but how many people actually do).

    Why Apple did not just install a rechargeable battery with an optional cord (with a mini USB cord similar to PS3 controller plug) is beyond me. Probably because it would disrupt their aesthetic.

    For all of Apple's great integration and keeping everything simple and Apple, this is a major fail.

    Fix the mouse Apple, even if it cost $20 more per mouse, thats $20 in batteries I do not have to buy.

    not ergonomic for me

    • Written by from Minneapolis

    The appearance of this mouse is very high-tech and nice but I have experienced a major shortcoming of the design as not well-suited for my work. I am a graphic designer and since I began using this mouse 2 months ago I have experienced a very sore thumb joint. It seems that the natural utility of my thumb when mousing is not to lift from the underside of the ridge of this ill-fitting mouse, but from the curved side as with the older Mac mouse bodies that I have been using for almost ten years.

    Aside from that, the side-to-side tracking of the mouse is obnoxious and often confused with up-to-down tracking (of course, I changed the setting but still have to discontinue using this mouse).

    Perhaps this is all relative to my mouse-control abilities but I would not recommend. I wish there is another wireless mouse option from Apple!

    Great, if you don't mind feeling like you're dragging it through mud

    • Written by from Forest Hills

    USB Overdrive doesn't support it yet, and OSX's unnatural mouse acceleration cannot be turned off. The device is pretty, but for someone who is used to rapid, precise movements, this feels like a brick. Sending it right back for a refund.

    the sliders disintegrate

    This mouse is fair, except the sliders disintegrate over time and with use. The metal piece that covers the batters now slides on the desk from time to time.

    Sleek and elegant but very painful to use: horrible ergonomics

    • Written by from Appleton

    At first I liked this mouse because of its nice swiping functionality. But after a week I had to give up: my arm and wrist hurt too much.

    Use of the Magic Mouse forces an unnatural thumb-downward twist in the forearm, which induces stress and pain in the forearm/wrist after even a short time.

    Great design, terrible ergonomics

    • Written by from Toronto

    The Magic Mouse does what it says it will do, and elegantly, but with one fatal flaw: the ergonomics are so terrible that you can develop RSI very rapidly. I bought one and after one week I had to return it, my right arm was so sore. As soon as I stopped using it, the pain went away. It has to do with finger placement, and the way it forces you to hold the mouse. I've used many pointer control devices, and this one caused me the greatest pain of them all.

    Too touchy

    • Written by from Morgantown

    I usually like Mac/Apple products, but this mouse is just plain frustrating. It looks nice, but that's about it. It's too sensitive/touchy. Even after several months of use, I'm not used to it. I still end up clicking things I don't mean to click and can't control the scrolling properly. And my mac will never respond to it to wake up, which means needing something wired in addition to the wireless mouse. Plus, I desperately miss the functionality of the additional buttons the mighty mouse had. The options in system preferences are very limited for adjusting the functions of this mouse. And, in terms of ergonomics, well, it has none. It's really not comfortable to use for a long time. Overall, I'm ready to throw this mouse out the window and get a cheap one with buttons and a normal scroll wheel.

    totally out of control

    • Written by from LONG ISLAND CITY

    Simple, if you are a production guy, works often with layout editing software, photo editing, or what ever, this mouse makes you waist a lo of valuable time. It is very unpredictable. I zoom in or out when you least expect it. It scrolls horizontally, or vertically on with the slightest touch. I must say that pointer movement is very precise, but finger touch feature is way too sensitive. I have not been able customize a setting that works for me. I use a lot of InDesign, and Photoshop software and I regret to have given my old mouse to a friend of mine. I miss it way too much now.
