    This mouse loses its connection to the computer in the middle of any task. It happens every day, usually several times, and requires a reboot to reestablish the connection. It often loses the connection after a period of "sleep" and again, requires a reboot. MOST ANNOYING !! Don't throw your wired mouse away!!!

    Jumpy, makes you work twice as hard... Why release something so imperfect?

    • Written by from LOS ANGELES

    The title pretty much sums up my review of this product. Apple can do amazing things, but sometimes in their pursuit of being "the firstest with the bestest" they release technologies where they haven't worked out the bugs for all of their users. I do not have an extraordinary work environment, yet the mouse does not let me select and click on any of my desired items with any ease like a hardwired mouse does, no matter the battery power, distance from the computer, etc... And I really SHOULDN'T have to do this dance. The thing should work out of the box, as it is. I shouldn't have to call apple support, as I have several times, to get it to work. So I have spent $50? (I don't really remember now) and will have now spend an additional sum this morning to buy a hard wired apple mouse that works. Here's an idea for you Apple. Why don't you actually do testing in Cupertino instead of releasing products and having your customers do the testing for you. It's not really the way to operate a business and it is starting to get to be really, really annoying. And this ain't the first time. Maybe "Think Different" might mean "Do It Right The First Time". Think about it...

    Keeps losing connection with the computer

    • Written by from Hollywood

    This mouse is terrible. I have had to restart my computer several times because the mouse, all of the sudden, stops working and lose the connection. I have lost all my work several times because you can be stuck with no way to get it around your mac if you only owns this mouse. If you decide to buy it, make sure you have a wire mouse as a back up

    Terrible product

    • Written by from MIAMI

    This is the worst Apple mouse I have owned. The previous ones were bad but this beat them all. Had to move my Mini less than 2' from the mouse and it is still erratic and behaves as with a mind of it's own when moving the mouse cursor. Movement feels "rubbery" at times and is very inaccurate. Save your money and get another brand and with a USB cable because this one goes through rechargeable batteries pretty fast.

    This mouse is great while it works. It breaks very easily simply by putting it into your computer bag (In my case a rolling Tumi bag). This is the second one and final one in the last 6 months. They just stop working - and no it is not battery related. I am an IT professional and no rookie to technology. This thing is WAY to FRAGILE!

    Worst mouse ever.

    • Written by from Kirkland

    This mouse is pretty - and that's about the only thing going for it. If the mouse isn't literally right next to my MacBook Air the Bluetooth connection is so unresponsive and laggy that it's essentially useless.

    I do a great deal of typing and the battery drains incredibly fast. Talk about a waste. Also, occasionally the connection is lost, which is terribly annoying while I'm in the middle of work

    What a tease!

    • Written by from Spokane

    I've had this mouse for less than a year. I was very impressed with how it worked. I loved every feature about it. Then it quit working. I can still scroll up and down , and left and right click, but I can't move the cursor around. Luckily I have my old Mighty Mouse, so I can still use that. I've looked online to try to find ways to fix it, but nothing has worked. I then tried to call apple to have them help me, but I would need to shell out more money for that, which is a major disappointment. In the end, I wouldn't recommend this mouse to anyone, which is unfortunate, because I really did like it until it quit working.

    Not meant For Doing Real Work

    • Written by from Baulkham Hills

    Its nice in theory but not ideal for my weekly 9-5 Product / Graphic Design work.

    Firstly, theres no way to use a middle or third button without installing a third party software that modifies the device. That means its useless for all your CAD programs if you're in that industry. Secondly, the form is pretty but I've noticed a significant increase of pain in my right arm from manipulating it all day. Thirdly it tends to cut out or freeze more often then the "mighty mouse".

    My conclusion - If you're planning on using it in a job where you have to hold a mouse all day long, stick to the Mighty Mouse with its middle button plus 360 scrolling capability.

    I want to love this but can't!!

    • Written by from Sydney

    Always been an Apple user and using this mouse 10 hours a day for 5 weeks straight with a new iMac. (Audio Production: Logic Pro/Pro Tools)

    Main problems:

    Intermittently losing blue tooth connection (Not Connected) happens 4 times a day with fresh batteries. About 5 seconds to reconnect.

    - If you like setting your mouse tracking to fast (so you don't have to move your hand as much) then this is not for you. At fastest setting it still only operates at 70% compared to any other mouse.

    - Too much drag caused by 2 full length bars under the mouse and of course 2 x AA batteries.

    - Remembering to turn it off when I shut down? How about my iMac sends a blue tooth message to my mouse turning it off, or at least some form of motion detection adjustable in system preferences so when it's idol for 5 minutes it turns off.

    - Still not used to the touch surface thing randomly scrolling 10 minutes down a time line whilst editing... bahhhh.....

    Great, if it weren't an ergonomic disaster.

    • Written by from Chicago

    Perhaps one day apple will make a mouse with any regard for user comfort, but it hasn't happened yet. Multitouch is nice, but I found this mouse to be totally unusable for serious work. My hands cramp up after about 10 minutes, and I don't have particularly large hands. I ditched this mouse and bought a logitech performance mouse, which is great. If you need multitouch gestures, the magic trackpad is a vastly better option.

    Magic Mouse isn't really magic

    • Written by from plano

    I bought this mouse with high hopes; it would look great with my new macbook pro. It looks stunning, and the form factor is exquisite.

    But thats's where all the positive aspects about this mouse ends. If you play any kind of games that requires a mouse, you are out of luck; the mouse is neither tactile nor ergonomic enough for that sort of use. I understand apple wants to make beautiful products, but you have to be able to use them well too.

    But if it were just that, I would be giving this review 4 stars. Instead, i'm giving it a 1 star because this device simply doesn't work. The forst one I bought broke; it simply refuses to connect via bluetooth. I thought this was a fluke, so I bought another one, and I was faced with the same problem. It's not the computer's problem, because it can't sync with our iMac either. Hopefully apple will come out with a mouse that works.

    No Magic in the mouse

    • Written by from Rochester

    This mouse is terrible! I had to purchase a bluetooth dongle, and now every time I want to use my desktop when it is in the sleep mode, I have to unplug and plug in the dongle to use the mouse. Totally useless, I would have bought the pad, but it wasn't out at the time. Don't waste you time with this piece of junk!!!!!

    I do not recommend.

    • Written by from dracena

    I bought my mouse one year ago and I still have problems using it.
    It's too much slow.
    Configuration at all (Ex: sensitivity) is terrible.
    You can buy better mouses with half money that I spent on mine.

    Worst buy ever

    • Written by from Buenos Aires

    I fully recommend you don't buy this product. There's nothing magic about it. It's heavy, your hand doesn't fit on the mouse, and the touchpad does not work when you want to move horizontally. It only works when you move vertically, just the same as any mouse with a wheel. Besides, it's terribly expensive for its functionality. Worst Apple product I ever bought.

    Interesting, But...

    • Written by from Ames

    OK, so it's pretty cool. But how about 2 serious deficiencies.

    1 - There are virtually no functional options for the L&R clicks. Come on! Couldn't you let the user do something else besides a left and right click, and the option of switching sides.

    How about letting the right click do a double click, or something that's also useful. I can always control left click to get the contextual menus, something I don't do very often.

    Let me do something more productive with the right click. Or don't you think Apple users are smart enough to make these decisions for themselves?

    2 - I have a weak arch in my right hand. Too many years with a regular mouse I could rest my palm on. (I can't play the piano either.) Well when my palm makes contact with the back half of the shell, it makes the Magic mouse go bonkers. When I want to scroll or something else, it thinks I'm touching the rear of the shell on purpose and bounces things around like a superball. I can't believe I'm the only one experiencing this problem.

    Let me restrict how far back on the mouse it senses a touch. If I could somehow restrict this area, I'd be happy one happy Apple devotee. (Been around since the Apple IIe days.)

    Give me a little love and I'll raise my rating to 4 or better immediately.

    Otherwise, it stays at one measly star for deficiencies and arrogance.

    Yes, it's cool, but not enough thought went into the practical side of this device. Let real people test these products, not just the techorati.

    The ball is in your court.

    For now, the Magic Mouse is back in Best Buys.
