    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.

    I don't know about this one...

    • Written by from San Antonio

    This mouse is unpredictable at times...somethings it does double click actions when I'm just wanting a single click. At other times I'm listening to music/videos and all of a sudden it sends the volume control full blast! Almost blew my ears off and that's detrimental and could damage my hearing. Nope...the surface is too sensitive and of course it doesn't help when you have your hands hovering over it most of the time. I do like the design and how it glides without a mousepad. But that's really it.

    Don't ever buy this product if you use Adobe software

    • Written by from Caldwell

    This mouse will drive you absolutely bonkers if you use InDesign or some other Adobe products. It's like trying to navigate a document while in a plane that is experiencing ongoing turbulence. After 4 years neither Adobe or Apple has corrected the issue.

    I expected better

    • Written by from Revere

    I like the features of this mouse - the touch controls are clever. But the highest speed setting is still not enough for a 27" iMac. Also, the tracking is not fluid. Perhaps it would be better on a perfect surface, but I don't have a perfect surface. Also, the optical sensor that reads the movement is located very near the front of the mouse. I just couldn't really adapt to this after using so many mice with the sensor near the center - it really effects how you must move your hand around.

    After about 10 days of use, I retrieved the cheapo Dell mouse from the PC that the iMac replaced. It works beautifully!

    Heavy!

    • Written by from Astoria

    It is very heavy and causes you get serious carpal tunnel, it moves very very slow even on the fastest setting and you have to run your poor hand all over the table... Very disappointed, expected much better from Apple!

    No problems at all. A great device.

    • Written by from Pittsford

    I've used it for 6 months, since I got my iMac at work. It works great, easy to do fine detail work in PhotoShop and Illustrator. I use it every day and the batteries last 2 months. The secret to that is to buy name brand batteries. The off-brands last a week.

    Counter-Productive with a Superior Product

    • Written by from Glendale

    As a Designer I use Adobe software throughout my work day. I find that the quality of the magic mouse is far superior than any other. My complaint lies with the trackpad multi-touch capability. Within Adobe software, as you graze your finger across the mouse it flings your workspace across the screen. I find that I am constantly having to reposition my work. I rely far too heavily on cmd+0 to re-center my work. Not to mention, as I attempt to duplicate objects or text boxes the screen zooms at random (by holding alt to select and drag – my finger changes position on the mouse). I refuse to purchase another Mighty Mouse as I have already gone through three of them, due to the trackball no longer working. This magic mouse has the capability to be the best, however, it causes frustrations at a level not previously experienced. What I mentioned above are only a couple issues related to using the mouse in a production environment.

    Amazing!!

    • Written by from Star

    This thing's battery lasts for months! and I use it un a daily basis on my macbook pro, also, it is quite comfortable despite the other reviews that indicate the opposite, you just need to know how to hold the mouse.

    Would rather have a wired mouse

    • Written by from Huntington Beach

    Mouse came with new iMac. I think the battery life stinks. Also the sensitivity is bad, it seems that if there is just a bit of dirt or dust on the surface it doesn't perform as it should. The wife hates the scroll and won't even use her fingers on it because it's too sensitive for her. Basically a failure in my opinion.

    Intuitive mouse

    • Written by from Milford

    I bought this mouse 3.5 years ago with my iMac and haven't had any complaints since. the gestures work as advertised, and are quite intuitive for first time users. I can breeze through multiple web pages/applications/screens with this mouse. There has been no technical difficulties, the mouse still works like the first day I bought it
