    terrible mouse

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    This could be the worst thing apple have ever created. Terrible mouse that doesn't work with most professional software, works well with the usual Mac teenager tools and apps.

    Won't Stay Connected

    • Written by from Los Alamos

    I've owned this mouse (and charger) now for almost two years, and aside from a few quirks have been generally pleased with its convenience and performance. I use it with my MacBook Pro when it sits in its desktop stand. Now, over the past few weeks, the mouse will not maintain its connection with the laptop. It loses the connection at least once every minute and usually more often. Sometimes in reconnects; sometimes it just won't reconnect. My Mac maintains other bluetooth connections without difficulty. The problem is solely with the Magic Mouse. I would not recommend this product. The 'Magic' is gone!

    This mouse has a Mind of it's own

    • Written by from Orange

    Plain and simple worst all around mouse I've ever owned. Also, like a lot of Apple products way over priced.

    GREAT mouse!

    • Written by from Canton

    Bought this today to replace an older Mighty Mouse - Night and day difference! This is the first mouse I've used that makes me finally want to throw out my old Microsoft Wheel Mouse Optical. Seamless scrolling and clicking, great ergonomics, HIGHLY recommended!

    Bad material. It scratch very easily

    • Written by from Sunrise

    The mouse is great, but the material on top is terrible. I had a couple of scratches just two weeks after I bought the mouse. I don't have children, and I just use my mouse at home. I went to the Apple in Square One in Mississauga (where I bought It) and the person said: its not a malfunction, its a cosmetic problem, and we don't replace the mouse. How can a weakness in the material be a cosmetic thing? I research in Internet and I am not the only one with that problem.

    100% awesome!

    • Written by from Orlando

    I can't believe I waited this long to get this thing. It really surpasses all my expectations.

    I work in web design and development. My mouse is my second most important tool, after my macbook. This mouse totally blows away the standard wired mouse that I've been using ever since I got this computer. My scroll wheel quick working about a year ago, so I've been struggling along using scrollbars.

    This mouse looks and feels great, and, with very little practice, became perfectly intuitive to use. I also ordered the magic charger.

    My only gripe is that I wish it came with a case to put it in for those times that I have to be mobile. I have been using the clear plastic case it came in, with a rubber band wrapped around it to keep it closed. I plan to find something more suitable.

    I recommend this product without hesitation!

    Eats batteries like crazy - useless!

    • Written by from HAMPTON COVE

    This mouse goes through about 1 set of batteries every week or so - today I just put in NEW batteries and within 10 minutes it said batteries are at 5% and has started dropping the connection. How is that possible. Absolute waste of money!!! Can I give a minus stars rating???

    great first 4 years, then just a crock

    • Written by from BERKELEY

    MM's been working fine on my laminated desk surface for the first four years and then started getting more and more choppy. I've tried, as someone has suggested, stuffind paper in the battery compartment for a snug fit: it makes no difference. I've even bought a 3m special pad for $8. The only thing that works is the glossy surface of the package the 3M pad came in. Otherwise, the 3M pad produces absolutely 0 tracking. Go figure!
    I have an old MS USB mouse, and it works just fine, except that it's ugly and takes one USB port.
    By the way, I've just replaced my four-year-old MBP with the most recent model. Made no difference for the magic mouse.
    There is a person (persons) with the same problem on the Apple Forum, and Apple has not provided any answers.

    Brilliant mouse with so-so battery life and Bluetooth connection

    • Written by from Cape Town

    MOUSE
    This is the best mouse I've ever used. I spend about 10 hours a day in front of the screen, most of which includes design work of some sort, so you could say I'm a heavy mouse user. Of all the mice I've owned and used, this is the best one by a long stretch. It sits comfortably in my hand, it has a clean, clutter free design, and it operates very precisely. The single shell design with multi buttons are perfectly balanced, and scrolling always impresses - it really is a magical experience, compared to other mice.

    I don't like using a mouse pad, which results in the ski-strips on the underside getting a little mucky over time, but it's easy enough to clean to not influence my overall very positive experience with the mouse.

    BATTERY LIFE
    As mentioned, I am a heavy user, but having to replace the batteries every 2 to 3 weeks does leave a somewhat not-so-green feeling. I would say if it wasn't for the battery life, I would give this product a 5 star rating.

    BLUETOOTH CONNECTION
    I'm not sure if it's my MacBook or my mouse, but about once a week I lose my Bluetooth connection, with the mouse within 5 inches from my MacBook. This does seem a bit odd, but luckily getting it re-connected is only a swipe-tap-select away on my trackpad.

    Lose connectivity

    • Written by from RALEIGH

    I have one at home and one for work. Both constantly lose connectivity. If you work a lot in PowerPoint for Mac, this mouse is very frustrating to work with, once touch and you fly 150 slides down the presentation. So for me, this mouse is really bad.

    *** Alert; Scrolling needs =or>10.6 to work ***

    • Written by from SEATTLE

    Either It’s not clear, or even stated under the “System Requirements”, although the mouse works in 10.5.8, the scrolling feature that does not work unless the system is 10.6 or better.
    …This straight from an Apple tech support person. Disappointing. Please pay more attention to the details on your web site Apple.
    Thanks.

    Lots of room for improvement

    • Written by from North Las Vegas

    Been using my magic mouse for a while now. I love the gestures, they really take the mouse to the next level. However as others have stated the ergonomics are not the best. This mouse is heavy and has large contact pads on the bottom that seem to grip more than slide on your desk. Feels very much like sliding around a brick. My biggest complaint is the sides, I grip the mouse from the sides with my thumb and ring finger, and they are very sharp to the point that they irritate my skin after a few hours.

    Overall a great product, I am keeping my fingers crossed for some ergonomic improvements from future generations!

    It's all in the name ...

    • Written by from Lake Forest

    Visiting the company store in Cupertino gives the perfect excuse to purchase a new accessory, superbly designed you can work with it all day as it fits beautifully into your hand and reacts with accuracy, the comments on battery life I saw on the review must have come from some crazed PC lover, i use mine both at work on a boring PC and at home (Mac), were the right swipe and finger motions come alive. Hard use 8 Hrs.+ a day and in a week without switching it off still at 92%... and as for people who say its expensive, search the internet for the worlds most expensive computer mouse...

    My last comment, if looks could kill this mouse should have a licence.

    Magic Mouse Is Great

    • Written by from YAKIMA

    I have been using the Magic Mouse since early June. It has been used 8 hours a day 5 days a week and I have had no problems. I still have 68% of my original batteries left with no problems with the batteries falling out as others have stated. I have not found a program that it does not work well with although i have not used it on a CAD program yet. i am looking forward to using it in my classroom this school year. I would advise anyone who is buying a MacBook to add the Magic Mouse to their purchase.

    If you like charging batteries daily, this is the mouse for you.

    • Written by from Portland

    Absolute junk. Can't hold a charge for more than a few hours compared to my Microsoft Mouse that holds a charge for weeks - maybe more than a month. The Apple Mouse, keyboard and trackpad are horrible products to be avoided. I am falling in love with my new PC more everyday that i have to put up with my over priced under performing Mac equipment. Don't waste your money on Apple. Take a look at the latest PCs. They are better in every way.

    Best mouse I've ever used

    • Written by from BOZEMAN

    This mouse is great. The multitouch works well, it is easy to use and the battery life is great. I've seen reviews saying that they were replacing the batteries every week, but I've had mine for about three years and I've probably replaced the batteries about 5 times max
