    I HATE THIS MOUSE!

    • Written by from PRAIRIE VILLAGE

    I have renamed this mouse the "Phantom Mouse" because it will take me places where my hand did not move it! I am a graphic designer and my job is stressful enough as it is. I don't need this additional frustration.

    So thank you, magic mouse. Thank you for making me so utterly and painfully frustrated. What happened to keeping things simple? These "techy" devices are making the simplest tasks more challenging and complicated!

    A crazy product

    • Written by

    It drives me nuts. The whole page would disappear when I accidentally touched the mouse without knowing it. You don't a jet to take you to the next block. Nobody in our studio likes it. We all switched back to the $10 mouse with a scrolling wheel now.

    Can't figure out the lag

    • Written by from Sherman Oaks

    The lag on this mouse is ridiculous. I've tried all of the work arounds, resetting it, moving other blue tooth items away with no success. I can not recommend this mouse.

    Do not use for design work

    • Written by from Saint Paul

    This is the most frustrating piece of Apple equipment I have ever tried using. I was looking forward to the wireless mouse, with less wires running across my desk, but the Magic Mouse is almost impossible to work with when trying to do graphic design, the slightest touch sends it zooming over to the opposite side of the page.

    What Happened?

    • Written by from Simpsonville

    I have used this mouse for several years with no problems and was very happy with it until recently. Now it has become almost unusable at times due to skipping and lagging with movement. Its unresponsive and freezes up at times. Based on support posts on apples sight, there are quite a few complaints about this. Ive seen many different explanations of the problem, but it sounds like a bluetooth connection issue. Regardless, how has it work fine for years and then seemed to recently start acting up? This should have been fixed. Ive actually got my apple wired mouse back out because I cant take it anymore! This thing is not functional!

    Stay Away

    • Written by from SAN RAFAEL

    I saw the suggestion for PC users to get the Magic Mouse instead of the Trackpad. Don't do it. The mouse is incredibly heavy and clunky. The scroll function is nice, but that's it. I just got the Trackpad to replace the Magic Mouse. The Trackpad is incredible. It's worth getting an iMac just for the Trackpad. The touch is so light and responsive and does so many things. It feels very elegant and it's a pleasure. Stay away from the Magic Mouse. I can't believe it's made by the same company.

    Awful

    • Written by from Fountain Hills

    This mouse is the worst I have used in 25 years. It is so sensitive that simply touching it enlarges or contracts the images. I do a lot of work with maps, using polygons to select the area. This mouse is a disaster as it automatically zooms in and out at will. Clearly it needs more field testing. Would not recommend under any circumstances.

    To sensitive.

    • Written by from Albertville

    I hate this mouse. I am a graphic designer and constantly have my hand on the mouse as I work. The slightest touch or graze of the mouse and my pages are flying left and right. I HATE this mouse. I am more upset because it cost me so much money. If you are not a designer and are just doing web browsing it wouldn't be so bad - for for working with it in design programs it is a nightmare.

    Imprecise

    • Written by from Lakewood

    For my work I need a mouse that puts the pointer where I want. This mouse does not do that. Its okay if you're clicking on big huge things because it will put the pointer in the general vicinity of where you want. This mouse is a source of frustration.

    Waste of Money

    • Written by from Fresno

    Don't spend the money on this mouse. I could get used to all the erratic swipes and pans but it loses the Bluetooth connection about 50 times a day. I have replaced batteries, put little squares of paper inside, turned off every Bluetooth device within a mile radius and it still does not work. I am on a band new Macbook Pro but it just drops the connection. Terrible product. I am forced to go back to an old Dell mouse. At least it works!

    Even at 100% battery life it constantly looses connection with the computer and its less than a foot away, its a constant source of irritation.

    NOT FOR DESIGNERS!

    • Written by from Cookstown

    It's not just me...

    • Written by from Danville

    A few days ago I watched a sales associate at my local Apple store struggling with the same unwanted zooms/paging/scrolling, which I have experienced with the Magic Mouse. Like many, I have turned off Screen Zoom and the two-finger swipe (and almost everything else). But after struggling with it for another month I just went back to my Mighty Mouse, which still functions perfectly with Lion.

    The touch-sensitive technology of the Magic Mouse is a tremendous step forward. It has not, however, been paired with adequate software. I find it odd that Apple includes this mouse with many computers, but requires software from a third party (not included it in the initial purchase) in order to make it function in an acceptable fashion.

    A power hog

    My logitech cordless mouse lasts 1 year on 1 AA battery. My Apple Magic Mouse lasts 1 month of 2 AA batteries. Yet another example of Apple's slow slide back to form before function

    Not recommended

    Constantly disconnects from Macbook. Makes it almost impossible to use. In fact has already disconnected twice while typing this review. Fresh batteries do not help.

    Less buttons = Less Functionality

    • Written by from Holly ridge

    If your using any programs that require more than one button then this mouse is not for you. It will require going into your mac system preferences to try and update more then just a left click. Then when that doesn't work you can try going into whatever program you are using to see if you can enable more mouse options. Then after spending 30 mins scrolling through forums or going through apple help you'll decide to either write a negative product review.

    Why buy this mouse when you can buy a cheaper mouse that works the first time around without playing around in settings. Macs are supposed to be user friendly. This mouse is not.

    Don't buy this if you just purchased a 15" retina display MacBook Pro

    • Written by from Honolulu

    basically it has trouble pairing with bluetooth, not just me, but everyone that I've talked to who just bought the 15" retina macbook is having trouble. apple should fix this issue, because it's not the cheapest mouse :(

    Apple Magic Mouse

    • Written by from Middle West Pubnico

    The old Apple bluetooth mouse was terrible. Couldn't pick it up and hold it in any way that was comfortable. Just really crapy design. I called Apple with discuss just to ask the tech people what they were thinking.
    The new bluetooth magic mouse is easier to grasp but still a waste of time to even consider. Still doesn't fit the common hand and the screen wobbles and jumps around as soon as I put my fingers anywhere near the mouse. Also I can't do Cad work with it because it has no wheel to use as a centre button to pan the drawing. Thank God I still have my Logitec. Apple needs another selection in the pricing of new Macs where you can check of that you don't want to buy an Apple mouse. Should be able to deduct at least $2.00 from the invoice.
