    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.

    Don't even bother buying!

    • Written by from Demotte

    I should of listened to the majority of reviews on here and steered away from purchasing this mouse, but I didn't. The next day I took it back to Best Buy. Talk about uncomfortable, way to slim, it really hurts the wrist to use. The material they used for the thing to slide is absolutely awful! ! It doesn't want to move and if you put it on a table, it WILL scratch it! Forget about a mouse pad, doesn't work well at all.The concept is great, but that's about all that's great about this mouse. If you buy as I did, Good Luck! Allocate alittle money for the gas your going to use to take it back. I love Apple, but they really failed big on this one.

    Logitech is far superior

    • Written by from Gloucester

    Why? Because Logitech just works. Does not do odd things, or fail to do things I expect. For example, this mouse's Ctl+ scroll= zoom DOES NOT WORK in Safari, or on the desktop. Works on Firefox, but not on Safari. ironically, no Mouse settings give a clue as to why it does it. I could try googling forums, and defeats the purpose of getting an Apple product.

    Double tap for Mission Control? Do so if you want to hit ENTER, as you cannot predict when it shall work versus just left or right click. As for other gestures, no matter how clean, sensitive or co-ordinated one is, one cannot predict what a gesture will achieve. In the end, to sum it up, is waste of time. Not as in a waste of time getting it, but literally, a waste of time by loosing time precious time with a mouse that takes you on unpredictable journeys. Reminds me of Vista and Microsoft products.

    Save your money!!!

    • Written by from West Nyack

    Probably the worst creation apple has ever made. Between the random zoom in and outs, page swipes, and connection losses, this is just horrendous. Not to mention the amount of batteries needed. I have to change the batteries at least once a week. I thought a wireless mouse would be the way to go, so I could save a USB port, but I couldn't wait to throw this out the window. After many frustrating hours of usage, I decided to get a standard mouse that WORKS. Sorry Apple, hit the design floor again and figure this out. The only reason I gave it 1 star is because I couldn't give it 0.

    Took it back instantly

    • Written by from Markham

    This mouse is not built for people that use the mouse for most of their work. I use my mouse for 8 hours per day as a developer and after two days my wrist felt numb and starting to sieze up. I had to shake my wrists out almost every 10 minutes.

    I would expect a company like apple to work a crucial thing like "ergonomics" in to their designs, but seems like they completely ignored that.

    I'm not sure who actually would like this mouse but I took it back in favour of the logitech Performance MX

    Very Disappointing

    • Written by from Pinehurst

    I do a lot of desk top publishing and decided to upgrade to this mouse. It scrolls nicely, it zooms in and out nicely, but when it comes to clicking, or highlighting or wanting to insert text into an existing sentence it fails miserably. It freezes. I have to click elsewhere and then return to try again. It hesitates. It will not allow me to insert text into an existing file name. I have resurrected my old microsoft Intelimouse, plugged it in and it is working the way a mouse should work. I'm returning this magic mouse to the store!

    Mouse Causes Pain in Hand

    • Written by from PROVINCETOWN

    Puzzled that this mouse has been around for several years, and in spite of many complaints, it hasn't been redesigned.

    Having the latest technical features in your mouse can't trump having to o to a doctor because of pain in your hand. I also developed a callus on the part of they hand where the wrist meets the rest of the hand.

    I'm returning to Apple it pronto!

    Unexpected coming from Apple Apple

    Hardware failed after 14 months. Mouse is recognized but cursor is frozen, even after trying several suggested solutions. Optical lens apparently not working. Expected higher quality from Apple.

    Nice looking, bad using

    • Written by from Cold Brook

    Apple has always made cool looking innovative mice, that are uncomfortable to use. The original mouse - too square and boxie.
    The bondi blue hockey puck - hard to hold because its round
    The Apple Mouse - close!! The little trackball sometimes is a problem.
    The Magic Mouse - too flat.

    This has always been a problem for them, because stuff that fits in your hand isn't attractive. For me I use a competitors wireless mouse 5000 because its big and round and rubbery and fits nicely in my hand and works very well for a long time.

    I love Apple products, but they don't do mice very well.

    worst mouse i ever used

    • Written by from MILTON KEYNES

    which numpty decided a flat mouse was a good idea. a hand naturally sits curved if you use your finger tips to push buttons and do gestures. Your palm is left floating in mid air or your finger tips hang over the top. Cant believe this gto through testing. just give it an inch more height and just make the top surface for gestures... jeeeezzz

    terrible

    • Written by from Brandon

    Do not buy this mouse.
    It was the worst money I ever spent, it frequently won't click on what I want it to but instead minimized the frigging window, the back falls off of it constantly and will not go back on, and it often sends me back to a previous page in safari for no discernible reason... I move the mouse and all of the sudden I'm back 4 or 5 pages.
    Exceptionally frustrating, could not use for more than 6 months until I was ready to throw the stupid thing through a window.

    PAINFUL contemplating class action suit for carpal tunnel it's that bad

    • Written by from Peoria

    Mouse seems great but then you use it.... if you are a casual user then great. If you are using this mouse for any kind of work for extended periods of time, i.e. greater then 5 min literally, you will be in for a shock. HAND AND WRIST PAIN TO DIE FOR! My hand and wrist will hurt for hours after use due to the extremely poor ergonomics. sleek design, cools gestures and function do NOT make up for the terrible terrible design. If your hands aren't super small DONT GET THIS MOUSE!

    Cool features, NOT ERGONOMIC

    • Written by from Bothell

    At first this mouse is great because of the gestures. However you immediately recognize how non ergonomic this mouse really is. After extended use your hand and wrist will start to experience pain. My definition of extended is anything over 30 minutes to an hour. I've never experienced this pain from any other input device I've ever used on any system. Be warned!

    Ergonomics

    • Written by from vaughan

    Apple did a great job at developing this mouse in terms of function, however, the ergonomics are terrible. Using the mouse for longer than 20 minutes is painful.

    Please Re-design the Magic Mouse

    • Written by from Montreal

    After several months of Magic Mouse use, I sum it up as follows:

    - It eats through a pair of AA's every month
    - It's not as ergonomic to hold as my 13 year old Intellimouse Explorer
    - The laser doesn't work well on my veneered table and causes the cursor not to respond sometimes when I move the mouse -- my Intellimouse on the other hand works flawlessly.

    I wanted to like this mouse as it compliments my Apple setup but it got bested by a mouse designed 10 years earlier.
