    Bad tracking / Not precise

    • Written by from Columbia

    The mouse keeps having issues moving on the mouse mat. I tried it with it, without it, over glass, over paper, over leather, over a matte plastic surface, and nothing. The precision of it is really bad. The rubber pads at the bottom make the mouse to stick to almost every surface, so when you have to be very precise, and apply little force to it to move it 2 or 3 pixels, it keeps sticking to the surface, and if you apply more force it "jumps" from where you are. Dissapointed. I am going back to the Apple Store for a refund. My old Dell plastic US$ 3 mouse does it waaaaay better than this US$ 74.

    Good, but it get me crazy disconnecting by itself

    • Written by from Sanford

    The functionality of the mouse if good, easy to use and practicable.
    The down side of it, is that the battery life is poor and for some reason it disconnects a lot during use.
    For the price charged, in my opinion I wouldn't like to experience problems with it.

    I don't know why people keep complaining.

    • Written by from Albert Lea

    I've owned my magic mouse for 4 months and haven't had to replace the batteries yet. It's tracking works great and it never misreads my touches or clicks. It is my favorite mouse I have ever owned.

    Needs to be more ergonomic

    • Written by from Mississauga

    I love this mouse, i really do. From the smooth scrolling to the precise pointing.
    However, I am also a frequent computer user. Although the mouse looks really nice, it absolutely needs to be more ergonomic. My hands would hurt after an hour of using it. I would love to see a change in form factor in the next version of this mouse.

    S*#t Product

    • Written by from Richmond

    The 'magic' mouse is S&#T! My iMac is almost two years old, and this weekend is the FOURTH time I will be going back to Apple to have it replaced. Lucky (if one could call it that) the first three were replaced free of charge by Apple here in Sydney. Keeps cutting off even with fresh batteries, very frustrating. Using my old corded mouse for now, helluva' lot better.

    A fine product, this mouse

    • Written by from Heiligenhaus

    I like this mouse from the very first moment, I used it.

    It gives a good feeling and is a fine extension to the built in track-panel of my MacBook Pro.

    Recommendation for this wonderful mouse.

    Hard to get used to

    • Written by from Raleigh

    Very hard to get used to, the slightest touch causes me to scroll all over the page. I preferred the Apple Mighty Mouse but the scroll ball kept getting stuck so I thought I would try this one. No scroll ball to get stuck but the surface is hypersensitive. Also the batter life stinks, I have to replace the batteries about every 5 weeks.

    4 Years and Kicking!

    • Written by from Olympia

    Had my mouse for four years and it is still kicking. Only time I had problems was when I had used my imac bluetooth devices with other mac products and didn't properly disassociate after I was finished. Otherwise it has been a smooth ride. In fact when I use other computers and other mice it feels like a step back in time.

    Magic mouse

    • Written by from Aguadilla

    I have used up to date 2 magic mouse. Like other users have also shared, this mouse works great but both of mine have stopped working before a year of use. The mouse is expensive to be replacing it every year. Also when it does work it tends to disconnect frequently and this is a very frustration situation. I don't know if the track pad is better or not but I will be trying that next or use an aftermarket mouse to do the job.

    The aluminum part from the bottom of the mouse peels off.

    • Written by from missoula

    I've been only using this mouse less than half year so far, but I've already got the color from the aluminum has been worn out really bad. The parts that are usually contacted by my fingers turned into black! First time when I purchased this sleek looking mouse, I had instinctively thought it should be just like iPhone 5's metal part, but It looks like they processed it differently... Color from the bottom of the mouse wears off so easily.

    Ruins my productivity

    • Written by from Sterling

    While this mouse in nice in concept, the sensitivity of the scrolling surface on the top of the mouse is really problematic. It is far too sensitive and results in constant problems. At the slightest mis-touch of a finger, you will find your slides scrolling up or down, you will find webpages going forward or back, or you will find yourself suddenly on a different page of the document you were working on. It is also difficult to precisely scroll back to a particular slide because the sensitivity is so high. Working with this mouse probably makes me 5-10% less productive on a daily basis because I am constantly having to scroll back to the spot I was working on. I would much prefer the classic scroll wheel or the mini-track ball of the Apple Mouse since it is far less likely that I will accidentally activate those devices.

    Surprised by all the positive reviews

    • Written by from Northridge

    I am surprised by all the positive reviews. The connection is lost every few minutes which makes working with Excel sheets a nightmare. I continually need to wait until the mouse connects again. Will be returning to the the standard mouse so that I can finish my work without swearing every 3 minutes

    This is a very good product except for the fact that it eats batteries at least 5 times as much as my microsoft mouse.

    Completely Unreliable

    • Written by from HUNTINGTON BEACH

    I loved this mouse so much that when my first one stopped working after a year (and yes, the batteries were fully charged) I purchased a new one. Now, less than a year into the new one, it has completely stopped working as well. While it appears to be connected and fully charged according to my system preferences, and it does scroll, when moving the mouse on the pad, nothing happens. Same exact issue I had with the first one. I love the functionality of this mouse, and since I have small hands it is much more comfortable than the regular mouse. They are just way too expensive to keep replacing every year!

    Best Mouse !

    • Written by from Seattle

    Beautiful, functional and smooth. Make my every day laptop experience so much more pleasurable and pleasant.

    It is a successful challenge to the traditional pattern of thinking. It even teaches you how to intelligently move your body. And yes, we actually do not need any buttons to feel an illusionary sense of control, just let it go, my friend !

    Best Mouse!

    Superb!

    • Written by from Quincy

    I hesitated to buy this mouse due to the negative experience I had with Mighty Mouse, but it has exceeded my expectations. The design is comfortable, elegant and, most importantly, eminently functional. If a mouse could be intuitive, this is it. At first, I didn't think it could right click, which I missed, but you can enable that feature in your system preferences, making it perfect. Thanks, Apple!

    Disconnects by the slightest bump

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    The mouse disconnects by the slightest bump. I've tried both normal batteries and the inductive batterypack; both has the same problem. So now I have a wired mouse next to it so I can quickly go to a terminal and run "blueutil off" followed by "blueutil on".

    If I were Apple, I'd solder a reasonably sized capacitor in parallel with the batteries. I looked at the dissection at ifixedit and concluded I would not manage to get it back in one piece if i tried this myself.

    So why three stars and not one? Because when it works it's totally brilliant and I feel handicapped when it's discharged or if I forget it somewhere. Programmed gestures to switch virtual desktop is alone worth its price.
