    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

    Eats batteries

    • Written by from Ste. Anne

    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.

    A complete waste of money!

    • Written by from Decatur

    I had this mouse for a couple of days, and it started to hurt my hand. On top of that, it is so unbelievably unreliable and will disconnect randomly. It's just a gimmick, in my opinion.

    the most disappointing product apple has ever made

    • Written by from Shiloh

    Could be phenomenal, but... like so many here have said, the lag and stuttering makes me want to throw it against the wall. I don't have disconnects, but, everytime anything that happens in the background (drive access, wireless access, etc) occurs this thing just stutters and spits and doesn't move or moves randomly. They really need to address this. I wish I could get my money back. I loved my mouse with my wacom tablet, but those suffer from other dependabilty issues (switch bounce)

    Worst to be used with MacPro

    Counterproductive for Graphic Designers

    • Written by from Milwaukee

    When I bought the Magic Mouse, the main thing I was excited about was the touch side-scrolling. For any designer who works in Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign at length, easy side-scrolling makes for an incredible, uninterrupted workflow. However, the shape of the mouse ended up impeding my workflow instead of helping it.

    As I tried to grip the mouse and side-scroll around my artboards, I would inevitably touch the top edge of the mouse's surface with my thumb or ring-finger, which would jump the cursor all around the screen (trying to avoid this resulted in hand-cramps). I've since switched back to using my cheap, plastic two buttons-and-a-wheel mouse. At least it's reliable.

    My side scrolling dreams were totally defeated by the sexy-but-unusable shape of the Magic Mouse. I would not recommend it to professional designers or digital artists.
