    My Opinion

    • Written by from Ann Arbor

    This mouse is nice, but when I move the mouse sometimes get stuck get I get used to it. This product takes some time to getting used to, if you're having any problem go to system preferences> mouse> change anything there!

    I love it, although I did not at first

    • Written by from Pembroke Pines

    New to Mac (Sept 2013) A friend lent me his Magic Mouse and I hated it. If felt heavy and i worried about the battery life. However I decided to give it a shot; mostly because of esthetics since the Logitech mouse had the dongle eating up a USB.

    I was surprised at the ease of "configuration". It just worked and even named it my name's Magic Mouse. The battery life is exceptional. I have had it for almost 1.5 Months and the battery is still at 75%. I shut the mouse off at the end of the day or when going from customer to customer.

    I love it now and it keeps with the minimalist tradition of Apple. The only option I saw for Bluetooth mice, had a Micro$oft Logo on it, and you would not catch me dead with that blasphemy on my Mac.

    Don't waste your money!!!

    • Written by from East Wenatchee

    This mouse is horrible. It looks pretty, I'll give it that, but theres not much else to say for it.

    The surface on the bottom of the mouse is horrible, makes a scraping noise on whatever surface you use the mouse on.

    No dark field laser, so can't use it on a glass desk without a mousepad.

    Ergonomically it is horrendous - will certainly cause carpal tunnel in no time.

    You can't rest your hand on the mouse like you can with normal mice. If you do, you will get sporadic scrolling and zooming. This requires you to basically hold your whole arm up in the air to operate the mouse. Even resting a single finger on the mouse will cause random scrolling issues.

    20% of the time the scrolling doesn't even respond for a few seconds.

    Overall this mouse is plain unsafe to use, unless of course you like chronic pain in your arm for the rest of your life.

    Buy a magic trackpad instead, they're great!

    Amazing.

    • Written by from Liberty

    This mouse is amazing. I've had it since March of the year after it came out and it has never gave me an issue. It can be a bit of a battery eater, but that issue is easily solved with rechargeable batteries. It fits comfortably in my hand, and I don't know why anyone would say it doesn't. Sure, it's different and you don't use it with the same position, you don't lay your entire hand on it, but it's still very usable. It doesn't use a red laser like most mouses so it never blinds your eyes, and after installing MagicPrefs I can bind countless gestures to it and make scrolling work better. I feel like OSX should come with MagicPrefs as it is a MUST for a magic mouse, but this is a great mouse and responds lightning fast and doesn't have a wire that annoys you and takes away the functionality of the mouse. It even saves a USB port by working with the built-in bluetooth. It does need a decent mousepad to glide around on, as the rubber things on the bottom do not work well at all on a plain desk.

    Positively magical

    • Written by from Peoria

    Premium Apple build quality and design...this mouse looks and feels good. It is a bit small around the top which makes it awkward if you have larger hands. Click is responsive and accurate. Touch controls along the mouse surface respond remarkably well and the mouse is extremely accurate at determining the placement of your hand. Touch scrolling provides almost as much accuracy as a scroll wheel. Mouse is a competent and attractive companion if you're looking for a recreation/entertainment setup. Office use or heavy gaming may prefer a mouse with more traditional buttons.

    it's a little touchy...

    • Written by from El Segundo

    The mouse works okay...I really wanted a simple mouse that is wireless...
    I turned off all the gestures because all I really do is go up and down safari browser pages...

    When you are in Google earth and other applications, it starts zooming. I've concluded that my other finger is moving a bit on the mouse activating some of the gestures when I don't want them (so this is a bit frustrating).

    As others said, the battery life is not that good...but I have a bunch of Enteloop AA (white) rechargeable batteries on hand which I probably change about 1 time per month.

    Nice design of a mouse...I have 3-4 of them for my other computers and have not had any failures yet (unlike other reviewers)...and my kids have dropped it on the ground a few times already too.

    Good mouse, terrible battery life.

    • Written by from mississauga

    The battery life is about 2 weeks, and considering that I'm a graphic designer, I use the mouse quite a bit. The mouse itself is expensive, and you'll be spending even more money on batteries. You might as well get the charger with it as well. I've had this for about a year, and I have a drawer filled with empty batteries from the mouse alone. I lost track at 30 batteries sometime 6 months ago.

    Though the mouse itself is nice and I have no other issues with it other than the battery life.

    First impressions

    • Written by from Baku

    It's a little bit weird. I think it's because of meeting that kind of ergonomics for the first time. That's why my hand is not accustomed, but very functional and sexy (as all Apple products) and weight is a little bit much. For the reason of that sometimes problems appear. In general for the first impressions 3 stars. Maybe in the future it can be changed

    Unparalleled Mouse!

    • Written by from Coeur d' alene

    The Magic Mouse is the best mouse I have ever used! I do 3D modeling and animation and it is a LOT better and easier with the Magic Mouse. I do not like doing animation without it now! Good job, Apple!

    The perfect mouse

    • Written by from Prescott

    I’ve had my magic mouse for 2 years now. It still runs great. I accidentally dropped it on a slate floor. It made a horrible crash and the batteries popped out. I thought for sure my mouse was done for. But I popped the batteries back in, and it works just fine. Not even a crack to the frame. I was very surprised because it looks so delicate.

    Possibly some who are frustrated haven't configured it properly for their usage. If you don't like the zoom, turn off the zoom. If you don't like page swipe, turn off the page swipe. You don't have to use those features. Personally, I love the page swipe, but I don't like the zoom. So I turned off the zoom.

    I use my mouse constantly. I'm on the computer about 12 hours a day. My batteries last 4-6 weeks. I use rechargeable batteries. I've been alternating the same set of 4 batteries since I bought the mouse. That has probably saved me about $25.

    As far as range, I just tested mine from 10 feet away. I don’t know why anyone would need to use a mouse from 10 feet away, but it works. It probably goes even farther, but that’s as far as I could get and still see the screen.

    If you are having issues with it jumping around a bit, you probably just need to clean the optical eye. Use a dry, soft, lint-free wipe like the kind for eyeglasses. That fixes the issue every time for me. Also (as with any optical mouse) use a solid color mouse pad, no pictures.

    I would definitely buy another if this one died. I may even buy a backup in case the design changes. I’m very attached to this model.

    With Acceleration = 1 Star VS. Without Acceleration = 5 Stars

    • Written by from Cambridge

    The fact that this mouse does not allow users to turn off the "acceleration" component makes it virtually useless for 99% of users. That 1% would likely only be comprised of monks and people who have never experienced a traditional mouse without acceleration.

    It's not like when Apple released the MacBook Air - where everyone complained of the missing optical drive before realizing that they no longer needed it. (Although if you want to make that analogy, let us not forget that Apple at least gives users the option to purchase an optical drive add-on). This is more analogous to when Apple released their version of the internet with Apple e-World in order to compete with AOL. It failed. Apple pulled the plug on e-World and opted to instead develop a Mac client for AOL.

    We're not asking that you pull the plug on the acceleration aspect of the Mac, just that you give us the ability to choose a non-accelerating option.

    Scrolling is so seamless. Wireless works awesome with Macs. No problems at all. Scrape the gunk off the feet periodically against the edge of a desk and it glides all anew.

    Never had trouble with the shape. I find that the shape affords itself to a variety of holding postures, so my hand kind of moves around all the time.

    It's definitely magical!

    • Written by from New York

    Oh so magical…

    While using Google Maps, it magically zooms in and out all the time. Even when you don't want it to! (Especially when you don't want it too!)

    Pages and windows are magically swiped away when you least expect it.

    I wish my magic mouse could magically take me back in time to when I bought my MacPro and make me decide not get it. It's way too sensitive to touch and does stuff you don't want it to all the time. Unless you are really, really careful, Google Maps is unusable with this mouse.

    Other than that, it's great.

    Great Design_ Terrible Quality

    • Written by from somerville

    I'm generally a huge Apple fan buying over the last 10 years: 3 iMac, 1 AirMac, 2 iPads, number iPods and 4 iPhones.

    My only complaint is that I have had to buy 4 of these mice over the last 2 years at $69 each. I guess 5 since this one just stopped working today.

    Too many compatibility issues

    • Written by from Frisco

    1) The bluetooth antenna (which Magic Mouse uses) conflicts with the WiFi antenna. So if I try to use the Magic Mouse my WiFi signal drops within a few seconds. This is a known issue that has been discussed for over 2 years on Apple's forums. And it's not just the Magic Mouse, the Magic Trackpad has the same issue.

    2) The Magic Mouse doesn't work with MS Office 2011 very well. Especially in PowerPoint. The mouse moves erratically. Again, another issue that has been ongoing for at least 3 years.

    Amazing...if it's working

    • Written by from Carlsbad

    Multi touch features are obviously incredible and it's a pleasure to use. However, if you use it for about a year it just stops working. It seems to be made cheaply and I would really expect a lot more from an apple product. This mouse is a great idea but it is built at a quality worth half of what they are selling it for. Unless you are willing to replace this mouse annually, get a different one.

    Perfect but....

    • Written by from Parkland

    This is one of the best mouses you can get for a mac. It does almost everything the trackpad can do but in the form of a mouse. One problem I have is that the paint on the sides is starting to wear off, which I am a bit disappointed because it's not cheap. It's definitely quicker then using a trackpad. If you know how to use it well than it gets the job done.

    **For all the people wondering or thinking the mouse doesn't right click. You click the ride side of the mouse with one finger on the mouse only.**
