    Coolest Mouse Ever...

    • Written by from Aurora

    The coolness factor of this mouse is not to be denied, however with that being said I have had some issues with it. It is sluggish at times and needs to be rebooted to get back to original speed. Even with this problem I would highly recommend this product. Once you get used to it, using any other type of mouse seems odd and outdated.

    It's Awesome, But.....

    • Written by from Grass Valley

    I do agree with most of the reviewers that the magic mouse is indeed awesome. It can handle any job out there, but if you use it on surfaces that are not granite or some other hard surfaces it tends to wear a nice little area free of any surface treatments that have been applied. I think it is when they made the magic mouse with the two little runners that run the length of the mouse, they just wear the surface out. I would recommend a mouse pad if you are using it on wood.

    Great, but not excellent

    • Written by from hewlett

    First off, the tracking and scrolling on this mouse are extremely customizable, you can make them both extremely fast or slow. The tracking and scrolling are both extremely accurate, the mouse never jumps, and it scrolls with momentum. Another positive is its small size, on multiple occasions I have put it in my pocket and forgot where I put it, it ways so little. If you use Energizer batteries, this baby will really run as long as Apple says it will, which is several months. Works on most surfaces.
    Cons: This mouse has no buttons except right and left click, so if you play a game that requires a lot of keybinds (World of Warcraft), I would suggest you get another mouse. Does not work on glass, works to a limited degree on marble, so think about where you will use it before buying.

    Here's an idea, how's about something other then White!

    • Written by from herndon

    I actually bought this mouse because of the weight, I was looking for a heavy wireless mouse. The smooth surface is nice for making finger motions to control zooms and scrolling, the locations for right and left click are spot on, I never get the wrong one without a physical button. After you have it paired, make sure you check for software updates, and install the wireless mouse 1.0 software/drivers so you can get the added features mentioned... It tends to scrape against the desk I'm using it on, so I've been putting a book underneath it till I dig up a mouse pad... Power button on the bottom isn’t that big a deal, I’ve yet to have it snag on anything... if your putting it on a soft mouse pad I could see it being a problem (but it’s pretty obvious that’s a bad idea).

    After about 18 hours of use (over 2 days) the battery life is 93%... so take that for what it’s worth, also keep in mind that most wireless mice eat batteries, it’s the nature of the beast, however I can already tell it’s going to be a far cry short from what it says in the Q&A If your looking for an upgrade from the stock mouse Apple ships with it computers, It’s a vast improvement... I really like the smooth plastic surface. It’s easy to clean, which is my main issue with Apples white keyboards. If you like 5 button mice, this mouse isn’t for you, I think the scroll works as well as anything else with a physical scroll wheel...

    Is it worth $69? Maybe if it came in black.. but seriously, we all have a different idea of what 69 dollars is worth, so go to the store and try it before you buy it. I like it, but that’s me... really wish it came in a color other then white.

    Freakin' awesome mouse - sucky battery life

    • Written by from Florence

    I LOVE my magic mouse. Navigation is made almost disgustingly easy and it's just so cool! My only dislike is the length of the battery life. I've had it for about 3 months and have changed the batteries about 5 times. Granted, this could probably be helped if I turned it off when I was done, but who really remembers to do that? It's definitely not a deal breaker, as I'll rave about it to anyone who asks, but be sure to keep a good stock of batteries around.

    Overall ... Pretty Impressive

    • Written by from Mississauga

    5 .. Appearance
    5 .. Presentation
    3 .. Ergonomics
    4 .. Features
    4 .. Tracking Performance
    4 .. Value

    I just purchased this mouse and have been using it for almost a half day now. It's looks are stunning - pictures don't do it justice. Of course, like all things in the world, it's not perfect.

    Let's start with the ergonomics. It's obvious; it's definitely not the most comfortable mouse out there - it's just too sexy though, so you just won't care. In any case, it's not even that bad! I was a former Logitech mouse user so I definitely have experience ergonomic, comfortable mice. The magic mouse is going to take some getting used to for sure, but once you do it's really not bad at all!

    If you're thinking about upgrading from the Apple Mighty Mouse ... DO IT! The might mouse was terrible - I had so many problems with the scrolling using that stupid trackball.

    Overall ... I do recommend this mouse to anyone looking for something to compliment their Apple computer's beautiful design and their Apple keyboard.

    Almost Perfect

    • Written by from San Antonio

    This mouse is truly magical! There is no doubt Apple provides a caliber product. What keeps this from being a perfect piece of hardware? No USB recharging capabilities. Wireless mice are nothing new. Apple's spin on the mouse breathes new life into an old idea. Why not take it to the next level? The design is sleak and sexy. An ergonomic feel and precise onscreen response pushes this mouse ahead of the pack. The innovative interface allows intuitive navigation for the end user. What the end user will be wondering though is, why can my ipod and iphone charge via USB and not my wireless smart mouse? USB rechargable Magic Mouse from Apple. Hey, there's an idea. Wireless keyboard review is next...

    Good mouse. Really stylish and beautiful. Only thing I didn't like about it was the price, but if you really want a good mouse and you're willing to invest some money I would definitely get one

    Don't blame the tracking issues on the hardware

    • Written by from Hillsboro

    As many others have complained the Magic Mouse is having slow tracking issues. This should have been fixed in a OS X update rather than having to install a 3rd party app such as "MouseZoom". The problem lies with the tracking speed granularity which can also be manually modified with the following command: "defaults write -g com.apple.mouse.scaling VALUE", where VALUE is a non negative number - just experiment a little bit and try small increments until it's been fixed.
    However, the hardware itself is authentic Apple, stylish, simplistic and sexy. The mouse does have a button but the scroll is touch based. Sometimes it can hinder web navigation when both button and touch are pressed simultaneously.
    Overall I am very satisfied with my purchase.

    Vast improvement over mighty mouse, but they could have done much more.

    • Written by from Raleigh

    The removal of the ball alleviates many problems of a fouled scroll ball from its predecessors. The annoying problem of the misinterpreted right button click from the mighty mouse was also corrected. So this mouse is a pleasure to use on the basis of the elimination of these problems alone. The scroll gesturing and the zoom is a much more natural motion than with the old undersized ball of the mighty mouse. I think Apple missed the boat with what they could have done with the gesturing, like adopting the pinch motions from the Iphone/Ipad for zoom control, saving the user from reaching for the key. They also eliminated the side buttons and the center click with no replacement. So you will need to assign corner zones for expose and the dash board. They could have easily added extra gestures for these functions and many more.
    Over all, the Magic mouse is a vast improvement over the Mighty Mouse, but it remains an unfinished work of art.

    Love it

    • Written by from French Lick

    I use it with a mac book pro and love the product. There is a very small delay but not a big deal for me. I use it for basic functions like web browsing and word. I would not use the mouse for gaming and/or photo shop though. All and all i would give it a thumbs up

    Good mouse, but would like to give 3.5 stars!

    • Written by from Lynnwood

    I just bought the Mighty Mouse and I'm having some trouble with moving it on an "Oriental Rug" looking mouse pad with complicated patterns, which I dearly love. I needed to slow down on my movement with the mouse on this particular mouse pad. On the other hand, I tried the Mighty Mouse again on an ordinary bright red circular mouse pad from IKEA with my normal "mouse-moving speed", it worked fine. It also worked great on my light wood color dining table (no pad).

    So, I guess it's made to work on multi-surface, EXCEPT complicated pattern mouse pads. Overall, it's a great mouse, but it comes across as very flimsy. I'm afraid if I drop it, it will shatter or chip one of the corners. I really wish Apple would come up with some kind of mouse carry case or glove.

    So Far So Good...

    Picked this up lately at the local apple yesterday. Been nice so far. After months of fighting with a sticky trackball life is good. Still getting used to it. Found on some sights the zoom is a little touchy though.

    Evaluation - New Apple Magic Mouse

    • Written by from Woodbridge

    We are very pleased with our new mouse. We have a large screen IMAC, and our previous mouse (original) was extremely difficult to manipulate when changing screens, apps, etc. In contrast, with this mouse we can effortlessly navigate the entire screen in one pass. One open issue, what is the battery life of this product with normal usage? We shall see.

    Very Pleased

    • Written by from APO

    I'm very pleased with the mouse. It's a little different than other mice but takes only a few minutes to get used to. Take your time and try to hold it in a store or use it before buying.

    If I could change anything, I would like the mouse to have a recharging cradle similar to iPhone.

    What happened to Spaces?

    • Written by from Kenosha

    I just got it and have to say, this is the best mouse from Apple. However, I do work with Spaces quite a bit and do resent the fact that it can not be activated with one click as I did with the third button in the mighty mouse.

    Overall a great mouse, but it doesn't make sense to me that Apple will stop supporting one of the best features of it's latest OS.

    AMAZING!!!

    • Written by from SEATTLE

    I've owned two of the previous wireless mice made by Apple. They were great until they lost the ability to scroll. This new one is amazing! I have confidents that Apple has fixed those issues with the old and made this new one even better. I don't know how they do it, but they've it well.
