    It's not just me...

    • Written by from Danville

    A few days ago I watched a sales associate at my local Apple store struggling with the same unwanted zooms/paging/scrolling, which I have experienced with the Magic Mouse. Like many, I have turned off Screen Zoom and the two-finger swipe (and almost everything else). But after struggling with it for another month I just went back to my Mighty Mouse, which still functions perfectly with Lion.

    The touch-sensitive technology of the Magic Mouse is a tremendous step forward. It has not, however, been paired with adequate software. I find it odd that Apple includes this mouse with many computers, but requires software from a third party (not included it in the initial purchase) in order to make it function in an acceptable fashion.

    An Okay Mouse

    • Written by from Farmington hills

    This mouse is functional, as in everything works just fine. It's just that the size of the mouse makes absolutely no sense. The iPhone 5 was created with the design of the human hand in mind, and as a result, it's very comfortable to hold. Sure, the Magic Mouse is very small and sleek and looks cool, but it's uncomfortable to use for a long period of time.

    Best. Mouse. Ever.

    • Written by from Warrenville

    Perfect design, perfect function, great as Bluetooth. I was worried about the swipe functions but now absolutely love them/use them all day at work. This is the best mouse, and if you use the Bluetooth keyboard as well then you are rocking it.

    A power hog

    My logitech cordless mouse lasts 1 year on 1 AA battery. My Apple Magic Mouse lasts 1 month of 2 AA batteries. Yet another example of Apple's slow slide back to form before function

    Great Mouse...

    • Written by from Lake Worth

    This mouse is worth every penny, the gestures work very well and are very precise and its battery life is good.

    The only thing that I could complain about is the lack of gestures like many other users have said. That being relevant, an app called MagicPrefs can let you customize gestures and even add more gestures to do basically whatever command you would like...I really don't know why Apple did not include these customization options with their own drivers.

    I suggest anyone having issues with the lack of customization in gestures or custom 'clicks' should go and download MagicPrefs...you will be surprised at what you can do and how AWESOME really the Apple Magic Mouse is.

    Comfortable and has great scrolling but...

    • Written by from Edmonton

    ...secondary clicking, i.e. right/left clicking is a fiddle. For me there's not enough differentiation between a straightforward click and a right click. I was forever right clicking when I meant straightforward clicking, so I have gone back to option-key clicking.

    That aside, it fits well in my hand, scrolls well and looks gorgeous.

    Pleasantly surprised

    • Written by from Wilsonville

    After years of bad luck with every apple computer accessory under the sun. They've finally got it right. Totally surprised but this mouse always stays connected via blue tooth, has long battery life and simply works. Sure its not the most ergonomic mouse on the planet and it takes some getting used to but once you get past that its awesome. Thank you apple... Now its time to revamp your wireless keyboard because that one is still on my fail list.

    needs more gestures

    • Written by from Greenwood

    needs more gestures. needs to be more comfortable in hand. needs to be able to just tap as a click, right now you have to push all the way down and there is that annoying clicking noise it needs to have the option just like the touch pad to either click all the way down or to just tap. other than that great product.

    Not recommended

    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.

    Best Mouse ever!

    • Written by from Millbrae

    First off, it is expensive, too expensive. I bought it open item from best buy for $49.
    It is smooth, multi-feature/gesture is great. It is sleek and sexy, only if it was the flat aluminum that Apple uses on the Mac Pro so it matches more. Never going to use another mouse. I thought it was going to be hard to get used to, but its is not, 10 min and feels like I have used it before. It fits my hand, but barely (I have really large hands, So big I have never been able to buy gloves) but still fits very ergonomically.

    I've used mine for years and love it!

    • Written by from Maple Grove

    I was just browsing some of the other reviews. I am surprised at some of the low rated reviews. I have had mine for years and never have Bluetooth connection problems. I will say that the battery drain is frustrating, but I finally switched to rechargeable, which I should have done a long time ago. They are lasting longer, and are not so wasteful. The mouse can be a little touchy and I it takes some getting used to. The curser can jump away on you if you bump it wrong, but such a minor thing. It is sleek and comfortable, and best of all - no annoying cord! I love the multi touch gestures and any time I have to use a standard mouse, I find myself frustrated that the whole world hasn't discovered this mouse yet!

    A low point of an otherwise great computer.

    • Written by from Portland

    A touch pad on a mouse just isn't as good an idea has it sounds. You have to hold the mouse to move it while avoiding touching the surface or it will scroll when you don't want it to. Or when reaching for the mouse, you'll likely use the tips of your fingers to know where it is without looking... oops, you just scrolled. This messes me up most when web browsing has back attached to scrolling--I have lost a lot of comments that way. You can make this mouse work certainly, but why should anyone have to concentrate on making their mouse work? I'm a graphic designer and an avid gamer, so I have well developed fine motor control, but I find this mouse a pain. Especially if you are making the switch to Mac for the first time don't let this sour the experience. The very exellent Mac platform deserves a better mouse.

    Apple Magic Mouse

    • Written by from Escondido

    I have gone through two of the Magic Mouse's (aka Mice) in two and a half years. The first one broke. The second one keeps loosing connection. It seems to be overly sensitive to just moving across the mouse pad. A very little pressure on the battery compartment door turns the mouse on and off and this seems to be the cause it loses connectivity. Naturally one month after the warrantee expired so did my second mouse. Lucky I still have my old Apple wired mouse. Apple needs to replace this Magic Mouse with a mouse that reflects the quality of its other products. Except for this mouse, I have been extremely pleased with Apple products and their quality.

    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.

    the biggest waste of money

    • Written by from 100 Mile House

    Useless and awkward shape for human hand. Very unsuitable location of functional elements. For so much money I would recommend to look elsewhere. I do not remember that I ever regretted so much my purchase.

    Lousy Mouse

    • Written by from Ferndale

    I've been using this Magic Mouse since May 2012, didn't have any problems until recently. It constantly disconnects and reconnects this is really annoying and I don't understand why, also it eats batteries (it takes 2) like mad and the battery cover is not that easy to remove. . When I went from a PC to IMAC I had a Logitech mouse and rarely needed to change the battery (1). Does this mouse just wear out or is it a malfunction of the design. I really don't want to pay $60 for a new one after less than 1 year of use.
