    Mouse Causes Pain in Hand

    • Written by from PROVINCETOWN

    Puzzled that this mouse has been around for several years, and in spite of many complaints, it hasn't been redesigned.

    Having the latest technical features in your mouse can't trump having to o to a doctor because of pain in your hand. I also developed a callus on the part of they hand where the wrist meets the rest of the hand.

    I'm returning to Apple it pronto!

    Unexpected coming from Apple Apple

    • Written by from Camano Island

    Hardware failed after 14 months. Mouse is recognized but cursor is frozen, even after trying several suggested solutions. Optical lens apparently not working. Expected higher quality from Apple.

    Nice looking, bad using

    • Written by from Cold Brook

    Apple has always made cool looking innovative mice, that are uncomfortable to use. The original mouse - too square and boxie.
    The bondi blue hockey puck - hard to hold because its round
    The Apple Mouse - close!! The little trackball sometimes is a problem.
    The Magic Mouse - too flat.

    This has always been a problem for them, because stuff that fits in your hand isn't attractive. For me I use a competitors wireless mouse 5000 because its big and round and rubbery and fits nicely in my hand and works very well for a long time.

    I love Apple products, but they don't do mice very well.

    worst mouse i ever used

    • Written by from MILTON KEYNES

    which numpty decided a flat mouse was a good idea. a hand naturally sits curved if you use your finger tips to push buttons and do gestures. Your palm is left floating in mid air or your finger tips hang over the top. Cant believe this gto through testing. just give it an inch more height and just make the top surface for gestures... jeeeezzz

    terrible

    • Written by from Brandon

    Do not buy this mouse.
    It was the worst money I ever spent, it frequently won't click on what I want it to but instead minimized the frigging window, the back falls off of it constantly and will not go back on, and it often sends me back to a previous page in safari for no discernible reason... I move the mouse and all of the sudden I'm back 4 or 5 pages.
    Exceptionally frustrating, could not use for more than 6 months until I was ready to throw the stupid thing through a window.

    PAINFUL contemplating class action suit for carpal tunnel it's that bad

    • Written by from Peoria

    Mouse seems great but then you use it.... if you are a casual user then great. If you are using this mouse for any kind of work for extended periods of time, i.e. greater then 5 min literally, you will be in for a shock. HAND AND WRIST PAIN TO DIE FOR! My hand and wrist will hurt for hours after use due to the extremely poor ergonomics. sleek design, cools gestures and function do NOT make up for the terrible terrible design. If your hands aren't super small DONT GET THIS MOUSE!

    Cool features, NOT ERGONOMIC

    • Written by from Bothell

    At first this mouse is great because of the gestures. However you immediately recognize how non ergonomic this mouse really is. After extended use your hand and wrist will start to experience pain. My definition of extended is anything over 30 minutes to an hour. I've never experienced this pain from any other input device I've ever used on any system. Be warned!

    Ergonomics

    • Written by from vaughan

    Apple did a great job at developing this mouse in terms of function, however, the ergonomics are terrible. Using the mouse for longer than 20 minutes is painful.

    Please Re-design the Magic Mouse

    • Written by from Montreal

    After several months of Magic Mouse use, I sum it up as follows:

    - It eats through a pair of AA's every month
    - It's not as ergonomic to hold as my 13 year old Intellimouse Explorer
    - The laser doesn't work well on my veneered table and causes the cursor not to respond sometimes when I move the mouse -- my Intellimouse on the other hand works flawlessly.

    I wanted to like this mouse as it compliments my Apple setup but it got bested by a mouse designed 10 years earlier.

    My hand Ache

    • Written by from Singapore

    Well functionalities are superb. But the mouse is so flat and it is very difficult to get use to it, if you are going to use it for a long hour, your ring finger will start to ache. and the edges are too sharp so After a long hour of use your whole hand will start to ache.

    the sensitivity one these mice are utter c r a p.
    wired mice are the way to go being more direct and fluid like.
    the only thing that i think is goos about it the scroll anywhere on the mouse. but other than that, go with a logitech. 26$ for a mouse that you doing have to be disappointed with. or be hip and write a less-than-3-star review

    An unstable, useless, poorly designed piece of....

    • Written by from Boston

    I've never hated an apple product before - yes that's right HATED BUT I HATE THIS ONE. Your magic mouse regular sends my pages off to god knows where just about the time I finish writing them and requires I start all over again. I've had it with this useless piece of junk. I've made every effort to learn what the magic is to getting this to stop bouncing my pages around and snatching them away and I'm finally giving up. It is unstable, unpredictable, and I'm bringing this piece of JUNK back to the store tomorrow for an old fashioned wired mouse if necessary. Someone really screwed up on this one. Steve Jobs would not be very pleased with this mouse that acts like a rat. I urge who ever is considering buying one of these things not to do it. You'll be sorry if you do.

    Cool features. HORRIBLE ERGONOMICS

    • Written by from Hattiesburg

    Good idea, cool looks but thats about it. The motion gestures and scrolling you can do are handy but sometimes it is too sensitive or a left click will register as a right click. My biggest complaint is the shape. This mouse is for the most part flat on top with only a little bit of curve (does not fit naturally to your hand) If you will be using it for extended periods of time for programs such as Illustrator or Photoshop this mouse simply won't do. I have had to stop using mine completely because it makes my hand hurt.

    Irritating to say the least

    • Written by from Champaign

    Often times, it loses connection connection as often as 1-2 times per minute. Then I have to wait 30 seconds until it connects again. I have to put fresh batteries in it about every 3 weeks or the frequency of disconnects increases. This is totally unacceptable to me, especially when you consider windows all seem to be void of arrows to scroll at the side and bottom of open windows now.
    The cost of batteries for a year is enough to put me in a nasty mood. There's no excuse for this.
    I'm shopping now, to see if there is an acceptable replacement.

    Awful. Glad to be rid of it.

    • Written by from Frederick

    After dealing with the awful thing I am finally rid of it and thrilled to have a Logitech mouse with real buttons. The Magic Mouse is wildly oversensitive - look at it funny and you're on a page you had no intention of going to. I really did try to live with it but it made trying to do anything online a nightmare. It's an elegant concept, but badly, badly executed. Worst Apple product I ever owned with the possible exception of the latest iPod Nano...

    Complete piece of junk!

    • Written by from Edmonton

    Mine was getting disconnected fairly frequently, like 1-5 times a week for months. Now it just doesn't work and will not be discovered by Bluetooth even though it has fully-charged Apple AA batteries.
    Apple, why can't you just make a wired USB version?!?!?
