    Tracking can be inconsistent

    • Written by from Houston

    When it works, this is the best mouse on earth — it is small and functions both as a mouse and a track pad. However from time to time it hesitates as it tracks making it very annoying to point at a small object on the screen. Do a search on line as this is a common problem. I even found two of the mice in an Apple Store to have the same problem.

    Awesome Mouse

    • Written by from Mahwah

    I love the Magic Mouse. I have had mine for close to 5 years now. It is the most versatile mouse in the industry. I would not give it up for anything.

    My mouse initially disconnected a few times a day till I found an article via a Google search. I put paper inside the battery cover and the problem went away. For the past 3 years, I have been using it without the paper with no battery disconnects.

    My only complaint and the reason I gave it four stars, is that I have to replace the batteries at least once a month. I wish the batteries on the Magic Mouse lasted as long as the batteries on bluetooth keyboard.

    I would definitely recommend this to everyone.

    Really cheap feel. Squeaks and feels plasticky.

    Great features, poor quality

    • Written by from Rancho Santa Margarita

    I like this mouse. I really do. It does what I want it to do when it does what I want it to do.

    The bluetooth is not reliable. It constantly disconnects and connects. Several times a minute.

    I have looked everywhere and done everything to fix the problem - even put paper in the battery tray to keep them in place and still it's just a piece of junk

    Apple says - make sure there aren't other blue tooth devices close by.

    Really?

    So you want to have Apple products in an office environment, but somehow you can't have more than one Magic Mouse within 10 feet of each other? Is that really reasonable?

    If I knew these problems were going to be so persistent I would not have spent as much money as Apple demands - which is pretty pricey.

    I expect better from Apple, but with every Update and every Apple product I get, the quality continues to lower their reputation.

    I don't buy Apple products expecting Microsoft results.

    Terrible product

    • Written by from Nepean

    Bought this product a few years ago when I bought my Pro with Retina, and the mouse was glitchy from the start. It randomly disconnects and you have to smack it on the desk for it to reconnect. Recently, I watched a Youtube video on how to take it apart and check to make sure the ribbon was properly connected. Did that, reconnected it, and it worked for about a week and now it does it's own thing. Terrible product and I told Apple but they wouldn't accept an exchange within the one year "warranty". Buyers beware.

    Apple Mouse

    • Written by from Crofton

    I read most of the reviews, good and bad. I decided, despite the bad reviews, that I would go ahead and purchase the Apple Mouse. Having had many Apple products, I knew that their stuff was first rate. I was not disappointed with the mouse. I think it is terrific. It is my second week of using it, and I have not one complaint!

    Ergonomics? Not Hardly

    • Written by from Hebron

    I love the touch capabilities of this mouse and gesture control with the MacBook. But I can't use this mouse for more than a little while. The shape of the mouse looks attractive and modern, but the design hardly caters to the hand. After using the mouse for more than 10 minutes, the hand becomes tires and strained. The low profile makes it difficult to grip the mouse well. Couple that with the fact that it doesn't glide well on most surfaces makes the accuracy poor. My mouse sits in a drawer most of the time and I tend to reach for my Microsoft USB mouse. No gesture controls with the MS mouse, but my hand is rests well and it functions much better, Apple....please redesign this mouse with ergo in mind and I will go back!

    Keeps disconnecting

    • Written by from Amsterdam

    The most annoying, worthless and expensive mouse I have ever owned. When it works, it's pretty awesome. But this mouse keeps disconnecting. Some days, it just disconnects and I need to reboot my laptop to get it working again. Other days, it just disconnects and directly after that connects again. Sometimes, it works without any problems.

    I would not recommend this mouse to anyone and I'm thinking of buying another one.

    For this price, you would expect a working mouse...

    Great! until it loses signal.....

    • Written by from Atlanta

    I live and breathe Apple products. This is now my second one (first one was great). This mouse is a diamond in the ruff......when it works. More times than not, it loses signal, which makes me lose ability to work or want to work. I kid you not, when a mouse loses signal 3 times per minute at minimum, it's really hard to get anything done. Not sure if something is wrong with this specific one or what, but I would definitely not recommend the wireless one to anyone considering this experience.

    Disappointingly Poor Tracking

    • Written by from Green Mountain

    My Magic Mouse came with my new iMac a few months ago, and honestly, has been nothing but disappointing since I began using it. I've experienced very poor tracking with the Magic Mouse, having tried multiple mousepads, surfaces, and positions for using the mouse. Though I love the whole "multi-touch" idea, the poor tracking makes for a disappointing experience, so I can't give a high rating in good conscience.

    Magical, yet expensive

    • Written by from Singapore

    This mouse is another excellent product released by Apple, and characteristically it is expensive. It's a great product, all the features work very fluently. Scrolling is very intuitive and responsive, and while it's not a gaming mouse it does't perform too bad while playing games. It's also compact, and it just looks great in general, but it does't live up to the 70 dollar price tag...

    Functionality < Looks

    • Written by from Richmond

    I like how the mouse looks, but simply put, its functionality does not match its elegance. Firstly, it's overly thin, making it very uncomfortable to use over long periods of time, and when you have the gestures on (which is necessary to make full use of this $70 mouse and get your money's worth), you cannot have both your index and middle fingers resting on the left and right click key at the same time, because it will activate the gesture to swipe your page left or right. Furthermore, because the left click and right click buttons are not clearly defined, it is very common to have your right clicks registered as left clicks. All this became especially apparent when I bought a Logitech M705. I was going to return it, because I found the scrolling slightly awkward, when I found myself honestly unable to revert to the Magic Mouse. The comfort and functionality of the Logitech M705 surpasses the Magic Mouse greatly, and knowing that I had to do an animation (which would require a lot of time on the mouse) I could honestly not fathom using the thin and uncomfortable Magic Mouse. Another short point that everybody might not relate with, would be the lack of macro buttons. Some would argue that the macro buttons are made up for by the gestures, but the gestures aren't actually programmable - they are preprogrammed. This is unlike macro buttons, which can be programmed to do every gesture on the Magic Mouse as well as open files, open applications, perform commands, and more still. Overall, I am genuinely dissatisfied with this product, and in my personal opinion, for $70, you can find yourself a much nicer, more functional and more comfortable mouse... my Logitech was only $40 on sale ($60 MRSP).

    Save your money! Not a fun mouse to use.

    • Written by from Palm Desert

    I should have listened to the negative reviews and kept my tethered mouse, but I had a cordless mouse before (until I dropped it) which I really liked. This one is very difficult to control. It flies around if I rest my hand on it, which I usually do. I sometimes have to click on buttons multiple times to find the sweet spot and get the buttons activated. It automatically sends me to the dashboard, but when I try to go there, I can't. I find myself wanting to throw it agains the wall numerous times during the day, but haven't yet. I'm considering switching back to the one with a cord, so I don't have to deal with this any more. I really dislike using it.

    Great mouse with one exception

    • Written by from Texarkana

    I read most of the reviews before I purchased the mouse, and was somewhat leery about buying one. I decided to take a chance, and I'm mostly glad I did. I'm not having any of the problems the other reviewers have had, so I'm happy about that. The problem I have with mine is that it looses connection with the laptop, and it does it fairly often which drives me crazy. Other than that, it's a nice little mouse.

    Excellent Mouse

    • Written by from Freeland

    I love this mouse and when I opened a second office I called Apple and wanted the exact same setup I have in my current office - a Mac Pro, the Thunderbolt monitor and a mouse. They sent me some cheep USB mouse, not the magic mouse. God, I hated it. The monitor was DOA, so when I called them I complained about the mouse they sent me. They FedEX'd me a new magic mouse overnight (which was nice of them) at no extra cost. When I received it I couldn't get it to sync until I tried new batteries, and then it worked. The batteries they included were dead. All of this has nothing to do with the mouse, except to say Apple has very good customer service. The mouse I'm addicted to - it's awesome. Using this on a Mac, it's nice as when the batteries get low I get a message telling me how much power is left. It works well on my desk but at my new office I have a glass top to my desk and it won't work on it - I have to have a mouse pad.

    This mouse is terrible

    • Written by from Toronto

    Bought one last year and it keeps losing a connection with BT but my apple keyboard isn't affected and it drains battery life quickly. Now I give up and I'm looking for another mouse. Oh my wrist hurts too.

    Dropping connection!

    • Written by from Astoria

    This is a very nice mouse with one very annoying flaw, it keeps dropping bluetooth connection! Every an hour or so it disconnects for a couple seconds and then you will have to move the mouse around while keep clicking to wake it up. I notices that it became an unconscious habit of mine. The mac support forum is full of this issue. I tried a couple of suggested solutions to fix the issue, nothing worked. Will have to buy another mouse elsewhere.

    Note: this is my 3rd Mac and all of them have had bluetooth related issues (mouse, keyboard, speakers). This is ironic considering that apple is moving away from wired connections (think new Macbook)

    Few other mouses mis the mark so well.

    • Written by from La Canada

    This mouse has a very straightforward design flaw: overloaded input.

    The touch of my finger simply does too much. When I click, the surface senses my skin's position changing, which moves the cursor so I can't select accurately. When I'm scrolling, my finger rarely runs perfectly down the middle of the mouse, so I swing left or right. When I try to click, it might work or it might not, depending on where my finger is on the surface -- which is a problem because I can't *feel* where my finger is on the surface.

    If I had to think of a metaphor for trying to use this mouse it would run along the lines of trying to tap a specific spot on a ball, while balancing that ball on another ball, and moving both balls to indicate where you want the mouse, while trying your hardest not to move any other part of your skin that contacts the entire apparatus.

    Very Sluggish. Bluetooth does not play nice since last Yosemite update

    • Written by from Delta

    I have been having nothing but problems. Bluetooth and mouse lose connect. Been to the store twice. The solution looks like wait for an update or use a different mouse. Do not buy until they have fixed the problem. Logitech mouse - receiver mouse is awesome and snappy. Like I said, do not buy until Apple gets this fixed. No use asking their tech people at store. They just want you to log the problem. How nice being a tester for Apple. Go Logitech non Bluetooth mouse and save yourself a lot of aggrevation.

    AWESOME

    • Written by from Grand Rapids

    Overall: 9/10 For me the elegance and unique momentum touch-tracking-scrolling features far outweigh the slight over-price. But this delicate piece of electronic art is about as tough as a wine glass. The cool plastic case it comes in which, ironically, is actually tough, should actually come a "handle with care" label on it. But still . . .My FAVORITE mouse, ever.
