    Not Good!

    Can't write the review due to sensorship. Trade it for a corded mouse. Thing doesn't work.

    Wish I could say different...

    • Written by from Denham Springs

    I wish i could be one of the ones giving high remarks and review... but sadly not. I am on my second one within my first year of being an Apple customer. Bought it with my 1st macbook Pro. Both of my magic mice I have owned had the same exact problem... constant loosing connection... over and over and over. When you make your living with this thing in your hand... it is so disappointing. I have read these reviews as far back as 2011 and it seems nothing has changed. I have also had all the issues of the sensitivity and it swiping you to another screen without you touching it and closing or exiting an application before you ever touch it. You either hate it... or you love it. I am very close to the "hate it" point. I have to say, I took the first one back to the apple store and they replaced it immediately. I am sure they probably would this one... but who wants to keep going through the same thing!? And then there is those that will tell you to not pay attention to the "negative" reviews... That's a crock of bull. These "negative" reviews are real and they are the truth... as much truth as all the positive ones. If people were going to lie in a review... do you seriously think they would do it on a mouse??? I went into the mall store today and was talking to an apple rep about my issue... his suggestion... buy a Mobee(sp?) super charger so you wouldn't have to worry about batteries. Really? spend another $40??? So I would have to spend over $100 (I spent $69 on the mouse!) just to get a mouse that works??? I cant believe that was his suggestion! I have to say as many others have... this is the only product from Apple that has ever disappointed me. Look... we all love all our other Apple products.. none of us would leave apple and go back to PC over a mouse issue... so why not make a good one!? I don't want another exchange Apple! I want a wireless mouse that works... Please.... pretty please.... pretty please with sugar on top! Can you do that? Will you do that? Can you imagine the change in all these reviews if you did!!?? I ... for one... would certainly come back and do just as i have done here... tell the truth!

    Love the product

    • Written by from Elberta

    Well made product! so simple to use even my 4 year can you it. I personally thank it would be even better if the top smooth part of the mouse could function as a track pad and mouse AIO...

    NOT for regular heavy usage.

    • Written by from Mission Viejo

    I bought this mouse about a year ago. I stopped using it about 4-months ago. I work from home and my work requires heavy mouse usage (CAD). This thing died on me so many times. I had to change the batteries so many times. It eats them in a snap!

    I went through a very large package of batteries in these months and I stopped feel comfortable changing the batteries so often. Both for the environment and the wallet.

    And also, if you enable "two-button" on the "magical" surface, and have a larger or heavy hand, then stay tuned to get accustomed to martial arts like focus on the mouse to get the job done.

    Then I decided to go with a $10 microsoft mouse. I couldn't be happier with the $10 mouse at the beginning and I felt freedom in my hand to do whatever I want.

    Now, the $10 mouse developed the double-click instead of a single-click issue.

    I thought I should write this review to give you heads up. I am currently shopping for a new mouse or buy several of these $10 mices. Still lower cost than this apple mouse that eats the batteries in no time under heavy usage (many clicks, many movements, extended work hours).

    My wishes:
    1) A more intelligent surface motion processing/sensing that can automatically understand that the user comes from a Microsoft two-button world.
    2) An automatic wireless charger. The technology is developed, ready for licensing and it is out there and Apple can use it off the shelve.
    3) ergonomics, this is a mouse not a decor!

    Android Phone and the Apple Magic Mouse

    • Written by from Philadelphia

    My Samsung Galaxy Note II (Smart Phone) easily connects to the Apple Magic Mouse via Bluetooth.
    This enables the Multi-Touch/ Multi-Gesture smart mouse to seamlessly control the Note II.
    A Clearly defined mouse pointer icon appears on any open window screen. Follow it to l easily and quickly open or close applications or multi-task on the phone, as well as maximizing / minimizing objects on each screen andscrolling quickly in any direction or page or groups of pages. This makes wide ranging scrolls across or through files, folders, lists, websites, photos, lightning fast.

    The Magic mouse's MAGIC is controlled by sliding a finger or two on or over the top surface of the Magic mouse. You do not have to physically move the Magic mouse.
    The Smart Gestures yield tons of controls for the Android Phone.
    Am I the only benefactor of this truly Unique integration of this device and accessories?


    The addition of a 9 inch wide Bluetooth keyboard completes a very capable and handy micro computer system.

    Pretty, and neat, but useless

    • Written by from Maricopa

    Ok the mouse looks great, and has really cool features.

    The multi touch input functions seem to integrate into Maverick really well. The problem is that the touch is too sensitive and it ends up doing some times things I do want it to do.

    The mouse is really uncomfortable. After using it for a little while, I've noticed it really does nothing to support the shape of the hand, or wrist.

    It also does not really move around on a mouse pad too well.. Its kind of jerky, and you have to maybe very slightly use more effort into getting the pointer where you want it. And on that super high res desktop, some times that can be a pain, over time it makes me really dislike the mouse. Using it on a different surface does really help.

    Give me the larger clunky 2 button/scroll wheel PC mouse any day. I actually felt forced to get a replacement from somewhere else.

    Sorry Apple, but design should never take front seat to comfort or useability.

    First bad Apple product I've owned.

    • Written by from Encino

    I sought out this review section and I never write reviews. But I simply can NOT let this go. I've used this Beelzebub-designed product for over a year now and it has never stopped being anything but ATROCIOUS.

    Let's just not waste your time and run through the complaints.

    -Enjoy replacing the batteries at an insanely ridiculous rate, like faster than Data's Bullet Blinders from the Goonies.
    -Enjoy constant "magical" shortcuts that you are not anticipating or want. Like sending an email you weren't done with.
    -Enjoy the dock constantly moving to your second monitor at the drop of a hat.
    -Enjoy trying to view videos and whoops your hand grazed your mouse now everything went to Diablo and your quicktime can't tell if you're saying fast forward or reverse.
    -Enjoy "magically" swiping screens you were just on out of the blue which is really fun during live broadcasts.

    This thing is an overly-sensitive battery-sucking piece of garbage and you might as well need to know sign language to master everything. If you have big hands like me you're basically sentenced to an eternity of unintentional shortcuts. I work for a company that gives me no choice but to deal with this demon spawn and I absolutely gnash my teeth every day.

    Save yourselves. It's too late for me.

    Good mouse, but lacks functions, easy to scratch and eats batteries

    • Written by from Richmond

    This mouse is good and was included with my iMac. however it lacks many useful gestures that the trackpad enables and also dies very fast (at least the battery is always lower when comparing to my keyboard in how much they each decreased to). However since the mouse is used more frequently and works harder than the keyboard I think it's probably my fault… but my friend didn't complain of this problem with his. The previous owner of the mouse's girlfriend (used machine) also scratched the plastic surface with a ring. That needs some improvement too…

    Very Good Mouse!

    • Written by from New York

    I read all the reviews and was thinking of not buying this mouse but while in the Apple Store I decided to try it. You can return it within 14 days not questions asked. It is a good product. It feels good in your hand and is quick and responsive. Once you get used to it you'll love it. I have no bad things to say about this mouse.

    Give it a try and you'll be happy with it.

    Do not listen to the poor reviews, this mouse is fantastic.

    • Written by from Burford

    I had reservations about buying the mouse due to the poor reviews, but I cannot understand where people are coming from. The battery is fine and does not run out fast, if you are not using it, turn it off! Secondly, the gesture commands are easy to get to grips with and I was using it fine instantly. With the right hand click and the multiple gestures available, it navigates on the mac extremely easily. Certainly worth a buy, although the only thing that I would have liked to have seen as an improvement is the zoom feature, you can zoom in on web pages using a gesture, but it only works on web pages, therefore it would be good if I could use the gesture to zoom in on Microsoft Word and Pages for example. Other wise, I think that the mouse is very good!

    Beautiful slickness, but frustatingly spotty performance

    • Written by from Stamford

    It's too sensitive, does what it wants. Using CAD or other graphics, it is most unprecise pointing device ever. Spotty, jumpy. Battery hungry as well. After almost one year of using it, I've had it. I'm looking for an alternative. Given the poor reviews on wired apple mouse. I am dissapointed to have to look elsewhere. Nice to make it pretty, but Apple, please make it work!

    Poor quality

    • Written by from Maggie Valley

    I've had this mouse for 2 years. I seldom use it but bought it to compliment the Bluetooth keyboard. It worked ok but I did get annoyed with the gestures. My problem with it is that it stopped working. It connects but will not move the cursor. I took it to the Apple Store and they wouldn't even look at it. Their solution? Buy a new one. They don't repair them only replace them. For $70 I expect it to last longer than 24 months of light use. I usually have good luck with Apple products but not this one. Basically you're just paying for the looks and the logo. Very disappointed. I'll be looking elsewhere for a replacement.

    Mobe Magic charger is solution to battery and disconnection issue.

    • Written by from Lachine

    I like the mouse but like everyone else, the battery connection and resulting dropped connection drives me crazy! I have however found a perfect solution and it is the Mobe Magic charger.

    Yes it cost $40, but it is a small price to pay and you always have a fully charged mouse. The reason it works is the battery and bottom plate as integrated and rigid, so there is no movement despite a little rough treatment.

    Note, even when the mouse is fully charged, it will only show 86% on the battery status. This is because rechargeable batteries have a lower voltage, usually 1.2v instead of 1.5v.

    Anyway, I have no more problems since using it.

    substandard product

    • Written by from Shune De

    Yep, after reading the stellar reviews

    got the mouse, the second time I have been stupid enough to do this, obviously changed the battery contact design material, as the mouse KEEPS disconnecting and going dead every time it experiences slight vibration


    Battery connection design so bad it does not break any oxide layers on the battery contacts, who in their right mind makes a completely FLAT battery contact?

    Perfection.

    • Written by from Ist

    Purchased this product today, first impression is how beautiful this mouse is ! It's unique looks and smooth multi touch gestures makes it the best mouse I've used to far, perfect quality and DPI sensor, which can be calibrated. One of the key things about this month is how thin and portable this mouse is, as portability for me is one of the key requirements, this Apple product is another hardware masterpiece !
