    Disconnects by the slightest bump

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    The mouse disconnects by the slightest bump. I've tried both normal batteries and the inductive batterypack; both has the same problem. So now I have a wired mouse next to it so I can quickly go to a terminal and run "blueutil off" followed by "blueutil on".

    If I were Apple, I'd solder a reasonably sized capacitor in parallel with the batteries. I looked at the dissection at ifixedit and concluded I would not manage to get it back in one piece if i tried this myself.

    So why three stars and not one? Because when it works it's totally brilliant and I feel handicapped when it's discharged or if I forget it somewhere. Programmed gestures to switch virtual desktop is alone worth its price.

    A complete waste of money!

    • Written by from Decatur

    I had this mouse for a couple of days, and it started to hurt my hand. On top of that, it is so unbelievably unreliable and will disconnect randomly. It's just a gimmick, in my opinion.

    the most disappointing product apple has ever made

    • Written by from Shiloh

    Could be phenomenal, but... like so many here have said, the lag and stuttering makes me want to throw it against the wall. I don't have disconnects, but, everytime anything that happens in the background (drive access, wireless access, etc) occurs this thing just stutters and spits and doesn't move or moves randomly. They really need to address this. I wish I could get my money back. I loved my mouse with my wacom tablet, but those suffer from other dependabilty issues (switch bounce)

    Worst to be used with MacPro

    Counterproductive for Graphic Designers

    • Written by from Milwaukee

    When I bought the Magic Mouse, the main thing I was excited about was the touch side-scrolling. For any designer who works in Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign at length, easy side-scrolling makes for an incredible, uninterrupted workflow. However, the shape of the mouse ended up impeding my workflow instead of helping it.

    As I tried to grip the mouse and side-scroll around my artboards, I would inevitably touch the top edge of the mouse's surface with my thumb or ring-finger, which would jump the cursor all around the screen (trying to avoid this resulted in hand-cramps). I've since switched back to using my cheap, plastic two buttons-and-a-wheel mouse. At least it's reliable.

    My side scrolling dreams were totally defeated by the sexy-but-unusable shape of the Magic Mouse. I would not recommend it to professional designers or digital artists.

    Magic Mouse 6 Month Review

    • Written by from Asheville

    This mouse is the best and worst mouse ever. When it works it is incredible; like a touchpad on top of a mouse....great. The bad part is when it gives up randomly and screws up your whole day to try and reestablish a bluetooth mouse when you don't have a working mouse. I have tried new batteries and everything. It just sometimes stops and won't come on. Then it will stay off for 3 days and then decide to turn back on. For these reasons I have to give the Magic Mouse only 1 star. Even if it is awesome, whats the use if it is totally unreliable.

    Wonderful mouse!

    • Written by from Montreal

    I really like the Magic Mouse. I got it by purchasing an used iMac, and I really like it! I like the two finger swipe feature to switch between apps. However, in gestures it's inferior to the Magic Trackpad. You can't open the Notification Center nor the Launchpad, and the two-finger double tap to open Mission Control is a bit hard to do. The two-finger swipe up would be better. A bit uncomfortable too, but a big improvement over the previous Mighty Mouse. Definitely worth the upgrade for any Mac user.

    Great mouse!

    I love this device!

    • Written by from Reno

    I have an older IMac and the mouse stopped scrolling. I replaced the stock optical mouse with this Blue Tooth enabled mouse. I love how useful this device is. You can place the mouse where it is comfortable then let your fingers do the work. You can scroll, swipe between pages and click simply with a touch of your finger. Wonderful.

    MY ARM HURTS

    • Written by from Ann Arbor

    As much as I'd like to say that I like this mouse because of the cool gestures, I really can't. 5 minutes with this mouse and I have wrist and forearm pain...this is the first time I've ever experienced anything of the sort in my 20some years of hardcore computer use. It is pretty clear to me that ergonomics didn't come into mind when designing this mouse. Fashion won over function apparently. I'm going to put this thing back in the box and buy myself a nice, comfy Logitech mouse. To go along with my Logitech solar powered keyboard. Apple, you need to work on your peripherals. Nobody wants wrist/arm pain, and nobody wants to change batteries. Period.

    Great mouse - but loses connection repeatedly

    • Written by from Yellowknife

    I like this mouse but it constantly loses connection with my MacPro. Very frustrating when you're on a deadline and have to repeatedly stop and wait for the connection to be re-established.

    Wrist pain

    • Written by from Geneva

    I've never had hand/wrist problems with computer use in my life until I started using this mouse. I've been using it at work for a couple of months now, I kept thinking I just needed to get used to it, but time is up. It's just evil.

    Can get very annoying

    • Written by from la puente

    Sometimes the right click doesn't work and if you are using After Effects or Premiere, prepare to get annoyed with the random zooming. This mouse is perfect for browsing back and forth between web pages because of its swipe feature.

    Junk

    • Written by from NORFOLK

    It's not clear from scanning the reviews how long people have owned this mouse. In my experience, it loses connection more and more over time. I have to wait in frustration until it reconnects. It always has fresh batteries. The metal back has come off so many times that I just leave it off. However attractive, I have ditched this mouse for a good old fashion plug in.

    constanlty mucks up!

    • Written by from kailua kona

    60% of the time that I hit on the mouse, left,front,back,center etc, during a game or using for everyday click, it RIGHT clicks and opens up Options instead of doing what it should. I despise this mouse but it was included in my newest iMac purchase and the mouse is pure rubbish.

    Horrible

    • Written by from San Antonio

    I'm on my second "Magic Mouse" and it again doesn't work well. It constantly disconnects from the computer (while in use), the right button works intermittently, it eats batteries, has unsteady tracking, and scrolls erratically. The first "Magic Mouse" had the same problems until it just stopped working. My wife has a "Magic Mouse" and it too has similar problems. My circa 2006 USB Apple Mouse works better than the "Magic Mouse".

    Annoying

    • Written by from Bedford

    I've had this mouse for over a year now, ever since I bought my iMac. It's a cool mouse, cool functions but every now and then Ill move my hand away barely touching the mouse and it'll move my whole screen. Thats not even the annoying part. The mouse constantly disconnects from my computer when Im using it, full batteries and everything. I have to sit here clicking away until it reconnects, it happens all the time. Sorry Apple, I'll be getting a new mouse with better bluetooth capabilities.

    Garbage

    • Written by from Baton Rouge

    I titled this"Garbage," because that is where my my "magic mouse" is. And not the first one, the second one. These things are cheap, and they are garbage. I wish I could have my $140 back. Apple should be ashamed for putting this product out. And I am NOT tough on equipment, these are just poorly made. Save your money and use the touchpad. It is a good indicator of quality that Apple won't let me use the word C.R.A.P. in this review. What are they worried about?
