    Great But Terrible Battery Life

    • Written by from Roy

    The Magic Mouse is awesome so long as you're using the Magic Prefs app and don't mind constantly swapping batteries. I ended up purchasing the Mobee wireless charging system to offset the constant need to replace the two AA batteries every month

    eats batteries

    • Written by from strongsville

    I love the features of this mouse but I'm changing batteries every two weeks! I wish apple would make a magic mouse that had a cord. The only reason I bought one of these was because I was sick of cleaning the track ball on the normal mouse.

    Otherwise I love this mouse the scrolling is a little slower than the older mouse but not bad.


    Please lets go green and make a magic mouse that is corded

    Battery hog

    • Written by from Katonah

    It works well enough, but uses 4 times more batteries than my old Logitech. Also, the battery cover/plate pops off easily.

    Good but could be better!

    • Written by from Federal Way

    The mouse once connected works great! But bluetooth connection is really poor, it takes way too long to connect and sometimes you have to click coupe of times to connect to my Mac Pro!

    On the fence

    • Written by from San Diego

    Geek factor is through the roof. There's no doubt this mouse is cool. The bigger issue is getting through the day without feeling like I put my hand into a blender. A nearby Logitech m705 is my "gotta get stuff done" mouse.

    Works as advertised, but..

    • Written by from Chula Vista

    The mouse works as advertised. The multi-touch gestures are great on a mouse. The problem is the actual size and shape of the mouse. My previous wireless mouse was raised to fit perfectly in the palm of your hand as you hold the mouse. The Apple Magic Mouse is very low and can start to feel uncomfortable after a while because of its almost-flat design. Yes it looks innovative and futuristic, but I suggest you check it out at the store to see if the size is right for you.

    Love this mouse, but.....

    • Written by from Manassas

    I love the Apple Magic Mouse but it has a significant problem that I cannot overcome in spite of significant research. When I started using the Google Chrome web browser, which I love for it's speed and minimalist approach, the Apple mouse kept going back to the previous page when I was scrolling on a 27" iMac Retina. I could not get other mice to replicate this problem so I had to conclude it was the Apple mouse. Finally, I gave up and started using a wired Kensington trackball Expert Mouse which took care of business. I would prefer the Apple mouse but it was driving me crazy. Unhappy since I was using two of the Apples with a recharger. I even tried the long shot of using batteries but that didn't work either. If anyone has any ideas or solutions, I would be gratified to hear of them.

    Good mouse.

    • Written by from Toronto

    The mouse is sleek & Cool. Quite responsive. My beefs are: you always get it upside down, cause it is same on both ends. Most kids would seem to have trouble maneuvering it due to Large sizet.. One star is gone for quite expensive cost

    Good, but could be better for the price

    • Written by from Mamaroneck

    Unlike what other people are saying, this mouse works great for me. I don't have connection issues, the battery life is good, however, my only problem (which is arguably the most important) is how uncomfortable the feel of the mouse is. I'm really depressed, because I do love the mouse and it's features, but it's sharp edges bother my fingers after a while. I'll give it a 3/5 because I've only had it for a week and I'm getting a new mouse.

    Awesome but with very short life use

    • Written by from Naranjito

    It is a smooth and incredible mouse. I have had three of them, but it does not because I like too much it because it suddenly stop working and need to be replaced (if it is in warranty period). Design and functionality 5 stars, short life use 1 star, so I give it three stars.

    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…

    *** Alert; Scrolling needs =or>10.6 to work ***

    • Written by from SEATTLE

    Either It’s not clear, or even stated under the “System Requirements”, although the mouse works in 10.5.8, the scrolling feature that does not work unless the system is 10.6 or better.
    …This straight from an Apple tech support person. Disappointing. Please pay more attention to the details on your web site Apple.
    Thanks.

    Great mouse, but it is small

    • Written by from Rochester

    I have relatevely long fingers and big hand, it is great mouse but they should make it a bit bigger in size and more high to fill your palm. it is so slim and tiny for me. I am back to work on my tacking pad. Apple, you should produce a bigger version.

    Watch out for the ergonomics

    • Written by from Lilburn

    At first I really liked this mouse, but eventually I found I needed to hold/move the mouse with a great deal of space under my hand unsupported. The tingling in my fingers told me to switch to something a bit more ergonomic.

    Think I'm going to return it

    • Written by from San Antonio

    Bought this "magic mouse" yesterday. I don't see our feel the magic. I'm 5'6" and my hands are of average size but I find this mouse still too small for my hands. I also like the option of a clicker scroll, either this doesn't have click as an option or I haven't located it yet. To compensate for the absence of the clicker I've adjusted the sensitivity to minimal as any unavoidable contact with the surface of the mouse causes the cursor to move. In support of this mouse it does have a lot of other swipe between pages and stroll functionality but I find that useless if the cursor doesn't stay where you need it. I'm going to give it another day or two but my initial evaluation is that it's not for me.

    Good but dissapointing

    • Written by from Troy

    I have used another brand of wireless mouse forever, and I miss the comfort and style and ease of use.
    I have been using the new Magic Mouse for about six weeks now, which means I have gotten use to the difference. That was big at first but once I got use to the tracking difference and everything, I don't notice the difference that much, except for one big problem.
    I may be the only one in the world that has this problem, but when I left click something and drag it to drop it in a folder, the dang thing unclicks and I drop it in the wrong folder way too often. In other words, you have to hold the left mouse button down very firmly and make a conscientious effort not to let go until you are ready, then let go. With the other brand it did not require "thinking" to click and make extra effort to hold the button down.

    3 Stars - an average of extremes

    • Written by from Larchmont

    Pros:

    1. The touch surface on top is far superior to the rollers on other mice, because it's (i) two dimensional and (ii) continuous (not subject to the "clicks" of most rollers). Side swipes are "back" and "forward" in Safari and I use them constantly.

    2. Well, #1 is it. But it's a big one…

    Cons:

    1. Right click is almost non-existent. In fact many reviewers assume there is NO right click. It's there, but (at least on my device) I must click at the very right edge in a certain spot, and even then it works only half the time.

    2. Ergonomic mess: sharp edges and low profile, as noted by many reviewers.

    3. Battery life - An ecological disaster if you don't use rechargeables

    Conclusion: Right-click fail will cause me to shop for a new mouse for gaming. A shame; I will miss the touch surface.

    Note on other reviews: mouse sensitivity is an O/S setting, my friends. Not an attribute of the mouse. If you have too much or too little "travel", change your settings!
