    Brilliant mouse with so-so battery life and Bluetooth connection

    • Written by from Cape Town

    MOUSE
    This is the best mouse I've ever used. I spend about 10 hours a day in front of the screen, most of which includes design work of some sort, so you could say I'm a heavy mouse user. Of all the mice I've owned and used, this is the best one by a long stretch. It sits comfortably in my hand, it has a clean, clutter free design, and it operates very precisely. The single shell design with multi buttons are perfectly balanced, and scrolling always impresses - it really is a magical experience, compared to other mice.

    I don't like using a mouse pad, which results in the ski-strips on the underside getting a little mucky over time, but it's easy enough to clean to not influence my overall very positive experience with the mouse.

    BATTERY LIFE
    As mentioned, I am a heavy user, but having to replace the batteries every 2 to 3 weeks does leave a somewhat not-so-green feeling. I would say if it wasn't for the battery life, I would give this product a 5 star rating.

    BLUETOOTH CONNECTION
    I'm not sure if it's my MacBook or my mouse, but about once a week I lose my Bluetooth connection, with the mouse within 5 inches from my MacBook. This does seem a bit odd, but luckily getting it re-connected is only a swipe-tap-select away on my trackpad.

    Lots of room for improvement

    • Written by from North Las Vegas

    Been using my magic mouse for a while now. I love the gestures, they really take the mouse to the next level. However as others have stated the ergonomics are not the best. This mouse is heavy and has large contact pads on the bottom that seem to grip more than slide on your desk. Feels very much like sliding around a brick. My biggest complaint is the sides, I grip the mouse from the sides with my thumb and ring finger, and they are very sharp to the point that they irritate my skin after a few hours.

    Overall a great product, I am keeping my fingers crossed for some ergonomic improvements from future generations!

    Probably the coolest mouse I've ever had, but not good for gaming.

    • Written by from Clarence Center

    I bought one with my first Mac last year, a 13" retina pro, and I have to say it's amazing. It's got a sleek, yet basic design and it doesn't drain batteries like most computer mice I've used. I also love how it's all one button and a touch pad. The only complaint I have is it's not the best for gaming. Sometimes it thinks I scrolled or I right-clicked and it detected it as a left-click. I also love how it has gestures almost like the Mac trackpad.

    This is a review after having the product for about 2 years:
    Battery: I think it lasts pretty long. No problems with it
    Shape: I find it fine. Ppl complain that it is not made for big hands, but im 6'2'' and it fits fine
    Connection: very few times have I lost connection when I was using it. Sometimes when I first turn on my computer (Macbook Pro) it takes a minute or two to recognize the mouse, but usually this is not a problem.
    Price: It's a little pricy, but you get what you pay for. I haven't had any problems with it

    Conclusion: If you do not like using the trackpad or have to move your curser a lot, I would definitely recommend this product.

    Pricey but good product

    • Written by from cold lake

    I reluctantly bought the magic mouse for 2 reason. First all the bad reviews and second the price. I've been using the mouse for the last two weeks and so far I'm well pleased with it. I use it on my macbook air and it works great. The only down fall is the price.
    I had to try a couple times for my mac to connect to it properly but once it recognized the mouse I haven't had a problem since.


    In short if you're an Apple junky such as myself and don't mind shelling out the $$$ for a mouse do it!!!

    Amazing!

    • Written by from Bergenfield

    I love this mouse. I just got it two days ago but I can already tell that this will be my favorite mouse of all time. I just wish it had more gestures for productivity. This mouse is really comfortable to use. I am really glad that I purchased this mouse. Definitely pick this mouse up when you get the chance.

    Experiencing the Magic Mouse

    • Written by from Aurora

    I enjoy this mouse for it's ease of operation.It is a programable device for sensitive to not so sensitive touch.You have choices when programing this device.Perhaps it not the best tool for drafting,especially if you have very large fingers that are attached to a huge hand.Balancing your fingers all day on this unquietly designed tool may prove a bit challenging for some.There are other mice available to help correct your situation.Gamers really can't substantiate its use ,hardly any body complains about that.They get a proper gaming tool for their needs.This little tool is an all around device to help work your top of the line computer to its fullest.I use the Magic charging device as well,great little invention and yes it really saves from those ,weekly battery changes!.The unit assembled easily and works ever so great.I have many friends who use both of these devices and never experienced the problems and all the drama that has been associated with these functioning tools.These devices were not meant to last a life time.I purchased a second for back up.Please rethink the use before you make that purchase then do what you feel one must do in that circumstance.Good luck

    love this mouse

    • Written by from Victoria

    very comfortable in the hand; clicking and scrolling functions are responsive and have a positive controlled feel. a real pleasure to use!

    been using it for about two months and battery life is fine so far. i would like to be able to customize the pointer i.e. make it larger - maybe add some colour. overall I am very satisfied with this mouse.

    Great

    • Written by from Las Vegas

    I just got my first MacBook Pro and as much as I love the track pad on my laptop, I'm lost without a mouse. So I purchased a Magic Mouse. This thing is great, all the different gestures you can do, it works 10 ft away if I want it to, I really enjoy this product. The only issue I have with it is the battery cover on the bottom seems cheap. It's loose all the time, and I can tell it might need replacing fairly soon just because it doesn't seem to fit tight enough. But that's the only issue I have. Another great product from Apple. But it's time to give us a price break on your products though, you've made enough, we will always buy your products, just hook us up with some private discount codes or something. I think it's the least you can do.

    My Opinion

    • Written by from Ann Arbor

    This mouse is nice, but when I move the mouse sometimes get stuck get I get used to it. This product takes some time to getting used to, if you're having any problem go to system preferences> mouse> change anything there!

    Positively magical

    • Written by from Peoria

    Premium Apple build quality and design...this mouse looks and feels good. It is a bit small around the top which makes it awkward if you have larger hands. Click is responsive and accurate. Touch controls along the mouse surface respond remarkably well and the mouse is extremely accurate at determining the placement of your hand. Touch scrolling provides almost as much accuracy as a scroll wheel. Mouse is a competent and attractive companion if you're looking for a recreation/entertainment setup. Office use or heavy gaming may prefer a mouse with more traditional buttons.

    it's a little touchy...

    • Written by from El Segundo

    The mouse works okay...I really wanted a simple mouse that is wireless...
    I turned off all the gestures because all I really do is go up and down safari browser pages...

    When you are in Google earth and other applications, it starts zooming. I've concluded that my other finger is moving a bit on the mouse activating some of the gestures when I don't want them (so this is a bit frustrating).

    As others said, the battery life is not that good...but I have a bunch of Enteloop AA (white) rechargeable batteries on hand which I probably change about 1 time per month.

    Nice design of a mouse...I have 3-4 of them for my other computers and have not had any failures yet (unlike other reviewers)...and my kids have dropped it on the ground a few times already too.

    Perfect but....

    • Written by from Parkland

    This is one of the best mouses you can get for a mac. It does almost everything the trackpad can do but in the form of a mouse. One problem I have is that the paint on the sides is starting to wear off, which I am a bit disappointed because it's not cheap. It's definitely quicker then using a trackpad. If you know how to use it well than it gets the job done.

    **For all the people wondering or thinking the mouse doesn't right click. You click the ride side of the mouse with one finger on the mouse only.**

    Eats batteries

    This is a very good product except for the fact that it eats batteries at least 5 times as much as my microsoft mouse.

    Absolutely awesome mouse, instead of working with Photoshop

    • Written by from Veliko Tarnovo

    Really love it the design, the multi-touch features. It's great for everything, but Photoshop. If you're like me working with precise scrolling then this one is not for you.

    works great in 10.5.8 leopard

    • Written by from Toronto

    I downloaded software and connected without problems. Momentum scrolling is possible by using terminal application. just search for it. Works really good on my old powerbook g4, I like the momentum scrolling. Would have given it a 5 but software doesnt include the option for momentum scrolling.

    Connection problems

    • Written by from Новосибирск

    It loses connection constantly. Several times a day I have to realization that mouse isn't connected to my MacBook Pro. It isn't really a problem to connect it, but it's really annoying. Because each time you have to find Bluetooth mark on the top on the screen, and then in two clicks connect the mouse with MacBook.

    Love/Hate

    • Written by from Memphis

    I love the feel of this item and love how it works, but i hate that it requires batterie. My children use the computer a lot and it means I have a stash of batteries just for the mouse and keyboard to alleviate tantrums. Aside from the battery issue I actually love using this item and would recommend it to friends.
