    Not for long fingers

    • Written by from Bell Gardens

    Whoever designed this mouse probably had very short fingers, because I find it very uncomfortable to use it. I can see how a person with small to average fingers can use it, but it's too flat for people with longer fingers.

    Don't buy one if you use key commands

    • Written by from Hyde Park

    Very sleek, very stylish, nice to feel, but also very skiddish. If you use the command key for anything, you better get your hand away from this thing because your screen will start to zoom frantically. Holding command and swiping the mouse zooms your screen and this happens involuntarily ALL THE TIME. I'm a graphic designer, so I encounter this problem constantly. This mouse ended up being a nice looking seventy dollar annoyance. When it comes down to it, the best apple mouse I've ever had was the one from 1991 that had a square button and a short twisty chord.

    Just don't lift your hand

    • Written by from Camano Island

    Many things about this mouse are cool - the looks, the streamlined feel - but unlike every other mouse I've owned I can't take my hand off it. I do take my hand off my mouse to pick up a cup of coffee, etc but 30% of the time when I put my hand back on, instead of being ready to scroll or click the mouse reads the touch as a back click and does exactly that. It's annoying when I'm reading but if I'm doing any online games and say paused to answer the phone or take that sip of coffee, all my work is gone and then the mouse is lucky I don't own a shotgun. I also don't like the number of batteries the thing eats up. We've had this mouse for over a year but its days are numbered.

    I am a new mac user, switched just recently from PC.

    The apple magic mouse looks great, but I can't say the same about its performance.

    The mouse is a little uncomfortable to use - mainly because the curvature doesn't match the arc of my hand. I have to constantly keep my fingers slightly straight to avoid accidental touching or clicking.

    I'm quite disappointed, feature-wise. I would expect a $70 mouse to at least have a button for expose for more fluent movements. It makes me think that apple has put form over function for this one.

    As the mouse is wireless, batteries must be changes frequently. I am a student who uses the computer from the moment I wake up, which means the batteries seemingly lasts shorter for me than for users who don't extensively use the computer. Rechargeable batteries have an even shorter charge - more charging for me. I wish apple had provided us with the same mouse, but with a wired option. I now feel more inclined to use the mouse that came with my wacom tablet - ugly and bulky, but it works wirelessly and includes no batteries (magnetic).

    I find the edges to be uncomfortable. Fingers don't seem to glide over it as well as a trackpad for some reason. I always go back to the Mighty Mouse which I love for form and functionality.

    Looks nice but feels cráppy — Apple censorship :(

    • Written by from Munich

    I really miss a real, haptic mouse wheel that you can actually touch an spin. Using the mouse I always scroll accidentally and the surface feels hard und not necessarily what I would call "convenient and enjoyable".

    Battery hungry fella

    The mouse is great. It's not easy to manage with it but still.... Logitech stole the show :) As for energy. Well this is hungry fella man. It eats up the batteries.

    I hate this mouse!!

    • Written by from Mountain Top

    At first, this is a great little mouse. All of the features work well, and it's very convenient. But after having this mouse for a little over a year it just doesn't want to connect to my Mac anymore. I've tried everything - charging the batteries, replacing them - NOTHING WILL WORK!! If it didn't break so easily it might be worth the extra money it costs to get it, but after breaking so soon it's just not worth $70...

    Terrible ergonomics negate all the good features

    • Written by from Wantagh

    I bought the Magic Mouse with my new MacBook Pro. While I love the features of the mouse, it is terribly designed in terms of ergonomics. The mouse is WAY too small and slim and it makes it difficult to hold. The flat design does not fit at all the way a mouse should in your hand and actually makes it painful to hold the mouse. It will be going back to the store tomorrow and ends my streak of never returning an Apple product.

    Sad Day.

    • Written by from Corona

    Ok I got my magic mouse with my brand new iMac and absolutely loved it. I had a problem with the first mouse randomly turning itself on and off again. So I took it into the Apple Store, and after enough complaining and explaining my situation time and time again to employees/managers, I was able to get a new Magic mouse in exchange for my old one. This one has the same problems as the old one of turning on/off randomly, etc. etc. etc.

    So basically, i love the mouse, and all it's features of the multitouch etc. I think it's great. But for some reason, the thing keeps turning itself off still. So I think the Old Mighty Mouse is looking like a good bet right now.

    Interesting concept but inconsistencies plague this device...

    • Written by from Pound Ridge

    I was very excited to buy this device and use it with my wireless keyboard. Sadly, the right mouse button is very inconsistent. I can push the button over and over again in the same spot (at the right edge and/or right side of the mouse) and many times it will performa the correct right mouse button action, but then occasionally it performs the left button action instead. This is extremely annoying and interrupts the natural flow of mouse use. I have decided to return mine and use my previous logitech USB mouse instead.

    I'm giving this 2 stars because it is still very useful as a one button mouse. Perhaps they will fix this in a future incarnation of the wireless mouse.

    Just bought it - about to return it

    • Written by from Burlington

    Perhaps there are some good uses for this mouse but I'm not taking the time to find out, I plugged in my cheap Microsoft optical mouse from my PC and it works perfect so the Magic Mouse is going back.

    I need a mouse as a supplement to the track pad because I spend so much time on the computer and the skin on my finger can only take so much, the sharp edge on the Mac cuts into my palm and the change is good to reduce carpal tunnel symptoms. If I wanted a separate trackpad I would have just bought it - although I may still do that to get away from the sharp edge and let me use my laptop in other positions.

    I agree with the other negative comments I read about performance. Its too heavy, too slow even with the settings maxed out and takes too much wrist and hand movement to negotiate the screen. If the basics aren't covered then the rest don't matter.

    As for how it looks on my desk, this is the least import feature. Most of the great comments I read start with its appearance. If it works great AND looks great bonus but let's start with works great.

    I know it is my fault not reading more carefully what this mouse does but with its smooth surface, I had expected it to have very similar functions to the trackpad on my new Air. I have tried using Magic Preferences but that is way too complicated for my needs and they aren't joking when they say that tapping can be difficult.

    It is a pity because I use my Air as a desktop and I had hoped that the MM would work as a substitute for the trackpad. Back to Logitech.

    Range is terrible

    • Written by from Broken Arrow

    I really wanted to like this mouse (like every mouse Apple has made) but here they just missed the mark. The concept is just Amazing but in use it doesn't work for me. The range is terrible. Unless the mouse is setting next to the computer it "freezes" and skips when you try to use it. also it is VERY small. I have large hands I had trouble gripping it and moving it. If you are a woman who uses the mouse right next the your computer or Macbook this may be a great mouse but for Men or people who have their keyboard and mouse under their desk on a tray or sliding drawer this mouse does NOT work.

    Battery killer, poor quality control

    • Written by from Érd

    The bundled Energizer batteries lasted 30 days. Other batteries may last as short as 9 days.
    The tracking speed is way too slow for comfortable use, even on the highest setting (OS's fault).
    I bought mine new and it was scratched on the bottom out of the box, and the right click has a noticeable play accompanied by an unpleasant clicking sound.

    Great mouse for light use, but an ergonomic nightmare

    • Written by from Lubbock

    Pros: incredible scroll action, beautiful design, Bluetooth connection

    Cons: physically painful to use, Bluetooth occasionally loses connection

    After a week of using this mouse heavily for 7+ hours each day, I experienced significant pain/swelling in my wrist and twitching in my fingers. I am 25. It was a little scary.

    My hands are large, which meant I had to strain to hold the mouse’s narrow body. Because of the mouse’s low profile and sensitive touchpad, I couldn’t rest my hand on the mouse. I also found the weight of my hand caused accidental clicks because the click button is large and sensitive.

    The finger-swipe thing is a good idea, but it makes the mouse slide back and forth. I found it easier just to click to navigate.

    Ultimately it was a frustrating and painful tool to work with, despite its sleek appearance. I switched to an ugly Logitech mouse and no longer have to sleep in a wrist brace (one of the mouse’s hidden costs for me).
