    Awful

    • Written by from Charlestown

    This mouse is uncomfortable in the hand and causes involuntary navigation back and forward - a lot. If your surface has bumps it will switch off the mouse while moving and it takes quite a while to reconnect. I would have been better off with a $10 mouse.

    the sliders disintegrate

    • Written by from Aurora

    This mouse is fair, except the sliders disintegrate over time and with use. The metal piece that covers the batters now slides on the desk from time to time.

    No

    • Written by from Marco Island

    This mouse is horrible. Doesn't even touch your hand, can't move fast and HORRIBLE for any game that requires quick precise movements. Would not recommend to anyone.

    Great until it's not!

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    I have this mouse and it worked ok for a few months. But now even after I change the batteries for a new pair it still won't connect sometimes. I hate having to restart my computer because of this stupid blue tooth mouse! And changing batteries in your mouse all the time is stupid. For now I'm using a cheapy corded mouse, and it's so far more reliable, although not touch sensitive.

    I'll take an ugly one that works over a pretty one that doesn't.

    Try before you buy!

    • Written by from Boulder

    If you live near and Apple store it might be worth your while to give it a test drive. I was seriously considering this mouse so I went to my local Apple dealer and spent 30 minutes with the mouse. That was enough to convince me I didn't want it. I may be beautiful to look at, but ergonomically it is not comfortable to use. In particular I couldn't get used to the sharp edges. I have an Iogear bluetooth mouse that works just as well and is much more comfortable.

    My guess is that Apple will eventually come out with a redesign. I'll wait till they do.

    Too Sensitive for Indesign

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    I got so frustrated using this mouse with Indesign that I ended-up throwing it on the floor and plugging in my previous mouse. This "Magic Mouse" may be good for web browsing, but not for page layout and design work.

    Aesthetics over Usability - Disappointing performance and ergonomics

    • Written by from Zurich

    I paid 100 dollars as I bought mine in the Zurich apple store, for that kind of money the expectation is high. I use my computer all day working as a graphic designer and this mouse seriously slows me down and also causes me pain in my hand and wrist.

    The scrolling is too sensitive in the adobe programs and jumps around the pages at the slightest touch, this considerably slows me down.

    With the ergonomics the mouse is too flat and does not support the hand, i.e you can not rest your hand or fingers on the mouse. The sharp edges also are not nice to hold. I think it looks great but most of the time I am near it, it is hidden under my ugly hand.

    Performance-wise it takes ages to connect with bluetooth and I usually have to go into the preferences to get it to pair with my laptop. Battery consumption is also high.

    Im using my old mighty USB one now to work, as magic mouse is only good for browsing web pages for short periods.

    design=YES; ergonomic=NO; right button=NO

    • Written by from Göteborg

    I'm working with Mac more than 15 years. I never liked any type of Apple Mouse. I thought it could change with the new Magic Mouse. But unfortunately the design is not worth the bad ergonomic holding and especially not the bad function of the right mouse-button.

    So if you need the right mouse-button very often, then please don't buy this mouse. Unless Apple corrects the function...

    Connections Problems = Headache

    • Written by from Ocala

    Let me first say that, yes, the scrolling is revolutionary. Very helpful knowing that the non-existent trackball won't suddenly stop working due to over-use or dust collection.
    Having said that, i have never been so frustrated with a mac item, let alone a mouse. Aside from the fact that bluetooth drains the battery (a minor problem) the mouse has an extremely difficult time connecting to my Macbook. I'm a big gamer, to have my mouse suddenly and inexplicably disconnect mid-game is abhorrent. Upon starting up the laptop, it is a contest between turning on/off the mouse and on/off with the bluetooth on my computer until, finally, it connects (in hopes it won't disconnect). Quite frankly, i'd rather take up a USB port than deal with this annoying bluetooth feature. For a mac item to work this inconsistently, it is disgusting and disappointing. I love mac, but this mouse is a pain in my behind.

    Hard to get used to

    • Written by from Berwyn

    Very nice design, but hard to get used to. Scrolling feature is good, but handling the actual mouse is uncomfortable. Difficult to maneuver to point and click.

    Missing features

    • Written by from Harrisburg

    Somebody explain to me why they would build this magic mouse without the main features that we all are accustomed to?!?! The swiping might be easier but the side buttons and the middle button functionality is not there which I would have a VERY hard time not using on a mouse. Their answer is to use the FN keys on the keyboard or to click on the dashboard icon instead of the middle button. That to me is insane!!! Make me do more work to accomplish what I can already do with my current mouse. Only negative thing with the old might mouse is the ball gets worn but other than that there's no reason to upgrade to this magic mouse!!

    Magic Mouse

    • Written by from Sherwood

    I was excited when I first got the Magic Mouse. The swiping features are really cool. However, the tracking on this mouse is so slow and erratic (even when set on fastest tracking) that it is useless. I have turned is off and it is now a nice looking paper weight on my desk!

    Not up to my expections.

    • Written by from San Bruno

    Bought it online, and sold it the second day I received it. Whoever designed it chose looks over comfort. It doesn't fit well in the hand. Soon your hand will cramp.

    It does work as advertised though. however, swiping 2 fingers is as uncomfortable as it can get. They could better utilize the multi-touch surface and come up with gestures that ergonomically makes sense.

    Great features, poor quality

    • Written by from Rancho Santa Margarita

    I like this mouse. I really do. It does what I want it to do when it does what I want it to do.

    The bluetooth is not reliable. It constantly disconnects and connects. Several times a minute.

    I have looked everywhere and done everything to fix the problem - even put paper in the battery tray to keep them in place and still it's just a piece of junk

    Apple says - make sure there aren't other blue tooth devices close by.

    Really?

    So you want to have Apple products in an office environment, but somehow you can't have more than one Magic Mouse within 10 feet of each other? Is that really reasonable?

    If I knew these problems were going to be so persistent I would not have spent as much money as Apple demands - which is pretty pricey.

    I expect better from Apple, but with every Update and every Apple product I get, the quality continues to lower their reputation.

    I don't buy Apple products expecting Microsoft results.

    Very Sluggish. Bluetooth does not play nice since last Yosemite update

    • Written by from Delta

    I have been having nothing but problems. Bluetooth and mouse lose connect. Been to the store twice. The solution looks like wait for an update or use a different mouse. Do not buy until they have fixed the problem. Logitech mouse - receiver mouse is awesome and snappy. Like I said, do not buy until Apple gets this fixed. No use asking their tech people at store. They just want you to log the problem. How nice being a tester for Apple. Go Logitech non Bluetooth mouse and save yourself a lot of aggrevation.

    Love it, when it is working

    • Written by from Monticello rd

    This mouse is great, I love the side scrolling and how easy it is to use. BUT it is very difficult to pair with my laptop. A lot of the time it does not even turn on-I have wasted so much time playing around with this thing to try to get the little green light to come on to even try to pair it with my laptop. It is wasting more of my time than helping my productivity. I love apple products but this one is very frustrating.

    Waste of Money - High priced Apple garbage

    • Written by from San Antonio

    This is the worse mouse I have ever owned. The battery compartment is not small enough for batteries, so they can dislodge and the mouse randomly disconnects itself, then you have to turn it over and push them in. It even does this when you have a piece of notecard in their pushing them upward. It disconnects probably every few minutes. For how much money I spent on this, I expect Apple to have actually tested it and realized their design was flawed. If it actually worked it would be nice, but it is horribly annoying and wastes so much time in that you have to fiddle with it every few minutes to get it to reconnect because of the battery problem.

    Super Annoying Mouse that repeatedly disconnects

    • Written by from South Orange

    I have used this mouse for some time and have not had time to figure out what it wrong with it, but after reading other reviews, now know that it is the mouse. Please Apple do something about this. This little mouse is way too costly to disconnect like this.

    Avoid

    • Written by from London

    This is a dreadful piece of kit. It looks great, but barely functions as a mouse. Sometimes the cursor jumps about all over the place, and the tracking, although clever, is awkward and over complex for the task- what's wrong with standard microswitched buttons? Apple stuff can be great, but avoid this one and save your money.
