    I do a great deal of typing and the battery drains incredibly fast. Talk about a waste. Also, occasionally the connection is lost, which is terribly annoying while I'm in the middle of work

    Magic mouse

    • Written by from Aguadilla

    I have used up to date 2 magic mouse. Like other users have also shared, this mouse works great but both of mine have stopped working before a year of use. The mouse is expensive to be replacing it every year. Also when it does work it tends to disconnect frequently and this is a very frustration situation. I don't know if the track pad is better or not but I will be trying that next or use an aftermarket mouse to do the job.

    Completely Unreliable

    • Written by from HUNTINGTON BEACH

    I loved this mouse so much that when my first one stopped working after a year (and yes, the batteries were fully charged) I purchased a new one. Now, less than a year into the new one, it has completely stopped working as well. While it appears to be connected and fully charged according to my system preferences, and it does scroll, when moving the mouse on the pad, nothing happens. Same exact issue I had with the first one. I love the functionality of this mouse, and since I have small hands it is much more comfortable than the regular mouse. They are just way too expensive to keep replacing every year!

    Listen to the other reviews. Try working with a speadsheet and have the thing zoom your sheet 100 columns to the right out of the blue.

    I was in the Albany, NY store a few days ago. They have 8-9 iMacs and a few minis. It used to be that only 2 or 3 had the trackpad and the rest were the "magic" mouse. Now, there is only ONE iMac with the magic mouse. I wonder why that is?

    Maybe I'm "holding it wrong". This mouse should be recalled. I want it swapped for a wired mouse.

    Worst Mouse Ever

    • Written by from Sylacauga

    If you use Photoshop or Illustrator at all this mouse has a mind of its own! I have used it for a few months now and it will skip all around and never do what you want it to. Also if you are gaming of any kind on your mac it doesn't handle that well either. It works fine with simple things like surfing the net but that is about it.

    My recommendation: if you do any design or gaming don't buy!!

    No support

    • Written by from Chicago

    Looks beautiful but my hand ached immediately. I agree with a few reviews on here stating that there is no support for extended use. I've used a mouse for working all day in graphic applications for 20 years and my hand never ached like it did with this.

    Terrible for design

    • Written by from Buffalo

    I am very disappointed with this mouse. It seems like a step back from the mighty mouse.

    No Expose
    I am a designer and use expose all the time with the mighty mouse, and now with this new mouse I am limited to only two buttons. I am constantly trying to find buried windows with no success in pressing my mouse.

    Double swipe
    Not very useful and only works if you get your fingers in the right position. Not to mention at times it does it without you wanting it to.

    Too sensitive or not enough
    My designs are always flying around my window because I accidentally swipe my mouse, but if I want it to scroll, it takes too much concentration. It's very touchy.

    I wish my new iMac had come with the mighty mouse and larger keyboard. That's the other thing that's terrible, the small keyboard is just too hard to work with. My command/option/control buttons are smaller and trying to design with shortcuts is a pain.

    Not for Graphic Designers!!!

    • Written by from Toronto

    I have been using the Magic Mouse for one day now and have already noticed two flaws.

    1. The double click feature doesn't work anymore when you want to minimize a text box in InDesign.

    2. The double-click feature doesn't work to open Master Pages in InDesign.

    If anyone can come up with a solution, that would be great. Otherwise, I'm returning this product. Anything that slows down my work is a waste of money.

    The worst electronic product I have ever purchased!

    • Written by from Chicago

    What is going wrong with Apple? How can you ship a product that is terrible and never works well. First of all, it keep disconnecting, even after I did reset of wireless configurations. Second, every time that mouse is two or three feet away from macbook, it disconnect. Third, it kills the batteries every month.

    And its the most expensive mouse in the market.

    Shame on you!

    you're gorgeous...

    • Written by from Victoria

    ... but it's just not working out. you're way too unpredictable. I'm afraid I'm ditching you for your friend logitech m510. Seriously - I've been trying to use this mouse for work for the past 3 months and I just can't take it any more. Way too sensitive when working in illustrator or InDesign. You're zoomed in trying to move an object precisely and Magic mouse decides to go for a run to the opposite side of the page - really really frustrating. Maybe it's me and not you?????

    Worst Mouse Ever

    • Written by from closter

    I have had this mouse for about 6 months now and have paired it with a 2009 Macbook Pro and a 2009 Mac Pro. Neither machine ever stays connected to the mouse for more than 10 seconds. The thing doesn't ever work and, in the extremely rare occasions when it did work, i couldn't move the mouse more than a foot away from the computer.

    Great idea, horrible execution.

    I Hate This Thing

    • Written by from Honolulu

    I have to use one of these for work and I have come to hate it with an unreasonable passion. It is hard to use for 8 hours, and by the end of the day my wrist and hand ache. It's basically a cool looking torture device.

    Beautiful Design = Horrible Ergonomics

    • Written by from Houston

    if you have your mac as part of a museum piece, this it the perfect mouse

    However if you work on the computer 8-10 hrs a day better get another mouse this will definitely give you carpal tunnel or at least kill every muscle/ligament of your hand/wrist.

    Not good

    • Written by from Nieuwerkerk ad IJssel

    For me this mouse is not good. It might be technically a magic product, ergonomically its a nightmare. I can't work long with this mouse, my hand is going to hurt. So I had to change back to my old (Logitech) mouse. The same applies for me to the wireless keyboard: I will change it soon to a normal one. That's my feeling with apple: they sometimes put (too) much emphasize on design forgetting usebility. So yes the mouse and the keyboard looks great, but that's all I am afraid.

    Mac Pro No Go

    • Written by from Seattle

    The performance of this mouse with a Mac Pro ranges from annoying to infuriating. Poor tracking, sluggish response, erratic behavior, frequent loss of connection... short of administering random high voltage shocks to the users, it's hard to imagine how it could be worse.

    I've tried three of them on two different Mac Pros with the same result. Apple won't admit the mouse isn't compatible with the Mac Pro, but a quick net search makes the point very well.

    It does magic on it's own.

    • Written by from HUNTINGTON BEACH

    If you are a designer, stick with the Mighty Mouse. I purchased this in hopes that the super cool options that it has would benefit all the precise work I do in Illustrator and Photoshop...not so much.

    At first I loved it. It was heavy enough to where it felt substantial and LOVED the swiping up, down, and around features...until I had to actually work. The touch is far too sensitive, there is no control to help lower the sensitivity that I, a Mac veteran of 18 years, was able to find.

    My biggest peeve is that it flings my artboard all over creation on it's own and cannot get into the fine areas that I need without it getting all squirrely. I have resorted to using my older, and stuck trackball Mighty Mouse and am more happy with it than I am the Magic Mouse. The control with the older version is much more precise.

    looks good, but is the most uncomfortalbe mouse I have ever used.
    The mouse is much too low, hence unless you have kids' hands, your hand will hurt like A LOT after a while since your fingers are always extended! You don't believe, try it!

    Have swapped back to my previous one.

    Sorry, apple, that thing is really just for the eye, but not for working with it.

    Better than original, but not amazing

    • Written by from Charlotte

    I have to be honest, I was excited when I watched the video about this new mouse. And yet, when I went to the store I was sorely disappointed.

    I will say first, it is a great improvement to the old mouse. Mac does many, many things well. However, that original mouse sucked. Logitech and other companies put out a much better mouse. Microsoft makes terrible operating systems, but they make a good mouse.

    With that said, this new magic mouse did feel better than the older one, and yet it was still not (in my personal opinion) true Mac quality. My reason for this is based on my playing with it at the store.

    My first problem was I have large hands, it was not built for big hands. I stand at 6'4" and my hand was cramping trying to get my fingers in position.

    Secondly, there is no expose button, this is a HUGE problem.

    Thirdly, the stiffness of the click is not enough. Let me explain this one. Each mouse it seems has a different level of stiffness to the plastic in order for you to "click". When I was using the two-finger swipe feature I found I was accidentally clicking the mouse also because it wasn't stiff enough. The new MacBook Pro is much better because you either have to tap, or give it a good push for a "click".

    The final problem is the width of the mouse and no option to change the sensitivity. I would love to see more features to change the level of sensitivity so that I could scroll a bit faster or slower. It is a bit narrow of a mouse too if you are trying to get two fingers to swipe (remember I have larger hands).

    Overall it doesn't get my approval, I have used with my Mac (and will continue to use) the Microsoft Natural Wireless Laser Mouse. It fits a larger hand, has buttons that can be assigned to Desktop and Expose and is also wireless.

    I am hoping they improve their mouse and one day maybe it will be up to the caliber of their other products.

    Shiny but useless

    • Written by from Newtownabbey

    The magic mouse looks very good, and when it works is incredibly powerful to use. The operative keyword here being *when*. The mouse keeps disconnecting all the time, every three or four minutes, which is very quickly becoming very annoying, especially for a mouse that is by a large margin the most expensive on the market. What happened to quality control...? I used to be happy to pay premium for Apple products because I knew they just worked. Apparently, those days are long gone.

    In theory, nothing keeps me from going back to some old-fashioned reliable USB mouse, if not for the fact that Apple still considers USB ports a luxury even on their high-end products (my MacBook Pro 2015 comes with a grand total of two (2!) USB ports).
