    Stopped working after one year

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    My Magic Mouse stopped working after about a year of use. A year is not a particularly long lifespan for a wireless mouse, especially the most expensive one on the market.

    I am very disappointed with the Apple Magic Mouse. It is always losing connection and uses new batteries all the time. I Love Apple products and own many, however, this is the worst product they have ever made. My husband and I have ordered a new Mouse and it will work much better than this ever did!!!!!!!!!

    Magic Mouse - NOT

    • Written by from Oakville

    Very frustrating to use, far too sensitive, bad ergonomics and eats through batteries! Will never buy another or recommend it to anyone.

    Extreme dissatisfaction with Apple none magic mouse

    • Written by from Tulsa

    I must express my extreme dissatisfaction with this product. It literally drops apart after a few weeks. The bottom plate comes loose as it is not foxed in a proper way. After that the batteries disconnect or physically drop out and the product works erratically. I even made the unwise decision to buy a second one naively assuming it was a unique product problem but this is definitely is a a none-magic mouse experience.

    I wouldn't buy one

    Too big, too heavy, difficult to work with. You need to move your hand and wrist quite a lot in order to get mouse movements.
    The gestures are nice (scrolling, zoom...) but over all its not a good experience. Switched back to my old one.

    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).

    Agonizingly bad. Seriously.

    • Written by from Coimbra

    It's a beautiful piece of hardware and it would be at home in a museum. On your hand, while you're trying to get any work done, however — that's a whole nother story. It's perhaps a nice choice for someone who's considering using it for no longer than 30 minutes a day — any longer than that, you're bound to end up with several hand, wrist and even shoulder aches. If design is how it works, this is appalling design. I'm selling mine, a week after buying it, and going back to my faithful old Logitech.

    Terrible Connection - Wish I could give it 0

    • Written by from LONDON

    Hands down the worst electronic product I own. I have never written a review before but this mouse enraged me to do so. The connection is TERRIBLE. If I get more than 3 minutes of connection out of it I get jittery waiting for it to say connection lost. I looked online and there is advice saying that if using a MacBook pro it needs to be placed in an "optimal position" for it to work. I just not sure what that optimal position is. I have even tried using it on top of my mac so they are physically touching but it is still unreliable. This is also disappointing as the only support available seems to be that we "are using it wrong"

    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!

    Unreliable, difficult to work with

    • Written by from Seattle

    I got a 2013 iMac and it came with a wireless Magic Mouse. I've found it to be painful to work with. Finder windows are always scrolling around because the mouse is so sensitive to touch that large amount of unintended movement takes places. Applications constantly are misbehaving with unintended scrolling, documents moving around with slight touches to the scroll surface. It frequently disconnects in the middle of something and I have to wait for Bluetooth to reconnect.

    Apple is trying to too hard to do cool things and at the expense of functionality.

    Do not waste your money

    • Written by from Jacksonville

    This is the worst mouse I've ever used. I like the design of it, but other than that, it's so hard to use. Sometimes it just scrolls for no reason, oh, and it just disconnects, like at least 5x a day. I'll take the old Apple Mouse with the roller ball that stops working after awhile over this one any day!

    Actually zero stars.

    • Written by from Conover

    Others have said it as well as I can. Try to click on a link, the page bops up and down can't hit the link to open it. Try to right click you get a left click action. A $25 Logitech mouse does a better job. Okay I can use it like a track pad, sort of, but thats not how I use my mouse so a useless feature. I recommend you try one extensively before wasting $69 on this very pretty and very annoying toy.

    Ergonomics nightmare

    • Written by from Copenhagen

    This is the worst design I've experienced in quite a while. And when I say "design", I refer to UX design, not aesthetics, because the only positive thing to say about this nightmarish piece of hardware is that it looks fantastic.

    There are no buttons on this thing, or rather, there are no tactile buttons. If you dare touch the top of mouse where your fingers are, any number of random things happen; you zoom something, you click something, you swipe-navigate something, or content in the window you're hovering over will dance up and down as daring to rest a finger on the mouse means that you're in the midst of scrolling.

    Eventually you learn that resting any digit on the upper part of the mouse is a big no-no, and you end up in a painful thumb-and-pinkie-grab on the mouse with your three remaining fingers cramped upwards hovering over the mouse. This will eventually cause the muscles in the hand to ache and cramp up, a pain that continues after you've stopped using the mouse.

    Actually clicking with this mouse is also frustrating — this mouse actually has a right button, but you have to mash the mouse so far on the right side for it to register that more times than not, right-clicks erroneously become left-clicks.

    Also, the battery cover on the bottom keeps falling off.

    Worst. Design. Ever. I want to destroy this mouse with a hammer.

    Worst product ever!

    • Written by from Oxfordshire

    I like to use this mouse in Photo Shop and in Auto Cad. Very frustrate I must say.

    The problem is that because all the upper part of the mouse is sensitive and also scrollable, whenever my index finger tough the upper part, it changes the size of my screen and/or icons, because you know, being a designer, your left fingers usually on Control Key or Command key. This cause a great deal of frustration. Sometimes I just want to bin this freaking so-called Magic Mouse.

    Need to make only the middle-upper part of the mouse scrollable. Not all upper part of the mouse.

    Only Apple can do that.

    Constantly drops connections

    • Written by from Santa Rosa

    Hundreds of articles on how to fix this; but none that actually do.

    Mouse goes crazy with some sites, like Google maps.

    Overly sensitive on the edges.

    Just a constant frustration.

    Worst Apple product I own.

    Connection Issues Are Dreadful

    • Written by from Hartlepool

    Lovely device, but only when it works.
    Not sure at all why support threads are littered with connection problems and still no solution.
    Changed battery types, peeled back battery sleeving and even a brand new macbook pro and a brand new magic mouse still suffer infuriating connection issues.

    Not a good product.
