    frustrating, don't buy!

    • Written by from Brampton

    I really dislike this mouse. It has very finicky touch detection. There are two major things that I've noticed: It constantly does not detect when I want to right click. More frustratingly, the touch interface which allows you to scroll constantly thinks I am trying to go to the previous page (when using the web), which has resulted in me loosing text I have entered in web pages.

    I do not recommend.

    would have been a great gift but...

    • Written by from winter garden

    just got a new magic mouse went use it for the first time and it did not scroll..looked up why and it said it would not work with my older software 0x 10.4.11 on my mac book pro...go figure.. same thing happened when i bought my i pad 2 and wanted to synch it with my mac book..hate the way apple makes new gadgets but u cant integrate them with apples you currently have that are running perfectly fine just the way they are..... now i have to upgrade my operating system again which i cant afford right now to use my new mouse...the stores should ask you when you purchase their equipment what operating system you are using to see if it will be compatible.There was no information on the packaging letting u know what operating system would work with the magic mouse what happened to customer service at apple...

    Awesome concept, great first couple months. Started losing connection a lot even after batteries were replaced. Fell off my desk and broke like a crystal figurine. Now I'd farther use a $10 Logitech wireless mouse that takes less batteries and never loose connection then pay $70 to replace the Mighty Mouse.

    Goes out to Quickly

    • Written by from Somerville

    I dislike this product because it just stops working and never works again. I have had two mice now and now my second one has stopped working. I haven't spilled anything on it I keep it along with all of my other apple products on my desk and now I am going to have to buy ANOTHER mouse. So to anyone looking to buy this mouse I strongly recommend you do not.

    Great if you have the hand of a small child.

    • Written by from BALWYN NORTH

    Although many people like this mouse, I have to say that it is nowhere near as good as it could be.
    First the good points:
    1) It looks great.
    2) Battery lasts for a while.

    Now the problems:
    1) Takes a while to engage with the bluetooth where turning it on.
    2) If you have any sweat or moisture on your fingers it is difficult and uncomfortable to use the touch scrolling.
    3) It is WAY too small. I have normal size male hand and it is uncomfortable to use for a long time.
    4) The scrolling mechanism can become very annoying during game play due to unwanted zooming. the slightest touch of the left or right button can begin zooming - sure you can change this in the settings, but that mean you need to do this for every application.
    5) Quite noisy when in using it on a laminated table.
    6) It would be good that the clicking would not be as loud too.

    Well, you can make up your mind.. Read the other reviews. You will see that many people have similar issues and the positive reviews hang on its good looking design.
    Over all looks good on the desk but uncomfortable to in use.

    Does not stand up to everyday use

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    Bought 6 iMacs that came with these magic mouses for work. Unfortunately after 6 months of everyday use...5 of these already have stopped working or our staff had to constantly unplug batteries and reset or reconnect via blue tooth. The iMac were a hit when we changed from PCs..but these mouse really stink!! Everyone has bought 3rd party wired mouses now. Sure, these mouses were cool looking, but they just don't live up to everyday use. Please avoid if you want more than the cool factor.

    Bad product

    • Written by from Maroussi

    This is the worst product Apple has ever produced. Very genius concept; very bad result though. Sometimes it stops working and you need to remove the batteries, then put them back. If you want to right click, you have to take extra care not to touch the mouse with any other finger due to the multitouch. Sometimes it lags very badly.

    A terrible mouse

    • Written by from Littleton

    I've used this mouse for over two years, on and off. It's an utter disappointment. You'll buy it because it's cute, and the promise of the touch surface is promising, but the reality is somewhat less than satisfying.

    First of all, the surface is too sensitive. It'll pick up your fingers holding/touching the edges to move the mouse and perform all sorts of strange zooms and pans seemingly out of nowhere. Additionally, there seems to be something wrong with the bluetooth (at least on the MacMini): whenever your disk is busy (backing up, moving large files, etc.) the mouse scrolling and clicks stop working. And battery life is quite poor, compared to Logitech and Microsoft mice.

    In particular if you have big hands, stay away from this mouse. It's a very small mouse, and uncomfortable to use for long periods. My hand would start to cramp after a while from the sort of "pinch" position at which I had to hold the mouse, because it was smaller than my palm. It's like using one of those tiny laptop mice.

    The biggest problem is you'll start making allowances for this mouse. It's bluetooth, so it's not very accurate. It's small and uncomfortable, and the touch surface is overly sensitive while its tracking is not sensitive enough. But it's ok, because it's Apple. When you do eventually try another mouse again--and you will--you'll find it's a world of difference and wonder what you were thinking ever using this mouse.

    The mouse is dying

    • Written by from Ashley

    I got my Magic Mouse in Oct. 2009. Worked great for a time but in the last year it has gotten progressively worse. It lags so badly now and acts as though there is no connection that I have stopped using the little rat. Drove me crazy! The old mouse stills works better than this one. I started using a Logitech mouse again and will go get a new one as I don't intend to use the Magic Mouse any longer. If you have some ideas on why this is please fill me in.

    Waste of money.

    • Written by from Kilwinning

    This has got to be the worst product Apple has made yet. Even if it was quarter the price, it would still be a waste of money! The mouse doesn't feel good in the hand; it just doesn't work ergonomically. Design over substance! Theoretically, its great on paper, the finger movements are all very Apple; but the Bluetooth lags, and the mouse is slow: even at the optimum speed. Very poor Apple, I am very disappointed with this. If I could return it and take back my money, I would.

    Burns through batteries

    • Written by from LOS ANGELES

    My $$ certainly does magically disappear on replacement batteries for this mouse. It came with my iMac and the Duracell Ultra Advanced batteries I use don't last for more than 2 or 3 months (max) -- and it's not the batteries, because they've been powering flashlights and remotes without a problem. For long-term use, this is a very expensive Apple "idea". For the environmentally conscious: where are all the drained batteries supposed to go? Are battery-recycling bins everywhere to be found? No! So what did Apple imagine was going to happen when Magic Mouse owners trash all their quickly-drained batteries?

    Loses connection, requires reboot

    • Written by from Montreal

    The mouse usually loses the connection to the computer after an hour or so, and often won't reconnect until the computer is rebooted.The bluetooth keyboard works fine, so I don't think it's a general bluetooth issue or similar.

    Most frustrating computer product I've owned in 30 years

    • Written by from California City

    This is my 6th Apple Mouse - 2 wired and 4 bluetooth and currently I am on my second Magic Mouse. Occasionally, it does work properly. And when it does, it really is Magic. It is, to me, an absolute gem as I have a sight problem and when this mouse behaves, my ability to maneuver objects, drag and drop and generally control my visual environment is fabulous - I am on par with anyone else. But (I estimate) about 80% of the time, it is so sensitive that it becomes wayward; it scrolls pages left or right and shoots them up and down and frequently zooms in (but not out) without any control or help from me other than that my finger(s) are in close proximity to the top curved plate --- NOT touching --- but close. Then, of course, with a sight impairment, it is more than disconcerting for me to find where the heck I am in an application or surfing the internet or even finding the cursor at all, at times. I have finally accidentally dropped the blasted thing in utter exasperation and now a new mouse is required - NOT, I hasten to add, an Apple Magic Mouse. I love the usual quality of Apple products - of which I have several - but this is utter rubbish. The concept is tremendous; its application is poor - very poor indeed - and my outboard Magic Trackpad is not that hot, either. Come on Apple: make us a sensible mouse at last.

    Looks good, feels good, works poorly. This mouse has not worked well for me at all. It's jerky and the cursor jumps all over the place. I'm a designer and makes using apps very difficult when doing really precise work with points/pixels. Actions like scrolling are intermittent. I think it has poor bluetooth connectivity. Also I often accidentally open widgets and can't swipe them away.
    I'm using it with Lion on a 15" mid-2009 MacBook Pro. Never had issues like this on my previous gen macBook Pro with wireless Mighty Mouse.

    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.
