    Ever since jobs died apple has went down in flames

    • Written by from Chappaqua

    Dear apple to start off this review I just want to say that whatever you are doing is not working and people are not buying it anymore. You have a very poor business model, try to shoot for something like that of google.

    Anyways on to the review! As a long standing apple customer it is sad to see that your accesories don't get the same attention as and other products don't get the same attention as things such as the iPhone. With that being said they are all in need of a much wanted refresh with better design, technology, and quality control involved. your magic mouse seems to suffer mainly suffers in the areas that involve connectivity quality and design. the magic mouse suffers in design because the ergonomics are so terribly poor. As a well known technology review once said, "that's why the Magic Mouse is the spawn of Satan..." this is the magic mouses biggest problem. the next is quality. This is my second magic mouse, the first one had to be sent back because its touch sensitive areas were not functional. Lastly the connectivity. UGH the bluetooth technology in these mouses has to be updated in order for it to be 100% reliable. I am currently using a logitech mouse that is the exact same price on amazon that is worth every penny. Even myself, the regular high school student can see the faults and with all this said it's clear to see that it is not worth it to use this mouse with your laptop (because it is not included in the price) and to only use it with your desktop for a short period until you can get a better mouse at somewhere like staples for a couple of bucks.

    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"

    I thought my mouse might be defective but apparently not

    • Written by from clearwater

    The more time passes after Job's death, the more apple is showing missteps and poor decisions. It's like the teacher left the room and the students start goofing off and messing everything up.
    Mouse issues - Eats batteries, cover plate falls off a lot and way too easily - seems black tab is not machine spec'd well enough. Hates google maps and other map pages like the MLS - waaaaaaay too sensitive and zooms in and out incredibly fast and unintended.

    But the biggest annoyance is the amount of times per day it disconnects from the bluetooth even as it sits 6 inches away in it's usual spot.
    I am probably going to use my old kensington track ball that's on a usb cord - which should solve all of those problems.

    As an apple user since the beginning, I am really disappointed in the downfall in quality and design it is beginning to take little by little. I guess all good things must come to an end :P

    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!

    The best mouse ever (until it breaks)

    • Written by from Gainesville

    As someone who depends upon their MacBook Pro for design and video, I've grown so accustomed to the Magic Mouse gestures to control things, even simply navigating a web browser, that using the MacBook's trackpad or having to downgrade to a regular mouse feels like handicapping myself. The functionality is superb.

    But I've been through three of these, my most recent one having just died on me about an hour ago. It's frustrating that for such a great tool, the reliability is horrible, especially at this price. Every Magic Mouse I've had gets the eventual intermittent loss of connection that leads to being totally non-functioning. New batteries don't help. Using only rechargeables or using only alkaline or using only lithium batteries has done no good. Using a third-party charger seems to make the lifespan even shorter.

    I'm going to look into other options. I'm too frustrated to buy yet-another Magic Mouse.

    Not ergonomic

    • Written by from maple ridge

    It works perfect my only and biggest complaint is that it's not ergonomic, my right hand hurts and is getting numb.
    Too bad: I love it but if you have issues with your wrists hands or elbow... this ain't the mouse for you. I am returning it

    The good and the bad

    • Written by from Paintsville

    When I purchased my MAC in January, I debated on the magic mouse or the track pad. I chose the mouse. I wish I had chosen the track pad. Although the features of the mouse make it very comfortable and easy to use, I constantly have to pick the mouse up and start again when doing things. For instance, If I am navigating on a web page most of the time its fine, until I want to open a new page or exit out and want to navigate on the desktop. Its almost like the range of the mouse isn't quiet up to the size of the screen. I hope this is making sense. If i had a larger surface to maneuver the mouse on I suppose it would be fine. However, if you are trying to navigate with the mouse on a mouse pad, forget it. you will get frustrated. Im switching to the track pad.

    Looks good, feels awful!

    • Written by from South Pasadena

    The promises that apple makes about this product are true in that this mouse offers very good functionality, that is if you can overlook the extreme discomfort that your wrist is guaranteed to have even after the shortest amount of time with this product. I did enjoy the features that are well designed to mimic the trackpad with OSX however they are not worth the trade off of the wrist pain. After two months, I could not take it anymore and got a $50 Logitech mouse that is extremely comfortable and offers many of the features that the magic mouse offers. They are however in buttons and not in gestures so it does not feel as technologically advanced as the apple controls. I would definitely not recommend this.

    Hurry up & upgrade this product & don't buy one until they do.

    • Written by from Hobart

    I love the look, feel & use of this product when it works but I agree with so many other people on this, that it disconnects continuously, only seems to like one brand of batteries & only seems to work with those batteries whilst it is fully charged. As soon the charge seems to drop off it starts disconnecting again. I have searched high & low & tried every different "fix" that people claim to have found. I believe that as soon as Apple creates an upgrade for this product, any Apple consumer that has already bought one these should be able to return the old one and get a free "not so Magic Mouse" in payment for the years of pain & suffering for this intolerable gadget.

    I don't understand...

    • Written by from Hinesville

    It's not the mouse I don't understand! It's all the reviews that say they hate this mouse. I don't understand because this is hands down the best mouse I've ever used. I love it! I have NEVER experienced this mouse disconnecting and having to re-sync to bluetooth. Never, so I don't understand why so many people are saying they are having this issue. I've had my current MacBook Pro 15" for over a year with no issues. I have a MacBook Pro 13" for home use and have had zero issues. I previously owned a MacBook Pro 15" and had no issues with that mouse, either. So I am completely baffled that so many people are saying they are. I love this mouse!!! (I WISH I COULD CHOOSE 10 STARS!)

    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!

    Not the best

    • Written by from Courtenay

    I thought that with time I would like and get used to using this mouse, but no. It's harder to maneuver than a normal mouse and yes the added gestures are cool, but they are a little too sensitive and I find myself using them accidentally. Also, using the mouse just feels awkward. It's quite flat, so you are really just resting your hand on top which, again, makes it more difficult to use.
    I hardly ever use my mouse anymore; I'd rather use my trackpad. Needless to say, I'm moving on.
