Excerpt: This mouse is not much better than using the track pad. It is too difficult to depress to make it click so that over time it causes strain on the hand. If I could use any other mouse with my new bluetooth Macbook I would use it. I used to have a mouse with buttons, which was so much better to use. Also if you don't hit the exact correct spot for a right click you don't get it to work properly.
Summary: I hate this mouse almost as much as the stupid trackpad. One of the worst interfaces in computer history. Terrible battery life. Loses connection constantly even with new batteries. After twenty years of computer mac useage, i feel the new direction apple is going is just plain terrible.
Summary: Horrible mouse, and an expensive one at that. Whenever I use this mouse I feel like I'm dragging a heavy rock through my desk. Precision and tracking are really bad, I adjusted to the maximum speed and I still feel like I'm going on slow motion. My hand feels uncomfortable just after a few minutes of use, and even the additional gestures are much slower compared with the track pad. So really no redeeming qualities.
Most frustrating computer product I've owned in 30 years

Summary: 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.
Summary: I HAVE A MAGIC MOUSE AND KEYBOARD THAT APPEARS TO NEED A MAGICIAN TO MAKE IT WORK. KEYBOARD WORKS MORE THAN THE MOUSE. MOUSE WORKS VERY LITTLE. I HAD TO GO BACK TO MY WIRED KEYBOARD AND MOUSE ON MY NEW iMAC WITH GREAT 27" SCREEN.
Summary: I love the look and feel of the Apple Magic Mouse, and the multi-touch gestures are great. But I ended up purchasing an Apple Trackpad and Logitech mouse as I found the Magic Mouse unusable. I am a CAD operator and this mouse just isn't suitable for this work. I also find it awkward for regular MAC use. I'm not sure exactly what it is, but the tracking just isn't right.
It is sad that a logitech smokes any mouse made by apple

Summary: I have not used an apple's mouse for a long time. #1 Lack of controls. #2 The most uncomfortable shape for the human hand and idiotic design. This product is serious waste of plastic. Apple, why is it so hard for you guys to come up with a user friendly and comfortable mouse?
