Nice for Productivity.

David S., Newegg
13 February 2014
  • Summary: Stuck putty on battery lid to keep batteries snug. Overall I really like it for general use and productivity. I would prefer they split the surface so that right click would be more useful.
  • Pros: Nifty gestures make sliding over virtual desktops really useful for multitasking.
  • Cons: Batteries are loose causing unstable connection. Feels odd, takes some getting used to. Gaming is cumbersome.

  • Summary: Having been using the MM for about a year, here are a few things I have noticed:
  • Pros: Very smooth scrolling. Nice heavy feel.
  • Cons: The scaling of the tracking is poor which is especially noticeable with large displays., Performance is highly susceptible to degradation from dust on the sensor., Noisy

Good mouse for Mac with too much of sensitivity

  • Summary: It you are graphic designer working with multiple screen, this will be best. If your palm is small, then it not work of buying this mouse. However you will feel uncomfortable while holding with complete finger.
  • Pros: Nice design to cover with fingers. Soft and glassy finish with too much or sensitivity. Bluetooth connectivity and laser track are perfect., Mouse preferences provided with multi controls, more over for graphical designer, this will be really useful., Wor
  • Cons: One poor thing I feel is the design of mouse or macbook the edges are sharp and narrow design, due to this you may feel pain on your small finger., Battery performance are not that long lasting, if you turn off while travel, maybe it will work for 30 days.

Argh, so amazing, yet so unusable!

Ramzi A, Apple Store
26 December 2011
  • Summary: I LOVE the multitouch features of this mouse, they're really amazing, and I love how this thing looks. But it's such a pain to use. The tracking is just horrible. There is way too much friction when you drag it around, which makes it very hard to be precise. The surface they used which makes contact with your mousepad is way too big and the material they used is not smooth enough to allow the mouse to move around smoothly.

Cool concept, but not as efficient as the trackpad!

Nicholas N, Apple Store
14 September 2011
  • Summary: Pros: look, sleek, creativity Cons: It is glossy! sometimes your fingertips stick slightly to the mouse which means you can't scroll or swipe as smooth as well as the trackpad! The trackpad is not made of glass or gloss which makes scrolling and swiping super efficient. 3/5 for the magic mouse, 5/5 for the trackpad.

Ouch

Elwood C., Newegg
22 July 2011
  • Summary: I know apple has been pushing multi-touch and gestures with their latest line of products, but if the devices hinder productivity or usability they're not an improvement. A comfortable mouse and a full size keyboard would be better suited to my needs.
  • Pros: Nifty Relatively High dpi Came free with my new iMac.
  • Cons: It's too thin! There is no way for me to comfortably grip this thing. This is not a carpal tunnel friendly device. It also is horrible for gaming. If you bump any part of the top it registers as a scroll.

Be careful of packaging!

  • Summary: I have to return mine, because when I was removing it from the packaging, the double sticky tape at the bottom was so strong it ripped off and broke the battery cover. Form over function for sure!
  • Pros: N/A
  • Cons: N/A

Okay for browsing but

Anonymous, Newegg
14 June 2011
  • Summary: maybe its just me but I prefer a stronger hold on what my mouse does. I think some areas of the mouse should have been sectioned off more strictly so that it would be more accurate
  • Pros: it looks nice and its bluetooth, no difficult setup and it has multi touch gestures
  • Cons: this is a horrible device for gaming and probably a bad device for anyone trying to do things that need the convenience of recognition, right now this device is very strange at recognizing what touch areas mean what.

Gimmicky and not that great

Andrew W., Newegg
19 May 2011
  • Summary: Linux Kernels 2.6.38-2 and later support horizontal and vertical scrolling by default.
  • Pros: Feels solid. Matches the color of my computer. Doesn't have wires.
  • Cons: Not ergonomic. Gets dirty quickly. Easy to accidentally brush and perform gestures, which can cause you to make additional rude gestures towards the mouse.

Great range but has its issues.

Robert L., Newegg
16 May 2011
  • Summary: The primary reason I bought this mouse was because the non-apple Bluetooth devices I tried didn't work at the distance I wanted (or really any distance at all). I think that this is a gimmick with little real world use. It is fun and impresses friends, but I often end up plugging in a real two button mouse when I need to get serious work done. I wish I'd taken the time to find a better solution.
  • Pros: Looks great. Amazing range! Accurate tracking on a variety of surfaces. Cute extra features using the multi-touch. Best suited to a mac as media pc?
  • Cons: Constantly picks up unintentional flicks and input when my fingers shift. Raising fingers above the mouse to avoid this often gets tiresome.
