Advantages: Quality comfortable mouse, comes with warranty.
Disadvantages: Very expensive for what it is.
The apple Magic mouse comes in its a own protective box when you buy it new, you get a thick plastic casing to keep it clean and so far so good, it hasnt chipped when dropped, the cover doesn't slide off to easily, and its very easy to clean. On to the mouse itself, it is piano white and has a very glossy feel to it, you can get good grip all over the mouse and there are no small grooves to bet drit stuck in, so it is very easy to clean too.
Responsiveness is perfect, even on rough surfaces like wood the mouse works hreat and doesn't just wander around the screen aimlessly when its having trouble with tracking movement. No lag issues to report and despite being a wireless mouse it hasn't had bluetooth connection problems all the time. Connection is easy and simple, just activate bluetooth on your device, switch the mouse on at a switch underneath, and you're done.
Mechanically this device has been sound, nothing gone wring with it in the past 6 months and i have never needed the warranty. No buzzing noise coming from the mouse, and batteries need replacing roughly every month and a half. range is a good several meteres but depends on height, objects in front of the mouse and how much battery life you have left.
Comfort is excellent, my hand wraps around the mouse and because its chunky, i dont get strains or muscle ache when using it for hours at a time. The mouse is a little heavier than most wireless mice but thats ok because it gives that solid build wuality feel, its built to last and i suppose that's where your money is going, all these features and quality come at a price...
The problem then, is the price. £31 i paid and that was considered cheap and even included postage, these cost much more from official vendors such as Amazon and the Apple store itself. you get a 1 year standard apple warranty which covers a lot, all mechanical faults and what not. If you need this mouse then it comes at a price, apple know you will need it so the price is excessively high.
Summary: A great mouse but overpriced, which looses a star
