    Even Better

    I owned the original Magic Mouse for several years and was finally wore it out recently. I've had the MM2 for about 6 weeks now. I use a mouse 30-50 hours per week depending on my travel schedule, meetings etc. I liked the original mouse shape, size, shortcut features, and feel in the hand. I've had right hand pain off & on over the years due to overuse and have tried many different mice - the Magic Mouse seems to work best for me. Even better than the ergonomic mice I've tried.

    Differences with the new mouse:

    1. It feels more solid for some reason.
    2. No fiddling with batteries or the cover plate. Once piece.
    3. Easy to pair and setup. Just plug it it.
    4. Excellent battery life. After the initial charge I went over 4 weeks on a charge including a Christmas break. Two weeks on the current charge and at 65%.
    5. It seems more responsive for movements and the shortcuts. It really shines with apps than need precision like OmniGraffle.

    I use to really like the MM1, but I really love the MM2. Highly recommended.

    Love or hate

    I really believe Apple should admit to the fact that they just can't make a decent mouse. My major problem with this mouse is ergonomics. It just doesn't fit my hand.

    When I bought my new iMac I had a choice the MM2 or the wired mouse. I bought this one because I new it wouldn't have dirt issues (as the wired version does).

    My major gripe as I said are ergonomics. The mouse gives me wrist pain and that is a "no-no" for an item like this. I also find it a bit heavy but you can say that about all bluetooth mice.

    Also it is not as accurate as wired mice and that includes Apple's wired mouse as well (when it worked).

    Did it exceed my expectations? No it met my expectations. It looks great but the functionality leaves a lot to be desired. That is, this mouse is an example of form over function.

    Magic Mouse 2 not Impressing

    I have been an apple fanatic for nearly 10 yrs now. Upgraded my iMac to the latest iMac with retina display. It came with the MM2. It connected and functioned smoothly until the battery run out right in the middle of a project work. Then when I came to charge it I realised the charging port is on the base of the mouse so of course can't use it while on charge.

    Didn't charge when the iMac was shut down over night. That puts me off completely and have returned to my MM1 and the older keyboard which I can leave charging using the Mobee Magic Feet and never worry about been stopped in my tracks in the middle of a project work.

    To me this is an example of a very good idea but poorly thought through.

    Buy it and try it, ignore the negative review.

    Before you read anyone's review, you should just buy it and try it for yourself. Apple has a great return policy.

    Its a great mouse and does the job well. The battery is impressive and can easily last a month with regular use, so that solves the charging pot design issue because you barely have to charge it. In term of the speed, you can configure it under the setting.

    Dont buy it to hate it, like everything in life, your attitude towards something can make you bias.

    Amazing

    It's a great mouse compared to Magic Mouse 1. It's lighter and last longer. More accurate and lower lag. It just feels right.
    Nothing changed much in terms of appearance, but it's a totally different mouse.

    Terrible mouse!

    The central function of a mouse should be that it is ergonomically designed to function flawlessly. Unfortunately the mighty mouse 2 is far from that. It feels awkward, small and is a nuisance to use. As much as I admire the aesthetic design coupled by superior functionality of most Apple products, they missed the point on this mouse. I find it hard to comprehend how it even made it to market. Did this mouse not get tested for functionality?

    Who are these people?

    Is someone paying irrational, cantankerous antagonists to write one-star reviews? Anything they don't love is automatically "the worst thing ever!" All of these extremely low reviews are incredible... as in "not even remotely credible."

    This mouse looks and feels like the last one - only a little lighter. Ergonomics, weight, appearance, functionality... all great things, and all much better than your average third-party product. The mouse plugs in to charge... and this is somehow horrible? Upside-down is a bit weird and you don't use it while it is charging. How does that make this a one-star product? Don't you ever sleep? Can't you remember to plug your mouse in overnight once a month? This is way better than having to change the batteries every two weeks. Do you gripe about your phone because you have to put it down once in a while to charge it? So it doesn't work with some of the older system software? Well in most cases, neither should you. How does that make this product abysmal? Your wrist hurts? That is not the mouse's fault. Operator error does not make a product atrocious any more than a drunk driver makes a a particular brand of car a hazard to drive.

    This mouse is a great product. An improvement over the already-good last version. Would I prefer a third party mouse over this one? No thanks. I'll give my five stars right here without apology.

    Utterly terrible, 0 stars.

    Like so many of the reviews here, I can't get over how bad every single aspect of this mouse is. If it weren't for it literally being 'free' as the mouse I use at work then I'd be asking for a refund.

    - Cost? Expensive
    - Functionality? Can't use it while it charges - and this is so apparent that it's designed into the mouse.
    - Design? Ergonomically poor.
    - Features? Scroll, gestures, etc work with Yosemite.

    The last point is the kicker. This makes every single other mouse ever made 'as good' or even better than it. All I can do is click.

    Useless, pathetic, embarrassing for Apple. There's aren't enough words to sum it up.

    Handy and neat!

    I recently owned the first Magic Mouse and returned it to BestBuy literally 1 day before Apple released this Magic Mouse 2.

    When I had the first Magic Mouse, having batteries for it wasn't really a con since the battery lasted a pretty long time. But now that I have the Magic Mouse 2, I am SO glad it has a built in rechargeable battery. And an added on bonus about this Magic Mouse 2 is that I can use my iPhone's lightning connector to charge up the mouse, or use the lighting connector provided in the box. Apple says the charge on this mouse is suppose to last for about a month or more, and so far I can say that it's living up to Apple's words.

    As far as design goes, I love it! This mouse's sleek design makes it look really good! I am a male and I have medium sized hands, and I will say that it did take me a while to get used to holding this mouse since it doesn't fit in the curve of your hand like most other mouses do. The gestures that you can do with this mouse are super cool and it feels very natural, especially if you are fond of the Macbook's Trackpad or the Wireless Trackpad.

    The only downside I had with this mouse (1st and 2nd version) was the price...and the bluetooth connection issues. Every now and then my mouse tends to not want to connect to my Macbook Pro's bluetooth. But it could be an issue with the Mac's bluetooth or the Magic Mouse...or maybe the Magic Mouse has a sleep mode that activates after so long that I don't know about. Who knows?

    Other than that, this is a very nice accessory to have with your Mac. I already had it planned in my mind to return it back to BestBuy before my 14-day return trial is up, but now I've decided to keep it. I am very glad I bought this Magic Mouse.

    Tiny Tiny Tine

    Can this mouse be any smaller? At least with the other mouses at office depot or office max there's a bigger mouse to hold onto so it doesn't feel like a Tic-Tac box. Apple you disappointed me with the tiny mouse. Can't wait to see if you come out next year with the mouse the size of a wafer cookie.

    Lithium-Ion batteries dont belong in low power devices

    I loved the original magic mouse. The ergonomics weren't very good but I used it as a reminder to step away from the computer. This mouse is no better. Instead of going at my leisure, I need to walk away in order to charge the mouse upside down.

    I have long understood the value of quality Eneloop batteries. I have a large collection for my camera flashes, flashlights, and older electronics. Lithium-ion batteries became a good choice for frequent use, high drain devices like laptops and phones. The other benefit was the extra freedom it gave industrial designers to make the batteries fit in noncylindrical shapes. - The catch? Physics. An Eneloop battery will last. I'm not talking about Duracell's or what you find at the drug store. Any battery that can be bought in bulk is mediocre at best.
    Eneloop batteries are designed specifically to hold a charge when not in use, and maintain sustainable output even when the charge is low. Eneloop batteries can be charged thousands of times while still maintaining full capacity. In comparison, lithium batteries loose a significant amount of their charge capacity after just a few hundred charges. An example is when a smartphone will no longer hold a charge.

    Good enough

    I had the first magic mouse long long time ago and just few days ago I bought the Magic Mouse 2 because there's no other mouse out there that is a perfect partner for a Mac.

    PROS:
    - It is a perfect love affair for Macs OS X - not all os x versions though as I have heard. The ones I'm using is the latest os x and it's perfect.
    - gestures and swipes really works well. Faster than using a conventional mouse in a mac where you have to keep looking for the horizontal scroll bars.

    CONS:
    - this mouse is quite expensive
    - they should have made a mouse that you can use while charging. How hard can it be if Apple have many well paid and brilliant engineers? charging is quick but what if you need the mouse at the moment while charging. Oh well good ol Steve Jobs would say to keep track of the battery and charge before you use it lol
    - Ergonomics of Mighty Mouse is not very good for people with large hands. I have small hand and it doesn't bother me much. I do have friends with large hands said it's awkward to use.


    I keep calling it Mighty Mouse instead of Magic Mouse LOL

    Don't buy it

    Worst mouse I ever used, so un-precise, ergonomics is not good, my hand is hurting me. Is over priced too. Is not work mouse that is for sure. Is making me less productive.

    Excellent

    My old magic mouse is still going but the battery cover has broken so I bought a "2" to replace it. Excellent mouse. Lighter and smoother than the original. Highly recommended.

    Pretty lame

    1) SO uncomfortable to use; not ergonomic whatsoever
    2) charges in an awkward position so you can't use it while its charging
    3) doesn't work with Yosemite or earlier
    4) expensive


    I wanted a wireless mouse and bought this without researching. What a mistake. Am going to try to return if its not too late. Do your research, the reviews here are not bogus. If the majority of people say a product isn't great, its not great. Of course it functions as a mouse, but at this price point I want better. I hope Apple reads these reviews and takes some of the feedback to heart.

    TAKE NOTE: It only works on El Capitan

    I've recently bought a new Magic Mouse 2 as my Magic Mouse 1 kept disconnecting from my Mac for no apparent reason. Unfortunately I assumed that as I had a reasonably up to date OS (Yosemite) that it would work. I was wrong... I'll admit it was my fault though; I didn't check the specs to make sure that an Apple accessory would work with a recent (released in 2014) Apple OS running on Apple hardware. Apart from the fact that my Apple mouse won't work on my Apple Mac running Apple OS X 10.10 I think the mouse is great so gets 4 stars.

    Unstable and Uncomfortable - But It Looks Great!

    What is magic about this mouse? A purchase that I regret. I was keen to have my first ever Apple mouse. Loving my MacBook and iPhone I had high expectations. However, after using it for some time, I conclude that the mouse feels unstable, almost wobbly at times. The Apple mouse does not fill the palm of my hand properly meaning i have less control. Also, somehow my left clicks come out as right clicks at times. My reference point was a competitive mouse that I have used for years.

    On the bright side, I think the mouse really looks great.

    Absolutely no problems with MM2

    I am using MM2 on an early 2015 MacBook Pro with retina running El Capitan.

    The mouse is frankly excellent.

    Worked first time when paired via blue tooth and hasn't dropped any signal or felt in time lag between the mouse and the cursor.

    Indeed the mouse works just fine when tested 3 meters away from my Mac.

    In short, I have noted a number of negative comments regarding this device performance it would seem on any Mac not produced in 2014 or above and that being the case that does need address. But if your Mac falls into the category of 2014 or later you should be just fine with this product.
