    Without a shadow of a doubt the worst mouse i've ever used

    I'd give this a 0/5 if I could.

    I've used this mouse for about two months now. I was previously using a Logitech G502 on Windows, and just using the trackpad on my MacBook. I wanted a mouse for when the MacBook is docked.

    The movement scheme for this mouse is dreadful. There is absolutely no precision. This product is an example of choosing ascetics over function. I actually thought that maybe the macOS movement scheme for mice was just wrecked, then I popped my Logitech G502 and everything was fine with that mouse. The magic mouse is horribly unergonomic. It's incredibly uncomfortable to use. It has horrible weighting. It does not glide across a mouse pad or a clean surface easily. And worst of all, you can't charge it while using it because the genius who designed it put the charging port on the bottom.

    Having said that their are a few redeeming qualities, unfortunately they don't make this mouse worth a purchase. The touch features are really nice for switching desktops and the multi touch features for activating Mission Control. The natural scrolling is nice as well. If Apple could design a mouse like Logitech's chassis, ergonomics, buttons, and precision, and their own ascetics and touch features it would be a godsend.

    I wish I could return this piece of garbage. Oh well. Without a shadow of a doubt, the absolute worst Apple product I've ever purchased.

    Manic Mouse

    Battery-life? Max 4 days! I have to switch off this mouse while using a bluetooth-headphone. Because it's so hysterically connecting/disconnecting all the time! It also does all kind of things I didn't intend to do. And then there is the charging on the bottom........I guess Apple is preparing us for life with dongles. Sad product.

    Brilliant Product

    Very well designed, pairing was a breeze and works well. Only issue is the charging port at the bottom of the mouse. The mouse cannot be used while it is charging although even a quick short charge is enough to get through the day's work.

    Jumping cursor

    I've had my mouse for about a month and whilst I like the ability to charge it, the pointer constantly jumps around the screen.

    Also, then using in Adobe's InDesign, it is difficult to click inside a text box without the entire text box moving ever so slightly.

    I don't have any of these problems with my Logitech MX Master.

    Not sure if it's just mine, but I'm unimpressed.

    Excellent Mouse

    The Magic Mouse 2 is great - it's well built, works perfectly with a Mac, is incredibly comfortable and it's great to still have the gesture capabilities. The fact the Lightning port is on the bottom of the mouse doesn't hinder the product in my opinion as the battery lasts an incredible amount of time and you can check the battery life from the task bar on a Mac. Great product.

    Changed how I look at apple

    I had the original mouse and was having connectivity issues with it for a long time. After upgrading to this mouse I thought my problems would be solved. I was wrong, the mouse is still disconnecting and refuses to stay connected. I have tried everything including contacting apple support. I like the functionality of the product, but will no longer try apple products because they are unwilling to back their own products.

    Completely idiotic design

    Whoever designed this new mouse should be fired, it is completely and utterly a terrible decision to put the charging port on the underside of the mouse, you cannot use the mouse while it is charging! Anyone with half a brain would have thought to put the charging port somewhere that would still allow users to use the mouse while it is charging. This is a downgrade from the easy to use and easy to recharge battery powered Apple Magic Mouse generation 1. My advice is DO NOT BUY, buy a better wireless mouse from any other company.

    Dumb design for charging and charge doesn't last long enough

    Crazy that the charging port is on the underside of the mouse, rendering it impossible to use while charging. Has to be charged daily, so if you forget to plug it in overnight you're stuffed, means you have to leave a lead around, which surely negates the worth of wireless??

    Amazing!

    Everything about this mouse is perfect. I don't have a clue why this has less than a 4.5 star rating. I also bought the trackpad which is great, but this is the finest mouse I have ever used. Period. If you are interested in an Apple product but are concerned about the poor reviews, just buy it. I'm NEVER disappointed! I'm kicking myself for not buying the Super Drive because of the reviews.

    Ridiculous

    Once again I have to drop my work and go do something else for a while because my mouse is out of battery. This design is just ridiculous. It may look slick, but I strongly recommend getting something else.

    better than the original..

    i loved the wireless mouse and the uses of the original magic mouse. but it would go through batteries like crazy, and i hated replacing them. when the MM2 came out, i had to have it simply because it's rechargeable. it's amazing. i use my mouse at work. monday through friday, 9-5, all throughout my workday, never turning it off.. it's been two months since i last fully charged it and i'm still at 12%. that's incredible. all i'll have to do is plug it in and i'll be good to go. it also responds well. works great. no lag time.

    A great stupid device

    The mouse functionality is excellent, BUT the charging cable connection must have been designed by a drunken team. Who on earth would put the charging socket in middle of the mouse????? I am glad a have a previous battery powered Apple mouse.

    Dear Apple, please redesign and until then I suggest you remove it from the website.

    I hate this MOUSE SO MUCH!

    It tracks horribly in nearly EVERY design application I use... it is always doing the wrong function. Just try using it in Adobe's InDesign or Illustrator to position something precisely... IMPOSSIBLE! I was SUPER excited about getting a new iMac 27" at work, but I cannot use the mouse OR the keyboard (I needed 10-key and full cursor key set). I do like the way they look, but operationally this "Magic" mouse is TRAGIC & USELESS !

    Worst design of an Apple product that I've encountered

    Let me begin by saying that the original Magic Mouse was and is my all-time favorite mouse, hands down. I love it, and would easily give it 5 stars.

    But then they "upgraded" it to the Magic Mouse 2. For all the ingenious designs that Apple has come up with, how did they ever manage to think up the idea of putting the recharging port on the bottom of the mouse, which makes it completely useless while recharging! All the designers would have needed to do is look at a corded mouse: put the recharging port on the front... and voila! A rechargeable cordless mouse that can temporarily function as a corded mouse while its being recharged!

    Seriously Apple, how did no one see this problem? I am very disappointed in you guys on this one. I'm sure Steve is too.

    Fantastic & Worthwhile Upgrade on Magic Mouse 1 (battery operated wireless)

    Pair's amazingly easily. Just flat out works. Slick, precise and does what it says on the tin. Absolutely the mouse to buy if you like Apple's gestures and use them regularly.

    I upgraded from the initial magic mouse because of constant connection issues with new batteries which I added to the mouse. The connection always dropped.

    This is a MUST buy as it works completely seamlessly. Should have been lightning connected from the beginning!

    Back to my original Mighty Mouse

    While the concept of a rechargeable mouse without the hassle of batteries is good, this new mighty mouse has an Achilles heel: If the batteries run out while you are using it, you are dead in the water for at least 30 minutes while the charging cord is hooked up to the underside of the mouse. You can't use it while the charging cord is in the way and it takes about 30 minutes to get enough charge to unplug the cord.

    If you are diligent, you will recharge before your mouse's internal battery runs out. If not, plan on a long coffee break while it recharges.

    I decided to go back to my old 2009 mighty mouse (the original) and use 4 rechargeable Eneloop Pro 2550 mAh batteries in rotation; two pairs; one always charged and ready. It takes less than a minute to swap the out and they last me about 7 weeks of heavy daily use.

    Disappointed

    Most uncomfortable mouse I have ever used, physically painful to use for extended periods of time. Feels awful in the hand, and input is very impresise. No haptic distinction between left and right click, often starts scrolling when your intent is to click. Just a horrible piece of design. I would love to know if anyone at Apple actually uses this for anything other than web browsing and writing documents, there is no way this device can be used for applications that require precise mouse input like 3D design software. Its a real shame because the Magic Keyboard and Magic Trackpad are fantastic and a joy to use.

    could be better!!!!!!!!!!

    Here we go again i bet you apple make sure you buy the next version why?..... Because the charging port is under the mouse when you run out of battery you have to stop working to charge it and i bet, the next version will have the port at the back of the mouse just like the keyboard...... so you can keep working while charging. but well.....

    Stupid mouse design

    So, how am I supposed to work when the mouse gets low on power when the plug goes into the bottom of the mouse? These are not cheap products and I don't expect to have to buy two just in case I have a deadline and can't work for an hour or so! I've been a loyal, professional designer using Macintosh since 1990 and I am seriously disappointed.

    Wake up design department... form follows function!
