      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 the 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.

      Stupid AND great

The feel of the mouse, the functionality, the build quality are all class-leading... but who in the world thought that sticking the charging port on the base of the mouse was a good idea?! And not allowing the mouse to be used whilst being charged? Seriously?! WHY? What a stupid thing to do Apple. What does someone do when they're working and their mouse runs out? Am I expected to buy two of these things??? Aargh. Here's a solution, Apple... what if the mouse could become a wired mouse whilst charging? Stick the port in the front-end of the mouse and have it work whilst charging so I don't have to use my laptops trackpad for intricate design work.

      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 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.

      Interesting toy, sadly not on par with proper mice

      The good: Beautiful design, best quality, battery lasts forever, touchable surface is different and interesting, recharges rapidly (I think the charging port i The good: Beautiful design, best quality, battery lasts forever, touchable surface is different and interesting, recharges rapidly (I think the charging port is in good location btw), can scroll sideways like on touchpad, very easy to connect, Mac's mouse settings are really beautiful for this mouse, highly configurable, comes in the most beautiful packaging, which also includes a Lightning cable. The bad: Very uncomfortable and not ergonomic. Does not glide on surfaces as good as the cheapest Logitech mice. Sensor is not precise. So, it is not well suitable for graphics work, or gaming, or music production, or basically anything at all. There are too few gestures, and they don't match touchpad's gestures. For me, the worst thing are the sharp edges of top plastic. It rubs my fingers and make them hurt. I still haven't figured out how to hold this mouse. I automatically start using MacBook's touchpad which is the best touchpad there is...which, combined with extremely bad ergonomics of the mouse, not precise movements, scratching on most surfaces and lack of decent gestures, renders this mouse totally useless. The verdict: Buy this mouse if you want your mouse to have Apple's logo, looks and quality. If you need a mouse to get the work done, look elsewhere. To be honest, this is a tough decision, since the mouse looks so nice. So, it comes down to whether you want to see and show off your mouse, or actually use it.

      good mouse

      I have been using it for a few weeks, as a replacement to my razer orochi elite. This mouse is awesome! The bluetooth works out of the box (as opposed to razer' I have been using it for a few weeks, as a replacement to my razer orochi elite. This mouse is awesome! The bluetooth works out of the box (as opposed to razer's), the gestures are awesome, battery life good, my hand doesn't feel like anything has been sacrificed ergonomics wise, the only thing that annoys me is accidentally gesturing "back" while scrolling, altho I know where and how to disable this feature, I like to be able to swipe back and forward, so just gotta re-learn where to put my finger when scrolling. Also not being able to use it while charging (I've yet to charge it tho) doesn't seem so bad - 2hrs per month of using trackpad is sorta alright.

      First Experience With A Magic Mouse

      For my first experience, I would say it'a not all that bad. The mouse has some good functionality such as the built in gestures and that 3/4 of the top is touch For my first experience, I would say it'a not all that bad. The mouse has some good functionality such as the built in gestures and that 3/4 of the top is touch enabled. Making scrolling or switching between applications simple. Pros -The Touch is easy to use, creating a few gestures that help you control your Mac interface makes it simple however there is a little bit of a learning curve to it. For people who aren't indulged in tech, this might be difficult. They have gifs in the settings menu that show how to use each gesture. -Battery Life if superb so far, 1 week of on/off use about 5-10 hours daily and it's still going. Cons -The ergonomics of this things are ridiculous. It looks like they were trying really hard to make a mouse that was different and amazing compared to all the rest. It doesn't feel good in my hand and it just looks odd with sharp edges all around the top. It's impractical to say the least. -You would think that when you turn it on, it pairs with your computer knowing that's the only device it has ever been used for? nope. Every single time I have to turn it on, I have to go into the settings and click to connect it. This is the most expensive bluetooth product I've ever bought and the only one that has no memory of device authorizations. Sometimes it does not even show up on my computer. -This is more of a personal con, but I have a MacBook Pro Space Gray and I like my products looking sleek and clean. They released the original Magic Mouse when the Mac computers were originally white. They have yet to change it. Yet they have the magic touchpad with the other finishes. It would have been nice to pay $80 for a mouse and have it match my computer. Over all, I wouldn't suggest this mouse. I got it for the ease of access and have not had the experience I have with most other apple products. It should get 1 star, but have a touch enabled mouse gets it 2. Wouldn't ever purchase again unless it were $10, what it's worth.
