    Long time mouse user never going back

    I bought this after forgetting my mouse and didn't want to have 2 of the same. At first it was sluggish to get used to, and after a weekend of using a track pad I'll never go back to a mouse with a Mac. It's replaced my mouse for my docking station and it packs nicely when I travel. Battery life is amazing.

    The worst Apple product ever - I'd give it no stars if I could

    Not only is it awkward to use but it suddenly shuts down or switches off for no apparent reason. Worse still the cursor will suddenly stick to a document or application for some weird reason. Then it'll go flying all over the place. The only way to stop it is to bang the trackpad down on the desk a few times and then switch it on and off.

    This happened all the time but yesterday when I was finishing a major project for a client. Nearly missed the deadline and lost the account.

    Truly appalling. Do not buy it.

    Much better than the mouse!

    Just brought my iMac 27inch 5K the other week but didn't go with the trackpad option initially instead thinking the mouse would be sufficient. However since I am so used to using the force touch track pad on my Mac Book Pro I found the mouse very hard to get used to, so I went to the Apple store and got the Magic track pad and it is great! Much bigger and easier to glide your fingers on then the one on my Mac Book Pro and so much better than the magic mouse especially when using swipe gestures. Definitely has enhanced the overall user experience on my iMac.

    It is indeed MAGIC!

    An absolutely incredible product. I don't know how Apple have done it, but the Magic Trackpad 2 and it's big brother, the wireless keyboard, connects effortlessly to my iMac nearly 20% of the time! That's right, I only need to restart my iMac 8 times out of ten to get the two Apple designed products to connect to the Apple designed computer. It's that kind of experience that makes makes Apple stand out in a world of peripherals that don't work as advertised. Would definitely buy again.

    Much better than the old trackpad

    I bought this for my new office so that I'll still have something at my home office when I'm there. I have always had issues with my trackpad sliding around when I tried to do any dragging type movements. I have to get out my magic mouse to do these kinds of actions. This new trackpad sticks to my desk right where it was placed. I haven't had any issues with my dragging and dropping or anything of the sort. I may be buying a second magic trackpad 2 to replace my home trackpad. The larger surface and force touch is nice too.

    Good quality upgrade

    The charging function alone made this a substantial upgrade to the previous magic trackpad. But it is well built and looks good too.

    More solid than its predecessor

    This trackpad feels heavier and more solid than the previous model. Since it uses force touch now, clicking feels more comfortable and fluid. You don't really need to buy this if you have the previous model unless you hate the AA Battery. Pros: Rechargeable - goodbye AA batteries :), force touch, bigger (length wise), force touch has more features now, angle is less vs old model Cons: Expensive, no battery indicator - you have to depend on the on-screen notification.

    Great Feel But Fatal Flaw with Text Drag and Drop

    The physical feel of the product hardware is outstanding. The look, the same. The ability to charge it with your lightening cable, heavenly.

    The way it fouls up drag and drop, fatal flaw. The ability to double click a word in text and then drag it elsewhere is frequently broken depending upon the apps, and especially in Xcode. The ability to triple click a line of text and then drag and drop it is similarly flawed and broken in many apps. This is contrasted to the original MagicPad which works flawlessly in the same situations along with the current mouse as well as any other prior mouse.

    If the new MacBook's have the same trackpad, then I will be avoiding them and keeping my 2013 MPB Retina for quite a while... at least until they fix this. And unfortunately Apple is famous for only fixing things when pressed by reporting them as a security flaw.

    I prefer a trackpad but I am really glad I have the mouse now. As for the MagicMouse, that's a keeper.

    It just works!

    I bought this with my iMac 21.5 4K and am continuously impressed with how well it works for me. Totally intuitive and ultra smooth. As close to the same look/feel of using an iPhone or iPad in terms of interaction with the computer. I've found a few programs that don't work well with the trackpad -- Photoshop and Google Earth are two -- but most programs and webpages work just fine. For me, it is so easy and natural that it is my default device and I rarely use a mouse anymore. It just works.

    add trackpad funtionality for ipad pro

    This is a great product. Very useful for the Macbook pro. However, it would be great if you could pair it with ipad pro.

    Having used a Magic Trackpad since 2010, I really do appreciate the Force Touch that i first experienced on my Apple Watch. Other differences are more subtle but overall, I do lie it more despite it's rather expensive price. The bonus for both keyboard and trackpad are the higher quality lighting cables that come with both. Recommended! I never use my original Magic Mouse. The trackpad is so much better for me.

    Overpriced and limited

    $129 and cannot even perform the same functions as the MacBook trackpad, what good is it? I am unable to drag and drop AND cannot even find any recent article in support on helping me resolve this issue. Also cannot find anything allowing me to change it in system preferences. Who ever created this did half a job.

    Highly Recommended

    After 4 months of use I can honestly say that the new Magic Trackpad 2 is amazing!
    The battery performance is great and the design and quality is great!
    The device seems to work well, despite the price being higher from the previous model i still believe that it is worth the money.
    I would highly recommend the new Apple Magic Trackpad 2.
    Please feel free to see my more in-depth review on YouTube from MP Productions!

    I was hesitant to plop down $130.00 since my current track pad worked just fine but figured I try it and return it just for the heck of it. I used it for about 10 minutes and there is no going back. The increased accuracy, size and gestures are great and there is no going back. Mine installed easily and I find the glass surface and new lower profile less fatiguing on my hand. Make sure you go to the Apple website and look up the different/new gestures. The 3 finger D&D is fantastic.

    preferences problems

    both the Magic Trackpad 2 and Mouse give problems installing. Both of them will connect, but there is no way of getting to the Settings of either one of them. For both the preferences will give: No Mouse Found, No Trackpad Found, while both are working. I really want the preference access, as many of the gestures are not working with neither one of them

    It worked well for a few days but I then found the cursor was left behind my finger movement and I constantly had to correct it. I've now reverted to the mouse. It was fully charged. An expensive trial..

    It works great, but beware the top surface cracks easily. My empty coffee mug tipped over onto the Magic Trackpad 2 and shattered the surface. I couldn't believe that's all it took. Made me wish I still had the original trackpad which was much more rugged.

    I love this mouse

    Reviews are based on everyone's personal experience with new devices and technologies. If they have a bad or good experience, they associate that with the particular product. But as I am writing to you on this Magic Trackpad, I love this trackpad. I was surprised just how small it was, yet a specious flat surface for mouse control and versatility . Having a macbook pro complicates the mouse nicely. Its light and the typing seed is quite fast. Getting used to another keyboard, mouse, or even computer takes some time. But if you hang in there, all 60 seconds, your experience will be positive. However, I fully understand different strokes for different folks. But personal experience has told me that I immediately love this tracking device and confirms my faith in Apple, after reading some of the not-so-positive reviews. Thank you and good night. FYI, I literally posted the same review for the magic keyboard review as well.

    Great TrackPad - Drag & Drop Issue Resolved

    I find no problems with this new generation of TrackPad. Smooth scrolling, no problems with BT connections and overall great performance. Many have complained about the Drag & Drop (D&D) feature gone missing. Rather than rant about how awful this product is and leave a low rating I decided to call Apple support. What a novel idea!

    Sarcasm aside... for some reason Apple decided to place the activation for the D&D feature in Preferences > TrackPad > Accessibility. Go Figure??? Bad move Apple.

    Now before you run to your Apple Computer to look for the feature....know that it will not be visible until after the TrackPad 2 has been paired. So, if you're a person that has to see-it-to-believe-it I suggest you go to your nearest Apple Store (or 3rd party retailer) and check it out on a demo model.

    Assuming you were otherwise satisfied with the TrackPad 2...you now have no reason not to take the $129 plunge. Enjoy!
