    Avoid this mouse

    I've been a Mac user for years - but i've been working on a PC for business the past 10. I recently went back to grad school and opted for a MacBook Pro and Magic Mouse 2. Even at times the computer seems clunky and slow - the worse complaint is this Magic Mouse!! It takes a rocket scientist to get it open to replace batteries (there are a lot of websites that provide instructions, that ought to tell you something) but it is always a chore to get the back open. To add injury to insult, this mouse eats batteries like crazy!!! I am an average user as far as time goes, but I'm replacing batteries every two weeks. No kidding!!!

    It has a mind of its own too. It struggles to wake up and goes dormant on and off all the time. Junk. What happened to Apple quality?

    The worst!

    Absolutely the most annoying thing ever. You have to be very careful about where you click. More times than not it gives you a right click (menus, etc) instead of a left. You have to be on the extreme left to get a left click. If you have your finger resting on top and move the mouse sideways in any way, it will change the screen, navigate you away from the app your working on, or select multiple excel columns, etc. I can't even tell you the number of times in a day I want to throw this thing against the wall.

    Haters going to hate.

    I've seen a lot of negative reviews about the magic mouse 2 and I have to disagree. This mouse is simple, the gestures feature is amazing, and the design is super sexy. I thought I would regret spending the extra cash on this mouse and I'm sure glad I did. The main criticism I see echoed over and over is that you can't use the mouse while it's charging. And if you have an iMac or other device that doesn't have a built in trackpad I can see how that is annoying, but the mouse charges quickly and it's easy enough to check the battery level in the System Preferences. So if you're mouse dies, plug her in and go get some fresh air when you return she should have enough juice to finish the day. You probably deserved a break anyhow.

    Ouch

    Can anyone post a link to another mouse that has the charging port ON THE BOTTOM? It is such an innovative design I just have to see where they stole the concept from.

    Simply put the best mouse out there

    I always wondered how a mouse could work without a second click or even a wheel, but Apple's design has solved it in such a brilliant way. Everytime I touch my mouse I feel grateful for the quality and value that apple puts into every product.

    If you are interested in a mouse instead of a trackpad (which I prefer) go for this one, and you won't regret it. The quality (metal and crystal) is just unbeatable. Other cheap plastic mouses are horrible.

    P.S. It works even in the most irregular surfaces, doesn't have to be specifically on a flat surface with perfect reflection material. It just works.

    Not so great

    This mouse is frustrating to use. Accidentally brush a finger against the top and it goes scrolling all over the place. It depends on the program being used as to what will happen. Sometimes it is not as big an issue as it is other times. As an example, in Access via Parallels Desktop for Mac, accidentally swipe to the right and you end up with a blank window. And that’s not one of the biggest problems with this. Then at times when you want it scroll, it doesn’t…or at least not very well. Then there is the charging port located on the bottom of the mouse. I will say the mouse will hold a charge quite a long time. I’ve had this one that came with the iMac for a couple of months and have only charged it once. But I don’t use it every day because of the above issues. Will it continue to hold a charge as it gets older, who knows. If it doesn’t, that makes the charging port on the bottom even more of an issue. If I only used Mail and Safari, I might be able to live with it. Oh yea, and no middle mouse button.

    Never

    You guys over at apple just cant get it right can you? Look. I love the tracking that an apple mouse offers...its smooth and percise when working with the pen tool or any other adobe product. Now the bad. This goes for EVERY MOUSE APPLE HAS EVER CREATED. The scroll doesnt work...its that simple. There is no scroll. My ring finger brushes the side of the mouse when i work. so ill be there working then all of a sudden my page scrolls up or down lightning fast. On the previous mouse, the one with the little ball for scrolling, well lets just say thats the one im using now and that ball shouldnt even be there. It broke like 50 times no matter how many times i try to clean it. heres an idea apple. Create a mouse that just has a wheel for scrolling. stop trying to be cute. its not in the best interest for the design... besides.. for a design to be a good one..looks dont matter first.. functionality does. stop worrying about the form over the functionality. JUST ONCE!!!

    Bad design. Embarrassment of an Apple product.

    Charging port is on the bottom of the mouse. Makes it impossible to use while charging. That alone is enough to give a 1 star review. Apple botched this one.

    Great Mouse Upgrade

    The ONLY disappointment is that I can't use it with OS 10.10 - which is an issue because my IT department has not upgraded us to 10.11 yet.
    Otherwise, this mouse is still a great design that moves naturally across my desk.
    I'm surprised by the number of reviews that complain about the charging port being on the bottom, thus preventing them from using the mouse while charging. Can anyone post a link to a rechargeable mouse that CAN be used while charging? I can't recall ever having seen such a device. The complainers should just shut the heck up and return the mouse if they hate it so much, but I'm keeping mine!

    Apple's worst designed item!

    Cant charge the item when being used - thoughtless. And the charging point is on the underside of the mouse - huh. Would given the item zero stars, but it's not possible to select a whopping 0.

    Decent mouse but overpriced

    The mouse itself is decent, although not as sensitive as I'd like on full setting. The charging bit at the bottom is pretty silly but I'm just glad the mouse doesn't need to be charged as much and that it also doesn't take too long for it to charge. No idea how Apple let that one slip through but...

    If they bumped up the sensitivity it would be a fantastic mouse.

    Piece of garbage

    Works well once one upgrades to El Capitan - but then you have an excellent mouse trying to work an OS that is seriously flawed to the point of unusable. Now going to toss the mouse in the garbage from where it was birthed and downgrade to Yosemite and go back to the old Logitech mouse I was using.

    Apple failed design on a rushed product

    How in the blue heaven would the bright engineers at Apple decided to put the charger under the mouse? so if you forget to charge your mouse regardless you are at work or home... you have to stop your productivity and wait for the darn thing to charge.

    Apple as usual is failing to impress its users by going backwards in the design department. If good old Steve would be there , He will NEVER accept this kind of childish games Apple is pulling lately.

    Do not buy this stupid little mouse, save your money and buy the previous version of this mouse or get a logitech mouse.

    Not User-Friendly; Ergonomic Nightmare

    I've used this mouse for two months now. At first, I thought I disliked it, but wanted to give it a chance. Now I can confidently say that I really, REALLY dislike it. I only gave it two stars because it works, or it would have gotten one star.

    It is a nightmare ergonomically. There are two issues. Because of the square design, the base of the thumb pushes the bottom of the mouse to the right, thus aligning the index finger with the right click area, instead of the left. This leads to the second issue. Because there is no button in the top middle, no ridge, no anything, the finger does not know instinctively when it had gone over that center line to the right click.

    I'm off to buy a non-Apple mouse!

    I love it!

    I think I have tried all of the wireless mice Apple has produced over the years. We are still using the original battery-powered Magic Mouse. It's a significant improvement over its predecessors. The Magic Mouse 2 is an improvement over that. Detractors love to malign the placement of the charging port because you can't use the mouse while it's charging. Those people apparently haven't used the mouse long enough to know it's really not a factor. I use this mouse nearly every day for at least an hour or more, and in the three months I have had it, I have charged it once. It was nearly fully charged out of the box, and it was just a few weeks ago that I needed to charge it again. You get plenty of notice before it dies. If you're worried about running it down while you're working, plug it in and take a 10-minute break. It will charge enough during that time to give you several more hours. When you're finished, plug it in for a few hours and it will be ready to go again for a couple more months.

    Design flaw!

    I really don't like the fact that I can't use the mouse while it's recharging. And it's too sensitive. Unless it's the problems with my computer that are causing that problem, too!

    Cannot click left and right simultaneously; sad for gamers.

    I'm not going to repeat any of the content of reviews here... I simply need to add that this mouse is not suitable for any games (or applications) that require you to be able to click the left and right buttons simultaneously (e.g. hold down the right button and then click the left). This rules out most First-Person games, of which there are now plenty for the Mac.
