    I really want to love this, but...

    • Written by Christy S from Nashville

    This is an amazing idea - but totally worthless if the bluetooth can't manage to stay connected. This trackpad is awesome when it works, and totally frustrating the 10 times a day that it disconnects itself from bluetooth and I have to manually reconnect, sometimes even having to turn it off and back on to reset. For the money, I'm not sure I would buy it again.

    Very Jumpy at Times

    • Written by Don D from Russell

    Upgraded my MacBook Pro and Keyboard/Mouse recent moving from 2013 MacBook Pro with MTP1 to 2019 MBP with MTP2. This trackpad regularly gets jumpy and difficult to control when my MBP is plugged in and connected to a monitor. The built-in trackpad work fine in these times the MTP2 is jumpy. This occurs even when the battery of the trackpad is full. Considering I never had ANY issues with the previous MBP and MTP1 combination, this is very disappointing.

    Love the black trackpad, it's brilliant

    • Written by Jean-Jacques H from CROWS NEST

    but, for this price, very disappointed to find a (black) regular USB-A to lightning cable in the box, instead of USB-C, for my USB-C only MacBook Pro!

    Lasted 16 months

    • Written by Alan D from Alexandria

    Got the trackpad 2 to replace a faulty TP 1 which came with my 2011 imac. Original one lasted 7 years, new one 16 months. I loved the design and operation, but last week it just died, refused to charge, and is now a pretty brick. Apple online tech was courteous & knowledegable. He took over my screen, poked around, and said it was Most Sincerely Dead. There's no way to tell if the unit is charging unless you're in Trackpad Preferences, but if its not charged or charging, its not "discoverable" and won't show up in Preferences! Bit of a Catch-22 design flaw there-put a little green light somewhere on the unit! Guess I'm back to Magic Mouse, which isn't nearly as graceful a product, but at least its working. In all, the internal battery idea is wonderful, but oughta last more than 4 months longer than the warranty period - or Apple should offer a Trackpad Applecare extension.

    Great mouse replacement but not really wireless

    • Written by Dinah Simone B from Oakland

    This trackpad is a great and ergonomic replacement for a mouse. It's a good size, too — plenty of space to work with on the trackpad, but it doesn't take up too much space on my desk. I've been using it for about three months.

    Unfortunately, the bluetooth connection has gotten very spotty in the last month or so (even with literally nothing but 18 inches of air between the trackpad and the computer). Typically, when my 2018 iMac wakes from sleep, the Apple bluetooth keyboard connects but this trackpad does not — despite being charged and switched on. The bluetooth utility searches and searches, eventually finds the trackpad, but fails to connect for reasons that are not clear. Sometimes, it drops the bluetooth connection to the keyboard, but that is less frequent and it seems to pick that up again fairly quickly. I think this problem is linked to a software update, so hopefully Apple will fix it in the future.

    Most of the time, I have to plug in the trackpad to use it at all, which is disappointing for a product that is supposed to be wireless. On balance, then, I'd say it's way overpriced for a wired device. Don't buy it until Apple fixes its bluetooth connectivity problems.
