    BAD REVIEWS ARE EITHER PLANTS OR ???

    • Written by Brian C from Granville

    I've been using a track pad since they were introduced. If anything this may be a tad bit better. But hard to say as I discern very little difference. So I simply don't get some of the hysterical rants I read. Only reason I have one is I have neck problems and my doc recommended elevating my screen. Trackpad works just fine.

    Works Fine

    • Written by Joshua P from Malibu

    Bought Trackpad a month ago. Charged it once - it's still at 80%. I use it with my iMac - it was incredibly easy to connect and has worked perfectly. It's a really good product - for the life of me, I don't see any credibility in the complaints of other reviews. I very rarely write product reviews, but in this case I'm happy to support a quality product.

    wonderful

    • Written by Matt K from Denver

    I work from home but on a Macbook, the positions of which can be awkward/exhausting on my dominant arm/hand. I am also well over 6' tall so I keep my laptop on a stand to get it at a height comfortable for my neck. I bought the Magic Trackpad 2 in hopes that it would allow me to seamlessly interact with my laptop while set on a stand without having to reach up for it's trackpad every time, which also causes a more serious bend in my wrist.

    The Magic Trackpad did just that. I've yet to have an issue with bluetooth, and I often have the Magic Trackpad + UE BOOM Speaker + business phone running through my laptops Bluetooth at once. Magic Trackpad connects quickly and stays connected. Couldn't give you a solid time on battery life, but I've used mine on a single charge making thousands of minute changes to CAD docs for 7+ hours straight with no issues whatsoever and it didn't even said battery low. MOST IMPORTANTLY it retains all of the functions of the laptop trackpad - clicking, right clicking, swiping, zooming, dashboard, control panel, etc.

    GREAT PRODUCT

    Love it!

    • Written by Ronald S from Albuquerque

    I have a macbook pro - half the time I work on the computer's keyboard and trackpad, half the time I put it in clamshell mode and use an external 4K monitor, wireless keyboard, and was using an older battery powered Apple wireless mouse. I really prefer using a trackpad, and this seems to work exactly like the builtin trackpad - same sensitivity, gestures, etc. I don't notice any lag, spurious clicks, or any of the problems a few others seem to claim. It did originally take me a little time to get used to the force touch and gestures with the builtin trackpad, but really this seems to work just the same. No question it's expensive and the possible need for another adapter is annoying, but as far as working well this is great!

    Great in every way

    • Written by Jacquie B from Houston

    I'm so glad that I didn't let a couple of the other reviews steer me away from this trackpad. I used the original trackpad and I liked the way it worked, but replacing batteries was a hassle. Now I have the new keyboard and trackpad 2. I love the look and feel of the trackpad 2. It works perfectly and it lasts a long time between charges. Plus charging is so easy that it barely disrupts my computer activity. Bluetooth connectivity is flawless. I highly recommend.

    FAR superior to the Magic Mouse

    • Written by Ryan R from Gainesville

    I used to have the First Generation Magic Trackpad and was considering upgrading due to the increased real estate on the Magic Trackpad 2, in addition to things like Force Touch/Haptic feedback/Silent Clicking. I'm really happy with my purchase.

    My MacBook Pro is pretty much always connected to the Big Display on my desk, and if you have a bluetooth keyboard/mouse, you can essentially transform your MacBook into an iMac Pro anytime you want.
    I have a Samsung CH711 Series Curved 32-Inch QHD Monitor in my bedroom, and a Samsung CF791 Series 34-Inch Curved Widescreen Monitor at my office.

    I'm glad I waited until the Space Grey Keyboard and Magic Mouse 2 were released....my table is black glass, and the Space Grey Colors really look elegant on it.
    I'm also a big fan of the new thunderbolt charging port (the 1st gen Trackpad used batteries).

    Just a little side-note: I purchased a Magic Mouse alongside the Trackpad just to see if I might like one over the other. Well...within about 5 seconds I realized the Trackpad is FAR superior to the Magic Mouse in pretty much every way:

    Magic Trackpad 2 vs Magic Mouse
    1. Magic Trackpad can be used while charging, but Magic Mouse cannot
    2. Magic Trackpad is REALLY spacious...lots of room for gestures VS Magic Mouse, with won't work on tables with reflective surfaces unless you have a mousepad.
    3. Trackpad 2 has haptic feedback/force touch vs. Magic Mouse doesn't
    4. GESTURES (most importantly) - gestures are EXTREMELY fluid on the Trackpad 2. Why? Because they're the SAME GESTURES you use with your MacBook! When you switch to the Magic Mouse, you'll quickly realize its limitations and awkward feel whenever you try to swipe through webpages or use any gesture besides "scrolling+clicking"

    Better than I expected. This trackpad is worth the wait!

    • Written by Jonathan M from Edmonds

    I just got this with my new space gray keyboard. I love them both. The trackpad really does offer you more in a smaller package. I personally hate having to get a mousepad depending on the surface you use it on. Moving to the trackpad seems pretty natural so far. The new matching space gray accessories go perfect with the Macbook Pro and LG 5K display. I was really starting to question Apple by not offering this... then one day finally I saw it! Awesome. The multi force touch trackpad is the future. Instead of moving your arm over a foot length surface, with a flick of your wrist you can perform 2-3x the gestures/functions of the mouse. Its great for Final Cut Pro as well. I would recommend this product to anyone 100% satisfied with it. It nearly... nearly... makes up for my $4,000 Macbook Pro that has a faulty bluetooth card, and a $1500 LG display that has image retention (ghosting) regularly. But... the new keyboard and trackpad help to make up for those irritants.

    Great Replacement for a Mouse!

    • Written by Jacob C from Sandy

    I got this trackpad to replace an old bluetooth mouse. I am hooked! Battery lasts for weeks until it needs a recharge, connectivity is quick and easy, and the gestures make working a lot easier. Its very accurate and responsive. I recommend this to anyone who wants an upgrade from a mouse for work.

    Love the Magic Trackpad!!!!

    • Written by Austin B from Gonzales

    I will never go back to a mouse. I use Apple pro apps a lot (FCPX, Motion, LPX, Compressor) and love working with the Magic Trackpad 2 with these. Speed, accuracy, and in Space Gray it simply looks great.
