    Bring back the wired Mighty Mouse!

    I could not be more frustrated with an apple device as the Magic Mouse (both generations). Working mostly on a macbook pro, I need a reliable bullet-proof mouse. This is not it. The bluetooth drops out CONSTANTLY.
    Luckily, I've found a retailer who still stocks the old wired Mighty Mouse. I've ordered it today. No more messing about with unnecessary bluetooth rubbish.

    Great Mouse

    Still the best mouse I ever have.

    Maybe I'm not an extensive user, but I only need to charge it once every 1 or 2 months.

    Magic mouse 2 introduces friction to workflow.

    Hey Apple... did you forget: "the most powerful computer is the one that lets you get your work done" - you invented that phrase.
    The magic mouse 2 fails on that promise. I don't need to explain - anyone using it will see the problem. And it is a problem. I now need to have a backup mouse - just for when Mouse #1 needs feeding.
    Brilliant eh? No, not brilliant. Dumb. This is not Jobs. This is not Apple. This is just dumb.
    Come on Apple, show your stuff. Produce a design that lets your users get their work done.
    You can do it. Just believe in yourself. :)

    Works well and looks like an Apple product

    I think the Magic Mouse 2 suits me well. It blend in well together with my MacBook Pro.

    I could easily have found me a cheaper "PC" style mouse that would have worked just as well, but not as good looking.

    Wonderful Innovation

    I am not sure why there are so many that use the same exact words, "Worst Design Ever", but it seems that the main redesign is to move from disposable batteries to rechargeable. Thank goodness for that, less batteries in the landfill. The Mouse worked great right out of the box and there does not seem to be any erratic movements as some describe. I assume it would be due to static electricity, but as I live in an area that is frequently 26% Rh, I have not had problems. Bravo, Apple!

    Looks good, but is totally unusable in serious work

    To my experience,
    - too sharp upper edges: uncomfortable to hold (what is this s*t with sharp edges of accessories anyways)
    - Mouse is laggy: cursor following EXTREMELY unreliably w/ macbook pro
    (no fix for this so far, but there are lots of suggestions which doesn't really work)
    - Can't recharge it while using
    - in summary, cheap $10 wired mouse does it's job far better than this piece of junk

    Right out of the box this mouse felt nice, minimalistic, and worked immediately. Very satisfied.

    Prove to me your are good... I need to get the trust back

    I just hope that this Magic Mouse 2 last longer than my previous one....
    After only 18 months my first MM2 stopped working....
    After 2 long calls to Apple support I was .... told buy a new one !!!

    To say I am disappointed ..... well I am
    Now I have an old dinosaur one attached to my computer at my work place and it is still going after 5 years !

    Having said that the new one so far is working fine... I've only had it a week... I just don't quite have that trust back....

    Magic mouse doesn't click because it thinks you're scrolling

    The sloped front of the mouse causes your finger to slide down when you try to click. The sliding finger registers as scrolling, which causes the click not to function properly. The scroll is so sensitive, that I haven't been able to click perfectly without scrolling even though I've been using this mouse for months. I could turn off scrolling, but then what would be the point of this mouse?

    Without out a doubt, the worst item Apple has ever produced.

    Stay away from this lame piece of plastic as best as you can. It's an unbearable burden to try to work this accessory, even with third party apps to try to limit the undesirable movement of your content across the screen, it will definitely drive you crazy from the beginning. There's some situations even worse than others, like trying to use any of Adobe's applications. MS Office and Google Docs can be almost as big of a headache. It will almost never do what you intend. On the contrary, whenever you touch the surface (whether you are trying to select some text or scroll down any kind of document) the whole screen will move erratically making it extremely difficult for you to achieve anything. Bottom line: whatever you do NEVER get one of these, not even for free.

    5 steps back

    Like many other have stated, you can't charge it and use it at the same time. My original Mighty Mouse works perfectly on my granite counters at home, as does any $12 Logitech mouse, and even a generic mouse I bought at a museum with a beetle inside it. But this mouse fails to track on granite and other surfaces. It is also too thin to be ergonomic; it doesn't follow the curve of a relaxed hand.

    Worst design!!!

    Who was the genious that thought about making the charging port at the bottom?
    Now you cannot work while its charging! Are you serious Apple?
    Still no redesign since 2015???

    Lovely feel, but may not be good for serious power users

    I love the mouse.
    Feels great. Being able to perform gestures like "swipe" and "scroll" are entertaining.

    However, since you cant escape having your hand on the mouse to move it, it is easy to for the mouse to think you are making a gesture when you are not.
    This might annoy some users.

    The charge lasts for ever. admittedly, i use my iMac for short periods, but the charge lasts for months!!! That really is a big plus.

    Worst Apple product by far

    Wondering when they'll fix this Bluetooth connection. Seriously!

    I hate this mouse.

    I love most Apple products, but this one is awful. I won't even spend time talking about the most obvious problem and design flaw (charging port on backside of mouse). My #1 complaint is there is no way to completely eliminate scrolling and gestures. Every window I interact with (browser window, Excel table, Photoshop layers, etc) moves and shakes or selects the wrong line item because of the sensitivity and unwanted scrolling. I've tried multiple times to disable scrolling and gestures via System Preferences but no luck. After 2 or 3 maddening months of use, I went out and bought a used Apple wired mouse. Works perfect. I just have to deal with the stupid cord.

    Full Disclosure: I have accessibility issues. I don't have full range of motion for hand/fingers and I'm using the mouse as a single-click device only.

    Disappointed in the design and battery life.

    I want to love the magic mouse, but there are two things that make me hate it:

    1. I cannot believe that the Apple designeres made a mouse that cannot charge its battery while its being used. The charger port is directly underneath the mouse, and the cord sticks straight out of the bottom so that you can't charge it while you're using it. I was completely baffled when I realized this. Apple! You're better than this!

    2. What makes #1 complaint all the MORE annoying is that once the battery gets down to 70% or lower, the mouse stops functioning well. You can try to keep using it, but it will slow down significantly. It takes roughly 80 hours of use to get down to 70%, which is great, but I'm just shocked at the difference when the battery is still well above 50%. Maybe it's just a defective mouse that I'm using? I don't know.

    3. I am starting to get carpal tunnel symptoms in my mouse hand because my middle, ring, and pinky fingers have to hover above the mouse to avoid an accidental right-click. If there's a way to adjust the settings so that I don't have to hold my hand in unnatural way, I haven't found it yet.

    Ugh...worst mouse ever!

    I hate using this thing, it is too flat. If I use it for any length of time my hand will cramp. Aesthetically, it's great; functionality, not so good.

    Best Mouse I've Ever Owned

    I've seen the comments about the location of the recharge port, so there's no point parroting the same thing. I will say one thing though: it's not enough to justify a 1 star review, in my opinion. It is after all a wireless mouse. I can easily find time to recharge the mouse. Even a couple of hours of letting the computer sleep, while I do something else, can fully charge the mouse and the charge lasts for a long time. Okay, with that out of the way, I really enjoy using this mouse. I will fully admit to being one of those people who think both the keyboard and the mouse were overpriced, so I decided to get a $40 third party keyboard and mouse combo, last year for my Mac Mini. That was a mistake. A year later, I caved in and bought this as well as the Magic Keyboard. The gestures make me feel like I haven’t been using my mac to the fullest. Initially found the mouse tracking to be on the slow side, but I was able to easily fix this by changing the speed of the tracking in System Preferences. Overall, it is very responsive, useful gestures, no stuttering, no dropping items in places I didn't mean to drop it in, and no need to constantly replace batteries (in case you wonder, it was something I had to do for the previous third party mouse I owned and that did very little to remedy the issues it gave me). Essentially, you get what you paid for.
