    Everyone chill out... including you apple

    Ok this mouse is pretty much perfect.... for the right tasks. If you are doing every day stuff like word processing, web browsing, very basic editing software, it's fantastic. Even intensive video editing in adobe Premiere is pretty great with the mouse. I prefer it to a track pad and the tracking on top of the mouse itself is flawless.

    But golly gee Apple, $80? If you want people to use your stuff make it reachable. We already fork it up for the computer, maybe we could lower the price a wee bit? Just a thought.

    I don't understand the intensely harsh reviews on this or the 2.5 average stars. If you can afford it, go for it. Else there is cheaper stuff on Amazon.

    What am I clickin?

    Battery is good, connection is good, design is ok, usage almost TRASH! I don't know if its software or the hardware itself, but it seems like this mouse cannot separate right from left click. In such a way that out of my 10 right clicks, only 3 of them actually function as right click. It needs serious redesigning from scratch you apple people.

    ONCE YOU GET USED TO THE MAGIC MOUSE YOU CANNOT GO BACK TO A NORMAL MOUSE

    Was a little strange when I first used it but the touch technology becomes irreplaceable. All other mice are so restricted and one dimensional.

    The best mouse ever

    I was so in doubt to purchase this mouse because of all negative feedback, but I decided to try. I must say this is the best mouse I have ever used! It is so simple to use, and battery life is incredible! I just love all the gestures I can perform with this mouse. I really don't know what people expect a mouse to be, but this one definitely exceeded my expectations. It looks just perfect and I cannot find any flaw at all.

    good but not great

    it was exciting to see you can recharge it,but it must have been a little much to want to use it while it was recharging ,they place the plugin port on the bottom of the mouse instead of on the side or somewhere cool like the front. they figured it would mean people would just buy an extra mouse in case it hadn't charged ,or watch a movie while it charges ,unknown, this is sort of like how they made the ear buds that can be easily lost, an ok idea from a business perspective ,cause people now need to buy more to hear their music, but a plug in would be preferable. fixing one problem just to then create a new problem is not good progress, hopefully they think of the design next time by asking a group of people who aren't just agreeing with the boss.

    Design failure

    I am baffled by the redesign of the original magic mouse. I have a seven year old magic mouse that works great. Just replace the batteries every few months. With magic mouse 2 you don't have that option because when the battery is low you have to plug it in to charge for an hour, and during that time you can't use the mouse.

    Every time I have to do this I curse the engineers at Apple for an entire hour while I can't use my computer because it doesn't have a usable mouse. Maybe this was a ploy by Apple to get everyone to buy a second mouse while the other is charging?

    A staple item for any Mac user.

    The Magic Mouse 2 is a staple item for any Mac user. The superb craftsmanship is everything you come to expect from Apple. Built in navigational gestures make using macOS an absolute dream along with its great ergonomic design. Everything about the Magic Mouse 2 compliments the Mac line up brilliantly.

    Unreliable connectivity

    This particular iProduct is reliably unreliable. With constant disconnections, it fails to provide a dependable human interface with the computer. The lack of any substantive improvement or solution to the problem by Apple only exacerbates the dissatisfaction.

    Seeking alternatives.

    The best mouse from Apple yet, EXCEPT for the location of the charing plug.

    But I can live with that. Coz I only need to charge it for a few hours over night once every fifth week. Great product, feels well in the hand and easily beats any copy "mouses". Very stable BT connection too, opposite the Chinese copy products that basically are useless, this just works. 5 stars and gladly a sixth if I could.

    Exactly as expected!

    It's a Bluetooth wireless built with apple quality. Works great, pairing was instantaneous (plugin the attached lightning cable), rest of the setup was standard Magic Mouse based stuff from the Preferences panel.

    Brand new so haven't had to plugin to recharge yet as it came with over 90% power but when I get the low battery warning I'll plug it in and go to bed or leave it alone for a few minutes. The world won't end.

    Apple's most poorly-designed product

    There is no way to use the mouse and charge it at the same time. Swapping a pair of rechargeable batteries every couple months set me back about 2 minutes a year. It was not a problem that needed to be solved.

    Poor weighting and shape makes it hard to use

    Most of the time I use a Windows PC for work so I have generally use two mice the most: one Logitech wireless mouse that's a bit small but quite ergonomically shaped and a Microsoft mouse that's as cheap as they come for twenty bucks. Lately I've used the Magic Mouse quite a lot with an iMac and it offers no precision at all. It's rather heavy and is it a bit too flat to feel comfortable underneath my palm. It's weight contributes to its lack of precision as it can't be moved around smoothly like other mice can. I quite like the trackpad on my Macbook Pro, but don't feel like I need it if I have a regular mouse available...and so the top surface of the Magic Mouse 2 isn't that useful at all. I love Apple, but this mouse isn't practical and it's expensive. Honestly, I'd rather just have the iMac trackpad, or whatever it is called, or a regular Microsoft or Logitech mouse with no Apple bells and whistles.

    Nice Looking, But Horrid Stutter

    This is the prettiest of all mice, but it stutters so badly it's virtually unusable.

    It's as if it were an old-fashioned roller mouse with a dirty ball. But there IS no ball! It stutters; the curser stops moving even as I move the mouse frantically; it makes life difficult.

    I couldn't find any threads with the problem newer than 2015. So I called Apple. The technician runs me through some things and then tells me he's going to send me a new one. "YAY! Problem solved!" I say.

    The new mouse gets here, works well. For about 4 minutes. Back to the internet. I find something that says to go through all of my USB ports and remove them one at a time to see if there's a difference. Well, its the Belkin hub I got from Apple.com! So I remove it. That solved it. For 2 days.

    I try the USB route again. It's now my Time Machine that makes things better when I remove it from the port.

    Oh, come the heck on!

    So I now have the pretty mouse on my desk and I'm back to using my old wired Kensington roller ball mouse. Ugly as heck, but it absolutely works!

    I have never given one star to any product, and I absolutely hate to give one to an Apple product, but aside from "nice looking," there is nothing good. It doesn't even make a good doorstop!

    Sad

    Magic Mouse 2 is not charging

    despite several attempts, the magic mouse 2 is not charging, though it is being detected by the system.

    Love this mouse

    I wanted the bluetooth mouse since I have limited usb ports on my mini mac. When I first saw that there was no roller on the top and it wasn't split for right click left click I was concerned. Then I read the instructions and learned that you can program for right/left click in the settings. Also the material the mouse is made of recognizes when I slide my finger as though there was a roller and scrolls the page. Works like a dream. Very happy I bought it!

    Magic Mouse 2 IS AWESOME.

    I like it. Works just like the old one.

    I like that it recharges. Just remember to plug it in when you go home for the day / leave for work in the morning / go to bed at night. I have no idea why people are confused by this workflow. It's not like a daily thing, the charge lasts for weeks. I don't think it's too much to plug the thing in when you walk away once a month.

    This mouse works great, I like the touch gestures. It's an improvement over the last version with recharging and as some have noted, it is a little lighter if that's important to you.

    Poor excuse for a mouse

    I bought this mouse to go along with my Macbook pro. The mouse bearly even connects, and when it does, it won't move the curser or click on anything! Plus... why put the port for the charger on the bottom of the mouse! That's just simple bad design. Taking it back and looking for a wired mouse.

    Crazy bad mouse

    1. It accidentally scrolls everything but especially maps.
    2. Right click sometimes doesn't work.
    3. It loose connection once per week.
    4. You must use Terminal to set correct speed because it's still too slow on the maximum available setting.
    5. You can't use it while charging. (For example, you can use Apple Trackpad while charging.)
    6. It covers by scratches in few days of use.

    I changed mouse but it didn't help to resolve any of the described issues. I'm sure that nobody at Apple use it because it's almost impossible to use it.

    Poor ergonomics

    I can live with the design that the charging port is at the bottom and that you cannot use the mouse while charging. We could solve this simple problem by charging it before calling it a day. It does charge quickly, though. So even if you get caught in the middle of something, you can plug it in, get a coffee, and get enough juice to get the job done.

    As I have aged however, I cannot tolerate the very poor ergonomics in this mouse. First, it is way too flat which forces your hand to lay flat on the desk in an uncomfortable and unnatural position — our hand naturally curves when relaxed. It is very very unnatural to do the right click as it forces your index (or middle) finger to stretch to the right. This may not sound much if you have to do it once or twice a day, but after 30 years or so using a computer, it adds up. Esthetics aside, most of the comfortable mice on the market are shaped like a rock so our hand rests naturally and comfortably on it. These mice have a hump in the middle to separate your index finger from the middle finger to allow the latter to right click without you making any effort (mentally or physically). The MM-2 is no doubt pretty and smart in using the entire surface as a track pad, which eliminates moving parts to track. But it is uncomfortable to use so I ended up using a Logitech mouse instead. What a shame and there is still no replacement for this after all these days ...
