    Who are these people?

    Is someone paying irrational, cantankerous antagonists to write one-star reviews? Anything they don't love is automatically "the worst thing ever!" All of these extremely low reviews are incredible... as in "not even remotely credible."

    This mouse looks and feels like the last one - only a little lighter. Ergonomics, weight, appearance, functionality... all great things, and all much better than your average third-party product. The mouse plugs in to charge... and this is somehow horrible? Upside-down is a bit weird and you don't use it while it is charging. How does that make this a one-star product? Don't you ever sleep? Can't you remember to plug your mouse in overnight once a month? This is way better than having to change the batteries every two weeks. Do you gripe about your phone because you have to put it down once in a while to charge it? So it doesn't work with some of the older system software? Well in most cases, neither should you. How does that make this product abysmal? Your wrist hurts? That is not the mouse's fault. Operator error does not make a product atrocious any more than a drunk driver makes a a particular brand of car a hazard to drive.

    This mouse is a great product. An improvement over the already-good last version. Would I prefer a third party mouse over this one? No thanks. I'll give my five stars right here without apology.

    Utterly terrible, 0 stars.

    Like so many of the reviews here, I can't get over how bad every single aspect of this mouse is. If it weren't for it literally being 'free' as the mouse I use at work then I'd be asking for a refund.

    - Cost? Expensive
    - Functionality? Can't use it while it charges - and this is so apparent that it's designed into the mouse.
    - Design? Ergonomically poor.
    - Features? Scroll, gestures, etc work with Yosemite.

    The last point is the kicker. This makes every single other mouse ever made 'as good' or even better than it. All I can do is click.

    Useless, pathetic, embarrassing for Apple. There's aren't enough words to sum it up.

    Handy and neat!

    I recently owned the first Magic Mouse and returned it to BestBuy literally 1 day before Apple released this Magic Mouse 2.

    When I had the first Magic Mouse, having batteries for it wasn't really a con since the battery lasted a pretty long time. But now that I have the Magic Mouse 2, I am SO glad it has a built in rechargeable battery. And an added on bonus about this Magic Mouse 2 is that I can use my iPhone's lightning connector to charge up the mouse, or use the lighting connector provided in the box. Apple says the charge on this mouse is suppose to last for about a month or more, and so far I can say that it's living up to Apple's words.

    As far as design goes, I love it! This mouse's sleek design makes it look really good! I am a male and I have medium sized hands, and I will say that it did take me a while to get used to holding this mouse since it doesn't fit in the curve of your hand like most other mouses do. The gestures that you can do with this mouse are super cool and it feels very natural, especially if you are fond of the Macbook's Trackpad or the Wireless Trackpad.

    The only downside I had with this mouse (1st and 2nd version) was the price...and the bluetooth connection issues. Every now and then my mouse tends to not want to connect to my Macbook Pro's bluetooth. But it could be an issue with the Mac's bluetooth or the Magic Mouse...or maybe the Magic Mouse has a sleep mode that activates after so long that I don't know about. Who knows?

    Other than that, this is a very nice accessory to have with your Mac. I already had it planned in my mind to return it back to BestBuy before my 14-day return trial is up, but now I've decided to keep it. I am very glad I bought this Magic Mouse.

    Tiny Tiny Tine

    Can this mouse be any smaller? At least with the other mouses at office depot or office max there's a bigger mouse to hold onto so it doesn't feel like a Tic-Tac box. Apple you disappointed me with the tiny mouse. Can't wait to see if you come out next year with the mouse the size of a wafer cookie.

    Lithium-Ion batteries dont belong in low power devices

    I loved the original magic mouse. The ergonomics weren't very good but I used it as a reminder to step away from the computer. This mouse is no better. Instead of going at my leisure, I need to walk away in order to charge the mouse upside down.

    I have long understood the value of quality Eneloop batteries. I have a large collection for my camera flashes, flashlights, and older electronics. Lithium-ion batteries became a good choice for frequent use, high drain devices like laptops and phones. The other benefit was the extra freedom it gave industrial designers to make the batteries fit in noncylindrical shapes. - The catch? Physics. An Eneloop battery will last. I'm not talking about Duracell's or what you find at the drug store. Any battery that can be bought in bulk is mediocre at best.
    Eneloop batteries are designed specifically to hold a charge when not in use, and maintain sustainable output even when the charge is low. Eneloop batteries can be charged thousands of times while still maintaining full capacity. In comparison, lithium batteries loose a significant amount of their charge capacity after just a few hundred charges. An example is when a smartphone will no longer hold a charge.

    Good enough

    I had the first magic mouse long long time ago and just few days ago I bought the Magic Mouse 2 because there's no other mouse out there that is a perfect partner for a Mac.

    PROS:
    - It is a perfect love affair for Macs OS X - not all os x versions though as I have heard. The ones I'm using is the latest os x and it's perfect.
    - gestures and swipes really works well. Faster than using a conventional mouse in a mac where you have to keep looking for the horizontal scroll bars.

    CONS:
    - this mouse is quite expensive
    - they should have made a mouse that you can use while charging. How hard can it be if Apple have many well paid and brilliant engineers? charging is quick but what if you need the mouse at the moment while charging. Oh well good ol Steve Jobs would say to keep track of the battery and charge before you use it lol
    - Ergonomics of Mighty Mouse is not very good for people with large hands. I have small hand and it doesn't bother me much. I do have friends with large hands said it's awkward to use.


    I keep calling it Mighty Mouse instead of Magic Mouse LOL

    Don't buy it

    Worst mouse I ever used, so un-precise, ergonomics is not good, my hand is hurting me. Is over priced too. Is not work mouse that is for sure. Is making me less productive.

    Excellent

    My old magic mouse is still going but the battery cover has broken so I bought a "2" to replace it. Excellent mouse. Lighter and smoother than the original. Highly recommended.

    TAKE NOTE: It only works on El Capitan

    I've recently bought a new Magic Mouse 2 as my Magic Mouse 1 kept disconnecting from my Mac for no apparent reason. Unfortunately I assumed that as I had a reasonably up to date OS (Yosemite) that it would work. I was wrong... I'll admit it was my fault though; I didn't check the specs to make sure that an Apple accessory would work with a recent (released in 2014) Apple OS running on Apple hardware. Apart from the fact that my Apple mouse won't work on my Apple Mac running Apple OS X 10.10 I think the mouse is great so gets 4 stars.

    Unstable and Uncomfortable - But It Looks Great!

    What is magic about this mouse? A purchase that I regret. I was keen to have my first ever Apple mouse. Loving my MacBook and iPhone I had high expectations. However, after using it for some time, I conclude that the mouse feels unstable, almost wobbly at times. The Apple mouse does not fill the palm of my hand properly meaning i have less control. Also, somehow my left clicks come out as right clicks at times. My reference point was a competitive mouse that I have used for years.

    On the bright side, I think the mouse really looks great.

    Absolutely no problems with MM2

    I am using MM2 on an early 2015 MacBook Pro with retina running El Capitan.

    The mouse is frankly excellent.

    Worked first time when paired via blue tooth and hasn't dropped any signal or felt in time lag between the mouse and the cursor.

    Indeed the mouse works just fine when tested 3 meters away from my Mac.

    In short, I have noted a number of negative comments regarding this device performance it would seem on any Mac not produced in 2014 or above and that being the case that does need address. But if your Mac falls into the category of 2014 or later you should be just fine with this product.

    Mighty Magic Mouse 2

    Another great accessory from Apple. This is the best mouse on the market. Have been using the Magic Mouse since it's launch and have never had a problem using it. I use a mouse a lot and have no adverse effects from using this mouse. Well done Apple.

    Why U Do Dis

    So let's go over our options for the charging port (best to worst)

    1) Front of mouse. Best option
    2) Back of mouse. Second best option
    3) Side of mouse?
    4) Top of mouse??
    5) Underneath it so you can't use it while charging.

    Guess what Apple did?

    On the plus side, juice it for a few minutes and it lasts for hours. Charge it for a few hours and it'll go for a month.

    Great product

    I've had little to no issues with this mouse. Looks great, has great battery life and feels fairly good in the hand. Keeps my USB C port free as well. I've had one disconnect, once. It was near another bluetooth device. Never happened again. I've used it for quite some time now. I feel it could be a hair more accurate for very small motions, where as my Japanese VAIO mouse is a bit more responsive on my PC, but overall usable and above average.

    Fantastic

    I was hesitant to purchase the MM 2 because of the negative reviews.

    So, I visited the Apple Store and took the Magic Mouse 2 on a test drive.

    Then, I came home and read the reviews again and said... Huh ??

    If you are like me, you grow weary of reading BOGUS product reviews.

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with this mouse.

    It is exactly the same form factor as the original.

    It does not "wobble" as one reviewer stated.

    It has a nice heft, drives well and feels great in your hand.

    Bottom line... disregard any review less than four or five stars.

    This is a very good improvement over the original Magic Mouse.

    Excellent

    I'm not one to usually write reviews but there seemed to be quite a few negative comments I felt I should balance them out.

    I find this mouse excellent, I have had no issues at all connecting it (to a Macbook pro purchased June 2015) and so far the battery life seems pretty good. It fits very comfortable in my hand, and is very comfortable for all the finger gestures that can be used on it which I personally find the best feature of the lot.

    I would highly recommend.

    Works great but is pretty much the same as the old one

    Great mouse. It is pricy though and the old one is the same except it takes AAs which I don't mind.

    It kinda works

    Pros:
    -It's a wireless mouse with working X and Y axis
    -Includes a lightning USB cable, a $19 value (rated 1.5 stars from 2,163 reviews)

    Cons:
    -Constantly requires charging, so I have to keep a backup mouse plugged in
    -Can't upgrade from Yosemite on my work laptop, so scrolling + gestures don't work
    -It looks really dumb while it's charging

    Design over function

    While the new Magic Mouse works perfectly with my new IMac when charged, you can't use it while it is charging as the port is on the bottom of the mouse.
    Whoever thought of this design wasn't thinking of the customer. I now have to wait until it charges to use my computer as I don't have a trackpad with the IMac.

    Not comfortable

    The only reason for buying the magic mouse is the compatibility of the system. Otherwise, this is my last option to buy a mouse for this price. The design is sharp, idea is great but terrible consideration on comfortability.

    Some advise for the buyers. If you need a mouse for gaming or everyday use, pass it. If you really do need a mouse compatible with system, get it.
