    Generally good but with one big bad for me

    Looks great, feels great and the larger active area is nice. The haptic feedback is perfect really all but impossible to tell there isn't a real physical clicker in it.

    Rechargeable battery almost makes it worth the price (saves batteries, don't have to rummage through utility draw for replacements)

    Big Bad for me though is that when dragging and dropping more than a few files the whole thing becomes unresponsive.
    From 1 to ~40 files its fine, more than that nothing... no animation of the action, no file count indicator, and if you just pretend it's actually happening in the background just carry on the drag and drop the files don't get moved/copied... try again... nothing, and again and again and again, still nothing.
    Then maybe a minute or two later it will co-operate and do the action. not the system as the old trackpad still works fine for same operation, disabled most of the functions in the preferences and it still struggles on simple drag and drop operations.

    Fantastic!!

    Just received my Magic Trackpad today. Even better than version 1. So smooth and easy to use, whether it's tapping, dragging, swiping. Setup is so easy. Works flawlessly. Great job Apple!!!

    Real Big Touch Experience.

    The touch surface is simply... HUGE. It's so HUGE that I bought it for my 15" MacBook Pro as an alternative trackpad. As I place my MacBook Pro at my bedside upon a stack of books and I sit on the bed cross-legged to use it, I find it more comfortable to have a trackpad on my bed instead of having to raise my arms to the level of the laptop, which is somewhere between my chest and my stomach. Perhaps I might even consider buying a Magic Keyboard for use on bed level. This thing is just exquisite, but rather expensive. Nevertheless the sheer size of the touch surface really pleases my fingers. It deserves 5 stars, but I take away 1 star because it is indeed rather expensive.

    Significantly worse than the original.

    Doesn't register clicks properly, hard to use. It's just worse than the old one in every way.

    Magic Trackpad 2

    When I saw this new trackpad I was very skeptical, but I still ordered it anyway and I glad I did. It clicks anywhere it's much bigger than the first one which is great it's just a great great product overall a little expensive though bit well worth the money.

    Amazing function and style and totally worth the price...

    This new trackpad is a no-brainer for trackpad lovers. There is no comparison with the original Magic Trackpad whatsoever and anyone who says it is too expensive is not appreciating all it has to offer. It just works and so effortlessly, it is beautiful and looks amazing on my desk and love the glass surface. It is so comfortable to run your fingers across and you will hate your laptop trackpads forever more.
    Run, don't walk and buy this baby if you want a fabulous, responsive, easy on the eyes, new piece of wonderful Apple tech! Thank you again Apple!

    Trackpad surface cracked after accidental drop

    No doubt it's a nice product but too fragile.
    Accidentally, dropped on the floor while cleaning my desk.
    The trackpad surface crack instantly.

    Since Apple care doesn't cover it, need to repurchase at full price, and it's actually more expensive than previous model.
    Considering, I got it at less than half the retail price when I got my iMac.

    Buyers beware.
