    Bad Ergonomics - Pain

    1. It looks great.
    2. It is literally painful to use - it has been impossible for me to find a comfortable hand position to hold and use the scroll surface on it.This leads to wrist strain after prolonged use.
    3. The click is unnecessarily loud. Please consider using haptics on the next one.
    4. The charging port placement is dumb, but I can get over it.

    Unintentional left/right scroll and rubberbanding while scrolling up/down. Gets annoying fast.

    Dont buy this is you want a working mouse

    I have a top of the line Macbook Pro, max RAM (16GB) and fastest i7. Yet the Magic Mouse consistently disconnects the bluetooth connection in every session, everyday. I work with music projects in both Logic X, Cubase and Pro Tools. Every time I load a project/ session with RAM, the mouse disconnects.

    When it starts working again after all RAM is loaded for the project (not even a large project - just 2-4GB), the mouse will lag and drag and stutter.

    It is the most inefficient, flawed mouse I have ever worked with.

    Its a shame because I really wanted to work with this mouse because of its smart glass surface that enables fast zoom in/-out of the sequencer page.

    Unfortunately, I have wanted to throw it against the wall more times than it has been of any benefit with that glass surface.

    So. Um. How difficult would have been to put the charging port on the back rather the bottom? Or the front? Mice do have tails yes? At least then you could continue to be productive rather than explain to your boss that you had to stop work because your desktop rodent died. The only reason I am writing this review is to stall for a minute or two to eek a charge out to finish the last hour of my day. Really? On the bottom? Truly one of the worst designs I've seen to date...and this from Apple. Shocking. Pass the cheese please.

    Do not purchase!

    This may be one of apples worst products! The mouse does not fit in your palm at all. It does not conform to your palm, it is not raised high enough for an easy scrolling mobility. You will need to purchase a mouse pad for the mouse to work. Do not waste $80 on this product! Way over-priced and the product is a huge fail!

    I like this mouse

    I have been on 1 charge for months. Today gave warning was 38%; SO, I plugged in my old Microsoft mouse & went about my business while MM2 was charging. Seemed no time to get it to 100%. I was tired of replacing batteries (however rechargeable Sanyo of which I have plenty). I suppose the fact that I kept my old wired mouse is a good thing. Heck, get a cheap wireless backup if the "no can use while charging" is a problem.

    Great mouse, charging is NOT an issue

    I can't believe how many people give this mouse a bad rating (or even just 1 star) for a really unimportant detail: The charging. IT IS ABSOLUTELY NOT AN ISSUE - if you happen to run out of power, plug it in for 60 seconds (less time to get a cup of coffee) and you are good to go for an hour, or two minutes and it gets you through the rest of your workday. And don't tell me that you obviously need to have the cable with you - if your AA/AAA battery powered mouse runs out of juice, you'd also have to carry a spare battery to keep going. I am more likely to have my lightning cable with me for my iPhone than carrying a spare battery (or two).
    Otherwise the mouse is great, but there is always room for improvement, hence 4 star

    People, get with it!-This mouse is great.

    I can't believe some of the reviews I've read about this mouse. First, its exactly the same shape as my old Apple wireless mouse except this one has rechargeable batteries. Those writers who feel it "doesn't fit their hands" must have gorilla paws. Secondly the rechargeable battery is great. So what the charging port is on the bottom. Can't people turn it over and change overnight or are the naysayers trying to suggest they work 24 hours a day non stop. How ridiculous. The charge lasts forever. People, get a life. Find something really bad to write about. It shouldn't be this mouse.

    Generally confused by this level of stupidity.

    Gives you no warning that the mouse is going to die, and when it does die, you can't use it while it's charging because the charge port is on the bottom. tf?

    Not happy with MM2.... A mouse for 10 $ would be better

    I'd give this a 0/5 if I could. I've used this mouse for about two months now. I was previously using a Logitech G502 on Windows, and just using the trackpad on my MacBook. I wanted a mouse for when the MacBook is docked. The movement scheme for this mouse is dreadful. There is absolutely no precision. This product is an example of choosing ascetics over function. I actually thought that maybe the macOS movement scheme for mice was just wrecked, then I popped my Logitech G502 and everything was fine with that mouse. The magic mouse is horribly unergonomic. It's incredibly uncomfortable to use. It has horrible weighting. It does not glide across a mouse pad or a clean surface easily. And worst of all, you can't charge it while using it because the genius who designed it put the charging port on the bottom. Having said that their are a few redeeming qualities, unfortunately they don't make this mouse worth a purchase. The touch features are really nice for switching desktops and the multi touch features for activating Mission Control. The natural scrolling is nice as well. If Apple could design a mouse like Logitech's chassis, ergonomics, buttons, and precision, and their own ascetics and touch features it would be a godsend. I wish I could return this piece of garbage. Oh well. Without a shadow of a doubt, the absolute worst Apple product I've ever purchased.

    Good mouse in theory

    The shape of the mouse fits your natural hand position and the scroll is very nice. But it disconnects CONSTANTLY which makes it near unusable.

    Ignore the low ratings. This mouse is awesome!

    My husband owned a trackpad and I got the Magic Mouse. My husband used my mouse for a day and fell in love with it, now we are being a second one to replace the trackpad! The only criticism of the mouse is the charging is kind of awkward, but the battery life is decent so it's not a big deal at all. This is hands down the best mouse both my husband and I have every used.

    Frustrating Unreliable and Apple Should be Refunding

    This mouse has been nothing but trouble. I have the version before the rechargeable battery. Quits randomly and regularly. Interrupts work flow and frustrates beyond belief. A slight bump and it looses bluetooth connection or sometimes just randomly looses connection even when untouched. Have tried everything offered as solutions.
    This product should have been recalled and money refunded.
    Yes, I am ticked off about it. For this kind of mooney it should at least work!

    The Magic Mouse 2 is great, but the design is simply lacking. The charging port should be at the top of the mouse, so you can use it as a wired mouse while it charges. Thank You.

    Great response and feels natural

    I have used the mouse for awhile and the mouse has a great natural feel in your palm. The mouse also has fast responsiveness. What is very convenience is the ability to scroll by swiping your fingers.

    Poorly Designed for Charging

    Apple really missed the mark when designing a mouse (and keyboard) that had to be connected to the computer via cable to recharge. If the mouse could be plugged in and used like a wired mouse while charging, it would be reasonable. But the charging port on the Magic Mouse 2 is underneath the mouse, so the mouse can't be used while charging.

    This is less of an issue at home, where I can charge the mouse overnight. But I don't have that luxury in my office, since I take the computer home with me at night. There's nothing to connect the mouse to overnight at the office. My only solution may be to have an extra mouse that I can switch to when my mouse at the office needs to be charged.

    At the very least, Apple should offer a separate charger that the mouse can be plugged into. That way I'd be able to charge my mouse overnight, regardless of where my computer is.

    Outstanding Product

    I bought the magic mouse2 five or six months ago and couldn't be happier - i've literally had NO problems. I work with spreadsheets a lot and this is a dream in that regard.

    I noticed there were a few complaints about having to charge it by plugging in the cord to the bottom of the mouse - while you do have to charge it that way - it's never been an issue for me and the battery life is GREAT (I use it daily for long periods). I think i've charged it 3 times in like 5 months. Plus, the computer tells you when the battery is getting low, so you can just charge it overnight when you get the notice - no big deal.

    Anyway, the hate has gone way too far - I think it's a great product. I'd recommend it to anyone.

    Shake My Head - I've used bars of soap with better ergonomics!

    Totally would like to speak to the design team to understand the thought process behind this mouse? I just bought my first iMAC ever and I'm very confused and left completely dumfounded by this stupid "mouse." It actually is making my blood pressure go up just looking at this dumb thing. Who was paid to make this thing? This is almost like the knock-off brand Dollar Store toys. It looks like mouse...it clicks like a mouse... After using this thing for more than 2 minutes, I actually had to question myself if I had it upside-down, backwards, or maybe I needed to prime it! I've used bars of soap that were better designed for the HUMAN HAND. Did a robot test this thing or what? I will not continue to risk my health by using this thing any longer!

    Get it together Apple Mouse 2 design team! Geez!

    Fundamental Flaw

    Firstly this mouse is very good but needs to be charged from the bottom as mentioned which is a nuisance when charge runs out but as I still have my MM1 it's not the end of the world in theory.

    The biggest problem and huge bug bear is that fact the product comes with a USB-A to Lightning Cable despite the fact that the new Macbook Pro's all come with Thunderbolt / USB-A Ports across the line, this means you have to carry your iPhone charger with you just to charge the mouse if your out or fork out another £30 for a USB-C to Lightning Cable on top of the £80 tou spend on the mouse itself.

    Those two issues combined mean that this is actually a backwards step from the MM1 and hence I have returned the MM2 and will go back to my old mouse even if it isn't quite as smooth as it's easier to chuck my spare pair of rechargeable AA's into and keep them in my bag.
