    Stick to the V1 version, this one is an useless expensive paper weight!

    Who puts the charging port under a mouse? Does the iPhone, iPad or even MacBooks have a charging port on their backs? Useless, just stupid really...
    Stick to an old used V1 or even get a Logitech/Microsoft mouse cause this one is an expensive paper weight!

    The Functionality of the Magic Mouse is wonderful

    I've been using the Apple mice since 2004 and they continue to be excellent. The Magic Mouse (1) and now version 2 are perfect for my use as a writer and fine art photographer. It is well designed with a nice feel in my hand and well weighted for smooth movement. As for charging and holding the charge, I find that it holds a charge for a long time. I purposely charge it once a month, but it can last longer as I found out when I forgot to charge it. I put it on charge, along with my Apple Bluetooth large keyboard, over night once a month and it is ready to go in the morning. I really don't care whether the charging port is on the bottom or anywhere else they might want to put it. It works and I'm so glad I don't have to put batteries in it regularly as with the older version.

    Magic Mouse 2 - You're Fired

    I just retired my third and last Magic Mouse. Here is my list of grievances. First, the amount of resistance that exists is annoying. It requires twice as much finger force when compared to the Logitech M510 that just got promoted. Second, the sound of the mouse when you click is unpleasant and loud. Third, without a split, the accuracy of the right or left clicks is very inaccurate. Fourth, if you get any kind of moisture on your hand, like after picking up a cold beverage with condensation on it, your ability to use the mouse is reduced significantly because the device can't figure out what you are doing despite the swiping one or several digits. Fifth, the optics on the mouse are terrible. The mouse will not work on a museum issue mousepad with faux Persian carpet print like any other mouse that own will. Sixth, the position of the charging slot is a terrific example of the Apple design team's obsessive compulsive nature. They decided that no one should see the charing connection yet failed to consider the aesthetics of an upside own mouse charging like a flipped turtle on top of a desktop. Seven, the price of $79 is high for a paper weight that works some of the time.

    Bad ergonomic. hate it. worst mouse out in the market

    The gestures are nice and all but it feels weird to hold, it doesn't fill my hand. Not my fav at all. And the charging port in at the bottom of the mouse��. I found myself using other mice. i would not recommend this mouse to anyone.

    Let down by the most irrational charging cable position

    The core features for the mouse aren't the issue. They work as to be expected but, it seems that Apple want to kill productivity.

    Completely baffled as to why you'd place the charging cable at the bottom, rendering it useless during charge? Utter madness.

    pure garbage

    My employer bought new iMacs for the office and mine came with this hunk of trash. At first I was thrilled. Slowly I have grown to hate this thing and am debating going to the store on my own and buying my own mouse for work. This mouse scrolls randomly in the software program I use at work, I have to go back and forth to update files. It is REALLY annoying. It also zooms in and out at random, a few times without me even touching it. It also causes the office software to wiggle onscreen and randomly jumps between screens. I've dropped the sensitivity to the lowest, got rid of my mouse pad, and disabled all the special features on this thing. Even with all of that, the mouse STILL scrolls randomly, causes programs to wiggle and jump, zooms randomly in Safari and Chrome, and jumps windows like crazy. The other day it was trying to delete my emails. It is a nuisance. I don't know why Apple decided to make something so useless for the office for a computer that might be bought by an office but they did. At the end of the day I want to rip out my hair, this mouse is so aggravating. I do not recommend it.

    Very disapointed !

    I rarely write negative comments.
    But considering the price of this mouse, it should be perfect, and it is really not up to the expectation.
    If the esthetic looks ok, but the use is awful. When your mouse is charging you simply can't use it anymore ! Who thought of putting the charger under it ? It should better be thicker but usable while charging ! This is bad design !

    Then, why do you sell a Macbook with USC port only and a mouth with USB port charger (both not compatible)?

    Grade - just a C

    It's a little below average. It works most of the time but that means about 80%. And when it's about to go dead because the battery is drained you find out too late. It looks cool but it's not as good as a $15 mouse by the generic makers of such.

    Really works great !

    I have absolutely no idea why people are complaining about this mouse. I haven't had any problems with functionality and it is really well designed and easy to use. It works much better and much more reliably than the touch pad on my previous pc laptop. The only drawback keeping me from giving it 5 stars is that you can't use the device and charge at the same time. That should be fixed on future versions. I liked the mouse so much that I bought a 2nd to solve that problem. Use 1 while charging the other.

    Solid product

    I bought this mouse in 2017 to use with my MacBook Pro and I have zero regrets, despite the $79 price tag. It seamlessly connects via Bluetooth to my computer whenever in range. I find it a very convenient way to interact with my computer. If you are new to it the gestures may be a bit awkward but it is easy to get used to. Holds a charge for a long time and I can just plug it into my computer using my USB adapter but it comes with a normal USB charging cord that you can plug into a typical USB adapter. Overall very pleased with the product.

    Terrible -- just terrible!

    I could live with the stupid charge port on the bottom of the mouse, but I can *not* live with the overly-sensitive touch surface that produces false scrolling actions. Windows jitter and shake, and it's nearly impossible to "point" this thing with any accuracy. (It's horribly uncomfortable too.) Does it look cool? I guess... and to Apple, that's all that counts. Since getting my new iMac a week ago, I've tried -- really TRIED -- to like this thing. I've fine-tuned the settings in System Preferences, and spent hours using it, hoping I would "get the hang of it." Nope. It's just an awful mouse. Maybe I'll donate mine to those guys who crush things with a hydraulic press on YouTube. In the meantime, I'm going back to my trusty 12-year old cheapie Dell mouse.

    I don't buy apple product just for function

    Sure this is good mouse like previous one. only problem is you have to charge it. I buy apple products because they used to make me realize "wow there are incredibly smart people out there thinking about better way to do things better and simpler" but apple magic mouse 2 is one of the biggest garbage i have ever bough in my entire life. If i wanted a smooth awesome Bluetooth mouse I could have gone to any 3rd party mouse company and pay less to get what I wanted and i don't have to charge it. I can just replace the battery like the first one. not charging is on the bottom. I buy apple products because they are innovative and not because they are expensive and useless. This product has zero value to me. I am really sorry for those who are satisfied with this garbage because steve jobs would never let this BS to become a product.

    This mouse is horrible

    This is the least reliable gadget I've ever seen come out of Apple. It's almost impossible to dor precision mouse work with this and it seems to send random scrolling and clicking messages, which have broken several of the apps I rely on. I have do do precision selection, clicking, scrolling etc. in music notation programs and they just don't work anymore thanks to this lousy mouse. I have actually had to use an old-style wired mouse from my previous 9-year-old Mac Pro, which never messed up in this way. I can't believe Apple has bundled this junk with my otherwise fantastic 2017 iMac.

    P.U. Ten thumbs down; find another device.

    Horrible design, poor ergo, poor quality, disconnect

    You want to develop pain in your wrist ? this is the perfect mouse.

    You want a mouse that disconnect when it's close from your phone, is not accurate either at pointing or scrolling? this is the perfect mouse.

    Apple keyboards and mouses are poorly made and designed. I just add to throw away a bluetooth apple keyboard because one of the battery leaked and it's now impossible to remove the battery cap.

    Get a good mechanical keyboard, a good large and comfortable mouse and forget about those.

    Fantastic

    I don't understand all of the negative reviews here. The mouse looks and feels great, works really well and the gesture capabilities are extremely useful. The battery lasts for a really long time, just remember to charge it while you aren't using it. I think the mouse would have looked worse if the charging port were sticking out of one of the sides, just don't be dumb and forget to charge it. I've never had a problem running out of battery.

    Stopped working

    I bought this mouse about 9 months ago after I got my Mac Book Pro. I recently stopped responding to movements on my mouse pad. It still scrolls but I thought it would last longer.

    Send me a Magic Mouse 1 and full keyboard please

    I just purchased an Imac, and of course it comes with the magic mouse 2. I'm writing this on my laptop because I'm for that stupid mouse to charge... You guys have to be kidding me to actually approve a design like this. I only use your products and I've loved them so far, but now I'm faced with half a keyboard that needs to be charged and a mouse that I can't even use while I'm charging it... Things are starting feel a bit slimy with all these extra purchases I need to make.

    Apple’s Magic Mouse 2 Unfit for Purpose?

    The Magic Mouse that came with my 27” iMac is almost unusable. I say “almost” because I am still using it. But it frequently drives me nearly to tears. Spreadsheets in particular are really difficult. The cell dances about as the mouse “mini-scrolls” when you try to select it with a click. Sometimes it takes a dozen clicks to get the cell selected and that’s when the whole sheet hasn’t scrolled down or sideways a couple of screens.

    That’s the problem, you see; as you press down to click on a cell, your fingertip on the surface of the mouse spreads. Flesh does this! But the mouse interprets it as a scrolling motion. Not a lot but it’s enough to move the sheet and the subsequent click is ignored.

    Its not just spreadsheets; it happens with all programs. Word processor pages scroll, graphics programs zoom in and out, and as I said, spreadsheet cells dance about under the pointer.

    It all went wrong when I bought the new iMac in 2015. It came with El Capitan and Magic Mouse 2. I assumed it was a “feature” of the new Magic Mouse with its rechargeable batteries but it’s clearly OS- related because my wife’s Magic Mouse 1 is now driving her mad ever since I updated her OS to El Capitan (from Snow Leopard!).

    Personally , I believe the mouse to be unfit for purpose. I know I’m not alone. I also know that Apple disagrees and has no intention of doing anything about it.

    Which leaves me rather stuck.
