    Very pleased..

    Firstly I don't know why others are mourning about the charging port being under the mouse as its not a big deal.
    Here are my reasons of why -ve comments are no brainer after using it for few weeks now:
    - I have it for almost 3 weeks now (using almost every day during office hours) and the charge has gone down to 75% since full charge. So pretty amazing.
    - The charging is very fast, even there was a scenario where one forgets to charge (in 6-8 weeks time) then probably would need 5mins to get it operational for few more days if not week(s).
    - How on earth is someone going to use a mouse while having a cable attached for charging? This is idiotic!
    - Good charging port is not visible so it leaves the pretty looks intact.

    So my suggestion ignore the -ve comments as I am beginning to believe none of them have even used it.

    Overall the mouse is great,good grip, smooth and balanced weight. In addition love the gestures on top surface as they are very handy.
    I would rate 5 star and would recommend to anyone.

    Great idea, weak execution.

    Can't tell you the number of times I've come in to work on Monday to a DEAD magic mouse. It wasn't turned on all weekend. I turn it off whenever I leave my desk for more than an hour (having been trained to conserve AA batteries with the last version). Can't use it while charging. Hm. Not very helpful. They couldn't have put charging ports on the side so you CAN use it while charging? I love the action of the mouse—no complaints there—but the charging issue—and the length of time the mouse holds a charge leaves much to be desired.

    Great mouse - what is everyone talking about!?!

    I was shocked to see all the negative reviews on here. This is a great mouse - well worth the money. It works on every surface; it easily synced with my MacBook Pro; the scrolling function without a trackball is awesome; and it lasts a long time without charging. Yes, the charging slot is on the bottom of the mouse, so you cannot use it while it is charging, but there is not a single mouse on the market that can be charged while in use!
    I wish it was a little cheaper, as I wish every MAC product was cheaper, but like all apple products, it lasts and thus is worth the investment.

    mouse returned

    After using the magic mouse2 for a week, I ended up returning it and upgraded to Track Pad 2. Problem with the mouse was that it would lose bluetooth connection for a second or so, or it wasn't fluid as there was minor stuttering. I have the iMac 27 inch screen, and the mouse created more work for my hand/risk to go from one end to the other end of the screen. Lastly, I didn't like where the charging port was located at. These may not be big issues for you, but I like to work fluidly as much as possible.

    Annoying scrolling

    Not smooth in scrolling pages at all.
    Too less gestures.
    Can't use during charging.
    Limited support in OS.
    Delayed connecting speed.
    Loud clicking sound.

    great mouse

    Love this mouse! love you don't have to put batteries in it anymore, and they include a lightning ca able to charge it. my only complaint is that it should have put the charging port on the side or some where so while it charges it can be setting flat. it charges fast and last at least a month for me and i use it daily.

    Just works like it should

    Used Magic Mouse 1 for over two years. Enjoyed them, bought my own rechargeable Eneloop batteries for them. Worked great.
    Now I switched to Magic 2, it was as easy as 'plug and play', or I should say 'on and play'. Keyboard came charged, mouse not. Plugged in the Apple cable that came with the mouse to charge it, took a cup of coffee, and it was ready to use when I finished my coffee. (I drink my coffee hot) ;)

    Some people worry about the bottom charging on the mouse. I use it every day, 14-18 hours each day, but the battery lasts long enough, so I did not run into any issues with it being empty. Charging it 10 minutes would give it another half day of work. I like the scrolling on the mouse.
    I had to get used to the keyboard design, with it being flush on the side, instead of open underneath to grab it, or put it away. But I got used to it now.

    Great product!

    1st gen Margic Mouse user and the Magic Mouse 2 works as expected and it's much lighter. Yes, you can't use it while it's charging but you only need a few minutes of charge for a couple of hours use. For all the functions to work, you will have to upgrade to El Capitan if you're still on Yosemite.

    The Worst Apple Mouse Ever Made

    The only good thing about this mouse is that you don't have to pay for AA batteries every so often. Beyond that, this product is a step backwards compared to it's predecessor. You cannot use the mouse while it is charging, which is what you'd expect from a cheap PC mouse, not an expensive Apple mouse. The charger also requires you to use one of the Mac's precious few USB ports while it charges. However, the worst issue with this product are the intermittent connection failures -sometimes the mouse won't even connect at all without restarting the entire computer.

    Avoid this product at all costs: invest in the previous model instead. You might spend more in AA batteries, but you'll also have a product that works.

    Good improvement over previous Magic Mouse

    I found this mouse to be better than my previous Magic Mouse.

    When compared to the previous mouse:
    Pros:
    1. No more lost connections between computer and mouse.
    2. No need to replace batteries.
    3. Quick to recharge.
    4. Instant pairing.
    5. Much more energy efficient than previous mouse.
    6. Battery recharges quicker than AAs.
    7. Lighter and easier to use with less resistance.
    8. Great new look at the bottom.
    Cons:
    1. Can't use while recharging.
    That's about it.

    I highly recommend this product to any mac user. And if you experience any real issues with this product. try to get a replacement before you write negative reviews.

    Avoid this mouse

    I've been a Mac user for years - but i've been working on a PC for business the past 10. I recently went back to grad school and opted for a MacBook Pro and Magic Mouse 2. Even at times the computer seems clunky and slow - the worse complaint is this Magic Mouse!! It takes a rocket scientist to get it open to replace batteries (there are a lot of websites that provide instructions, that ought to tell you something) but it is always a chore to get the back open. To add injury to insult, this mouse eats batteries like crazy!!! I am an average user as far as time goes, but I'm replacing batteries every two weeks. No kidding!!!

    It has a mind of its own too. It struggles to wake up and goes dormant on and off all the time. Junk. What happened to Apple quality?

    The worst!

    Absolutely the most annoying thing ever. You have to be very careful about where you click. More times than not it gives you a right click (menus, etc) instead of a left. You have to be on the extreme left to get a left click. If you have your finger resting on top and move the mouse sideways in any way, it will change the screen, navigate you away from the app your working on, or select multiple excel columns, etc. I can't even tell you the number of times in a day I want to throw this thing against the wall.

    Haters going to hate.

    I've seen a lot of negative reviews about the magic mouse 2 and I have to disagree. This mouse is simple, the gestures feature is amazing, and the design is super sexy. I thought I would regret spending the extra cash on this mouse and I'm sure glad I did. The main criticism I see echoed over and over is that you can't use the mouse while it's charging. And if you have an iMac or other device that doesn't have a built in trackpad I can see how that is annoying, but the mouse charges quickly and it's easy enough to check the battery level in the System Preferences. So if you're mouse dies, plug her in and go get some fresh air when you return she should have enough juice to finish the day. You probably deserved a break anyhow.

    Ouch

    Can anyone post a link to another mouse that has the charging port ON THE BOTTOM? It is such an innovative design I just have to see where they stole the concept from.

    Simply put the best mouse out there

    I always wondered how a mouse could work without a second click or even a wheel, but Apple's design has solved it in such a brilliant way. Everytime I touch my mouse I feel grateful for the quality and value that apple puts into every product.

    If you are interested in a mouse instead of a trackpad (which I prefer) go for this one, and you won't regret it. The quality (metal and crystal) is just unbeatable. Other cheap plastic mouses are horrible.

    P.S. It works even in the most irregular surfaces, doesn't have to be specifically on a flat surface with perfect reflection material. It just works.

    Not so great

    This mouse is frustrating to use. Accidentally brush a finger against the top and it goes scrolling all over the place. It depends on the program being used as to what will happen. Sometimes it is not as big an issue as it is other times. As an example, in Access via Parallels Desktop for Mac, accidentally swipe to the right and you end up with a blank window. And that’s not one of the biggest problems with this. Then at times when you want it scroll, it doesn’t…or at least not very well. Then there is the charging port located on the bottom of the mouse. I will say the mouse will hold a charge quite a long time. I’ve had this one that came with the iMac for a couple of months and have only charged it once. But I don’t use it every day because of the above issues. Will it continue to hold a charge as it gets older, who knows. If it doesn’t, that makes the charging port on the bottom even more of an issue. If I only used Mail and Safari, I might be able to live with it. Oh yea, and no middle mouse button.

    Never

    You guys over at apple just cant get it right can you? Look. I love the tracking that an apple mouse offers...its smooth and percise when working with the pen tool or any other adobe product. Now the bad. This goes for EVERY MOUSE APPLE HAS EVER CREATED. The scroll doesnt work...its that simple. There is no scroll. My ring finger brushes the side of the mouse when i work. so ill be there working then all of a sudden my page scrolls up or down lightning fast. On the previous mouse, the one with the little ball for scrolling, well lets just say thats the one im using now and that ball shouldnt even be there. It broke like 50 times no matter how many times i try to clean it. heres an idea apple. Create a mouse that just has a wheel for scrolling. stop trying to be cute. its not in the best interest for the design... besides.. for a design to be a good one..looks dont matter first.. functionality does. stop worrying about the form over the functionality. JUST ONCE!!!

    Bad design. Embarrassment of an Apple product.

    Charging port is on the bottom of the mouse. Makes it impossible to use while charging. That alone is enough to give a 1 star review. Apple botched this one.
