    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.

    Great mouse but Apple can do better

    I purchased the latest mouse due to tracking issues with the original Magic Mouse so it's great to have full functionality again.
    No problems with the automatic pairing which worked as expected for an Apple product.
    It is possible to view the remaining charge. Click on the Bluetooth icon in the menu bar and highlight the mouse to view the remaining battery. Some reviewers seem not to have noticed this.
    Like others that have reviewed it I'm surprised by the location of the charging port. It would have made more sense to put it on the front but it's great not to have to mess around changing batteries every few weeks.

    I would have thought that Apple would have taken the chance to maybe change the design and provide more functionality. They do seem to be losing their way slightly of late hence the 4 star rating.

    Not the best Apple experience

    Out of the box, it paired right away with my iMac running Yosemite, but no cursor movement. After calling into tech support, it took rebooting the mac holding down command+option+r+p to clear nvram. Then it started to work. However, still haven't gotten scroll to work yet. Are macs supposed to be this difficult? I thought that is why I left Windows....

    Magic Mouse 2 vs Magic Mouse 1

    WeI have two iMac's and the newer one has MM2. I find it smoother and even more comfortable to use than the MM1, and the built in battery lasts longer than the rechargeable batteries I use in MM1.
    The main thing for me though is that the MM2 retains a solid bluetooth connection to whichever machine I am using on, whereas the MM1 has always been prone to disconnecting or taking a while to connect.
    The fact that you cannot use the mouse while it is charging did worry me slightly at first, but, as I assume the the battery does not suffer from reduced capacity due to 'memory' problems, one can just keep an eye on it and recharge it well before it gets too low for a days use. Perhaps put a monthly reminder in the Calendar.

    It's ok but...

    Ok so I like it but it looks really weird plugging it in on the bottom. At first, it wouldn't connect, and I had to reinstall OS X for it to work correctly. Please note it only works with OS X El Capitan. It works with the iPhone Lightning Dock, which is cool I guess. I love how it comes with a lightning cable. It would be cool if they could put the lightning cable port on the front so you could also use it as a wired mouse, or at least use it while it's charging.

    SO DISAPPOINTED !!! Magic Mouse 2

    I bought a new Magic Mouse today to replace my one that died. I connected it to my Macbook Pro and i can only use it to click. It will NOT scroll or swipe. Apple support says the Magic Mouse 2 is designed for OSX 10.11 and up.
    WHAT? What are you thinking Apple!
    Apple support told me they could not find anything different between Magic Mouse 1 and Magic Mouse 2 except one uses batteries and the other is rechargeable.
    I am trying to be productive in my job...not spend WAISTED time thinking about connecting a BLUETOOTH mouse !!! REALLY? This is a no brainer. OSX 10.11 has only been a few months. Way to go Apple engineers and marketing specialists.
    And i can't even find the Magic Mouse 1 on the Apple website.
    So is this Apples way to get 15 million macbook users to upgrade to the new El Capitan OSX.
    This is great Apple. I will shop somewhere else.

    disappointed

    no longer has a green light to show it is charged, nor does it interact with the Mac to show charge level. Inconvenient, and makes no sense.

    Love using it but charging it look darn weird for a product by Apple

    Works extremely well and as expected. Same user experience as the original Magic Mouse.

    Charging it, is a really weird user experience for a product designed in California by Apple. Look like a dead mouse stuff by lightning cable. Completely turn my desk ecstatic around to a completely different level.

    When charging, my magic mouse 2 need to be missing on my desk, thus missing 1 star.

    Nice Improvement...Kind of

    I just bought the Magic Mouse 2 and had a few questions/ design improvements that I thought might be useful. Let me start off by saying that the rechargeable battery is a big improvement that removes a lot of hassle with the Magic Mouse. On that note I wanted to point out the major flaw of it... why would Apple not put the lightning port at the from of the mouse? It is currently at the bottom and it makes no sense. Putting at the from of the device would allow a person to still use the mouse while it was charging and could make it so that while it was plugged in to charge it would function as a wired mouse. This would satisfy both the wired and wireless mouse demographic. I find it inconvenient to have to stop using the mouse just to charge it and frankly, it looks odd having an upside down mouse charging on my desk. Mostly positive, just one major flaw.
