    GREAT product!

    Have been using this mouse for two months now and have only had to charge it one time (when I got it out of the box)! Granted, the charging port is on the bottom of the mouse. My solution to those complaining is charge it at night when you're not using the MacBook?? I understand people have different opinions of products, but I see no problems with this mouse that can't be fixed with a little common knowledge! I really dislike the mouse pad on the laptop and this mouse fits all my needs I can't get with the pad. HIGHLY recommend!

    Good functionality, terrible ergonomics

    Good functionality for OSX users but after even 30 minutes of continued use, the mouse is very uncomfortable in the hand. yes it looks great, but that was clearly the only thing that was important when designing this mouse.

    Not for the big-handed

    I just returned to the Mac world with two new Mac Minis. While at the Apple Store (Summerlin / Las Vegas) I gave one of these new mice a try. To any of you with big "paws", this is not a proper mouse. It just doesn't fit a big hand either in height or in the way it feels. It also did not track on the screen in a manner I'd be able to get used to very easily. So, I am using my trusty Logitech M510. It may not be fashionable, but it does the job very well indeed.

    Apple designers seem intent on chasing MOMA Design awards rather than designing things to work comfortably or reliably. I had Apple mice in the past, including that one with the "green pea"-type scrolling ball. It was a great mouse for about three weeks, then dust and dirt caused the green pea not to work. It could not be cleaned easily and the method recommended by Apple made the mouse short-lived.

    Bad Ergonomics - Pain

    Hardware:
    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.

    Software:
    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.

    Really?

    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!

    Design..

    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.
