    Love the black trackpad, it's brilliant

    • Written by Jean-Jacques H from CROWS NEST

    but, for this price, very disappointed to find a (black) regular USB-A to lightning cable in the box, instead of USB-C, for my USB-C only MacBook Pro!

    Works Fine

    • Written by Joshua P from Malibu

    Bought Trackpad a month ago. Charged it once - it's still at 80%. I use it with my iMac - it was incredibly easy to connect and has worked perfectly. It's a really good product - for the life of me, I don't see any credibility in the complaints of other reviews. I very rarely write product reviews, but in this case I'm happy to support a quality product.

    Lasted 16 months

    • Written by Alan D from Alexandria

    Got the trackpad 2 to replace a faulty TP 1 which came with my 2011 imac. Original one lasted 7 years, new one 16 months. I loved the design and operation, but last week it just died, refused to charge, and is now a pretty brick. Apple online tech was courteous & knowledegable. He took over my screen, poked around, and said it was Most Sincerely Dead. There's no way to tell if the unit is charging unless you're in Trackpad Preferences, but if its not charged or charging, its not "discoverable" and won't show up in Preferences! Bit of a Catch-22 design flaw there-put a little green light somewhere on the unit! Guess I'm back to Magic Mouse, which isn't nearly as graceful a product, but at least its working. In all, the internal battery idea is wonderful, but oughta last more than 4 months longer than the warranty period - or Apple should offer a Trackpad Applecare extension.

    I work from home but on a Macbook, the positions of which can be awkward/exhausting on my dominant arm/hand. I am also well over 6' tall so I keep my laptop on a stand to get it at a height comfortable for my neck. I bought the Magic Trackpad 2 in hopes that it would allow me to seamlessly interact with my laptop while set on a stand without having to reach up for it's trackpad every time, which also causes a more serious bend in my wrist.

    The Magic Trackpad did just that. I've yet to have an issue with bluetooth, and I often have the Magic Trackpad + UE BOOM Speaker + business phone running through my laptops Bluetooth at once. Magic Trackpad connects quickly and stays connected. Couldn't give you a solid time on battery life, but I've used mine on a single charge making thousands of minute changes to CAD docs for 7+ hours straight with no issues whatsoever and it didn't even said battery low. MOST IMPORTANTLY it retains all of the functions of the laptop trackpad - clicking, right clicking, swiping, zooming, dashboard, control panel, etc.

    Love it!

    • Written by Ronald S from Albuquerque

    I have a macbook pro - half the time I work on the computer's keyboard and trackpad, half the time I put it in clamshell mode and use an external 4K monitor, wireless keyboard, and was using an older battery powered Apple wireless mouse. I really prefer using a trackpad, and this seems to work exactly like the builtin trackpad - same sensitivity, gestures, etc. I don't notice any lag, spurious clicks, or any of the problems a few others seem to claim. It did originally take me a little time to get used to the force touch and gestures with the builtin trackpad, but really this seems to work just the same. No question it's expensive and the possible need for another adapter is annoying, but as far as working well this is great!

    Laggy, wouldn't recommend

    • Written by Dave G from Chicago

    The Magic Trackpad 2 is LAGGY when compared to the trackpad on my macbook pro...I use the MT2 when I'm plugged into my monitor, which is about 50% of the time, so going back and forth between lag and no lag is very frustrating. I suppose if you use the MT2 100% of the time, it wouldn't be a big deal because you'd get use to it.

    For the price, I'm very unhappy with this product.

    Great in every way

    • Written by Jacquie B from Houston

    I'm so glad that I didn't let a couple of the other reviews steer me away from this trackpad. I used the original trackpad and I liked the way it worked, but replacing batteries was a hassle. Now I have the new keyboard and trackpad 2. I love the look and feel of the trackpad 2. It works perfectly and it lasts a long time between charges. Plus charging is so easy that it barely disrupts my computer activity. Bluetooth connectivity is flawless. I highly recommend.

    Much better than using a mouse, however bluetooth doesn't really work

    • Written by Zach H from Dallas

    The magic trackpad 2 is great for navigating and really helped with my carpel tunnel. I am in advertising and its fantastic for working in motion or editing a photoshoot. Biggest downside is that the bluetooth is awful it is so unreliable that I just leave it plugged in. Ive done all the trouble shooting that is all over the internet. resetting and so on, my computer is a 2018 MacBook pro so its up to date. the bluetooth simply doesn't work. this seems to be on par with the slide in quality that apple has been giving us. Great for navigating, not reliable.

    Expensive and they expect you to go buy an adapter

    • Written by Marvin S from Houston

    This Magic Trackpad is not cheap. To my surprise when I opened the box, it only contained a Lightning USB Cable. Well, I purchased a new MacBook Pro that they insist on only giving you USB-C connectors. So how are you supposed to charge the trackpad? After contacting apple support, their answer is to go out and buy another USB-C adapter so I can charge the brand new expensive Magic Trackpad 2. Sorry but that is too much, I'm returning it tomorrow.

    Great mouse replacement but not really wireless

    • Written by Dinah Simone B from Oakland

    This trackpad is a great and ergonomic replacement for a mouse. It's a good size, too — plenty of space to work with on the trackpad, but it doesn't take up too much space on my desk. I've been using it for about three months.

    Unfortunately, the bluetooth connection has gotten very spotty in the last month or so (even with literally nothing but 18 inches of air between the trackpad and the computer). Typically, when my 2018 iMac wakes from sleep, the Apple bluetooth keyboard connects but this trackpad does not — despite being charged and switched on. The bluetooth utility searches and searches, eventually finds the trackpad, but fails to connect for reasons that are not clear. Sometimes, it drops the bluetooth connection to the keyboard, but that is less frequent and it seems to pick that up again fairly quickly. I think this problem is linked to a software update, so hopefully Apple will fix it in the future.

    Most of the time, I have to plug in the trackpad to use it at all, which is disappointing for a product that is supposed to be wireless. On balance, then, I'd say it's way overpriced for a wired device. Don't buy it until Apple fixes its bluetooth connectivity problems.

    FAR superior to the Magic Mouse

    • Written by Ryan R from Gainesville

    I used to have the First Generation Magic Trackpad and was considering upgrading due to the increased real estate on the Magic Trackpad 2, in addition to things like Force Touch/Haptic feedback/Silent Clicking. I'm really happy with my purchase.

    My MacBook Pro is pretty much always connected to the Big Display on my desk, and if you have a bluetooth keyboard/mouse, you can essentially transform your MacBook into an iMac Pro anytime you want.
    I have a Samsung CH711 Series Curved 32-Inch QHD Monitor in my bedroom, and a Samsung CF791 Series 34-Inch Curved Widescreen Monitor at my office.

    I'm glad I waited until the Space Grey Keyboard and Magic Mouse 2 were released....my table is black glass, and the Space Grey Colors really look elegant on it.
    I'm also a big fan of the new thunderbolt charging port (the 1st gen Trackpad used batteries).

    Just a little side-note: I purchased a Magic Mouse alongside the Trackpad just to see if I might like one over the other. Well...within about 5 seconds I realized the Trackpad is FAR superior to the Magic Mouse in pretty much every way:

    Magic Trackpad 2 vs Magic Mouse
    1. Magic Trackpad can be used while charging, but Magic Mouse cannot
    2. Magic Trackpad is REALLY spacious...lots of room for gestures VS Magic Mouse, with won't work on tables with reflective surfaces unless you have a mousepad.
    3. Trackpad 2 has haptic feedback/force touch vs. Magic Mouse doesn't
    4. GESTURES (most importantly) - gestures are EXTREMELY fluid on the Trackpad 2. Why? Because they're the SAME GESTURES you use with your MacBook! When you switch to the Magic Mouse, you'll quickly realize its limitations and awkward feel whenever you try to swipe through webpages or use any gesture besides "scrolling+clicking"

    Better than I expected. This trackpad is worth the wait!

    • Written by Jonathan M from Edmonds

    I just got this with my new space gray keyboard. I love them both. The trackpad really does offer you more in a smaller package. I personally hate having to get a mousepad depending on the surface you use it on. Moving to the trackpad seems pretty natural so far. The new matching space gray accessories go perfect with the Macbook Pro and LG 5K display. I was really starting to question Apple by not offering this... then one day finally I saw it! Awesome. The multi force touch trackpad is the future. Instead of moving your arm over a foot length surface, with a flick of your wrist you can perform 2-3x the gestures/functions of the mouse. Its great for Final Cut Pro as well. I would recommend this product to anyone 100% satisfied with it. It nearly... nearly... makes up for my $4,000 Macbook Pro that has a faulty bluetooth card, and a $1500 LG display that has image retention (ghosting) regularly. But... the new keyboard and trackpad help to make up for those irritants.

    Great Replacement for a Mouse!

    • Written by Jacob C from Sandy

    I got this trackpad to replace an old bluetooth mouse. I am hooked! Battery lasts for weeks until it needs a recharge, connectivity is quick and easy, and the gestures make working a lot easier. Its very accurate and responsive. I recommend this to anyone who wants an upgrade from a mouse for work.

    On Dec 2017 I got the new iMac Pro and I forgot to order the Space Gray Trackpad. Then after they start selling it separately, I got one. I have been using it for 3 days; less than 1 hour every day and the battery now is 85% !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! While my magic keyboard and mouse have great battery, this trackpad just consumes the battery insanely. This is the first time I felt that I have been fooled by Apple and literally I am not sure whether they sell me a refurbished or new one. I need a replacement.

    Magic Trackpad 2

    • Written by Marty M from Harrington Park

    I mostly use a Logitech MX Master when doing more precision depended work in Avid or Resolve, but I love the Magic Trackpad for general productivity work. Gestures and Force Touch are neat features that streamline my workflow. However, charging an additional $40 just for the Space Grey finish is ridiculous.

    Love the Magic Trackpad!!!!

    • Written by Austin B from Gonzales

    I will never go back to a mouse. I use Apple pro apps a lot (FCPX, Motion, LPX, Compressor) and love working with the Magic Trackpad 2 with these. Speed, accuracy, and in Space Gray it simply looks great.
