    Bad ergonomics

    • Written by Randall B from VIRGINIA BEACH

    I love my iMac, but hate this mouse. It is ergonomically horrible, and its hard to use the gestures without almost having a sticky mouse pad to keep it from moving. It is also sluggish and hard to use for precision work, like photo/movie editing and even spreadsheets. I am currently using a generic mouse, which does not work with the gestures. This is unfortunate because I can't get the best use of the MAC IOS. Apple does a great job with their computers and I wish they would do the same for their mouse and track pad products.

    New to Mac- Not a great start

    • Written by Deborah S from Gastonia

    This mouse is extremely laggy and needs highly exaggerated hand movements in order to respond. It turns out USB 3s can disrupt the bluetooth connection of the mouse, along with any other bluetooth device connected to your MacBook. The mouse doesn't even come with Thunderbolt 3 charging wire. You'll need to purchase a separate adapter just to charge it. And yes, you read that correctly. The charging wire is not compatible with the very computer this mouse was designed for. For the price- and the brand- I had much higher expectations. Very disappointed.

    Comes with the wrong cable

    • Written by Mindaugas Z from London

    Even tho Apple MacBook Pro has only USB-C ports, Apple mouse comes with the regular USB to lightning cable. So you need to purchase USB-C to lightning cable in order to use it. Utterly ridiculous.

    Surface of mouse has started to peel

    • Written by J Morgan C from Manchester

    I have had the mouse for about 8 months of every other day use, and the edges of the mouse (the thin glossy plastic layer on top) have started to peel! This to me is unacceptable for the price point, and just frankly weird that the design would allow for it to even occur.

    Magic Mouse 2 - a large, $80 left click button

    • Written by Andrew F from Long Beach

    I bought this mouse thinking SURELY it would be possible to use with Maya, or any other CAD software. Unfortunately, I was mistaken. This mouse is super advanced and yet it CAN'T do the most basic things like middle mouse click or right click. It can only left click, and scroll. That's it. Don't expect anything else. And don't think you can use outside plugins to make it work either because I've tried and it doesn't work either.

    On top of that, you need to flip the mouse on it's back like a dying turtle in order to charge it. This means it can't be used while it's charging, because some GENIUS put the charge port on the bottom (yes, that's a pun).

    I guess NO ONE at Apple is using Maya or CAD programs because I found this to be absolutely unusable for 3D art and design (infuriating). I hope whoever designed this mouse reads this review and facepalms themselves into eternity when they realize their shortsightedness

    Had to Return It

    • Written by JEFFREY N from Port Washington

    I recently purchased the MacBook Air with Retina display and I wanted to match my Space Grey laptop with a Space Gray Magic Mouse. It was bad enough that I had to pay a $20 premium to do so but you can't even sync your mouse to the MacBook without buying an adapter since the mouse connection is lightening to USB and the new MacBook is strictly Thunderbolt. So bottom line is that you would need to make an incremental $40 investment versus Apple's already premium priced wireless mouse. This company gets further away from Steve Jobs mantra of quality consumer friendly devices and focuses more and more on its bottom line. Most of us are willing to pay premium price for great products, just not get gouged doing so. Sadly, the apple store folks aren't even aware the issue and this MacBook is 3 months old. In the market for an alternative wireless mouse if anyone has a suggestion.

    Does not come with a USB-C adapter

    • Written by Deborah F from Chesterbrook

    I recently purchased a MacBook Air and bought the Magic Mouse to go with it. I really wanted to like this mouse, I even shelled out the extra for the Space Gray to match my computer; however, when I opened up my new mouse I discovered that I would need to purchase an adapter to get my brand new Apple products to work together. The MacBook Air has two USB-C ports (no USB ports). The Magic Mouse adapter that comes with the mouse is only compatible with a USB port. In order to pair the mouse to the computer they need to be connected via this adapter (this is a one-time thing, later they connect via Bluetooth) so in order to work, I would need to buy a USB to USB-C adapter! Come on Apple, if you're going to move the market, and your customers to the USB-C adapters sell products that are compatible or provide a free work around.

    Very funny problem

    • Written by Mehmet S from Vancouver

    I bought it today and I was very excited. But there is something wrong, the bottom of mouse is not flat, it doesnt stay stable when you leave it on a perfectly flat base. Never seen this kind of problem with any mouse I got. I feel so bad since I gotta go back and change it with another, I am really mad since my 3 hours is wasted.

    issues with tracking

    • Written by Tero H from Mölndal

    Got Magic Mouse 2 to go with my new 2018 MBP, but after couple of days with it, I decided to order a Logitech mouse.
    The tracking is atrociously bad, even if you turn up the mouse speed to fastest option, it still takes large sweeps to force the cursor across the screen. This makes the mouse unusable.

    Also for latest MBPs - you'll have a direct issue with charging the mouse because it comes with USB-A to Thunderbolt cable and 2018 MBP only has USB-C ports. Prepare to buy a dongle/different cable with it.

    The ergonomics of the mouse are bad due to low profile, it offers no rest to your hand so using it for longer periods is tiresome.
    The touch gestures for scrolling are the only saving grace of the device - it's not enough for me to want to keep using it though.

    Literally the WORST mouse ever made

    • Written by Omar N from Barrington

    I really hate giving bad reviews. It is never my intention to ruin the reputation of a companies product, but in this case, I really have no choice. For your own good, please do not purchase this horrible mouse.

    1. The tracking is absolutely awful. It lags like crazy, so you have to plan your mouse movements in advance. In other words, if you want to move the mouse across the screen, you must drag the mouse across the desk and hope that the arrow eventually lands on your intended target. Most likely it won't on the first try though, so you'll have to repeat this step once or twice more for every intended click. Alternatively, you can just move it really slow.

    2. Tons of friction with the mouse feet. Every time I move this mouse, it feels like I am scrapping a brick along my desk.

    3. Atrocious shape, and very uncomfortable for long periods of use. The fact that there is no dedicated left/right click w/ scroll wheel is also very annoying and slows my workflow down a lot. When I click the right side of the mouse to simulate a right click, the whole mouse will sometimes tip over onto its right side. Not good!

    I find that I my productivity in the office is slowed down immensely when using this mouse. It is something that I absolutely dread using, or even looking at due to the mental anguish it gives me just seeing it on my desk. Instead, I use a Logitech gaming mouse and can actually get work done!

    Do NOT buy!

    Terrible!

    • Written by Jake Y from Saint Paul

    The quality is terrible! It is terrible for gaming because 1: The right click is weird and 2: the scroll wheel is a touch gesture so when you try to scroll it goes crazy.

    Not very responsive

    • Written by John M from Fayetteville

    I just purchased the Magic Mouse 2. Not sure want's so magical about it. I think the finger swiping has very poor response. I don't find it very comfortable - doesn't fit the hand well.

    Garbage

    • Written by Kate J from Nerang

    Best place for this mouse is the Garbage Bin. Loses connectivity every 2-3 minutes. Have to wait 10-15 second for it to connect again. Apple swapped out my mouse with a "new" mouse but was not in a box, which was fine for a week and then started to fail. Back to the Apple Mouse 1 (with batteries) that works fine. Apple Mouse 2 is a piece of garbage and a complete waste of money. Also agree about the design flaw with the charger underneath! AVOID!!!

    The Magic Mouse Needs a Complete Redesign

    • Written by Adam S from Loveland

    Apple should have redesigned the Magic Mouse from the ground up so that the charge port is not on the bottom of it. You should be able to charge and use the mouse at the same time. Apple was lazy and just kept the same design and threw a lightning port on the bottom instead of redesigning the mouse to have a charge port in a sensible location.

    Hope You Like Using Cables With Your New Blutetooth Mouse

    • Written by Ben O from Seattle

    Want to use your new $100 bluetooth mouse with more than one MacBook? You're going to have to find an adapter (their laptops support USB-C, but they send you a USB 3.1 cable) and plug the mouse into your laptop every single time you switch between devices because it's not going to pair unless you do so.

    Far too expensive to perform like a peripheral from 1999.

    The charging cable port is on the bottom of the mouse making it unusable when the batteries die (which they do frequently).

    Impossible for real work

    • Written by Jorge R from Talca

    It's sad for a apple fan see how in Magic Mouse the designers forgot to think in function over the form, they have tried to do an sleek design that it's beautiful but worthless for work; that is because it have a so flat and thin design that it has no room for your thumb and little finger, for work in auto cad you need to constantly have your little finger up and hurts after a few minutes, so my beautiful iMac has now a a 6 dollar Logitech gray mouse.

    Yes, the charging port IS a fatal flaw.

    • Written by Karyl G from Dawson Creek

    Unlike Don L from Tucson's nail buffer, if you work on a Mac (like I do) you need to use it every day, for 8+ hours. What am I supposed to do when the battery dies at 3pm? The answer is "have a spare USB mouse lying around", which is a ridiculous solution for a ridiculous design flaw in a ridiculous $99 ($129 CAD) mouse.

    In the previous iteration with batteries, this took roughly a minute to swap out with some fresh rechargeable AAs. Apple created a problem where one didn't exist, for reasons that are completely unfathomable to me.

    The only reason I think people actually use these things is that they get one included with their Mac. Who would willingly drop this much money on a horribly designed piece of junk?

    Returning - Straw that Broke the Camel's Back

    • Written by Chris M from Houston

    Listen, it was already difficult to swallow the price hike JUST for a color other than silver. Also have read several reviews on the poor charge port location (though it charges fast enough that might not be an issue). Despite that, I went through with this because I wanted a mouse that matched my new MacBook Pro. While it is entirely my fault I didn't pay enough attention, it boggles my mind that this does not come with a USB C cable, or at LEAST an adapter. Add that on top of everything else, I no longer want this product.

    Awful mouse stay away from it if you can.

    • Written by Tommy G from Carmichael

    1. Lightning port on the bottom of the mouse, why?
    2. The extremely shallow mouse is incredibly uncomfortable in your hand, and leaves an unnatural fealing.
    3. Zero buttons makes the mouse very inconvenient, (similiar to how the iPhone X is inconvenient due to a lack of a home button.)
    4. $100

    Overall I would just purchase a $10 mouse off of amazon that has buttons, a much more comfortable grip, and doesn't require you to flip your mouse over so that you can use it later.
