    The biggest waste of money. I bought this because I generally love using a mouse instead of the mouse pads on the computer, so I thought this mouse was a good idea. Well, I thought wrong. This mouse barely works on any surface, and it's way slower than using the mouse pad. Save your money instead of buying this product.

    gimmick, garbage, gestures are not responsive

    • Written by Jerry T from Mississauga

    looks sleek. innovative, but does not function as well as a hundred dollar mouse should. very disappointed in this. the gesture taps are unresponsive, the right click is poorly designed (you have to lift your left finger for a right click, or hold down command - makes for uncomfort), not everyone loves a low, flat mouse, and the glass top scratches VERY EASILY...not sure if it's even glass..

    overall a very disappointed customer and I would not recommend this mouse to anyone. get it together apple.

    magic mouse 2

    • Written by Barbara V from Smithville

    I would give this mouse a less than one if possible. The engineer who designed this must have gotten his degree from low budget a online school. You can't use it while it is charging, THE PORT IS ON THE BOTTOM. It gives you no warning that the battery is low, it just quits working. I have had mine about 7 months and it won't charge anymore. I paid $100.00 for a piece of junk.

    I wanted to love this mouse

    • Written by Adam G from Austin

    The reason I bought this mouse was for smooth scrolling (since other mice jump increments) and to be able to scroll horizontally (since other mice only do vertical). Even though, it does both of these things well, it often accidentally scrolls, stops or does something else because my fingers accidentally activate it while scrolling / working. Another thing I didn't expect was for it to feel so un-ergonomic. Do not get this mouse if you have ergonomic issues, or use your computer for normal work days.

    I really wanted to love this mouse, but in fact the annoying problems it causes make it worse.

    This thing can literally harm you and your project

    • Written by Steve D from Westminster

    This mouse is so bad that I caution anybody ever using it to be careful. What do I mean? The mouse is so poorly designed that if you are working in a DAW (digital audio workstation) and you accidentally touch the mouse ever so slightly in the wrong place, the volume knob on various plugins will shoot up to max volume, potentially damaging your ears and/or speakers. It will also change parameters of a perfectly good working mix simply by moving the mouse over various parameters when you did not touch anything other than moving the mouse around the screen (without clicking anything). There are 3rd party software solutions that help with this but it's still so crummy that I would recommend if you are reading this to never, ever buy this thing. Seriously, do not buy it.

    Constantly loses bluetooth connection

    • Written by Patrick B from Roselle

    This product is awful. It always loses bluetooth connection. When it is connected, it does all sort of actions that weren't intended. Sad to see what has happen to Apple Products.

    Magic Mouse 2

    • Written by Don P from montvale

    Garbage!!! Completely worthless without Magic Prefs. After about a minute of use my hand and wrist is in pain because of the way the mouse has to be held, and having carpel tunnel doesn't help the matter. Very difficult to use the mouse without my ring finger touching the edge of the mouse which causes the page to move around and makes it quite difficult to click on what you wanted to click on. Defiantly completely 110% worthless with any type of program such as Inkscape Scal etc. If apple is smart they will support Magic Prefs or design their own Magic Prefs type software. it's the only hope for this mouse!!!!! Apple... You need to start listening to your customers.

    Avoid At All Cost!

    • Written by Wayne N from Windsor

    Don't buy it.

    Here are the reasons:
    1) it is not a mouse, but a trackpad/mouse
    2) too sensitive on the left right trackpad function
    3) no ability to adjust or correct (2)

    What does this mean in practical terms:
    a) when your finger touches the mouse it interprets it as a trackpad movement and instead of clicking through a link it highlights instead.
    b) when your finger touches the mouse it interprets it as a left-right swipe and it will swipe your current screen (and work) into oblivion.

    How do I know it is not a defective mouse? I had it replaced and nothing changed, Also, Apple engineering department confirmed that this is how it is.

    How do I know it is not just me? I have been using mice since they first appeared on the scene, it's not me.

    Look, I want to have Apple products as much as the next guy, after all they're great - except this one. When Apple has a product with this many reviews and the most common score is one star - what does that tell you?

    Take a pass, sadly.

    absolutely UNconfigurable, pretty... but useless

    • Written by Ross R from sylvania

    This is a review of "magic mouse 2" (not other reviews). My old MM wore out, I burned through the skids and was abrading the bottom plate so I ordered a new one. I was disappointed to find that magicPrefs no longer worked. Now I'm stuck with what apple thinks I should be doing with my mouse. I could just turn all of the features off, but for this price I want something more than just point and click. I don't need or even understand "gestures" but scrolling is useful (except when the slightest brush of a finger sends your window off to somewhere unrecoverable and you lose hours of work). I am now back to using my old "configurable" mouse. Too bad about this mouse, it's kind of pretty... but useless. Maybe someday apple will relearn the meaning of "configurable". I give it 1 star because I can't give it no stars.

    Rechargeable but not very convenient!

    • Written by Tim M from Castle Rock

    Rechargeable battery seems like a great idea, but it is not. You cannot use the mouse while it is charging since the charge port is on the bottom, so you’d better hope to remember to charge it every time you walk away from your computer or you’ll end up without the ability to use your computer while your mouse charges since you’ll probably not get any low battery reminders until it is too late.

    Terribly hard and loud clicking

    • Written by Alexandra S from London

    I love the Magic Mouse, but my original one is now battered and chipped, so thought I'd get a new one. Apple is always overpriced, and nowhere more so than for its extras, but I forked out the 79GBP in expectation of the fresh and lovely MM2. Going by keyboards, which have been getting smoother and softer, I was looking forward to an even nicer experience with the MM2, but oh how wrong I was... The thing feels like a fallback to early computer days, where you had to press everything really hard to get any action, and the accompanying sound could wake up the dead. It is genuinely impossible to work with MM2, it is so uncomfortable and LOUD! I searched online for remedies, but it looks like the problem is with the hardware, so, basically £79 completely wasted. Incomprehensible and reprehensible.

    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!!!

    Not worth it and bad purchase

    • Written by Adam Z from Parker

    The mouse is very expensive and is not anywhere near the price it should be. The mouse is very sensitive and will scroll, click, and do stuff when you didn't do those things. It takes hours to charge. Apple should have stuck with regular ports rather than bluetooth mouses

    An awful mouse

    • Written by John M from Stoneham

    This mouse has been awful since day one. It's super low-profile shape makes it difficult to comfortable fit in your hand. The scrolling mechanism likes to pick up ghost input and often times randomly scrolls up and down. It also will "see" a right click when you left click, a lot. It is an all around bad design, I'm surprised Apple has had this mouse out for as long as it has. I guess they feel if their mouse is bad, more people will switch to the trackpad. But for mouse users, you are not going to be happy with this.

    How does a company so integral to the world of design create such a poorly designed product? By far the most frustrating and uncomfortable piece of tech I have ever used by Apple; whomever designed this mouse must hate anyone with hands! After five minutes of using this mouse, I was ready to throw it through my computer screen. Using this mouse for design work would be like running a marathon in flip-flops; it's possible but no one with any sense would do it. Shame I have to even give it 1 star... Come on Apple, be better.

    Can't use while recharging

    • Written by Hannah T from Washington

    Terrible design. On a previous version of this mouse, you could recharge it via a slot on the top of the mouse, allowing you to plug it into your computer and continue using it while the product recharged. Why would Apple redesign it to have the slot for the charging cable on the underside of the mouse? I'm getting rid of this product and going back to a version that takes replaceable double AA batteries.

    STAY AWAY - mouse will give you carpel tunnel syndrome

    • Written by Ashley A from Chicago

    This is the most uncomfortable mouse on the planet. Some of the features are nice, but its an ergonomic disaster. You are risking injuring your wrist by using this mouse. Do not buy this. ANY Logitech mouse is better than this.

    charging port on the bottom of the mouse?

    • Written by ariel M from Shade

    i can't believe Apple designers couldn't figure out how to position the charging cable for this mouse in such a way that it COULD BE USED WHILE CHARGING! am i supposed to just take a little break in the middle of the work-day when my mouse is out of juice? seriously poor design.
