    DONT' GET THIS MOUSE

    Purchased mouse on January 20, 2017. It lasted to end of March. No longer takes a charge. Attempts to activate warranty failed as Apple won't recognize 17 digit serial number. Save your money and get Logitech mouse.

    The Apple Doorstop

    I have been using - and loving - Apple products since the late 80s, and this is the first Apple product that I truly, actively and loudly HATE!!!

    It has such an aesthetically elegant design… no buttons, no scroll wheel, just a smooth surface. What this means is lots of accidental scrolling (both vertical and horizontal) and zooming. I’m looking at a page online, and all of a sudden everything zooms out of sight, merely because my finger happened to barely touch the mouse. Or I’m looking at a weather map and, without warning, I’m zooming in so far I can almost see blades of grass. And don’t even ask about editing entries in iTunes. It’s a nightmare. I guess the solution is to avoid any contact with the sensitive surface by holding my hand in the air when not using the mouse.

    And that aesthetically elegant design… This would be great if I just sat there admiring the beauty of my mouse. But its weight and shape don’t conform to my hand, and I’m getting carpal tunnel syndrome from it.

    But I love the fact that it’s cordless. Except it periodically needs charging. And where did they put the charging port? On the bottom, so you can’t use it while it’s recharging. Why not put the charging port on the rear end, so it functions like a corded mouse while charging? Did this not even occur to them?

    Did they not even test this piece of s#*t? Did they not have actual people try it and see how it worked? I suppose they can re-market it as the Apple Doorstop.

    why force the purchase of two magic mice??

    who had the idea of putting the charging connection on the bottom of the mouse?? that way the mouse cannot be used during recharging.
    Did the designers not think about how users actually use a mouse?

    Not reliable, like all Apple mice

    I reluctantly bought this product a couple of months ago after four previous magice mice died.
    I have no quibble with the ergonomics. But this morning it stopped responding so I started recharging.
    After six hours of recharge it is still dead. I'm using a USB backup mouse, which is an essential accessory due
    to the charging port being on the bottom of the magic mouse. I'll return the magic mouse to Apple tomorrow.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Shake My Head - I've used bars of soap with better ergonomics!

    Totally would like to speak to the design team to understand the thought process behind this mouse? I just bought my first iMAC ever and I'm very confused and left completely dumfounded by this stupid "mouse." It actually is making my blood pressure go up just looking at this dumb thing. Who was paid to make this thing? This is almost like the knock-off brand Dollar Store toys. It looks like mouse...it clicks like a mouse... After using this thing for more than 2 minutes, I actually had to question myself if I had it upside-down, backwards, or maybe I needed to prime it! I've used bars of soap that were better designed for the HUMAN HAND. Did a robot test this thing or what? I will not continue to risk my health by using this thing any longer!

    Get it together Apple Mouse 2 design team! Geez!

    Useless while charging

    Make sure you forget don't forget to charge your mouse.
    When you do, you have no other option than to hope your boss thinks is ok that you wait and do nothing for as long as the mouse charges.
    Not only is the lightening port under the mouse, but it also shuts off completely while charging.
    Other that hat it more or less looks like the previous version.
    I miss my old one.
    Not that changing batteries part, but at least you could do just that.
    Get new batteries and get back to work.
    Now, off to get coffee...

    Connection trouble

    I can barely get a sentence written before my connection is lost! I truly believe that there is a need to recall these mice.

    WORST MOUSE DESIGN EVER !!!

    I purchased a 27" iMac and expected that the accessories would be finely designed as the computer and, I might add, as they have been with every other Apple product I have purchased since the early 1990's. SERIOUSLY -- A RECHARGEABLE MOUSE WITH A PORT ON THE BOTTOM?????? When you get the message that you need to recharge the mouse, you have to turn it over onto its back so that it becomes totally disabled while it is charging And there is no indicator light to let you know a) if it is charging and b) when it's finished. HOW ON EARTH DID THIS PASS QUALITY CONTROL?

    Thank goodness I kept my old iMac in operation so that I can use it while my the un-MAGIC 2 MOUSE the newest raciest most poorly designed product rests useless while it recharges.

    APPLE YOU OWE US AN EXPLANATION AND A REPLACEMENT! Your design department was out to lunch on this one.

    Worst design ever

    I just had to charge the mouse for the first time since buying my new iMac and was stunned to discover that I cannot use the mouse -- and therefore my iMac -- for the duration of the time that the device charges. With my older iMac and mouse, I was "offline" for the amount of time it took me to pop two AA batteries into the mouse and let it reconnect to bluetooth. I have to agree with all of the other reviewers who have said that the only adequate remedy is to recall this device and replace it for people who are unfortunate enough to own it. The worst product design EVER by Apple. Is there another device anyone can think of that cannot be used at all while charging?!?!
