    Terrible product

    • Written by Koosha P from Amsterdam

    I got this mouse "for free" from my employer, it came with the laptop without asking my opinion. This mouse is a terrible product. Ergonomically, it makes your hand suffer. It disconnects randomly every now and then, with no apparent reason. The charging port is the worst, it's under the mouse, so if it runs out of battery, you can't charge and use it at the same time! I wouldn't buy such a mouse for $1, let alone $99...

    No problem charging this mouse

    • Written by LAURA B from North Babylon

    Why do people constantly complain about the charge port's placement under the mouse? Just charge it overnight along with your other devices. Why is that so difficult??

    The only problem I have with it is the lack of an indicator light. Please add one so I know when the charge is full. Other than that its fine. Really.

    Not worth the price

    • Written by Lee M from Toronto

    This is just an average mouse. I ended up returning it as I found it not comfortable to use as it's so flat that you end up having to put your hand in a claw like shape to use it. My hand was cramping up and it wasn't fun to use. I also found the tracking a bit choppy for the price, as it definitely isn't as smooth as a wired mouse. I bought a $24 Microsoft bluetooth mouse and I find it works much better and is much more comfortable. If this mouse was half the price it would be totally worth it, but for the price you pay you could get a very high quality mouse.

    Why is it black not space gray

    • Written by Dean H from Bellingham

    I understand the complaint about the charging port on the underside of the mouse. Two trains of thought, yes the charge last a long time, but in typical fashion, it fails at that crucial moment, unplanned demo or presentation. I have to carry a back Magic Mouse 1 with batteries.

    Anyway my issue is why is it not space gray on top, no one sees the space gray unless your charging it, it’s a black mouse, can we get a true space gray mouse please....

    connectivity issues across three computers and three magic mouses

    • Written by PAYAM S from Austin

    We have many apple computers from iMac to mini to the latest Macbook pro and it seems all of them are experiencing issues with occasional drop out of the signal of the magic mouses - we now have a box of these and are using various other mice sadly. Not sure how apple has screwed this up so bad - many calls with tech support have yet to fix what seems to be a simple bluetooth device issue. Perhaps my single biggest let down by the apple brand was the failure of these devices to reliably work for even 30 min without some glitch often major. Good luck - it seems that at least some of them work!

    Very interesting.

    • Written by Mike B from Butler

    I've used a trackball for years. Despising the dragging and moving of a mouse on a pad seemed so subservient. Im going to give this Magic Mouse a try for awhile. What is so cool is; quickly moving the Magic Mouse, moves the pointer relatively further across the display. Hahahaha, thats slick. Like I said, this is a trial for the Mouse.

    On my 2nd one...

    • Written by James F from Birmingham

    This *replacement mouse is now lagging with screen movement like the 1st one Apple replaced.
    This is on another iMac also... I truly don't get it - white mouse works FINE!
    Guess I'll be calling for a 3rd replacement soon.

    Absolutely awesome mouse!

    • Written by Adam G from Houston

    I know that getting a mouse for a MacBook isn't really necessary since you have the trackpad, but I wanted to get one since my MacBook Pro sees heavy use with iMovie and it's not very easy using the trackpad to quickly drag something into the timeline or moving an audio track over just a couple inches and it assumes that you're highlighting part of it, but with this mouse, I can do those tasks like a pro. Not to mention that all the issues that the previous version of the Magic Mouse had are now fixed in this one. I have no idea what the deal is with the bad reviews about the flawed design. I do agree that the lightning port on the bottom is a bad design and that you can't use like a classic mouse, but I don't mind it considering how long the battery lasts with normal use and how fast it charges. Plus who still uses a wired mouse in 2019?

    Don't trust the bad reviews, they're all because of user error.

    Magic Mouse 2 performs as expected

    • Written by MARK W from downers grove

    Absolutely no issues. Works exactly like the battery powered version. Ergonomics are identical as well.

    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.

    Generally a very good device

    • Written by Pavel Y from Los Angeles

    It would be a perfect mouse for daily usage if it was slightly bigger and had a zoom function with two fingers like a touchpad.
    As for the charging slot location at the downside, it seems to be a design trade off and I don't care about that much, I don't have to charge it too often thanks to the battery life.

    The mouse generally works perfectly. It feels much more accurate over bluetooth at MacBook than the other mouse I have (twice expensive btw). Despite its touch interface I never confused left and right clicks.

    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.

    Awesome product!

    • Written by Alan Duke W from Las Cruces

    I read a lot of reviews before buying the mouse, which is my normal routine but I'm glad I ignored most of them. Magic Mouse 2 is perfect for your Macbook, I have the New MacBook Air.

    1. The gestures work perfectly.
    2. Battery - listen if you only charge once per month or even every other week, why does it matter where the port is. No successful person is on their laptops 24/7. The device is fully charged in 60-90 minutes and lasts 3-4 weeks.
    3. It just looks and feels good.

    Enjoy your mouse and disregard all the charging talk, its a moot point.

    Perfect

    • Written by Jennifer L from Rockford

    Adjusted settings in system preferences and now is perfect. Bought adapter assuming I’ll need it for other tech later so didn’t mind. So happy it’s rechargeable! Yay! The negative reviews must be paid reviewers by the competition, or simply jealous.

    Limited Functionality.

    • Written by Daniel W from La Crosse

    Scrolling around in Adobe programs or Logic Pro is super easy with this mouse. But it shocks me that Apple doesn't sell a mouse with side buttons or dedicated left and right mouse buttons. I also can't believe iOS doesn't support front/back mouse buttons. Apple seriously needs to get with the times.



    Dear mouse designer at Apple,

    I know how to improve the Magic Mouse WITHOUT changing a thing about it. I'd be more than happy to share my idea with you - just shoot me an email.

    Thanks,

    - disappointed Apple customer

    Works well for my use/situation

    • Written by Ed G from Yorktown

    I am a new Mac user, and I am writing this for similar newer users. Magic Mouse 2 does the job well for me. Knowing what I know and my use I would repurchase. One caveat--the better the surface the better the performance. I use mine at home with MacBook Air. I work on an older wooden dining room table with a minutely irregular surface. The mouse works "okay" on that with the occasional hiccup or "jump". To avoid scratching the table top I place the computer on a hard/smooth surface table mat ( vinyl). I just happened to slide the computer over a bit and used the mouse on that surface and Shazam it has worked smoothly ever since. I imagine it is the sensitivity of the technology but unsure. Easy initial connect to bluetooth and for subsequent connections (if you ever disconnect) as well. Took me a while to figure out to go to the bluetooth icon to do that. Battery usage is excellent. There should be no worries recharging when needed if you occasionally check the MM usage meter ( see blue tooth icon for MM). I can right click, left click, pull-down --all without problem. The multi-touch surface works well for "swipes" and "scrolling". It is sensitive but as my personal "touch" improves using it that, again, performance improves. I have not yet encountered a software program that does not respond to MM use.

    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

    What's The issue?

    • Written by Tyler Z from Baltimore

    I've used this mouse since its inception. It works flawlessly, no lagging issues, anyone who reports that must have an old mac or something wrong with something else other than the mouse. Connects quickly, but it does however disconnect unexpectedly every now and again. The charging port is on the underside. At first it did seem annoying, and realistically is a very poor choice of location, but it takes 10 minutes to charge. Go stretch, take a bathroom break, kiss your wife and kids, by the time you get back its charged. Y'all should be responsible adults and charge the thing at night like you do your phone and everything else anyway.

    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.
