    Great buy

    This product is very useful and flows very well, the pressure touch is a great feature and the gesture customisation makes it extremely easy to use; the simplistic design is also very aesthetically pleasing on a desk or table.

    Really?

    The most cumbersome, poorly designed, user-hostile POS I've ever bought.

    At least it's only £130...

    Apple are the kings of Trackpads

    I got this to use with my Magic Keyboard for when I've got my Macbook Pro 15" setup as a desktop, because the Trackpad on the laptop itself is the best way to interact with macOS, and it's just as good as that, probably better because of the slight incline and it's seriously brilliant.

    Track over mice anyday!

    So much better than any mouse on offer.

    I cannot believe I lived with my iMac without this!? So much easier, so much prettier, so much more comfortable, and so much more productive. Fantastic device that has set the bar in tools other one's hands and fingers and the humble keyboard.

    My Apple mouse is sadly, but happily retired...

    Don't touch this product. Overated and suboptimal in performance

    I bought the Magic Trackpad a few days ago. Nothing Magical about it. If left unatended for more than a few minutes it reverts to not functioning. I have to use my Wacom tablet to resolve functionality.
    Its expensive and given I've only had it for a couple of day, I fear for the future.
    Please don't be tempted. Its unreliable.
    Thanks Apple for the waste of a lot of money!

    Awful product - don't waste your money, should be able to give no stars!

    I bought this new trackpad to replace my old one (which was brilliant, but it recently got broken). When you are using it, the cursor gets stuck on items and wont let go ( Had to shut my machine off as the only way to get it off) When you are browsing on websites, It will unexpectedly load new pages as if you'd clicked on them, even if you haven't (its done this repeatedly when I've not been clicking). Then when I've tried to click on a link to open a new page - its wont! It just keeps trying to highlight words and look them up in the dictionary. I've tried adjusting all the settings and various combinations and it doesn't seem to make any difference. Come on apple, you can do better than this

    No more pain

    When got home having bought the Magic Trackpad; I thought I'd been frivolous , i'd gone crazy.. perhaps I should take it back before I opened it. I certainly kept it hidden so I wouldn't get told off for spending the money.
    But after over six months; I don't know how I lived without it. I work a lot with computers and frequently scrolling up and down the page - on a long night I'd get to the point of my index finger being sore from all the scrolling on the mouse wheel. But since I started using the track pad that is all gone - its smooth - it feels right, quickly it becomes natural to use. Now I'd never go back ...
    ... and the cost... yes its high; but its better to buy one expensive thing that is excellent then to repeatedly buy something the disappoints and eventually gets thrown away.

    Much more convenient than a mouse

    coming from a laptops and phones/ tablets this way of interaction feels much more intuitive, plus the convenience of the gestures allowing me to hide few shortcuts, for more streamline interface. To me it is exactly like a touchscreen, without the need to reach and smudge my imac.

    Expensive - but worth every penny

    It took me quite a while and an issue with my original trackpad that made me order the 'Magic' version. I must admit that the price tag is steep and prevented me for ages from ordering one.

    Now I have had it for a while, not only am I absolutely convinced that it is truly worth every penny, I also felt compelled to leave a review. The quality of this device is extraordinary and considering how much you use it, it makes perfect sense to spend good money. It's like a dull knife in cooking or a cheap mattress; when you consider just how much that dull knife annoys you and how bad you sleep on a cheap mattress and how much time you use both, it suddenly makes perfect sense to invest properly in such items.

    I just wish I bought it earlier!

    A bit disappointing

    I love the bigger area and the fact you can recharge the built-in battery using a USB/Lightening cable. Unfortunately in my case when I use it the wireless mode the trackpad seems to occasionally loose connection (so I can see the Disconnected/Connected) icon on my iMac screen, and - which is much more annoying - the trackpad seems to go into a sleep mode so when I read a longer article in the browser or a piece of code in Xcode and want to scroll I need to 'shake' my fingers for a while to get it going. This feels as if my fingers were wet. I cleaned the trackpad, cleaned my fingers the issue is there, but when you keep the trackpad connected via the cable the issue goes away. So I do use it, but it is constantly connected. I bought the trackpad with Late 2015 iMac so I would it expect them to work together well.

    Fantastic Device! - Stars * * * * * *

    Been using this Magic Trackpad 2 with my MacBook Pro, and Mac Pro for a week now, approximately 10-12 hours per day, and it certainly is a 'major' improvement compared to the Trackpad 1 in terms of performance and usability.

    The price tag for this product may seem expensive to some users, but, after experiencing the following points, it is undoubtedly worth every penny!

    - Solid build quality
    - Lovely feel
    - The full surface haptic feedback is responsive and beautifully refined - a MASSIVE bonus for ease of use!
    - Larger size makes it so much easier to use than the one on the MacBook
    - Consistently maintains its 'pin-point' accuracy over the pointer
    - Pointer movements are always smooth and lag free, pretty impressive for a bluetooth connection!
    - Touch surface is consistently accurate and responsive
    - Responds perfectly to all finger gesture controls

    However, the Magic Trackpad 2 does NOT perform as well on a Windows PC but, then again, being an 'Apple' Trackpad, I assume this device is engineered to be used predominantly with Apple Macs instead of Windows PCs; this is no issue for me because I only use Apple Macs at work and at home anyway, hence, still SIX STARS! I was just curious to discover if this Magic Trackpad 2 would function and perform just as impressively on my friend's Windows PC and Windows laptop, unfortunately it does not. The pointer movements is sometimes jerky and intermittently stops responding, the trackpad also intermittently loses bluetooth connection with Windows etc - avoid using this device on Windows machines!

    Verdict, as in the title, highly recommended for those who favours a larger trackpad device for use with their Macs.

    The worst Apple product ever - I'd give it no stars if I could

    Not only is it awkward to use but it suddenly shuts down or switches off for no apparent reason. Worse still the cursor will suddenly stick to a document or application for some weird reason. Then it'll go flying all over the place. The only way to stop it is to bang the trackpad down on the desk a few times and then switch it on and off.

    This happened all the time but yesterday when I was finishing a major project for a client. Nearly missed the deadline and lost the account.

    Truly appalling. Do not buy it.

    Good quality upgrade

    The charging function alone made this a substantial upgrade to the previous magic trackpad. But it is well built and looks good too.

    Disappointed

    It worked well for a few days but I then found the cursor was left behind my finger movement and I constantly had to correct it. I've now reverted to the mouse. It was fully charged. An expensive trial..

    Great Track Pad

    This is a much better track pad than previous version. Wonderful ease of movement around the screen, instant response to movement and gestures and a much easier right click. The main improvement is the design which has made the trackpad stable and as a consequence easier to use. Even my youngest child noticed how much better Magic Trackpad 2 is and has stopped wanting to use a mouse. One more thing the connectivity with a lightening cable is just a fantastic tool to start up.
