    Solid mouse!

    I purchased the Magic Mouse 2 as an upgrade over the Magic Mouse 1. I've been using the Magic Mouse since Apple came out with it and have previously used the first version and second version of the Magic Mouse 1 (the original version had an issue with battery connection that was later fixed). The Magic Mouse 2 is a great improvement over Magic Mouse 1. The charges do last more than I'd expect. My only gripe (and drop of a star) is that the charging port on the mouse is on the underside of the mouse. It makes the mouse practically unusable when charging. I usually have to charge my mouse when I'm using my computer. I've love to see Magic Mouse 3 to somehow incorporate a charging port that doesn't interrupt functionality, similar to the chargeable keyboard.

    Movement fluidity very dependent on work surface

    This was our third purchase of an Apple Magic Mouse 2. My wife's older one glides smoothly across her desk surface, no problem. My first one was great for the first few weeks, but after that, the two rails began feeling a bit "sticky" against my hard laminate desk surface. Bought another one and used exclusively on a "gamers" mouse pad, but my experience was similar to the previous mouse. These units work OK, but sometimes not ideal if you need to move the screen pointer only a tiny distance and there's resistance to that small motion within the rail-to-work surface interface. The rail material appears to be too soft, and noticeable wear patterns are visible after using a few days.

    People with low reviews apparently did not read up on the product OR didn't ask the people at the store about it. Associates should know enough about the product, if not be well versed in trying to go to the apple site to view reviews about this thing as well as anything Apple related. Bought the mouse knowing well that it will work great on my MacBook Pro Retina 13.3" (early 2015) and no issues whatsoever. The gestures on the mouse worked great. I have even attempted to connect it to my gaming laptop (ASUS g73jw) and even works great on it. So the people that have given this thing any low review apparently haven't done anything to review before their purchase. Congrats to them on not researching their stuff before buying! If anything guys, it is a good buy but do keep in mind, it is aesthetics, you DON'T have to have this item for your Mac at all. You can use a normal 10 dollar clearance logitech mouse and it will work just fine if you don't want to spend a "ton" of money.

    Nearly perfect with one MAJOR flaw

    Magic Mouse 2 represents a significant upgrade from its predecessor. The best way to describe the magic mouse 2 is that it's like using a traditional mouse combined with a trackpad thanks to its touch sensitive surface - this creates the opportunity for very useful navigation gestures. The mouse is responsive and performs well. One MAJOR misstep - and a very surprising one given Apple's obsession with design and simplicity - is the absurd placement of the lighting port used for charging - it's located literally smack-dab on the bottom surface of the mouse. In other words, you cannot charge and use the mouse simultaneously. Is this a deal-breaker? No, not at all....but it is a bit perplexing and ultimately downgrades an otherwise nearly perfect device.

    I know it's priced in the higher range for a mouse, but I love how I can perform the gestures on the mouse itself. The scrolling is better than any scroll wheel and gestures are fast and responsive. I also love the long battery life and only have to charge it once a month or so on a single charge. I use it everyday and even though the touch pad on a MacBook Pro works well, I like the comfort of the mouse. Using the mouse been a big help with preventing carpal tunnel from flaring up since I'm able to keep my wrist straight instead of angled on the track pad. I would recommend getting this one over the previous model since it seems to track better without dragging the mouse all over for it to work and all you need to charge it is your iPhone cable.

    Apple - Magic Mouse 2 - Love it!

    Apple did a great job with this mouse. I love the fact that you can recharge the mouse with the lighting cable (you can easily see the amount of charge in the mouse or Apple Keyboard by simply clicking on the Bluetooth icon up in the status bar, and then clicking on the mouse or the keyboard). Features wise, this is really no different than the original magic mouse (which is fine by me). But this second generation is able to move more smoothly over a greater variety of surfaces (read: no mouse-pad) and is more sensitive for fine detail work. Most importantly the rechargeable battery is unbelievable. I bought the mouse on September 04. Today is September 14. I haven't changed the mouse one time and I'm at 70%. I use it 5-6 days a week for the majority of a work day and I don't turn it off. It's unbelievable. I'm seriously considering the rechargeable keyboard now.

    When I bought this, it was because of a recommendation from a friend. They said that their mouse had lasted them 6 years and still works great. In my experience, the first week was at times frustrating because I wasn't used to the default sensitivity that the mouse has. Once I changed some of the settings and preferences with the mouse my experience with it has been great! I now find it much easier when writing documents and using excel files. The mouse itself is small and connects via bluetooth so it doesn't use any of the ports on the computer or laptop. Overall would recommend, especially once you change the settings and preferences to optimize your performance with it.

    Not worth it

    I recently purchased a new MacBook Pro, and I love it. The only problem is that the new machine only has USB Type-C ports and no standard USB ports, which isn't a major issue for me. The only problem is that my old wireless mouse connects via the standard USB port. I decided to purchase the Apple Magic 2 mouse to utilize bluetooth technology instead of having to use a USB adapter for my old mouse. However the charging cable for this mouse connects only to a standard USB which my new MacBook doesn't even have, so the adapter is still necessary to charge the mouse. If Apple only want to have USB type-C ports on their new machines they should make sure their own products actually connect instead of having to buy a pricey adapter to make it work!

    Excellent Mouse - takes some practice though

    I bought the Magic Mouse 2 recently. It performs similar functions as a Microsoft Mouse, but in different ways. It takes some practice to figure out how to use it. The user manual offers limited help. However, I'll probably discover that it has many capabilities as I learn how to use it. The mouse has a light sensor on the bottom. It will not work on some surfaces. Each Best Buy sales representative I consulted suggested that I use a mousepad as a solution. This works. The Magic Mouse is small. People with large hands may find it uncomfortable to use. Some third party vendors offer larger mice that are compatible with Apple computers. The Magic Mouse appears to be durable; it has a metal base. I expect to use it for a long time.

    I purchased this product as open box. It came sealed and brand new. The magic mouse has a switch underneath which I moved to the on position. Within a few seconds, it was connected via blue tooth (ensure the blue tooth is set on the computer to "see" other devices). It will connect quickly simply by clicking the mouse once you switch it on. I have yet to need to charge it - and I use it regularly. I will note I have not figured out how to use the connector cable, but also haven't had the time to read the manual! I am a faithful Best Buy customer and purchased numerous items as open box (including apple pen) and have yet to be disappointed. I love the options to receive further discounts off a sale price for open boxed items.

    Pricey Mouse - Pradigm shift

    At $80 MSRP this is a very pricey mouse. Build quality is typical Apple however, very very sleek and asthetically pleasing. The mouse has a high quality feel to it as you would expect from Apple. The mouse does require you to change your typical mousing habbits though. If you try to hold this mouse the same way you would hold a more traditional (and larger) mouse you will not like the feel and will most likely end up with your fingers fatiguing very quickly. Rather than grabbing the mouse and manhandling it like most are accostomed to with a larger PC mouse, you just lay your hand across the mouse lightly and glide it around using light finger touches to activate gestures. If your willing to adapt to it, this is a great mouse. If you are stuck in your old ways of mousing, you will hate it.

    Very good design, but not perfect

    Let me start by saying that this is one of the best and most reliable navigation devices I have ever used. That being said there is on ergonomic problem with the design that I find kind of annoying. In order to scroll up - down, or left - right you simply move one finger across the top of the mouse. For most applications that is fine, but in apps like Google Maps, where scroll controls zoom I find myself often scrolling way in or way out when I don't mean to. The issue is that if you don't hold your finger up and off of the mouse any slight movement will be interpreted as scrolling. This isn't a deal breaker, it just means your finger might get tired if you have to use an app like Google Maps a lot. Other than that, it is really good. Very accurate, holds a charge for a long time. Pairs beautifully with Apple products.

    Get ready for a cramped hand

    I am very pleased with my new MackBook Pro, but the Magic Mouse needs to be redesigned. First of all, it's slippery. So, it's hard to grip. Second, it's thin. So, it's hard to grip. Third it has sharp edges that cut into my ring finger when I try to grip it like a standard mouse. Forth, if I grip it with my little finger my hand cramps. So, now I have a $70 mouse that I don't use. My old wireless Windows mouse works but it takes up one of the two USB ports. Maybe I will see if I can return the Magic Mouse and get a more user friendly bluetooth mouse.

    This mouse works exactly like you think it would for being an Apple magic mouse. I'd really brag on its charging capability- I charged it for a few hours the first day and have not needed to plug it in since (a month later and I still have 50% battery at 2-3 hours average daily use.) Bluetooth connection is without a hiccup and easy to initiate (just plug it in to charge.) Function is intuitive and unique features such as a few gesture controls exist. My only negative to this mouse is the price. At $40-50, this item would be beyond worth it. At $80, one starts to question, "Did I really shell out that much cash for a mouse??" (But yes, of course I did.) I would also be interested to see if the mouse ever gets updated with a version of force touch like the track pad now has.

    I wanted a mouse to use with my MacBook Pro for the times that I wanted to do a lot of word editing and not always use the trackpad. I had a logitech wireless mouse that I used on my old PC laptop and attempted to use it with the MacBook, but it was terrible. Had been looking into the magic mouse for some time and decided to just pick one up. Connecting it was pretty much flawless. Turned the MacBook on and then turned the mouse on, paired instantly. Gestures are smooth also. The only complaint that I have is that sometimes the mouse doesn't scroll. It's only happened a few times while looking through a word document, and I'm not sure if it's an actual con or maybe I'm just got putting enough pressure for it to pick up to scroll up/down. But overall it's pretty solid and has great battery life.

    I genuinely feel that this Apple mouse is the best in the business. It can be set up with an amazing number of gestures and is like having a mouse, trackball, and trackpad all in one. The best improvement is RECHARGEABLE batteries! The older Magic Mouse took Double-A batteries and I had to buy them in bulk because it was such a battery hog. This mouse plugs in with the same lightning cable (included with mouse) that charges pretty much every Apple mobile device. The only downside is that the port for charging is on the bottom of the mouse, meaning it has to lay there, completely useless like a turtle on its back, while charging. Fortunately, it goes for weeks on a single charge, and it takes very little time to charge it to a usable level, and you can always top it off later.

    Works flawlessly, scrolls the whole length

    I bought this to supplement my magic keyboard and magic trackpad. Usually my workflow is more efficient with a mouse instead of a trackpad, and the magic mouse is the perfect compliment for my MacBook Pro. The scrolling actually works all the way down from top to bottom of the surface, which is nice. The only downfall is that the lightning port to charge is on the bottom of the mouse-- this is a widely known design flaw for Apple, so I am not deducting a star for this. Do your research folks! This isn't a huge deal to me because I also have other means of using my computer, and I typically don't forget to plug it in every couple weeks when I am done working.

    Sleek, attractive and totally Apple

    When I upgraded my desktop to the El Capitan operating system my beloved vertical mouse no longer worked. I had to match Apple to Apple. That meant either this mouse or a track pad. To my mind, the mouse is easier to operate than the track pad. It's probably the "prettiest" mouse out there - sleek and attractive. I do find that you have to hit the sweet spot for any action to occur. Since there is no obvious "button," this can sometimes be difficult, especially when, for my hand at least, the most comfortable resting position leaves my fingers just shy of the sweet spot. Oh, then there is the fact that the mouse comes in white, or white. I would prefer to have black. But, until Anker figures out how to adopt its vertical mouse so that it can be used with Apple computers loaded with El Capitan, I'll be using this one.

    Far superior to the last iteration

    These latest iterations of the Apple Mouse and Keyboard are great upgrades. I like that they opted to use rechargeable batteries, via a lightning port; however, I will say, like other posters have also suggested, the location of the charging port could have been better thought out. It's on the bottom, so the mouse is useless while it's charging. But, it's a small inconvenience, and nothing a little forethought doesn't fix. I like that gestures are supported on this mouse, so I can scroll from app to app with a swipe of my finger. All in all, it's a great product, and if it weren't for the charging port location, I would have given the mouse a perfect 5-star rating.

    This is by far the most expensive mouse I've ever owned. As a result, I've put off this purchase for quite a while. I've owned a couple of the previous generation Magic Mouse as well as the original Apple wireless mouse. I really like the "rechargeable" feature of the generation 2. Hopefully, that will prevent an AA cell battery from leaking and destroying the mouse. So, even considering the price, I still have to give it 5 stars. It offers the best possible control and is easily the best input device I've used. My advice is this: You know you're going to get it eventually so just go ahead and buy it!
