    Homerun device - improved over Magic Mouse 1

    Posted
    Ohio
    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    There are a few things I love about this mouse. 1) It now is rechargeable via lightning cable and requires no batteries. In the alkaline battery version the batteries lasted forever, but it is still nice to know that essentially it is impossible to run out of power if you plug in the mouse occasionally. 2) The touch surface is incredibly responsive. In what could easily turn into a disaster, the design of the touch interface really delivers good tracking clarity and gesture control. After just a few hours of use all of the commands seem second nature. 3) Design. Some functionality is lost in the fact that there are not two physical buttons (i.e. this is not a great gaming mouse), but it is all made up for in style. Of course Apple products value form over function and this is no different. the sleek design was so clean that it essentially looks identical to the Magic Mouse 1. A few considerations for this mouse are notable. Firstly, if you want to be able to right click with the mouse, you need to enable the function in the settings of your Mac. Does anyone really use this mouse without the right click enabled? Since it is turned off by default I could see someone thinking that since there is only one huge physical button that it might not have the ability to right-click... which would be frustrating. Some gestures are annoying. Again, the ones that are intuitive are quite helpful, but some of them are just overboard and need to be disabled. Again, I could see this being frustrating to a new user or a user with limited knowledge. Lastly, it is pricey - my Magic Mouse one lasted for years and years and still works perfectly. I would like to think that this mouse will be the same. With an item that takes day to day use and abuse I could see that some might be hesitant to spend $70 on a mouse.

    I wanted a iMac but wasn't ready to pay the iMac price O_o, so instead I decided to be creative and create my own iMac experience. I purchased the Apple Magic mouse and I am in love with it! It is so compact and has a clean modern look to it! I wish I was able to use this mouse at work, but we have standard company equipment (rolls eyes). It keeps a charge too! I've had it for about a little over three weeks and I have not had to recharge it. Great purchase! Perhaps when Apple gets more innovative and have more competitive prices, I'll switch out my iMac set up with MacBook Pro for an actual iMac :) FYI I have a Macbook Pro and also purchased the following items for my iMac set up (which also allows for dual monitors): Apple - Magic Keyboard - Silver Apple - Magic Mouse 2 - Silver Insignia™ - 6' HDDB15 Male-to-Male PC Monitor Cable - Black j5create - SuperSpeed USB 3.0 to VGA External Video Adapter - White AOC - i2779vh 27" IPS LED FHD Monitor - Black/silver

    Incredible Battery Life and Quick for Wireless!

    As I'm sure many of you have read, Apple's biggest design flaw with the Magic Mouse seems to be that the charging port is on the bottom of the mouse, meaning that when you are charging the mouse, you cannot simultaneously use it. I thought that would be a big enough drawback for me to return the mouse, but after using it comfortably for several months, I greatly believe that the battery life and the responsiveness to movements and clicks with the Magic Mouse, albeit being a wireless mouse, greatly outweigh the charging issue! I make sure to have the mouse turned "off" when not in use, and I honestly cannot remember the last time I have had to charge it (other than the 1st day buying and using it)! I was skeptical about Apple's description that "A full charge takes about two hours and lasts two months. Two minutes of juice is enough for a full day as well", but I can happily say that I am now a believer. I have not had any issues regarding the mouse thus far and believe that they have corrected other issues that have been brought up by Magic Mouse gen.1 users. I am very satisfied with my purchase, and I would highly recommend for other wireless mouse users who love pairing Apple products together too!

    Great MacBook Accessory

    I thought the trackpad on my MacBook was all I needed for productivity. However after finally pushing myself to invest in the Magic Mouse 2 I couldn't be happier. The mouse saves me from relying on keyboard shortcuts and using 2 hands to crop and paste text, and photos for the layout of documents I produce weekly. I love that the Magic Mouse 2 works on virtually any surface that it can glide on, and the addition of the long lasting rechargeable battery makes upgrading from the 1st gen Magic Mouse much more worthwhile. The Mouse feels much more sturdy without the removable back and batteries, leading to an overall more premium feel and I have no issue with the Lightning charging port being located on the bottom of the mouse. You honestly won't spend much time recharging the mouse for the charging port to be an issue. Considering the price, I would have liked for Apple to have made the profile of the mouse slimmer, similar to Logitech's ultra slim touch mouse. However nothing compares to white sleek, shiny glass exterior and Apple logo on the Magic Mouse 2. It looks beautiful resting next to my 12" gold MacBook. I would recommend the mouse to anyone using any iteration of MacBook lineup, as it does help to increase productivity. This is an Apple accessory with amazing functionality while remaining simple to use.

    I read reviews from this board, apple's, all over. Everyone complaining about where you plug in the wire to charge this mouse. YES, it is a bit awkward at first. You literally plug in, perpendicular to the bottom of the unit. This causes the unit to not lay flat while charging. "I can't use my mouse while charging!" Ummm, you're not supposed to use anything while it's charging, period... get over it. "There are other mice that allow you to use it while charging... and they're $40 cheaper!" OMG go buy one, quick. I'll stick with my magic mouse. My mouse kinda props up like a picture frame on a desk displaying it's beautiful elegance while it charges it's super long lasting battery. Do I care I can't use the mouse for the couple hours while it charges? No. The mouse is not supposed to be the best mouse on the market... while it's charging. How does it perform while it's on, being used? It's perfect. Smooth, perfect tracking,. Clicks are "ergonomically correct". Have been using it for a couple of months and have never lost connection once. I use it for 10-12 hours daily. What do I do while it's charging? Sleep, eat, play with my son, read a good book, take a walk, exercise.... not in that order. I can survive with Apple's odd decision to put the port on the bottom of the unit.

    I purchased the Magic Mouse 2 a little after getting my MacBook Pro and I'm really glad I made the purchase. I had a Logitech mouse I used with my PC but it was wearing out and was too bulky. The Magic Mouse 2 fits the shape of my hand so naturally. The Magic Mouse 2 is also fairly small compared to a regular computer mouse--not nearly as bulky and doesn't take up nearly as much space. A final plus for the mouse? It's a small thing but the Magic Mouse does NOT require an USB adapter like a regular computer mouse. You use a cord to plug the Magic Mouse 2 in when you first use it and, after a minute or two, you unplug it and, from then on, you never have to plug it in again--wireless pairing! It's a small thing, as I said, but having that free USB port can really be the difference between extreme annoyance and smooth sailing. The ONLY thing this mouse does not offer is right-click ability but, from what I understand, you can configure it in settings to do so. I would absolutely recommend this mouse. Other companies should create computer mice more like the Magic Mouse 2!

    This mouse has gotten a lot of bad reviews on it but I wanted an Apple mouse to go with my Apple laptop so I purchased it anyway to try it and I'm glad that I did! At first it takes a little getting use to because it does operate differently from a normal mouse. But once you get the hang of it it's pretty neat. There is no scroll wheel so you just swipe with your finger instead (so easy!). There is still left click and right click. You tap it to make what you're reading larger or smaller, side swipe it to change pages. The battery life is wonderful! I've had mine since mid November (almost a month now) and have not had to recharge it yet. Yes one downfall is the charging port is underneath the mouse but you still have your computer's trackpad to use until your Apple Magic Mouse 2 is ready to go again for use. If you're into change then give this mouse a try and give it a real chance, if you love Apple products I think you'll learn to love this mouse to!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    Out of the box this mouse paired up smoothly with my MacBook Air and is working perfectly. The reason for purchase was I was curious about the product and wanted to see how it works with other Apple products I have (which I have yet to test) and with all the reading and stuff i need to do for school I wanted to see if I liked the feel better than scrolling with the trackpad and I must say I am way impressed with the feel and responsiveness of this magic mouse! I like doing the air play to Apple tv and being able to scroll through emails and things I need to read and am excited to see how it works with doing my school work. It was a spontaneous purchase and just trying to see what it is all about. So far so good and I am way impressed with this spontaneous purchase and works very well!

    The Magic Mouse 2 works great on my MacBook Air. The pairing process is super easy and the connection stays strong without any interruption. The battery lasts a very long time. So far I've used it about 10 times, in 2+ hour increments, and the battery loses maybe 1 or 2 percent in each session. The finger gestures are awesome since they're the same as the gestures on the MacBook's trackpad. This Apple brand mouse works flawlessly with Apple computer's. I kept that in mind when I bought an external mouse especially since cheaper mouse's (or mice for the grammar police) can result in poor connectivity & poor results. In addition other brand mice won't have the unique gestures that Apple has with its products.

    The Mouse is a bit pricey, but it's made by Apple - so that should go without saying. I didn't think I would go one way or another with this mouse. I just thought it would go nice with my Macbook Pro. But I was happily surprised with its quality and easy of setup and use. It's very accurate and there are some cool things you can do on this mouse that you can't with others. I used to have a Microsoft Mouse which was there best one but it would make some weird noise when you scroll to let you know you were scrolling. This one doesn't and it's super smooth. You can also swipe left, right, up, and down for different functions. This comes in handy, especially with browsing on the internet. Overall, it's a good product and worth getting if you have an apple computer.

    I liked my Magic Mouse, especially when using it with Magic Preferences, but I was tired of replacing the batteries and went to Best Buy looking for a replacement. The sales person told me about the new Magic Mouse 2, which has a battery built-in and is rechargeable with a USB lightning cable, so I bought it. It charges quite fast and doesn't need it too often. it works great, although you need OSX 10.11 El Capitan or later to take advantage of all its features: left & right Click, Scroll up, down left, and right, Zoom, Swipe between pages, full-screen apps & double tap for Mission Control -- not as many as with Magic preferences which does not work with this new product, but more than enough for me. Only drawback was the cost, but sure beats buying batteries!

    Terrific Apple Magic Mouse 2

    I had the first generation of the Magic Mouse for many years. The last one failed a few months ago. I searched online to look for product information, pricing, and convenient store location. I was happy to find there is a new generation of the Magic Mouse and that this one does not take batteries, charges using the same cord as my iPhone, and, with one overnight charging session, I can use the Magic Mouse 2 for a week before I need to charge it again. While looking online, I saw there was no price difference between the Apple Store and Best Buy and, since Best Buy is very close to my home, I went there to purchase the Magic Mouse 2. The store reps were very helpful, as usual. I love my new Magic Mouse 2. It is great to use.
