    Scroll Ball is Bad!

    I loved using the Mighty Mouse! It's a great concept. However, until Apple get the scroll ball right you'd best stay away from it. I had to clean mine every month as it would just stop scrolling up. Alas, I must have cleaned it once too often as it has now stopped working entirely. I'll wait for the improved model before buying one again!

    Great Mouse

    Was a bit wary of getting the mouse due to all the negative comments but need not have worried. Basically another great Apple product! The right and left click works accurately and the scroll ball is superb, I am planning to get the wireless version at a later stage

    worst mouse ever!

    I've been through 2 now, and I'm fed up and can't be bothered taking it back to get another one. The scroll button is the main problem, it quickly becomes faulty/stuck and works when it wants to. The mouse also makes the pointer on the screen jumpy, so one moment you're at the bottom of the screen, then without moving the mouse you're at the top of the screen. Also depending on how you place your hand, it is very easy to click into the Dashboard without even meaning to. The mouse came with my imac (which wan't cheap) so I perservered, but really this product is a let down for Apple. It's plain nasty..don't bother.
    I gave it one star because the ideas were good but the product isn't.

    It's a good mouse! For clean hand...

    I've been using mighty mouse about 3 yrs now and it still work perfectly. I use it on both pc & mac for some reasons, just plug out and plug in between them. (Although Windows will auto install the driver for first time). Since many ppl complain about the scroll button, I have to say that I have no problem at all, my hand does not sweat so the scroll button doesn't pick up grim when using. All u have to do is keep your work area (and your hand) clean. One thing it lacks of is you can't make both buttons click simultaneously. Since it uses touch sensor beneath the shell as button, it only detects either LEFT or RIGHT click. (clicking both will treated as LEFT click only) You'll know when playing minesweeper in Windows. Perhaps newer version will have this solved? Since Apple pioneered in multi-touch technology.

    Mighty Mouse Recall

    This product should be recalled. It's apparently too complex. Mine wouldn't scroll up after about two weeks. The cord is about 1 ft long. Too short. Useless. I have to buy another brand.

    The Mighty Failure.

    Only thing mighty this little mouse brought was disappointment.
    To cost so much one would expect the best out of it,
    but sadly after just 3 days of usage the scrolling ball
    died on me.

    Don't waste your money on this mouse.
    There are much better ones out there.

    Apple product designers please read this!

    I love this mouse. However, I'm anticipating problems with the poorly designed (but brilliant while it's working!) scroll wheel. The ball could be slightly bigger for easy of use (or replaced with another technology?)

    Another problem I've had which doesn't get much mention in other reviews is the overly sensitive buttons on top. I couldn't figure out how to right click for a while until I realised that the tiny pressure of my index finger was causing a left click even though I was only pressing down on the right side! I like to rest the weight of my fingers on the mouse and not need to lift my other finger. I had a similar problem when trying to use the side buttons, if I was touching anywhere else it sometimes didn't work.

    The mouse squeaks when I click. (sounds funny, but disturbing in a quiet environment)

    Also I have large hands and although it is reasonably comfortable, I'd like to see an optional larger version. This would also make it easier to use all the buttons.

    As it is, I would not recommend this product to anyone. No one wants to pay top dollar for a product that could be great if it actually worked the way it was intended to and was reliable.

    Please redesign this otherwise brilliant product.

    A disposable mouse?!!

    Track ball constantly stops scrolling after a while (gets blocked up with gunk). Already taken two back under warranty. Mouse isn't accessible for home repairs and other remedies suggested only work for a while. Got better things to do. Build a product that works Apple.

    Short Life Span

    How disappointing - I have had 3 mighty mouses now with my three different computer purchases - the latest being the intel-based iMac with the new and improved mighty mouse.

    ALL THREE mighty mouses have within 6 months of use shown the exact same symptoms - the downward scroll function ceases to work. This is incredibly frustrating, especially when you follow every single tutorial online to clean the track ball and none of them work.

    This has happened to all three mice. I won't be purchasing or using another, regardless if another new computer comes with one or not. In this respect, the microsoft mice win hands down - they may not move diagonally, but they sure last a helluva long time.

    Mighty Mouse, Schmighty Mouse

    We have been through 2 of these mice in less than a year. Sure you can sometimes clean them and get them to work when the rollerball sticks, but it obviously a design fault...the ball is too small and susceptible to dirt/dust. In my opinion this is the only fault of the mouse, other wise its great.


    I will be taking ours back and buying a Logitech one.

    Consider before buying

    Bought this beauty back home today and found out that the cable length is somewhat quite short, works fine on my mac book but very limited cable length is a frustration when you need the extra length to make ever move swiftly.

    Thought if I bought this it will save me some cash and prolong my battery usage when I am on the move, but in the end what I got was short cable length.

    A Clear blot on apple's Image

    Very good in design but very very very poor in handling and durability.

    Just after 3 months... scroll ball has stoped working. There is no way to clean or repair it.

    I can't believe they have not withdrawn it from sale

    Words can not describe the sheer frustration and anger i feel towards this product, 10 months and 3 mice later and the track ball has failed again each time i have to wait 5-7 working days for it t be replaced resulting in me having a lovely $3000 paperweight (iMac) sitting on my desk, i feel like i need to buy a spare one so i have one to use when it is in being serviced, i don't care about a 360 scroll i would rather a 180 wheel that work for more than 3 months at a time. will think very long and hard before purchasing another apple product again if this is the quality of what is being offered now

    Quite Happy

    I purchased this Mighty Mouse when I purchased my MacBook Pro. I'm very happy with the mouse and it has all the functions that I need to get things down. May take a little time to get used to for some people, however, I soon got used to it.

    Another quality product from Apple!

    Buy the Wireless Version

    I have several of these all quickly put back in the box and replaced by the wireless mouse, the main problem i have is that the cable is too short for working on larger screens (by that I mean you run out of cable if you are dragging before you run out of screen width) and secondly and most annoyingly the cable is the perfect width to fit snugly under the curved front of the mouse body where it prevents you clicking, a most frustrating problem particularly when editing or working in fine detail.

    The wireless version on the other hand is unaffected by either of these issues and suits my purposes admirably.

    Scroll wheel? What scroll wheel?

    I'm already onto my second Mighty Mouse in six months and I'm about to return it for a third. The scroll wheel on this mouse can barely be considered functional — regardless of how clean one keeps their paws this flimsy little ball mechanism will get clogged with dust and stop working. It can't be properly cleaned and it appears that even oxygen particles will hinder its functionality.

    Ratty Mouse

    I have two mice, and both have the same failing. The scroller stops working after a few months. DON'T BUY THIS!

    Should've spent the money on a ham

    I demo'd this mouse in an Apple store in the Sydney CBD and I loved it. So I bought one. When I took it home, I was like "Yes, it looks so sexy" but only after 20 days of using it. I have realised this mouse was a ripoff. For example when you play Halo, you need your whole hand on the mouse and the two fingers in front. When you try to left click, guess what? It right clicks. Making me throw a grenade and run into it. Definitely do not buy this. You are better off spending this money on a ham or a pack of smokes.

    MMMMMM =/

    Well, I've had my mighty mouse since the first day that the new aluminum imac was released (in October) and it has been pretty good apart from time to time when the Trackball has a mind of its own! That can be pretty annoying, but apart from that it's fine!
