    SCROLL BALL BROKEN AFTER 1 MONTH

    I loved this mouse from day 1, but exactly as many people on internet warn, the scroll ball stopped working today - I can't scroll down any more. Going to the shop tomorrow to do a warranty claim ... I don't think they'll give me a refund, but if they do, I'm buying something else. Why did you make this mouse so unreliable, Apple? Didn't you get enough feedback from users to fix this ??? It doesn't suit a company like you, to sell such a cr... product!

    Looks good, but...

    I've owned my iMac now for just under 3 weeks, and I've REALLY tried to like the mouse that came with it, but...

    The right mouse button is incredibly unreliable. I could live with this, annoying as it was (I'm a reformed Windows user, and I'm VERY used to right-clicking to get things done), but what I couldn't live with is when the mouse ball stopped scrolling up (it'd still scroll down). So, I've had to steal the Logitech cordless from my old DELL, and the PC users are just gonna have to put up with a mouse that doesn't work properly.

    Very disappointing (in fact, the ONLY negative experience I've had with the iMac so far!).

    Might Moose

    The design is nice but the mechanical scroll ball system is problematic after a short time of use. Cleaning the scroll ball is only a short term fix. They should design it with an internal laser to sense movement of the scroll ball which would eliminate the mechanical problems that occur with use.

    Achilles scroll wheel...

    Only around 1-2 months before it began to get sticky. Never experienced such bad performance from such an expensive mouse. Really needs improvement to be brought up to Apple's usual standard.

    just died

    Peeve #1: I bought this mice on the 23 Nov, after moderate use, it died within less than 16 days of usage. i mean nothing worked. it was not detected on my mac mini or any other computer i have! This is simply not acceptable!

    Peeve #2: it makes a squeaky noise!!! randomly at times and freaking me out!

    Apple, your macs might be great but your mice needs serious reworking short of an overhaul!

    worst thing apple has made...

    this has got to be the worst thing apple have made. i have gone through two of these now as the scroll wheel breaks just after a few months.
    the rest of it seems ok but its the scroll i want.
    DO NOT BUY. :(

    Thousands can't be wrong!

    Thousands can't be wrong: DO NOT BUY IT!!

    Like pretty much everyone else - my "Mighty" Mouse stopped scrolling down after about 1 year.

    I have tried every single method to clean the rodent, with no success.

    I think it is absolutely appalling that Apple knowingly flog such a poor product to its loyal customers.

    Great little mouse

    I've had this mouse for 9 months, replacing a PC type mouse. It's terrific. I especially like the the fact that you don't have to use massive amounts of pressure to use the scroll button and side-clicks. Goodbye RSI.

    Frustrating...

    I never write reviews, but I just had to let people know how bad this product is. I have been buying Apple products for years but this is by far the worst I have ever laid my hands on.

    The wheel / middle button is, for starters, too easy to press by accident. The scroll function is at times unresponsive and on mine, has stopped working altogether!

    The side buttons are completely useless. They take a bit of getting used to, but even when you think you have mastered it, you will end up bringing up a function at the wrong time.

    In one word, I would describe this mouse as frustrating.
    It looks good beside your MAC on a nice clean desk, but after that, is pretty much useless. And before I forget, it does not work well on a lot of surfaces... so you will be back to using a mouse mat! There are much better 3rd party products on the market. Avoid this at all costs! Apple, get your act together... this mouse is awful.

    Great the short time they work!!!

    Great mouse but I've had three so far in two years. the scroll ball works a treat for 6 months then give up the ghost very quickly. Plus the cable is ridiculously short for any use you might want to put it too.

    so why have i bought three? design looks, and the desire for a scrolling mouse, but i would not recomend these to anyone. Plus the apple shop staff get very funny when you mention the quality in the shop.

    DON'T BUY!!

    Scroll-ball is great - while it lasts

    The best feature is the scroll-ball, while it works. But it soon clogs and stops working.

    The "one button masquerading as two" takes some getting used to - you have to lift up your left finger when right-clicking.

    And I have to disable the side buttons, as they activate too often by accident.

    A poorly executed design. Which is a shame, as the scroll-ball is fantastic while it works.

    Scrolling nipple useless

    A good mouse, starting to catch up with a pc mouse (that have had left /right click and centre scrolling for years now), but this nipple scroll is useless after a few months and with no way of opening to clean it, the best you can do is rub it with a lint free cloth to lift off some of the grease.As far as design goes this has to rate as very poor.

    Style over substance

    I bought a 20" imac this year and after 5 months the mouse will not scroll. Seems like everyone knows this but Apple. Other than the HUGE issue with breaking after a few months, it tracks well and looks the part.

    Don't buy this

    After singing the praises of Apple products for years I find myself confronted by the problem that arises when hype gets the better of reason. This mouse is a total failure. The persistent scroll ball jamming is a nightmare, always happening at the worst times in the middle of important projects. This is a total recall case really. Tiny, sensitive scroll balls just don't work, give me an old IBM brick of a mouse over this any day! Try scrolling through Aperture library with an ineffective scroll button - dreadful!

    Scroll wheel woes

    Although this is a comfortable mouse to use, I endorse all previous comments regarding the scroll wheel. Where normally I would give it three or even four stars, I'm giving it the minimum in order to bring down the overall average. Apple should have addressed this design fault or withdrawn the product.

    Scrolling problems?

    I have read about this scrolling problem with this mouse because this same problem happened to me too.
    I noticed that someone gave us an important advice to clean that little scrolling device.
    I cleaned it and now my mouse works like a dream.
    Beautiful device, I must say. It's like every other device that Apple does, works beautifully and it's an enjoy to handle.

    Is this the best mouse ever?

    This is the most ergonomic mouse I have ever used. It feel so good in the hand and I have spent many hours just touching it with love in my eyes. If the little ball on top stops working wipe it with a cloth. A small price to pay for such a thing of beauty.
