    Love it!

    Best mouse I've ever had, the only problem is that the scroll-ball stops working every so often and need cleaning.

    it's pretty cool looking, I guess

    it's cool looking.
    the side buttons work really well.
    it still functions for the most part.

    the scroller ball quit working after the 2nd day I had it.
    the cord is extremely short.
    it took me about 2 years to figure out how to activate the right click.

    pretty good, but I'd like to see a different kind of scroller ball that can stand the dirt and oil of human fingers, and is easier to clean. it looks like a bar of soap and matches my computer and keyboard. I like it, but I know apple can do better for the price.

    Flimsy, overpriced junk

    The scroll ball worked for about a month. For the price, this should win some sort of award for the lowest possible value for money.

    not very mighty

    this is only subjected to home use the scroll ball stopped working properly after 3 months. Apple replaced it. After 6 months the scroll ball started playing up - now its broken again. Unfortunately, its style over durability. Larger scroll ball required

    Worst Apple Product (From an Apple Specialist)

    I work at an Apple Reseller, and in my experience, this is by far the worst Apple product ever. I have used several through years and none has worked good enough. On our store, this is the ONLY product I just CAN'T recommend, and its painful, since I love everything Apple. Do yourself a favor and don't invest on this product.

    I'd rather have real mice!

    This is THE most irritating product I've ever used. It's so frustrating, when this product is working well - it works like a dream, but when it's working badly - you want to throw it out of the window. The little scroll wheel simply stops working when it's dirty. (and I'm not talking about extreme dirt - I'm in a very clean design studio with clean hands!).
    Seems as though apple have neglected the function for the style in this product, and i am a huge mac fan ordinarily. Maybe it's more frustrating because when it works well, it's great.
    Either way, it's simply unforgivable.
    Apple tried to re-invent the 'scroll' wheel that's been doing fine for a decade! Please sort this issue. Either dump the little ball, or give us a way to clean it. Until then, I'd stay well away!

    the only apple product i hate

    there seems to be a lot of complaints about the scroll ball, which is kind of funny. it's the main feature in this mouse that i enjoy, but seems to be the worst at the same time. My main issue with this thing is that the cursor doesn't move smoothly across the screen. like i move it across the desk smoothly but the cursor on the screen doesn't move at a constant speed. i know this is something to do with the software and the cursor acceleration but it's just terrible. i tried it with a standard non-apple mouse and it was the same way so... yeah maybe it's more of a software issue. i also find the mouse just uncomfortable. like yeah it's pretty and goes nicely with apple's simplistic styling approach, but i think this is an area where that got in the way. i'm used to a razer lachesis too, though, which is beautiful. also there's an awful lot of friction between the mouse and the desk, even with a mousepad. it's weird, everything apple is great, i even love the keyboard, but they really dropped the ball on this mouse. i gave it 2 stars though because of the scroll ball innovation which is a wonderful concept, but not implemented very well

    This Rocks

    So many complaints about this great product. You have to keep it clean. Had mine for 2 years now. If the ball doesn't work, I simply turn it upside down on my mouse pad and rub it in all directions a few times. Works fine.

    Easy to use. Great product.

    Do you guys wash your hands?

    First off, I keep my apple equipment as clean as possible at all times. Guess what? I love my mighty mouse. Never had a problem with the scroll bar. Try washing your hands before you use it because whether you believe it or not, gunk builds up. Hope this helps.

    Looks nice, the wheel function is ok, due to the slow acceleration.
    The movement precision is fairly decent.
    However the buttons feel extremely cheap and require nominal force in comparison with other mice on the market. This makes using this mouse quite tedious if you have used a decent mouse before, especially for Photoshop, or Music Production editing.
    I bought a Logitech MX Revolution a few weeks after for almost the same price, the difference felt like 10 years in the future.

    Everything Apple usually makes is outstanding, this I feel warranted a bad criticism on the grounds that there IS better out there for the same price, and Apple have the ability to deliver such a product!

    C-mon, have a good educated look at the competition and give us a sexier Apple mouse!

    dirty mouse

    This mouse is not functionally versatile, and it broke down of 7 month of sparse use.

    Avoid avoid avoid!!

    It is a sleek mouse with a comfortable design but incredibly unreliable. Not only does it stutter on many surfaces (the cursor jumps across the screen), the underside is also incredibly prone to scratches.

    Worst of all, the scroll wheel. It stops working oh so often. Before anyone points out user fault, I have NEVER dropped or hit the mouse against anything hard. The wheel just stops working and refuses to scroll in one or more direction, after 'persuasive methods' it comes back.

    Too short

    This mouse is nice and all, but the cord is ridiculously short. You'll have to have an extension if you want to use it on the Macbook Pro. I guess Apple is trying to save copper and cut an extra foot off the cable. Get the wireless model instead and save yourself the trouble of an extension.

    Do Not Buy

    Looks good and it's a cool design. But you cannot clean the "Innovative Scroll Ball and button" without destroying the mouse. The "Force-sensing side buttons" click constantly when you do not want them to. I had to disable them. Almost any mouse is probably better than this. I just trashed mine and am using a seven year old Microsoft mouse.

    Easily Fixed

    To fix the scroll ball get a hand wipe and place it on top off the ball, move it around in a circle in till it becomes a lighter gray, then just dry it with some toilet paper. It gives a nice response but i s a bit expensive, and the pressure needed for a click is just right.

    Dear Apple,

    While a good product in some aspects, the Mighty Mouse fails in its most important function as a MOUSE: it fails to scroll vertically (!!!!!!!!!)

    How did this product pass user-testing? Why are you not improving this product already? How can you include a failed product as a standard item shipped with most iMacs and MacPros?

    I am not sure you realize this product is a HUGE INCONVENIENCE for most users.

    OK but

    The mouse works well but why is the cord so short????? With the macbook having the USB ports on the left and being right handed the cord constantly gets caught where the screen and body meet in the back. The only other option is to lay it over the keypad which is not a good solution. Had to buy and extension to use it, not good.

    Mouse needs to be replaced after 8 months

    Boy am I glad the Apple Store Genius recommend I keep my old Apple Pro Mouse when I got my new iMac. The Mighty Mouse that came with my new computer has failed after only 8 months of use. The cord is fraying and splitting where it leaves the front of the mouse (and I don't have animals so there is no possibility of something chewing it). Not to mention the countless problems I have with it sometimes being too responsive, sometimes being unresponsive and sometimes moving clear across the screen on it's own.

    Be gentle...

    I am new to iMacs as of February, and cannot describe how fantastic and exceptional they are. I have had problems with the scroll ball. I consulted the manual. It didn't work. But you know what did?
    Try a few drops of water on the black cloth that came with your computer. Make sure it soaks into the material. Gently roll the mouse upside down on the wet surface in all directions. It works. I have also disabled the Dashboard application that you get when you 'click' on the scroll ball. This, I would imagine, reduces wear and tear. If I need Dashboard, I just click on it on the dock. I hope you find this useful.

    Apple Mighty Mouse

    After reading some of the other reviews on the disfunctionality of the scroll ball, I realized that dirt had caused my problem. I just wanted to let you know that I was able to clean it out with an old soft toothbrush. Seems to be working now. I am hoping for the best because I am very satisfied with all of the features
