    Not bad

    this mouse is one of the best mice that ive owned, and i havent really had any problems with it. I think its due to how you use it, because i look after mine, so the scroll ball hasnt clogged.

    The only problem ive had is that the USB cable is catastrophically short, i can only just get it around my MacBook from the USB ports, the design element in that was useless.

    The design of the mouse itself is fantastic, if i could warrant the £50 to buy the wireless one i would, because that one im sure is flawless.

    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 cleaning tip

    My mouse stopped scrolling after a few months, have just cleaned the ball with an alcohol screen wipe and it's now working perfectly.

    Suggest you try before binning!

    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.

    Scroll Ball Issues

    If I were to redesign this mouse...
    I would put an optical tracker on the top as well as the bottom - and thus the mouse would lose it's ball (remember mice with balls?) and all these moving parts issue would go away!
    I had a little trouble right clicking in games with it though - tended to left click a bit (but that could just be that the game is broken!)

    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.
