    GREATEST SCROLL BALL EVER!!!!!!1111!!!!111!!!!!!!!11

    • Written by from Boise

    The scroll ball is the best part of the mouse. You can get a full 360 degree use out of it. People who fail to WASH THEIR HANDS may have some issues with it however, but this is easily remedied. APPLE PWNS AGAIN!!!!!1111!!!!!!!!

    This Rocks

    • Written by from Denver

    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?

    • Written by from Naples

    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.

    What is every one talking about?

    • Written by from Claremont

    This mouse is amazing, I have mine for almost two years and have only had the scroll wheel gt stuck once, but that was easily fixed by turning it upside down. All the pressure sensors are pretty tight also.

    Excelent Design

    • Written by from ROCKLEDGE

    I have read the reviews from others over the Mighty Mouse and need to put my 2 cents in . I own 3 of these mice and WOW the reactions I get from people using them are very funny. Most people do not know how to get the second button to work (most of my Mighty Mice are on PC's (GASP) and they do not realize that lifting a finger fixes the issues with the mouse and it works flawlessly. Once they get that they stop complaining. Im not going to change mice just to appease someone who wants to use my computer. As for the track ball Clean it. I seen on apples site to use rubbing alcohol and a soft cloth , Invert the mouse and roll it around and it cleans the mouse nicely. I have had the scroll problems listed through out these reviews and that method clears it up very well . And above all CLEAN HANDS people. I love the 360 scroll just wish it worked on a pc. 5 Star product as always Apple. Some people just have no patience to learn new things :)

    The Mighty Mouse is Sure Mighty!

    • Written by from Panorama Village

    I bought this mouse 4 months ago and never had a problem with it. It is comfortable to me and never I had a problem with it. Its tiny trackball may be a little uncomfortable for some, but its fine with me. The price seems a little high but its worth the money.

    Mighty Mouse Solution

    • Written by from springfield

    Thank you, thank you, thank you to the reviewer who said to roll the ball on a piece of paper on a hard surface to clean out the dirt/lint/whatever else is in there. I did just that and it did seem a bit abusive to the ball at first. However, my Mighty Mouse is once again Mighty! Works like new again and I just saved myself $50 since I didn't have to get a new one. TRY IT...IT REALLY DOES WORK!

    Great Mouse

    • Written by from Riverside

    This mouse works just great. I've had the wired and wireless versions of this mouse and both of them are just great. The wireless sometimes takes more than expected to connect to the Mac but other than that, it's great. From time to time, the scroll ball stops working, but nothing that a soft cloth and alcohol can't fix! I put a bit of rubbing alcohol on a cloth and turn the mouse upside down and scrub it up/down, left/right and it becomes fully functional again! Clean your Mouse, people! Don't return the mouse... It's uniform shape and size makes it very easy to hold and isn't awkward at all! Buy it!

    Great advice...

    • Written by from Saratoga Springs

    I've worked with the mighty mouse for sometime, and one of my cohorts taught me a neat trick. Place an ordinary piece of paper on a hard, flat surface. Press the ball against the paper and roll it around. It seems abusive at first, but all of the gross little chunks of dirt and such spew out on the paper. Thus making your mouse mighty once again.

    excellent mouse - best on market

    • Written by from Fayetteville

    I've been using 2 different Mighty Mouse (Mice) for a couple of years now. One with my MacBok and one with my PC at work. Both are great.

    I think they are the most ergonomic and comfortable mice and they improved my wrist pain dramatically, they look great, they are very accurate at tracking, and they do not get dirty inside.

    I do not know why people are finding the ball getting so dirty? Maybe their hands are not clean when they are using it?

    I used to use Logitech and Intellimouse and I bought the first Mighty Mouse for one for my PCs at work after testing a lot of mice at a store. I love it and my co-workers are envious. Try it out at Best Buy, Apple Store, or anywhere else that sells it. They usually have one on display and you can get a feel for how smooth it feels and operates. PLUS, on a Mac (sorry PC users) you can scroll SIDEWAYS with the ball as it moves in all directions! Great design and great product and I am not just trying to push Apple products at all.

    Nearly perfect!

    • Written by from ARLINGTON

    Sure, the trackball needs periodic cleaning, but the whole mouse is so subtle I often forget I'm using it. When I touch a mouse without 360 degree scrolling, I'm completely lost and totally annoyed. Now, Apple, just do one in aluminum, willya?

    Scroller malfunction fix

    • Written by

    I had similar problems with the scroller failing within a few months of buying the mouse. Really frustrated me till I read this review that a good citizen wrote for the wireless mouse. Try it...it works!

    This is not a review - it's a fix for the scroller.

    I went to the Apple store by my house today and talked to a guy about sending this mouse in for repair since I have only had it a few months. He said I needed an appointment, but he also said it was easily fixed. He advised me to clean the roller ball on the top with alcohol wipes or a q-tip soaked in alcohol.
    I thought it wouldn't work but since I had to wait for my appointment to send it in to apple I tried it and cleaned it thoroughly with alcohol and a q-tip. I let it dry for five minutes and it works like new.
    I am very pleased with the advice I got and just wanted to share with some of you who might be having the same problem.

    Works great.

    • Written by from Toronto

    Thinking of buying one as a gift since my 18 month old my mouse has been perfect. After reading some of the poor reviews I thought I would add my experience. I carry it back and forth to work everyday, it is beat up, scratched, covered in pencil dust and works like new.

    Love it!

    • Written by from cornelius

    I have 3, 2 at home and 1 at work. Occasionally the scroll ball will stop working in one direction or another, but all that is needed is an alcohol swab. Rub over the ball in random directions until it starts working again. This cleaning usually has to be done maybe every 6 months.

    Love It

    • Written by from Cavalier

    I received this mouse as a gift about a week ago, and so far I absolutely love it! It has a very sturdy feeling in my hand, and is an absolute joy to use. The 360º scroll ball is amazing, and the pressure pads on the side are extremely useful for access Expose.

    Don't use alchohol !

    • Written by from Lachine

    Don't use alchohol to clean the track ball assembly, alchohol is corrosive and the improvement would be short-lived, use WB40 or similar, you don't really want that alcohol getting anywhere near metal connections/contacts, I know Apple recommends alcohol for this job, what, are they drunk? Just make sure you wipe the ball dry, petroleum products are not really good for rubber.
    Othewise it's the best mouse I have ever had (I own the wired version).
