    Roller Ball Solution

    We are a couple of grease balls an we use a G5 w/ an Apple wired Mighty Mouse. Our scroll ball started to not scroll properly. We just let it go for a month or so. Got kind of messy so I read through the REVIEWS and found this one:

    "May 22, 2008 ---- I have had this mouse for 3 years now and it still works great. The scroll ball just need to be occasionally cleaned which is easily done by turning the mouse upside down and rolling it on a piece of paper. Go to you tube if you want a video. People want to complain about the scroll ball not working but, mine works just as good as day one."

    I turned the mouse over and rolled it around on a white pad and WOW it works. It seems like better than ever.

    Mighty Mouse remains mighty!

    Don't give up on the Mighty Mouse if you think the scroll ball is dead! Just get a damp cloth, turn the mouse over and rub the ball vigorously across the damp area of the cloth (these instructions are in the apple knowledge base). Viola! Your Mighty Mouse will roar once more!

    I never really thought much about computer mice until I started using this one. Now I find it hard to use others, especially if there is no horizontal scroll. It is hard to believe how intuitive it is to use the scroll ball. Another design success for Apple - looks great and offers great functionality.

    Probably the best mouse on the market

    Anyone switching from Windows to Mac knows how difficult the transition is going from a two-button mouse to a one button mouse. Since the introduction of the Mighty Mouse a few years ago, this has made the transition so much easier. Having a 'standard' 5-button mouse with a track ball makes working a breeze. I've been a Mac user for 8 years (although I did use a Mac in the late '80s during high school) and I love the short cuts that the Mighty Mouse provides. This mouse and the other desktop shortcuts (desktop corners) really allow you to customize your whole Mac experience. The only short fall is hitting the mouse correctly when trying for either the left or right button... a minor set back.

    Great Mouse... Bad Eating Habits

    For a year and a half, 8 to 18 hours a day, 6 to 7 days a week, my little mighty mouse has raced flawlessly in Final Cut Pro. No issues whatsoever with right-clicking, and the scroll-ball zooms along the timeline with total precision. I have never cleaned it, I'm not a neat freak, but I like to take care of my equipment- you pay alot for nice stuff, KEEP it nice. The scroll-ball issues mentioned by so many are obviously caused by GRIME. And so I say to all you greasy-fingered Mac Trashers: LAY OFF THE CHEESE CURLS!!!

    Nothing Else Like It

    The Apple Mighty Mouse is very unique and there is no other mouse in the market like it. I prefer the corded because it's for my laptop which is right next to my mouse at all times and so that I don't have to put batteries in it. But like I said there's nothing else like it!!! BUY ONE TODAY!!! NO REGRETS

    Greatest Mouse Ever!!!

    This has been by far, the best mouse I have ever had. I used to have the "Power Mouse", but it was clear, so it showed dirt and dust. This ones works wonderfully. The scroll ball works great and I'm very pleased with it. I would certainly recommend it.

    Works great...

    I have had this mouse for 3 years now and it still works great. The scroll ball just need to be occasionally cleaned which is easily done by turning the mouse upside down and rolling it on a piece of paper. Go to you tube if you want a video. People want to complain about the scroll ball not working but, mine works just as good as day one.

    Wonderful Mouse

    I love the Mighty Mouse. It has all the features you could want (unless you are a gamer) and works flawlessly. I have had my mouse for well over a year without a single problem. In fact, I like it so much I bought I wireless Mighty Mouse to use with my MacBook.

    Great Basic Mouse

    Simple, functional, scroll ball is great for graphic design or audio editing where precise horizontal scrolling is needed. I'd definitely recommend it for Windows or OSX.

    A Good Mouse

    I've had an Apple Mighty Mouse for over a year. My mouse if still working great. I've never needed to clean the scroll ball or cracks. I think it is a very good product and its functions still work.

    Best Mouse on the Market

    I have used the wired and wireless version of the Mighty Mouse for several years, and it has become my favorite. The secret to reliable use of the scroll ball is to keep your hands clean -- not a bad idea anyway when using any computer peripheral. The left and right and multi-click commands were a little tricky to master at first, but now even that seems natural now that I have mastered the movements. Overall, a great mouse!!

    what's wrong with the mighty mouse?

    I bought my iMac just over a year ago, and absolutely love the mighty mouse. like everyone else here, I had issues with the scroll wheel just a few weeks/months after my purchase. something that I was told by Apple when I called in: use a CLEAN sock and some rubbing alcohol to clean the scroll wheel-just rub it around & back/forth, and it'll come clean. this makes the wheel work again!
    if you use your computer a lot, you'll have to do this pretty often-or wash your hands more often. but it's WAY better than wasting $$$ on a new mouse when this one works just fine.

    Great

    I don't know exactly why everybody complains about this mouse... I have one like this, and one wireless. I use them about 4 - 5 hours each everyday. I bought them by March 2007, and so far, so good! No problems at all; they are really intuitive and functional. Way to go, Apple!

    Perfect little mouse

    This is a great and intuitive mouse for beginners and opened minded advanced users. I've used a PC my whole life (both Linux & Windows) and I think I like this design better.

    It's also really easy for my children to use because there is no button per se.

    A wonderful mouse - don't believe all of the reviews!

    I have owned this mouse for 3 years and I am just now experiencing what several of the reviewers said happened to them after a few months-the mouse roller stopped rolling up and down. I absolutely love this mouse. I hate track pads and love all of the features - especially the 360 degree scrolling. I came to the site to buy another one. I read the reviews and learned I could clean the roller ball! I used a tissue and rubbing alcohol - it fixed the problem. Thanks to the reviewer that shared this information. Sorry Apple! I don't need to order another Mighty Mouse!

    The Danger of Online Reviews

    I am really surprised that the Mighty Mouse is rated SO low. Could it be that Joe Public doesn't know how to use a mouse? Anyway the Mighty Mouse is wonderful, even if you are a gamer! If you have a problem with how the buttons are configured, just go into settings and reconfigure them and everything will be great. I have played World of Warcraft with this mouse and edited video and sound as well as everyday surfing etc. WONDERFUL. The only reason I didn't get the Mighty Mouse sooner is because of the low rating from other consumers. Don't let the three stars stop you from buying this great Apple Product.
