    basic hygiene

    people -
    wash your hands. i have an aluminum imac at work and at home. one has the wireless mouse and one is wired. i have had no scroll ball problems thus far and the mice work great. as for battery life - im 60 days in on my wireless and still have 91% life left and only use one battery at a time because i like the lighter weight. i plan to replace my wired version with a wireless but will wait until a wireless keyboard is available with a keypad and my chemist friends will follow suit.

    Scroll Bar Quick fix

    after about 2 months on my mighty mouse the scroll bar stop working, then it would only go up. After researching why it did this i found that the bar collects finger grease. Causing the sensor to not recognize the ball rotating. HERE'S THE FIX: get a piece of printer paper, and place the mouse upside down, with the ball touching the paper. Then rub the mouse ball against the paper in all directions. You should see your black finger grease on the paper. Repeat about every 2 months

    Great Mouse, If you read manuals

    One of the best mice i've used, there are a lot better ones out there but its really neat and simplistic. Please clean the scrolling ball, CLEAN IT - the manual has it there... to clean the scrolling ball... read. clean. and good as new.

    neat laser easter egg.

    Mighty Fine

    The Apple wired Mighty Mouse is by far the best mouse I've ever known. Some people complain about the scroll bar collecting dirt, but mine hardly collects any. If you don't eat and use it then you will be fine. The wired version is great because you never have to worry about running out of battery and the fact that it plugs right into the side of the Apple keyboard is just the best ever! The two click shell is an awesome idea and this is an awesome product. I highly recommend getting this for both Macs and PCs alike.

    Great Mouse!

    The mouse is totally great. However, clean your hands before using because it can clog up the mouse wheel. If your wheel does clog up try this:
    Put a blank sheet of paper on a hard and smooth surface.
    Then roll the mouse upside down on it for 60 seconds.
    Vola! As good as new.

    Works great if you wash your hands

    I've had the wireless version of the mouse for nearly a year, the wired version for about 4 months - they work fine without a hitch. But if you like to eat greasy food (or wash your hands only once a day) you're doomed to gum up the scroll ball and dirty up the bottom of the mouse (creates drag).

    My keyboards are clean as well - some people tend to dirty up everything their hands touch so if you're one of those people you might not like this mouse.

    Mac Mini

    I just got this mouse today and I love it, its works way better then all my other mice I have used in the past. The ball on top of the mouse is is very nice when it comes to the internet and other things where you have to go up and down and left to right, its nice they put all that in one button. Apple did a good job making this mouse.

    Best Mouse Ever!!

    I have just got one and I love it. I use it on my Dell along side with my G4. The secret right click was an amazing idea. ;) Keep it up apple!!

    Great.. and yes you CAN clean it...

    The Mighty Mouse is wonderful! I have had mine since I bought my computer over a year ago. I did have trouble with the scroll ball failing a couple times, but if you follow the online instructions to cleaning it, it will return to normal functioning. Highly recommended, but I just wish I bought the wireless one instead :-/

    Great Mouse!

    Works great, best mouse I've every used. The scroll wheel does get clogged but you can clean it out with rubbing alcohol and it works like new afterward. Lokks great and works great. So what if you have to clean it every few months?

    Excellent mouse!

    I have been using various wireless and wired mice for years, but the wired mighty mouse beats them all. Wireless mice depend on batteries to keep operating and previous wired mice I've used have been awkward. The wired mighty mouse fits my hand, the scroll button allows me to scroll not just from top to bottom but from side to side in side a document. Now I just need to get a second one to keep with my older laptop!

    Amazing

    I love this mouse. I wanted the wireless mouse but it was a gift and works amazingly. The only problem I have had was when i used it in my bed were there are like bumps and won't work there but otherwise it has worked for everything.

    unbelievable mouse

    I got this with my 17" intel iMac, and I've gotta say, what an improvement from our old logitec PC mouse! I love the ball instead of wheel, the side buttons are awesome for people like me who are constantly going back and forth between windows, and it has a very comfortable feel.
    my only problem is that every once in a while, some dirt or dust gets in the little space where the ball is and it can't scroll one way or another. the solution to this is some forceful scrolling or simply blowing into the space to get the dust out.
    all in all, a great buy for the money!

    great mouse, no problems

    i got the mighty mouse when i purchased my mac pro well over a year ago and it's still working great. i haven't experienced any of the sticking of the scroll ball that others mention and the buttons all continue to function as they're supposed to. no complaints here, i think it's a great product.

    This mouse is underrated!

    I LOVE this mouse! Everyone's complaining about how it stops working... I haven't had any problem with it so far! It is a sleek and sexy mouse that has four buttons, a GREAT feature when it comes to Expose; and Dashboard. I LOVE this mouse and I look forward to going wireless!

    Great Design, Great Usability, GREAT PRODUCT!!!

    After having the mouse for a week, I am thoroughly satisfied. Its sleek, white case looks like a single button mouse, but is in fact a stylish double button. It uses touch-sensitive technology to distinguish between left and right clicking. As for the people that complain about having to lift your finger from the left side to right click, I do this normally, so it really isn't an issue. Also, as for the trackball issue, I have seen no problems. As I have seen in other places, washing hands normally throughout the day and operating environment will make a difference in keeping it clean. One last thing, when I first got it I thought the click was way too stiff, but since having it for 7 days, and using it for 7 days, it has become a little more broken in, and is great now. Overall, this is a fantastic mouse, I wouldn't have it any other way!

    IT IS GREAT

    I have loved this mouse ever since i got it, and was just about to replace the mice on my old computers with these new ones when I noticed it stopped scrolling!! DARN!! I was flabergasted, then I came onto this site and saw all the bad reviews and my heart sank... THEN !!!!!!! I did what the OTHER reviews said which is to rinse the scroll ball with rubbing alcohol on a Q-TIP and WHAMMO... IT WORKED PERFECTLY again!! So my faith in Apple is restored once again. I just wish there was someway for the other users to find out that this Rubbing Alcohol + QTip works like a charm. Dip the Q-Tip in alcohol and rub the ball around in the solvent for about one minute (maybe less will do) then rub the scroll ball with a dry Q-Tip and when the solvent dries, the scroll wheel works agaiin like a charm. Its faster and easier than the old mice that had to have the dust cleaned out of them, this is much less of a hassle, so don't despair, just pull some rubbing alcohol out of the medicine cabinet and your problem is solved!!!!!

    Mighty!

    I've used this mouse for several months now, and primarily because of the "Scroll Ball", it has offically become my favorite. The scroll ball enables me to be more efficient than ever before with my mouse hand, allowing very small movements instead of the constant back and forth motion to the scroll bars that old mice forced me to do. Tack on that you can configure the mouse to have a "Right Click" and it has quickly become my fave. Sleek design too. Bravo!

    Cleaned the scroll and it works!

    I was having a problem with the scroll button until I stumbled upon an advice on this page to clean it with alcohol. I used my facial toner instead with a cotton wipe and viola! My scroll button is working again. I was about to buy a new mouse. Thanks guys!
