    I'm so disappointed...this is useless

    This is the most beautiful but hopeless mouse I have ever owned. It's a single button so relies on where you press it to get left click and right click (I'm not using centre click). Every so often, the scroll ball just stops working or only scrolls in one direction. You then have to scroll like crazy to bring it back to life. Getting a right click (to open sub-menus) is nigh on impossible in some situations. You just sit there clicking away and eventually it realises you're doing a right click. I've had it less than a month and it's been pants, so thinking of returning for a refund before it packs up completely.

    Amazingly bad..!

    Sure, you pay a little more than you want to, but in return you get an Apple product with great design and quality, right?
    ...mweh... not so sure anymore these days. This mouse is another example. The most basic things a mouse should do is move a cursor around, respond to clicks, and scroll properly. Amazingly, in ALL these respects it fails to deliver.

    1. Tracking is slow and imprecise - I had to ramp it up beyond what system prefernces would allow me, through a terminal command. Sometimes it tracks faster, sometimes slower... I have to admit that I don't use a mousepad, but with my desk surface tracking has never been a problem for any other mouse except for this one.

    2. Right clicks... work 85% of the time. Just about any other mouse works fine with my comp, but the moment I plug this one in the right clicks start failing.

    3. Scrolling feels jerky and imprecise. Also this works much smoother with my much cheaper Logitech mouse attached.

    How they manage to mess up in all these distinct but crucial aspects that make a mouse a MOUSE is beyond me. I have never paid more for a mouse. I have never received less from a mouse. These are two separate facts of which the combination kind of blows my mind. Big thumbs down, apple...

    Scroll wheel broke after only 3 months

    The magic mouse couldn't stay connected to my Macbook for more than 3 minutes in a row, so I had decided to exchange it for a standard Apple Mouse. I've been using this standard Apple mouse with great satisfaction, until the scroll wheel stopped scrolling upwards after only 3 months. No Apple mouse for me anymore.

    Apple Wireless Mouse

    First and foremost, this occurs on multiple machines and multiple mice. Second, it's been a nagging problem for years, through each version of the OS up to Yosemite. Third, this is not a problem with wireless mice in general, it's Apple's specific problem. Finally, it's astonishing that they have allowed this small device render my $2,500 plus systems useless for most tasks without having to restart the computer, and this design company is incapable of fixing its own hardware. Restarting is generally the ONLY way to get this working again. None of the B.S. offered in various Apple troubleshooting guides works. Turning the mouse off and on, turning bluetooth off and on, taking the batteries out of the mouse, nothing works. I feel like I'm using a $100 piece of junk not a top-end laptop when the mouse fails to connect or reconnect.

    Scroll Ball Will Fail, Guranteed. Consider this mouse a consumable.

    The first one failed after 2 years. It stopped scrolling down. The second one also failed after 2 years. It stopped scrolling up and down.

    The cleaning methods mentioned in other reviews worked only a few times.

    The failing scroll ball is mentioned many times in other reviews, but I feel I need to do what I can to bring down the rating for this mouse.

    Failure. Total failure

    First feel of this mouse is extremely sluggish. Second the scroll ball is not reliable at all. U can never expect how far it's gonna go.

    Apple Mouse

    This is a great mouse for the first month or so - then the best part of the ball stops working. I've done everything to clean it, but it's not working. This is the replacement for the first one which had the same issue. Apple needs to fix this problem!!!

    Worst product

    I wish I could rate this product with negative stars. First of all, It's a wired mouse so there are no complications like wireless mouse etc...in other words when plugged in it is always on. Scroll ball on this sucker just stopped working for no reason. Yes it is clean. Yes used rubbing alcohol.... rolled it around in every possible way...still no luck. For a wired mouse this thing is very much overpriced, which is ok if it works like it's supposed to. Is anyone at apple even looking at these complaints? Either take this junk off the market or fix it.

    Planned obsolescense

    The name mighty is misleading. Be prepared for the 360 scroll to not last as long as the rest of the mouse.

    Don't waste your money

    This has got to be the worse mouse on the market. EVER. It's expensive but unreliable. I bought it because the magic mouse does not track well on the Thunderbolt display. If you run a Mac laptop with a thunderbolt display, the magic mouse is so sluggish on screen that I ended up throwing it out of the windows (best $80 fit I ever threw). Bought this ugly expensive formless piece of plastic instead and regretted it ever since. Unresponsive, likely to stop working properly at any time (especially the scroll button AND even the one-click button). I just spent an hour writing a text in Word and the mouse won't let me drop the cursor anywere. The window is open and I'm about to chuck it out so that it can go keep company to its magic mouse brother in the ditch in front of my house. Getting mighty tired of the ccrap Apple is putting out there. Are we paying more just for what the stuff looks like? Because there's Windows hardware out there that looks good too, is less expensive and lasts longer and is more reliable.

    Wish I could give 0 star, but the minimum is 1.

    This is a terrible product and Apple should withdraw it.

    Today I'll be visiting my local E-Waste recycling center, and amongst the obsolete power supplies, spare cables and other oddities, there are two broken Apple Mice. A hundred bucks'-worth of mice. Both have the same problem that EVERY SINGLE USER eventually experiences, which is the Stupid Scroll Ball Thing doesn't work any more.
    I replaced my last Apple Mouse with the Wireless, Stupid-Scroll-Ball-Thing-less Apple Magic Mouse. The Magic Mouse is, unequivocally, the single best electronic item I've ever bought. It's beyond brilliant. It should be the ONLY Mouse that Apple sells.

    Failure

    The track ball nub worked for exactly one day. I cleaned it, and it worked for another day. Then I threw the mouse out.

    ROLLER BALL DOES NOT WORK CONSISTENTLY

    Agree with previous comments. For a $50 dollar mouse, the roller ball worked for only a few weeks and now does not!

    looks good…works bad…lousy product

    Scroll ball ceased to function after two weeks. Second one same after about one month. Obviously won't be purchasing a third.

    One of the worst products Apple has ever put on the market. My "opinion" is well-documented by this point, but thought I'd add to the sea of displeasure just the same.

    Very expensive, Average performance, Horrible scroll wheel

    If you buy this mouse I suggest you read about cleaning the scroll wheel. You'll be doing it a lot. One or more of the scroll directions fails constantly because even the smallest bit of dirt is capable of jamming the internal scroll sensor.

    Single button clicking is also a problem if you're a converted Windows user.

    Instead, but a Microsoft mouse that feels better and is more reliable at less than half the cost.

    Not reliable

    Scroll feature frequently ceases to function in either direction making this a very unpredictable device.
    Unit is less than 6 months old.

    Worst design ever.

    This has got to be the worst mouse design ever. The ball malfunctions within a couple of months. Spent the extra cash and get a different one...it'll save you from freaking out trying to get the thing to work.

    Trackball will FAIL.

    This product needs to be redesigned to allow for user cleaning. Do not buy it until Apple fixes it. Junk.
