    This is my third (& last) Apple mouse.

    I just ordered my 3rd wired Apple mouse in 7 years. Life span of these are limited. The roller ball gets fouled and there is no way to properly clean it. I feel Apple could do a way better job of mouse design. I rate this product as a weak 1 star.

    It's... meh.

    From what I've seen, here's what I can say:

    * Right clicking is kinda hit-or-miss. Works about 70% of the time.
    * Cord is too short.
    * Scroll ball is sometimes way too sensitive and/or doesn't even work at all.

    It's a neat concept, but be warned - not all features work as they should. Buy at your own risk.

    BEST MOUSE EVER!!

    This is the greatest mouse I have ever used! I love the design, The 360 degree scroll bar, and it works great with Mac OS X and Windows! If you are looking for a new mouse, I highly recommend this mouse for OS X and Windows Users!

    These mice are amazing!!

    The Mighty Mouse is absolutely amazing, I use them every single day. When they start to only scroll up, the easiest fix is this... Either grab a clean paper towel and some rubbing alcohol or some diabetic alcohol swab packets... rub the ball in every single direction for about 5 minutes and it cleans the shiite out of it. Works awesome!!!!

    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.

    Ball stops working

    I read the comments before buying this mouse, and for some reason I didn't listen. Everyone says that the ball stops working in a few months. I have had my mouse for two months, and the ball has stopped working. For a $50 mouse, I don't think I should be having this problem.

    Love this mouse.

    I've used several of these (starting with the original wireless version) since it was introduced and absolutely love it. It feels good and substantial and the scroll ball is wonderful (just keep your hands clean, and you'll be fine). I've tried the magic mouse a few times and it drives me nuts. I've found I can depend on this mouse to help me navigate the system with ease, dexterity and speed.

    On the few occasions the scroll ball has gotten too dirty to respond, the paper trick has worked every time, and very quickly.

    Ok, wireless would be better

    This mouse is really cool- it's got lots of buttons which you can set up to do a lot of different things. The scroll wheel lets you scroll 360 degrees. The only thing that gets really annoying is the cord. It might not be as "in the way" if I were using a desktop computer, but when you're using it with a Macbook, it gets in the way. The other thing is that it's hard to carry the mouse around with the cord sticking out. (Yes, you can wrap it around, but that becomes tedious after a couple times.) Overall, it's a great mouse, but it would be better if it was wireless. If I had a choice, I would spend the extra money and buy the wireless and multi-touch Magic Mouse 2.

    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...
