    Terrific Minimalist & Functional Design...

    • Written by

    It may not be everyones opinion, but personally I find the minimalist design, ergonomics and functions first rate. The reliability has also been excellent.

    The scroll ball is obviously a tight tolerance design and likely sensitive to any foreign matter that may enter around it's periphery so I always make sure my hands are clean before sitting down at the computer. This also keeps my keyboard clean.

    Just a casual look at the "mice" available from other companies ( which to me often tend to look like running shoes), the Apple Mouse (and virtually all other Apple products) are clearly in a class by themselves. It's obvious Mr Jobs is more than an engineer and businessman. Firstly, he's an Industrial Designer.

    No problems whatsoever

    • Written by from Tigard

    I've been using this mouse for over a year and have had no problems. I love the expose features and the ability to scroll 360º. The multiple buttons increase productivity and make accessing frequently used features simpler. Mouse is comfortable and looks very elegant on my desktop. I'm very happy with this product and would say that it was worth the $50.

    LOVE IT!!!!!!

    • Written by from Norwell

    I use this product with all of my Apple Computers (PowerMac G5, PowerMac G4, PowerBook 1.67Ghz 17", Intel iMac Core 2 Duo) & All my Windows Boxes (Dell Dimension 8400, XP Custom Built, & a Vista homebuilt) it works fantastic. I recommend this to ANYONE who wants a reliable mouse for any Mac or PC. Also, with my PowerMac G5 I use the Wireless one which is awesome as well. Again, this is for ANYONE who wants a reliable mouse for any Mac or PC.

    No good for nose pickers!

    As long as you keep your scrolling finger free of "debris," you will have years of trouble free use from this wonderful product.

    This mouse is much more useful than the one that originally came with my Power Mac G4. I have been using it for over a year and I have encountered zero problemos.

    Works great – pro or amateur user –

    I've been using this mouse for over a year and so far has been working great. I've been using it as a professional designer and as an animation student and has stood up to all those different clicks and scrolls of different programs.

    I highly recommend it it.

    Great product.

    Treat it carefully, and it'll be your favorite mouse.

    This is the most innovative mouse that I've ever used. It's very responsive, and in my experience it has also been quite durable. For the people who have complained of the scroll ball not working, I haven't had any similar experiences. I've used it for over a year and it still works flawlessly. I would guess that those who have experienced problems have simply been a little rough on it. I don't need to tell about all of the amazing uses, but I'll affirm all of Apple's claims regarding the mouse's useful features. The ability to reassign what each of the buttons does is also really cool. Overall, I highly recommend this product.

    Very Nice!

    • Written by from San Antonio

    This mouse is sweet! I just upgraded from an Apple Pro Mouse that I used for 6 years. The scrolling feature is great. The Mighty Mouse takes a little getting used to, but once you do it really speeds up productivity. I can't believe so many people are complaining about the scroll ball, it works very nice for me. If you keep your hands and your mouse clean, you shouldn't have any problems. Just be aware of where your pointer is when you're using the scroll feature and it should be smooth sailing. I found, that if you put the pointer over specific areas in some applications this allows you to move sliders. In iTunes, if you put the pointer over the volume you can scroll it up and down. Also the ability to scroll through my whole iTunes Library with one small motion is very nice! The Mighty mouse is another great product from Apple.

    Easy to use... easy to clean too!

    • Written by from Kitchener

    This is a wonderful mouse to use, and the extra features make navigating my Mac so much easier. That said, yes, the little scroll ball can get stuck because human fingers are grubby and sticky. All those old skin cells do clog things up. I'm amazed by the number of people who claim their mouse is now useless. Get a lint free cloth, put some isopropyl alcohol on it, and rub it back and forth on the mouse ball while holding the mouse upside down. Works every time for me... voila, working track ball!

    Being a PC transfer to mac, I like this mouse. I bought a 'pc' mouse and it drives me nuts! As for breaking.. we have a whole lab of these mice at my college, and it's been a year.. no problems... so.. who knows?

    This is Great

    • Written by from Reno

    I love the mighty mouse. It looks remarkably simple but it has 3 buttons, a side button, and 4 direction scrolling. It rarly gets confused to what button I am trying to press. The scroll wheel will stop working after a couple of months... If you don't clean it like the manuel sugest. To clean it just take an alcohol wipe or paper towel sprayed with Windex, turn the mouse over and scroll the wheel in all directions with the cloth.
