    Best Mouse

    • Written by

    This Mouse is the best I've had. The only problem i've had with it is the centre ball but apple replaced it straight away no questions asked. I love the 3rd and 4th buttons, I use them all the time!!!! I believe this mouse, even though it's wired is better than the new Magic Mouse, because it has the Expose and Dashboard activation buttons on the mouse. Apple this is your best mouse!!!!

    Idiot proof scroll wheel fix

    • Written by from Davie

    A fool proof way to clean the scroll wheel is unplug it and get an alchohol wipe and wipe the scroll wheel and presto! Brand new Mighty Mouse!

    Scroller malfunction fix

    • Written by

    I had similar problems with the scroller failing within a few months of buying the mouse. Really frustrated me till I read this review that a good citizen wrote for the wireless mouse. Try it...it works!

    This is not a review - it's a fix for the scroller.

    I went to the Apple store by my house today and talked to a guy about sending this mouse in for repair since I have only had it a few months. He said I needed an appointment, but he also said it was easily fixed. He advised me to clean the roller ball on the top with alcohol wipes or a q-tip soaked in alcohol.
    I thought it wouldn't work but since I had to wait for my appointment to send it in to apple I tried it and cleaned it thoroughly with alcohol and a q-tip. I let it dry for five minutes and it works like new.
    I am very pleased with the advice I got and just wanted to share with some of you who might be having the same problem.

    Best Mouse on the Market

    • Written by from Sealy

    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!!

    Excellent mouse!

    • Written by from SAINT CHARLES

    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

    • Written by from Grand Rapids

    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.

    Try this before buying a new mouse!

    • Written by from Greer

    I went to purchase a new mouse due to my scroll ball failing about a year ago. They were out of stock of the wired mighty mouse, so I thought I would just order it online. I then read the feedback regarding cleaning the scroll wheel by soaking a Q-Tip in alcohol and thoroughly cleaning the ball. My mouse now works like new, just out of the box! I hardly remember it working so well, as it is close to two years old. I guess the oil from our fingers (probably mostly due to my kids fingers because they are the ones that are always messing with my Mac; they can't keep their hands off of it) gets into the mechanism and needs to be cleaned. Try this before buying a new mouse!

    Check the Support Pages!!!

    • Written by from Port Coquitlam

    I agree that its annoying that scrolling down doesn't work after awhile. But if you are OBSERVANT! you would notice in the support pages for the mouse. CLEANING the mouse fixes this exact problem. Just get a damp cloth hold the mouse upside down and run the cloth on the ball really fast to clean it out. Plus be sure its upside so dirty falls down and out. After that do the same thing with a dry portion of the cloth, and GOOD AS NEW. Just did it tonight and worked wonders.. ONCE again. This also goes for the Wireless Version So to you people who don't clean it. STOP WHINING!

    Works great – pro or amateur user –

    • Written by from Kansas City

    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.

    Some common sense please

    • Written by from Vancouver

    Biggest complaint about it, the track ball stops working. A. maybe wash your hands from time to time. Oil and dust from our skin is unavoidable but 1 month or even 6 months and already having problems is on you. B. If it acts up, flip it over and start doing figure eights on a blank sheet of paper and watch as the eight starts showing color....ewwww. I love these mice (the plural for mouse previous reviewer) and pick them up all the time for next to nothing because of "problems" with the scroll ball. I have a box of more than twenty spares at my office all of which were fixed this way, 100% success rate. You can perform this quick fix or just take it apart and thoroughly clean it which takes all of a whopping three to five minutes. These concepts can't be escaping you people, its' common sense. I would take once of these over the horrific Magic Mouse any day of the week. My only complaint, where is the aluminum?

    Scroll wheel fix...

    • Written by from camano island

    Don't surf the interweb while eating fried chicken. The scroll ball gets gooey and needs to be cleaned, (I use Windex on a napkin). Hygiene people.

    This Rocks

    • Written by from Denver

    So many complaints about this great product. You have to keep it clean. Had mine for 2 years now. If the ball doesn't work, I simply turn it upside down on my mouse pad and rub it in all directions a few times. Works fine.

    Easy to use. Great product.

    Great Basic Mouse

    • Written by from Hummelstown

    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.

    Mighty Fine

    • Written by from Chicago

    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.

    Works great if you wash your hands

    • Written by from Boxboro

    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.

    Mouse works Fantastic!

    • Written by from West Bend

    I've had my mighty mouse for almost 2-years. It works great! some of the problems mentionedd below have never been an issue. I'm a graphic designer so I use the right click and scroll ball on a regular basis. The scroll ball has never givien me any of the problems mentioned, and the right click, while sometimes touchy, hasn't been a problem, you just have to make sure you click on the right side near the top (where you should) and not in the middle of the mouse. as far as to click and drag, if you click then pinch int he side buttons, you can pick up the mouse and drag without any problems. I love it!

    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.
