    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.

    Great mouse

    • Written by from Esmont

    This mouse is very good, I prefer it over the mighty mouse as it has far more functionality with the side buttons particularly if you have a lager monitor and many windows.

    For those who find the track ball too prone to failure, I recommend washing your hands more often. I have many of this model mouse which have been used in the field, some five or more years old, and all I do is clean the ball, blow a little air and back into service they go. It's not the mouse that defective, it's our dirty hand and work areas. Don't use hand lotion on you finger tip, Frito's and other greasy food are the devil for these devices. If you what to work that what buy one of the many PC tank mice and be on your way.

    Great mouse

    • Written by from Brooklyn Park

    I have had my Mighty Mouse for a couple years. Only maintenance it has every needed is an annual touch of the scroll ball with an alcohol wipe to clean it off (takes a few seconds) and recharge of batteries every couple months. I love it!!!

    Great Mouse, Easy to Clean.

    • Written by from Cambridge

    If your scroll ball stops working, you can easily fix it by making a Que-Tip slightly damp, rolling the Que-Tip around on the ball, then flipping the mouse upside down on a blank piece of paper and pressing on the scroll ball as you move the mouse around.

    Search on YouTube for :"how to clean apple mouse" and there will be loads of videos on how to clean it easily WITHOUT taking it apart.

    A great mouse...

    • Written by from Albany

    I use this mouse for a variety of applications, both on a PC and a Mac. Whether gaming, browsing or doing design work, it's never let me down. As for those who've experienced roller-ball issues: just give the mouse a good cleaning, and it'll be working like new again. I've found that a microfiber cloth will clear just about any jam - if it's particularly bad, lightly damp the cloth. I've been using mine since the Mighty Mouse was released back in 2005, and plan on using it for many years to come.

    Love it!

    • Written by from cornelius

    I have 3, 2 at home and 1 at work. Occasionally the scroll ball will stop working in one direction or another, but all that is needed is an alcohol swab. Rub over the ball in random directions until it starts working again. This cleaning usually has to be done maybe every 6 months.

    Mighty Mouse remains mighty!

    • Written by from Rochester

    Don't give up on the Mighty Mouse if you think the scroll ball is dead! Just get a damp cloth, turn the mouse over and rub the ball vigorously across the damp area of the cloth (these instructions are in the apple knowledge base). Viola! Your Mighty Mouse will roar once more!

    I never really thought much about computer mice until I started using this one. Now I find it hard to use others, especially if there is no horizontal scroll. It is hard to believe how intuitive it is to use the scroll ball. Another design success for Apple - looks great and offers great functionality.

    Great Mouse!

    • Written by from Lyme

    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?

    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!

    Cleaned the scroll and it works!

    • Written by from Burnaby

    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!

    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.

    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.

    Apple has improved this mouse!

    • Written by from Ann Arbor

    I HIGHLY recommend this for GAMERS, but the magic mouse kinda doesn't fit me that much because it will scroll sometimes when I am just clicking the magic mouse.

    Second Day Use, Awesome Mouse..

    • Written by from Calgary

    I've used Logitech, Microsoft, Razer, & Apple Mice in the past, and I have to say this is the best one I've come across, especially for Mac OS users..

    I'm a Web Designer, so I rely on pixel accuracy, and this mouse delivers in that area.. Not only that - it's much better then the Magic Mouse & it's certainly more ergonomic then the Magic Mouse..

    Now I've only had the opportunity to use it for 2 days, and I suspect based on a lot of the comments is that eventually It will loose some functionality.. But because I haven't experienced any issues just yet I'm going to give it a 5 star..

    I got this mouse for $35 Brand new sealed, so In my case I think it was worth it at that price..

    If it does end up failing, there is 1 year warranty, so I'm guessing after replacing it you could potentially use it up to 1 1/2 years.. Which is not too bad IMO..

    best mouse ever

    • Written by from Lexington

    I think that this is the best mouse Apple has ever made. The magic mouse is so ergonomically wrong. If they find a way to combine the shape of the Mighty Mouse with the functions of a Magic Mouse they will have a big winner
