    Best Mouse

    • Written by from Bend

    This is the best mouse that I have ever used. The scroll ball makes 360° scrolling a breeze, and the side buttons make using Spaces very easy.

    Apple Mouse cord too short for MacBook

    • Written by from Wellington

    My Apple Mouse (previously known, I think, as Mighty Mouse) works OK, but it has only an 18 inch (46 cm) cord.
    This works OK with my iMac, but when I try to use this Apple Mouse with my 13" MacBook, which has the ports on the left-hand side, the Apple Mouse will not reach around far enough for me to use it with my right hand.
    I also have a cordless Magic Mouse for my iMac, but when I'm travelling with my MacBook I prefer to take a corded mouse with me due to battery issues, including on planes.
    Unfortunately this Apple Mouse is totally useless for a right-handed person to use with a MacBook.
    Is there a version of the Apple Mouse with a cord longer than 18" long?

    The best mouse ever created by man. Simple as that.

    • Written by from Prairie View

    Despite that I have a Windows PC, this mouse is great. The 360 degree scroll ball is not fully supported (L and R scrolling left and right), but does do up and down. I love how the side buttons can when both are pressed, take you a web page back when you need to (Windows Only). I will NEVER go back to my big pain in the rear end Logitech mouse, as it just feels tacky compared to the $49 magic of the Apple USB Mouse (formerly Apple Wired Mighty Mouse). Thank you, Apple, for persuading my parents to get me this for Christmas.

    My Favorite Mouse!

    • Written by from Ellicott City

    I've been a Mac user since the first Mac was introduced in the mid-1980s, and this is my favorite mouse of all. I keep my Apple Mouse working well. How? I squirt a bit of compressed air into the ball each time I finish using it for the day. It ALWAYS works, and it works well.

    Needs to be functional and has to stand-up

    • Written by from Pittsburg

    I bought my first I mac about one to two yrs ago. Everything seemed to work flawlessly.
    Then the mouse believe it or not shattered. I had to get some other mouse which technically is inferior. I now have to get a new one since apple does not cover this under the warranty. So the review of the mouse is ok but not perfect but you guys need to make the mouse more sturdy and built like other manufactures.
    Thanks

    Cool looking but deeply flawed...

    • Written by from Ancramdale

    Right. It looks cool and its wireless! But then it stops there...The scroll ball is a failure. I do a lot of work on PS and need to be able to scroll around easily. This kills my skills. It has stopped working on the down scroll and barely works on the up. I've even cleaned it. If I could get inside I could really clean it well...But alas, no dice, er...I mean "no mice".

    Not perfect

    • Written by from Spencerport

    Good mouse, roller ball does not roll any more. Have had for 2 years or so. I really don't want to buy another mouse that is not going to work in a year or two! The mouse also goes on it's own sometimes? Good mouse but as good as I would expect from Apple.

    Great Product

    • Written by from Columbus

    Overall, the mouse is a great product. It provides great functionality with the pressure sensitive sides and still works well even after two years of use. Those people who bought new mice because of the scroll ball issue could have done simply flipped the mouse upside down and rubbed the ball with a piece of printer paper. That information is easily available on the internet and Apple's website.

    Apple Doesn't Do Mice

    • Written by from Upton

    I am a convert from windows (three years ago) and while I think most things Mac are superior to Windows, Apple has been blinded by aesthetic design at the expense of functionality. The scroll ball on this mouse is horrible and the right clicking doesn't give you the same tactile feedback as a real two-button mouse.

    Works great until it stops working

    • Written by from Oldwick

    Like many other reviewers, my mouse suddenly would not scroll down. So I have to buy a new one. You just have to accept the fact that these will need to be replaced often. When it is working, it is a joy.

    Scroll Ball Fail

    • Written by from New Kensington

    I like the 360 degree scroll ball but it always stops working on the downward scroll. Third mouse to do this. The buttons on the side seem like a nice feature but they always get in the way more then they are useful. The right click is unreliable. Works about half the time.

    Love it

    • Written by from DuPont

    Like all the multitude of functions in this small product, as well as the look/feel.

    Had been working just fine for a couple of months until recently when the infamous scrolling ball got stuck. Thanks for the tip on how to clean it. The upside down rolling motion on printer paper did the job.

    Just some common misconceptions.

    • Written by from Cape Carteret

    I’ve had this mouse for two years now, and I absolutely love it! It has much more functionality (and more buttons) than Apple’s Magic Mouse; however, there are some things you should know.

    Here are the fixes one should be aware of when purchasing this product:

    1. The scroll ball must be cleaned occasionally by rolling the mouse upside down on a piece of printer paper. All the dirt and oils come right out onto the paper, and the ball works just like new!

    2. In order to right click, your left finger cannot be touching the left side of the mouse. You must life your left finger and press the right side of the mouse with your right finger. If you press the mouse with both fingers, it automatically registers as a left click.

    Flawed design

    • Written by from Wellesley

    In typical Apple fashion the product is overpriced, over-designed and under-engineered. Scroll ball gets dirty and does not work. When set up with right click enabled the mouse has a hard time determining whether your click is right or left. Works fine for a few months then becomes a pain.

    I don't see the problem...

    • Written by from East Setauket

    My husband purchased me an iMac for as an anniversary gift approximately a year and a half ago. I was mainly a PC/Windows user - I had never owned an Apple/Mac product before, so just about everything about it was foreign to me.

    I have to admit, while I LOVED the iMac's 24 inch screen, ease of use and the fact that the entire computer was built into the monitor (eliminated the tower and freeing up space), I initially HATED the keyboard and mouse that came with it in the box. I wasn't used to typing on something so flat, and while I liked the size of the keys, I didn't care for the fact that the keys weren't raised and staggered in height (meaning the overall tilt of more traditional keyboards). However, it didn't take me long to adjust to this new style and now my finger literally fly over the keys. I make few mistakes and notice that I don't become fatigued like I used to when I have to do a lot of typing.

    Now, to the mouse...yes I hated this thing too :o) I did NOT like that it didn't have the right and left click buttons. I eventually became used to it, and then I discovered that I could set up this mouse like the more traditional mouses (mice?) I was used to with a left and right click button. I love the buttons on the side as well. I find this little thing to be extremely versatile, ergonomic and easy to use. The scroll ball is amazing as well. It takes very little effort to move it around, which makes navigating a web page and documents very easy to do.

    As for the people who have given this product poor reviews, stating that it becomes dirty? First of all, anything we touch with our hands has the potential for getting dirty, which is why it is prudent that we take proper care of these items prior to handling. I have had this same mouse for a year and a half now. The white plastic casing and ball are as clean as and function as perfectly as the day I pulled it out of the box. I have had ZERO issues with any dirt, moisture and/or oils from my hands getting into the creases or down into the scroll ball. Then again, I always make sure my hands are clean and dry before I ever touch ANY of my electronics and I never eat around them.

    Good mouse. Terrible scroll ball

    • Written by from Newtonville

    I have gone through 2 mighty mouses and each time, the mouse's scroll ball stops working because dirt gets inside. It stinks when this happens, though I am now use to just pulling the page with the drag or using the down key. Upgrading to magic mouse in a few weeks

    Works wonderfully...until it doesn't

    COMPUTER USE: Above Average

    All my files were Mac when I moved to Texas over 10 years ago. My new district had NO support for Macs, so I was forced to become a Windows user. Recently, I have switched back to Mac and never looked back.

    We use our Mac across many applications and I absolutely LOVED the mouse. It worked like a charm and felt so good. Pinpoint accuracy and smart clicking even though there is only one surface. The scroll was absolutely WONDERFUL. I could scroll -->sideways without having to leave my documents, pictures or projects - absolutely hate that in Word documents - and could also go 360°.

    So why the bad rating? It's been dirty before, cleaned and worked, but 9 months later, after cleaning it using paper, turning it upside down, even tape to catch lint (as recommended in other reviews) my mouse will NOT scroll down and therefore it is useless. Avoid the headache, INVEST in either the Smart Mouse or the Trackpad for only $20 more. Knowing this, Mac should fix this problem.
