Summary: Save yourself $60 and buy some other wireless mouse with two seperate mouse buttons and a wheel.
Pros: I don't know. It clicks I guess.
Cons: Where do I start. First of all, you can only right click or left click. You can't click and then lift up your mouse and reposition it. The mouse ball is super sensitive an jumps all over the place when you so much as touch it. The batteries have about a month life. The list goes on. There are several design flaws with this mouse. I love apple products which is why I bought this disregarding reviews.
Summary: Very bad design, shame on you for letting this slide by. I'm ashamed of this apple product. I'm going to fire the engineers of the Mighty Mouse.
Pros: Has an Apple logo on it.
Cons: I own one of these mice and have used many of them. They all seemed to have a very sluggish response time with a lack of ergonomics. The bottom of the mouse isn't very smooth and actually feels kind of abrasive when moving even on a smooth surface.

Summary: I've been using Mac gear since the 80s and this is the first piece of Apple gear that I've come across that is fundamentally flawed. I've had three of these things and every one of them failed after a little while, always with the scroll ball ceasing to operate, sometimes intermittently and then terminally though the first one I had, a replacement for a previous non-scrolling mouse, never worked at all for upscroll.
Summary: straight to the point I bought a mighty mouse which side buttons were not working. I have asked to the seller to take this point into consideration and have a new mouse back but I have received no reply. After 1 months the scroll ball stop working.
Summary: Yeah yeah yeah, there's the fancy window changing buttons on the side and of course the handy side scrolling... But it's so sensitive and has a mind of it's own! If like me, you've bought an iMac for editing audio on logic and video on FCP, this mouse will drive you NUTS! It constantly sticks and the cursor has fits and heart attacks on screen, especially when you're doing very precise editing.
Summary: The ball stops working after a few months, and, as others have said, you can't then open it to clean it. Was going to take it back but it seems it happens to all of them so it barely seems worth it.
Summary: Why attempt to 're-design the wheel'?! After approx 3 days, the ball will no longer scroll up-down. Initially, disconnecting, then turning the mouse upside-down & rolling the ball on a piece of material etc, is effective. Initially... Eventually, even this tedious process becomes ineffective & the ball will not scroll up-down. Back to the drawing-board Apple, pronto!
Summary: The mouse looks lovely, but unfortunately it has so many problems: - The tracking is awful, I mean truly appalling. A good test is to move the mouse in little concentric circles - look at the mess on the screen! Compared to my old Windows Sony mouse which was 100% accurate, this thing jumps around all over the place. - There is noticeable lag, perhaps due to the Bluetooth. The cursor keeps moving after you stop your hand, for half a second. Small but annoying.
