Summary: My mouse came with my brand new swanky iMac that I bought last March. Unfortunately over the past 6 months, the scroll wheel has got progressively worse. After frantically rubbing on the scroll-wheel with my sleeve hundreds of times to try to get it to work, it just doesn't work anymore.
Summary: So seeing as Apple decided to only put 2 usb ports on a macbook, I expected that the mighty mouse would eliminate the need to cut your USB port availability in half by offering a usable bluetooth mouse......
Summary: I replaced my wired MM after about a year when the much documented 'fluff on the scroll wheel' problem started happening every couple of hours. There's a video somewhere that shows you how to take your MM apart and clean it. I've watched it and done it so you don't have to.
Summary: Apple need to work on the design of this mouse. I have 3 main problems with it, smallest first. 1- Top-trackball issues. Mine gummed up eventually just like everyone else's. The turn-it-upside-down-and-roll-it-around-on-something-clean advice does work, but only temporarily.
Summary: I've had my mighty mouse for a couple of years now, and while it looks lovely, I'm moving on. I had the classic trackball issues - it is possible to snap the case to open up the mouse and clean it, which I found works pretty well. However, I need a left click that works.
Summary: ...in that it's pretty to look at but has issues. I'm a big fan of many of the products that Apple make but this one is not one of them. In general it works well and Apple's Bluetooth stack makes it easy to use, but I frequently find; 1- The scroll ball gets clogged up and ceases to work.
Summary: After 4 months of use at work, I'm now suffering RSI tendonitis otherwise know as tennis elbow (something I have never had before). The low height of the mouse means my hand is never quite resting on it.
Summary: I recently made the conversion from a top-spec PC to a top-spec Mac (no debates please!!) - and all is well, apart from the so-called 'Mighty' Mouse. I find the whole 1-button thats actually 3 buttons, a bit annoying.
Summary: Really disappointed with this mouse. It has only lasted 3 months. the trackball does not scroll up. Very surprised on how poor and robust this product is. Very expensive product and poorly built.
