Summary: The worst part is the battery drainage. The mouse itself isn't that bad. If you want this mouse I would recommend going back to the corded version.
Pros: 360 ball gives you an amazing view of everything. It's wireless capabilities a very convenient.
Cons: This mouse burns through batteries faster than any other wireless mouse I've ever used. Also, because of it's design you can't click and then lift the mouse to reposition it. Once you lift the mouse off the table it unclicks. One more thing is that you can only click left or right but not both. I...
Summary: I really wanted to like this mouse. The right clicking took some adjustment but I eventually got there. I used Mousefix to tone down the acceleration. BUT THE WHEEL is so flimsy. There's a definite tracking issue when moving sideways that are not encountered when scrolling vertically.
Pros: Matches my Mac Mini. Aesthetically appealing design. Bluetooth
Cons: Terrible input lag. Average tracking. (not very accurate) The scrollwheel is an utter disaster.
Cons: Very slow, doesn't feel as accurate as the wireless mouse with my PC. The design is not good either, it doesn't contour to your hand. It's as if they paid more attention to the aestetics fo the design more than they did the fit of your hand. Don't waste your money, very aggravating mouse.
Summary: I'm currently using this mouse as I type. I have owned two of them now and each has lasted _maybe 5 months before the mouse ball has rendered itself useless. When the ball actually works, the mouse is a beaut and the mouse ball is actually better and more sensitive than any other I have ever owned,...
Pros: Easy to use (of course), the mouse ball (when it's working)
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.
