Nice mouse but has some serious flaws
Anthony C., Newegg

Summary: I've heard from many people that the scroll ball craps out eventually, haven't had that problem yet but this isn't my primary mouse. Luckily, Apple was kind enough to accidentally ship me a second one so I have an extra if such a problem occurs.
Pros: Looks pretty....sleek, nice to be able to have a cordless mouse you could drop in a cargo pants pocket and go.
Cons: Works on bluetooth, so if your pc doesn't have that you're kind of stuck, does not conform to your hand the way a mouse should, the heat sensor is cute but not having a dedicated left and right click button makes it a real pain to use.
Summary: I got the wired with my iMac in December, and when I got a Macbook Pro, I decided to bite the bullet and give this a try. So far, I have not been disapointed. I use my Macs mainly for Final Cut Studio, and when I'm actually working, I use a Microsoft cordless 6000 V2 for editing and a wacom bamboo...
Pros: I wrote the horribly scathing review of the wired version of this mouse, and the wireless is much better than that piece of junk. I use this mainly when I'm not doing anything important, so I don't need two-button mode, which this still sucks in. The cord on the wired Mighty Mouse is absolutely h...
Cons: The track ball is still a g awful (newegg doesn't like me referring to the almighty, apparently) invention (I have had to clean it twice already, not an easy task). Two-button mode is still clumsy and unreponsive, and the track speed and DPI are still too low for my liking. It's also way too expe...
Summary: It lacks the stability that all mice should have these days. The touch concept that apple is pushing into every product shows just how much they care about clicking things. Right and Left clicks should be distinct and I should not have to click something 20 times to get the sweet spot of a right...
Pros: Sleek design Fits fair enough into my hand Scroll ball is an interesting idea (in theory) Came with rechargeable batteries It's bluetooth with decent range
Cons: Bottom plastic wears incredibly fast, if your desk isn't pristine Scroll ball can get dirty quick. I occasionally can't scroll down.. Gets confused with right clicks often. But middle and 'left' clicks work pretty much all the time. Side buttons are hard to squeeze with ease. Best to pinch both s...
Summary: It's a very sexy mouse. It moves kind of slow though. You're of course able to speed up the rate in the OS but by default it moved a little slower. The two way track pad is kind of cool.
Pros: Got it to work in Ubuntu and Vista. I couldn't get it to work on my mac. It wouldn't ask for the paring passkey. Vista worked the best. It took a little xorg configuration to get it to work on every bootup in ubuntu.
Cons: Couldn't get it to work on Mac. Not rechargeable. Made by Apple.
Summary: I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with this mouse. I have used it for about 18 months now, and have experienced a lot of the complaints on here. The scroll ball stops working after a while, due to gunk forming on the rollers inside.
Pros: Vertical && Horizontal scrolling, sleek, small, relatively uncomplicated. Haven't noticed any lag compared to traditional 2.4GHz wireless accessories (couldn't use them because the lag drove me crazy). Encrypted data channel (more important for a keyboard, but what the hey?) I like the relative c...
Cons: As with other comments, the scroll-ball easily experiences problems from dirt. I have experienced some right-click registering problems under more demanding situations.
Summary: A good mouse, but in my opinion, not worth $69. You can get far better Logitech models for the same or less money. To the reviewer below who stated that "Mac sucks", your language and over generalization portrays your experience level, you have obviously never gave Macs a chance.
Pros: Aesthetically pleasing, better than the previous Apple mice. First Apple mouse with two buttons.
Cons: Not the best contoured mouse, not the most accurate.
Excerpt: So once again, apple decided to be clever. They weren't happy with the way computer mice worked, so reinvented it. And what was the end product? The apple Mighty Mouse. With the famous (or infamous) scroll wheel.
Excerpt: The humble mouse (no, not the furry and alive kind... i'm talking about the non-furry and never-been-alive computer kind) can frequently be an over-manufactured device with buttons scattered all over the place.
Get the upgraded version.... if it's anything like the new keyboard it'll be a massive improvement

Excerpt: THE BASICS: Recently supplanted by the 'Magic' Mouse (I wonder what will come next? the Supernatural mouse?!) the Mighty Mouse is still on the market with various retailers for around £10 less (in the region of £40 rather than £50). THE DESIGN: What everyone wants to know with an Apple product......
