A nice mouse but can be a pain
5 August 2011
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. A multi direction ball replacing the usual 'up and down' wheel that allows you to move in any direction within a page or document with minimal effort.
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. This certainly isn't the case with the Apple Wireless Mouse - it's a Zen-like and minimal little article which wouldn't look out of place inside a museum of modern art.
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......
Summary: I bought an imac with a mighty mouse over 2 years ago and the mouse's roller ball stopped working after about 5/6 month's, I have just put up with the fault and have tried to get into it to clean it but this is not possible. All the other features are good and that is generally why I have stuck with it for so long, but I am now looking to replace it with something that works.
Typical Apple minimalism with a dose of acquired taste
4 July 2009
Excerpt: Apple's fondness of minimalism and styling has perhaps reached it's peak with the Mighty Mouse. It does not have the typical two buttons and a scroll wheel, instead it has the scroll ball, two side buttons and the touch-sensitive top. The genius of this design is also perhaps it's failing. To right click you have to ensure you lift your finger off the left side of the top and press on the right side. This takes some getting used to and I know people can be put off by it.
Summary: Had this mouse for about two weeks and can honestly say it's no better than a conventional mouse. Sometimes drops the signal while navigating a webpage for no reason, requiring a re-boot. The buttons are confusing - even after two weeks daily use Can never remember to switch it off by sliding that tacky plastic hatch underneath it (I mean come on!) Fortunately it sits still on my desk when not in use so the batteries are still ok.
Excerpt: as you might have guessed, i'm an apple fan. since getting my first mac last year i've slowly been intergrating myself into the brand and now i can't imagine ever going back. the mighty mouse is my latest acquisition, courtesy of a friend of mine, another mac addict. previously i was using a standard scroll mouse with a ball, which continually was clogged with dirt and felt grubby next to my shiny white mac. mm. in comes the mighty mouse.
Summary: This is perhaps the weakest part of my new mac. Although , due to the great software , it offers multiple options to control the screen , the wheel can break and if that happens it is not covered by the insurance. Thankfully amazon were very kind to send a replacement ,but it should not have broken so easily. Otherwise it feels very light and responds very quickly making very easy to switch from application to another. Needs updating.
