I've owned 2 of these Wireless Mighty Mouse for a while. I've bought the 1st one in Sep 2006 together with my MacBook and the 2nd in 2007. I learnt to take care the hard way. This is because I bought the 2nd unit thinking I won't be able fix the rolling ball. I eventually fixed it and since then I have an extra moue. At least now I don't have to carry the mouse with me when I take the laptop with me to the Fac. This is what I learnt from this bad experience: to get a consistent cleaning you'd better wet a paper towel or similar in alcohol and then slide the mouse against the wet towel upside down while spinning the ball. Spinning the ball vigorously against a dry towel can temporally unstuck it but it won't last whereas with alcohol it will work smoothly for weeks or even months.

On regard of the battery life, this mouse can fit 2 large capacity AA batteries, what I really appreciate (I hope AAA type would left aside in any portable device since they run out much sooner and AAA rechargeable batteries usually range from as expensive to far more expensive). Even so I my impression is that this mouse runs out of charge in just a few days, I would say it uses up a couple of batteries in no more than 50 hours of activity. This is a good reason to use rechargeable batteries as I've always done. I moved to rather expensive 4000mAh rechargeable batteries but I didn't notice a big improvement. Therefore my advise is to stick with cheap low-end ones and buy a few more spare batteries for replacement. It could also be that my battery charger doesn't fully recharge the batteries, I should check that but it would mean purchasing another charger.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous until it stops. 28 Dec 2008
The mouse is great. The buttons can all be selected to do different things. I can click the scroll wheel and Expose will be activated. I use the side buttons for Dashboard. Very convenient.

Now the annoying problem: it becomes dirty quick and the scroll ball soon becomes unusable. This is easily remedied however. For all people with the scroll ball issues all it takes is vigourous cleaning. Put a bit of whatever cleaning product you use for your Keyboard and simply scrub over the ball so it. Push into it and spin it round. After you have finished it should then work again.

If it wasn't for this I'd give it 5 stars. Hoping Apple will bring the multitouch to the mouse. Or at the very least update to a new version so that we don't have this annoying problem. White is just a terrible choice for something so frequently handled.

2.0 out of 5 stars some good, some bad 5 Feb 2009
By Aesop
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. This is an annoyance, but only a small one.
2- left-and-right button detection. I'm reasonably forgiving to ergonomic difficulties, but I could seldom make the right-button work. Stopping to poise a finger above the extreme right-hand-edge wasn't working for me, so I got back into ctrl-clicking (Well, I remapped to the trackball-button, really, but you get the idea. A button wasn't working.) Renders the two-button-detection a bit pointless.
3- (And this is important). Eventually you are going to knock a wireless mouse off your desk. This isn't the mouse to do that with. It has a jury-rigged bit of switchgear on the bottom of the mouse that depends on the minute actuation of a bit of bent metal to switch the mouse on and off. When your mouse falls and the battery cover goes spinning off under a bit of heavy furniture, not only have you got to recover said battery cover, but the tiny bit of metal is now bent out of shape and no longer functions properly. The mouse no longer switches on, and my efforts to bend it back into shape only succeeded in voiding my warranty. Occasionally I can get it to switch on for a while, but never for long.

Logitech briefly won my custom by including that marvellous bit of 21st century gadgetry, a proper switch, at the bottom of their bluetooth mouse. But the problems the Logitech mouse has with connecting at login aren't trivial, and I'm not convinced it hasn't been implicated in some crashes that stopped happening when I stopped using it, (the Logitech mouse).

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 26 Oct 2008
Does exactly what is says on the tin. The mouse is responsive enough for most uses (wouldn't use it for gaming perhaps), the scroll ball is a god send with my 12" powerbooks limited screen real estate and the shape is very comfortable.

I have read the problems others have had with the scroll ball. I've thrown mine into bags and not really treated it too well and its still running very smoothly.

The bluetooth syncing is extremely easy too.

Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Apple MIGHTY Mouse! 23 Oct 2008
By BWT
Verified Purchase
I have a MacBook Pro, and I love the tracker pad on it, but this is just a lot more useful.

The programmable buttons allow you to do so much more at the click of a button, and i haven't had any problems with the ball getting damaged, as it is still working fine 5 months after i bought it.

It sync'd with my MBP and was up and running in under 2 minutes, and didnt need any faffing about with CD's etc.

My only criticism would be, that it doesn't automatically re-connect itself with your Mac when you come back into range, you have to click the mouse for it to turn on, and it takes about 5 seconds to be ready for use again, but that is just me being inpatient.

Overall, a great piece of kit, if not a tad expensive, but hey... that's Apple, you get what you pay for, brilliant products.
