I waited a long time for the release of the wireless variant of Apple's Mighty Mouse; having been a user of the wireless Apple Pro Mouse for two years, I did not want to sacrifice my wire-free set-up when the original wired Mighty Mouse was announced.

Well, the wait was worth it. Apple Mighty Mouse Wireless is the same size as the wireless Pro Mouse but is made of a more opaque white plastic, which gives it a cleaner look. I was pleasantly surprised to notice that the mouse is lighter than the older wireless Pro Mouse that it replaces. It seems to glide across my desk more smoothly. Oh, and clicking is considerably quieter with the new mouse. (Is this too much detail?)

Functionally, Apple Mighty Mouse Wireless is in a different league from the old Pro Mouse. I no longer have to ctrl-click to access right-click functions within Mac OS and applications. The scroll-ball works wonderfully, and makes navigation (up and down, left and right) within applications and the OS so much quicker. My only complaint is that the ball feels a little on the small side to me.

Additional functions are accessed by either clicking whilst the scroll-ball is depressed or squeezing the sides of the mouse together. These functions, along the basic right/left click and scroll-ball behaviour are programmable from within the new Mouse System Preference panel that is provided on the installation CD.

As with all Apple products, set-up was extremely straight forward. I loaded the software from the enclosed installation CD, powered the mouse and restarted my Mac. Job done. Lost connections, for example due to removal of batteries, are recovered within seconds by Mac OS.

Apple has managed to retain the sleek look of its long-standing, single button mouse whilst cramming in all the functionality of a state-of-the-art, optical, four button, 2D scroll mouse!

Highly recommended.

I got one of these as a replacement for a Kensington Pocket Mouse. Right away I liked the absence of the "tail" and the freedom that gave me. I also liked the more solid, heavier feel (you can adjust the weight by putting in either one or two batteries).

There are no actual left and right buttons. Instead, there's a sort of rocker switch in the base which activates when you press the top of the mouse shell where the buttons ought to be. This takes a bit of getting used to. In particular, you need to avoid resting your hand too heavily on the mouse, which prevents it from rocking correctly.

The multi-directional scroll ball has a very light feel to it - you literally just need to brush it wish your fingertip. It feels fragile and it is: after 5 months of light but daily use the upward scroll function has now become intermittent. Another problem is the button function of the scroll ball. The ball is so delicate that pressing the button to click it invariably means you move the position of the ball slightly, which is annoying if you're trying to click on an item in a list.

The fourth button is built into the finger rests on the side of the mouse. You need to use a lot of pressure to activate it, squeezing the mouse as if you're trying to throttle the life out of it. I guess that's so you don't keep pressing it accidentally while you're mousing, but the difficulty of operating it limits its value for me.

Battery use is reasonable (about 2 months with both batteries installed) but only if you use alkali non-rechargeables. I've tried two types of rechargeable batteries, but I only get about a week's use before the "low battery" warning comes up.

I loved this mouse from the very beginning - its ability to work on almost any surface without a mouse pad is a big plus. Some of the functionality like displaying all open windows by pressing the buttons on the side of the mouse (if programmed) is easier accessible with the mouse. What I find distracting every now and then is that it's easy to press the side buttons when you do a drag&drop operation, so depending on what functions you have programmed this can be very annoying. The scroll ball seems a little too small but feels right when you get used to it. Sometimes the horizontal movements are a bit too rapid but I assume that can be adjusted with the mouse configuration. Overall a good device, I don't regret the purchase!

excellent!! best BT mouse available!!! 7 Oct 2006
By Miguel Ali - Published on Amazon.com
The BlueTooth Mighty Mouse is a WONDERFUL improvement over the original Mighty Mouse and clearly, the best bluetooth mouse available ---- a direct comparison to other mouse's available -

PROS:

1. BETTER THAN THE ORIGINAL MIGHTY MOUSE --- I liked the original (wired) Mighty Mouse, but many of the buttons were difficult to use --- the scroll wheel had a tight grip and the side buttons were impossible to use --- this new Mighty Mouse has a much better scroll wheel (ball) that is a lot looser and easier to use --- in addition, the side buttons are very functional, in addition to all the other buttons

2. BUTTONS ---- I can't stand mouses like the Logitech ones that are filled with so many buttons, that you basically can't help but to press the wrong button here and there --- the Mighty Mouse has an excellent set of buttons, not too many, and not too little --- best of all, they are all laid out perfectly, with software that let's you decide which button will designate what function --- the best set of buttons and layout available on any mouse!

3. LASER TRACKING ---- one reason I often do not use bluetooth mouses is because the tracking is unstable --- the mouse can't keep in line with movements --- however, I'm very pleased with this Mighty Mouse --- the tracking really does feel like a solid wired mouse, making me believe that Apple really invested a lot of good engineering into making the tracking of this mouse excellent

CONS ---

1. SOFTWARE --- the software is easy to use and setup, however, it doesn't seem to work with OS X Panther (10.3) --- so if you are not using Tiger (10.4) then you may wanna reconsider purchasing this mouse, unless Apple gives software for 10.3, but doesn't seem so?

2. HOCKEY PUCK --- personally, I miss the hockey puck mouse, from the original iMac --- but hey - I think they're more Republicans in Massachusetts than there are hockey puck mouse lovers, within this entire world --- so I guess it's personal preference

overall --- it's a great mouse and the price is reasonable

if you are big on right clicking and scrolling, then don't hesitate to buy it

LOVE AND PEACE TO YOU ALL!!!

Overall poor design... 19 Aug 2008
By T. Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Pros: Elegant and simple, fits the Mac theme. Appears to be a single button mouse ala the old Mac, but actually has multiple multiple button input hidden by the enclosure, although they can be a bit clunky. (left, middle, right, grip buttons). Terrific scroll ball - this is the best and the worst feature (and why I've put up with the mouse as long as I have so far). Once you get used to the top ball for both horizontal and vertical scrolling, you won't want to use any other mouse. I think it's the best idea for a mouse I've seen design wise.

Unfortunately, it's a case of terrific design and poor engineering. There isn't much in the way of choices when you need to clean the ball. Over time the oils in your hands attract enough dust that lodges in the rollers that surround the scroll ball on the inside. The ball will then become unresponsive in one or more directions. The apple site, and other sources on the web give some recommendations on cleaning this which works for a while. However, eventually you have to take the mouse apart when none of the other tricks you find on the web get that darn scroll wheel working.

While this can be done, it's not easy and easily leads to a broken mouse. One ring on the bottom in fact must be broken no matter what. It's awkward to work on the tiny parts (especially with large hands), and I've had trouble more than once getting the case back on properly so that it can register the right mouse button input. After the wired and now the wireless version both having problems with the scroll ball it's time to stop throwing money away on them; I'll be replacing mine shortly.

Another problem is that the single piece enclosure, while cute, means you can't actually simultaneously press both the left and right button at the same time. Also, it can be awkward to find the right spot to make the mouse right click functionality work.

I tended to use the grip buttons very seldom, but this is in part because I have a large hand. I did find it handy for jumping into expose.

I loved the bluetooth. I loved the scroll ball -- when it functioned. I didn't care for the right button since it was difficult to use; it's impossible to push both the left and right buttons at once. Maintenance was definitely a problem. All in all, I'd recommend you pass on this mouse unless you prefer form over function. There is no question that this is one elegant mouse. Now if only it just worked.
the good and the bad 20 Sep 2009
By High Tech Tom - Published on Amazon.com
the mouse is great when it's new, never had a complaint, looks great, works great... and then the same old scroll ball slow death everyone all over the internet is describing, and eventually you're looking for another mouse... while you could switch to another brand, you have to bear in mind you lose features like the recognition of buttons other than left/right click and the battery level feedback, so while this mouse lasted almost two years, and frustrates you to have to put down another $70 to replace when the scrolling finally quits for good, just remember not to waste your money on people trying to sell you this same $70 mouse for $100 or even $120 like some of the people out there, even BestBuy couldn't find a way to mark this thing up to $100 and their prices suck compared to Amazon most days

Unresponsive and connection is dodgy 24 Aug 2009
By New England Yankee - Published on Amazon.com
I would LOVE to LOVE this mouse. In typical Apple fashion, it's elegantly designed. The scroll ball is a joy to use. The left/right click functionality works flawlessly - and without using buttons. So what's not to like?

1) Dialing in the response in System Preferences right up to the max still gets you only so-so responsiveness. (There is aftermarket software that can help with this, but you shouldn't have to go there.)

2) Connection drop after connection drop. Alternatively, a brief delay in your system picking up the mouse after not using it for a while.

Those are deal killers. Replaced! - with a Logitech mouse.
