    Mighty Mouse Pretty Good, August 6, 2005

    This review is from: Apple Mighty Mouse (Personal Computers)

    1. LEFT and RIGHT CLICKS: The whole mouse body moves down to register a click, so there is a physical click happening (just like the previous Apple mouse). * If you have your fingers resting on the both sides of the front of the mouse and then click, the mouse will register a left (normal) click. * If you have your fingers resting on the left side only and then click, you will get a left click. * If you have your fingers resting on the right side only and then click, you will get a right click. * If you have your fingers only in the middle and then click, you will get NO click. * If you have your fingers on the scroll ball and click, then you get a middle click.

    Basically, this means you need to have your fingers in the right place when you click, except that if your fingers are all over the mouse, then you just click a normal left click. I had trouble getting used to it in 10 minutes, but I think long-term it would work for me. However, when I had other people using my computer, it would probably drive them mad at first.

    2. THE SCROLL BALL: I love this thing. I was able to quickly scroll around a web page and a enlarged photo. The ball seems very natural and works well even with its small size. As you roll the ball, different parts of your finger come into contact with it, making it seems bigger. I was able to scroll up and down a long web page in just one up and down movement of my finger. I have no idea whether the ball will stay clean and hold up in the long run, but it works great out of the box.

    3. THE SQUEEZE BUTTONs: This is probably the weakest link in the mouse. The buttons (one on each side of the mouse) take quite a bit of pressure to activate and are in an odd place that requires moving my hand. In fact, I would pretty much stop what I was doing and concentrate on squeezing. I’m actually a pretty strong guy, so I’m surprised this was so noticeable.

    4. COMPATIBILITY: This mouse can only be programmed with the absolute latest version of Apple’s operating system. That means that unless you’ve bought a new Apple computer or the new 10.4 operating system recently and then downloaded and applied the latest update, you have to rely on the preprogrammed actions for each button. Curiously, people have told me that you can program the buttons on most Windows PCs. I have the latest system, so it’s no problem for me.

    5. DESIGN and FLEXIBILITY: I like the look of this mouse: very clean and white. You can also choose to make this into a one-button mouse or a two-button mouse (if you have the latest Mac operating system or most Windows systems). It seems well made and matches Apple’s keyboard.

    OVERALL, I plan to buy this mouse because I’m a sucker for attratively designed items. I don’t right click very much, but I scroll a lot, and that scroll ball works very well for me.

    A design disaster…, April 27, 2006

    I’m a heavy graphics and presentation editor, and liked the idea of horizontal scrolling.

    Bought four of them for the office, and for the first few months they worked fine. The size and position of the side squeeze buttons takes a little getting used to, not optimal for most people, re-positioning the hand is often necessary. Then the scroll ball started sticking. Followed the recommended instructions to clean it, not much effect though. Surfed the web and found others with similar problems.

    Followed a website advice, took it apart, tried to access the scroll ball directly, but the components are not designed for that kind of behaviour amd re-seating was difficult. One of them now has a non-smooth base, useless to use. The other three are relegated to spreadsheet navigation, as the use for general graphics and imaging work became too frustrating, a scroll ball lock as you are trying to cut and paste or move a complex set of images was happening too frequntly.

    Maybe it is OK for light users, but cannot recommend it as a full-time mouse.

    Mighty Mouse has a major design flaw, November 9, 2005

    The MM scrolls with a rubber ball on the top surface of the mouse. Like most mouses with a ball for scrolling or moving, particles of dust can get inside the chamber where the ball sits. The mice with rubber scrolling balls seem to be especially susceptible to this problem. My mouse worked fine for about 2 months, I loved it. But then the scroll function got erratic. I could feel the ball “skipping” on something inside, which is obviously built up dirt or dust. After a month of this, the mouse no longer scrolls.

    Now, most mouses with scroll balls have an easy way to remove the plate covering the ball, so you can take the ball out and clean it, and the sensors surrounding it. Unfortunately, the geniuses at Apple designed the mouse in such a way that you cannot do this on the Mighty Mouse. So guess what? When the scroll ball gets dirty and stops working properly, you get to THROW THE MOUSE AWAY! Hey, why bother making it cleanable, just give Apple another 50 bucks – it’s DISPOSABLE!

    I’d really like to meet the designers of this mouse and ask them what they were thinking when they put it together. If you want to buy a disposable 50 dollar mouse, buy all means, plunk down the cash for this piece of junk.
