Pros Great battery life, very responsive, works perfectly with my mac
Cons none that i could find
Summary For only using two AA batteries, this thing gets great battery life. The scroll wheel is a little small but after a couple minutes of use, I got used to it and found it very useful. The customizability options on this mouse are perfect for use with my macintosh. Apparently it doesn't use optical tracking, something about lasers....but anyways, I found it to be more responsive than what apple says, and apple says it's pretty dang good
Pros It's pretty and it works well in the Mac OS.
Cons Nowhere near ergonomic, side buttons require too much pressure to use, battery case lock flimsy and scratches surfaces, scroll ball must be cleaned monthly. Nearly useless when running Windows in Bootcamp or Parallels.
Summary Although Apple pioneered the use of the computer mouse, the company has never made an attractive, comfortable, or highly functional one, and the Mighty Mouse keeps the underwhelming tradition alive. I've owned this mouse over a year; so unlike Apple Fanboys who gush over products five minutes after they've owned it, I'm qualified to complain. Ergonomics basically don't exist because the uncomfortable pod shape forces your wrist into a sharp angle. Pressing the side buttons requires lifting your wrist and pushing hard at the same time. The battery case lock is flimsy; and after one year of usage, I'm concerned that it will break one day soon. The case lock also scratches your desktop if you put anything more than extremely mild pressure on the mouse. Battery life sucks. Even long-life batteries last only about two months.
But the worst thing is the scroll ball. Ironically, this was my favorite part of the mouse when I first got it?for about six months, vertical and horizontal scrolling were effortless. Then one day, the ball didn't work anymore. I figured the sensors were dirty, but couldn't find anything on Apple's website about how to clean them. A quick Google search proved this is a problem with the Mighty Mouse engineering, and wiping the ball repeatedly with an alcohol swab fixes the problem. Well, it did, anyway. I have to clean the scroll ball monthly for it to function properly. Turns out the material used for the ball basically scrubs the dead skin cells off your fingertips and collects them inside the mouse. This is a major product design failure on Apple's part.
Finally, the mouse barely functions inside Windows.
I've read the bad reviews regarding Apple's new touch-sensitive Magic Mouse, but regardless of its problems, the simple fact that it doesn't have a scroll ball anymore makes it better than the Mighty Mouse. If you're torn between the older and newer models, suck it up and deal with the Magic Mouse's faults. Of course, you could always get an after-market mouse, but then you wouldn't have the all-important fruit logo on top.
Pros Works great first 6 months
Cons Planned obsolescence.
Summary The mouse works great, at first. Yet as time goes by, I began to notice that the button on top skipped more and more. A little research and I find that it's a dirt trap and that cleaning is not in the minds at Apple. While not impossible, it is difficult to open it (part of it is glued together) to clean it. Planned obsolescence? I was expecting the mouse to last at least a year...
Pros Looks, bluetooth integration
Cons Right button, accuracy
Summary I got the wireless mighty mouse for home, thinking it would look nice on my desktop. As it turns out, that's all it's good for.
My (very big) gripe with this mouse is how unresponsive and inaccurate it is. When I try to hit a link, I really need to spend a lot time focusing on getting the pointer over the link.
My mouse pad is fine - and I've tried a few just to be sure. I also tried moving the mouse closer to my Macbook - but Bluetooth should be fine from a distance of 2 feet, right?
In general, I think the Mighty Mouse underperforms every wireless and wired mouse I've used on PCs, and I'm changing it to a Logitech or Microsoft as soon as I get done typing.
Now I just have to use it 1 last time to hit this "submit" key...
Pros Scroll Ball is excellent and I just love the minimalist design
Cons My hand hurts after a while due to the shape.
Summary I've been waiting for the wireless mighty mouse to come out ever since the wired version was launched.
The only major gripe I have about all apple mice is the shape. For me it's not very ergonomic and after about 10mins of use I start to get very bad pain in my hand and wrist (hence the use of a trackball most of the time). My logitech V270 is far better in this respect, but lacks so much in comparison.
Overall I like this mouse and the ability to scroll in all directions is a godsend. Just make it a bit more ergonomic and you'll have an excellent product.
