If you are looking for a day-to-day Apple mouse, the new MagicMouse is the one to get.

These things get gunked up easily and there is no way to take it apart to clean it.

The apple mouse is a very attractive mouse and works well as the spherical trackball easily allows you to scroll up, down and side-to-side very quickly. However, even though I am a big Apple fan and have several Apple computers this mouse tends to be a weak link in an otherwise user-friendly computer environment.

I believe I have just killed my third mouse. These things get gunked up easily and there is no way to take it apart to clean it. So, at the apple store they suggest blowing canned air into it to dislodge the oil and dust that has collected inside. I've tried that and within a couple days the mouse scroller is unusable--AGAIN.

To write this review I actually had to unplug my apple mouse and plug in a cheap Microsoft USB mouse because the Apple mouse was freaking out so bad causing my computer to switch between applications that I couldn't type.

I think if they allowed these to be take apart to clean it would solve the problem but in the meantime I am off to Best Buy to find a new mouse.

Sorry Apple.

Both times the Up scroll function has failed, despite regular cleaning of the scroll ball. When the mouse works, it's great. But as many will testify, it doesn't last. Am using a Logitech until I buy a new cordless "Magic Mouse" and scroll with my fingers instead of a questionably engineered rubber pea.

If you don't want to ever have to clean your equipment (gross!!) don't buy this mouse. If you don't want to read a manual, don't buy this mouse.

From the owners manual: Cleaning Your Mouse and Scroll Ball
Follow these guidelines to clean the outside of your mouse and the scroll ball: Use a lint-free cloth that's been lightly moistened with water to clean the mouse exterior and the scroll ball. Â Don't get moisture in any openings. Don't use aerosol sprays, solvents, or abrasives. If your mouse stops scrolling or if scrolling becomes rough, clean the mouse scroll ball. Rotate the ball while cleaning for complete coverage. If scrolling feels rough, hold the mouse upside down and roll the ball vigorously while cleaning it to help remove any particles that may have collected.

I've got 3 of these, one is 4 years old. When they stop scrolling, I clean them. Usually, however, I clean them before they get that nasty.

This mouse's "middle button" trackball is very easily gunked up and is VERY difficult to clean. The mouse does NOT open, so you have to rub the trackball with a moist rag for what seems like an eternity to clean it. Apple recommends plain water, but only alcohol or 409 can do a good job. This process is required about every week, or more often if you have kids.
Like a lot of Apple products it is pretty but lacks some of the most obvious functional requirements, like ease of cleaning.
It is an unnecessarily high-maintenance item. Other manufactures have scroll wheels that have sensors on the side of the wheel, not on the tread where all the body oils, dirt and dust accumulate. So the technology has improved considerably over the years. Why would Apple revert to such a problematic feature? If you remember mice from the 80's you can recall the bottom trackball that would fill with dirt and make the mouse act erratically. At least back then you could open the mouse, remove the ball for cleaning, and also clean the rollers inside the mouse.

If you can live without the side buttons, just get a Logitech LS1 mouse for $10. That is what I did to replace this expensive mouse.

I cannot tell you how happy I was at replacing this tank of a mouse. After giving the beast a good 6 month trial, when it came packaged with my Mac, the constant cleaning of that little track ball of a scroll wheel, and the vice grip needed to push the side buttons, and the constant miss-right clicking of items that I meant to just left click on; I am over joyed that I finally got fed up enough with purchasing canned air every week to invest half the cost of this thing in to a 12 dollar refurbished logitech lx7 wireless mouse.

I honestly didn't know how hard I was working at working on my computer. The difference is like night and day. The difference could be compared to driving your car versus pushing your car. I'm actually going to save the 14" corded oddity though, to hang as an ornament on my Christmas tree, as one of the worst designs to come out of a company that wasn't going in to bankruptcy, in a long time. I honestly think that the mice with the ball underneath are about equal in frustration generation as this model.

I'm not normally moved to write a review about something as common as a wired mouse, but this one is so well made and so easy to use I couldn't hold back:

I normally use a wireless mouse but for CAD work they can bee a little unreliable. I decided to try an old fashion wired mouse and it was an improvement in terms of no "drop-offs" like I had with the wireless. However it was the fit and function of the mouse that really won me over. The design is simple but really comfortable. The scroll ball looked small to me but it turned out to be very easy to use with little finger stress. I love that the right and left sides are touch sensitive and give me a right and left click. The side buttons were similarly easy to use and positioned perfectly.

All in all just a simple wired mouse, but a perfectly designed one. It's nice that Apple still takes the time to do the little things well.
