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.
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.
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 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.
