    Very good grip. The precise, sharp. Very easy to use ball control. The only negative - the ball quickly enough fouls (3-6 months). Refine you can go upside down mouse on a blank sheet of paper.
    For quality and convenience of 5 stars, with the rapid contamination of 4 stars.

    This would be the best mouse I've ever used, but Apple flubbed it and made it with a mechanical trackball that gets paralyzed by gunk, and is impossible to clean without surgery. Don't believe the cleaning advice, including Apple's, that says you can restore it with external cleaning. This wil keep it going just a little longer. It's a ridiculously, insultingly flawed design, mostly because it is so bad, yet so close to perfection otherwise. This mouse infuriates me. I've gone through three, and am now trying to figure out what to switch to.

      Comments about Apple Wired Mouse:

      Track balls get clogged. Mine was pushing 5 years of use. That's why they've been replaced with wireless designs in most equipment. But my G-5 OS won't accept wireless mouses. B&H had the original track ball mouse I could not find anywhere else. Works great. Should have ordered two.

      Comments about Apple Wired Mouse:

      I use this product everyday for graphic design projects. I did have a wireless that constantly needed batteries! I reused my rechargable batteries for the last time and went back to the old method. Love it! It is less touchy and works smoother for graphic control.

        Comments about Apple Wired Mouse:

        Previously had a wireless mouse for my iMac. But, I was getting tired of feeding the darn thing batteries, and it frequently lost connection with the computer. So, I started looking for a new mouse. Saw an Apple mouse at the University of Washington bookstore, in Seattle - but it was $[$] before taxes. I went on line and B&H had the exact item for $[$] - with no shipping or tax. No brainer. I went with B&H. Besides, I purchased my son's Mac Book from B&H in 2010. B&H is great.

            The mouse is used with a ca 2010 MacPro for which a wireless mouse was supplied. It ate batteries so the wired mouse was the logical replacement. Scrolling in any direction is the best feature.

                  I also got this Apple Mouse with the keyboard and they both were made in China instead of Malaysia. The mouse connector cable has a square design like the keyboard but other than that the mouse seems to work like an Apple product.

                        It got really old trying to clean our 5 year old mouse - you know - rolling it, blowing in it - I even air basted it from my shop air compressor a few times in the last year. It's nice having a new, easy to use mouse again!

                                    Comments about Apple Wired Mouse:

                                    I very much regret switching from PC to IMAC thanks to continuous mouse problems since the changeover a year ago. I purchased the wired mouse because of multiple problems with the wireless, and with a non-Apple mouse. This mouse at least stays connected, but srolls unevenly and requires a pad for even minimal performance. Frequently while scrolling to the left, for example, it jumps completely off the page to the right, or vice versa. Never had a mouse problem with a pc, so I blame Apple technology.
