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.

I'm not a big fan of the Magic Mouse. I hope Apple keeps this mouse around for awhile.

    Comments about Apple Wired Mouse:

    This is a replacement mouse. The first one worked for two years before it went gonzo on me. I use the computer a lot every day so it gets a lot of usage. So these mice at least in my experience of heavy usage are good for two years.

      Simple and Functional with Excellent Design

      By Hank Bedinger

      from Charleston, SC

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Apple Wired Mouse:

      This mouse is simpler than a lot of the others out there -- and that's good. Do you want to lose what's on your screen or not activate what you want activated just because your finger was one sixteenth of an inch from the optimal spot.

      The the design is excellent and so is its functionality.

      As well, the price for the quality is good.

                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.

                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.

                  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.

                      Comments about Apple Wired Mouse:

                      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.
