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.

A Mouse in the House!

Comments about Apple Wired Mouse:

I always thought a mouse in the house was a bad thing but, how did I know that without the mouse, in the house it would not be a wonderful thing!!! I had this "thingie", but no mouse! Heavens to Betsy, lo and behold I saw an AD from B&H and yee gads, my problem was solved! B&H had a mouse to solve my poor "thingiies" problem. The problem was solved. Put the mouse to the keyboard that made the wholeblasted thing work!!! My Computer was complete, just by having a mouse in the house!!!!!

Works for me

Comments about Apple Wired Mouse:

I bought the mouse for my Mac Mini. The scroll ball takes a little getting used to. The mouse is very light, but works just fine. I just ordered a second one for an older mac mini I have.

Does what it needs to do

Comments about Apple Wired Mouse:

I like the wired mouse for my iMac as once i awhile batteries go dead or Bluetooth will lose connectivity. Without a mouse or Touch pad things become quite difficult on an iMac. The wired mouse becomes critical then. I just don't like the little ball, would MUCH MORE prefer a roller.

A mouse for those with challenged hands

Comments about Apple Wired Mouse:

The typical Apple wired mouse. What makes it special is the small roller ball on top that works well for my mother's neuropathy plagued hands.

excellent and would repurchase

By jw

Comments about Apple Wired Mouse:

very smooth scrolling, very accurate, very fast
pretty much everything you want in a mouse
had previously used a logitech windows mouse in the past.
on a mac computer, the apple mouse can be configured to have a left and right mouse button, which is great.
this mouse is scrolls better and is more accurate than prior logitech mouse

Comments about Apple Wired Mouse:

Batteries don't last and you can't use it when it is plugged in, the way they designed it stinks.

    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.
