    and how the track ball gets dirty and stops scrolling down. :mad: I'm also tired of cleaning it.

    Is there a better mouse that has the same features the MM house? I use spaces, side to side scroll, and squeeze buttons on the sides, etc. Love the features, hate the mouse. :o

    I use my Wacom 90% of the time anyway, but my MX Revo is a hell of a mouse.

    use a notecard to clean it, just cut a strip off and run it around the ball.

    it pulls so much crap out and is better than the upside down rolling method. :o

    I did that for the first one I had, almost a year later, wouldn't clean anymore... and it wouldn't scroll down anymore. That seems to be the only problem. Bought another one in hopes it would last another year before I found something else. Fucker gave out on me in 5 months w/ the same issues.

    Just went and bought a MX Revolution. Seems to do everything the mighty mouse did, and its wireless. Works great... we'll see how much I really like it. :dunno:

    There's a DIY somewhere if you google it. It shows you how to take apart the MM and clean it from the inside. After I did this, it was like a brand new mouse! MUCH better than cleaning it with rubbing alcohol...

    This new method removed TONS and TONS of crap stuck inside where the ball is.

    Anything is better than the MM. Just get something Logitech and call it a day. I've been using the Logitech MX1000 for several years now and it's been great. Expose via programmed buttons FTW!
