    Use the softwarte, cant you adjust the pressure? Theres a switch or something on the bottom by the laser I think that you can increase its tension.

    I havent used one, this is just going from memory just check it out.

    I generally like it, but I wish they had just made a proper two button mouse.

    yeah, and IMO the "scroll wheel" is WAY too small, its rather hard to use.

    if you shipped it to them or took it in-store and they couldn't fix it in-store then it got shipped out to the warehouses in cali and usually takes a while.

    I love mine. I switched from Windows just this summer so I never really experienced the old one-click mouse but this mouse does the job great for me. I click the scroll the expose and I press the sides to show the desktop. The scroll wheel is small but in my opinion it scrolls better than the old mouse I use to have.

    mine has broke several times now. the scroll wheel stopped scrolling down, that took a while to fix. now the expose keeps activating, which is supposed to be side click, but sometimes just happens from resting my hand atop the mouse. i loved it at first and thought it was perfect, but after using it for 3-4 weeks it started to fail.

    its probably the worst product apple has out right now, its a piece of shit

    compare it to any normal mouse and its clear why it sucks, the side buttons have no feel to them at all, the right click is tricky to get sometimes if your hand isnt on the thing perfectly, it isnt ergonomic


    its a piece of shit

    Why do people keep buying crappy apple mice and then complaining when they don't have more than one button/every other feature that apple hasn't caught on to?

    I know I'll take the functionallity of my Razer Diamondback with my powerbook over the matching (but crappy) apple mice any day of the week.

    The funny thing is, I have none of these problems. :dunno:

    I actually like mine a lot. The clit on top is genius. The side scrolling is effortless unlike many side scrolling mice. I bought it for work... well, my company supplied the credit card and it was a good purchase. However, I would never buy it again unless it was a bluetooth version and I had a notebook. The reason is that it is too small for my hands and it feels too unnatural to hold. It looks great, but I have large hands and prefer the Logitech cordless mice when spending my own dime as they just fit me better. Now if those only had the Mighty Mouse clit in them, it would be perfect.

    I like the scroll-wheel/button, and the side-scrolling is intuitive and easy.

    I find it comfortable, but I use mice with my fingertips, not the palm of my hand.

    I don't like how you have to lift your finger before you click to activate the right-click (or vice versa if you just right-clicked).

    I also wish blue-tooth were available, and see no reason why it shouldn't be.

    Also, it came standard with my computer. I didn't BUY it, and if it breaks, I'll probably just replace it with a bluetooth, two button mouse.

    I give it a 7/10.
