    Problems for me are the fact that it still requires you take your left finger off the surface to right click and the ergonomics are lacking. It's a pain to hold and whilst two finger swiping to the right works it's much harder to do the same gesture in the reverse direction.

    assuming right handed operation.

    it's a toss up for me as using one would free up my USB port as I use a Logitech Nano VX but I think I can live with one less USB port for the better ergonomics that mouse has over the Apple Magic Mouse

    its a good mouse, but its not for everyone. It also take a little bit of getting used too.

    I don't know about you guys, but I hated having the sharp aluminum edge digging into my thumb when I was using the Magic Mouse. No way I'm leaving the VX/MX series of mice for that thing.

    i was contemplating it, but after reading allot of reviews similar to this i'm going to pass, my biggest complaint that would sway me is lack of a 3rd click (scroll click for me) which allows me to open links in a new tab in safari, i could not function without that lol

    my rocketfish is bluetooth and i LOVE it, its ergonomic, accurate, and best of all got it for $15 @ BestBuy :-D

    I have a rocketfish sitting in my desk drawer. It's a nice mouse except for the clicking scroll wheel. I ditched it for a Revolution, partially because the scroll wheel noise just irritated the crap out of me.
