    Has anyone else ever experienced issues with the scroll ball on their Wireless Mighty Mouse?

    I bought one back in May and it has already crapped out on me; it won't scroll down anymore. I did get the Product Replacement Plan though through Future Shop so it is getting sent out to be confirmed to be broken then I get a new one.

    But has anyone else had bad luck with these mice?

    The scrollers get dirty easily. unfortunately the mouse is sealed so it's hard to take apart and clean.

    No problems with either my original MM or my BT MM. Purchased both when they first shipped. I think I ran a cloth over the BT MM scroll ball once, since I was cleaning the case anyway. But, neither one has had scroll problems. Just FYI.

    just take a clean cloth, turn the mouse off, turn it upside down and rub the little scroll ball vigorously. That works for me. Also, if you have real problems with it, call applecare, they're pretty good about fixing stuff for ya.

    I had two wired MM's that after a few months, wouldn't scroll down. Annoying!
