Mighty Mouse here, being able to scroll left and right is the biggest revolution for my work flow in a long time. The right click is a little quirky and I really hope Apple just bights the bullet and puts a proper right button on there at some point, but all that aside I can't live without a scroll ball anymore.
Well, MS mouses have this function for years, I think...

I have a pile of mac and other mice all of which were eventually unusable for a variety of reasons.

This is not to say that I find the rig ideal - just the most versatile in multiple levels of programming the button click combination and scrolling options.

I plan to buy another mouse but am a little undecided as to which - I hate scroll wheels but I like the Mighty Mouses trackball however I feel the mighty mouse needs another revision before it is ready.

I've got mixed feelings. My hands are small, and even though I click on the left primary button with my right index finger, apparently I'm just close enough to the center for the mouse to think I'm right clicking, depending on how my finger is turned. But it is to the left of the scroll button, nevertheless.
Is it me? I tend to hold the mouse "loosely" for maximum comfort, so my fingers are rarely extending over the top, and my wrist leans to the right as well. I'm re-training myself, but also considering connecting my third-party multi-button mouse again.
The other comment - something of a question actually - what would be the best way to assign a keystroke (toolbar = esc) to the right click on this thing? I can't for the life of me figure out how to make the secondary button application specific - I'm not sure you can. It doesn't appear to be an option in the preference pane unless I'm missing something.
I also agree that scrolling around the arrange window is great. I'm used to doing this with a space shuttle set to those keys (left hand), but having this at the finger tip is really a time saver.
Why on earth can't I move a fader or knob in Logic with the scroll button though? I've tried this with both DP and SX with no problem, and many of my V-instruments respond to the scroll button as well. Can't believe this wouldn't be a basic feature in Logic.
Sorry to be so long winded.
