HA! Finally mine!

Recommended Posts

Very nice! Good find! It's a good thing I didn't see that auction, or you very well might have found yourself paying $131.01!

 

Good on you!

 

Peace,

Drew

Wow pricey, I have one for my Amiga 3000. I had to purchase the SUN verion to get the mousepad, but it was under $10 shipped for both (hard to find the mousepad).

 

Guess you wanted one bad if you were going to bid that much.

I actually have two mouse pads for it right now, one the normal size, and one an oversize version! The one in the auction will be my third. And the fact that the mouse and pad are both mint... it's like the auction was made for me!

You paid $40 - for a mouse???

People seem to pay more than that for the Apple Mighty Mouse, given that it retails for £35 in the UK - not that I'd use it if you gave me one, they seem really poor quality.

Actually more like $50 with shipping.

 

It is the ONLY adb-native multi button optical mouse ever made afaik. You occasionally see the ps2 one on sale but the adb one seems quite rare. The one I got is the first one I have ever seen for sale, and I have been constantly watching e-bay and other websites for a VERY long time. I was beginning to give up hope that I would ever find one.

The first auction was mine.

 

The second is not mine nor did I win it or even try to win it. There is a thread about that second auction in the compact mac forum.

 

I sold the grayscale setup because I need money. I am in a very bad situation right now that is about to get worse.

 

I will probably end up reselling the mouse after I've had my fun with it. I'm just like that... :/

Sfunny, I could have sworn the two Honeywell ADB mice on my shelf had two buttons each...

 

Any chance you could post a scan of that mousemat when you receive it ?[:D]]'>

I don't have a scanner, unfortunately. Actually I meant to say it's the only 3 button optical adb mouse. I have also heard of some 2 button optical adb mice. I actually own the kensignton mouse in a box, optical. It works, but technically it's cheating because it uses a usb to adb adapter (which unfortunately does not work on other usb mice, I tried). And it only has one button.

I got the mouse today! It is exactly as it was described, mint condition and it arrived very fast! I will try it out later when I have more time.

Nice. I note that the original owner

couldn't find the original 3.5" software diskette. (This mouse) will still function great as a single-button mouse.

 

You may well be able to make use of something last seen online as:

 

three-button-power-251.hqx

 

The Read Me First! file associated with the control panel found in the above item states that it's the

Macintosh A3 Input Devices

3-Button Power™ Control Panel

.

 

I have a copy locally, and am willing to send it to you if you can't find it elsewhere.
