I just ordered two about 20 minutes ago.  :)  Shame you don't have them in black this time around, though.

just what I needed for daily use with my A4000 & love the original checkmark logo :knuddel:..the original tank mouse is still in mint condition and can now go into storage peacefully :)

btw, I'm assuming I can use the scroll wheel with iBrowse 2.4 ?

Received my two mice yesterday.  The scroll wheel does not work at all, not on my A500 or my A2000.  FreeWheel is installed in WBStartup and MX1000.driver is in User-Startup.  Both of these systems work fine with previous scroll mice including the "black" Boing-logo AmigaKit model and PS/2 mice attached through a Cocolino.

While I hope there's just something obvious I've missed, I can only assume that these units are defective.  I've submitted a ticket to AmigaKit.

Here's a short (5 minutes) video showing the issue:

I have a lot of patience for this old hardware, but lately have had a lot of issues with my Amiga projects and other projects that have me feeling kind of bummed.  :(

On a side note, I will pay $$ to anyone who has fully working "black" Boing logo mice available for sale, since those ones seemed to work the best. :)
