Summary: Very restful version of mouse. No need for arm or wrist movement, no arm or wrist tension. Hand rests cupped over the shaped stationary unit, with the thumb moving the large ball, fingers resting on the two click buttons and the scroll-wheel between them.
Summary: I replaced my Intellimouse with this unit. I had gone through at least 3 Intellimice and they kept breaking at or near the cord, just would not function. So I tried this cordless model from Logitech. Batteries last a long time. The unit is overall very functional and quickly becomes seamless.
Pros: The shape is not as comfortable as the Intellimouse, but it doesn't break like it either...
Cons: The shape is not as comfortable as the Intellimouse, but it doesn''t break like it either...
Excerpt: I bought this mouse from PC World about 9 years ago, as I managed to wear out the right hand click button on my laptop touch pad after less than a year after I purchased it! Luckily it was still under guarantee but when I realised that it would cost over £100 to place once the guarantee had run out...
Pros: Durable and long lasting
Cons: Dirt gets stuck on the wheels around the ball !
Excerpt: I bought one of these a couple of years ago and this was my first trackball type mouse after always having used a conventiional mouse and for the first 3 or 4 days using it I called it all the names under sun and absolutley hated it.
Ticks all the boxes the casual computer user needs - points and clicks!

Excerpt: I bought this for use with my laptop, which I use primarily for school work and browsing the web. I was tired of cramping my fingers by using the touch pad on the laptop itself, so I sought a wireless mouse alternative. I have so far been very pleased with this offering from Logitech.
Excerpt: I recieved my Trackman Marble this morning, and I can already say that I would not go back to a standard mouse. I bought the wired trackman as I was getting fed up of my old wireless mouse eating batteries by the week. The use of the trackball is really revolutionary to how I use a mouse.
Excerpt: This mouse is an excellent addition to someone with a computer, but only limited workspace, such as laptops, or mini computers. it feels nice to hold, and fits ergonomically into the palm of your hand.
Excerpt: I have had mine for over almost 10 years, it has been dropped (on a daily basis) chewed by my dog and totally abused. It just broke, no wonder, and I am lost! I have a laptop, it can be used without a mouse,(I prefer not to) I need my ball.
Excerpt: Well lets start off by saying if you've never tried a trackball you dont know what you are missing! Originally designed around the idea that first saw light with arcade games like missile command and Robotron 2084 back in the 80's the trackball seems to be a bit of a niche product but i really cant...
Pros: Reduced risk of RSI , Quicker than a mouse and better for games !
Cons: Not as accurate in Graphics packages such as Photoshop , Paintshop pro !
