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. I miss the old shape and feel of the Intellimouse(the silver model, not the cheap ones), but I am used to this one now.
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 got this wireless mouse to go with my Sony Vaio laptop as the laptop touchpad was a bit freaky. I am absolutely over the moon with this mouse. It is very frugal on cheese (batteries) which last about 3-4 months with daily use. It does have a power button on the base but I never turn it off because it has a sleep function, which must be why it's good on the cheddar!
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 then I quickly went out and bought a mouse - the cheaper option! I think the mouse cost around £20.
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. Having tried to push the whole unit round my desk a few times I was used to it very quickly.
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: I have to be another in the long list of people praising the Trackman because there are simply more cool things You can do with it, worth to be mentioned. I borrowed Trackman Wheel, the previous model, for a few days of tryout, ordered the new one immediately, and I am not returning the borrowed one till the new one arrives. Getting back to the ordinary mouse is too great horror.
Excerpt: I have been using this mouse for over 18 months now and am very pleased with its performance. The overall feel of the mouse is very nice. I've previously suffered from painful fingers after pro-longed periods of use with other mice, but not with this one. Of especial use is the side button that is configurable, but I find the best use is to set this to "double-click". So a single button click opens folders, files etc.
Excerpt: Logitech have an esteemed reputation for building some very cool peripherals, and the Mouseman Optical is one of the coolest to date. The shape is an RSI reducing, made-to-fit-in-the-palm affair. None of this putting your hand on the mouse, you put your hand around the mouse with this one, and hence is very comfortable. Some people might not be happy with the size of height of the rodent, but for me it is perfect.
