it works but not well enough

Reading Mom, Amazon
25 March 2011
  • Summary: It works but takes far too much effort to move the mouse across the screen. I followed the advice of tech support and went to Control Panel> Mouse> mouse properties > Pointer option > Motion to speed it up. It became faster but not fast enough. I tried it on 2 different computers and it was the same on each even at maximum speed. Had to roll the ball many times just to move across the screen; this is too much work for someone who is in front of a computer all day long.

carpal tunnel gone

  • Summary: Being a writer, I'm on the computer every day, & inevitably, my right thumb & wrist started aching. I took pain-killers, bought special gloves & bought about 4 computer mouse, but it kept coming back. I refused to go through an operation like my brother did. I bought an expensive keyboard with built-in pointer--one of those little squares in the middle like a lap top. But the space bar was stiff, & the pointer was inconveniently located, & the pain worsened.

Great idea, not so great implementation

  • Summary: This pointing device is an ergonomic dream - a trackball right where your thumbs would normally rest. Why devote your two must dexterous fingers to pressing the spacebar? You might not want to use it as your only pointing device, but it's a real help when you are mousing around your word documents or web sites, etc. The other reviewer is crazy when he says it's too slow - all you have to do is set the mouse properties to a higher acceleration.

Good idea, but...

shazam, Amazon

  • Summary: This product is a step in the right direction for reducing hand/arm motion - you can use it to point and click without leaving the keyboard. But - the mechanical trackball dpi is too low - it requires too much effort by your thumb(s) to get around. A touchpad is better, but sometimes they're too twitchy.
