Still the only trackball worth owning.

Samuel R., Newegg
24 June 2015
  • Summary: I have been using Kensington Expert trackballs since 1991 and as long as they keep making them, I will keep buying them.
  • Pros: Precise in a way that no normal mouse ever can be. Smooth and precise scroll wheel. Very high quality, I have been using the same trackball since 2010. Much less stress on your hand than a normal mouse.
  • Cons: Requires frequent cleaning, it even needs to be taken apart from time to time to keep it clean.

a wonderful, if not chunky mouse

Henry S., Newegg
20 June 2015
  • Summary: Overall for the 60 ish bucks I spent on it, I say it's a pretty decent mouse, it's ready straight out of the box, it does all it needs to, and works perfectly with the programs I've needed it for, so overall despite some quirks I'm content with my purchase and suggest considering the mouse, or...
  • Pros: I used the basic orbit for the past many years, and only ordered this because the buttons finally wore out, using this is a blast compared to it with the added four buttons being remarkably handy and the scroll ring allowing me to play the games I couldn't previously due to the orbit grey's lack ...
  • Cons: I found it awkward using at first due to it's design choice, and after reading a review stating the cushion it comes with for the wrist was rather bad I see why now, it attatches with two pegs that hook beneath the mouse, the pad isn't quite properly molded and leaves a weird gap, deciding to tak...

Essential for Editing

Matty Matt, B&H Photo
19 June 2015
  • Excerpt: Finally got one on sale! I use this trackball primarily with Pro Tools for audio editing. For longer editing sessions, the large trackball and wrist rest help keep my wrist from getting strained! My only gripe is the scroll wheel... It's oddly stiff and loud.
  • Pros: Accurate Controls, Ergonomic Layout, Fast Response, Smooth Movement
  • Cons: Pricey, Stiff Scroll Wheel, Tough To Get Used To

Seriously...

Rob, B&H Photo
19 June 2015
  • Excerpt: I like trackballs and I read that this was one of the best... but the feel of the scroll ring ruins the entire experience. I like the idea of the scroll ring and properly implemented it would make this a slam dunk.

Still, a lot better than a mouse

IOLO, B&H Photo
16 June 2015
  • Excerpt: I'm a little ambivalent - I've owned this very thing before. Thougfh it looks identical, this one seems a little stiff, even clunky -the laser that tracks the ball is so bright I am afraid it might blind me if i'm not carefull - however, the button function combinations are terrific, as before, and...
  • Pros: Accurate Controls, Button Combinations, Easy To Clean, Ergonomic Layout, Fast Response, Smooth Movement

my favorite input device

Scarhead, B&H Photo
16 June 2015
  • Excerpt: I've been a fan of Kensington trackballs since the mid-90s with the Turbo Mouse. Eventually they die and I buy another. This Expert Mouse adds the scroll ring which is useful. I use a MacBook Pro and process tons of pictures in Lightroom/Photoshop.
  • Pros: Accurate Controls, Easy To Clean, Ergonomic Layout, Fast Response, Smooth Movement
  • Cons: Scroll Ring Not Smooth

Great product

MiamiMark, B&H Photo
13 June 2015
  • Excerpt: I used a Kensington trackball for years and years. This newer style and version is just as good as the older ones. The wrist pad is a nice touch. The fact that they are cheaper now than 5 years ago is an added bonus
  • Pros: Accurate Controls, Ergonomic Layout, Fast Response, Smooth Movement

Good but not great

Chino the Lightroom User, B&H Photo
12 June 2015
  • Excerpt: I want to like this thing. As others stated its greatest shortcoming is the scroll ring, it sucks really bad. It's almost like it was designed to suck, with regularly spaced detents that make it an unsmooth scrolling experience. The actual trackball is great.
  • Pros: Smooth Trackball
  • Cons: Have To Re-open Preferenc, Scroll Ring Sucks

I love Kensington Trackballs

KEAW, B&H Photo
2 June 2015
  • Excerpt: I love the Kensington Trackballs as my hands do not get tired using and they provide for much easier screen accuracy in my work. Only downside is the rings on these models isn't as smooth as I'd like, but functionally it works great.
