  • Excerpt: This is my second 4-Button USB Expert Pro Mouse - Trackball. I still use my first one and bought this one for my media manager. It eases here Carpel Tunnel Syndrome and makes her more productive. The set up is easy. The controls are easy. The ball must be cleaned on occasion and the dust must be cleaned from the ball receptacle.

The Best

Michael G., Newegg
18 February 2015
  • Pros: I've been using one of these for over ten years - yes, the same one! They are built like a tank, and once you get used to one, you will NEVER use a mouse again. This is simply the best pointing device ever made, period.
  • Cons: Expensive - but you get what you pay for.

Carpel Tunnel No More

8 February 2015
  • Excerpt: When carpel tunnel syndrome threatened my mousing hand and thereby threatened my livelihood, I bought a 4-Button USB Expert Pro Mouse Trackball. I did my homework first. I have had mine for five years. When my TV media manager complained of a similar aliment I immediately bought her one and she too has found much relief. It is easy to install and easy to use.

My solution to tendonitis!

KE, B&H Photo
13 January 2015
  • Excerpt: Until someone told me about this product, I was unable to use an external mouse. Every one I tried brought on painful bouts of tendonitis! This limited the kind of keyboard I could use. I was tearing my hair out over unsatisfactory touch pads and other such solutions. Occasionally I knock the trackball onto the floor and have to crawl around my office to retrieve it. Other than that, no downside to this product!

Awesome product

Backwards Me, B&H Photo
26 December 2014
  • Excerpt: I had the first version of this. When i received my new 5k iMac from B and H it was the first accessory I purchased. Fluid movement, it really maximizes efficiency especially on a large or multi monitor(s). I am a professional video producer and photographer and it is a great tool. The scroll ring takes a few days of good use to really break in, but other than that it is perfect right out the box.

Efficiency & Flexibility

Radar, B&H Photo
4 November 2014
  • Excerpt: Have been using Kensington Trackballs for years because they require only the footprint space; no moving the mouse around. Trackball movement can be programmed for rapid cursor movement or for precise, minute movements. 4 buttons can also be programmed, e.g. one for click, one for double click, one for click & drag, one for right button menu; the buttons can further be programmed for chording (using two buttons at the same time) for even more operations.
  • Pros: Accurate Controls, Easy To Clean, Ergonomic Layout, Fast Response, Flexible Options, Programmable, Smooth Movement

Flexible Comfortable Mouse

Nate the Great, B&H Photo
4 November 2014
  • Excerpt: I bought this mouse to alleviate wrist/hand pain I have been experiencing for the past year doing computer work. I work with AutoCAD software daily, and finding a mouse that provides easy access to most common functions in a comfortable form is difficult. This mouse features a large trackball (size of a plum) that is easy to manipulate with either a couple fingers, a thumb, or even the entire palm, and the motion is quite natural.
  • Pros: Ambidextrous, Customizable, Ergonomic Layout, Smooth Movement
  • Cons: Uncomfortable

Unwieldy big. I don't know why I didn't expect that

mikhail g., Newegg
8 October 2014
  • Summary: No, ergonomics was not a goal set in mind when Kensington made this mouse. I'm not sure what goals they actually set because it's almost unwieldy. I'm coming to the Expect Mouse from Logitech's Trackman Marble, which is far from ideal itself, but it has ergonomics on its side, and moving from that to this is not pleasant. With the included wristpad my hand rested heavily on an uncomfortable part of my wrist.
  • Pros: -Symmetrical trackball WITH A SCROLL WHEEL! Logitech, please take note. -Firmware that allows for simultaneous clicking to add further functionality, ala middle click and 6th click. The firmware is good enough give you lots of options here. -Could probably kill someone with it if I needed to defend myself against an intruder.
  • Cons: -Massive. I have small hands, and I could not find a comfortable way to rest my hand on this mouse to be able to reach all four buttons. -The button layout, and I had a feeling this would be the case, is not economical what so ever. It simply was not designed for the top buttons to be reachable with the hand in a resting position. -The buttons are too heavy to click, and especially to hold. -The wristpad is laughably bad. Too firm, never tested for actual use and as s...

RealBambi "Cascadia Resident", Amazon
31 August 2014
  • Summary: It works fine, but the trackball is pretty high and I have to strain my fingers to use it. The trackball is also rather slow. The right and left mouse buttons work great.
