Still, a lot better than a mouse

IOLO, B&H Photo

  • 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...

Good but not great

Chino the Lightroom User, B&H Photo

  • 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

  • Summary: The Good: After ordering this item along with a motherboard from this site i was so surprised to see it sitting on my doorstep the next morning, also exited because they were the last pieces of my most recent build. The packaging for the mouse was decent if not better than most.

  • 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.

Works good, some things to consider.

  • Excerpt: Trackball works great I'm pretty happy with my purchase but there are some downfalls. 1. The slide ring is not very smooth 2. I have to open the Trackball preferences for my custom settings to go into effect when I unplug my Trackball or turn my computer off. Pretty annoying. 3.
  • Pros: Accurate Tracking, Comfortable Design, Fast Response, Glides Smoothly, Great Features, Works On Any Surface

  • Excerpt: It's only been a week or so using the Expert Pro, and I don't think that's enough time to see if my RSI symptoms return. However, since switching from the Apple Magic Mouse and basic MS mouse I've found: Positives: -I like that I'm encouraged to keep my wrist steady with the Expert Pro, whereas on a...

Lost the ball

  • Excerpt: Since I travel from event to event daily, I was hoping this had a captive ball, rather than one that rolls away everytime I pick it up.

Super Ultra Best Review Evarrr

Brendan C., Newegg
27 May 2012
  • Summary: I use a Mac 10.6. The software seems to work fine, the only minor gripe is that when setting a button to 'scroll lock' (track scroll) using it with the trackball only allows scrolling in the vertical direction, replicating a scroll wheel.
  • Pros: We have used these at our recording studio for ages - they are very versatile and use much less space than a mouse. I've been using a Logitech Trackman Cordless for ages but I finally got fed up with changing the batteries and the poor reception. Honestly, if Logitech made a non-cordless version,...
  • Cons: Kensington has made a lot of compromising design choices in an effort to keep this a dual right and left handed device. The scroll ring is terrible. Kensington goes on and on about how great the 'precise fingertip scrolling' is in their marketing material. Using it mostly requires more than one f...
