At Last, the Trackball for Me

Baron Rojo, B&H Photo
29 April 2014
  • Excerpt: I've never liked mice. While first shopping for trackballs, I decided that one with the largest ball I could find would be best for me. But trackballs weren't very popular at the time, and the Logitech Marble Mouse was the best choice I could find. It's still sold as the Trackman Marble and B&H stocks it; I've never had any complaints about mine, but now that a better selection is available and it's finally time for a change, the Kensington Expert Mouse trackball proves...

Very good product.

  • Excerpt: 4 Stars because the driver is not Win 8.1 compatible. Cannot program the two upper buttons. Otherwise, works well. Replaced a 10 year old Expert Mouse 4.0. Necessary as the large track ball does not aggravate carpel tunnel.
  • Pros: Accurate Controls, Ergonomic Layout, Fast Response, Smooth Movement

  • Excerpt: I spend 4-6 hours a day at the computer and have arthritis. This trackball really helps alleviate some of the pain/discomfort in the wrist area from mousing around during long periods. Having programmable buttons helps me to work quicker.This is a replacement for a worn out unit.
  • Pros: Comfortable Design, Glides Smoothly, Great Features, Works On Any Surface
  • Cons: Takes Getting Used To

Reasonably well thought out

14 October 2012
  • Excerpt: In a perfect world, Kensington might have made the buttons smaller and located them above (behind) the ball to keep hand and finger movements less busy. Kensington does solve some of this by allowing the user to choose the 'click' functions of all 4 buttons however. For those of you who notice and take exception to the slight ball drag I experianced at first, something seems to permanently break in or polish within several minutes and the ball rolls effortlessly from...

Very nice device

  • Excerpt: I use the expert pro mouse 8 hours a day five days a week. It is easy to get used to, very comfortable and is very fast and accurate. I am somewhat of a twitch gamer and this holds up to mice once you are used to it. The programmable buttons are nice. Cons- loud clicks, scroll wheel could be smoother.
  • Pros: Accurate Controls, Easy To Clean, Ergonomic Layout, Fast Response, Smooth Movement
  • Cons: Loud Clicks, Sticky Scroll Wheel

  • Excerpt: I have always preferred trackballs over mice. This trackball is great. It is important to have a large ball. The ball moves smoothly. The scroll ring is a real plus, and it is very convenient.

The Best Gets Better

  • Excerpt: I've used the Expert Mouse Pro in all our studios for years. I literally couldn't design or edit audio and film without it. Having used every input device imaginable I still don't understand why the trackball is such a minority product. Mice are deficient in so many ways to a trackball- and this trackball is even better than before. The new optical tracking is far beyond the previous Expert Pros in glide and feel and control.
  • Pros: Accurate Controls, Better than the Previous, Easy To Clean, Ergonomic Layout, Fast Response, Smooth Movement
  • Cons: Horrible Scroll Ring

Not bad

C G, B&H Photo
29 February 2012
  • Excerpt: I was worried about all the software support problems that others had but everything worked right out of the box, without installing anything, on both Win7 and MacOS. Once you get some finger oil on the ball, it's ridiculously smooth. So A+ there. I wish it was a bit more ergonomic and wasn't shaped to flare your wrist up so much, so I deducted a star. I'll have to find some custom solution to solve this. Otherwise it's a great trackball.
  • Pros: Accurate Controls, Fast Response, Smooth Movement
  • Cons: Uncomfortable
