Summary: Traditional mouses (mice are rodents) are sure cheaper but this one sure works better, at least for me. It's a bit less than optimal with Linux, but since I primarily use it with Win7, everything works as advertised. Though I've seen some reviews with unflattering things to say about their quality, mine is near perfect and all things work silky smooth. I'm going to buy another one for my wife's machine.
Kensington Expert Mouse Review - The Best Trackball Ever?
Spencer Nunamaker, Amazon
30 August 2012
Summary: Length:: 0:33 Mins here is my video review of the Kensington Expert Mouse. I'm an audio editor, and use it extensively every day. The result is suffering absolutely zero fatigue, and no pain. It's fantastic!
Summary: very very quick shipment. LOVE the kensington expert t-ball compared to my older light-weight (cheaper) logitechs. being a user with very limited feeling and use of my hands and no movement of fingers, the large ball and widely separated big buttons make this unit a dream to use. the substantial weight means it NEVER slides about on the desk.
Summary: I've used quite a few mice over my years, and this is by far my favorite mouse. Does everything I need, and a few things more. One disappointment: a friend of mine has the older version of this mouse, where the trackball was slightly larger, and could be replaced with a billiards ball, which he had done. However, the ball is still one of the largest ones out there, and fits my hand well.
Summary: I found the Kensington to be very comfortable and extremely accurate. It was priced way below local retailers even when taking the shipping into account. I'm glad I spent the extra few bucks to upgrade to the track ball.
kensington track ball a must for graphic designers
11 July 2012
Summary: I've used a kensington track ball from the first day they came out many years ago. This new one is a real refinement over the older ones. You can control the tracking speed much more precise when drawing or moving an object. I use all the latest software such as Photoshop, Illustrator, Strata StudioPro 3D and many more that require precise drawing movements.
Summary: This is the best mouse I have ever had. I am on the computer a lot and my wrist was really hurting from all the scrolling. I do a lot of photo editing and listing products for my online business and I was starting to have serious pain in my hand from my old mouse- the one that came with my imac. I read a ton of reviews and picked this one based on the information on Amazon. I LOVE IT! My pain is down by 90% and this is really a pleasure to use.
Summary: I've owned previous models of the Expert Mouse, and now this one. Let me just try to correct a few points that have been previous mentioned: 1) The trackball needs OIL! Ok, when you first get it, it's rough, they say wait 2hrs and it's ok, or oil it. Neither are necessary. Just take the ball and rub it in your hands for 2 min. The oils from your hand are all that are necessary to have it running blissfully smoothly right out of the gate.
