Disappointed

Lloyd R., Amazon
2 December 2010
  • Summary: My apologies to those folk who really like this unit, but there were just too many things that didn't work for me. The SlimBlade Trackball's buttons are placed under the four plastic flaps. You press the flap and it presses the button.

Please listen to the masses Kensington!!!

B. Doyle, Amazon

  • Summary: I love or is it now loved Kensington products. I love my old Kensington trackball. Had it for ten years. When I saw this slimblade I preordered it right away. Figured I would treat myself to a new toy. I liked the idea of the ball being a bit smaller and smoother. Boy I should have waited.

It stinks

Susan Murtaugh "Artist", Amazon
8 August 2009
  • Summary: And so it sits next to my computer, hopefully waiting for software that will make it work. WHY didn't I listen to other reviewers. I wanted it for the more ergonomic profile, which it has. But it Doesn't work, it's not controllable at ALL, a sheer failure for Kensington.

  • Summary: Trackball works fine. Unable to custom program the keys to something more usable than what is provided by Kensington. Very poor software interface. I don't recommend this to anyone.

Poor design overpriced

  • Summary: I read all of the reviews of this product before buying this product. I didn't think that the fact that the buttons weren't programmable would be an issue, because I do word-processing, Photoshop, and Powerpoint, and I never play video games.

Decent hardware, miserable miserable miserable software/drivers

Amazon Customer, Amazon
12 March 2009
  • Summary: I'm going to have to side with most of the other reviewers. The hardware design on the trackball is fine, but the software shortcomings outweigh any hardware advantages. I'm a long time mouse user (love the Logitech MX Revolution) and switched to the Logitech Trackman Wheel at work to save my wrist...

The ball does NOT do it all!

steve_uk, Amazon

  • Summary: This product is far from the 'ball does it all' claim that Kensington holds as part of their description. I am running Lion 10.7 and the ball does not control the volume it iTunes, and the buttons are also very limited..
