  • Summary: Quick and easy setup. Just take it out of the box. Plug it in. Download Kensington Trackball Works and you're set. EARLY IMPRESSIONS: Coming from having owned the best of the best mice and trackballs from Logitech such as my current Marble Trackball, the M570 (which possibly contributed me the De Quervane syndrome I have now) and the Anywhere Mouse, not to mention scores of other mice and trackballs over the years include the 1990s version of the Kengington Expert Mouse...

Best trackball available

  • Summary: I have the other version of the trackball the Expert Mouse. This is even better. I love the spinning of the wheel to scroll. My only problem occurs when I go back to my office and start spinning the trackball on the Expert Mouse and no scrolling occurs. (Have to use the ring on the Expert.) I have read reviews complaining about the software but I am not sure I understand the complaints. The software is completely customizable.

The Slimblade really is better than the Expert Mouse Trackball - why did I wait so long?

Boston, Amazon

  • Summary: I have used the Kensington Expert Mouse Optical USB Trackball for as long as I can remember, avoiding the Slimblade. After a week's use of the Slimblade, I am sorry I waited to try it. It has a smoother action, the same 4 buttons and the same size ball as the Expert Mouse Trackball. The lower profile causes less carpal tunnel discomfort, and I don't have to use the the dopey detachable wrist rest.

Pleasantly surprised

J. Harrell, Amazon
5 October 2012
  • Summary: After reading the early negative reviews about the lack of software support for programmable buttons, I held off on replacing my (non-optical) Expert Mouse Pro that I've loved for years. An upgrade to OSX Lion forced my hand though. I was expecting the Slimblade to feel cheap and junky compared to my old workhorse, but I couldn't have been more wrong...this thing is great! The trackball moves more smoothly than I thought possible and on-screen accuracy is much improved.

Best trackball ever

  • Summary: I have used a trackball with my desktop machines for over twelve years. Until now, my favorite was the Microsoft Trackball Explorer, but I think this one may have it beat. The large, finger-controlled ball, the four programmable buttons, and the twist-to-scroll functionality are all top notch. It takes some tweaking to get things working the way you want, but the result is trackball heaven. I have also used a Kensington Expert Mouse for a long time.

They just keep getting better

  • Summary: I am a long-time Kensington Expert Mouse user, and it seems that with each new generation they improve upon the already-fantastic previous generation. I know it's not called an Expert Mouse, but in my mind it is the next iteration of this fine product. I was a bit wary about ordering this after reading some of the previous reviews, but I have always had good experiences with Kensington trackballs, so I took the plunge (besides, if I didn't like it I could return it).

Best Trackball Ever.

Ryan, Amazon
25 March 2012
  • Summary: I've been a trackball user for years and have used several different models. When my last one broke I began researching new models to purchase. I really liked the look of the Kensington Slimblade and from past experiences knew that I liked the feel of a bigger ball. I read a ton of reviews on the product and to paraphrase the majority of them, the hardware was amazing but the software was lacking. This gave me some concerns.

It has gotten so much better with time!

J. M. Taylor, Amazon
9 March 2012
  • Summary: Please forgive the length of this review, but I thought these points were important! I have a few trackballs, such as the Logitech Marble and the Kensington Wireless Orbit Mouse (K72352US) , but I had always shied away from the Slimblade because of the negative reviews: it costs too much, the Kensington drivers don't work well with Windows 7, 64 bit, etc. But it really looked good to me, with the large, heavy ball in the middle.

Better than Expert Mouse

Amazon Customer, Amazon
9 February 2012
  • Summary: Pricey yes, but coming from a long time Expert Mouse user, the Slimblade is awesome. The ball is very smooth, the button action is clean, and, the new software (Trackballworks 1.1) is stable. I have always used the top buttons on my Expert Mouse for copy (left) and paste (right). I did not purchase the Slimblade until they released software that permitted programming of these buttons. I feel this device is truly an upgrade from the Expert Mouse.
