Works well with Apple's Maverick

Backroad Rider, B&H Photo
17 August 2014
  • Excerpt: The old Logitech trackball was giving me fits since upgrading to Mt. Lion and was as bad or worse with the Maverick operating system. I made sure the trackball had the latest firmware and was clean but it still had trouble selecting, "dragging and dropping" and scrolling so I bought the Kensington trackball. It worked perfectly right away. (I had downloaded the driver first.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Good Ergonomics, Never Freezes
  • Cons: Depends On Batteries

Does what it says it will do.

Damion G., Newegg
12 July 2014
  • Pros: Wireless, compact and fairly responsive
  • Cons: Left and right button placement is awkward. When you are moving the mouse to change the angle of your palm, you can push the buttons unintentionally. Also, the touch scroll takes some getting used to. A physical button or slide would give a better tactile feel to the scroll options.

Terrible Ergonomics

Liz "Andrex", Amazon
4 June 2014
  • Summary: This is the worst trackball I have ever used. 1) It is uncomfortable because the buttons are in the wrong place. 2) I installed the downloadable software on my 64bit Windows 8.1 Pro and moving the trackball caused random movement and random button clicks all over the desktop. Using the Windows drivers everything was fine. I have used trackballs for years now for graphics processing, software development and general web browsing.

Another one bites the dust

Arnie J., Newegg
15 May 2014
  • Summary: This will probably be the last Kensington product I purchase. I wish Logitech made a similar mouse to this one.
  • Pros: It's wireless
  • Cons: They keep breaking. They just stop working. Either the sensor stops working or the trackball itself starts moving erratic and can't be used.

Great for travel, kinda small for home

pixelwiz, B&H Photo
15 May 2014
  • Excerpt: It's pretty small for travel, which is why I bought this trackball. Microsoft Trackball Explorer is still a much more comfortable trackball, but not manufactured anymore. The actual ball of this one is pretty small, and the left button is comfortable enough, but the right not so much. I also keep scrolling accidently by touching the areas by the ball. Still beats any mouse I think.

Meh.

Ben E., Newegg
3 May 2014
  • Summary: I usually buy logitech mice, going back a long time. Everytime I try Kensington, I'm disappointed.
  • Pros: it's not a bad mouse,
  • Cons: I'm not a fan of the form factor. The ball is too small and the buttons are not optimally place

What's not to like!??? w/ Update

Amazon Customer "richlife", Amazon
7 March 2014
  • Summary: Update, 3/28/2014: Nothing major in the review below has changed -- still really love this trackball. But I have noticed that my comment about my "grip" on it is no longer correct. I use exactly the same grip as I did on my Logitech Mouseball. It just took a little usage time to get the feel of the different shape. So -- I suppose you could say it took me several weeks to fully adjust. But I never really noticed it.

Great for tiny hands

LadyGadget, B&H Photo
5 March 2014
  • Excerpt: I have small hands and I'm prone to shorting out every cord I come across. I needed wireless fast as my Kensington Orbit Optical Trackball keep shorting out. I loved that mouse so much. If only that design were wireless. YOU HEAR THAT KENSINGTON? MAKE THE ORBIT OPTICAL DESIGN WIRELESS THANK YOU!
  • Pros: Accurate Controls, Easy To Clean, Fast Response, Smooth Movement
  • Cons: Uncomfortable
