Nice trackball, but needs tweaking
1 week ago
Summary: The ball is too small to fine tune your movements, and the scroll ring is a total annoyance. Because of the size of the ball, my finger hangs over a little, and as I'm moving the ball the scroll ring picks up on my finger and then randomly scrolls. The driver software is weird too. No way to control the sensitivity of the scroll ring, and even though it has a direction control, it doesn't work.
Summary: Length:: 0:50 Mins In addition to the issues shown in the video, I found it very difficult to right click (I'm right handed) or to keep the cursor on anything during either kind of click. I gave it my best shot and then sent it back.
Summary: After upgrading to OS X 10.9, my old Kensington mouse software would not work so I purchased this product for it's cordless feature and the upgraded software. Works as I expected. Only complaints would be that it is smaller than my last mouse and, after turning on the scrolling feature, turing it off generates a mouse click in addition to stopping the scrolling so you have to be careful where the cursor is located.
Summary: Great small size for travel, & wireless works well. Difficult to right click, needs a little larger for right fingers to reach. Since used to Logitech wired mouse, this one was a little hard to get used to, but good for wireless travel.
Summary: I needed something better than my laptop's touch-pad for maneuvering around the desktop. I had a logitech wireless mouse but when you are at the airport, you don't often have much room at the charging stations. This trackball was just the thing. Very handy for traveling and also great for home or office use. So far I have not had any problems. I used it on a couple different computers: - laptop - netbook - desktop.
Summary: Works well. I move my wrist almost none now. I use it off my leg or cupped in my hand. Nice. Scroll can be difficult at times because fat fingers don't fit the groove. I need to remove and re-insert the transceiver after every shutdown for this trackball to work. It is easier to move the cursor, stop on something and select it over my wired mouse I will add.
