A Neat Trick, OR: The Elitist's Choice

Baron Rojo, B&H Photo
22 May 2014
  • Excerpt: If sheer good looks were the sole criterion for choosing a trackball, the Kensington Slimblade would be the one, hands down, money no object. Even the cable gets the deluxe treatment, wrapped in braided cloth insulation like some high-class audio products. I've never seen braided cloth on any computer interconnect before, let alone a common USB cable.
  • Pros: Accurate Tracking, Comfortable Design, Great Features, Neat Scrolling Trick
  • Cons: Expensive

Oldschool editing interface

  • Excerpt: I was so excited when I found this trackball. Right away I ordered one, for use on my Mac G5 for Protools editing, and a little bit of Photoshop and iMovie too. It has the feel I need for quick efficient editing. I love the large ball, think billiard ball size, it provided both speed and control, for precise editing. The top address ball allows me to control it with my thumb, fore fingers or both. (unlike many other track balls that are only thumb address.
  • Pros: Accurate Tracking, Comfortable Design, Glides Smoothly
  • Cons: The Ball Could Be More Ma

Almost Perfect

  • Excerpt: Purchased this for my new home computer, believing it to be the next generation of the Kensington Expert Mouse Trackball I use at the office. First, the good news: SlimBlade is true plug and play for Windows 7, no sw compatibility or driver issues, pinpoint accuracy, no response lag, use for hours at a time with no discomfort.

Almost Perfect

  • Excerpt: Much better than a mouse on my lap, I've used a track ball, but there are very few that are USB (and most of them are cheap and don't last very long). Button placement takes sometime to get used to. I hit the top-left button rather than bottom-left a lot, but you get used to it after a while. I like this unit.
  • Pros: Accurate Tracking, Comfortable Design, Glides Smoothly, Works On Any Surface
  • Cons: Scrolling is inconsistant

Great Product needs one fix

22 August 2011
  • Excerpt: I'm an editor and I've been using Kensington Trackballs for ages. The large trackball enables you to effortlessly zoom around the screen and programmable keys help speed up your workflow. I especially like to have a return or enter key located on a button. My one complaint is that for some reason you can only program one keystroke for each button and chord.

The Legend Lives On!

Sam Clemens, B&H Photo
30 May 2011
  • Excerpt: I've been using Kensington trackballs for about 16 years. I forget what they called the with one with the wheels but that was my first. I moved to expert mouse when optical technology came out. I still use an Expert Mouse wireless, an Expert Mouse, and now this SlimBlade. Believe me folks NOBODY makes a trackball as smooth as Kensington. I got this SlimBlade to use with my HP laptop because I just couldn't stand the products offered by Microsoft and Logitech.
  • Pros: Glides Smoothly
  • Cons: Too big for laptop use
