Love this trackball!
2 August 2013
Summary: I've been using this trackball for 4 years now and it still works great. Battery life for me is about 4 months, using regular AA alkaline batteries. The textured coating wore of/peeled away after about 2.5 years of daily, 8 hour use. I accelerated the process and now it looks shiny black, looks good and still works great. The left click button has also worn off after so much use. I fixed that by coating it with clear nail polish....
Summary: I have used one of these for the last few years and I absolutly love it. I ordered this one for a co-worker and she now loves hers. It looks like Logitech is phasing these out so I'm thinking I had better order a spare!
Summary: I tend not to have a great deal of space around my keyboard and being able to move a mouse around can be an issue. Even if using a mouse, I dislike the feeling I get in my wrist with it constantly sliding on the edge of the desk. Instead, for many years, I have used trackballs and I love them dearly.
Summary: I have been a computer programmer for over twenty years, and when I started feeling some signs of Carpel Tunnel Syndrome about ten years ago, I made a few workspace changes. This Logitech trackball was the first and helped exponentially. I've had this trackball for over ten years just before switching to iMac and using the Apple trackpad. I still prefer using this over the Apple's. The quality, precision, comfort, and size of this trackball are just amazing.
Summary: I bought this for my wife as birthday gift as she is complaining about pain in her wrist and shoulder when using her mini mouse. We just got it this week and have yet to fully see what it can do. So far I like seeing her bringing this mouse as she sits on our sofa with laptop and she just place the mouse on top of a pillow besides her. She's just saying that she's just getting use to it but still feeling a little uncomfortable on her shoulder.
Summary: I've used 4 different trackball input devices. I've had this one for almost a year now. I had problems with this device when I first started to use it, but I had recognized that it would just be a matter of educating my digits (fingers/hand) to use it - of course it helps to have played piano for a few decades, thank you Frederic Chopin. So, I reserved final judgement until my hand and fingers had adapted to this design.
