Summary: I would give this a solid "OK". I own this as well as the TrackMan Wheel and really prefer the TrackMan Wheel. Mostly because of the placement of the ball. I also own the Trackman Marble (where the ball is in the center), and I find it much easier t use than this mouse. I also have the Microsoft trackball which is pretty dang good as well, if you can find one. The benefit this optical trackman has is the additional forward and back buttons as well as the scroll wheel.
Excerpt: Great style. A single of the extremely couple of cordless trackballs presented these days. Fantastic battery life. Here we go... durability and help with this mouse is CRUD. I have just "worn out" my third Optical Trackman in four yrs. I look to get 1 - 1-1ǘ yrs before buttons start off taking tougher "mashing" to function, and cursor is unresponsive. Thorough cleaning and fresh batteries will not help, when it goes out...
Excerpt: Stationary mouse. All the crucial functions of a mouse, a scroll wheel and a handful of further buttons. Back and and forward buttons good for simple browsing. Weight keeps it from moving around considerably. Effortless to set up. Not as comfortable as a normal mouse. The way the thumb lays on the left button is awkward and to leading it off the left button is stiffer than most mouse buttons creating it an uncomfortable affair for the thumb.
Excerpt: A good size trackball.Lots of buttons & attributes. After a year of in depth use, the principal button is giving out. It will only perform at times, and desires a lot of pressure to execute.Range was never ever as good as it ought to be -- the device is sitting about 4 feet from the transmitter with direct line of sight -- if I move it a single foot additional, it does not connect appropriately.
Excerpt: Well-created. Fits the hand just about naturally. The receiver can be some distance from the trackball itself, and not necessarily line-of-sight. Good array of programmable buttons. Battery life is actually fine. The trackball itself feels clunky at times, as if it can\'t move smoothly in its socket. The "left" button feels like it is jammed - the movement is not smooth, but grates a tiny bit. Also feels like you have to push a bit as well hard.
Excerpt: Whilst it was operating it worked properly. Its a Logitech! I really like the Logitech keyboards and mice, don't use something else. Stopped working on my Win 7 machine, if I re-booted the machine a couple occasions I could get it to operate for a quick time, then even that didn't bring it to life. For the quick time it worked for me it was quite strong. Personally I would spend a little additional funds and get a greater top quality mouse.
Excerpt: Good excellent, straightforward set up, good wireless function It just doesn't feel correct in my hand. The ergonomics are awkward. The killer for me even though is that the ball just did not move smoothly inside the socket.
Excerpt: Able to replace existing mouse from Logitech keyboard/mouse combo with this mouse. Just hit button on existing Logitech combo keyboard/mouse base station and hit button on Trackman and you are in enterprise.Not actually a pro, but you have to set up software to get total attributes. Does not fit hand perfectly as other people claim. Thumb button is hard to push, other people have commented on it and I need to say a thumb is quite difficult and the button pushes back!
Excerpt: I enjoy this mouse have used it for about 6 years. This is my 5th mouse,all had the identical difficulty.Left click button wares out clicks but dose not function. The makers need to consintrate on the left clicker and in stall a heavy duty buton.
