Great mouse, but...

Summary: I would like to see a corded version to avoid the connectivity issues this one has. Also there is a soft material overlaying the body, which rubs off with a lot of use, leaving a nasty-looking mouse. They should offer a clean plastic body.
Pros: Great ergonomic hand-fit. Stationary. 8 buttons and somewhat customizable.
Cons: Sometimes it disconnects during a reboot and can't be found, despite unplugging the receiver and re-installing. A fresh reboot might be required. Finger oil eventually gums up the trackball, but it's easy to clean. After a year or so, though, the left-click button started sticking, which is a p.i...
Summary: Like I stated in the cons, It's worse for gaming if upgrading from a different trackball mouse (dropped like 200 ELO in League of Legends). I'm also used to having Mouse button 4 above the left click, And mouse button 5 above the right click.
Pros: Wireless It worked instantly after plugging in the mouse tracker. No drivers or setup required for me. Has a scroll unlike some other trackballs Extremely comfortable
Cons: A notable difference for gaming. Upgrading from the Logitech Trackman Marble Optical Wired Mouse, You'll definitely notice that one is MUCH easier to game on.
Summary: I've had this for several years and have only switched back to a regular mouse because my wrist couldn't take the thumb-clicking for the left mouse button. I also had the ambidextrous version of the Trackman and it actually seemed more comfortable than this one.
Pros: The design is great. makes the most of your desk space, your hand stays in a comfortable position. If you like using a trackball this is a good one. There are several programmable buttons and the scroll wheel feels solid. It is good for gaming, you can whip a 180 with no effort. The batteries usu...
Cons: Using a trackball can be fidgety at times. They are so sensitive it is hard to smoothly stay put if you rest your fingers on the trackball. The repetitive thumb-clicking for the left mouse click can be painful over time. The track ball inevitably accumulates finger muck and you have to pop out th...
Excerpt: Twice this mouse has not responded when I started the computer. Each time without any imput from me it began to respond. I hope it doesn't make a habit of this. The mouse is a comfortable fit for me.
Pros: Accurate Controls, Ergonomic Layout, Fast Response, Smooth Movement
Summary: BTW, I reserve 5 eggs for items and service I consider better than expected.
Pros: Smooth rolling, fits perfectly in hand, left mouse button in perfect location, good size & tension, battery appears to last longer than I expected, scroll wheel works just the way I like, ball doesn't fall out if turned upside down or sideways, so easy to move around, unlike most other trackballs...
Cons: I still prefer the Microsoft trackball explorer but at $400 a pop for a used one, I'm not going anywhere near it. Logitech hasn't updated their receiver design in 10 years and is quite large. In this age where my RF keyboard dongle sticks out a mere 0.5cm, I hate having this large receiver and wi...
Summary: If you like or need a trackball and have larger hand, this is a great choice. I also own the M570, It's ok but smaller and my thumb is alittle to twitchy for it. If I could only merge the pro from the two of them, It would be the perfect tackball in my opinion.
Pros: It's big. I like the size and the layout.
Cons: I wish Logitech would update this with Unifing wireless( I'd order two ASAP). After hours of straght use my wrist gets alittle sore form all the finger scrolling.
Summary: All in all a nice trackball, though at first I thought it strange to have a cordless trackball. Normally the cord isn't really an issue as it is with regular mice that have to move around.
Pros: Having the ball on top is so much better than at the thumb. Plenty of buttons. Not to out of the way if you have long fingers like me. I like the idea of the cruse up and down buttons. It came in around two days.....
Cons: The scroll wheel could stand to be a little lower from the ball.
Summary: To have had this for over 10 years and still works is a HUGE plus in my book and when/if it dies will replace it with another one without having to think about it.
Pros: Wireless, well placed buttons, even for a big handed guy like myself, and takes a beating. I have worn off the paint on the buttons, and some times it loses connectivity where I have to unplug it and plug it back in, but other then that its been perfect. Also battery lie is great. I get about 3 m...
Cons: Just the having to unplug it and plug it back in now and then. Lucky for me I have it plugged into a front usb jack so if it happens I dont have to get to the back of my pc to do it.
