Summary: I think that Logitech really screwed the pooch when they dropped this design. It was FANTASTIC. It felt great in your hand and was incredibly accurate. The only issue with it was its lack of a scroll wheel. The USB version of this was great, but also lacked a scroll wheel. For most people, a cord on a trackball isn't a liability. The trackball doesn't need to move around, so the cord doesn't get in the way.
Summary: I had never used a trackball for any long period of time before using this one. That was because all of the other trackballs that I have tried seem a lit akward to control. The Logitech Cordless Trackman FX Optical Trackball solves this problem by placing the ball between your thumb and fingers allowing you to be able to use either your thumb or your fingers to control the pointer.
Excerpt: As far as usability, after you get employed to this trackball, you'll never want to use something else. The customizable buttons make it effortless to manage routine tasks with a single click. It's nice to be capable to system specific buttons for the forward and back buttons to speed up web browsing and digging via directories on your challenging drive. I have owned two of these, and I am about to buy a third (probably right here).
Excerpt: Best they at the moment have of this variety of mouse, surprisingly excellent battery life, outlasted several mice my good friends had. RIP 2008-2010 Died right after about 2 years, but because its nevertheless the finest I'm gonna order a different this time with the 2 year extended warranty. Its worth it.
Excerpt: Battery lasts a lengthy time. Effortless to set up. Programable buttons. Operates properly with gaming in LOTRO. Straightforward to clean. A bit expensive, but you get what you pay for. Very good ergonomics. Scroll wheel and third button. Left click button placement. I would have prefered to have the button placed so that it would activate when pressing down rather of in. I comprehend why they produced that choice.
Excerpt: Got this model mainly because I grew up on a Trackman Vista back in the day, which had a quite related design and style compared to other trackballs. It's very comfy in my hand, but I have short fingers, and I could envision it becoming awkward for other folks. I like the configurability. I have to admit I haven't genuinely used it, but it's cool to know it's there. It's wireless? Why a wireless desktop trackball?
