Great Mouse but NUTS pricing
17 March 2013
Summary: I've now had 4 of these AMAZING input devices - which saves effort/time, has great range and battery life and eliminates carpel tunnel. However, I've never paid more than $50 for any of mine (3 still work at 3 and 4 years later, one doesn't because it was dropped one too many times. This price however is FKN insane. Shop around folks.
Summary: After a HARD day of counting my money and tripping children at the local food store I love coming home and thumbing my ball. No more will I have waste wrist muscle movement while I watch web videos I have moved on to the next level with ball thumbing. At 200 dollars I thought I was going to get arrested for stealing from the amazon but no cops have come knocking on my door yet.
Summary: We've had the wired version of this mouse (x2) for the last 2-6 years and were hoping that the wireless version would decrease the cord mess in the living room with the HTPC setup. Wrong! It will not keep a consistent connection even when 3ft from its receiver (product literature says up to 6ft). It either does not work at all or it shakes and glitches on the screen. It went straight back to Amazon. Amazon's service was great though, easy return.
Summary: I just bought this for my windows7 machine; the mouse will not work from more than six inches away from the base unit. I'm not sure if this is just a defective unit. Also the plastic construction of this mouse is really cheap feeling; definitely a dated piece of hardware and I'm surprised logitech hasn't updated it.
Summary: I would like to say my experience has not been a good one. I bought this cordless mouse so I wouldn't have cords running across my living room. I have my computer running through the TV,and I sit I about 6 feet from the screen. I have the same corded model, and thought this would be pretty much the same just no cords. Everyday I have a problem trying to get the thing to work.
Summary: I've always been a Logitech fanboy since using the first Logitech product some time in the early 90's. Now, everything I can get (trackballs, keyboards, gaming pads, remote controls) if Logitech makes one, that's the one I'm buying. Which brings us to the wireless trackball. I haven't been able to use a normal mouse for years since getting hooked on my first trackball. When I saw they had created a wireless version, I was stoked. But then I used it...
Summary: If you have a large hand, perhaps this trackball will be good for you. After purchasing this will much hope, I definitely prefer the Trackman Marble Mouse or Optical Marble Mouse with the trackball in the center, excellent for ambidextrous people, and easier to operate, --not available wireless.
I give it 3 stars because it is tiresome and slow for someone, again, with small hands.
