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: To address a few issues here..THIS IS NOT A LAPTOP WIRELESS This feels identical to the wired version..Not sure why someone said it feels cheap This works fine in XP and Win 7..I don't use Vista..Plug and play..not drivers need..not recommended by Logitech.. Have been some problems with Set Point(logitech utility) and this trackman..but I use it for my wireless keyboard so I do use it with out problem. Mine worked perfect for first few months..from 4-5 feet away.
Best trackball, but very fragile controller, AVOID the wireless !!

Summary: My old review is below and I still think the ergonomics are great with this tracball. HOWEVER in the last 6 months I have gone through 2 controllers. I have 2 wireless tracballs and 2 broken controllers. I am sorry but there is no excuse for electronics without moving parts to be so fragile. Until logitech builds durability into the controllers, STAY CLEAR OF THESE UNITS and get a corded one.
Huge disappointment (both product and Logitech customer service)

Summary: I'm really disappointed with both this product and the response I've rec'd from Logitech's customer service. If I could rate it lower than a one-star rating, I would. After purchasing this cordless trackman in December '09, it quit working in January '10. I contacted Logitech for a warranty replacement (January 25, 2010), and, as of Feb. 27th, I'm still waiting for a replacement.
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.
