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: 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: This product is not designed to be convenient with laptops. The "hub" that allows the computer to talk to the trackball is a good sized gadget with quite the chord of it's own. I'd say this would work great for a desktop, but if I were at a desk, the trackball never needs to move anyway, eliminating the need for cordless.
Summary: After using for a couple of days, it took on a mind of its own. I had to return. I don't know if it was defective or what the problem was, but I wasn't taking any chances and returned. Went back to my 7+ year old wired trackball.
Summary: I have a corded version of this track ball that I use with my desktop computer and I thought I might use this with my laptop. The USB connector that sends out the signal is too big and in the way.
Summary: They say this is a cordless trackman, but this is NOT A CORDLESS PRODUCT. There is a 4 foot cord on the receiver. And the receiver is huge. It is time for a receiver to be the same as a jump drive - no cord and small. This receiver and cord is a real big nuisance. It is constantly getting tangled with the laptop power cord and the cat 5 cable.
Summary: I purchased this TrackMan with expectations of getting a small USB receiver and the TracMan without any wires. It turns out that the receiver has a cord as long as a typical mouse cord. That isn't what is advertised. I'm sure it is a good quality device if you can deal with the extra wired component. I was looking for wireless to use with my laptop. This is worse than buying a wired device if you are using it with a laptop.
statt 2 m Reichweite weniger als 40 cm, ruckelig in Linux

Summary: Mein ca. 8 Jahre alter Trackman (mit Kabel) war kaputt und ich hoffte, mit dem neuen kabellosen den Kabelsalat auf meinem Schreibtisch zu reduzieren. Die Logitech-Angabe, dass die Reichweite bis zu 2 m betrüge, kann ich nicht nachvollziehen. Ab etwas über 30 cm Abstand des Trackballs vom Empfänger wurde der Empfang ruckelig, ab 40 cm riss er komplett ab.
Summary: Seit 5 Wochen benutze ich das Gerät jetzt, und habe schon die 3. Batterie drinnen. Die ständigen Aussetzer sind beim Arbeiten extrem nervig, und erst recht beim Spielen. Der Empfänger ist riesig und mit 1 Meter Kabel. Ich frage mich, wozu ich dann Cordless nehme, wenn ich erst ein langes Kabel am PC hängen habe - für meinen PC und erst recht für Labtops absolut unbrauchbar.
