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.
Great track ball with a limited two year life span

Summary: These work great for as long as they last. The transmitter that plugs into the computer USB port always fails after 1 1/2 to 2 years of service. If they lasted longer, I would have given it a five star rating. I've had three of these things over the years because they are so comfortable and ergonomic. Wish Logitech would sell replacement transmitters so I didn't have to buy a complete new product every two years.
Summary: This "cordless" trackman wheel isn't cordless at all! The unit requires the user to plug a transmitter into the computer via USB. This would probably be fine for a desktop computer user but if you are mobile with a laptop it is pointless. The receiver has a cord on it about 2 feet long so my opinion is if you are using this unit you might as well be using a corded track unit and save yourself $15-20.
Summary: Just to let you make an informed choice... if you're thinking of attaching a small receiver directly to a USB port on your laptop and eliminating that last wire, this trakball won't match your expectations. The pictures don't show the receiving unit, which is nearly as large as the trakball itself and attaches by a long cord. However, the trakball works great and would be a great choice for a desktop machine.
Summary: I had the original TrackMan Wheel mouse (with a cord) and loved it. I regretted letting my mother-in-law have it the very second I agreed to it. I purchased this one as a replacement once I realised I didnt like a normal mouse any more. Plus I purchased a laptop and thought the cordless would be handy. This model works excellent and is great for use at home with a desktop computer.
Summary: Ich habe den Trackman gekauft um meinen Tennisarm/-ellenbogen zu schonen und diese Ziel auch erreicht. Leider wird durch die Höhe der Mouse, für die man große Hände haben sollte, sehr das Armgelenk beansprucht. Die Umstellung von der "normalen" Mouse hat ca. eine halbe Stunde gedauert. Deshalb werde ich zwischen "normaler" Mouse und Trackman wechseln um nach Möglichkeit jede Art von Überbelastung zu vermeiden.
