Showing 1-10 of 46
Slightly better than its predecessor and unfortunately also still better than its replacement :-|

Summary: Having owned an old Trackman Marble+ PS/2 as well as the Wireless Trackball (M570), I can say that this is my favourite device of the three and I would definitely recommend this product over either of the others. In terms of sheer ergonomics, the older Trackman Marble+ is slightly superior, being that it puts slightly less strain on your wrist, which is a key feature for anyone who is switching to a trackball from a mouse due to wrist strain as I was.
Summary: I did a lot of research and decided to buy this mouse after reading the reviews. I have never used a track ball mouse before and it took awhile to get used it. Now, I love it. It has reduced my hand fatigue and I would highly recommend it anyone looking for a good quality wireless mouse.
Great mouse! But save the money + batteries & get the corded one

Summary: I've used this mouse for the past few years at work. I'd had some hand/wrist/arm discomfort from frequent mousing and purchased this -- as well as the Fellowes 98915 Antimicrobial Split Design Keyboard (Black) , which btw is wonderful. While almost frustrating to learn at first -- until you get the thumb motion down, the cursor can be devilishly difficult to control -- within 1-2 weeks I was not only mousing with ease but had completely eliminated all arm/hand pain.
Summary: This is my second trackball. My first was a plug in. I love almost everything about it. However, when I ordered a cordless one, I assumed that was what I was getting. I was surprised to find a 4 ft. cord that plugs into my computer, which "cordlessly" connects to the trackball. I was expecting something along the lines of a memory card type plug in. I still love the trackball, and will always use one, but be careful what you assume.
Summary: I read many reviews for this product prior to purchasing, and despite several complaints about the range limitations I bought it anyway. I have an extremely small office so this wasn't much of an issue for me; however, I did try to use the mouse once without a direct line of sight and I lost the connection -- moved it back into line of sight and it works great. As to the overall function and ease, I love it!
Summary: I've been using the Logitech TrackMan for years. To me it's very comfortable and fast. My hand naturally falls into position on this unit. Years ago I used the corded version and that did work smoother than the cordless model. The cordless model is just more convenient for my laptop. I just bought my 3rd cordless TrackMan after my other ones finally wore out. Using the ball is very smooth and accurate for games as well as everyday computer use.
Comfortable, natural fit for right-hand only, stable design

Summary: Simple and stable design. Wide palm rest, very natural and comfortable feel. Wish there were back and forward buttons. Many options for configuring pointer movement and actions. Battery cover difficult to open, was concerned about breaking it. Make sure to position the receiver with ample open space around it (not next to other devices), or mouse movements may be erratic.
Summary: I love this trackman wheel. Unfortunately, after a couple of years my last one started giving me trouble and I couldn't figure out what was going on. I finally just replaced it and now I'm back on track.
Summary: I've been using a wired track ball in my office for a few years now and have loved it. I seem to never have much room on my desk for a standard fiber optic mouse. Just too much paperwork. When I purchased my own laptop at home I used a standard fiber optic mouse. Then I realized it wasn't working for me, I knew I wanted another Track Ball but I wanted it wireless. It took a while to find it and here at Amazon had the best price.
