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: The Logitech Cordless TrackMan Wheel was purchased in Sept. 2006. I have had this for two months at the time this review is being written. I bought this to replace the corded version of the same item. The cordless works as well as the corded one. The trackball doesn't has quite as smooth a roll to it as the corded one did, but the difference is minimal. I wonder if this may be because it is new and the other one had had years of use.
Summary: I have had this trackball for over one year now. I've used the wired-USB version for my work laptop, so I wanted the wireless for my home laptop. The ergonomics are great. Like many others, this mouse fits your palm like a glove. Originally when I first started using trackballs, it took some getting used to, but once you get the feel for it, you'll be a trackball (more appropriately a "thumb-ball") pro. The buttons are well-located, convenient, and comfortable.
Summary: Like davidindallas (below), I'm also left-handed, but I don't share his view of this product. For many years, I used right-handed (and handedness-agnostic) mice with my left hand, sharing them with my right-handed family and friends, rearranging the desk each time. A few years ago, I had an epiphany: if I could just learn to use the danged things with my right hand, I'd be able to write notes with my left.
Summary: I am a trackball fan from way back since I was first introduced to them by my physical therapist after having a shoulder operation that made moving my arm next to impossible. I find moving a mouse around a desk both clumsy and unnatural and just don't understand how people can accept them. This is my third trackball from Logitech and it is by far the best one I have had.(I gave the old ones to friends or family who are now converts to the trackball way!
Summary: One of the most popular pastimes in Singapore - after shopping, of course - is sending SMS messages on a mobile phone. The kids here really have trained thumbs. It's a good qualification for users of the Logitech TrackMan. This gadget helped me clean up my desk - one cable less, mouse-pad out of the way. My two-year-old loves the red trackball although he misses yanking at the mouse cord. However, my PC co-user (and wife) cannot get used to the new toy.
Summary: This cordless mouse simply feels great in my hand. I've owned about 10 different mouses and this one pleases me because it feels like part of my hand rather than part of the PC. I find that my thumb moves the trackball effortlessly while my index finger shifts almost without thought between the wheel and buttons. I seem to get consistent communication between the mouse and the receiver as I've not noticed any performance problems.
Inuendo central for the cordless Logitech Trackman Wheel mouse!

Excerpt: "Balls are back! and there is far less hand gymnastics required with this excellent mouse without a tail! I bought this device about 3 months ago and will never look back! it has served me well and will continue to serve me well for the foreseeable future... when i first recieved this mouse, it was packaged well and came with a nice user friendly set up, drivers and sofware... it did take me a few hours to get used to not moving my hand all about ...
Pros: wireless, accurate, comfortable, and durable
Cons: doesnt like super super fine work, gets tacky quite quickly
