This is a GREAT mouse

Excerpt: This mouse is awesome!! I first seen this type of mouse when I was in college a couple years ago. After graduating, I went back to the "typical" mouse. I came across it on B&H, at a better price than anywhere else...so I bought it!! The part I like most is that, I don't have to constantly pick up the mouse and adjust the pointer. When installing the driver it also installs Logitech software so you can change the settings.
Pros: Accurate Controls, Customizable Buttons, Easy To Clean, Smooth Movement
Summary: I actually ordered one of these by mistake about 7 years ago. Best mistake I've made. The only thing I don't really care for is how easily the glide points for the ball gunk up if you have animals or smoke, they are easy to clean however.
Summary: Trackball is loose; so any vibration or quick movement causes the pointer to move. It lacks scroll wheel which was a big disappointment, I did not look at the picture carefully. But the biggest downfall is the location of the buttons. I still can't get used to click the left button with my thumb instead of my index finger which has been difficult to do. I'm unhappy with this purchase and will probably return it.
Summary: My father bought one for playing Myst around 1998. But, it was a serial model and kind of had to die with that computer. So, when I bought my laptop, I got a USB marble mouse. If you get hurt and can't use your dominant hand, the symmetrical design makes it just as easy to switch sides. I tend to be a daredevil, so I have had occasion to need this capability. And it's very portable. It doesn't matter where you work. It will stay put. The drawbacks are minor.
Excerpt: I have been using these for years on my computers (desktop and laptops) and love them. Easy to use and setup in windows. Just purchased 2 more for new computers. Shipped fast also and a great price.
Pros: Accurate Controls, Easy To Clean, Ergonomic Layout, Fast Response, Smooth Movement
Summary: I have a very cluttered desk so my mouse was not getting frustrating to use. I bought the trackman thinking it would just be a capable substitute, but it exceeds the mouse in every way except scrolling... Find a way to improve the scrolling and it's pretty much perfect.
