This Trackball is difficult to use
16 August 2014
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.
Summary: I've had trackballs almost exclusively since I began computing 20(?) years ago. Started with Microtech. Eventually went with Logitech and am now using the Kensington Orbit. There is no trackball out there that is perfect. Few are even adequate. The Marble Mouse and the Orbit are both pretty good.
Summary: Reasonably priced and functional - a good buy, but design could be better. Footprint is excessive due to length of housing. Secondary buttons are too small and awkwardly placed for easy use. Best for using on a permanent work surface, not travel.
Summary: I bought this to replace my MS Trackball Explorer as it was the closest thing I could find. The ball is in the right spot, but the base is too narrow and uncomfortable there are fewer buttons, and I didn't even notice there was no scroll wheel until I opened the package.
Summary: When I was looking for a replacement for my Trackman Wheel trackball for my laptop, I knew I wanted another trackball. Since they don't move around like a mouse, I don't need as much space to use it. As I move my latptop around and use it in smaller areas, this is very important.
Excerpt: This is probably a good product, but I had to return it. It was so large, it was hard to use and cramped my hand. If you have small hands, you might try it before buying it. Maybe I could have learned to work around it, but after days, I couldn't get used to it and had to give up.
Pros: Accurate Controls, Fast Response, Smooth Movement
Excerpt: Scrolling ball has a good size. Fair number of buttons. It looses two stars because it does not have a decent way to scroll. A scroll wheel or ring would certainly take this product close to the next level.
Pros: Ergonomic Layout, Fast Response, Smooth Movement
Summary: I've been disappointed as I read that it can`t scroll. Fortunatelly, buttons could be reprogrammed. I find that I don`t use forward button (little button on the right by default) so often, and I choosed "universal scroll" instead.
