Greatest trackball ever

John J McKeon, Amazon
13 November 2012
  • Summary: I use this for CAD design (and everything else). It's fast, smooth and has enough button options. This is my second trackball explorer (I use one at work and one at home). I've used the Logitech cordless trackball, but its buttons and overall size are too small. I wonder if Microsoft stopped production on these because they were infringing on a Logitech patent.

Best pointing device ever made

Alan Hamilton, Amazon
22 October 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this in 2001 and am still using it. The layout of the device is brilliant: two buttons (left/right click) and a roller under the thumb, fingertip control for the ball, and two additional fingertip buttons. I have them mapped to page up/down, which makes moving around web pages effortless using only the trackball. No other trackball made has this unique combination, unfortunately. They either put the ball under your thumb, or omit the fingertip buttons.

Why don't they make these anymore? These are the best by far Trackball!

Wyorattler, Amazon
24 November 2011
  • Summary: I bought one of these when they first came out for $70 for my wife. Then I got to go to a conference at Microsoft Head quarters and was allowed to spend $100 of my money in their employee store. Of the many things I was able to purchase was another MS Optiplex Explorer Trackball. My wife used hers so much the paint came off of it. I took care of mine and have wanted to have another just in case mine ever broke.

Loyal User of 11+ years.

Iaso Nikko, Amazon
25 June 2011
  • Summary: After over 11+ years of use, and just as many years of comparison to other models, my conclusion is that this is the best trackball mouse humanity has ever made. It has taken me from highschool, to bachelors, to gradschool, and to work, and it has always worked and always been smooth and relentlessly comfortable.. despite the fact that my hands grew to 1.5x their size since I had my father, now passed, purchase it for me all those years ago.

"Great mouse with rechargable battery"

gapwheat, CNET
2 February 2011
  • Pros: Recharge cradle is very useful, even though I only need to recharge it about once a month. Not sure about the negative review on replacing batteries. Maybe they didn't notice it's rechargable.
  • Cons: Scrolling can be somewhat erratic at times.

excellent trackball

dripac, Amazon
2 February 2011
  • Summary: I have owned MS trackball explorer since 2001, which testifies about it's quality. I was lucky enough to have found two more, recently, and bought them, to be ready when my original one expires. This testifies how much I like it. I also have Logitech cordless trackball, collecting dust (says it all). Extremely convenient and ergonomic, needs no real estate nor flat surface, four programmable buttons, scrolling wheel... Now, the price.
