Outdated tech, poor longevity.

Nori Lamphere "ElfNori", Amazon
10 December 2013
  • Summary: I bought a used mouse which has a massively sticky ball, worse than my used-every-day-and-rebuilt-twice 8 year old Logitech Trackball. If you have to do anything with precision, this is NOT the mouse to buy. Consider buying an Anker 2000 or 5000 mouse instead.

Best Trackball ever made.

Trey Courtney "Trey", Amazon
23 November 2013
  • Summary: After I don't know how many years, my Microsoft Trackball has finally died. No biggie I thought, I'll just hit up Amazon and buy a new one. Maybe get a wireless model. How naive I was. I'm shocked this thing is not being made anymore. It was the best mouse replacement device I have every used. I've tried some other Logitech trackballs and this is the one that I always came back to.

What are people smoking!!!!!!!!!???

Lindenhurstian, Amazon

  • Summary: I have 6 of these. In 2001 I started working at the place I am presently employed. They had this strange trackball mouse (The Microsoft Trackball Optical). I though, my gosh this thing is awful. After a week, I thought I will never have anything else, this thing is just perfect. Luckily I bought the ones I did. I purchased them at Office Max for $30.00 (maybe less but definitely no more). There is absolutely no reason for anyone to be charging this outrageous price.

Gets dirty easy, but still the best trackball mouse ever

Chuck Nasty, Amazon
2 August 2013
  • Summary: I remember when these were $20, not $200. Aside from when dust and crap gets caught in the ball holder, it's very comfortable and easy to use, allowing precise-enough control to play FPSs and RTSs and literally anything. Unfortunately, they're no longer manufactured and they're way too expensive. If I didn't already have one from years ago, I'd consider buying the cheapest used one I could get.

14 years and keeps on clicking

Steve R Sedlmayr, Amazon
11 March 2013
  • Summary: I didn't purchase this product on Amazon; it came with my new Dell WebPC in 1999: 14 years ago. That computer, with a Pentium III CPU, has long since been shelved. The trackball has been passed along from computer to computer until today it is servicing a home-built tower machine running an Asus Rampage III Extreme motherboard with a core i7 processor and 16 GB RAM. The point is, the one constant has been the trackball.

Not a great trackball

Clayton B. Jones "The Rational Customer", Amazon
1 March 2012
  • Summary: I'm literally shocked to see soo many good reviews on this trackball. I've owned mine for various years and have never loved it. The major problem is that the ball sticks. Period end of sentence. Sure it works fine for about a few minutes, maybe an hour or so but somehow it is designed it sticks and I'm not the first to mention so although I'm the first to mention so here. Forward back buttons work good and scrolling is fine but the ball sticking is a deal killer for me.

Replaceing my beloved Microsoft Optical Trackball

Tomn Gatees, Amazon
18 February 2012
  • Summary: Great little replacement for my Microsoft optical trackball. Works well I do wish the mouse was a bit larger. Very responsive and the transmiter fits in my Dell desktop and I can close the bay door. I would rater have a new Microsoft Optical Mouse but alas they quit making them a decade ago. Its the best trackball on the market.

Great device but WAY TOO EXPENSIVE

Nerds fan, Amazon
29 November 2011
  • Summary: I first started using this trackball and the Logitech version and these are definitely the way to go. Using the mouse acceleration settings you can make them as sensitive as you would like. These are my most favorite input devices but there is no way I would ever spend the asking amount for these. It is just ridiculously expensive now.
