Comment:
As far as usability, after you get employed to this trackball, you'll never want to use something else. The customizable buttons make it effortless to manage routine tasks with a single click. It's nice to be capable to system specific buttons for the forward and back buttons to speed up web browsing and digging via directories on your challenging drive. I have owned two of these, and I am about to buy a third (probably right here). Regrettably, there are some reliability difficulties with it. The initial 1 I purchased was a refurbished 1 that I got on the unmentionable auction website. Massive error there. It lasted many months ahead of the major left click button began to fail. I named up Logitech about a warranty replacement, but they did not offer you any warranty on their refurbished products. I liked the product so substantially that I decided to get a new a single from them, which has lasted very a when ... three years really. But just the other day, the button that I use for the back button failed. Now, you may possibly say that three years is a lengthy time for a mouse button to last, but I have found the buttons on Microsoft's goods to be much a lot more durable. We use them at function and it appears we only have to replace them when an individual starts raging and throws their mouse against the wall! So, I have to deduct an egg for much less-than preferred reliability As I stated above, I am on the verge of buying a different a single of these trackballs due to the fact I appreciate getting them but โ-60 for a new trackball each 3 years just since a button (and not even one that gets a lot of use) fails is rather annoying.

This is the most comfortable mouse I have ever utilized. I utilized Kensington 64325, but it's scroll ring stopped operating after a while. The Logitech has a regular scroll wheel, which is wonderful. Also it is more affordable. No explanation that it must be wireless because it doesn't move, but it's not genuinely a con except when you have to modify the two AA batteries. I advise downloading and installing Logitech software to configure pointer speed, etc. The left button may well really feel strange at very first, but it is ideal as soon as you get applied to it.

Everything about this mouse is a pro! Cons belong in prison. I am so in love with this thing. I initial bought a Microsoft Laser Mouse 5000 and hated it so a lot that I returned it the next day, then I saw this puppy and I adore it! The only point that scared me at 1st is that the trackball is way off in pointer path (about 45 degrees) but then I realized you can calibrate the ball to how YOU want it in the Logitech software.Someone else here complained about that pointer challenge and didn't even bother working with the application to discover out that there IS an solution to calibrate your trackball to what YOU assume "up down left proper" is with the ball. I Enjoy THIS Factor!!

Great style. A single of the extremely couple of cordless trackballs presented these days. Fantastic battery life. Here we go... durability and help with this mouse is CRUD. I have just "worn out" my third Optical Trackman in four yrs. I look to get 1 - 1-1ǘ yrs before buttons start off taking tougher "mashing" to function, and cursor is unresponsive. Thorough cleaning and fresh batteries will not help, when it goes out....it's out.Attributes all worked well in XP, but there are rather a handful of bugs with Vista/Win 7 use. The most notable one particular becoming frequent crashes in Outlook 2010. Setpoint application is shakey to say the least....and Hardly ever updated. It was just about a full year prior to a Win 7 version of setpoint was released. Logitech is very undesirable in the update/support dept. Debating regardless of whether to acquire a 4th, or go back to a wired Kennsington. I LOVED the way this mouse worked in XP, and the design is second to none....BUT do I truly want to obtain a โ mouse every single year or so? Do I actually want to use crippled/buggy software to get it to operate? Gonna have to believe on it a day or so.This mouse has been out for YEARS, with no hardware updates....scroll "wheel" nevertheless operates as a scroll "button", and you nonetheless have to put a wired/clunky receiver on your desktop. A lot more of a "wireless gap" than accurate "wireless".I would STRONGLY reccomend any individual who does get this mouse to also buy an extended warranty.

Battery lasts a lengthy time. Effortless to set up. Programable buttons. Operates properly with gaming in LOTRO. Straightforward to clean. A bit expensive, but you get what you pay for. Very good ergonomics. Scroll wheel and third button. Left click button placement. I would have prefered to have the button placed so that it would activate when pressing down rather of in. I comprehend why they produced that choice. If you want to rest your thumb to rest on something other than the button (less possibility of accidentally pressing) it operates fine. But I would choose a style equivalent to the logitech TrackMan Marble FX. I owned a couple of these and liked them a lot.The purpose I changed is that I wanted some thing to allow a third button and scroll wheel, and the Marble FX is no longer manufactured. The transition time for me to get employed to the new position was less than 30 minutesI would have liked to have had a less pricey wired selection. Overall a very very good item. Thank you Logitech and please be confident to maintain manufacturing a large finger trackball in your inventory. As I create Arthritis, I do not look forward to attempting to use a thumb ball version.

Stationary mouse. All the crucial functions of a mouse, a scroll wheel and a handful of further buttons. Back and and forward buttons good for simple browsing. Weight keeps it from moving around considerably. Effortless to set up. Not as comfortable as a normal mouse. The way the thumb lays on the left button is awkward and to leading it off the left button is stiffer than most mouse buttons creating it an uncomfortable affair for the thumb. I've in no way had so considerably difficulty double and triple clicking. The trackball itself is slow and inaccurate even immediately after quite a few attempts at orientation. This is surprising taking into consideration the accuracy and speed of Logitech's Trackman Marble. The reaction time appears sluggish and unfit for gaming (again, as opposed to the Marble). The scroll wheel is awkward to use, excellent if you're not employing the trackball whilst scrolling but also quite tiny compared to standard scroll wheels. All in all, if a scroll wheel and wireless is significant to you this will get you far. If wireless doesn't matter and you can do with no a scroll wheel then I advocate that Trackman Marble alternatively.

A good size trackball.Lots of buttons & attributes. After a year of in depth use, the principal button is giving out. It will only perform at times, and desires a lot of pressure to execute.Range was never ever as good as it ought to be -- the device is sitting about 4 feet from the transmitter with direct line of sight -- if I move it a single foot additional, it does not connect appropriately. I have tried quite a few various positions and channels -- no luck.Ball supports gather dirt incredibly effortlessly. I have to take the ball out & clean them usually. It does not impact standard functionality -- but does make it harder to move the ball precisely. It replaced the other Logitech trackman. I liked the older (ball on the left) a lot more, but I like the track ball place on this 1 superior, so I'm going to get an additional soon. As I stated above -- there is absolutely nothing far better in the market place that I can find...

Got this model mainly because I grew up on a Trackman Vista back in the day, which had a quite related design and style compared to other trackballs. It's very comfy in my hand, but I have short fingers, and I could envision it becoming awkward for other folks. I like the configurability. I have to admit I haven't genuinely used it, but it's cool to know it's there. It's wireless? Why a wireless desktop trackball? I want they produced a wired version, but obviously that wasn't enough to hold me from purchasing it.I can't get it to operate properly in some games -- nevertheless sluggish on highest sensitivity. But, I suspect that's not the trackball's fault. Even though I hate that it's wireless, I have yet to replace the batteries, so I guess I shouldn't complain also substantially.To comment on some of the concerns that other people have had:I can't say considerably to the longevity of this issue....had it about 3 months now, and I'm glad to say I've had no challenges yet.The layout of the buttons was type of awkward at very first, yeah, but I subconsciously discovered the greatest way to hold it over time, and everything feels like second nature now.

Heavy base and solid feel. Constructive click buttons. Effortless, smooth rolling ball with just the correct really feel of momentum. Lots o' buttons and really configurable. Nice application. Following using only a mouse for 22 years, it was challenging to get employed to. Like understanding to eat with chopsticks or drive a stick shift, it took some acclimation and practice. The proper click button is in an akward position for my hand. If you like trackballs, this 1 is top rated-notch.

Good capabilities. Really like the use of the forward/backward buttons with a scroll wheel all whilst getting wireless. I think about my self to have a quite typical size hand for a guy but, this is just more than all terrible layout design. The ball, correct click and scroll buttons are all to far forward so your restricted on ball movement. The left, forward/backward buttons force you to push the mouse inward towards the rest of your hand causing you to grip the mouse tighter. Suitable click its to small to use. Move all attributes used for fingers closer to the hand and flatten out thumb controls so you push downward and not inward.

? Are you kidding??? Doesn't even deserve the a single star rating!!! Continual connectivity difficulties, generally (two and 3 occasions daily), having to clean the trackball and lazing ports, Even attempted wearing gloves! Will not funtion if far more than 1 plan open at a time. Serious issues here people, DO NOT WASTE YOUR Income ON THIS Solution!!! Definately NOT for multitasking. I have constructed a lot of rigs over the years, my latest getting best-o-the line (above Ŭk)and this is the initial piece of hardware to give me heartache. As a side note, I have two of these *explicative deleted* and they Each behave the exact same on all four of my rigs, so this isn't 1 of those "maybe it's just a poor a single" problems.This item is not for the skilled, or even the non-pro for that matter. I wouldn't recommend it to anybody.

My hand rests on it perfectly and comfortly. Diverse than a mouse, Trackman does not need a mouse pad or the distance that is essential for a mouse to travel mainly because Trackman is a stationary. All the buttions are customizable to your needs. Accelerate the cursor if you have a bigger monitor. Dead battery is not notified the customers. Connectivity drops rather usually. I had this Trackman for over six years and I was using it each and every day. In spite of the connectivity, Trackman saves space, and I do not have to push a heavy mouse accrossing a mousepad. With Trackman, I only scroll my fingure.

Excellent mouse - comfortable to use, incredibly precise. As some other people here pointed out, the left click button stopped functioning, creating it basically useless. I would count on this mouse to function longer for the cost I payed for it. There is one particular workaround for the broken button - you can reassign one particular of the other buttons as a left click. Sadly, it makes it not as comfortable to use, so this has now turn out to be a spare.

High good quality manufacturing.Lots and lots of tweaks available.RF wireless technology rather than IR so line of internet site is not "required".Incredibly simple cleaning, since the ball is removed simpler than most trackballs I've utilised. Wireless connectivity could be seriously improved, but it does function perfectly below "standard" positioning situations.In order to use the scroll wheel and the trackball simultaneously, the ball demands that you use your middle and ring fingers. I would have preferred a design that promotes using your index and middle fingers. Generally requires several "left clicks" prior to it really activates the link. Who knows...perhaps that's just me. Initially I didn't like this mouse at all given that it's design is various to my final trackball. I have considering that began to get really employed to it, and rather enjoy it.

Great style, lengthy battery life, incredibly comfy to use, conveniently placed buttons. Wireless antenna variety isn't long enough, sort of costly, no wired variant. This is my second one particular... the antenna on the initially a single broke when the cable ripped out of it when opening my keyboard tray and I couldn't fix it. Just maintain it in thoughts that the antenna isn't exactly the ideal constructed. Other than that, this is a good product.

I hated mice that always essential me to suspend my forearm in the air to move them or expected a lot more desk space than was easy, so I attempted this kind of pointing device years ago and under no circumstances looked back. If you've never tried a single, then this is the one particular to try. If you have, this one particular is rock solid. The optical trackball on this child is truly excellent- incredibly precise, no jumping or weirdness when you use it; it just becomes an extension of your thoughts. I system all day lengthy and could never ever go back to a mouse. I have no trouble getting the cursor where ever I require it instantly, all devoid of any work on my arm's component. It's excellent. It comes with the ability to accelerate the cursor or slow it down so you can set the speed of movement wherever it's comfy for you. it would be good if it had a non-wireless option. It takes no time to get utilized to unless you're SO set in your mousey techniques that anything else is unthinkable. You can program the 4 programmable buttons on a per system basis, so they do one issue in your editor and an additional when you're surfing or in a paint system. There's nothing at all flimsy about it, nothing at all that's produced to wear out. I've had mine for 3 years- it's in fantastic shape. Yes it expenses real funds, but the productivity savings and wear and tear on your wrist that you WON'T have make it effectively worth the investment. My assistance- go ahead and take the plunge, you won't be RMAing it and you won't be sorry.

Button layout is pretty intuitive in my opinion. I'm utilised to making use of the marble mouse getting the layout tends to make sense. Very comfortable to use when gaming or regular every day tasks. I can do with no it being wireless. I'm sure the batteries will final for a when but I just like mine wired in and not have to be concerned. If you're employed to utilizing your index/middle finger to move the trackball, then this is for you. Thumb trackball users could discover this a hit or miss.

In relation to other trackballs: Index/midddle finger operation (a excellent portion of trackballs are thumb); Smooth, ball operation (and swift to clean the three little bearings when seldom cleaning is required). Collectively this allows for quick and precise cursor movement with no arm movement and minimal had/finger effort. Don't need a mouse pad with sufficient area and arm movement space. If new to trackballs, your hand/fingers will really feel continual and day-to-day use, but not for extended - you'll swiftly get applied to it. After more than two years of operation the wheel click at times opens two hyperlinks rather of one particular, but to wait 2 years for a thing to ultimately go buggy is awesome durability. Microsoft's Trackball Explorer was my initially trackball - I employed it until it utterly died. Logitech best replicated it's trackball place/operation and improved button functionality and versatility.

Excellent placement of most buttonƥExcellent scrolling actionƦSmooth cursor movement.Easy to connect.Decent variety. Eh, a couple of difficulties right here.ƥ - The up rapid scroll button is placed as well far up to be usable, unless you have the index finger of an orangutan or some thing.Ʀ - Scroll wheel is excellent, but far more most likely than not, will quit functioning right after a year. You can return it to logitech (They say they have a 5 year warranty on their boards, three year warranty on this page, and when I bought it, it was a single year) or you can simply take ten minutes and repair it greater than what they would do. See under for how.The rubberized film stuff starts to wear off immediately after about a year, creating your mouse appears like it has leprosy.Wireless receiver is quite big, and the cord isn't affixed inside with a knot, be cautious or you WILL completely pull it out. Final, rubber feet fall off fairly swift. Okay, to repair the wheel dilemma is fairly straightforward. Remove all the screws, take apart. Locate the board inside that is for the wheel. If you look at the soldering on that board, you will see most of it is quite dull and cracked. Just resolder all the by way of-hole connections with some leaded solder, and the wheel will come back to life.Purchased this mouse when it 1st came out, believe I spent about ๠ on it. Essentially considering getting another one and see if they have improved the design and style any.
