5 out of 5 eggsGreat trackball

Pros: Smooth action, great button placement, scroll works great, inexpensive.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I use it for CADD, and alternate right and left hands. It's accurate and smooth. Button placement is better than the LogiTech.

5 out of 5 eggsMade me a fan of trackball mice

Pros: Just set up my 2009 MBP with a 24inch monitor on my desk and needed a mouse and keyboard to finish the setup. I bought a standard laser mouse but since I was used to a trackpad, I felt like there was a lot of wasted movement. The scroll wheel is much more intuitive and effective that I had thought. Very stable while on desk. Even though this only has 2 buttons (3 using trackball works), I prefer it to the multi-gesture trackpad.

In brief: accurate, effective, and intuitive.

Cons: Only has 2 buttons, although using trackball works software adds one more button (simultaneous L/R button click) which adds mission control for mac.

Other Thoughts: Just set up my 2009 MBP with a 24inch monitor on my desk and needed a mouse and keyboard to finish the setup. I bought a standard laser mouse but since I was used to a trackpad, felt like there was a lot of wasted movement. Decided to

5 out of 5 eggsworks well

Pros: This track ball does everything I ask of it, very accurate and unlike other reviewers my buttons / clicks are of a good feel and fall naturally under fingers. The scroll wheel is very nice for documents.. I've had no issues with the cord quality or moving the trackball about dislodging the wrist support. It's not suppose to move. It's a track ball not a mouse. I've had no use for the wrist support in reality. heel of hand rests on the trackball itself and very little movement of hand / wrist is required.

Cons: none, works well and reliably

Other Thoughts: I'm probably buying two more to replace the other trackballs i have to use on other pc's.

3 out of 5 eggsJust ok

Pros: It is an ok trackball. I wanted to get back into trackball mouse for gaming. This is not what it is for. Its smooth and works like it supposed to but was hoping a bit more. I would recommend for web browsing and data scrolling. The ring works great for that.

Cons: Just simple, price

Other Thoughts: It came with extra wrist pad for comfort. I found a great mouse for gaming and its the Shogun Bros. Ballista MK-I 82 Wired Pro 8200 dpi Commander Series

5 out of 5 eggsBest mouse for accuracy

Pros: Very stable base. mouse pointer moves with just a light touch from the finger. No wrist movement needed. Includes scroll wheel in perfect location, around the trackball. Very accurate for artwork. The "clicking" sound is not as loud as other mice, which allows me to do my work without waking up my wife. It also as a "soft" feel to it beneath my palm. The buttons are of a pliable plastic - a high quality feel to the overall construction.

Cons: Only one color option, black. I wanted a white trackball to go with my white keyboard and white laptop on my white desk. The kensington trackball mice of the past were light grey, a better color.

Other Thoughts: I use out my mice rather quickly, but I believe this one will last longer.

5 out of 5 eggsSuper equipment

Pros: -Very beneficial in standing computer station environment, reduction in the movement required to interact with the computer over a mouse.
-Scroll function is extremely easy to use, you can hold shift to scroll the horizontal bar if you need to
-Once you have built up some muscle memory, you have far more control in tight areas. this is because you can do clicks without any motion of the ball, and small motions are also very easy, so this equipment is better than a mouse if you have deal with multiple points of focus that are close to each other in your software

Cons: Learning curve for muscle memory. For right handed use the left click happens with your thumb. The first time you put your hand on this, you can barely click because of old muscle memory, causes you to bump the ball while trying to click. It was similar but less severe for me for left clicking with ring/pinky that typically have done no clicking for me in the past

Other Thoughts: I needed a pointing device to address hand pain in my standing PC setup. This brought more benefits as well as I haven't had any more pain

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Mouse

Pros: Very easy to learn. Smooth operation. Easy to keep clean. Pricing was very reasonable. Doesn't require a lot of deask room for usage. Scroll ring is super easy to manuver.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: If you purchase this be aware that it will make your hand/thumb sore for a few days until you get the hang of it. Also, the palm rest isn't attached. If you scoot the mouse around, it will come unattached. (It's slightly finicky when reattaching)

3 out of 5 eggsOkay

Pros: Trackball motion is nice. The provided wrist rest gives a very nice feel.

Cons: Scroll wheel broke after about a year.

Other Thoughts: It's too bad there aren't more options for trackballs. When it works, ergonomically, it feels very good. But I would expect to get more than a year out of a $40 mouse.

1 out of 5 eggsBIGGEST NewEgg Disappointment

Pros: Nice shape, and the scroll ring is a nice touch.

Cons: I haven't even been using it for a week and it's begun to malfunction. The buttons won't accept a normal press, they have to be pressed very hard. The screen scrolls randomly when the left button is pressed.

Other Thoughts: The entire purchase experience with this trackball was unpleasant. UPS tried to deliver it to my apartment complex during lunch on Friday. Of course the office was closed, so they held on to it until the next Tuesday. Now the equipment is failing after less than 1 week of use? Nope. They got my money this time but Kensington never will again.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it!

Pros: The trackball is very accurate, great for gaming. I LOVE the scroll ring! Nice overall build and comfortable to use.

Cons: The buttons feel a tad loose when clicking, but no real issue they work AOK.

Other Thoughts: If you like trackballs and what one for games also, this is a winner!
