Very happy with my purchase. One less wired to worry about. Easy to install. Works perfectly. Very good price. Word of advice, buy online and pick up at the store. It was less expensive to purchase that way.

I have been using Logitech track ball for many years. My mouse switch was worn out. I preferred the corded unit. I had gotten a wireless several years ago when I got a new laptop. It is great so I got the second one to replace my worn out one. I was concerned about interference with the one I already had. I immediately tested and both of them are independent of each other. I did take the red ball from the old one and put it into the new one so I can easily tell them apart.
This is our 3rd Logitech trackball device. We have 3 pc's and all 3 are going strong The first one was purchased almost 10 years ago and still works just fine. This is our first wireless one and I'm extremely impressed with how easy it worked right out of the box. Plug the receiver into the usb port and it was recognized instantly on our new laptop running windows 7 (64bit)... It's not to ofter I'll take the time to right a review on a product. It has to be really good or really bad. This is a really great product. If you never used one take a chance and try it out for a week. You can always send it back but I'm pretty confident you'll be a convert after using it.
Love "thumbwheel" mice
I have always used "thumbwheel mice". I have heard that they reduce the instances of carpel tunnel syndrome. I don't know if that is actually true but it seems like it should be true because your wrist stays pretty stationary and just your thumb moves on the wheel. To me they feel very comfortable but I am used to them. An advantage (or disadvantage) to them is when someone sits down at my computer they just can't operate it with any sort of efficiency or speed not having used one before. I can see this being good or bad depending on if you want people to use your computer! For me I find them very effective and maybe more efficient than a standard mouse. As with any rollerball, occasionally they will need cleaning because lint gets inside the ball socket area. If you find that the mouse loses effectiveness over time, that is probably what the issue is. Give it a good cleaning and it will be good as new again.
What I was looking for
My old gaming mouse was giving up on me. I wanted something with decent precision for drawing and drafting at work, and I'm also a programmer so I use mostly the keyboard for everything else. I feel much better using this trackball as I don't have to move my arm all over the place. It's precise enough for my work, and the software for it seems very reliable and full of features. You can set up the wheel click, up, and down buttons for just about anything (scrolling, shortcut keys,etc). You can also save those button preferences and have them automatically load whenever you open a certain program...example, the up/down buttons can be used for forward/back while surfing the web, but when you use Word or Excel they can act like scroll buttons. Battery life seems to be awesome, after a couple weeks it's telling me it has about 481 days left, and seems to be accurate(not skipping days on the countdown or anything). I was unsure if I'd like the trackball, but fell in love with it, and this mouse is great for the price!
Excellent alternative to a mouse.
The trackball works very well, and has several flexible functions. The button functions can be changed to accommodate both left and right-handed users. The trackball body form is designed to support the user's hand so movement is restricted to fingers moving the control buttons and thumb moving the tracking ball. The driver installation was automatic once the USB wireless receiver was plugged into the USB port on my laptop, and the trackball power switch turned on. The system was connected to the internet, and the trackball initiated driver installations immediately. I'm not a great fan of technology because so much of it doesn't work properly consistently. Putting this system into operation was very easy, and it has worked extremely well for me. I recommend this product for anyone tired of using a mouse. It is very comfortable and doesn't require hand movement to accomplish communications with the cursor.
Not happy with getting a defective mouse sent
The mouse came and it didn't have the piece that plugs in the computer. I called customer service and she said that it was defective. She was supposed to send me a return label in my email, and I never received the label. I will have to call back again.
