I do not have much to say about this trackball. Except BUY ONE. I've been using Logitech's other wireless, optical trackball until I recieved this one as a gift. Super easy to setup and use. If or when this one wears out, breaks or whatever I will buy another one. I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium and it runs perfect with it. I highly recommend this product.
very easy to use and set up no problams using with windows 7 just need a few more buttons
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.
I bought this mouse after using numerous optic mouse. I was worried at the beginning that it would take a lot of time to become accustom to the mouse but was surprised how easy it was to use and get comfortable with. The trackball glides almost effortlessly under your thumb, sometimes to fast without realizing how quickly you have moved it. The forward and back buttons are nice to have especially when using a search engine or researching something online and need to jump back and forth between pages. I really like the convenience of using this mouse with a laptop on a laptop stand and not needing room to move the mouse around. Being able to leave the mouse stationary and yet still use it is very convenient especially if you have a very small or limited area of a workspace. I definitely recommend this product to anyone that is looking for a different mouse. It is NOT a gaming mouse and personally would not like it as one, But it is an excellent mouse for all uses on a pc.
So far - works fine just like the wired one. No problems.
Track balls rock.. no more moving your whole hand around to use a pointer. it is useable in the air, on ANY surface including the bed the arm of a chair or couch. I still have the previous (wired) version from years ago, just bought this for the wireless aspect. Like the OFF switch. Although I forget to use it alot. Still had it for 3 months on the same batteries so far.
Great job Logitech as usual.
This model is a good fit for me. The shape and size of the unit fits comfortably with my hand. The ball size is good and moves very smoothly. My previous Logitech was Laser model. That model had a zoom button and 'hot' button to bring up your choice of search (i.e. Google, Bing, etc.) This trackball did away with those for some reason. Had they been kept would have given it 5 stars for expectations. The 2 buttons for back and forward on web page takes a little getting used to. The size of the buttons allows slight rocking motion with your index finger, but works fine. If you are not used to a trackball, be patient and give yourself some time. Cutting/pasting takes practice as does dragging files from window to window. You have to hold the left-click while rolling the ball to position the file where you want it. Overall, it is a good product and would recommend.
I bought this mouse to use with my lap top. I liked the on off switch. I don't have to take the battery out of the mouse when I store it in my lap top case. I also liked the idea of the track ball which lets the mouse stay in one spot on the table. This is very handy when you are setting at a small table in a restaurant and don't have much room to move around. The track ball took me about a week to get used to it. I have one minor complaint, and that is when you get your cursor on an object that you want to click on, you move your thumb just as you click a button, but then again it may be just me. I would buy this mouse again.
AS MY WIFE IS UNABLE TO COMETO THE DEN TO USE COMPUTER I SET UP ON MY 37" VIZIO TV AND A COMPUTER....THEY ARE GREAT TO HAVE THE MOUSE,TV & KEYBOARD SO EASY TO USE. PERFECT FIT !!!!! EASY TO USE AND ABLE TO GET EVERYTHING ONLINE
was working well for the person this was purchased for
I have been a 'wired' Logitech Trackball user for some time. Finding the wired models no longer available, I purchased the listed model. I use Ubuntu Linux, and purchased this product with hopes I could make it work. To my surprise, it was basically, plug & play. I am Very pleased with this Logitech product.
I uss my flat screen 45 inch tv for my computer and I was using a wireless mouse, what a pain that was, this track ball works great I can't believe I waited so long
Great mouse if you like thumb wheels, which I do. Nice to see the universal USB connector that will work with other Logitech wireless hardware. It is was overpriced but it was worth spending the money for something that I wanted.
This is the 2nd trackball mouse but the first cordless one I've owned. It is great! There is no fatigue that is associated with the regular mouse. Well worth the extra pennies if you use it all the time like I do.
This mouse does cost a bit more but it is worth it if you do a significant amount of panning across your screen. Your mouse cursor is moved about by simply flicking your thumb and can be done with precision making it good for graphic and CAD work. No more sliding your entire mouse around. This is why it is also good for using with a laptop (along with being wireless). You can sit on your couch and place this mouse on your armrest and not worry about having a flat surface like you would with a standard mouse. Also has extra buttons that can be programed to suit your needs. Just bought this second one for at home.
Some minor changes I would make to a super / great trackball. Bring the price down a bit. Add a place to store the USB part of the package as I have one and move it from work to home / home to work everyday. Better directions for us old folks (still don't know what the 2 small buttons are for). I understand that you may say I'm crazy for saying the above things and giving it such a high rating. Well I still feel you will love the "Logitech Wirelass Trackball Mouse" after you try it, and if Logitech adds any or all of my ideas I will order a new one. Comfort was the main reason I ordered this trackball, and I got comfort plus.
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.
Responsive, easy to use, no-brainer setup, and precise control. If you are tired of chasing your mouse around your desk then you should buy this trackball. It takes a little while to get used to it, but the minimal time investment pays off in the long run.
was having problems getting used to track pad on my Dell laptop purchased trackball PROBLEM SOLVED I am happy now! very easy to use
I love it... my old logitech trackball mouse was much the same, I used it for more than a decade, now I am wireless ...
