Orbit Wireless Mobile Trackball

 

I've owned and used a laptop computer since late 2001. In that time I've always used the trackpad; I was happy with it. Recently I decided that I needed a little more control than I was getting with the trackpad, so I bought a wireless mouse. I love...

OK

 

The reason for the four stars...I don't like the scroll ring...hard to control. I mainly bought for the wireless and trackball feature, otherwise it is a strange design.

Kensington Wireless Trackball

 

An excellent product. Use it in my chair with my Laptop, very easy to use and works well.Wish there were better instructions on the Trackball about cleaning it and taking it apart, but easy enough to figure out. Trackball stays in with no problem.

I love this mouse

 

This is an awesome mouse. I get around 6 months out of the battery. The mouse moves smoothly and accurately. I don't have a problem with the range. In fact I can be in the next room and the mouse still works. Every once in a while the mouse will stop...

Wireless ; Long battery life ; Precise movement ; Micro sensor

Poor wireless connection

 

As other people have noted the scroll ring is inconveniently placed. Planning to return it.

Underwhelmed

 

My MS Wireless 8000 mouse purchased in 2007 is more precise, has a good battery indicator and a great scroll wheel. I couldn't deal with the touch scroll so opened it and disconnected the touch scroll circuit board. Now I don't have to deal with...

Trackball works pretty good

Scroll feature is garbage. Doesn't work when you touch it and works when you accidentally touch the touch scroll ; The only low battery indicator is when the trackball stops working ; Touch scroll cannot be disabled through the software ; It's not...

Wireless is awesome

 

As a quadriplegic I love trackballs, in particular the logitech marble mouse, but the wire always breaks somehow... finding this kensington is great. i've used it for nearly a month and think it's great. the scroll ring is a bit of a inconvenience, but...
