Kensington Orbit Trackball with Scroll Ring

 

If you're tired of mouse-related wrist injuries but don't like trackballs because of the lack of a scroll wheel, then the Orbit Trackball makes a lot of sense at a surprisingly acceptable price.

Integrated scroll wheel works really well ; Includes wrist rest ; Ball can be juggled around for inspiration

Wrist rest may over-extend fingers ; Scroll wheel feels a little loose ; Still tethered by a cable

Trackballs remain a niche product, partly due to the different set of mousing skills they supply, partly due to the price premium that most trackballs command and partly due to the lack of feature parity with even the cheapest mice. The Kensington...

Scroll ring almost unusable

 

I prefer a trackball to a mouse, but this was disappointing. As opposed to scrolling on my Gigabyte mouse, the scroll wheel surrounding the ball is imprecise. There's a sense of click-click rather than smooth movement.

Trackball inherently better than mouse

Scroll wheel is coarse

DANG

 

Rollerball, stays put

Cord shorter than what I have by about a foot

Works well, but not enough buttons

 

Unfortunately the lack of additional buttons beyond the 2 is going to be a show stopper for any serious trackball user. This is 2015 and the market seems wide open for a full-featured trackball, but Kensington continues to miss the boat. You'd be silly...

Fairly smooth operation, scroll wheel works nicely. On sale at $20

Slightly short cord, lacks essential buttons that nearly every other decent pointing device has

Missing back navigation button

 

This trackball works great other than missing the back and forward buttons that are used a lot by me. The construction is good and the scroll ring was easy to get used to and has a smooth action.

Great Trackball

 

I've been looking for a replacement to my old logitech trackball (my particular version is no longer made) and this is an excellent replacement. Scroll ring and ball is quite smooth. Easy to clean. The soft rubber wrist rest is a nice feature. Very...

comfortable, scroll wheel is smooth

right and left buttons are a bit too far apart

Best scroll control for parsing through data!

 

If you are looking for a mouse that delivers amazing scroll speed and control, this is the one for you. Looking at large amount of packet info on WireShark, DONE! LOVE IT!

Price is reasonable

 

Need more refinement of the tracking response and accuracy but the price is reasonable for its quality and performace.

Worth The Money

 

Worked very well but was just to light for a man. For kids or a woman would work just fine. Great deal for them.
