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...

I've been using trackballs since the late 80s because I've hated using a mouse. The Microsoft Trackball Explorer was always my favorite but, after my last one died, I needed to replace it with something different because they no longer make them. I...

Comfortable, Love the Scroll Wheel, Works just as well on PC and Mac

Innards tend to get gunked up quicker then other trackballs that I've used. Easy to clean, though, so this is a minor complaint

Good value


I was shopping for a replacement for my Microsoft Trackball Explorer (RIP), and this one seemed to come the closest. I'm satisfied with everything except for the hard click sound the buttons make. It makes me feel like I need to press the button down...
