This is the nicest mouse-device i've ever used.
So, why is this better than a mouse?
Firstly - forget that RSI, wrist ache - the movement here is mostly your thumb, you arm stays steady.
Next - if you have someone who "shudders" when they try to click buttons on a mouse, this is idea - the trackman stays nice and steady.
Why is this better than other trackballs?
Other trackball devices require you to use your fingers, darn stupid that cos you can't move and click (making those devices useless for gaming)

I've had people complain that trackballs are not as accurate as mice for gaming, but I'm not normally a twitch-and-shoot gamer, I play MMORPGs (Eve and LOTRO) and rpg and strategy games and this is perfect, I feel more in control with the trackball than a mouse.

I started using a trackball due to a lack of elbow space when using a laptop on the move, you can happily sit cross-armed or cramped on a 'plane and still have full mouseability with this baby.

Yes, I keep buying them - prefer the wired versions for a couple of reasons - no batteries needed for one and, well, you dont *move* the device so having a tail doesn't matter the way it does for a normal mouse. The wireless ones i've had have suffered from "broken battery compartment syndrome", but the wired ones seem to last forever.

Verified Purchase
Using a Microsoft Trackerball mouse for years of artwork, has given me serious RSI symptoms from constant use of the middle finger on the "ball" mechanism. So I solved this with the "wired" version of the Logitech Trackman Wheel - you use your thumb for the rollerball (to move the cursor around the screen) not the middle finger. (Do NOT confuse it with the Logitech Marble Mouse - NOT the same thing!)
The Logitech Trackman Wheel is just a FANTASTIC design! The "wired" version, being quite big, fits the hand comfortably - your hand just relaxes onto it. The thumb operates the "ball" (the cursor), the fingers just rest on the other buttons and wheel - a quick downward pressure of Index Finger for "left click" and same with Ring Finger for "right click". The "wheel" (operated without exaggerated movement of the Middle Finger) is very responsive, easy to move up and down the page quickly - but for multiple page scrolling, just "click" the wheel to lock it onto "scrolling" mode, and then with minimal use of your thumb on the "ball", scroll up, down or left and right - as fast or slow as you like - fantastically quick and responsive.
Holding down the left button with the Index Finger and operating the ball with the Thumb for long-distance "drag & drop" or large areas of "highlighting", does require some concentration at first. Persevere - it's worth it!
I've only used the factory settings, but it comes with a "CD" so you can customise the buttons.
Being a static mouse you can place it on any surface - I use it on the arm of my chair (or even my thigh!) so my elbow is comfortably supported - my RSI is non-existent when using the Logitech Trackman Wheel!!

This mouse is precise and versatile. Responds accurately and allows fast and fine movements to be made.
I had one a few years ago, and was very pleased to be able to obtain a replacement.
I use it from editing photographs to gaming. e.g. bejeweled, which requires fast and furious reponses from the mouse..... excellent and would recommend.

I was given a previous version of the Logitech Trackman Wheel 8 years ago and used it with notebook computers every day until recently. Going by the pictures of this product, the difference between the mouse I have and the one on sale here, is the absence of illuminated arrows beside the mouse ball.

I found the device durable: it must have dropped on the floor a hundred times and it never gave me a problem.

It is also comfortable, though after using it without pause for a while, my thumb and wrist will tire. I'm not an ergonomics expert, so can't say whether this mouse promotes healthy hand positions.

I've used this trackball in three ways:
+ Using my notebook computer at arms length, for example reading documents, watching movies, browsing the web, anything that isn't keyboard intensive. Mouse Gesture software makes the mouse even more handy for using the computer at a distance.
+ Playing games with one hand on the keyboard, the mouse hand in a comfortable position in my lap or on an arm-rest. Not competitive gaming: casual single person FPS, adventure, strategy, and puzzle gaming.
+ Using a USB mouse with my laptop, away from a desk.

Only recently, the trackball finally stopped working. The part that gave out was the cable where it connected to the base of the mouse. Before buying another I will experiment to see if I can repair the one I have.

While I recommend this product, I ran into two kinds of difficulty with it:
- At some point the red mouse ball itself was damaged. I don't know how, exactly, as the ball is solid and not at all delicate, but a ridge developed in the ball making is necessary to reposition the ball in the socket occasionally. This doesn't seem like it would be a common problem.
