Style Name: 2 Button - Scroll Ring
I've never used a track ball before and was a little weary about buying this at first but am now so glad i did. Take a little getting used to at first but after a week you'll wounder how you managed without. General computer use is great as your not sawing you arm up and down the desk and the scroll ring is top notch. This really comes into play when using photoshop where you can use it to zoom in and out and scroll left right, up down with ease. Really can't say enough about this product. Best money ever spent!

I bought this from Amazon to replace a similar mechancial ball, which was my second one of these. After having problems with dirt affecting the rollers on the mechanical ones, the optical one is much better. It picks up some dust but that never prevents the ball working, it just makes it jerky and can be easily cleaned. It is very reliable and fits the hand well. It was worth the money.

Style Name: 2 Button - Scroll Ring
I have tried out many trackball devices recently and they all seem to be flawed in some way - either they force your hand into a particular position (which often is uncomfortable for my large hands) or they don't include features that I've come to rely on (e.g. the scroll wheel or a middle button).

With the Kensington the two buttons are further 'forward' than other devices such as the marble mouse and I find this more comfortable. Also because the device is symmetrical there's no issue with using it either right or left handed. There's no middle button but once you've installed the Kensington software you can set it up so that both buttons clicked together simulate a middle click which works well for me and is useful in Windows 7.

The scroll ring doesn't have any resistance so I had to play with the scroll speed settings until I found a speed I was comfortable with. However it does mean that with a little practice you can 'flick' it to scroll a larger distance which can be handy sometimes.

Some people say the supplied wrist rest doesn't fit very well but it seems secure enough to me as long as you attach it in the correct manor, plus as you're not moving it around on the desk it seems to stay in place ok. However, although it IS made of a rubber like material, it is quite hard and doesn't really offer much in the way of comfort. Some softer gel based material would be much better I think.

The trackball itself is exactly the same size as the one in the Logitech marble mouse, and trying them side by side there's not much difference in the action of the mechanism. The Kensington feels almost as smooth as the Logitech, but the marble mouse feels a little more 'weighty'. It's really very subjective and the difference is tiny.

When I was looking at this trackball here at Amazon there were two very negative reviews but I have had such good experiences with Kensington trackballs and this one looked perfect for my use and so I bought it. I am very glad I did because it is excellent.

I first started using trackballs in 1992 when I was living in a tiny flat in London. Space was so limited that I did not have enough space to use a regular mouse so I bought a Kensington trackball for my Mac LCII and soon I realised it was a superb input device.

Today I use the brilliant Kensington Expert Mouse (it is a trackball) with my Mac Pro, but I also have a MacBook Pro and when I am travelling I wanted a petite trackball to use with it. I searched Amazon and of course this little Kensington trackball looked just right.

And it is just right! The two negative reviews are understandable. One person just couldn't get on with it, and to be honest I think that if you have never used a trackball then this little one would seem hard to get used to after a regular mouse. Another person found that his little finger would not work well with this trackball, however I find the trackball to fit my hand very well, and I have quite large hands.

Smaller trackballs are harder to get used to than the bigger ones so I recommend keeping this trackball for a while and try getting used to it, if you find it disconcerting at first. This trackball is very free in movement, which I like, but at first it might seem rather lively. Soon however you will readjust to it and it will seem very natural and extremely fast and accurate.

This little trackball has a very clever system for scrolling. This is done by moving your fingers around touch sensors either side of the trackball. It works well for me.

Recently I have changed from a mouse to a trackball to relieve RSI. This is the beast I chose. It does look a bit of a beast, but it is so comfortable to use, and the wrist support included is a real innovation compared to others.

I used to use a thumbwheel a few years ago but I find the "Expert" far more comfortable.

It is comfortable to use, and allows great pointer control and options.

Features and flexibility are great also. Scroll ring is great idea, but I agree (with a previous reviewer) a little cheap and tacky in feel - but what the hell - it works fine!

Areas I would suggest could be improved?

- make it wireless

(there used to be a wireless version I think, but discontinued).

I have one of these at work and was carrying to and from home to use in evenings - I am now buying a second one to keep at home.

After 2 weeks I already feel a difference in my RSI - almost gone!!

Even if you do not have RSI, this is a great alternative to a mouse.
