-------
The Kensington Orbit Optical Wired USB Trackball is PC or Mac. This is probably the best track ball ever, for whatever price, its ball moves smoothly. It's around the size of a ping pong ball.

The other track balls have some problem. For example, my Microsoft Trackball Explorer has buttons under the thumb which felt awkward. The Logitech M570 Trackball Cordless has very good button placement, a scroll wheel and the track ball under the thumb makes for very quick pointer movement, but it is difficult to position the pointer precisely with your thumb.

This one, on the other hand, has everything correct:

There are no drivers just plug and use.
The price is reasonable.
The size is suitable for large or small hands.
The ball is positioned under the fingers for precise positioning and it spins freely from the start.
There is a scroll ring and it spins smoothly and freely.
The buttons are a bit further from the ball than I expected, but one quickly adapts and their position means that the force is primarily downwards rather than sideways, which reduces the unit's tendency to move on a smooth surface.

This trackball was just not usable for me - the ergonomics are all wrong. I have used a trackball since the early Microsoft ones but the design of this model has not been thought out. Firstly the ball is free standing and has a habit of falling out and rolling about when the unit is moved. Secondly the placement of the buttons is surprisingly awkward, making it difficult to use. Whilst I would not recommend this one, I accept you probably get what you pay for - the Logitec M512 is usually about 3 times the price of this. All in all, it's one I will keep for a spare machine, but could not use day to day.

Some mentioned the scroll wheel as being poor, "gritty" or the like. On mine, bought in 2014, it is as smooth as one could wish. I can not comment on how long it will stay like that, but out of the box it is fine.

I do find the ball is too sensitive and easy to move. I wish the ball had a bit more resistance to movement. It responds to a mosquitoe's fart. All it takes is for me to breath, and my finger moves, and so does the pointer. A mouse has a bit of resistance to movement, friction between the mouse and desk. Enough to damp out breathing and heart beat. It is just too responsive.

The buttons are not responsive enough, requiring too much effort to click. Click a button, and the finger on the ball moves marginally, and off shoots mouse pointer....

Not bad, but not 5 stars.

Plug and Play on XUbunto ok even I could not find settings. The Ball and the Ring works fine but
the buttons only work at the very front and are far apart. Maybe good if you have large hands even mine are not small.
I would look for better but I guess the prices is ok.
I use it now with both hands.

Whilst not on the cheap side, this product is excellent: sturdy, comfortable and reliable. For those who spend long hours working on the PC, it is ideal to prevent repetitive strain injury from the use of a regular mouse. The inclusion of the scroll wheel (in this particular model) is not only a nice touch but also very useful in avoiding excessive gestures when browsing web pages or long documents. Movement is precise and the feel of the "ball" is very comfortable. It also comes with an extension wrist rest that can be detached if not needed. USB cable length is also good. All in all, a very good product that exceeds the performance of many others from other brands.

It is a great concept and I really like how this type of mouse improves my workflow. I wish there would be more mice like this on the market but this one is far from being perfect. It's made out of cheap plastic and it could use a bit more designing. The soft pad for resting your wrist attaches to the mouse in a very diy manner. There's basically a separate piece of plastic connecting the two parts (mouse and the pad) and it falls off every time you move the mouse. It looks more like a prototype...

This trackball requires my digits to perform actions they are not designed for.
The Scoll Ring works when it feels like it.
Disappointed.
I wanted a Logiteck M570 but was put off by reviews. Thumb trackballs are ergomomically correct.
Wasted my money here. Ugh!

This trackball is really good. I would say excellent or perfect except for one tiny flaw. Usint the scroll crown is not as smooth as I would like, but it always works. It just feels a bit bumpy.
The ball is really smooth though and I use it professionally all day every day with no ergonomic issues.
It's also very easy to clean.
If it breaks, I will buy this product again, if it's available.
