I don't think I've ever used one, but these 'thumballs' (as I would call them) just look horrible. Is it not putting an awful workload through your thumb? If there is anyone who has one, what do you think?

I use the same as this daily..... ITS AWESOME!

utterly brilliant, I would recommend these to anyone, but especially if you have arm or shoulder issues or even just very little desk space! good price I paid a couple of quid more a few months ago but these can cost twice this from some retailers.

I think I might take a punt on it then. I do use the computer a lot (all day pretty much) and the arm (shoulder in particular) can get a bit sore. I'm thinking just having variety of input devices and mixing them up a bit should help (or maybe just use the mouse for gaming).

Brilliant device. Works on tablet and droid box as well. I paid 26.99 in Feb. Battery still going strong. Once you get used to it, you'll never want to be without it.

Heres the link to the finger operated one:

Are these better than the thumb one?

I find whatever I use, the digit that is doing the clicking starts to hurt first.
I settled on a 3M upright mouse in the end where you click with your thumb, but have to alternate with a standard mouse to even out the wear and tear.
Voted hot, great price

There SO good I just bought a spare @ this price! So have some heat OP!

I use a corded trackball every day at work, which I use almost constantly, and love it! the one I have is a very old logitech and at this price decided to upgrade....

But these are not cordless. The Kensington ones don't last IMO.

Used one of these for about a year - really great mouse. My husband has occasional flare ups of RA in his arm, elbow and wrist and this was brilliant when that happened as he didn't have to move those joints to use the mouse.

When he upgraded to a Mac we ended up switching to the Apple trackpad mouse but that's just because we are fickle and attracted by shiny objects.

During a 15 year spell, I had 2 Trackballs - thats how long they last compared to a standard mouse.
Only stopped using one as I lost the ball during a house move.
I much prefer them & when used comfortably, you dont use it with your thumb constantly bent, but more with the outside of your thumb.
Much more comfortable than a mouse as well. Remember, you are only using your fingers to mouseclick & thumb to move the trackball. With a mouse you use your wrist as well & I find my thumb is never comfortable resting against the side of a mouse.

I've had mine for two years now, outside of gaming this is perfect. Great battery life I've only changed the batteries twice. the only thing I find is that every other day you need to pop the ball out and clean the dirt of the three sensors.

Good alternative to a trackpad if you use it with an HTPC.

Hate trackpads. I use a Keysonic keyboard with a trackball built in with my HTPC. Works well.

Any idea what the difference is between UK and non-UK model (other than about £3)?

Have an older (Trackman Wheel) wired version of this which I have used almost everyday for the last 10 years (and am using now). So much better than a mouse but very 'Marmite'...you'll either love it or hate it.

Best price ever according to CamelCamel. I could not see them cheaper in other online places.
I think I will benefit from using one of this at work, so I took the plunge even when I never tried them before, and got one.

So awesome this trackball, I have one for home & work.

You just have to clean out the dead skin regularly so the ball doesn't drag from resistance.

Interesting that all the recent reviews are all so negative - has anyone actually received this?

these are brilliant, the quality is first class, the dongle is tiny so just barely sticks out on a laptop, speaking of which this trackball is great for lounging on sofa with laptop. battery lasts for ages, 1 x aa so replaceable. drivers automatically install on Windows and Linux.

its not for everyone, some people don't take to it and prefer mouse or touchpad. personally I love it and use it on all my computers, great for occasional use on media centre pc. no problems with range. if it broke tomorrow I'd buy another one

Is the warranty valid on this in the UK if it is a non-UK model? I know that some companies can be very sniffy about this - any idea what Logitech's stance is?

It's training to become the best at thumb wars!

As far as I am aware there is no difference other than the price!

Ok, thanks, ordered! Heat added.

I have one of these for my work laptop and they are fantastic. No wrist, arm or shoulder pains and certainly no thumb pain. I have an older wired version for my work desktop that i've used for 10+yrs but have just decided i'm upgrading to one of these so now i'll have 2 - doesn't mean i get my work done any quicker though.

Heat added. These are great, esp for shoulder or wrist problems and help to reduce RSI.

I can see the value for right-handed people. But there's no version for us kack-handers!!

I know we die off earlier, but in the brief time we're alive we should be allowed to use our thumbs the same way as you "normal" people :-)

The Kensington design is ambidextrous at least, but on that design I can't imagine how you'd click and drag with only one hand.

Need something to Control HTPC, also good enogh for websurfing and writing long comments, what do you use?
curious

How are you trackball users/converts dealing with no scroll wheel?

Lack of a scroll wheel is what is putting me off a trackball.

Edit - I know the one is this deal has a wheel, but I was thinking of the other one linked to further up.

I tend to just use the cursor keys.

Bearing in mind, mine is used mainly with an HTPC (and sometimes my laptop - which has a terrible keyboard/trackpad) so I don't do vast amounts of browsing with it.

But what mine does have is the trackball in the top right corner of the keyboard, and the left/right mouse buttons are in the top left. Which works perfectly when you're sat on the sofa and holding the keyboard. And the keyboard itself is as good as a normal full size one. And has a number pad.

It is a fantastic Trackball. At this price buy two!

Where's the lefty version?! Leftism...shocking

These are great and I also use one daily with my work laptop. Now ordering another for the home laptop!

I still use a PS/2 Logitech Trackball that I bought around 20 years ago and it still works. If their quality has remained at that level, I'll happily try their new wireless version.

Thanks for pointing this out, OP. Heat added.

My old Logitech Trackball has no scroll wheel, but it does have a scroll-lock button that is easy to click on and off. I expect the modern ones are similar.

Expired now gone up in price!
