    I love this mouse. It's wireless, the trackball is located in the middle so you use your forefinger, not your thumb, to navigate, and best of all, if it's dropped or falls off the surface it's on, the trackball doesn't come out! I have spent too much time searching for stray trackballs. Buy it now!

    I have been using Kensington Trackballs for a long time (Expert Mouse and it's predecessors) and always loved the way they worked. I bought this one because I wanted to lose the wire. This Trackball is a bit of a disappointment to me. I love being free of cord, but I miss not having four buttons, which greatly expanded the capability of the Expert Mouse. Perhaps worse though, this trackball has a tendancy to "hang" for no apparent reason, and quite frequently. With the Expert Mouse when a "hang" occurred it was a clear signal that the housing needed to be cleaned out of any dust and debris that might have gathered under the ball. A quick clean out would instantly solve the problem. Not so with this one. Can't explain it, but I'll probably go back to my wired Expert Mouse. If only it didn't "hang"...

      It's small enough for a travelling track ball but sturdy enough (will not move) so that it stays in place.

        Comments about Kensington Orbit Wireless Mobile Trackball Mouse:

        Just got it to replace a Logitech wireless m570. The Kensington mouse is more precise than the M570. The touch scroll is easier to use than the scroll wheel although I wouls like to see a button to convert the ball to a scroll function.

          Very smooth and well made. I love the size and shape but the buttons are a bit of a reach. I love the touch scrolling! I don't accidentally scroll like some have reported and the position is perfect. I have always used a trackball (Logitech Marble) so I adjusted to this one in a few minutes. Mouse users may take a few days to transition but it is worth it. I now get annoyed when I have to use a mouse and I run out of room on the mouse pad. Never happens with the Wireless Orbit!

            Comments about Kensington Orbit Wireless Mobile Trackball Mouse:

            I have used Kensington track balls for about 15 or more years as they allow me to draw straight lines easily when plotting in Autocad. I design and modify passenger vessels and so precision is very important to me when plotting and the horizontal ball doesn't require reorientation of the reflexes like the vertical balls do. Worse yet, most of the others are just at an angle and not square to the world. This is my least favorite of all the balls I have previously had as the clicks are on the side instead of the top and the screen up/down function is from a sensor around the ball mounting opening instead of a wheel and I am old and have cold hands so I find the sensor somewhat insensitive to my requests, otherwise, I like it, it's physically small in size and so fits in my pack easily and I'm using it with a laptop,, so they make a nice pair. It's wireless sensor requires the use of one USB port. Too bad it doesn't just communicate through my wifi network and leave the USB ports to printers, plotters, etc. If this were a perfect world I would choose the old Kensington configuration of four programmable click buttons on the top surrounding the ball and a moving circle around the ball opening for up down moves. I accept that this is the new world order and not enough of us bought the old style balls to make it pay for Kensington and so they have come out with this compact model, and I will get used to it! It works nicely in small spaces.

              The old Logitech trackball was giving me fits since upgrading to Mt. Lion and was as bad or worse with the Maverick operating system. I made sure the trackball had the latest firmware and was clean but it still had trouble selecting, "dragging and dropping" and scrolling so I bought the Kensington trackball. It worked perfectly right away. (I had downloaded the driver first.)

                  Comments about Kensington Orbit Wireless Mobile Trackball Mouse:

                  It's pretty small for travel, which is why I bought this trackball. Microsoft Trackball Explorer is still a much more comfortable trackball, but not manufactured anymore. The actual ball of this one is pretty small, and the left button is comfortable enough, but the right not so much. I also keep scrolling accidently by touching the areas by the ball. Still beats any mouse I think.

I loved that mouse so much. If only that design were wireless. YOU HEAR THAT KENSINGTON? MAKE THE ORBIT OPTICAL DESIGN WIRELESS THANK YOU! ;)

                  Overall good product. My wife is a graphic designer and finds this type of mouse effective for her job's demands. The only issue she has had is the track ball not being big enough. An increase in size would have made it perfect. She recommends it.

                  There are not many wireless trackballs out there to choose from. There are some VERY nice ones from exotic manufacturers, but they are hundreds of dollars. This one works for me. Only complaints are: I wish it was about 10%-20% bigger for a slightly larger hand. Also, the TrackballWorks software works great BUT sometimes exhibits some odd bugs in Windows 7 requiring you to unplug and replug the usb receiver.

                  I bought this for an elderly family member to use while playing card games.
                  I prefer trackballs to mice & the wireless feature works very well w/ a large monitor at a distance from the computer. The touch pad like scroll feature which is adjacent to the ball is a problem that would be better disabled for my application & causes unintended scrolling. The driver should offer an option to adjust sensitivity or preferably disable the scroll feature.

                    Comments about Kensington Orbit Wireless Mobile Trackball Mouse:

                    I like my new trackball, and use it with my computer on a daily basis. One of the things I think is really great is the ability, as a one armed man, to use the trackball completely with just a left arm. I really appreciate the fact that the trackball is centrally located on the mouse.
