    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 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:

      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 have small hands and I'm prone to shorting out every cord I come across. I needed wireless fast as my Kensington Orbit Optical Trackball keep shorting out. 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.

          Trackball works fine but the scrolling function is erratic. Relies on a sensor rather than mechanical input, and there is no way to adjust sensitivity in the software.

          Comments about Kensington Orbit Wireless Mobile Trackball Mouse:

          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 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.
