    SlimBlade Trackball is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 39.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tops for Ease, Comfort and Precision I'm at the computer 12 hours/day and I find a trackball much better than a mouse for my hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder. My Logitech Trackball developed floating cursor and I couldn't cure it. I looked at lots of recommendations from friends and relatives, but no one mentioned the Kensington SlimBlade Trackball. I found it on my own, and it is perfect for me. The large ball makes for easy cursor precision. Its simple clean design is very appealing to me. It's the easiest least stressful pointing device I've ever used. (I started out with a CPM machine so some of you will have an idea of how many pointing devices I may have used over the years.)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product needs one fix I'm an editor and I've been using Kensington Trackballs for ages. The large trackball enables you to effortlessly zoom around the screen and programmable keys help speed up your workflow. I especially like to have a return or enter key located on a button. My one complaint is that for some reason you can only program one keystroke for each button and chord. Older versions of TrackBallWorks used to allow you to program a string of characters per button but that function has been removed for some reason. What's up with that Kensington?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Legend Lives On! I've been using Kensington trackballs for about 16 years. I forget what they called the with one with the wheels but that was my first. I moved to expert mouse when optical technology came out. I still use an Expert Mouse wireless, an Expert Mouse, and now this SlimBlade. Believe me folks NOBODY makes a trackball as smooth as Kensington. I got this SlimBlade to use with my HP laptop because I just couldn't stand the products offered by Microsoft and Logitech. The SlimBlade has a unique way of scrolling by twisting the ball and after two weeks I see the death of the scroll wheel on the horizon - it's that intuitive. If you want a trackball save the money you'll waste on a MS or Logitech ball and pay the few dollars more for the Kensington. You won't go back.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best PC Navigation Interface Always preferred trackballs over mice. They take a little time to adjust but once you do, the difference is amazing. This model is extremely comfortable and customizeable to suit your preferences as to how the four plate style buttons function. The possibilities of increasing your level of comfort and productivity are unmatched by any other trackball I've seen before. The ball itself serves not only for pointer/cursor control but scrolls when twisted with varying levels of sensitivity that can be easily adjusted with the TrackballWorks software. Highly recommended if you wish to explore options outside of the mouse or touchpad interface

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Almost Perfect Purchased this for my new home computer, believing it to be the next generation of the Kensington Expert Mouse Trackball I use at the office. First, the good news: SlimBlade is true plug and play for Windows 7, no sw compatibility or driver issues, pinpoint accuracy, no response lag, use for hours at a time with no discomfort. Everything I hoped for, EXCEPT, now the bad news: it doesn't have a scroll ring like the Expert Mouse TB, and I can't find any other means of scroll control via the SlimBlade. The fact that scrolling can only be controlled via keyboard is a drag, and may eventually cause me to give up and buy another Expert Mouse TB for my home computer.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from If you know trackballs over mice you will like this I used the original Kensington trackball on my Fat Mac. I loved it. This new SlimBlade brought me back to that feeling. Thanks Kensington! Trackballs reduce the motion in the shoulder and wrist but increase the motion in the hand. Once your are used to it your arm and body relax, no mouse fatigue. Set it below the keyboard at waist level if you can. Learn to use the scroll and key combinations and you won't miss the wheel button on a mouse. Some tactical learning required but worth it for reducing body strain.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Hardware Needs Better Software I bought this product to replace a very old (but very reliable) Kensington Expert Pro Trackball. I am a graphic designer with a neurological condition that causes tremors in my hands, so I needed a large ball and buttons. I have no problems with the hardware here, but the software was sadly lacking in giving me the speed, acceleration, drag and right-click control I needed for my graphic apps. It was necessary to install additional software to control movements and I found USB Overdrive to be very helpful in this regard. But even with the third-party software, the entire package is still not quite as maneuverable as my old Expert Pro Trackball. Although Kensington really needs to provide better software for this item, the Slimblade does perform adequately and fits my handicap better than the Orbit Trackball my wife uses for her computer.
