    Orbit Optical Trackball (USB and PS/2) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 38.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beats a mouse every time I've got four of these things. They sit in one spot and take up no desk space. Forefinger moves the ball, thumb and middle finger do the clicks. I can't imagine why anyone uses the desk hogging mouse. This particular product has a free ball, so be cautious while moving it from place to place as you might with a lap top. Comfortable fit for the hand. On one, the pointer will take a jump from time to time. On another, I had to replace the left click switch with one rescued from an old mouse. So it appears as if the durability is in question. On the other hand, I'd buy a fifth if I had another computer.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product if it fits your hand I purchased this to replace an aging trackball. Initially I was not sure about the ergonomics because the buttons felt too close to the marble. After a week I seem to have adjusted to it. The base is a little light but doesn't move around on you and the buttons require a bit more pressure than I'm used to. I've never used anything but trackballs in twenty years, beginning with two early Kensingtons that had multiple differently color-coded and weighted billiard balls! They were the best I my opinion which is why I buy Kensington. All in all, I think this is excellent value for the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Coolest mouse ever Been using this mouse for years ever since it first came out and it' amazing. I have one for my desktop at home my laptop and my work computer. I don't get why more people don't use em. It's fast smooth and eliminates having to keep dragging around your desk struggling b to move the cursor. Not to mention u technically don't even need a desk to use it. Absolutely great product for professionals who I sit in front of computers for long hours or everyday users who just want a more efficient mouse.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from LOVE THIS TRACKBALL!!! I use my trackball with my Gateway laptop. It gets too hot to keep on my lap, and I often work long hours on it as I work from home. I also like to be able to sit back and not have to sit over it, and the trackball, along with an external keyboard allow me that freedom.I love the way it works so perfectly everytime, and keeps the strain and pain from my wrist that I experience using a mouse and even the glide pad on my laptop.I do dislike the way the ball falls out and rolls away when it slips off onto the floor occasionally. I took the part of the blister packaging that covers the top during shipping, cut the dome out of it, and cut away the part that covers the buttons, and taped that over the trackball, and now it can fall and the ball stays inside where it belongs. Hopefully this will be a good tip for other users to solve that problem.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ball Falls Out Although the trackball functions as it should there is no retention for the ball. If you happen to knock the unit over the ball falls out. This replaced an older trackball which did have ball rentention. It's not an issue if the unit will be kept on a desk but ours is used for a home theater PC and is used on the arm of a chair. Evry time it gets knocked off the ball falls out and we have to retreive it. PITA

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Handicapped?Other Options May Be Better My wife uses the Orbit Optical Trackball on her computer, but I also need to use it from time to time to access company financial reports. I am a handicapped graphic designer and use a Kensington Slimblade Trackball on my other (main) computer. Although my wife has no problems using the Orbit, it is difficult for me to operate with my hand tremors. The tracking is very fast (almost too fast) even at the slowest settings using the software included. So, handicapped persons may want to consider the Kensington Slimblade instead, with third-party software from USB Overdrive. The Orbit is affordable, has a nice look, and would probably work well for most users. But it also has a cheap feel to it, compared to the other Kensington Trackballs I have used.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value for the money I've been using trackballs for years and when my old Kensington Orbit died I replaced it with the optical version. It's comfortable, no more cleaning junk and dust off rollers, and it looks cool too.
