      By any name, it's mightier than the mouse

Unlike a mouse, it sits in one p Originally called the Logitech Marble Mouse Trackball, the TrackMan Marble Trackball is the superior alternative to the mouse. Unlike a mouse, it sits in one place and your fingers use that big burgundy ball to move the pointer. Your thumb does the clicking and once you get accustomed to it, using a mouse will seen quaint and clunky. Long before the optical mouse rose to fame, Logitech was already employing optical technology in the TrackMan Marble and its siblings. Pop out the ball and you'll find a small rectangular window. Behind that window are an infrared LED and the sensor. Together, they track the movement of the marble's leopard spots. It might not be as sexy as the red glow of a conventional optical mouse but it gets the job done with more precision and comfort. The TrackMan Marble is even ambidextrous, allowing lefties to use it as easily as righties. Oh, and those two tiny buttons near the big buttons? Those take the place of the scroll wheel, allowing you to cruise up and down the screen.

      Great Mouse

      I use to use this mouse at my old job designing graphic arts, and custom signs in 2005, and I thought this mouse was amazing then. Now I final found another Log I use to use this mouse at my old job designing graphic arts, and custom signs in 2005, and I thought this mouse was amazing then. Now I final found another Logitech trackman at the apple store online, for everywhere else kept sending me a refund, because no one seems to have this mouse in stock. No more moving my arm around in circles like I am scary. By far this is the best mouse out there right now, and it is so difficult to get it online or in stores anywhere. I think it is being discontinue.

      Great when it decides to work

      I bought this mouse to help with arthritis and it has helped so far however there are some software issues: Pros 1. helps with arthritis 2. easy to clean I bought this mouse to help with arthritis and it has helped so far however there are some software issues: Pros 1. helps with arthritis 2. easy to clean Cons 1. it will randomly stop working. i will then plug it into a new USB port but then the scrolling won't work. 2. the scrolling is very jerky so i had to buy 3rd software call SmartScroll to make it work 3. i have to regularly reset my PRAM to get the mouse to work again. 4. sometimes opening the logitech system preferences will freeze your computer.

      Simple and Effective to Use

      As far as trackballs go, there are better models out there. I myself prefer both the Kensington Expert Mouse and the Logitech M570. However, the TrackMan Marble As far as trackballs go, there are better models out there. I myself prefer both the Kensington Expert Mouse and the Logitech M570. However, the TrackMan Marble has two things going for it: it's inexpensive (usually going for $29) and very, very simple to use. It fits both the right and left hand. It has a large trackball and four buttons total. The two larger buttons are your clicking and contextual clicking buttons, and the two smaller buttons function as up and down scrollers. That's it. While the buttons are programmable (mainly for swapping between right and left hand users), the simplicity is the key here. This trackball will function well for years to come. If you want a trackball with a bit more functionality, such as more programmable buttons, a scrolling ring, etc, look into the Kensington Expert Mouse. If you want something that's a bit more comfortable but catered to right hand users, consider the Logitech M570.

      When did buying a new mouse get so complicated?

      I want a new mouse. It's been awhile since I bought one. So this is the SECOND new mouse I've bought from the Apple Store that works only partially. This one I want a new mouse. It's been awhile since I bought one. So this is the SECOND new mouse I've bought from the Apple Store that works only partially. This one scrolls only when it feels like it. I can't side scroll with it - like in Launch Pad, I just sit there staring at page one and can't get any further. My old Kensington may be pretty arthritic but at least it does everything. I'm beginning to think if I want a new mouse I'll have to get 2 or 3 of them to do the job that one used to do. I'm super annoyed. And I threw out the packing for this cheap (yet overpriced) dog, so I can't even send it back - who'd have thought an old TRACKBALL mouse wouldn't work? It's in the trash now. I use Mavericks - maybe this mouse is just another thing that doesn't work on that OS.
