    I've always preferred a trackball to a mouse, (I always know where the trackball is, my mouse, not so much) but the utility of the scroll wheel had me using a mouse. The scroll ring makes this trackball complete. I was worried that I would find the scroll motion awkward, but I instantly became used to using the ring to scroll.

    Old Kensington user; Very satisfied.

    • Written by from Oswego

    I used to use a Kensington Turbo Trackball at the office and always liked it a lot. Picked this up today at my local Apple Store (based on price and basic functions) and got more than I thought. It's got a very small footprint (unlike the old ones) and the ergonomic extension is actually very comfortable. The overall functions and actions on this trackball are excellent. Glad I made this choice!

    Very poor quality

    • Written by from Kingsport

    While this product does the job, it has very cheap construction and feel like a plastic toy. I have previously bought Kensington products and was surprised and disappointed with this product. My recommendation is to keep looking.

    I Like It

    • Written by from Memphis

    I've had this trackball for quite sometime and I like it very much... The only thing I don't like about it is that the ball is starting to get some stiffness in it...

    trackball with scroll ring

    • Written by from Richland

    I use this at work, best trackball I have ever used. The scroll ring is adjustable for speed and is field sensitive with the driver supplied. When you mouse over any item or field with a scroll bar it, scrolls only that, so you can move around quickly and scroll those areas without clicking. The extended wrist wrest is awkward, but not that noticeable once you get it placed right.

    I have three Orbit Trackballs and would buy one again. I use two in my home office (one for my Mac Mini and one for my MacBook Pro) and I carry one with me on the road. Like all track balls, they have to be cleaned occasionally, but I have not had any problems with them. The most convenient feature for me is the scroll wheel. I do combine the Orbit Trackball with a mouse pad that has a wrist rest which helps with the carpal problem.

    Not well made ... doesn't last.

    • Written by from Santa Rosa

    I prefer a trackball to a mouse and liked the small footprint and price of this model but after a year of use the left button has to be pressed quite hard to facilitate a click and click-dragging is quite the chore. Also the scroll wheel has lost its smoothness. This is my second bad experience with a Kensington product. No more Kensington for me.

    Bought this for carpal tunnel syndrome

    • Written by from Santa Monica

    Scroll ring so cheap it almost does not work. Nothing like an Apple product, I do not think they could have made it cheaper. Very light weight, a problem, and the scroll ring feels like there is sand inside the mechanism. And always a delay. Ugly. Very disappointed. I bought this because I am worried about carpal tunnel syndrome, and read that it is good to change from a mouse to a track ball every few days. Now I will try the track pad.
    I remember that Kensington was once a good product, maybe ten years ago.
