      Great Mouse Alternative

      I really like using this trackball. Its a little different and takes some getting used to for some people. But its nice to not have to lift the trackball as you I really like using this trackball. Its a little different and takes some getting used to for some people. But its nice to not have to lift the trackball as you get to the edge of the mousepad. So its great for tight quarters. Also I'm pretty sure its easier on my wrist and its try comfortable too!

      Nice for heavy web users / Learning curve

      Would buy it again. I am on the computer all the time - web browsing and online software, spreadsheets, photoshop, etc. The down side of that is my hand and Would buy it again. I am on the computer all the time - web browsing and online software, spreadsheets, photoshop, etc. The down side of that is my hand and arm take a beating. I bought this Logitech Wireless M570 mouse because a friend had it and said it reduced the strain on his arm. If I put in a lot of hours I start to feel like I am getting carpal tunnel syndrome. Since staying off the computer is not much of an option for me (it would be the equivalent of a carpenter breaking his hand or a dancer breaking a leg), I made the switch. There is a learning curve to this mouse since you need to adjust to how it works. That adjustment happened in a day or few due to my heavy usage, with the first few hours being the most noticeable. Some people will not like the change, but I needed to do something or my arm would get worse. I think it's worth it and would make the same decision a year later to buy this mouse. My arm feels better for it. With all this said, don't expect a complete miracle, a mouse can only do so much if your arm hurts like mine did and the worse it gets the harder it will be to reserve.

      The Best Trackball Option

      As some other reviews have noted, Logitech does not have the best track record with support for Mac OS X. But fortunately, this trackball mouse works perfectly As some other reviews have noted, Logitech does not have the best track record with support for Mac OS X. But fortunately, this trackball mouse works perfectly out of the box. Clicking the scroll wheel fuctions properly as the third/middle button, while the smaller two buttons on the side work as back/forward functionality. I think this is the best trackball option for OS X. Thumb-controlled trackballs are not as common as finger-controlled ones, however, I find the former both more comfortable, and it allows for some additional functionality not found on, say, the TrackMan Marble, namely the scroll wheel. While other finger-controlled trackballs get around this by including a scroll ring, I do not find that as easy to use or as comfortable as the scroll wheel. This trackball mouse is for right handed people only. However, it's very comfortable and I've not gotten any fatigue gripping it for even hours at a time. It's not going to allow you to perform the many gestures of OS X, but it's still a fine product to use for everyday computing.

      bluetooth version option would be nice to try

      This is a mouse for all occasions -- whether working upside down, lying down, or where no surface for conventional mice is present. This mouse will perform. This is a mouse for all occasions -- whether working upside down, lying down, or where no surface for conventional mice is present. This mouse will perform. The thumb control allows for stress-free accuracy. Wonder how a blue-tooth version would perform? There are times when a spare usb port is not available for the tiny logitech receiver.

      By far my favorite mouse

      I love this trackball. I actually bought an extra just in case they stop making them, or this one breaks and I need a replacement right away. If you've neve I love this trackball. I actually bought an extra just in case they stop making them, or this one breaks and I need a replacement right away. If you've never used a trackball you really need to get used to it, but it's definitely worth it. Use it for a week or two and you'll be hooked. I do NOT recommend installing the Logitech software though. Try SteerMouse or USB Overdrive (haven't tested USB overdrive) instead. The logitech software is awful and buggy. The 3rd party software has been working very well.
