    Logitec Trackball mouse


    Has anyone tried this or one like it? Do they give good precision compared to normal/ gaming mice? Reason i ask is i dont have proper computer desk, and wouldnt mind being able to use it regardless of surface.

    I'm using one of those at work, to try and prevent future carpal tunnel. It took a shitload of getting used to, but I'm slowly getting the hang of it. There's no way in hell I could ever game with it though.

    I've used this type before Logitech Cordless Optical Trackman at TigerDirect.com (it wasn't that actual one, just one like that). It was pretty convenient after I got used to it, though like Chris said, I could never game with it. It was cool because you could set it to un-brake the ball and then spin it all super fast to the bottom of a long folder or list and it would go veeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeer

    I was actually considering getting something like this for my next mouse. We had a trackball mouse at the recording studio at school, and I loved it....although I think I was a part of the 5 people who did

    Yea, I feel it coming. Maybe this isn't a bad idea after all.

    I had one, I dug it.

    I also used to spin it one way so fast the cursor would go the opposite direction.

    Used to use a trackball which you would operate with your middle two fingers and normal mice give me wrist problems. It does take a little getting used to but it's just as quick when you do. I now use something that looks like a joystick but you move it like a mouse, as it puts my arm in a more upright position.

    I prefer the larger trackballs like the Kensington Expert Mouse or SlimBlade

    I've used the smaller ones, but they just feel flimsy. With the bigger ones, you get a bit of "inertia assist" to keep the cursor moving. And they just feel more accurate to me.

    And i HATE those thumb-ball mice.
