The scrollpoint is far superior to a scroll wheel.
Manzanilla Olives
The real button is much easier to click than a mouse wheel, making operations such as opening links in new tabs in firefox much more comfortable.
User
Once you use a Scrollpoint mouse you'll never want to use one with a wheel ever again.

The Scrollpoint mouse by IBM/Lenovo is easily the best engineered mouse I've ever had the pleasure to use. It ingeniously combines the mouse and pointing-stick, utilizing each of them in the area they're best suited for; the mouse for fine cursor control and the pointing-stick for quick and direct scrolling.

Previously I owned a Mighty Mouse by Apple, but grew frustrated with the scroll-ball getting clogged. It seemed pretty ridiculous to me that after eliminating balls from underneath a mouse, that I'd be subjected to the same problems when they were moved to the top. Scroll wheels are better, but can't handle side-to-side very well and for scrolling through a long document requires the user to lift their finger up again and again. A touch-stick on a mouse seemed like a great idea and I was pleasantly surprised that IBM actually made one.

The Scrollpoint has most of the typical features one would expect on a mouse. It's an optical, 3-button mouse, that plugs into a USB port (or PS/2 with included adapter). The pointing-stick on the current mouse (the one in the picture is a previous model) has a plastic bar rather than the traditional nub which works better for it's particular application. No matter how long a document is, you never need to lift your finger off the point-stick.

I've had my Scrollpoint for about 6 months so far and might even pick up another one to use at work. I highly recommend it. Priced at about $25, it's inexpensive enough for you to give it a try.

Once you use a Scrollpoint mouse you'll never want to use one with a wheel ever again. I have two IBM 2-Button Scrollpoint mice that I've been using for almost 10 years and other than occasionally cleaning the balls and contacts, they've worked flawlessly. I purchased two new 3-Button Scrollpoint mice to replace my old ones even though they are still working. The new mice have the added benefit of being optical (no more balls/contacts to clean) and are USB attached. The mice also come with USB to PS2 adapters so they can even be used on machines with PS2 ports. I've been using them for almost 2 months and they are very comfortable and I've had no issues with them. If they work as well as my old ones, I'll be extremely satisfied.

It is sensitive in linux, but not a major problem. I like it that way. The driver disk installs the mouse flawlessly in Windows XP SP3. This mouse is a joy to use in gaming, document reading, Internet browsing, every file manager I use (Midnight Commander, Rox, Free Commander, Windows Explorer) and every word processor I use (Abiword, Notepad++, notepad, Geany, Nicoedit). The click switch travel distance is just long enough. It fits my large (US glove size) hand perfectly. It is solid and sturdy, the 800 dpi resolution tracks flawlessly, and the intelligent design gives my heart a little thrill every time I look at it. I hate scroll wheels - arthritis. And a scroll wheel is a pain to click. It is wonderful to have that middle button as a separate entity for so many reasons - pasting in linux, alt-fire in first person shooters, the list goes on and on, much like this review. Okay! Thank you, IBM and Amazon, and my treasure, my wife Beth, for this mouse.

The scrollpoint is far superior to a scroll wheel. I've used nothing else for a long long time. Just a little pressure is so much better than having to move your finger.

This mouse fills a niche that doesn't exist! Even in the best of light, you have no control over the normal browsing speed that a wheel provides. To put it in Trek terms, you can use impulse speed (tiny middle button) or warp speed (ridiculous light switch knob). There are no cruising speeds with this mouse, no back button and no ergonomic benefits. Notably, a wheel mouse can also provide the same type of sliding scroll that this tiny middle button does and the scroll bar found on any document can provide far better navigation options than the light switch on this thing. I won't say that this mouse is a one star product because it can be marginally functional in a pinch. If you are a reader who enjoys soaking up every word on a page as though it were providing your very life's sustenance or like looking at the last line in a document or web page... then, yeah - this is for you.
