The touch-scroll ring is not very sensitive and I often wind up using the ball to scroll.
Fat Cat
Very nice to not have to move around a mouse on a leather surface, just what I needed and the computer is located across the room.
DRDMYS
The shape and size of the mouse doesn't fit my hand. and the buttons and ball seem to be awkwardly placed.

For years I used the Logitech Trackman Marble. But I got tired of replacing it once a year when, like clockwork, it always began to crash my Mac after 12 months of use.

I decided to try the Kensington Wireless for a change. The shape isn't quite as ergonomic as the Logitech, but it's not bad. In the first hours of use though, the deal-breaker seemed like it would be the touch-pad strips for scrolling. They are terrible.

However, I downloaded the free Kensington TrackballWorks from Kensington's site. This adds additional options for customizing the button layout. I set mine so "chording" the left and right buttons (clicking both at once) turns the ball into a scroll wheel. It works great that way. It's very quick and easy to transition from scrolling to a regular left or right click and back again.

Yesterday I used it to scroll through a very long transcript, highlight occasional paragraphs, and drag them to a second document to create a condensed version of the transcript. I found the Kensington to be very functional, almost transparent. I was flying through the work.

I recommend this product. But I highly recommend downloading TrackballWorks and setting it so chording lets you use the ball for scrolling.

I would like to share a few observations with potential future owners of this trackball.

- This trackball is a good bit smaller than I initially expected. Granted I was coming from a Kensington Expert Mouse, which is quite large, but this trackball was no larger than an average mouse. Obviously whether this is good or bad depends on individual taste.

- This trackball is light. Again, a matter of personal preference, but I prefer the base to be a little bit heavier to keep it from sliding around my desk. Also, durability is a concern with its lightweight as well. Time will tell.

- The scroll "thing". I'm all for trying something new, but this thing is touchy. Again, coming from the Expert Mouse I may be a little spoiled on the scroll ring, but given the size difference something similar would have been difficult to implement.

-- It only has two mouse buttons. I didn't think they made mouses/trackballs without forward and back buttons anymore. A little thing, sure, but since most time on computers is usually spent browsing the web, it is a bit of an annoyance. I would have rather had a more basic scroll wheel and the extra buttons. but I knew what I was getting when I ordered it.

- Tiny trackball. Again a product of the smaller design and power considerations - it is battery operated after all - it reduces precision compared to a larger ball. This is possibly my single biggest complaint, and again the matter of preference, larger trackballs make it easier to make precise movements as well as quick movements across the desktop thanks to their greater mass and inertia.

And finally, I would like to mention my disappointment in its compatibility with 64-bit operating systems.

First, you either are a trackball person or you're not. I think people fall into 2 camps here, they either love trackballs or they hate 'em. I have been using trackballs for about 15 years or longer, specifically kensington trackballs. I use the full size trackball (not the slimblade model, the previous one) for work at my desk but I wanted something like a trackball for portable work. Specifically, when I need the precision of a trackball for design or architecture work when not at my desk.

One of my criteria was that the trackball device be wireless and fairly small. There are other kensington products that are great but they are slightly larger and not wireless. There is an orbit in this category. I was tempted but really don't want a larger, corded device to stick in my bag.

I tested the logitech m570 first, it was pretty good. But I could not get used to the logitech's ball being on the side and having to use my thumb to move it. I have used my fingers too long moving trackballs around I guess, I could not get the precision i needed using my thumb. It was fine for general surfing but when I need to manipulate an architecture document with multiple layers, hundreds of elements, no dice.

Pros:
Good center, top ball placement. That's where it needs to be on a trackball.
The device is just the right size for portable use, it works well in a confined, small space.
You can program clicking both buttons together (i use it for a command+click on OSX).
Seems like good construction, simple, elegant design.
Good software, easy to configure. Uses the same software as my other kensington input devices.

Cons:
I dislike the buttons on the side, but am getting used to it. I would prefer them on the top.

ADDED: After some time with this product, I like it a lot. I got used to the button placement fairly readily. The scroll wheel is awful, but other than that, I'm very pleased to have been able to replace my wired trackball with a wireless one.

Basic Info/Setup:

* I'm using this with a Macbook Pro, running OSX 10.7 (Lion.)
* I use a Magic Trackpad at my desktop for most of my primary work.
* I'm a longtime trackball user (never use a conventional mouse.)
* Still need a trackball because some work - specifically mapping with Google maps - is very unfriendly to the Apple trackpad (zooming, clicking, none work the way I'd expect.)
* I won't be using the device portably.
* I've been using the cheap - and extremely reliable - Logitech Trackman marble.
* I'm left-handed, so I need an "agnostic" trackball.
* I've owned this new Kensington device for a couple of days. My impressions my change, and I'll update if they do.

I was really excited to see this product, since my desk is cluttered with wires, and I've been trying to do something about that. I'd like it if the device were Bluetooth, so it didn't require a dongle, but that's a bit trivial. The size of the dongle is a double-edged sword. I like how tiny it is (it literally extends just a quarter inch from your USB port) but I'd be afraid of losing it if I were traveling.

The product's name, Wireless Orbit Mouse, is somewhat telling. Many trackball users describe such products as "upside-down mice," and this is really the case here. While most trackballs are much bigger - the ball on my Logitech is about thirty percent larger in diameter, and the standard, massive Kensington trackballs are even larger, this one is comparatively small.
