Customer Reviews

Its smooth easy to use and very accurate.
eec
This one fits my hand very well and using my fingers and the ball to scroll around is much better than having to move my whole wrist, arm and shoulder.
Marcia Hutchinson
And no need in picking up the mouse to move your cursor around just roll the ball around very easy.

Originally called the Logitech Marble Mouse Trackball, the TrackMan Marble Trackball is the superior alternative to the mouse. Unlike a mouse, it sits in one place and your fingers use that big burgundy ball to move the pointer. Your thumb does the clicking and once you get accustomed to it, using a mouse will seem quaint and clunky.

Long before the optical mouse rose to fame, Logitech was already employing optical technology in the TrackMan Marble and its siblings. Pop out the ball and you'll find a small rectangular window. Behind that window are an infrared LED and the sensor. Together, they track the movement of the marble's leopard spots. It might not be as sexy as the bright red glow of a conventional non-laser optical mouse but it gets the job done with more precision and comfort. The TrackMan Marble is even ambidextrous, allowing lefties to use it as easily as righties.

If you're wondering about scrolling without a wheel, it all depends on the operating system. With the Logitech Control Center software installed on a Mac, the mini-buttons scroll up and down. With Windows running Logitech SetPoint, configure the mini button nearest your thumb for Autoscroll. This turns the ball into a variable-speed scroll control that's as easy to master as a wheel.

I used to use the trackballs with "Cue Balls" and wheels. When my last one gave out (I bought a bunch on sale) my mate bought this one. I was sceptical because of the small ball. I do engineering work and I need precise movements. I used this for a few hours before I decided I'd never go back. Plus the optical technology is a lot easier to clean than the rubber wheels of the old style trackballs. And the price is very right.

I am a software developer and spend 8 hours a day or more hammering away at the computer. Years ago, I had a really bad tendonitis/carpal tunnel problem caused by a standard mouse. It got so bad that I couldn't even tie my shoes with the help of that hand. I tried 5 different mice and even tried switching mouse hands. Nothing worked until I found this. I have been using it for over 7 years now on my left hand (I am right handed) and gone through two of them, and my wrist feels great.

Some ergonomics expert made a comment on this site stating the contrary. From first hand experience I can tell you he is dead wrong. I also have coworkers who switched over to this mouse because they started experiencing pain and have been happily using it for years.

You will naturally end up using the mouse like this: wrist and arm for large motions. Finger tips for fine movements. Your thumb naturally clicks the button in a strong position. Draging is a little bit difficult so I advise you learn how to highlight using keyboard shortcuts, like the shift key. Its a small price to pay to get relief from the pain.

I never had to have wrist surgery either. By the way, I also switched to microsoft natural keyboard and use a keyboard tray. All of these things are important for taking care of your wrists.

Still, when I go back to a regular mouse my wrist starts to ache in only half an hour. The marble mouse rocks and I hope they continue to make it until I retire.

By the way, the thumb trackballs are terrible. I don't recommend them. Moving you thumb side to side seems to irritate the joint in no time.

Verified Purchase
I'm sure that life without my Logitech trackball mouse would be possible, but it would probably be, as Hobbes memorably said, nasty, brutish and short, and it's not something I want to experience. I'm typing this review after buying an additional mouse to use with my laptop after months of struggling to write a book on it using a more conventional optical mouse. (My desktop already had a trackball.) The difference between before (frustratingly clunky manoeuvering, aching arm and shoulder, mistakes due to imprecise mouse usage) and after (blissfully seamless/effortless usage) is marvellous. (Oh yes, and no need for one of those mouse pads to make it work -- I can even plop this down on the sofa beside me if I'm working on my laptop.) My productivity has zoomed.

This is easy to install and just as simple to use as the standard mouse. It takes a few days to become accustomed to the fact that you don't have to shove a mouse around, but it has all the functions that you would expect and once you are used to using it, you will wonder how you lived without it. I know I do. It's also very, very long-lived. My desktop mouse has been in use for six years now, and the only reason I had to order an extra was after I knocked it to the ground and failed to locate the marble-style ball (it surfaced three months later, having rolled behind a bookcase and into a corner.) The ease with which the trackball can be knocked out of the mouse is probably the only significant design flaw I've found, so would advise keeping the mouse in a place where such accidents won't occur (I hung on to the extra marble, once retrieved, to make sure that I'm never stuck again). But overall this strikes me as one of those rare technology products that does exactly what it's supposed to do, over and over again, and never malfunctions.

Recommended to anyone & everyone. You will be saving yourself from an ergonomic nightmare.
