Product Description

Product Description

The Logitech TrackMan Wheel is designed to optimize user comfort on any computer. It features a sleek ergonomic design that goes easy on the hands even during long sessions. It utilizes Logitech's optical Marble technology to facilitate smooth and ultra-precise tracking, allowing you to reach more screen space with less movement. Using optical tracking, it is virtually maintenance free, requiring no cleaning.


Reliable optical technology combined with an innovative scroll wheel that acts as a third button sets Logitech's 904353-0403 Trackman Wheel Optical apart from ordinary trackball mice. Patented optical technology provides superior precision, reduced wear, and smooth motion, and eliminates the need for regular cleaning. The scroll wheel provides easy scrolling and the added convenience of an extra mouse button, enabling you to jump easily to your favorite Web sites. The ball is ideally positioned for thumb operation, and the comfortable shape of the mouse allows for strain-free extended use. Its smaller size also saves desk space, reduces hand and wrist movement, and plugs very easily into your system's USB or PS/2 port. Compatible with both Windows and Macintosh systems.

I have used a Logitech Trackman Marble (this product's predecessor) since it was released in 1995. I still use that original one at home. (When was the last time you used a computer product for nearly eighteen years?) I use it enough that I can feel the difference between the muscles on my right thumb verus my left. I love it so much I have gone so far as use my soldering iron to replace the worn-out button switches. (They happen to use the exact same switch as the ubiquitous MS mice.)

This device fits my hand like a glove, and saves desk space since it never needs to move. The lack of rollers isn't such a big plus since the advent of optical mice, but it is still nice.

While this is a stupendous product, you should never buy a pointing device or keyboard for the first time via mail-order. The only way you will know if it fits your hand is to go to a physical store and try it out. It may fit my hand like a glove, but it may not fit yours.

I have had this product for well over a year now. I am a heavy computer user and using a mouse was just putting a huge strain on my wrist, so I decided that maybe I should look into mouse alternatives.
Well, my first choice was the Kensington Orbit trackball, based on reviews on this site. All-in-all, it is a great product, but it has 1 tragic flaw which killed it for me - it gunks up incredibly quickly; I am talking on the order of every hour or two. I returned it to the store from whence it was purchased (hint: the one with a big yellow tag). Strike one.
My next choice was what is essentially a corded version of the Logitech Cordless Trackman FX Optical Trackball, which was probably simply called the same thing, minus the "Cordless". The up side - it has several buttons; this device did nothing about my wrist cramp problem, however. Strike two. (Side note: I don't really see the point of getting a cordless trackball or keyboard, unless you are just dying to have more battery-powered things.)
Choice number three: the Logitech Marble Mouse (which is a trackball, despite its name). I just plain could not get used to the feel of it and it did very little to ease strain anyhow. A lot of people on this site have good things to say about it. I, however, do not. Guess the third time is not always a charm.
Well, I finally ended up with (you guessed it) the Logitech Trackman Wheel Optical. While it takes some getting used to, once you get a feel for this, you will never even want to go near another mouse. It has two buttons and the scroll wheel which also doubles as a third button when pressed in, although I never find myself in need of this third "button" myself. This is probably the most ergonomic pointing device you can hope to get...that is, assuming you are right-handed.

This is my third Logitech trackball. The trackball it replaces is a Logitech Trackman that I bought in 1995. Nothing attached to my computer was anywhere close to that old.
I finally got tired of cleaning the ball on the old Trackman. My wife has both an Logitech marble trackball and a Logitech optical cordless mouse, and I wanted the best, too.
While each new Microsoft OS has had problems with the older version of Mouseware software, in my experience, Logitech is always the first to have updated drivers available shortly after release of new OS's.
After using the trackball for about 5 months, I'm still thrilled. Sure, the gunk from my oily, sticky, food-covered hands still builds up on the ball, but unlike mechanical mice and trackballs, it doesn't cause sticking and jumping of the cursor. The action was still smooth. I had not even noticed that it was getting harder to move the ball until I popped the ball out, and gave the contact points a quick cleaning.
So even with five months of built-up grime, it was still working just fine.
Now not everyone likes trackballs. I use a mouse at work, and it's probably better for me to be moving my whole arm. But at home my desk is too messy. There's no room to move a mouse, and even if I were able to, I'd hit my elbow on something else.
Not for one minute have I regretted buying this trackball.

Yeah it looks funny, but its what you call "ergonomic"- which has to do with making the workplace fit the worker. Perhaps the oddest looking thing is the little ball on the side. So what's that about? Well, its the whole reason you'd want to buy this device.

If you're satisfied with your regular mouse, it works well, and you have no hand, wrist, or elbow pain, don't be in a hurry to run out and get this mouse. However if you do have pain in any of those areas, I'd highly consider getting one of these little babies. Why? Well, because this is a "trackball" mouse, which means that you'll be moving that little arrow on your computer screen around- NOT by moving your hand and arm- but by simply rolling the ball with your thumb! So, as you can probably guess, little or no wrist and arm motion equals less stress on these areas--> and less pain!

Simply put, this device cuts down on how much you need to move your hand and arm around which can help you prevent or eliminate such nasty problems as tennis elbow or carpal tunnel. Yeah!

A few other good reasons to consider getting this mouse...

-you'll probably be able to work at a computer much longer and in more comfort because you won't be using your muscles as much

-you might find that its a bit quicker scrolling around web pages

Now it does have a cord, but that's about its only drawback (but it does work on glass).

So when all is said and done, if you're looking for more efficiency and less pain- get it. Also recommend Treat Your Own Hand and Thumb Osteoarthritis if you need some good hand exercises.
