Well, well. I have a Microsoft Trackball Explorer 1.0 that is now wearing out. The bearings have flattened out and though it still works I decided to get another. It turns out! They are Discontinued! And for sale at an astronomical price!! I did an extensive search on the web, and this product is high priced and in limited supply. I am disappointed in MICROSOFT!! There are loyal trackball consumers who would like to have this product for purchase- and available at a decent price!

Since I have had several of these through the years (I go back to the original Kensington trackball on my first computer in the 80's!) I simply won't go back to a traditional mouse. What I will say, if you are willing to buy this product at any price, is you will not go wrong or be disappointed. It is ergonomic and fits my hand well. I like the placement of the left click and right click buttons. You can access these with your thumb or your fingers since they are in both places. The trackball is responsive and moves the mouse curser well on the screen. I don't even think about using it anymore- the setup is in memory and second nature.

Now I need to learn a new product since I can't seem to afford this one. It looks like the reviews for the Logitech trackballs are quite good. I just have to decide whether to have the ball placement be at the thumb or at the fingertip as it is with the Microsoft Trackball Explorer.

Perhaps we should all band together and email Microsoft to nudge them into manufacturing the trackball explorers again.

I have two of these. Microsoft discontinued this model, but why I have no idea?!?! This was simply the best design for long term pain relief for my carple tunnel. Why in the world did Microsoft discontinue it??? If you see one, buy it. It saved me alot of pain.

These are all cool things that ended with NO good reason. I had two of these. The first broke from some abuse on my part. I'm still using the 2nd. Some people don't like working with trackballs but I find this design very comfortable. The only issue I have is that my current trackball explorer works intermittently with my HP Pavilion tx1115nr notebook. New drivers don't help. The mouse works with my desktop with no issues whatsoever and I use it for FPS games (Crysis and BF2 usually).

Microsoft forget the Zune...bring back the Trackball Explorers...or someone else use this design. :)

Great mouse; easy to use; easy installation; does not irritate my scroll finger or wrist.

I bought one of these when they first came out for $70 for my wife. Then I got to go to a conference at Microsoft Head quarters and was allowed to spend $100 of my money in their employee store. Of the many things I was able to purchase was another MS Optiplex Explorer Trackball. My wife used hers so much the paint came off of it. I took care of mine and have wanted to have another just in case mine ever broke. When my wife didn't like looking at the faded paint she wanted a new trackball. I got her another one and have saved hers. So I have my spare but I wanted one for work and I still can't find them save for the $500 USED!! If people are buying them for that much can't MS maybe once a year make a small batch and sell to the public. If you have read this you can see my complaint really is a testament to how wonderfully these are. I wouldn't buy one for $500 bucks just because it is a matter of principle. I am also NOT THAT desperate YET!! I would buy another one if they where reasonably priced.
