P.S. The mainboard on the M570 also dies, as does the main chipset, these older wireless versions are the best!
First, the maximum effective range was tested to be 15 feet with direct line of sight and no other objects in the way. In the living room, this range was slightly shorter for unknown reasons other than the fact there might have been interference from my Microsoft cordless keyboard and mouse receiver. Even with the shorter range, I had a good 10-12 feet of range.
The Trackman module uses only 1 AA battery. I have been using a high capacity NiMH rechargeable which should last 3 months before it self-discharges. I also found that no drivers are needed unless you want to customize the button functions. I just plugged in the receiver in XP and Vista and was using the trackball with ease.
The trackball has been around for years but apparently it has not caught on. It's definitely not as intuitive as a mouse, but has its merits in limited spaces or if you don't have a table top surface. Its supposedly great for those suffering from repetitive motion disorders or carpal tunnel syndrome. I intended to use this for my media center PC and not for office applications, but it did take some getting used to especially in photo apps and even web browsing.
There's no back button or additional buttons besides the left and right buttons, and the scroll wheel button. There's no tilt wheel function, but this Trackman was also designed nearly a decade ago when such features weren't as prevalent. Another drawback is that it is designed for right handed users only. Southpaws will have to look elsewhere.
The Trackman and receiver are large in dimensions. They're not as sleek and sexy as the Bluetooth mice or cordless mice with micro transceivers, but it gets the job done. I can't seem to find many modern cordless trackball designs due to the low popularity of this type of device.
Pros: Great for limited spaces, optical technology doesn't require frequent cleaning, smooth ball rolling action, all of the buttons are very tactile.
Cons: RH users only, not as intuitive as mouse, no tilt wheel buttons, no back/forward buttons, large unit, and the receiver is very large. The range is acceptable.
Overall: 4/5 stars.
I solved the laptop issue:
* Buy some 3/4" - 1", light weight, adhesive backed(both sides) Velcro.
* Cut a section about 2 inches long - so it fits between the rubber feet of the receiver.
* Leave the Velcro stuck together: peel and firmly adhere the fuzzy side of the Velcro to the bottom of the receiver between the feet.
* Peel and gently adhere the other side of the Velcro to the top edge (when open) lid of your laptop, so the hole on the bottom of receiver faces you and is at least an inch clear of the top of the open lid - DO NOT apply hard, heavy, blunt forward or twisting pressure to your laptop lid - the screen may be damaged!
* CLOSE the laptop.
* Carefully remove the receiver separating the Velcro, now run your finger firmly over the Velcro on the laptop lid so its stuck on real well - DO NOT apply hard or heavy blunt downward pressure to your laptop lid - the screen may be damaged.
* Stick the receiver back on the laptop aligning the Velcro. DO NOT apply hard or heavy blunt downward pressure to your laptop lid - the screen may be damaged.
* Connect the receiver to your USB port, loop and tie excess cord; leave enough slack so there is no stress on the USB port or the receiver.
Ta Da! Works great and no more work to remove and store than a corded mouse.
You may want to find out if/where your wireless antenna is inside your laptop so you can stick the receiver as far away as possible on the lid. On my Dell 1520 I stuck the receiver on the top right corner.
While almost frustrating to learn at first -- until you get the thumb motion down, the cursor can be devilishly difficult to control -- within 1-2 weeks I was not only mousing with ease but had completely eliminated all arm/hand pain.
I recently set up my home office more ergonomically also, and decided to purchase the corded version of this mouse (Logitech Trackman Wheel Optical (Silver)). Not only is it a better color (the darker silver better hides smudges and wear) but it doesn't use wasteful batteries (approx 1 AA battery every 4 mos.)...and I don't have to worry about finding an out-of-the-way-but-still-effective place for the receiver. Since both the corded and the cordless take up a USB port, and since both mice remain stationary (you move the cursor with the thumb-ball, not the whole mouse), and since the cordless receiver is on a long wire anyway, I don't see any point in spending the extra money -- the initial higher price PLUS the cost/hassle of batteries -- to purchase this cordless version.
Had I known these things back when I first bought this mouse, I'd have chosen the corded version. But both are excellent mice, that can help you say goodbye to arm/wrist pain forever.
