You know sometimes it pays to get the thing that has no reviews.
I bought this at Micro Center about a week ago, simply because I had tried all the other highly rated trackballs with none satisfying me.
This trackball is actually very comfortable to use. I like that it has the scroll wheel on the side, so I can use my thumb to scroll while my fingers roll the ball and click the buttons. There is no drag when using it. It rolls fine and smoothly, and the mouse on the screen reflects that perfectly.
But what I liked the most about this particular trackball is that THERE WAS NO INSTALLATION CD!! That's right, no funky software programs to configure, no special mouse button mappers, and no other-worldly drivers to install. It's just a straight up, plug and play trackball.
My only gripe with it is that the scroll wheel is a tad bit stiff when it comes to pressing it as a button, but it's not that bad now that I'm used to it.
Bought this based on price (lower than comparable Kensington Orbit) and its stated reliability and ease of cleaning. Also purchased a Kensington Orbit for comparison and to select one or the other after some limited, personal trials. Decided on the Adesso myself, as described below, with the technique of use being different and the smooth ball of the Adesso a big factor. See below for details, and Bottom Line opinion comparing these two options.
Like any Trackball, speaking as one having been accustomed to 8-10 hours per workday using a traditional mouse based on movement across a surface, there was a breaking-in period. During that time, I had to commit to which fingers to use for what activity, and how to get the most out of it while minimizing wrist strain.
While I was trying to find a technique that worked for me, I happened to read that one Trackball manufacturer had recommended using the middle digits to move the Trackball, in a position where the hand...
I have read a numbers of negative reviews here on the Adesso T1, and can only assume that those folks are trying to use this mouse like a 'regular' mouse. This ain't no 'regular' mouse, so many reviewers are missing the point. Here are some highlights:
~ Large roller ball is the smoothest I have used. It has weight to it, so it's easier to control. ~ The weight of the roller ball makes it easy to 'zing' the cursor across the screen with one quick movement. Graphics artists and CAD operators are sure to love this feature! ~ The scroll wheel/3rd button is on the left side under the thumb. Easy, easy to use. Scrolling control is great and is set up so as not to be accidentally moved. ~ There is a nice, long USB cord. ~ No setup, just plug and play! ~ In a separate review, it was pointed out that a wrist rest is best used with this mouse, as you really should not be resting the palm of your hand on the mouse's back. I use a "SmartGlove". It...
