  • By any name, it's mightier than the mouse

    Originally called the Logitech Marble Mouse Trackball, the TrackMan Marble Trackball is the superior alternative to the mouse. Un 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 seen 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 red glow of a conventional 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. Oh, and those two tiny buttons near the big buttons? Those take the place of the scroll wheel, allowing you to cruise up and down the screen.

I use to use this mouse at my old job designing graphic arts, and custom signs in 2005, and I thought this mouse was amazing then. Now I final found another Logitech trackman at the apple store online, for everywhere else kept sending me a refund, because no one seems to have this mouse in stock. No more moving my arm around in circles like I am scary. By far this is the best mouse out there right now, and it is so difficult to get it online or in stores anywhere. I think it is being discontinue.

But this marble trackball has been SO easy - just lift up the ball and clear out the accumulated crud (especially if it acts wonky). Usually the problem is a wad of crud easily lifted out, takes a lot to affect them. I've used them for many years, always keep a stock in case a usually feline-related incident is the last straw. It survives frequent dangling down from the desk with trackball rolling somewhere else on floor for a long time before dying, though. Hope they always offer it and always upgrade drivers as needed. They last a lot longer than my poor keyboards. Self-stick velcro can help protect against busy paws for trackballs or keyboards (or anything) in a fixed position.

T I refuse to push a "rock" around my desk to get a cursor to move. I have used this exact style trackball for about 12 years now. The only time I had to replace one was when I just wore out the left button... and that was after YEARS of use.

    If it stops moving your cursor as expected... Remove the red ball and clean the 3 sensors of your dirty hand gunk that you have allowed to build up. You'll probably need to do this once a month. It takes all of 2 seconds. That's what that hole in the bottom was designed for, to let the gunk fall out.

    If you are freaking out about software, controls for page scrolling, etc. Stop. I have never had a USB based device that had to have software to run this. Maybe an old XP based PC, but never a problem with any Mac.

    If you want to get more control (say a two button click, then scroll) instead of finding the scrollbar and scrolling (as some have mentioned) just search for a piece of software called "keyremap4macbook." It will allow you to adjust everything the way you want. Open it up, and type in scroll. It will get you to what you are looking for.

    This is the BEST trackball EVER. You just need to take care of it. Clean it and search for the software you need.

  • The best precision device for the Visio addict

    5.0 out of 5 stars

    I have arthritic hands and almost every other pointing device is painful for me to us. My daily work often includes hours of deve I have arthritic hands and almost every other pointing device is painful for me to us. My daily work often includes hours of developing precise diagrams of many kinds in Visio. The Logitech TrackMan Marble Trackball allows me to quickly, precisely, and painlessly develop the most intricate details. I have one at work, one at home, and one in my knapsack. As this device won't work with an iPad, my laptop still comes with me any place where I need to do more than note taking. This is a long-lasting and wonderful product. (I just wish Logitech would develop a Bluetooth version so it would also work with an iPad.)
