I purchased this product because when I bought my new computer my old refused to work. I tried everything to get it to work, but it refused to operate properly. So I proceeded to go and look at different places for a new one. The only one that I had to go by was one from Logitech. It had always worked well in the past. But I guess it was time for a new one.
So I started out at Best buy and found one for forty dollars. That was a good buy, but I waited in line and we got nowhere, the line did not move. So I proceeded to go to another store. We went to Circuit City and found one for $32.00 including tax.
This one was a little bit smaller than the one that I was used to, but I did not like the one that came with the new computer. The one that I found was by KENSINGTON, Orbit Trackball. This one comes with a Five Year warranty. It was very simple to install. All you had to do is shut your computer down and unplug you old mouse. Then plug your new trackball in. As long as your Pc has Windows 95 or 98 it will automatically recognize your new track ball.
It started working right away. No problems with it. I like the fact that you donít have to take anything apart to clean it. All you have to do to pull the ball out is push a lever on the bottom and the ball will pop out. Then you just use a damp cloth and wipe the points off.
This has an easy fingertip control and two customized buttons. The shape of this one lets your hand hug it very comfortably. This also dramatically reduces the amount of desk space that you have to use. There is almost no movement by your hand, all done by finger control. There is a lot less hand and wrist movement, this will save you pain in the long run.
You can download Kensington Mouse works Software free to add more options for the trackball. There are a lot of extra features such as an acceleration and brilliant cursor. You can use the drag feature to make it easier. There is also a snap to default to reduce hand movement. Also a menu lock, plus a double click feature to reduce extra clicking. You can use the pop up menus and the rest reminder is always a plus.
If you have any problems with this unit all you have to do is call 1-800-535-4242 to get service. Just give a full description of the problem.
Well, I have not used it very long but it seems to be working beautifully. You canít complain about the price, for thirty dollars you canít go wrong. It has an attractive blue ball that you can almost see through. There is more than enough cord to stretch for your needs. I would recommend this to any PC user that does not have a lot of money to spend those expensive ones. I would say that this works as well as those expensive ones. There is no need to spend a lot of extra money on one if this one will do the trick.
