Ol' Faithful.

Strengths:

Reliable, very comfortable to use. Excellent battery life. Excellent wireless range.

Weaknesses:

Obviously only for the right-handed.

Additional Comments:

Highly recommended for anyone who experiences wrist pain. This thing makes an excellent "couch mouse," for those who have a PC connected to their living room TV. I've been using these for almost a decade now, and they've been excellent.

Few other options available.

Strengths:

Fine and rapid control once you are used to it. Takes up almost no room when in use. Fits an adult males hand far better than most mice Long battery life

Weaknesses:

Cheap/Weak button construction means it wears out fast. This is horrible for pretty much any use; press button and you can get double clicks, no clicks, or or clicking/releasing repeatedly. If you have any dust or oils on your hands you will be constantly cleaning the optical sensor, silicone/plastic tips that the ball uses to "float" on, and the ball occasionally, to limit the jerky movements from it not detecting ball movements. Wireless with no real indicator of the battery charge means after it is in use for a while you cannot be sure if it is a mouse issue, cleaning issue, or battery issue.

Additional Comments:

It is REALLY good when it is working at 100% but it is inconsistent and wears out fast, meaning you do not know if it will be flawless, average, or BAD, and sometimes that changes every 30 seconds.. Over Priced for the quality and lack of consistent performance.

Extremely helpful for laptops and general mobility

Strengths:

- Battery lasts for months - Good for if you're on the move and don't have room to move full mouse around - Comfortable to use, although it can take some getting used to - Great range, often hooked up my laptop to my tv and used it from the couch - Great for gaming, except maybe shooters - Easy to clean

Weaknesses:

- Mouse button can wear out with continuous use - after just over a year of use, my scroll wheel started having issues recognizing scrolling and middle clicking - Requires frequent cleaning, I find myself cleaning mine out at least once a week, but I also use it all the time - Can take some getting used to

Additional Comments:

An excellent mouse for on the go travel where you often might not have room to move a normal mouse around. As someone who takes their laptop between classes and lectures, it has served my purposes incredibly well. It's also incredible at reducing wrist strain. However, if you're not concerned about wrist strain (a relatively uncommon problem) or you're not on the move a lot, then you'll likely be better off with a traditional mouse. 5/5 because this is an incredible product for my needs

Great mouse, but buttons wear out quickly (ME IPR FTW)

Strengths:

A great alternative to traditional mice, it's comfortable and easy to use, as well as portable. The battery lasts for months, due to low power use and automatic shutoff when the mouse is not in use. There is a slot for the usb dongle inside the battery hatch, great for transporting the mouse. There's a well placed on-off switch on the bottom of the mouse, with practice, I can flip the mouse and work the switch with the thumb on one hand. The two extra buttons are back and forward by default.

Weaknesses:

The buttons tend to wear out with regular use, resulting in double clicking on single clicks, and click-and-drag problems. I have replaced this mouse 3 times so far with Memory Express's In house Product Replacement. Also, using one thumb does not give as much fine motor control as all the fingers you can put on a regular mouse. But this mouse is great for an alternative control, if you're worried about carpal tunnel on your wrist.

Additional Comments:

If you buy this mouse, I greatly recommend an IPR plan.

Wicked Mouse

Strengths:

* Once you use this mouse, it's pretty hard to use anything else once you master it. * great feel and look * battery life is very long compared to other mice. * Convenient Up-and-Down buttons right beside your index finger *Easy to clean/replace batteries *durable scroll wheel

Weaknesses:

* Too Pricey for what it is. *Trackball sensors gunk up from excessive use (dust, dirt, debris) and need to be frequently cleaned for best performance * Overtime the left click button starts to wear away, and simple tasks like 'Clicking and Dragging' become difficult, and require you to press harder and harder to avoid the mouse releasing mid drag.

Additional Comments:

Overall this is a great mouse, I don't use anything else. If the price was cheaper or the mechanical quality were better it would be a 5 star without a doubt.

Great mouse!

Strengths:

I've been using this for about a year now and I'm very happy with it. Take the time to adjust the up direction in the software, it's way easier than learning "up". I've dropped this thing so many times I've lost count. It still works. Easy to clean, just pop out the ball and knock whatever is in the hole out. Cat hair can get into the works but it's an easy fix.

Weaknesses:

I wish it had a few more buttons. I got the extra two programmed to "hide" and "unhide all" in Sketchup. Great for long trips, I even do CAD work in the truck when we travel. If it had more buttons and a lower price I'd give it a fifth star.

Additional Comments:

I would buy again. Actually I'll probably buy one now just so I have one if they change the design. Old dog, new tricks and all that.

Some Good, Some Bad

Strengths:

Wireless for the old Trackman Wheel fans Good wireless signal range when there's no obstructions Works great on a fresh battery

Weaknesses:

Poor wireless signal range with any kind of obstruction Likes to rapid double click when battery go below 50% No protection for the optical pickup, can get blocked easily and is difficult to clean quickly when it gets blocked, this is a BAD thing when playing online games where you cannot pause them.

Additional Comments:

Been using trackman wheels for 12 years now, was nice to finally get wireless with the old thumb ball design. Recommend cleaning it regularly before debris falls into the opening for the optical pickup, especially if you play games like Diablo III in hardcore mode like I do.

Nice Mice!

Strengths:

This thing is great, I really like it. I had trouble getting a signal to it when I moved the receiver to the back of the PC instead and I was between it and the receiver. But it's all good now, I just moved the receiver to the top case USB port. It's perfect for web page navigation.

Weaknesses:

Really expensive, signal can have trouble going thru lots of people and equipment. Not for gaming, you don't have the control you normally have with your arm and wrist.

Additional Comments:

For work or surfing the web this is perfect. Not a good first person shooter mouse. Costs a lot but if you are on a computer all day your arm and wrist will thank you. If this cost less I would have given it a five. Way less expensive than physiotherapy.

THe best way to not get a sore hand

Strengths:

Long battery life. mine has been working for over 9 months on the supplied battery you don't have to move your arm, it stops my arm and hand from getting fatigued and sore. it's great if you have arthritis or joint pains

Weaknesses:

it only comes as a cordless device. the ball does clog up fairly quickly if you have any oil on your hand. but it pops rite out for easy cleaning.

Additional Comments:

after years of using mice to play first person shooters but my wrist starts to hurt after thirty minutes of play, a friend had the trackman, after trying it I fell in love with it, now I can play for hours with no discomfort at all!

Trackballs: The few

Strengths:

- Wireless up to 10 meters.
- Strong software available for further mouse customization.
- Solid scroll wheel and clicks.
- Smaller, seemingly more durable than its predecessor the Logitech Trackman Wheel.
- An additional two button (5 in total) over the previously mentioned Trackman.
-Superb battery life.
-Unifying receiver that works with the M570 and other Logitech devices.
-Not your typical mouse

Weaknesses:

-Small ball ejection hole, giving some difficulty in removing it for cleaning.
-May require some wearing in before trackball will move seamlessly.
-Very tiny very fragile USB receiver.
-Requires light upkeep for keeping the trackball clear of debris.

Additional Comments:

Reliable device with limited drawbacks. With limited choices in trackball technology the M570 becomes the new standard and certainly houses the improvements to do so. Consumers familiar with trackball technology will enjoy this while newer ones will want to take time to adjust.
