SlimBlade Wired Media Trackball
Comfort and productivity are at your fingertips with the Kensington SlimBlade Trackball. The slim, low-profile, ambidextrous design provides all-day comfort while the advanced dual laser sensors and large ball deliver exceptional precision. For even greater productivity, the four programmable buttons can be set to the functions or keyboard shortcuts you use most with our TrackballWorks software.
Sleek, comfortable ambidextrous design
The slim, low-profile shape works equally well for either right-handed or left-handed users while taking up less desk space than needed to operate a mouse. Provides more comfort during extended use through reduced arm and wrist movement.
Large ball and patented 3D Scrolling Technology
Dual lasers provide highly accurate and responsive X and Y axis scrolling, plus the large ball makes it easy to precisely navigate anywhere on the screen. Spin the ball to smoothly scroll pages up and down. There’s no need to move your fingers away from the ball, which reduces hand and wrist movement.
Plug & play operation
Get clicking and scrolling quickly with fast, reliable and intuitive installation through the wired USB connection.
TrackballWorks 2.0 Software
Provides an even more personalized experience, giving you the ability to assign a wide variety of program functions to each of your buttons as well as control the pointer speed and scrolling.
Compatible with both PC and Mac computers.

To fix, you have to apply a few drops of grease to the ceramic bearings. It's not enough to lubricate from the outside; it's the bearing's holes that need lubrication. Just make sure whatever grease you use is safe for plastics. I used silicone grease.
If you're in a bind, a gross but usable solution is oil from your forehead. I don't know if forehead grease is safe for plastics, but it's effective.
Dust is by far the biggest problem with this trackball. If you get dust in the bearings, you've got to remove the ball and wipe your finger along the bearings until the dust comes off, then re-lubricate. I'm using mine > 8 hours a day in a low-moderately dusty environment, and I'm cleaning the trackball 2 to 3 times a day. Annoying.
You've got 6 buttons total: 4 real buttons, and 2 virtual buttons (top buttons pressed together make a virtual button, bottom two buttons make the second one). You can reassign them to: another mouse button, a keypress, any combination of keypresses and mouse buttons, media keys, app short cuts. Pretty versatile.
To scroll you spin the trackball like a top, which is unwieldy at first but you get the hang of it after a while. There's a bit of a learning curve to scrolling the page without moving the cursor. The scroll direction, speed, inertia, and acceleration are all changeable in software.
There are quiet clicking noises coming from inside the trackball when you scroll. You can't disable it, which is fine by me since I like the clicking.
The pointer speed and acceleration are adjustable in software.Read more ›
4 stars and not 5 just because it's pretty expensive - i think they could make this available a bit cheaper but it's a specialty item and that usually means more mark-up.
I used the 'inertial scroll' and 'pointer acceleration' features in the software which seem to give you a good trade-off between speed/accuracy.

Ever since I first tried a trackball, I was hooked. Great for graphic design or music programs (protools) Love the twist to scroll of the trackball. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Joshua Evans
