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.

Universal acceptance

Compatible with both PC and Mac computers.

Out of the box, the trackball squeaks and doesn't "glide" properly.
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.

Excellent trackball mouse. Nice heavy feel on the trackball itself, which I like. I had a tech problem with the first one I got but I contacted support and they sent me a new one with no questions asked. The second one has performed perfectly. It's expensive, but if you're working in Finale, Sibelius or any other music notation software, this is a must. I'm sure there are other programs such as CAD software for which you might need something like this

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.

So far so good. I am using this with a macbook pro. It is replacing a trackball that is not ambidextrous; I like that this one is. It is a bit big but it is not too large. The ball slides nicely and the software from Kensington is great for customizing the buttons. The click sound is a bit loud for my taste but I like the audible scroll sound; which is good because I am not sure you can turn it off. Build quality is nice and the three year warranty makes me think this will last nicely. It was this or a desk top trackpad but the apple one is 169$.

Switched from a Trackman Marble (10+ years) to this - took a little bit getting used to, but after about 2 weeks it feels much nicer and wouldn't switch back. The scrolling works very well, again took some tweaking of the software to get reasonable responses. But now its so intuitive and easy to scroll, am very glad to have gotten this (compared to something with a secondary scroll wheel).

I used the 'inertial scroll' and 'pointer acceleration' features in the software which seem to give you a good trade-off between speed/accuracy.

Pretty darned good - switched to this from the Expert Mouse trackball that was hurting my wrist. It's fast, smooth, the driver works great - my only complaint, and it seems silly because I'll probably get accustomed to it, is that the button clicks are loud and hollow-sounding compared to the expert mouse. It's be an unreserved five stars without that annoyance.PS - I didn't know how I'd like the scroll ring, compared to the Expert Mouse but it's fantastic; a bit of a fingerprint magnet, but totally exceeded my expectations.

I just got my trackball and I have been testing it for the past 2 hours. I had Orbit Optical before and this feels like a good upgrade. Very comfortable for hand. I like the option that allows you to change buttons as my left and right click are now configured diagonally. I feel that the weight of the ball is about 25% higher than it should be comparing to previous smaller ball. Previous one seemed easier to handle. It's compatible with Linux too so a big plus there.

If you are familiar with the Kensington Expert Trackballs, then you should feel at home with SlimBlade. Same footprint, and the size of the ball is the same. Add to that the fact that through the Kensington software Trackballworks the trackball can be configured exactly to your liking, whether your operating system is from Apple or Microsoft. In the end, choosing between the Expert and the Slimblade will depend on the form factor you prefer.

Got this to replace an older Kensington trackball that had served me for 5+ years. Main difference is that the older model had a scroll wheel. This model replaces the wheel with the rotation of the ball itself. It is counter intuitive at first but when you get used to it it works much better than the wheel did.
