My first computer was a 8088, I've used every kind of equipment that's been made since, when it comes to comfort, and ease of use there is no equal. This Microsoft Trackball Optical mouse is made with logic and common sense. (read more)

Microsoft Trackball Optical is simply the best mouse device on the market! The most comfortable and efficient mouse I've ever used! Trying to buy another one now, but seem to be rather scarce? Trackball tends to stick a little with age...5yrs+ but easily cleaned (read more)

Excellent when sitting on the sofa. Great for uncomfortable positions.
Highly recommended for who can't move their hand around because of lack of space or their position (Sofa, car, Bed, or elsewhere) I can't understand why this mouse is not produced anymore. (read more)

A more civilised way of moving around your display. I've used many different mice and trackballs, and I must say this one is the most comfortable to use. Its especially at its best when trying to use a laptop on anything other than a desk. I'm suprised that trackballs in general never really took off. Try one out, once you get the hang of not having to chase it around the desk you'll feel much less primitive.

I have 2 of these. I love the feel of them, the ease of use, and the navigation buttons are a big plus.
One of the best mouse on the market. I am going to purchase two new laptops soon and I will most likely be ordering another two of these for my new laptops.
I even ordered one for my niece when she got her first laptop.
They are the best. (read more)

I have had 2 of the Microsoft Trackball Optical PS2. I LOVE THEM and would pay just about anything to find another one. The last one that I had just broke yesterday. The optical eye broke. Does anyone know if the optical eye can be replaced? I would buy SEVERAL of these mice if MICROSOFT would bring them back! Please Microsoft listen to the people... WE WANT THIS MOUSE BACK! I have also tried a couple of Logitech mice as a possible replacement... but they don't even come close! If anyone... (read more)

The Microsoft Trackball Optical PS2 has 5 buttons.It's decently sized for comfortable rest. No aches from prolonged use like conventional mice. My dad bought me the Microsoft Trackball Optical PS2 mouse when I was still at home some years ago, and when my brother used it, he stole it from me and my dad wouldn't have us arguing over it so said he'd buy me a new one, however, it wasn't a Microsoft Trackball Optical.
I recently moved away from home and to uni, and wanted to buy one of these... (read more)

My husband loves this mouse, and I love it too, at first I thought it was odd but now I can't use a regular mouse as it is so ergonomically correct. We've had ours for 7 years now, and I'm looking for another qw it's still going strong. But I really really wish they still made them. (read more)

I have not found another track ball like this on the market. The Microsoft trackball optical PS2 is the best in their history. If Microsoft would make this track ball again I would purchase one as my actual track ball has become old. (read more)

When I clean the ball and the socket of the Microsoft Trackball Optical PS2/USB mouse, it seems to work sometimes (a little better), but not for long.
In despair, I put a little Vaseline or baby oil on my hands, rub it in well (also on the ball), put the ball back into the socket, and everything works like a charm. (read more)

The first Microsoft Trackball Optical PS2/USB I bought was rough as a cob! See my earlier review. I figured since I'd found a way to fix the roughness I'd buy another for my desktop. The new one came in today and the ball action is smooth as silk! Guess the lesson here is -- if she's rough take 'er back! Or send her back if you bought her online but what a pain! My ratings apply to this second one I bought. (read more)

Microsoft Trackball Optical PS2/USB: I really love the extra buttons and like a another reviewer wish Logitech made a trackball with this many buttons. I tried to work around the rough ball action by using a rubber thumb tip. I like a trackball for playing video games, but even with the rubber thumb tip the action was so rough I had trouble. I had hoped the roughness would go away with use but that didn't seem to be happening. I bought this trackball for a brand new laptop and this thing... (read more)

I bought one of these Microsoft Trackball Optical PS2/USB Computer Mouses because a friend had lent me his for a while and I found it really comfortable and natural. Mice were giving me weirds aches and pains in my hands and I was looking for an alternative.
It's a very comfortable trackball. The trackball itself is operated using the thumb of your right hand (it's not suitable for left handed use) and there are two main mouse-like buttons and a scroll-wheel very much like you would... (read more)

The microsoft optical trackball mouse is designed ergonomically really well, I have never used a mouse more comfortable than this before. Being a trackball as well means I can fill my desk with other useless things like cups of coffee and half eaten sandwiches without having to leave room for a mouse to move around. (read more)
