Kensington Expert Mouse

Kensington Expert Mouse

Outstanding Editors Choice
The Kensington Expert is the trackball that I have used for many years. Yes, it’s one of my favorites, so expect nothing but praise! This is a winner, especially for professional users.

Kensington SlimBlade Trackball

Kensington SlimBlade Trackball

Outstanding Editors Choice
The Kensington SlimBlade could very well be called the Ferrari of the trackballs. Expensive, it looks utterly amazing and is full of cutting edge technology. I use it as my daily driver, and I love it, but it takes a daredevil to actually buy this as your first trackball.

Kensington Orbit mobile trackball

Kensington Orbit Wireless Mobile

Not Rated
If you are travelling and still want that trackball comfort, maybe the Kensington Orbit Wireless Mobile is a good choice. Wireless, small and it doesn’t move (like all trackballs actually) this is a great companion for people that often set up their laptop on a small Starbucks table.

Kensington Orbit Optical

OK
The Kensington Orbit Optical is another beginner’s trackball. Similar to the Logitech Marble (ambidextrous design, low price) but also different. Personally, I would go for the Logitech Marble, but if you’re looking for an affordable, simple, comfortable trackball to do basic computing (browsing internet, email, writing Word documents, etcetera) this could be your first trackball mouse.

Logitech Trackman Marble

Logitech TrackMan Marble

Very Good
This is the trackball that started it all for me. This the easy way to enter the wonderful world of the trackball. Very cheap, but also very good! If you don’t want to read all the trackball reviews on this website, just buy this one and send us a postcard of your honeymoon days with this sweet Marble trackball, you won’t regret it.

CST2545-5W (GL) L-Trac Glow Laser Trackball

Outstanding Editors Choice
The CST2545 is a high quality trackball, made in the USA by Clearly Superior Technologies. There are several CST2545 variations available, I’m testing the top of the range model, the CST2545-5W (GL) L-Trac Glow Laser Trackball with blue glow trackball (how cool is that!).

Adesso iMouse T1 Trackball

Adesso iMouse T1

Mediocre
The Adesso iMouse T1 is a very basic trackball mouse. One of the few trackballs that is not made by Kensington or Logitech, it’s not bad but we would opt for a Logitech Marble or Kensington Orbit with Scrollwheel if you’re looking for an affordable trackball.
Beware: this trackball is much bigger than you would expect. It has the shape of a normal mouse, but it’s almost twice as long!
