Great to see that Logitech still believes in trackballs! Logitech is back with this brand new and unique Logitech MX Ergo trackball: an ergonomic combination of Trackball Mouse and a Vertical Mouse. At $99 (or €109) it is not cheap, but it features wireless (Bluetooth!) connection, 8 button functions, state-of-the-art vertical tilt design that aims to relieve wrist pain, and 8 buttons. This is the ultimate thumb-operated trackball!
A very slick and versatile thumb-operated trackball from Japanese brand Elecom. It has a lot of buttons, 4D scrollwheel and DPI switch. I’m currently using this latest Elecom trackball and will let you know how good it is. Some users recommend to switch the Elecom ball for the blue Logitech M570 ball for more accuracy, I will test this as well. Stay tuned for the full review!
The Logitech M570 Wireless trackball is sexy, smooth and smart. The M570 features a wireless connection, thumb-operated scrollwheel and 5 buttons including Back/Forward. The design might be a bit small for large hands, but overall, this is a very good trackball and currently the best selling trackball.
The Logitech Cordless Optical Trackman is a strange beast, a one-eyed beetle from outer space that could scurry away from your desk any moment. Once you realise that it is just patiently waiting for your orders, you put your palm on the extra smooth surface (it’s really nice and soft) and discover that this serious trackball means business.
The Speedlink Aptico SL-630001-BK is a very good thumb-operated wireless trackball: similar to the best selling trackball Logitech M570 (which can be seen as one of its direct competitors) but with a better build quality, easily accessible DPI selection button, and its secret weapon, the more versatile and solid scroll ‘4D’ scroll wheel.
The Japanese Sanwa Supply Wireless Trackball Pro MA-WTB40R is not the most pretty device in the lineup of trackballs, but not a bad choice for someone who wants a large and wireless trackball. Available in Red or Black.
