Top 10 Trackball Mouse

From good to outstanding, this is my top 10 trackball mouse ranking

After using all popular trackball mice, I hereby proudly present the Top 10 Trackball Mouse ranking. Some trackballs are not mentioned in this list because they are not produced anymore, although they might be available via eBay and Amazon and I do have a review for each trackball, so visit the trackball review overview page for all trackball reviews.

I have a strong preference for finger-operated trackball (where you use your middle fingers to operate the ball, as opposed to thumb-operated trackballs, where you use your thumb to control the ball), which explains the high ranking of these kind of trackballs in this list. Some people do swear by thumb-operated trackballs. It is a personal preference, but if you don’t have trackball experience I would recommend the finger-operated trackballs since they give in my opinion a better control and accuracy.

Kensington Expert Mouse
Outstanding Editors Choice
Kensington Expert Mouse Top 10 Best Trackball
A winner on all accounts: large ball provides accuracy and comfort, ergonomic design, great scroll ring. Quite large and not as luxuriously made as the Kensington SlimBlade. Recommended for professionals or anyone who wants the best trackball available.
Update: now also available as a bluetooth wireless model

Kensington Orbit with Scroll Ring
Excellent Editors Choice Best Value
Kensington Orbit with Scroll Ring Top 10 Best Trackball
The Kensington Orbit with Scroll Ring is a fantastic trackball, definitely winner of the Best Value for money. It offers the best scrolling experience thanks to its super-smooth scroll ring. Great beginners’ trackball, but also suited for professional use.

Outstanding Editors Choice
CST2545-5W (GL) L-Trac Top 10 Best Trackball
The CST2545-5W (GL) L-Trac Glow Laser Trackball with blue glow ball (how cool is that!) is a high quality trackball. The scroll wheel is superb and the control and accuracy are excellent. This is one of my new favorite trackballs!

Kensington Slimblade
Outstanding Editors Choice
Kensington Slimblade Top 10 Best Trackball
The Ferrari of the Trackballs: stunningly beautiful, technologically superior, but expensive. Scrolling via ball not as ideal as a scroll ring but works well. Large ball for good accuracy and comfort, 4 large buttons. The only real competition is the Kensington Expert and CST2545.

Very Good Best Seller
Logitech M570 Wireless Trackball Top 10 Best Trackball
The currently Best Selling trackball of all is very good: comfortable for the hand, wireless with tiny USB receiver, many buttons and a scrollwheel. Nice and small, takes up little desk space.

Logitech MMX ERGO Wireless Trackball
Outstanding Editors Choice
Logitech MX ERGO Wireless Trackball Top 10 Best Trackball
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, state-of-the-art vertical tilt design that aims to relieve wrist pain. This is the ultimate thumb-operated trackball, if you’re willing to spend the cash!

Speedlink Aptico Wireless Trackball
Very Good
Speedlink Aptico Wireless Trackball Top 10 Best Trackball
The Speedlink Aptico Wireless Trackball is a very good thumb-operated wireless trackball, similar to the best selling trackball Logitech M570 but with a better build quality, DPI switch, and its secret weapon, the more versatile and solid scroll ‘4D’ scroll wheel. Also a bit more expensive. Only available in European countries, sold as the Sanwa Supply MA-WTB43BK in USA and Japan.

Logitech Cordless Optical TrackMan
Very Good
Logitech Cordless Optical TrackMan Top 10 Best Trackball
Most buttons of all trackballs (together with Elecom EX-G), good scrollwheel, very ergonomic, well built with nice materials. Used by the characters in tv series NCIS. The only downside is the large wireless receiver which is huge and sometimes loses the connection.
