Great deal. I just ordered at $53 but this one is obviously incredible deal. I just ordered another one here.

Love this trackball. The cheapest I have seen it was $55. I just ordered a new one so I can have one at work as well as at home.

I've got three of these mice at home + their "upgraded" version that's more futuristic looking. Under no circumstances should you ever get their newer model... the 'old' expert trackball mouse was perfection. I'm tempted to get another one just keep as a backup at this price...

Have had this for a few years now. Great trackball, almost as good as my Trackball Explorer. Great price if you are needing a new one!

EDIT: Best Buy will not. It's a daily/hourly special. You could try price matching in store and they may not notice.

+1 exactly what he said.

This is the lowest price I have ever seen on it.

also, this model and the technology behind this trackball hasnt changed in 8-10 years (or more). So either their company motto is 'if it works dont fix it' or 'lets never invest in new research and technology.' Take your pick.

Bought to replace my chickenfoot Kensington, pads were getting gummy anyway.

My Orbit trackball's left button is flaking out, alternating between not registering clicks and massive bounce. I could just replace the button, assuming it's a standard item easily found, as I like the simple and curvy design. But I'm thinking of just getting a new trackball entirely, for the extra buttons and hopefully a track ring with more resistance than the Orbit's, and this seems like it might fit the bill.

How does this model compare to the rest of their trackball line? Does the ring offer decent resistance, or does it just float? I used to use their old squarish off-white trackball that was popular 20 years ago, with 4 buttons but no ring. I liked it a lot, and it's still working, but the cable connector is flaky and keeps crashing the trackball SW, forcing a complete reboot. I suppose that I can replace that as well, but sometimes you just want something new.

The absolute best mouse I have ever owned between trackball, traditional, and ergonomic. The only caveat is that the third 'middle' button on a traditional mouse is the upper left button on this mouse, which is difficult to hold while using the ball. Have two of these (one for home, one for work), and very tempted to buy as another backup...

Pretty sure it's 15 years or more. I'm almost certain I've had one since the very early 2000s.

Edit: Looks like it came out in August 2003, so I was off by some but not much.

I've been using these as long as I can remember. I'm using one right now. The scroll wheel "clicks", so it does provide some resistance. Mine are a bit scratchy (if that makes any sense) and maybe a little imprecise but it doesn't impede operation, and it may be because my two are as old as the hills.

It's by far my favorite mouse replacement ever, although the design is substantially different from almost all trackballs on the market, primarily in that you're not using your thumb for the trackball. That's what I love about it, but not everybody feels the same.

Thanks. Yeah, I don't like the thumb ones either. Nothing against them, just not for me, and I'm just used to the center ball setup. Been using one or another for decades and zero RSI issues. My one complaint about the Orbit, other than the left button flaking out, is the floating ring. It needs some resistance, be it continuous or clicky. Plus from my past experience with the Expert the 2 extra buttons are useful.
