Don't I know it. This guy lasted me through everything, but it was not immune to puppy.

Now, I have... five different dead Logitech devices? Including two ~$100 keyboards.

Yeah, we don't buy Logitech anymore.

I can't imagine anyone making a fake while Logitech is still making them & selling them for only $27 on Amazon US, which is where the majority of the sales are.

The motivation for making a counterfeit would be either if Logitech stops making them i.e. this one which used to go for $60 but is selling for 10x that now that it's been discontinued, or if they were going to make super-cheap knock-offs that sells for $10.

I just want them to bring back these... They were the best trackball mice ever.

u/MainerZ · 4 pointsr/buildapc

They don't make em like this any more.

Any other trackball config doesn't feel right to me. Wish i'd kept mine, I had 2!

> trackball

Those can be good if they have proper ergonomics and are not the thumb controlled trash. Problem is getting any manufacturers to make ones gaming grade suitable these days. There are old Microsoft and Logitech trackballs that were more than good enough for fps gaming but got discontinued and now go for $400+ on Amazon.

Holy shit look at the price on this model!

Man, that reminds me of how much I am going to miss my Logitech Cordless Optical Trackman when it dies. $600 is too much for a trackball.

u/Aperture_Kubi · 3 pointsr/Trackballs

Elecom Deft is my go to after using the Logitech Optical Trackman.

I have just recently discovered trackballs, and I kind of want to get one, though I am not sure if I want a "thumb ball" or a "finger ball".. I'm afraid that I would develop carpal tunnel after a couple of weeks gaming with a thumb ball lol.
And also, I am not sure if I like the position of the forward and back buttons.. hmm

The dream would be to get one of these Logitech Cordless Optical Trackman but unfortunately, optical, used and crazy expensive? I think I will keep my normal mouse.. Not even sure if trackball will be good for me and my gaming

u/satanclauz · 1 pointr/shutupandtakemymoney

LOL! It wasn't nearly that much when we got it. That's just what happens when stuff is discontinued. e.g. this trackball input device i had to find for someone last year, it was only $100 then

u/ElevenSquared · 1 pointr/geek

I love the concept of it, but not actually using it. I bought this mouse, but can never use it for more than a few minutes before getting frustrated at how long it takes to click things.

u/chazwhiz · 1 pointr/mac

I like the Logitech thumballs a lot, but the best was the Optical Trackman which they discontinued unfortunately... They now go for ridiculous prices third party (I.e. If you can find one of those at a reasonable price, grab it. I'm not a fan of the "traditional" trackballs with the big central ball like the Kensington, but it's a personal preference. I'd suggest finding a store that still has physical demos, or at least buying from somewhere with a liberal return policy so you can really try it first.

u/Heli12345 · 1 pointr/buildapc

Not a lot of people seem to use/like them, but I would suggest a trackball. Some of the top companies that seem to come up quite often would be Kensington, CST, and Logitech. I personally use a Logitech as my main trackball (this one). That is no where near the original price I paid, and I have no idea when they spiked up like that, but it does seem like Logitech doesn't make that specific model anymore. I have used trackballs pretty much since I started using a computer, whether it be for gaming, photo editing, CAD software, or anything else out there. They just seem more responsive and accurate to me. Plus, they are so much more comfortable to use for long periods of time, and you need no where near the amount of desk space you would need for a normal mouse.
