Trackballs have always been niche products, and in today's world of motion and touch-based input devices, might seem like throwbacks to another era. But if you find you just can't beat a trackball's ergonomics, there are still a few good ones to choose from, and the Logitech Wireless Trackball M570 is one of them. It's lightweight, includes well-placed buttons and a scroll wheel, and cradles your palm comfortably as you use your thumb to operate the ball — if you're a righty, that is. The 570 is strictly a right-handed model, though Logitech still sells its Trackman Marble, an ambidextrous, fingertip-controlled trackball.

Picking the M570 then is a judgment call. It's a success for some, but we and no doubt some experienced trackball users feel Logitech could have done better.

This is one of those things that you wonder about but I have to say if you do any type of video editing where you need to make fine adjustments, this is for you. The advertised 18 month battery life (using a single AA) sounds very appealing but I haven't tested this myself. Note to OS X users:...

I've used Logitech's trackball mice for over a decade. I have 4 of their old ones called the Logitech T-RA18. These are superior mice that only GOD knows why they discontinued it! I have now bought the M570 for a lot of money but I'm so disappointed I could cry. The T-RA18 was of a good quality...
