The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

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.
