Good to know. I have long thought this could be what I want. Perhaps
finally buy one.
you will not regret it when you do.
i have the "trackman marble", m/n t-ch11, p/n 804122-3000. no scroll wheel.
it has been replaced with "trackman wheel", t-bb18;
there is also a 'cordless' model, t-ra18;
i have had the t-bb18 for over 25 years. in that time, i have had numerous
friends and several clients try it. they have bought them, both corded and
cordless. all are happy.
a couple friends bought the microsoft 'imitation'. no go. they returned them
and bought the logitech. ;)
do note that the 'thumb marble' does collect dust/crud, just like a
standard mouse marble. this can be cleaned by removing 'marble' and
cleaning the three small bearing point with a small firm bristle brush.
so, have you tried a different mouse yet?
