    Is there any trackball manufacturers out there that make a decent one.

    I've used Kensington over the years and they still have the same, "lame," problem. They insist on using "Booger glue," also called credit card glue to attached the rubber feet. within two weeks or less I find myself using super glue to reattach them. Also being so thin the trackball slides around.

    I have seen this question asked several times over the last couple years and there has never been a good, acceptable answer.

    Bing shows there are several out there, but those responding to that question all say they just aren't the same as those made years ago.

    That said, a trackball is a HID (human interface device), like a mouse or a keyboard, that is an extension to our hands. They are very personal devices. As such, what feels great in my hand may feel totally awkward, even painful in your hand. So you really do need to find a store that has them on display and go play touchy feely for yourself to see (feel) what fits your hand best.
