Anyone used one of these?Show Imagehttp://www.clearlysuperiortech.com/highperformance.htmlThe specs indicate it's sturdy, but I'm interested in how well the laser sensor tracks compared to a Logitech or Kensington optical sensor. I can't stand laser mice (the tracking feels "mushy"), but I am looking for a smooth+precise trackball for gaming.
what do the 1/8" jacks do?
Well I'm glad I stumbled on to this thread.
Well I'm glad I stumbled on to this thread. I have been using a CST2545W, which is like the one pictured here but with no external jacks. I use it for everything, internet, photoshop, gaming, etc. I've used every type of mouse from the MX Revolution to the G5. This trackball is very smooth compared to other trackballs. When playing games like Far Cry 2 and Battlefield Heros (I'm beta testing), this trackball makes aiming at moving targets easier. It has selectable Resolution between 400, 800, and 1600 just by holding the middle button and clicking the right button. I have my computer hooked up to my 37in HDTV @ 1080 Resolution and it only takes about 35 degree of movement to have the pointer move from one side of the screen to the other. If you are looking for the best trackball get this one. It is worth the money.http://www.clearlysuperiortech.com/index.htmlYamaha200
Hey thats great. I ordered the same one but with laser and should have it by Friday. Have you used the Kensington Expert? If so, how does it compare?And yes, welcome to geekhack!
In my opinion, the CST trackball is better. To me, it rolls and tracks with less effort and more precise then any other.Yamaha200
Oh man. I'm tempted to get one and I don't even LIKE trackballs. Actually I was going to get (for my wife) a USB CH DT225 but they sell OEM only (I tried) and over $200 at TrackballWorld isn't appealing. The CH DT225 I have is built like a tank but this one sounds smoother. I get approx 2 revolutions off of a flick of the finger. A bit more than the Kensington expert.Yamaha. Do you know how the innards work? I wonder if it's on rollers like a CH and if the laser is picking off it's signal off the actual ball or a wheel attached to the roller? Does the scroll thing grind like the Kensington or is it smooth?If you're comfortable popping one open and can take pics that would be appreciated (you can upload with "manage attachments" button).- Ripster
Did anyone order the opto-mechanical, or is everyone going for the purely optical?
The opto-mech are good but spend a little more and get the laser. Preference > priceYamaha200
FKSSR, it looks like a laser escaped your trackball and punctured something.What's with the blood on the keyboard? Sick, dude...
