The Best Trackballs
Updated Dec 10, 2022
A trackball isn’t as accurate as a good-quality mouse, but it can be more precise than a trackpad for anyone looking to eliminate repetitive motion from mousing around too much. After spending more than 120 hours testing eight trackballs during weeks of work, we found that the best trackballs are the finger-operated Kensington Expert Mouse Wireless Trackball and the thumb-operated Logitech Ergo M575. We also have a budget pick—the Kensington Orbit Trackball Mouse with Scroll Ring—if you don’t mind sacrificing build quality and a couple of features for a more affordable trackball.
