Ah, the simplicities of the ball mouse. How I miss thee. While these worked, it had a tendency to get dirty and wasn't always very responsive. Next came optical mice, and while costing a little more than a ball mouse, it provided a vast improvement over the ball mouse.

Little too little, little too late. It's even trying very hard to look like the Razer Copperhead. It doesn't however, pull off all the things that the Razer does. In fact its specs sound like they've been taken directly from the specs for the Razer. Sounds like a cheap knockoff to me.
Razer Copperhead specs.

Not a fanboi for Razer, in fact like I said, most of what I do I use the Logitech MX1000 for. That's the superior mouse for most things IMHO. The Razer is good for gaming, period. For everything else it's not so good. I haven't tried to Copperhead yet, I'd like to and if I do and it's good I'll say so, if it sucks I'll say that too. Why? Because I don't get any free stuff from ANYONE so I'm not obliged to speak on anyone's behalf.

Well i certainly aint going to say this product is absolute rubbish if it was, i would say it in a nice way. But for sunbeam gear, it just works well ,doesn't break to easy (unless u want it to) and it works well!

Man, I can remember, back in the 80's, people who used trackballs and used to try to convert you like some kind of televangelists on a rant. They'd go on and on about how much better a trackball was... I thought all those people either died off or were eaten by some giant lizards or something. You've gotta be the last surviving trackball user Al. Nobody will EVER convince me to use one of those darned things. I remember a few arcade games that used them and I hated them too.
