I currently have a Trackball Marble by Logitech and while I like it better than the original, it starts to get uncomfortable after editing for an hour or so. Any recommendations on a different kind that you have experience with?

Logitech M570 Wireless Trackball Laser
Your hand rest on top of it, very comfortable when used for long periods of time.

I used to have a Logitech TrackMan but never could get comfortable with the trackball.

Switched up to the Performance Mouse MX and Keyboard combo. Ergonomics have been much better for me. Only complaint would be the scroll function is so touchy it creeps at times. Haven't figured out to adjust the scroll wheel sensitivity.

I actually have that one and while I like it for my everyday work, I don't particularly care to use it when editing. I like the trackball.

+1 for magic mouse. I can't work with track balls, make my hand hurt for some reason. And I don't like trackpad only, I like to move the cursor with my arm, not my finger. Also use a wacom tablet, which also comes with a mouse, though I hardly ever use that one.

+2 for Magic Mouse. I have a Wacon, and their included mouse, but I much prefer the Magic Mouse when I'm not using the tablet.

Logitech m310 for general use and a Wacom Intuos4 for photo editing. The pad works so much better than any mouse.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

Am I wrong to assume the magic Apple works only with apple? Is it usb? I have thought about the pad but not sure how I would like it.

I don't know if it work on PC, it was sold with my iMac.
It is not wired, it's by Bluetooth ;)

Logitech makes one as well that many people like better than the Apple one. Not too sure if it's usb or Bluetooth though. Likely usb.

I use a pretty basic Logitech keyboard and mouse for general work. The mouse is a basic two button and scroll wheel. I also have a cheap Trust pen tablet. I use that for actual drawing tasks, although I tend to stick with the mouse most of the time in LR if I am simply adjusting sliders. Always use it with the local brushes though. It's nice though that you can use either device interchangeably. So if working with the LR brush tool I can be working with the pen, then simply roll the wheel on the mouse to change the brush size. The only thing not to do is move the mouse at the same time as using the pen on the track pad. Oh and although the kbd/mouse are wireless they and the track pad are both USB devices.

I currently use an Apple Magic Mouse for my Mac mini but am thinking about picking up the Magic Trackpad too.
