Default Scrollwheel or Trackball?

Please Login to Remove!

Ok, for all of you users upgrading from the 8700 to the 8300 (like me), I am interested in seeing the response to the Trackball.

I personally like it. I really didn't expect to, but it is nice. Makes editing text so much easier. My only problem with the Trackball is that BrickBreaker is more difficult now!

Thoughts?

I agree. I love the trackball also. Your right, Brickbreaker is a bit harder but I am working on it.

Trackball, no question! (my only complaint is that it turns dark with use)

Agree, the trackball is a vast improvement over the scroll wheel, although I would like to see an improvement in the sleeve surrounding it to keep debris out of it better.
