4With a little help it is a GREAT solution for carpal tunnel and wrist pain
By Mlalahoi
It's a good option for people with carpal tunnel such as myself and looking for a more ergonomic option. If it had a better angle out-of-the-box I'd give it 5 stars, however with a little propping it can be perfect, see below. Tips:

1. To make it 10x more ergonomic, place a wedge with a 30 degree incline under it to make it the most natural wrist angle and keep you from resting any weight on the nerves in your wrist. Experiment with different angles to find the best for you personally. I trimmed a chunk of stiff foam from some laptop packaging material, see the attached photos. This has been a HUGE benefit for my wrists and in combination with other ergonomic tweaks to my setup and regular stretching and soft tissue work has left me pain-free for some time now.

2. You'll need to clean the dust and lint from the rollers and optical sensor under the ball once a week, it takes seconds but will keep the trackball nice and responsive.

5Great product that can be made even greater with an angled stand
By Rustin L. Haase
I've been a trackball user since the days before MP3s. This is my current favorite model. Affordable, reliable, cordless, and nicely shaped. I was using it so much that my arm started hurting until I realized I was using it at the wrong angle. I do 3d printing and designed a stand to make it even better and more ergonomic. I would highly recommend this product especially with a padded rest and angled stand like the one I made. You can find my stand at Thingiverse. [...] and make it yourself if you have a 3d printer. With or without the stand, this trackball is a great value.

5One of the best ever
By Okfoz
Out of the 4 that I have owned only one has stopped working. This is my 5th M570. I work in a very dusty environment and these trackballs take quite a bit of abuse. I read where people have problems with the little balls inside the socket. I have not had this issue. the little balls on all of the trackballs up to this point appear to be made from ceramic, which has held up very well for me. The only problems I have had is the little balls seem to collect lint, as does the pocket for the optical sensor. About once a month I have to pop the ball out and clean it.

I have owned almost all of the different trackballs made by logitech over the years, ever since 1992, I have owned the trackman II, Trackman Marble, Marble Wheel, Marble Wheel optical and now the M570. I have easily put on hundreds of miles and since the Marble they have all been excellent performers.
