Both programs allow for the use of multiple profiles for easy customization across different applications. Both the Marconi Marcus and the Kraft Tripletrack rate highly, but top marks go to the MG Track by MCS – it’s smooth and positive to use, and offers the plus of the locking third button. When your software relies on the use of a mouse and your mouse packs up you realise just how dependent your hi-tech setup is on cheap technology – the reliable alternative is a trackball. This was disconnected, although Marconi said that it could be a latched version of the left one. A good micro switch not only requires minimal movement, but has a positive feel and a distinct “click” when operated – MCS’ switches have all of these qualities. Last of all, I wish they would either tilt the mouse more, or create a mount for the mouse to allow it to be tilted up to about 45 degrees, which would be less stressful on the wrist.

The two switches are situated in the top corners of the unit and so are some 7″ apart. Apart from the trackball position, the biggest part of purchasing this was to navigate Photoshop, Premier video editing and Lightroom. The right and left buttons double for the standard left button, so suiting Tripletrack to both left and right-handed people.
ComiXology Thousands of Digital Comics. Fair enough, but I did get confused when working with software which requires you to press the left and right buttons in a particular order. The three buttons are positioned towards the bottom of the unit, so requiring a space to be left behind for the heel of-your hand. Two of these handle the vertical and horizontal movement of the mouse by rotating a slotted plastic disc in the path of an optical beam.
Please make sure that you are posting in the form of a question. That said, you don’t rest your whole hand’s weight on them in the same way that you do with a mouse. Secondly, the mouse cable may break just behind the cable strain relief – although this problem can be avoided if you treat your mouse carefully. Ergonomically great and space saving, but hell to use and even more hell to game with. So I was unable to set up any of the other function buttons as this requires the software.
When you’ve finished your edit, you press the left switch to disengage. Diagonal movements are carried out by a mixture of the above.

To an extent this latter problem can be improved by using a piece of software called a “mouse accelerator”.
It also has macus button-lock switch for selecting and holding down the main button and an auto-fire option for games use.

Would give 5 stars if games supported stock software. However, as the ball is very large you only need one careful roll to move from one side of the screen to the other.
Taking this trackball out of the box and attempting to move the ball is likely to fail dismally – that is, until you turn off the lock on the bottom of the unit which is intended to prevent damage in transit. Crap mzrcus your suffering from MS.
It can be used with the Atari ST and the Commodore Amiga and 64 by selecting the relevant switch position on the side of the unit. About nine feet out it gets tricky and Line of Sight is critical. Excellent for people with “larger” aka normal sized hands.
A couple of gentle rolls and you’re across the screen so there is no real problem. Two rolls and you’re across the screen and while “skating” is evident, it is not too obtrusive.
