Kensington SlimBlade Reviews

Sleek, well-built and comfy

This has been a great upgrade from my previous trackballs. It feels great to the touch and especially the twist ball to scroll feature. Looks great on the desk and looks strong. Even without the specialized software it worked right out of the box.

Nice Trackball, Unusable Software

I once absolutely loved my SlimBlade. Haven't been able to use it much since Big Sur. Seems to break on its own. Support was little help and I've noticed in various tech forums that I'm not the only one. Unlike the old TrackballWorks, KensingtonWorks really doesn't work. It sits parked on my desk until they fix their horrible software.

Ergonomic and efficient

We bought one, then two more. My wife and I have one each at home and one for work at office. I originally bought tracker balls to fend off carpal tunnel, so far so good after 27 years of working with computers.

Works great. Love the customization

Custom buttons are excellent. Had to get this to help take the pressure off my painful wrist. This trackball has literally extended my design career!

High quality, durable, Linux compatible

I have owned and used this product since 2011. I use it primarily for typical computer point and click stuff, web browsing, UI navigation, digital art, but not precision gaming. Linux compatible. It does require regular cleaning to ensure precise movements. Unfortunately, I lost the trackball during a move. Fortunately, I found a suitable replacement for the ball on a different website.

I was skeptical but this is a wrist saver

I was getting some carpal tunnel in my wrist from my regular mouse so I decided to try this trackball. I love it. I still use my mouse with my right hand and this with my left. I'm now ambidextrous now.

Experience reveals unseen details

I've reviewed the Slimblade before, and my review is still on this Website, voted Most Helpful Positive. The years of experience have revealed some weak points, however. Eventually, the switch under the most-used touchpad (most likely the lower right, commonly used for the right click function if not user-redefined) will go intermittent. This would be an easy fix if the trackball could be opened up (although Kensington probably doesn't want me to tell you this); microswitches can be replaced by anyone handy with a soldering pencil, and it may even be possible to put in a fix with a cleanup -- IF you can get at them. But a thorough examination of the Slimblade will reveal NO screws ANYWHERE...and Kensington was no help during calls for advice. With nothing left to lose, I found out that the screws are all hidden behind the stick-on nonslip pads on the base of the trackball. Once it was open, I found that a quick blast of canned air (B&H sells such products) was enough to get me right-clicking reliably again. Still, I like the Slimblade enough to buy a spare in case more problems come up -- and that's why B&H asked me for another review. Incidentally, Kensington has changed the color of the ball -- it's now a deeper shade of red that light just falls into. Very nice.

Professionals use trackballs, and if you use a trackball you should use the Slimblade!

question

Is this ball compatible with Windows 10?
Asked by: Donal A.
*IF* you installed Trackballworks in Windows 7 before upgrading to Windows 10, you will find it in your Apps in Windows 10 with all the settings preserved as you made them. You'll never notice a difference in your Slimblade operation.FOR THIS REASON, I do not know if you can install Trackballworks in Windows 10 without difficulty, nor do I know how the Slimblade will function without it. To find out I'd have to Uninstall software, do testing, then *hope* I could Reinstall the software. I expect Slimblade to function just like a two-button mouse (trackball) without Trackballworks in Windows 10, and you'll probably still be able to scroll by twisting the ball.
