trackball vs mouse

after 2 years with trackball, i finally decided, mouse is actually more precise and faster. I really wanted to like trackball.

trackball is nice if you don't require precision, and you want ease of use. It's really easy just to roll it. But as soon as you need to aim at tiny x or buttons, mouse is more precise.

the 2 trackballs am using are:

of the two, the M570 is better, because it has scroll wheel.

also, on the question of thumb trackball vs index finger trackball, I find myself preferring thumb trackball.

the other issue with trackball is that you need to clean it every 3 weeks. Else, the ball becomes sluggish to roll.
