Best overall in big ball class.

The ball spins better than all other big ball trackballs.

Kensington Slimblade Trackball

Kensington Slimblade trackball 78432

Best design. 4 buttons. Huge ball.

To scroll, twist the ball (like rotating earth).

Elecom DEFT Pro

This one is considered the best by some.

No software required for standard buttons and wheel. But the buttons fn1 fn2 fn3 need their driver, and only their driver.

Has DPI switch.

Kensington Orbit Trackball with Scroll Ring

Kensington Orbit + Ring

For a basic, 2 buttons, trackball, this one is best.

This one is well-loved. Medium sized ball, only 2 buttons, low price, and its scroll ring is best among ALL trackballs.
