Elecom DEFT Pro Trackball

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

Buy at amazon

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

This one is well-loved. Medium sized ball, only 2 buttons, medium priced, but best thing is the scroll ring.
