Nice little Trackball, but

The Precision button is in a bad location for my hands while gaming. I'm getting really tired of the precision dropping to 300dpi after clicking the mouse wheel, as I'm inadvertently hitting the Precision button when using the mouse wheel. Change that button location and it would be perfect.

Best trackball I have ever used

This trackball can stand on it’s own with the smoothness of the ball.


I love this trackball! It's very, very smooth, and the sensitivity settings are a great fit for my workflow. I mostly use it for web design, but it's making its way into my gaming.
I'm using it on Windows 11 and Manjaro Linux, and it works great on both. Plug and play on both OSes.

Great trackball but light

I've been using the Gameball Thumb for a couple of weeks now, I like the design, but it feels light. I know with a lot of gaming mice, light is the key, but this unit is stationary, it needs to feel more grounded. The base plate mechanism could also feel sturdier, as the whole unit shakes when you tap on it. I'd actually also like to see optional software to control the amount the sensitivity changes instead of set preset amounts. Other than those details, I love how fast it tracks, it's comfortable and works on pretty much any platform, which is nice.

Great mouse

Love this trackball. I used to have one back when counter strike 1.5 was a thing and this mouse reminds me of the one I used to have. Ball rolls smooth, it's comfortable, wireless battery life is great, great position of buttons, and subtle RGB. I haven't found anything wrong with it so far.
