I use ms trackball optical v1.0, I wonder what that one is like. my ball is more to the left and i use my thumb not my fingers. easier to target that way?

My Logitech Trackman, is like that. I've had both but I have to say I prefer using my thumb. I find it easier to use.

I would say the one Amplifrier is talking about is a 4 button. Looks like it has the tilt wheel to, so I guess it's actually 6? My Logitech is only 3. I have my scroll wheel programed as a back button when pushed so I really don't miss the extra buttons.

I dont know how id game if i could only have 2 buttons. Mine has 4 buttons(1 small one next to each big button) plus the up/down scroll plus you can push the scroll down, so I have a total of 7 buttons on mouse

and i find it easier to precisely target in games using my index and middle fingers.......i cant target with my thumb for sheet.
