That cleaning ritual sounds familiar for the MM's scroll ball. I just rub it vigorously with a damp cloth about once a month, or when scrolling starts to get flakey.plinkoman said:OMG, I could not stand those. I would always have to pop the ball out every week to clean it out or they wouldn't work quite right. 4 years ago I had enough, I bought an optical mouse and never looked back.
I think Logitech still make trackballs.Rokem said:on an old comp i have a stationary mouse and you move the ball with your thumb, but it runs over a serrial cable , anybody know of a usb mouse like that?
It's not even that much. We are probably talking a matter of cents more to make an optical mouse. I didn't know anyone made ball mice brand new anymore.Cassie said:Well, of course. Dell isn't going to spend an extra $4 just so thier customer can have an optical mouse.
