Kensington Professional Trackball & Pro Fit Gesture Mouse Review
Peter Donnell / 3 years ago
It seems we can’t go a whole week here at eTeknix without reviewing some revolutionary, feature packed, gaming focused peripherals, but there’s a whole other world of hardware out there for the professional market, and that’s exactly what we’ll be taking a look at today. Kensington is well-known for their desktop and mobile solutions, and today we’ll be taking a look at the latest Kensington Expert Mouse, as well as the Kensington Pro Fit mouse.
The Pro Fit is a budget friendly solution, but while it looks like a standard desktop mouse, it comes with a little trick. Instead of the usual side navigation buttons, you’ll find a gesture button, allowing a unique control set, despite its less complex design. The Expert Mouse, on the other hand, is a trackball, something a lot of you likely don’t use, but when it come to music, video and image editing software suites, the trackball is still king for many users and we’re eager to see how it performs today.

“With the latest Windows OS, users have a huge array of options when it comes to getting the most out of their device, combining touchscreen and keyboard like no other. The Pro Fit® Wired Windows® Gesture Mouse features a multi-function gesture button that lets you perform up to six specific actions with your thumb that typically are accomplished with a touchscreen finger swipe. The mouse has a high-definition 1800 DPI sensor that optically tracks your hand movements for precision control. With two buttons, a gesture button, and a scroll wheel, the mobile design is highly comfortable, and with Plug & Play installation you can get up and running quickly.” – Kensington
