Logitech TrackMan Live!
by Mike Ballard
PRODUCT REVIEWS column presents a favorable review of the Logitech
TrackMan Live! ($150) from Logitech Inc. of Fremont, CA (800, 510).
Describes the product as a cordless, hand-held trackball which
allows the control of presentations up to 30 feet away from a
computer, without having to point the device at the system. Requires
Windows 3.1/95/98 or NT 4.0, an open serial or PS/2 port, and an
3.5-inch disk drive for software installation. Notes that the
trackball movement is smooth and even, and tactile response from the
three mouse buttons is crisp and responsive. Warns that a small
problem with cross-talk occurred when used at high power (for
distances greater than 6 feet) in a room where another TrackMan
Live! was in use. Says that although the cost is steep, it is highly
recommended for those who regularly use a computer for large group
Contains one photo and a scorecard.
