“Kensington Orbit Wireless Trackball is SUPERB!”
Prior to the wireless, I had the wired Orbit trackball with the scroll ring, which I loved except for the wire. The only reason for 4 stars is that the wireless does not have the scroll ring, instead it has touch scrolling, which isn't quite as user friendly as the scroll ring. All of that being said, I own two. One for work and one for home/laptop use, because, let's face it, a regular mouse is for the birds. They cause too much repetitive use damage because you're constantly moving your entire arm trying to get the cursor to go where you want it to go.

“Simply the best”
I replaced my wired Logitech Mouseball with this Kensington wireless in favor of the Logitech "wireless". I think the Kensington is by far the better and it is truly wireless. I've encountered no problems. The trackball worked with Win8 right out of the box -- no driver needed. I came here to get the Kensington driver just to try it out -- really don't feel I need it. The unit is a perfect size, the ball could be a little larger, but that isn't any issue at all. I use mine for editting, graphic design and spreadsheets.
You can read more detail in my Amazon review of this Orbit Trackball.

“Had for over a year”
And I must admit--although this was a "temporary" trackball until I got a more expensive one--it has stood the test of time and durability. However the one thing that keeps this from getting a 5 star rating is the design. Its wireless yes, but the buttons on the sides really hurt its mobility. I always hit a button by mistake when moving it. And the size of the trackball itself is a bit of an issue especially when editing graphics and photographs--the main reason I went to the "trackball" than standard mouse.
But over all it is worth the money! Go for it! The logitech Trackman doesn't even come close to this reliable and very durable product by Kensington. 4/5 Stars
